Do you think the increase in early voting numbers amongst this particular demographic is a good or a bad omen for Trump?

Regardless of whatever party you support, I reckon it's a great thing that folks in that demographic are getting out and voting. With the absolute polar opposites that are apparent over the past 4 years and an overly small percentage of qualified voters having voted back in 2016 I think this shows that every age group is in play for this election.

Its either going to be REALLY close or he will win. The electoral college system will help him.


If its really close he will hang on for dear life. I think the GOP will help him ....his life is their life. And they are loving the facism.

Oh absolutely. They have tied themselves to his Presidency so completely that if he losses it will hurt the GOP in a manner that hasn't happened for many many years. And if he does win the next four years, folks will need to deal with that. They will also need to deal with the further disintegration of the US and the position of the President and all that goes along with it.

It wasn’t a pleasant day today, damp, cold and drizzling.

Yet, there was a big queue outside the polling station where they take early votes.

Honestly, it was all Trumpers. Hats, stupid jackets and flags... thought it all very strange.

No reflection of America as a whole, but an indication to me that this is not over until the fat lady sings.

That is going to happen whoever is president.

Having one good man as president doesn't mean the rest of the country isn't regressing.

Sounds like a general Irish weather day man. Good folks are getting out to vote though. The overall engagement in this voting cycle seems like it's going to be higher than it has been in some time.

I get where you are coming from, but right now with all going on I reckon we could do with a bit of balance in the world. Biden may not be everyone's cup of tea, but it would be nice to not spend the next four years trying to figure out the direction the US is going to take from Twitter.

Not questioning your support either way. I agree that this is a chance that President Trump will once again win.

That's not to say they will win either the house or senate even if he does. The polls seem to show a pretty massive sweep to blue.

If by chance, or through the courts he wins it back, I think the Democrats if they win the house and senate need to do the same as the GOP did to President Obama.

Biden is the most uninspiring candidate I've seen in my lifetime. Typical career politician who has achieved bugger all and now thinks he deserves to be president. Pretty appalling choice overall. Surely the Democrats could put forward a more energetic, charismatic candidate than this? If they had the result would be beyond doubt.

I think a lot of folks would agree with some of what you are saying. But with all that has been going on, I don't believe that the democrats would be anywhere near the position they are with a more progressive candidate. I think right now a little stability is needed. And while Joe Biden may not be exciting, I think he may be the balance that is needed right now.

Doesn't matter who the democrats would have put forward, Trump would still win in a landslide.

I just don't think he will inspire the undecideds to vote for him or for people to get off the couch to go and vote. He is dull. Of course all the Trump haters will vote for him but it's more a vote against Trump than for Biden. They'd vote for whatever Democrat that was running. I'm just not sure Biden captures the imagination of the swing voters much. It really wouldn't surprise me if Biden loses this. He's been a bit media shy lately especially since the Hunter Biden story came out. If the mainstream media and social media giants weren't so anti-Trump and pro Biden I really don't think he'd be in the running at all.

This is significant. Are you against improving relations between Jews and Muslims?
