Let's not forget, m'k: GA had been one of nine (9) states permanently subjected to VRA sec. 5 until 2013 Shelby ruling (jurisdictions). The state has been a civil rights sewer despite concerted "expert" opinions to veil SOP, crushing its conspicuous black constituency, with DNC iconography --Abrams (2018 loss), Lewis (2020 memorial), and a laissez faire remedy (J. Lewis Voting Rights ASSvancement Act, 2020) -- or "blame the victims" purported low turnout, or Magical Margin of Error (MOE) statistical "calculation".
I warned all intoxicated by poll smoke. The uniparty has one play, many tactics, to simulate electoral enfranchisement d/b/a "majoritarian rule" a/k/a "representative democracy" d/b/a "racial equity".
I'm warning you now: This time the bottom, or "base", has truly fallen out of the symbolic pyramid scheme. Assumed predictability of black and latino voters' party preference won't guarantee the POTUS mandate that national committees seek. Under the radar, since 2016 schisms in both parties, under-40s ideological agitation has effectively decapitated party line and party re-alignment. "Popular vote" pragmatism has moved to "down-ballot" correction. In short, electing not to vote on POTUS nominees at the polls.
NB. This year DNC TWICE lost a suit to "restore" mechanical "straight-ticket" ballot design in TX.
Empirically, one would expect significant proportional discrepancies in ballot shares by office, even with reported increase in total ballots cast. OTOH, "experts" are unlikely to produce such detailed analysis, preferring instead to maintain rationales for cyclical "voter participation".
That said, do you really believe 4 more years of Trump will be better for minorities than even a tired Biden? I personally think Trump will really go insane in a second term. We ain't seen nothing yet...

But yeah, the battleground average doesn't make much sense. Biden's up 6+ in enough states to get above 270, last I looked.
Biden's closing to winning Alaska right now than Trump is to winning Wisconsin. And about as close to winning South Carolina.
Right now, it simply isn't very close in the polling.
Be nice to America. Or we'll bring democracy to your country.
Do I expect 4 more years of Biden admin to improve the welfare of [INSERT ETHNIC MINORITY GROUP]?
First, MD's legislature is not in session; delegates have been hiding at home since March 18, 2020, and chambers' leaders refused to call a "special session" to over-ride Mag-lev destruction of 2020 civic, fiscal, PH, and environmental acts; the Dem super-majority "holding their powder" for the next regular 90-day session? Or Mag-lev's last day in 2022.
Second, talk about turkeys and slugs! In the interest of "transparency," one might suppose, these committees exercised their gall by broadcasting their inane deliberations.
MD delegates are reluctant to recommend repeal of the statute which indemnifies and rewards LEOs' "misconduct" despite passionate advocacy of "minority" witnesses to bind LEO "willful" or "reckless" injuries to suspects to existing criminal code. Rather, hours of consensus are crystallizing around "reform" in the statute that preserves low standards in lawful use of [INSERT ADVERB] force, LEO union adjudication in K12 schools [!] and municipalities, and deferential badge penalties as more turgid diction.
To be sure, Baltimore, whose city council authority doesn't supercede police department autonomy granted by Annapolis, will suffer unique adversity derived from the suburban counties' indifference.

Hogan on why he voted for Reagan: "He's the kind of person that I've always admired. That's how I got involved, really, in politics, working for him ... To me, it made a difference about voting my conscience and was the right thing to do -- symbolic." https://t.co/vpO9ZpXB9r— WBAL-TV 11 Baltimore (@wbaltv11) October 19, 2020

As Washington Post moderate-republic poster child, as chairperson of the nga.org with rival Andrew Cuomo, as Pence-surrogate and Reagan-law'n'order stooge, as surreptitiously declared candidate for POTUS, succeeding Biden/Harris.
Kamala?! is no Truman; she's not even a Gerald Ford.
ubn warned. Campaign 2024 begins Sep 28, 2021. Please make a note of it.
Trump has fractured the Republican coalition. White suburban women left to vote for the Democrats in 2018 and there's no indication they are returning.
While it is possible he could bring in 2,000,000 new voters it is equally likely Biden will bring in 2,000,000 new voters as well. The latter is much more likely than the former.
It is hard to keep in mind polling is descriptive of the time the polling took place not predictive of the future. When asymmetrical shocks, like 2,000,000 unexpected voters showing up, happen things get a wee bit weird. And, in fact, the national polling was fairly accurate. Clinton when in with about a 2 percent lead and she won the popular voter by around 2 percent. She didn't win because the US has an archaic election system designed for slave owners and when the horse was the fastest land transportation.
She believed in nothing; only her skepticism kept her from being an atheist. -- Jean-Paul Sartre
