The slow collapse of the Trump autogolpe

first_imgRon Brownstein/Atlantic:Democrats’ 2024 Problem Is Already ClearJoe Biden succeeded in bridging his party’s past and future coalitions—but the challenges of future elections are daunting.That stark contrast—between Biden’s resounding popular-vote victory and his narrow win in crucial swing states—encapsulates the challenge Democrats will likely face in the coming decade. Biden’s victory underscores how Democrats now represent a larger coalition than Republicans do: It marks the seventh time in the past eight presidential elections that Democrats have won the popular vote, an unprecedented feat since the formation of the modern party system in 1828. But combined with Republican gains in the House of Representatives and Democrats’ inability to win any Senate seats in the states that backed Donald Trump, the close swing-state results illustrate why it may be extremely difficult for that majority coalition to consistently exercise its power in the years ahead. Politico:How Biden swung the religious voteTrump’s team thought religious-minded voters would save him in key states. They now appear to have turned away just enough for him to lose.For months, President Donald Trump’s top aides and religious allies dismissed his softening support with white evangelicals and Catholic voters as a polling fluke — another media-spun narrative intended to frighten the incumbent Republican and his top donors. No president had ever done more for these demographics, they claimed, pointing to the unfettered access many conservative Christian groups had to the Trump administration and the influence they wielded over policy priorities and judicial nominees. xKind of funny how Dems are the ones who are supposed to “reform their strategy” when we’re the ones who got the highest % of the vote against an incumbent since 1932 and flipped states we haven’t won on a Prez level since the 1990s.— Alec (@alecbwhite) November 13, 2020WaPo: xOkay we are getting started with our focus group.

The lack of merit in the legal complaints means they will be dead on arrival in the courts, and while the resounding rejection of Trump’s fantasies by judges will not persuade his fiercest loyalists, it will prevent conspiracy theories from spreading. xCases nationwide are trending up more quickly than at any point in the pandemic.

I think that has been an ongoing problem in opposing Trump.— Danny Barefoot (@dannybarefoot) November 10, 2020Greg Sargent/WaPo:Trump is now sabotaging the transition. Democrats have a way to fight back.The election is over: Joe Biden won. Even Karl Rove now admits President Trump’s legal challenges won’t reverse the results. GOP state legislators are leaking word that they won’t facilitate the Hail Mary of appointing a rogue slate of electors in defiance of their state’s popular vote. The claims of fraud are imploding.Yet with Trump still refusing to concede, the administration’s sabotaging of the transition continues. So Democrats must crank up the pressure on the administration to drop its blockade, for the good of the transition itself and to prevent such tactics from being normalized. xAnd no indication the president is the least bit interested in looking up from his own fantasies & grievances to do anything about it, or that any Congressional Republican is pressuring him to do so.

It was, to use poker terminology, an “inside straight,” the sort of hand that seemingly comes together more by luck than by skill.The story isn’t that Trump’s luck appears to have run out. The story is that Biden is poised to beat him with the same exact hand. In the end, surveys of early voters and exit polls showed they may have been the difference in his loss.Between 47 percent and 50 percent of Catholic voters supported Trump — a small decline from 2016, but enough to cost him the Rust Belt states that mattered most to his path to victory. Nationally, the president carried white Catholics by a 15-point margin, according to AP/VoteCast data, marking a significant decline from his 33-point margin of victory over Hillary Clinton four years ago. Here’s the latest. Emily Murphy, the head of the General Services Administration, still hasn’t signed the official letter that would allow the incoming Biden team to formally begin the transition.last_img read more

Joe Biden wins Arizona (and this time they’re sure)

first_imgThe Arizona win puts Biden, already the president-elect, at 290 Electoral College votes, while Donald Trump has 217, with Georgia and North Carolina still to be called. Biden leads in Georgia and Trump in North Carolina. If those leads hold, as they are expected to do, the final result will be 306 to 232.This gives Trump one more piece of bad news to stew and fume over, and will likely remind him of his rage at Fox News for its election night call. And it highlights that Biden has won big. This wasn’t a squeaker, it was a big win both in the popular vote and the Electoral College.- Advertisement – – Advertisement –last_img

Alibaba exec on the state of Chinese consumers

first_img– Advertisement – During that his period, the company was able to make use of Alibaba’s e-commerce expertise and logistics scale to shift its sales to the internet.Tapping on livestreaming- Advertisement – In the aftermath of the coronavirus pandemic, China’s consumers are spending less time on the shopping process — but they’re spending more money than before, according to a CEO of an Alibaba-owned company.Chinese shoppers are particularly willing to pay a lot of money on luxury goods and cosmetics, Chen Xiaodong, CEO of InTime, said Tuesday. His remarks came during CNBC’s annual East Tech West conference, which is being held this year both remotely and on the ground in the Nansha district of Guangzhou, China.InTime is one of the largest department store operators in China and was acquired by tech juggernaut Alibaba in 2017.- Advertisement – Chen Xiaodong, VP of Alibaba and CEO of InTime speaks with CNBC’s Arjun Kharpal at the opening remarks of the CNBC East Tech West conference in Nansha, Guangzhou on November 17, 2020 in China.Zhong Zhi | Getty Images InTime used Alibaba’s livestreaming platform, Taobao Live, to increase the number of streams where viewers had the option to directly place orders on Intime’s online store. Several thousand sales associates from the physical stores were said to have been registered as livestreaming hosts to facilitate the streams.Chen explained that InTime was already tapping into the trends around online shopping such as livestreaming before the pandemic hit. The virus merely sped up “the digitalization procedure for the physical stores,” he said.With the pandemic now relatively under control in China, customers are slow to return to physical stores due to safety considerations, Chen explained. He added that sales have recovered from a year ago and about 20% of it is coming from the internet at the moment.Still, InTime has no plans to push customers in any one direction — either to the physical stores or the online store. It depends on people’s habits, according to Chen. But he pointed out that livestreaming had its benefits where a sales associate could potentially serve a thousand or 10,000 people concurrently through the stream whereas in the physical store they can only serve a handful of customers at any given time.“So, it’s very convenient,” Chen said.China’s retail sales for October continued on an upward trajectory, rising 4.3% year-on-year as more consumers opened up their wallets. Though the figure missed analysts’ expectations, it was still growing at a faster pace than September’s 3.3% increase. “Consumer intention is still there. The people want to spend more money compared with last year but the time they spend on a shopping journey (has shortened),” he told CNBC’s Arjun Kharpal at the opening remarks of the conference.Earlier this year, InTime temporarily shut 65 of its stores for a number of weeks as China went into lockdown to tackle the pandemic. – Advertisement –last_img read more

USDA to ban all ‘downer’ cattle from food supply

first_img NMPF statement supporting USDA movehttp://nmpf.org/latest-news/press-releases/may-2008/nmpf-statement-in-support-of-usda-decision-to-end-use-of-downer- “To maintain consumer confidence in the food supply, eliminate further misunderstanding of the rule and, ultimately, to make a positive impact on the humane handling of cattle, I believe it is sound policy to simplify this matter by initiating a complete ban on the slaughter of downer cattle that go down after initial inspection,” Schafer said in his announcement. Schafer said closing the loophole would affect relatively few cattle. Of nearly 34 million cattle that were slaughtered last year, fewer than 1,000 animals that were reinspected by government veterinarians were approved for slaughter, he reported. Sen. Herb Kohl, D-Wis., chairman of the Agriculture Appropriations subcommittee, was among several lawmakers who welcomed Schafer’s announcement. The move to keep disabled cattle out of the food supply began as a defense against bovine spongiform encephalopathy (BSE), or mad cow disease, and its human counterpart. The discovery of the first US BSE case in late 2003 prompted the USDA to announce a ban on downers in January 2004. But the agency made an exception for cattle that become disabled after their preslaughter inspection by a USDA veterinarian, if a second inspection shows that the problem is something that doesn’t affect food safety, such as a broken leg. “A strictly enforceable downer ban will eliminate confusion and move the ball forward on food safety and humane standards, while restoring consumer faith in a vital American sector,” he said in a statement. May 21, 2008 (CIDRAP News) – In a move to bolster consumer confidence in the safety of US beef and prevent mistreatment of cattle, Agriculture Secretary Ed Schafer yesterday announced plans to close a regulatory loophole that permits some disabled cattle to be used for food. The American Meat Institute and the National Milk Producers Federation (NMPF) issued statements yesterday applauding the move. Those two groups, along with the National Meat Association, had petitioned the USDA in April to make the ban complete, saying this would help boost US beef exports, among other benefits. May 20 USDA announcement of plan to ban downer cattle from the food supply Wayne Pacelle, president of the HSUS, praised the move and suggested that USDA inspectors immediately change their practices to match its intent. “The decision to ban all non-ambulatory cattle from slaughter will positively impact the humane handling of cattle by reducing the incentive to send marginally weakened cattle to market,” Schafer said. “Cattle producers, transporters and slaughter establishments alike will be encouraged to enhance humane handling practices, as there will no longer be any market for cattle that are too weak to rise or walk on their own.” The processing of downer cattle into food lurched into the spotlight in January, when undercover videotaping by the Humane Society of the United States (HSUS) showed workers at a California slaughterhouse using forklifts, electric prods, and water sprays to try to move disabled dairy cows. The revelations led to the recall of 143 million pounds of beef by Hallmark/Westland meat Co. of Chino, Calif., the largest beef recall in US history. “Consumer confidence is tied to perceptions about the quality and safety of animals in the food supply,” the NMPF statement said. “This clarification of the rules preventing nonamubulatory cattle from entering the food chain is a necessary development as much for what it says about consumer perception as its impact on food safety.” Asserting that the current rules contributed to the abuses at the Hallmark/Westland plant, Pacelle said in a statement yesterday, “This is long-anticipated but welcome news. For too long, sick and crippled animals have been allowed into the food supply, putting consumers at risk and subjecting injured and sick animals to needless torment.” See also: Schafer said the US Department of Agriculture (USDA) would propose a rule to ban the slaughter of all nonambulatory, or “downer,” cattle for food, aiming to implement it within a few months. Meat industry groups’ petition to the USDAhttp://www.meatami.com/ht/a/GetDocumentAction/i/11881 He added, “We hope the USDA broadens the rule to include auction houses, to require immediate euthanasia of downers and to apply the rule to pigs and other livestock, not just cattle.” Closure of the loophole had been sought by industry groups, lawmakers, and the HSUS, and Schafer’s announcement met a chorus of approval.last_img read more
