In The Daily News' Wednesday edition, the first page was full of storm “non” events. Second page, California fires, and Jacob Blake not likely to walk. Third page, Falwell resigns and U.S. virus.

Fifth page, Blacks to vote and Black Lives Matter protests. But our president didn’t get in until page 9 with a discouraging account how he's struggling to campaign.

This should've been front page news like your publishing after the Democratic National Convention.

President Trump isn't struggling, but shining. In my opinion, it’s Biden’s clan who is desperate and flailing against Trump and Americans.

To all Trump supporters, take note, as we traveled the back roads of Texas on Wednesday to seek refuge from Laura, we saw nothing but "Vote for Donald Trump 2020" signs the whole way.

Editor's note: Just as a matter of fact for the record, no articles about the Democratic National Convention appeared on the front page. The only related article was Aug. 12, a few days before the convention began. That article was about a Black woman becoming a vice presidential candidate for the first time in the nation's history.

That's okay, Tom Russo. This paper and others will print "TRUMP WINS! after the election.

Robert Braeking

How did the first edition report the results of the Truman/Dewey race?

Charles Douglas

Young African-Americans who are flocking over to join or vote for Trump: Lawrence Jones, T.W. Shannon, Kimberly Klacik, Daniel Cameron, Leo Terrell attorney & Long time Democrat, Candace Owens, Diamond & Silk, Alice Johnson, and many many more. The difference is Trump has a network and a operating plan of outreach to minority voters which has produced amazing results, that no other Republican has.bothered to use or deploy in the past! Trump and his TRUMPITES are contesting for every vote and the DEMS are running scared! Joe is starting to come out of the hole they have been hiding him in! The numbers are changing along with situations and circumstances! Even "Crooked" is running scared, and who could blame them? Trump Diesel IS beginning to do what he is good at, and the DEMS see it coming! Michael Moorer sent out a warning to the Democrats the other day that the poll numbers did not represent what's out there! He is right too, because I never tell the pollsters who polls me who I'm voting for! They will know on November 3rd!

Gary Miller

The news that Trump got a 6 % bump from the Biden convention but Biden got none should be included in the paper. How much more bump will Trump get from his convention is also news the paper should cover. Since both are PRO TRUMP they will never be reported by the Democrat media.

Jim Forsythe

Gary, it's too early to determine what bounce Trump may have gained. Bumps usually are short lived, as the candidates usually go back to preconvention levels. Most people have already decided which one they are going to vote for.

A large percent of people did not watch any convention coverage.

Biden Sees 5 Percent Favorability Bump After Democratic Convention. Again it most likely will not make a difference. If you watched, did it change your mind or are you still going to vote for the person that you were before the convention?

Past history.

Trump got a 3-point bump in the polls after the 2016 RNC, and challenger Hillary Clinton got a 2-point bump after the Democratic convention. The largest-ever bounce, according to UCSB’s research, was Bill Clinton gaining 16 points after the 1992 DNC.

Charles Douglas

Don't ask Pelosi, ask meeeeee! See Pelosi and Cry-Baby Schumer are just like Biden and Hunter! China owns them ...Lock-Stock- &-Barrel! Then again remember the orders Obama left to the LEFT as Trump walked him out of the White House, resist, reSIST RESIST! This is why he HUNG around the DC AREA, ..bought a home there in a gated community, because he is the LEADER of that resistance against the TRUMP ADMINISTRATION! Now the LEFT has dusted off and trotted out the biggest RACIST, who have done more to keep African-Americans down, than BIG "BULL" CONNOR did back during JIM CROW! Like I said before, ..one thing which multiplies my faith is the mass numbers of African-Americans who are raising their heads up from looking down at what the Liberals have been telling them, and are now commanding respect by thinking for themselves, and taking responsibility for their own success and failures. They stopped blaming SLAVERY, General Lee and Old General G.T. Beauregard, for their failures! That, as I have said so times is LEFTIST BS! This country is full of opportunities, for those who seek after, and those who work and pursue diligently after success!

George Laiacona

The “TaxDodging, Boob-Tube,Celebraty” doesn’t deserve any front page. He has done nothing to improve the middle and lower class families in America.

Lorna Presswood

I agree completely. And yes, Trump supporters are everywhere-I passed a huge amount of cars driving through Sugar Land the other day with flags on their cars in a make-shift parade. It's a shame that all media, even the little daily news, has to be so biased. It's so obvious. I think everyone will be even more shocked than last time when he gets elected. They seem to think all this biased media actually reflects the reality of society...it doesn't.

domenico nuckols

Don't worry, it will be on a mug shot.

Thomas Carpenter

I tell the pollsters I'm voting for Trump; nothing could be farther from the truth ... except maybe a statement by Trump.

Carlos Ponce

Thomas, vote for whomever you want. Trump will still win.

Ted Gillis

Carlos Ponce

You are a bit behind times, Ted. Are you a TED, Ted? TED- (Trump Election Denier)

Gary Miller

No bump for Biden from the DNC convention. 6% bump for Trump from the DNC convention. How big will Trumps bump from RNC convention be when polls are released?

Ted Gillis

0% Gary

TED 100%

Dan Freeman

Conventions changed little. August 1 Biden 50.2 Trump 42, August 31 Biden 50.2 Trump 43.1. 538 prediction: Biden 67% chance of winning Trump 32% chance.

Carlos Ponce

Then you will love this poll, Dan:

https://projects.fivethirtyeight.com/2016-election-forecast/

Jim Forsythe

Right now Biden is favored (by about 2:1) to win the election. That approximately 1/3 chance that Trump has is not insubstantial. If I told you there was a 1/3 chance that you’d die in a car accident on your way to work tomorrow, you’d probably have the good sense to call in sick. Silver gave Trump about a 1/4 chance in 2016 and when Trump won that somehow made the forecast “wrong.” It’s like people don’t know one thing about odds or statistical probability. The odds right now are saying that not only may Trump win in 3 of every 10 elections run under the current circumstances. He actually should win in 3 of every 10.

Biden has the upper hand in this race, but this is by no means a done deal.

Carlos Ponce

"Right now Biden is favored (by about 2:1) to win the election." Keep thinking that, Jim, keep thinking!

Charles Douglas

I see where with all the looting, all the burning, robbing, stealing, killing which the DEMOCRATS have supported by BLM, and Antifa, these last few months,...they are all now in unison and on one accord together in trying to blame it all on Trump... now that their polls are sinking like a rock in the river, and African-Americans and Latinos are flocking to Trump in record numbers! They tried to lie all these days about it was all peaceful protests, and the lawlessness was just a myth, One of their Democratic Leaders said! Well here is what they have done by their own stupidity, they have LOST THE ELECTION! It is OVER! Lastly, I will tell the world something God said about such behavior! ...." A false witness shall not be unpunished, and he that speaketh lies shall not escape." [ Proverbs 19:5 ] Go home it is finish, this was all we were waiting on ....for the LEFT TO fall in the same HOLE THEY DUG FOR TRUMP, and to get BASHED IN THR FACE with the same rock, lying accusations and persecutions hurled at our President! God said as much: " He who diggeth a pit SHALL fall therein, and he who rolleth a STONE ..it shall RETURN ONTO HIM AGAIN!" [ Proverbs 26:27 ] [beam] The LEFT can stop "WISHING" now and get set to endure, FOUR MORE ..beautiful years of the Best President to serve this nation since Ole ABE! Please go home! If you don't ... Ohhhhhh what A time I will have late November 3rd when all the crying and Boohooing and excuse making starts! [beam]

Robert Braeking

Regardless all the comments about the presidential election, I have a simple question. Has anyone seen a Biden yard sign, billboard, or flag? I have seen plenty of support for Trump.

Carlos Ponce

I saw a Biden sign in a yard on Avenue T in Santa Fe, south of the Haak Vineyards. I've seen plenty of Trump signs, banners. And I haven't been out-of-county since the pandemic but those who have tell me of thousands of Trump signs throughout the state they've seen.

Jim Forsythe

A yard sign, billboard, or flag may make a difference in a local race because the candidate may not be well known.

But in a national race does it matter. Have you changed your mind because of a sign? Will you change from supporting Trump or Bidden because of a sign?

In the past, we did not have computers to get info about candidate's. Before, TVs, we depended on the printed news for info.

Will the yard sign fade into history?

Carlos Ponce

"Have you changed your mind because of a sign?" A yard sign tells me the political leanings of the homeowner. A Democrat sign tells me not to bring up politics with that person. Democrats can get hostile! A Republican sign tells me a good person lives there.

Wayne D Holt

Will the yard sign fade into history?

I'm doing my part in the District 3 race. I pledged no yard signs to clutter the scenery and blow around our streets. We'll see shortly if that is a viable path to take.

Ted Gillis

When I see a Trump sign in a yard, it usually means that they have a dog that bites!

Carlos Ponce

When I see a Biden sign in a yard, it means the owner bites!

Jim Forsythe

Best yard sign i have ever seen, was in a yard in Clute..

Lefty is right.

Carlos Ponce

So that means a left handed candidate was a right winger.

Jim Forsythe

Not what it means.

Carlos Ponce

Lefty - definition: a left-handed person

Jim Forsythe

Right is opposite of wrong.

Carlos Ponce

Right also refers to the Conservatives in this country.

Bailey Jones

I have a variety of anti-Trump signs I like to rotate - so far only one has been defaced. Although two of my neighbors have had theirs stolen.

Robert Braeking

Mr. Jones, Perhaps your neighbors took down their anti-Trump signs to save their embarrassment.

Bailey Jones

Ah yes - and then lied about it. That does sound like my neighbors. But it begs the question of why they put up new signs afterward.

Jim Forsythe

Carlos, your answer is no.

But you made up your mind about someone that lives in a house because of a sign?

Since you have only seen one sign, that family is the only one you do not talk to? You do know the person in the house incase you see them outside their home?

Political shunning at it's finest!

Which Democrats in Galveston county are hostile?

What is your definition of hostile?

Carlos Ponce

My definition of hostile? Senator Rand Paul and wife being called vulgar names and threatened by people trying to push police to the ground as they tried to get to the Senator.

Jim Forsythe

And that happened in Galveston county?

Jim Forsythe

Vulgar names like Trump calls people, One man yells repeatedly, "say her name," a reference to Breonna Taylor, a Black woman killed by police in March in Kentucky, the state that Paul represents.

At no time was Senator Rand Paul or his wife in danger. They were surrounded by Secret Service people and D.C. police.

I been in worse crowds in Galveston.

Carlos Ponce

No Jim but the paper's rules will not let me print the names that were used.

Jim Forsythe

Name calling is bad? Does calling once the highest-ranking African-American in the West Wing, a “dog.” and other names Trump used such as “slime ball”, "dumb as a rock" and a "lightweight" , “sloppy” count as bad? Grab them by the ----- count as bad talk. I have been in places in Galveston that people used much worse language than what was used with Senator Rand Paul or his wife.

Besides Senator Rand Paul or his wife having their feeling hurt, what physically happened to them?

Carlos Ponce

Calling a public official names comes with the territory. Their wives and children are off limits.

Jim Forsythe

As the President does not act presidential, no one can expect anything but this type of behavior.

It is still about Galveston County and which people you think are hostile Democrats' here, and not in D.C.

Carlos Ponce

The president acts presidential.

Robert Braeking

Jim, The police who were protecting Rand Paul and his wife took the beating for them. That is the mission of the police. Protect and serve. They will take a whupping to save your hide.

When the dog happens to be dark complected you jump on the race card. Was he calling him a 'bull dog' or a 'dirty dog' or as in the case of General Mattis, a 'mad dog'? It makes a difference. As fare as the slime balls, dumb as a bag of hammers, lightweight, sloppy, sleepy, low-energy, fake news, etc. etc. He is right in every case....and that grates on you.

Jim Forsythe

Robert, which police officer took a beating. The one using a bicycle to shield himself, which caused him to fall into the Pau's? The officer also had a helmet on.

How do you convert "Does calling once the highest-ranking African-American in the West Wing, a “dog." into using a race card.

Is Manigault Newman African-American, and was she once the highest-ranking African-American in the West Wing?

Did Trump call her a dog? DO you Robert, approve of Trump calling her a Dog?

Robert Braeking

Jim,

Assault - Law. an unlawful physical attack upon another; an attempt or offer to do violence to another, with or without battery, as by holding a stone or club in a threatening manner.

At least one of the police suffered not only assault but battery as well. You want to quibble? Educate yourself.

Robert Braeking

Rand Paul sponsored the bill in the Senate:

S.3955 - Justice for Breonna Taylor Act

Responding to a yelling man in a hostile crowd is ill-advised.

Ted Gillis

I only remember the incident where a Rand Paul detail person pushed a protestor to the ground and then stood on that persons head, while the senator was escorted away. It was probably back in 2015.

We never had that problem when his father Ron Paul was our congressman, because he hardly ever visited the district.

Carlos Ponce

Date June 2010

53 year old Tim Profitt entered an Alford Plea in the assault charge on 23-year-old Lauren Valle a member of MoveOn.org. In the misdemeanor charge he was given one-year unsupervised probation and paid $600 for medical fees. [yawn] Justice served. Let's see if anything is done to the people who attacked the police escorting Sen Paul and his wife.

Jim Forsythe

The question was, "Have you changed your mind because of a sign?"

This is about Galveston County, and have you changed your mind because of a sign.

Carlos Ponce

I can change my mind about the person who owns that sign.
