I take it that you believe that Trump will get another term in office?

 

I think it's going to be very close. Right now if I had to guess I'd say a narrow Biden win, with a lot of litigation and street violence, and a tied or R+1/2 Senate. I hope I'm wrong and it's better for the Democrats but I think there's just too much boiling under the surface.

Let's hope.

 

Flop sweat alert. They're lucky Biden is so into bipartisanship as that's the slim chance they have of this not happening if Democrats win the Senate - a decision they created and they are wholly responsible for.

I will never understand why it's seen as a positive thing that someone who runs for political office has no experience in politics?!

 

Word. "I didn't want another politician in the White House," I heard people say back in 2016. It's like, what line of work do you think the President of the United States is?  Podiatry? Kindergarten teacher? Plumber? Idiots...

Agree.  There's a lot of early and absentee voting going on, but does that mean all or most of those votes are going to Biden?

Does it seem like Senate Republicans and the White House are bent on mutual destruction where the stimulus is concerned? Granted, Trump is completely unreliable and prone to change his mind faster than the weather but he and Mitch McConnell seem to be locked in a battle of wills as far as their ceilings on the total amount for the stimulus package.

It sounds to me like they're running from it, but my bet is Trump's ego will force him to show up against the admin's advice and implode again.

I know some on the right have claimed the early numbers are good for Republicans - I haven't checked as they always lie, but I imagine Democrats will have an advantage in that vote which is then matched by Republicans on Election Day. My main worry is how many of those mailed in votes are going to disappear. I hope most people, if they can, are voting on the day, but I am not one to make those proclamations as I am voting by mail this year.

It's bad for Trump, good for Senate Republicans. They can claim they are the party of austerity (with various outlets like NYT already pushing stuff about the deficit again), crash the economy, and blame Biden for it if he wins, setting up a comeback narrative in 2022. I just hope Democrats can win the Senate because if they don't then Republicans will do nothing, other than investigate Hunter and wait for the clock to run out.

I don't know about the mail in vote particularly in states that use mail in votes like Florida and Arizona. I was reading an article(can't find it) in I think WAPO about how mail in voting has the GOP in Florida very nervous particularly the numbers they are seeing. Trump has so many freaked out about mail in their normal mail in engine in Florida is having to retool at the last minute and they are extremely worried that a machine they had down is now being disrupted by Trump and are not sure of they will be able to account for it.
