What candidate supports all those that has a viable chance of winning?

I've been donating and campaigning for ranked choice voting in Washington state since 2016. What are you doing?

[-] kinther 1 points 1 day ago

You seem more reasonable then a lot of the other mouth breathers on lemmy. What policy decisions do you look for in a presidential candidate besides being anti genocide? I have yet to hear anyone from that camp speak on any other positions they care about, and it's rather worrying.

NOAA is forecasting a range of 17 to 25 total named storms (winds of 39 mph or higher). Of those, 8 to 13 are forecast to become hurricanes (winds of 74 mph or higher), including 4 to 7 major hurricanes (category 3, 4 or 5; with winds of 111 mph or higher). Forecasters have a 70% confidence in these ranges.

Single issue voters are low information and suck to talk to. I've seen zero interest in any other topic from the anti Biden crowd.

Deflecting because you don't have anything you do IRL, got it. Another poser.

I think there are a lot of disenfranchised young people who are naive about how our voting system works, just like I was in 2016. I've said it elsewhere but I'm getting flashbacks because of all the "don't vote" and "vote 3rd party" BS I'm seeing, which heavily tilted the scales in the favor of the Republicans.

You basically just said you don't care about the future and are only concerned with the present if it relates to the ongoing genocide of Palestinians. You don't care about how your inaction will affect any other topic. You're like a fucking horse with blinders on.

Arguing with strangers on the internet isn't doing shit, mate. Tell us two things you do IRL besides that and maybe you won't look like a neckbeard keyboard warrior.

[-] kinther 1 points 3 days ago

You never can tell at this point. Some people are just low information, single issue voters. I dont doubt there are a lot of astroturfing trolls here though, especially since it's an election year.

2016 taught me that 3rd party and no voters tilt the scale in the favor of Republicans. I'm getting flashbacks with all the comments on Lemmy here saying as much.

I'd much prefer a ranked choice voting system where we had viable third parties. At the end of the day, one of two people will win the election. If you make one issue your entire focus, you lose sight of the big picture. I'll just say this - genocide is not a joke, it's fucked up, and I believe Israel is committing it in Gaza.

Putting that aside for now, do you care about anything else politically? Do you believe a woman should not be allowed to have an abortion, or do you support further tax cuts for the billionaires?

[-] kinther -3 points 4 days ago

You have a choice between two candidates who can win the election. There is no third party who can win. You speak as if there is one in a first past the post electoral system. There isn't. If you have a way forward that doesn't further slide us into fascism and also isn't supportive of genocide, please enlighten me.

Sadly our only option is to not for for Trump, and the only other viable candidate is Biden. I don't like it anymore then you do, but until we replace our electoral system with one that is more fair, it's what we have to work with.
