. I get 3-4 texts per day from his campaign or PACs supporting him. Can't seem to get off of that list, unfortunately.


I've been working on Election campaigns since year dot. They're sending those to you because your name is on their list of likely supporters.

Just give in and get on the bandwagon. :lol
Don't they take someone off a list when it's clear they made a mistake?

I get nonstop calls from John James and Trump from (231) and (989) area codes. My guess is someone is making calls from Petoskey's(TC Shuts Up) basement.
Calls or texts? I got calls just before the primary on behalf of an awful city council candidate.
I got a few texts earlier in the week, one from Biden and one from John James. These are calls on my landline. Yes, I still have a landline.

I often work the phone banks. If we call someone whose name is on the list and it turns out they aren't a supporter we stroke off the name, so we don't waste time calling them again.

The job isn't to change people's minds, Just to rally our supporters to get out and vote.


During the middle ages they celebrated the end of the plague with wine and orgies. Does anyone know if there is anything planned when this one ends?

I haven't gotten ANY Republican contacts this cycle. I typically have to vote in the Dem primary for city elections, so MAYBE that is how they have my info?

Probably. I have voted in both primaries(GOP when I voted for Kasich in 2016) recently. Plus, I know I still get phone calls from the young Republicans because of when I did phone banking for Bushy in 2004.

I have had a few people tell me there is a sure fire way to get your number off the telemarketers computers.
Download a file with the three tones in the link below, and put those tones at the beginning of your voice mail message. You don't need to put anything else, just the three tones, then have your voicemail say whatever you want.

When the telemarketers computer hears those tones, it automatically registers your phone number as out of service, and deletes the number from their database.

Like I said, I can't personally vouch this works, but I've had a few folks tell me it does.

Just like 4 years ago, right?
Biden’s lead is over twice Hillary’s at this point in 2016. 2016 and 2020 look nothing alike.

Pollster boy is fake news -

Trump-Hillary was a 12 point polling difference later in the cycle last time: https://www.cnn.com/2016/10/23/politics ... index.html

Trump-Biden is currently an RCP average of 9.8 today: https://www.realclearpolitics.com/epoll ... -6247.html

Interesting conversation yesterday. Should the moderator have told Pence about the fly?

Sorry I should have said the Election Day. After the emails...
In 2016,
@FiveThirtyEight
's final polling average was Clinton 45.7%, Trump 41.8%. Today, it's Biden 52.2%, Trump 41.9%.

But beyond deficit, even more damning for Trump is the 5.9% undecided/3rd party share - less than half of 12.5% share four years ago. Far fewer late deciders.

Biden doesn’t have any skeletons to provide this kind of surprise that’ll cause him to sink like a stone.

But you’re also comparing the RCP average to an individual poll. That won’t work. Find the RCP average and get back to us.

The big problem Trump has is that 2016 was his ceiling for votes. If people didn't vote for him in 2016, has 4 years of mismanagement caused them to change their minds? Nope!

That’s the biggest problem.. he can only afford to lose 77,000 votes out of 61 million. I don’t like those odds.

Watched the SNL spoof of the VP debate. Strangely Beck Bennett’s rendition of the overly smarmy, unholy Pence seemed more human than the real Mike Pence. Pitiful!!!!

And when Mother waddled over in her high heels minus her mask — their twosome looked comically arrogant ppl
