    ...for the next US president?

    This being an alleged democratic vote....your vote remains private unless you wish to divulge.

    So far, 8 votes Biden. Trump votes 0.

    Let's call the election now. Biden is the new president.

    Sure. Why should we be different than a political party I won't name in this post.

    What's wrong with sharing which one to vote for in a public forum?

    No one is hurt by it and people long forget what anyone says anyhow.

    I don't know. I didn't keep up with Biden either so hard to compare

    Actually, without them, you don't have the emotional drive (hatred) to stand a chance.

    Right now, I'm thinking that I won't vote. I'm a Progressive. I favor real structural change: A wealth tax, universal healthcare.

    The Democrats have given us Progressives the middle finger by offering Biden and Harris. Maybe if they lose to Trump again, they'll finally stop trying to protect the wealthy establishment.

    I don't know. I'll have to think about it.

    The EC and the system of winner takes all already does an exceedingly good job at that.

    Let's hope that such progressives - those who would sacrifice progress on the alter of some pretense of progressive purity - are few and far between.

    This forum is always going to say Biden because of the types that come here. But, reality is Harris is a terrible VP pick, and Biden is a globalist old-fogey that few people actually like. So, those working people who sweat all day and have homes -- they're not voting for these guys. Young idealists don't even like Biden either, so voting Biden for that reason isn't very captivating -- they probably won't even come to the polls.

    Personally, I wish there were better candidates but between Biden and Trump I'll vote Trump just because he's not interested in selling us out to China, lol. Sometimes, the issues are larger that then other things. Secondly, Trump is majorly against child trafficking and Biden is like, "whatever", on that issue. So, maybe that's another concern of mine.

    I think it's fair to assume that the American people know that Trump supporters are the reason Trump is the president. The supporters are responsible (and disgruntled Bernie supporters) for America's collapse. Poor judgment doesn't deserve to be respected. That's dangerous.

    I agree that the Biden/Harris ticket is poor judgement on the Democrats behalf.

    Please enlighten me how continuing to vote for the status quo is progress? (You know the saying about doing the same thing over and over again and expecting a different result?)

    Poor judgment? According to you? Watch this, which ticket would you have preferred since you're a democrat and aren't happy?

    I said "none."

    As someone who isn't an American citizen (or even resident), it would be illegal for me to vote in your election.
