Absentee ballots in MO HD-50:

Michela Skelton (D)   195   
Sara Walsh (R)   81

Woohoo!

Is absentee voting not a a regular thing in MO? This seems like very low numbers

When a prosecutor searches for things that are not related to the case, it means that they do not exist,I worked for the Albany District Attorney.

You should do some research into just how much authority Mueller has. He isnt bound by the limits of a "case".

Is this even related to Muller's investigation? Isn't New York State investigating financial crimes unrelated to the Russia investigation?

Regarding the state senate special election, do you all think the GOP money will stop flowing to Englund since Dhingra got 50%+? Despite the money advantage Dhingra still managed to get a decent margin, although it was less than HRC's in the district(which makes sense since Englund is a better fit).

What do you think the general will look like?

Just wondering, but is Clinton's 84.22% the highest percentage a presidential D has gotten in Seattle? What was it in 2008/2012?

2016 probably is the largest D margin though 84.22-8.44 (with write-ins, or 86.04-8.62 without).

To answer my own question: 2008 indeed saw a higher D % if including write-ins, but without 2016 stands king:
 
        Republican           Democratic           Third Parties
2016   8.44% 32,362   84.22% 323,126   7.34% 28,162
2012   13.74% 48,164   83.01% 290,963   3.25% 11,385
2008   13.81% 45,761   84.32% 279,441   1.87% 6,207
2004   17.87% 57,034   80.50% 256,974   1.63% 5,195

Wow, is crazy how far Republicans have fallen. Not even just in 2016 but since 2004.

Also from that poll, 49% of Trump supporters believe he won the popular vote.  40% believe Clinton won it.


And Trump voters wonder why everyone thinks theyre ignorant

*puts on MAGA hat* He did win the popular vote; the millions of votes by illegals don't count!

Remove L.A. and NYC and what's the popular vote? I'd say those areas are not culturally representative of most of America.

Neither is West Virginia nor Wyoming.

More than L.A. or NYC.

Ummm... you think the U.S. population more closely resembles Wyoming and West Virginia than New York and California? Literally what planet are you on?

Because criminal justice reform would benefit minorities. And Republicans don't care about minorities.

Interesting story
Quote
Today, the NY Times and others are running wild with the story that Natalia Veselnitskaya met with Donald Trump Jr, Paul Manafort, and Jared Kushner during the campaign.
 
The meeting took place in June 2016 when Veselnitskaya requested the meeting, claiming evidence of Russian collusion with Hillary Clinton and the DNC. After the meeting began, she changed the subject to adopting Russian children. After 20 minutes, Donald Trump Jr left the meeting.
 
While the mainstream media is focusing on the fact that the meeting took place with a Russian and insinuating that a 20 minute meeting constitutes collusion, burgeoning on racism, there is a deeper story.
 
Veselnitskaya was a Soros operative.
 
A spokesman for President Trump’s legal team stated “We have learned that the person who sought the meeting is associated with Fusion GPS, a firm which according to public reports, was retained by Democratic operatives to develop opposition research on the President and which commissioned the phony Steele dossier. "
 
While Fusion GPS refuses to name the "mysterious wealthy donor" who paid for the phony Steele dossier, numerous media reports have accused George Soros of backing the company.
 
Washington national security sources assess this meeting was likely another "dirty trick" attempt by Soros and Fusion GPS to create a false narrative of collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia.
 
Soros is well-known for his opposition to President Trump, and funds the international terrorist organization Antifa.
 
At this time, George Soros has not responded for comment on his backing of international terrorism.

Taddeo leads Rivas Logan 40-23 per this poll of SD-40.

Do you think Taddeo can win the general? I use to like her but she has continued to lose.

GOP Sen. Tells Trump: Investigation Is Not A Witch Hunt, No

Source: Talking Points Memo

June 15, 10am

Sen. John Thune (R-SD) defended the special counsel put in charge of the Justice Department’s investigation of Russian meddling in the 2016 on Thursday, disputing President Donald Trump’s claim earlier Thursday morning that he was the subject of an investigatory “witch hunt.”

GOP lately has been getting tired of Trump's sh!t

Most people are. You can only con people for so long. Lock him up.

When Trump loses in 2020, America needs to engage in full scale non stop cyber warfare against Russia and further sanctions till the country is brought to the brink.

Agreed.

When do congressional Republicans begin backing away from Trump? Mid 30s approval is low but what does it need to be in order for mainstream republicans to distance themselves? I'm not referring to moderates like Ros-Lehtinen or Comstock who are already distancing themselves.
