Biden campaign manager boasts of a 'far more expanded map' to the White House

Joe Biden’s campaign manager asserted Tuesday that the Democratic presidential nominee will have “multiple pathways” to the 270 Electoral College votes he will need to boot Donald Trump from the White House.

“I would say based on the stability of the race [and] the strong support the vice president has, that we maintain the same pathways and have seen an expanded footprint on states that are in play than we have seen in recent memory,” Jennifer O’Malley Dillon said in a POLITICO Playbook interview.

Pointing to traditionally red Arizona as one potential expansion of Biden’s electoral map she is “super bullish” on, O’Malley Dillon contended that the campaign is working to keep a number of different states in play come November to allow the campaign flexibility. She also pointed to the Democratic nominee’s fairly consistent leads in swing states like Florida, Pennsylvania, Wisconsin and Michigan, though some polls in those states have shown tighter races as of late.

While she conceded that the race has tightened over the past month or so, O’Malley Dillon insisted the campaign had expected what once was a commanding lead for Biden to shrink some, attributing the shift to this year’s electorate being more polarized than in 2016, with less of a pull toward third party candidates.

2. Trump has no path to win the Electoral College.

Forget the media blather about the possibilities; the MSM just wants viewers as November draws near.

Biden is ahead in Texas, Florida, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Indiana, Illinois, Wisconsin, and Minnesota. Without those states, Trump does not stand a chance.

3. We need every vote....

People should act like it's a one point race.

The last thing we need is for people to get disgusted and not vote because it won't matter. It will.

20. There are no undecideds this election.

The vast majority of voters have already made up their minds. There is no squishy center for Trump to siphon off votes. The polls are much more accurate this time. The media will manipulate the numbers to keep people interested, but the outcome is Joe Biden being the next President.

All we have to do is get out and vote.

6. The recent WI SC decision of 3-2 AGAINST delaying absentee ballot mailing IS A POSITIVE step forward

Denying the delay of mailing out ballots to allow Green Party latecomers names to be added to the ballots.

This 3-2 decision was possible because we elected a progressive to the court recently.

I have read with interest the stories about the (possible) connection of the Green Party and the republicans. I believe this is not the Green Party of years past and their agenda is not always Green. Their agenda (in some cases) now appears to serve as spoilers to bleed off votes for Democrats to assist republican vote tallies.

It sure looks like that is what they are trying to do in other states but their mission failed in Wisconsin.

Wisconsin Supreme Court rules Green Party presidential ticket is ineligible for state ballot
https://www.washingtonpost.com/politics/wisconsin-court-green-party/2020/09/14/cc0fd7fc-f685-11ea-be57-d00bb9bc632d_story.html

and then there is Texas

Texas Supreme Court rules 3 Green Party candidates should be added back to November ballot
Democrats successfully sued last month to remove from the ballot the Green Party nominees for U.S. Senate, Railroad Commission, and the 21st Congressional District.
