To give you an idea of the extent of it some larger Democrat counties had 12 drop off locations, now theyíll be forced to remove 11 of them.

The rate of voter fraud? 0.00009%.

One of the biggest fears, if not the biggest fear, for the GOP in the future is the demographic shift happening in Texas which has turned a safe Republican State with a large number of electoral votes into a toss up. In the future itíll begin to lean Democrat. Even if the Democrats donít end up winning it Texas now being close and having so many electoral votes means the Republicans will need to spend large amounts of money in order to keep it, diverting resources away from other key swing states. Itís virtually impossible for Republicans to win without Texas.

Or they just keep up their blatant voter suppression campaign. Iím surprised the US is still considered a democracy.
One of the last things Noam Chomsky did before leaving MIT was commision a study to apply on behalf of the US to become a member of the EU.
They were rejected for several reasons including inability to comply to the Copenhagen Criteria specifically relating to human rights violations commited in Nicaragua.
The US is a democracy in name only.

trump and wife in quarantine after Hope Hicks tested positive and is unwell.
WH has the rapid 15 minute test and trump has been tested.
It is known for false positives so the PCR test was likely done as well and they are now waiting on results.
The results should be known tonight (1Oct). Takes 2 to 6 hours. The American people should be told the results - tonight. They need and deserve to know this information.
If positive: Contact tracing? The list will be long and starts with the VP.

Speaker of the House should load if not lock.

For those who live in the United States is there a palpable fear of what the next weeks portend or is everything ops normal so far? We have close friends in North Carolina and they give me a feeling of how it is there (Raleigh), but there seems to be a wide geographic representation here.

Could it be that those of us outside looking in are more concerned, for whatever reason, than those of you dealing with this every day?

What specifically are you looking for? No one answer (nor a couple of answers) can cover the concerns or lack of for a nation this physically large, diverse and populous. If one was to binge watch CNN, the end of the world is mere weeks away.

Well at least some states are doing what they're meant to.

In the crucial swing state of Michigan two right wing conspiracy theorists/internet trolls, one of them just 23 years old, have just been arrested on voter intimidation charges, with claims they ran a robocalling effort spreading fake conspiracy theories about mail in ballots targeting minorities in urban areas, obviously trying to suppress the Democratic vote.

Conservative Operatives Charged in Alleged Voter Suppression Scheme

But it took a Democratic Attorney General to stop them, wonder if a GOP AG would've done the same.

Just more evidence of team Trump using blatant fraud to try and win this election.

Hicks Covid Hiding Real Story

All this Hicks stuff is to hide the real story: Melanieís war on Christmas! In her own recorded words.

ďIím workingÖ my ass off on the Christmas stuff, that you know, who gives a **** about the Christmas stuff and decorations? But I need to do it, right?Ē she tells Wolkoff on the tape.
How will Fox cover this? They must be gearing up to damn this immigrant s -ing on Evangelicals.

Also. Trump has Covid.

Donald Trump tests positive for the coronavirus, so does Melania

You couldn’t make this up!! I am literally laughing uncontrollably at this! Reportedly the bleach injection is being prepared as we speak. Karma is a bitch!

“It’s going to disappear. One day, it’s like a miracle, it will disappear.”
Thoughts and prayers to the virus for being infected in such a hideous creature.

BIDEN

Masks -- masks make a big difference. His own head of the CDC said if everybody wore masks and social distancing between now and January, we'd probably save up to 100,000 lives. It matters,

TRUMP

And they've also said the opposite. They've also said the --

BIDEN

No serious person has said the opposite --

Trump with Covid, you could not make it up (there maybe a God), is this for sympathy vote, or as others have said to get out of future debates ? Could have interesting issues for his team with mandatory isolation, and indeed for US legislature. Any bets on a requested delay for the election from the Trump team due to their man being sick ?
Kind regards

My bet is.....

..... itíll still be held November 3rd (or more correctly last day of voting). Zero chance Democrats controlling the house agree to delay it. The 1864 election took place on the appointed day with the Civil War waging on down the road. Trump will have to settle for his COVID spreading rallies over Zoom. Which he will hate because having large adoring crowds cheer blindly at whatever hot air comes out of his big mouth is what he craves.

Trump with Covid, you could not make it up (there maybe a God), is this for sympathy vote,
No, this reminds voters that COVID still exists and is still infecting people which is opposite to Trump who is saying itís all going away and improving. But it could be a trigger for more GOP controlled state voter suppression tactics under the guise of keeping people safe from COVID.

This just in..

I will get over covid – and nobody gets over covid better than me, believe me – all my doctors and scientists say that I have the best immune system in the history of ever. Tremendous. And I will make Mexico pay for my medical bill. Mark my words.

Can they give the virus a vaccine against Trump? Poor little things, having to infect such a critter.

Putin has said Trump can use the Russian vaccine
