Help convincing a Biden supporter

My wife and I are mailing our absentee ballots tomorrow, she hasn't been as up to date as me with Biden's disappearance act, Tara Reade's allegation, and Bernie's big win passing the COVID 19 amended bill for the unemployed while fundraising for supporting those in need.

She was initially for Warren, and her main argument is that Bernie is too kooky to win against Trump. And so she's currently leaning towards Biden.

What are some of the best topics I can present while not pressing too hard as she's still making her mind for herself?

Hi folks I have been an on the fence Trump supporter for a while now but after listening to Bernie for some time now I really believe he is the most honest candidate that has ran for president in many years. I believe he will work to support the middle class (which is me) and spread the enormous amount of wealth around the the 1% are hoarding like the dragon Smaug. I hope this is the right choice. Go Bernie!

As a current Trump Supporter, I really like Bernie. He is very genuine and I believe he wants to do good in the world but could you guys help me understand where all the money is going to come from?

I like Bernie but I found a comment in an AskAnAmerican thread that got me wondering how he is going to pay for everything…

"It's hard for a lot of people to see how the government could afford to pay for single-payer healthcare, and $ 1.6 Trillion in student loan debt forgiveness (his numbers), and $ 2.5 Trillion to build new federal housing (his numbers), and $ 70 Billion to renovate current federal housing (his numbers), and $ 200 Billion to the Green Climate Fund (his numbers), and $ 16.3 Trillion to basically recreate the CCC (his numbers), and $ 62 Billion in new VA infrastructure (his numbers), and $ 81 Billion in medical debt forgiveness (his numbers), for a total of $ 20.81 Trillion at least. His proposed billionaire's tax would bring in $ 4.35 Trillion over 15 years (his numbers), that still leaves us with over $ 16.4 Trillion (not including the cost of healthcare) needed.

All of the reasons listed would help people, there's no question, but how is it paid for? And before anyone brings up the military budget: 1. Bernie's website says nothing about cutting military spending. 2. One over-inflated budget doesn't give you carte blanche to ignore costs.

Some other issues like a bank in every post office just don't seem very logistically viable."

How can he fulfill these promises?

Here’s Why I’m a Supporter of More Pro-Worker Policies and Less Hours of Work

I've put a lot of thought into why I would like more policies that support better wages and working conditions for people. I'm a fan of a few of the Democratic candidates, such as Bernie Sanders, because I think we need a lot of change in how our economy works.

Where I live, the majority of job listings online state the pay to be around $ 14 – $ 18, and the job postings often want people to do the work of 2 people. Many businesses are under a lot of stress and volatility. Earning $ 14 – $ 18 dollars an hour in the city means you're barely making it. We need a lot of change to happen.

Besides those opportunities, a certain portion of people are earning near 6 figures or above with graduate degrees. Not everyone can afford to go back to school and get a graduate degree, or a different degree that fits the current economic demands.

If one is lucky, one makes $ 50,000 to $ 60,000 a year in the city where I live, with a decent number of years of experience or with certain qualifications. Maybe $ 70,000 a year. That's not enough to save long-term for retirement.

We need a LOT of change to happen economically for people to be able to pay the bills, create some savings, and to have a better economy and society.

With so many tech advances that have taken jobs away or changed how people do business, why are people doing MORE work (like the jobs of two people), for pay that barely lets people get by?

It seems like the economy and job market is really messed up. We need the government or other organizations to intervene and allow people to do higher-quality work, for less hours, and with better pay. That way people can have better lives and be more able to reach their potential.

Thank you all for your work to help a Democratic candidate get elected.

I used to be a passenger on the Train train, but now I've decided to go to the station in Burlington and hop on the Sanders train. Just want to let you guys know that I'm not alone; there are quite a few Trump guys (even if not online) who'd be willing to or are already supporting Sanders. But, fyi, I don't support all the Dem nominees, so you guys at the Democratic party ought to nominate the Senator from Vermont!!!
