Spot-on impression of Trump! Can't imagine how either Democrat can win after such a divided primary.

The problem is that none of the establishment candidates have presented themselves as the alternative to Trump in New Hampshire. Hence why several of them have hovered around 10%. Now that Rubio is asserting himself, I expect Bush and Katich's support to drop in the next few days.

10  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: Who's more electable in a general... on: February 02, 2016, 02:33:31 am
It's hard - I think that ultimately, Cruz is more tolerable to the base and appears more sane (lol). However, Trump has hit the right cord with a bunch of dissatisfied folks that don't typically vote. Additionally, while Cruz is the more sane choice, it's like choosing between two spoiled apples to most swing voters, so I suspect that they would vote for the Democrat regardless.

I'm going to say Trump, for now. I'd still prefer Cruz of the two because I think he would (barely) make a better president.

I watched this live and found it odd. They only counted new people on their side and added it to their prior total. If 4 people switched then Bernie would have won 5-4, making him 2 votes closer.

The fact that the media is trying to spill this as a win for Sanders is laughable (though very predictable). It's a virtual tie, but it's in one of Sanders' top 5 states demographically. It would be equivalent to Bernie tying Clinton in a Deep South state.
Sanders started this race in single digits, little resources and low name recognition. He was able to tie Clinton in a state. That's pretty impressive - how many people suspected when he first announced that he would be even with Clinton tonight?

Is Rubio going to say anything about Cruz or Trump?   He is talking like someone who won.
He did. Maybe not in terms of actual numbers, but tonight he solidified himself as the establishment choice.

Des Moines Precinct 70 was tied, 61-61, and was decided by a coin flip. Went for Hillary. Every vote matters!

Not good, but will become terrible if Rubio beats him out for 2nd. Many polls had him leading outside of the margin of error.

I have appointed Dereich to the Midwest Senate, which was vacated by CarpetBagger when he returned to the Midwest Legislature.

If Rubio comes in 2nd, I think he might be the likely nominee.
He'd stand a good shot. But if Rubio wins? I didn't see it as likely, but the two polls tonight make me think it isn't impossible. If Rubio wins Iowa, everyone else needs to drop out so he can win New Hampshire, too.

I have a real life question for Tmthforu are you actually supporting Bernie or is this support just ironic
Of those I currently see as viable options, he is my favorite. That being said, if another candidate becomes viable that I like more, I may switch.

Statement from Governor Tmthforu94

Largely thanks to the efforts of President Adam Griffin, I am optimistic for the future of the Midwest. I will not be leaving for the Senate at this point - my commitment has always been to this region, and I want to ensure it is stable and active.

Snowguy has been appointed to the Midwest Legislative Assembly, and hopefully we will have another appointment soon to fill all seats. As a reminder, we also have the position of Chief Judicial Officer open, if anyone is interested.

I am afraid I do not have the time available that I did last fall. I will be cheering from the sidelines. Best of luck to everyone. Smiley

I hereby appoint Snowguy to the Midwest Legislative Assembly. In an effort to run things by the book, I have contacted CELTICEMPIRE, the only member of the Legislature, to come in here and confirm him.

PRINCIPLE VOTE

Question 1: How long should each presidential term last?
[2] Two (2) Months
[1] Four (4) Months
[3] Six (6) Months

Question 2a: Should there be a limit on the number of terms a person may serve as president?
[3] Yes
[2] Yes, but the limit should only apply to consecutive terms
[1] No

Question 2b: If Question 2a passes, what is the maximum number of terms a person should be able to serve as president?
[3] One (1) term
[1] Two (2) terms
[2] Three (3) terms
I'm a little confused with 2b, considering 2a's 2nd and 3rd options, but I'll wait to see what the final outcome is and we'll go from there.

Question: How, if at all, do you plan to interact with regional governments?

Governor Leinad, though I will say, we have three pretty solid choices. Could be MUCH worse.
