Tesla’s market value has surpassed Exxon’s, a sign that investors are increasingly betting on a global energy transition away from fossil fuels

Think of all the decades and dollars the fossil fuel companies and auto companies fought the future and they still couldn’t stop it.

Evidently The Lincoln Project thought their first ad looked a little limp next to VoteVets’ so they upped the ante:

This seems excessively stupid...

Also there was a new poll out a couple of days ago I meant to post and supposedly Hickenlooper was killing Romanoff in the CO primary. I’ll see if I can dig that up.
She is an awful candidate, but the last poll in Kentucky had Trump up 14% and McGrath up 1%. And she had raised $40 million

The Colorado poll I saw had Hickenlooper up 30 points

Civiqs had a more recent poll showing her down 53-33 to McConnell. They had Booker down 52-38. Top lines show the incumbent clearing 50% easily so 99 times out of 100 she’s not winning that race.

But, like I said, she fundraises like a beast and may divert McConnell’s money from places like Iowa, Georgia, and Montana.

Joe Smith

#tblightning owner Jeff Vinik and wife Penny filed for a 90-day pause (abatement) in divorce proceedings, giving them some time to work on reconciling their marriage. Penny filed for divorce June 8.

Maybe they can realize it was the coronavirus stressing them out.

Jeff realized it’s cheaper to keep her.

Biden+10, 54-44, per Pew Research. They had Biden+2 in April.

This 8 point shift matches a lot of what we've seen from other high-quality polls, but there's one reason to take it even more seriously: it's based on a panel. So the change here isn't just due to sampling, but respondents changing their minds

Biden+12, 53-41 in Suffolk. This had been one of the president's better national live interview pollsters, including a Trump lead in Dec. and a positive approval rating one year ago

We've got three Dem polls this morning, all generally apocalyptic for the GOP
Even in TX-06 (and GOP+4 in the House race)
Biden+10 in IN-05 (and D+6 in the House)
Biden+2 in MO
A heavy grain of salt is in order for partisan polls. And the MO result is too far for me, but...

...Biden double-digit leads aren't outliers anymore. We're in uncharted territory and I think we should be pretty open-minded about what it would mean downballot.

Indeed. In the Suffolk poll...

Democrats up 51% to 37% on the congressional generic ballot in the same poll

Democrats +14 in the generic ballot means a second mini wave of House seat gains might be in the offing.
