Poll

When I consider the polls, I think that

Kid is right and the majority of national polls understate Trump's strength.
- 2 (25%)
Kid is wrong; the majority of national polls have Biden's strength about right.
- 2 (25%)
the polls are irrelevant and therefore so is Kid.
- 4 (50%)

I think of them as distant jets passing 40,000 feet over.

Matt Damon and Daniel Craig will fix everything.

 This is where capitalism goes when you don't supervise it.  A system of concentrating capital is one that eventually makes humans subordinate to capital.   You have to eat the rich, periodically.

No leadership from the House GOP, just silent followers.

Daniel Radcliffe is no Hollywood star

You are hardly a human being, but thank you for sharing your worthless opinion.

Kid may have meant it as a compliment.  Radcliffe is having a successful career as a West End and Broadway actor.  He's in a Samuel Beckett double feature at the Old Vic this winter, with Alan Cumming.  With the pound in its current weakened condition, I'm tempted to go over there and take in some shows.

Help me to understand this.  You're working over the stoves in your kitchen, you hear a commotion outside, and....you think what I really need to handle the situation is that narwhal tusk mounted on the wall over there.... just saying, that fellow showed uncommon resourcefulness and presence of mind.   

And hardline Brexiteers want to keep EU immigrants like Lucasz OUT??

In the Bridge attack 2 years ago, it was a Romanian with bread crates who helped subdue the terrorists.   These guys are the best argument for Remain the UK has.

I think it is most people's. Sadly, fiction is your favorite form of political discourse, and your favorite form of."fact". Or at least, your favorite form of fact like substance.

Yes. Hardline Brexiteers are just like Rabid Republicans. Immigrants give them a acute feeling of insurmountable inferiority. Hard work, optimism, and a love of the adoptive country that all outstrip and outshine these crackers engenders self-hatred that these miserable shrunken people inevitably project on the immigrants who overshadow them and are the future of both England and the United States.
