Trump’s not-so-secret strategy to win PA: f**k the USPSPosted by Robert Leonard / October 30, 2020
Trump and Postmaster General crony have a strategy for winning in Pennsylvania: just don’t count the votes. The USPS has admitted that it is delivering mail late, saying that there is no constitutional right to timely mail delivery, and the delivery delays are even worse in PA, where Trump is losing support rapidly.
Trump knows he’s lost Pennsylvania. Despite the fact that he’s losing the state in the polls, he decided to cut his campaign rally there early. He also told the audience that he was only visiting them because he was losing. Then he danced off stage to YMCA.
These seniors are not the only traditionally-Republican Pennsylvanians abandoning Trump. The former Republican governor of Pennsylvania is supporting Joe Biden for President, breaking with his party. Tom Ridge said he has never voted for a Democratic presidential candidate before, but that his long history of rejecting Donald Trump compels him to make this decision. He compared Trump to George W. Bush, who stood on the rubble of Ground Zero with a megaphone, uniting the country. Could Trump do such a thing, Ridge asks? Even if he could, he hasn’t––he has not gone to the CDC to rally the nation against COVID. And more than 125 mayors in Pennsylvania, a key swing state this election, have thrown their support behind Joe Biden.
The Republican governor of Massachusetts has refused to support Trump. He has not endorsed Biden, though. Nevertheless.Joe Biden now has a 91% chance of winning the electoral college, according to an Economist forecast.
Biden currently has a twelve percent lead over incumbent Donald Trump, the highest lead of any challenger since scientific polling began in 1936. The majority of voters––some 57%––think Trump has not paid his fair share in taxes, indicating just how bad things are looking for Trump.
