With a Week to Go, It’s Looking Like a Landslide

With seven days to go, the Economist poll aggegrate shows Joe Biden as far ahead of Donald Trump as ever:

Here are their state-level predictions:

I really, really want to see a landslide election. I want Republicans to lose the presidency, lose the Senate, lose the House, and lose a bunch of state legislatures. I want them to be crushed for the sin of supporting Donald Trump for the past four years. I am so looking forward to this.

POSTSCRIPT: Are you still paranoid because of 2016? I don’t blame you. So am I. But 2016 was a massive outlier. And keep in mind that, contrary to conventional wisdom, the 2016 polls weren’t actually very far off. There’s no reason to think this year’s polls will be either.

A BETTER WAY TO DO THIS?

We have an ambitious $350,000 online fundraising goal this month and we can't afford to come up short. But when a reader recently asked how being a nonprofit makes Mother Jones different from other news organizations, we realized we needed to lay this out better: Because "in absolutely every way" is essentially the answer.

So we tried to explain why your year-end donations are so essential, and we'd like your help refining our pitch about what make Mother Jones valuable and worth reading to you.

We'd also like your support of our journalism with a year-end donation if you can right now—all online gifts will be doubled until we hit our $350,000 goal thanks to an incredibly generous donor's matching gift pledge.
