Better Hang on to your Hat this week! As we head into the home straight, I'm expecting a wall of misinformation and lies to be unleashed in a last ditch attempt to get Trump over the line! He seems to have an uphill climb according to almost all sensible polls, and I'm seeing the 'sentiment analysis' systems adding to Biden's lead based on recent social media activity. Texas went marginally Blue for Biden in the last day or so, although its still on a knife-edge. I'm expecting a wipe-out of Trump's hold on Florida, as Seniors are turning against him in their droves. SO, the pre- and post- election shennanigans in Florida ought to be record- breaking as ever- more desperate voter suppression methods are called into play.

I'm expecting a ton of totally unverified (and indeed unverifiable) "Breaking News" reports on all manner of topics including new-found cures and now-available Covid vaccines, Hunter Biden drug-fuelled 'kompromat', Joe Biden 'Chyna' tangles as well as 'October Surprises' I can't even imagine.

Thankfully, such final week 'revelations' will have less of an effect on election outcomes, as so many votes are already in the box, and can no longer be changed. I foresee a lot of last-minute activity in the courts, aimed at disenfranchising minority voters and undermining postal and drop-in ballots, as well as legal manoeuverings to support interference in vote counting and results announcements.

Buckle Up, and believe nothing unless it's supported by iron-clad evidence. And buy the popcorn for the Count!

Nearly 60 million votes cast now. 80% of the 2016 total in Texas. The indicators are there for all who chose to see them.

Moderate and centrist elements of the Republican party?

Have you seen the Republican voting record last decade?

The entire Dem party are moderates, there are no extremists in the party that I'm aware of. Even the likes of AOC is a pretty moderate social democrat.

There may be no extremists similar to the republicans but theres a pretty wide range of views in the democrats so that in any other country that didnt have FPtP it would be at least 2 if not 3 separate parties
