Joe Biden builds 5-point lead over Donald Trump in red Texas as some voters sour on handling of virus

AUSTIN — Former Vice President Joe Biden has built a five-point lead over President Donald Trump in Texas as unease over Trump’s handling of the coronavirus pandemic mounts, a new Dallas Morning News/University of Texas at Tyler poll has found.

Biden had 46% support to Trump’s 41%. If the general election were held today, the outcome could depend on the 14% of voters who were undecided or named someone else.

Biden’s lead, which comes after he and Trump were tied 43%-43% in The News and UT-Tyler’s April survey, is significant, if barely: The poll, conducted June 29 through July 7, has a margin of error of plus or minus 2.24 percentage points.

1. ON one hand I wish the polls werent made public, Putin just sent 2 billion more to FB

to lie about Biden and appointed 500 more KGB agents to work over social media.

I call them KGB because if you call them GRU nobody hardly notices, thus the fucking REASON the name was changed.

Now I always used to say Putin changed the name, I dont know if that is true.

For observers, you can vote the party that is actually intentionally KILLING your family, or the one which isnt.

17. GRU and KGB (now FSB) are two different agencies

FSB is the Russian civil intelligence agency. This agency has had a LOT of different names; KGB is the most popular one. To translate to the US intel community, FSB would be what you get if you combined the CIA and FBI then gave them NSA's mission to go along with it.

GRU is the Russian military intelligence agency. It's always been called that. In the Good Old Days, the existence of this agency was the USSR's deepest secret. There's an old book written by a Soviet defector that describes the difference between joining the KGB and joining the GRU. In essence, anyone could join the KGB. They had a process for putting you into the best job for you, but if you wanted to be a KGB officer, you could do that. Joining the GRU was a little like joining the Men in Black, except they didn't burn off your fingerprints during inprocessing.

21. So FSB is what is new and replaced KGB, got it. Who did that, not Putin, before he was in a

position of power?

11. Oh there's plenty of us still alive in TX, and we're voting in droves. Look at these early voting

numbers (runoff election) for Williamson County alone:

2016 1,198
2018 6,297
2020 19,926

As you can see, early voting increased 10 times. The GOTV effort is paying off, at least in this county. With this kind of turnout TX may turn BLUE in November.

14. Awesome! Glad to hear it

I've heard that low turnout was a problem for Texas Dems for a long while so it's great to see it improving.

16. We can expect the turd to REALLY start pushing the "don't believe the polls" mantra soon.

That will allow Putin more leeway on changing votes and not have the resulting tallies seem so questionable.

Add that to the trumphumping USPS employees tampering with ballots so they can be challenged (I'm sure they will come up with a scheme), being overseen by his new postmaster general "fixer", Louis DeJoy, and they could actually get away with it.

We have to watch them like a hawk.

19. Amongst likely voters (Biden 48-43)

9% were undecided.

Some registered, unlikely to vote 'undecideds' are could not care less.

23. Trump should be highly worried right now

If Trump manages to flip Texas, the Republican National Committee will fuck his shit up. They will make sure there’s no pardon, and they’ll provide the federal investigators with enough dirt on him to put him away for a thousand years. Then they’ll help with the civil suits.

And why would they do this, you ask? Very few people are going to fill in the little oval next to Joe Biden then vote GOP the rest of the way down the ballot. There’s a good chance Trump will flip the Senate hard enough to make filibusters impossible, and the state legislatures and governor’s mansions will also be in danger.
