    Four hundred thirty-three days till Election Day.

    As Trump policies deepen farmers' pain, Democrats see an opening in rural America
    Seizing on mounting Farm Belt frustration with President Donald Trump's economic agenda, Democratic rivals are stepping up their push to take back part of rural America, whose overwhelming support for Trump helped propel his upset 2016 election victory.

    A new poll shows Trump would lose to Biden in a head-to-head matchup. He would lose to Sanders. He would lose to Warren. He would lose to Harris. He would lose to Buttigieg. Trump is hoping the Democratic nominee will be Andrew Yang, who has proposed fighting climate change by having giant mirrors in space, to deflect sunlight away from earth.

    "Colored people" was a descriptive term for non-whites, a term coined in 1916. It has been replaced by "people of color." That sounds less offensive than "colored people" – but is it really? Why can't we just call people "people"? Anyway, Joe Biden is thinking about a running mate.

    Joe Biden says he'd prefer a running mate who is 'of color and/or a different gender'

    I think Elizabeth Warren should be Biden's running mate. If Biden wins and serves just one term, Warren would probably be the next president.

    ABC will televise the three-hour debate September 12. Only ten candidates met the requirements to qualify for the debate: A 2% showing in four national polls and 130,000 donors. On stage at Texas Southern University will be Biden, Sanders, Warren, Harris, Klobuchar, Booker, Buttigieg, Castro, O'Rourke and Yang.

    September Democratic debate will be one night only

    Mark Leibovich, chief national correspondent for The New York Times Magazine, provides a lengthy analysis of why Joe Biden is running for President. Leibovich concludes by asking: "Why not?" That's some hard-hitting journalism right there!

    Does Joe Biden want to be doing this?
    Why is Joe Biden running? Remarkably, after all this time, he stumbles to come up with a clear answer.

    Thanks to the 18th-century relic known as the Electoral College, a Presidential candidate can win the election even though his opponent receives more votes. It's happened five times so far. The votes in individual states are more important than the national vote. In 2016, Trump won Pennsylvania, Michigan, Wisconsin and Florida by one percentage point or less. Those four states could determine who wins in 2020. Many analysts think Wisconsin will be the key battleground state. Wisconsin holds its Democratic primary on April 7.

    "Being in the House minority with President Donald Trump in the White House just isn't a lot of fun," writes CNN's Chris Cillizza. They can't pass legislation and Trump has cost the Republican party the support of "critical constituencies, including suburban women and Hispanics." Fourteen House Republicans (so far) have announced they will not run for re-election in 2020. Two are running for other offices. The other 12 are just quitting. Many more could follow.
