Trump blew his lead. Now he's coming from behind, he's actually better that way. Democratic Party shouldn't get too complacent, the polls have always been unfair to Trump.

Cans and sandwiches. Sad.

12:12 it was mentioned in the news the other day that the dimwit pollsters were calling the same dimwit voters over and over again to jack up rapey joes polling numbers... don’t know if it’s true or not but I don’t put anything past the despicable dimwits at this point.

^^Great. Maybe spend some time doing something productive instead of defining your rapidly dwindling life by political divisions. You obviously have nothing else in your failed life to occupy your time. Maybe if you weren't such a horrible person, you might have friends or family instead of crying on here all day. Do better!

12:32 you mean like you? Nobody wants to be as sorry as you’ve proven to be day in and day out. Suicide is your last option, take it.

The good old MSM Lets see how everyone can now dredge up the white supremacy issue again for the 100th time. Get over yourselves with this. The proud boys are a patriot group there's a huge difference but then again liberals aren't real smart, they think ANTIFA is an idea as per Joe Biden who made an ass out of himself at the debate.

Oh almost forgot. The street painting BLM isn't that racist? YES IT IS.

Almost forgot again. 20 to 30% of the proud boys are minorities. Ha Ha Ha Ha H Ha

If the Democrats are so sure that Biden is winning then why is the only thing that they have been harping about since the debate the race card?

In a March 2016 debate where Trump was asked by the same Chris Wallace do you denounce the KKK Trump said yes of course I already tweeted that. Yet lib Wallace has to ask the question again because the Dems are losing much of the black vote they are counting on due to the wonderful idiots of BLM. Too funny!

If anyone is depending upon the proud boys to foment a revolution they are going to be awfully surprised. They don’t have near the numbers, organization, or the support that AntiFA/BLM enjoy.
