Thu Jul 30, 2020, 10:13 PM

Trump is at only 25% approval among independents, according to yesterday Reuters/Ipsos poll.

40% approval overall among the registered voters polled, but that's almost entirely from his Republican support.

With independent registered voters, it's 25% approval, 67% disapproval.

35. No one ever lost an election

underestimating the intelligence of the American people.

The last thing we need is complacency, we need to be on edge, HUNGRY, and on fullest alert until the Electoral College finalizes their vote. There's lots of time to snatch defeat from the jaws of victory.

Those who always said elections don't matter have been awakened. No better teacher than Trump to show that elections matter.

6. I live in a normally 65 pct Democratic township.

However, things are not normal anymore.

I am predicting we will go 80-85 pct Dem this election.

My gut feeling for Michigan is a 15-20 point swing to Dem.

11. Don't pay attention to the crowd insisting lower and lower

My goal is to keep the 538 number at 42% or lower on election day. That is a realistic goal. The ones asserting 30 or 35% don't know what they are talking about.

Republicans are never going to bail on Trump and Hispanics always have unusual loyalty to the incumbent. Those two factors alone prevent a drop. The numbers were saw a week or two ago were likely the bottom.

In particular, the occasional thread here with an anecdote of a Republican who voted Trump 2016 and now is switching to Biden are 100% meaningless. There are threads like that every cycle. Then the identical percentages show up in the exit poll.

10. Numbers Don't Quite Make Sense

Recent polls show 25% R, 31% D, 40% I
If this poll were spot on, Biden would be at 31+(40*2/3) or 57.67%
PINO would be at 25+(40/3) or 38.33%.
Have any polls showed Biden with a 20 point lead?

12. Translation: 25% of Independents are complete imbeciles.

I can understand Republicans. They will believe absolutely anything the GOP shits down their throats, all while applauding and squealing for seconds.

But I have really had it with so-called "independents". Have they been asleep for four years?

14. A lot of indies aren't really indie.....

They just don't want a party label. Especially republican these days. So a lot of republicans are just calling themselves indies to not get painted with the shity brush of truth.

They will still vote r in secret.

In reality, there are very few voters who will swing from candidate to candidate if they like their positions without caring what party they are in. More and more voters are party line voters regardless of their label..

16. For many years I was registered independent, but I voted blue in every election

I just didn't want to join the Democratic Party. It all changed in 2008 when I wanted to vote for Hillary for President, so I had to join the party and vote in the PA primary. I never regretted it and never looked back, but it took something really significant to get me off my butt and join. I have no doubts there are conservatives doing the same thing.

23. Dixiecrats and DINOs. Remember the Dem party was

more cultural conservative (especially in certain regions) and there's still vestiges of that, where such folks didn't change their registration but pretty much always vote Repub.

For example, the crazy lady in Kentucky that refused to let gays get married after the SCOTUS decision. She was a Democrat, but switched after the controversy.

24. And remember that among Independents a certain percentage are pretty much Republicans or Democrats

in how they regularly vote for one party. This is more true for republicans though.

so his approval among true independents (those who could vote for either party) is even lower.

Or most voters who dont vote party lines. There are a lot of those out there. We ignore them at our own peril.

The GOP along with Trump don't want to extend the $600 per week unemployment benefit. And many more will file unemployment in the weeks to follow. Anyone with good sense will not approve of a President who has allowed this pandemic to "dessimate" their livelyhood....
