    I love how both sides say "well my old person is better than your old person" LOL. Both are unfit to be President. If everyone could just be honest for once and admit it. Both Biden and Trump are unfit to be president. Anyone arguing otherwise is either far left or right or is also senile lol. We as a country have nominated terrible candidates the last 3 election cycles. Been since 2012 that we've had "normal people" running for office.

    I think a lack of cognitive ability is a significant issue that may shape the outcome of this election. But I think the primary cognitive deficit at issue is not of the candidates but among Trump supporters, who are so easily susceptible to manipulation.

    Interesting that he reports at the very end of the OP video that one CEO told him “this may not be any different or better than a Biden thought, if you’re thinking that way.”

    So the CEOs think both candidates are terrible!

    Trump really "missed the boat" on that one. Everybody knows you use the boat battery to electrocute the shark. And you righties want to give that idiot the nuclear codes...again? Sheesh.

    How did the singular get changed to the plural?

    You are correct, he said “as one of them said.” In the beginning, he said he spoke to “a number” of them, which implies it wasn’t all of them who thought Trump was meandering.

    Don’t you think it’s pathetic that people are arguing over which candidate is more senile?

    I would be concerned about any CEO who doesn't think Trump is "meandering." His mental issues have gone was past age.

    It's best that low information voters don't vote, so thanks for not voting.

    What exactly is a low information voter? Do they exist in both parties?

    Sure they do but right now about 30 percent of those supporting trump are doing it out of habit or because they can’t make competent decisions.

    Sure. But I'd say if you think Trump and Biden are equally bad, you're a low info voter. Either you're not seeing the valid information, or you're seeing bad information and believing it.

    Ross Perot got 19% of the vote in 1992, then 8.5% in 1996. Ralph Nader got 3% in 2000 and 1% in 2004. No significant 3rd party challengers until 2020 when Gary Johnson got about 4%.

    If we were unable to keep the momentum after 1992 then it's clear that a 3rd party is not going to become relevant. There's a chance here and there that a specific candidate may get momentum and grab a small share of the vote, but abstaining or voting 3rd is not sending any sort of message to the main parties.

    It's a binary choice and you can either choose to accept that or you can keep your head in the sand and pretend that your better than everyone else because you weren't part of the problem in your own eyes.

    I dont know man. Here is the difference. Both of them have their political enemies saying they are unfit. No shock there. Only one of them has former insiders and trusted employees saying he is unfit. That is an enormous difference in my opinion.

    LOL. I'm not going to just vote for someone because there are only 2 choices. The 2 choices are shit and dog shit. You are choosing to eat one of them. I choose neither. I will vote for the other races in Florida but will not be casting an R or D vote for President for the 3rd straight election cycle. I hold out hope our country will actually nominate some candidates on both sides that aren't worthless. Obama was a solid President and McCain was a very good person. I voted McCain but I think Obama was a good person. As was W. Trump, Hillary and Biden are not good people. Trump is an awful human being and I was happy to not have given him my vote. You do you. I'm not better than everyone else. I just don't lie to myself and say Biden is fit to be President. You want to lie to yourself, then knock yourself out.

    I think both men are past their prime. However, even putting aside their legal and moral differences, I have never expected Biden to be a savior or believed he has some unique and exclusive power to solve all our problems. I think he's done okay as a guy who understands Washington and cares about policies. I also expect that Biden will welcome input from reasonably competent people rather than searching for "yes men" within a list of grifters, conspiracy theorists, and criminals.
