  1. I picked them based off Presidential history
  2. Then that's you taking her quote out of context.
  3. Can't get more establishment than this cabinet.
  4. She doesn't say "all" or "most" people are Trump supporters. She said "half." Even though I disagree with that, I don't see why you are trying to spin the quote like you're Fox News. However, she's at fault for saying "half." You also seem to be spinning the quote as directed at people that disagree with her rather than has pin-pointed at "racist, sexist, homophobic, xenophobic, Islamophobic." She's attacking the Trump supporters that qualify for that. Her error is assuming that it is half of Trump supporters. As much as I don't like Trump supporters, I doubt 50% of them are that. N
  5. @Conservative Elector 2 Here's the quote. After reading this, let me know if you are proudly "deplorable": "You know, to just be grossly generalistic, you could put half of Trump's supporters into what I call the basket of deplorables. (Laughter/applause) Right? (Laughter/applause) They're racist, sexist, homophobic, xenophobic, Islamophobic – you name it. And unfortunately, there are people like that. And he has lifted them up. He has given voice to their websites that used to only have 11,000 people – now have 11 million. He tweets and retweets their offensive hateful mean-spirited rhet
  6. It wasn't that general... she was referring to white supremacists, bigots, xenophobes. I hope you aren't one of those.
  7. Easily Trump. He's much more defensive than Trump, runs away from tough questions, lashes out at people the contradict what he says (even people in his own admin), thinks if he is defeated that a system must be rigged against him, etc. He's the most insecure major political figure in US history. Easily wimpier than Biden.
  8. It does. It bothered me when Clinton said "deplorables," for instance.
  9. Why was the quote you quoted quoted as coming from me? @Conservative Elector 2 said that.
  10. Anti-intellectualism in national political life and in the media--this also parallels with a rise of populism. Internet and social media is playing a role in this. Income gap inequality, which also can be said to connect to the first point. Serious flaws in the public and private education systems, somewhat connected to my first point. Political parties seeking ideological purity, possibly also connects to the first point. Stubborn adherence to outdated traditional beliefs that often interfere with harmonizing a large multi-cultural nation that is a member of an int
  11. Okay, so you do have a double standard then. As someone that seems to be more interested in the US judicial system than most Americans, I wouldn't expect that from you.

  13. This might be one of the more hypocritical things you've ever said considering you support Trump more than Biden. Maybe Biden says something like this once every few weeks or few days. However, you can't deny that Trump does this routinely--possibly as much as several times an hour on some days!
  14. Yeah, that's why I said things could be pinpointed earlier, but I think he's the crucial figure. I used the St. Paul analogy. St. Paul is a symptom of Jesus, but without Paul, I doubt Jesus's message would have been spread. Christianity might have just been a sect within Judaism in a local area or something. One difference between this analogy is that Gingrich is really just a symptom of many symptoms that come together with no real central "Jesus" or cause. How much do you think anti-intellectualism plays a roll in this degeneration?
  15. Rasmussen approval poll. Take it with a block of salt. Trump's average polling approval from collective polls is 43.5% Obama's was about 5% higher.
  16. Yeah, those are all good reasons. This would correspond with that Swedish research article possibly that was posted the other day. I can pin point a lot of early assisting causes and events, but I'd say policies that saw the gradual switching over of anti-Civil Rights Southern Democrats to the Republicans, and the pro-Civil Rights Northern Republicans (Rockefeller Republicans) to the Democrats is the leading factor, since it made the parties partisan as they became more or less ideologically pure -- GOP became the conservative party and Democrats became the liberal party. 1964 only saw a few p
  17. No. Biden has a higher polling lead in AZ than in IA. The difference is that it's getting closer and Biden is losing ground in AZ but gaining ground in IA. My map works off trendings/momentum as well as with polling.
  18. Post-debate polls show Biden as having generally been seen the winner. No one really gaining favorability, but Trump losing a point in favorability. Despite this, the post-debate polls showed Trump gain a miniscule 0.5 pts or something like that. Basically, the 3rd debate didn't move anything.
  19. I take early voting in account on this map. Biden gets a boost in every battleground state because of how he's polling leads in polls regarding early voting.
  20. Maybe I thought you had gone more in depth on that, but that seems like what I'm referring to. What else would you added to this list for the "degeneration of the republic?"

  22. I absolutely agree. At one point you mentioned a few other things that you through were signs of this. Could you remind me of what those were?
  23. I don’t know why he can’t do that and give one rally.
