Overhead at Trump’s rally today in Circleville, Ohio: “A lot of accomplishments, if you can get over the personality traits.” A good synopsis of what we hear from many 2016 Trump voters who are considering voting for him again

Trump again downplays the pandemic amidst an all time spike in cases yesterday, telling supporters in OH, “And it is going away, it’s rounding the turn...the news, CNN, all they talk about, Covid, Covid, Covid, Covid, if a plane goes down w/ 500 people, they don’t talk about it.”

Then Trump played clips of Sanders hitting Biden during primary debate. Trump making a clear play here in Ohio for white working class voters for whom there’s some Trump-Sanders crossover appeal. He’s praising Sanders & arguing his primary loss was unfair (2/2)

In Thursday’s debate, Biden challenged Trump to “show the tape” of him opposing fracking. Today, at his rally here in Circleville, Ohio, Trump is doing just that: Playing tape of Biden talking about winding down & banning fracking (1/2)

It used to be that when national reporters parachuted into town for a campaign swing, you’d study up on the county’s last election results, party registration , recent polls. Now it’s positivity rate, ICU bed usage, mask mandate status

The US has a longstanding commitment to maintaining Israel's Qualitative Military Edge (QME) over its neighbors. The Israelis are finessing this point by saying since the US is upgrading other Israeli military capabilities, it maintains QME over UAE even if they get F-35s (2/3)
