Biden Leads Trump By 6% in PA, Biden/Trump Tied in TX

Yesterday we received a new poll from Harper Polling for the state of Pennsylvania that has Joe Biden ahead of Donald Trump by 6%.

PRESIDENT – PENNSYLVANIA (Harper)
Joe Biden (D) 49%
Donald Trump (R-inc) 43%

This poll was done April 21-26 among 644 likely voters. Even more trouble for Trump in the state of Texas where we have yet another poll showing this state that should be a GOP guarantee in a Presidential election will not be an easy win this year. This latest poll comes from The Dallas Morning News.

PRESIDENT – TEXAS (Dallas Morning News)
Donald Trump (R-inc) 43%
Joe Biden (D) 43%

This poll was done April 18-27 among 1183 registered voters.

    surprise: Alarm bells ring over controversial COVID testing. Having antibodies doesn’t necessarily mean that one is protected from COVID-19. It just means a lab test came back positive

    This is true just as having a vaccine that produces “neutralizing antibodies” would automatically mean that you have protection when the end goal is preventing COVID transmission not having positive lab tests.

    From the last thread.

    Sorry Phil, but you have to go through the interview & initiation process just like everyone else. There are no free lunches around here. I don’t care if the Llama lover sponsors your application request or not. I’ve waited years to achieve permanent A-hole status, so I will gladly use my newly earned powers , and veto any suggestion of waiving the normal process.
    The only waving you are going to experience, is all of us A-holes waving at you while you park our cars in the A-hole parking lot. That’s IF you gain entrance into the A-holes. Right now it’s pretty crowded, so in my opinion it’s going to be difficult to squeeze you in. I’m presently leaning against.
    So quit your whining & GFY !!!!!

    Didn’t really expect a waiver, Scooter. Still, thought my disgusting and assholian posts of late should have impressed the membership enough to give me a shot. No matter. I’ll ace any interview…..and Jason will sponsor me whether he likes it or not since he’s losing the bet. I’ll be voted in and in the end, I’m confident I’ll even win you over.

    With respect to the Texas Poll, the pollster in February had Biden +1,45/44. At this time in 2018, I suspect that this pollster showed Beto beating Cruz.

  18. jason says:

    LOL

    The bet will be decided May15th, and I if I lose I will “fess up” then.

    Hope that seems reasonable to you.

  19. jason says:

    Wow, looks like Scooter is being a real A-hole with Phil.

  20. jason says:

    Phil, save the strong forward looking statements for the written application.

  21. jason says:

    “Real a-holes don’t grow on trees”.

    Phil, you don’t want to make any rookie mistakes during the admission process.

    Remember, you are aspiring to be an A-hole, anybody can be an a-hole.

    a-holes ARE a dime a dozen and probably do grow on trees.

    “TWIN CITIES, MN — KARE 11, the NBC affiliate in the Minneapolis-St. Paul metro area, has fired its longtime meteorologist.

    “Due to continued violations of KARE 11’s news and ethics and other policies, we have made the decision to part ways with Sven Sundgaard,” the station is said in a post on its Facebook page.

    According to the Star Tribune, Sundgaard recently reposted comments from Minneapolis Rabbi Michael Adam Latz. The newspaper said Latz had described anti-shutdown protesters as “white nationalist Nazi sympathizer gun fetishist miscreants.”

    How MI “produced” another 75 deaths yesterday.

    “If a death certificate is matched to a confirmed COVID-19 case and that record in the MDSS does not indicate the individual died, the MDSS record is updated to indicate the death and the appropriate local health department is notified. These matched deaths are then included with mortality information posted to the Michigan Coronavirus website. As a result of the most recent assessment, today’s data includes 75 additional deaths identified by this methodology.”

    It is obvious that Phil is funding these efforts in order to win his bet.

    So far they are reporting a mortality rate of less than 1%, which is certainly BS.

    Gay parents are being abused by their children during the COVID-19 lockdown. Clearly, this stress related acting out by their children, especially teens, is only unique to them while ALL the heterosexual parents are finding their children are accepting the lockdown stress-free and behaving just wonderfully, as one would expect of teens stuck in the house with nowhere to go.

    Byron York-“ Absolutely astonishing — New York Times not only rejects role of media, but calls for an investigation done by ‘an unbiased, apolitical panel, put together by the DNC.’

    Joe Gabriel Simonson-“ This editorial from The Times is something. The Tara Reade allegations are too important to be investigated by the media so we need experts at the DNC to reach an unbiased conclusion!”

    The New York Times thinks the DNC is unbiased & apolitical? Lol

    You can’t make this chit up.

  36. Robbie says:

    I see Dr. Birx was back at it today. She whined that protestors weren’t social distancing or wearing masks. Of course, she knows the possibility of transmission outdoors is minimal at best, but she wants the lockdowns to continue. She even went so far as to chide people for wanting to get haircuts. Remember how e were promised an apocalyptic scenario after Wisconsin voted? Well, how’d that turn out?

    What galls me most is the experts aren’t the ones in danger of losing their jobs. No matter how bad things get, no government employee is going to lose his or her job, but everyone else will. Dr. Fauci and Dr. Birx can be wrong about everything (just as they were with the effectiveness of the shutdown) and never be in danger of being fired.

  37. Tgca says:

    So GWB thinks we should all get along. I guess he is channeling Rodney King now. What a hypocrite!

    Listen, I have no problem in advocating civility to the f*cking morons that don’t agree with me. But to be selective about advocating civility warrants justifiable criticism and ridicule. Where was GWB the last 3 years advocating for civility?

    I always thought GWB was a decent fellow but he also stoopidly let folks walk all over him and the GOP, the reason Trump was elected because folks got tired of being beaten down and not fighting back.

    So spare us your lectures GWB!

    Sorry to Wes and other GWB sycophants but GWB is being a hypocrite here.

    The Singapore model, which showed 97% of cases done by May 11 last Sunday, now shows 97% of cases done by May 21. other countries seem to be following the curve of the Singapore model far better than the US is. I suppose that’s because we’re doing so much more testing.

  39. Scooterboy says:

    In response to the NYT editorial board’s suggestion that the DNC assemble an “unbiased, apolitical panel” to inventory Biden’s Senate papers, DNC communications director @XochitlHinojosa calls this an “absurd suggestion on its face” and argues Biden has already been fully vetted.

    “This is an absurd suggestion on its face. Regardless if it’s the job of the DNC to do this kind of thing, it’s already been done. Joe Biden has been clear in responding to this allegation , he went through a thorough vetting process to be Obama’s Vice President in 2008 (which is a vetting process like no other) and lawyers and the press found nothing, and he has asked for transparency by asking that all relevant documents be released if they exist”

  40. Tgca says:

    Me thinks Fauci and Birx are enjoying their 15 minutes of fame and don’t want it to end. Their lack of foresight and knowledge going into this pandemic had frightened large segments of the general population and given the MSM and radical libs and politicians ample opportunity to help destroy America to make folks dependent on them so they can cling to and concentrate more power over folks. Thank God there are resisters.

  41. Tgca says:

    An example of the fear that Fauci and Birx have put on the general public not at great risk was my experience in Whole Foods yesterday.

    There I was, minding my own business, as I always do, shopping for tofu and seaweed juice, and this frumpy middled-aged lesbian clerk sporting a barber style haircut and dangling a large key chain from her belted jeans comes by and lectures some guy that his mask was not fully covering his nose. Then she walks away and comes back and watches him to ensure he was complying with the great authority vested in her by the Sewer State of NJ.

    I wanted to smack the rug muncher in the head but then I realized gay-on-gay violence is not good for the community. Besides, she’s probably taking it out on him because her hetero children at home are abusing her under the COVID-19 lockdown.

  50. jason says:

    Zzzzzz…..

    I have yet to see anyone with more knowledge than Fauci and Birx.

    Foresight? Unless they are psychic, they could not have foreseen anything like this.

    What counts is how they have responded. I find no fault with how they have responded to the challenge of keeping deaths to the lowest number possible.

    It is up to the politicians to weigh that goal against other factors.

  51. jason says:

We will cite you and if we need to, we will arrest you and we take you to jail. Period. There should be nothing ambiguous about that. Don’t make us treat you like a criminal. But if you act like a criminal and you violate the law, and you refuse to do what’s necessary to save lives in the city in the middle of a pandemic, we will take you to jail. Period.”

  54. jason says:

    Wes, you deserve honorable mention points on that one.

  55. Tgca says:

    You have to seen anyone with more knowledge than Fauci and Birx?

    Probably because Fauci, et.al. are the gubbermint administrators in this case and get to lead the effort and the one other gubbermint leaders are relying upon for guidance, especially when Fauci is advocating for not going back to norms and opening up communities.

    Fauci in particular is a 30+ year veteran in an administrative role and not the day-to-day professional on the front line dealing with this and similar diseases. He is equivalent to a University president who gets the spotlight but not necessarily the one doing the real work.

    It would be like saying I have yet to see anyone more expert in politics and gubbermint than Biden because Biden has been a political leader and involved in most gubbermint decisions one way or the other for 40+ years…and he was VP too for 8 years so clearly he must be some kind of an expert in politics and gubbermint affairs.

    Experience and credentials don’t necessarily equate to wise decision-making.

  56. Tgca says:

    To be fair to the lesbian mayor, she is probably acting out of frustration from the fact hetero kids are abusing gays at home during the COVID-19 lockdown! Damn teenage bullies! We need more anti-bullying laws to stop hetero abuse.

    Gays, especially gay parents, are suffering much more the effects of COVID-19 than their heterosexual brethren (see 40 above for proof). This is a fact!

    Scott Gottlieb, former head of the FDA under Trump, was on CBS this morning to do his usual gloom and doom routine. In terms of predictions, he’s been wrong, wrong, wrong. Just go back and read his tweets in March about Florida.

    Let’s leave that aside for the moment and focus on one interesting thing he did mix in with his negativity. He said their would be a vaccine ready to apply to at risk populations this Fall.

    Normally, I would ignore this from him except for the fact he sits on Pfizer’s board and it’s Pfizer who predicts they’ll have a vaccine ready for emergency use in September.

    Of course, if the FDA allowed for “challenge trials” there’s a good chance we could have a vaccine approved by July. I recognize the concerns about speed, but we’re living in an extraordinary time. The longer the economy remains in a coma, the better the odds of a depression that lasts years.

    “There was a period right before the Fed acted, we were starting to get calls,” Buffett said at Saturday’s meeting. “They weren’t attractive calls, but we were getting calls. And the companies we were getting calls from, after the Fed acted, a number of them were able to get money in the public market frankly at terms we wouldn’t have given.”

She has encouraged me to go out and play during the next four or five days while she is here. Weather is going to cooperate it seems.

Critics warn they’re moving too fast. But in Colorado, it’s a progressive Democratic governor who’s accelerating the reopening process.”

    Perhaps Polis is watching California, and releases if he does not reopen his state, those who reside there will.

    Where did you play? I played in Houston two years ago. Each year San Antonio and Houston play a “ryder cup” style event that alternates cities and I qualified for it. We played at some place south of the stadium that used to be a dump? CAn’t remember the name but it was nice.

    I played yesterday and it was great to get back out. All Texas state tournaments and qualifiers, as well as San Antonio City stuff has been cancelled. Its been a sad and horrible spring!!!

    The “big hitters” NY, NJ, MA don’t seem to have under reported cases or deaths today, closed out at 27k cases, and 1150 deaths.

    That is 12000 cases and 1550 deaths below the peak.

    Let’s if we get a big spike on Tuesday. Since the “big three” did not under report, might not happen.

    Alaska is 2 times the size of Texas and has 9 deaths. Hard to justify any restrictions beyond maybe no large gatherings.

  87. Country Dick Montana says:

    Rolling 7 Day Average Deaths

    4/20 – 2137
    4/21 – 2174
    4/22 – 2154
    4/23 – 2178
    4/24 – 2095
    4/25 – 2124
    4/26 – 2066
    4/27 – 1987
    4/28 – 1959
    4/29 – 1966
    4/30 – 1946
    5/01 – 1938
    5/02 – 1884
    5/03 – 1884

    About the same amount of deaths today as last Sunday. I expect to see some wild swings through Wednesday, as they catch up from sleeping over the weekend. Remember that Monday averages about 27% more than Sunday and Tuesday averages about 58% more than Monday. Last week was 20% on Monday and 79% on Tuesday.

    VictrC,

    I live in a rural golf community here om the outskirts of Huntsville – Elkins Lake north of Houston. 27 holes. Everyone is a member by virtue of living out here. Dues $180 a month to play all the golf you want. Since most of us have our own carts it’s nothing to jump in the cart and go play. Before my wife got ill I’d play 4-5 days a week. Would tee off around 6 in the evening and get in 12-14 holes. Virtually had the course all to myself playing that late. Usually would play two balls.

  89. Ron N says:

    Some of these Democrats Gov. better be careful before they put some of these states in to play that nobody are thinking about with these state at home orders.

  90. VictrC says:

    Phil

    JEALOUS!! i used to play six days a week, half of them 36 holes or at least a hot 9…then kids. I still try to play enough to stay competitive, but it gets harder each year.

    I do hope your wife gets better. I don’t recall what is wrong, so forgive me for that, but again, I only hope for the best for her.

    Leftists Fume As Michael Moore Turns On Fraudulent “Green” Movement In Latest Movie
    This film is the wake-up call to the reality we are afraid to face: the mainstream environmental movement is pushing lies in the form of various techno-fixes and band-aids – all of which are reliant and use large quantities of fossil fuels and rare earth minerals. Have environmentalists fallen for a “green” illusion? More than any other documentary to date, this film exposes the wholesale fraud behind subsidized industries like biomass fuels, wind turbines, and even not-so ‘green’ electric car…
    …and that is why Moore’s typical leftist cult following has turned on him so aggressively – facts don’t fit their narratives and cognitive dissonance is not a safe space.

  94. Phil says:

    The new numbers are in from China. New cases jumped from the 2 yesterday all the way to 3 today. Again, no deaths….for the 10th out of the last 11 days.

    These numbers, as always, are brought to you as a courtesy from the Chinese Communist Party.

    “Some business owners in South Orange County say enough is enough and reopened despite California’s Stay-at-Home order.
    The owner of Nomads Canteen in San Clemente said he reached out to city and county officials to let them know he was going to reopen and that no one stopped him.
    Nomads was full to capacity not long after the doors opened Sunday.
    “I’m emotional,” Jeff Gourey, the restaurant’s owner, said. “It’s a bigger fight than for my restaurant. It’s for my people.”
    Fighting back tears, Gourey said he has 25 employees who rely on his payroll. His restaurant had been serving take-out only since mid-March, but that was bringing in just 10% of usual business.
    Said Gourey, “How long do we hide from it, regardless? We can’t stop working. We can’t stop living.”
    With the sun shining on the Nomads deck Sunday, customers said they are tired of being stuck at home.”

    In Sacramento – King Newsom asked: “Is this a revolt.” Response: “No, you twit, It is a revolution.”

  96. SanDiegoCitizen says:

    110. Everyone should watch Michael Moore’s latest film: “Planet of the Humans” It is free to watch on YouTube. The film exposes the huckersterism of the renewable energy racket. Moore takes down a shady bunch of self-righteous buffoons. No wonder Josh Fox and “climate experts” are demanding the film be suppressed; calling it dangerous. The Nation said Moore was the “new flack” for the oil and gas industry.

    I disagree with some of the allegations, and many of the conclusions, the film makes. However, it does an outstanding job of exposing the total hypocracy of the current renewable
    energy hucksters.

    Was surprised there was no mention of the latest solar boondoggle, the Crescent Dunes solar plant in Tonopah, Nevada. A one billion dollar green sham that was permanently closed shortly after its completion; leaving the federal government to pay a 737 million dollar loan guarantee.

  97. jason says:

    I can’t stomach Michael Moore or his movies so I will take your word for it.

    But my take is that Moore is really saying since green energy doesn’t work the only solution is to go back to the stone age.

    Walt might survive it again. We won’t.

  98. jason says:

    I am sure Moore did not question the alarmist climate change data that is driving all of this.

  99. jason says:

    Unless they are taking lessons from the Chinese on creative reporting, Iran, which was one of the hotspots, has made some real progress.

    At about 1000 cases a day, down from 3200.

    At 13000 active cases, down from 33000.

  100. Phil says:

    Supposed to get to 91 degrees in my neck of the woods today. I guess we will see by the end of the month if the heat has an effect on the virus.

    The new MSM meme is that the protesters against the lockdowns are “white supremacists”.

  102. jason says:

    “April is typically a busy month for white supremacists. There is Adolf Hitler’s birthday, which they contort into a celebration. There is the anniversary of the Oklahoma City bombing, the domestic attack 25 years ago that killed 168 people and still serves as a rallying call for new extremist recruits.”

  103. Phil says:

    The MSM tops itself every single day.

    Great numbers for Spain.

    1179 cases, down from a peak of 8271
    164 deaths, down from a peak of 961

    According to Scott Quackslop (former FDA head), we have not flattened the curve adequAtely. He said this on CBS yesterday.

    The fraud should tell us if there is a Plan B.

    Why continue with failure, if he is correct?

    “We assess the Chinese Government intentionally concealed the severity of COVID-19 from the international community in early January while it stockpiled medical supplies by both increasing imports and decreasing exports.” First reported AP

    I actually don’t blame the Chinese for stockpiling medical supplies, any country would have done the same.

    Intentionally concealing the magnitude/seriousness of the situation is what was criminal.

    Mexico is sadly experiencing very big CoronaVirus problems, and now California, get this, doesn’t want people coming over the Southern Border. A Classic! They are sooo lucky that I am their President. Border is very tight and the Wall is rapidly being built!

    That is really an unfortunate name for someone in the medical profession.

    But what is “adequate” exactly. The curve has certainly flattened.

    Even if the number of cases is still high, we are talking of 27k new cases yesterday out of 1.2 million cases (2.2% increase). On April 10th we had 35k new cases out of 500k cases (7% increase)

  112. Phil says:

    Lockdown so we can flatten the curve.

    What a lie.

    We’ve flattened the curve. Hell, we smashed it. We obliterated it. Our hospitals have plenty of space – even in NYC. Now thanks to no elective surgeries we have hospital personnel furloughed by the thousands.

    Yeah, but now the lockdown needs to continue because, well, the virus might come back next fall or the numbers could creep up.

    They have moved the goalposts. Except they really haven’t. Fauci and company always intended to shut everyone’s livelihood down until a vaccine was found – in other words for month after month after month.

    Bend the curve my ass.
