    Same goes with PA or Texas or Iowa or NC.

    Trump's chances drop dramatically (to less than 1%) if he loses even one of a handful of states.

    Obama was up for election in 2016?

    Most swing states all within the margin of error, with Trump gaining coupled with new Republican voter registration far outpacing similar new Democrat voter registration in most, if not all said swing states.
    Where are you getting the bolded information? I'm seeing headlines stating the opposite.

    In battleground states, newly registered Democrats are outnumbering newly registered Republicans

    Yes, they still outnumber them, but the gap between them is much smaller than in years past...and in states that Trump already won last time. I apologize, I did not word that correctly in my original post.

    And this is why we tell you conservatives to get your heads out of your asses and face reality.

    The voter registration shtick was disproven a while ago. You seem to be behind on the talking points, fella. Democrats have registered (way more) voters months, even years before this election.

    And also, Impeach and remove the shitstain of Kavashit. That bastard needs to go.

    check off another thing trump and party said was going to happen under Obama and Hillary that is occurring now.

    good old death panels and rationing of care. I know we already had this in 2020, but hey why not remind people of who caused it

    https://www.sltrib.com/news/2020/10/...navirus-cases/

    Utah’s hospitals prepare to ration care as a record number of coronavirus patients flood their ICUs

    Under the criteria, which would require Herbert’s approval, patients who are getting worse despite receiving intensive care would be moved out first. In the event that two patients' conditions are equal, the young get priority over the old, since older patients are more likely to die.
    Buh Byeeeeeeeeeeee !!

    Glad you figured out Obama wasn't up for reelection.

    Let me know if I can help with any other concerns you might have.

    Ewwwwwwwww

    This is a very bad day for America.

    And adding beds won't help. They don't have enough staff. The staff they have has been way overworked for quite some time.

    I remember people freaking out during the first wave because some hospitals had priority lists female patients ahead of males because females are more likely to survive. I don't think those priority lists were forced into use though.

    It is not the first time they've had to do this as was mentioned previously. There were doctors in Arizona bursting into tears because they were having to make this choice. Unfortunately I don't think this is the last time it will happen either. In fact I'm fairly certain that the election next week will cause the already spiking numbers to jump up further in the following weeks.

    That’s the thing... even if Biden wins, Trump will continue to deny covid exists through most of winter. He is campaigning on “covid, covid, covid”, like he did with “Russia, Russia, Russia”.

    The Republicans got what they wanted by ramming Barret through and now they're running for the exits until after the election, this means no covid relief.

    Mitch McConnell just adjourned the Senate until November 9, ending the prospect of additional coronavirus relief until after the election

    Mitch "Where the fuck is Shredder to make some turtle soup" McConnell: "Uh, we got what we want so American's including many of our voting base can go fucking die for all we care. If you don't die then vote Trump or oogity boogity boo the Socialists, Muslims, and Hillary will get you."

    I’m interested in how Pelosi will be blamed for this one...

    Well obviously Pelosi did not scream the Republicans praises from the rooftops for all of McConnell's and his Senate's hard work of putting a band-aid on a bleeding out body and calling it good day's work.

    Hope it was worth it. We're not just gonna let a stolen seat go. This will lead to packing the supreme court, which will lead to worse next time repubs have power.

    All cause they wouldn't give Garland a hearing. Good job idiots.

    I really think we're witnessing the fall of Rome. And this is WITH a trump defeat. It won't even matter anymore.

    I just hope this massively pisses off the Dem base into voting with even greater fervour. There's a shit ton of liberties on the line.

    To be fair, this is how your constitution works. The problem isn't necessarily the GOP doing what they're allowed to do. The problem is that they are allowed to do it. Change the political system, otherwise it'll always come 'round in a circle to bit your ass. You need to break the wheel.
