Fox is killing its viewers. Spiritually for years. Now quite literally.

Ahh yes. The GOP has decided to sacrifice the American people in a blood ritual to their true gods...The GDP and DOW.

The Corona crisis has revealed the *weakness* of the State in the West—that it fails at its most basic injunction; that it’s beholden to and overshadowed by outside forces: the stock market, partisan electioneering, PC, foreign interests, economic globalization, etc.

One thing over here is, the politicians really haven’t used it as an opportunity for politicking. All parties seem to be (largely) working together.

Refreshing, given the poisonous atmosphere during the General Election and leaving the EU shambles.

Does the phrase Retardican get used? It works better than Libtard due to the syllables.

I just saw an article that Trump is 10 points behind Biden, what does that actually mean? I really don’t understand the American electoral system.

How does this compare to prior elections?

I think those are just public opinion polls. Doesn't really mean anything if Trump can win the same states he did before. The DNC is still largely running on the platform that ANY Democrat is better than Trump, so Biden will have to convince the "purple states" like Ohio to go blue somehow.

Sorry, what I mean is my knowledge is VERY basic, I have no idea what ‘10 point lead’ means. Is that big? What does 10 points mean, States/Percentage of expected votes/something else?

Cheers, Con, will check them out and make sure I’m as prepared for the impending doom as possible.

I'd imagine it would be 10 percentage points, like maybe 35% of survey said they'd vote for Trump, 45% for Biden, 20% undecided, etc. Not sure about how that stacks up to previous surveys, just taking a shot in the dark :)
