Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

Mixed bag on polls today so far:

Marquette University -- sort of the go-to Wisconsin pollster -- has Biden +5.  

NYT/Siena has Biden up 6 in Nevada and 1 in Ohio.  Which is...weird.

Quinnipiac has Biden +5 in Iowa, +13 in Pennsyltucky and +11 (LOL) in Florida.  (FLORIDIAN NARRATOR: Biden is not going to win Florida by 11.)

Be nice to America. Or we'll bring democracy to your country.

Voter suppression?
(not hanging chads, I hope...)

No, not due to voter suppression.  

Florida just doesn't work that way.  It's a pretty evenly divided state and pretty stable.  It changes a great deal over the cycles, but the changes tend to offset, demographically -- e.g., growing Hispanic/Latino and African American/Afro-Caribbean populations but also growing number of rural whites from the South/Midwest, etc.

It just doesn't lend itself to big margins.  I don't think anybody's won it statewide by double digits (sans a big third-party candidate) since...Jeb in 2002, at the height of his brother's popularity post-9/11.

(I think Rubio won by double digits in 2010, but he only got a little north of 50%, and the left was split between the Dem and Charlie Crist running as an Indy.)
