I think crucially it has the potential to show moderate voters that President Biden is not one to abuse the legal system for his own personal gain. If the outcome is supported by evidence and precedent, obviously some won’t be convinced by even that. But some will be.

The thing that made me realize Biden is a genuinely good person was that voicemail that Fox News leaked, ironically to try and harm Biden. It wasn't intended for the cameras. It was just an honest view into who he is, a really great father.

The precedent is that those crimes are rarely charged ^[1]^ so if anyone has the right to claim there is a witch hunt against them, it's Biden, not Trump. But of course this trial gets the same attention as all the Trump trials to make it seem like both candidates are the same.

You gotta be mentally defective to even consider voting R. Logic simply does not apply to those degenerates.

Or a product of the current news setting. You're basically saying that all R voters are complete idiots when they make up a large portion of the country (not the majority of course). This line of statements encourages R voters to entrench themselves, while not looking great to those on the fence.

I have friends who I respect that I'd classify as either R or on the fence. Where they get their news (Youtube, TikTok, Fox) is very attractive to their views but also incorrect at times. These sources are, for all intensive purposes, their eyes and ears of the political world. How can they not trust their eyes and ears?

Some people start to come around because lies start to break apart after a while. Some that are mad that the Covid hoax, which isn't real, but is also going away in spring of 2020, and can't really hurt people, still killed their family members. They see glimpses of Trump being an idiot, and dangerous and start to question what they're being told and weather Biden is such a bad option in comparison. Making it easier for people to change their minds, and not insulting them and their friends, makes it easier to get people to vote blue or not vote red.
