Exclusive: Warren will make case to be Biden's Treasury secretary
Elizabeth Warren wants to be Joe Biden's Treasury secretary and will make her case for it if he wins next week, according to three Democratic officials who have spoken with her inner circle. “She wants it,” two of them said matter-of-factly. Warren’s moves could set up the marquee fight between the party's left and its center over what will be one of the most consequential Cabinet roles in the next administration. The Treasury Department wi ...

People Are Going To Be Shocked: Return of the 'Shy' Trump Voter?
In 2016, pollsters Arie Kapteyn and Robert Cahaly saw Trump coming. In 2020, they see polls again underestimating his support. With Nov. 3 racing toward us, it can be tempting to see the 2020 election as a done deal. For months, Joe Biden has consistently and convincingly led Donald Trump in polls. Swing states in the industrial Midwest and Sun Belt appear to be heading Biden’s way, and if you trust the polls, it’s not a leap to imagine him wi ...

Elect Joe Biden. Reject Donald Trump
our years ago, the Editorial Board — an ideologically and demographically diverse group of journalists that is separate from the news staff and operates by consensus — broke with tradition and took sides in the presidential race for the first time since USA TODAY was founded in 1982. We urged readers not to vote for Donald Trump, calling the Republican nominee unfit for office because he lacked the “temperament, knowledge, steadiness and honesty ...

Editorial | Joe Biden for President
In 2020, the grueling election process produced two candidates with close ties to the University of Pennsylvania: President Donald Trump, a 1968 Wharton graduate, and former Vice President Joe Biden, a former Penn professor. While both share a bond with Penn, the similarities end there. This November, the stakes are higher than ever. The climate, the economy, our health, and our lives are on the line. While we can't reverse the past four ...

Editorial: The Herald endorses Trump
he 2020 presidential election is about what people don’t want as much as what they actually do want. For the left, getting Donald Trump out of office tops the wish list. It’s been that way since the day after the 2016 election. For them, everything the president has done is bad, every move sinister, and every policy one more nail in the progressive coffin. To be fair, Trump hasn’t done himself any favors with his incessant Tweets, revolving ...

Why it has to be Biden
Donald Trump has desecrated the values that make America a beacon to the world. THE COUNTRY that elected Donald Trump in 2016 was unhappy and divided. The country he is asking to re-elect him is more unhappy and more divided. After almost four years of his leadership, politics is even angrier than it was and partisanship even less constrained. Daily life is consumed by a pandemic that has registered almost 230,000 deaths amid bickering, buck-pass ...

Why Biden's poll lead is different from Hillary Clinton's
WASHINGTON — For many political junkies and analysts, the 2020 presidential campaign feels eerily familiar. The national polls show that the Democrat has a big lead. Some usually Republican states seem to be in play. And the Trump campaign is relying heavily on a strategy of focusing on its base. It's all very 2016, and it has Trump and Biden supporters wondering whether the result in November could look similar, as well. The similarities t ...

What happens if Joe Biden wins the election by winning at least 270 Electoral College votes but dies before he can take office and be sworn in? What if a winner dies after the Electoral College has voted, but before Congress has certified the vote? After the Electoral College votes, Congress must still convene on Jan. 6 to certify the results. If a presidential candidate won a majority of electoral votes and then died, it is not entirely cl ...

Brett Kavanaugh foreshadows how Supreme Court could disrupt vote counting
(CNN)Justice Brett Kavanaugh on Monday night set the battle lines for how the Supreme Court should consider post-election lawsuits that could determine the outcome of the presidential race. As the court rejected a Democratic attempt to allow mail-in votes, postmarked by Election Day, to be received up to six days after the election in Wisconsin, Kavanaugh also suggested that state courts may not have the last word in interpreting state electio ...

Despite cries of censorship, conservatives dominate social media
Republicans have turned alleged liberal bias in Silicon Valley into a major closing theme of the election cycle, hauling tech CEOs in for virtual grillings on Capitol Hill while President Donald Trump threatens legal punishment for companies that censor his supporters. But a POLITICO analysis of millions of social media posts shows that conservatives still rule online. Right-wing social media influencers, conservative media outlets and othe ...

9 days to go: Biden's lead over Trump is holding, while Clinton's was collapsing at this point
(CNN)The clock is running out on President Donald Trump's chances for a comeback. He continues to trail former Vice President Joe Biden nationally and in the key swing states with just nine days to go. But perhaps most worrisome for the President: Trump's clearly behind his 2016 pace. By this point four years ago, he was rapidly closing the gap with Hillary Clinton. No such advancements can be seen in the 2020 polling against Biden. Right ...

Trump caps three-event day by attacking Barack Hussein Obama after ex-prez mocked him at Biden event
PRESIDENT Donald Trump started a Wisconsin campaign rally by attacking "Barack Hussein Obama" after the former president mocked him at a rally for Joe Biden.

'SNL' final presidential debate sketch is yet again terrible
With nine days to go until the 2020 presidential election, President Trump and former Vice President Joe Biden are making their final pitch to voters. So is “Saturday Night Live.” There is just one more episode of the comedy show to go before Election Day on Nov. 3 — and this week’s penultimate cold open parodying the last presidential debate didn’t change any minds. It was a wash. The situation had been looking up. Oct. 17’s politics sketc ...

Dare we dream of a Joe Biden win? Given all that's at stake, not yet
A friend calls to say he’s been having anxiety dreams about Donald Trump. Another, a highly rational man with a forensic intellect, tells me he’s found himself praying for a Joe Biden victory. A third reports checking polling website fivethirtyeight.com in the dead of night. Sometimes twice. None of these people live in the US, and none is a US citizen. More to the point, none of them is especially neurotic. But something about the US presiden ...
