Specifically, the Republican internals have Trump down double digits in the Raleigh and Charlotte suburbs. If the GOP lose that, it'll be like NoVA again.

Similarly, the last Marquette poll had Clinton winning the WOW counties in Wisconsin, which went to Romney by 30. Trump is flat-lining in affluent suburbs.

WAT

LOL. Safe D Wisconsin. That's a landslide here then. Something around the lines of 60-40.

Marquette had Clinton up by 5% (4 way vote) in the Milwaukee media market, outside of the city of Milwaukee. This includes the WOW counties, but also includes the Milwaukee County suburbs, Racine, Kenosha, Sheboygan, Fond du Lac, Jefferson, and Walworth counties.

Oh, okay, that's at least within the realm of comprehension. Although even that broader area was won by McCain 53-46 in 2008, so Trump is still badly under-performing there.

What are the WOW counties? Pardon the ignorance.
Waukesha-Ozaukee-Washington.

Getting far too close for comfort. And this is not the only piece of evidence. Efforts to destroy the fiend should be redoubled.
I think a large part of it is that she needs to raise her own favorable ratings, trump is still at the same level of support he is in pretty much all polls at about 39%.

Shes only winning women by 2 in this and there are more undecided women. But that probably still leaves it at about trump 2.

Clinton favorables: 43/53
Trump favorables: 27/65!!!

This was all very predictable...From before the WI primary...



And right there you can see the HUGE educational divide. Farming/blue collar/poor outstate is for Trump but has a lot less population.
Well that was Last month from R primary voters. The crosstabs from this poll for the whole electorate has him with his best favorable ratings in the green bay region.

Also don't know if this is worth knowing about but Democratic votes in WI-07 slightly exceeded Republican votes.
Probably In part because of my county, we had a competitive DA race that Republicans crossed over for.

Former school trustee Mary Hoeft is well ahead of Marathon County Supervisor Joel Lewis in Wisconsin 7th.  Is that an upset?
No, she was endorsed by former Congressman Dave Obey as well as pretty much all the other Dem elected officials and party officials in the district http://www.maryhoeftforcongress.com/endorsements/ Interestingly enough a former coworker of mine is on this list.

So when do we think elected Republicans will start abandoning Trump in mass?

Probably not until October.
Once congressional primary season is over so mid September probably.

Wow, that speech could have been given at any convention.

PBS pointed out that she didn't say the last line of her speech: "That leader is Donald Trump."
I think people criticizing her don't realize she was just there to try and sell NASA to republicans.

Objectively, even if you think this criticism is unfair, this is going to be perhaps the single thing people remember from this convention, unless, as someone else pointed out, someone does something even more blatant and stupid. This has the potential to put a major dent in the post-convention bounce that Trump was counting on and sets up the Democrats well going into August.
We have three more days of insanity I have my doubts this will be it.

Krazen still posts over at Red racing horses I think. Though im not sure he fits in all that well there since about 70% of them hate trump and he supports him.

Interesting guardian article
 https://www.theguardian.com/world/2016/jul/18/military-coup-was-well-planned-and-very-nearly-succeeded-say-turkish-officials?CMP=share_btn_tw

Also this nice image that shows that despite not being fans of edrogan turks do not want military Coups to solve their problems.

Killing Erdogan to create another Menderes. Coup leaders wouldn't be dumb to kill him.

On the contrary, it is usually preferable to assassinate the leader if it is impossible to arrest them.

For example the 20 July Plot failed because the plotters failed to assasinate Hitler, and the coup subsequently failed because of this.

I agree.  In fact that they failed to shoot down Erdogan adds to the argument that this might have been staged.
Has the Chinese Gov ever even pulled off something that elaborate? It would be extremely hard to pull off something of this scale if it was just fake .
18  General Politics / International General Discussion / Re: On-Going Military Coup in Turkey on: July 16, 2016, 01:50:49 am
The Idea that Erdogan planned this all himself would make him one of the greatest masterminds of all time. I don't think anyone who has heard him speak would think that.

Some statewide tidbits from the new Marquette poll:

Should marijuana be legalized and regulated like alcohol? (Prior poll with a similar question was September 2014)

Yes 59% (+13)
No 39% (-12)

Scott Walker's approval rating:

38% approve (-1)
58% disapprove (+1)

Walker's approvals have yet to rebound since his presidential run.

Paul Ryan's favorability rating:

48% favorable (-1)
33% unfavorable (+1)

President Obama's approval rating:

51% approval (+/-0)
45% disapproval (+2)

I think it is increasingly likely walker doesn't run again. Good rec marijuana numbers, a advisory referendum on it would be fun.

In all fairness to the insanity of reddit sanders supporters, we all do remember Hilaryis44 right? Which is now a pro Trump site.

Very good for Clinton. She's got this state.

It's an okay showing. She should send in Sanders and Obama to help lock it down for her (and for Big Russ) though.
That was her plan prior to orlando.

Today I realized that the system is actually rigged. Even contemplating if Sanders was a Clinton plant after all... This is unbelievable. His campaign was supposed to be the anti-thesis of Clinton, now he's endorsing her?

"Please STOP asking for us to support Hillary Clinton" is currently the top post in the sub the day before bernie asks his supporters to support Hillary Clinton.

The only reason they did this is because the US puts travel warnings on them.

“When fascism comes to America, it will be wrapped in the flag and carrying a cross.”
A Trump Flynn ticket would probably be the least cross bearing GOP ticket to date. But the rest applies.
