State Of The Race: Race Hinges On Four States

Did you stay up all night waiting? I didn’t bother, since I just knew we were not going to get a call. Democrats thought they were going to get a blowout. Not quite. I wonder why?

Economy Is By Far America’s Top Issue, CNN Exit Poll Shows

A plurality of Americans say that the economy is the top issue for their vote, according to a CNN exit poll released Tuesday night.

CNN said that 34 percent of voters named the economy as their top issue.

Racial inequality was a distant second with 21 percent. Coronvirus was third, with 18 percent. “Crime and Safety” and “Health Care Policy” each garnered 11 percent.

The economy was doing quite well before it was tanked by the Chinese originating COVID19, and Democratic governors and mayors did not help by going crazy with their lockdowns.

‘I Am Optimistic’: Biden Claims He Is ‘On Track’ To Win Election

Democratic Presidential nominee Joe Biden told a crowd of supporters Tuesday night that he believes that he is “on track” to win the presidential election.

“We feel good about where we are. We really do,” Biden told a crowd of supporters at his campaign headquarters in Wilmington, Delaware. “I am here to tell you tonight, we believe we’re on track to win this election.”

“We knew because of the unprecedented early vote and the mail-in vote, it was going to take a while” to know the results of the election, the former Vice President added. “We were going have to be patient until the hard work of tallying the votes is finished.”

In other words, he’s hoping cheat by mail comes through

Trump claims victory with many states still undeclared, hints at possible Supreme Court case

President Trump declared victory in multiple key battleground states early Wednesday, even though it remained unclear who had the votes to win, as Trump hinted the White House would push the Supreme Court to rule over disputed ballots, warning that a “very sad group of people” was trying to “disenfranchise” voters.

The president, speaking from the East Room of the White House, alongside first lady Melania Trump, Vice President Mike Pence and second lady Karen Pence, thanked his supporters and touted “record” turnout.

“I want to thank the American people for their tremendous support. Millions and millions of people voted for us tonight and a very sad group of people is trying to disenfranchise that group of people and we will not stand for it,” Trump said. “We won’t stand for it.”

Jen O’Malley Dillon, Joe Biden’s campaign manager, said in a statement that Trump “does not decide the outcome of this election. Joe Biden does not decide the outcome of this election. The American people decide the outcome of this election. And the democratic process must and will continue until its conclusion.”

So, both are claiming a win, and both are saying to keep patient. Though Trump isn’t as enthused with cheat by mail.

But, a number of key battleground states, including Pennsylvania, Wisconsin, Michigan, Georgia and North Carolina, were too close to call.

The big one is Pennsylvania. It has 20 electoral college votes. Arizona is trending Biden with Trump down 3.4% with 84% reporting. Trump can only afford to lose one of the above states. He has a slight lead in all but Wisconsin, where he is down .7% with 95% reporting.

Nevada, though, is also still in play, which is unusual. It’s real close, with Biden up just .6% with 75% reporting. It has 6 EC votes. Perhaps all those who were laid off/lost their jobs/lost their money who work in Las Vegas and Reno might lean towards Trump who wanted them open.

Trump added that he predicted a legal battle, and said he has “been saying this since the day I heard there would be tens of millions of ballots sent,” referring to the unprecedented scale of mail-in voting amid the coronavirus pandemic.

Team Biden is doing the same thing. Now it’s just a matter of how long it takes to count the mail ins, followed by suits from either side depending on how states go. Gird your loins, folks.

    It shouldn’t have even been this close. Biden is Senile. The Democrats will literally vote for anyone with a (D) next to their name.

  2. Est1950 says:

    The exit polling was horrendous. I mean it was off the charts bad. Fox NEWS was horrendous in their coverage. I mean Fox was so bad that Tucker Carlson was having a melt down over their coverage. They waited all night to call Texas and Ohio.

    The reason this was so close was simple.

    A world wide pandemic and the buck stops with Trump.
    A recession caused by the pandemic and democrats and the buck stops with Trump.

    College women hate Trump. I don’t blame them. He is a chauvinist pig, but he gets stuff done for the American people.

    The Main Stream Media put a total black out on anything Negative about Democrats.
    Silicon Valley spent 100’s of million’s of dollars trying to squelch the vote and unabashedly put over a billion dollars into house and senate races.

    Billionaires spent billions for Democrats.

    Despite all of this Trump could win this election.

    If he loses, Biden gets to sweep all the massive leftist corruption under the rug. Make it disappear, turn it radioactive as if it never existed.

    If Trump loses Biden will not stand up to China, the billionaires and Wall street want your jobs gone because they only care about money. They don’t care about steel workers in PA or fracking or whatever. They care about cheap labor to widen their profit margins and the fact the Democrats took all this Wall Street and Big Business money shows they are not the party of the working class any longer.

    The flip is complete. The Democrats have become the party of war, Wall Street, Silicon Valley and as Bernie Sanders put it, the Coastal Elites.

    And yet.

    Here Trump stands within a shout of winning the election.

    I agree with Est1950. It astounds me that this many people would vote for a corrupt, senile fool like Biden for president. What the hell has happened to America when voters can be convinced that voting for socialists and communists is better that voting for a gruff businessman who loves this country.

    This is the part where the truck loads of ballots appear just where the corrupt Democommies need them. The final indignity to try and overthrow our Republic is happening and nobody’s doing a thing to stop it.

      Kye,

      Note too that half the population cannot understand anyone voting for an uber-corrupt, dishonest, cruel, incompetent, unfit for command asshole like trump for president.

      We’ll have to agree to disagree unless you think we should start shooting at each other, as you keep saying.

      trump is not just gruff, and is not a good businessman.

      trump and his supporters are claiming that the perfectly legal early votes (by mail or dropped off) are fraudulent. trump even announced that his team is headed to the Supreme Court to stop counting all legitimate votes.

      Whether trump wins or loses, will we see right-wing death squads executing “communists”?

        Gropin’ Joe confused his granddaughter with his dead son.

        As for corrupt, “we have put together I think the most extensive and inclusive voter fraud organization in the history of American politics”.

        Right from the horse’s ass.

        We’ll have to agree to disagree unless you think we should start shooting at each other, as you keep saying.

        They aren’t boarding up Rodeo Drive and Broadway in fear of us.

        Trump is not just gruff, and is not a good businessman.

        How many billions do you have?

        Trump and his supporters are claiming that the perfectly legal early votes (by mail or dropped off) are fraudulent. trump even announced that his team is headed to the Supreme Court to stop counting all legitimate votes.

        You mean like the ballot box stolen in Philly? You mean like all the ballots that have been thrown away?

        And you’re just unhappy because ACB. Thank God for Cocaine Mitch.

        Whether Trump wins or loses, will we see right-wing death squads executing “communists”?

        The Lefty ones are already out there.

    Sore losers… Sore losers everywhere!!

    Much of what connies hold dear is just untrue.

  5. Hairy says:

    Lol
    Sore losers and insufferable winners
    And why have they stopped mentioning SOROS ?
    Isn’t he the demon that engineered this atrocity of an election ?
    Trump will soon have a lot more to worry about than being a one term President who had a virus named after him
    NY will be going after him for massive tax fraud and lying on mortgage applications
