Those last two signs are awesome.

Did my civic duty today. Nothing left to do but wait.

this could be interesting

Commission approves rules to mute mics at final Trump-Biden debate


ďBoth campaigns this week again reaffirmed their agreement to the two-minute, uninterrupted rule. The Commission is announcing today that in order to enforce this agreed upon rule, the only candidate whose microphone will be open during these two-minute periods is the candidate who has the floor under the rules,Ē


It's like dealing with pre-schoolers

how pathetic that this is the state of our politics - what's next, offering a pacifier to the debater who doesn't have the mic?

I wonder if debate will happen?

valid question.  trump had indicated after the first debate that he wouldn't accept having his mic turned off ("why should i, when i won the first debate?"). 

smart/sneaky how the commission did this: first got the campaigns to agree to a principle (2 minutes of uninterrupted opening statements), then BOOM hit them with the mute rule.  it's going to be hard for the campaigns to object now.

Itís amazing how many people have already voted and in some key states...NC/GA/MI/VA/FL/AZ already have over 30% of total votes from 2016


Unless the polls are wrong -and they could be as in many states the difference between Trump and Biden is less than 3% - or turnout of Trumpís base explodes you would have to think this increases the level of difficulty for Trump

Because we know for a fact Trump thinks he is behind or he wouldnít be campaigning in GA and NC!

On the other hand we also know Trump thought he was behind in 2016.....and he was until Comey...the difference is not that many people were early voting in 2016...that makes it more difficult to turn it around

Remember, turning off the mic is only a benefit for the viewers.  The debaters will still be able to hear each other and will still serve as a distraction.

Just like a couple of pre-schoolers.

I'm still worried for October surprises...I'm thinking of race war/terror attack
I kind of thought the vaccine/cure was going to be it, but at this point, not enough time

What doesn't look good is basically the major spike in Covid cases is a Red state map...MAGA's with family/neighbors are going to be greatly impacted, unlike in the Spring when it hit the Blue states hard
That will have to have an impact on support in those areas...we really only need 1% swing in some states

in 2016...people were not excited and thought Hil was a shoe-in
additionally, there were TONS of undecided and third-party candidates that were getting tons of support in those key states
the microtargetng in 2016 was also very effective
I just don't think with the increased turnout that trump can pull this off

I heard ∑ Mike Madrid say that it's possible 160 million votes could be cast in 2020 (137 were in 2016)
if that actually happens, there is zero chance that trump can pull off an EC win

fundamentalists, of many different stripes, want this.  they want the final judgement, they want this life to be over and start the eternal life with their savior etc etc etc.  so yeah, having a religious leader say that a trump reelection with being about Armageddon is a strong selling point for the fundies.  it'll get them to the polls, if abortion hasn't already.
