  • It's anyone's guess.

  • If 20 twenties, mostly virtual conventions will produce similar bumps, but the delegates air still committed people are excited.

  • Thio elect Joe Biden.

  • That's really the point of the convention.

  • I don't care if I have to walk around with a space suit on.

  • A disadvantage of remote learning is that it doesn't always play to teachers strengths.
