Expanding the court

Assuming Biden wins and the Dems get the Senate.....What Dem Senators (besides Menchin) will give us the biggest headaches and be our roadblock....I was actually surprised that we didn’t have any defectors other than him during Kavanaugh, even though it cost us done good ones (I am assuming that their would be some resistance in the house, but not enough to be a roadblock)

So it is essentially a given that Biden will win the popular vote

I think the republicans and Trump are conceding that point with all the ‘we aren’t a democracy, we are a republic” and similar rhetoric. Matter of fact, I don’t think a republican will ever win the popular vote in the foreseeable future.

That got me thinking, they love to claim that America is a ‘center right’ country or throw out the ‘silent majority’ nonsense. Those really can’t be true when they have lost the popular vote in 7 of the last 8 elections and about to be 8/9.

Why don't Democrats gerrymander the hell out of California

And get rid of people like Nunez and McCarthy? Now my question is rhetorical because I know they have some type of bipartisan redistricting commission, and truth be told that is what is needed in all states. But the blue states can’t play fair while republicans in red and purple states are stacking the deck in their favor.

Bernie stay home is trending

Essentially people on Twitter telling Bernie to not campaign for Biden....It’s either the Russians, the Trump campaign, or real idiot Bernie supporters trying to sow discord

Trump is running a base only campaign

With the Limbaugh and FoxNews interviews, it is obviously that he isn't even interested in trying to get "moderates.".....He is down on 50-40 if you average out the polls. That 40% is already his base, will this strategy work?

The US debt is now projected to be larger than the US economy

This will be the Republicans rallying cry when Biden is POTUS. "we can't afford these entitlement programs, we have to balance the budget"...Yep, they will be back to caring about the deficit.

These polls have been GREAT, but

We all know the race is probably more like 50%-45% in favor of Biden. So in a couple of weeks when the polls reflect the reality, then I am bracing myself for the inevitable "Trump is surging", "The race is tightening", "Biden is losing support among ____ demographic" MSM narrative.
