Third Challenge Coming Up!

I'm feeling really optimistic about Saturday's South Carolina results. This will be the 3rd challenge Biden needs to meet in a convincing way to keep his campaign rolling forward. Polls indicate he'll win in SC. The question is the margin. We've read that the Trumpers have called on supporters to vote for Sanders, anything to screw the vote.

Will the MAGAs come out in substantial numbers, enough to affect the numbers?

We don't know. But I've read the Trumpers and Trumpettes are getting nervous about COVID-19, the way Trump and his gang of incompetents are handling the virus threat. Maybe it's sinking in that viruses have no political affiliation.

Whatever.

This I do know, the polls are fluid right now. In North Carolina, for instance, the early vote is down. The politicos on the ground claim it's because voters are waiting, they simply have not made up their minds. I'm predicting that if Biden blows out South Carolina, states like NC will cast their votes for Joe. Biden's numbers are back up in Florida (party-hearty for Castro is proving unpopular in the Sunshine State. Shocker). Texas also looks promising. As for the others? Biden has a good shot of racking up the southern sector and with a decisive win, more money will pour into campaign coffers equaling more ads and staff on the ground for future state-by-state competitions. The money has already started flowing since the last debate with Joe's strongest performance to date. At the moment, Bloomberg has stalled. His ads and his in-the-flesh debates are a 'can't compute' for many voters. That could change but right now it works to Biden's advantage. As for Sanders? He's getting whacked with is own personal history, the vetting that never happened in 2016.

We're definitely in turnaround country. Nothing is sure but possibility abounds.

Saturday night can't come quick enough!
