When asked how Biden got 80 million votes from the basement

The answer is that he didn’t. Biden didn’t actually have to campaign at all because 80 million were all votes to throw Trump out of office.
Just wish we had the judicial system where we could vote on his prison sentence.

The GOP are just pissed because they are constantly falling back on their old cliché positions and techniques and they couldn’t think of a new way to do anything

Why would you need algorithms to calculate votes that even a bean counter can tabulate?

A lot of people who voted for Biden didn't give a damn about Biden, but they did give a damn about Trump.

Biden was not my #1 draft pick for the nomination but I certainly saw that he had the better odds against Trump. But I would have voted for any logical person as opposed to Trump, and would have likely taken a chance on someone that I never heard of of he was the opposing name on the ballot. That is my point. Joe didn’t have to campaign at all to win
