    NY Times just reported that George Clooney (following in the steps of Rob Reiner, Stephen King, Michael Moore) paid tribute to Biden and called for him to step aside.

    Add to that a Senator who just came out and said those trying to hang on to Biden risk a Trump landslide, and him taking the Senate and the House.

    If NY is now truly a "Battleground State" does give one pause...

    "It's devastating to say it, but the Joe Biden I was with three weeks ago at the fund-raiser was not the Joe 'big F-ing deal' Biden of 2010. He wasn't even the Joe Biden of 2020. He was the same man we all witnessed at the debate."

    "Cook Political Report moved six states toward Trump in its Electoral College ratings Tuesday, citing Biden's decline in national and private battleground polls shared by both Democratic and GOP sources."

    When I Google Biden, Clooney's comments and the Senator's are the main headlines.

    Probably a good time to take odds of how long Biden survives the onslaught of donors, celebrities, growing but small legislative backlash. Even Pelosi is noncommittal (but not brave enough to speak out against his running).

    If they don't do something soon, Trump may be coming soon to a White House near you in a testosterone haze.

    New York is not going for Trump. We lived with him; we knew what he was about, years--decades--before he first ran for office. People at all levels of society here have been ripped off by him, or otherwise harmed by him. I don't think that Stockholm Syndrome has gotten so bad here that NY will go red or purple in the presidential election.

    And I don't believe polls conducted more than 30 days before the election. We don't even have official candidates yet.

    The reason I ignore political polls is that they already start out all over the place, then one comes out left field (an outlier) with something totally wacky. It gets everyone talking, but doesn't really help with decisions.

    One can make up a poll to show anything one wants, with no way for the public to determine whether the questions are legit, whose doing the poll, who were the people polled, whether AI is involved either in the questions, the analysis, or even as the "targets" polled. No way for us to even ascertain the statistical credibility of the poll.

    This is true. It is the same for news stories. The best way to make sure that you're getting good information is to get it from a reliable source!
