Trump got 7 MILLION more votes than 4 years ago

This is what I do not understand. Where are these people coming from? if they like his policy and ideas so much, why they didn't vote for him in 2016?

When I saw so high turnout, I was hoping most of these new voters would be for Biden who could not longer take Trump's crap. I was wrong.

Yes.

Best description of 2020:

Yes, there WAS a Blue Wave.

However, there was ALSO a (slightly smaller) Red Wave.

Most new voters ARE for Biden, who has already amassed more votes than any previous candidate.

That’s not “a mandate” for Biden any more than it’s a reflection of increased support for Trump. It’s instead the reality that this election is so contentious because of Trump that it’s brought out people from all over, both sides.

WHAT I AM HOPING:

That these voters will not show up in 2022 since there is no Trump on the ballot.

WHY I THINK IT'S POSSIBLE:

Democrats took the house in 2018, when there was no Trump on the ballot.

...And lost the popular vote by an additional million or so.

true. Still, the fact that 7 million MORE people voted for this criminal is mind blowing

Out of 224 million or so (2016) registered voters, it's about 3%, so it's definitely got eyeball significance.

Whoever says Trump is NOT racist is either joking themselves, lying, or simply a moron.

I am WHITE and I can see the racism in his speech, and in those who support him. I am also an immigrant and I felt the hate agains immigrants ('people with accent like you").

I simply do not understand how anyone could vote for TRUMP.

It's the highest turnout as a percentage of registered voters since 1900. 120 fricken years! Biden has already received the most votes in history beating out Obama's numbers.

And expect it to continue to climb, large blue states like CA and NY are still counting votes.

It’s the increase in Christian evangelical fundamentalists. They are increasing more than any other religious group.



Saint Cloud, Minnesota, where the weather is wonderful even when it isn't.

We beat 'em. I think the pandemic greatly aided turnout.
