If an Average American woman was forced to have sex with Biden or Trump?  The compensation being a new car of her choice.  Which would she choose?

And don't even tell me that the average American woman would not make a choice.  Most will have an answer in less than ten seconds.



While you may find my idea amusing or not.  The results would predict the final outcome with far more accuracy than Nate Silver can hope for.





Biden’s existing advantage over Trump on the question of who would do a better job handling COVID-19.

A butterfly flaps its wings in the amazon.

A driver of a truck on a large soy farm where the Amazon used to be flips a cigarette butt out his window.

That is better.

The former Butterfly Effect becomes the Cigg Butt Effect.

Or how the son who never got his shit together changed the outcome of the 2020 election by dropping a laptop in a tub several lunar cycles ago. Chaos theory in action.



What really gives me butterflies is suspecting that the laptop never even existed in the first place and knowing it does not matter. This story needs no truth.

Q it ON !

Election at Hand, Biden Leads Trump in Four Key States, Poll Shows

    Nov. 1, 2020, 5:00 a.m. ET

Joseph R. Biden Jr. holds a clear advantage over President Trump across four of the most important presidential swing states, a new poll shows, bolstered by the support of voters who did not participate in the 2016 election and who now appear to be turning out in large numbers to cast their ballots, mainly for the Democrat.

Mr. Biden, the former vice president, is ahead of Mr. Trump in the Northern battlegrounds of Wisconsin and Pennsylvania, as well as in the Sun Belt states of Florida and Arizona, according to a poll of likely voters conducted by The New York Times and Siena College. His strength is most pronounced in Wisconsin, where he has an outright majority of the vote and leads Mr. Trump by 11 points, 52 percent to 41 percent.

Based on a New York Times/Siena College poll of likely voters from Oct. 26 to Oct. 31.

Mr. Biden’s performance across the electoral map appears to put him in a stronger position heading into Election Day than any presidential candidate since at least 2008, when in the midst of a global economic crisis Barack Obama captured the White House with 365 Electoral College votes and Mr. Biden at his side.

Mr. Trump’s apparent weakness in many of the country’s largest electoral prizes leaves him with a narrow path to the 270 Electoral College votes required to claim victory, short of a major upset or a systemic error in opinion polling surpassing even the missteps preceding the 2016 election. Should Mr. Biden’s lead hold in three of the four states tested in the survey, it would almost certainly be enough to win, and if he were to carry Florida, he would most likely need to flip just one more large state that Mr. Trump won in 2016 to clinch the presidency.

In the closing days of the campaign, Mr. Biden has a modest advantage in Florida, where he is ahead of Mr. Trump by three points, 47 percent to 44 percent. He leads by six points in both Arizona and Pennsylvania. In no state did Mr. Trump’s support climb higher than 44 percent.

    The election. And its impact on you.

The margin of error is 3.2 percentage points in Wisconsin and Florida; 3 points in Arizona and 2.4 points in Pennsylvania. 

Mr. Biden has consistently held the upper hand over Mr. Trump across the electoral map in polling conducted by The Times since late last spring. While that advantage has varied  over time, and has differed from state to state, he has at no point slipped behind Mr. Trump in any of the swing states that are likeliest to decide the election.

Mr. Biden’s lead is armored against last-minute developments in the race because of the scale of early and mail-in balloting that has already taken place as the country copes with a resurgence of the coronavirus. More than 90 million Americans had already cast their ballots as of midday Saturday, according to the United States Election Project. In three of the four states The Times surveyed, a majority of respondents said they had already voted, with Pennsylvania the exception.

The president, who narrowly carried all four states against Hillary Clinton, is now running behind his 2016 vote shares in all of them, a grave position for a sitting president just days before the election. He has also trailed consistently in public polls of Michigan, another large state he captured in 2016, which along with Wisconsin and Pennsylvania was part of the so-called Blue Wall along the Great Lakes that Democrats had relied on for decades.

Amid that bleak outlook, the president has continued to baselessly cast doubt on the integrity of the election. On Saturday in Pennsylvania, he told supporters that the nation could be waiting for weeks to learn of a winner and that “very bad things” could happen as ballots are counted in the days after the election.

Mr. Trump has continued to hold onto most of the coalition that elected him in the first place, made up chiefly of rural conservatives and white voters who did not attend college. In Florida, the president appears to have improved his position somewhat with Hispanic voters over the last four years, but he has slipped significantly with college-educated whites there.

More broadly, Mr. Trump is facing an avalanche of opposition nationally from women, people of color, voters in the cities and the suburbs, young people, seniors and, perhaps most significantly, new voters. In all four states, voters who did not participate in 2016, but who have already voted this time or plan to do so, said they support Mr. Biden by wide margins. That group includes both infrequent voters and young people who were not yet eligible to vote four years ago.

In Wisconsin, voters who did not cast a ballot in 2016 favor Mr. Biden by 19 points. They have a similarly lopsided preference in Florida, where Mr. Biden leads by 17 points. The advantage with people who sat out 2016 is 12 points in Pennsylvania and 7 points in Arizona.

Many of the those who said they did not vote in 2016 said they had already voted this year. In Florida and Arizona, more than two thirds of nonvoters in 2016 who were identified as likely voters this year said that they had already cast a ballot. That figure was 56 percent in Wisconsin and 36 percent in Pennsylvania.

Melissa Dibble, 47, of Boynton Beach, Fla., is one of those newly active voters. A registered independent, Ms. Dibble said she did not vote in 2016 because she did not believe Mrs. Clinton was “the right president for our country” and found Mr. Trump “laughable.” She said on Friday that she planned to vote for Mr. Biden that afternoon.

    Did President Trump keep his first-term promises?
    Trump is counting on efforts to target potential supporters who sat out 2016.
    A Republican lawsuit over drive-through voting in Houston could invalidate more than 120,000 votes.

“I know how important it is to vote, but I couldn’t wrap my head around the options at that point,” Ms. Dibble said of the 2016 election. She said she was voting for Mr. Biden because “I really want change. I can’t believe that we have a president who is, at night, in bed tweeting nonsense and just talks poorly about people.”

Vince Kowalewski, 73, of Muhlenberg Township, Pa., said he had never voted in his life but was intent on voting against Mr. Trump, whom he called “the worst president we’ve ever had.”

“I have to go in there and vote against him,” Mr. Kowalewski said.

But Mr. Kowalewski said he also appreciated Mr. Biden’s health care policies, including the Affordable Care Act, which he credited with helping his daughter receive lifesaving cancer treatment.

The numbers on new voters represent a setback for the president, whose advisers have long contended he would outperform his polling numbers because of the support he would receive from infrequent or inconsistent voters. Republicans continue to hope that the Trump campaign’s voter-registration and turnout machinery might give him a crucial edge over Mr. Biden in a few key battlegrounds, or at least lift the party’s down-ballot candidates enough to maintain control of the Senate.

Based on the poll, however, it seems that Mr. Biden rather than Mr. Trump could be the beneficiary of record-busting turnout.

Still, the enthusiasm Mr. Trump stirs in his supporters remains a factor in the election. Linda Shoop, of Halifax, Pa., said she did not vote in 2016 but not for lack of a preference: A Trump supporter, Ms. Shoop has arthritis and struggles to get around. But with absentee voting more widely accessible this year, she said she would vote by mail for the president.

“He has common sense,” Ms. Shoop said, describing him as more forthright than a longtime politician like Mr. Biden. The president, she said, “doesn’t lie to you. If he says he’s going to do something, he goes and he does it.”

If the president is defeated, the most obvious explanation may be his weakness with women. Mr. Biden led Mr. Trump by double digits among female voters in each of the four states, and in some states the advantage was so significant that it offset Mr. Trump’s strength among men.

In Arizona, for example, the president had an eight-point advantage with men but Mr. Biden was the overwhelming favorite of women, winning 56 percent of them compared with Mr. Trump’s 38 percent.

The other group that is propelling Mr. Biden is college-educated white voters, a traditionally Republican bloc that has fled the Trump-era party. The former vice president is leading by double digits among white voters with college degrees in Wisconsin, Pennsylvania and Arizona and beating him, 48 percent to 45 percent, with that constituency in Florida.

In Maricopa County, Ariz., home to Phoenix and its suburbs, Mr. Biden is winning 48 percent of the vote compared with 42 percent for Mr. Trump, according to the survey. In 2016, Mr. Trump won the county by three points.

Mr. Biden is also poised to become the first Democrat in 20 years to carry older adults, the voters who are most at risk with the coronavirus. In Wisconsin and Pennsylvania, the former vice president is leading by double digits with older voters. And in Florida and Arizona, retiree havens with wealthier and more tax-phobic seniors, Mr. Trump is effectively tied with Mr. Biden among older voters despite having won with them convincingly in both states in 2016.

The president remains in contention in Florida on the strength of his support from working-class whites and his gains among Hispanic voters. He’s running more competitively with Florida Latinos than he did in 2016, and 9 percent of them remain undecided.

Hispanic men in Florida, in particular, are more willing to support Mr. Trump. The poll found the two candidates splitting this group almost evenly, with Mr. Biden ahead by just one point. But the president is facing an even larger gender gap in the Hispanic community than he is over all: Latinas favor Mr. Biden by 39 points.

The traditional polls are wrong, so the MSM is really doing Democrats dirty by acting like Biden has it in the bag. It could be 2016 all over again, when the polls were wrong by a historic margin. They really haven't changed their polling methods in any significant ways.

https://dornsife.usc.edu/news/stories/3338/experimental-polling-point-to-trump-victory/
"One thing the traditional polls don't consider is that Trump voters are not nearly as vocal as Biden supporters, mostly out of fear. A lot of people will say they are voting for Biden, but that their "neighbors" or "social contacts" are voting for Trump.

In this year’s Daybreak Poll, researchers are asking participants two additional questions that are intended to, as they say, “harvest the wisdom of crowds” to predict the election outcome. The “social-circle question” asks respondents to report the percentage of their social contacts they expect to vote for each of the candidates. The other one, known as the “state winner question,” asks participants who they think will win the election in their state...

Yes, in all five of the elections in which we tested this question, the social circle question predicted election outcomes better than traditional questions about voters’ own intentions. These five elections were the 2016 U.S. Presidential election, the 2017 French Presidential election, the 2017 Dutch Parliamentary election, the 2018 Swedish Parliamentary election, and the 2018 U.S. election for House of Representatives...

When we calculate how many electoral votes each candidate could get based on state level averages of the own-intention and social-circle questions, it’s looking like an Electoral College loss for Biden. We should note that our poll was not designed for state-level predictions, and in some states we have very few participants. Even so, in 2016 it predicted that Trump would win the electoral vote. ..

To evaluate the potential impact of the shy voter belief on the responses of poll participants, we asked them three questions: What percent of their social contacts might be embarrassed to admit to pollsters their opinions about Trump or Biden, what percent might fear harassment if they admit these opinions, and what percent might want to obstruct polls by misreporting who they will vote for?

On average, our participants believe that people in their social circle might be more reluctant to admit their support for Trump than for Biden."


https://www.wsj.com/articles/the-pollster-who-thinks-trump-will-win-11604011863?mod=djemalertNEWS
"Joe Biden leads Donald Trump by an average of 7 or 8 points in national surveys, more narrowly in battleground states. Everybody remembers the shock of 2016, but can the polls be wrong again?

Ask the question in a different way: Are poll respondents telling the truth? Robert Cahaly, head of the Trafalgar Group, thinks a lot of people aren’t. Trafalgar polls accurately foresaw the outcome in 2016, calling Florida, Pennsylvania and Michigan for Mr. Trump. In 2020 the Atlanta-based consulting firm has generally shown Mr. Trump to be in a stronger position than the conventional wisdom would suggest.

In an interview over a catfish supper at the OK Cafe diner, Mr. Cahaly won’t reveal much about his methods, but he says his polls mitigate what social scientists call “social desirability bias.” The mainstream media and other authority figures have openly and aggressively contended that Mr. Trump is a white supremacist, a would-be dictator, a cretinous buffoon and an inveterate liar. In such an environment, poll respondents who sympathize with the president, or who believe his administration has on balance done more good than harm, may be forgiven for not saying so to a stranger over the phone."

It might be closer than the polls would suggest....especially the national polls, which are worthless because they don't consider that a half-dozen swing states are all that matter.

But Biden will still win unless the Republicans can steal the election in the counting rooms and/or in the courts.

Republicans have completely abandoned any pretense of a free and fair election, and are already busy trying any way in hell to cheat, anywhere they can....which happens to be a lot of places.

Poorly structured state rules in places like Pennsylvania contribute to the problem. All the little problems with getting a free and fair vote just might add up to a big problem for this country.

Because...if a candidate.....in this case Trump.....can win in the electoral college even though a large majority of citizens votes against him....then we have a system that is completely broken.

Meanwhile, millions of people are begging for an authoritarian regime....a strong man to tell them what to think and what to do....even though that strong man just might be no more informed than the worst of them....and completely incapable of doing anything except campaigning for the NEXT election.....which I would suggest is all Mr. Trump has been doing for the past four years.

He has no real principles....no ethics....no moral compass....not much of a brain....he's a carnival huckster who can run a 3 card monte with the best....and he's a hell of a tweeter.....but that's about it.

I do see the problems with the Democrats....clearly....and there are many problems there.....but just right now...I'll take my chances with all of that. Whatever legitimate complaint you can make....and there are many.....they just don't represent the kind of immediate existential threat  to our entire system that Trump does....and you Ashvin, are very capable of understanding me, and seeing what I mean. 

My prediction is that Trump loses...mainly because of COVID.....but the fact that he can even come close...and that his base will live on to fight another day in other elections.....makes me deeply sad for this country.

Your rhetoric is dangerous. Eddie. What's more dangerous is that you don't even to seem to realize it.

We already had this in 2016... Hillary won the popular vote and lost the election. You have had 3.5 years to figure out why that is a fair outcome in democratic republic, but you haven't. The dems cried foul and tried every dirty trick in the book to impeach Trump, but it didn't work because there was never any evidence anything illegal was involved.

Now people with your mentality are setting this country up for the exact same thing, where a Trump win means he somehoq stole it and therefore we need a full blown revolution. You are not explicitly saying that but that is the logical implication. And all the cards right now are stacked against Trump, with the mail in voting and media propaganda campaign against him.

Is it so hard to believe people are sick and tired of democratic politcians ruining their lives and lying through their teeth? Every time they open their mouth it is a bold faced lie and "social justice" pandering. They have no policy agenda to speak of except "trump is evil". Meanwhile, trump has actually accomplished more in his first term than the last 2 presidents combined.

A message from India:

*A tribute to President TRUMP. Hope he wins*.
Leonard William QC.
Economist.
Research Ferret.

There is no doubt that Trump is a BUFFOON !! I am sure most will agree! However !! read this:

The buffoon in the White House just brokered two Middle East Peace Accords, something that 71 years of political intervention and endless war failed to produce.

The buffoon in the White House is the first president that has not engaged us in a foreign war since Eisenhower.

The buffoon in the White House has had the greatest impact on the economy, bringing jobs, and lowering unemployment to the Black and Latino population of ANY other president. Ever.

The buffoon in the White House has exposed the deep, widespread, and long-standing corruption in the FBI, the CIA, the NSA, and the Republican and Democratic parties.

The buffoon in the White House turned NATO around and had them start paying their dues.

The buffoon in the White House neutralized the North Koreans, stopped them from developing a further nuclear capability, sending missiles toward Japan, and threatening the West Coast of the US.

The Buffoon in the White House turned our relationship to the Chinese around, brought hundreds of business back to the US, and revived the economy. Hello.

The buffoon in the White House has accomplished the appointing of two Supreme Court Justices and close to 300 Federal Judges.

The buffoon in the White House lowered your taxes and caused your stock market to move to record levels over 100 times, positively impacting the retirements of tens of millions of citizens.

The buffoon in the White House fast-tracked the development of a COVID Vaccine - it will be available within weeks - we still don't have a vaccine for SARS, Bird Flu, Ebola, or a host of diseases that arose during previous administrations.

The buffoon in the White House rebuilt our military which the Obama administration had crippled and had fired 214 key generals and admirals in his first year of office.

The buffoon in the White House uncovered widespread paedophilia in the government and in Hollywood. the buffoon in the White House is exposing worldwide sex trafficking of minors and bringing children home to their families.

The buffoon in the White House. Works for free and has lost well over 2 billion dollars of his own money in serving - and done all of this and much more in the face of relentless undermining and opposition from people who are threatened because they know they are going to be exposed as the criminals that they are if he is re-elected.


74 years old. A billionaire. Doesn’t need a cent. Could be on a beach anywhere in the world. Has worked his whole life.
Raised children who have work ethics out of this world.

Have you ever wondered if you were 74 years old, a billionaire, and diagnosed with covid, if you would still be showing up, fighting for a country where millions of the citizens hated you?

And if the opposition get into the White House, any US support for Australia against the threats from China will be gone - a loss for India.

Keith, I gave the Diner Blog over to Irv Mills yesterday to be the Chief Admin & Blogger. I am a Dead Man. Today, I give the Diner Forum to you as Chief Admin.  If you think Watson needs some Cooler Time, bring down the HAMMER.

Admin.  Power of God on a Forum.

Your rhetoric is dangerous. Eddie. What's more dangerous is that you don't even to seem to realize it.

Lol I dont think Eddie gets "triggered" by contrarian viewpoints or me saying that he is unconsciously supporting an ideological leftist position by calling the electoral college process a means of trump stealing the election. Hopefully he views it as a challenge to explain why the electoral college is a bad thing or how trump is "stealing" the election. I would love to hear credible arguments opposed to mine.

If YOU are trigerred by opposing viewpoints, just admit it. You can't blame me any more for people leaving the Diner than you can blame liberals for fleeing LA and NY. If anything your threats to censor me for calling out your resentful, hateful bullshit is what causes people to leave.

You said "you seriously hope unmasked people get taken out" in another thread. Who wants to waste time writing on a forum with 3 or 4 people and led by a bigoted, genocidal socialist? Not me. I have found several other places to have my philosophical and anti-ideological dicussions anyway. Go ahead and ban me, please!

There are numerous websites on the net that will lap up your drivel like Mother's Milk.  Why do you keep coming back here then? ???   :icon_scratch:

And your challenge to me about it, Mr. Peace and Love.  Has been answered.

In the other thread.

Ashvin probably can type fast enough to participate in a live YouTube chat.  That can be fun, and it can suck up hours.  I know.
