101  Forum Community / Forum Community / Did this election prove opebo right about "The Bad Place"? on: November 23, 2016, 09:35:36 am
I think "The Bad Place" is a pretty fitting description now.

Incidentally if 25% of Presidents lose as this stat seems to imply, the consider the last three Presidents were Bill Clinton, George W. Bush and Barack Obama. We're due for one!

Yeah the logic and math there is very faulty, but it's not any less sound than the OP.

YES

Then I heard the voice of the Senator saying, "Whom shall I send? And who will go for us?" And I said, "Here am I. Send me!"

Get help. Is this some warped reference to "Here I Am, Lord"?

What's "Here I Am, Lord"?

It's a reference to Isaiah 6:8.

Also the Democratic primary rules are much different from the Republican ones. Which is why Trump isn't really a fitting precedent.

Trump won 100% of the delegates in South Carolina with less than 33% of the vote. He won a majority of the delegates in most Super Tuesday states despite not winning a majority in any.

That can't happen under the Democratic rules, and then throw in superdelegates.

It's possible that he'll win the pledged delegates by such a wide margin (say, West 35% Gillibrand 16% Klobuchar 14% Booker 13% S. Brown 12% K. Brown 5%) that superdelegates will hand the nomination to him out of fear of alienating his supporters. It's worth noting that the superdelegates haven't actually gone against the pledged delegate winner yet in their history.

And where's he going to get 35% of the vote from?

Actually in that scenario he'd still lose since trailing candidates would drop out and the anti-West vote would consolidate.

That's why Kanye would lose in a landslide - Trump at least had a simple narrative he stuck to over the course of a campaign. Kanye can barely keep a narrative through a concert. Trump isn't the Republican equivalent of Kanye. Kanye is probably closer to the Republicans nominating Clint Eastwood in full-on chair-on-the-stage mode.

But that also begs the question how could he even win the primary in the first place then with such a sloppy campaign? (and just repeating "muh black vote" over and over doesn't answer it, elderly blacks, the type most likely to vote don't give a f[inks] about him, and the black vote is nowhere near enough on its own enough to win a Democratic primary especially with lily-white states opening the season, [how the f[inks] is New Hampshire "tailor made" for him?], Millennials almost certainly would back Sanders or a Sanders-like candidate speaking to the issues they care about over him [can you imagine Kanye West introducing a coherent student loan debt plan?] and the type of liberal activists who go to caucuses won't back him. He has virtually no appeal to the non-black parts of Hillary and Obama's coalitions, and it's a stretch to assume he'd even get the black vote in those numbers.])

You would be correct. Show hasn't been good since season 11 the movie.

Fixed it.

Bernie worship echo chamber. HF.

? I guess you weren't there during the primaries when people like Lief, oakvale, bedstuy, King, Chris Constantini etc set the mood irt Sanders.

Heh, I remember some months ago King, in a single post, first claimed "Democrats can't lose because blue wall", then, just a few sentences later, added Democrats will lose if they don't nominate Clinton.

I hope usually levelheaded posters like him will now regain their senses after this embarrassment.

He's on the Sanders bandwagon now.
113  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Will Trump push for recognition of the Russian annexation of Crimea? on: November 19, 2016, 01:43:15 pm
Probably. He'll also probably cut off all military and foreign aid to Ukraine. What I wonder is how the True Leftist types who've been wanting to recognize said Russian annexation and rave about the Nazi coup government in Kiev will react.

117  Other Elections - Analysis and Discussion / Gubernatorial/Statewide Elections / Re: Maine makes history on: November 14, 2016, 11:30:04 pm
I am not saying it is difficult to understand. However, everything is about the margin, and the marginal voter might be confused that he is suddenly using numbers on his ballot where he previously used checkmarks. Maybe that drops turnout from 69% to 67%.

Is it so absurd to think that it is possible that 2% of the voting age population really is that stupid?

Speaking as someone who lives in a city that has already been using IRV for its city elections since 2013 with no drops in turnout or serious issues at all I can only reply "LOL".
118  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: Keith Ellison, Howard Dean offered as possible DNC chairs on: November 13, 2016, 04:40:52 pm
As long as Ellison quits congress I'd be happy with him

I'd actually be fine with that, provided that Ilhan Omar replaces him.

Ilan Omar sounds awesome -has she expressed interest in running for Keith Ellison's seat if he became DNC chair?

She hasn't even taken state legislative office yet. What do you think?

I highly doubt Ellison will resign even if he gets the spot but if he does I can think of multiple people who'd be interested in the seat with far more clout than Omar.
119  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: So the Republicans defeated Obama on: November 09, 2016, 11:57:51 pm
Two midterm waves and a stunning Presidential election defeat as he left office, leaving the Republicans with a mandate to appoint a Supreme Court justice and overturn his signature accomplishment, Obamacare. Has any two-term President ever suffered such a stunning rebuke after their Presidency?

121  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: Is Obamacare dead now? on: November 09, 2016, 08:34:03 pm
Ryan's plan on this was basically repeal Obamacare and replace it with something that was basically just a restructured version of Obamacare. I suspect we'll see something along those lines. Although I don't doubt it'll lose some good features.

124  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: Poll: How close will Nevada be won on Nov 8th ? on: November 07, 2016, 05:47:56 pm
So far we have a total of 51 votes, and ...

90.2%  believe Clinton will win Nevada.
9.8%  believe trump will win Nevada.

LOL if we went by the atlas forum clinton would carry all 50 states and the popular vote by 80-85%. You have to be kidding.

I mean, I guess you can just make crap up and pretend it's true, but it's demonstrably not. Then again, facts haven't stopped Republicans before.

Okay, well if you want to go by "facts" and "polls" http://www.realclearpolitics.com/epolls/2016/president/nv/nevada_trump_vs_clinton-5891.html

Last 4 polls taken in Nevada:

Trump - +6
Tie
Clinton - +1
Trump - +1

RCP average - Trump +1.5%

But like i said according to this board NV is already a complete lost cause for Trump and he has no chance to win there, LOL. Okay then, we will see..
So then why do you have Trump winning PA and MI where he's never led a poll?
