Yea, responsility vs. ego. Stamford Univ. study ties 30,000 cases of covid and 700 deaths to trump rallies.Biden had virtually no one attend his pathetic rallies and Trump had massive turn out and enthusiasm at his. The media played this down so much that many don't even know that fact.
Name them with details please. Not the Q versions.There are currently some very serious anomalies being litigated in those swing states that could very well account for SJ getting all those votes that were reported in those swing states.
Without checking your numbers I would venture a guess that with all the publicity surrounding the issue people were more careful.The biggest fact that is undeniable at this point is that this is the highest amount of mail in ballots in American history. Accompany that with the lowest rejection rate for mail in ballots in American history in key swing states. This never happened before, EVER!
If there are no verifiable paper ballots, you don't have any recourse for potential fraud that may have occurred.
How is it different? Both in person (even Dominion machines) and mail in have paper ballots. There are several states that are mail in only.In my area, there was a very secure easy to verify paper ballot that was generated and could be used in a recount if necessary. When it comes to mail-in ballots, the level of security for verification of the vote goes way down. Mail-in ballots were never meant to be used on a mass scale as they were used in this particular election.
I think early voting and mail in is great. It increases participation.I don't think they should ever be used in mass like that ever again for this very reason.
probably not as many as from the super spreader rallies but who knows , its too soon to tell.I wonder how many voters died from voting in person this year?
I have no idea how Stamford U decided they could attribute all these cases and deaths to Trump rallies since their methodology is a secret but you should at least note that Fox actually carries "news" whether it is pro-Trump or not and you can't say that for any of your other sources. If its positive for Trump and they can't spin it, they ignore it. Fox carries the bad with the good. I do wonder if there were any "mostly peaceful" demonstrations in nearby cities during the relevant timeframes. We already know that people doing contact tracing were specifically told to ignore these "mostly peaceful" protests.Yea, responsility vs. ego. Stamford Univ. study ties 30,000 cases of covid and 700 deaths to trump rallies.
Heres the fox news version cause I know you trust them https://www.fox5ny.com/news/study-trump-rallies-caused-over-30000-covid-cases-led-to-over-700-deaths
Not a secret Pat. Heres a copy of the report https://siepr.stanford.edu/sites/default/files/publications/20-043.pdfI have no idea how Stamford U decided they could attribute all these cases and deaths to Trump rallies since their methodology is a secret
I would explain it as 3,088,123 ballots were requested and 2,628,183 were returned as per this screenshot from the SOS's office.How would you explain ~1.8 million ballots sent out but ~ 2.5 million returned? The numbers might not be exact but they are from PA's own data
PIPA also conducted a statistical study on purported misinformation evidenced by registered voters before the 2010 election. According to the results of the study, "... false or misleading information is widespread in the general information environment ..." but viewers of Fox News were more likely to be misinformed on specific issues when compared to viewers of comparable media, that this likelihood also increased proportionally to the frequency of viewing Fox News and that these findings showed statistical significance.
A 2007 Pew Research Center poll of general political knowledge ("Who is the governor of your state?", "Who is the President of Russia?") indicated that Fox News Channel viewers scored 35% in the high-knowledge area, the same as the national average. This was not significantly different than local news, network news and morning news, and was slightly lower than CNN, standing for "Cable News Network" (41%). Viewers of The O'Reilly Factor (51%) scored in the high category along with Rush Limbaugh (50%), NPR (51%), major newspapers (54%), Newshour with Jim Lehrer (53%) The Daily Show (54%) and The Colbert Report (54%).
A 2010 Stanford University survey found "more exposure to Fox News was associated with more rejection of many mainstream scientists' claims about global warming, [and] with less trust in scientists". A 2011 Kaiser Family Foundation survey on U.S. misperceptions about health care reform found that Fox News viewers had a poorer understanding of the new laws and were more likely to believe in falsehoods about the Affordable Care Act such as cuts to Medicare benefits and the death panel myth. A 2010 Ohio State University study of public misperceptions about the so-called "Ground Zero Mosque", officially named Park51, found that viewers who relied on Fox News were 66% more likely to believe incorrect rumors than those with a "low reliance" on Fox News.
In 2011, a study by Fairleigh Dickinson University found that New Jersey Fox News viewers were less well informed than people who did not watch any news at all. The study employed objective questions, such as whether Hosni Mubarak was still in power in Egypt.
They found what they wanted to find.The methodology starts on page 5.
“We’re not saying the protests didn’t cause more cases, an assessment that will require substantial, additional analyses” he added. “It’s just that if they were the key drivers, then you would expect the places that had the most protesters to have the biggest surge, and, in fact, the opposite is the case.”
One possible explanation may lie in the increasing scientific consensus that indoor proximity may be the dominant path in the transmission of SARS-CoV-2, the coronavirus that causes COVID-19.
“As such,” the study found, “it is possible that proximity outdoors might not have a major impact on spread.”
I believe the differences being that the protests are outside, people are more mobile, not stationary, and a larger percentage of the people are wearing masks.
Trump also held several indoor rallies whereas none of the protests were inside that I can recall.
Finally, although this is more preliminary, evidence suggests that if you’re going to be in a crowd, a mobile one is better than a stationary one. None of these three aspects will protect you from infection definitively – but together they offer a modest level of risk reduction. And compared with the risk of catching Covid-19 that is present in many jobs or other activities, such as working in meat-packing plants, outdoor protests are likely to be much safer– especially if we carry out testing, which can quickly reveal if the virus is spreading among protesters, as Massachusetts has done recently.
wait, I see no masks anywhere, except the military ones.Biden has spoken up. Has trump?(the guy with the bully pulpit)
regardless of what they're doing, do you notice the difference in the photos? count the masks.

I dont think the guys with masks in this picture are wearing them because of the virus, do you?

Four recent polls — including one released this week by Civis Analytics, a data science firm that works with businesses and Democratic campaigns — suggest that about 15 million to 26 million people in the United States have participated in demonstrations over the death of George Floyd and others in recent weeks.
