A few posts about this at end of ###US Election 2016### thread but not since July last year. Best to have its own thread.

2020 United States presidential election is scheduled for Tuesday, November 3, 2020.
Voters will select presidential electors who in turn will vote on December 14, 2020, to either elect a new president and vice president or reelect the incumbents Donald Trump and Mike Pence respectively.
The winner of the 2020 presidential election is scheduled to be inaugurated on January 20, 2021.

Republican - On January 25, 2019, the Republican National Committee unofficially endorsed Trump.
Democrat - If a candidate amasses at least 1,991 pledged delegates by the DNC convention in August (formerly July), they will be the nominee. On April 8, 2020, Sanders dropped out, leaving Biden as the only major candidate remaining, and the presumptive nominee.

The presidential election will occur simultaneously with elections to the Senate and the House of Representatives.

Indeed, come back, GB2!

Had been intending to write what I knew would turn into a very long post, but never got around to it. Just now, however, The Don has delivered one line that pretty much sums it all up; `today`s the greatest comeback day in our history!`
Since he came down the escalator he had not only won 2016, but 2020 also, with Ivanka being the first ever female President taking care of the next eight years. Don`t know if it`ll be Don or Eric after that, but probably Don. It wouldn`t have mattered who the dems picked, but joe`s just a pure gift! Forced ever-further left by a dem base gone beyond-incredulity mad, (today`s examples include Congresswomen demanding the ending of the police force, and the DC mayor evicting Utah National Guardsmen (who have been fighting the looting in her city), from a hotel, but she doesn`t want their type there! No police and evicting life-savers, remember, are only today`s examples! So, before this turns into the long post I couldn`t be bothered to write, let me just say that, as in 2016,

THIS IS ALL OVER!!!

Rasmussen poll: President Trump’s approval rating among black voters hits all-time high in the wake of rioting
Ann Wilson | The BL 5 hours ago

The Rasmussen poll on Friday, June 5, found that President Donald Trump’s job approval rating among African American voters peaked at all-time high of 41% in the wake of the rioting related to the death of George Floyd.

According to the new poll, President Trump has an overall approval rating of 48% given the pandemic crisis and ongoing widespread protests sparked by the death of Floyd, a black man who died in Minneapolis police custody on May 25.

Of 41% likely black voters who support the president, 25% said they “strongly support” what he is doing. The poll even showed that 15% of Democrats “strongly approve” the president’s job.

Sen. Tim Scott (R-S.C.) earlier this week commended President Trump’s work for the black community, saying, “The last three years of progress have been unprecedented in my lifetime.”

“The fact that we have secured permanent funding for HBCUs [historically black colleges and universities] under President Trump is something that was surprising, I think frankly, to the HBCUs [and] the United Negro College Fund,” he said. “The president said clearly that the level of funding the last year was the highest ever. Think about the jobs created. Under this administration, we created over seven million jobs, two-thirds of those jobs went to minorities and to women.”

“We had an increase the labor force participation rate among African Americans,” Scott added. “Home ownership, I believe, was up by two points under this administration. Access to a quality education improved, help for sickle cell anemia secured under this president, so when you look at the actual accomplishments—put aside all of the vitriol, all of the rhetoric, all of the things that some may find distasteful—the actual policy positions have been incredibly concrete.”

“And I would say this has been the best policy position of a president in my lifetime, and that’s what I know from just personal experience and having watched this for the last 30 years of my life,” he said.

It’s worth noting that this poll was conducted before Friday’s stunning jobs report from the Labor Department showing that the national unemployment rate unexpectedly declined in May with 2.5 million jobs created.

Rep. Vernon Jones (D-Ga.), who made waves after endorsing President Trump’s re-election, reacted to the poll, suggesting that the surge of black voters supporting President Trump is the reason behind “a race war.”

“Why is the Left trying to start a race war? Maybe this is why…” Jones tweeted.

Jones has strongly opposed the idea that Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden, who recently said that those having a hard time “figuring out” whether to support him or President Trump “ain’t black,” become the next president of the United State.

“Liberal Democrats like Joe Biden have been standing on the shoulders of Black voters over 50 years with their knees on their necks,” Jones wrote in a tweet on Friday. “Let them breath!

Polls schmoles, quickest route to the poorhouse, but some lefties seem to like them, grateful to receive any (false!) hopes, so here`s one. Remember, The Don received 8% of the black vote in 2016, an uptick to even 12%-15% means we`re heading for landslide territory

He/she is laying so their total Max loss is 5.4k.

Don`t know this chap`s motives, but it`s something I do often; if his bank is 6k, leaving it tied up by offering bets that will never be taken offers protection from fat finger problems, so he can`t accidentally back something for 6k when he really only wants £6 or £60 on it. And, if his 1.01 is somehow matched, well, happy days!
