If McDonald's Corporate Executives Get Their Way

Barron's on a Biden Presidency:

"..... calls the Democratic labor agenda the most underappreciated election-related 
risk, as a higher minimum wage and new laws to organize workplaces would be 
priorities, especially hurting McDonald’s, while more labor protections for gig 
economy workers would affect companies like Uber."

Positioning your portfolio for a Biden Presidency

In 2016, Trump Was Losing in the Polls up to and including election night projections at 10:30 pm ET. Did you Invest for a Hillary Clinton Presidency? "Covid-19 has remade this election, Barron's says. Not so long ago, this seemed like Trump’s election to lose." This is such BS. Well before Covid, the fake news polls had President Trump losing by double digits to Biden:

CNN 3/4 - 3/7 1084 RV3.5 53 43 Biden +10
Quinnipiac 3/5 - 3/8 1261 RV 2.8 52 41 Biden +11
Harvard-Harris 2/26 - 2/28 2592 RV -- 55 45 Biden +10
IBD/TIPP 2/20 - 2/29 839 RV 3.5 49 46 Biden +3
FOX News 2/23 - 2/26 1000 RV 3.0 49 41 Biden +8

The LAST thing our country needs right now is higher taxes. A Biden presidency, and a Democrat congress, GUARANTEE THAT!!!!

The day of the 2016 election, Hillary Clinton was a 95% sure thing. The only sure thing about todays media, is their bias and untrustworthiness. If your still trying to capture a pulse from the television, your still part of the problem.

If your in business and think youll surive in a Biden presidency, with the social/communist agenda... your an idiot. Deserving all the failure and loss coming your way. Plain and simple.

In 1776, Americans bet their lives, their fortunes and their sacred honor to forge this nation. Today, our leaders cant settle a simple $1 drink debate. So hole up somewhere, as the real work gets accomplished in the upcoming election, and saving a nation takes place.

This election has been over for 3 years. Trump will win in a Landslide. He will Win 45 states and surpass Reagan’s numbers.

Interesting Wall Street perspective:

"JPMorgan posited that the best case for the markets would be if Biden wins and the Republicans hold on to the Senate. In that scenario, there would be an end to capriciousness and worrisome policy particularly when it comes to China and the rest of the world that some say currently emanates from 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue, while the Senate would hold the Democrats' more liberal leanings in check."

It's true that Americans historically have chosen--through the electoral process, consciously or not--in favor of divided government.

So the pajama boys at JP Morgan want the USA to roll over and play dead?

But you're right about divided government. That's why in off-year congressional elections the voters most often give one or both chambers of Congress to the party opposite the President.

One place voters don't seem to like divided government is the state of California but don't get me started.

I’m pretty sure that Chris K and Joe E shouldnt speak on most subjects.
Taking sides on social issues is not good for business, and they dont even understand that their opinions are too biased/privileged/etc to mean much anyways.

I doubt Andy could afford the pay cut.
