In a quixotic quest to find reasons to cast doubt on our predictions of a Biden/Harris blowout in November, here’s one that may be flying under the radar, apropos the previous post–the Libertarian ticket. The party’s presidential candidate:

This evening I will attend the #BlackLivesMatter candlelight vigil at Stark Park in Manchester, New Hampshire. If you are in the area, join me in honoring lives lost to injustice.

There’s a reason (nearly?) all politicians who identify as libertarians (Ron Paul, Justin Amash, Gary Johnson, Bill Weld, etc) run as Republicans. The Woke don’t care if you’re with them on 50% or even 90% of things. If there is the slightest deviation from the dictated consensus on anything, you’re a racist sympathizer if not an outright nazi. They’ll throw JK Rowling under the bus. They’re never letting you set foot inside to begin with.
In 2016, the Libertarian Gary Johnson garnered nearly 5 million votes, 3.3% of those cast. Most of those votes would’ve gone to Trump if they hadn’t gone to Johnson. Jo Jorgensen isn’t going to get 5 million votes in November, not even close. It wouldn’t come as a surprise to us if she only received half that:
Trump lost New Hampshire, Minnesota, Nevada, Maine, Colorado, and New Mexico in 2016 by margins smaller than Johnson’s support in each of those states. The worse the Libertarian party does, the better Trump’s chances are.
++Addition++Neglected to include this one in the original post, which gets right at the heart of non-aggression and personal liberty–rah-rahing another person of cervix:
I'm glad that Joe Biden has brought another woman into the race; the vice presidency shouldn't be a boys' club. When I think about the millions of girls and young women across America, I think they deserve a voice this year when it comes to the top job in the country. #elections
