Race called by MSNBC for Biden. Nevada Democratic Primary. Biden winning easily 90%+.

Marianne is losing to 'None of these'. The GOP governor came up with this...not working well..haha. There are like 30 candidates so I only did the top three. In a primary that doesn't even matter, Biden is doing great..

I am never watching the Weekend again.

I like Simone but Michael Steele sat there all disappointed with the idea of Biden’s success in Carolina with a worried nasty expression. Biden has a ‘big problem’. The Democrats are doomed I tell you

And they had Dean Phillips on the show. Steele gives him a chance to defend his plan to stay in the election and attack Biden.

Bad polls and more bullshit. Simone pushed back, but it is not enough. I am turning it off. Make no mistake, Steele has an agenda. I won’t watch it again.

The new show the weekend is a disappointment

Michael Steele sat there all disappointed with the idea of Biden’s success in Carolina with a worried nasty expression. Biden has a ‘big problem’. The Democrats are doomed I tell you And they had Dean Phillips on the show. Steele gives him a chance to defend his plan to stay in the election and attack Biden. I turned it off.

Bad polls and more bullshit. I will say he did say later that Phillips should step aside. But giving that guy airtime was a mistake.

Audio surfaces that Roger Stone wanted to kill Democrats-Eric Swalwell andJerrold Nadler

'

Explosive new audio of Roger Stone reveals the longtime Trump ally was trying to plot the assassinations of two outspoken Democratic congressmen.

A few weeks before the 2020 election, Stone told a member of his security detail that he wanted either Representative Eric Swalwell or Representative Jerry Nadler (or both) killed, according to audio obtained by Mediaite. At the time, Nadler had just announced that the House Judiciary Committee, on which he and Swalwell serve, would investigate Trump’s decision to commute Stone’s sentence for federal crimes.

“It’s time to do it,” Stone told Sal Greco, then a member of the NYPD who was working as Stone’s security. “Let’s go find Swalwell. It’s time to do it. Then we’ll see how brave the rest of them are. It’s time to do it. It’s either Nadler or Swalwell has to die before the election. They need to get the message. Let’s go find Swalwell and get this over with. I’m just not putting up with this shit anymore...“He needs to be punished,” Stone told Greco, who has not worked with the NYPD since August 2022. “You have to abduct him and punish him.

Stone denied making the comments about Zelinsky, Swalwell, or Nadler and said the audio had been made with artificial intelligence.

Nevada Is Going to Be OK. Good News is Everywhere. Take a Deep Breath, We Got This.

Jon Ralston, a giant mail dump came in last night and Dems crushed the R’s this time, adding a nice healthy padding of early votes to the pile.

Marist as reported by News week predicts victory for Democrats in Arizona, Pennsylvania and Georgia

Pennsylvania
Marist's polls conducted in Arizona, Georgia and Pennsylvania show Democrats leading in crucial Senate races, though the margins remain particularly tight in Georgia.

The surveys also showed Democratic candidates are favored to win gubernatorial elections in Arizona and Pennsylvania but Georgia's Republican Governor Brian Kemp is on track for re-election.
The last 2022 Marist poll for Pennsylvania has found Democratic Lieutenant Governor John Fetterman leading Republican Dr. Mehmet Oz in the Senate race among definite voters with 51 percent to Oz's 45 percent and 4 percent undecided.
The graph below shows polling averages from the Pennsylvania Senate race.

The Polls could be off and Democrats could win it all...from 538. It could go the the other way too

of course but enough folks here are breathlessly posting bad news multiple times a day (why?) so I will leave a link for those who wish to explore that possibility or someone else can post because I won't. Safe to say this...no one has any idea what will happen on Tuesday In fact, all this premature screaming about election fraud makes me wonder if some on the Right know or suspect they will lose on Tuesday...here is hoping.

Man who assaulted Pelosi's husband with hammer was looking for House speaker, source says

OMFG!!! f'ing MAGA bastards.

Paul Pelosi, the husband of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, was attacked with a hammer at the couple’s home in San Francisco by a male assailant early Friday morning, law enforcement sources tell CNN.

The assailant who attacked Paul Pelosi was searching for the speaker of the House, according to a source briefed on the attack. The intruder confronted the speaker’s husband in their San Francisco home shouting “Where is Nancy, where is Nancy?” according to the source.

Pelosi, 82, was hospitalized but is expected to make a full recovery, the Democratic speaker’s office said in a statement.

Just looked at a taped version of today's Morning Joe. The first topic was Oz's answer on abortion.

It is game over for Oz IMHO. Jim Messina said the take-away from last night would be the abortion should be between a woman, her doctor and I never thought he had much of a chance but that answer? Also, it was noted that Fetterman struggled but the panel agreed that the debate changed nothing...if you were for a candidate before you still are for that candidate. That is what I think. However, I do believe that Fetterman did what he had to last night. Roe your vote.
