    People live in counties. Those people vote.

    People vote. Counties do not.

    The county vote is just as relevant in presidential elections as the popular vote. The county vote shows how wide spread Trump's popularity is. I see why you don't like it.

    Counties are land. Land does not vote.

    A map showing which candidate carried the peoples vote within a county is deceptive and deceiving since there is a huge disparity in the number of people voting within a county. That is why maps which attempt to show Trumps so called popularity is by county are intellectually fraudulent and draw the entirely wrong conclusion when viewers look at them.

    They are the tools of charlatans and snake oil salesmen.

    The low turnouts at his rallies coupled with things like this poll show Biden offers little for the Black voter.

    That and many want to forget Biden was very cozy with the racist in the Democrat party.
    Biden IMO is a sure loser if the nominee.
    'People will sit at home': Sanders supporters threaten to boycott vote if Democrats pick a centrist.

    Whoever gets the Democratic nomination IMO Trump should get electoral votes from 29 to 35 states.
    I would say Sanders has the best chance among the democrats'

    https://www.realclearpolitics.com/el...20_nomination/

    As of January 12th, Odds averaged from Bookmaker, Bet Online, BetFair, Spread Ex,
    & 32 Red.

    Betting Odds
    Biden 32.6
    Sanders 32.1
    Warren 14.2
    Bloomberg 12.5
    Buttigieg 9.1
    Yang 4.9
    Clinton 4.1
    Klobuchar 2.7
    Obama 1.3
    Steyer 1.3
    Gabbard 1.3
    Patrick 0.8

    Bernie has 1/3 of the Democrats in his corner & say the voter total on the Dem side may be 65 million. of the 1/3 22 million
    in Bernie's corner if only 20% are so cult like for Bernie that they stay home that's over 4 million potential votes subtracted

    DES MOINES, Iowa Bernie Sanders supporters in Iowa are warning that a lack of enthusiasm for Joe Biden could bring
    the same result the nomination of another milquetoast Democrat did four years ago: electing Donald Trump.

    Nominating a career center-left candidate such as Biden, the former vice president and 36-year Delaware
    senator, would dampen enthusiasm by the liberal populist grassroots, Sanders backers contend.

    Gee, states are land too. If you get enough of them, you will be President. Your logic seems retarded to say the least.

    Biden has more baggage than a Red Cap. That is why Obama won't even support him. When Trump starts dissecting him his support will melt away. You are right about Bernie supporters, it is Bernie or no one. Biden is not going to give them free stuff, why would they follow him.

    Sanders has even less chance. He has enthusiasm in the Socialist crowd but no one outside that group and avid Trump haters will support him. He could never pull more than 35% of the electorate.

    Outside of a few lemmings who are stupid enough to think that Bernie will give them the free stuff he promises, these old geezers have no appeal to young voters either.

    I think the Trump rallies reflect what is happening. 40% of the attendees are democrats and independents. Trump is also making inroads in the Black and Hispanic vote. The whole Democrat program is nothing but Orange Man Evil and programs that are so ridiculously costly that they could never be implemented. The voters are smarter than that. Beyond that the Democrats are alienating voters right and left. Ban guns, there are 70 million gun owners they want to screw. Ban coal, that will ruin the coal and railroad industries. Take away company paid healthcare, over 100 million people are happy with that system. The fiasco with the Kavanaugh exposed their Machiavellian methods and we are seeing more of it with the Trump investigations and impeachment. They play to the hate of the hard left but what it really does is alienate everyone else. Trump is taking in record donations from hundreds of thousands of new donors and people are begging to work on his campaign. The election is Trump's to lose. Nothing or no one the Democrats have can beat him.
