    In the Matrix the main character Neo was given the option to take a Blue pill or take a Red Pill. It is a question of strength. Do you want to deal with reality and become better, stronger, wiser through adversity, or live in a dream world where reality is nothing but an illusion, and nothing new is learned and no progress is made.

    Pretty much what Donald Trump is selling is that "fiction" is a better choice than choosing the reality of the truth. This is what is at the core of the 2020 election. Trump voters are personality types that prefer a leader who tells them false information that makes them feel good about their failures(weaknesses). Racism is not a flaw in a Trump voter, they want to have a leader that is able to fictionalize racism into a virtue. Black people get murdered by police because they are criminals. COVID-19 is not serious problem, so just accept it and it will go away, etc, etc.

    If Trump is able to win, which I highly doubt, it will because he has convinced enough people that its better to accept false information than facing the tough realities of life and attempt to solve difficult problems.

    wwjd -- Yes you summed up the situation well. I agree. Trump will do anything to win and that includes destroying our American institutions including the post office if that's what it takes.

    Yes WWJD; I fully agree; my only comment is: How can an country become so ignorant stupid to have an con-man as President? And may be again for how long?

    The Wall Street Journal just published its forecast for the 2020 election:

    https://www.wsj.com/articles/2020-presidential-and-senate-election-ratings-and-analysis-11602072000?mod=e2fb&fbclid=IwAR11PGFmepLr6fyEEvYZeMA1S0akk0bGRjbNnvJ8ESZBaAkN7QxsFe15m_c&fbclid=IwAR0_78hoM7-lWs1HRM7l6_Ysag7OZ53E2WOESHAFPghlYGRf5GPbEa28ZW0&fbclid=IwAR0bpcwTascAFu66Ixe4t7XLeXk_nzdTvDMEV4yJARH4190SkGCJBzFeoaU

    If Trump managed to get all 12 "safe" votes and ALL of the 67 "tossup" and lean votes, he would have 248 electoral votes.

    If Biden captured the 222 votes and ALL of the tossup and lean votes, he would wind up with 357 electoral votes.

    Arizona now "leans Democrat" and Florida is rated as a tossup.

    Although the final result will be somewhere in between, I don't see any way that Biden could get less than 300 votes.

    The senate races, though, are nail biters.

    If the Democrats get all the safe votes, and all the lean and tossup votes, you would have 52 Democratic votes.

    For the Republicans, the final total for the same mix would be 51.Tellingly, Arizona leans Democrat, and Kentucky leans Republican.

    The Daily Caller, a conservative newsletter, was founded by Neil Patel and Tucker Carlson in 2010.

    Patel made a prediction this morning.

    "There is nearly a month to go before Election Day, and things could change, but if they don’t, the numbers look like Joe Biden may win big.

    But the national polls since the presidential debate all turned even further toward Biden. What that tells us — no matter what flaws each individual poll may have — is that President Donald Trump did not help himself with his debate performance. "

    President Donald Trump did not help himself with his debate performance. "

    Oh well, it wouldn't have taken a rocket scientist to figure that one out. Or a pollster. Me thinks voters are tired of Trump's antics.

    Yeah, but are enough of them in enough states sick of Trump? I don’t put anything past the idiot electorate. Everyone knew what he was the first time and enough people in enough states voted for him.
