Gee, who do you think the majority of them voted for?

More than 860,000 Americans have already cast their vote in the 2020 election—a number much higher than the reported 9,525 votes that were returned at this point in 2016.
At least 866,734 people have voted in this year’s election as of September 26, according to the U.S. Elections Project, which is run by University of Florida political science professor Michael McDonald. The number is based on 25 states whose early voting data is available, meaning it does not convey the entire picture.
“These states are those where I have current data on mail ballot activity,” McDonald wrote in a blog post Saturday morning. “More states will be added as state reports become available.”
Still, the large number is a sign of Americans’ excitement for the upcoming election, as well as an increased commitment to voting early fueled by the coronavirus pandemic and concern over U.S. Postal Service delays.
I have to tell you that this gives me real hope for a Democratic blowout this election cycle.
But that certainly does not mean that if you haven’t yet voted that you can skip it because if we are going to make sure to defeat Donald Trump we literally need every vote we can possibly get.
I personally have a plan to vote early as soon as that is possible in early October.
I was going to vote by mail, but they are requesting witness signatures and placing other bullshit obstacles in the way to make that more challenging.
We typically do not have long lines for early voting so I feel relatively safe, though I have to say that if voting Donald Trump out of office kills me that is not a bad sacrifice.
I love my country and I will do anything I can to keep the fascist in the White House from remaining in power.
