Yeah. The GOP is Trump's party, there is no way out. If they lost the hardcore Trump supporters, they'd surely lose Senate seats in places like Iowa, Montana, Georgia and South Carolina. Not to mention House and down ballot races.

Problem for the GOP is that at some point, they may not have a choice. If Trump deteriorates further, that may force their hand to make a move.

But of course, if they were capable of being aware of and considering such possibilities, we probably wouldn't be in this mess right now, so...

...wow.


Trump deteriorating after he won would put Pence in charge and would be a slow demise to Trumpism 1-2 elections afterwards.

I think a decisive Trump loss now can defeat Trumpism once and for all, and it’s imperative that he doesn’t win or die (I think a Covid death would almost assuredly get Pence the victory because there would be soooo many more people willing to vote for what they perceive on short notice as a behaved Trump).

I haven’t seen anyone mention Biden’s Gettysburg speech. Gotta say. Just amazing. Groundbreaking in ways. No other candidate including Obama said the things he said about race and justice in America. And not the pie in the sky America that is bellowed about, but facing it in the reality of what America is. Powerful stuff.

Fully speculative here, but the lack of hearing much of anything from Chris Christie makes me think he’s not okay.

Wasn’t it him who said some people will just have to die?? Hard to feel anything for such a guy who says that yet he can walk into any hospital and get the best treatment possible that any of us would surely not be able to get! It wouldn’t really make me feel anything knowing that he is not ok!

Probably going to be another big polling day. Mostly some bigger name state polls coming out.

So far

Emerson - PA Biden +4
Civiqs - TX - Tied
IA - Biden +1

Stay Tuned for NV, OH, and WI later today

Yes Newsweek, we need to know Ken Friggin' Bone's thoughts on the race.
What about Joe The Plumber, I assume he'll get a 2 hour network TV special soon.

Looking forward to the OH and NV from them today. Especially OH. By Cohn's hints, looking like it will be a tied to possibly Biden +1ish...

He's such an entertainer. Just not a funny one:

Quote:
Enter Rudy Giuliani, Trump’s personal lawyer, who decided to spend Monday night coughing through an interview with Martha MacCallum on Fox News, announcing that the science on Covid is in fact baloney, and with it the science on mask-wearing, too.

That Giuliani is anti-mask is not surprising. He did, after all, spend the last week indoors with the president, sans mask, as he helped Trump prep for the presidential debates. But you’d think Giuliani might soften his stance on masks, considering that since he and Chris Christie were trapped in a room with the president , that Christie has since tested positive for the virus, and that he and the president were both hospitalized.

Giuliani has, at least, taken heed and gotten a test – he confirmed on MacCallum’s show that he is awaiting the results of a second coronavirus test. But the fact the interview took place just two hours after his test (and without the results yet in) did not stop Giuliani gloating that he had not yet contracted Covid-19 and dishing out advice to Fox’s viewership.

“Just to play devil’s advocate, [Biden] would probably say, ‘I haven’t gotten Covid and the president did, and he’s not a big fan of wearing masks’,” pointed out MacCallum, before being interjected by Giuliani.

“And I haven’t either, and I don’t wear masks as much as probably I should … What they claim is science is nonsense,” said Giuliani.

Moments later, Giuliani again began coughing and hacking, prompting MacCallum to close with well wishes.

“Mayor Giuliani, thank you so much for your time, and we look forward to having you back. And I hope that cough is not anything bad while you are waiting for your test to come back,” she said, adding: “We hope you will be healthy and well.”

“I hope so, too,” said Giuliani. “I will let you know tomorrow.”

Ted Cruz (a) has a sad and (b) is starting to accept reality. What about the rest?

Quote:
I'm worried about the election. I think it's really volatile. I think it could go either way. I think we could have a fantastic election, the president could win by a big margin and we could win both houses of Congress, but I also think it could be devastating.

And I think we either win the presidency and win the Senate, or we lose the presidency and lose the Senate, and I very much hope it's the former and not the latter. And it depends on turnout. It depends on who shows up.
...

The left is showing up. They're pissed off. They hate Trump. We've got to make sure everyone else shows up.

the designers of illegal sports stream websites and video game torrent sites could take some tips from the webmaster of newsweek on how to make a website with the most obnoxious, intrusive pop-up content imaginable.
