Dear God, how can anyone still be undecided at this stage of the game? You're either going to vote to remove Trump from office and save America, or you're going to vote to keep him in office and destroy America as we know it. There is no middle ground here!
I'm sure there are people that know who they are voting for, but don't want to reveal it to a pollster, for whatever reason. So they say undecided instead.

A data bit.

See, now that scares me. Come election night, Trump is going to declare himself the winner, and he may well be, if the majority of votes that have been counted are in-person votes. Then he will do everything in his power to deny the remaining votes, all while screaming into the podium that he's being denied, that there is a coup, etc...

Meanwhile, Roger Stone, who's old criminal ass needs to be in jail where he belongs, is encouraging a coup by Trump when he loses:

Stone's sentence was commuted so he could assist in planning Trump's campaign. Since he's been out, we've had them start recruiting the "Trump army" - which is going to be a bunch of white supremacists and assholes at polling places (and you can bet, openly carrying). Don't dismiss this as a joke, because they are deadly serious about turning the US into an authoritarian state. We're going to face virulent disinformation campaigns (which Facebook will likely allow or be so slow to remove that they'll be highly effective), hacking of candidates and staff, hacking of state election boards, possibly hacking of voter rolls, ballots slow to return or "lost" thanks to Dejoy and his cronies, false information about how and when to vote (this time supplied by the USPS), and tons of other things. The whole country has to come together and help each other to vote if we're to have any chance of a fair election. In a fair election, we probably get a Biden landslide, but our chances of a fair election aren't high right now.

Nothing at the Pentagon will fundamentally change as we get the fascist out of office. We can be proud of that.
Since defence spending represents about 15% of the total Federal Budget, and about half of all discretionary budget spending, some people might think that making significant cuts to it during the middle of a recession would probably not be a good idea. At least, not if they were worried about civilian unemployment.

Doubtless it's a good idea to cut it sooner or later, since it's ridiculously high, but certainly I would want to see an economic impact statement about whatever was proposed.

Mike Bloomberg to spend at least $100 million in Florida to benefit Joe Biden

I was starting to wonder if he was going to follow through on the promises he had made to help whoever the Democratic candidate was. He had been so quiet these last few months.

I'm afraid those people simply cannot be reached. They have drunk so much of the Kool-Aid and have been so effectively gaslighted that there's just going to be no reaching them. You can show them all the facts and make them clear as day, but their eyes will remain closed.

Poor Kanye, can't catch a break!

He's only on the ballot for states with 15% of the electoral votes. So he has zero chance of getting elected. Anyone who votes for him is either throwing away their vote, or doing it as a protest against something.

Maybe he is for those Republicans who say "I am all in on Q but this clown Trump is just insane."
