In 2016, 41% of all ballots were cast before election day.

According to: https://www.eac.gov/news/2017/06/29/newly-released-2016-election-administration-and-voting-survey-provides-snapshot

I might hasten a guess of close to 75% or 80% of votes will be cast early this election, based on the high turnout in early voting/mail in voting so far with 2.1 million people (at this point in 2016, I don't think we even reached a million). These votes will nearly all be counted before election day(minus the slow counting states of Mi, Wi and Pa), and reported when polls close. Needless to say, I'm feeling good about things right now

What percentage of votes do you believe will be cast before election day, 2020?

Is true justice blind?

Not speaking about how it is administered in the system we have, but rather what it should be. Or should true justice be wielded selectively? I'm legitimately curious.

"White privilege" does not mean white people should be treated with the same indecency as others.

It means we should likely be treating the other groups at the higher standard we generally see with whites. It seems too often that folks misconstrue this idea and advocate for mistreatment of folks simply because we don't like them, or because we know they had it easier than they would have if they were black. This thought process is not justice -it is vengeance. And if we truly aspire to achieve a fair system of justice then yes, we should call out the system when it is unjust -even if it is unjust to those we don't like (ie Parscale being tackled onto pavement completely unprovoked and inebriated).

Last night did biden agree not to declare victory until all votes are certified?

That seems silly if most votes are counted and a reasonable call can be made that night (ie if Biden wins NC, fl and oh it would be more than obvious he won -even if wi mi and pa are not mostly counted yet).

What was it called "free discussion"?

That wasn't a good idea. Also, the moderator should be able to turn their mics off.

I cannot watch this anymore.

Just sent another $15 to Joe Biden. After this deluge of misinformation from Trump, that last fundraising haul is going to come in very handy. Let's keep on giving, and shut this motherf*cker down.

"Show us your tax returns!" "You'll see it as soon as their finished."

So he hasn't done his taxes in 4 years?

Biden is incredible

All Trump knows how to do is be an asshole and interrupt and say nonsense. He is trying to do the debate like he does on Twitter: By debating himself. God he is stupid.

People can't be fooled by this shit.
