    I’m assuming this isn’t a good poll. Alaska can’t be close can it?

    I don't know why people think Trump doesn't care about anything. it's specifically why I said the stress of the job is undoubtedly hurting him, just not via the same ways it hurts other presidents. if Obama breathes, Trump is up at 3 AM firing off tweets, that's incredibly unhealthy. I said it earlier but I really think if Obama got on TV for like 30 seconds a day to dunk on Trump like he did at the DNC then Trump would be dead in a month because Trump absolutely shits himself with rage when Obama talks about him. Trump is not some unfeeling monster, he just cares about dumb shit that we don't but the stuff he cares about he cares a lot. the dude is angry and unhappy most everywhere he goes and that's been said to be the case basically from day one when he realized being president isn't what he thought it was going to be, that stuff will absolutely wear on him physically.

    It’s a Democrat pollster, but this still is the closest Alaska has been in a generation or more.

    They have the longest streak voting R in the country (tied), every election since 1964.

    I actually think she's kind of a chicken-shit, she had the opportunity to correctly force counties to use paper only ballots in 2018 given how insecure and inauditable the last voting machines were but decided there just wouldn't be enough time. This is still better than nothing, but I don't trust the new machines either.

    Biden is going to bring up something completely relevant and corrupt and Trump is gonna interrupt and go “no you you you” and it’ll appear to some that it’s a gotcha comeback.

    Biden needs a couple “alright listen, Jack” moments to humiliate Trump in a few sentences where he just doesn’t know how to respond.

    The fact that pundits talk about how much a debate can mean and that it’s a performance event really underscores how fucking sad the electoral process is.

    Hit me with your funniest political ad quotes.

    I keep being fed this McSally ad. Picture a late 60's woman in her living room: "I've been reading about Mark Kelly. Turns out he's REAAALLLY liberal."

    I guess you have to watch it, the way she says it is so corny.

    If Biden is +9 or 10 in Pennsylvania and Wisconsin, there is a better than 50% chance a state like Texas goes blue.

    basically what the polls and forecasts have been saying since June. Well south of 50% for Texas, but its more likely Biden wins Texas than Trump wins the electoral college.

    Right now the closest contests are Ohio, Georgia, North Carolina. In other words - not tipping point states. Still month plus to go so ample time to fuck it up.

    Idk about that but I do know Trump really needs to flip one or PA, WI, or MI and PA looked like his best bet.

    Since I’m old enough to remember 2016, can you please be careful putting this out into the world?

    Hot take: He’s not completely wrong, the system is the real problem and needs to be fixed, but I would love to see white collar crimes taken seriously so he should punish those involved.

    White collar crimes should be punished the same as violent crimes, in my opinion. They devastate far more people than someone that murders one person, for example. Think of how many lives were ruined or significantly negatively effected during the subprime loan financial crisis.

    White collar crime cause significantly more damage. The affects of those crimes hurt thousands of people but mostly old, white dudes commit those crimes and systemic racism.

    that may be true but:

    One presidential election has gone blue since 1960
    One Democratic senator since 1981
    Zero Democratic House members since 1972

    I would cut Alaska a tiny bit of slack since they only get the one House rep but 24 terms in a row for the same guy makes it another thing entirely. Alaska may not be hillbilly red like the Deep South but they are very solidly red regardless.
