I wonder how likely the Dems are to getting control of the Senate?
538 says 75%.

Colorado and Arizona are safe bets.

Then there's Georgia x2, Maine, Iowa (not looking so good anymore), and North Carolina.

NC looks pretty good and at least one Georgia seat is likely. The GA special will probably head to a runoff.

Multiple paths.

Here's a fun vignette to the not-so-distant future. 
In 2022 the Class 3 senators up for re-election will include 12 current democrats and 20 current GOP. 

Obviously some may retire and a couple might be replaced (resignation/death) - but just as 2020 requires the GOP to play substantial defense, 2022 is also a very hard map for them.
Of the two who have already announced their retirement, both are GOP senators in purple states (Burr - N.C. and Toomey - PA).

Wanted to confirm you are still okay gaslighting people with whom you disagree

lol are you seriously chasing people throughout various threads accusing them of gaslighting based on a post three weeks ago?

It might be time to take a vacation.

wait, what?  I'm being chased?
There are some posts I simply cannot see.

Quite persistently, in fact.  Your blissful ignorance of it brings me some small joy in these convoluted times :)

Mind you... I am personally against all of these in some way, and I don't think they benefit our country in the manner that his supporters suppose they do (in particular things like ending the TPP/JCPOA and tariffs... but his supporters frequently point to these as way our country is "better" than it was in 2015.
Just want to point out that TPP failed because of EU street resistance, and it certainly was not good for the US - if by good you mean for the economy.

btw. just now the 3rd low flying plane in an hour just crossed above my head (old German-German border is used because low density of people), and I wonder if they train for something after your election...

Curious what you mean when you say that the TPP (Trans-Pacific Partnership) failed because of EU street resistence.  To my knowledge it never included any EU nations.

I'm referencing how Trump pulled out of the TPP by executive order in his first week of the presidency, less than a year after it was signed and before any of its provisions really took hold.

I like to imagine this as a scene in a western where you are a petticoated and bonnet wearing school marm who was caught dancing with someone for two reels in a row and now must marry due to rumors of tarnished virtue.

On the mountain I am from, if you tell someone they are off by nearly two orders of magnitude, a reputable person would have no problem demonstrating why, or admitting error.  You tell me if we’re on the same mountain

Can we spend less time on mountains and more time on freeways where armed Trump supporters are disrupting traffic and intimidating Biden campaign busses?

Sure. Do we know if anyone from the Biden campaign accused any of those trump supporters of making an arithmetic mistake? Maybe they were just demanding satisfaction?

I bet someone said something like "Trump cannot win the electoral college without Texas", and the domestic terrorists took offense, because obviously the Donald can win without Texas! MATH PEOPLE! - 538 electoral votes and Texas is only about 40 of them!

I was born during the Carter Presidency and lived in Texas from 1982-2002. The idea of Texas being in play is simply unthinkable to me. They haven't elected a Democrat state-wide since 1992.

Once per century levels of both evil and incompetence from the current president can change stuff that would under anything close to normal circumstances seem impossible. Already surpassed the number of votes in 2016 in Texas.

I doubt Texas will go for Biden, but wouldn't be completely shocked if it did.

The Democratic Party ground game seems particularly on point in Texas (Beto O'Rourke) and Georgia (Stacy Abrams) which may make them better bets than Florida.  I'm hoping a win for Biden in either or both, declared early, would put a serious dent in Trump's attempts to steal votes through the courts and dampen the spirits of his supporters for any shenanigans after polls close.

Joe Biden is promising to delay the vaccine and turn America into a prison state—locking you in your home while letting far-left rioters roam free. The Biden Lockdown will mean no school, no graduations, no weddings, no Thanksgiving, no Christmas, no Fourth of July, and...

The problem is that it is sticking with about 40% of the electorate.

It is domestic terrorism, using forceful means to interfere in the election.  Nazi brownshirts of 2020.

And yet, I’m pretty sure nothing happened to them. And it won’t because they’re Trump supporters in Texas, which is still tightly controlled by the GOP (who are also seeking to invalidate 100,000 ballots).. Imagine if staffers on Biden’s bus had opened fire. Or if the situation were reversed and a bunch of terrorists flying Biden-Harris flags had tried to run a bus off the road.

I’m starting to wonder if we should take down our Biden sign. Our neighbors down the street did yesterday. A couple more Trump signs have gone up, and I can’t assume that those neighbors aren’t in favor of partisan violence. Their cult leader is literally encouraging it. The sign is definitely coming down when I leave for the polls early Tuesday morning. We’re four blocks from a polling place and I don’t want any of Trump’s armed “poll watchers” deciding to retaliate while driving through the neighborhood.

That is exactly why we didn't put up a sign. We can't protect the house when we are away. And we don't want to attract trouble when our youngest is home alone schooling online. Our non-existent sign is unlikely to sway any voters. And we're firmly in a red state.

I had a MAGAtard caravan roll through my street today, about 6 or 7 pickups with flags honking horns and they circled a few times.  Of course I went out and flipped them off.  Then it started to rain, on their parade, LOL.
I don't live where such a thing accurs.
I always have wanted to blast the Star Wars Imperial March at the neonazi "concerned citizens" when they march down a street.

Put yourself in my shoes.  You put out a number, someone says with a ton of snark you are way off, you double check your math, seems to check out, and post asking for clarification, and it goes completely ignored.  Would you not feel aggrieved?

Given that a huge problem of the political climate is an orange clown in the White House who has no respect for the facts, I would think his most ardent opponents would not deliberately leave their own falsehoods lying around without clarification

That was a hurtful lie? Someone criticized your math, not your mom or your spouse or your kid.

I doubt you're going to get much satisfaction if your nemesis is ignoring you.

I was recalling four years ago when Donald Trump suddenly went silent on Twitter for more than a day before the election.

Why isn't he doing so this time? Last time, the silence was taken as a sign that he would lay aside his TV persona and become serious about living up to the office. I think it was a significant tie-breaker for many undecided voters (although I have never seen any polling to back up this belief).

Today, we know what we're getting. We know what he is. We know if that is acceptable to us.

After a Trump Rally in Ann Arbor, Michian, graffiti was found on six headstones in a Jewish cemetery, including "TRUMP!" and "MAGA!"

What kind of person decides to deface headstones?

Kids or adults acting like kids.

The cruelty is the point.

Or white supremacist Trump supporters who found an easy way to kill two birds with one stone - praise Trump AND piss off Jewish people.

Oh, believe me, we're already pissed off. But we won't be intimidated. For many Jews, like any other group in America, this is our home and we won't let some half-cocked wannabe Nazis chase us out. The spray paint will be washed off and these goons will be forgotten by history.

John Galt incarnate!

A caravan of flag-fluttering Trump partisans motored into a shopping mall parking lot in Marin City on Sunday morning. ... Marin City has had a strong African American presence since World War II, ...


Reportedly, some  of the Trump supporters called Marin City's Blacks  "nixxers."

I find the casual antisemitism on the internet these days to be really disturbing. I've never encountered this kind of behavior from Americans before. I bet Jewish Americans are really concerned by it right now.

It's concerning, but unfortunately nothing new.

Hey, if they are going to be hateful own it! Might as well let the world know what a piece of crap they are.

Agreed. The threats and acts of vandalism at our Temple have gone up, but they were never zero and we always had police presence there, with big increases during the High Holy Days (and this week actually).

Sorry to hear that- and I hope you all stay safe. In high school I worked as a janitor at a nearby temple and security was always top of mind. After one too many threats, they shelled out for traffic barriers, cameras, security guards on High Holy Days... the works. Mind you this was a decade ago, before Trump took office. It's since gotten worse.

Well, here we go.

https://www.washingtonpost.com/business/2020/11/03/election-ballot-delays-usps/

The U.S. Postal Service turned down a federal judge’s order late Tuesday afternoon to sweep mail processing facilities serving 15 states, saying instead it would stick to its own inspection schedule. The court order came after the agency disclosed that more than 300,000 ballots nationwide could not be traced.

For anyone who predicted he'd declare victory and claim fraud at the same time - you win.  We just endured his White House speech here in the office and he's claiming victory in states that have only scratched the surface of vote counting because he doesn't want anything else counted.

Yeah, it's a weird argument.

"We've already won...and we're taking it to the Supreme Court."


Edit: Foxnews (and Pence) didn't sink to Trump's level, thankfully.

He'd come off looking strange(r) if he'd spent the last year predicting widespread fraud and it didn't happen. He pretty much has to keep talking about it just to keep the story going.

Mind you... I am personally against all of these in some way, and I don't think they benefit our country in the manner that his supporters suppose they do (in particular things like ending the TPP/JCPOA and tariffs... but his supporters frequently point to these as way our country is "better" than it was in 2015.
Just want to point out that TPP failed because of EU street resistance, and it certainly was not good for the US - if by good you mean for the economy.

btw. just now the 3rd low flying plane in an hour just crossed above my head (old German-German border is used because low density of people), and I wonder if they train for something after your election...

I am pretty sure that TTIP didn't fail because of EU street resistance. Yes, there were huge protests against it (in Germany), but they would have pushed it through.
Let's just say I have insider information ;) The word used in parliament was "poisened". It was still awfully close, and the funny point is that the pro-TTIP people dug their own grave by continuing to lie. Like saying A won't come when A was clearly written in the documents.
The good old time when clear lies actually made people go against you LOL
