2020 Elections

Generally an unmoderated forum for discussion of pretty much any topic. The focus however, is usually politics.

Fingers crossed....
Same poll, Biden +9 in NC. However, the RCP Average is Biden +1.4.

Then, the RCP Average is Cunningham +1.0.

It beats being behind. :thumbup:

Trump now faces the deepest polling hole for an incumbent since 1992

Be careful with that polling data, we all know few Trump supporters participate in polls due to the complexity of the process.

As Trump visits Wisconsin, new poll shows him trailing Biden by double digits in key battleground state

President Donald Trump is visiting Wisconsin on Thursday in a bid to shore up support in the battleground state, as a new poll shows him 11 points behind Joe Biden....

A New York Times/Siena College survey released Thursday showed Trump with an 11-point deficit against Biden in Wisconsin, and put the president behind the former vice president in five other battleground states.

RealClearPolitics’ average of Wisconsin polls gives Biden an eight-point lead....

'Please for the love of God do not vote for my dad': (MI) Republican's daughter voices opposition

... “Tell everyone,” Stephanie Regan wrote in a viral tweet – which has now been liked more than 180,000 times on Twitter....

Regan is running in Michigan’s primary for a state house seat this August.

Stephanie Regan’s words seem to have come as a blow to her father, who has espoused a commitment to his family on his campaign website, using multiple photos of himself and his children to support his campaign.

Robert Regan has spoken on local TV since his daughter sent out the tweet, blaming her liberal college education for her views.

“When they go off to college, quite frankly they get involved with these Marxist, socialist universities ,and they start getting indoctrinated with things that are completely polar opposite from where you raised them,” Regan told local TV.

Regan, who describes himself on his own website as “so conservative [he] makes Rush Limbaugh look like a liberal,” says he and his daughter have disagreed on systemic racism, white privilege and Black Lives Matter.

“She’s a big believer in that,” he told the Hill. “The only place where I really see systemic racism would be the abortion clinic, because they seem to target the African American community.” ...

I would be doing that kind of thing if my sister were running for elective office. The higher the office, the more I would speak out.

If sisters or B-I-Ls ran, I would definitely be on a soapbox. The only trouble would be that most Alabama voters would approve of them and throw stuff at me.

What do you suppose he thinks the abortion clinics do to "target" the African American community? Go out in plain white vans and snarf pregnant Black women off the street? You'd think he'd approve of anything that resulted in fewer Black people.

Biden Takes Dominant Lead as Voters Reject Trump on Virus and Race

Some predicted that PINO would kill the GOP for a generation, but it seemed as much wishful thinking as anything. Now . . .

Because of CV-19 Biden has been very limited in appearances and the news. This would normally give a massive advantage to an incumbent. However, it looks like the winning strategy this year is for 45SHOLE to keep talking and Joe Gaffe not to. :lol:
Trump mocks 'basement' strategy but prudent approach pays off for Biden

Centrist Dem Amy McGrath beats Charles Booker in Kentucky primary to face McConnell

Darn. Since I have no idea whether the winning formula for beating Moscow Mitch is moderate and women's appeal or progressive and Black enthusiasm, I was hoping for Charles "from the hood to the holler" Booker. Oh well, good luck, Amy, and keep fighting, Charles.

"Dr. Karen Berg defeated Republican candidate Bill Ferko by 14 points"!!!

Special elections tend to favor Repugs, something I would expect to be exacerbated by CV-19. I knew a Karen Berg in college, but she's a different one.

PBS: The last incumbent POTUS to win that was this far behind in July was HST in 1948, and that was barely.

How the Republican Convention Created Money Woes in Two Cities

The headline is somewhat misleading.

Charlotte misses out on visitor spending, but benefited from money already spent there.
Jacksonville is screwed.
The RNC is really screwed.
The DNC is coping well.
