1  Other Elections - Analysis and Discussion / International Elections / Re: Who Governs Sweden? Swedish Early Election - 22 March 2015 on: December 09, 2014, 05:20:54 pm
Just an interesting realization that if in the case the Moderate Party did form government again would mean that Denmark, Norway and Sweden would all have a female as their Prime Minister.

Yes it's time that Sweden end their hostility toward women and join the other Scandinavian countries in the 21th century.



Clearly, this would resolve all problems of unemployment or immigration in Sweden...

8  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / Presidential Election Trends / Re: Why is Iowa not a red state? on: November 26, 2014, 08:27:28 am
It is interesting that Romney got above 60 percent in most northern Missouri counties sometimes up to 70 percent in certain counties then right across the border in southern Iowa he fails to hit 53 percent in most of them. It is weird how just across the state line it goes from very Republican to barley Republican. Anyone not on an ego trip have any explainations?

The state line between IA and MO is pretty clear from a religious standpoint:


Well if we just went by demographics and voting patterns alone, Iowa would be a red state and Mississippi would be in play.

There must be some other factor into this one, perhaps Iowa isn't a big Evangelical state like Kansas or Nebraska. It also has more medium sized cities than Kansas or Nebraska.

Iowa has plenty of Evangelicals but it also has plenty of Illinois-style Catholics and Minnesota-style Lutherans.

True. The ELCA population in NE IA is a lot like MN, and is more Dem Leaning. NE IA and W WI are both more like MN. W IA is more like NE and KS.






thank you for those wonderful maps Smiley


i search a map like this BUT with addition of all protestant churchs, for seeing where are the strong places of catholics (because the division of protestants make catholics falsely too strong in the first map here)

9  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / Presidential Election Trends / Re: 2014's fake victory of republicans on: November 26, 2014, 08:22:24 am
(i use "republican" because "GOP" annoying me. Dem are older than rep !)


some elements make me think than this numeral victory of the republicans will be a cause of deception for 2016

-number of votes : very behind the 2010 score. Conclusion : there is no wave for republicans but most simply, dem stay home. More : rep lost more vote than democrats (-5,4 M for rep, -4,9 for dem)

-local referendum : even in republicans states, people vote in a majority for traditionnal dem patterns, like minimal wage.



conclusion : except a world war or pandemic, the democrate candidate in 2016 WILL win the white house

1.) True Demographics favor Dems in Presidential Elections. Udall would still be a US Senator by not by that of a margin victory wise despite running a horrible campaign.

2.) Dems stayed home-The problem is you don't win many elections win you lose Indies by 8 and the GOP managed to keep the Dem Victory with so-called "Moderates" to 9 points. I think as long as the Republicans can keep the Dems victory  margin with "Moderates" to 10-11 points they will have a good shot at winning. If the Republicans lose "Moderates" by 15 points like Mitt Romney the R's lose.

3.) True local referendums favored Dems but the GOP ran better candidates but The GOP candidates were younger and more optimistic than the Dem candidates in my opinion.


your 2) point is interresting. But hillary is more moderate than obama, no ? So mayby she could bring back moderate ?

Kindly switch your avatar to red

I think I've seen you do this multiple times.  People will have whatever avatar they like.  You seem to be obsessed with what color everyone's avatar is.  Get over yourself, we don't all support a political party and asking a foreigner to have the avatar of a U.S. political party is stupid.


in fact, i'm strongly right-wing, but not in american way. Gaullist, if you see, strongly statist, nationalist, protectionnist, no-interventionnist


so you can understand than, if I was american, it would be difficult to me to choice between economically liberals republicans and socially leftist democrats Wink

(but i think, honestly, that at the end of the day, i would have choice democrats, for the miniml wage)

How did Owsley County, KY - the poorest county in America - vote?

22  Other Elections - Analysis and Discussion / Congressional Elections / Re: 2014 US Congressional Election Results on: November 05, 2014, 10:33:08 pm
So uh, Pryor is currently losing 39-57. Looks like he got Blanched after all

It's pretty amazing how Pryor, Landrieu, Grimes, Tennant, Nunn are all posting Obama-esque numbers in these states. Very, very grim. To Appalachia, (D) = Obama now.

The Senate map is basically the presidential map from 2012. It's terrifying. We can't win the senate if we can only win blue states.



RED states

don't forgot the wise rule of uselectionsatlas Wink

I know this is not nice to say, but if they knew their head from their Inks, they wouldn't be so damn poor. Poor people, more than others, really buy into the ignorant identity politics crap that the GOP excels at.




that's true, but not completely


dem offers to poors obviously better economics and social policy than rep

but WITH that, they are for minorities quotas, LGBT's stuff, pro-immigration, against death penalty


a party with join dem economics (welfare state, obamacare -or something like obamacare-, winimum wage, fight against debt) and the societal points I was speak about, this party would easily win all elections


but that's for not have such party than bipartism is on place...
