    Google searches for “change my vote” have spiked over the last several days, and Americans interested in adjusting their ballot are also searching for more information on Hunter Biden, one week after the Post’s exposés. More than 58.5 million have already cast their ballots, and searches for “change my vote” started trending over the last few days — linked to searches for “Hunter Biden,” according to Google Trends data. The biggest interest has come from Arizona, Tennessee and Virginia, all states that — like most of the US — only give residents one shot at the polls. But “in some...
  • NYC (Manhattan) Early Voting Report

    Self ^ | 10/24/2020 | Self
    Thought I'd report what I've observed in Manhattan today. Early voting started and at one particular location, on the Upper East Side, the line to vote has encircled the entire building from around 10 a.m. until now - so, two street and two avenue blocks, entirely. Yes, there is "social distancing" but this is unbelievable (someone said it takes about 5 hours to vote). On the assumption that the voting pattern for the neighborhood holds, one has to wonder what is motivating these people, their candidate (really??) or pure hatred of POTUS? In any event, I did not expect this.

    Traditionally, Democrats have been more likely to vote early and they have also been more likely to vote by mail.  This was certainly the case in 2016, but Hillary Clinton lost that election.So keep that in mind as we discuss the following numbers.Some states report the party affiliation of voters that return their ballots by mail, and Professor McDonald has been constantly updating that data on his website.  The following are the latest figures that we have for the key swing states of Florida, North Carolina, Iowa and Pennsylvania…FloridaDemocrats 904,217 returned ballotsRepublicans 519,876 returned ballotsMinor 20,093 returned ballotsNo Party Affiliation...

    The Day (Washington Post article) ^ | September 30, 2020 | Amy Gardner & Josh Hawsey
    "In North Carolina and Georgia, for instance, one in five voters who have already cast ballots didn't even vote in 2016, McDonald said. Mail ballot requests are up astronomically in dozens of states; the figure is 350% in Michigan, for instance, when compared to 2016. In North Carolina, 17 times more people have requested ballots than four years ago; in Wisconsin, requests were up by a factor of 12, according to internal RNC data. The fact that more Democrats have not just requested their ballots but have also turned them in is also a reversal of the trend in prior...

    CNN ^ | 02/29/2016 | Brianna Keilar
    In 1969, just a few years before Bernie Sanders first sought public office, he penned a number of columns on a variety of topics: sexuality -- including violent rape fantasies and the sexual development of children -- emotional links to cancer, foreign relations and the failures of traditional education. He rails against "conservative" education -- what he viewed as an ineffective and soulless learning environment where children must "sit still for 7 hours a day ... and raise their hands when they have to go to the bathroom." It was a theme he returned to repeatedly that year, denouncing authoritarian...

    Prophecy Questions blog ^ | May 8, 2018 | Charles S. Meek
    Futurists sometimes claim that preterism was invented in the middle ages by Luis Alcazar. That charge is very clearly false. Let’s take a look at what the early church thought about eschatology. We preterists argue that our views are completely consistent with Jesus and his disciples. That is, the ideas which are represented by preterists were the views of the New Testament writers themselves, who expected the fulfillment of all biblical prophecy to take place in their generation. So, we feel that we are in good company! But what about the church leaders after the original Apostles? Actually, there are...

    Early to Bed, Early to Rise, Work Like Hell and Advertise I’m sure there are many details of Internet advertising that I’m unaware of but I am aware that Internet access to me is important. Someone receives compensation for providing access to me. It is more important to sell me something but gaining access to me is the first step. It may only be worth pennies to have access to me but those pennies appear to be the force behind the Internet. The pros and cons of a border wall to assist the government in securing America’s border are in...

    Voters casting ballots early in Sarasota say Trump was a big factor in their vote this year Sarasota retiree Patricia Rardin doesn’t always vote in midterm elections. “It depends on the issues,” said the 66-year-old former medical transcriptionist after she cast her ballot early over the weekend. “This one was important. I want to get rid of the people who vote alongside Trump.” Rudy Fraccio used to vote for Democrats but now believes the party is too liberal. The 85-year-old Sarasota health care worker voted a straight Republican ticket over the weekend, in part to support President Donald Trump. “I...

    Early voting numbers from several key battleground states now show Republican voters turning out in far greater numbers than Democratic ones, signaling an initial GOP surge that may dull the prospects of a so-called "blue wave" on Nov. 6. Republican voters have taken the lead in turnout numbers in Georgia, Indiana, Montana, Texas, Tennessee, Florida and Arizona -- states that Fox News analyses show are the scenes of close and pivotal House, Senate and gubernatorial races. The results are most striking in Tennessee, where 63 percent of early voters are affiliated with the Republican Party, compared to only 30 percent...

    As we wind down this election, we begin to hear the familiar chime: The election is over and/or can be predicted because of what we see in the early vote. Don’t buy it. While we might be able to make some broad projections based upon early voting – maybe – we’re more likely to substitute our own judgments and arbitrary intuitions for actual results.
