21. Moore would be correct in a popular vote general election

 

But we have the EC and unfortunately, young people and POC are fleeing the rust belt states and going south. And guess what they're leaving behind? Older, white voters. Look at Iowa and Ohio. They are getting older and whiter. So although Moore is correct in the abstract, at the micro level, he is wrong. Hell, if we could elect a president by popular vote, we could just run up the score in CA and NY and call it a day, but it doesn't work that way.
If I were to vote in a presidential
primary today, I would vote for:
Joe Biden
