My guess is people take the thread title to mean in a primary.
Why would they assume that?
If they assumed that then they assumed wrong.
Only on DDF does 24/6 mean 24/5/half/half

Luckily I live in a place where my vote doesn't count in the general election, and I am registered D, so none of this makes any practical difference to me. If I were to live in FL or PA I might have given this consideration, but as of now this is of less relevance to me than last year's snowfall.

What does supportting a politician mean to you?

For many I assume it means voting for that politician in the next election.

So the next election would not be 2024? You are getting into pretzel territory again.

If you are going to count primaries as elections that would mean the question pertains to the first primary state only?

That would put @Dan's old "pick your poison" to shame. A loose canon vs a senile puppet, both to a greater magnitude than the previous run, both of whom would never be on the ballot under normal circumstances even one time.

Except one wants to abolish part of the constitution to put him in power. Anyone that votes for someone who won't uphold the constitution should move to another country.

The facts won't change.

Most here will support him no matter what. They will come up with pretzel reasons but in the end, they will support the man that demands their loyalty.

You are absolutely right. Also, at night when we all sleep, the fridge and microwave dance around the house singing Mary Had a Little Lamb.

I'm sorry. I never gave much weight to his words. He was a one time phenomenon, against all odds, an act of G-d (probably meant to humiliate arrogant politicians). Thank G-d his SCOTUS nominations seem solid, job done.

And anyone who would vote for someone that wouldn't uphold the constitution (I guess there's no pre-election oath) shouldn't be walking free. There are jails and mental institutions.

You can joke about it but sometimes that is what is needed because the truth stings.

...and many died or were injured because of his words but you can pretend it never happened.

Would Jan 6 insurrection ever had happened without his words?

I have never seen anyone hide their feelings on this forum, though it would be impossible for me to know for sure. The same way it would be impossible for you to know.

When you state something emphatically that is impossible to know, it is not something that I will spend time and effort countering.

This is getting too emotional. Politics is sports for non intellectuals around here. Almost none of our votes actually make a difference in the presidential elections. It's just an interesting discussion topic.

They did when he was in office.

Would the country not have been better off if Biden would have announced a sweeping pardon on January 21st (or maybe even on the 20th)? Certain wounds need to heal.
