Except for Utah, the state-level hot spots (per capita positive tests) currently look like a heatmap of "Americans guess which state hosts Sturgisfest". Texas is slowly starting to creep up, but it's mostly driven by El Paso, I would guess, they're transporting patients to elsewhere in the state.
Trump is probably going into superfuckyou mode after the election, regardless of how or when the electoral college is tallied. Any coronavirus testing legislation will be vetoed, so I'd guess our only hope is a GOP Senate override. Hahahhaha. If Trump hasn't conceded to a massively-expanded testing and tracing program by now, he's never gonna. And Trump actually is pretty much the Senate, at least until he loses the election and probably takes the Senate with him. Still, that's not until the end of the year.
His anti-testing tendencies, along with promoting/demonstrating a disregard for masks, reckless super-spreading events, and the politicization of his own covid contraction, are unacceptable. To pretend that scientifically sound policies and economic stability are diametrically opposed is the one of the most damaging "false choice" logical fallacies in... well, at least maybe a year or two.
Counterpoint: If Trump is resoundingly defeated, he could just get out of the way? But I sincerely doubt it. I dunno, it'd be interesting if the election was squarely called for Biden by 1 or 2 AM EST. I expect it to take days. :(
Almost typed EDT, looking forward to gettin' the hour back, yeeeee.
