I don't care what the polls say, there is only one that matters, and that's on November 3rd.
HRC was ahead in the polls and look what happened there.

It worries me what Trump might do to keep power, voter supression, delaying the election, data harvesting on social media...

I don’t think he can delay the election as it is built into the constitution. Would take a heck of a lot to move it I understand.

Twitter have just blocked Trumps account. Should have done it a long time back.

What we see in the US is a consequence of social media platforming all sorts of unsubstantiated nonsense. Worryingly this is also playing out in the Covid context. We'd be naive to think it couldn't happen here.

having seen the road closures and heavily armed US security surrounding Buckingham Palace when Trump visited a few years ago my question is, where were they yesterday on Capitol Hill? And how come people were allowed to leave the building without being arrested?

The whole scenario leaves me bewildered, Lovejoy. How Trump isn't being prosecuted for incitement to disturb the peace/causing loss of life baffles me.
