[World] Sowing, Reaping, and Locking

One of the great rallying cries of the 2016 election was “Lock her up!” Hillary Clinton was never a very likable candidate, despite Barack Obama’s comment in 2008 that she was “likeable enough.” She wasn’t, really. And she always just seemed corrupt. Partly it was because she was married to an obviously corrupt man. Bill […]

[Markets] Texas Early Voting Just Surpassed All Votes Cast In 2016; Hawaii Breaks 2008 Record Texas Early Voting Just Surpassed All Votes Cast In 2016; Hawaii Breaks 2008 Record Tyler Durden Fri, 10/30/2020 - 09:50

Early voting in Texas and Hawaii have broken records - with Texas having surpassed the total number of ballots cast in the 2016 election, and Hawaii breaking their previous turnout record in 2008, when Barack Obama was elected president.

In Texas, at least 9,009,850 votes have been cast, surpassing the state's record of 8,969,226 cast in 2016. It is not known which party will benefit most from the surge.

According to Bloomberg, "Nowhere has seen a more dramatic display of enthusiasm than Harris County, home to Houston, Texas’s biggest city and the embodiment of its rapid growth and diversifying suburbs. The county’s voting, driven in part by innovations by freshly appointed County Clerk Chris Hollins, so far compose more than 15% of all those cast in the sprawling state."

As we noted on Thursday, the flood of early voting has some Democrats hopeful that they can flip the historically red state blue, as a flood of Californians have been moving to the state over the last few years to escape high taxes and squalor in its major cities. If they are able to flip the state blue, one has to wonder if San Francisco's drug needle and poo-coated streets are next?

Many of the Texas counties with the most dramatic surges in early voting are urban centers like Houston, a trend infusing fresh hope into Democrats’ dreams of flipping Texas. But solidly red counties have also seen records. And Texas has historically been lightly polled, leaving analysts skeptical of surveys showing a neck-and-neck presidential race. -Bloomberg

In Hawaii, statewide voter turnout as of Tuesday was approximately 55% according to the county clerks' offices. Of the 830,000 individuals registered to vote in the November 3 general election, 457,294 ballots have been received, according to Honolulu Civil Beat.

Tuesday was the last day voters in Hawaii were asked to mail in ballots. Between now and election day, voters can use a drop box or vote in person at a voter service center.

[Politics] 'Day of Shame' for British Labor The decision of the British Labor Party Thursday to suspend its former leader, Jeremy Corbyn, over anti-Semitism is an astonishing development. It follows an official finding that party officials had failed to deal with anti-Semitism in the party and committed "unlawful acts of harassment and discrimination." When Mr. Corbyn reacted by blaming exaggerations by political his opponents, the party promptly suspended him. It is, at least from this side of the Atlantic, a breathtaking moment all... 10/30/2020 9:07:31 AM
