Latest CNN poll shows 51% of registered voters nationwide back former Vice President Joe Biden, while 42% support President Donald Trump in the 2020 presidential race.

That this isn't at least 60/40 says...Democrats need better candidates. 

Okay, it says a lot more than that. But it says that too.

That's the other thing it says - our body politic is really encamped.

That 42% of any group support Trump versus a toaster oven says more about that group than it does about Trump (or about the toaster oven).

That's burying the actual George Floyd quote:

"Hopefully, George is looking down right now in saying this is a great thing happening for our country. A great day for him, a great day for everybody."

Apparently its a great day for a dead person.

Well, here it is, for the record.

Quote

Equal justice under the law must mean that every American receives equal treatment in every encounter with law enforcement regardless of race, color, gender or creed. They have to receive fair treatment from law enforcement. They have to receive it. We all saw what happened last week. We can’t let that happen. Hopefully George is looking down right now and saying, “This is a great thing that’s happening for our country.” It’s a great day for him, it’s a great day for everyone. This is a great day for everybody. This is a great, great day in terms of equality. It’s really what our Constitution requires and it’s what our country is all about.

I guess his point is that the May job numbers means that cops will start treating people fairly now, and that George Floyd didn't die in vain because now our economy is better.

Nothing in that full quote made any sense...much less made it better.

Joe Biden on Pres. Trump's reference to George Floyd today:

"George Floyd's last words, 'I can't breathe, I can't breathe,' have echoed all across this nation...For the president to try to put any other words in the mouth of George Floyd I frankly think is despicable."

I am not sure I buy the unemployment numbers. The only way they make sense is if the number of people looking for jobs has dramatically dropped. However even if they are 13%, the peak unemployment from the great recession was 10%.

If nothing else, the “hold a book you’ve never read in front of a building you won’t go into” challenge has had some inspired work on social media.

They aren't accurate.

I wonder how badly Trump has hurt his branding name over the last 3-1/2 years.  There's no doubt that outside the US, the Trump name is no longer associated with higher standards and prestige.  I could see some hotels definitely changing their name to remove the Trump brand.

It will be neat to see what happens inside the US.  Outside of dense Republican areas, I can see the brand dying out.

The Trump name will lose almost all its value once he's no longer president. No business will want to be associated with such a divisive name and alienate at least half of potential customers.

Well, maybe not every business. Trump Tower Tuscaloosa would probably be successful.

I think the Trump brand is pretty much done but the connections and lingering influence are likely more valuable particularly considering the positions he gave his family members.

My post was in reference to George Bush not supporting Trump.

Does this mean you think George Bush is one of the good guys? I assure you, he isn't. He is a war criminal.

So you’ve finally made up your mind, eh? 
 

Not quite there for me. I was leaning heavily for Trump but now I might have to vote for Biden just because you’ve pushed me into it. 
 

I’ll make a final decision later, all depends what happens.

The first part of the statement has nothing to do with the 2nd part of the statement. No issue with the first part, but not sure I get what Floyd would be happy with regarding a week of economic numbers.
