BREAKING: Joe Biden wins Arizona, @NBCNews projects. He’s the first Democrat to win it since 1992, the second since 1952. This gets him to 290 electoral votes. The latest map 👇 https://t.co/TyA2xugBkX — PolitiTweet.org

Favorite type of voter on the campaign trail: the one who's reluctant to talk and first but then agrees, discovers they had ~a lot~ to get off their chest, and flat out unloads. — PolitiTweet.org

@AJentleson Not saying he's always right. I'm saying he's thought this though and calculated that Ds probably won't do it or he'd have approached this fight differently. I think he decided in '13 that provoking the nuke wouldn't hurt his side long haul on net. So far that's proven right. — PolitiTweet.org

Not a joke, folks: Biden says that that once he's president he's gonna "pick up the phone" and calls Republicans "and say, let's get together." He predicts that with Trump gone, "there's going to be, I promise you, between 4 and 8 Republican senators" willing to work with him. — PolitiTweet.org

In July, Trump pushed his party to up the ante, saying the Democrats (who were offering a $3.4 trillion stimulus package) was not being generous enough to the people. But his signals were contradictory and they ignored him. Follow-through wasn’t there and everyone moved on. — PolitiTweet.org

There was a messaging imbalance in 2016. Trump et al emphasized the need for a GOP hold on that seat while Democrats never conveyed to what a 5-4 liberal court could do for their causes, from campaign finance to voting rights, and instead deployed the insipid hashtag #weneednine. — PolitiTweet.org

I’m still shocked this didn’t happen in 2016 when McConnell changed the rules to block Merrick Garland.

Biden, on COVID recession, calls Trump "a president who just doesn't see it. He doesn't feel it. He doesn't understand. He just don't care. He thinks if the stock market is up, then everything is fine. His wealthy friends and donors are doing well? Then everything's doing well." — PolitiTweet.org
