CNBC reports that Republican pollster Frank Luntz lauded Mr.Biden's DNC acceptance speech noting that it was "very strong on unity" and that he's in a "strong position compared to Trump". Frank also posits that "I do believe that Joe Biden is ahead with a 7.6 percentage point lead over Trump". The Trump campaign did not immediately respond to CNBC’s request for comment on Luntz’s interview. Duh - wonder why!

You go Joe!

I desperately hope that Luntz gave a veracious evaluation of the situation. Otherwise, if Trump manages to be reelected, it could possibly be the final days of the "UNITED" States. It would surely be good for this country to once again, be respected by other nations. Across the 10 European countries, views of the U.S. tilt toward the negative (a median of 43% favorable vs. 52% unfavorable) as reported by the Pew Research Center.

I thought I was the word guy

I thought I was the word guy and you were the math guy, and then you make me go look up "veracious." Good word. :)

Anyway, spot on. Luntz is a tool, but I hope he's right.

Trump said today that the convention was the "darkest and angriest and gloomiest in American history." He also said they attacked America for being "racist and horrible."

Not sure what speeches he was watching, but I heard light, hope, healing, compassion and love. Trump doesn't relate to any of that, though. So I guess all he can do is project.

That was a very small room.

In the garden, growth has it seasons. First comes spring and summer, but then we have fall and winter. And then we get spring and summer again.

“I was shocked that former President Obama left so many vacancies and didn’t try to fill those positions,” Hannity said. McConnell chortled in response. “I’ll tell you why,” he said. “I was in charge of what we did the last two years of the Obama administration.”

Joe will have enough, give money to Dem senate candidates.
