It’s funny you see Trumpers yelling at Mark Ruffalo and Sam Elliott saying they’re never gonna watch their movies again and I just laugh. But I honestly don’t want to watch James Woods anymore and that sucks because Diggstown was a fantastic movie.

I'm sure like most of you, I don't have a problem with that specifically. It's the hardcore Trumpican blind loyalty thing.

Keep in mind that Maricopa county kept voting Joe Arpaio in as sheriff.

Biden hasn't even officially been declared the winner yet and the country already got a little bit smarter.

And dumbass did it in the Whitehouse,
Imagine being a fact checker and having to listen to that.

Different times. He got voted out last cycle. The state is and should be blue for the conceivable future.

That asshole is the only thing I think of when I hear the name of that county and have for a long time.

So maybe there will be some redemption.

Serious question, since you're an Arizonan. How much of Trump's defeat (assuming the numbers hold up) do you attribute to his feud with John McCain? I mean, that guy is really loved and respected there. It would be like going to Hawaii and making derogatory comments about Spam. (If you think it's disrespectful to compare John McCain to Spam, you've never met an islander. I was at a Pacific Islander festival and made a negative reference to spam and this massive island dude was ready to beat the crap out of me till I clarified I meant the junk E-mail kind )

No, I don’t know what that is. I may be on a DVD Internet forum, but I’m not that big of a nerd.

Maybe some, but not the main factor. This state (most likely) turned blue as a result of more Hispanics and tons of Californians moving here. We are one of the fastest growing states and counties in the country.

I mean Sinema won over McSally a few years ago before he shit all over McCain. It was already trending that way. My guess is this will turn blue this election and stay that way for the foreseeable future.

My genius Trump loving friend claims if Biden loses, it’ll be because of Harris. Apparently AZ hates her and despises CA.

I only saw some excerpts from Tump’s presser, but feel this is appropriate.

So with it being this close...If in April, 2020, Trump had come out and said "Hey, we don't know enough about this virus, but everyone should wear a mask"...and then used a mask off camera, would he have won?

I bet if there was no pandemic Trump would have won easily since no scandal can derail him except 2020.

Keep in mind, I was wrong, again, about this election, thinking Biden wins PA easily and I go to bed knowing that I voted for a winner. Alas, my first ever vote for a Democrat was for naught, at least in my state. Still think Biden pulls it out, but damn is this messy.

Larger takeaway, the GOP, trump or not, is not going away anytime soon and at least some of their message resonates with voters, not all of whom are racist, or Cuban, or rednecks.
The Christians probably like that he has put more conservative judges in the Supreme Court and even though they might not approve of Trump they love his policies.

My former barber who was Filipino I know voted for Trump and she was a big Christian too.
