    With the mail in ballots sent out over a week ago, I’d like to see biden visit North Carolina this week. Might already be in the cards but i think it’s important to be seen there in the next few days. He probably wants 1-2 days off before the First debate so it’s important that he is seen in all of the key battleground states before then. After the first debate you can reassess where things are and where to focus.

    This is a weird poll that Has Biden winning by 6 and Purdue up 7. It was done by Lieberman who’s going to be one of the people responsible for the special election runoff being between 2 republicans but still a very bizarre poll. I don’t see any scenario that Purdue could be running 13 points above trump.

    I dunno, politicos like Warnock, but he just isn't getting the traction folks thought he would. If the Dem field doesn't consolidate, that race could go to a Loeffler/Collins runoff.

    We are 7 weeks out from election. Biden needs to flip 38 electoral votes from 2016 to overcome Trump 306-Clinton 232.

    The most probable 2016 blue states to flip look fairly solid, Minnesota (10) and Nevada (6). New Hampshire (4) remains possible.

    2016 red states Michigan (16) and Wisconsin (10) look to flip.

    2016 red states Pennsylvania (20), Florida (29), Arizona (11), NC (15) and the NE2 (1) show blue polling.

    It would depend on when your state starts mailing them out. Here in VA they don’t start mailing them until Friday no matter when you request

    PA is polling bluer and is a much more traditionally blue state. I’ll be really surprised if NC flips in the end. Maybe next cycle after 4 more years of libs continuing to move to the area but Trump has been here 4 times in the last month and knows he has to hold it.

    That said, if NC goes Biden it’s likely part of a landslide victory and Cunningham is probably taking Tillis’ seat too.

    Genuine Question: Why is there such a push for mail in voting this year? Is it just because COVID and people not wanting to go into the polling place? I'm a likely Biden voter in SC and doing mail in voting has never even crossed my mind- i'm going to vote at the poll like normal?

    COVID and the concern about ballot security. Not sure how the ballots work in SC in-person, but in Georgia the printout you get from the touch screen machine is just a QR code, you don't even see your choices on it, so it's not auditable by a third party. A lot of states still don't even give you that.

    yes. Also because Republicans keep fucking over minorities by restricting voting locations and early voting hours

    Is there tracking or anything for the mail in ballot? Seems like even less secure vs in person since you wouldn't even know if they received and counted it?

    In Georgia yes, I mean if you trust the SoS website. It will show you when your ballot is going to be mailed to you and when it is accepted. Hoping to just turn mine into a drop box instead of using the mail after I fill it out.

    I should add that despite years of voter suppression/gerrymandering in NC we do have one of the stronger early voting/mail voting systems in the country. We were the first state to mail ballots out and have 14 (I think) spread out days of early voting that is universal from a location sense within your county, which is really nice. So all that I would think does make it possible for Biden to be more competitive in a high turnout election.

    Push in the past was in same vein as In-Person early voting. Trying to get people to go ahead and vote. Bank the turnout. Rather than chance it to long lines, weather, or changed minds on election day. Plus, Voting by Mail is free and can be done around work schedules.

    Push initially this year was Vote by Mail because it is more Socially Responsible in a Pandemic.

    Now given the USPS shenanigans, and high ballot rejection % in states not accustomed to Mail voting, its only Vote by Mail if youre 65+ or At-Risk; otherwise vote Early In-Person

    in Minnesota you can track your ballot online and whether it's accepted

    most states are required to reach out to you if its not accepted for whatever reason

    but yeah, olds love voting, covid makes standing in line or going indoors dangerous, mail is the best option for those folks

    I'm sure Harrison has been able to raise a decent amount of money running against Graham but it's fucking pathetic that Mcgrath got millions in an unwinnable race. The consultants are getting paid though so well done Chuck Schumer.

    If Harrison loses a very close race, dems will wonder if some of the $40+ million they wasted on McGrath could have won it. Time to cut her off and start really focusing attention on Harrison. I think he’s got a real shot. Not just because of this poll. He’s running a good race and he’s likable.
