People all across the nation have begun waking up to the toxic idea of Donald Trump. We are used to taking much for granted. Then, the coronavirus pandemic came to town and stole away our loved ones and even our freedom to mingle in person in any way. People realize that this president threatens the democracy now, and even strongly Republican newspapers have turned like a stone person, slowly but deliberately away from him.
The New Hampshire Union Leader, a conservative-leaning Manchester-based newspaper, endorsed Joe Biden for president on Sunday right before he came to town:
‘While Joe Biden is the clear choice for president, it would be a disservice to the country to send him to the White House without a backstop. We suggest splitting the ballot and electing a healthy dose of GOP senators and representatives. The best governance often comes through compromise. The civility of the Biden administration will help foster such compromise, but a blue wave would be nearly as disastrous for this country as four more years of Trump. It would result in a quagmire of big government programs that will take decades to overcome.’
Axios reported this was a 100-year change in policy:
‘It’s the first time the paper has endorsed a Democrat for president in over 100 years, after it broke from more than a century of backing Republicans to endorse libertarian Gary Johnson over President Trump in 2016.’
The newspaper entitled its editorial “Our Choice is Joe Biden.” What made them do it? Well, the Union Leader wrote:
