Can't see anyway of this being resolved that doesn't include an all out fascist coup, or trump being dragged out of the white house by the military at this point.

And why would he? He's so far been very successful stepping over the law.
Yea but what's the implication of that then? Does he want people to fight for him if he loses?

Or maybe he expects people won't fight him, at least not the ones who could make a difference.

Trump and the GOP has gone so far with the voter suppression tactics any win for them won't be legitimate, it's the fascist takeover path.

It's either voter suppression, or voter shaming ("you ain't black", "you're racist", "They skinfolk but they aren't kinfolk"). Absentee ballots for Trump got discarded, Mail voting called into question, US Postal Union supports Biden. and the list goes on and on. it's about as clusterfucky as clusterfucks can be.

I don't see how any candidate can get a clean win. People appear to be guided by whichever candidate presents the lower existential threat.

Trump knows the debate is a waste of time and no amount of fact checking will hurt him, he basically can say anything at this point and it wont matter, all he needs to do is starve biden of airtime.

moderator did a semi-ok job of giving biden some clear air, but yeah, shit-show.

Think they really need to start turning the opposite mics off. Trump will turn anything into shitshow otherwise.

But that doesn't cause the drama, but do agree.
Make it an actual fucking debate.

Funniest Biden quote for me was: "Of the 20, 200 million, 200 thousand people that have died on his watch - how many of those have survived?"

It's weird, I just have no interest in watching the "debate". It would not add anything to my understanding of anything and would not be entertaining. I don't even want to read a summary.

This South Park episode rings true every four years in the USA, almost like clockwork.

True, although also true for our leaders debate. No interest in the tribal displays.

The smaller party debates seems much more fruitful, or maybe a dream dangled just out of reach.

I was more thinking of the Hunter Biden as mentioned here, but I suppose they may be the same person.

"It's just too perfect. A laptop is dropped off to a blind computer repairman in the name of Hunter Biden — in the middle of a presidential election — that happens to be filled with extensive documents along with videos of sex and drug use, and it ends up in the hands of the president's lawyer, who publicly admits to working closely with a Ukrainian official that the Trump administration itself has sanctioned as a Russian intelligence asset attempting to interfere in the presidential campaign,"
Sounds legit

Because it's 2020, the October Surprise is that Borat checks in to demonstrate that Trump's inner circle are vulnerable to blackmail by Russian agents.

Turns out it was Giuliani himself that was most compromised by Borat's new film.

I dunno about you guys, but I'm really looking forward to a post-Trump world.

Also, it doesn't have to be the way it is. It could be like the governor race for Utah, for instance.

Yeah, may need to wait 4 more years for that post-Trump world. "the big guy" is going to have to go out for a lot more ice cream to move this story under the bridge.

Isn't that, you know, desperate? The former business partner of your opponent’s son.

Definitely desperate. It won't convince anyone who isn't already convinced.

I refuse to believe anyone's on the fence here.
It's so tribal that these sorts of displays are not going to sway anyone.

The only inkling of swaying I've seen in this election are from Trump supporters who can't believe that the thing they were totally OK with happening to other people, is starting to happen to them. But despite all of that, they remain fiercely loyal.

Example 1
Example 2

I understood that unlike 2016, this time around there are very few undecided voters, as a lot of people have already made up their mind and voted early.
