Your Daily Roundup for October 14th
Let us know your thoughts in the comments.
Good morning. As the COVID-19 pandemic takes a toll on life in America, our team at Future Majority is tracking the latest updates:
COVID-19 is still sweeping the nation:
COVID-19 cases are on the rise in well over half of states, with a staggering 16 states reporting new daily cases in the last week than any other week since the start of the pandemic. 50,000 Americans on average are newly infected each day, a sign that the virus is not slowing down as we head toward the winter months.
Eli Lilly became the latest U.S. pharmaceutical to halt a clinical trial -- this one for an antibody treatment after unidentified safety reasons. After scientists confirmed that a man in Nevada was infected with COVID-19 two separate times, a woman in The Netherlands became the first person globally to die from a reinfection case.
Senators grilled Judge Amy Coney Barrett yesterday:
In the second day of confirmation hearings before the Senate Judiciary Committee, Senators grilled Judge Amy Coney Barrett, President Trump’s nominee to succeed the late Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, on a variety of legal and social issues.
Judge Barrett largely evaded questions on the Affordable Care Act, gay marriage and Roe v. Wade. She also declined to comment on whether a president should commit to peacefully transferring power should they lose reelection. Today we are following the third day of hearings.
Reuters/Ipsos has released battleground state polling:
With only 20 days until Election Day on November 3rd, we are tracking new battleground state polling from Reuters/Ipsos. In the two states they surveyed, former Vice President Joe Biden holds a lead over President Trump, though the margins are widely separated.
- Biden: 51%
- Trump: 43%
