It would be a massive understatement to say that 2020 has been a very difficult year for most people. Some might say that is has been the most challenging in their lifetime, even individuals who have been on the planet for several decades.But even with all the struggle and anxiety, there have actually been some good things to come out of this year. No, you did not read that wrong. As the old statement suggests, "every cloud has a silver lining." This one is no different, it's just a matter of finding it.
It isn’t often that you come across a musical artist that appeals to a wide range of humanity. Sure, “pop” artists are theoretically exactly that but in reality they frequently have limited fan bases that are often not very diverse. It’s even less often that an artist that fits this criteria is a person who rarely sings.
One the the oldest and dearest traditions of the holiday season can sometimes be one of the most challenging to deal with in our modern world. That would be the notion of Santa Claus.
I had my laptop for a few years and it was used when I got it. That unit was (and still is in fact) running Windows 7. It is a big, bulky laptop and the battery doesn't last 10 minutes without the charging cord plugging in. In short, it is past it's prime and while I didn't plan on tossing it out all together , I was looking for something faster and more practical at a very low price. Combine that with the fact that I finally wanted something brand new but couldn't stand the idea or using something running Windows 10, I undertook the desperate task to locate something, anything that would fit my needs and budget limitations.

While this is a complete assumption, I would have to say that when polling started out on a serious level, it was probably intended to be a reflection of what people thought at any given time about any subject. As the practice has evolved, things have gotten more complicated and more outlets have ventured into the polling game, things have likely changed. The results of polling from the 2016 Presidential Election are a major indication of this fact.
Now that the debates are in the books for the 2020 election year, there are certainly a few things we have learned. Some of those insights have been about either Donald Trump and Mike Pence or Joe Biden and Kamala Harris. Some have been more about the debate process itself or the importance of a quality moderator with a professional method for conducting the event. More often than not, debates don’t necessarily play a huge role in swaying voter opinion or getting people out to the polls. But, this is not a typical year and certainly not a typical election.
