Trump's weight?

I read today that he's well over 300 pounds. Was this verified someplace on his medical records, and how was that leaked or viewed?

Biden's Lead Grows in Virginia, According to Christopher Newport Poll

Latest university poll offered surprising data, as some older voters step away from Trump.

NEWPORT NEWS-Joe Biden’s lead keeps growing in Virginia. Thursday’s poll from Christopher Newport University put the Democratic nominee ahead of President Trump 48% to 43% among likely voters. When the discussion shifts to enthusiastic voters, Biden’s lead stretches farther, 51% to 43%.

“Little chance Trump wins Virginia in 2020, as voters seem locked in,” Quentin Kidd said in a statement. Kidd, who serves as academic director for the Wason Center for Public Policy at CNU, pointed out Hillary Clinton won Virginia by 5 points in 2016. Biden’s campaign appears to be following similar trends in the commonwealth.

The numbers show Biden’s campaign gaining ground across the board. Among women he holds a 27% advantage, beating Trump 61% to 34%. The point that surprised university pollsters was the fact Biden and Trump are at a draw when it comes to voters 45 and older. In the poll analysis, Wason Center officials pointed out that group has been Trump’s base in the past. Now, they don’t seem as interested. When it comes to the younger demographic, Biden wins there too. He currently holds a 56% to 38% lead over Trump and 66% to 30% when talking with college-educated voters. The Black community also show strong support for Biden in this poll. Black voters chose Biden by a 75% to 14% margin over Trump.

Goodness gracious, DU! Can we stop with doom and gloom?

Latinos in Florida. Construction workers in Ohio. Have I mentioned Latinos in Florida yet? Again?

Vote securely, support Democrats, give money and time when you can.

We will not change the minds of the Trumpublicans. Focus on Independents and new voters. I know many people who have changed their minds and will vote for Biden and I’ll bet you do, too.

Does it make sense for Biden to announce his V.P. pick on a Friday?

I am excited to hear who'll be on the ballot when he announces her name, but it's Thursday and no news. I always thought Friday was a "news dump" day (although his pick will be enduring news, of course).

Who can enlighten me? Does it not really matter?

Speaking of renaming things, there's an airport in D.C.

that I’d like to have its name reverted to its original name.

And I will never call it anything but Washington National Airport.

Officer Remy helps find nonverbal boy with autism after he goes missing in Roanoke Co.

Good girl!

“ROANOKE Co., Va. (WSET) -- A missing Roanoke County boy is safe thanks to a K-9 officer with the Roanoke County Police Department.

“Roanoke County Police said they responded to a call that a non-verbal boy with autism climbed out of his window and had been wandering in the woods near his home on Mt. Chestnut Road.

“Within 12 minutes of searching, officers said Remy's ears perked up, giving the signal that the boy was in the area.

“When officers turned around, they said they saw the boy just 15 feet away.”

HOW did the Trump campaign get an email address that I do not use

except to sign into Facebook? No one but me even knows about this email address.

Stupid question, does Facebook sell users' email addresses? By the way, only the Trump campaign has sent emails to this address - not any Democratic campaign.
