Doesn't matter. His crony in USPS is gutting it so that mail in ballots will be either lost, severely delayed or never sent out at all. Republicans generally vote in person and democrats are more likely to postal vote.

Add in other forms of voter suppression, gerrymandering, Biden being more visible/debates and you've got a very close race.

He's made a pretty big cock up of everything recently, so I don't see it being an easy win for him. He won on a tide of contrarian populism, but populism is fickle and you have to stay, you know, popular. It's very hard for Trump to convincingly claim he did anything but make America's existing problems worse, let alone Great Again.

That said I'm finding it hard to see the postal vote conspiracy theorising and such as anything but the Democrats pre-emptively deflecting the blame should they lose, instead of admitting it was a mistake to put a geriatric paedophile up against him.

That doesn't happen at that level based on how the Electoral College works. States don't lose and gain territory from each other readily. There are massive problems with the system that biases republican low pop states, but gerrymandering isn't one of them.

I think it's going to be terribly messy whatever the result. Biden wins and Trump may refuse to concede, blaming it on rigged postal votes.

Concession is a convenience, nothing more. When the electoral votes are counted in the House in January, a final result is declared and stands. If that count doesn't go in Trump's favour, he stops being President on January 20th and there's nothing he can do about it.

Biden did a competent job of not arguing with him; he wasn't brilliant, but he wasn't bad either - as the leader in the race, it is still very much his to lose. He came across as reliable, if a bit boring.

Trump made absolutely no attempt to persuade undecided people or those in the middle-ground - certainly an interesting election strategy, we'll soon find out soon whether it will work. Up until now, I've always taken the cursed timeline/Trump will nick it view - but he is starting to look a lot like a loser.

The last time the US had a presidential candidate worth voting for Neil Kinnock was having his speeches plagiarized. In a perverse sort of way it's entirely reasonable for Americans to tune out of their own politics.
I'm personally getting more optimistic about the prospects of what could get done if Biden wins, but for plenty of people it doesn't seem wrong for them to assess that their life is already terrible and that their choice in this election is between things getting worse quickly under Trump or getting worse slowly under Biden. If those are your options, why bother braving Coronavirus to vote or sending in a mail-in ballot that'll probably be shredded when Trump decides that he's not moving out?
Then there's the Trump voter side of the equation - those people with lives so shit that the best reason they can think to vote for a man is that he'll fuck up the lives of other people with shit lives who they don't like.

I'm not really sure how to wrap this up. Sparknotes version: Having reasonably sized groups of people with shit lives will fuck up your Democracy. It's not Biden's fault their lives are shit, but if he doesn't get them on the train to not-shit town you should bet all your money on the next insane clown the Republicans nominate.

Haven't you noticed how little changes between presidents?

America is a democracy in name only, you can argue about precisely why that is for hours, but you can't argue it's not true. Whether you're a Bill Hicks type who thinks the President is just a powerless puppet figurehead, or you believe in slightly more grounded reasons like the senate always fucking everything up and the system being built around preserving the 200 year old ideals of the Republic, nothing ever really changes.

I can't blame Americans for tuning out because they know it's all but hopeless anyway. They also still have a lot more of that "fuck it, who needs the gubmint anyway" attitude than we do over here, where all but the daftest freeman on the land types know the government has a huge impact on everyone's life.

To be fair, nothing really changes. You can have either party member as president, and it is always more or less the same. Might as well flip a coin before voting.

I don't understand the hate Trump gets. He is a bit loud and brash, but his policies are not that far out of step of what any other Republican president would do, or whatever a Democrat president would do.

My own view of it is, having visited the place many many times, and seen up close how poor the poor are (and how rich the rich are) there, is that it is difficult for us in the UK to understand the disparity between the rich and the poor in the US. Compared to us, they have no social security system whatsoever - witness last night Trump berating Biden for even suggesting better healthcare plans - they think the NHS is basically a communist idea. When you're poor or homeless in the US, you are FUCKED - there is no help; we complain about our system, but it's not until you see theirs up close that you realise how pretty brilliant much of our government and social support system is by comparison (note, I am not trying to defend ours). When you don't have healthcare, most hospitals won't even let you in the door.

They have an in-built mistrust of government, and on the face of it, their government and state structures do far far less for their citizens than ours does. I think this means that more people there just don't give the slightest fuck about who is in power, much as >>90555 says. We make the mistake of comparing it to our system.

Come off it, mate, Trump just told a far-right gang to "stand by" while he leans into the idea of the general election being stolen by voter fraud. I think every Republican and the lion's share of Democratic presidents were all scum, but the idea that Trump's no different and everything's the same as it ever was is a joke. I don't think politicians have done anything like that since the Klan was at it's zenith, let alone the president.

The "white nationalists" aren't anything new. Maybe he openly embraces them, but the fact is that Republics have always liked them, and are sure to throw them a bone every now and again. Would you classify the Birther movement, the Tea Part, QAnon, etc, as white nationalists? Because I would. These are all just the same thing calling themselves something else, which, at least the modern version of it, can be traced back to the "White Backlash" during Nixon's presidency. New versions of these groups always pop up every four or eight years since WW2.

In-fact, almost every republican president was a massive racist, and you can search for some of their racist quotes if you so wish. Nixon, and Reagan were massive racists. Lyndon B. Johnson would call civil rights legislation "nigger bills." Even Eisenhower and Roosevelt, heroes of WW2, were racists. The only difference is that Trump says the quiet parts very, very loudly.

Funny thing is - both Bush presidents don't have any sort of records of being overtly racist like every republican president. Although some of their policies were questionable, they come out looking good.

Give it ten years, and a new group will be born again. Trump is not that different to other republicans, in terms of his views, and his policies thus far. Which is why I think that he will win again.

Well that makes it all okay then. Nobody else can differentiate between wanting to do something and doing it. Openly regressing is something that should just be ignored, who cares where it leads?

You are right. These newer versions are less prone to lynching.

Read up on US History. Biden isn't any better. In fact, he was softly against desegregation, and didn't want his kids to grow up in a "racial jungle." This was the 1970s. This is modern times.

This isn't something new. These racist groups aren't something new. These aren't weird times we are living in. It is just a continuation. I hope it stops happening, but that will take decades, if not a century.

The trouble is that a big part of the reason Biden is favoured to win right now is the anti-Trump sentiment among Republicans. If Trump dies, that goes away, and a vote for the Republican ticket is a vote for the much more conventional Mike Pence. That'll be the insurance policy that Republicans in Congress (particularly the Senate) will have been counting on.

So, in pragmatic terms, which candidate is the best for Britain?

It seems a popular tune that a Biden win would signal that we would not be getting any significant trade priority and the democrats are especially plastic-paddy which could pose problems. Boris also seems to have a personal relationship with Trump that we'd lose with Biden - I'm sure Kim Jong-Un would feel the same.

>If Mr. Biden wins in November, Britain would face a president who opposed Brexit, would look out for the interests of Ireland in a post-Brexit Europe, and would have little motive to prioritize an Anglo-American trade deal. His former boss, President Barack Obama, once warned Britons that if they left the European Union, they would put themselves at the “back of the queue” in any trade talks with the United States.

Accepting of course that the only correct course of action is to crush the upstart rebels and exile the tyrannous regime to a footnote in a history Britain shall write.

It makes very little difference. We've never been an ally to the Yanks, only a vassal. We'll let them park their fighter jets here, we'll operate their nuclear early-warning radar, we'll give them a direct line to GCHQ, we'll follow them into whatever nonsense wars they start and we'll take any trade deal they offer us. Our relationship has hardly changed since 1917 and it's unlikely to change much in future.

The news this morning that many of his campaign staff are affected too, will throw his campaign out the window and dull many of his attack lines on Biden "hiding".

I briefly yesterday considered the idea that this could be faked and all part of some seven-dimensional chess game he is playing, but it's clear that there is nothing of the sort, and this is just karma rearing its ugly head. There is something delicious in the super spreader event probably being last Saturday where he appointed/announced the proposed replacement for Ruth Bader Ginsburg.

No way back in the campaign for him now. He has fucked it. I expect the next thing to be calls to delay the election if it gets bad, but I can't see the Democrats going for that in a million years.

I actually meant it the other way; why would they back down from an election now, all their Christmases have come at once.

The only narrative where Trump benefits from this is if he recovers (perfectly) in about seven days, and so do all the other infected people around him; particularly if he is being used as a guinea pig for experimental drugs. That's about the only way I can see Trump getting any "win" out of the current situation, and all other possible outcomes look terrible for him.

They didn't back down in this universe. The senate was majority Republican so Obama's nomination, one the senate leader was explicit he would not accept, was never going to be approved. The difference this time is that the Republicans control the Senate and Whitehouse which is the norm as far as SC nominations go aside from it being an election year.

The problem the nominee faces at the moment is if a few Republican senators agree that this should be decided after the election.

Given what we know about the nominee, and the value to the hard right in effectively having control of the court for a generation, here's how I see things playing out.

Underlying assumptions:
* The policy reasons for getting control of the court are unpopular. The majority of the public support gun control, abortion, campaign reform, voting rights, etc.
* The Republicans are going to lose big in the Senate. There are about a dozen opportunities for Democrats to gain seats, and the expectation is that they'll flip at least half of them. They need four to guarantee control, and they're odds-on to get at least that.
* Trump and Pence both survive (literally) until January. One of them dying changes the dynamic considerably, and if they both kick it then everything goes out the window.
* The various attempts at voter suppression do not prevail. I mean, I don't know how solid this one is, but ultimately the effects this could have are so wide-ranging as to make prediction practically impossible.

First decision point: Before or after the election.
If they do it before the election, they can argue their mandate, but they'll almost certainly be annihilated at the ballot box as the voters reject them. The Democrats might even hit 60 seats.

Next decision point: Proceed after the election or not.
If they wait until after the election, they can offer it up as an election pledge in the hope of increasing turnout from their more conservative supporters. But this presents them with the situation of trying to fill the seat after having lost their mandate to do so. The value of filling that seat might well outweigh the damage this could do to their careers.

Final decision point: Expanding the Court.
When the Democrats take control of Congress in January, if they consider that two of the seats were stolen and the other filled with a political operative, they may decide to introduce legislation expanding the Court to as many as 15. If a Democratic President then gets to replace Thomas and Alito and decides to follow Trump's lead and not maintain the balance, that's potentially an 11-4 split. They could potentially then prevent a Republican President from appointing justices by reducing the size of the Court, which in practice would mean that the next justices to leave would simply not be replaced.

Your analysis is excellent.

But one thing perhaps - how many senators were at the Rose Garden last Saturday, and part of the super spreading event? I believe so far the number is 3 positives (Mike Lee, Thom Tillis and Ron Johnson). Two of those are part of the Judicial committee, which I understand has to hold the confirmation hearing; if they're sick for the next few weeks, that could affect matters.

Otherwise agree with all you say, whether they force this through or not, they'll almost certainly lose Senate seats in the election, and pave the way for a Democrat-held legislature to wreak revenge and stuff the court with their own judges.

Having judges being voted on, and part of the political system seems very strange to us I think.

He was in a bad position before his stunts of the last seven days; he has made it worse. The only people who admire what he has said and done over the last week are his core base of voters - white males without a college degree, who are disproportionately represented on some bits of the internet, which you might also be reading - the rest of America is utterly horrified by it.

It was a close election, it is now into landslide territory. Trump isn't going to just squeeze a win like he did last time, he is going to lose badly, by a large margin.

I think it may be much closer than that. I mean, in a free and fair election, the Dems would sweep the board - 350 EV Presidency, 60-seat Senate, 100-seat House majority. But the GOP have been trying all sorts of fuckery to avoid that happening. Among the latest tactics is an order in Texas reducing the number of authorised locations for dropping off postal votes to one in each county - these are in addition to postboxes (which are also being taken away), but with the advantage that they bypass the postal system (which is currently in a stage of severe fuckulation).

Nate Silver called it 71/29 in favour of Clinton, but that's rather besides the point. Apart from professional gamblers, human beings have awful intuitions about statistics - we mentally round small probabilities to zero and large probabilities to one, but there is a world of difference between "overwhelmingly likely" and "absolutely certain".

Lads, what's your take on the potential for a red mirage and its after-effects? The idea is that as democrats are much more liable to postal vote, particularly in this election, it may initially be called for Trump only for it to later swing to Biden as those votes are tallied. Votes that Trump has spent months calling into question.



Both Biden and Trump are viewed as unlikely to concede in this scenario with extremists taking to the streets and more (see: planned kidnapping of Michigan's governor). The Supreme Court has previously ruled in contested elections with the most recent seeing its conservative majority refusing another recount during the Bush-Gore election but that could easily be called into question. The result would be at a minimum the tumbling of the US market and the loss of legitimacy in the US President.

I think if the polls get closer in distance, that scenario is a distinct possibility. The last hurdle for Biden is the debate tomorrow night. Unless he actually faints, throws up or falls over, he can just stand there, say nothing and let Trump rant. But while the polls are consistently showing a > 10% lead, time is running out for Trump and I think it will be quite clear cut on the night.

I don't think Trump will concede in any event, but I think the margin of his loss will be great enough that while there might be moaning, drama and extremism for 48 hours, it will pass.

I think you're underestimating the fanaticism of Trump's base and the volatility of America right now. I think it's highly likely to get extremely ugly in the red states, but (much like the BLM protests) I don't think that unrest will actually change anything of substance in D.C.

Most of the Republican establishment never wanted Trump and will be glad to see the back of him, which is why I think that a) the political transition will be noisy but straightforward and b) Trump's marginalised base will feel really, really marginalised. There will be riots, there might be an assassination or two, some bonkers militias will declare a free state and get killed in a gunfight with the feds, but it'll amount to nothing and it'll be mostly forgotten about by next summer.

I'm really not - and if it's a close election, we'll see ugliness abound. There is also the factor that Trump won't take a loss lying down, he has plenty of room over the interim three months to be spiteful, angry and to aggravate people into misbehaving. I just don't think it will be a close election. I think Trump knows that too, which is why we're seeing him so angry this week.

It was very interesting to see him at the campaign headquarters earlier, particularly the point where he said he didn't like losing. I've a theory that in defeat, he'll look more human and more likeable than we've seen in the past four years.

The coverage on the Beeb is the most openly classist, racist and ultimately braindead shit I've seen in my life.

Looking interesting. Trump appears to be narrowly winning some key states, but postal votes take longer to count. We may well end up in a situation where Trump can proclaim 'victory', be scuppered at the last moment by postal votes and then claim skulduggery about the number of votes that didn't occur in person. It will be interesting times indeed if he refuses to accept defeat.

I am quite enjoying this nailbiter of an election. The trajectory and the direction the vote count is headed towards is clear, it's just fun to watch the wheels come off for Trump, even if it is doing damage to America's democracy as a whole.

On the other hand, their democratic system will recover even from the lowest blows now dealt out by Trump. It has survived civil war, assassinations, and successful impeachments. But Trump himself will not survive. He will go down in history as a failed one-term President, the first one-term President at all in 28 years, and as one of the most sore losers of all time, with a demeanour that is the stuff of ousted third-world despots.

I one hundred percent think the whole family will pivot to the media and try and open their own Fox News clone - that's their only future. Trump Sr will end up like Alex Jones / Rush Limbaugh with a TV/radio station that millions of people watch, listen to, in an attempt to "set the agenda".

Politically, no - like >>91228 I am really enjoying this week and the slow torture of Trump as he goes down - he deserves to fail publicly and slowly like this.

There are three interesting parts left - the bit where he attempts to pardon a load of people (Snowden? Assange?), the bit where the rest of the Republican party pretends they weren't complicit, were against him all along - and then the closing part in January where all the outstanding tax, fraud and spying cases comes to some kind of coda and some of them end up in court. I actually think Biden will try to keep a lid on that stuff, rather than let people be vengeful - it will just go on for too long, but who knows what evidence they actually have around that - we'll find out soon.

Curiously, Fox News called states for Biden on Tuesday night and Wednesday where the count was far from over and Trump still had a realistic chance of claiming them.

Fox News could be jumping ship on Trump right now, and cut its losses. No point still rooting for somebody who is so clearly losing, with his chances of turning the election around again dwindling by the minute. Fox News may be a reactionary fake news network that likes to skew facts to suit its agenda, but they probably also don't want to go down with him.

If he's lucky, Trump will get some sort of regular TV show where he gets to lash out at the corrupt voting system and how he was defrauded of a second term. And he will have an audience for that. As scary as that sounds, one of my friends stateside told me yesterday that there are actually people in the U.S. right now, and not just a few, who honestly believe that the country is in the middle of a large-scale voter fraud where Democrats are printing ever-new fake mail-in ballots until the numbers fit.

The logistics of something like that would no doubt be staggering if it were actually true, and they would be on par with the alleged Moon Hoax, where hundreds of thousands of government employees would have had to be committed to the lie, with not a single person blowing the whistle and exposing the conspiracy with hard evidence.

Murrikins can truly be a thick people. Not all of them, mind, but they seem to have a disproportionate share of true believer syndrome among their population.

The reason this won't fly in the courts, or even in the court of public opinion is that Georgia is entirely run by Republicans - and Arizona, the secretary of state is a Republican. Seems like he is about to lose in both those places, and it seems difficult to fit this lunatic narrative, when those states are run by your own party.

Trump is poison among the white male demographic who make up the majority of registered voters and families tend to vote together. I know the media has painted white men as the greatest danger to democracy in recent years, but he hasn't done anything he said he would do in his first term and funnily enough, people have noticed. That 5% drop in support is what has done this.

On the other side of the white male coin, you can even see it on the other place's /pol/, the fascists didn't vote for Trump... they voted for accelerationism (Biden), because they want more tensions among rural white communities and a fucking race war. It's why they are currently acting shocked that rural areas are being overruled by the cities which have a higher population density and claiming it's a travesty of democracy.

They are also latching onto the fact Trump is claiming corruption (with no evidence) to stoke that fire on social media.

We're through the looking glass here, but not in the way you think.

It's far too early to make any sort of statement about demographics at this election. The exit polls are not an accurate representation of the electorate, for reasons thoroughly elucidated previously.

We don't even know for certain that Trump has lost (although it is overwhelmingly likely at this stage) and won't have any insight into why for many weeks.

If I was a betting man, I would put money on Trump actually losing even more votes after all the recounts and court actions he's trying to force, as a result of Republican voters who've voted by mail and in-person just like he told them to do.

>>91257
This is absolute horseshite.
Maybe a tiny number of fascists and right-wingers voted for Biden to stir the pot but that's not what's losing him states. Trump is probably losing mainly due to the record-high turnout which is likely millions of people who don't normally bother to vote have decided that they need to get rid of Trump. He probably has lost a lot of moderate swing voters, but there's no evidence that this is solely white males who are upset about broken promises, its just people who voted for him in 2016 with a "whats the worst that could happen" attitude.

A few disconnected, or maybe connected, ruminations I've had on it all today.

Americans, generally, like the idea of America as a global superpower. They like their secret services and drones and troops interfering with international business because they're America, the land of the free, and they're the good guys. Trump has been too much of an isolationist- If he was a Russian asset, as the conspiracies allege, Americans are pissed about it not for the reasons hand-wringers in the Graun would have you believe, but because it undermines their position as the global Billy Big Bollocks. That free and democratic election in Bolivia or wherever it was last month wouldn't have slipped past a Biden administration's watch.

Trump was always something of a protest vote, and the fact he was up against Hilary probably did more for his success than anything else. The fact Biden is such a weak candidate but still fairly easily walked the election (touch wood) proves this in my opinion. All the Democrats had to do was field someone who's agenda doesn't entirely consist of weird online liberal talking points, and we might never have ended up here. It's safe to say that the people who voted MAGA would have had no objections in principle to Hilary starting world war three, they just wouldn't have liked the person doing it.

From the figures I have seen, there seems to be very little income/class distinction between party voters. Lower income does skew towards the Democrats, but only just barely. Depending which side you look at it from, either the total absence of class consciousness in American society, or the lack of material distinction between economic outcomes either party achieves when in power, goes a long way to explaining why American politics is almost entirely about feelings and vague slogans. It might be against a working class (or black as they seem to like to call them) voter's interest to vote for Republican, but conversely that must mean the opposition party is doing a very poor job of offering an alternative. This has a strong parallel to the UK's recent political landscape. The logic those voters are using is flawed and they have been misled, but nevertheless, that is how they feel. Too often the liberal/left of the spectrum is unwilling to sincerely confront the matter.

It is a great shame that concepts like socialism are such a poisoned chalice in the United States. When you have people legitimately saying that they couldn't vote for as lukewarm of a centrist as Biden "because he's a socialist", something has gone wrong.

And yeah, what was all that about pardoning Assange and Snowden? Those men should be pardoned, was he just trying to outflank the Democrats by doing something actually good that they themselves would never do?

Addendum: This was actually going to be my main point but I forgot it by going off on tangents.

Trump is not a damaging figure who is destabilising American global power and damaging America's international reputation. That horse bolted over a decade ago. Trump is a symptom of the decline, not the cause. Lots of pundits have framed this election as a battle to save the idealistic vision of America from a despot, but America is already past the point of saviour. This is election is damage control at best.

I've watched more Fox News this past week than I ever have before1. It is fucking appalling. But it was noticable last night that the messaging had shifted to "Preserve the legacy, be proud of the achievements".

I think they'll want to be the first to call it - they went alone with the Arizona call, and I think the minute Biden gets something over a 30k vote lead in Pennsylvania, they'll do the same there.

It's obvious really. As >>91285 says, the one thing that Murdoch craves is relevancy - they have had that with Fox News/Trump the past four years, so they have to find a way to maintain that going forward - particularly, if as threatened, Trump launches some kind of pathetic competitor.

I want to believe they thought it was the Four Seasons hotel (I'm pretty sure Trump would have thought that when initially told) and then when they got there, thought they could style it out. I doubt we'll ever find out the truth.

Maybe they were pranked? Someone who booked the location has an excellent sense of humour? Or they're all just utter fuckwits.

Apparently Trump said it was going to be at the Four Seasons and tweeted that out, without bothering to wait to see if it was available, and rather than flip-flop like he's done already they found another place called "Four Seasons" and made out like it was the plan the whole time. No idea if they even booked it or just showed up at the place (which would have been closed at the time) and set up.
