Something is very strange this election cycle.
President Donald Trump has a 98% approval rating with the GOP and prior to the COVID shutdown, almost every demographics employment and unemployment numbers were as record levels.
On the Democratic presidential ticket, you have Joe Biden who did not accomplish anything significant over his 47 years on Capitol Hill and is losing his cognitive abilities and sleeps all the time. His running mate, Kamala Harris, who is unpopular and has been absent too since being chosen to run.
Yet the media is telling us the Biden ticket is way ahead of President Trump – Biden Now Predicted to Win 352 Electoral Votes: FiveThirtyEight
Biden took the rest of the day off early Friday afternoon upon returning home in Delaware from Washington, D.C. after attending the morning memorial at the Capitol for Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg.
Daily Mail reporter Nikki Schwab relayed the announcement by the campaign of a ‘lid’, noting that President Trump will likely make light of Biden taking yet another day off from campaigning, “.@JoeBiden is back home in Wilmington (they drove, so @DrBiden could fly to Maine) and a “lid” has been called – which @realDonaldTrump will likely have a field day about.”
To give you an idea of how much time Joe is taking off, I posted the following calendar found on Alec Sear’s Twitter page.
It shows how many days Biden has gone dark before the day gets going in September. In addition to those days off on the calendar, Biden also took yesterday off which will be added in the next update.
Regardless of what the liberal pollsters are telling us, polls are tightening in favor of Trump as the election draws closer.
At the same time, Biden is taking so many days off this month with early voting already occurring in several states, some Democrats and media are starting to voice concerns that he is blowing the election.
The AP on Friday (excerpt):
The final stretch of a presidential campaign is typically a nonstop mix of travel, caffeine and adrenaline. But as the worst pandemic in a century bears down on the United States, Joe Biden is taking a lower key approach.
Since his Aug. 11 selection of California Sen. Kamala Harris as his running mate, Biden has had 22 days where he either didn’t make public appearances, held only virtual fundraisers or ventured from his Delaware home solely for church, according to an Associated Press analysis of his schedules. He made 12 visits outside of Delaware during that period, including Friday when he went to Washington and paid respects to the late Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg.
During the same time, President Donald Trump had 24 trips that took him to 17 different states, not counting a personal visit to New York to see his ailing brother in the hospital or weekend golf outings. He was hitting Florida, Georgia, Virginia and the nation’s capital on Friday alone.
Biden’s aides insist his approach is intentional, showcasing his respect for public health guidelines aimed at preventing the spread of the coronavirus and presenting a responsible contrast with Trump, who has resumed large-scale campaign rallies — sometimes over the objections of local officials. Still, some Democrats say it’s critical that Biden infuse his campaign with more energy.
Texas Democratic Party Chairman Gilberto Hinojosa said not traveling because of the pandemic was a “pretty lame excuse.”
…Biden so far hasn’t spent the night anywhere while campaigning, flying back to Delaware to sleep at home every night. The cautious approach isn’t shared by Biden’s wife, Jill, who was in Washington with her husband on Friday morning but then flew to Maine, after making four campaign stops in Virginia the previous day. She’s going to Iowa, another state her husband has yet to visit in recent months, on Saturday…
Morning Joe worried that the lack of in-person campaigning by Biden and his campaign is hurting his chances:

Another MSNBC report on concerns the Trump campaign is out hustling the Biden campaign:
The comment by Trump-hating former AP reporter Ron Fournier cited by Joe Scarborough and Kasie Hunt, “Yes, and it’s part of a bigger issue: If the @JoeBiden campaign is doesn’t start running likes it’s losing, it’s gonna lose. Michigan for one is in peril. You read that right. This run-out-the-clock strategy is insane”
Biden is scheduled to give a virtual speech Saturday to the virtual meeting of the U.S. Conference of Mayors’ Fall Leadership Meeting.
President Trump at a rally in Jacksonville, Florida on Thursday night talking about how hard he’s working compared to Biden calling a lid:
UPDATE: Lid reversed for a few minutes for Biden to do a remote interview with MSNBC this afternoon.
I sure do hate situations like this. The Biden team is not “present” during this campaign, is pitching Marxism yet the polls are showing he has a real chance of beating President Trump, it just doesn’t add up to me.
It appears Joe is running as a placeholder for Kamala, as she can take over after the election and though not popular, ruthless.
With all the voter fraud already underway, stories on postal workers throwing away ballots, and swing states allowing ballot harvesting and ballots to be turned in and counted up to 9 days AFTER the election, does Joe’s team believe (been told) the election will be stolen regardless of what Joe does?
Though I see the huge Trump rallies, I am not feeling very good about WI, MI, PA, FL, or NC, just 38 days out, and praying for a huge rush of additional support before November 3rd.
