    Speaker Pelosi. Alabama Senator Doug Jones. Kentucky governor Beshear.

    The post-Trump elections have obviously helped the Democrats and hurt the Republicans. Why do you think 2020 will be different?

    The presidents party almost always loses house seats in the off year elections. IIRC the only recent exception to this was in 2002 when the GOP gained (due to 9-11 the previous year). Though the Democrats gained in 1998 due to the impeachment efforts against Clinton.

    In all likelihood Doug Jones is on his way out in next years election.

    Beshear won against literally the most unpopular governor in the United States. Unpopular for many reasons both of policy and personality. Including blaming the states teachers for the death of a child that occurred while they were on strike.

    Do some research before you post.

    I can agree with you that Buttigege would make an acceptable VEEP candidate. Hey Biden / Buttigege --- aka The Odd Couple!

    That slate losses a bit of the Black vote. The Evengenitals and Soitherners would not vote for a Democrat even if George Wallace came back to life and ran as a Democrat.

    That Dem Senator ( Jones) in Alabama is an outliner and he will be gone next year. Seriously the only reason he won was he ran against a for all practical purposes a pedophile.

    I do not understand why Pete would be popular with young Republicans.

    Let's see how Buttigieg does in Iowa and New Hampshire. If he wins there he could be on a roll until South Carolina. That could spell trouble. S.C. will probably be a big win for Biden setting up an interesting possibility of a Biden, Buttigieg ticket.

    :) I knew the old, "well, other people are bad so it's OK if Trump is bad " excuse...


    No, and you didn't vote for a leader either...

    Because liberal polls are skewed to say anything, Polls have been wrong for at least the last 10 yrs, many are just outright wrong and most of them are skewed politically.

    Wh
    I think he will do pretty well in the democratic primary especially in caucus states where passion determines who bothers to hang out at the caucus and in open primaries where independents can take part. His big problem will be that he will do a little worse with these respective voters if they are older voters and it is older voters who have the habit of showing up and voting. Its the same problem that killed Sanders off. Hillary won the closed primary states because young voters he polled well with did not show up, and independents could not save him.

    Black voters do not know him well and do not yet feel comfortable with him.

    Still this is an impressive polling result on two grounds, as is his lead in Iowa. He won't win the top spot, but it shows that
    1.Trump is relatively weak even in the South because he won't carry the big cities and is fragile in suburbs.
    2. Pete has a real future in democratic politics.

    3. I think it shows if you are a gay man running for office, being married and presumably monogamous and faithful, is better for your political aspirations now, than being single a la Barney Frank would be.

    People do not stereotype Pete as someone heading for the restroom stalls and playing footsie or going on Grind. Gay marriage is more accepted and a moral or Christian choice, than maintaining single life and dating or
    having sex outside of marriage. Its quickly becoming the 'responsible way' to be a gay man as opposed to an affront against the institution.

    Folks finally get it that homosexuality, is no more about just the sex acts, than heterosexuality is. Its about having sex yes, and falling in love, and romance, and making a future/ family together.

    Yes Democrats have figured out that there is no need to convince Americans of anything, just import your voters and win...... never mind that you have created massive wealth inequality based on ethnicity. More troubling for America's future is that the system is completely unsustainable when your fastest growing demographics contribute at around half the rate of whites.... that is a recipe for creating another Latin American banana Republic.

    I predict a MASSIVE increase in Asian immigration which will outstrip Hispanic immigration. This will be done to ensure that there are enough to high level contributors to take care of the low level contributors. This is the group that conservatives must appeal to if they hope to have power in the future.

    And in other Breaking News, Hillary has a commanding lead in the 2016 election for President per the "polls"!

    Polls today of Dem vs Trump mean absolutely nothing!

    I just want to see the video when somebody finally works up the courage to tell Trump he's getting whooped by a little gay guy. :D

    It is possible that those who answer unidentified calls and have nothing better to do than take phone surveys share the opinions of those who don't. I just want to know whos opinion is being represented.

    Trump wasn't all that popular in Georgia in 2016, just a bit less unpopular that Hillary Clinton. Trump only managed a five point win. There's no doubt in my mind that another Democratic candidate other than Hillary in 2016 would have won Georgia. The Democrats picked about the only Democrat, alive or dead that could possibly lose to Trump.

    Today, Trump is below water in his approval rating in Georgia, 46% approve, 49% disapprove. Trump won Georgia in 2016 along with the general election by winning the independent vote. Independents in Georgia voted for Trump over Hillary 52-41 with 7% voting third party against both Trump and Clinton.

    If the Democrats nominate the right candidate, one attractive to the independent voter and not just the liberal Democratic base. They can not only win Georgia, but the national election in a landslide. Nominate another candidate as disliked or even more disliked than Trump, ALA Hillary Clinton in 2016, another 2016 in 2020 is certainly possible.

    It is my belief 2020 boils down to who the Democrats nominate. Someone who is attractive the independent or swing voter, the less to non-partisan voter or someone who isn't.

    Seems pathetic that someone would actually filter relationships via political position.

    Anything's possible, but the poll in question has a recent history of being very accurate. I don't see any compelling reason to assume their latest polling isn't also accurate. If it is accurate, then Buttigieg is beating Trump in Georgia at this point.

    Seems to be a trend with all Christians.

    “Do as I say” should be the motto of modern day christianity.

    I wonder if they ever find it strange that god just magically seems to hate all the same people they do?

    Your posts seem to share a common theme, I cannot quite put my finger on it...

    That this... filth... is allowed while having entire responses deleted for having more than a few paragraphs quoted of a story tell an interesting story.
    Can’t call someone that is lying a liar or quote the president directly but apparently swimming in people’s blood is acceptable.

    Interesting

    The SDS / Weather Underground were ****s.
