Ground Reports #2 – Voting Begins: What is Happening in Your Area?…

This is the second in our series of CTH ground reports. With Treepers in every state, your information is actually a great insight into the political landscape.

Individual reports are obviously anecdotal; however, when they are compiled on a larger scale, and overlaid against the social media network we also follow, these ground reports have proven to be pretty darned accurate.  Early voting has begun.  If you have voted in person feel free to share your experience.

President Trump is surging at precisely the right moment.  Momentum is building and you can see all across social media platforms the MAGA movement is pushing back against censorship.  Massive boat parades and incredible vehicle parades both replete with flags and banners supporting our President.

Yard signs/banners are now out in force and the MAGA gear is visible everywhere. In the past week the latest viral platform videos are of Trump dancing; Trumpy dance and Tik-Tok duets. Good stuff.  The biggest single attribute connecting all of these visible events is joy, fellowship and the visible spirit of a patriotic movement happy to stand with President Trump.

Tens-of-thousands for rallies and Trump events; and even surrogates for President Trump are drawing exponentially larger crowds than the democrat candidates.

The monster vote is awake and alive.

All visible support for President Trump is genuinely organic, grassroots and easily identifiable as not being politically coordinated. Conversely all media-focused support for Joe Biden -used to frame the current election narrative- is transparently astroturf, inorganic and easily identified as being contrived. There truly is a remarkable and easily witnessed distinction.

We have the best candidate. We have the best message. Our color-blind movement is optimistic and filled with patriotic joy. Massive numbers of Latinos; massive numbers of blacks; massive numbers of young voters.  The confidence level is high.

Our opposition is shallow, reliant upon astroturf and media manipulation. Ignore the narrative engineers and join in fellowship. Live your best life.  Put out the signs; wear the gear; engage with everyone; be openly optimistic and rally to the standard. We have got this if we want it…

Deserve MAGA victory !!  Get your ass in the game, get serious, get everyone involved and register those who never voted before; remind everyone, and drive the MONSTER VOTE !!

So here’s the question…  What do you see in your area?

What is the visible situation from your community and how does that contrast or align with the national narrative you are seeing as promoted by media?

How does the turnout look?  What are you seeing in/around your neighborhood and polling place?   If you have early voted in-person, what was turnout like?

Ground reports are a great way to get a *sense* of the election.

    It is unbelievable how many people are turning out for early voting here in eastern NC this year. Each time I’ve been by there, the parking lot has been full and the line outside the building has been long.

    I’ve never seen it like this before.

    However, I’ve also never seen so many democrat signs either. The roads are littered with Biden/Harris signs and the Trump/Pence signs are being vandalized. SMH.

        We really ARE under siege…. from the graduates of the liberal universities in the Piedmont section of the state and also from liberal Northerners moving to the beaches of the southeastern coast (NC, SC, GA) and bringing their opinions with them. That must be why the dem signs have become so prevalent.

        Even back in 1990 when we moved here (we were both born here), the locals resented the takeover. There were many jokes about “the same road that brought you here will take you back to where you belong”.

          Yesterday my daughter and her husband voted early. Went just prior to polls closing so lines not long at that time.

          I see the difference in ABSENTEE ballots. I am elderly so Trump team sent me a form to request absentee (and called twice to remind me to turn it in.) I filled out my ballot, daughter was my witness, I signed it. She took my ballot with her to turn it in at the polling place. I was impressed with the process. The lady registering people checked my name off in her big book, dated and initialed my ballot envelope——got up and unlocked a box behind her for absentee ballots—put in my ballot, and re-locked the box.

          MUCH MORE SECURE THAN TOSSING IT IN THE MAIL. Three votes for POTUS from us yesterday.

      If they are on the roadside (as compared to yards) then campaigns are putting them up. Wouldn’t let that be the indicator- they can astroturf those.

      Here where I live in CT. I was stopped at a red light. I watched a lady pull up to Republican signs (including Trump) that were on a roadside next to the river by a major intersection- you know public property, get out and remove the R signs. She put them in her car and replaced them with Hayes, about 4-5 o them and 3-4 Biden signs.

      I just rolled down the window and said, yeah that will work. She told me f-off. I just said, have a good day. The signs have since been removed and replaced with one Hayes, one Biden, one local Dem rep…..and I think someone trolled them because there were Trump signs on either side of the Biden sign for a few days.

      Pathetic people.

    Ocala, Fl (Marion County)
    Driving around the back roads south of town Trump signs are everywhere. My guestimate is they outnumber Biden signs by at least 15 to 1. I drove past two early polling places on Monday and both had very long lines outside. I returned Tuesday to vote and the wait was approximately 45 minutes. Lots of Trump bumper stickers and signs in the parking lot.

    Last Saturday I had lunch in downtown Ocala directly across the street from the central park. There was an organized “rally” taking place as part of the “Women”s March” where they were handing out Biden signs.. Possibly 100 people in attendance. After the “rally” they held a rather pathetic march around the town square and quickly dispersed.

    President Trump will win this area of Florida by a wide margin.

    Citrus County, NW Florida. Strong support for our President here. Trump/ Pence signs everywhere and some pretty impressive flag displays on boats. Have only seen a couple of small Biden signs and one poor pitiful soul with a Biden/Harris face mask in the supermarket. Like much of Florida we’ve got our share of NE transplants, but they seem to be laying low or perhaps they’re Trump supporters as well.
    The only pushback I know of, are a few liberal “harpies“ on the NEXTDOOR app who spew anti Trump rhetoric daily. They seem quite concerned about a potential neighborhood Trump parade, they claim that would be “Divisive”. I have to laugh at that.
    Have noticed several “Faith over Fear” yard signs in the more rural areas and up around Ocala. I’m thinking this must be pushback against the COVID hype.
    All in all, life is good, and as Sundance recommends I’m trying to live the best life possible. Not just know but in the future as well, no matter the outcome on November 3rd.

    TX 4th district. Early voting heavy. This region will go very strongly Trump.

    Based on my adult daughter, who has turned extremely liberal at Texas Tech, the young vote has a hard time with the Biden / Harris ticket. Some will hold their nose and vote to beat Trump because they hate him that much, but a lot will not be excited enough about Biden to bother.

    Voter turnout in middle TN is massive. I waited over an hour in line this week to do early voting. The early voting turnout resembles a typical election day turnout in the past.

    Lots of Trump signs around middle TN, only a handful of signs for “the big guy”.

    Driving through northern and central FL this week, there is massive support for Trump in this area as well.

    My husband and I voted in person on Sunday in suburb of Atlanta in a purple county. Had been red for ages, demographics have been changing over the years, flipped to blue in 2018, but looks like it is flipping back. Full stream of people but moved well. In and out within 15 minutes. The county has early in person voting for 12 hours a day, 7 days a week, for 18 days, at 9 locations – for population of just under 1million. Yet national press screamed suppression by Kemp when there were lines the first day. Lots of people are voting, enthusiasm is really high. This state will stay red.

    Williamson Cty, Texas –
    Voted early in a Randall’s- lines every day but takes about 20-30 minutes from start to finish.
    Definitely an uptick in early voters from previous years. Poll workers mostly elderly, didn’t notice anything off. Used the new ‘express’ voting. You vote, print your ballot out, then take it to another machine and insert it to ‘officially’ be counted. Actually took longer than the previous way so didn’t see how it was ‘express’.

    Republicans have a better ground game (sate/local/federal level) than they did in 2018 mid terms.

    The support for Trump across this country has been amazing compared to 2016. I don’t see how he can’t win and win big. I’m cautiously optimistic. I think he’ll take 2016 states + Hawaii, Nevada, Minn. He might get closer in CA, NY versus 2016. I really hope he gets the popular vote too – that will solidify it!

      FYI Minnesota–I live in Stillwater, an upscale suburb of St. Paul, and, unfortunately, see mostly Biden signs. Trump’s support in this state is coming from the rural areas in the south and, especially, the Iron Range of norther MN. The results for the Range typically come in last on election eve so if you all hear early reports of Biden being ahead don’t give up on us. I’m praying for a heavy turnout in the Duluth/Hibbing/Virginia area to deliver our state to our wonderful President! On Tuesday we had a massive snow storm that ground the state to a halt. Fingers and toes crossed for good weather as many of us will NOT early vote as we don’t trust the process.

    I live in N/W Ohio in Lucas County which is strongly Democrat. Biden event last week at UAW Hall was poorly attended. (Good sign!) More Trump people across the street demonstrating than actual Union sheep at the Biden event. (Another good sign!) Many people out in suburban areas with their Trump signs, Trump gear, and peaceful Trump demonstrations by supporters at major intersections. Ohio should be good to the best President since Lincoln.

      I don’t think the Unions are stumping for Biden this time. I should clarify- trade unions. They are benefitting from the new trade agreements and the return of manufacturing (albeit purposefully halted at the moment). I work in the power generation industry as an insurer- big policies for large equipment and property damage. I speak to people all the time during my risk control activities. The trades at my sites all seem to support Trump. Although most are on the down-low about it. They speak to you on the conference calls until certain people join (usually a co-worker they know who opposes Trump).

    I live in a very red county in Indiana, there are no large cities in my county. After listening to POTUS for two hours on the Rush Limbaugh show, I went to vote early as soon as the program ended. It took an hour all told to wait in line and vote – Voter ID is required in Indiana. It was late in the afternoon, but the line was just as long when I left as when I arrived. There is a way to check online whether one’s vote has been properly recorded, and I made sure yesterday that mine has been.

    In 2016, everyone I knew kept quiet about for whom they planned to vote. There were few political signs other than for local candidates and politics was avoided as a topic of conversation. It’s a lot different this year. I see Trump flags and yard signs everywhere, especially in rural areas. It’s common to see two flags mounted on pickup truck beds, one Trump and one U.S. flag, streaming gaily behind as the truck zooms down the street. A lot of people have “Trump 2020” on the facemasks they are forced to wear. There was recently a Trump caravan that went past our house, it took over an hour for all the vehicles to pass by and they were not driving slowly. I can count the number of Biden signs I have seen on the fingers of one hand, they were all within city/town limits. It’s hard to believe that the election will be anything but a Trump landslide.

    I’m in the Cleveland/Akron area, rural but somewhat suburban county. Some Trump signs but I’ve seen more Biden signs than before. However, I have heard that Pres Trump has Ohio so I will try not to fret about this state.. I would imagine the Trump supporters are not being demonstrative because of the intimidation the Left has done to us.

    What really threw me off was the neighbor next door, who was a registered Republican, who has local Democrat signs in her yard. I’ve now got 6 local Republican candidate signs in my yard and Trump 2020 so all the Biden supporters around me can bite me. We better not get vandalized. There are Biden signs on my street, I think I am surrounded by Biden people now.

    Youngest was almost in tears when he saw the signs. “What if my friends see them?” Then I will explain how they’d be stupid to support a Democrat. Why should I be embarrassed? This is what the media has done to people, including our children, who were Trump supporters. Now they are afraid and ashamed.

    I probably wouldn’t have put the local GOP races out if not for my flipped neighbor. I don’t know how my town is going to go, though, as far as staying mostly Republican. I imagine the diehards are the ones putting out the Biden signs this time. I’m getting the impression there is some marxist critical race theory going on around here.

    I drive into rural Delaware county every week, see Trump signs, but surprisingly quite a few Biden that is disturbing, even into Licking county. However, I know they had a massive Trump rally at my hometown’s square a couple or so weeks ago. There’s no way they will flip to Biden, so the Democrats are being more demonstrative, is what I think it comes down to. But lots of Columbus urbanites moving out to Delaware county now, so it could flip at some point.

    I drove past the county Board of Elections yesterday and they had a pretty full parking lot for early voting. We haven’t voted yet, will hold and hope we don’t get sick or something, in hopes we can vote on election day. My fear is the Dems want to know by how much they need to cheat. I don’t know if I need to worry so much about that in Ohio, though.

    Denver suburbs are ripe with Biden/Harris yard signs and BLM signs. Of the houses that do have signs out, there are 25 Biden signs for every one Trump yard sign. Not surprising for red Denver.
    Thirty minutes out of town is a different story. The rural areas are all Trump, and their signs are huge. Also not surprising for blue rural Colorado. Colorado will go red again – they just have the urban numbers in Denver and Boulder.

    This will be quick because I’m on my way to meet the gym and bust his ass.

    Here in central CT, things have shifted since SD asked this a week or two ago. When I reported at the time, I said there were not many signs; Biden was ahead and few Trump signs. Yet, still less Biden signs than Hillary in 2016. Mostly the fat cat houses or upper-middle-class with Biden.

    Now- there are more Trump signs. Not by a lot but more. Trump signs are popping up faster than Biden. And it’s the same houses from 2016 that displayed Hillary sings displaying Biden. A lot of local races. I am seeing a lot of Miss Hayes signs here since I’m in her district. I have not seen one sign from her opponent.

    For me, what I am starting to notice here in CT- the news stories about CASES of Covid are on the rise. And the tone of those stories is getting direr and direr. I think they are targeting to have a huge spike right before election day so they can declare polls closed. Maybe I’m paranoid, but the number of stories on the news is increasing too fast.

    But, at my gym, since I’m about to head there- I have overheard people who I thought were very liberal talking about voting for Trump with the owner. So there’s that….

So, my husband and I voted on Saturday afternoon. No waiting at all. Two days earlier, I had gone to the same polling place to pick up a neighbor who was working the polls (for the Tea Party) to attend a President Trump rally in Greenville, NC (my first one!) and the line was the longest I had ever seen at this polling place. All of the folks were courteous. Lots of enthusiasm from those who were working the polls for our side; the other side showed zero enthusiasm.

    I am in the blue Broward County, Florida. My wife and I voted yesterday. Our early voting site is located in a local branch library. During the last presidential election there was ample parking. We left the house at 3:30. My wife had determined that the wait was 15 minutes. It has been raining “cats and dogs” here unabated for days so the ground is soaked. When we arrived the parking lot was packed (about 100 parking spots). Vehicles were parked in the grass and mud was everywhere for about 100 yards outside the site. The line outside was about 50 people, socially distanced, deep. This is 2x times my experience 4 years ago.

    We decided to go to a different early polling location. When we arrived at the regional library there was ample parking. The line was about the same. One voter, waiting for her husband, broke from the line to continue waiting outside and advised us it was 15 minutes to the door. The mood was mixed with laughter, covid distancing awareness, and benign chatter. Once inside the line formed a U of about 100 voters socially distanced. I witnessed a constant stream of voters dropping of ballots.

    I listened while a poll worker explained the procedure to cast a drop-off ballot: “sign the ballot and have it witnessed.” While in line a poll worker on a break commented something about the presidency to me. I could not understand her behind the mask and chose not to engage her in a conversation. I estimate that there were 20 poll workers present (Disproportionate along racial lines).

    When at the kiosk for identification and ballot receipt, I noticed there were about 50 booths and about 20 were occupied. So, about 150 queuing and 20 voting. My identity was verified, ballot printed and verified in my presence. In all it took around an hour to cast my ballot.

  22. Very few yard signs out at all. Almost none on vehicles. People are in fear of retribution and property damage if they display the “wrong” candidate’s message.

    The closer one is to “the city” the fewer signs for PDJT. So called “affluent” neighborhoods have fewer political signs and more BLM signs – ostensibly to fend off attacks and property damage.

    In stores, if you attempt to discuss politics, people are constantly looking over the shoulders in fear of offending someone! It is damn sad, but there is “fear in the air”…………

    East TN – long lines waiting up to 3 hours. All election workers I know in our area tell me it is the biggest early voting turnout ever by a huge margin. Voters look at the lines, then try to find early voting options in the same county in less populated areas, causing them to back up some as well. My spouse and I voted the very first day in one the more rural locations and were able to get it done in 30 minutes.

    It’s not letting up with a week to go in the early voting period. FWIW, our county will be 85+% for PDT and the GOP.

    I moved from CA to Texas in 2005. Part of the reason for moving to The Woodlands, TX was the political map (as well as affordable housing, exemplary schools, community amenities, proximity to jobs and culture, etc. The sense that I was getting what my taxes were paying for.)
    There are more Biden signs in my neighborhood than I’d like to see, though they are outnumbered by Trump signs. A few in each category have disappeared and reappeared, though theft seems to be at a minimum. There was a Trump train rally at North Shore Park.
    Voting opened last week. I went the second day and had to wait 45 min. There was an elderly woman whose grandson was taking to the back of the line that I, and others, waved to the front of the line. I went in 15 min after her but came out at the same time. She was telling her grandson that there was no option to vote straight Democrat. Indeed, straight ticket voting has been eliminated in Texas.
    While in the voting booth, I had the sense that one of the workers was looking over my shoulder. I don’t know that for certain; just a feeling–spidey sense. The machines are the same ones that caused a stir a few years ago for registering false votes. There is no paper trail so I don’t know whether they can be trusted.
    I ordered a Trump flag two weeks ago and it never arrived. I’ll have to check into that.

    My parents voted in Fairfax, VA last weekend and were the first ones in line. They said the lines never even got super long. The only reason they looked long was social distancing. Fairfax is the lions den for the left. That means the left isn’t turning out. My folks were the first ones to cast their vote for MAGA last Saturday.

    Time to take back our state and take back our COUNTRY…

    Alabama here. We don’t have early voting here. President Trump will win easily here, but the Senate race is the drama here. Doug Jones flooding the airwaves-not so much from Tubberville. He has a couple of ads targeting Jones’ positions on abortion and guns and I think they’re effective. Jones has received a lot more money than Tommy, 60% coming from outside Alabama. Largest donations from NY and (shocker) Washington D.C. Tommy won’t debate him. Jones has tried to smear Tubbs, but given the level of corruption we see, it’s nothing.

    I live in an affluent county just outside Birmingham/Jefferson County. In the “old money” neighborhoods, it’s all Jones and Biden signs, placed next to the “Hate Has No Place Here” signs. Trump and Tubberville signs in the neighborhoods where people work for their money. There’s a huge increase in the number of American flags on houses and in yards. The last poll I saw (if you believe the polls) has Tubbs up 18%. Jones will win the big prize-Jefferson County, but this state has many other large counties, rural towns, farms, etc.

    Tubberville should win, but people have got to vote. Turnout was abysmal in 2018-no one wanted to vote for Roy Moore. Will never forgive Bannon for promoting him. If folks show up, the seat should flip.

    Voted in Pinellas County, FL. yesterday after lunch, had to search for spot in the parking lot!. Took about 1h15 minutes total. Line was even longer when i got out. Hold up was the handing out of ballots, they were printing them individually as you checked in, I guess because there are too many local races and everybody is coming to the same location for early voting, they can’t have ballots for all the precincts?

    The lady running for local county commission board was talking to people in line, she’s going to be there 10 hours a day every day. One guy was passing out GOP suggestions flyers, most people before and after me took it.

    There’s an amendment to require citizenship and residency to vote in FL (voted yes) and one to allow jungle primaries (voted no, saw what that did in California). A local one about county taxes for school, voted no.

    Don’t believe the hype about Trump losing N.C. I’ve been tracking the stats here and the trend continues to favor Trump (trend is R vote is steady and strong, D vote was rushed early but now is waning each day as they’ve spent their votes). More R voters yesterday than D voters…first time that I know of that happening during early voting. With the trend of waning D votes, Trump will at least equal perform 2016 meaning he wins here by 173k. This assumes the same demographic breakout of votes in 2016. Even if D vote daily totals run an average of 95k a day for the rest of early voting, Trump wins by 120k votes. The worst quasi-realistic scenario applied to the current numbers of Trump getting 86% R vote, 5% D vote, and 48% I vote…he would lose by 125k. We’re in good shape here. But vote!

    Reporting from the socialist, sanctuary state of RI:

    Not much chance of Pres. Trump winning this little state, but Pres. Trump has many supporters in little Rhody. We’ve had boat rallies, and “back the blue” and the President rallies. Local radio talk shows are lopsided, with most callers in support of President Trump, and against the crazy left.

    I think Pres. Trump will get a higher percentage of votes than last time in RI. I like to think that my vote will count toward the popular vote, anyway, even though I live in such a Democrat controlled state, which hasn’t voted for many Republican presidential candidates in its history . I would love for the DJT to win the electoral college AND the popular vote.

    The RI sec. of state sent out absentee ballot requests to all registered voters. The Supreme Court sided with her in removing the requirement of two witnesses or a notary required to witness an absentee voter’s signature, because of Covid-19 hardship.

    We started in person, early voting on October 14th. I know local TV news reports showed some lines the first day, early in the day. The sec of state twitter update from yesterday says 94,875, or 11.7% have already voted, by mail or in early, in person voting. . .

    My family is still on the fence about voting early, or voting on election day. This early voting just seems weird to me. Election Day should be Election Day, I think in my old boomer mind.

    Progressives are targeting town and city councils to gain footholds, We have more young progressives running in my community than what I call “normal”, smart people. The sec. of state has actively campaigned for some of these progressive candidates. We currently have a good council, and I hope and pray that many of the incumbents get voted back in.

    I’m in Atlanta suburbs – Alpharetta, Roswell, Dunwoody and Sandy Springs. I drive a lot for my business and I see a fair amount of Democrat signs, but definitely more Republican signs. Am trying to coordinate schedule to do some poll watching down in the Atlanta area – Fulton county. This is where lots of opportunity exists and Fulton and Dekalb county went blue in 2016. If Trump gets a greater portion of the black vote, then these two counties could go red.

    Last night on the radio Jay Sekulow was talking about a new supposition of GA going blue. Sundance’s article the left – big Tech, media all trying to create the facade of winning was perfect timing. My husband and I would be very surprised if Trump lost here as well as David Perdue. Jon Ossoff is running against Perdue and I hear and see few ads, but lots of ads about Ossoff taking Chinese money – Club for Growth I believe.

    We are in 6th district and want Karen Handel to get the seat back. Lucy McBath offers gun control to the state, that’s it. I have seen about two McBath signs compared to hundreds of Handel.

    Voting started last week, it was crazy and lines most of the time but this week has definitely tapered off in the areas I mentioned.

    Voted in Nashville, TN yesterday. Took about 45 minutes in all. Voter Id was well verified, but then we put our completed ballots in a computer scanner, and off it went into cyberspace la la land. It does appear as though the original ballot dropped into a lock box. A receipt system would be so simple, but no political will exists to make that happen. We see Biden signs in about 10-15% of the yards. No Trump signs. Perhaps a good number of homes without signs support MAGA. We do see US Flags in 10-15% of the homes. These are DJT supporters, I suspect. Nashville proper usually goes blue. There were TWO unopposed State Rep Dems running (I voted in 5 contests yesterday.) No GOP option for these two. The TN State GOP are completely MIA. I’ve written twice and gone once, in person, offering my volunteer help. Not ONE WORD back from them. TN GOP execs have to go!

    I voted on Tues., early voting. I had requested, and received, an absentee ballot just in case I would be out of the area when it came time to vote. They had a very strict procedure to turn in that ballot so you could vote in person and they followed it to the letter. I also had to show a picture ID and sign some kind of digital thing. I remember all this, too, from voting in the past.

    I live in Lakeland, FL. I went to a town near me to vote. The town is small and maybe more rural. I got there about 10:30 and walked right in. There were people at most of the voting stations and the ballots were paper which we had to feed into a machine that supposedly reads it. I didn’t ask about it, but it looked like there were also some tables set up where people could sit down to mark their ballots. After I picked up my ballot, more people started to line up behind me. When I left, there was a line forming of about 10 people with more cars coming.

    Most of the people who were voting looked like they were well over 60 yrs old. I am seeing more signs, a few for Biden, more for Trump, although there are fewer signs than I remember from past elections. I do think people are afraid. I only occasionally see a bumper sticker and it is usually for Trump,

    Here in California Im seeing something Ive never witnessed before. The Latino vote is strong for Trump. I witnessed weeks back a Trump rally in the small farm town of Salinas, in California’s Central Valley. The rally was held at the edge of town, near Star Market, at the entrance to the 68 highway which connects the ultra-rich liberal elite coastal towns of the Monterey Peninsula with the poor and impoverished agricultural towns in the Central Valley. There was a massive crowd of Latinos with many speaking Spanish and very little of anything else. They are voting for Trump.

    When I travel the Reservations of the lower Colorado River, from south of the Laughlin dam all the way to the Mexican border I meet often with many Native Americans and the majority of their tribal members are voting for Trump.

He told me, “Donald Trump is a not a man OF the people, he is a man FOR the people.”

    Anecdote: My own sister, who is a highly educated medical professional, voted for Trump in 2016 but has turned against him over COVID. Her reason? She is horrified President Trump downplays the seriousness of the virus contrary to the gospel preached by “experts” Fauci and Birx. She considers them rock stars.

    She watched every minute of every daily coronavirus taskforce and hung on every word. As she describes it, the doctors and epidemiologists would present factual information supported by data, and then President Trump would take the stage and go off on a riff about what had just been presented demonstrating a serious lack of understanding about what had just been presented. She specifically cited the day when Dr. Birx discussed the effectiveness of various disinfectants against COVID on surfaces, which prompted the president to make his infamous comment that since common bleach is the most effective wouldn’t it be great if it would work in the body to kill COVID-19.

    To which I replied, “anyone with half a brain knows what he meant: he’s speaking hypothetically. BTW do you know how chemotherapy works?”

    Luckily, she lives in Tennessee which is deep red and her non-vote for Trump won’t matter. And she’s planning to vote for Kanye not Biden, so there’s that.

      I should add: Despite being a medical professional (a physician assistant, sort of a doctor lite), her critical reasoning doesn’t seem particularly strong. She has been working from home with only limited time in her medical practice since the lockdowns began, and spends a lot of her time “doom scrolling” (her word) reading all the scary COVID-19 research in medical journals. When I pointed out that unless you are a geriatric patient with a co-morbidity you chances of dying from COVID-19 are only about 1%; nearly everyone who gets it will experience nothing worse than a cold, and a fair number will be asymptomatic and never know they had it at all. To which she replies, “yes, but we have to protect the vulnerable people … and the long term effects are serious and mostly still unknown.” I pointed out that locking down the entire country, wrecking the economy and destroying people’s lives for the sake of the very small segment of vulnerable people over 70, is like burning the house down because the dishes are dirty she replied with a version of “but if it saves only one life …”

I think the statistic is that 1/3 of all the humans who ever lived died of tuberculosis and there was not an effective treatment for it until around 1950. Before then tuberculosis was a death sentence. A long, drawn out, slow death sentence.

            But nowadays, the expectation is nobody will ever get sick and if they do they’ll never die. Even old people are expected to go on living and living forever.

      This is interesting. I know a doctor in the liberal SF Bay area who thinks the Covid hysteria is political BS and we should have been targeting the vulnerable. Her hospital has been a ghost town and is laying people off. She doesn’t wear a mask when she socializes. She is close to retirement and says she is “moving the he!I out of CA”. I think medical professionals’ opinion of PJDT’s response to Covid depends largely on their predisposition to him. I know healthcare professionals who support the President. It’s funny, I live near a hospital now and every day in the park I see a dozen or so people in scrubs, about half masked and avoiding my presence, the others with masks below their chins smiling and laughing with others. I’m guessing there are some diverse political opinions. Even though your sister voted for PDJT, I wonder if perhaps she never was a true supporter. Like you said, glad her vote won’t matter in TN!
