Visiting Raw Story sometimes crashes my browser or freezes my computer.
I think it is the sheer quantity of adds and popups.

Democrats want him prosecuted for his many crimes. Corporate media wants him indicted because the trial would be very good for business. His extremist supporters are probably hoping his arrrest will spark further violence. And most Republicans in office, though they won't openly admit it, just want to be rid of the guy. I'd bet even Trump wants to be indicted; he'd love the attention and he could fundraise the hell out of it.

You can basically use ANY address @getnada.com or one of their many domains.



And never visit there, or visit there.
Emails are deleted after one month, and of course, if anyone visits that address, they can read your spam.

No sign up. No password. No privacy. It's a public bit bucket.

IF you have anything useful sent to it, just delete it (like a pdf you have to give an email address to get) once you download it.

I will get no spam from them!!!

It would be about as representative of the US population as a whole as a DU poll.

AND if they are taking POLLS from the DEM side of things, it's worth it to me.

You are entitled to your opinion, and do what you like.


AT THE MOMENT, it's still a free country.

polls of this type, aimed toward the known biases of the publication's readers and producing the expected results, don't have much statistical validity.

It provides balance.

Those other polls are worded in ways that skew as well, making it impossible to answer a simple question like this.

THIS IS A STRAIGHT FORWARD question.

Yes or No?

IF the polls asked DU support Biden, Yes or No? Without all the nuanced crap that simply shows people HAVE minds and opinions, but doesn't mean we are AGAINST him, Biden's numbers would be MUCH better.

AND this is WAY better than the Dem Governor's Association. I would LOVE to take their polls if I didn't have to pay money to do so.
