Have there been any polls for Max Rose (NY-11)?

I haven't seen any polls, but I've seen a ton of local ads for him and for his opponent, failed 2017 NYC mayoral candidate Nicole Malliotakis.

Rose's district is largely conservative, and he won in an upset in 2018. I'd love to see how the race is going. Any polling? Predictions?

Joe Biden and Mike Pence cross paths with each other at 9/11 memorial

Say what you wish, but this makes me happy. I miss the days when opposing politicians would be civil to each other. I hope after Trump we can see its return.


Why Oklahoma (poll), why?

Ugh, I know it's a deep Red state and I expected Trump to be ahead, but by 25 points? This is insanity. After all the horrible things he's done, he's leading 60-35%? Come on!


Jeff Bezos is now worth a whopping $200 billion

Source: CNN

Hong Kong (CNN Business)Jeff Bezos was already the world's richest man. Now his net worth has skyrocketed once again, setting another new record.

On Wednesday, the Amazon CEO's wealth reached an estimated $202 billion, according to the Bloomberg Billionaires index, as the company's shares soared. That's up about $87 billion since January.

The explosive growth in Bezos' fortune is being driven by his holdings in Amazon (AMZN). The company's stock is up about 25% over the last three months and 86% so far this year, according to data from Refinitiv.

Bezos, who founded Amazon in 1994, keeps breaking records with his wealth. In 2017, he became the richest person on the planet. And last month, his estimated net worth jumped to almost $172 billion, marking a new global high.

He might eventually become a trillionaire while the bottom 99% get poorer.

Georgia poll shows Trump up by 7

Ugh, while I did expect Trump to squeak out Georgia, winning by 7 makes me worry about the two Senate races there. I thought we could have picked up one of them.


NY unemployment experts, please help, benefits expiring soon!

I live in NYC, and filed for NY unemployment benefits in March, and was accepted. It says I have 16 "Effective Days Remaining." From what I understand, in NY there are 4 effective days each week, so that should last until roughly 4 more weeks.

So my question is, is that it? It just ends? Any chance of an extension during the pandemic? Would it be automatic or would I have to do anything? Thanks in advance everyone.

Pennsylvania Morning Call poll: Biden up by 4


New York Gov. Cuomo warns NYC restaurants may have to close again in the fall

New York City restaurants that have been staying afloat with outdoor patios and takeout service this summer may be forced to close when it turns cold this fall as local officials struggle to enforce the state’s orders to curb the coronavirus, New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo warned Wednesday.

Unlike other parts of the state, restaurants and bars in the Big Apple have not been allowed to reopen indoor dining services. Some have been able to operate with expanded outdoor patios that Cuomo has said are safer.

“We have a much, a much bigger problem in New York City today than any of the surrounding suburbs with a lack of compliance,” Cuomo told reporters on a conference call when asked why the state allows indoor dining in other regions and not New York City.

While every region of New York is in the final phase of reopening, New York City has been barred from reopening many indoor activities as Covid-19 spread across the country. Cuomo has recently laid the groundwork for some indoor businesses to return in the coming weeks with limited capacity, including gyms and museums, but has yet to make a decision on restaurants and bars.


Better safe than sorry, but that $600 a week has to return!

AOC symbolically nominates Bernie Sanders in 60-second DNC speech

Source: NBC News

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez stressed the importance of broad progressive priorities during a brief speech to the virtual Democratic National Convention Tuesday night that made no mention of the party's nominee.

The New York Democrat, who was given a 60-second slot as part of her role in the symbolic nomination of Sen. Bernie Sanders for president, opened her speech by offering her thanks to a “mass people’s movement working to establish 21st century social, economic, and human rights, including guaranteed health care, higher education, living wages, and labor rights for all people in the United States.”

She ended by formally seconding the nomination of Sanders, I-Vt., to be her party's presidential nominee, a procedural move. Joe Biden officially claimed the party's nomination moments later.

“In a time when millions of people in the United States are looking for deep systemic solutions to our crises of mass evictions, unemployment, and lack of health care, and espíritu del pueblo and out of a love for all people, I hereby second the nomination of Senator Bernard Sanders of Vermont for president of the United States of America,” she said.

CNN Poll: Biden and Trump matchup tightens as enthusiasm hits new high

Source: CNN

(CNN)Joe Biden's lead over Donald Trump among registered voters has significantly narrowed since June, according to a new CNN poll conducted by SSRS, even as the former vice president maintains an advantage over the President on several top issues and his choice of California Sen. Kamala Harris as a running mate earns largely positive reviews.

And on the eve of the party conventions, a majority of voters (53%) are "extremely enthusiastic" about voting in this year's election, a new high in CNN polling in presidential election cycles back to 2003.

Overall, 50% of registered voters back the Biden-Harris ticket, while 46% say they support Trump and Pence, right at the poll's margin of error of plus or minus 4 percentage points. Among the 72% of voters who say they are either extremely or very enthusiastic about voting this fall, Biden's advantage over Trump widens to 53% to 46%. It is narrower, however, among those voters who live in the states that will have the most impact on the electoral college this fall.

Across 15 battleground states, the survey finds Biden has the backing of 49% of registered voters, while Trump lands at 48%.

An ABC poll posted in an earlier thread had Biden up by 11. Since both polls are highly-rated, I suspect the actual percentage is somewhere in the middle.
