It's been four years since we've had a president who recognizes he is President to all citizens not just those who voted for him. Won't that be refreshing again? If you think so too it's easy, just vote for #BidenHarris2020 #Election2020

“We need to revive the spirit of bipartisanship in this country. I'm running as a proud Democrat, but I will govern as an American president."
— Joe Biden, at Gettysburg today

Read this whole election synopsis by the always fact driven @madrid_mike to just call balls and strikes . Use it as energy to run harder and through the tap to the finish in November, not as an excuse to let off the gas. (sorry for mixed metaphors) #BidenHarris2020 #Election2020

Donald Trumps campaign is hemorrhaging. His organization is in disarray. The battleground map is expanding. We can see the whites of their eyes. The once reliable GOP base has said enough is enough to Trump:

If you are in FL and not registered to vote you still have time! #Election2020

Florida extends the voting registration deadline until 7 p.m. after the online portal crashed on Monday....
State urging officials to keep offices open to accept applications in person as well

Remember while Democrats have been trying to get new rounds of COVID assistance out to states Republicans are somewhere between "absolutely nothing" and "just a few crumbs" instead. Vote remembering that #Election2020 #BidenHarris2020

"On Friday morning, leaders from the conservative groups Americans for Prosperity, R Street, Libre Initiative, and Heritage Action joined a conference call urging lawmakers to reject any agreement.”


We didn't talk about voting rights as another thing being adversely affected by the Republican court makeover and the seating of Barrett. Again, so much to unfuck when Democrats hopefully win WH and Senate in November. Vote to make it happen #VoteBlue2020 #Election2020

Oh no. SCOTUS just agreed to hear a case that the conservatives could use to end the Voting Rights Act as we know it.…


When was the last time Republicans made it easier rather than harder for eligible voters to vote? Worse, all we have is repeated attempts at making it harder or to obstruct it. Vote them all out so we can fix our democracy. #VoteBlue2020 #Election2020

Travis County (which includes Austin) population: 1.3M
Harris County (which includes Houston): 4.7M

Creating confusion, adding greater distance and delays to discourage voting in more liberal-leaning areas.

America has a Democratic Party and an Anti-Democratic Party.

Abbott is disgusting. There are stringent limits on absentee ballots and get this... polling places are specifically exempt from mask-wearing!

State level GOP potentially contributing to stealing electors in coordination with the President is now becoming a real thing. Houston we have a problem. Now the bar is PA has to be a Biden blowout, even then will the Trumpists honor it? #Election2020

It's just a model and we need to continue to work and get out and vote like we are underdogs but it was still heartening to see that Biden crosses 270 without dipping into competitive states. Still lots of work to do though.… #Election2020 #BidenHarris2020


JFC #2 for the day. He's been doing shit like this from day 1 treating tax money like *his* money. "The military should be thankful *I* gave them billions." That's not how leaders of democracies talk. That's how dictators talk. #BidenHarris2020 #Election2020

The Agriculture Department last week began mandating that millions of boxes of surplus food for needy families include a letter from President Donald Trump claiming credit for the program

JFC...reminder there is no bottom with Trumpists. Vote remembering that. #BidenHarris2020 #Election2020

Law enforcement officials "were directed to make public comments sympathetic to Kyle Rittenhouse" in internal DHS talking points, NBC reports.

One of these is that he "took his rifle to the scene of the rioting to help defend small business owners."

Thank you! #Election2020 #BidenHarris2020

Ex-Montana Gov. Marc Racicot, who chaired the RNC during the Bush administration, will vote for Joe Biden -

With all of this breaking Trump taxes news, more races getting closer, and more battlegrounds becoming apparent I figured @ProjectLincoln could use another donation. Keep up the good work everyone 😀. #Election2020

Quote of note:

"Global health emergencies like this lay bare the damage dome to social infrastructure over the years by stripping it bare of funding. The safety net for stuff like this has been fatally crippled in the U.S., people are just starting to realize it because the problems have been ignored and paper over by politicians for years. 'Don't pay attention to the man behind the curtain!'" - Paul Ferguson, Tacoma, Washington USA

Just a reminder that the models showing Sanders winning against Trumpl had youth vs. everyone else turn out at a record high level *and* that would have to come while there is record turn out in other demographics as well. That makes getting to that record differential even harder. The record high youth turn out in absolute terms hasn't materialized in any of the primaries yet and the differential is in worse shape because the record turn out is happening still in the other age demographics. #politics #uspol #election2020

What I was speaking about earlier... #politics #election2020 #coronaviris

In 2018 "...the Trump administration fired the government’s entire pandemic response chain of command, including the White House management infrastructure." #TrumpIncompetence

Yep. Can someone please give Trump a Double Dose of Ebola-Corona!!

Great article studying Sander's electability. TL;DR his apparent viability in polls today would need to be supported with unprecedented (by 6 percentage points) increase in youth voter turn out to prevent his campaign from getting swamped out by Trump and down ballot races getting swamped out too. #politics #Election2020
@Hank G AGREED!!

Let's see things stand after Super Tuesday! 😀
PS...while the main story is about Sanders. The analysis wasn't exclusively about him. For example Warren has a double whammy of a problem: "Warren appears to lose at least as many Republicans as Sanders, but does not seem to benefit from any compensating enthusiasm from young voters."

Yeah, I'm not convinced by assertions that Sanders (or anyone else) would beat Trump easily. What will be more comforting to me is if Sanders weathers the coming attacks well.

He hasn't face the sort of vetting and scrutiny that comes from being the front runner. Not, for example, the way Warren has. If Warren makes a come back, she'll be in a lot stronger position to take on Trump for the vetting.

Assuming Sanders takes the attacks and still comes out on top, he'll be in a lot stronger position against Trump. There is a LOT of stuff out there, and it's best for us to deplete this ammo before the Republicans get their turn.
Yes, @Hank G I have heard that podcast, I listened to it a few years back when I was working on a RPG project that was set in Ancient Rome. It is fantastically detailed and draws from a number of great scholarly sources.
