4. Looks like NC allows people to vote in person if they change their mind about voting

absentee. But unless these people plan to do that, they need to turn in their ballots ASAP.

5. The secret is in the unaffiliated voters and how they split out BUT

 

data suggest a great number of younger voters choose no party and are supporters of biden and democrats in a 3-1 scenario. If we had age demographic break out, we could have an idea on Bidens lead in EV going into Election Day.

7. Yup, unaffiliated voters put Trump over the top in 2016, and they're going to kick him out now

If this plays out as expected, there are lessons to be learned from that.
