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

So long as the focus was on replacing RBG on the supreme court, Trump was winning because the the Supreme court is a big concern for Republicans and reminds them of why they tolerate Trump in the first place. His nomination of Amy Comey Barrett also seems to have pleased conservatives no end.

And then the focus switched to his debate performance and then to his illness. Post debate bounces are often temporary, but this one was copper-fastened by his illness and the return of almost 100% focus on the pandemic - a strong issue for voters and Democrats.

It has also moved the focus away from the economy, which is a strong issue for Republicans and the only major issue on which Trump regularly outscores Biden. Silver has an article up querying why Trump has stopped negotiations on Stimulus - it helped his numbers big time last time.  No doubt he will try to bribe voters again with a personalised cheque...

It's not all about what Trump does. Recently Biden's ads have had less about "I'm not Trump/Orange man bad" and more about health care, education, wages and jobs.

You know, the stuff that the voters are actually interested in because they lack all of those.

Everyone knows Biden is never going to deliver any (people are not corporations), but at least his campaign is finally making the motions of giving an excuse for people left of Reagan to hold their nose and vote Biden.

No.

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