Biden haters may or may not get what they want

Go ahead and insult his supporters all day and every day. And then on election day, after being insulted, they will say "time to stop Trump" and vote for the Democratic candidate.

Pretty sure the same can be said of supporters of Harris, Warren, Booker, and other Democratic candidates.

in the general. Both with donations and advocacy and GOTV.

It's not really rocket science.

Additionally, my vote would never be affected if an anonymous person on the internet "insulted" me. Who cares.

That's not rocket science either - there may or may not be plenty of jerks on DU, but someone being mean to me doesn't change my convictions.

Thanks for the thread.

But, I wouldn't vote for anyone who will be 80 years old before the end of their first term. The presidency is a very demanding job which would be even more challenging for the most vigorous octogenarian.
