NBC News reports that Republican early voters are "outpacing" Democrats in key states like "Arizona, Florida, Georgia, Indiana, Montana, Tennessee and Texas," and the difference is significant. In most states mentioned, at least 10% more Republicans have voted early than Democrats.

Not sure how NBC News is counting it (generally they go by past party affiliation), so take this comparison with a grain of salt. In 2016 Dems had 6.9 million early votes and Pubs had 5.6 million. There were an additional 19.5 million early votes by people without party affiliation.

That’s bad news for Democrats, unless Republican voters are voting against the party (while Democrats aren’t) or the swath of voters without a party affiliation is breaking stronger for the D’s. Hard to say, and with Trump’s approval rating hitting 47% in the latest NBC News/WSJ poll, it seems like the middle is likely split.

Message to Democratic voters, get out and vote. Message to Democratic candidates, give them a reason.

My guess is Senior Citizens. Perhaps there were more Ds a couple of decades ago, but the R Boomers are a strong voting block and they are as party loyal as they come.

I read somewhere that really old and young voters vote early. 18-24 and 65+.

Dems are outpacing Reps in my state, Nevada, in early voting. This is most likely because of the Culinary Union. They are very organized, have all their flyers printed in Spanish, and all their buses at the ready to herd everyone to the polls like cattle.

That’s how you get Dems to vote early, Ken. If you’re concerned about turnout, rent a van, pick up Democrats and truck them to the polls.

That's been going on for 230 years.

Is this a quote from a James Henry Hammond speech?

I don’t think so, MB. If anything, I think I admire the Dems ability to mobilize their base. The only thing I resent in the political arena is the corrupt-ass, biased media because they don’t perform their role in this Repiblic in a responsible manner.

True, but you only take offense at the media outlets that are biased against your side. Media bias exists on both sides. It's a fact of life. It's guaranteed by the very first amendment of our Constitution. It's something we as Americans treasure because we are allowed to share our opinions without fear of reprisal from the government.

So quit your bitchin'.

This citizen has an issue with the logistics of the 5,000+ hopeful illegal aliens marching to our border. Admittedly, I have not checked his math, but if it's correct, this is kinda interesting.

There is a significant and unavoidable math problem when it comes to the so-called migrant caravan that is headed toward the United States border. The caravan is now said to have more than 5,000 people from Honduras, El Salvador, Guatemala, and Mexico walking north. The people spilled across the border into Mexico when authorities there claimed to be overwhelmed.

Currently they are just over 1,230 miles from reaching Laredo, Texas. According to Google maps that is a walk that would take more than 400 hours to complete.

So how is it that they are expecting reach the U.S. border by Election Day or before? I mean even if these people with no shelter, food, or water walked 16 hours a day — every day — it would take them more than 25 days to reach Texas. Election Day is now only two weeks away.

You see a lot of things are just not adding up.

If the average person walks 3 miles per hour (and they do) — then walking 16 hours a day would get you 48 miles down the road. However, there are kids and families and chaos it looks like to me.

What’s also remarkable is this group began roughly 1,770 miles from the border. That was just a few days and a couple international borders ago. So they have already covered something like 540 miles. That by the way should have taken more than 11 days — if, and it’s a big if, if they were covering 48 miles a day. Somehow they have been able to travel remarkable distances with TV cameras everywhere and not one reporter has explained this incredible feat.

Did I mention blisters and fatigue? Both would be big factors on such a journey.

I have done some extreme hiking and walking in my life. I was in pretty damn good shape when I did those things. Today walking 48 miles a day on good roads or trails with proper gear, fresh water and ample food would be an epic challenge for me. I have worn my feet raw on some of those trips. It is nearly impossible to cover any distance when your feet are torn up.

What about bathrooms? Are they able to bathe anywhere along the road?

We are expected to believe that this caravan of people 5,000 strong is covering epic distances and yet somehow all of those TV cameras and reporters have missed the buses, cars, and trucks giving these people a ride.

The question is who is picking up the bill? You start figuring out the cost of fuel, food, shelter and all of the other things required to get these folks to the border and its substantial. The logistics is also a serious concern. I mean just coordinating a crowd that large to walk the right direction days after day would be challenging.

Let all of those facts sink in.

This is not random and this is not a coincidence that just a couple weeks out from the critical midterm elections this caravan of hope-to-be-illegal-aliens is on its way to the American border. I just wonder when we will be told the truth about who is behind it and if any network has the courage to tell us.
