  1. The polls were wrong again, as many said they would be, but those people missed a crucial point: Biden’s lead was SO massive that even a larger-than-average polling error (and this error was pretty average - about the same as it was in 2012, when Obama did better than expected across Florida, Virginia, and Colorado) couldn’t undo it. The campaign couldn’t rely on the polls being wrong, and they did anyway. So why are they surprised they lost?

  2. When your campaign has lost two states that haven’t backed your opponent’s party in three decades, while only narrowly holding on to a third, I think that’s the time to take a step back and look at what went wrong. “Most things” is the answer. Trump visited Georgia only one time during the entire election cycle. Once. After having won in 2016 because his opponent made the exact same mistake, you’d think he’d avoid that outcome.

    • Really there’s a lot that went wrong here that I’m astounded nobody in his campaign foresaw as becoming an issue. Like, maybe don’t use your son as a surrogate when attacking your opponent for alleged nepotism.

          • In retrospect, maybe Donald Trump shouldn’t have run his campaign against Hillary Clinton and Hunter Biden this year when neither were on the ballot... that might have been a factor...

Any home console games where you could manipulate things on-screen usually ended up getting pushed to their very limits by me. Special mention goes to Fallout 4 where my game was perpetually running at sub-20 any time I was in one of my settlements.

They knew voters would be biased against me so they decided to have an election now, when I was at my least popular. Despite that, we won the great state of Oklahoma, many, many people showed up to vote even on Election Day, and they handed me perhaps the largest win Oklahoma has ever seen.
