Robb was a prolific poster of polls who always included the dingbat option. :) GreenPartyVoter Aug 2020 #20

cheating, stealing and russian interference is probably a lot more severe than the term "hijinks" implies. I think there's no doubt Biden should win a landslide.

But I would NOT take that for granted. After all, Hillary Clinton won. But it was still stolen. I would not underestimate the depths of the dirty tricks that will be pulled between now and Nov 3rd.

I don’t trust Dump one bit. We have to be super vigilant and get out all the votes we can.

My late sister SmileyRose loved that option. I voted Robb for her. Bless you Robb.

My opinion for a Biden win is 50/50. There are too many cheat to win hijinks. I want to believe they will be caught and neutralized but Republicans left cheating behind them and turned traitor.

In a fair election we can't lose.

In a fair election, I feel confident. That's why we need to keep working over these next 70+ days to ensure it IS a fair election.

Steve Schale correctly tweeted on Wednesday that if Biden wins Florida we should know by 11 PM on November 3, and the election is all but over. Florida counts absentee ballots quickly and has them ready to go.

If Florida either looks shaky at 11 PM or going to Trump then we've got a huge sweat because it means the same polling error from 2016 likely applies everywhere, and we've got to sweep the midwest, and the optimistic states like Georgia and Texas are long gone.

I really think this is a one-state race, and I'm not saying that simply because I live in Florida. It is the ultimate swing state right now because at 36% conservatives it is just inside the 37% window where Democrats can and should win, without needing any type of huge national margin.

This seems reasonable. It's not in the bag yet. The closest states are WI, PA, MN, FL, AZ, NC, OH, GA, IA in order of best to worst chance of Biden carrying them.

Definitely not in the bag. Especially with all the dirty tricks.
