Election 2020 The Non Presidential Edition


Recommended Posts

Quick question, if GA does go to two run off elections, will these be the most expensive senate races ever?

 

I have a prop bet idea for Vegas, will the winning side in each of the seats pay over or under $1,000 per vote cast for them?

With Trump having lost; will Georgia voters want to keep Joe from having the Senate?  Will they decide to give Joe the 2 Dems he needs? Expect a fortune to spent in Georgia.

 

Hopefully Trump spends the next month trying to have their ballots thrown out.  

 

But I really think that getting a 50-50 Senate might be as important as getting the WH.

You have to attempt to get bit. Probably won’t be successful but if you can win one to narrow the margin; helps in 22. Also; Did they announce the Alaska senate winner?

Have Congressional democrats delivered the defund the police message?  If so, Spanberger has a point.  Democrats get into big trouble any time they become associated with unpopular issues or positions.  They aren't Teflon like Republicans.

Spanberger is on the frontlines of the types of battles the Democrats need to win to hold power.  Leadership needs to listen to her.

I think it was put out there and echoed all over social media mainly by people who wanted Republicans to win because it was such a radical catch phrase and they wanted to paint Democrats as extremists. Unfortunately I do believe at least one or two members of The Squad picked it up and ran with it.

Yeah, there’s been a lot of debate about whether to be more centrist or more left leaning in response to the struggles they had on Tuesday. Centrists say that in swing districts or places like Miami left-leaning talk and policies hurt them.

 

Candidates on the left say that if you advocate for progressive policies earnestly you will convince people to support them and win people over.  

 

And the establishment types seem be trying to calm people down and say they did all right and that the candidates need to stop airing their internal grievances to the public.

 

But I also think they may all be overreacting to a weird election where they were severely hurt by an inability to get out the vote and meet and greet people.  I remember all the town halls and small gatherings the candidates did in 2018.

Never going to be a pit lover...but well done Denver. Thought the breed ban was always bad.

 

 

"lover" is the point.  Any dog can be taught aggression...and any dog can be taught to love. 

And behavior can be changed, with love and patience.

How the **** does Rick Santorum have a job that pays him in money?

No ****! PA voted him out, so he runs for President. He embodies why I left the GOP running and screaming.  He was one of the most wasteful spenders in congress, but every time a mic was put in front of him, he condemned gays, abortion, and the separation of church and state...so he gets labeled as a conservative.

John Huntsman cuts taxes and spending and turns a failing economy into the top job growth rate, but supports civil unions for gays, so he's a moderate. :doh:

It's the struggle between pushing the more left wing and firing up Bernie Bros vs. how those same people motivate the GOP voters because they are easily fooled by "Socialism, 2A, Riots".

 

There needs to be a strategy where the Dems do expand their tent but not at the cost of a future star like Mark Kelly because he's a white dude. He's as "Believe in Science AND serve your country" as they come.

remember years ago ? I said hubby & I wanted to hear more from Huntsman?  We weren't un-movable, but he got left behind.  (He would've ended up Independent, neither party tries to try...)
