They usually pick someone to shore up the other side of the party vote - like a Sarah Palin, which worked wonders.  In this case, I think Harris seals a large wedge of the voters who can be a bit, meh, when it comes to turnout - Suburban women and minorities.  Both are majority on Biden's side in polling, but both are less than reliable in actually voting, which will be critical given a Pandemic will over shadow the vote.

Trump now openly admitting he is attempting to deliberately suppress the postal vote by abusing his power to defund the US Postal Service - i.e. blatant election rigging. When people ask "How did this happen?" it happens in plain sight because people think "It couldn't happen here" and let it slide

I think he's extremely clear: the US Postal service needs c $3bn to enable postal voting to take place; he knows postal voting will allow more disadvantaged voters to vote safely, esp during a pandemic; so he's going to withhold the funds in order to suppress the vote. It's simple outright blatant election rigging

He's also ramping up the 'voting fraud' rhetoric ahead of when he (likely) loses; trying to deligitamise the vote in the eyes of his supporters. It's going to get messy if/when he loses. He's not going to go easy and he has a lot of gun-toting rednecks behind him.

I vaguely recall Trump making excuses in the build-up to the last election.

It's going to be an interesting election. He'll get plenty of votes.

Sorry, I know there are real people impacted by this, but it is kind of ironic and funny.

Trump's white nationalist (that's Nazi in old-speak) campaign manager and friend of Farage and Cummings, Steve Bannon, has been arrested on suspicion of massive fraud. Is there anyone connected to Trump who isn't either a criminal or a Russian asset (or both)?

I asked the same question elsewhere and apparently there is one campaign manager who to date has not been indicted for anything, although I cannot vouch for Russian ties.


Indeed, sadly many of them who paid cash would probably respond again if a fund was launched to fund his legal fees.

TBF its little different to Farage and Brexit Party Ltd.

Of course, as Yaxley-Lennon ("Tommy Robinson") has demonstrated with his continued milking of his followers, funding his 1m mansion in Beds, his villa in Spain and his ongoing subsidy of various Columbian export enterprises.

Well, there's a reason for that. They're all part of the same network.

It doesn't look good for them - In summary, they funneled around $1.5m out of the "Charity" and moved it around before sending it back to themselves and sent text messages to each other providing an evidence trail!
