  1. I dedicate this post to train lover @Conservative Elector 2 who should automatically like Joe Biden. He's campaigning via train and at train stops: Seems to be something he's done before:

  2. My sense is that people who support Donald Trump like to make baseless, gross generalisations about large groups of people.

  3. The President is secretly ecstatic about the arrival of the news. The normalization of France is paramount and this land could cement the United States as formidable forces with which to be reckoned if they could secure it. The President knows that it is the north, particlarly the Mid-Atlantic, who are the most in favor of expansion. This can and will be leveraged by the President. The administration will prepare to enter into negotiations to purchase the land, however. He informs his Secretary of State to ready a correspondence. We absolutely wish to preserve the slave trade, and I im

  5. I think it's either a head fake or an attempt to see if the campaign makes a difference, testing to see how solid that support it. However, I think that's a bad strategy. Trump could win by focusing only on 4 states -- FL, PA, OH, and NC, while just sending surrogate elsewhere. Biden needs to compete with him in FL, NC and PA, and focus on AZ and NV, so long as he's still holding major leads in WI and MI. If those states narrow, he should leave AZ and NV for WI and MI. I think any other strategy right now is just diversionary. Trump has a simpler easier map to work with, despite losing in the

  7. I haven’t regularly watched basketball since college. I was born in Dallas, so that’s my team. Lakers were always my backup team. Magic Johnson was my favorite players as a kid, followed by the now obscure Jerome Kersey and Moses Malone. Michael Jordan is that best basketball player in the post-Wilt Chamberlain era. Look at Chamberlain’s stats. He was a one person machine.

  17. I guess that's because of the things going on in MN, which make the state seem winnable. Don't forget a burning Minneapolis, a very weak Governor, Keith Ellison as AG, a Senator, who seems to be barely campaigning as mentioned by @Berg2036 despite being up for re-election and various new accusations against Rep. Omar.

  18. Probably pandering to working class folks in the rust belt. Many people up here (including my father, though luckily he got a better job) have been laid off from their jobs in the railroad within the past 5-10 years so it's still a recent memory (hence union voters in Ohio turned out for Trump more than non-union voters). My dad in specific worked for CSX. Not sure where Biden is campaigning as I haven't been following but if he's in OH, MI, PA, WI then it's a safe bet that's the reason. If hes in New England or something then I have no idea why he would do this.

  19. Interesting that he's going by train, which is slow and wastes a significant amount of time between campaigning destinations. Makes sense if you want to really focus on a limited geographical area.

  20. @admin_270 and also as a note, I mark something safe on my map once the average poll has someone at +7. I mark a state as likely once the average poll has some between +3 and +6.9. I mark a state as leans if it is at +2.9 or less and I also apply the Trump handicap, which means he can win a state on the map and still average -2.0 sometimes. I suspend these rules if I see a gradual trend that leads me to believe the state should be marked a different shade. With the exception of that one poll, MN doesn't look like it is in Trump's orbit, according to the grand majority of polls and polling aver

  23. When I looked at the voting in these counties for 2000, when making these maps. I used the same website for all of them. It marked the counties differently. I don't quite remember, but either the counties didn't exist (which, yes, they did, according to your search) or they were drawn differently in a way that doesn't allow them to relate to the 2004-2020 votes.

  25. Ya, my sense is that people with extended schooling (university degrees) tend not to be particularly well educated. They tend to believe all sorts of nonsense, have weak analytical skills, a poor sense of history, and so on. Of course there are exceptions to this, but one of the main functions of university in the West is indoctrination of the up and coming with certain political views and sensibilities. Very boring, IMHO, but also very important, of course. One big trend over the last 50 years is more and more males opting not to go to university, and instead going to trade schools.

  29. We have a branch of them in Canada (seemingly centred in Halifax, Nova Scotia, but almost certainly not limited to that city). They've been using the colonial Red Ensign (Canada's official flag before Lester B. Pearson adopted the current "Maple Leaf," flag in 1965) as a de facto symbol and rallying point, almost in emulation of far-right wing German Parties using flags from old German Empire of the Kaisers founded by Bismarck (though, in their case, it being illegal to publicly display Nazi symbolry in modern Germany guides their choice, as well).

  31. I've made a few grim prognoses. But I've never made the claim of actual, absolute knowledge of the future (prophecy), and I usually make my statements for cautionary purposes, not to stir up fear needlessly. Now, please apologize for your inappropriate conflation meant solely to insult me needlessly and baselessly.

  32. I rate this comedic laughing stock we call a presidential debate a 10/10, would recommend. In fact this comedic masterpiece could only be compared to such films as The Room. They aren't trying to be funny, they just are funny for the wrong reasons.

  33. Pretty much my train of thought. No one winning means Biden wins since Trump needs to get some serious movement in the polls to have a real chance.
