IN CASE YOU THOUGHT BEN SASSE HAD GROWN A SPINE:

Trump's suburban collapse costs him in NebraskaThe president is on a trajectory to lose an electoral vote in the reddest of red states. (DAVID SIDERS, 10/18/2020, Politico)

Over the past half-century, Nebraska has only once delivered one of its electoral votes to a Democratic presidential nominee. Barring a turnaround, this year will mark the second time. [...]

In the 2nd District, which includes largely Democratic Omaha and its largely Republican suburbs, the president is running 6 or 7 percentage points behind Joe Biden, according to public and private polling.

It's a case study of his collapse in the suburbs, an example of how the president's alienation of a traditional Republican constituency is proving costly to his reelection campaign -- and how his increasingly desperate last-minute appeals to suburbanites are going unheeded.
