Can we put the election on the dinner table now?
Trump wins wipe outs in Florida and Ohio... and closer than expected in Texas.
But Trump loses Arizona and Michigan and Wisconsin by larger margins then he won in 2016!
And so Biden…
Point: So who wins on November 3? A big victory for the Dems? Biden gets 300+ electoral votes and the Dems win the Senate by one seat or the tiebreak, and the House by 40+ seats? How do you like that outcome?

NEW SCENARIO: MIKE & JOE deal
Here's how it happens...
On the political website 538 "No outright Winner" reached as much as 50% likely for first time after Sanders got nicked up in the last…

EBJ Q: How did the 2020 election season kick off?
Political Sage in DC:
Based on the debacle in Iowa, the Dems have suffered an "OWN GOAL" to start the game.
And might be headed for a Brokered Convention with Bloomberg emerging after…
THIRD DEBATE: Mostly a Draw
EBJ's 'Man in Washington' says:
Castro cost himself progress by attacking Biden thuggishly about his memory. Didn't work at all. Took himself out.
Biden likely held ground, but didn't gain much, ditto Sanders who…
Point: OK illustrious EBI’s all-seeing Man-in-DC: Here’s a direct quote from one of our fellow opinion leaders: “Over the past few months, we’ve been hearing growing voices warn that climate change poses an existential threat to companies…

POINT (EBJ’s Voice in DC)
Green New Deal Can’t Depend 100% on Renewable Energy
Many cities (San Diego, Portland, WDC, San Fran, even Puerto Rico) are adopting "100% Renewable" standards or goals by 2030 or thereabouts more as a political…
Question: Fact Checker recently sported this headline: A year of unprecedented deception: Trump averaged 15 false claims a day in 2018.
Does that mean he is slacking off or slowing down? Or does it mean we need a new strategy?
