GA Senate race - "The Senate follows the White House" - This is doable!!!

Folks, Richard Lui (Steve Kornacki's standin) on MSNBC was just talking about this:

Re: Ossoff/Perdue race: Only ~100K votes gap between the 2. Ossoff needs to close the gap and exceed this number to win.

Re: Warnock - this one is practically in the bag. Warnock lead by over 10 percentage points over the GOP opponent. With the 3rd candidate now out hopefully votes will go to Warnock.

Lui pointed out the fact that since 2012 the Senate follows the WH, an assuring fact but we know nothing's for sure. Won't be easy given we need to keep Obamacare, election security, voting rights act, and everything else. I'm thinking now that all other races are over Dems can throw their time & resources to help Ossoff & Warnock win. This is very doable.

3. OMG yes! massive participation of the young people vote in this general election is mindblowing. The

chickens have come home to roost!! So glad they are so woke and realize the importance of electing good leaders. We have 4 young adults in our family all voting age and they are so jazzed about Biden/Harris win.

Side note: from the clips of all the dancing in the streets in cities across the country, seems at least half are young folks between 15-29. KUDOS to our woke, liberal young people!!

4. The wind is definitely at our back right now.

In the regular election, Republican ratfuckers could count on, if Trump won, an attaboy from Trump while Bill Barr's DOJ took care of them. Now, even if they win, Trumpy has gone plumb out of the attaboy business and they're going to be on the shitlist of Biden's AG.

Kinda makes a snake oil peddler wanna pack up his wagon and go home.

5. Makes me wonder...

Why is one practically in the bag and the other isn't.

I guess there's 58 days for there to be a ground game and air-wave blitz.

7. Honestly, I can't see a lot of Doug Collins' votes going to Warnock....

Loeffler/Collins together outpolled Warnock, and without collins splitting the GOPher vote, I don't see Warnock having an advantage. How do we do this?

8. For one thing I strongly suspect that many R voters will be discouraged and not show up

And I'm even more certain that Democratic voters will be fired up.

10. McConnell will pull out all the stops to keep his senate majority

I believe it's doable but we have our work cut out for us.
