    After talking to some of my family members that happen to be conservative, they believe that Biden's pick of Kamala Harris, as his running mate for this year's election, virtually guarantees that not only will Trump win again this year, but he'll do it in a record breaking landslide victory.   I don't know about that personally, as there's a lot going against Trump right now that even if he did win, I doubt seriously it would be in a landslide, as that's not realistic in my honest opinion.  However, what are your thoughts on this?

    Does Kamala Harris being Joe's running mate all but guarantee an easy victory for President Trump?  And if so, then does that mean he'll win in a landslide?   Or do you think it could work against Trump, and cause him to lose the 2020 election?   Please discuss.

      There is no way to predict this race... and the polls are useless.

      We have a Pandemic going on.... haven't one of those during a election in, oh, say 100 years.

      Most rational people are not going to hold the President responsible for the Pandemic.  Especially considering the rest of the world is fairing no better.

      Then we have these race riots going on... for months.  people are noticing what is going on in these Democrat led cities no matter how much CNN tries to blame it all on Trump.

      Mail-In Ballots... never had that in our history... talk about being able to commit fraud, this election will be ripe with it. 

      I don't foresee many States offering up any concrete results.

      I don't foresee either side accepting the results.

      I don't think she helped one bit... she was trashed by Tulsi Gabbard during the debates, no one was interested in her during the primaries.

      Creepy Sleepy Joe and Horrible Harris is not a very endearing or energizing ticket.

        We may have to put off the election. Have it next year. Why Not?
        Everything and everyone is on hold now anyway.

      In my view, she was a relatively safe pick. I found it odd a few months ago when he said he would be choosing a black woman. In my opinion, his history, and many remarks over the past many years proves him to be innately racist. So, not sure by choosing a black woman will help us forget his attitude when it comes to black citizens.

      Harris is a politician that plays by Democratic playbook, she will tell you just what you hope to hear, and tomorrow tell another crowd something else. She certainly did not get money to support her campaign, so I would think big money dislikes her, and would not appreciate her sitting in the White House, pulling the puppet strings.  She does have the ability to capture a crowd with her, Obama, like speeches.  But I think many of us have well gotten over being impressed by meaningless speeches. Most opting for a good agenda that we can recognize as one that will bring improvement to their personal lives and America. Many of us have recognized we can demand change, and if the right person is in the office, we will get the changes we desire. And yes,  there are many that feel the very opposite of my sentiment.

      I don't think Harris brings anything to the ticket one way or the other. Now, if he would have picked Warren, Oh yes that would have guaranteed his walking off into the sunset or returning to his cozy basement.

      It will be very interesting to see if our society chose to go forward or opt to return to the same old same old... Will innate common sense prevail or will just good old built-up hate prevail.  Just my view and I realize it's a raw view, but at this point I say it as I see it. Our divide is deep, and it did not reach this point without lots of intense feelings, and a passionate dislike for the current president.

        I did a tarot reading on Trumps re-election. I pulled the defeat card on the eleventh (final) pick.
        If he wins, I will never pull another tarot card.
        And I hope he wins.

      The Democratic groups I'm on Facebook with are all excited by the Harris pick.  They see her as a fighter, something that complements an experienced Biden.  The only people seeing her selection as a negative are Trump supporters, because let's face it, they see anything Democratic as a negative these days.

    Kamala Harris and Joe Biden are not to be voted for. Whomever does so, is not rational.
    It makes no sense to vote for such a ticket. The only reason to do so is out of pure hatred: hatred for Trump, America and the Constitution.

    Oh, you can proclaim it's because Trump is not nice and the founding fathers owned slaves and whites are racist and privileged, but really, its pure hatred against someone who had been misinterpreted, unappreciated and instead, villanized. This president is not given any credit for his genuine concern for the general welfare of American citizens and people in general. He wants good fortune and prosperity for all. So sinful. So hatable.

    Thankfully, in my view, Mrs. Harris has hurt his chances big time.
    Trump will win, (but not by a landslide,) and continue (or recover) the progress he began.
    We could have another four years of prosperity...
    and then Mr. Newsom, (short for new-socialism,) may run for president.

    Being a Canadian and totally impartial in this political circus, I can't help but wonder why democrats are seen as "socialists". I was born into a communist/socialist regime of ex-Yugoslavia, and you people have no clue what you are talking about when you imagine that socialism is possible in America. Not with your corporate economy. Not with rich people you have. Not with the general mentality of Americans that would never, and I mean NEVER accept that political crap. What I see is just using that "boogieman-word"  for badmouthing democrats. While they may not be the right choice for your next president, they are not "socialists". This reminds me a lot about Trump's policies having something to do with his hair, with the length of his fingers, and alike. These are cheap blows, and so is much of what Biden and Harris are being called these days.

      ... high taxes is what we are fighting, at this point. The tyranny of high taxes is crippling. Biden proclaimed, "If you vote for me you are voting for high taxes."

      Government overreach is what we are fighting as well.
      Already Biden is telling us to be responsible and wear masks. I want to throw my TV out the window when I hear him acting like a father for all *adult* citizens in America.

      Let us live according to our own propensity to protect our own health in any way we see fit based on (true) SCIENCE, I say.

      We must keep the freedoms and rights we have left. Biden and Harris could care less. They just want to glow in the spotlight, buff their rusty halos and preen their egos. I think that's why Harris was chosen. She looks (sorta) good on stage.

    If our political climate made sense, then Trump would be a shoe in. Biden has a history of racism, worked against busing and is responsible for shooting legislation which resulted in the incarceration of an entire generation of black youth.

    Harris is the descendent of slave owners, implemented the laws Biden helped intact, and laughed about her ability to do the things she incarcerated people for.

    These two are exactly what the left is railing against.

    But, we all know the political climate we live in so the election is up for grabs from either side.

      You are way off the mark.

      Trump is not the one that should have been a "shoe in".

      Andrew Yang, Tulsi Gabbard, SOMEONE relatively new OR who had long been supporting the Progressive and Liberal positions that the Democrats/Left have come to believe in (Warren, Sanders) should have been a "shoe in".... for Nominee.

      But we know the Democrat primaries are a complete farce, this was proven in 2015 when despite all the arm twisting and back room dealing they could muster, Clinton still couldn't clearly defeat Bernie Sanders.

      The same was true now, Sanders, despite a lackluster campaign and mediocre presence in the debates was actually winning the early primaries.

      The powers that be in the DNC stepped in, twisted some arms, made some deals, got most of the other candidates to suddenly drop out and endorse Biden... and WALA!  The least interesting, least liked candidate somehow started winning primaries in a landslide.

      No one liked Biden... except the Establishment.  The hack MSM kept putting out there that Americans loved Biden, that Biden was the only one who could beat Trump... just fabricated BS and lies, typical CNN and MSNBC "news"... all fabricated all phony... all the time.

      There is no one who really liked or thought Biden capable of being President.  Not 20 years ago, not 10 years ago, not now.

      Same for Harris, they propped her up an awful lot prior to her bowing out of the race... she got a lot of positive press... while the likes of Yang or Gabbard were character assassinated by the media.

      This crud ticket of Biden and Harris was decided over a year ago... and the Left leaning Media got their marching orders and the DNC insiders put out the propaganda and pulled the strings to make it happen.

      The DNC... and the Democratic Party... a total, corrupt, farce.

        Sanders should have won in California. How did he NOT?
        Some say evidence of rigging ... already.

        We aren't taking about what should have been, leading up to the nomination of Biden. We are taking about what may be, now that were know who the candidates on the ballot will be.

        Had the DNC nominated Yang I would have been highly interested in what he had to say.

        Ken, I have to agree with many points here to my supreme irritation. One moment JOe was trailing badly after Iowa, after an expected win in South Carolina, now he became the front runner sweeping the country. Yes, I was suspicious.

        He virtually came out of nowhere, did it have something to do with Bloomberg's  foray into the race?

        While we have our differences, we can agree about distaste and suspicion as to how all this rolled out. While on the surface everything seems kosher, something is not right.

        Consideration of the  populist non establishment view was ruled out in 2016 and again this time, so the corporate power and Wall Street control had never really been threatened as part and parcel of the  "system". It will perpetuate itself regardless of the view by the masses from either party, majority or otherwise.

        Maybe, it is all just an illusion to think that there are "two sides", maybe there has only really been one side, that side always stays in control and the labels the masses may assign to them could well be irrelevant.

        So, yes Ken,  I am suspicious.
