Donald Trump is 26 days away from a real risk of losing his job. Even before the debate between Vice President Mike Pence and Joe Biden’s VP pick Kamala Harris, the presidential campaign has been falling down around the president. What if Florida went for the Biden-Harris ticket? It could happen, but Democrats can take nothing for granted.
Kevin Cate is a progressive consultant and “ad maker. He was a spokesperson for President Barack Obama. He just sent out a tweet about the state of Florida’s numbers, calling them “unprecedented:”
‘Latest vote by mail from Florida: DEM: 497,324 (19.9% returned) GOP: 269,817 (15.7%) N/3/I: 180,542 TOTAL: 947,683 That’s @FlaDems +227,507 (!!) (+52,860 from yesterday) All of this is unprecedented.’
Florida carries 270 Electoral College votes is what makes it such a desirable win. Then, there is Texas, which is not necessarily a solid Trump state. Senator Ted Cruz (R) came inches away from losing his seat to Beto O’Rourke (D), according to CNN:
‘Says that he raised $6.1 million in the first 24 hours of his presidential campaign, in what amounts to the largest first-day haul to date of any 2020 Democratic contender.’
In the latest week from hell, people saw that Trump was a gigantic tax cheat paying only $750 to the IRS last year. He owes $450 million to who knows whom? If it is Russia, that might explain why POTUS licks Russian President Vladimir’s boots so religiously.
During the first and possibly the last presidential debate, Americans could see how the rest of the world views Trump’s demeanor: angry, rude, out-of-control, and calling upon the most violent homegrown terrorists to seize the vote. Then, there are the 211,721 men, women, and children lying in their graves after struggling against the deadly coronavirus — all due to the president’s lack of management.
Moscow loves chaos. Trump frequently talks to Putin late at night, without any transcript available to the public. It would not be above the Russian president to wind up Trump and let him go. U.S. intelligence officials warn our country that Putin wants to confuse our people with wrong voting locations, wrong dates. But people are too smart to fall for that trick this time.
Will Trump take Florida? Older voters are pulling away from him, and this state has a large older-American population. They can see that this president has screwed up “bigly.”
Through his own negligence, this president has succumbed to the COVID-19. There are 15 people in the West Wing and in his campaign who have tested positive. The hallowed halls of the White House are eerily quiet.
The American voters know that this is a race for the life of our Democracy. So, we take nothing for granted. Intelligence says to “go out, participate, and be patient to learn the winner,” according to MSNBC’s MTP Daily with Chuck Todd People can look to their state Democratic Party for valid information.
Twitter world went nuts over a possible Florida win:
