Was curious to see how Defund the Police and George Floyd unrest would play out here. Trump is playing it up and fear mongering to drive people back to his tent. Wouldn’t count him out here. Frightening.

Good luck in Minnesota.
In my old job, I had to travel to some of the rural areas of the state and they are as deplorable as deplorable can be. Minneapolis and Duluth are different stories of course.

Minnesota has always been a high turnout state so either side will need to get out the vote to win.

R7, you should study before speaking. The average of the recent polls show Trump surging in Minnesota to make it a very close race. Not even Democratic pundits are pretending otherwise. Study more, post less.

If Trump wins Minnesota, R10, it won't have anything to do with Klobachar, it'll be because of the riots and the defund the police movement. Like I said before, Minnesota, (outside of Minneapolis), is filled with deplorables, and even in the city, there are a lot of shy Republicans (or so colleague of mine says), who are progressives on the surface but got freaked out by the protests.Of course, those people are mostly suburban whites.

The question is how have Twin City suburbs responded to the George Floyd situation. They determine the outcome of Minnesota elections. Trump has been going to Minnesota a lot. Biden and Democrats need to be in Minnesota every chance they get
|by Anonymous||reply 13||08/20/2020|
Trump explicitly made Minnesota a priority even before George Floyd, and every chance he gets, he is there wooing the state or talking about it. We need not be outmatched again in campaigning for states.

The perception that Jacob Frey and Governor Walz botched the unrest response is hurting Democrats in general in Minnesota. Walz ultimately rose to the challenge, but Frey has remained rather feckless.

The race is going to tighten as we get closer to Election Day, so this should be expected.
States that were close in 2016 are going to be close again. Rural areas across the country are by and large Republican strongholds, regardless of WHERE the rural area is.
In 2016 Trump's campaign publicized the fact that there were unofficial "pop-up" campaign headquarters all over Minnesota from supporters, and he did very well with the kind of voter who liked Jesse Ventura because he was an outsider. He's been playing that up since 2016 and continues to do so now.
Minnesota is going to be a difficult state for Democrats to win. Our saving grace may be all the other states Trump has slipped significantly in.

The Texas governor is pushing a bill that won't give cities money if they defund the police. Expect all the Repubs to do this. Earth to the Democrats....defunding the police is a suicide.

The fact that Trump has a snowball's chance in hell is why I have basically given up on this country. How so many people can have lived this nightmare for the past three years and be absolutely fine with it is so disheartening. Even if Biden wins (and the Democrats take the Senate), there will always be a sizable population that will remain with their unchanging, deplorable views. And since more level-headed people can't seem to be bothered to vote EVERY SINGLE GODDAMN ELECTION, the Repugnants will just end up taking back control of something in 2022.

Okay, you guys are pretty much pushing the Trump anti-Biden ad lies about defunding the police, then shrieking at the Democrats for not doing anything about it.
At some point, it's on you for believing the lies. The Democrats can't stop you guys from being hysterical concern trolls.
Every major news site has spent months reminding people that Biden did NOT support defunding the police, and he has repeatedly and firmly said so.
He has a detailed plan on increasing community-based policing as opposed to Federally-backed policing.

President Donald Trump has built an apparent lead over former Vice President Joe Biden in Georgia after two weeks of political conventions, strengthening his position in a state that’s crucial to his re-election chances, according to a poll released Tuesday by Channel 2 Action News.
The poll, conducted by Landmark Communications, shows Trump ahead of Biden, 48% to 41%. About 2% of Georgians support Libertarian Jo Jorgensen, while 9% are undecided.

The survey points to formidable advantages for Georgia Republicans, who have won every statewide race for more than a decade and carried the state in every White House contest since 1996, including Trump’s 5-point win in 2016.
Explore Democrats press to go on offensive in 2020 Georgia race Trump led Biden among voters older than 40 and had a 20-point edge among men. He also amassed more support among core Republican voters (87%) than Biden had among Democrats (78%). And he led 50% to 38% with voters who had watched both political conventions over the past two weeks.
“It’s a statistically significant change. Basically, the GOP consolidated behind Trump. They appeared to like the message from the convention,” said Mark Rountree, the president of Landmark. “It just looks to me like the RNC made a big difference.”

“It’s probably all temporary — a convention bounce. But it shows there’s room for Trump to go up,” Rountree said, nodding to the roughly one-third of independents who still haven’t decided. “I’d put Georgia in the lean Republican category

There is nothing that can be done. If you see social unrest in the cities and protesters lined up against police officers and buildings on fire, Republicans are going to take Minnesota, Wisconsin, and Pennsylvania. It doesn’t matter why the protesters are there, it doesn’t matter how righteous they are, it doesn’t matter how horrible whatever the police did was, the imagery is unsettling for the voters who matter in deciding these races. These protests would be fine at any other point in the election cycle other than within weeks of a presidential Election Day.

Exactly, R130. Voters don't care about the nuance/truth of who's really being violent, etc. They see fires and violence, and they run to the more conservative, authoritarian figure.

The fringe left actually don’t want Dems to win because they want shit to get burned down. They think society will only change (to hardcore leftist government) when it gets fucked up by regressive repug policies. Never mind that leftist governments are just as totalitarian and inept.
These leftist loons also want to keep Trump in power because they want proof that this country is fucked up, so as to justify cancel culture and political purity when the hardcore left does take power.
There’s no way that Dems at this point can control or rein them in because Dem PTBs have been placating these idiots for awhile now, thinking they’ll eventually help out the Dems. But no, give them sympathy and they’ll want more, more in the form of crazy demands. Then if you don’t give in or support these demands, you become just as bad as Trump and need to be purged too.

Interesting. I don’t have children, but many of my friends and neighbors do. I’m also in suburban Philadelphia, and people around here want their kids back in in school. So some resorted to enrolling their kids in private and catholic schools, now you can’t even get your kid in. They are completely full. St . Katherine Drexel was one of the first to announce they would be doing in person learning - the school was completely full within new admissions within 48 hours of the announcement, -parents that are non Catholics are sending their kids there just because they are open for in person learning.
Even Newton athletic club opened up a “school” where they have teachers oversee kids online learning - they group the kids by grade and school district. They also have recreation and provide extra morning and afternoon childcare outside of school hours for parents that need it. Of course that isn’t cheap but parents are desperate. Then of course the parents that just hire full time baby sitter to help with online learning while they work.
But yeah - where in suburban philly this is the last thing on you and your neighbors mind?.... it’s a pretty big deal where I am , in suburban philly.
Fortunately I dont have kids - so it is actually the last thing on my mind.

“President Trump’s campaign is currently planning to spend more money on advertising in Minnesota than in either Wisconsin or Michigan during the final stretch of the 2020 race, a significant shift in strategy as its path to 270 electoral votes narrows,” McClatchy reports.
“Trump’s campaign is slated to pour more than $14 million into Minnesota between the beginning of September through Election Day, compared to $12.6 million in Michigan and $8.3 million in Wisconsin, according to Advertising Analytics, a media tracking firm. The sums include ads booked to run on TV, radio and online.”
“It’s a reversal from the previous three months, when the president’s campaign had devoted more money to Michigan and Wisconsin, two Upper Midwest battlegrounds that Trump surprisingly carried in 2016, but where he has seen his standing slip.”

That’s good to hear. We need Wisconsin more than Minnesota. In fact we could lose Minnesota and make up for it with a win in Arizona.
Now I’m fully confident that Joe will win Minnesota but it just goes to show that Joe has all these paths to 270 while Trump’s road becomes narrower and narrower. Joe is also going on offense in every battleground state while Trump is forced to pick and choose areas. The walls are closing in.

Minnesota police group pulls Democratic endorsements after candidate beats effigy of police union president
A powerful Minnesota police group is pulling its endorsements of several Democrat state legislators after a Democrat Farmer-Labor candidate shouted “Blue lives ain’t s--t” outside Minneapolis Police Federation President Bob Kroll’s home.
The candidate was also filmed beating an effigy of Kroll and his wife in their own driveway.
The Minnesota Police and Peace Officers Association board voted this week to back Republican challengers instead of Democratic incumbents. The association, which represents more than 10,000 officers, had endorsed DFL candidates in both races.
Minneapolis state house candidate John Thompson stood outside the police union leader's home and and gave an expletive-laden speech to a crowd of Black Lives Matter demonstrators in August.
"Come on over here with your ‘Blue Lives Matter’ sign," he said. "Blue lives ain’t s—, and if people in Hugo don’t support black people, f— Hugo.”
One clip shows him saying “You think we give a f--k about burning Hugo down?” In another, he says “F--k Hugo.”
Ken Martin, the state’s DFL chairman, said the party doesn’t condone Thompson’s rhetoric but it is “grateful” for his work against racism.
Peters confirmed late Thursday to the Star Tribune that his board reversed course on several DFL endorsements, but declined to share the full list for publication. He said members of the police group wanted to see Democrats give a stronger condemnation of Thompson and because he targeted Kroll’s wife.

I posted a similar analysis from Minnesota about three weeks ago and was attacked by the left-wing as being a Russian bot.
A few weeks ago, I traveled to three swing states, including Minnesota, and concluded from my conversations and yard signs that Trump has a good chance to win these states. There is a silent majority along who when combined with the vocal Orangeman supporters, will push the liar to another 4-year term. I was also shocked to hear a number of people that voted for Trump the first time and are having remorse. However, they will not vote for Biden so they plan to vote for any third-party candidate as a protest vote.
Again I will be attacked by those that live in their bubble where they only read or listen to left-wing sources. The energy needs to be directed to getting Biden supporters and those that despise the liar out to vote or this election is over.

BLM protests and looting all work together to scare voters into Trump's camp. Sad nobody can see this and ask them to stop it.

Bernie is saying Biden isn’t doing enough to get progressives and Latinos to vote.

Read the polls, r231. There is NO "Law and Order" swing toward Trump.
You're a desperate fool and 2020 isn't going to work out for the Republicans.

Why isn't Boris from r231 and r232 explaining the Minnesota polls showing Biden with a huge lead outside the margin of error?

That's great coming from someone who couldn't get anyone to vote for him.

R226 I believe you. It’s those relying solely on polls that aren’t “on the ground” that are detached.

Sir you are the same fucking concern troll that started the LA police shooting thread. Concern trolling does not = legitimate insight into anything other than how to be a fucking nuisance.

How much longer now before we hear that Trump is pulling back on his big $14 million Minnesota ad buy? The state is clearly Biden Country.

And there was probably never a single poll that actually showed Trump in the lead.
|by Anonymous||reply 240||09/13/2020|
You all really need to stop overthinking this.
This is all about $$$$. There probably never were any as buys. There was a company that orange poured campaign $$ into for "advertising". Ha!
That was a shell company to skim $$.
Honestly, people! There's a reason this fool blew through a billion dollars in campaign contributions. He's fucking stealing that $$ by "buying ads" in unwinnable states

R234, you're a fool. I just posted a front-page story from the Times re concerns about the race (the Bernie story). In a thread about concerns about the race.
You're one of the "Trump will be removed from office by January" dummies, right?

New Fox poll of LIKELY voters gives 48% Trump approval. Last poll in August gave 44% approval but using REGISTERED voters. Each poll is or soon will be switching to LIKELY voters.

R247 hopefully you didn't lose too much time from your crime threads or the Gone with the Wind thread, posting that bullshit.

Latest polling by A+ rated ABC/Washington Post has Biden +16 in Minnesota.

If MN falls, Biden needs to take Arizona to counter it.

Unless the poll above is incredibly, massively, unbelievably inaccurate, Biden will win MN.

r251 knows that.
He just wants to bump a misleading thread title about Biden-bound Minnesota.

R253, it’s September. A poll in September is not determinative of results on November 3.

Looks like Biden heard the call to action and is doing what he needs to do in Minnesota. The fact he is going to Minnesota shows he is no Hillary

R255, it's 47 days until the election. Biden's polling numbers have been pretty stable all through the campaign, so yeah, unless something incredibly awful happens (and with the Orange Fascist it still could), Biden isn't going to lose MN.
I don't think there's going to be a last minute Comey letter to swing the election this time.

R257 must not believe in refraining from saying stuff that tempts fate to make a fool of you. Sounds like the type of Jinx statement that people in the future will point to as evidence of foolish arrogance.

Minnesota has become a battle state...note how Biden and Trump are making visits. The final result will depend on how the vote goes in western MN (silent Trumpsters) and the Mesabi Coal Range (unemployed coal miners).

Because polls were correct in 2018 And the great majority of modern elections. That being said, the pertinent polls will not be at issue until late October and November 1 or so.

Yes indeed, we too use "cookies." Don't you just LOVE clicking on these things on every single site you visit? I know we do! You can thank the EU parliament for making everyone in the world click on these pointless things while changing absolutely nothing. If you are interested you can take a look at our privacy/terms or if you just want to see the damn site without all this bureaucratic nonsense, click ACCEPT and we'll set a dreaded cookie to make it go away. Otherwise, you'll just have to find some other site for your pointless bitchery needs.
