Agreed, although Charlie Cook (Someone I trust) has updated his forecast of Florida and Nevada (Although I am a bit more hopeful about Nevada) ...

Nevada/Florida going Right.

I feel that Harris/Biden can win Nevada, but as per Florida, I feel that the state will be stolen again from Dems.

Electoral College Rating Changes: Florida and Nevada Shift Right.

Today we are making two ratings changes in Pres. Trump's favor, moving Florida from Lean Democrat to Toss Up, and Nevada from Likely Democrat to Lean Democrat.

Biden's Electoral College lead has narrowed to 279 to 187 for Trump. Earlier this summer, Biden held a 308 to 187 lead.

Supposedly, there were some problems with Biden's hispanic outreach team in Florida - forgot where I read it, but it didn't sound good.

correlation between "payroll tax" and social security, particularly among younger people, but, believe it or not, I have also spoken with people already drawing their social security who don't understand it.

I've seen the ads start running in NC on SS and Medicare but I think we need to run one big ad that says, "when Donald Trump says he's going to eliminate payroll tax, this is what that means".

Are not going to be responsible for super spreader events. I can't think of a bigger draw than Obama wherever he goes. So I don't know how the campaign is going to go, but I'm sure we'll campaign in all Battleground States
