Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Charles Cook is the widely respected doyen of US national politics.  When he says talks people, especially the Big Money People, listen.

... [in] the presidential race, where something pretty major would have to happen to bring President Trump up to an even competitive position. The new NPR/PBS Newshour/Marist poll puts Joe Biden 12 points ahead of Trump, 54 to 42 percent, not much different from the latest NBC News/Wall Street Journal poll, which puts Biden's lead at 11 points, 53 to 42 percent.


The key is that if Trump continues to trail Biden badly and be significantly outspent, do disappointed Republicans stay home, with dramatic down ballot implications from the Senate to congressional seats and into state-legislative chambers as well?

Not what a candidate and a party want to hear with early voting going against you, 2 weeks from election day.
