I was going to watch some of the highlights. Aaron Rupar does a lot of great snippets of his rallies. But not tonight. Iím going to enjoy this calm

2. It's been 4 years since we had a real President....

Joe was on his game. Trump was on his game, as well. The contrast - and stakes - for this country cannot be greater.

5. It feels good

to be calm and having some sanity.

It was good to listen to truth and honesty. That has been missing for a long time.

VP Biden will get us out of this darkness and hate.

11. I feel he would call in the experts on any situation and they would be allowed to talk freely...

with him and among themselves.

He's a consensus builder.

Something sorely lacking in this year of all years of crisis.

Ballots arrived today (Thursday the 15th) and my husband and I filled them out within an hour of the mailís arrival. Drove down to the official ballot drop box in our city hall parking lot, and dropped Ďem in, all signed and sealed.

Two more votes in for Biden/Harris!

As I comment here, I'm watching/listening dip stick with Mrs. Savanah G.

He has not addressed one thing for us, the people.

He's talking to fast, panicked. Still no plan for anything.

The con is full of ***t.

Watching on over the air TV isn't counted like cable and Nielson.

of proportion... but in general I thought he did great and many of his answers were very impressive. He's got great recall. Just a great guy overall.

25. I feel anxious

Because I'm rooting for him and I'm always nervous he'll say the wrong thing. That's not unique to Biden though. I remember being very nervous for Obama's first debate with McCain, and for his second and third debates with Romney after the first one went so poorly.

30. After Obama's 1st debate with McCain, I had full faith that he would deliver

I remember the 1st Romney debate as more of a lethargic performance by Obama and a very strong, well prepped performance from Romney. I had so much confidence in Obama, that I had no doubt that after that subpar debate that he would come back with his A game for the next two.

I feel more anxious about Joe because he has been gaffe prone at times and because the fate of humanity is kind of riding on this. But, I have no doubt that he will be a stable hand on the rudder as president, who will seek out and listen to the reasoned advice of experts across the board.

His cult voted for "chaos" and they got it in spades. That says a lot about him and his cult. The transition will more chaotic than we have ever seen before.

I'm pretty confident but we all need to GOTV. It would be a landslide if every Dem convinced one or two non voters to vote Biden.

35. I forced myself to watch Trump's Miami town hall, mostly to see him go off the rails again.

Halfway through Trump's performance, I was totally exhausted by his anger, aggression, obfuscation and manic lying. The guy really wears people out. This country won't survive four more years of Trump's unending chaos and confusion. Save us, Joe!

41. He wasn't my first choice....

But as the campaign season has progressed I've become more and more comfortable with Joe. No more anxiety about having chosen the right candidate, especially with Kamala as his VP. Whatever political differences we have, I believe he is a good and compassionate man who will make the American people his priority.

43. this

as a 70ish member of the Democratic Party, I have voted in many an election. I have voted again and I also feel a lot of anxiety over this election and the implied threat that trumps militias/brownshirts pose to our democracy when he overwhelmingly loses. May the forces opposed to d. trump be strong enough to put down the sedition he has implied with "stand back and stand by" and perp walk him off the White House grounds.

48. I saw a clip of Trump's townhall where the interviewer pointed out

the head of the FBI had testified before Congress that there was no appreciable voter fraud in this election.

Trump's reply: "Then he's not doing a very good job."

Fat Donnie disagrees with anyone who states facts which contradict the fantasy world he's created in his mind.
