    GB, I picked "Don't Know".


    Since you didn't vote for Trump, I'm curious who you did vote for that you liked better?

    I think Biden could have done better than Clinton. His polling was at 57% in places like Scranton, PA....hers was in the low 30s.

    I think anybody could have. Biden, Sanders, for sure. They were men, and didn't have 30 years of republican lies and propaganda to fight against that even had stupid democrats questioning Hillary

    He most certainly could have been beaten.

    Just as it could have been a landslide victory for someone like Bush, Rubio, or Kasich.

    Again....we had two of the most UNpopular candidates for the Presidency, in the history of our republic.

    Trump succeeded in being the less odious of the two.

    Thanks for the poll response....I see you picked Joe Biden.

    Obviously that isn't based on policy, given he and Clinton shared similar views.

    And I assume you'd deny it was due to sexism.


    So can I assume your idea that Biden could have beaten Trump was based on-

    A. no corruption charges?

    and/or B. likeability?

    C. Why not policy? Consistency and believability are part of a policy vote -- and though they had similar views, Biden would have been seen as more authentic and committed to populist policies.

    So, I'm not speaking for Rorschach, but for me the answer is A., B. and C.
