76  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: Bernie in OK and WV on: July 27, 2017, 10:45:47 pm
No, no, no and another no. Something like half of his primary voters said they would vote for Trump in the general, which doesn't translate into winning a county.

Citation needed

Clearly you didn't pay much attention to the CNN exit polls.

It's not stupid, it's something that could help turnout. As we saw in 2016, black turnout dropped with Obama on the ballot and in critical states. It's no different than picking a running mate based on regional appeal. Democrats are not going to lose just because a non-white person is on the ballot.

This will create tons of jobs in Ohio, Michigan, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin. Trump hates identity politics and that is why he won!

California passed a law that requires parents to vaccinate their children as a requirement to enroll in public school, which is probably the most effective sort of law to keep outbreaks down.

Political reform is needed and has been needed for a long time.
82  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: Senators Collins and Reed on the hot mic. on: July 25, 2017, 03:04:59 pm
Anyone who has actually seen Farenthold knows that Collins was telling the truth. Besides, he came for her first and she merely responded.

And he is qualified how? Can anyone give any reasons why he is qualified?
he is a us citizen over the age of 35 that only things you need be qualified I didnt hear democrats bitching about al franken and I considered him qualified.

The age to run for Senate is 30, not 35. There is a differences between legal requirements and qualifications. As we have seen with Trump, qualifications and experience do matter.

Arizona is full of people who moved from somewhere else and that includes lots of people who moved from one part of the state to another. Moving to another district is hardly as bad as enthusiastically supporting a health care bill that would take insurance from millions, so I think that will be the prevailing issue.

It's a good thing that he has considerable financial resources to fight this. He'll be just fine.
86  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: Trump to hold campaign rally next week in Ohio on: July 18, 2017, 09:22:35 pm
It's not even close to campaigning season.
87  Other Elections - Analysis and Discussion / Congressional Elections / Re: Kid Rock Running for Michigan Senate Seat on: July 16, 2017, 12:38:39 pm
If anyone actually thinks he will win, they have lost their minds. Trump's win was a plurality, which means that his win wasn't exactly impressive or enough to claim that Michigan is going to be West Virginia. And how the hell is he blue collar? Being a musician is far from blue collar. With that being said, he will lose because he's a complete joke and it's likely to be a horrible cycle for Republicans.

And let's remember, that there is a primary and he will be facing a credible challenger who he has little chance of defeating.
88  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: Fox News host: "Hillary Clinton would sell her daughter to be President" on: July 15, 2017, 10:22:00 pm
What is true is that Trump would put his son in serious legal trouble to become President.
89  Other Elections - Analysis and Discussion / Congressional Elections / Re: Kid Rock Running for Michigan Senate Seat on: July 12, 2017, 11:36:39 pm
Kid Rock's chances of winning Michigan are slim to none. Michigan isn't a Republican state, nor even a particularly purple state. Voter turnout was down in 2016, especially among African Americans, in Michigan, but also among low-income White voters who opted to abstain or vote third party instead of vote for Clinton. In 2012, Stabenow defeated a bigoted GOP rival quite decisively. Kid Rock is just a joke.

But maybe Trump can campaign for him. You know, do a tour through Michigan, maybe rock out together about "bad hombres" and grabbing women by the pu**y.
Of course there are excuses for Hillary losing.

How are these excuses? They're literally just a list of the changes in voter demographics that shifted it from a sizable Obama win to a very narrow Trump win.

Don't rain on their parade. They think Michigan is Idaho now.

Yeah, he's not going to win or even come close to it. This person is a good fit for the Republican primary electorate, but a horrible fit for the general election electorate. Even when you consider his primary performance, his worst areas were in the areas where the bulk of the vote is.
91  Other Elections - Analysis and Discussion / Congressional Elections / Re: Kid Rock Running for Michigan Senate Seat on: July 12, 2017, 08:05:21 pm
Trump got a plurality in Michigan which was lower raw percentage wise than what George W. Bush got, plus there was a big third party factor last year.
92  Other Elections - Analysis and Discussion / Congressional Elections / Re: Kid Rock Running for Michigan Senate Seat on: July 12, 2017, 05:48:23 pm
Reading Twitter, it seems like most people believe he's just trying to sell t-shirts and isn't actually running. Whatever this is, it's silly.
93  Other Elections - Analysis and Discussion / Congressional Elections / Re: Kid Rock Running for Michigan Senate Seat on: July 12, 2017, 05:21:48 pm
And he is qualified how? Can anyone give any reasons why he is qualified?

He's a U.S. citizen who is over 30 and resides in the State of Michigan?

Those are the legal requirements. I'm talking about qualifications to serve in the United States Senate. Know the difference between legal requirements and qualifications.

Was Al Franken really qualified?  No one cares about that anymore, unfortunately.
He was an activist for a lot of years before he even ran for office. Kid Rock is some B-list musicians who can't even decide what genre he is in who voiced a few political opinions here and there.

He is an American, he is a taxpayer, and he doesn't like the current state of American politics. He has every right to run for office than a regular, traditional politician.

He's an American. Qualification doesn't really matter any more. If you are a citizen, and want to change something, why not run? It's his country. His state.

Anybody can run, but not everyone is qualified to serve. This isn't a game, it's real life.

In a more crowded field, an 80 year old failed candidate is not going to do well in the primary anyway, but the impropriety certainly doesn't help matters.

The only thing Hillary Rodham Clinton is rising to is becoming more senile each and every day.
You really are an idiot, aren't you...

No, I just enjoy making Hillary Clinton feel miserable.

She doesn't read this board. If you like making someone you don't know miserable, then you are the miserable one. Hillary Clinton doesn't know you and doesn't care about you. Sorry.

So it appears that Democrats are not finished as some people would like to think.

If we want to question mental states, we need to question those who think about Clinton so much that they make mistakes like this. Second, the so-called President can't even remember where his vehicle is, which seems pretty senile to me. Leave Hillary alone.
