Democrats are very concerned about the November 6 election.

They know the Senate will be retained by Republicans.

There’s also an outside shot the GOP keeps the House, as well.

This happened at the request of Democrats.

From Reuters:

WASHINGTON (Reuters) – Twitter Inc (TWTR.N) deleted more than 10,000 automated accounts posting messages that discouraged people from voting in Tuesday’s U.S. election and wrongly appeared to be from Democrats, after the party flagged the misleading tweets to the social media company.

“We took action on relevant accounts and activity on Twitter,” a Twitter spokesman said in an email. The removals took place in late September and early October.

Twitter removed more than 10,000 accounts, according to three sources familiar with the Democrats’ effort. The number is modest, considering that Twitter has previously deleted millions of accounts it determined were responsible for spreading misinformation in the 2016 U.S. presidential election.

On Republican chances to keep both the upper and lower chambers, via Daily Wire:

Since the Kavanaugh confirmation circus, Republicans’ chances of keeping the Senate have strengthened. For the last few weeks, Real Clear Politics‘ average of the key polls has given Republicans 50 “safe” Senate seats and narrow leads in three of the six “tossup” races. According to Silver’s FiveThirtyEight, Republicans now have a 5 in 6 chance (82.7%; up 0.3% since last week) of maintaining control of the Senate, giving the Democrats just a 1 in 6 chance (17.3%) of taking over.

Silver projects Republicans to end up with 52 seats and Democrats with 48, a net gain of one seat for Republicans and one seat more than is needed for the 51-seat majority. Silver currently gives Republicans an 80% chance of gaining up to four seats or losing up to two, and just a 10% chance that they gain more than four or lose more than two.

Real Clear Politics‘ poll averages currently show Democrats with 205 seats that are “safely” blue, including 14 that are “likely” to go their way and 18 that “lean” Democrat. Republicans currently have 200 “safe” seats (20 likely and 26 leaning). Last week, RCP gave Republicans only 199 “safe” seats. If those numbers hold up, that means the Democrats only need 13 of the 30 tossup seats to attain the 218-majority in the House. Republicans, meanwhile, need to win 18. The one thing that could work in Republicans’ favor is that 28 of the 30 tossups are currently held by Republicans.

Let’s hear your thoughts.

Consider this an open thread…

Watch: ‘BLM Protesters’ Try Burning ‘American Flag While Blocking Traffic’ In Los Angeles

Never cool!

Even though this flag burning took place in Los Angeles, the reason is due to the death of black man George Floyd in Minneapolis. Floyd, of course, was basically choked unconscious by a cop with an apparent violent past. That being said, it’s not cool to burn Old Glory unless you’re a member of ISIS – which President Trump has pretty much eradicated. RIP, George.

It was “egregious, appalling and tragic,” McEnany continued. “He wants justice to be served.” She said that the video prompted Trump to “pick up the phone” while aboard Air Force One and ask the FBI to expedite its investigation.

There Is Evidence That Does NOT Support Criminal Charge of Cop In Floyd’s Death, Says County Prosecutor

Oh, whoa!

The video of a Minnesota police officer with his knee on the neck of George Floyd obviously looks extremely brutal. And, at the same time, the officer has a history of complaints filed against him. The thing is, people jump to conclusions way too soon. We all know this. It was sad that Floyd died, that goes without saying. But we don’t know the whole story just yet.

Minneapolis cops are investigating reports that the victim was a looter shot dead by an owner of the business, police department spokesman John Elder said at press briefing early Thursday. The man was found with a gunshot wound outside Cadillac Pawn and Jewelry on East Lake Street near Bloomington Avenue at about 9:25 p.m. local time, Elder said.
