I think come November, most swing voters will realize that the Dem nominee would have handled COVID-19 much, much better than Trump. As well as basically every other issue in the past 3+ years.

Seems kind of premature right now to tell, since we are still early in the pandemic. Generally the president gets a favorability boost during a tragedy (9/11, Iran hostage crisis etc), but it is also transient and contingent on a positive outcome. If the bodies pile up it would probably not be beneficial for his election campaign. The ads would write themselves, just show him talking about how it is not a big deal from Jan to Feb.

Who could have seen this coming

Symone Sanders and Biden's official twitter all misinformed voters that if you felt fine, it was safe to go vote. Tanden backed them up. Ridiculous, it was painfully obvious this put people at risk.

Southern Florida has a huge elderly population. People will (and may have already) died from these in-person elections.

And I have to point out again, a lot of voting and civil rights groups campaigned to keep the in-person elections that day. It was a very strange mission vs. logic thing going on. Only Ohio delayed their vote. //

Democratic party put people at risk holding those in-person primaries a couple weeks ago.  Sanders' campaign manager, the Biden camp, Tom Perez & the DNC almost certainly got people killed.

I wonder how many people are going to get really sick, die and/or go bankrupt to vote in a primary that could award the nomination to someone not even on the ballot.

The only thing that will save Trump's reelection is if the economy comes roaring back just on time.  I have my doubts that is going to happen.

Certainly people aren't going to be pointing to his handling of this crisis for a reason to vote for him.  Im confident about that.

I really don't think Trump has a shot in November.

In the end, we are left with former Vice President Joe Biden and Sanders. Biden's trajectory to the top was a function of two factors. In the first place, he is a known and liked commodity with key Democratic constituencies – in particular, African Americans and unions. More importantly, to the party establishment and its donor base, he's not Bernie.

From the beginning of this election, nothing frightened the establishment more than the prospect of a Sanders' victory. Early on, there had been a spate of editorials and television commentaries warning about Sanders. Soon after he won the plurality of votes in the first three contests (Iowa, New Hampshire, and Nevada), the hysteria grew into an unprecedented avalanche of attacks. In the four decades in which I've been active in party politics, I've never seen anything quite like it.    

In addition to paid attack ads sponsored by "dark money" Super PACs, Democratic elected officials and party leaders and a host of TV commentators and editorial writers joined in what, at times, appeared to be an organized chorus of opposition. Some of the themes were: if Bernie wins, Trump will win; if Bernie wins, Democrats will lose the House of Representatives and never regain control of the Senate; if Bernie wins, he'll destroy the Democratic Party. Others were: Bernie's a socialist; Bernie is a left-wing version of Trump; Bernie will bankrupt the government; and, for good measure, he's too old and he's sick. One of the "liberal" networks was such a consistent and vigorous participant in this all-out negative onslaught, that it appeared to be more an "anti-Bernie Super PAC" than a television news channel.

Biden, whose campaign after Nevada was limping along, short of funds and poorly situated to win nationally, was the beneficiary of this solid week of paid and free negative media campaigning. After decisively winning South Carolina, which he was expected to do, other moderate Democratic candidates started to withdraw from the race, throwing their support his way.

The establishment now had their standard bearer to confront the threat posed by Sanders. And in the contests that followed a week later, Biden won most quite handily, with polls showing that while a majority of voters supported Sanders' agenda, they were clearly influenced by the attacks on his candidacy. What voters told pollsters was that they wanted to win in November and were afraid that the "socialist" couldn't win – despite polls showing that Sanders' margin of victory over Trump was the same as that of Biden.

Now with the havoc created by the coronavirus, the rest of this campaign season is in limbo. There will be no more rallies and no more door-to-door campaigning. And after the miserable voter turnouts in last week's contests, some states are now seeking to postpone their voting altogether.

We are now entering uncharted waters, with no one knowing how the rest of this election will unfold. Calls are growing, from the same establishment political figures, urging Bernie Sanders to end his campaign in order to provide Joe Biden with a clear path to victory.

Whether or not Sanders withdraws, what's clear is the lesson I learned at that dinner in Detroit. This isn't just another candidate and just another campaign. It is a political movement for change that must be reckoned with. The challenge that progressives pose to the moderate wing of the party is real and will not end. They will continue to assert that government has a positive and decisive role to play in challenging income inequality, guaranteeing the right to health care and education, and insuring racial, social, political, and environmental justice for all.

The moderates may win this skirmish, but to build the majoritarian movement that will ensure victory in November they will need to accommodate party's progressives. There is no other way forward.

This.  But Trump supporters seem to believe that this issue will help him.  I'm fairly sure he was getting beaten by Biden no matter what.  One just has to look at the states that Bernie beat Hillary in but Biden beat Bernie.  These are the states that Hillary just lost and Biden needs to win.  Florida is so close that more old people voting for Biden then Hillary and the fact that felons can now vote all bode well to Biden closing the 100k vote gap there.

But who in the world would vote for the dude at the helm during a recession and unemployment unlike anything seen before?  Even if it's not Trump's fault, the fact is that the virus exploded and economy imploded under his watch.  We see what happens under Trump and it's bad.  Of course most voters will vote for the devil they don't know when the devil they do know has results like this.

Ten million Americans have filed for unemployment benefits in the past two weeks.  

One thing's for sure- these folks love their employer insurance plans.  I've seen costs for coronavirus treatment with no insurance running around thirty-four thousand dollars.  

I would love to see debates on healthcare now that the current system is leaving people on the street to die.  It'd be great to see their industry-friendly talking points exposed for the sham they always were.  Coronavirus Cures For All Who Want It.

Which is likely related to all these "when is Bernie dropping out?" articles/tweets/interviews that are miraculously springing up in a completely uncoordinated effort.

I am going to copy this statement first without telling you it's author. Many of you probably know or will guess. I have never been a big fan but this was a very well written and  articulate. 

 “Well, it finally isn’t funny anymore – the grandiosity, the ignorance, the cruelty, the bullying, the racism, the petty insults and incessant stupidity. But especially the non-stop lying. The greatest asset that a president can bring to a crisis is credibility. On Day One of his presidency, Donald Trump chose to pick a fight with the media about the size of his inaugural crowd. On the morning of January 21, 2017, after fewer than 24 hours in office, Trump sent out Sean Spicer to tell the press corps a laughable and easily disprovable lie – that Trump’s crowd was the largest in history ever to attend a presidential inaugural. The very next day, Kellyanne Conway let Americans know of the existence of something called “alternative facts.” Oh. So, that’s how it’s going to be, huh?

Since then, the lies have come so fast and furious that keeping track has been impossible. How do you remember the last one when three or four equally ridiculous lies are almost certain to follow that day? “Don’t take him literally,” his supporters insisted. “Take him seriously.” Really? Well, no. What they really were saying was how happy they were that he would be appointing pro-life, pro-corporate Federalist Society judges, cutting taxes to benefit the wealthy, undoing regulations to help corporations exploit their employees and destroy our environment, and pulling us out of the Paris Agreement and the Iran Nuclear Deal. That the President of the United States is a malignant narcissist who could allow no fact to stand that contradicted his insatiable need for self-aggrandizement has been of little concern to establishment Republicans. The stock market was climbing. They were getting richer. And they had cover from the right-wing media to fool enough of his base into believing his limitless dishonesty. At this year’s State of the Union, the First Lady bestowed upon Rush Limbaugh the Presidential Medal of Freedom, an honor he now shares with Mother Teresa, Cesar Chavez, and the crew of Apollo 13. In 1995, I wrote a book entitled Rush Limbaugh is a Big Fat Idiot and Other Observations for a reason – the same reason that I wrote Lies and the Lying Liars Who Tell Them – A Fair and Balanced Look at the Right a few years later. Without Rush, without O’Reilly, without Hannity, without Newsmax, Breitbart, and InfoWars there would be no Trump.

Until this crisis, Trump has paid no real price for his constant, pathological mendacity. Before politics, the man had spent his entire career in a business where, evidently, there was no accountability for inveterate lying. But for this crisis there is accountability. And instead of leading, Donald Trump’s focus has been where it always has been – on Donald Trump. “I give myself a ten out of ten.” “We are very close to a vaccine.” “I don’t take responsibility at all.” “Anybody who needs a test can get a test. And the tests are perfect. Like the letter was perfect. The transcript was perfect.” Of course, no leader could have prevented the devastation that this virus has and will continue to exact. But because Trump’s focus has been on himself, his reelection, and his fragile self-image, our federal government squandered our most valuable commodity. And the amount of suffering which that lost time will cost our nation is as tragic as it is unknowable. Trump will not step away. He will continue to take the stage and our focus – but he will not be able to claim the credibility he never earned. We are left to proceed despite our president and find the leadership we need elsewhere. From governors and mayors and other civil servants. From health care professionals and scientists and economists. From community leaders and each other. It is time for each of us to step up and fill the vacuum at the top – first by staying home. And for those fortunate enough to weather this storm financially – to help those who cannot.

Lest we forget Trump’s Houdini-like ability to escape the traps he’s set for himself, it is also time for us to commit to his defeat in November. For now, find a way to do that from home. But when it’s time to come out into the light, it must be our collective mission to make this godawful human being pay the price for every lie he has ever uttered.”

That Wisconsin Supreme Court result should scare the Trump out of Republicans. 

180 polling places cut down to five in Milwaukee.  The surge of absentee ballots not processed because the Republican Supreme Court ruled they wouldn't count.

And it still wasn't enough.

Some very interesting results for WI.  With 2/3's reporting, the Presidential Dems received 645k to GOP 449k.  WI Supreme Court, Karofsky (Liberal) 563k to Kelly (Conservative) 495k.   About 36k less SC votes than Presidential candidate votes, and Kelly received 54k more than trump.

I'm not sure that I'm surprised.  Maybe a little since it's a Spring election and turnout last year was very low.  However, the 2018 WI mid-terms witnessed a bit of a blue wave.  Tony Evers, knocking out GOP donor heavyweight Scott Walker, and Evers is not someone I would consider a great candidate.  WI also leans strong towards healthcare as a primary voting issue.  Education too as evidence of the huge number of school referendums across the state.  And then add in some farm tariffs on top of it all.  Still a very moderate state and the economy is just as important, but I wouldn't be surprised if Biden won in November.

It’s also notable that the two Walker-appointed incumbent circuit court judges up for re-election today both lost by about 20 points to newcomers. 

Given the fact that Trump strongly endorsed Kelly in the days leading up to the election, together with the GOP’s successful vote suppression tactics, this seems to be a bad sign for Trump here in November.

I was happy to vote for Paul and admired him back in the day, but he's shown himself to be a complete ###hole in retirement.  Maybe he was all along and I just didn't notice.  His son is also a complete ####stick.  #### Ron Paul.

Should note also that Virginia dumped its Lee-Jackson holiday in the process. Maybe we can convince them to join the National Popular Vote Interstate Compact next.

I'd probably agree with Trumpites and say the WI results don't mean anything about anything but apparently turnout in Milwaukee increased almost 20% over 2018 and 2016. That should worry Republicans.

I don't know anything about the numbers, for whatever reason I thought turnout was really low, like really really low, but that maybe was at the polls themselves? At any rate if that's correct, that's the path to Dem victory, turnout in Milwaukee, Detroit & Philly, IMO.

The confusion might be the reporting on physical turnout vs mail in voting. I think physical turnout was well below 10%

I'm not sure about the exact numbers, but generally this is correct.  Absentee voting (by mail and via drive-up in the week or so prior to election day) was many multiples of the norm. In-person voting was way down. That's why we all expect the GOP to attack and limit these "alternate" forms of voting in November.  They're laying the groundwork now.  In Wisconsin, it is going to create some hilarious contradictions - for example, our entire supreme court, president Trump and all of our troops all voted by mail this year, but it will be attacked as fraudulent.  The GOP, at least in Wisconsin, is very comfortable with blatantly contradicting themselves for baldly partisan reasons. When the governor's office changed parties last year, the GOP legislature had no problem reversing years of practices, policies and laws to strip his office of the power they had centralized there under the former administration.

I read on the twitters that something like 80% of the Wisky ballots were some variation of mail.

Yes, this will be an enormously important issue in the next few months (among many). In addition to Donald and a large percentage of military members voting by mail, Republicans will also be in the uncomfortable position of explaining why Utah -- Utah!! -- can apparently make voting by mail a secure reality but other states can't.

Cooper has done a good job in his term and shutting things down in NC ahead of the cases.  39th in cases/deaths per capita.  Agree with regard to Tillis. 

Surprised to see Cunningham doing so well, didn't impress me in the primaries.  Erica Smith had much better resume, but Cal raised a ton of money.

I learned just now from this thread the results of that WI supreme court race. For some reason I just assumed the incumbent won due to the supreme court ruling and did not recall seeing any news anywhere.

Just a month ago Trump and his supporters were riding high on the results of the Gallup poll. What say you now?

 

A new poll suggests that President Trump’s approval rating has slipped 6 percentage points over the past month amid the coronavirus pandemic health crisis which has forced the shuttering of much of the nation’s economy.

The president’s slide in a new Gallup national survey comes as the poll shows a plunge in the percentage of Americans satisfied with the ways things are going right now in the country.
