“Fat Tales” sounds like a euphemism for a Trump-like exaggeration of your financial status...

Re: Australian voting:
not sure if it's been mentioned, but apart from compulsory voting for all over 18, we (Australians) also have our state and national elections on a Saturday! Makes for a much easier process, as people don't need to take a mid-week day off work to vote.

Republicans don't try to win votes. They just try to stop people voting.

as senator whitehouse points out especially on day 2 of the barret nomination hearing, amy barret is one of a cabal of corrupt bought and owned senators and judges who are enslaving america.amy coney barrets main function is to throw out the votes of the american public if she gets in office to keep trump in the whitehouse to continue the enslavement of america by the ultra rich. shame on amy comey barret and her cohorts for trying to rig a presidential election and enslave america. they should all be arrested for treason. its pure corruption at the highest levels.

Hey Nate, it worries me when you refer to “election night.” Results on election night are never official results because it takes days to weeks to count all of the mail-in ballots! Just something to think about

Advocates for TRUMP are desperate to suggest they are catching up. I see no evidence whatever of that.

The thing is we can't even be excited or positive or optimistic about these polls because we're all scarred from 2016. So yeah :/ we just sit here and wait with trepidation
