As with Trump, the president of the United States is not the personal president of each individual or entity within the United States.January 21, 2021 1:08 pm at 1:08 pm #1941184
What you are saying is obvious tnat a president tries to satisfy the majority of the group and cannot safisfy each individual whim.January 21, 2021 1:08 pm at 1:08 pm #1941183
By being president of a group, he becomes president of each individual within that group.January 21, 2021 1:41 pm at 1:41 pm #1941192GadolhadorahParticipant

There might be a fundamental reason why we are having more and more of “not my” presidents – federal overreach. We now have feds deciding where to dig for oil, protect birds, minimal wage, etc. I am omitting mandating masks and injecting vaccines, as this has some emergency justification.
So, if the feds decide all these issues, then, naturally, about 50% of the people will not be happy. If we were to return decision powers to states, then you can decide to follow your favorite policies by simply moving from New Jersey to Alabama or other way around. The stakes of presidential elections will diminish to several manageable issues and nobody will be forced to live according to rules they do not agree with.January 24, 2021 7:47 pm at 7:47 pm #1941988dovrosenbaumParticipant
I hope in 2022, Republicans get the House and vote to impeach. Even better if we get the Senate.January 24, 2021 11:42 pm at 11:42 pm #1942062
Impeach <i>all</i> the presidents.January 24, 2021 11:42 pm at 11:42 pm #1942102HealthParticipant
Yidd23 -“Joe Biden is not my president”
He’s not anybody’s president.
According to him – he’s the Senator of “what’s its name” State!January 25, 2021 9:28 am at 9:28 am #1942205WolfishMusingsParticipant
And he is president of Apple Bank?
No, because he’s not “The President.” He’s the “President of the United States.” And if Apple Bank, or Apple or you happen to be in the United States, then he is the President of the United States in which Apple Bank, Apple and you are located.

He’s not anyone’s president. Trump won the election. It is mathematically impossible to win 18 out 19 counties that have voted for the winner in every election since 1980, as trump did, and lose the election.January 27, 2021 3:51 pm at 3:51 pm #1943085MenoParticipant
Mathematically impossible?January 27, 2021 5:14 pm at 5:14 pm #1943125Always_Ask_QuestionsParticipant
>> Mathematically impossible?
what 3×3 meant to say – “statistically impossible”
the reason for this misconception – you can come up with 1000s of different patterns which counties are important – since 1980, or maybe since 1890, or 1089 – and then focus on the pattern where current election is “statistically impossible”
a better way is to fix prediction rules before the election and then check them after.
another way is to construct multiple predictions and then use machine learning and cluster analysis to see if this one is different from others
