    I keep hearing it get mentioned in passing, but never the focus. And I think part of that is because he says so much stupid shit whereas Biden doesn't. Trump is chaos, Biden is professional.

    Which, as decisions are starting to go against Trump, it is looking like they are starting to have an effect. It won't ever be monumental, but it hopefully will be just enough.

    True. But the media needs this to be a horse race, and needs to make Biden comparable to Trump in some way.

    This. A 2% swing makes the race impossible for Trump(*). A 3% puts Florida in play. 5% we're talking Texas and maybe OH and IA.


    (*) I checked 270towin yesterday, and Trump has no path, as MI, WI, PA and VA are all alloted to Biden. The only states still polling as swing are NV(6), AZ (11) and GA(16), so even winning those 3, the GQP would fall short.

    Addendum: Donations are drying up for both Trump and the RNC, and several GQP state parties are broke, so their prospects are looking dimmer by the day. Yes, we cannot be complacent and we need to get out all the vote, but definetily I'd rather be in Biden's position than in Trump's gold clown shoes.

    ok with 7% in uncommitted is at 15%, do you think Biden will get less than 70%?

    According to this, uncommitted usually gets between 10-20% of the vote. But is that true? True for total between all parties, just Democrats, just republicans?

    The finals numbers must felt like a bust for the "Uncommitted" proponents. 11% voted in 2011 primary with Obama running. 13.3% is not exactly a smashing endorsement.
    Having said that, the Biden campaign needs to rebuild bridges with that segment of the base, the WH has well has to push harder for an acceptable and viable solution in the Israeli-Gaza conflict.

    The uncommitted vote is all sound and fury signifying nothing.

    I'll say it again, most of the Arab American voters are low key GOP people.

    Yglesias has had a lot of good points lately.

    Anyway, you can't take 95% of the pro Palestine movement seriously for a reason(s). One of which will make a lot of people howl.

    There is very little Biden can offer them that will satisfy them, the people calling him Genocide Biden are not going to change their minds.

    Biden can not stop the war, at most we can cut off aid to Israel, but that is not going to make Israel stop.


    Edit: quoted the wrong post, fixed.

    Yeah.. that's my biggest issue with the "Ceasefire now!" people. Especially the ones that say they are going to vote for Trump over Biden. Biden is working on a cease fire and, reportedly, is pretty close to getting that done. Trump would not work on a ceasefire and would give Israel free reign.
