“The political crass” …lies, damn lies, and Trump polling with 2 weeks remaining. Actually Bibb County, Trump’s at the middle Georgia regional airport doing more airplane hangar super-spreading.
What’s striking to me about Trump’s “85%” claim is that the CDC study is being misrepresented in some conservative media…but Trump is wildly misrepresenting even the misrepresented version. It’s like a step and then a giant leap removed from the truth. https://t.co/telD17QFRX— Daniel Dale (@ddale8) October 16, 2020

What's new: In reporting out this story, Axios learned that Stepien has described to some colleagues that he sees at least three pathways to 270 electoral votes.
- Stepien tells them the “easy part” is winning Ohio, Florida, Georgia, Iowa and Maine’s second congressional district. From there, the first pathway, and the one he views as most likely, is for Trump to win Arizona, North Carolina, and Pennsylvania.
- His second pathway would be for Trump to win Arizona, North Carolina and Michigan.
- And pathway three — the one Stepien views as least likely of the options — does not include Arizona but involves Trump winning North Carolina, Michigan and Nevada.
- Those states are where Trump will be spending the vast bulk of his time between now and Nov. 3, and where the Trump campaign is spending most of its money.x
Three sources who have heard Stepien use variations of the airplane analogy say they sensed he was deeply, perhaps irretrievably pessimistic about the state of the race.

Most Americans consider Trump dishonest, polls suggest, but he still benefits from the perception that “oh, well, they all lie.” There is literally nobody in Washington office who lies like Trump lies – in frequency, in magnitude, in pointlessness, in sheer weirdness.

And it appears that a white nationalist account was involved with & used a far-right message board to spread that possible Russian disinformation campaign days before the New York Post articles came out. https://t.co/foDvlvyRKp https://t.co/6brnw129l6

Former Trump strategist Steve Bannon boasted weeks ago on Dutch current affairs TV show Nieuwsuur that he had Hunter Biden’s hard drive. “We have the hard drive. I have the hard drive of Hunter Biden,” he said, in a clip.https://t.co/I0L6H7eaRI

1/ I am enraged. Excellent reporting from WSJ's @dseetharaman and @EmilyGlazer finds that Facebook engineers—with sign-off from Zuckerberg himself—retooled their algorithm to throttle traffic to high-value progressive news orgs, @MotherJones IN PARTICULAR https://t.co/BeIYghE1xt pic.twitter.com/emQcZ832Iw

The more @benshapiro bleats about a supposed lefty bias among tech companies, the more we learn about his private arrangements with Mark Zuckerberg to artificially amplify his racist incitement and far-right disinformation outlet. https://t.co/sMmO2Uf5FZ
