    Trump's seniors moment

    Something wild and unexpected unfolded in the second half of President Trump's term, and now is accelerating: Elderly Americans, who helped elect him, have swung sharply against him.


    Why it matters: National and state polls show a total Trump collapse among Americans 65 and older. If this chasm remains, it could help bring the whole Republican power structure down with Trump.


    In what has been a 50-50ish nation, it's stunning to see polling gaps this wide:


    In a NBC/Wall Street Journal poll out Sunday, Joe Biden led Trump by 27 points among seniors (62% to 35%).

    In a CNN/SSRS poll out yesterday, similar story — 21 points (60% to 39%).

    This is a group Trump won by seven points in 2016.


    The same gap shows up in state polling, including the critical battlegrounds of Florida and Pennsylvania.
    The movement predates the virus. CNN polling guru Harry Enten notes that a year ago, Biden was up 11 points over Trump with seniors in a CNN poll.


    �� The main pre-pandemic reasons were health care and his strength with women, Axios' Alexi McCammond and Margaret Talev wrote in May.

    Republicans believe the big reason for the current chasm is the coronavirus, which has hit seniors far harder than any age group. A former senior White House official who remains close to the team told Axios:


    "[A] few of us screamed from the rooftops to them about in March. Who [cares] what anyone else thinks? If you can't win seniors, you can't win."

    "And, if you don't take something that is killing old people seriously, you will lose seniors."

    Between the lines: More women vote than men. More women go to college than men. More women than ever are running for election and winning. And more women than ever are turning on Trump and the GOP.


    The bottom line: Younger, white men alone do not a victory make. So the 65+ trend represents a clear and present danger to the vitality and viability of the GOP.


    Trump has undermined himself with old people, women and minorities.

    National Journal's Josh Kraushaar tweeted yesterday: "That’s going to be the story of this election: Pivotal Trump voting bloc in 2016 becoming part of the Biden base."

    Trump'''s collapse among seniors could endanger the entire Republican Party - Axios

    Four years later I am still stunned that a country which is supposed to be "the best country in the world" actually elected Trump, and the only person they then put up against him as the replacement is someone arguably more corrupt than LBJ and Nixon combined. Actually, yes I can believe it.

    He'll still win though. All the polls are trying to build and manipulate a consensus rather than be an accurate representation. Didn't you guys learn anything from the last time?

    Do you think he's trying to get them all out before he slips into a coma?

    In the space of a little over two hours on Wednesday morning -- beginning at around 8:15 a.m. -- Trump tweeted or retweeted or retweeted himself more than four dozen times, according to a count kept by CNN's Sam Fossum.

    More about The Art of the Deal (above) and the chapter that was left out (hostage taking) Friday morning (thai time).

    Until then, yesterday’s news from Trump appointed Federal Reserve Chairman Jerome Powell

    Fed Chair Powell calls for more help from Congress, says there’s a low risk of ‘overdoing it’

    Federal Reserve Chairman Jerome Powell called Tuesday for continued aggressive fiscal and monetary stimulus for an economic recovery that he said still has “a long way to go.”

    Noting progress made in job creation, goods consumption and business formation, among other areas, Powell said that now would be the wrong time for policymakers to take their foot off the gas.

    Doing so, he said, could “lead to a weak recovery, creating unnecessary hardship for households and businesses” and thwart a rebound that thus far has progressed more quickly than expected.

    “By contrast, the risks of overdoing it seem, for now, to be smaller,” Powell added in remarks to the National Association for Business Economics. “Even if policy actions ultimately prove to be greater than needed, they will not go to waste. The recovery will be stronger and move faster if monetary policy and fiscal policy continue to work side by side to provide support to the economy until it is clearly out of the woods.”: Fed Chair Powell calls for more help from Congress, says there'''s a low risk of '''overdoing it'''

    Good debate, the star being the fly that was attracted by Pence's bullshit and thus sat on Pence's head for ten minutes. I guessing every time Kamala saw it, she had to keep from laughing.

    Unless they are isolating in their own house, there's nothing abnormal about that.

    Biden kissed his missus after the last debate.

    Well quite aside from the optics and message it sends all spectators were required by the debate rules to be wearing masks.

    Doubt the debate will make much difference. They both did what they had to do. Decent performance from both but imo Pence sees the writting on the wall.

    Hope he enjoys retirement.
