    The overwhelming majority of American voters are somewhere just left or just right of center.

    The only reasons Trump won the first time were Clinton's arrogance about Democrat votes in the mid-west and the fact that tons of people really can't stand her. If she had actually campaigned in Wisconsin and Michigan, she might have overcome the "anybody but her" vote. She didn't.

    A Sanders campaign might have actually scared enough Trump haters to vote for him anyway, just to make sure Sanders didn't get in.

    I know I get reductionist but this is a little much.

    Those of us who live outside the USA have just heaved a collective sigh of relief! Sure, Biden and Harris may have their own internal issues, but we don't see those. I for one am INCREDIBLY happy that there will not be a further 4 years of a narcissistic, fascist, racist, incompetent and unintelligent leader who is quite capable of starting worldwide chaos just because he can or because it would benefit him personally, being in control of the nuclear codes!

    The world had a collective sigh relief? Not at all, "Error's elected Government" needed Trump to win, after all, that was the only (Hard) Brexit Plan they ever had. It is not a coincidence that the British Foreign Minister Dominic Raab congratulated Trump on his Victory last Wednesday, 10 hours after Trump declared so.
    People tend to forget that we in Europe have to put up with the "mini-version" of Trump - Boris Johnson.

    Besides that Rhodris is right, there is collective relief in the EU and elsewhere in the world.

    UK is ****ed either way since Brexit. I have more hope with Biden than I do with Trump honestly.

    Trump was never going to give a good deal to the UK, despite what he may have falsely promised.

    According to the OF the, "SOCIALISTS WON THE ELECTION THROUGH THE MAILBOX!!1!1"

    I'm almost positive that poster also mentioned they were on a fixed income, maybe disability, in earlier posts.

    Wish there'd been a socialist on the ballot. I'd have voted for him 3 times.

    Well, the problem for the right wing faschists is that they call everyone Socialists and Lefties. Not realizing you have Social Democrats, Green Party Member, Socialists, and the far left - Ultra Communists /Marxists - on the left.

    Given how far right they are, there are also moderate conservatives 'on the left' :p
