51  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / Election What-ifs? / Re: If Mondale hadn't run in 1984 on: February 21, 2014, 11:07:33 am
Reagan was still going to win reelection regardless who the Dems nominated in 1984.


Agreed. All I was asking was whether Mondale had a chance to win the Democratic nomination in 1988 if he hadn't run in 84.

Good, does anyone really want more of this?


This is the only kind of interview that isn't completely pointless. Why not address the major criticisms from the other side? Even if it's nonsense, 40% of the country believes that nonsense.
53  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / Election What-ifs? / If Mondale hadn't run in 1984 on: February 15, 2014, 11:54:06 pm
Could he have gotten the nomination in 1988? I mean, people say 84 was his only chance, but it's not like Dukakis was a more electrifying candidate.
54  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: Cuomo versus Bush on: February 09, 2014, 01:12:54 pm
Bush. Cuomo is not dissimilar enough from Bush to drive out the liberal base.
55  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: Will Hillary win the white female vote? on: January 26, 2014, 10:36:03 am
It's a possibility. The south, especially TX, drag the national white vote down for Dems a bit. Bush only won white women by 1 point, and within the margin of error, according to exit polls for 2000. So Gore probably won them outside the south. Clinton definitely has a chance against Christie.

Who cares? He stabbed an innocent woman, a pregnant one no less. I think that every murderer should be killed in the same manner as their victim, so he still got off easy imo.

San Francisco. The rain/cloudiness in Seattle wouldn't help with my depression.
59  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential General Election Polls / Re: KY-PPP: Republicans (except Cruz) slightly ahead of Hillary on: January 08, 2014, 08:00:50 pm
Kentucky will not vote for Hillary. It's actually amazing that her husband won it amidst his war with the tobacco industry.
Bill Clinton probably won Kentucky due to Ross Perot's third-party run syphoning off voters who would have otherwise went for Bob Dole.

Still, 46% is quite high compared to everyone else that come since.

Good developments.

What an absurd remark. Who's he to say who "deserves" to be a senator? The people of Kentucky elected him, he deserves to be there.
62  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: Congressman Aaron Schock outed? on: January 05, 2014, 07:11:21 pm
I still don't think it's hypocritical for him to like getting some action with other men, and to disagree with gay marriage or hate crime legislation philosophically. He almost certainly doesn't disagree with it and is pandering, I get that, but the only thing that would make him a hypocrite in my book is if he wanted homosexuality criminalized. As long as he's not in a homosexual marriage, I don't see him opposing it as necessarily hypocritical.
Yeah cuz that's what sexuality is:  "Getting some action with other men" but to otherwise disagree with gay marriage or hate crime legislation 'philosophically'.

Please.

Don't trivialize my sexuality with your awful (and misguided) moderate heroism.

I'm not trying to trivialize anything, I was talking about his personal life, not all homosexuals. Obviously being gay is a lot more than just sex, but It seems to be the extent of it for him, since he apparently isn't engaging himself in an actual relationship.

I don't get why he's a hypocrite. Just because he enjoys gay sex he necessarily needs to support gay marriage?
65  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential General Election Polls / Re: KY-PPP: Republicans (except Cruz) slightly ahead of Hillary on: January 03, 2014, 05:11:34 pm
Didn't you say the only reason Kerry lost KY was because of voter fraud?

He lost the whole election because of fraud.

Debatable. But I asked about KY, which voted Bush 60-40.
66  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential General Election Polls / Re: KY-PPP: Republicans (except Cruz) slightly ahead of Hillary on: January 03, 2014, 05:07:12 pm
Kentucky will not vote for Hillary.

The way things are going, it just might. This poll was taken many weeks ago.

Didn't you say the only reason Kerry lost KY was because of voter fraud?

68  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: If Christie doesn't run... on: January 02, 2014, 05:12:33 pm
But if RINO Christie doesn't get the nomination, what excuse will conservatives use if they lose the election? Their defense in every loss since 1976 is that the nominee "wasn't conservative enough".
69  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: MSNBC Makes Fun of Romney's Adopted Black Grandson on: December 31, 2013, 08:31:02 pm
Anyone offended by this is way too sensitive. Of course none of the conservative bloggers and the like are actually offended.

Interesting that this only ever became a gay thing and people glossed over his much more problematic racist comments.

Exactly. It is absolutely dumbfounding to me that a national star actually said blacks were happy under Jim Crow and it isn't a controversy at all. You'd have to think at least 40% share his views on gays, who's going to agree with (or admit to agreeing with) that nonsense? If people really wanted him gone, that should have been the focus.
71  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential General Election Polls / Re: KY-PPP: Republicans (except Cruz) slightly ahead of Hillary on: December 23, 2013, 02:05:18 pm
Why won't PPP poll AR? Because we need a new TX poll a few weeks?
72  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential General Election Polls / Re: PPP: Christie victorious against ALL Democrats tested on: December 18, 2013, 01:57:47 pm
How is this possible? The guy is nothing but a self-righteous blowhard.
73  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: Megyn Kelly: "Jesus was a white man ... This is a verifiable fact." on: December 13, 2013, 11:18:59 am
Maybe this is a Mississippi peculiarity, but I've seen lots of black Santas around in malls, parades, and whatnot.  I have never thought of Santa as exclusively white and think it's kinda weird that apparently some people do.

Agreed. IMO Santa isn't 'officially' white.
74  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential General Election Polls / Re: Quinnipiac National Poll: Christie+1 vs. Hillary on: December 11, 2013, 07:48:38 pm
Oh, she is so unbeatable!

At least 50% of the US will consider voting for Hillary. The most a GOP candidate polls at is 42%.
75  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential General Election Polls / Re: MI-PPP: Hillary barely ahead in Michigan on: December 11, 2013, 07:46:16 pm
Strangely quiet around these parts...

Don't get excited. This same thing happened in 2008, Obama consistently polled only a few points ahead of McCain in MI, so you guys said McCain could win it and it was a swing state. But McCain never polled above like say 44%, and Obama's ceiling was higher. If a candidate's poll numbers vary from around 45-49%, then a 46-44% lead over an opponent doesn't indicate a swing state when the opponent's numbers don't move. Look at the numbers now, at least 49% of the state will consider voting for Hillary. The most one of your guys polls at is 42%. If a GOP candidate can poll above 45%, then it might be winnable.
