    I hate (and I do mean HATE) the trend of journalists, analysts, and commentators rushing to the closest television camera or website to make their Nostradamus-like forecast of what is going to happen on Election Day. When did the craft of journalism include the fine art of prognostication? (I mean, other than suggesting whether or not you should take the three points on the Lions at home this weekend... spoiler alert: Yes, you should.) I personally detest every smart guy and gal telling you what's about to happen on Election Day rather than analyzing what is actually happening right now and...
  • Trump's paths (plural!) to 270 electoral votes and victory

    American Thinker ^ | 10/29/2020 | James L. Swofford
    I recently argued that the toss-up states may be different from what media and pollsters present and what you think. Based my view from the 2016 results, I have the race at 231 electoral votes for President Trump, 183 electoral votes for Mr. Biden, and 124 electoral votes as toss-ups.   This implies that there are several paths to 270 electoral votes for a Trump victory. The Blue Wall Falls Again If, as in the last time, President Trump sweeps Michigan, Pennsylvania, and Wisconsin, he will have 277 electoral votes.  This is without Trump carrying Florida or blue wall holdout Minnesota.  In fact,...
  • Monmouth poll: Biden takes slim lead in Georgia, Ossoff-Perdue deadlocked

    The Monmouth University poll released Wednesday shows Democrats making recent gains in Georgia, with Joe Biden eking out a slim lead over President Donald Trump and Jon Ossoff knotted up against U.S. Sen. David Perdue. It’s also the latest poll that has Democrat Raphael Warnock as the clear front-runner in the chaotic special election for U.S. Sen. Kelly Loeffler’s seat – and it gives him a head-to-head lead over both Loeffler and U.S. Rep. Doug Collins in a likely Jan. 5 runoff.

    Joe Biden, the Democrat nominee, referred to himself as Sen. Kamala Harris’s (D-CA) “running mate” on Tuesday during a campaign swing through Georgia. The former vice president, who has aroused concerns over his fitness for the White House in recent weeks, made the remark to a group of supporters at a drive-in rally in Atlanta when introducing himself to the crowd. “My name is Joe Biden, I’m Jill Biden’s husband, and I’m Kamala’s running mate,” the former vice president said to cheers from the crowd. “Y’all, think I’m kidding, don’t you?”
  • Democrats falling short in swing states, early voting statistics show

    The Washington Times ^ | October 27, 2020 | Seth McLaughlin
    New early voting data showed Democrats failing to hit their mark in several battleground states, giving Trump campaign officials more reasons for optimism Tuesday as President Trump rallied voters in key Midwestern states and Democrat Joseph R. Biden made a play for traditionally red Georgia. In Florida, Iowa, North Carolina, Pennsylvania and Arizona, Democrats are falling short of their target of 70% of early votes cast either in-person or by mail. That’s the lead they hoped to build up to stave off an expected higher Republican turnout on Election Day.“The Democrats have not opened up a large enough lead in...

  • President Trump widens lead over Joe Biden in latest exclusive Channel 2 poll

    10/27/2020 11:30:16 AM PDT · by Midwesterner53 · 23 replies ^ | 10/23/20 | Justin Gray
    ATLANTA — An exclusive Channel 2 Action News/Landmark Communications poll shows President Donald Trump has expanded his lead in Georgia. The poll of 500 likely voters took place on Oct. 21, just before the final debate. It shows Trump leading 49% to former Vice President Joe Biden’s 45%. About 4% of Georgia voters remain undecided. That also falls within the poll’s margin of error, which is 4.4%. So it remains a statistical dead heat.

    Data Analyst Professor Bela Stantic says based on rigorous data analysis of millions of social media posts, he believes US President Donald Trump will win the US election, despite national polls suggesting Joe Biden will become president. "On September 18, I collected over four million tweets with 20 million likes and I did analysis and based on that analysis I concluded Trump is ahead and he will win with 270-280 seats. "Trump has 161 seats which are very firm and 19 which is sure, which brings him to 180. He, according to my analysis - which was on September 20...

  • Workers Exhaust Time-Off Options as Covid-19, Child-Care Issues Compound. After workers use up paid leave, they are left with few options

    Millions of workers have taken job leave this year because of Covid-19. With many schools still remote and case counts on the rise, many say they still need time off, but they have exhausted available leave or can’t afford to take it without full pay. And understanding what leave employees are entitled to remains a puzzle for many, employee-benefits experts say. Dreama James, who works at a fast-food restaurant in Cobb County, Ga., used 12 weeks of leave she was allowed under an emergency plan passed by Congress in March. She took eight weeks in the spring when her son’s...
  • Trump 'coyote' remark confuses Twitter, including Georgia state Democrat

    Fox News ^ | 10/24/20 | Brie Stimson
    When President Trump suggested at Thursday's presidential debate that the more than 500 migrant children unable to be reunited with their parents were brought to the border by "coyotes," many on social media were left confused. Trump supporters pounced on the mistake, mocking liberals who weren't up-to-date on border-area lingo. Many thought the president was talking about actual animals bringing children across the border -- rather than human smugglers, for whom "coyotes" is a slang term. (cut) Georgia state Rep. Dar'shun Kendrick, a Democrat, was among those who seemed to have been puzzled by the remark.

    Washington Free Beacon ^ | 10/22/2020 | Alex Nester
    A Democratic Georgia state legislator tweeted that she did not know that state laws determine minimum wage requirements across the country. "How does that even work?!" Georgia state Rep. Dar'shun (Klingon name?) Kendrick tweeted Thursday night after President Donald Trump said he prefers to leave minimum wage laws to individual states. Twenty-nine states, as well as four territories and Washington, D.C., have already implemented minimum wages higher than the federally-mandated $7.25 per hour. Georgia is one of 19 states that have not yet raised their hourly minimum pay. After Democratic nominee Joe Biden said he'd raise the federal minimum wage...

    Republicans are dinging Democratic Senate candidates for participating in fundraising events with North Carolina candidate Cal Cunningham after he admitted to an extramarital affair earlier this month. Online invites show that Cunningham was part of joint fundraising events on Oct. 8 and Oct. 11 with fellow Democrats including Georgia candidates Jon Ossoff and Raphael Warnock, Maine candidate Sara Gideon and Montana candidate Gov. Steve Bullock. "It's despicable that Jon Ossoff raised tens of thousands of dollars with Cal Cunningham, who is now facing accusations of whether he used campaign funds for the benefit of his extramarital relationship with the wife...

    Democratic Georgia Senate candidate Jon Ossoff announced Saturday that his campaign raised $1 million after Sen. David Perdue, R-Ga., appeared to mock the name of democratic vice-presidential candidate Kamala Harris at a rally Friday. "Kamala? Or Kamala? Kamal-mala-mala. I don't know. Whatever," Perdue repeated as he changed the intonation of her name at President Trump's rally in Macon, Ga. Perdue's campaign brushed off the mispronunciation as an accident.

    When coronavirus cases began surging across the South this summer, the region seemed destined for the same economic setback the Northeast suffered during the spring. But by the end of summer, the South’s economy remained largely unscathed from the wave of infections. Its unemployment rate had fallen to 6.9%, the lowest of any region in August. The number of people employed was 6% lower in August than in February, before most of the country locked down, compared with declines of 10.6% in the Northeast, 8.2% in the West and 7% in the Midwest. Consumers continued to spend at relatively high...

    Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden leads President Trump by 7 points in Georgia, according to a new poll. The latest Quinnipiac University survey finds Biden's support at 51 percent and Trump's at 44 percent, with 4 percent of respondents undecided. Biden led by only 3 points in the same poll in September, before the first presidential debate and Trump’s coronavirus diagnosis. Biden is now viewed favorably by 51 percent of Georgians, compared to 46 percent who view him negatively. Trump is underwater at 43 positive and 54 negative. Trump will campaign in Georgia, which last went for the Democratic nominee...
