51  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: Clinton vs. Bush 2016 Map on: February 09, 2015, 10:35:37 pm
For some reason Hillary is much less popular in CO than Obama.

She does poorly among the Latte/hipster demographics. They like catchy slogans but aren't interested in substance.

What is likely to happen

Bush wouldn't be "likely" to win VA.
53  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / Presidential Election Trends / Re: 49 state landslide either way. What are the last holdout states? on: February 09, 2015, 02:09:56 pm
I can't really think of a 100% Dem holdout state. VT, WA & OR would be decent candidates. OR for example was found in 2004 to have both the most liberal voters and the most conservative.

As for the GOP, easily MS. I don't care how many blacks MS has, basically 50-52% of MS is the most stubbornly Republican electorate in the country. It is unmovable. Even AL whites would be easier to move since a decent number are Appalachian.

MO & AZ are not happening. NC is more of a possibility than people seem to think.
55  General Politics / Individual Politics / What could Clinton have done differently in 93-94 to prevent the GOP revolution? on: February 07, 2015, 06:37:53 pm
Was it inevitable, or could the first half of his term have been handled better?

Biden wouldn't win IA.
57  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential General Election Polls / Re: NC: Meeting Street Research: Clinton +5 over Bush on: February 06, 2015, 05:22:27 pm
It looks as if it is taken for some advocacy group. Suspect until I see otherwise. Hillary Clinton up 5% over Bush or Romney in North Carolina is suspect.

Remember, Obama led everybody in almost all NC polls in 2011/early 2012. It just means the Dem/Dem leaning base is completely consolidated with Hillary now. The right leaning Independents will fall in line eventually.
58  General Politics / Individual Politics / Will "right track" ever be ahead of "wrong track" on Gallup again? on: February 05, 2015, 07:51:02 pm
"Right track" hasn't been at 50% since 2005. Will it ever be again, or have we entered an environment too cynical for it to ever happen again?

62  General Politics / Individual Politics / Re: Opinion of the pro-Clinton left on: February 04, 2015, 01:26:44 pm
Deluded hashtag Democrats cheerily joining a disturbing coalition of gay men, beer-swilling crackers and dowdy soccer moms. At least the latter two groups know that Clinton is temperamentally and philosophically a Republican.

So...only ugly women support Clinton?
63  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: Can Mike Pence appeal to black voters? on: February 04, 2015, 01:24:36 pm
Can Indiana Gov. Mike Pence appeal to black voters like Christie, Paul, and Kasich could? Pence did well with the African-American vote in his 2012 gubernatorial win. He won 14 percent of the African American vote in 2012.

Excuse me?
64  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: What damage would a GOP candidate cause themself by supporting gay marriage? on: February 03, 2015, 04:51:57 pm
There would be tremendous damage. The gay agenda, the reckless destruction of norms literally thousands of years old, is the defining issue of our time. The base is livid over lawless, activist judges. Romney (who I still genuinely doubt was actually trying to win) shamefully ignored the homosexual agenda and suffered the consequences. Probably because he secretly supported it as well, judging from his record as governor.

And let's face it, the GOP has no creative economic plans, so it needs to rally people on the social issues.

Oh, that would be fantastic. Hillary talking about the recovering economy while the GOP candidate stands there blabbering about the "gay agenda". Unfortunately it's too much to hope for. What's frightening is people like you actually think that would work for your guy.
65  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / What damage would a GOP candidate cause themself by supporting gay marriage? on: February 03, 2015, 02:56:21 pm
Let's say after the primaries, either during the summer or fall, the GOP candidate pulls an Obama and comes out in favor of gay marriage. What does it do to their support?
66  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: "Sick Privilege on: February 03, 2015, 12:01:35 pm
No. Even if it makes no logical sense, they still may have religious reasons for it, and confiscating the kids because of that would interfere with Freedom of Religion. I understand a government that isn't all-powerful is a foreign concept to this forum, but people still have their rights. Children aren't the property of muh guvment, and this very idea that they can force parents to put something in their kid's bodies is sickening.

It's sickening to think that parents should be able to deny their children medical care for "religious reasons". You do realize children have died because parents wouldn't give their children medicine or allow them cancer treatment, right?
67  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Who should run Hillary's campaign? on: February 03, 2015, 11:58:11 am
Should she try to get someone from Obama's inner circle? The Clinton's might be loyal types, but I don't think she should pick anyone that had a management position in her last campaign. She needs new people.
68  General Politics / Individual Politics / Re: Is polygamy a Civil Rights issue? (serious question) on: February 03, 2015, 11:51:47 am
Yes. If a woman wants to enter a legal contract with her husband and other wives she should have that right. I suppose some of you people haven't watched Big Love. It isn't always a horror show.
69  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential General Election Polls / Re: FL/PA/OH-Quinnipiac: Clinton leads all Republicans in all three states on: February 03, 2015, 11:48:26 am
I want to believe these numbers but Quinnipiac always has Clinton way inflated compared to PPP in FL and to some extent OH.
70  General Politics / Individual Politics / Re: Your 3 favorite/least favorite Obama and Romney states on: February 02, 2015, 06:16:52 pm
Favorite Obama: Maine, Minnesota, Washington
Least favorite Obama: New Jersey, Maryland, Delaware

Favorite Romney: Kentucky, Oklahoma, West Virginia
Least Favorite Romney: Alabama, Mississippi, South Carolina
71  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: Which campaign would be more hilarious? Lindsay Graham or George Pataki? on: February 02, 2015, 05:58:54 pm
Bernie Sanders will be a hoot. Not only does he look insane, he IS.
HA HA HA ROFL HA HA HA YOU ARE SO CLEVER AND ORIGINAL

Anywho, don't dismiss Pataki. He won't be the nominee, but I think he is a potential darkhorse candidate who might gain in the polls.

New York Republican=Joke candidate.
72  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.

http://www.cbsnews.com/news/poll-strong-support-for-abortion-rights/

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?
74  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: Should anyone GOPer in the current "group" scare the Democrats? on: January 30, 2015, 02:54:28 pm
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.
75  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.
