Poll

When I consider the polls, I think that

Kid is right and the majority of national polls understate Trump's strength.
- 2 (25%)
Kid is wrong; the majority of national polls have Biden's strength about right.
- 2 (25%)
the polls are irrelevant and therefore so is Kid.
- 4 (50%)

There’s a bit about the last ditch ratfucking the misadministration has planned. It seems like they better start doing a better job at something or no one will want to play ball with them when it really counts.

"Look, to this point, unfortunately, we've handled this the same way our country has handled this," said Brewers manager Craig Counsell, whose team sat idle this past weekend instead of playing the Cardinals. "We put together these guidelines and protocols that were well-intentioned, and then we handed them off to 30 individual operators, i.e., states, and asked them to do their best.

"Adherence to a set of protocols and suggestions and trying to get it right has just not gone well. It just hasn't gone well. And it's because this virus is an incredible, difficult opponent. It's put us behind the eight ball.

"I desperately want to play and finish the season. It's so important for so many people in so many places. But it's not going well right now. It's not."

That was a good read.   If the claims it makes are true then Fauci has to take a lot of blame for the deaths.   
Not just useless but harmful, as Bo likes to say.

Sorry but it’s ok now for a presidential campaign to run other candidates in the same race in hopes of siphoning off votes from the real opposition?

Kanye’s own wife says he needs mental help. But let’s run him as a candidate in Wisconsin because those Black people will vote for him?

Incredibly insulting and dirty, from people who show us again and again that they despise Democracy.

So run a smart, genuine businessman to "siphon" from Trump

Beirut blast felt in Cyprus, 120 miles away.
2,700 tons of ammonium nitrate stored at port unsafely for 7 years.
Maintenance workers doing welding started a fire.

×××

2,700 tons?
A lot...not as much though as the 6,000 tons of it reportedly stored 100km north of Sydney in coastal city of Newcastle...3km from the CBD.
WHAT?
Apparently a man Mr Craig has been warning about the dangers if it for years and years.
No one in govt has listened.

That would put ONE in the race.

But no, the thing would be to run a smart white supremacist.

75th anniversary of atomic bomb dropped on Hiroshima.
Given the atrocities Japan committed in its desire to rule the world..my guess is that many people would've been rejoicing.

Anthony May, a retired ATF explosives investigator for the US government, said the color of the cloud after the blast suggests there may have been other compounds involved. And Robert Baer, a former CIA operative with extensive experience in the Middle East, said "that orange ball (of fire)" indicated possible military grade explosives.

Yeah because that is totally how campaigns should be run. Support (and probably finance) random candidates in an attempt to dilute as many votes as possible. Maybe a different one in every state!

Or alternatively you can run a campaign based on policies people want, getting people to vote for you. The way this democracy was supposed to work.

Now kiidcarter8 has to support the bomb theory because Trump said it was a bomb before he had any idea what he was talking about.

The truth is the truth.
I believe an explosives expert to the US govt is worth listening to.

Defense Secretary Mark Esper said Wednesday that "most believe" that the explosion in Beirut "was an accident, as reported," despite President Donald Trump's claim a day prior that it was an attack.

The US is "still getting information on what happened" in regard to the blast in the Lebanese capital, Esper said. US defense officials also told CNN there was no indication the explosion was an attack, despite Trump's assertion Tuesday.

Nothing like a “president” completely talking out of his ass regarding a deadly international incident.  Particularly in the Middle East. No risk stemming from volatility there, right?

Jesus the US is a joke right now.
