Here's an article laying out what I was saying last week about how the election begins in many places in about 35-57 days from now. And Trump campaign is taking a break to try and retool right now. The chaos president has brought it to his own campaign.
(Again, this week through the 21st of August will be dominated by VP and Dem convention, leaving the number of days of real campaigning before the earliest voting starts to about 15-40 days)

Yes, it’s absolutely imperative for Dems on the ground to get massive numbers of voters in as soon as possible. That way you eliminate impacts of COVID running rampant in the fall, last minute issues with mail delivery (for those who can vote that way) and heaven knows what other shit hits the country from Labour Day until Election Day.

The other thing is, leverage all this current Trump anger into downticket voting. Very likely that you’ll find voters who can’t stand him but are otherwise apathetic or uninvolved politically. If you can get those to vote D up and down the ballot, the GOP is totally screwed.

In my gut, heart and brain I absolutely think Trump is done and every day now that we’re less than 100 days away is a day closer to something akin to going into cancer remission. But he’s not the only one on the ticket.

I remember taking an elevator with her the day after the election at my old job and wanting to turn to her and tell her to fuck off so badly but biting my tongue because I didn't want to get fired.

I regret my decision to this day.

Looks like the new Trump campaign team is firing on all cylinders!
After taking a break from ad buys to "retool their message" they are back!

You get the weirdest ever ultra-micro targeted ads in this market. Like there’s been a recent ad where South Asian children wonder aloud if Dick Durban hates them.

No one understands statistics like Trump.

In this case their micro target is one orange creature.

I agree.

I think Trumps response MIGHT have been different if this virus impacted white folk a little more.

He always projects onto others what he’s actually doing.

He knows vote by mail is going to be huge this election, so he’s going to tamper with it.

There’s this nugget too

Well, I think we can rule out Karen Bass for VP. I mean, already being the least known and most boring of the pack - having to come out and say - I'm not a communist, probably isn't great for her chances.

Well saying "I am a communist" would have been worse.
As I mentioned previously, 2020 is not the year to have a candidate named "Karen" regardless of qualifications. Would be far too easy fodder for memes and the like.

Is it wrong for a straight guy like me to have a crush on Jonathan Swan? He is glorious.

I'm surprised he continues to agree to these interviews that show him to be a blathering moron.
Somehow he thinks (and his rumpswabs must tell him) that he comes across well in these settings.

Remember, this is the campaign that still calls his tear gas visit to the church to hold a bible upside down a huge win!
