Title: 2022 midterm elections
Post by: sys on August 25, 2022, 02:50:19 PM
i didn't see a thread already started for discussion of the upcoming midterms.



some republicans appear to be beginning to react to the roe backlash visible in the kansas amendment vote and various post-roe special elections where dems have done better than expected.

along with masters, another republican senate candidate also released an ad today to deny allegations that she holds extreme pro-life positions.

Will be very interesting to see how this plays out. When Roe was in place, candidates could claim to support extreme restrictions on abortion and pay little political cost for that position. Looks like the results from the Kansas ballot measure could be some candidates to recalibrate.

Interesting discussion of this starts around the 35:00 min in this podcast:

Someone tell me who is going to win the Kansas 2022 Gov race.   I hardly ever vote but will probably vote for Kelly since crap seems to be going well with her at the helm.

Not going to try to predict it. Would think Kelly has a shot to hold on to the office. Schmidt doesn’t come across as being as extreme as Kobach. Will be very interesting to watch.

Is Kobach running for anything that I need to vote against or have we more or less scourged him from our lands?

I may do the unthinkable and lobby people I know to vote against him.  He’s one of the only people I would ever even consider such a thing for.

elevating your weirdo acolytes with profligate primary spending then letting them sink in the general elections to help prove your ideology is unelectable is an interesting approach.

He's also scrubbed all mentions of 2020 election denial and some pro trump propaganda. He's getting his ass kicked in polling.

Elections where someone wins with a minority of voters are un-American:

Ranked choice actually helped Palin.  The real issue was the GOP splitting the vote.

The average voter is probably too dumb to understand ranked choice voting.

I think the circles of trumper who would go to a rally and college football fans aren't as tight as we might think. I think the college football fan is more the trolling, not as politically active, trumper.

I keep seeing polls and thinking that I just can't really draw any conclusions at all from them.

Or that people like me are again willing to work with people like the Kansas Livestock Association and vice versa.

I think KLA has to be a bit terrified of his anti-immigrant rhetoric. Without humans who are economically desperate enough to work in the packing plants, the Kansas beef industry is in a very bad place.
