Someone actually printed off a Wikipedia article as part of a handout? Okay.

Abstentions and/or blank ballots do not count as votes, but that would be an easy excuse to avoid even taking up a vote in Congress on statehood.
78  Other Elections - Analysis and Discussion / Gubernatorial/Statewide Elections / Re: Puerto Rico status referendum - June 11 on: June 11, 2017, 03:23:46 pm
Why is statehood even being considered given their financial situation?

Part of getting tackling that financial situation involves becoming a state.

Ossoff 52-48
80  Other Elections - Analysis and Discussion / Congressional Elections / Re: GA-6 Special election discussion thread on: June 09, 2017, 11:53:27 pm
There are two polls this week showing Ossoff leading, one of which had Handel leading right after the primary. Ossoff is likely to win at this point.

It's worth noting that the Gwinnett County portion did not vote for Trump, so most of the Republican strength is reliant on Forsyth County. A good registration effort in Gwinnett would erode some of that strength.

If I had to guess, there won't be a vote dump until around 1 am EST. The votes have to be driven into the county elections office in Norwalk, which is almost to the Orange County line. Los Angeles County is always slow in part to that.

Probably are best described as fiscal conservatives. Definitely not evangelical, at least not by a large percentage.

Those results are from the county's website and they are mail votes, because zero precincts are shown to be reporting. https://www.lavote.net/election-results#year=2017&election=3744

Anyone else get an Obama-esque vibe from the way Ossoff speaks?? It's very similar to Obama's speaking style, re the cadence and rhythm.

I noticed that, too.

"I don't support a livable wage."

Why would you say that?

What? Did someone actually say those exact words?
Handel said that.

Karen Handel is so obnoxious. I think I've heard Nancy Pelosi's name at least a dozen times.

And could she stop using "liberal" as an insult. You are supposed to represent all your voters lady. Name calling and divisiveness is not very becoming despite who the President is.

There's nothing wrong with using "liberal" as an insult.

Interesting response from a "progressive". Sounds more like a right-wing response than one from a progressive.

Given how the district voted, it sounds like she's representing the will of of the voters just fine and she probably knows this.

Considering that an evenly divided district and she's not well liked, she can't really afford to alienate any voters. Get real.
89  Other Elections - Analysis and Discussion / Congressional Elections / Re: GA-6 Special election discussion thread on: June 04, 2017, 09:26:33 pm
Handel seems to be calling herself Johnny, while considering Ossoff to be the golden fiddle. It's supposed to be clever, but it's really muddled and confusing.
90  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: Democrats want Hillary to leave the spotlight on: June 04, 2017, 08:55:39 pm
Here is a part of the article that no one seems to want to quote

Quote
Longtime aides and advisers say she will not run for public office again, and that she feels liberated to finally speak her mind.

There is no strategy for her to run again, yet people are insisting that she's plotting some big 2020 campaign.

If you can't say something nice, don't say anything at all. It's not exactly a secret that Sanders is difficult to work with and you don't get endorsements when you are a difficult person. Just because they both share some of the same views doesn't mean that they are political allies.
92  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: Single payer support in CA falls to 43% when pollsters bring up taxation on: June 04, 2017, 08:42:38 pm
The question was asked both ways, so it seems quite fair. What is clear is that a single payer system is popular, until you look at how it will be paid for.
93  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2020 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: Slate: "Will We Ever Have a Woman as President?" (Its Conclusion: Unlikely) on: June 04, 2017, 08:36:54 pm
There are plenty of people of both genders who wouldn't vote for a woman for President and it was likely a factor in 2016. In 2008, a woman was on the ticket (only for VP) and there were some sharp swings in the Midwest. Granted, there were other factors then, but I have to wonder if Palin's presence on the Republican ticket didn't have put off some voters because of her gender. Of course, she was a poor VP choice, but it's worth debating if gender played a role in some areas that swung.
94  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: Democrats want Hillary to leave the spotlight on: June 04, 2017, 08:19:27 pm
What I think is that Trump should leave the spotlight. His approval is very low, yet he refuses to step down and go back to being a private citizen.
95  Other Elections - Analysis and Discussion / Congressional Elections / Re: Could Dave Reichert finally be defeated in 2018? on: June 04, 2017, 03:41:16 pm
Any Republican in a Clinton district is at risk to some extent.

Coming from a Republican pollster, that's not really a strong result for Pearce. New Mexico will be a Democratic gain.
97  Other Elections - Analysis and Discussion / Congressional Elections / Re: WI-01: Ryan to face credible Democratic opponent (WSJ) on: June 04, 2017, 01:19:25 pm
Ryan could lose in a wave, because that seat is not 100% safe.
98  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: Hillary blames DNC for loss, credits Obama's looks for breaking racial barrier ! on: June 03, 2017, 02:17:57 pm
The people who hate Hillary and are tired of hearing about her are always the first to comment on what she says. At least she actually acknowledges that she lost, unlike Bernie Sanders and she isn't claiming massive voter fraud like Trump.
99  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: Kellyanne Conway buys DC house only 4 months after inauguration on: June 02, 2017, 05:09:52 pm
Winning or not, managing the campaign of Trump is hardly an achievement to be proud of.
