    Biden doing his best not to challenge Trump

    Biden VP pick: Kamala Harris chosen as running mate - BBC News

    (No idea is she is qualified enough but if you’re going to turn moderate republicans away from Trump this isn’t the way to do it)
    “Live a good life. If there are gods and they are just, then they will not care how devout you have been, but will welcome you based on the virtues you have lived by. If there are gods, but unjust, then you should not want to worship them. If there are no gods, then you will be gone, but will have lived a noble life that will live on in the memories of your loved ones.”

    Why? Are you suggesting even moderate republicans are racist?

    No sexist, I’m thinking the fact she’s female is more an issue than race

    Ah ... you know what, I never really twigged she was a woman. I mean, it's obvious she's a woman but I never twigged about that being an issue. Isn't the world a strange place that if someone isn't a white (grey) middle age bloke then we assume a group of people won't vote for them?

    The world is truly fooked up.

    No one is taking moderate Republicans away from Trump. He didn't win 2016 by capturing moderate Republicans. They are always fighting for independents. Election is about independents plus getting your party out to vote and getting the other party to stay home. No one is getting anyone to switch sides, it just doesn't happen.

    Yep, this. There's been very limited switching in recent memory (we're talking about less than 10% of Republicans and Democrats) of whom almost all do not engage much with politics. Once you've chosen your party as a partisan/engaged voter, there's basically no switching. With this election, I expect there will be even less switching than normal. It's all about independents and getting out the vote, which is why Trump is suddenly interested in the USPS.

    Some Republicans are actually intelligent.

    Some of the attack ads from The Lincoln Project and Republican Voters Against Trump are absolutely brutal.

    I don't know. CBS is privately owned by a lifelong Democrat financer along with CBS itself donating directly to Democrat party. Look it up for yourself.

    Not even any point reading that.

    News in USA is really messed up. Hard to get anything resembling impartial news. Everything is selectively reported from one side.
