As one of your compatriots put it in another thread, if Texas is a swing state, you can forget ever winning the popular vote again.
Actually, that was me two posts down. But in this respect Trump actually showed the way, by appealing to the poor on the basis of economic success and jobs. Considering how the Democrats are all in on their Green New Deal, War on Oil, open borders, and are likely to go wobbly on China again, they aren’t likely to be able to compete on that playing field. That should help cut into the Democrats’ minority support.
For Republicans looking for comfort as we roll into the last few days of the campaign, there’s the Trafalgar Group
. So far as I know, they were the only pollsters to not only call 2016 for Trump based on state polls, but called the Electoral College outcome. As of today, they show Biden leading in Nevada (10-29, 49.4-47.1), Minnesota (10-23, 48.0-44.8 ), and Wisconsin (10-25, 47.5-47.1), but Trump leading in Florida (10-29, 49.6-46.9), Michigan (10-29, 49.1-46.6), and Pennsylvania (10-25, 48.4-47.6). Those would be enough to give Trump an Electoral College win.

Since it’s my posts you’ve twisted and any study whose results you don’t like that you’ve distorted, yes, it’s relevant. Until you’ve demonstrated you’ve learned to play fair there’s no point in starting. So until then, enjoy your echo chamber.
