If Biden wins, he will have to overcome voter suppression on steroids. 

 

 

I wonder if Roberts has any regrets over his monstrous destruction of the VRA.

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.

 

I have been reading about the sheer number of registered Democrats that have been voting early and by mail outpacing Republicans. There's a chance that Republicans, freaking out from Trump's rhetoric, are waiting until election day but normally it tends to be Republicans who usually vote by mail in higher numbers.

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.

   

It just looks like each of them are willing to, not only tank the other man's chances, but bring down the entire GOP, if he thought it would save himself. Only the most right-wing economist believes that the U.S. has a chance to rebound and rebuild from this with such an austere stimulus package. And make no mistake, austerity is what McConnell and Senate Republicans are proposing. 

 

It's unlikely that anything gets passed before Thanksgiving, if that. If Trump ends up a lame duck on his way out, there is no incentive to even negotiate until January, with a new Congress and God willing, a new president.

Chloe Fineman and Alex Moffat are very very funny (with Mikey Day as their straight man). Probably the only thing of worth out of this Presidency.

Trump did it the last time too - there are pictures of him with the gay flag around his back.  They have no moral bottom to what they will try and pull.  Gay flags, rainbows, and then the first move he made was to try to ban Trans people from the military - over 30,000 of them and say that he consulted with the Generals.  LOL.  No one gave him advice and he would have eliminated 30,000+ people with no plan to replace them or the jobs they do.  The whole family is a bunch of desperate reality TV ogres.  Warms my heart though to know they won't have anywhere to go once it's over.  NY doesn't want anything to do with them, and his beloved home in FL - many of the people are over him.  I know several people in upper circles in NY that have told me no one returns Ivanka and Jared's calls and they are out of the group now.  Ivanka in particular always marketed herself as a Democrat and she's a liar.

Trump himself has switched party affiliation numerous times over the years. It’s never really been about party affiliation with him. He’s opportunist and saw a weakness in the Republican Party and how far right-leaning it’s been over the last 25+ years, and used that as an excuse to highjack it for his own personal gain.

 

If the Republicans lose their majority in the Senate and Trump loses this election, they really have no one else to blame. They’re clearly going to have to move in some other direction as this election is more of a referendum on Trumpism that anything else.
