NPR Moves Georgia from Lean Republican to Tossup

The Friday release of a tape of Republican candidate Donald Trump bragging about his groping and kissing women has led NPR to revise its projected electoral college map, and move Georgia from Lean R to Tossup. NPR is also moving Ohio and Iowa into tossup territory, along with one electoral vote from Nebraska and Maine. Their current projected electoral college vote is 272 for Clinton, 163 for Trump, with 103 tossups.

Polling could change even more based on the results of Sunday night’s debate, and as the impact of the revelations about Trump’s behavior set in. As NPR puts it, “We won’t know for a week at least from polling how exactly all this sets in. How Trump performs Sunday night could either tamp down the flames — or, if Trump brings up Bill Clinton’s past infidelities and attacks Hillary Clinton for them, cause a backdraft never seen before in presidential politics.”

No open thread for the debate shit show????

Very low energy so far. Very low energy. Trump still has the sniffles and looks like he hash’t slept in weeks.

Locker room talk. Come on people. I have some very crude friends and but I’ve never had a friend that brags about sexual assault on the golf course or in the locker room.

S#!t show, indeed. He came out as a whipped puppy to show contrition and then you see snippets of “Crazy @ss Mr Hyde” – the whiny “but you gave HER 25 extra seconds, Anderson” although he interrupts every other sentence like a middle schooler on Mount Dew.

Mr sniffles must have a bad mike again. Or he’s on the nose candy again.

Hillary Clinton is one of the worst candidates that the dems have put up in decades yet she looks like a brilliant and poised candidate.

Moderator – “Mr Trump please tell me how you would address the crisis in Syria?”

Trump – “Word salad! Word salad! Bill likes blow jobs. Disaster. Emails. Emails. Word salad!”

WTF is wrong with this world and our party. Please sweet baby Jesus come save us all now. Come now. There is not enough vodka, bourbon or patience left in this world for us to make it to November.

It’s a tossup alright. Heads you lose, tails you lose.

How we nominate candidates and specifically presidential ones MUST change. Even the founding fathers monkeyed around with it. The legislative branch has devolved to a circular firing squad and the judicial believes corporations get individual rights…

Watching part of tonight’s, um, debate, has me in a mood that makes Eeyore look like a giddy optimist.
