it's not a cunning plan, it will have no effect.

any GOP-annoying bills passed in congress won't get a hearing in the senate and it has nothing to do with supreme court hearings. also as DWF says, he doesn't get ousted on nov 5 if he loses, which is hardly a guarantee in itself.

If he loses on the 5th, are his powers curtailed from then until he's replaced? If not, I can see Trump making all manner of executive orders designed to be a nuisance.

Pretty easy to cancel executive orders though. There's not that much he can do.

He can pardon a load of people, but not himself, and he does that all the time anyway.

When he loses:

a) voter fraud, obviously

b) he maintains full presidential powers until January 20 next year

c) don't bet against a stunt such as him resigning a day early so Pence can pardon him

Early voting in TX started 2 days ago. Some voters have stood in line for several hours to cast their vote, others have had no wait at all. I drove past one polling site this morning and their were around 100-150 people waiting in line outside the building, plus others inside.

There is a theory that a lot of people who requested absentee ballots will actually vote in person, just to make sure their vote is counted. If this does happen, it is more likely that the election results for each state will be known on the evening of November 3rd.

Rudy Guiliani got absolutely nailed by sacha baron Cohen in the new Borat film and the footage comes out in the election run-in. Glorious.

Off his fucking rocker

"I will soon be giving a first in television history full, unedited preview of the vicious attempted “takeout” interview of me by Lesley Stahl of @60Minutes. Watch her constant interruptions & anger. Compare my full, flowing and “magnificently brilliant” answers to their “Q’s”.

Big fan of him doing a Joey though with the old " " though

I gather that by "unedited" he means by them but he's had it edited

Without a doubt and probably done by someone with zero experience in editing as well

Reaction polls suggest Biden won the last debate by a fairly resounding margin. Hopefully that is reflected in the final vote.

From this week's Popbitch mailout

>> Trumped up odds <<​
Make America speculate again
There's an eerily familiar tone creeping in with pundits talking about Biden's chances in the upcoming election. While Biden has maintained a consistent polling lead and continues to be the betting markets' favourite, Trump is overperforming on one notable metric.

So, just to stop anyone from getting too comfortable:

2016 US Election – Clinton was polling and betting markets' favourite, but 68% of money bet on the outcome went on Trump. Trump won.

2016 Brexit Ref – Remain was polling and betting markets' favourite, but 75% money bet on the outcome went on Leave. Leave won.

2020 US Election – Biden is polling and betting markets' favourite, but the percentage of money bet on the outcome for Trump so far? Currently close to 80%.​

I watched most of the debate, and tbh thought that trump won - but not by much. Neither landed any real blows but trump sounded more presidential - confident, authoritative, stronger voice. Some pundits are openly wondering why trump didn't do this from the start.
Even if he did win this battle, he still lost the war - he needed something really decisive to undo the damage from the first debate, but he did not get it.

Most the money is being bet on trump (in the UK). Nobody seems to know why, it is a little disconcerting but at the same time nobody really thinks he is ahead in the polls.
