    Know about what? Your link? Or, my prediction?

    Regardless, I think MI is very likely Biden's from what I can see at this point in time. I see Trump's 2016 11K vote win there as a fluke, inspired by Hillary and her poor performance pretty much everywhere.

    Amid the many nuggets of insight pulled from the debris of the 2016 election was this: older voters went for Donald Trump more than they did Hillary Clinton.

    In several battleground states such as Florida, voters aged 65 and over turned out for the Republican candidate by some margin. Nationally, Mr Trump bested his rival in this demographic by as many as nine percentage points.

    But things may be changing. As the coronavirus pandemic drags on, bearing with it a lethality to which the elderly are especially vulnerable, so the presidents support among this age group appears to be softening. At the same time, support for Joe Biden, all but certain to be his challenger in November, is growing.
    ================================================== =========
    Bad news for The Donald in a 'must win' state.
    No evidence is really being drawn up to show as such. Much the same was propped up all over the mainstream media during 2016 and those same predictions went down the drain.

    I won't exactly agree on the fluke premise. But yes, she did a piss poor job of running her campaign.

    If a politician worth their salt can tell you anything. It's don't ignore the flyover states, or hell. Any states for that matter.

    Say all you like about Trump. But he was out there on the trail to a much greater degree.

    Trump is letting MI slide away, and FL is not far behind it.
    Russian trolls and their supporters go on Ignore, automatically: no second chance.

    Would you vote for someone who is trying to kill you?
    Who knows. Will the elderly in New York, New Jersey or PA vote for their democrat governors?

    Simple face coverings only filter out only about 75% of the aerosol droplet that carry the virus particles. The N95 mask does better than 95%. Since most people don't use the N95, you have to watch your donkey especially in enclosed areas. This is recent data from the CDC. Eye coverings, like a face shield or goggles, also help as those droplets can also get to you via the eyes.

    Yeah. They do.

    Poll: Michigan voters show support for Gov. Whitmer's handling of coronavirus
    Overall, 64% of those surveyed approved of Whitmer's response, compared to 33% of those who did not. Unsurprisingly, Democrats were particularly supportive, with 96% approving of her actions, and Republicans in opposition, with 79% disapproving.

    But Independents, a key voting bloc in Michigan, came down on Whitmer's side, 65%-28%. Forty percent of them said they strongly approved of her actions.

    "By any standard, those are terrific numbers for any political figure," Czuba said.

    The situation was reversed for Trump, who is coming to Michigan for a visit at a Ford plant Thursday. Slightly more than half of voters disapproved of his handling of the crisis, compared to just 43% who approved. While Democrats disapproved in greater numbers and Republicans approved of the president's performance, Independents disapproved 47% to 39% who approved.

    I don't see anything saying they approve of her going to her summer home when they are not allowed to do the same.

    Sorry, but you fail as answering a simple question.

    I absolutely agree. Trump worked his ass off on the campaign trail. HRC was a prima dona awaiting her coronation. And it bit her.
