Did you read the thread?
I'm not interested in the chatter at all, Vinny. I just thought it was funny that the President himself addressed your question.

I've said this before, but in case anyone missed it. I don't vote. I never vote. The ROI is too low. I arrange my life so that I can walk around any form of government that doesn't suit me.

I don't think I missed it. Just forgot it. But good find on your part. I liked doing the subsequent follow up.

I just started reading them. At first I was going to say 2 out of 3 responders were ant-Trump. Then I was going to raise it to 75%. Then 80%. Now, as I keep reading I'd say 90%.

On his own Twitter account why are so (relatively) few of his supporters chiming in? That does NOT seem to bode well for the election given that these ARE responses under Trump's retweet.

Vinny
Twitter is primarily a left-wing echo chamber.
Yes, a lot of his supporters have signed up to read his tweets, but most of them don't comment.

The state polls will be even farther off than they were in 2016, which is why I'm predicting a Trump landslide.

Here's why the polls will be so far off:

In 2016, people who supported Trump had to worry that they might lose friends if people found out.
In 2020, people who support Trump have to worry that their houses might be burned to the ground if people found out.

You forgot one little detail:
Assuming all that is perfectly accurate, he got elected President of the USA with no prior political or military experience, a feat never previously accomplished by anyone.

I would say that makes him a marketing genius.

Both fact? Or, your opinion?

On my Twitter list that I've created I get tons of tweets from Trump supporters who are not shy of stating their views.

I'm pretty sure it is a fact but I'll have to do some research to provide the data.

However, it is a fact that Twitter employees are extremely biased toward the left wing:

"But the people who build Twitter are biased, Dorsey admitted in an interview last month, saying out loud what everyone already knew: Twitter, like most tech companies in Silicon Valley, has a lot more left-leaning employees than right-leaners.

Twitter is so liberal, in fact, that conservative employees “don’t feel safe to express their opinions” within the company, Dorsey told NYU journalism professor Jay Rosen in a new interview published today on Recode Media."

See, most people, even including Trump supporters, just like a fun catchy tune and lyrics. They couldn't care less if some perverts also like the same song. And of course everybody knows the song is by and for perverts. Trump's DJ knows for sure that the song doesn't bother any supporters. So they play the song. Trump's supporters enjoy it. Plus he gets free publicity when the perverted liberals complain that he is stealing their music. It's a win-win. Trump knows all about win-wins.
So when do I get to hear the Rolling Stones - Sympathy for the Devil?

Vinny
That would be at a Biden Rally,If you can find one.

I hear Biden had to cancel a rally because he couldn't find a phone booth to hold it in.
