Biden +4 in MN


Up from +3 in June. Also:

Despite the tightening race, Biden remains in the lead and other polls have found him with a more comfortable margin. On Sunday, a CBS News/YouGov poll found him leading Trump by 9 points, 50%-41%, among likely Minnesota voters and a New York Times/Sienna College poll released last week found him ahead by the same margin.

Overall, the polling site FiveThirtyEight finds Biden with a 7.6-point lead in its polling average – slightly higher than his national lead. RealClearPolitics' polling average has Biden up 8.8 points in the state.

Actually, the Supreme Court Just Gave Congress a Big Win

Trump might have won a short-term political battle. But Congress’ subpoena power is clearer than it ever was.

In the immediate aftermath of Thursday’s Supreme Court rulings on who has the right to access the president’s financial records, numerous commentators cast the decisions as a “split” that gave prosecutors a clear win but thwarted Congress’s ability to obtain Trump’s financial records. But while Trump might have won a short-term political battle by effectively managing to keep his records hidden until after the November election, there should be no confusion about who won on Thursday.

The 7-2 majority rejected Trump’s claim of absolute immunity for himself, his businesses and his children from state grand jury subpoenas and subpoenas from three congressional committees. Yes, the court did not give Congress the immediate and largely unconditional win that it handed prosecutors in New York. But that scorecard misses the bigger picture. Indeed, in some respects, Congress emerged with more clarity about its oversight powers, and how to enforce them, than it had before the Supreme Court weighed in.

CV-19 tracker page hacked?


Not fixed as of hitting enter to post this thread.

Italy 12,462 cases +2,313 today 827 total deaths +196 today

FFS, the news is getting worse every day. I thought yesterdays case totals seemed low.

Edit: source of numbers tabulated: https://www.worldometers.info/coronavirus/

About 600 new cases can be ascribed to the previous day's delay in reporting delay

Jeez, US COVID-19 cases jump over 38% today (+271)

Now at 975. There were 4 deaths, up to 30 total.

Edit: I updated the numbers to the total for the day on the worldometer site which uses GMT as a reference point.

Clint Eastwood Endorses Mike Bloomberg For President In WSJ Interview, Gives Props To #MeToo

Clint Eastwood Endorses Mike Bloomberg For President In WSJ Interview, Gives Props To #MeToo Movement

Clint Eastwood, who spoke at the 2012 Republican National Convention and endorsed Donald Trump in 2016, is apparently switching sides, endorsing Democratic presidential candidate Mike Bloomberg.

The 89-year-old actor/director was interviewed by the Wall Street Journal on a wide range of topics, but his most surprising was the political endorsement he handed out.

“The best thing we could do is just get Mike Bloomberg in there,” Eastwood said. He claimed to be a Libertarian who respected other ideas, but said he would like to see President Donald Trump act “in a more genteel way, without tweeting and calling people names.”



I hope this isn't some wingnut site, but I found this quite odd and unexpected after his moronic "empty chair" routine at the '12 RNC.
