Yea, there are a good number of us that go wtf whenever he just spouts off on Twitter. When you think he can't get any lower, he just does somehow. It is astounding.

It isn't really about the states that always go blue or the states that always go red. Those states are going their color regardless of the candidates. It's the swing states where Trump beat Clinton only by about 100,000 people where everything will play out. Who knows though what will happen though?

Good luck and get better.

I think it all depends on how the fight against covid turns out. If the economy flounders and covid takes out a lot of people that may give Biden more of a chance. I mean will people really want a guy that led the economy down the crapper and had a poor response to be a pandemic? Things could have been somewhat better here.

How big of chance though will Biden have? Time will tell. Who knows what the covid situation next week will be like?

That’s just awful. RIP. People can’t play games out here or else you going to cost someone else their life.

It appears a lot of Dem voters really want someone that is more middle of the line. They aren’t willing to go in for someone like Bernie. It’s good old Joe to them. Also people came out for Biden a lot more than they did for Hillary in 2016.

Looking at some of these comments, waterbeds seem like a bad experience overall. I don't see how these things could have been so popular. I would have probably not enjoyed it at all. The last thing I would want is to wake up all wet during my sleep.

I really think if Bernie was ten years younger, then he would have a stronger chance of getting the nomination. He gets people going and believing in him. However no one really wants a really old president in America. Sure Biden is out there as well not much younger than Bernie but I am not sure people really want him either.

Yang has an interesting idea with the freedom dividend. However I am not sure he will gain enough momentum to be the nominee. I also think if you're in for someone like Sanders or Warren, you aren't going to change your mind for Yang. Warren or Sanders have better shots of getting the nomination, why throw your support towards someone that is barely scratching the surface at the moment.

What kind of questions would ideally be on a short application?

Is there anything in particular you would have to have an idea of to join hubski?

Some people have different interests or ideas than others. Whatever questions are thought of could deter some potential members just because they don't like the questions.

Well since I joined a couple of years ago, I have nothing to worry about unless I lose this account somehow. But right now, I am safe.
