Yes, but clearly suburban republicans are much more winnable. /s

Just because these people are afraid of losing healthcare doesn't mean that they will not vote for Trump again.

It's not as if the Secret Service will seize his Twitter account, but they will require him to use a secure device and tweeting would be a huge no no. He could do it anyway, but it would open up the device to possible hackers and that of course would be dangerous to national security.

The wall wouldn't help him, because it would keep Hispanic turnout up and do nothing to gain college educated whites back. With that said, if third parties receive less of the vote in 2020, Trump probably does worse in California.

Trump is the corrupt grifter that Clinton was falsely made out to be.

I doubt a secession effort would/will be successful. Even if voters approve it (what I question), congress would never allow the departure of the state. Because if they do, it could be the end of the union as we know it. It would help efforts in other states to become an independent country, most notably TX.

I'm also still confidant that secession would do more harm than good for CA. Sure, the Trumpster is a serious concern, but he won't be president forever.

I don't know. Is there really anything that would stop Trump from refusing to accept an election result or recognize term limits? I could see him ignoring both of those things based on his arrogance.
81  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: California independence updates on: December 25, 2016, 11:18:05 pm
Uh... even in California, this would lose 70%-30%. It might even provide a rally round the flag effect for Trump in 2020 and get him to 40% in the state.

Nothing would get Trump 40% of the vote in California. Just because people might vote against a secession effort doesn't mean they suddenly become Trump fanatics.

One thing that got completely ignored during this election is the fact that there was no GOP senate candidate running in California. Unfortunately, they adopted that nonsensical LA system where the top two vote getters are put on the general ballot.

Imagine how many republicans stayed home because they knew there was absolutely no point in showing up. Trump wasn't going to win the state, and they had no Republican candidate to vote for in the senate. So why bother?

I guarantee that this cost Trump at least 5 percentage points.

That doesn't really add up. He over performed Romney in the most rural, Republican areas of the state and when you go further down ballot, plenty of Republican incumbents survived despite Trump tanking in their districts. That doesn't suggest that Republican turnout was down enough to cost Trump 5%.

Please tell me this is a joke. I don't expect much from Trump, but this is too much, even for him. This has to be some sort of prank.



Another such story: Daily Caller reports Bob Corker's shortness was a "key factor" in Trump not picking him.

Apparently it is possible for Trump to be even more insane than anyone could have imagined.

The article doesn't say anything about how that person voted. We don't know who he supported.
Who said he was a Clinton supporter? We're talking about how you and your ilk spread fear, terror, violence, hate and lies. Who said anything about the actual arsonist? He's probably just some pissed off ex-parishioner.

You can never tell with the Trump Supporters, since everything that occurs is supposedly a partisan plot. I haven't committed any acts of violence against anyone nor has anyone that I know, so that's a bizarre accusation.
Judging by how you act here, I'd say that this is probably a lie.

That's an incredibly loaded accusation that goes far over the line. We'll see how the moderators feel about it.
You sound like our President-elect! Did you secretly vote for him? It's ok if you did. It's a free country.

No, I voted for Clinton. Afterwards Clinton and Kaine picked me up in a limo so we could go out and attack Trump supporters at other polling places.

89  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: Will President Obama pardon Mumia? on: December 22, 2016, 05:39:01 pm
No. Why would he? It's far more likely that Trump will pardon Dylann Roof for being railroaded by ultra liberal social justice warriors (not likely, but you never know what crazy ideas extremists will get).
90  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: Trump: We need more nukes on: December 22, 2016, 12:42:02 pm
Is there any doubt that he will launch a nuclear attack at some point? The question isn't if, but when.
91  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: Ohio strips municipalities of minimum wage increases, worker protections on: December 22, 2016, 11:40:49 am
This is not going to do anything to help all those working class voters who voted for Trump. Don't ever buy the idea that Republicans are for the working class. It's not true.
92  General Politics / Political Geography & Demographics / Re: Likely next US districts after 2020 on: December 21, 2016, 09:26:48 pm
Using the words "stolen" and "thieves" when it comes to how these districts are drawn is really silly. The districts belong to the voters as a whole and are not owned by the parties. Besides, you can't steal something that amounts to invisible lines that can't even be seen off of paper.
93  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: EDIT: Republicans in NCGA now refuse to take up bill to repeal HB2 on: December 21, 2016, 09:15:45 pm
Remind me again who is too focused on social issues?
94  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2020 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: USAT/Suffolk Democratic Primary Poll: Most want someone entirely new on: December 21, 2016, 05:21:53 pm
Oh, for God's sake, I didn't attack anyone. My point was that looks are irrelevant when it comes to elections (except maybe in Trump world). Don't get it twisted.
95  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2020 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: USAT/Suffolk Democratic Primary Poll: Most want someone entirely new on: December 21, 2016, 04:18:58 pm
Someone entirely new:



Flipping your hair and trying to be cute doesn't make for a good candidate. Besides that she's not even good material for the Democratic nomination.
96  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2020 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: Duckworth 2020? on: December 21, 2016, 03:11:11 pm
Would running a woman who is part Asian be a problem for the great Midwest? Not running a white man would be a slap in the face and trying to force a minority down their throats. /sarc
97  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: Are you going to watch Trump's Inaugural Address? on: December 21, 2016, 01:30:57 pm
No. There's no obligation to watch it.
98  Other Elections - Analysis and Discussion / Gubernatorial/Statewide Elections / Re: North Carolina G.O.P. Moves to Curb Power of New Democratic Governor on: December 20, 2016, 10:33:12 pm
Clinton won some incredibly wealthy areas and that is where some of the biggest swings were. Trump had big swings in poorer areas. Clinton won the 6th largest economy in the world. Who are really the makers? I don't think it's Trump Country, which gets more back from the federal government than it puts in.
99  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: Good News: MTV came up with some New Year's Resolutions for white men (video) on: December 20, 2016, 09:31:52 pm
Political correctness is ok for some, but not others. Had this been a video about New Year's Resolutions for blacks, the response here would have been totally different.

This is still a free country, so people are going to state opinions that will not be liked by Trump or his supporters. With control comes criticism.
