A lottery ticket will either win or it won't. Buy a ticket and you have a 50/50 chance of winning the lottery.

Tbf from what I've seen she is way better than Seth Meyers.

It's really weird how political chat shows are in the US. I can't imagine Graham Norton opining about his thoughts on Tory policy or whatever.

That's mostly due to The Daily Show's success, and it wasn't a political show when it started either. Pre-Stewart it was mostly just a parody of trashy celebrity gossip tabloid shows. The political stuff started with the coverage of the 2000 election aftermath. And of course Bee and Colbert come from it.

Trying to bluff like that seems pointless. If I was a GOP congressman in a competitive district, why would I vote for a terrible bill that would endanger me if it was going to pass anyway?

The funny thing is all Scandinavian countries except Sweden have right wing governments, and Sweden did until about two years ago.

Family Guy is so bad now the world would be better if it didn't exist at all.

Um, no? It's still as hilarious as ever.

She's talented, but the brand of politics she's desperately pushing for is beyond awful.

Uh,what the hell? I don't see how anyone left of center couldn't find her politics great, in step with Bernie and his movement actually.

LOL, you mean the movement that she relentlessly mocked during a campaign and still occasionally likes to blame for Hillary's loss?

Uh, when? I've only seen her bash Republicans. But she's pretty all liberal, all the time.

"The neocons" don't need to be stopped, they barely exist anymore. Neoconservativism is effectively a dead ideology with people like John McCain being the equivalent of people who still vote for communist parties in some European countries.

"OMG but what about Trump's attack on Syria?"

It's possible for people who are not neoconservatives to authorize military actions you do not agree with. The term is a very explicitly defined ideology, not just another term for "hawk".

Is reporting someone's posts yet not believing that person is worthy of a ban such a hard to grasp concept?

Obama won Indiana, so this isn't too hard given the right circumstances.
And? Polls of Indiana leading up to the election had Obama and McCain about tied, so I'm not sure what you're getting at?
Polls can change in response to new events.

What is going to cause a 20 point swing in one week?

Dammit. I want to order it and it turns out that of all places it's pressed in New Zealand.

Not really a fan of this concept of the Jewish and Christian God being different from the Muslim God.

Where does this shirt say that?

Clearly no. Trump wasn't down 20 points. Le Pen winning would be equivalent to Trump winning Massachusetts, not winning at all (and he didn't win the popular vote anyway, which is what counts in France, so...)

Wow, JJ was a sh**te tier poster from what it seems!

Scary thing is, that's not even him at his worst. Not even close.

Hey guys Trump won. That means that EVERY SINGLE CANDIDATE that people don't expect to win who trails in the polls right before the election from then until the end of time will win. The rules have totally changed![/so many Atlas posters]

Just announced:

Dupont-Aignan would become Le Pen's PM, if she *somehow* wins.

The political death of Nicolas Dupont-Aignan. RIP

He got 5% in the first round, his best result yet. What else should we expect from him ? Becoming PM under Le Pen would be his career highlight and his best bet.

Anyway, it would be great to see a new Elabe poll. They were the best in round 1.

Well, Le Pen isn't going to win so he won't become Prime Minister and now everyone will associate him with the woefully unpopular Le Pen.

Trump wasn't supposed to win either.

OH MY F[INKS]...URGH

CAN YOU SERIOUSLY NOT UNDERSTAND THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN THIS ELECTIONS OR KNOW HOW TO READ POLLS?



THIS IS LIKE PREDICTING TRUMP WOULD WIN MASSACHUSETTS.

Not to mention that Trump actually DID lose the popular vote, WHICH IS WHAT COUNTS IN THIS CASE.

LEARN TO DO SOME MATH AND SOME BASIC INFO ABOUT ELECTIONS YOU INSUFFERABLE BEDWETTERS, URGH!

Has this sort of thing ever been funny?

The only one who ever successfully pulled this sort of thing off was Vander Blubb, and even then his parodies were quite different in that he parodied individual posters, not some vague archetype. That is never funny. Never do it.
123  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: Poll: Grade trump on his first 100 days in office on: April 30, 2017, 11:39:02 am
F.

Arguing that an F should be reserved only for things like the Iraq War is absurd. In most grading systems, 59% is an F. 0% is also an F. Obviously there's a wide range in between those two, but both are Fs. Trump's score isn't (yet) as low as George W. Bush, but neither one is remotely close to a passing grade.
