"Black and Latinx people are 3X more likely than whites to contract COVID. They are 2X more likely to die from COVID. So, we must look at how we can enable that population of voters to exercise...their right to vote in a way that doesn't put their health at risk."--@JNelsonLDF
WATCH: @JNelsonLDF explains the Eleventh Circuit Court's decision to uphold #SB7066, a law that requires returning citizens to pay all outstanding fines and fees before they're allowed to vote.

#2020ELECTION NOTE:

If/when #Trump wins on Nov 3rd, then begins a new American Civil War and 'Color Revolution' on Nov 4th led by a coalition already preparing, coordinating incl: #Democrats #CNN #MSNBC, internet #Google #Zuckerberg #Dorsey, street violence by #BLM #Antifa etc..
Part of this play may also include a repeat of 2000 contested election where the winner, George W Bush, was actually decided by Supreme Court split decision. This is why #CNN staffers like @rezaaslan are calling for rioting & street violence if #Trump replaces #RBG #SCOTUS: Image
(3/4) By declaring the regular Nov 3rd vote as 'illegitimate', #Democrats will try to claim that Trump "robbed the election" via the postal votes, and Democrat-run states will demand recounts, delaying finality of result, rioters deployed to destabilize Democrat-run cities...

The #TwoPartyDuopoly has worked together for decades to erect a mighty #FortressOfProtection. The #2020Election may be an unprecedented opportunity to break right through it.

This is our original depiction of the duopoly's fortress. The first slide shows the structural barriers (exclusionary debates being one of those). The second slide shows how these concrete barriers are reinforced by various barriers of perception. 2/ The Problem: Two-Party Duopoly protected by a fortress it haThe Problem: The fortress is reinforced by barriers of perce
It's hard to argue which type of barrier is stronger, & the reality is they are mutually reinforcing. When the media goes along with a phony narrative that the CPD is a legitimate institution working in the public interest, that has a powerful impact on perceptions. 3/

Great analysis on Putin's goals, methods, and risks in manipulating voter data and vote tallies in #2020Election.

What’s Putin’s cost-benefit calculus for interfering with US election infrastructure in 2020?

Will Russia pull back, for the reason James Clapper thought they did in 2016, anticipating a Trump loss?

The number is a major improvement over the last time an assessment of similar scope was performed in 2012, when a Pew Research report turned up 2 million deceased voters on the rolls.

Understand carefully. Ben Rhodes is not a fringe Leftist, but a Mainstream #Democrat. He played a key role in Obama's foreign policy and championed US intervention in Libya and Syria.

He is aggressively promoting the Hinduphobia of Rana Ayyub as an authentic account of India.
If #JoeBiden wins the #2020Election Ben Rhodes is virtually guaranteed to serve in his administration, pushing an interventionist foreign policy.

On whose side will he intervene? He is eating propaganda out of Rana Ayyub's hand just as Donald Rumsfeld ate out of Ahmed Chalabi's.
The very title of Ben Rhodes' podcast is "Missing America": alleging that under Trump, the world is Missing American intervention on the basis of "human rights", "freedom" & "democracy" that marked the road from Vietnam to Iraq to Libya. His other podcast is "Pod Save The World".

1/x The polls weren't wrong, you just read them wrong.

The spread in a poll matters some. But a 50-47 lead (+3) is FAR MORE ROBUST than a 46-40 lead (+6)

People see a poll avg at 46-40, and when the result is 47-49, they say "pOlL wAS WrONg"

From +6 to -2?!? Off by 8!!!

Nope.
2/x

If the polls were "off" by 3 or 4 but the result of the election didn't swing because of it, no one would care, except pollsters. We wouldn't be talking about it.

Here's the most important question: what do polls measure?
3/x

This seems like a silly question, but think about it. What do polls measure?

Polls measure preference and plans.

What do polls not measure?

How/if undecided voters will vote.

It seems that people are criticizing polling for not measuring things it doesn't attempt to.

🚘 BUCKLE UP 🚘 The road to accurate information can be a bumpy one, but it doesn’t have to be. If you’re a first-time voter struggling to sort fact from fiction, start by asking yourself these three questions developed by @SHEG_Stanford.
1️⃣ Who is behind the information? A quick detour 🚧 to someone’s bio to see who they are won’t slow you down that much and it will help you determine if you can trust what they’re saying.
2️⃣ What is the evidence? Make sure the person giving you directions 🗺️ can back up the things they’re saying.

@Reuters

Four nonprofits run by or linked to this network of lawyers – the @PILFoundation, the @The_ACRU , @JudicialWatch and @TrueTheVote - have been involved in at least 61 lawsuits over election rules since 2012, according to a @Reuters examination.

“The @GOP gets it now,” @PILFoundation's J. Christian Adams wrote in an email. “And that isn’t going to change even after Trump. Republicans are no longer wimps when it comes to fighting election fraud and vulnerabilities.”

The Epoch Times National Poll was conducted by Big Data Poll and interviewed 2,169 likely #Voters nationwide sourced via voter file-verified online survey panels from Aug. 26 to Aug. 30, 2020.

Here were the findings (Thread👇) theepochtimes.com/epoch-times-na…
“Mr. Biden’s edge with seniors has slipped, and the president is outperforming his minority vote share from 2016 by a modest but statistically significant degree.”

#JoeBiden holds a potentially dwindling lead over President Trump, and voters expect the incumbent to win.
#Biden leads among female voters 49% compared to Trump at 35%, while Trump leads with male voters 46% to 41%.

In rural America, where #Voters are currently the most enthusiastic about voting in November, the president leads 52% to 36%.

This spoils the ballot under state law. The new cross-out instruction was given in the August primary, despite a specific state procedure barring the practice (AZ Public Integrity Alliance v. Fontes).

The general election is exactly two months away. Read this thread for some tips on how to prepare to cast your vote on November 3rd. #ElectionTwitter #vote #Vote2020 Image
First, make sure you are registered to vote. You can check your registration status at vote.org. If you're not registered but think you are eligible, check your state election website for steps on how to register.
Once you're registered, you need to decide how you will vote. There are two ways to cast your vote: in-person at a polling place or with a mail-in ballot. Because of the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, more Americans than usual plan to vote by mail.

I don't know what brought you here (welcome to #WeTheNorth land)
But I can't understand why only 30500 of you voted in #2016USElxn. That's downright pitiful by any #voter turnout standard...
#USPoli #Toronto #Vancouver
..The results of the upcoming (66 days) #2020Election will have profound repercussions to not only #USA, but to #Canada . As a Canadian, I'm not eligible to vote. What's your excuse if you're a #USAexpat?

1/ Been thinking this morning abt what I would say in the event of a #2020Election #trumpwins. I've decided it's better to say it now.

Once would have been a fluke. Twice would mean we are decisively broken.

I very purposefully do not say our system would be broken.
2/ Our system hasn't changed all that much. That's why we commit it to paper, institutions, and civics lessons. Conditions change, we change.

The system changes too. But less, more slowly, differently.

We are what changed. We are what makes it possible.

Trump is us.
3/ Look at this guy. Look at him last night. Or look at him here, the first time I remember seeing him.

It's the first time I can remember disliking someone I never met so instantly and viscerally. I was 14 or 15.

@RickSantorum @Patriot_Voices #CNN #AC360 #RNC2020Convention It's sort of typical for Democrats to look at the issue of how it affects people of color and to bring up quotas @JenGranholm of secretaries of departments. I don't think most people in America care who the Secretary 1/
2/ of a Department is and whether they are meeting some sort of quota of what reflects America. What they care about is WHAT are you doing for me?! That's what they care about and that's what Donald Trump said over and over and over again - that he has done a LOT for the
3/ minority community and he has FOCUSED on some of the BIG issues that are confronting them; particularly jobs, his First Step Program... That's what the President wants to talk about and that's what he DID talk about and I think he was incredibly effective in doing so.
