It’s possible that Kanye might be to Biden what arguably Perot was to Bush snr and Nader was to Gore.
92 with a weakening economy you could equally argue Bush snr was going to lose anyway.
00 would the Nader votes go to Gore in Florida? Or not appear at all.
As you also probably know, the US also doesn't have compulsory voting.
We just have to see how this plays out.
It would be funny watching this train wreck unfold if it wasnt about the election of a World Leader. God bless America. They are screwed.
I'm not convinced there is actually a choice that is right for the US right now. No wonder why people choose not to vote.I don't think too many people pay too much attention to the political shenanigans in the US these days. We don't watch the news, we try and avoid listening to Trump's daily carry on, even driving in the car I listen to spanish radio so I don't get stressed by whatever disaster he's causing. Truth is most people have already decided who they are going to vote for so no need to pay any attention.
I think US is too far gone on the covid trail sadly for a new president to make any difference by the time they are sworn in. So some might make choices based on other sentiments. Which gets back to the original comment. Agree re Trump but my bet is that he will stand down before the election anyway.The only choice that is right is to get rid of Trump - his leadership is literally killing people .
Wow - I don’t see that - he is way too narcissistic to do something like that. Unlike in Australia where the party controls things Presidents seem to be kings with no control over them at all. I tend to agree with Covid being out of control, but there are still things happening, like the republicans in the Senate want more money allocated to testing - White House is trying to reduce that money to zero. If Trump lost even though the new President doesn’t take over for months, surely they could assert some control over that. Or maybe not - the USA bemuses me. Worst thing that ever happened was Master FM moving there, as I have had to take an interest in what happens there.....I think US is too far gone on the covid trail sadly for a new president to make any difference by the time they are sworn in.

So what is Master FM's plan? How long has he been in the US and is he doing his Green Card/citizenship? Problem with being an expat is a lot of us were just going somewhere for a few years then you look around and it's been 10. At some point you do reach the point of no return back to Oz for the job market and you find yourself more aligned with your foreign home than your homeland. It's a slippery slope and especially when spouses/partners are from different countries of origin. Someone has to give in and be the expat.Worst thing that ever happened was Master FM moving there, as I have had to take an interest in what happens there.....
