    George F. Will, Washington Post columnist and NBC/MSNBC commentator, quit the Republican party in 2016 when it became clear Donald Trump would be the Presidential nominee. Will has harsh words for the "malignant buffoon" in the White House and the Congressional Republicans who have sacrificed their dignity and their principles and now serve as Trump's enablers. They all need to go, he declares.

    King Donald the First is opposed to vote-by-mail. He claims all the illegals will vote. That is false. He claims there will be rampant voter fraud. That is false. He claims vote-by-mail will favor Democrats. That is false. Of course King Donald himself voted by mail – after he finally came up with a "place of residence" that Florida would accept.

    Trump attempted to register to vote in Florida last year using the White House address
    CNN, Jun 3 2020 3:36 PM ET

    President Donald Trump last year attempted to register to vote in Florida while claiming that his "legal residence" was in Washington DC, The Washington Post reported today. Trump has demonized mail-in voting as rife with fraud and an attempt at swaying elections toward Democrats – claims that aren't based in fact – as governors seek to expand remote voting amid the coronavirus pandemic. Trump himself voted by mail in Florida's Presidential primary contest earlier this year, even though he bypassed several opportunities to vote in-person.

    The President initially listed his legal residence as the White House on a Florida voter registration application filed in September 2019. On one of his forms, he told Florida officials his "legal residence" was in Washington, while writing on another that he was a "bona fide resident" of Palm Beach. However, Florida law requires its voters to be legal residents of the state. The form also warns that it's a third-degree felony to submit false information, with maximum penalties of $5,000 and/or five years in prison. Trump resubmitted his voter registration application a month later, listing the address of his Mar-a-Lago resort as his legal residence.

    European sportsbook Ladbrokes gives Florida Congresswoman Val Demings 5-1 odds to be Joe Biden's running mate. Elizabeth Warren is at 6-1 odds. Kamla Harris, even though she doesn't have much support among blacks, is the favorite, with odds of 5-4 – and her chances seem to be improving. Hurry up and decide, Joe!

    "This is a difficult time in America’s history," said Biden, stating the obvious. "And Donald Trump's angry, divisive politics is no answer. The country is crying out for leadership. Leadership that can unite us. Leadership that can bring us together." One hundred fifty days till election day.

    A new CNN poll of registered voters shows Joe Biden leading Trump by 14 points. Our nation's Tweeter-In-Chief responded: “CNN Polls are as Fake as their Reporting. Same numbers, and worse, against Crooked Hillary. The Dems would destroy America!" Yes, King Donald continues to call CNN "fake," continues to call Hillary "crooked" and continues to attack Democrats. Is anyone surprised? One hundred forty-eight days till election day.

    Granted, a lot can change in the next five months – but the future of the party of racists, bigots, xenophobes and wealthy white men (and a few whom I assume are "good people") is not looking very favorable right now.

    Analysis: Here's a number that should terrify every Republican on the ballot this fall
    CNN, Jun 8 2020 4:24 PM ET

    With all the focus on a slew of new polls that show President Donald Trump falling further behind former Vice President Joe Biden, one number has largely slipped through the cracks and it is a blaring warning signal to Republicans on the ballot this fall: 51% of registered voters said they would prefer a Congress controlled by Democrats in 2021, while just 40% preferred a Republican-controlled Congress, according to a new Wall Street Journal-NBC poll released Sunday. That marks a change in Democrats' favor from January when the party had just a 6-point edge over the GOP.

    When you combine this poll with national and swing state polling on the Presidential race, the clear concern coming out of the White House in regard to the state of the Senate and the massive financial edge for House Democrats over their GOP counterparts, you begin to see the making of a Democratic landslide – if the political environment remains roughly the same in November as it is today.

    King Donald the First is the supreme ruler of Trumpworld, the topsy-turvy land of delusions where bad is good, down is up, wrong is right and lies are truth. King Donald also worships himself – and his galaxy-sized ego will never allow him to believe there are Americans who don't love him as much as he loves himself. Any poll that says otherwise is fake. It just has to be.

    Trump campaign demands CNN apologize for poll that shows Biden leading
    CNN, Jun 10 2020 5:02 PM ET

    President Donald Trump's campaign is demanding CNN retract and apologize for a recent poll that showed him well behind presumptive Democratic Presidential nominee Joe Biden. The demand, coming in the form of a cease and desist letter to CNN President Jeff Zucker that contained numerous incorrect and misleading claims, was immediately rejected by the network. "We stand by our poll," said Matt Dornic, a CNN spokesman.

    The CNN poll conducted by SSRS and released on Monday shows Trump trailing the former Vice President by 14 points, 55%-41%, among registered voters. It also finds the President's approval rating at 38%, his worst mark since January 2019 and roughly on par with approval ratings for one-term Presidents Jimmy Carter and George H.W. Bush at this point in their reelection years, and his disapproval rating at 57%.

    In the letter to Zucker signed by senior legal adviser Jenna Ellis and chief operating officer Michael Glassner, the Trump campaign argued that the CNN poll is "designed to mislead American voters through a biased questionnaire and skewed sampling. It's a stunt and a phony poll to cause voter suppression, stifle momentum and enthusiasm for the President and present a false view generally of the actual support across America for the President." The campaign formally requested that CNN retract the poll and publish a "full, fair, and conspicuous retraction, apology and clarification to correct its misleading conclusions." David Vigilante, CNN's executive vice president and general counsel, told the campaign that its "allegations and demands are rejected in their entirety."

    The Presidency of the United States is arguably the most important position in the world. It is also the only US political office that is not decided by popular vote. On five occasions, the 18th-century relic known as the Electoral College has disregarded the will of the people and awarded the office to a candidate who lost the popular vote. CNN today unveiled its 2020 Electoral College map. To win the Presidency, a candidate needs 270 electoral votes. Adding up the electoral votes from states that are supporting a particular candidate or leaning in his direction, CNN projects 205 electoral votes for Trump and 232 for Biden. Arizona, Florida, Michigan, North Carolina, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin have a combined 101 electoral votes and those six states will likely decide the election.

    A majority of the protesters in DC hate Donald Trump but many do not like Joe Biden either – so they won't bother voting. Lovely.

    At DC protests, opposition to Trump doesn't always translate to support for Biden
    Yahoo News, Jun 11 2020 6:53 PM

    The protests that have erupted nationwide in the wake of the May 25 death of George Floyd have combined expressions of anger toward President Trump with calls for police reform and a push to address systemic racism. Yet, even as protesters gather on Trump's doorstep, many in the crowds are reluctant to embrace his Democratic rival, former Vice President Joe Biden. The ambivalence about Biden, and the Trump campaign's attempts to capitalize on it, is part of a larger dynamic playing out in the Presidential race, where razor-thin margins in swing states could determine who wins the national election. In those states, it may not be enough for voters to dislike Trump; they have to be willing to go to the polls and vote for Biden, and some at the protests say they won't do so.
