My ballot is in the mail. I couldn't find our local drop box; I'm confident it will be counted even though I mailed it. There is a "track your ballot online" option, but I don't think I'll bother. DH's is filled out and he will either deposit it in the drop box (we know where it is; I took a wrong turn due to street signs being changed and was too lazy to make a u-turn against traffic to carry on to the right street), or he will mail it.
I saw some "political strategist" on CNBC (they pretty much lean to the right) and he had a focus group of 14 undecided voters. He said they mostly thought Pence won the debate. I was unclear if that meant they were actually going to vote for the idiot. The strategist claimed 7 came in leaning slightly to Biden, 7 leaning slightly toward Trump. No one called him out that there were 10 men and only 4 women, the first thing that caught my eye about this group. To me this says there are many more uninformed men living under a rock than women.
yesterday we did a mini-road trip to san diego (just me and one of my girls) and all the bars we walked by and an outdoor screen were airing the harris/pence debate. my kid got so into it that when we started driving home she asked to continue watching the rest on my phone and stayed captivated all the way til the very end! i was so pleased! in her words "she totally roasted him."
i saw a lincoln project ad showing pence when he was a conservative radio talk show host and although i disagree with everything he said, i was shocked at how much more vibrant and lively he was. it's almost like being on team trump sucked any ounce of life or vibrancy he may have once had completely out of him. it's weird.
We finally got our absentee ballots late yesterday. We'll take them tomorrow to the next town over where there is an official drop box. Talking heads are saying, it would be ideal if Biden could take Florida and Ohio, shutting out Captain Combover from any possible electoral win.
of course he won't! though i'm surprised he's not just outright lying and saying the test is fine even when it's not. that evil soul is for once hesitating to tell a lie? not be truthful of course, but not tell a lie? very weird.
