    Read something interesting back when Macron was elected in France, that their turnout for that election was roughly in the 70% range, and that was considered historically low for them. And when compared to our history it would be one of if not the highest turnout level

    One thing I’d like to understand regarding Trump improving with his non white share, does this actually mean he’s gaining votes or is turnout so much higher meaning that even though he’s gaining in % he’s still losing a larger number of total votes in this voter block.

    If I requested a mail in ballot, but threw it away (on accident), do I have to do anything extra to vote early in-person?

    I know some said you had to write void on your mail ballot, but I'm pretty sure I threw it away on accident.

    I wouldn’t be surprised to see it at 160M (would be the highest percent turnout since 1908).

    I just keep having to remind my self that this racist cock sucker won 2016 by about 70k votes across 3 states. Which is the political equivalent of throwing a Hail Mary from your 1 yard line with expiring and completing the fucking pass for a game winner.

    I get that but it’s the “I thought a business man could do well” when he’s a failed business man. Or the “I was fine with him until covid” when that negates the children in cages, racism, etc

    You’re 100% correct and it’s obvious to people who follow politics like we do.

    Im probably about to get dog piled, but for many people “it’s the economy stupid,” rings true and the fact is that pre-Covid I would venture to say a majority of Americans were financially better off than they were in 2016. Low unemployment, stocks, yada yada yada. They’re also not tuned in to the news cycle so failed businessman can be brushed off as an opposition attack vs. really digging in.

    I wish it were more complex, but I really believe it’s as simple as that.

    i'm not going to dogpile you

    and the economy is a factor

    but it's nowhere close to as reductive as you're trying to make it. and there's lots of research behind it!

    but yeah rich white guys love to vote for republicans and say it's because of the economy despite republicans not being better in aggregate

    when the real reasons tend to be less socially acceptable so they default to the fiscally conservative mantra

    before even getting into biden had sizable head to head leads pre-covid before he got into the post primary season and improved his favorables

    Thanks man!

    I understand there is a broader matrix and preferences can be complex - speaking as an Alabaman who has observed a fairly large social / familial network (N=maybe 75-100) and has seen the see-saw from 2008 to present day. I do think alot of positions (Roe v. Wade) fall by the wayside in the face of economic considerations for the middle 20%. There is also a reason for that phrase, it’s not a coincidence that incumbents who inherit good economies typically get re-elected

    Am I overstating by reducing it to just that? Yes. But directionally I think that’s pretty close

    They may as well say "we're cool with all the racism and shit, but it affects my life then it's problem." Fuck those people, I honestly hope the worst shit happens to them and the people they love.

    This country is so fucking racist it's infuriating.

    I don't think he's saying that the % is large or majority % but there is definitely a segment who pays zero attention to politics and is just "I still have my job and haven't been affected by much" (which is obviously a terrible way to go about it but it exists).

    My mom is pretty much this category (she did not vote for trump though because she just asks me what to do).

    oh I definitely agree lots of people are in the uninterested category, but the info on who they vote for doesn't differ dramatically from broad demographic trends

    they still have a lean, they grew up always voting X so don't pay attention but still default there and they also have partisan responses to how the economy is doing in polling, etc
