This premise has a fatal flaw; it presupposes that voters like me believe Biden is “better” than Trump. However, I do not. To me, they are equal in their moral repulsiveness, and their policies and ideologies have more similarities than differences. So, this means that when I vote for Gloria La Riva (PSL) in the event that Biden gets the Democratic nomination, there’s no logical way it’s “one less vote for the Democrats” — I wasn’t going to vote for Biden in the first place.

Hope this makes sense. I feel like I’m going to have to explain this to people a lot if Biden gets the nomination. I’ll probably write an actual article about it in that case. I think I attempted to explain it in a different response to one of these comments already…
