2  Other Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2014 Gubernatorial Election Polls / Re: OH-PPP - Kasich is tied with FitzGerald on: April 23, 2014, 04:00:02 pm
Yeah, we should've run a serious candidate here...
For the last time, Todd Portune was never a serious candidate. He lacked support from the state party and Chris Redfern rightfully wanted nothing to do with him, lacked name ID and cash, is to the right of FitzGerald, had serious back problems and would have never managed to do the strong grassroots campaigning that FitzGerald has done, blatantly attacked the state party and FitzGerald on a number of occasions and was too ignorant to admit that FitzGerald already had the African American base locked, couldn't even find a running mate until the final week before signatures were needed, used other potential running mates for him from Cuyahoga County as "fear mongering" against FitzGerald, and struggled to get anybody behind him (IIRC, 7 people showed up to an event during the Portune Palooza in January). If Portune was the nominee, the ODP may as well just should have endorsed Anita Rios because Portune would just govern the same way as Kasich has on tax policy favoring the rich and taxing the middle class and seniors with aggression or, at best, neutrality on issues pertaining to gays, women, African Americans etc. Portune during his whole charade cared more about making the Ohio Democratic Party dysfunctional, unorganized and set his sights on having no clear frontrunner for the nomination and really could have cared less about attacking Kasich's policies which is the main, effective strategy needed to win this race.

If you ask me, FitzGerald is a huge upgrade from Strickland and heck, Strickland himself agrees with that statement. He stated he realizes the need for newer, more progressive candidates that can appeal to younger voters and get the high turnout from our county that Strickland could never get. He won't be able to match Strickland's 2010 numbers in SE Ohio (FitzGerald may have already hurt his chances by coming out in favor of comprehensive gun control), but he can make those votes up in Cuyahoga and Montgomery Counties, will obviously do well elsewhere up North, and Hamilton County will be in play.

LoL, I was trolling you (again).

I'm no economist, but couldn't deflation be cured by printing more money?

Yes, it's way easier to cure deflation. That's why I think deflation s better than hyperinflation, but I don't think it's "waaaay better" like most of the people here.

The only thing I'm seeing here is apologism of a dictature, which usually isn't allowed or tolerated here.

Yeah, this guy is basically saying: "our dictature wasn't that bad. Conservative christians and obedient people had nothing to fear about" which is laughable, sad and dangerous at the same time.

Mmmm.. Yes, I have political ambitions. I've been undecided on the issue until I realized I really enjoy talking to people, campaigning... Maybe in 4 or 5 years you'll be talking to perennial candidate Julio Tongue

In the end, Daschle played the defeatist and has not improved a little bit. All Heil to our new Fuhrer Dan Quayle!


I can say there are many toss-up states that could go either way right now. But we are talking about states that were sure bets for one of the parties before the 2000 campaign.

Make your bets if you want to: which states will Quayle and Daschle win? What about Senate annd Gubernatorial races?

Didn't the Yes numbers start moving upwards long before that all happened?

Yes, if Crimea has had any effect, it's been negative fror the Scottish nationalists. In Catalonia, Artur Mas has tried to distance the situation in Crimea and Catalonia because he knows that it doesn't help him.

People in the EU hate Putin, I don't see Crimeans joining Russia helping the Scottish and Catalonian cause.

14  Other Elections - Analysis and Discussion / Congressional Elections / Re: James Lankford (R OK-5) to run for Tom Coburn's Senate Seat on: April 20, 2014, 06:22:30 pm
Guys, you could never hold elected office in your life and still be part of the "Establishment." It's all about who you're cozy with. The point (and I'm not agreeing or disagreeing because I know next to nothing about Lankford) is that he's been close to the House leaders who are generally regarded as Establishment forces.

Thank you. It's really not that hard to see.

Yes, someone had to say it.

I'd like to start the Election night on Thursday, because after the next weekend, I'll be very busy. If I could start on Wednesday, that'd be great!

Thank you for your interest in the game... And don't forget that I give some extra points for those who post first.

Oy, don't rush us!!!!



If you haven't read it, I will release polls for 10 states, and each of you can choose 5. Or better, the first one to choose can choose 6, so 11 will be released Smiley

October 30th-October 7th - Last round begins now
__________________________________________________



-Final days of campaign... and final Senate polls to be released this week!!

-Most expensive presidential election of the History!

-Quayle against death penalty (for almost every case). Will that hurt him among the conservative base? Will it help among moderates, liberals and democrats...? We will only know by election day...

-Quayle's still nice on the trail... But he may be the most lonely Presidential candidate in decades!!

-Quayle wins the 2nd Presidential debate, but people believe both were OK. Dan Quayle looks more Presidential and almost as likeable as Daschle now.

-Americans starting to like Lincoln now, find her way more likeable than Powell. Still, Powell looks more VP material, but not by much, as they continue to think Powell is too lazy to be VP.

-Daschle still behind Quayle in polls.

-Quayle, the most liked candidate ever? Smashes Lincoln, Powell and Daschle on fav/unfav poll. Will that translate into votes?

-Digging for meteorites two weeks before election day, the ultimate campaign strategy? Americans liked the idea: most of them would like to do so. But... are they voting for a meteorite digger? Let's just wait and see.

-Panning for gold not as popular as digging for meteorites... Skepticism about finding gold may be the reason.

-The meteorite digger runs the NYC marathon. Incredible! Could be the fastest VP since John Tyler...
