1. If independents are breaking like the polls suggest

Then Biden is up big time, about 60-40 with over half the votes cast.

2. Republican voting doesn't seem too far behind.

Seems like 49% of registered Republicans have voted. However unaffiliated voters - 42% of those have voted.

It's IMO all about turning out the Democrats and hoping the unaffiliated break our way.

3. Let's hope most of these are actually counted.

1million unaffiliated voters is crazy.

4. Not really!

North Carolina has more unaffiliated voters than those who are registered Republican. A lot of young voters (Generation Z) will not register with either party.

10. A lot of moderate Republicans left the GOP after the crazies took over the General Assembly in NC.

They were showing up at Moral Mondays saying " This isn't the Republican party I remember".

5. Unaffiliated doesn't mean undecided

In most states (including my state of Pennsylvania) you'll find that there are more people who are undeclared for either party, than there are registered as party members.

Among those unaffiliated, there are also a good number who don't bother to vote in normal times. But 2020 isn't normal and a lot of those people are taking the time to vote this year. What's bringing them out? I'll bet dollars to donuts, it's not because they love Chump.

11. They'll be counted

The NC Board of Elections as well as each individual county board are controlled by Democrats.

7. According to a CBS/YouGov poll

of people who have already voted, Biden is winning 8% of Republicans and 56% of independents in NC. If those numbers are accurate, Biden has about a 1 million vote lead so far in early voting.
