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

The story of this election is we're seeing the ending days of the Southern Strategy as the number of old white ignorant hick Evangelical racists is dropping as they croak.

I'm not so sure about that. There are a lot of young hicks.

Yes but not near as many.

There's a good chunk, but as a share of the generational population they're pretty small.  (The Millennials seem to be more liberal than the oncoming Zoomers, but the Zoomers are still pretty liberal, it seems, so that trend is roughly continuing.)

I think the story of the election so far is really that Donald Trump is pretty unpopular, as he's basically been from Day 1.  Most voters seem tired of him, and they hear his opinions and reflexively take the opposite positions.

Meanwhile, they all know who Joe Biden is because they've been watching him on teevee since the Cretaceous Period, and they see him and go, "Yeah, okay, he's fine."  His being boring as hell is probably a feature rather than a bug.

We still have a long way to go though.
