    My sense is that it is polarizing those already polarized. Red is getting much deeper red and blue much deeper blue.

    I’m sure red Republicans in rural counties think it’s great.

    at least in Georgia, the youth vote doubled after demonstrations/protests began and increased all the way into election day; particularly African American youth. And Democratic turnout surged past Republican, ~52/48%.

    It's encouraging to see people taking to the streets so much the last few years. I hope it doesn't stop and we don't return to slacktivism if/when Biden is elected though.

    Imagine we've got this shit going on and we have a prosecutor that made they're career jailing black and brown people in the wings behind Biden. It's disgusting, I trust her even less to do any kind of reform vs Biden.

    Whose the right choice? I think if warren endorsed joe it would be easy. But I also think that with the “you ain’t black” and with the current affairs, taking an African American is the smartest choice

    Yeah she's terrible. It would just confirm all the criticism about Biden being out of touch. I can't imagine they're inept enough to pick a cop at this moment but it would be pretty on-brand for The Democrats.

    Warren is obviously the best choice but I really don’t care and don’t think it will matter unless they pick Susan Rice and Bill Barr has her arrested or something like that.

    Biden's "you aint black" comments don't hurt him. Old black people are still going to go out in droves to vote for him. Biden's problem will be getting Bernie's base to show up but they want Republicans. If anything Republicans will probably like him more for those comments.

    I don't have an issue with Warren being VP so I don't see the point, although I'd love Tammy Baldwin over Warren. I know that won't happen though because progressives don't get anything good in America.

    It sucks that Kamala has such a shitty law enforcement background and has such narrowly scoped plans because she hits a lot of good marks, very liberal Senator with passionate oratory skills and a POC female. I would be highly unenthused if she was the selection but just like "Biden isn't Trump at least," "Kamala isn't Klobuchar at least."

    Yeah I know she's trash. Her positions are clearly left of Klob, she's granted a lot of leniency being a CA Senator so she takes up pretty liberal positions as opposed to old guard CA toadies like Feinstein and Pelosi.

    Being left of Feinstein and Pelosi isn't saying much. They're basically old school Republicans. God if Buttar can upset Pelosi in November that would be incredible. Getting rid of her ass would be so good for this country.

    having to go into more states than expected is obviously going to hurt the logistics of a reelection campaign. Fighting for states they never dreamed of losing 2 years ago.

    I’ve mentioned this before and maybe it’s bc I’m biased, but I’ve been thinking Iowa was going to elect a democratic senator in Nov for awhile now.

    Not a lot of people like Ernst here. Iowa also went 3/4 dems in Congress and the only one that wasn’t is Steve King who has the most red neck areas of Iowa.

    The lowest hanging fruit would probably be student debt relief combined with a 5k/yr tuition plan for state college (that being the total contribution for all students). That alone could energize a whole gen of younger voters.

    COVID-19 changed my calculus on HC. I absolutely believe this has created a window to push M4A, but then Biden threw cold water on it so I’m not holding out hope there...

    I'm resigned to it being Kamala even though she sucks and she's not exactly popular in the black community. Still hoping for Warren, but given the climate, the optics may not allow for a non POC.
