With the US 2024 Presidential Election between sitting President Joseph R Biden and former President Donald J Trump coming up on November 5th, I figured I would post this interactive map, which uses 538’s data. It provides a visual way to illustrate how either candidate can win the Electoral College.

Also, I personally feel the Electoral College is archaic and was built upon the principal of inequality. It is also the only reason George W. Bush and Donald J. Trump even got elected in the first place; neither had the popular vote.

I could write an entire essay on how the US and the world would be better off without the Electoral College, but I would just be preaching to the choir and probably nobody would bother reading it (lol.)

With the US 2024 Presidential Election between sitting President Joseph R. Biden and former President Donald J. Trump coming up on November 5th, I figured I would post 538’s polling in the magazine. It is updated every few hours with new polling data.

I thought this article had some interesting findings that are especially relevant after the latest polls from 538 and the Economist suggested that Trump had a slight edge this coming November. Since 2020:

  • Biden has mostly seen an increase in support from demographics typically associated with high-turnout voters such as those who are college educated, live in suburbia, women, and even some older and white voters.

  • Trump, in contrast, has generally seen an increase in demographics associated with low-turnout voters such as those with no college education and men. He has also slightly increased his support amongst black and Hispanic youths.

Hopefully, this means Trump’s increased support does not translate into actual votes on November 5th. For Trump to win another term would be a complete disaster not just for the United States, but also the world.

I still remember when Biden said "Will you shut up, man?" to Trump during the first debate. It was cathartic. Him needling Trump over his age and other oddities feels similar lol.

I doubt it will it will change many minds about him, but after eight years of Trump slinging shit all over the place I do enjoy seeing it get thrown back at him.
