THREAD: I’ve put together a mini Midterms version of the Trump Fundraging analysis, focused mainly on the last few days before Election Day (Oct 29-Nov 6). Please RT!

#Trump #TrumpEmails #Midterms #2018Midterms #2018MidtermElections
From October 29th through November 6th, I got 27 total emails. That’s exactly 3/per day, WAY above the 0.896/day average throughout all of 2018.

I chose Oct 29th for this thread because that’s when they really started picking up.
“Donald J. Trump” dominated the From field most of Oct. In the week before the midterms, they switched to a big mix of surrogates: Donald Trump Jr. (1st email of 2018), Eric Trump (8th), Melania Trump (5th), Lara Trump (23rd), Newt Gingrich (12th), & Brad Parscale (12th).

They had Fox on (closed caption but still 🤮) at the nail salon when I went yesterday for my pre-Election Day mani/pedi and since I endured the lunacy I figure I might as well share what I saw with y’all...
It was Chris Wallace’s show and the guests were Karl Rove, Juan Williams and a blonde whose name I didn’t catch. Topic of discussion was whether or not the GOP was making a mistake by making immigration their closing argument rather than the economy.
Of course Karl Rove was decidedly in the tank for unbridled xenophobia, but the blonde and Juan Williams were pretty certain that the Caravan is needless red meat that will certainly fire up the base but alienate Independents and GOP moderates (if they still exist).

Ignore the polls and get out there and #Vote on November 6th. Relying on polling is a relic of a time gone by.
I’m not saying looking at @FiveThirtyEight’s model and charts and stuff isn’t cool, because it is and provides some insight. But no matter what the numbers say, it’s most certainly NEVER an excuse to not #Vote because you feel your peeps are a “lock”
Need nothing further than to point to 2016. Which by the way, @FiveThirtyEight didn’t really have wrong, but the “selected not elected” mindset existed before 2016. Why else would over 100 million people choose NOT to participate in their civic duty to choose their leaders.

A friend asked me how I knew this in 2016, during the campaign, before the election, how did I know to raise red flags about #TrumpRussia #TrumpLies #TrumpCrimeSyndicate #PenceKnew #Manafort 1/
She went on: you’re busy, you’re just a normal civilian person, you run a small business, you’re focused on working, your family, how did you figure out and know what was wrong with Trump, Russia, the GOP, why the election was different? 2/
First, let’s acknowledge lots of people knew, too. I don’t just mean the intelligence community, or the co-conspirators and accomplices to treason and illegal activities, I mean lots of other regular people like me. There are some common qualities and habits we share 3/

#Democrats have sold the #MuellerInvestigation as Trump colluding w/ Putin (aka the dossier).

But intel doesn’t support it. So Dems are leaning on obstruction charge instead.

Yet once the FBI’s IG slams Comey & Co for 2016 shenanigans, that obstruction dog won’t hunt either.
Why won’t #Obstruction charge work? Trump will argue he was legally trying to stop a #WitchHunt. That message will find a sympathetic audience w/ Rs & Indys.

At that point, Ds are left pointing fingers at staffers. That’s a dead end (Kushner just got TS clearance) or weak sauce.
The result? #Democrats like Schiff, Waters & #progressive brethren will rightfully be labeled fools, left to scramble like cockroaches in search of cover.

The party will likely fall short in the #2018Midterms. Good for Rs. Bad for democracy. We don’t want a one party state.

There's been a lot of talk about #electionsecurity since we know #Russia will try to hack the #2018Midterms.

This thread will give brief overviews of #votingmachines, #opensource software & #handmarked #paperballots. THREAD 1/10 #MondayMotivaton
Jurisdictions don't have 💰 or staff to buy new machines frequently or keep the ones they have up to date with security updates. There's no voting machine that can't be hacked. 2/10…
Manufacturers & election officials say since the machines aren't connected to the internet, they can't be hacked. But that's not accurate. Polling places transmit voting results using modems. 3/10 #technology #hack #telecommunications
