Every single change favors the Democrats, and there are 16 more that they’ll cover in a separate story tomorrow. Details here. And Karen Tumulty reports that trends are similar in Senate races. Bottom line: If you’re a Republican, life really sucks right now.

DEMOCRACY DOES NOT EXIST...

without free and fair elections, a vigorous free press, and engaged citizens to reclaim power from those who abuse it.

In this election year unlike any other—against a backdrop of a pandemic, an economic crisis, racial reckoning, and so much daily crazy—Mother Jones' journalism is driven by one simple question: Will America will move closer to, or further from, justice and equity in the years to come?

If you're able to, please join us in this mission with a donation today.
