Trump's Hometown Newspaper Urges People Not To Vote For Him

If Trump thought his relocation to Florida would see him beloved in a red state, he is surely disappointed, as The Palm Beach Post has published an editorial urging voters to support Joe Biden instead of Donald Trump. The paper wrote in part: And sure, though it seems increasingly unlikely, he could win a round or two in the courts. And if he won a new term in office, he could erase any impact that the prosecutions might have had. But you’ll know what he did.

So, before that happens, as you consider your ballot, though you might prefer his tilt to the right to Biden’s tilt to the left, ask yourself if this is the quality of a man who should represent you, speak for you, act in your name, be the master of your universe. Don’t listen to the pundits. Just look at the evidence.

Consider President Biden's performance, as well: Unquestioned support for our allies; for women's autonomy; for union protection of middle-class jobs; for infrastructure improvement; for high-tech industry expansion; for manufacturing resurgence; for climate repair; for common sense gun regulations. Inflation is low, employment, high. Don't listen to the noise; look at the evidence.

You have a chance to alert the Republican political class that has fallen in line behind Trump and the fringe. GOP leaders think extreme is what you want. But is it? If indeed you’re an independent-minded sort, let the evidence speak to you. And then speak to them with your votes.

As many of us have here. I hope enough of us vote and end this nightmare and then I don’t care where he goes.

9. Palm Beach County is majority Democrat

I lived in Palm Beach County for several years. Just moved to Southern California.
Palm Beach County is mostly Democrats, as is Broward County and Dade County. All of the South East of Florida in other words.

The Palm Beach Post represents that constituency. Leans democrat. So the news that they recommend not voting for Drumpf is not a surprise.
