Real pancakes are FF. Microwave pancakes are HF.
52  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Who would have the best shot at IA? on: August 23, 2014, 10:29:22 am
Hillary seems relatively weak there, but this goes for any potential match-up. Which potential GOP candidate would have the best shot at picking up IA in the general election? I'd go with Walker, a Midwestern Governor should do well there, and as far as I know there's no strong union presence in the state.

You folks act like the entire state of Kentucky is full of a bunch of seething right-wing racists.

No, of course there are progressives.  The point is that Clinton is a candidate who could win the votes of said rural "racists" who are, according to voter registration maps, by and large registered Democrats.

A good 20% almost never vote Democrat for any office, let alone President. Same with OK.

They have a pretty popular Democratic governor and have elected Democrats to that office with regularity.  Just because they don't vote for national Democrats who are often socially liberal doesn't mean they aren't Democrats.  After all, the state carried for Clinton twice.

With 45% & 46%, respectively. I don't doubt Hillary could get there in a good climate, but beyond that? I'm not so sure.

No worse than someone like Janeane Garofalo on the liberal side.

He wouldn't win MO. What exactly would he bring to a ticket?

Why does KY like Hillary more than AR now?

Agree with all except #7.

Ford won IN by 7%. No way Dole swung that.

Hillary would not have won MT. Obama had special appeal in that part of the country, Hillary was/ is actively disliked there.

Conway is also much better known than the GOP candidates, and even with that name rec bump, he only leads Comers by 3, not a real convincing margin.

People don't know yet that Comer is a Tea Party member.

Correct. Once they find out Comer should be comfortably ahead.
64  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / When will this hideous polarization end? on: August 08, 2014, 06:44:47 pm
The number of swing states dwindles each cycle, as polarization increases. I'm sick of the blue firewall, and I'm sick of red America. 2012 was a dull map, and 2016 looks like it's going to be worse. Can anyone expand the map? You people can't possibly be enjoying this from a political junkie standpoint.

Christie should play well in CT, no?

I will never understand the kind of people who would oppose 8. What a strange place their minds must be.

The idea that state-sponsored gambling creates perverse incentives is not difficult to wrap your head around.

No, but the concept of actually caring is.

What?

Forget it. To be perfectly honest I'm not really informed or intelligent enough for this section and should probably stick to the 2016 threads.

70  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: Pat Robertson is a fan of Jindal on: August 06, 2014, 11:00:53 pm
Jindal is a religious nutcase himself, he believes he witnessed an actual exorcism.

Would you have went harsh towards him if he believed he witnessed a physical healing via folks laying hands on someone and praying for them?




If he believed that the healing actually worked, then yes.

I've actually seen such. Later to be affirmed and confirmed by medical science.

Yeah, sure.

So states are starting to move back to their normal places. Good.

Good because you like the results or good because you like the polarized map? I find it pretty boring myself.

Stop contesting? The contest hasn't even started yet.

Case in point. The talk of Hillary putting AR into play is way overblown, IMO.

Why act like it's some bizarre myth people have perpetrated? The last time PPP polled the state she led every candidate sans Huckabee, thus putting it into play.
75  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: Clinton's Southern Ceiling on: August 04, 2014, 01:33:22 pm
I think Hillary has better chances in Kentucky and West Virginia than in Louisiana (not that I think she has that much of a chance in any).  Louisiana is in the Deep South, and thus more inelastic and racially polarized.

WV=Coal/LA=Cajun. Hillary would win LA before WV easily.
