Older woman trying to find non Trumper man to date

Had conversation with friend last night. After being divorced for a year, she is trying to reenter dating market.
Early60’s, financially secure, attractive, smart.
She wants someone preferably with a job, not bald, over 5’6” with a decent sense of humor.
But, she says the only thing that is a dealbreaker is they can not support Trump.
She thought she had found a winner until she asked this guy who he’s supporting for President.
He said Trump.
She said, “on my dating profile, I specifically said No Trump Supporters”.
He replied, “ I don’t really support the guy just gonna vote for him”.
She called him an idiot and ordered an Uber. 😏

Assuming Trump shows, the debate can be a game changer.

I love the format of no audience.
I also think the moderators Bash|Tapper will keep things on track.
Biden will come off as polished, knowledgeable, and presidential.
Trump will come off as ignorant of policy and a self centered child.

I think it will be such a contrast that the post debate discussion and analysis will have nowhere to go but to proclaim Biden the much better choice. Then, I think we will see the poll numbers finally move.
Not by a huge amount but by enough to show Biden leading in all of the important swing states. June 27 can’t get her soon enough.

Some things Biden could do cosmetically on campaign trail.

Over my career, I’ve had the opportunity to help people with public speaking. From those years of study, if I was advising President Biden, here’s a few suggestions that I’d give to him and his staff.

Speak slower. Much slower. He stumbles much less when he does and he is able to more succinctly stress important points.
Take more pauses between thoughts or topics (Obama used this very well).
Don’t squint. People like to see your eyes. So, indoors, staff shouldn’t have key lighting right at his teleprompter site line.
When speaking outdoors directly into the sun on sunny days, put on the sunglasses. 😎
Make a joke about how Jill says he looks cool in them as “Dark Brandon”.
Smile 😃 more. He has a great smile. It warms him and his audience.

Nancy Pelosi slammed Katy Tur just now.

3:38pm eastern time Monday on MSNBC
They were discussing job creation and Tur defended Trumps job losses because of Covid
Nancy said “if you want to be an apologist for Donald Trump, maybe that’s your role here”.
Tur said “I don’t think I’ve ever been accused of that”.

I laughed out loud.

My prediction on where the polls are headed.

I just have the good feeling that in national polling that Biden will slowly increase his numbers while Trump, 3rd party, and Undecideds will slowly decrease.
Here is my national percentage prediction and I think the 6 primary swing states will follow pretty much the same trend.

May. Trump 43 Biden 42 Others 10 Undec 5
June Biden 44 Trump 42 Others 9 Undec 5
July Biden 45 Trump 42 Others 8 Undec 5
July Biden 46 Trump 42 Others 8 Undec 4
Aug Biden 47 Trump 42 Others 7 Undec 4
Sept Biden 48 Trump 41 Others 7 Undec 4
Oct Biden 49 Trump 41 Others 6 Undec 4
Nov Biden 50 Trump 41 Others 6 Undec 3

Actual Election night results:
Biden 53 Trump 43 Others 4

Will RFK Jr be the Libertarian Party Candidate?

Their nominating convention is on May 24.
If he hasn’t secured enough places in state ballots for an Independent run, I’d bet he would try to be the Libertarian candidate which has a better process of getting on ballots. They were on all 50 states in 2016 and 2020.

I don’t know what’s better for Biden.
We will already have Cornel West and Jill Stein out there (not sure how many states ballots they will be on).
