    The Lincoln Project is now taking shot at some of Trumps cronies. Good one on Mitch McConnell of Kentucky.

    The Supreme Court ruled unanimously Monday that a state may require presidential electors to support the winner of its popular vote
    What a surprise... The electors cannot support the one they want?

    I wish Biden would choose Duckworth for VP.

    Duckworth emerges as contender for Biden running mate

    I would love for her to be president some day.

    Does the general public believe that she qualifies as a natural born citizen? She will have the issue of half the country claiming that as she was born in Thailand and does not qualify to be President and therefore cannot not be VP. The Democrats don't need that baggage and I believe will not choose her based on that. To much risk. The Republicans will have a field day propagandising her as a "foreign born" citizen.

    No one ever questioned John McCain’s citizenship. Don’t know why they would hers. She is a natural born citizen.

    The Republicans will find something to go on the warpath about whoever the candidate is.

    I understand what you are saying They can try it, but they would be wrong. It does not matter where a person is born but to whom .
    Case and point Senator Cruz who was born in Canada to an American mother and a Cuban Father, It did not stop him from running for president 2016 And since Duckworth's father was American so is she.
    This is not 2016 ,I like to see bone spur fat boy try his shit against Duckworth . A mother, Highly decorated combat veteran , double amputee as a result of combat injuries, Highly respected, a woman of color with a long history of service to her country.
    .
    The sooner you fall behind, the more time you have to catch up.

    Tammy Duckworth must be a real threat to Republicans. Tucker Carlson has gone after her two nights in a row.

    Fox News host calls Sen. Tammy Duckworth a '''moron''' and claims she'''s using her military injuries to silence critics

    When Trump wins the election and gets a second term in office will we have another 4 year temper tantrum from the Lefty loons or will they accept the result this time?

    You're saying only the 'lefty loons' disliked him . . . and who didn't accept the result?

    No, I asked will there be another 4 year temper tantrum from the Lefty loons. I said nothing of them being the only ones who dislike Trump, nothing of the sort.

    There's a difference between not accepting the results - which was not and is not the case. The fact that Trump received millions fewer votes than Clinton would rankle me too. The electoral college is an anti-democratic abomination.

    A strong majority of registered voters say they don’t believe Democrats have accepted that President Trump won the election fairly or that he is a legitimate president.
    This is not the same as Democrats not accepting the election or legitimacy.

    According to data from the latest Harvard-Harris poll provided exclusively to The Hill, 68 percent of voters said Democrats have not accepted that Trump won fairly and is a legitimate president.
    Same here; Same thing. I can say that you are a black Swede but that you can't accept that fact.

    Only four months into Trump’s presidency, Democrats have openly discussed impeachment and have accused the president of colluding with Russia to win the 2016 election, as well as trying to block investigations into the matter.
    Because he committed impeachable offences and was impeached.  Again, this has nothing to do with whether or not Democrats accept his election

    And on and on it goes.

    I doubt it's personal. I just replied and the post disappeared and a sys error came up.

    Certainly sounded like it, though. Can you imagine the right wing inbreds throwing their temper tantrum when Trump loses by a landslide?

    some good news...
    Hawkfish, a tech firm founded by billionaire former presidential candidate Mike Bloomberg, has signed on with a pro-Joe Biden super PAC.
    The PAC, American Bridge, has spent millions of dollars on ads on TV and online in support of the former vice president’s bid for the White House.
    Hawkfish will target people who voted for President Trump in the key battleground states of Pennsylvania, Michigan and Wisconsin.
    apparently their objective is to go negative on trump 24/7 with cambridge analytics style targeting.

    it's a dirty business, but these are times that warrant such actions.

    Biden Widens Lead Over Trump To 15 Points In Presidential Race, Quinnipiac University National Poll Finds; Trump Job Approval Rating Drops To 36 Percent

    As coronavirus cases surge and states rollback re-openings, former Vice President Joe Biden opens up his biggest lead this year over President Donald Trump in the race for the White House. Registered voters back Biden over Trump 52 - 37 percent, according to a Quinnipiac (KWIN-uh-pea-ack) University national poll released today. This compares to a June 18th national poll when Biden led Trump 49 - 41 percent. Since March, Biden's lead had ranged from 8 to 11 percentage points.


    Independents are a key factor behind Biden's widening lead as they now back him 51 - 34 percent, while in June, independents were split with 43 percent for Biden and 40 percent for Trump. There is also some movement among Republicans as they back Trump 84 - 9 percent, compared to 92 - 7 percent in June. Democrats go to Biden 91 - 5 percent, little changed from 93 - 4 percent in June.


    "Yes, there's still 16 weeks until Election Day, but this is a very unpleasant real time look at what the future could be for President Trump. There is no upside, no silver lining, no encouraging trend hidden somewhere in this survey for the president," said Quinnipiac University Polling Analyst Tim Malloy.

    The signs of a Democratic landslide are everywhere

    With just more than 100 days left before the 2020 election, there are an increasing number of red flags that suggest Republicans are headed toward a disastrous result at the ballot box this fall.

    Consider:

    * President Trump's ratings on his handling of the coronavirus pandemic continue to collapse. In a new Washington Post-ABC News poll, just 38% approved of how Trump has dealt with the virus while 60% disapproved. Back in March, 51% approved of how Trump was handling the pandemic while 45% disapproved in that same poll. As the public has soured on Trump's ability to deal with the coronavirus pandemic, it has also moved heavily in Joe Biden's favor in general election polling. The former vice president leads Trump by 15 and 11 points in two new national polls released this week.

    * Democrats have a double-digit lead in party identification. In a new Gallup number, 50% of Americans identify as Democrats or Democratic leaners while 39% describe themselves as Republicans or Republican leaners. That's a major shift from January when Republicans had a 47% to 45% edge on party ID in Gallup polling and a rapid acceleration of Democrats' advantage since even May when Democrats had a 3-point edge on the party ID question.

    * Democrats are crushing Republicans in fundraising. The Democratic candidates in the 11 most competitive Senate contests in the country raised a collective $67.3 million in between April 1 and June 30 --- $20.5 million morethan their Republican counterparts, according to tabulations made by the Wall Street Journal. The story is the same in the House where Democratic candidates raised $457 million in that 2nd quarter of 2020 compared to $365 million for Republican candidates. And, as the Center for Responsive Politics, which did that calculation, notes:
    "That fundraising difference is even larger in swing districts currently held by well-funded Democratic incumbents.

    "Recent filings show that Democrats are widening the gap. In 13 races holding primaries in June and July that are considered competitive by the Cook Political Report, incumbent Democrats have 9 times more money in the bank -- $40 million to $4.5 million -- than the best-funded Republican challengers."

    Political handicappers are taking notice.

    On Friday, the Cook Political Report moved 20(!) House races in favor of Democrats -- an unprecedented shift to one party. As House editor David Wasserman wrote:

    "President Trump's abysmal polling since the pandemic began is seriously jeopardizing down-ballot GOP fortunes. We may be approaching the point at which dozens of House Republicans will need to decide whether to cut the president loose and run on a "check and balance" message, offering voters insurance against congressional Democrats moving too far left under a potential Biden administration....

    "...Republicans began the cycle hoping to pick up 18 seats to win the majority back. Now they're just trying to avoid a repeat of 2008, when they not only lost the presidency but got swamped by Democrats' money and lost even more House seats after losing 30 seats and control two years earlier. For the first time this cycle, Democrats have at least as good a chance at gaining House seats as Republicans on a net basis."

    Earlier this week, Inside Elections' editor Nathan Gonzales wrote this of the state of play in the Senate (bolding is mine):

    "The Senate has been in play for at least nine months, but Democratic chances of winning control of the chamber have improved significantly in the last few weeks....

    "...Democrats need a net gain of four seats for a majority, but can control the Senate by gaining three seats and winning the White House. With less than four months to go before Election Day, the most likely outcome is a Democratic net gain of 3-5 Senate seats. Since Biden has a clear advantage in the presidential race, that means Democrats are more likely than not to win control of the Senate."

    On the presidential level, Trump is in equally bad shape. The Cook Report gives Biden 279 electoral votes in the solid, likely or leaning Democrat categories as compared to just 188 for Trump. This week the University of Virginia's Crystal Ball moved seven traditional Republican strongholds -- Alaska, Indiana, Kansas, Missouri, Montana, South Carolina and Utah -- from safe Republican states to likely Republican states and into the slate of potential competitive races in the presidential race.

    As UVA's Kyle Kondik wrote:

    "Trump is extremely unlikely to win if the polls continue to look the way they do now. And if these numbers represent a new normal, we need to account for the possibility that this election won't be particularly close, and that new states may come into play. In other words, if the national picture remains bleak for Trump, then the slippage he's seen from earlier this year wouldn't just be limited to a handful of swing states."

    In short: All the signs are there that this could be a landslide up and down the ballot for Democrats. Yes, things could change between now and November 3. But, given Trump's obstinacy in refusing to admit his errors in dealing with the coronavirus and the current spikes in some of the most populous states in the country, such a turnaround seems very, very unlikely at the moment.

    Not good when the bookies are against you.

    I don't think Clinton ever had that kind of advantage.

    it's promising, but don't count your chickens....we're still over 100 days out from election day.

    and the national nightmare won't be over until he leaves (or is forcibly removed) on jan 20th.
