It's precious that you really believe McConnell might allow a more robust VRA or immigration reform to pass out of the Senate if he can help it.

There's a better chance of winged pig storm troopers taking flight from Bill Barr's ample backside, which is why Obama verbalized abolishing the filibuster.

Man with many jobs, Jared Kushner, reportedly axed a national testing plan in the early days of the pandemic because the hardest hit areas at the time were Democratic states and he thought they could get away with blaming the Governors of those states instead of the blame being put on the President.

Every death following that decision should be a manslaughter charge against him and whoever else signed off on it.

Sounds like the Biden campaign is floating Karen Bass as the selection to see how it flies with the progressives.

MSN poll based on 65K responses. 25% of respondents give Obama a D or F as a public speaker. There's your roughly a quarter of the population that is clearly racist and that would support Trump if he shot somebody. This is in context of a suckerTucker segment about why Obama is a "greasy politician" for his comments on VRA at Lewis' funeral.

How would you grade Barack Obama as a public speaker?
A 65%

B 5%

C 3%

D 3%

F 22%

Other / No opinion 2%

She puts Florida in jeopardy, so no. No. No no. No.

If Biden were to pick Bass when you have Harris, Warren, and Rice on the table, then maybe he is a bit brain-addled after all.

Seems like Trump's support in white, exurban districts in the upper Midwest may also be collapsing.

Quote:
#MI02 GE:
Huizenga (R-inc) 49% (+17)
Berghoef (D) 32%
.
Trump 42% (+2)
Biden 40%
.
James 40% (+2)
Peters 38%

Denno Research/@pubtheologian
(D) Internal Poll 7/8-11
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Michig...ional_district

This is a little sliver of Grand Rapids and everything to the west of it. Trump won this district by 18% in 2016, although the PVI of the district is R+9. So Biden is running 16% ahead of Clinton in this district and 7% ahead of the PVI.

If the Republicans are seeing anything similar on their polling, it probably explains why they're considering staying dark in Michigan.

Quote:
#MN01 GE:
Dan Feehan (D) 48% (+2)
Jim Hagedorn (R-inc) 46)
.
Biden 50% (+7)
Trump 43%

Victoria Research/@HouseMajPAC
(D) 7/19-23
http://files.www.thehousemajoritypac.com/research/MN-01
This is southern Minnesota on the border of Iowa running from Wisconsin to South Dakota. Trump won this district in 2016 by 14.9%. The PVI of this district is R+5. So Biden's running a staggering 21.9% ahead of Clinton in this district and 12% ahead of the PVI.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Minnes...ional_district

So these districts are similar in that Trump ran about 9-10 points ahead of their PVI's in 2016.

It'll be interesting to see if they both settle in the same spot of Biden running X% ahead of the district PVI in 2020, which currently is 7-12%, which does mirror Biden's spot in the national polls somewhat.

I get that they're butt hurt Harris said something mean about Biden in a debate, but they need to grow the fuck up. Bass has a big ass swing state negative and will be easy for the right to caricature.

Give me Harris, Demings, or Stacey Abrams before Bass or Rice. And, bear in mind, because Biden's older than dirt, whoever you pick better have the chops to run for the big job in 2024, so that probably narrows it to Harris, Abrams, and Rice, because Demings is a relative nobody.
