  1. Agreed. I happen to disagree with @PoliticalPundit's analysis, but he's been much more civil than @Patine has been lately. You've got to calm down, man. The personal attacks left and right have got to stop. Look at how @vcczar responded - pointed out a perceived flaw in reasoning and politely explained why he finds that to be an important part of the argument. It's very civil, even though you can tell that @vcczar and @PoliticalPundit are disagreeing. V clearly states he disagrees with the assessment, in fact. Likewise, just the other day I was a clown and thought something was unconstitu

  2. North Korea was an exchange of bluster that led to an unprecedented summit of leaders encouraged by Dennis Rodman, the only human being on earth who had previously personally met and had significant conversation and positive interaction with both Donald Trump and Kim Jong-un previously, Syria was only ever a despicable example of the crime against humanity major power leadership should face trial over that is Cold War-style proxy war, and never anything else, Iran was two false flags that never escalated because everything saw right through them and no one was hoodwinked or taken from the star

  4. Lindsay Graham is such a strange politician. He seemed to be one of the "sane" Republicans in the 2016 election. As soon as Trump won, he completely broke with every anti-Trump opinion he had and broke with his longtime friend John McCain. He has no backbone. He only lightly defended McCain from Trump's remarks, including when McCain was dying and when he was dead. I think Graham's just going down with the Trump ship. If he wins, he'll probably pretend that he never supported Trump. He's definitely one of the most consequential Senators of the early 21st century, but I doubt history will

  5. if Biden is ahead on election night it'll be called November 3rd if Trump is ahead this is going to take MONTHS imo. However Biden seems a decent human being so he might pull a Gore if we get that far into the weeds.

  6. That is possible. I just expect Biden to mostly hold his currently lead and for the polls to be more accurate this time than last time. They only need to be slightly more accurate. I think we will have enough evidence on election night to determine if things are going better for Biden than they were for Clinton.

  7. I’m not discounting that the all the votes won’t come in. I’m making my bet that enough will come in to make a likely projection, considering how narrow margins were in decisive states in 2016. If Biden is 10% ahead of Clinton in my key counties with 60% of the ballots in, it might be enough to say Biden will likely win, since he might only need a 2 or 3% lead over Clinton in those counties. Obviously, if ballots just aren’t coming in im not going to make a projection. However, I plan to be more trigger happy than the news outlets, and I’ll likely be confident in how I call it, whether it’s fo

  8. Of course ! I wanted to say that in modern politic this system is completely crazy. It's like if the US were still asking electors to pay a certain amount of cash to vote.

  11. My girlfriend also works at the Med Center! Small world! The email that went out has been mass shared on social media. The email from Dr. Johnson right and if not I'm sure the details are very similar. It is pretty scary. Numbers are rising and the prediction is these next weeks will be a lot worse and most hospitals in the Omaha Metro area are already at full capacity or pretty damn close. Ricketts isn't doing anything but there are state and city level politicians trying to do stuff without much success. When I go out for the necessities I notice it's about 50/50 most of the time

  12. @SilentLiberty by the way, my mother works at the Med Center, and she received an email from her hospital that the ICU was pretty much at capacity. Thought you would be interested since you live in the area. But elsewhere this isnt over yet. Hospitals are filling again.

  13. Bellwether counties like Vigo or Valencia can be useful to understand who will be the winner in the election night. Not alone, but a combination of them together.

  14. This poster seems to not read most posts - or is having trouble in reading comprehension - that he responds to. There always seems to be a disconnect between the post and his response that indicates this. It's entirely likely he doesn't really care about the point he's responding to, or he mentally edits parts he doesn't want to tackle, or that interfere with his personal narrative.

  15. I recall many people disbelieving the polls when they said Trump would be the Republican nominee. People couldn't believe the GOP was going to nominate someone so obviously unqualified and unprepared for the job despite what the polls kept showing. As for the general election, polls aren't perfect. They don't often miss by that much twice in a row.

  16. Well this was uncalled for. First of all since you have claimed to ignore me you've quoted me in several posts. Weird how that works. Also aside from the week of the conventions were emotions were high amongst everyone, I would argue I've toned it down. Infact I think me and most of the board who've disagreed with me a quite frankly cant stand me were still able to find common ground. So really your call out was childish and uncalled for. Do better.

  17. do you read your own posts man? Just because you write 100 adjectives in your paragraphs doesn't make you coherent. Calling me a "whack job" really shows your character. Take care.

  18. I concur with what @Reagan04 is saying, but if you want a good reason, here's one: I watched a lecture by a leading pollster (Peter Hart) who has been doing presidential polling since 1964. He's part of a team aiming to not make the same mistakes as in 2016. He found that the most important poll that he and other pollster overlooked were undecided voters in WI, MI, OH, and PA that disliked both Clinton and Trump. This demographic swung towards Trump in the last two weeks to a week. He found that these people voted for Trump over Clinton, despite disliking both of them, because they knew

  19. I watch every primary night and as many debates as I can. I find national politics fascinating, but you can’t get a nuanced view of American national politics without understanding the local politics of each individual state, that’s just a core truth about a federalist system such as ours. Therefore, I spend ungodly amounts of time observing and learning about the other 49 because it helps me better understand the one out of the many.

  20. Alabama: Tuberville gets my vote by a hair. I think he's a punk but his conservatism is appreciated in the Senate over Jones' rather liberal approach, especially for Alabama. Alaska: Sullivan is a stuffed suit Republican which I will easily take over Al Gross. Arizona: This is another close race for me. But it's got to be McSally, I don't want to throw that seat away as uninspiring as she is. Arkansas: RICKY DALE HARRINGTON JR. FOR SENATOR. This is the only race with a prominent Libertarian and I would cut off my right hand to see him beat Tom Cotton. Colorado: Hickenlooper

  21. big questions: - are the mail in voters people who would have voted anyway? this could be a defining narrative depending on the outcome. - % of former white women voters/suburban voters that flip to biden (this could decide the election) - trump's increase in hispanic and African American votes/non biden votes in swing states - any surprise vote flips (Arizona for trump, Texas for biden)

  23. Well, it's true. If Governors DeSantis or Kemp had went to such a boat trip, the media would have exploded. That's a trend I cannot stand.

  24. Re topic: Completely insane! Re Whitmer: Despite being somewhat sympathetic towards Governor Whitmer at the start of her term, she lost most of her credibility for me. She seems to carry out her duties very weakly and is certainly totally overwhelmed with her work as governor. Even the Michigan Supreme Court ruled against Whitmer's motions tackling the pandemic and her husband's silly boating activities didn't comply with the measures either... I cannot understand how someone could back her re-election.

  26. Why would somebody who doesn't even want a second term 1) Run for a second term 2) "Joke" about eliminating term limits at every single opportunity If Donald Trump were younger/healthier, I'd be a lot more worried about his intent to stay in the Presidency forever.

  27. Hard, unbending, pervasive partisanship everywhere, as I scolded him about just above on, is not only killing American civility, progress, and society - it's killing the very sense of American humanity. @Conservative Elector 2's post very clearly and glaringly displays this. The whole U.S. mourned for Kennedy in 1963 - such a thing would not happen today...

  28. Ah, so filthy and shameless hard and stereotyped, even close to absolutist, partisan trash infecting absolutely everything. I was afraid it such, and am quite disappointed. But you're not alone - this toxic and cancerous thoughtless partisan divide and bloc thinking and taken ahold of so many people, and utterly destroys their integrity and individuality when speaking on such matters. It's one of the greatest threats and problems - a slow, festering, mortal wound - in American - and growingly other nation's - socio-political frameworks that really needs to be addressed and dealt with construct
