Re "the country has rejected MAGA in 2018, 2020, 2022 and 2023," I think it's important to always add "and in 2016." Hillary Clinton won the popular vote in an election that may have been manipulated to win the Electoral College. It's important to add this because the American people have rejected MAGA/Donald Trump in every single election they have been on the ballot. The American people rejected Trump before he was even president.

FYI, Postcards to Voters has just added addresses for Tom Keen in FL and will soon add addresses for Tom Suozzi in NY.

Thanks as always Simon. I keep reading that Republicans are going to make 2024 all about immigration and we’re in trouble because that’s a “wedge issue” for Dems. That smells like red wavy BS to me but would like to hear your thoughts on this. The caravan nonsense didn’t work before and I find I hard to believe immigration is going to top women begging courts to have abortions as a more salient issue, but maybe I’m missing something.

“And a little child shall lead them”, and while this man was not a child, the inferred message is the same. Speak up, stand proud and say what has to be said. Very well stated young man, very well said.

Simon - do you see this anti-Biden bias in essentially all forms of mainstream media? Whether it’s the NYT, CBS or ABC they regularly criticize and question the President and his admin, while seemingly being afraid to call out Republicans and their lies and anti-democratic agenda.

What do we do about this? I wish we could keep a running list or Twitter account of all the anti-Biden media that is constantly flooding the mainstream - almost like what Aaron Rupar does, but for media anchors. It’s really quite shocking and profound when you become aware of it.

Two thoughts on RFK Jr.:1. I find that it is more effective to expose his position in favor of replacing the $US Dollar with Bitcoin or other crypto than the vaccine stuff. This would limit the power of government to trace money, a field day for drug dealers, tax evaders, international arms dealers, and white collar crooks. They aren't gonna take my IRA and convert it to Bitcoin! 2. RFK is partly enabled by our Democratic shopworn strategy of narrowing the map and showering resources on last cycles 3 or 4 swing states and starving everybody else. Here in Missouri, RFK is selling out rallies and doing real grassroots organizing -- Democrats aren't. He has stepped into a political vacuum that weak Democrats helped create.

So I'm assuming that if Trump is able to implement his plan immigrants, we'll all have to be carrying "papers" to be produced anytime our citizenship is questioned.

Am postcarding for Suozzi and am grateful for this community.

Hi Simon, I’m here in Missoula Montana helping with a family emergency. I noticed a President Biden Infrastructure Project sign here and took pictures of the site. Is there a way to send them to you? It’s such a great local project that it filled me with pride thinking about the good things we can do together.🙏

RFK Jr. has a field office on the downtown mall in Charlottesville, VA. Frequently there is a table out and they are talking to people. I wonder if they are setting up shop in very progressive places to try and peel off voters? I don't think many people here would be falling for that flim flam man but it is concerning. I would love to see Dems with that level of grassroots presence at this point here.

I am curious about respondents to polls. My guess is that many people on our side are not answering phone calls if they don't recognize the number. I have never been personally contacted by any recognizable pollster. I get "surveys" in my inbox and texts from random organizations, but I don't answer them anymore because they always ask for money and I have no idea who they are. And sometimes the questions are phrased in ridiculous ways like: "Are you against crime?" or "Do you think terrorists should be allowed to come in through the southern border?"

So I am wondering:

1) Are the samples really random and representative?

2) Doesn't the self-selection involved invalidate the results?

3) Is it possible that MAGAs encourage people to respond to polls?

4) Should WE be responding to polls?

Thanks
