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

I have a feeling that the Republican push to confirm Trump''s choice of a replacement for RGB on SCOTUS will end up driving a wedge right up Trump's fat ass. It will drive a lot* of women who are on the fence solidly into voting for Biden for President. Add that to Biden's already much stronger position among rural voters as compared to Clinton in '16 and that is the wining margin. The next two to three weeks should tell whether it is a squeaker or a landslide.

* 'a lot' = > 3% more of likely women voters.

It's all about turnout and Dems are afraid to vote because of COVID. Reps aren't.  Mail-in ballots? Two days ago I mailed a package to Alabama from Illinois. Due South. Today it's in Chicago marked "undeliverable" and being forwarded to another location in Chicago.  How many ballots will be misdirected?

I know a lot of southern Democratic women in swing states that swear they will crawl through broken glass on their knees to vote Trump out of office. And some of those Republican women who are running to show that the party line about women does not represent them will likely vote for Biden.

IMHO, with Joe Biden you see an assault on workingmen and retirees like you wouldn't believe from the influence peddling author of "The Catfood Commission".
He openly bragged about withholding appropriated funds to quash an investigation of his son. I heard him!

My "priority" package is still bouncing around Chicago.
