Shhh.....the democratic plan called, "Let Trump Speak" is working. Do not let them in on it.

Interesting graphic of where Trump increased (green) and decreased (grey) spending last week.* He can't win without Florida, so yeah, makes sense. And North Carolina is important. Nebraska, Georgia and Iowa are in the bag but he increased spending in two of them for some reason. He made appearances in MI, WI, NV, PA and I think Ohio, so it makes sense to cut weekly spending there, but the cut in Ohio was pretty severe for a state that's competitive.

But he doesn't stand a chance of winning any of DC's three whole electoral votes, so spending even more money on the "audience of one" says an awful lot about his campaign's priorities. And I wouldn't be surprised if it's all on Fox and OAN in time slots when he's likely to be watching.

* PAC spending not included.

He needs FL to be viable. His path gets much more difficult if he loses there.

He is having to put more resources than I am sure he would have liked with Bloomberg committing $100M.

Same chart for Biden. Spending where there's a contest. Except for Nebraska and Alabama. :eh?:

Nada for his own eyes.

Trump is up by less than 2pts in Texas and Georgia. I need to see more of Stacy Abrams and the Castro Brothers on the Stump.

And the margin of error is generally +/- 3.

The NY Times is reporting that a major deal to lower drug prices fell apart after White House insisted drug makers pay to send millions of $100 cash cards to seniors before November — “Trump Cards,” some in the industry called them.

I believe TX still goes for Trump. But he may have to spend more there than he would have liked. Which helps Biden take other states like AZ and NC.

I couldn't imagine drug companies going along with that. Or being able to. Or it being legal. Or....

I saw it pointed out that the Senate GOP's rush to get a Justice seated says they don't expect Trump or Collins, Gardner or McSally to win. Same with Pence's saying we need the seat filled "in case" the election is contested.

Should we tell him?

Shamelessly fake, Tommy. It was an online Q&A and he was looking at the computer screen.

This is funny. Trump supporters keep trying to make it look like Biden is not mentally sound. When even Fox News finds the majority of Americans believe it is Trump who is the one lacking cognition.

"Get rid of the ballots and you'll have a very peaceful — there won't be a transfer, frankly, there'll be a continuation. The ballots are out of control. You know it. "

At least we are past the pretense of a democratic process.

That statement should be grounds for removal via the 25th Amendment.

What is the point of having it if it is never used when the need is obvious?

You are correct. I just saw a longer version of the clip and he was talking to people on a screen. Will you delete the post for me.
