    This trend in WI is not good for Biden




    Other swing states.





    In other states the trend is a little better.

    We all know they would, they are keeping 2 recent polling results that have Biden winning out of their average.

    "RCP is doing everything in their power to not let Biden get ahead in their average and it's very funny."

    https://infrastructurereportcard.org/state-item/oklahoma/

    Oklahoma faces infrastructure challenges of its own. For example, driving on roads in need of repair in Oklahoma costs each driver $394 per year, and 10.2% of bridges are rated structurally deficient. Drinking water needs in Oklahoma are an estimated $6.9 billion. 449 dams are considered to be high-hazard potential. The state’s schools have an estimated capital expenditure gap of $624 million. This deteriorating infrastructure impedes Oklahoma’s ability to compete in an increasingly global marketplace. Success in a 21st-century economy requires serious, sustained leadership on infrastructure investment at all levels of government. Delaying these investments only escalates the cost and risks of an aging infrastructure system, an option that the country, Oklahoma, and families can no longer afford.

    Brazil has serious issues in many aspects. Can't argue with that. Post-Colonial era brought many challenges in areas around the world.
    USA deals with challenges since 1865. American Civil War. A lot of divisions among states, levels of development are different, racial, religious problems.

    Yeah but you said they have “no infrastructure.” That’s a lot different from saying they have infrastructure issues, which I doubt anyone disagrees with, probably not even most Oklahomans.

    I am aware about many problems in Brazil. Entire Central and South America has strong left-wing paramilitary groups, fractions. It is impossible to create normal democratic systems in such soil.

    Fan of Donald Trump burned himself in New York. Such cult exists in third world countries: the cult of personality, idolatry…

    The term infrastructure is just another wider aspect, umbrella of different problems. When you must visit some medical institution, you feel like in some bus station or in shelter, crowded people. A lot of minority groups in USA can’t visit better medical institutions, they can’t afford private educational system, better upper class quarter or city, better food, high end restaurants. Their lives are based around two jobs, horrible state schools, drug, alcohol addictions, nicknames like Big Momma, Porkchop, Mamacita, El Chico…sometimes they can end in some social club, get some better perspective, endorsement and direction. Otherwise, life really becomes bad.

    Not really. There are many nice places in East or West Coast. Even in states which share the border with Canada: Minnesota, Milwaukee, Illinois, Wisconsin…ordinary gas station in Oklahoma, New Mexico, Alabama, Kentucky, Detroit can offer shootings, stabbing…when you drive through San Diego, LA, hills around LA, Sacramento, San Francisco, Portland, Seattle, New York, things look much better.

    You know what’s sad? Many union members being pro Trump. They lost factories and jobs due to bad trade deals under Trump and still support the moron. If they vote for Trump and somehow Trump wins and factories start laying off people and shipping out jobs overseas then it’s totally deserved and will not get any sympathy by me. Trump has been pro big corporate and he doesn’t even hide it. I guess many of the union folks are just plain stupid.

    I don't think he has that much support among union members. When Biden was marching with striking union members last September, Trump was hosting a rally for autoworkers - in a non-union shop, with people holding "Union Workers for Trump" signs that when questioned said they didn't belong to a union.

    Not really. I avoid such silly political systems. I only know it’s horrible. Nicaragua, Venezuela, Bolivia, Cuba, N. Korea, Russia, China, Iran, Lebanon, Palestine, Pakistan, all ex-Soviet republics are complicated…many similar systems exist in African countries. Who could tell the difference?

    I meant on Detroit and collapsed car industry. For real, the state of Michigan isn’t bad overall. Lansing seems good. But this is less important compared to claim about the non-existing African states in 16th, 17th century.

    union heads are definitely pro Biden but the members appear to be pro Trump and it seems like nothing will change.

    also it’s a shame Kennedy is running. I have a feeling he will hurt Biden more than Trump.

    this is going to be a close election.

    On my way to the Detroit City FC game yesterday, I walked by a couple people asking if I'd like to sign a petition to get a socialist on the ballot in Michigan. Said nope, they proceeded to yell things like both Biden and Trump are criminals.

    Then leftists wonder why they don't win elections.

    So, no knowledge. Then why are you commenting on something better or worse? And how it is possible you have any idea why Biden and Trump are similar?

    How so? Explain how you know it's horrible is you "avoid such silly political systems."

    Of course they are. All governments and political systems are complicated.

    Interesting list of countries. Why did you leave Hungary or Albania out of your list?

    Somebody who has knowledge.
