Also, the keyboard no longer appears automatically when clicking reply. Are you being paid by the number of extra times users have to tap the screen?

Tbh, I don't download that many pictures. The keyboard not popping up might become the bigger issue. Let me know if you need debug logs or something...

Trump is leading Biden in the swing states.

Jewish people are mad at Biden, Muslims are mad at Biden, young people are mad at Biden.

The youngsters I feel for. They're stupid, and it's not their fault.

If Trump takes power after an honest election, and with Biden in power it probably will be, at least I can enjoy the face eating that follows, among those old enough to have known better.

Your opening statement is doing exactly that (here to argue polls).

Your conclusion logically follows from the thing you claim not to be here to do.

As your primary school maths teacher would have said.. "right answer, wrong working".

Almost everyone is concerned with attrition in the Democratic ranks, but if you are concerned then quoting unreliable polls turns your concern into a self-fulfilling prophecy, making you culpable for the very thing you are warning against.

New polls showing genocide joe is fucked. No one is talking about COVID, because apparently you’re all brain damaged murderers. I really don’t understand. May 13, 2021. Biden said, TAKE OFF YOUR MASKS. WE WON! Democrats listened. They lived their lives masks free and killed and killed through spreading disease in biden’s name. Since that date > 660k americans died of covid. More than 1/2 of covid deaths occured AFTER BIDEN DECLARED VICTORY.

Can anyone explain to me why they don’t care about this? Blame Joe for 30K+ in a genocide, i agree, Joe could have done something. But why is no one blaming him for 660k+ Americans, dead? His own country! He failed. The numbers under trump would not have been any different.

So fuck you Joe, you lost my vote, and you’re about to lose an election.

The Biden admin needs better PR, ASAP:

"Majorities know little or nothing about the Biden admin's INFRA bill, CHIPS act, ARP & IRA. While 40% of respondents said Biden has done more than Trump on INFRA, 37% said Trump had done more.

It's largely a media problem, large chunk is Fox News & Sinclair, their local affiliate, RW radio... If Biden did anything good, they won't hear it, but they'll hear lies, or gross distortions of the truth-."

But you can ignore them if they are off!

In fact you are obligated to do so!

If you filled your car with gas, but the fuel light didn't go off, you wouldn't go back and try to put more fuel in!

You would realise the light/sensor was broken and plan on finding another way to tell when you running low.

Nor would could keep calling the auto rescue asking them to come and bring you fuel just because your fuel light is on!

Wer die Anerkennung eines palästinensischen Staates, an den Deutschland seit dem Oslo-Abkommen seit über 30 Jahren unterstützt, als Vergleich für die "Unterstützung eines Terrorstaates" und/oder die Leugnung des Existenzrechts Israels ansieht, hat 80 Jahre mit der Aussage "nie wieder" gelogen und besitzt nicht die geistigen Fähigkeiten, Grautöne zu verarbeiten, zu schweigen von der grundlegenden menschlichen Empathie, die zu dem unsozialen Zustand beiträgt, unter dem wir heute leiden.

A legal observation/query from a non-lawyer--I'd appreciate knowing if I'm off base here:

When talking about US presidential election nightmare scenarios, people in political media keep repeating the idea that it would be possible to force a contingent Congressional election by disqualifying electors so that "nobody gets to 270".

I am not a constitutional lawyer but it seems to me that that is wrong. What the 12th Amendment says is that a contingent election happens if no candidate gets "a majority of the whole number of Electors appointed".

So if the electoral votes are divided between just two candidates, you're not going to force a contingent election just by somehow disqualifying a bunch of electors to "get below 270"--unless you can make it a tie. If the electors are somehow disqualified, they're not "Electors appointed", and the magic threshold is no longer 270. It's a majority of whatever number of votes you have left.

The contingent election is supposed to be about resolving ties or three- or more-way splits. That kind of thing could certainly happen--we saw a lot of ridiculous rogue-elector behavior in 2016, some of it seemingly based on the electors themselves not understanding how any of this works (like the Democratic electors who cast electoral votes for Colin Powell, in the hope that they would somehow entice some Republican electors to join them). I would hope the Democratic Party is being more diligent about that this time.

But I don't think the 12th Amendment is saying you can "get below 270" and thereby force a contingent election just by muddying the waters and keeping electoral votes from being counted at all. Which may not stop people from trying.
