She'd probably be more competent than her husband, less so than Obama as President.

Pretty much agree, though she is also clearly a less competent campaigner than both her husband and Obama.

As you might expect on the Dem side. Pretty decent for TRUMP though.

Tim Farron (Liberal Democrat - Westmorland and Lonsdale)

The most low-profile centre party leader since Clement Davies, surely. The only thing of note he's done since his election was his stumbling over questions about his dubious views on certain social issues. Still, he's built up an impressive following in his own seat and it is by far the 'safest' of the eight held by the party.

The Super Bowl gets more viewers than the general election gets voters, doesn't it?

There was a time over here, believe it or not, when soap operas regularly got the UK equivalent of a Super Bowl level audience (20 to 30 million or a third to half of the population). The big ones still get 5 to 10 million which would be 25 to 50 million over there.

RIP Christie.

Trump has a woman problem:

39% Men
23% Woman
31% Total

Clinton would destroy him.  She may get 60+% of woman against Trump.





Far bigger than the entrance polls in Iowa showed.

Quinnipiac picked the wrong winner in Iowa for both parties.

And yet most on here took PPP's most recent national poll seriously.

Politicians who come off as 'nice' are often the nastiest...
9  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: When will Rubio emerge as the presumptive nominee? on: February 04, 2016, 01:31:00 pm
TRUMP will have this thing wrapped up by the end of the month.

Only if Republicans want to be represented by a candidate who spews venom, hatred, bigotry, intolerance, who makes fun of physically handicapped people, and who doesn't like American military who were captured and imprisoned.

But enough about Cruz and Rubio.

Trolls.

Good news for both Bernie and TRUMP overall. ARG is a 'joke' pollster but the 'joke' pollsters were more accurate in Iowa than the 'respected' ones.
12  General Politics / Individual Politics / Re: Opinion of the Flying Spaghetti Monster? on: February 04, 2016, 07:30:12 am

Well I'd much rather watch a 1995 Simpsons episode than I would a 2015 episode.
13  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential General Election Polls / Re: VA-Roanoke: Sanders mops the floor with GOPers, Clinton only ties Rubio/Cruz on: February 04, 2016, 07:27:22 am
So much for Bernie not having a chance in the general.
29% don't even have an opinion on him.

No opinion or 'mixed', even. The numbers for Hillary and TRUMP are 13% and 15% respectively, which seem high for such household names.
14  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: Why is everyone going crazy for Rubio? on: February 04, 2016, 03:28:25 am
he's a vile individual

What an unusual trait for a politician!
15  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: Post Iowa National poll shows TRUMP in collapse only +4 nationally! A sign? on: February 03, 2016, 10:21:21 pm
PPP is a respected pollster and I agree that this is a sign of his collapse.

PPP is a respected pollster and they cocked it up in Iowa.
16  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Primary Election Polls / Re: BREAKING: Trump Lead Dropping Nationally (PPP) on: February 03, 2016, 09:42:42 pm
Remember that the supposedly sh**te pollsters were more accurate in Iowa than respected ones such as PPP and Selzer.

Still, this still shows almost 6 in 10 supporting the anti-establishment trio of TRUMP/Cruz/Carson...
17  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: "Moderate" Rubio attacks Obama for speaking at a mosque on: February 03, 2016, 07:31:16 pm
It's often the case that politicians made out to be all reasonable and cuddly and moderate are in fact the nastiest. Michael Heseltine is another case in point.
18  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: SANTORUM FOR RUBIO on: February 03, 2016, 07:27:26 pm
Well, he can associate with him.
19  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: "Moderate" Rubio attacks Obama for speaking at a mosque on: February 03, 2016, 07:26:42 pm
Yet Trump was just on Fox saying a President shouldn't be going to a mosque....LOL k.

Except that Rubio is portrayed to be some kind of reasonable candidate.

Haha.

How on earth do two-thirds have an unfavorable view of Gilmore? Presumably they just saw the name and thought "never heard of him but he's a politician so he's probably bad".
22  General Politics / International General Discussion / Re: UK General Discussion: Corbyn vs the Pigdiddler on: February 03, 2016, 10:12:49 am
I literally only just realised that PCC elections are taking place in May, which means I'm probably about the 44th person in the entire country to do so. They should get slightly more than a 12% (or whatever it was last time) turnout at least. Still, it is going to be a pretty jam-packed couple of months electorally: the usual locals, the PPCs, the London Mayoral and Assembly, Scotland, Wales and Norn Iron and then a likely June EU referendum.
23  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: Rand Paul suspending his campaign to focus on re-election to the Senate on: February 03, 2016, 10:05:34 am
Rand is the standard bearer of a cause (libertarianism) so he'll likely hang around in elected office for as long as possible a la Ted Kennedy and Strom Thurmond.
24  Other Elections - Analysis and Discussion / International Elections / Re: International gender voting patterns on: February 03, 2016, 10:03:28 am
Quite interested at how the gender gap manifests itself in different political cultures. I know in the UK women tended to be more conservative than men in the 50's but shifted left over time so now are more likely to vote LAbour. How is this different in other countries? (especially developing ones)

Some data I once saw showed a big gender gap in the 1959 general election; women voted Tory by something like 55-42 while men voted Labour by about 51-47. Here is the MORI data since October 1974: https://www.ipsos-mori.com/researchpublications/researcharchive/101/How-Britain-Voted-Since-October-1974.aspx?view=wide
25  General Politics / International General Discussion / Re: UK MPs - 2015 Parliament on: February 03, 2016, 07:25:38 am
Paul Farrelly (Labour - Newcastle-under-Lyme)

An ex-journalist, he has been the MP here since 2001. Came pretty close to losing last year; probably did well to hold on in fact, given the patterns across the Midlands (outside of the big cities) in general.
