This May column has some data in it that, I think, helps explain the surprising GOP showing downballot.…
Trump-Biden voters "a demographically diverse mix: Just one-third make up the popular Trumpian stereotype of working-class white voters, while one-third are white college graduates, and the remainder are nonwhite."…
These persuadable voters "identified as economically progressive—supporting higher taxes for the wealthy, a higher minimum wage, and mandated paid family leave—but held markedly conservative positions on a wide array of social and cultural issues."…

Bottoms viral speech is giving space for (white) more-pragmatic Dems in the Biden orbit to speak up...
But note that Bottoms' perspective was the outlier, at least as of Saturday morning.

Val Demings and Stacey Abrams took the exact opposite tack.

Other prominent Dems were surprisingly muted on the issue of rioting, incl. Obama himself.

SCOOPLET: Schultz adviser passes along some of the topline #s from their internal polling.

Schultz commissioned several ballot tests over the past few months, found "centrist indy" polling between 25-low 30s // Trump consistently at 29-30 // Warren between 26-30%.

With Warren on the ballot, found that about 24% of Dems defected to the generic centrist-independent alternative and 20% of Trump Republicans.

Polling found Trump's strong support with Rs around 70%.
worth noting polling 101: naming a generic"centrist-indy" option will lead to a higher % than if Schultz or any other candidate is named. think of it as something of a high water mark.

Big difference between criticizing Israel's policies and arguing against Israel's *right to exist*.
Most of Goldberg's argument is that Israel is turning illiberal and right-wing, and it's not anti-Semitic to criticize the Netanyahu government policies. Which isn't anti-Semitism.

What she glosses over is the argument against the Jewish state itself.
Is Rep.-elect Tlaib's comment: "Israel has hypnotized the world, may Allah awaken the people and help them see the evils of Israel" anti-Semitic?…

Or L Hill's invocation of classical anti-Semitic rhetoric a problem for Goldberg?…

2. Pennsylvania Rep. Ryan Costello
"Costello’s reelection bid is the most instructive, as his sharp political instincts are being tested by one of the Democrats’ leading recruits, military veteran Chrissy Houlahan."…
