    Trump is getting HAMMERED in wake county where Raleigh is in UNC. Hilary in ALL of 2016 got 300k votes while campaigners on the ground have said Biden already has 225k out of the total 327k votes cast there already. He is absolutely destroying Trump in Charlotte as well. DESTROYING him

    If Trump doesn't flip the script in NC quickly this is game over. There's no road to the WH w/o NC or AZ for Trump.

    I'm normally not a poll guy but the closer we get the more important they become. From Real Clear politics.

    that's not true at all. There's something called herding in polling. The most unreliable polls are those right before election day. FiveThirtyEight had a good podcast on this

    trump's frantically trying to suppress voting across the country... and especially trying to suppress Democrat-leaning areas

    Trump campaign sues in Nevada to stop Vegas-area vote count

    The president's designated head of the COVID-19 response team, having been contact with five members of his staff, is himself a traveling COVID-19 hotspot. And refuse to self-isolate but instead selfishly travels, risking the health and lives of all he and his staff come into contact with.

    You guys are not understanding the amount of black vote that has come out. 74% of eligible black voters in GA have already voted, 69% in NC, over 50% in SC. I don't understand why Trump picked a war against the black community after the George Floyd protest. Trump could have played that to his advantage and pushed the senate for tougher police laws and looked like a hero. He completely underestimated the black vote. He's getting absolutely slaughtered with the turnout.

    You guys can all thank the black vote when Biden gets elected in over a week. I hope to god Biden doesn't forget what they did for him and actually pass some laws that actually uplift the community. Blacks need free trade school, high education, criminal justice reform more than any other community and I hope that Biden doesn't just throw them a stimulus in thanks.

    Black and white women came together and destroyed Trumps election campaign.

    Trump has had so many opportunities handed to him this calendar year where a little bit of empathy and some well laid plans could have set him up to win by a landslide.

    And even when he came out of his COVID recovery, he could have scored points with understanding and humility, but he doubled down.

    Trump could have played lots of things to his advantage. Even a moderately decent response to Covid where we could look slightly better than other countries would have played ridiculously well, instead you had his chief of staff today saying they have zero plans to contain the virus as rates are starting to once again spike to the highest levels we've yet seen. Just even looking a little bit like a leader during the protests would have been good. Using his Covid diagnosis to make it seem like he had seen the light would have played well. Not acting like a child and constantly interrupting Biden during the first debate would have played well. Not holding superspreader event rallies would have played well to moderates and suburbanites that he is losing at a fast rate, even if it plays well to his hardcore supporters who'd vote for him no matter what.

    The fact of the matter is that the guy has horrible political instincts. This attracts some people to him for whatever reason, for his most hardcore supporters it's almost a positive. But he's lost many people he needed to keep to have a chance on November 3rd without voter suppression tactics or legal challenges.

    From Politico:

    Polls: Biden has the edge in Florida and North Carolina
    A third poll shows the Democratic nominee tied with President Donald Trump in Georgia.

    By DAVID COHEN

    10/25/2020 12:13 PM EDT
    Updated: 10/25/2020 12:30 PM EDT

    A trio of CBS News Battleground Tracker polls show Democratic nominee Joe Biden with a slight edge over President Donald Trump in three crucial Southeastern states.

    The polls show Biden and Trump dead even among likely voters in Georgia at 49 percent, but Biden with a 50-48 edge over Trump in Florida and a 51-47 advantage in North Carolina. Trump won all three of the states in 2016, which offer a total of 60 electoral votes between them.

    In all three states, a majority of those who had said they had already voted said they had voted for Biden: 55 percent in Georgia, and 61 percent in both Florida and North Carolina. The president had majority support among those who had yet to vote.

    The polls also looked at Senate races in Georgia and North Carolina. In Georgia, Republican Sen. David Perdue was 1 percentage point ahead of Democratic challenger Jon Ossoff, 47-46.

    Georgia, which is also holding a Senate special election, requires the winner of a Senate race to draw at least 50 percent of the vote or face a runoff election.

    In North Carolina, Democratic challenger Cal Cunningham remained ahead of Sen. Thom Tillis by a margin of 49 to 43 percent.

    Was really disheartened when Trump won in 2016 mainly because of common sense policies like universal healthcare would be delayed another 4 years. But maybe this what it takes for meaningful change. You have an absolute joke for one term and then once the blue wave is over you reap the reward.

    The country suffered greatly but I think we can at least get a public option. Which just like Medicare and SS once the idiots actually have it they will riot if you try to take it away.
