1  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: Which would have more impact? on: January 31, 2015, 08:12:57 pm
I think a pro-life candidate would be a bigger headache for the Dems than a pro-choice candidate would be for the Republicans, they have more to lose in terms of the female vote.

Polling generally has men more supportive of abortion rights than women.  That having been said, women are probably more likely to make it their single issue.



"Pro-choice" and "pro-life" are vague and meaningless terms-its far better to ask specific questions regarding abortion policy. In that regard, polling between genders is pretty similar.

True. A lot of self-identified pro-life people are probably expressing that they believe abortion is immoral and shouldn't happen, not that it should be illegal.

Well?

I think Christie is the most electable. In fact, in a Hillary vs. Republican race, Christie gives me a sense of electable security.

Electable security? Christie is the only one that makes CO lean D instead of toss up. Even Huckabee polls better there.
4  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / To what extent will Bill campaign with Hillary? on: January 30, 2015, 02:46:35 pm
Note with, not simply for. I know Hillary wants to distance herself from Bill to make it clear that she's her own person and own candidate, but I think it would be beneficial for them to be together in the public eye a bit more. Something like a joint interview every once in a while wouldn't hurt, Bill did them with Hillary all the time back in 92.

Democrats need to drop their support for affirmative action, and opposition to drug tests for welfare recipients and whatnot if they want to appeal to the "working class" voters again.

Basically it affirms a teacher's right to self-defense, and to defend the lives of their students.

After watching 'Mitt' he seems to be a FF personally, but still an HP as a politician.

The fake Cherokee will never be President. Hollywood/dailykos can't pick the candidate again, unless the Democrats want to lose even more seats.

16  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / Election What-ifs? / 2012: Bill Clinton endorses Romney on: January 25, 2015, 04:01:11 pm
Let's say Bill Clinton, out of personal hatred for Obama, decided to endorse Romney. I assume they wouldn't have allowed him to speak at the RNC like Zell Miller or Lieberman, but could it have moved any votes?
17  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: Chance Clinton Doesn't Run on: January 24, 2015, 01:20:54 am
I know a lot of Republicans are mighty scared of Clinton given her poll numbers, and it seems their best hope is for her not to run.

What's the chance Clinton gives this gift to the GOP?  It appears some are suggesting it's possible.

I say it's basically a 0% chance because the national Democratic party would destroy Clinton if she doesn't run, given her massive advantages in GE polling matchups.  They just won't let her pass up a run, even if she doesn't want one.

How could the national Democratic party "destroy" Clinton?
18  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / U.S. Presidential Election Results / Re: Best campaign: Clinton 1992 Reagan 1980 or Obama 2008 on: January 23, 2015, 01:17:13 am
Obama 2008 imo. His campaign revolutionized campaigning (even though his own party doesn't understand how to run the Obama turnout machine, while Republicans seem to have capitalized on it). Reagan didn't really change campaigning, and Clinton ran a terrible campaign (although that must be because Dick Morris was his campaign manager).

Dick Morris ran Clinton's 96 campaign. 92 was James Carville.

Hillary will win some moderate women who voted against Obama in states like OH, PA, FL ect. I fully expect her to at least match Obama's 2008 numbers with white women in those states. She might win a insignificant amount of anti-Obama Appalachians, but she's not flipping a single county in the upper south.
22  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: 2016: Cuomo vs Paul on: January 22, 2015, 09:18:37 am
No way Cuomo wins this. Paul would probably win younger votes, and the olds aren't voting Dem again for awhile.

24  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: PA-Mercyhurst University: Hillary & Biden lead favorability ranking on: January 21, 2015, 12:31:04 pm
The thing they shouldn't do is half-ass it with a small spend.

I have a feeling this is exactly what's going to happen. They'll know it's not too competitive because Hillary>Obama here, but then they'll realize they have such a small chance of winning the Presidency, they'll try to save Toomey and thus the Senate is a last ditch effort. It's just a disaster waiting to be mismanaged yet again.

Romney repeating McCain's last minute Pennsylvania gambit was quite amusing. You'd think they would just contest it from the beginning.

The pathetic thing was that they were going for a "blowout" by contesting PA, they actually believed the right wing talking points about skewed polls and thought they had the EV in the bag.
