https://www.foxbusiness.com/markets/trump-says-biden-would-destroy-the-suburbs-so-what-is-his-housing-plan

When an article strains to be critical of Biden, and somehow ends up as a glowing endorsement of his proposed policy. Biden's initiatives are stated in a Fox News article, without any attempt on their part to dispute the point, to reduce overall poverty by 22% and child poverty by 34%, all by (gasp!) forcing the suburbs to be more inclusive. I know, right? Pure evil!

I mean the subtext is that all of a sudden more people from urban areas (ie people of color, and obviously largely criminals) are going to move into the burbs and that's why what Biden is doing is "destroying the suburbs". I guess to the racists that make up a significant portion of Fox's viewership such consequences are terrifying.

It's just crazy that in attacking a liberal over a liberal policy, in the name of defending Trump's inane accusations, a conservative outfit can't spin things so that it really sounds like a bad idea. Unless, of course, you take issue with more people being able to make their way out of poverty, and conceivably move into your development. There goes the neighborhood, huh?

Its hard to spin it without either trashing the suburbs (So fox viewers) or outright calling city folk criminals.
Plus, I think Fox see's the writing on the wall and isn't giving it their A game right now.

Joe Biden is still winning by a landslide, by the way. Even more so than before.

I mean, of course he does. And why wouldn't he?

Trump has been notorious for agreeing to nothing but softball interviews with personal friends like Sean Hannity throughout his presidency. This interview was not a sign that that attitude has changed; it's just a sign that the Trump campaign recognizes how far underwater he is, and it forced Trump to step outside his comfort zone. It was an act of desperation more than anything else.

Biden has no such problem. Biden has been doing just fine without having to subject himself to a difficult interview on a hostile network.

I'd decline the interview if I were him too. It was a publicity stunt for Trump. Biden doesn't need a publicity stunt right now, he needs to keep doing what he's been doing, because it's working.

And Fox News putting out an article challenging him for refusing the interview might feel good on their part, but it will have very, very little effect on the election, because the zombies that pay attention to Fox News have made their choice already.

Keep doing what you're doing, Joe!

I don't want to get my hopes up too much, but I have to admit I'm feeling a lot more optimistic about the election than I was a few months ago. Trump is his own worst enemy, and he's doing far more to hurt his chances of reelection than Biden ever could. I'd like to see Biden also decline to debate Trump. He'll take a hit for backing out, sure, but there's no benefit in a debate for him. If he gets onto a stage with Trump, Trump will simply lie. He'll lie wildly and frantically, desperate to say something, anything that could narrow the gap between them. Why give him the opportunity? There's no point in having a debate if both candidates aren't making a good-faith effort to actually discuss the issues and let the voters decide which of them has the better stance on them.

I think we're all mature enough to handle a discussion on the election while also agreeing to vote no matter what we think the outcome will be.

What if the pandemic makes it impossible to hold elections in November? Is that possibility even considered?

Yes.
People will vote anyway tho older people (who generally vote Republican) probably won't.

Trump will declare it a sham election if he loses and can blame corona, to which everyone will go 'But you said mail in voting was full of fraud.'

I suspect you'll have alot of mail in voting tho.

I'm sure if Trump loses, there will be people on the left saying the same thing. It's a no-win situation.

I hope everyone can and does vote.
