Pennsylvania counties' deadline to certify their election results is this Monday.
Recurring theme: What seems effective in press conferences doesn’t actually work in courtrooms.

(And no, I’m not saying the Trump legal team’s press conferences have been effective.)

I’m back in Pennsylvania. This time for a Kamala Harris rally in Philadelphia.

One carload of people I interviewed were pleasantly surprised to learn that @JohnLegend will be performing tonight.
These drive-thru interviews are much easier to do now that I’m no longer fat.

The people in this Jeep said they support Joe Biden “because he will unite the country and is prepared to not work with only Democrats.”
First car was full of Elizabeth Warren primary voters who now say they’re enthusiastic to vote for anyone who gets Trump out of office.

Second car included a 13-year-old with a simple message: “We need more love, less hate.”

Here’s a front yard in rural Exton, Pennsylvania.

This was Trump County in 2016. Today, the lawn signs are about 50-50. Image

My focus group’s words to describe Trump tonight:
• “Controlled”
• “Reserved”
• “Poised”
• “Con artist”
• “Surprisingly presidential”

Words to describe Biden tonight:
• “Vague”
• “Unspecific”
• “Elusive”
• “Defensive”
• “Grandfatherly”

“People running for office have to tell you what they plan to do and how they’re going to do it.

I thought Joe Biden would tell us tonight, but there was nothing there.” #Debates2020

Washington Post reporter @MFFisher asks my group of undecideds about character.

Similarly as before, they say Joe Biden is a more decent person, but they side more with Trump’s policies and how they affect their daily lives.

A very smart opening by Biden saying “if you remember nothing else, remember this…”

That’s a great debate technique. #Debates2020
Great Biden line: “He says we’re learning to live it it? We’re learning to die with it.”

Very powerful. #Debates2020
Another great Biden line: “I’m going to shut down the virus, not shut down the country.”

However, my group is already complaining that Biden has great words but no solutions. #Debates2020

Let’s give ABC credit for getting right to Joe Biden, and let’s ask NBC why it took so long to get to Donald Trump.
I resent having to turn my channel back-and-forth between the 2 town halls.

The American people have a right to see and hear them side-by-side, or at least one after another. This is so stupid.
ABC is inviting audience members to ask questions.

On NBC, it’s just the host – that’s not what a townhall is about.

I’m on live with my virtual focus group of undecided voters from battleground states. #Debates2020

Tune in here:
This is why I do these – you don’t hear this type of unfiltered commentary on cable news.
Agreed – when it comes to our voting system, falsehoods must be corrected every single time.

It’s essential to the electoral process.
