1. Looks like WV, KY and TN will be in play...

I'd look carefully at the changing demographics in those states in the coming years. There's going to be a lot less QOP voters.

3. I continue to wonder why people do not look at death statistics.

They are around 1% of those getting the disease. That will not put any of those states in play.

5. The effects go beyond 1.2%

For every person who dies there are friends and family affected by that death and they may start to rethink their support of the liars who got us here. It's very difficult to assess the overall effect until someone starts doing district by district polls and analyzing the different races.

But many races are one by less than 1%

6. NPR claimed this morning that

Biden's "failure" (their word, not mine) to stop the viral spread, along with his "chaotic" (again, their word, not mine) withdrawal from Afghanistan will cost Democrats politically.

NPR has become a RW mouthpiece which is why I will never donate to them again. They need their federal funding restored so they can drop their corporate sponsors and become more independent again. Listener donations would not be enough to counter their corporate funding so I will not contribute to their RW bias.

7. For the last 21 years

NPR turned to the right the moment W got in office.

2. That top map is not a 2020 election results map, at least not for President.

It is similar but itís not Bidenís winning map. It might be Obamaís 2012 map, though.

8. Build a wall around TN/KY/WV?

YIKES!

"UNITED" States needs renamed IMHO.

Oh well, there will lots of changes forced, by ocean takeovers, in due time?

9. Florida Panhandle Is Surprisingly Pink

I expected it to be more like the color of Tennessee, given how red the election map is.
