Oh, dear, the fire amoke!

Holding my own, w bouts of extra fear and tiredness bc of drumph, and CV. Good dristractions with on line movies, TV, books, talking w fam & friends (we get serious, too). Hopefully more crafts and art, plus as summer heat goes away time to try being the good cook I once was! Mostly staying in.

And hanging out on Democratic voter sites. Just joined Twitter to follow favorite
journalists/polititical talk peoole, plus Science, Nature, Crafts etc

How's your apt?

Ugh... I remember it all.

(Seriously, one would think the party would've learned after the embarrassments that were Quayle and Palin, but nope, apparently their takeaway from those two was that they really needed and wanted to keep doubling down on the stupid and the crazy.)
Oh....Dan Quayle!

We're seeing the last, desperate gasps of a political party that belongs in the middle part of the last century, generously speaking.

Ispos - Sept 25-29th. Biden +9

Last Ispos poll Sept. 18-22nd was Biden +6

I did not expect to see this fast of an effect. and it may not be all about the debate, and it may be all three polls are just shifts within the margin of error and mean nothing. But maybe not. We will have to look for a similar trend over the next few days to see if this sticks.
So far in the last two days, Biden's 538 average has gone from 7.1 to 7.9
The SC nominee, the tax revelation, the debate, it all adds up. Been a rough week for Trump, no matter what he claims on Twitter.

Trump just lost super asshole Scott Adams. this very wealthy white man was personally harmed when Trump refused to denounce white supremacy, and instead encouraged it.

He’s been a darling of right wing media outlets, blogs etc so this will be very delicious to watch.

Nope, still an asshole:

Even better. Trump drops out, and Biden still goes to do the town hall debate alone.

It feels like the NYT finally realized that Trump is a danger. 4 years too late.

Well just today a couple of GOP strategists said they should be tailoring their message to moderate republicans... WOW. Talk about late.

Can you post what you mean about NYT?

Huh. Interesting. I missed this, but Nate Silver posted.

The other full post-debate poll we have today is a Biden +2 in Georgia. Not *that* different from other recent polls of the state. But this firm had Trump +7 in late August and +3 in mid-August so a pretty big swing to Biden.

Is it important for Vice President Biden to tell us if he'd try to expand the Supreme Court on his watch?

Seems a fundamental position voters should know about, and know now....

The obvious answer is yes if the democrats manage to pull a trifecta and no if they can’t take the senate. There should be no doubt about this.

Much like how Newt Gingrich and Nancy Pelosi ruined our government with obstructionism, republicans ruined our Supreme Court with Garland v Barrett. There’s no reason for Democrats to show any form of restraint or good faith if there’s no reason for republicans to do so.

Our government is trash and greed and selfishness will only create more greed and selfishness as we continually implode. The sanctity of the court is already ruined.

Agreed.

Let's take a moment, too, for Sen. Harry Reid.

Thanks Harry.
