the believe he is winning anyways so you might as well be on his side
This has been their SOP for many years

There is almost no risk and plenty of benefit in endorsing the incumbent due to hakoras hatov and a lot of risk in endorsing an underdog challenger

"Last year, Republican Trump got the Vaad’s endorsement"

"makes recommendations for the Hasidic community"

It's called Gell-Manning amnesia.

I personally have not voted yet, and I plan to wait until the final Monmouth poll is released later this week.

If it shows that Murphy has a safe lead (5-6 points or more), I think I'll vote for Murphy, because voting against him can backfire. If Ciatterelli is neck-in-neck, I'll probably vote Ciatterelli. If Murphy has a 3-4 point advantage, I'll have to do serious thinking before I vote.
I was personally thinking similarly, and wasn't sure what do do.
But them I decided, that If Murphy wants my vote, he needs to come out and clearly say that there will be no more mandates. If he won't do so, or if in fact his senior staff are saying he will do more mandates, I can't support him. Regardless, if he might be a nice person ect..

I personally think that the Project Varitas video is a letdown after they promised a bombshell. IINM, the person recorded is not from within the inner circle, and she doesn't necessarily have the authority to say what the administration will do. (The second person is definitely not in a position to know.)

I do think it's true that Murphy will impose mandates after the election, and it's evident that top Democrats *think* so too, though I don't think this specific video qualifies as a *bombshell*.

I may be wrong. As usual.
