It was really about DEMOCRACY vs. TRUMP. Fortunately, we had enough people in the battleground states choose DEMOCRACY. Why a NATIONAL race is determined by battleground states is a different issue/problem.
I don't think that anyone except Democratic Party loyalists were all that excited about Biden. I do think that people could look at Biden vs. Trump as (1) Competence vs. Incompetence, (2) Rational vs. Irrational, (3) Stability vs. Instability.
The fact that this election was even close shows just how fragile democracy can be.
Tipping Points: (1) It was Democrats voting Trump (not Clinton) that put Trump in office in 2016. (2) It was Republicans voting Biden (not Trump) that put Biden in office in 2020.
Silently, the Republican party is celebrating this. Not that they feared Trump himself, but they feared the wrath of his cult-like followers (voters) that could be incited by his twitter attacks against them if they spoke the truth.
The thing we should all be proud of is the participation level in this election. Trump got more votes than any previous presidential candidate in U.S. history. It was only eclipsed by Biden in 2020.
Yes, I voted Biden. But, it was not so much about Biden as it was about supporting Democracy. Maybe some support Trumpism (blindly supporting a leader) over democracy. I'm not one of those people. I prefer Democracy.
