    What Really Grinds My Gears 5

    My kids went to a party in Sydney a year or two ago, the dad was an old punk rock guy, he let them loose on some wet concrete as an activity, but neglected to tell my kids not to put their full names

    From what I’ve read there are two main changes that should in theory make the polls more accurate this time. Firstly there are a lot less voters who respond as “undecided”. This group was huge in 2016 and mostly went to Trump, probably because they liked what he was saying but didn’t want to be seen as a Trump supporter. Most pollsters don’t try to predict what they’ll do so it adds a lot of potential error to their models. This year people have picked a side so the polls account for a lot more people. Secondly a lot of pollsters now adjust for education level. Most didn’t factor this in to their models in 2016 and when they applied it retrospectively it explained some of the polling error. The biggest worry this time isn’t the polls being wrong, they could be spot on but none of them factor in the Republicans being rat bastards when it comes to voter suppression and getting the courts to discard ballots they don’t like.

    We need to insert a poll into this thread, who are our picks? Biden. Has to be him, history can’t repeat 2016 when the polls got it wrong. We can’t have another 4 years of madness.

    Can recommend the Irish pub in the centre of town for a drink and feed..then pop over the road to Wendy's for an ice cream... Watch out for the speed cameras on the race track.. Great fun driving that though pretending you are in the race...until someone told me I did it the wrong way round and so turned around and did it the other way too....

    Council have been doing work on footpaths here all week. Yesterday they showed up at 7am to start using angle grinders to cut the rebar. Today it was quarter to 6 with a cement truck that's been banging away with the workers yelling at each other for two hours now.

    Animals/Pets thread

    I'm about to experience something new. I haven't had a pet/animal to look after since childhood (which equates to never). I've mentioned elsewhere about a recent family loss, the funeral is in Mudgee on Friday. So, on Thursday, my son and his family are going there for a few days. They have a young Chihuahua that needs looking after while they are away. While we would have gone to Mudgee ourselves, we have been asked to look after Rosie for a few days. We'll have to change a few things. To start with, Rosie isn't up to completing our daily walk. I'm looking forward to it all.

    The part about voter suppression is so worrisome. Republicans can’t win the popular vote anymore and so they depend on nasty tactics and then the law courts which they have stacked over the last four years.

    Trump would need to win Georgia, Pensilvania and Carolina and flip either Arizona or Nevada which are currently projected for Biden... He has zero room for error, looking good for Biden...he has more options to win. One state mention above is confirmed for Biden game over..nearly there....

    Jeeez a rollercoaster. It's coming increasingly close to Trump's only chance being legal tricks that stop the counts & throw out mail votes.

    The bookies freaked out for a bit there and had Trump as a massive favourite bit they’ve shifted back and Biden is favourite. Michigan looks like it’ll go to Biden as Detroit still has a lot of votes left to count. Same for Nevada and Vegas. He’s almost there in Wisconsin which should be enough although Georgia could still go blue. Looks like the will of the people is Biden. Time to see what the will of the courts is.

    it just tells you everything you need to know what you need know about Americans haha I'm not a trump fan - but at least he's done a lot of things he said he would do. I just remember Obama talking for 8 years about what he was going to do. He came and left with hardly any major change, few friends who are American have commented this to me as well.

    Firstly, can't understand how the Polls keep getting it so badly wrong and secondly I can't believe how the Democrat machine (yes I know Biden is weak as piss) couldn't beat an erratic, volatile and vindictive buffoon like Trump. Admittedly there is some way to go yet.

    Just signed K-Rudd's petition 500,000+ signatures for Scumbo (Scott Morrison) to ignore. Just like they, the conservatives, want to set up a toothless Federal Commission against corruption, they want to ignore this one.

    Even if Biden wins he'll have a problem that the Dems aren't likely to flip the Senate. Combine that with the massive stack in the Supreme Court and his Presidency might well be a lame duck for anything but Executive Orders and anything the Republicans would vote for anyway.
