There is only one poll that counts; the final count on November 3, 2020.

Trump needs to lose by many millions to show the door to him and everyone who supports him. That is completely possible. He lost the last election's popular vote and his polls are crashing.

In 139 days, we fire Donald Trump and every Republican we can who enables the worst man to ever hold elective office.

Opinion | New polls show Trump sinking under the seismic events of the moment:

@SirLotsaLocks

Agreed. We need to work together and get rid of this horrifying atrocity.

Biden was not my first choice, but 4 more years of Trump isn't going to bring us some surprise tactic where (we) progressives will simply be able to undo everything.

Plus, Biden will bring a Cabinet that's not destroying everything it runs and a VP that isn't Mike Pence.

I'm hopeful that people will get it right this time.

@NatashaRomanova We knew Trump has the object permanence of an infant. Turns out Pence's brain has regressed to that level as well. Being a Republican is bad for your development! @IronMan

@QueenRamonda Out of town & out of state counterprotesters too.

There's a good rationale for going to DC where 100,000 or more gather for protests and rallies no matter what your cause. Same with going your state capital, the nearest large city, or wherever your elected officials meet. It takes some real hatred to decide you need to take a trip to a tiny town far away to intimidate people calling for justice.

@mariahill

This man who has destroyed our economy, handed more than 100,000 people (and rising) death sentences, stoked the flames of racial hatred, ordered police and militia to attack peaceful protesters so he could have a photo op with a bible he never reads?

End Cash Bail now.
2/3 of Prisoners in California haven't been convicted but wait in jail because they can't afford bail - the rich folks, of course, are not among them. If you're stuck in jail you can't defend yourself, so the outcome is predetermined against the poor. The system is predatory. It's why "we have the best justice system money CAN BUY" it needs to end.

Activism can sometimes take the form of contacting dictionary editors. Words are important, and I'd say lexicographers are more aware of that than most people.

Drake University graduate Kennedy Mitchum, 22, has convinced Merriam-Webster editors to update the definition of to emphasize systemic racism, a concept that many white people evidently need to have defined.

Plus the voter suppression they are counting on and actively working at.

The opposition to Trump must vote in massive numbers.

@mariahill @QueenRamonda Don't let people forget that trump encouraged them to do this.

I'm sure a lot of Trumpers and insensitive jerks are going to flip out about a brand name change of a product that they probably never think about or use, but the story behind this is way racist and it should have been done a long time ago.

Change is good, though. Change comes from speaking up. Always speak up.

@IronMan It's like when small children think that they're invisible when they close their eyes, except that it's dangerous and not funny or cute at all.

Spider-Man :spidey: boosted

@QueenRamonda @mariahill @CallMeMJ @IronMan Yep. I don't ever want to hear anyone say again that it "doesn't matter who's president" or that the president "doesn't even have much power," which are just two of the fun things I used to hear ignorant cynics say.

First, it's a welcome sight to see protests everywhere and going still.

But why do the counter protesters get to pack guns and hide behind the flag and nothing happens? If a bunch of armed BLM protesters started moving toward a police line, all hell would break loose.

A tiny Ohio town’s Black Lives Matter event was overrun by armed counterprotesters:

Good move on the part of Kim Reynolds, amazingly. I hope there's not a weird catch.
