          Watch Norah O’Donnell. I’ve been thinking for a while that a lot of liberal journalists still see themselves as professionals, and the Biden/Harris campaign has gone past the point that they are willing to participate. Do they want fellow liberals to win, yes. Do they want to be part of propping up this fraud, no. You know Kamala Harris is a horrible candidate when you lose Norah O’Donnell. And she ain’t buying this for one second. Have another handful of gummies, Kamala.

            It looks like the Dems, who didn’t have a leg to stand on, shot themselves in their good foot by closing down so many schools.

            But of course! The kids are home with mom and dad, who are working their butts off to put those kids through college, and they are not bunched up with their peers where they are subjected to constant groupthink.

            That’s some good news, and the poll results make sense in light of that.

      The problem, here, ofc, is that it isn’t specified that she is (or is not) indeed within the legally prohibited 100-foot distance.

      Without that fact this is just sensationalist reporting.

      (She looks to be out of the “10-foot” range of those in line).

      I love Tom Fitton, but this bit (which isn’t just being passed around by him) is missing the important data. Even so, it gets “mis-read” by folks wiling to opine such things as “how is this legal”, when it might actually be legal – if she isn’t violating the distance rules – people allow themselves to be too easily led down an implied path.

              I agree.

              However, I also tend to respond to what is written; not to what wasn’t written (and not put other “points” into people mouth’s).

              In this case – it was implied that it “might be illegal” – when, in actual “legal fact” – it “might not be”.

              THAT was the subject of the tweet – and to which I responded.

              WAS she or was she NOT within 100 feet and 10 feet?

              I don’t like Harris AT ALL – but I also don’t like sensationalist B.S. style “reporting”.

              You may as well point at her car going down the road and say, “She may be driving over the speed limit – which would be illegal”, without specifying how fast she was going.

              Same type of baloney. And I don’t care for it even if it’s Tom Fitton (whom I love and support).

        It’s the left’s way of showing what they plan for us in “distancing” if they get totalitarian control. They have already published whacko “studies” to urge much greater distancing.

        Combine this with the New Green Deal visions from Dan Bongino (one of his funniest shows ever, way back when it was first announced):

        1) Because of no autos or air travel, there will be trains running constantly only a few blocks away from every address.

        2) There will be a bird-slicing windmill in every yard of every public housing complex. (Dan actually said in every house’s yard, but in my vision there will of course be no more single-family homes except for perhaps minor party members, who will have a windmill in their back yard. The Green New Deal requires that every building in the USA be rebuilt.)

        3) And (my additional vision due to COVID-1984), all pavements will be marked endlessly with painted arrows and circles dictating where slaves may stand and move, allowed outside only an hour a day as in Australia, and in those full half-body hazmat suits shown here a couple of days ago. With drones flying everywhere above to enforce it all. And cameras watching inside because masks will be required indoors 24/7.

        Everybody gets to stay inside or in the circles forever and ever!

        (Of course everybody does not include the “party elite” who will have complete freedom of everything on their giant mansion – dacha – properties.)

    Hat tip to SD, the best political researcher I’ve ever known.

    It still infuriates me that no one has been indicted except for Clinesmith.
    And it further enrages me that the media won’t make it right, And that there are people out there who actually believe the Russia hoax. My own family members believe it, Which is exasperating, and divisive.

    In England, the most respected newspaper is arguably The Sunday Times (which is separate from The Times). Yesterday, they published an article about polling in the U.S.; the article is entitled “Who will get it right?“. The first half of the article is copied below.

    ===========

    On the eve of election night in 2016, Raghavan Mayur was extremely anxious. The pollster’s TechnoMetrica company was one of only two national surveys predicting a win for Donald Trump. Almost everyone else was sure Hillary Clinton would prevail.

    “I looked like a fool,” Mayur recalled. “I sat down to watch the TV with my wife and she asked me if my career was doomed.”

    Mayur’s poll overshot the mark — Clinton won the popular vote. But his predicted outcome was correct.

    This time around, Mayur is bucking the trend once more. Most polls put Joe Biden a very healthy eight or nine points ahead in national polling and mark him as a strong favourite to win the electoral college and so the presidency.

    Mayur believes it’s much closer. “I think right now it’s a two- to four-point race,” he said. “It is definitely not a nine-point race. I have a feeling that it will get even tighter in the next few days.”

    Mayur is one of a small group of pollsters and forecasters who predicted the correct outcome in 2016 and are pushing back against the Biden consensus. At stake is the credibility of the lucrative polling and closely related prediction industry, but also the mental health of millions of liberals counting on forecasts of a Biden victory.

    To err once and miss a Trump victory is forgivable, particularly with such an unusual and coalition-scrambling candidate. After all, the national polls were generally correct in 2016 and the state polls were closer than many people recall — it was the Clinton-at-a-canter narrative that was truly askew. After all, FiveThirtyEight gave Trump a 29% chance of winning in 2016, which is far from improbable.

    Nonetheless, another miss in next week’s election would suggest that elite election analysts and the university departments and survey groups that provide them with their data, are simply no longer capable of properly assessing the American electorate.

    Mayur believes many other pollsters are missing the enthusiasm of Trump’s supporters: an enthusiasm that manifests in large boat, truck and airport rallies, where thousands travel for many miles and risk Covid-19 to celebrate their beloved leader.

    “Other pollsters live in a bubble,” Mayur said. “In that bubble there was no enthusiasm spike for Trump in 2016. People thought the rallies didn’t mean anything.”

    Another of the renegades is Robert Cahaly, a bowtie-wearing anglophile who believes there is a large “shy Trump” vote out in the country that will swing it for the president on election day. His Trafalgar Group puts Trump ahead in most of the key swing states. Cahaly got it right in Michigan and Pennsylvania in 2016, where the largest mistakes were made by other pollsters. If he’s right again, Trump will win a second term.

    A third maverick, Helmut Norpoth, a modeller at Stony Brook University, gave Trump an 87% chance of beating Clinton in 2016. This time he’s giving Trump a remarkable 91% chance of victory, based primarily on how divided the Democratic electorate was during the primary campaign. “Everybody thinks Trump is going to go down in flames, and here I am predicting with almost total certainty that he’s going to win,” he said. “It seems crazy. But it’s not.”

    What these three very different men have in common is they all operate outside of the large, closely networked world of big media-backed polling and prediction, which is generally populated by ferociously clever baseball nerds called Nate. Mayur works out of a small office in Bergen, New Jersey, and publishes his polls with the Investor’s Business Daily. Norpoth is a political scientist from a small research college in Long Island. And Cahaly is an arch-conservative with roots in South Carolina politics stretching back to the infamous political consultant Lee Atwater.

    Mayur, Cahaly and Norpoth do not pop up regularly in The Washington Post or on CNN panels. But they think this gives them an advantage.

    “In 2016 I had the guts to believe in my own data,” Mayur said. “It’s very easy to be a part of the herd. It’s really difficult to believe in yourself.”

    Cahaly also describes his fellow pollsters’ behaviour as “herding”….

    An article entitled “Will anyone from the left realize why Trump won — again?“, by Douglas MacKinnon, was recently published in The Hill. The first portion is copied below.

    ===========

    Weeks before the 2016 election, I sent an email to several media and political personalities predicting that Donald Trump would win Pennsylvania and get 306 electoral votes.

    I’m not a professional pollster, but I did work on three winning presidential campaigns, and I simply tried to block out the noise from supporters of both the Trump and Hillary Clinton campaigns. I pulled up the 2012 electoral map to see which states Mitt Romney won and then, factoring in the latest data and political miscalculations, made an educated guess for 2016.

    Using that same system, I have come up with a prediction for 2020: an absolute floor of 278 electoral votes for Trump, with a real chance that he’ll win more than 310 electoral votes.

  47. Starting November 4th drain the f**king swamp and clean house. Do some sort of federal employee employment reform to make firing employees easier, not just directors. Send some folks to prison.

    All granted if we don’t have a coup election night
