The New Joe Montgomery Birther Pit / Re: LOL TRUMP
« on: Today at 06:04:18 PM »
I did not vote for him yesterday.

who did you vote for, spracne?  president, senate, congressperson, railroad commissioner and state house please.

they'll do what trump tells them to do

not anymore.

3
Eastman was my other Dem besides Biden

interesting.  should be a tight race.

4
I voted for 2 dems, the rest pubs, no to retaining any judges, and for the legalized gambling stuff (3 things)

did you vote for bacon or eastman?

5
aren't states generally more conservative with presidential elections?

not that i'm aware of.

with respect to 2020 senate vs presidential races in competitive states, there seem to be a fair share of both senate candidates that run ahead of the presidential and the reverse.  for a while trump was running ahead of most 'pub senate candidates, but that has recently flipped.  and for a while most dem senate candidates were running ahead of biden, but i think that is reversing too (because of undecideds, the relationships aren't just mirror images).

this disease has really thrown a spotlight on how much parents hate spending time with their children.

Why did you post this in this thread?

so that others could experience some pale shadow of the feeling of serendipity that i experienced when i came across the tweet.

what a strange and tiny world.

Somehow the wall is not a thing? Was a pretty big deal in 2016, now like 10 miles was built and we paid for it. So, draw?

nope, he's built almost 400 miles of wall, with construction ongoing through national parks, tribal lands and pristine wilderness.  no possible way to call that a good thing.

there's a lot of discussion in the media and on twitter about dem voters being panicked about losing again, despite biden's huge lead.  little evidence of that here.  trump voters do seem to be maintaining some hope against all evidence, although our trump sample is small.

honestly, happy/surprised we were able to find six trump votes.

Definitely seen some ads, but I suspect most people like myself were going to vote against Cornyn regardless of his opponent if they were going to vote him down at all.

her one and only job as a candidate is basically to try and reduce the number of voters that vote biden/cornyn from a maximum of maybe 5% down to as close to 0% as she can get it.

This is exactly my motivation. Pure repudiation. also i want to contribute to the margin of victory in the hopes of avoiding a controversial outcome

are you still considered a resident of a state?

That's a poor analogy.  If you want to stick with RP, it'd be that he as theoretically near the end of year 4 with the 4th year having gone ridiculously worse than the first shitty 3 to where KSU was at risk of somehow not even having football going forward if he kept at it, and the options were keep him or hire whoever was the most basic, old, safe out-of-work coach at the time.

And of course the choice would be to hire Coach Basic and at least end the crap show and reset normalcy for a more winning selection after a few years.

iirc, kstate did decide to rehire coach basic and it worked out ok.

i agree with ipa and tdaver that voting in a non-competitive state is entirely expressive, and one need not weigh any of the considerations with which voters in competitive states are burdened or privileged.

in several previous elections i've voted for presidential candidates i did not actually wish to win, because i thought it best allowed me to express the direction i would prefer politics to shift.  i did that in 2016, and don't regret it.

in 2020, i voted for biden because the most important message i most wished to express is complete rejection of trump, trumpism, the lawless corruption, cruelty and incompetence that have characterized his presidency and the falsity of the incoherent and ignorant idea that both candidates and current iterations of both parties are in any way moral equivalents.

oh, and i forgot about this.  trump has had to plow a ton of money back into fundraising to keep the spigot on.

I never donated to Heger because I never thought she had a chance of winning, I still don’t but it will be closer than I thought.

my expectation since forever has been that she'll run a couple of points behind biden.

20
yeah, a lot of people think that.

21
 :Take the Bait:
I will say I have never seen Cornyn ads ever until this election.  But every other commercial is for Heger.

that's interesting because hegar hasn't raised all that much money herself.  she raised like 14 million last quarter, which would normally be fine, but compared to like harrison raising 50 million or whatever it was, it's pretty bad.

22
Just for you, I shall try.

thank you.

not broke, but definitely more limited than the biden campaign.  important that most of the money isn't the campaign's own because the campaign gets cheaper ad rates than the affiliated groups do.


24
I don't know?

please pay attention to the credits the next time you see them.

25
interesting that this is completely focused on health care and covid.  trump won this district by 9 in '16, cruz won it by 1 in '18.
