Hillary plans to get out the "dad" vote

Here's the line up for Sunday night football:

What will be known by tonight? tomorrow night and Monday night about the election?

I assume that the HRC folks will know A LOT more about where things stand with respect to early voting across the 37 states and most importantly from critical swing states by tonight, tomorrow night and Monday night.

For those folks who are crunching numbers and putting out information into the twitter-sphere, what will we DU'ers likely know about trends. We already know the NV seems locked up for Hillary and Florida is trending our way. What I would like to know is what else do we know about Florida, North Carolina, Texas, Arizona...and other states.

I'm feeling relatively confident, but of course there are still those wonky polls out there and 538 out there that make us all frustrated and maybe a little nervous too.

Robby Mook: "NEW Coalition","We are up in FL by 170k", Latino vote increased 130%, AA turnout up 22%

Robby Mook is looking at the early voting numbers and sees record turnout, great early voting numbers for us, and a new coalition has emerged.

A Shudder Goes Down Republican Spines As Early Voting Reveals A New Clinton Coalition

n a conference call with reporters, Clinton campaign manager Robbie Mook announced an early voting turnout record. At least 40% of voters in battleground states are turning out early.

In Florida, more registered Democrats than Republicans have turned out to vote early or by mail. The Clinton camp believes that they are winning Florida by 170,000 ballots.


The word of the day is "firewall." My friends, can you say "firewall"?



Feel Good Article About Tim Kaine

Tim Kaineís former roommate (Charles Hirschhorn) took to Facebook to offer some fascinating background on our next Vice President:

Full Disclosure: My Roommate is Running for VP

Thirty-five years ago I shared a 4 bedroom rental house with two law students. I was working as an Assistant Movie Theater Manager in Boston, being paid $150 a week, which I believe was the federally mandated minimum salary you could pay someone and not have to pay them overtime. Anyway, the open bedroom in the attic was being held for a student returning from a year as a missionary in Honduras. I did not know him when he moved in, but now we all know him as the Democratic Candidate for Vice President, Tim Kaine.

Tim and I lived together that year and the following summer in Washington, DC. A wise man once told me that he and his roommate had an understanding: ďAs soon as one of us dies, the other will go out and get hit by a bus, because some secrets have to remain buriedÖĒ I feel the opposite. Eventually the media will find me, so I figured Iíll go ahead and offer a full disclosure of what I know about Tim. Here goes:

He does not like to clean the bathroom.

An interesting read: More Evidence That Hillary Is Up Big in Florida

This article isnít just about one poll.

In fact itís about more and more evidence Iíve found that has led me to believe we might be on the verge of some major earthquakes when it comes to actual voter behavior.

Still, letís start with the crazy new Florida poll and then work are way out from thereÖ

Last night, I wrote an article about a brand new bombshell Florida poll from TargetSmart, that showed Hillary Clinton up 8, and, more shockingly, Republican early voters breaking her way 28% of the time.

Needless to say, this was an eye-popping poll that made many of us sit up and take notice (some of us more skeptically than others).

But Iíve been very curious ever since. Digging a bit more into TargetSmart, Iím quite convinced now that theyíre a highly respected operation and are focused on cutting edge work that cannot be easily dismissed simply because they have a poll that looks to be an outlier.

What makes me say that we can be confident about TargetSmartís bonafides?



In light of all anticipating hurling major crap towards the dems and Hillary these last days

and a bunch of us holding our nose everytime we take a peek at Nate 538 -- I want hear all I can about:

early voting where you live...anecdotes, stories, informal and formal polling. I am particularly interested in hearing how it is going in any of swing states, including Ohio, Iowa, North Carolina, Nevada and Texas!

Let's keep posting on all the good work that is going out there!

Daily Kos: Great News! Florida is now starting to see a surge of African American and Hispanic earl

I know some folks are worrying, so this will be welcome news.

Folks in Florida are slowly, but surely, getting out to vote. We still have work to do, but this is great news from Steve Schale for Hillary and Team D!

Keep working. Keep making calls! If we do, we will win Florida and this election!
