I, for one, am disheartened that essentially half of our country still voted for Trump.

i get where this is coming from. but i also kinda think the slower trickle of vote counting is contributing to how close the race feels.

when it's all said and done, if Biden wins NV, GA, PA, and AZ his electoral margin will be pretty similar to Trump's in 2016....and he'll have done so by flipping at least 5 states and winning the popular vote by a higher margin than Clinton in 2016. the congressional results are disappointing if you were hoping for a blue wave. and overall, yes, it's disappointing that it took a global pandemic to beat Trump. and i do agree that i was hoping this election, especially with really high turnout, would be a much more decisive and clear repudiation of trump. but hoping for a total landslide was probably an unrealistic hope all along.

i agree with your sentiment, but i also think the prolonged counting of votes and delay in knowing a winner makes it feel closer than it will ultimately be (yes, even with some of those flipped states having close margins).

i also think it's worth keeping in mind that polling shows most americans believe they are better off now than they were 4 years ago...and the incumbent is still going to lose. that's significant, imo.

It's an amazing coincidence how these three banners or conviction continually show up in the same area. Almost as if the beliefs are deeply aligned.

I wouldn't be asking the question if I didn't care to learn. The notion is that if I'm not as smart, and not instantly picking things up, then I don't deserve to learn.

I know this is a message board from a research university but there are plenty of teachers and even professors who do care about student learning. There are student-centered universities but its something much more common in high-end, private, high schools.

Its the teachers job to teach the student and meet them where they are not just roll out the same content every year then throw their hands up.

The fact that you ask questions appears to be a facade. After all, you never actually pay attention to the answers you are given.

^^can you elaborate on that?

I see on right-wing media and right-wingers/conservatives on social meeting screaming about how our democracy is in peril, and the constitution is being trampled on, and it's time to take our country back. But besides the vaccine "mandates" and mask-wearing, I don't really know what they're talking about (and I don't see how they didn't think our democracy was(is) in peril because of Trump and his GOP cronies, who really seem like they'd be happy with theocratic autocracy)

I lean generally right, but the current GOP is an enemy of and threat to the American experiment.

I know that President Trump was booed on at least one occasion, but were there many "Fuck Donald Trump" chants when he was president?

I've heard "Fuck Joe Biden" chants at two sporting events so far this year.

The name of the platform is comical, and if he expects it to legitimately compete with mainstream social media, that's also comical.

At best it will be another hate-filled cult-like echo chamber that will be plagued with technical issues and will also fail.

^You may already be too late:

https://www.dailydot.com/debug/trump-truth-media-platform-shuts-down-trolling/

Quote :
"Last night, former President Donald Trump announced the launch of Truth Social, his new social media platform. Trump’s been threatening to launch his own platform for months. Earlier this year, he launched and quickly abandoned a personal blog.

Within hours of the news breaking, Truth Social was broken.

A beta version was supposed to become available in November, and the site was supposed to launch in 2022, CNBC reports.

Someone quickly discovered a link to sign up, however. Aubrey Cottle of Anonymous fame tweeted the link and invited everyone to “come join the party.”

People flocked to it, claiming handles associated with Trump and other high-profile people, such as Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey and former Vice President Mike Pence.

A Daily Dot staffer claimed the handle @donaldtrump. Others grabbed @donaldjtrump, @realdonaldjtrump, @mikepence, Ron Watkins’ old Twitter handle, and more.

A troll party ensued.

....................

Amid massive trolling, Truth Social went down. It suspended new accounts and disabled all the accounts that had been created. "
