    Debate Preview and 11 Reasons Why Biden Will Win in November

    Debate Preview and 11 Reasons Why Biden Will Win in November

    Markos joins #ThursdayKos to role play tonight's debate as Biden, while Rev. Mark role plays Trump, and to discuss how Biden maneuvered Trump into an early debate, which Markos believes works in Biden's favor. Both agree Biden needs to simply appear coherent to debunk Republican allegations of cognitive decline.
    And Markos lists 11 reasons why he believes Biden will win the upcoming election, including Trump's demographic max-out, Dems special election performance, and the impact of Trump's legal troubles, how inflation and immigration might affect voter sentiments.
    And it would not be a show without mentioning the insane QAnon conspiracy theories surrounding Biden, including the one that suggests Biden has several body doubles. 😳

There is democratic power. We need more democratic power. Vote in your local democrat to leverage democratic power to get things going for all people in the country. Fight against the NEW BIG GOVERNMENT: republicans taking over your own body, your privacy, your Health Care, your right to vote, tax cuts for the corporate rich. Things I gathered as a “Podrishioner”.
