In this morning’s thread, someone pointed out that Biden is more likable in general. I would argue he is likable for the primary. GE? No, no, now Establishment, you are dealing with a different kettle of fish. Because of that what it is: a bunch of no party voters. We dominate the electorate. Michael Moore has said that many many times.
I think the overwhelming majority of people on the left understand that with politics comes some degree of compromise, but the problem with the 2016 & 2020 general elections is that they're not asked to meet halfway, they're asked to give up on EVERY issue they care about.

Now Establishment media and other DNC corrupt types, answer the following for me, as an indie voter. I’ve already voted my primary choice, and you, the Establishment, wanted your tax cuts and hardly spend any money on the working poor who need it the worst. The polls may show Biden ahead, but his honeymoon will be for another couple of months. Then what?
Why do you keep assigning responsibility to those who criticize Biden’s policies rather than Biden for adopting those policies in the first place? Why is it our job to pretend politicians are better than they are, rather than their job to be better? https://t.co/OdVV3o9ncK

People were pointing out that Biden was a shit candidate literally from the day he announced. They always knew. But they lied about Bernie and his platform, let Joe lie about his record and his platform, and they did it to keep working people on the losing side of the class war.

This race is about top vs bottom, and so far your party is losing to lying GoPers as they push more left in rhetoric. The banks continue to win, and poor people get crumbs if anything. Trump has got the mic and the media will continue to show his pressers, free of charge. GOP doesn’t even have to spend any media dollars as the 2 hour pressers double as campaign spots.
In Joe Biden's virtual town hall, he gets the time frame between now and November WRONG by well over a year.

Now, what is Biden going to do? This is a serious marketing issue. Rely on Ron Klein to make all of his online appearances? or other surrogates while he drinks champagne with his banksters?
