Re: So....What's going to happen November 4?

They have corrected quite a bit, especially the amount of less educated peiole they poll. There is no law of nature saying the polling error margins would tip in his direction again this time either way, though. I have been assuming Joe Biden will win this.

Re: Terror attack in Vienna

We don’t know if it was Islamists yet, do we?
I am not saying it is not, but remember Vienna is a strong symbol both of the far right and Islamists. 1683 and all of that..
The rest of us, across the political spectrum is just angered and sad over uneccesary killing and pain, as always.
