    Still, she has a postive favorability rating (51% to 41%). Imagine if a group of people were planning to storm the WH to kidnap Orange Blob and put him on trial. I suspect he has been rebuked by the...

    I see. Our dashboard does not do 7-day averages I think but we're about the same, a bit over 255 I think. Our R is supposed to be declining a bit, 1.17 now but I guess it could be statistical noise...

    So I am a bit confused. We are at 26.3 positive tests per day per 100K. We believe we have 840 contagious people per 100K. Still below where we believe we were in March. Our R is estimated to be 1.27.

    How does that work? If you get enough signatures there will be a referendum? The quote makes it seem as if some 400K signatures are enough to led state congress repeal the law.

    I'm about -4% but only because I have been cashing in on optionpremia. On the other hand, without those I would not have the equity portfolio I currently have.

    Again, I am not saying Whitmer, or Cuomo for that matter, implemented the right or, at the time, reasonable policies. I am saying that, based on what we know now, it may well be that they did. It is...

    I wouldn't know where to find the SS/MA numbers (and for other states as well). From what I read, Whitmer and Cuomo get good grades from their respective states. And even if it is 42%-plus, that'd be...
