Watching Jason Miller on MTP: they’re actually going with “You can’t just hide in your basement, you have to go confront this virus” as a message.
The Trump campaign’s closing message is, literally, “You’ve got to go out there and confront this virus - BY CONTRACTING IT.”
And of course there was zero pushback from Chuck on this, and no Democrat on MTP to counter Miller’s lies/insanity.

Why wasn’t a Democrat offered a spot on Meet the Press today?

What did we find? A thread:

1. These voters are highly motivated to show up in 2020

2. They generally don’t like Donald Trump

3. They don’t really know Joe Biden (41% of undecideds have NO opinion of him), though he’s doing better with them than Hillary (49-37% vs. 35-30%)
What do these voters believe?

1. The economy is by far the top issue with Trump voters AND undecided voters. Biden voters care about Covid response, civil rights, and health care.

2. Biden and Trump are tied on managing the economic recovery, Biden leads everywhere else.
What have these voters been hearing?

1. For Trump, 25% mentioned the Woodward tapes, 10% mentioned @TheAtlantic story, and 4% mentioned Trump’s Nobel nomination.

2. For Biden, the top response was “nothing” (11%)

For the Nothing Matters crowd:

- 23% say opinion changed of Trump’s COVID response because of Woodward tape, including 15% of Trump voters

- 23% of indys and 6% of Trump voters say troop comments increased support for Biden

- Biden goes from +6 to +10…
I will say: it’s one poll, the shifts are small, and the effects of stories and controversies like these are often fleeting. But in a close election where more than 150 million people might cast a ballot, none of us have any idea what might change certain minds.
Also: Trump is currently behind. Every day he has to deal with a shitty media cycle is a day he loses the chance to further define Joe Biden and make up lost ground with voters.

Good morning! I just wanted to take a second to thank our @PodSaveAmerica and @crookedmedia community for what you've already done to help win this election.
1) You've raised $1.3 million through our Unify or Die fund with @swingleft - money we'll be giving to our friends at the Biden-Harris campaign next week.
2) You've raised $2.5 million to flip the Senate through our fund, $500k to help train battleground organizers, and $3 million for voter protection and community mobilization programs.

No more important context for the negotiations on Capitol Hill than this story. Take a few minutes to read it.…
Reading it will make you even more infuriated to hear Republican politicians push the false (according to multiple studies) talking point that an extra $600 per week is somehow preventing people from going back to jobs that don’t actually exist.
This is also what happens when government assistance programs are designed with the goal of making them harder to use because conservatives (and too many Democrats) have spent decades warning about fraud and abuse.

Joe Biden should announce that the first bill he’ll introduce as President is the John Lewis Voting Rights Act of 2021, a law that would guarantee every American the right to vote and the right to equal representation.

It would restore the Voting Rights Act, but also ensure:
1) Every American is registered to vote (through Automatic Voter Registration, and that includes those who’ve been incarcerated)
2) Every American receives a ballot (through the mail, like citizens in multiple states do now)

“Stick with Trump to avoid dystopia” is the most darkly hilarious campaign message I could possibly imagine.
“Vote for Trump, unless you want the times we’re living through to disappear forever!”

“Vote for Trump unless you want the kind of country where you can leave your homes and visit your families!”

“Vote for Trump unless double digit unemployment isn’t your thing!”
“Vote for Trump to maintain your freedom to be gassed for peacefully protesting”
