He thinks October still allows for a “surprise.” He thinks people aren’t voting already, or the cake isn’t already baked. By all accounts, undecided voters are a sliver of the voters now. And Ruth Bader Ginsburg is the first woman in history to lie in state in the Capitol. She was also honored at the Supreme Court, an almost as rare accolade. That kind of “celebrity” is not to be ignored in this equation; but of course, Lamar! and all the GOP prefers to.Lamar! — saying it out loud >— Jonathan Martin (@jmartNYT) September 25, 2020
“Either the election can be about Trump or about Covid or about the Supreme Court. And I think, of those three, if it’s about the Supreme Court, that traditionally has helped Republicans more.”
The idea that the voting public is going to forget about 200,000 deaths and a collapsed economy or the last almost 4 years in favor of rallying behind a Supreme Court Justice nobody’s ever heard of is so pathetic it’s almost laughable. Almost. The idea the public really doesn’t care about Ginsburg or her still warm seat on the bench is just blindly stupid. And playing a game we all stopped playing 4 years ago.
I’m not saying victory is ours, but man, the opposition seems to be playing the wrong game on the wrong field.
