Starting the week, a lot to watch. Most of it centers around the election and Coronavirus.
It still stuns me just how many people have already voted. CNN says that two-thirds of all that voted in the 2016 presidential election have already voted. That’s a lot of enthusiasm. I wonder what Tuesday will bring? How easy might it be to vote? No lines?
Florida will be a big win for whichever candidate takes it. The Real Clear Politics average has Joe Biden leading Donald Trump by just 1.4 points here (as of November 2). It’s that close.
President Trump was down in South Florida and said something that might make a difference. The crowd starting chanting, “Fire Fauci, fire Fauci.” President Trump then said, “Don’t tell anybody, but let me wait until a little bit after the election. I appreciate that. I appreciate that.”
Depending on what you think of Dr. Fauci, it might make a difference to some undecided voters.
I’m just hoping we have a clear picture of things Tuesday night. We may not have all the results, but I hope we have a good idea of where this is going. I also hope everybody plays nice.
The United States reported nearly 100,000 cases on Friday. A surge is definitely happening.
The New York Times has an interesting story related to Covid antibodies. It’s encouraging too. Essentially, the piece says, don’t worry if your level of antibodies drops after having the virus. It’s normal for antibodies to drop after an infection. Immune cells though can make fresh antibodies if needed.
So, here we are. The election is upon us. Covid isn’t backing down. I think both of these stories will be with us for a long time.
