Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Sunday, September 20, 2020

The Republican Party is viewing Friday's death of US Supreme Court justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg as an opportunity to rally their base in time for the upcoming Nov. 3 Presidential election. The oddsmakers aren't buying it.

"Across the leading sportsbooks, Biden is the -126 favorite to win the election. Trump's betting line has lengthened to +103, his worst numbers since Aug. 21, when he was +104."

As recently as Aug. 10, Trump was the -110 chalk to win reelection.

However, the Sept. 19 numbers mark the fourth successive betting line in which his odds to capture the election grew longer. Trump's poll numbers are also painting a gloomy portrait of his future in the White House.

"In polling, 50% is considered to be a magic number. A candidate with 50% or more in the polls generally wins the election.

Currently, Biden is closing in on achieving that digit. The latest numbers from RealClearPolitics show Biden to be at 49.3% in national surveys. He holds a 6.2 percentage-point lead over Trump nationwide."

This time around, there aren't nearly the number of undecided voters that were available in 2016, and there's no solid third-party candidate to play the role of X-factor.

Trump will need to sway some Biden voters over to his side of the final six weeks in order to win this battle.

As well, Trump is an incumbent. He's running on his record. His best hope now is a strong debate performance against Biden."

Trump is a moron. He won't be strong against Biden.

Biden is clearer headed that I previously thought. And Trump is more of a dullard than ever.

The GOP are hoping to provoke outrage at their SCOTUS nomination so they can fight the 'rioters'.

Learn from Gandi and MLK, peaceful protest, but most important, vote.

Not sure what book they're using, but the line 2 weeks ago was -115 Biden -105 Trump. It's an extremely narrow betting gap.

Biden's Election Odds Improve After Death of Ginsburg

Yes, they do. Republicans already had a SC majority, so they're not motivated by this.

And this will be the final stake for the Senate careers of 'independent minded (LOL)' Trump-sycophants like Collins, Tillis, Gardner, McSally, if not more.

I want to see the numbers on 9/30, the day after Joementia had to take a nap in the middle of the debate.
