51  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.

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?

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.

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?

60  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".
61  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.
62  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: He came back: Phil Robertson on: December 28, 2013, 10:02:26 am
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.

Why won't PPP poll AR? Because we need a new TX poll a few weeks?

How is this possible? The guy is nothing but a self-righteous blowhard.

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.
66  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%.
67  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.

Disgusting. He should be in jail.
69  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: LGBT voting on: November 15, 2013, 06:47:10 pm
Bush was a hardcore social con who was pushing a federal amendment to ban gay marriage. McCain (image wise) was seen as a more socially moderate, sane conservative. If he hadn't picked Palin, I think Obama's number would have been even lower.

Kick him out of the party, true Democrats stand by our President and his chief policy achievement.

I thought this was a troll post at first, kind of frightening that it isn't.
71  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: Which Media Outlet is More Biased? on: November 08, 2013, 10:43:35 am
They are both about the same. FOX is more passive aggressive about it though, MSNBC is pretty blatant. Both are equally disgusting.
72  Questions and Answers / The Atlas / Why was my 2011 Aids/Restaurants thread locked? on: September 25, 2013, 02:47:32 pm
http://uselectionatlas.org/FORUM/index.php?topic=143283.0

Yes, this is an old issue, and I admit I initially complained about this injustice in the wrong section. But I still feel it needs to be addressed.

Somehow, my thread was locked and I got infraction points for "trolling", points that remain to this day. Beet was the moderator of the section at the time, and apparently responsible for this, although I can't be 100% sure of course. I consider this a huge injustice, because:

A.As I pointed out, this was an issue that was brought up on a national television series, so not only was the scenario not mine, but it was apparently considered a worthy discussion by professionals.
B.It seemed to be generating a decent amount of discussion and not one person complained that it was trolling or was offended by it. Why would they be when I was simply bringing an discussion from a tv show on here?

I realize I should have gotten over this by now, but people on here have complained about less.
73  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / Presidential Election Trends / Re: Do comedians like Bill Maher hurt Democrats with rural/white voters? on: May 21, 2013, 05:44:55 pm
Taking the question literally, no, I don't think anyone really cares that much what a comedian says, much less base their vote on it. However, Maher types certainly do turn people off the party.
74  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: Who do you trust more in regards to claims about Benghazi? on: May 18, 2013, 05:14:21 pm
Can't really trust either, the GOP want to sink Obama, but the administration obviously has interests to protect.
75  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: Who will you vote for in 2016? on: May 17, 2013, 10:24:19 am
Of all the candidates named above, Schweitzer beats them all hands-down. But Elizabeth Warren would be better.

Only a Kentucky liberal would say that. Again, Schweitzer is not a Democrat. He is incompatible with the 21st century Democratic agenda.
