People complaining that YouTube is trying to censor Trump and his supporters, yet they're pushing ads for his upcoming live campaign rally (even though the dislikes far outweight the likes).

I have noticed, however, that the 2020 elections are shaping up to be the exact opposite of 2016, in that while 2016 had umpteen different Republican candidates campaigning to be the RNC nominee and there were only two Democratic candidates, the 2020 election on the other hand has only one Republican candidate (Trump running for re-election), but the Democrats have umpteen different candidates running - many of whom are virtually unknown . . . but then again, so was Obama when he ran the first time in 2008.

Oh, and a father and daughter end up drowning in a river while trying to enter the U.S. seeking asylum:

Democrats: This is all Trump's fault! He doesn't care about anybody!
Republicans: This is all their own fault! They have no business trying to get into our country illegally!
Me: So we're gonna keep politicizing a tragedy for the sake of pushing party agendas, eh?

Whoever the Democrat candidate turns out to be, they would be smart not to make the same mistake Hillary did.
Hillary did not campaign in Wisconsin, Michigan, or Pennsylvania.
She was so convinced those states always voted Democrat. Done deal.
That's where she lost it. Trump campaigned there, she didn't.
In 2020, whoever competes against Trump, neither side can afford to lose any of those states.
Her basket of deplorable comment didn't help, but not campaigning in those states was the nail in her coffin.

The south has a similar problem: most Democratic politicians won't come down here because they know the south is mostly conservative, but also because they figure much of the south is rural and full of simple-minded older folks who can't be persuaded by what they don't understand . . . and this is kind of where Trump won them over: he was able to speak in simple terms they could understand and convince them to buy into his malarkey.

Either way, a lot of Dems figure the south is a lost cause.

A lot of Dems feel if they get New York and California,, they have it made. Both states are overwhelmingly Democrat, and put together have 50 million people, but that's still not enough to win the election.

After how Hillary let it all slip I doubt they'll follow in her line of thinking.
The way they dems are talking about giving illegal immigrants free healthcare and decriminalizing the border is definitely not going to win people over in Michigan or Ohio. The Democrats have gone way too far left, this will lead to President Trump winning reelection.
