Contributing sentiments towards policy:

36% : It's an abject lie contradicted by an ocean of empirical research showing that the nation's unelected dictatorship of concentrated wealth gets most of what it wants from government over and against technically irrelevant majority progressive public opinion (7 in 10 Americans currently want Single Payer national health insurance)
14% : So, hey, Obama, with 212,000-plus dead from the Trump Virus, with the COVID-45 death count heading to half a million by next January, with tens of millions without jobs or health care, with a second stimulus still blocked by the right-wing Senate and president, with a far right Handmaid jurist about to round out a 6-3 hard right Supreme Court, with mass evictions on the horizon, with no new financial supports coming for people out of work, with even lame-ass corporate Obamacare on the chopping block, and with a rolling coup being waged by the Trump administration on the nation's highly flawed "electoral democracy"
25% : obsessive neo-McCarthyite fear mongering about "the radical Left;" constant absurd conflation of corporate centrist Democrats with "the radical Left;" the relentless purge of administration officials deemed disloyal; the absurd paranoid-style claim that Marxists and anarchists are "indoctrinating our children;" the preposterous depiction of center-right Joe Biden as "a Trojan Horse for socialism;" the savage shredding of environmental regulations; the tearing up of nuclear weapons agreements; the forced sterilizations of immigrant women in Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) facilities; the savage racist indifference to the plight of Puerto Rico during and after Hurricane Maria; the reference to Haiti and African nations as "shithole countries;" the open violation of international asylum law; nativist and racist assaults on progressive Congresswoman (including telling them to "go back to the crime-infested country you came from"); the sinister and telling combination of lawlessness with the rhetoric of "law and order;" the constant and relentless propaganda war on truth, facts, and science; the open adoption of fascist esthetic and symbols; the embrace of the Confederacy; the sickening attack on the teaching of the history of American slavery and genocide; the paramilitary deployments in Portland, Kenosha, and elsewhere; the "white power" tweet; the recurrent fascist-stye hate-rallies (suspended briefly only because the monster finally got bit in the lungs by his own pandemic); the defense of the teen-fascist and murderer Kyle Rittenhouse; the police state execution of Michael Reinoehl; the "Stand By" shout-out to the Proud Boys; the appointment of a Christian fascist cult member to the U.S. Supreme Court; the presidentially sparked ("Free Michigan!")
5% : We have seen the purposefully sadistic child separations at the border; the immigrant concentration camps; Charlottesville; the insane partially and badly constructed border Wall; the pardoning of demented racist war criminals; the Trump-triggered El Paso slaughter; the Trump-triggered Tree of Life massacre; Trump's insane murder of Iran's top military commander; calls for "civil war" if Democrats try to remove him from office; repeated threats to annihilate North Korea and Iran with nuclear weapons; repeated call-outs to white supremacists and fascists; open embrace of political terrorism; bizarre claims that the Constitution "lets me do whatever I want;" "jokes" about being "president for life;" the Trump-approved Khashoggi vivisection; the insane arch-authoritarian Dershowitz defense; the ongoing far-right makeover of the federal courts; Lafayette Square; the absurd description of Black Lives Matter (BLM) as a "hate" slogan; the insane description of BLM protesters as "terrorists;"
97% : [that it] is essential to a vibrant and functioning democracy...
96% : Trump's all-encompassing vision...."
94% : First, Americans must break once for all from the Obamanistic "election madness" - from the infantilizing notion that "voting is the most important action we can take on behalf of democracy.
93% : Let the Joe Time Roll?
93% : Let the...Joe Time Roll.
15% : Putin's ability to bring the press to heel, the media's throat under his jackboot, was also an attraction to Trump, not a bad thing.
14% : Depending on authoritarian outfits like Indivisible and MoveOn to "save democracy" (or what's left of it) is like depending on Joe Biden to provide offensive line pass protection against the fearsome Chicago Bears defensive lineman Kahlil Mack.
13% : It is a multiple-choice test so narrow, so specious, that no self-respecting teacher would give it to students...
3% : The People Need to Enter the Stage of History: Getting Beyond 45 Means Going Beyond 44
2% : I've never found near-term history less predictable.
