40. Swing states, swing states, swing states...
Sat Sep 26, 2020, 11:50 PM
Sep 2020

That is where this election’s outcome lies. It’s mathematically possible for King Asswipe to win with an even greater popular vote loss than the 3,000,000 in 2016.

Which is why he’s campaigning mainly in Wisconsin, Michigan, Pennsylvania, North Carolina, Florida, etc.

Democrats are hostage to the goddamned Electoral College. Biden has to STOMP the orange baboon’s ass in most of the swing states, or else democracy is over.

I sure hope you're right! n/t CaliforniaPeggy Sep 2020 #1
