Yes, Biden won the election; he currently has a 51-47.3 lead in the popular vote and a 79.15 to 73.4 million lead (massive turnout!)
But the Democrats did rather poorly in Congress; we still don’t know the carnage but we lost House seats and will be extremely fortunate to eek out a tie in the Senate (I don’t expect us to; and yes, I chipped in).
But, how will we win purple Congressional Districts and purple states?
There are some issues.
Bill Maher has some words of wisdom..well worth listening to:
Personal opinion Note that Democrats have LOST ground with minorities; this is NOT limited to Cubans in Florida:
What is going on? Of course, politics is local too, but on a global scale, I’d say that Latinos broadly reject “wokeness”:
No one wants “educated” wokes coming in to “educate us” on what is appropriate for ourselves.
And, I honestly think that Democrats, at least the very liberal ones, appear to have a hostility to accomplishment and success ..they took a sensible statement by Obama “you didn’t build that..” (meaning the PUBLIC INFRASTRUCTURE by which people and goods get to businesses) to mean “you didn’t earn that..”; “success” is equated with “privilege.”
Who in the hell wants to aspire to being a loser or a victim?
I enjoy politics, reading, science, running, walking, (racewalking and ultrawalking) hiking, swimming, yoga, weight lifting, cycling and reading.
I also follow football (college and pro), basketball (men and women) and baseball (minor league and college)
