Finance executives are now bracing for Joe Biden to potentially win the presidency as Donald Trump slides in national and swing-state polls. Various current and former Wall Street financiers, analysts, lobbyists, lawyers and political advisors with banking clients spoke to CNBC about how the industry is bracing for a possible Biden win. Some spoke on the record, others decided to discuss on the condition of anonymity as they were not authorized to speak publicly on the issue.

Comments:

well, if Michael Novogratz, an investor and philanthropist, and a "poll" say so, it must be over.. i think i'll still show up with my camera at the polls on Nov. 3rd

This is from CNBC. A Biden presidency would be a total disaster because he would only serve a short time, then resign with Kamela Harris becoming the president. Or he may never run and be replaced at the convention. I don't see how he can debate President Trump with his memory problems.

The largest cities and metropolitan areas in the country are almost universally blue, the democrats have the House, and GOP senators have grown even more squishy, so I'm not discounting an electoral disaster in November. Nothing is a foregone conclusion in 2020.

Biden can win in a cakewalk if he picks a great diverse woman of color as hi veep. Rashida Talib is his only choice for total and complete annihilation of Trump and to finish off the complete destruction of the United States.

They will be SHOCKED, absolutely SHOCKED, when Trump wins YUGELY in November. We will smile because this will confirm over two elections that the pollsters and media are propagandists and therefore useless to the Country. I can't imagine the Leftist angst. If you thought 2016 was entertaining, the 2020 collapse will be sweet. Do you think Uncle Joe will write "What Happened II" (ghost authored by Hillary)?

Wall Street does not vote. I heard this on the radio from an ABC affiliate. Don't believe a word of anything. The media and their accomplices are full throttle on destroying our country. Goes to show you how swayed Wall Street is by propaganda. I don't trust them. They are a bunch of elitist Democrats and Rino Republicans who represent companies who do business in China. They don't represent the vast right wing silent majority, aka, voters.

People may be reacting to the media blitz that is stoking the racism meme. If people believe Trump=racist and they are deathly afraid of being labeled a racist, they will vote for Biden to be a "good person". The BLM strategy of guilt-shaming and racial bullying is working with soft independents who are clueless about what is really at stake in November and vote strictly on their "feelings" to not be considered racist. Trump needs to show Biden as a weak puppet of China and Socialist forces that will restore the "managed decline" of the US economy and take away their private health insurance. He also needs to appeal to those blacks that are the victims of the Democrat party neglect especially regarding charter schools. Also, don't discount the very real possibility that Biden will self-destruct during the debates with Trump. There's still a lot of game left before November but if articles like this can discourage Trump turnout it can tip the scales in Biden's favor. This is not the time for complacency and we should expect the left to lie, cheat, and steal to win votes by any means necessary.

PS I'm scared that the cardboard cut out (Biden) could win. Folks, it was really, really close in 2016 and our side didn't do well in 2018. It looks like our Senatorial campaign committee is using that oh-so-successful "Paul Ryan Plan to Keep the House" from 2018 as well. There are deep stat puppet masters who will run the show and make Orwell's 1984 look like a happy read. That means we have to work harder and defeat the opposition. Including winning the House, keeping the Senate and the White House and winning at the state legislator level (ie, redistricting).

Any financial analyst who actually believes in these polls.... I sure as heck don't want them managing my money. Too gullible.. The only poll I'll believe that shows the Democrat candidate* winning, is one that factors in the massive democrat vote cheating that WILL be taking place. * I say Democrat candidate, rather than Biden, because I'm not convinced that Biden will be the nominee, when all is said and done.

Mitch and his gang don't quite know what to do. Their Chamber of Commerce masters aren't to pleased since they can't import all the cheap labor they wnat. Many college graduates, their brains stunted by their advanced education will want to replace the bad mean old orange man (not knowing why he is a bad old mean man, just the they "feel" like he is and besides everyone says so). The democrat vote gathering machine will be in full operation. Chances are the dead will rise and vote and every person in a vegetative state will momentarily rouse themselves themselves for just long enough to vote a straight democrat ticket and turn the ballot over to that nice antifa person to take to the nearest vote bundling location. It is likely that many of the characters from your favorite movies and cartoons will participate. I hope the MAGA team has a plan to limit the vote to living legal citizens but I see no evidence of them doing so. So don't count on any easy victory. Broken glass once again.

What’s a CNN host to do when confronted with a guest who doesn’t accept The Narrative? In the case of Don Lemon interviewing former Milwaukee County Sheriff David Clarke, the answer is: tell him to “keep it down,” refuse to listen to what he is saying, and then abruptly cut him off. It’s not as if they are interested in anything that doesn’t support The Narrative. Much less explodes it with data on cops being killed. Unintentional comedy lasting 2 awkward, hilarious minutes.

Notes handwritten by (now disgraced) FBI agent Peter Strzok show Obama, with then-Veep Joe Biden playing along, encouraging the FBI and Justice Department’s investigation of Flynn, even as they were told his actions “appear legit.”

When he was running the U.S. Senate in 2012, Harry Reid asserted, without presenting evidence, that an anonymous source had told him that Republican nominee Mitt Romney was a tax cheat. “So, the word is out that he has not paid any taxes for 10 years,” the majority leader declared from the Senate floor. “Let him prove that he has paid taxes, because he hasn’t.” It was a classless move from a classless politician. As it turned out, his comment didn’t bear any relation to reality. In reality, it turned out that Romney paid millions of dollars in taxes each year and gave a significant amount to charity.

Los Angeles—“Family Guy” voice actor Mike Henry said Friday he is stepping down from the role of Cleveland Brown on the Fox animated series. Henry wrote on Twitter that he will stop playing the show’s main African American character because “persons of color should play characters of color.” The 54-year-old voice actor, who is a white man, has voiced the character since the series’ debut in 1999.(Snip) His decision comes after voice actors Jenny Slate and Kristen Bell—who are white—pulled out of their roles to recast their biracial characters with someone of color.

Judicial Watch once again has proven to be invaluable in uncovering official perfidy. (snip) Rhodes says to Sullivan and other redacted officials: At least you’re only a liar. Could be worse – we’re liars and also allegedly leakers. So you’ve got that going for you, which is something. Sullivan replies: “We’re only lying footsoldiers [sic]. You’re lying masterminds. That’s cooler.” A redacted official replies to Sullivan: “I prefer that we go by henchmen. Has more of a Marvel comic sinisterness to it. There should be a cable show where all the guests, and the anchor, have to wear polygraphs."
