This could also be because more Republicans than expected are voting by mail, so that the early margins for Democrats end up below projections. Or there are more Democrats who got second thoughts about mail voting and decided to go for in person early voting instead. Which btw is what I epxect a ton of Republicans to do, so that election day turnout itself will also fall short of projections. Particularly in states with a current surge in covid cases.
Those are all good points.
I do think most Trump voters though won't be discouraged by rising COVID cases in regards to voting in person if they have already mentally decided they were going to do so. Theres a good amount of the Trump base that is really enthusiastic for the guy, add in that category is usually pro opening things up, against lockdowns, more likely to try to live their lives normally as much as they can.
The opposite of that seems to be true in many cases with Democrats. Democrats seem to live more fear based around COVID.
Exceptions of course to all of this.
And hey we never know, like I said, could expect Trump voters to flood the polls on Nov. 3rd and instead few come.This post was edited by GLYC123 on Oct 23 2020 10:22pm
