The article headline is grossly misleading. The Republicans are not “gaining”, they are “narrowing the gap” (and moderately at that).

16 ( +18 / -2 )

The main takeaway is that ~86% of Democrats have already voted, whereas only ~14% of registered Republicans have. That also ignores the elephant in the room , the "shy" Trump supporters who are not included in the polling numbers but are showing up at the Trump rallies in DROVES.

Biden was correct to say this weekend that the democrats have developed the largest voter fraud organization in history (his own words).

@herveThe main takeaway

Can you provide a link for your stats? Qanon? RT? Breitbart? The article doesn't mention the stats you used.

12 ( +18 / -6 )

a sign that many heeded President Donald Trump's unfounded warnings about mail-voting fraud.

Further evidence of the lack of education and gullibility of conservatives.

8 ( +14 / -6 )

I see a "red mirage" : https://www.reuters.com/article/us-usa-election-mirage-explainer-idUSKBN2771CL .

Trump declares an early victory on election night, as mail-in ballots are counted and he falls behind he moves to the courts to stop vote counting.

6 ( +10 / -4 )

Millions of conservatives as well as my friends and members in my family across the country absolutely don’t trust the mail in voting whatsoever and went to the polling stations to do it the old reliable and verified way.

-16 ( +5 / -21 )

Can you provide a link for your stats? Qanon? RT? Breitbart? The article doesn't mention the stats you used.

Well, Biff, you can do your own homework. RT and Breitbart are both far more reliable than the rabid left "news" that you likely ascribe.

-17 ( +7 / -24 )

The good thing about early voting is that those votes are now in the bank. They can’t be taken away. And they are not subject to the circumstances on election day such as inclement weather, sudden viral surges, etc.

And there is as much evidence for “shy Trump voters” as there is for pizzagate, which is to say none.

FL is indeed close but as 538 said yesterday (paraphrasing here), we are long past the point where margin of error explains differences in support among the candidates. In other words, the closer to election day, the less likely that margin of error is an excuse.

Biden’s lead has been stable and persistent for the last several months, which is why the Trump campaign is there daily. They know they are behind. They know if they lose FL, they can turn off the lights and go home.

6 ( +9 / -3 )

Millions of conservatives as well as my friends and members in my family across the country absolutely don’t trust the mail in voting whatsoever and went to the polling stations to do it the old reliable and verified way.

Right, despite evidence that voter fraud via mail in ballots is not a major concern?

I guess all those military servicemembers who are deployed/overseas who vote by mail are committing mass voter fraud....

12 ( +14 / -2 )

The good thing about early voting is that those votes are now in the bank. They can’t be taken away. 

Trump's strategy is to take away the mail in votes through a 6-3 tilted Supreme Court by claiming the mail was not secure.

He had his corrupt Postmaster General dismiss the postal police last week who oversee the security of sealed large mail trucks and containers.

A two-bit, tin pot dictator move by a draft-dodging con man supported by the tens of millions of Americans who have an IQ under 90.

4 ( +8 / -4 )

Stalin and despots always support free elections.

They just wanted to be in control of counting the votes.

8 ( +11 / -3 )

> Millions of conservatives as well as my friends and members in my family across the country absolutely don’t trust the mail in voting whatsoever and went to the polling stations to do it the old reliable and verified way.

But all of us here in Japan have no choice but to mail in our absentee ballots.

Why aren’t Trump’s people heeding his advice to try and vote twice?

6 ( +9 / -3 )

There are no polling stations in Japan? American expats need postal vote or a visit to the embassy. There is no Japan Post to America, currently. How are Americans in Japan voting?

7 ( +8 / -1 )

The main takeaway is that ~86% of Democrats have already voted, whereas only ~14% of registered Republicans have.

I don't understand your reasoning. Given that opinion polls suggest that a majority of the electorate will vote Biden and he will easily win the popular vote, your reasoning would suggest that over 65 million votes had already been cast for Biden. So not a "takeaway", poor calculation.

> That also ignores the elephant in the room , the "shy" Trump supporters who are not included in the polling numbers but are showing up at the Trump rallies in DROVES.

Although there is no statistical evidence for shy Trump supporters - I will give some credibility to this - I think that a relatively high percentage of those declaring as "don't know" in polling will be Trump voters. In states where the Biden lead is narrow, I think Trump may get in.

However, I think it is extremely unlikely that that those same people are then attending Trump rallies. The rally goers are the true Trump fans.

Headline of the day “White House signals defeat in pandemic as outbreak roils Pence’s office”

Medows says We can’t contain this virus. Rounding the corner indeed.

No Mark, YOU can’t contain the virus because you’re complicit. That’s why your going to be voted out quite soon.

6 ( +8 / -2 )

How are the 55,000 Americans living in Japan voting? Seems like a mixture, according to which state, mail/fax/email. Otherwise sending to embassy for mailing in diplomatic bags.

@bass4funk

how did you vote?

GOP slowly gaining as early vote total surpasses 2016

Well, I'd have to say that's true...

Given all the Repubs at the Rose Garden super-spreader event and now five in Pence's office, they're definitely leading in the "we have COVID" race...

Winning!

5 ( +7 / -2 )

Whoever wins, this has turned out to be the most fascinating election ever. Am enjoying every minute of it, particularly on Japan Today. Quite unlike anything I or anyone has ever seen before. And election day may be far from the end of things if Trump declares the election rigged.

But it is sad how utterly divided the country has become

5 ( +8 / -3 )

Dems are nowhere near far enough ahead at this point compared to last time (which they also lost)

-9 ( +3 / -12 )

Um, no. According to Harry Enron, Biden is far ahead of where Clinton was in 16. And Trump is not catching up to Biden where as at this point in 16 Trump was closing ground on Clinton.

Facts, as they say, are hard things to overcome. And basing your hopes on ridiculous conspiracy theories is not a sound strategy.

6 ( +9 / -3 )

Zichi,

It varies by state. My home state of Kansas has told us that mail-in ballots have zero chance of making it in time.

We can send ballots via e-mail, scan or fax. We have to also submit a waiver waiving the right to a secret ballot. I also included a copy of my passport and valid KS driver’s license just to be safe.

bass4funk: Millions of conservatives as well as my friends and members in my family across the country absolutely don’t trust the mail in voting whatsoever and went to the polling stations to do it the old reliable and verified way.

Awesome. I mailed mine in. I've checked my state's tracking website to confirm that my vote was received and counted.

I hope your family enjoyed the COVID exposure and waiting in line.

thanks for the reply. Still no Japan Post to America. I've been waiting to send my New York brother a packet. UPS and FedX too expensive. Waiting for EMS to return. You would think with all the half empty planes the post would still get delivered.

There are a number of proposals that could be affecting voter intentions. How Presidential candidates’ policies are reflected in the polls is difficult to ascertain/analyze.

Both Presidential debates did not really cut to the heart to consequences of both President Trump or Joe Biden tax proposals/policies

Especially Joe Biden.

So, it might be smart to view below a detailed analysis.

Details and Analysis of Democratic Presidential Nominee Joe Biden’s Tax Plan

https://taxfoundation.org/joe-biden-tax-plan-2020/

Both President Trump or Joe Biden will not be able to expect the same tax revenue from Big Tech, Google, Apple, Facebook, Amazon.

The EU, plus at least 8 member states will be leveraging tax on all four global revenues. A forecast of between 3/5 % would be feasible assumption.

This will reduce all four balance significantly.

Impacting Joe Biden and Donald Trumps ability to raise tax.

So, I would expect Joe Biden's pledge to peg the revenue changes at $400,000, to change significantly.

Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden would enact a number of policies that would raise taxes on individuals with income above $400,000, including raising individual income, capital gains, and payroll taxes. Biden would also raise taxes on corporations by raising the corporate income tax rate and imposing a corporate minimum book tax.

It is perfectly conceivable, that $400,000  number will land in the realms of between $150/200,000.

If they got it they’ll be fine as the numbers are showing. Don’t give in to the fear.

Love how the people who had a supposed 92% chance to win (but lost) again try to claim there aren’t Trump voters just waiting until Election Day to go vote.

-3 ( +9 / -12 )

Don’t give in to the fear.

Are you going to mai in your vote again?

4 ( +10 / -6 )

yak yak,

In 2016, 125 million votes were cast. In 2020, we are on track for between 150-160 million. As the GOP is the party of voter suppression, there is no universe in which this is good news for Trump.

Did he magically get more popular to the tune of 12.5 to 15 million assuming, (and this is a BIG assumption) that 1/2 of the extra votes are his?

The data says no. Trump has never cracked a greater than 50% approval rating in 4 years as president. Not once! He is currently 22 points under water. This would strongly imply that a majority of the extra votes are for Biden

The GOP has openly tried to suppress the vote because it’s the only way Don wins. Slow down the postal system, launch multiple - mostly unsuccessful lawsuits, cut down on polling locations, attempt to intimidate voters in early voting, limit drop-off boxes, etc., etc., etc.....

And it’s all failed. Fortunately, Trump is as incompetent at voter suppression as he is at business, governance, and basic English syntax.

There will likely be 25-35 million more voters this year. Trump’s population of voters is declining. That spells bad news for the GOP up and down the ballot.

0 ( +10 / -10 )

You really think that 80 million people will vote for Joe Biden? Suuuuure.

-2 ( +8 / -10 )

Are you going to mai in your vote again?

Done.

1 ( +8 / -7 )

In the meantime, former VP Biden has yet again 'called a lid' on the day's campaigning. This may be a wise strategy politically, but it really doesn't bode well for a future potential Biden presidency. You don't get to 'call a lid' on world affairs or crises.

-3 ( +5 / -8 )

Black,

regardless of what the final number actually is, all signs point to both a popular vote and Electoral College victory.

And just to head you off there, this is not 16, Joe is running above 50% and is above water, and Trump has proven himself woefully inept.

No amount of snark is going to change that, but as the available data is against you, I guess that’s all you have left.

3 ( +9 / -6 )

Biden isn't Clinton when it comes to likeability. And there's no FBI announcement in the last week of the campaigning about an investigation. FiveThirtyEight said that tossed the election to Trump.

Not impossible for Trump to win, but nothing like Clinton.

4 ( +10 / -6 )

There is simply no way that Joe Biden will get 54% of a national vote of 150 million people who will supposedly vote.

you are seriously telling me that there are millions of New voters who were not willing to vote for Hillary against Trump but will come out and vote for Joe?

He is down with Black voters, down with Hispanic voters and the 10% more Dem voters than Republicans that the polls use is simply inaccurate.

-3 ( +7 / -10 )

you are seriously telling me that there are millions of New voters who were not willing to vote for Hillary against Trump but will come out and vote for Joe?

Millions of people were not of age during the last election. I hope this has been helpful.

4 ( +10 / -6 )

Sneezy is right. Anyone who was between the ages of 14 and 17 in 2016 will be of legal age to vote in 2020.

7 ( +10 / -3 )

And these young people will vote for Biden enough to give him another 15 million votes more than Trump gets? Sure thing.

-8 ( +4 / -12 )

Yes. that is what I am telling you. Perhaps not 54%, but Joe is on track to win the popular and electoral college.

And, no. Joe is not “down” with African Americans or Hispanics (or women, or college educated whites, or seniors, or Gen Z....I could go on). In fact he is winning EVERY age, race and gender demographic other than non-college educated white men (desperately trying not to make the obvious observation here...)

Quite simply, for you to be right, EVERY high-quality poll for the last year would have to be wrong. Every job approval survey would have to be wrong, OR a majority of those that disapprove would have to turn around and vote for him which is laughable on its face.

In addition, according to those pesky scientific polls you so abhor, EVEN if Trump ran the table (which is highly unlikely) in FL, IA, GA, AZ, NC and OH (Fun fact: Biden is leading in 5 of the 6 albeit narrowly), he would still be 14 EC votes short He would have to flip PA, or WI and MI. Bad news for Trump (and you), Joe’s lead is outside the margin of error in all three and seems remarkably stable.

I suppose things could magically change in the coming days. I suppose that I could also become a space shuttle pilot Both are equally likely.

4 ( +9 / -5 )

And these young people will vote for Biden enough to give him another 15 million votes more than Trump gets? Sure thing.

No, I don't think that.

2 ( +5 / -3 )

Honestly, because of electoral college the number of voters doesn't matter in solid blue and solid red states. They will be their respective colors regardless. It's the swing states and light blue/light red states that matter the most.

So even if "another 15 million votes" are added, if they're democratic votes in California or New York, or republican votes in Texas or Mississippi, they won't matter. If those votes are cast in Florida, Ohio, Pennsylvania, etc. they can tip the election one way or another.

Sneezy,

Including both of my daughters, both of whom have voted.

Unlike previous generations, Gen-Z is not only the most educated and ethnically diverse in American history; they are also the most politically engaged. This makes “some people” very nervous...

*The Trump administration signaled on Sunday** that it had given up on controlling the spread of the coronavirus, even as Covid-19 makes its second run through the White House, three in four Americans are concerned that they or someone they know will contract the disease, and millions of American families are suffering as negotiators struggle to clinch an elusive relief deal.*

egads man,

You are very correct. The electoral college is all that matters. As I mentioned below, Biden is leading (albeit narrowly) in 5 of the 6 current battleground states In addition, he is leading beyond the margin of error in all 3 “blue wall” states

If as you pondered, all the extra votes were coming in NY, CA, MA etc., it would not matter. But again, the pesky pesky data indicates that a very large part of the additional votes (vs 16) are coming in FL, GA, PA, NC. There is no scenario in which this is good news for Trump.

Is that the new liberal talking point for this week?

They don’t have to announce it, but the assigned case number is evidence of that already

Well, the Dems didn’t do a massive mail in voting campaign like this year.

It’s quite easy for Trump to win all these states: FL, IA, GA, AZ, NC and OH. I’m amazed that Dems think he won’t.

Jimizo that's right... Trump did nothing on world affairs.

Except get 3 muslim countries to make peace with Israel.

Except sign a new trade deal with Canada and Mexico.

Except bring American troops home.

Except move the US Embassy in Israel to the actual capital of the country.

Except start relations with North Korea (seen any missiles fly overhead lately?).

Except make the other NATO countries pay their fair share for collective defense.

Except kill several high profile terrorists (al-Baghdadi, enjoy your time in hell).

If it’s so easy, why is he losing 5 out of 6 and up by a single point in OH?

Polls are wrong, oversampled Democrats. Just like in 2016. Didn’t Trump win all those states last time?

this week you will see all the national polls go down from 10 to 14 point leads to 5 or less. So that the polls can claim they weren’t so wrong when Trump wins.

-4 ( +3 / -7 )

Jimizo that's right... Trump did nothing on world affairs

Your claim is that Biden wouldn’t get anything done because he ‘calls a lid‘ on things. Everyone calls a lid on things. Don’t you? Trump heads out to the golf course, holds bioterror events and tweets idiocy and trash.

Biden might have a cup of tea instead.

3 ultra rich countries. It's all about the resources.

Except sign a new trade deal with Canada and Mexico.

And renege on other deals that benefited the whole world, not just the Americas.

Except bring American troops home.

Nope, still all over the place. Especially here.

Except move the US Embassy in Israel to the actual capital of the country.

Jerusalem is a highly significant place to Palestinians and it was completely insensitive to do so. This will sadly have repercussions some time down the road.

Except start relations with North Korea (seen any missiles fly overhead lately?).

Yup. Not literally, obviously, because most people here don't get to see them close up.

https://www.bbc.com/news/world-asia-51701731

They're still building and launching missiles.

Except make the other NATO countries pay their fair share for collective defense.

This hasn't happened, though. And since the US likes to remind us that it's the leader of the free world etc, the leader should shoulder the burden. Given also that it starts or has a hand in most conflicts.

Except kill several high profile terrorists (al-Baghdadi, enjoy your time in hell).

Not to mention former allies like Soleiani.

And allowing MBS to get away with murdering a journalist.

Vote this terrorist out of the White House.

Ah, the polls are wrong! How could I be so thoughtless.....

After 4 years of professional pollsters adjusting their models to account for 16 (when they were within the margin of error anyway), sampling, testing, tweaking, taking into account sampling bias....

Every high quality poll conducted over the last year is wrong. It’s all so clear now!

And the job approval ratings and favorable impression ratings: ALL WRONG! Trump has never reached 50% in 4 years and is currently 22 PTs. Under water (Yet another fun fact(s) Biden is above water by a point which Hillary never was AND is at 50% or more in several of the battleground states.). They are all some kind of SUPER-DUPER Deep State.....

Yeah, that makes TOTAL sense.

Actually, it might be better if Biden DID call a lid on foreign affairs if/when he gets elected. He has been wrong on virtually every foreign affairs issue since he got to Washington.

Voter suppression is the wholly-owned subsidiary of the GOP. From the activist Scalia decision striking down the bi-partisanly approved voter rights act (so much for legislative deference...), to laughed out of court challenges over counting mail-in ballots, a freak-show PR scam on non-existent voter fraud, to limiting drop boxes to one per county regardless of population.

One party wants to make it easier for all Americans to vote because that’s representative Democracy. One party wants to make it harder to vote (and says so out loud) because when minorities and less wealthy Americans vote, they lose.

Fortunately, Trump is as incompetent at voter suppression as he is at business, negotiations, governing or basic English syntax.

It's interesting that this election is heading for a record turnout, but only a 65% turnout of eligible voters.

Wouldn't it make more sense that, if the polls are skewed, they're skewed for democrats in order to get more republicans out and vote, therefore the polls are heavily biased toward republicans.

Don't you think a higher democrat polling rate would instead make democrats complacent? If the polls were supposedly democrat sympathizers, wouldn't they skew the polls to be in favor of republicans in order to wake democrats out of complacency and go out to vote?
