Are you talking about this? If so, you can get to it from the "2016" button.

Yeah, thanks. 


Would be good if this stuff were more prominent.

Right now it looks like he might be the least worst option.

Apparently youth turnout is pretty high.

Where'd you hear that?

Voters 17-29 made up 17% of the electorate here in 2008. Let's see what that number ends up being today.

early exits have it as the same.

I know I saw a great page with this info on the Atlas, but I can't find it now. 

Is there a link to it from the front page?

What he said is Trump can't win it but he can make Clinton spend resources there.  He's very wrong about that too, but it's not the same level of crazy.

Perhaps he could have handled it better and done more to avoid the resulting loss of jobs and experience.  At some point though a government agency providing a monopoly service has to be able to function.
8  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: Predict the County: Vigo, IN on: May 02, 2016, 06:52:12 pm
Vigo will be a strong county for Trump, more than statewide.  Cruz's strength will be in places like Hamilton Co. and other Indianapolis suburbs, and in the Northeast (Ft Wayne area).

Dude, don't do this. We like having you around, but he's nearing inevitability, and the others' paths to the nomination are narrowing by the day.
No, no we don't.

There are worse posters.
Yeah and there are worse STDs to have than syphilis.

Nah. I'm pretty sure there's only one, and it's AIDS. The rest are equal to or less than syphilis. Let's not get into the nitty-gritty here.
wow, you know nothing of STDs.

tmi dude
10  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: Should Hillary run a "3 AM" ad against Trump? on: May 02, 2016, 03:27:18 pm
No, absolutely not.   If it's a contest between who can make a tough decision on a moment's notice, Trump wins.    It'll likely be a disastrous decision, but that's not the first thing that resonates emotionally.
11  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: Is the Republican party a racist party? on: May 02, 2016, 03:17:25 pm
I'm unwilling to say that it is, if only because there are some good-hearted Republicans (including on this forum) who I know are not racist, but at the same time many of the policies advocated have Lee Atwater's insidious imprint on them.   

Yes, of course there are good people in the Republican party. Though what this election has shown is that they are not the heart and soul of the party, the racists are. That is what I am pointing out.

If this campaign season has shown anything it is that neither major party has a single "heart and soul."  Both are fragile coalitions of diverse interests.

14  General Politics / Political Debate / urban housing reform proposal - what do you think? on: May 02, 2016, 01:06:32 pm
from Harry Candela, a candidate for the Norfolk City Council:
Quote
11. Reform the Norfolk Redevelopment and Housing Authority while protecting the Rights of those who have been most disadvantaged in the City, repaying a debt to those most held back by the City, creating stake holders, and building community improvement. The legacy of past Jim Crow discrimination and plantation slavery still exists today in Norfolk, and that is the reason the current residents of large scale public housing developments should be granted the deeds of the dwelling they are living in, forming condominiums of each building with a 10 year property tax waiver attached to the deeds. Doing this, the right thing, would actually be more cost effective than the City continuing to lord ownership and control over the residence thereof.

claiming a candidate is "collapsing" on the basis of prediction markets?   really?

17  General Politics / Individual Politics / Re: If you only could vote between Huckabee, Cruz and Santorum who'd you vote for? on: April 30, 2016, 05:58:42 pm
Huck. Santorum has slept with dead babies before, and I feel like there's just something off about Ted Cruz.

fwiw i'm not really sure why grieving over a miscarriage is such a big deal.

because icky

Oh, he said probably instead of definitely yes or no?   Wow, what a creep for not feigning certainty!

NJ and OR politicos don't think their constituents are smart enough to pump gas safely*.  (probably accurate in NJ)  The "no beer at the grocery store" is a mix of churchies not wanting to see Bud ads when buying bananas and job protectionism.



*it's actually just protectionism too

Anyone worried about the safety hazards of gas - seems like it'd make more sense to focus your concern on the person who's being exposed to the gas and fumes all day in their pumping job.
20  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: Assuming Trump is the Nominee...Which States Would Gary Johnson Win? Predictions on: April 28, 2016, 08:03:00 pm
Libertarians' support is fairly evenly spread across the country. Even if they get 20%, they're not winning any states.

And if you're a Libertarian, you should be fine with that. Winning states doesn't do anything except make the map look slightly more interesting.

there are these things called electoral votes.

Cruz + Trump vs. Others


(Puerto Rico: >70%)
23  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: Assuming Trump is the Nominee...Which States Would Gary Johnson Win? Predictions on: April 28, 2016, 01:17:43 pm
None. Maybe 5-10% in a few states.   I think there's a chance 3rd party combined vote in UT is greater than either Trump or Clinton, but more there will vote Constitution than Libertarian.
24  Forum Community / Off-topic Board / Re: Will Ferrell as Ronald Reagan on: April 28, 2016, 01:13:04 pm
http://cnn.it/26xwKTp

I think the immediate outrage is kind of ridiculous. Will Ferrell isn't going to portray Reagan as running around in his underwear in the White House. Let's give him the benefit of the doubt on that. If he does, then by all means criticize him. But give him the opportunity to make a good movie with an honest take on what struggles Reagan faced towards the end of his life.

The article says it's supposed to be a comedy.
25  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: 2016 U.S. Presidential Election on: April 28, 2016, 12:41:03 pm
Do you think that the location of Hewlett-Packard's headquarter in Palo Alto, which is very close to San Francisco and Silicon Valley, makes the selection of Carly Fiorina as Ted Cruz's running mate a good choice in order to win the California Primary on June 7, thus stopping Donald Trump from winning the nomination?

lol haven't thought about it this way.    This could cost Cruz any votes he might have had in Silicon Valley.
