Good Ol’ Joe Biden Is Kicking Donald Trump’s Ass

A couple of weeks ago I scoffed at the notion that everyone was claiming Joe Biden was the most electable Democrat. But guess what? It kinda looks like he is:

At the moment, Biden is the only Democrat beating Trump in a head-to-head matchup by more than a point or two. And that’s after the tough treatment he got from Kamala Harris in the last debate.

It’s early days and things change. There’s no reason to take this too seriously. Still, at this point it looks like good ol’ Grampa Joe is by far the strongest Democrat against Grampa Donald.


We recently wrapped up the crowdfunding campaign for our ambitious Mother Jones Corruption Project, and it was a smashing success. About 10,364 readers pitched in with donations averaging $45, and together they contributed about $467,374 toward our $500,000 goal.

That's amazing. We still have donations from letters we sent in the mail coming back to us, so we're on pace to hit—if not exceed—that goal. Thank you so much. We'll keep you posted here as the project ramps up, and you can join the hundreds of readers who have alerted us to corruption to dig into.
