Finally. Good News About Covid-19

Mon, 08/03/2020 - 12:22

We keep comparing our current situation with the 1918 (“American”) Pandemic, but of course, “we’ve come a long way, baby.” We know what a virus is. We know that it spreads in the air. We know that masks arrest transmission. And, of course, in those days, they didn’t even have antibiotics! There are now two […]

First Trump-Biden Debate Moved to Ohio Due to Coronavirus Concerns

Tue, 07/28/2020 - 13:50

For the second time this summer, a debate venue has pulled out of hosting a presidential debate due to concerns over health safety related to the Coronavirus. We reported last month in June that the University of Michigan had decided to pull the plug on plans to host the second presidential debate, sending the event […]

Covid-19 Could Bring About Major Change

Mon, 07/27/2020 - 13:40

The largest political issue this year is Covid-19. It shouldn’t be, of course. We should be working together to defeat it—together. As we noted, no Democrat wants to kill the economy, and no Republican wants to kill people. But since it is a political issue, anyway, we’ll continue to report relevant news about it. The […]

Trump Pulls Convention Back From Florida Amid Covid-19 Concerns

Fri, 07/24/2020 - 13:03

The saga of where the 2020 Republican National Convention will take place, and in what form, is something we’ve been following for months. Originally, due to a spat between President Trump and North Carolina Gov. Roy Cooper, the RNC had decided to move most of the convention out of Charlotte, and settled on nearby Jacksonville, […]

There’s So Much More At Stake In 2020 Than The Presidency

Thu, 07/23/2020 - 13:14

Election fever is quite rightly reaching boiling point – after all, it’s not every day (or indeed every year) that something quite so momentous as an election to decide the next President of the United States comes around. With all the attention rightly directed at the White House, it can sometimes be easy to forget […]

Covid-19 Stories You May Have Missed

Wed, 07/22/2020 - 14:02

Every day we hear about new deaths and a record number of cases. But we found some unusual angles to the story. For instance, a woman from Wuhan, China discusses how they handled the pandemic there, and how different societies have responded. But the news angle is that she had to go to Florida to […]

It’s a Long Way to the November 3 Election

Tue, 07/21/2020 - 14:12

All we hear these days is poll numbers showing Joe Biden being ahead of Donald Trump. But that doesn’t mean the election is over. As in 2016, the candidates both have low popularity, so the polls can shift with any news item. Emotions also matter. We’ve had articles saying that Trump would win in a […]

Former 2016 GOP Presidential Candidate To Speak At 2020 Democratic Convention

Mon, 07/20/2020 - 18:26

Which 2016 candidate, you ask? Why, it’s Ted Cruz, of course. No, just kidding, Cruz is all-in with the Trump campaign in 2020. It’s none other than former Ohio Governor John Kasich, a constant thorn in the side of the Trump administration, and the Trump campaign before that, for years now. Kasich could be receiving […]

More Covid-19 Considerations—Including Economy/Finance

Mon, 07/20/2020 - 14:40

Covid-19 has caused a lot of change. It may cause more. We know that people will not want to immediately go back to their old habits. They don’t seem to make sense anymore. But beyond that, some say we should evaluate everything we’re doing when we re-establish normal routines. They say we should evaluate what […]

The Battle Over Covid Masks Heats Up

Mon, 07/20/2020 - 13:16

Covid-19 has changed our lives, maybe permanently. But most of what you hear about is the number of cases—and the number of deaths. We want to explore further. This is one of a series of articles we are writing that covers more than the basics. We already compared the current pandemic with the “American Flu” […]

As in 2016, the “Haters” May Decide the 2020 Election

Fri, 07/17/2020 - 13:29

Despite the polls, we have repeatedly said that Donald Trump has the advantage, since his supporters are so much more excited about him. While his approval ratings have always been about 41%, we noted that he won in 2016 with just 31% of registered voters. It doesn’t matter who people want (or don’t want)—unless they […]

Republican Convention Attendance Scaled Back Due to Coronavirus

Thu, 07/16/2020 - 16:34

First, the 2020 Republican National Convention was scheduled to take place in North Carolina, with Charlotte as the host city. Years of planning goes into these carefully orchestrated events, but as the Coronavirus situation worsened into the Spring, Gov. Roy Cooper, a Democrat, warned the GOP that the convention would not be able to take […]

Republicans Are Split Going Into The Fall Election

Wed, 07/15/2020 - 13:00

It’s an odd year. Oh, you’ve heard that? One thing that’s odd is that Donald Trump has an organized opposition in his own party. There hasn’t been this much mutiny since 1948, when Harry Truman had two Democratic candidates actually running against him on the November ballot: conservative Strom Thurmond, with a Dixiecrat Party label; […]

Lessons From 2016: It’s Not Over Until It’s Over

Tue, 07/14/2020 - 13:37

This is the final piece in my Lessons from 2016 series, and like most good writers, I’ve saved the best lesson for last. This piece was published on July 14, exactly 111 days until the presidential election on November 3. Which means there is still a lot of time left until Election Day. Many more […]

Could The 2020 Presidential Race Get Any Weirder?

Thu, 07/09/2020 - 14:33

There’s not much that most people like about 2020, which includes, once again, unpopular presumptive candidates for president. So let’s forget what’s currently the case, or even what’s probable. The year is weird enough that anything could happen. Politico looks at a number of possibilities, such as that Trump will just decide not to run. […]

Professor That Predicted Trump’s 2016 Victory Has New 2020 Prediction

Tue, 07/07/2020 - 16:23

Aside from the polls, which can vary widely depending on the voter models and pollster weighting, we can also look at election models that create forecasts based on various data points. There are a handful of models, mostly produced by college professors or other academics which attempt to predict presidential elections based on a variety […]

Let’s Look Back at “The American Flu”

Mon, 07/06/2020 - 12:22

Covid-19 seems to have originated in China, but we can never be 100% certain, since it also appeared simultaneously in places like Italy and Spain. However, we’re more sure where the 1918 pandemic began. And if we want to call the current pandemic, “the China Flu,” we would have to honestly call the 1918 pandemic, […]

A Few Surprises in Tuesday’s Primaries

Thu, 07/02/2020 - 13:25

Happy July. We’re now just four months away from the general election, and June ended with some significant primaries. The most notable was probably the Kentucky Democratic primary to find a candidate to go against Senate Republican leader, Mitch McConnell. It started out looking like Amy McGrath could unseat McConnell. She’s a serious, former Marine […]

Statehood For D.C. Is Complicated. Really Complicated.

Wed, 07/01/2020 - 13:20

House Democrats passed the Washington, D.C. Admission Act last Friday to begin the process of officially admitting the District of Columbia (D.C.) into the Union as a state. It is likely to be rejected by the Republican-controlled Senate, and President Trump has threatened to veto the bill should it arrive on his desk anyway. But […]

Trump Admits He May Lose Election

Tue, 06/30/2020 - 13:11

There’s gloom in the Donald Trump re-election camp, but is it justified? People usually think a president will automatically stay for a full second term, but as we noted elsewhere, that’s not what the past half-century shows. Five presidents in a row failed to win or complete a second term: Kennedy, Johnson, Nixon, Ford, and […]
