Stupid about AGW!!
Deflection. I can search spoken signs and find tons of reports of Trump signs being stolen. People stupid on bridges and the rocks at the Jews for Trump cars in new York. They then attacked trump supporters once they were stopped having a rally. A black trump supporter had his front teeth knocked out while at a peaceful rally. Show me widespread acts of Trump supporters doing similar.

High voter turnout helps the dems out historically. I see no reason why this election would be any different.

There is a reason why one of the republican strategies of recent years involves voter suppression or high levels of negative campaigning.

And again, that does not bother me. People have different opinions and perspectives. Would rather constructive discourse as opposed to Stepford.
Agreed. It sounds like you were describing Prosper. We voted mid-morning yesterday. There was a small line. It was the first time I’ve voted early. Definitely doing that going forward.

Yep. Been here since it was 6k people, 289 was two lanes, no grocery store and dining options consisted of Sonic or Ernesto's.

This is ridiculous. Covid has been around for 9+ months now. If it were something that hit within the past month or so and we were still adjusting to the inconveniences associated with it, I could understand it, but it has not. There is absolutely no, none, zero, reason why any legal voter could not have their vote in and counted by November 3. This just opens the door even wider for an all-out s*** storm.
We need a landslide to get this thing done Election Day and then the national guard to go put out the fires in our major cities.

I dont know how widespread it is, but it is rather common, and i would imagine, common from the fringe idiots on both sides to make complete asses of themselves. Examples should be easy to find for anyone who spends the effort.

We’ve had family in the area for about 20 years. Loved visiting, but just moved here from Houston in 2018. Thanks for pioneering the way.

It isn't a coincidence that this reads like propaganda.
Yet it’s very clear for the first time in my memory.
Btw
Law over lawlessness
Policy over personality
Nation over internationalism

when we think clearly and take personality out of it we have a very easy choice. Look at the economic numbers...I could be wrong but it looks like the press has been lying to liberal voters about the polls.

I think the rural turnout is actually going to SHOCK the nation. How many times in our history have we seen things like these citizen led Trump parades of boats, jeeps, pickup trucks, tractors, round bailers and square bailers, Semi trucks and the like. I've never seen anything like the support that Trump has in Rural America.

It's staggering when you drive up on it on the ground in real time. I don't know if it's going to be the difference because he has an equal number of haters...but this election is 100% about Trump. Biden is just the guy who currently fills the Anti - Trump ticket. 2020 is the weirdest year of my life and this is the weirdest election of my life.

Certainly anything can happen but it's starting to look less and less clear for the pollsters.
We are watching history...I just want a fair and friendly election at the polls and between people of all sides and no problems with concession for whomever loses. I just drove by our early voting place in Tulsa (oneok field) and it's packed out with lines snaking all the way east into Greenwood. Cool to see no matter who wins.

It's really amazing how much your state can be ignored in the Presidential campaign, depending on polling data. Trump's spent almost nothing here in Colorado, given it's a blue state now. Biden's ramped up the ad campaign here for weeks now, even though it's a blue state.

I suspect Biden's spending in Colorado has a lot to do with the Senate race between Gardner & Hickenlooper, though. The amount of $$$ poured into Colorado from California on ballot measures & candidates is truly alarming.
