Did you vote? Good. Then let's prepare to say a not-so-fond farewell to these horrible people. Don't let the door hit you in the ass, guys!

So, if anyone is still impressed by the 7.4% US growth from the 2nd to 3rd quarter — do NOT use annual rates! — the Euro area grew 12.7%. In both cases it's a partial snapback that still leaves us way down from pre-covid; in both cases rising cases bode very badly for the future

Our forecast has TX as a toss up. But success in TX on election night will be measured from the bottom up- NOT the top down. AS I've been highlighting for months- the TX state house has potential to flip & Ds could win up to 6 House seats. If that happens, THAT's a HUGE D night pic.twitter.com/dPCP9ZDKpf

Guys. GUYS. This is it, the last weekend before the elections. Do your phone banking, drive your neighbors to drop off their ballots. You all voted, right? RIGHT?
And I finally get to tell you what I think: Biden by 8+. I think the pollsters are under polling likely voters, because the under-24 turnout right now is so huge, there's no way they adjusted for it. So here's what I see:
CLEAR EYES. FULL HEARTS. CAN'T LOSE!
And this will be my celebration song, after the entire world heaves a sigh of relief: "Is it really over? He lost?"
