What a shame that the Treasonweasel Party has so greatly expanded their repertoire of dirty tricks, with all manner of election fraud, voter disenfranchisement, misinformation, dismantling the Postal Service, ad infinitum.

Not to mention the polls have changed their methodology since 2016. Looking good, just have to get it to the garage.

Biden will win the votes in a landslide. The question is how much cheating will steal them from his side.
 
2020-09-30 12:33:21 PM  
Factor in Trump stealing the election and Biden is probably behind by 2 or so.
 
2020-09-30 12:36:16 PM  
After that debate, my prediction has gone from 55 Biden-Trump 41 - to 58 Biden-Trump 38.


That being said, VOTE!

The problem you'll have with trying to steal the election is that we have such overwhelming numbers of voters that clearly want Biden that anything that's close and favors Trump will result in a civil war

Scorpitron is reduced to a thin red paste: Biden will win the votes in a landslide. The question is how much cheating will steal them from his side.


They'll cheat a few votes but they're the gang that couldn't shoot straight.  Look at how many of 'em are already in jail.

They're in jail after succeeding in getting a dementia addled foreign asset in to the White House.

NYT's idea of the "polling errors" in 2016 is excessively simplistic and vastly overestimates the effect

Whew, thank god I won't have to vote now.

Gods I hope you're right but be aware we are all in our own little echo chambers. There was the link earlier with some bigot who said "Everyone I know is a Trump supporter, I can't see him losing without cheating."
Things are likely to go sideways because Trump will bring into question the validity of the vote no matter the numbers.
 
2020-09-30 2:22:26 PM  
There will be some voter suppression.  But Trump's real weapon is lawsuits.  This has been his MO since he first got into real estate development. They are going to sue the hell out of any state that goes for Biden and delay this until either R leaning courts rule in favor of them or the American public gets tired of it dragging along and rolls over like a sad dog

Man, Lindsey Graham is looking like hammered shiat these days.

Good.
 
2020-09-30 2:22:32 PM  
So the good news is that latest polls indicate that Biden will beat Trump handily in an honest, open and fair election without massive voter fraud on an unprecedented scale.

Bad news is the GOP know this and are shameless and desperate enough to try literally any dirty trick they can come up with to steal the election.

It's already begun but it is only gonna get worse.

Unless the electoral math is completely solid against Trump, you can still expect anarchy in the week and a half it will take to count PA's mail-in ballots.

This is the type of thinking that caused 2016, but Biden doesn't seem to fall into.  The gang that can't shoot straight is national.  There isn't a "national election".  There are 50 elections that determine who goes to the electoral college.  Biden and co. really only have to make sure that the fix isn't in in Pennsylvania, Michigan, and Florida.  They'll also have to bother with a few other states, but the election will either be stolen or not in Pennsylvania (and if they have to steal Pennsylvania, they might also have to steal Florida.  Biden's margin is high enough to take that one as well).

Then we have to assume the worst and prepare for it. No matter how many "missing" ballots and Proud Boy rampages.

I agree with Joe. As I have said before, this is no time for that docile "When they go low, we go high" bullsh*t. This is a literal fight for Democracy and Freedom itself from a very obvious nazi takeover of our country.

We can'tr afford to "go high". We need to go "The Chicago Way".

"Polling errors". Yeah. Just like "polling errors" in Florida in 2000 and Ohio in 2004. And like Karl Rove expected to see in 2012.

In my neck of the woods, a lot of people are planning on voting 3rd party. The thing is, those people would have voted for Trump.  They're throwing their votes to Jorgenson instead. At least around here, the 3rd party is stealing from the Republicans, not Democrats.  I'm curious to see if that's a nationwide trend.
 
2020-09-30 3:17:35 PM  
Every single national poll I've ever seen puts Biden at least 8% up.  That's well beyond a 'polling error' (what the hell is a polling error anyway?  Something subby yanked out of his ass?) or 'margin or error'.

There wasn't even an error the last go around that I'll repeat for the 23409283402983402849028340923840928409​23840923840928340923840820934820394 time.  The final results matched the poll of polls by like .75 percent.  It was damn close.

Those were NOT polling errors. By believing this BS you are facilitating the theft of our republic.

Ever since the widespread adoption of E-Voting we have seen more and greater deviation from pre and exit polling to the point where exit polling now needs to be massaged in order to fit within the margin of error or pre-polling.

It's Bullshiat.

E-voting was designed TO BE HACKED and this consistent discrepancy in polling vs official results almost universally comes out in favor of the conservative candidate or issue. It is so common it's been referred to as the RED SHIFT.

If you really want to save the republic from this slow motion corporate takeover, then HAND Marked Paper Ballots Counted Publicly by reps of all interested parties, ONLY.

I was at a rental in bumble-fark Virginia two weeks ago... total Trump country. Saw three signs for Jo Jorgenson. Didn't even know who SHE was until then. I agree with your assessment. They are too proud to vote for Biden so they are making their statement as "never Trumpers" to the villagers.
