Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
The polls were wrong, and as always, in a new way. Highest turnout in history: millions of people who usually don't bother, turned up on the day. They are, by definition, not on the pollsters' radar. And they are low information voters, and Don seems a fun guy.

first one must take into account that 25% of amurka are dangerous fundamentalist xtians, who know the world is 8,438 years old, because it says so in the bibble. they also support fascism in Israel, because it brings us closer to the rapture. they can turn the other cheek when trump lets the saudi ruler commit dismemberment.

then one must take into account the rebirth of Goebbels, with more money, tools and power than even he ever imagined. the propaganda free market enterprise in toto, not just Rupertvision, is already professional beyond his wildest dreams. the trumpers don't even know what a horror they are supporting, they're wild calling him Superman for overcoming Covid (did he?), but they don't know why he's so stuck on fucking Iran, and let Turkey purge US allies.

Also, the Scopes Trial never left. Balding, fat, impotent men still decide the law must state that creationism MUST be taught alongside the "theory" of Darwinism in the schools... there's good people on both sides of climate chaos.
