 I heard Biden speaking on the radio today. The man sounds as though he barely has the strength to get the words out. I’m not liking it very much

Can we stop electing geriatrics and take an example from New Zealand?

The gap between Hillary and Trump was around 2%. This time the gap is in the double digits.

The GOP always counts on gerrymandering, vote suppression, electoral college corruption(The astounding advantage the Electoral College gives to Republicans, in one chart). This year they figure another 2-5% for the unconstitutional corruption of an additional four years of trumpism.

Also, pollsters don't just sit around twiddling their thumbs in between elections. Last election cycle was a bit of a perfect storm in terms of a highly unconventional campaign and candidate, the drastic rise in social media influence and the changing ways in which people communicate and are contactable by pollsters. But the major polling companies all have a product to sell and that product is only worth something if it works. They'll have spent the last 4 years analysing what went wrong and doing their best to fix it this time round.

 

Also, recall that the election before last how convinced all the Republicans were that the polls had got it wrong and they were actually a shoo in? That time the pollsters were proved absolutely right. So last time they got caught out, it doesn't mean they don't know what they're doing.

Hi Robert,

I seriously doubt that he could qualify to get on any ballot in any state.

According to the GOP wearing a covid mask is the same as being a Jew on the way to the gas chambers. I kid you not.

The cartoon was published on Friday on the Facebook page of the Anderson County Review, a newspaper owned by Anderson County Republican Party Chairman Dane Hicks. The cartoon features a woman wearing a mask with a Star of David attached to it in front of a line of people entering a cattle car.

TRUMP DID IT AGAIN AFTER ALMOST A DECADE. HE TOLD THE TRUTH!

You can’t chase the Trump clown car,” said a democrat election ad writer. because his base is indifferent to his ignorance. His stupidity and buffoonish conduct rolls off the backs of his supporters like water off a ducks back.

Unfortunately its taken the deaths of Americans for the light to shine on his incompetence. "Using Trump’s own words against him often tests well, as do charts and other graphics, which serve to highlight Trump’s distaste for science"

The economy and health care linked to trumps indifference to facts are where the ads strike independents. The swing voters who regret voting for trump.

“On the campaign they’ll say such horrible things about me. It’s a very unfair business,” he said on Fox News. “But the ad [Democrats] did this morning, it’s a great ad for them.”

Also with way fewer "undecided" voters but I'm still taking the stance that people CANNOT think this is a sure thing so I'm going to have to agree that this is the same dangerous mentality we saw in 2016.

Agreed. It's not over until it's over so they shouldn't be complacent.

The trump impeachment may have a second verse. His enablers seem to have outworn their welcome.

"Democrats are within striking distance of retaking the Senate majority in November, while Republicans are facing an increasingly difficult electoral map as President Trump’s sagging poll numbers threaten to drag down vulnerable GOP incumbents.

Several recent polls show Democratic challengers leading Republican incumbents in Arizona, North Carolina and Iowa. The GOP is also fending off tough challenges in a handful of other states, including Colorado, Maine and Montana."

"President Trump’s job approval rating is hovering near the low point of his presidency as core groups that propelled his 2016 run grow dissatisfied with his performance in office.

The latest Gallup survey finds that 38 percent of voters approve of the job Trump is doing, down from his all-time high of 49 percent reached in early May. The low point of Trump’s presidency came in 2017, when only 35 percent of voters said they approve of the job he’s doing.

Republicans are standing by Trump, with 91 percent saying they approve of the job he’s doing, up from 85 percent last month."

So once again confederate loving, GOP hanger-ons, are sticking with the lying commander in thief.Thirty eight percent will almost wipe out the GOP in the senate.

Fortunately for you guys most here weren't even born in '88.  "Even the mainstream media honestly reported the truth about #LIES."

 

Yes, they did, and they still do.  As a Trump supporter, you are required to refer to such reporting - both then and now - as "fake news."

trump is throwing whats left of his family under the bus.The release of “Too Much and Never Enough: How My Family Created the World’s Most Dangerous Man,” by Mary Trump, is now scheduled for July 14.

Mary Trump has now disclosed how Donald defrauded her out of her  rightful share of several homes."Ms. Trump, who is 55 and a clinical psychologist, explains how Mr. Trump “acquired twisted behaviors,” including a penchant for seeing human beings in “monetary terms” and a habit of punishing qualities like “empathy, kindness and expertise.” In the book, the statement says, Ms. Trump describes how her uncle “dismissed and derided” his own father as he succumbed to Alzheimer's disease and practiced “cheating as a way of life.”

So trump has been a scumbag his whole life. It not any sort of new development. He has defrauded family, students, the government, charities and investors.

Trump mulls replacing Jared Kushner after blaming his son-in-law for tanking poll numbers: report

"Trump and Kushner participated in a roundtable event at the White House on Monday, where Kushner appeared to declare both police brutality and systemic racism fixed.

"The law enforcement community heard the cries from the community, saw the injustices in the system that needed to be fixed and they responded by coming together to fix it," Kushner said, referring to the First Step Act, a criminal justice bill primarily aimed at reducing prison sentences. "And it's been a great partnership to do that."

"Trump is malignantly crazy about the bad poll numbers," a former West Wing official told Vanity Fair.

"He's going to broom Kushner and [campaign manager Brad] Parscale — the numbers are not getting better," a Republican source close to the campaign added.

Trump has blown up "frequently" at Kushner in the past, apparently angry that Kushner "received too much positive press" earlier this year when he appeared on the cover of Time, a longtime Trump obsession.

Sci-fi writers like me LOVE to make predictions about the future. Sometimes I'm pretty good, other times I have failed miserably. (My 2008 article for Newsvine titled 'Ten Things That Will Become Reality by 2020' was one of the 'good') Predicting we would launch a manned mission to Mars in 2020 at the same time was NOT. 9_9 That said, here are my latest entries:

  • Biden will win the Presidency but only because people can't take another four years of Trump. Many will consider him at least harmless, as in 'do no harm,' but will figure he's just the guy trying to clean up Trump's mess, not so much be a 'real' President. ("Bill! George! Anything but SUE!") 
     
  • Trump's transition team, if there is one, won't assist Biden much, and may deliberately try to sabotage the whole process a bit on their way out the door. 
     
  • The jobs numbers may be improving slowly, but the recession is still going to get worse. All those trillions of dollars we're spending to help people and fight the Covid-19 crisis will have to be paid back at some point. Higher taxes are certainly in your future. If they make corporations pay their fair share, it will help soften the blow. 
     
  • Once Trump is gone, the Justice Department and the FBI will come after he and his dishonest cronies with a vengeance. Biden will find a REAL cop to run Justice and take the Attorney General post, and then it's Katy Bar the Door for these guys. Biden himself will have little to say about this process. Not because he can't, but because he won't want to. He will let both organizations do it on their own, without interference from him. 
     
  • For at least the first two years of his term, Biden will spend a LOT of time going around hat-in-hand, and trying to fix the damage Trump caused with our closest allies. 
     
  • Biden probably won't run for a second term. That sounds unbelievable for a sitting President, but I'm still putting it on my prediction list. 
     
  • Even I have no solid prediction on who Biden will nominate for Vice-President, but if you twisted my arm, I would say he might pick Stacy Abrams. She's a woman, she's black, she would work. Elizabeth Warren is a US Senator, and US Senators have a lot more power than a VP, and more influence. Same with California's junior Senator Kamala Harris. Many people believe Harris is black. (She's actually Jamaican-American.) Both Warren and Harris might want to KEEP their jobs, rather than saying yes to Biden on a VP nod, although of the two women Harris is the one more likely to accept the nomination. On the other hand, Warren MIGHT consider it. She could see it as her road in 2024 to becoming the first woman US President. 
     
  • We've run up the Federal deficit to levels never before seen. How will we pay that off? The most likely scenario is that defense spending will be cut, taxes will be raised on both individuals and corporations, but social spending will increase. As long as the defense cuts far exceed the additional social spending, we will be fine. 
     
  • The White House, should Biden win, will almost immediately establish a Cabinet position having to do with protecting the US from future pandemics. 
     
  • Over the next couple of years, food prices will increase and despite our best efforts, so will bankruptcies of businesses both large and small. It will take years to recover from this particular recession. 
     
  • Like Obama, a President Biden will not try to circumvent the Second Amendment regarding gun ownership. But like Clinton, he may push for a ban on future sales of assault weapons, extended magazines, and call for more thorough background checks. People forget that it was Obama who called for restoring the ownership of pistols in Washington, DC and since he is a Constitutional scholar, didn't mess with the Second very much during his two terms. Biden may take the same approach, with a bit of Bill Clinton thrown in.

It's not a panic. It's just a changing of the guard. It happened to Jimmy Carter, but at least he was (is) a nice guy. And he didn't engage in lying to the American people. He even got the Nobel Prize for Peace. He served a respectable term, but had no clue on the economy. You have to give it to him that he spent a lot of time after he was President building homes for poor people, none of which had to take out subprime loans. B)
