Seems unfortunate to me that Trump’s entire debate strategy was thrown off course by him being unable to remember how to pronounce Bobulinksi.

Some energy facts: — Trump’s approval rating has been consistently negative. — More reliance on wind/solar is overwhelmingly popular. — Less reliance on oil is at least not-unpopular.

Preliminary results from the snap debate poll: A majority of voters who watched the debate say Biden won (52% Biden, 41% Trump, 7% undecided) and moderates in particular think Biden won by a 2:1 margin

Trump was right about WSJ piece. There’s a bombshell here: “Text messages and emails related to the venture that were provided to the Journal by Mr. Bobulinski...don’t show either Hunter Biden or James Biden discussing a role for Joe Biden in the venture.”

An underrated difference from 2016 — Trump used to take popular positions on economics, like being open to a minimum wage hike

Even bigger than Hunter Biden’s failed business ventures?

You would not really know this from People Yelling About Politics but oil & gas employment reached a local peak midway through Obama’s second term, then declined sharply, and has not really rebounded under Trump.

Also the HBCU funding was a permanent extension of a boost that started with a 2007 bill led by Dem Congress, and extended during the ACA reconciliation bill. Kept funding from going away.

Hate to be controversial on here but the Civil Rights Act was a bigger deal than a funding boost for HBCUs.

Remember 27 years ago when “tough on crime” themes were the centerpiece of the RNC?

Gotta credit Joe Biden’s early leadership back in 2015!

Just the fact that there was a discussion of the minimum wage is a huge win for Biden.

Well, he’s hitting more traditional liberal notes so some people like that a lot more.

Yeah but he didn’t have the citations down; should’ve hired DS.

Biden must release his longform birth certificate to prove he’s from Scranton.
