It’s getting kinda exciting, isn’t it? Today, Sleepy Joe called at lid at 9am while Trump is doing rallies in Maine and New Hampshire. A CBS poll shows Biden up 3 in FL while a Trafalgar poll shows Trump up 2. The GOP seems to be crushing it in Texas early voting and doing remarkably well in early voting in Florida. The Democrats continue to show strength in early voting in Arizona while there was, I’m not kidding, a Gays for Trump rally in West Hollywood, California yesterday (it went for Hillary over Trump by 72 percentage points in 2016: this is the heart of the Blue Beast, folks: takes massive guts to even say you’re Republican there). There does appear to be more to come in the Hunter Biden scandal. How do I know? Twitter still has the NY Post’s account locked. How much of it drops before election day is the only mystery here.
The guys I follow for election analysis are uniformly confident of a Trump victory: the only difference between them is the predicted margin. They run from narrow to big wins. Who can really say? What we can say is that if you’re polling the same population and one of you gets A +3 and the other gets B +2…one of you is lying. And that is the tale of 2020, really: the mainstream polls and analysis are so entirely different from the outsider polls and analysis that either the mainstream or the outsiders are simply lying. We find out for sure on 11/3 who it is – though it should be noted that the mainstream has a track record of lying about everything. Small bit of data to indicate how things are going: this guy tracked Ohio votes in 2016 and now 2020 and says that Hillary was up 7.6 in 2016 at this point…but here in 2020, the GOP is up 4.5.
ACB is going to get confirmed to the Supreme Court Monday evening…and expect a lot of new and renewed GOP challenges to Democrat election shennanigans right after that. Senator Murkowski decided that, on the whole, she’d rather remain a Republican Senator and so will vote to confirm ACB. She must have got one heck of a blowback.
Jews for Trump: it is a thing.
We get this every four years: a Democrat saying that the GOP is doomed by demographics. In this case, it is now Gen Z which will do us in…does anyone want to tell this guy that the hippies of 1970 are now wearing MAGA hats? People change. Socialism seems a good idea to an ignorant 18 year old. Houses, kids, bills and taxes give you different priorities.
Robert Reich wants to drag all of us Trump voters before a Truth and Reconciliation Commission if Biden wins. Anyone want to tell him that he only gets to do that after his side wins a civil war?
Pennsylvania miners are still hurting, but they are voting Trump. This is likely because Trump doesn’t hold them in utter contempt.
Kanye West may be lots of things – but he’s also getting lots of things right. He’s pointing out the absolute, inhuman horror which is abortion in the black community. I have actually made a few Leftist friends of late – lost some of my older ones, as well. But it seems to me that there is a segment of the population, which might be growing, which is willing to re-establish basic sanity in our society. My view is that if anyone is coming forward with a sane proposal, from whatever background, we should listen.
Biden’s astonishing statement that he will phase out oil is causing downballot problems for Democrats. Out here, the big House race is NV03 where the Dem incumbent is locked in a furious race against her GOP challenger. The intensity of it is shown by the fact that her first series of ads were mere mudslinging at the GOPer. But here’s something she hasn’t said: “Joe Biden”. The GOPer gratefully accepted Trump’s ringing endorsement…but the Dem doesn’t seem to be too pleased to cling tight to Biden, whom the polls say is leading here. Odd, huh?
I feel good. But, it is all in God’s hands, anyways. Being that we’re now 9 days out and I’m Catholic, I’ve started a Divine Mercy novena. I think we’re going to win this – but, one cannot know the future. I think my best advice is just to have fun with it, now. All we get to do here is vote: once you’ve done that, you’re just a spectator to events.
