Congratulations to all those who are no doubt delighted: Putin shills, PRC bots, trots, fascists, Nazis, reprobates, people who plan on being dead in the next year, anti-Semites etc

This.

Bremain (R)

I'm tired of campaigns based on xenophobia and lies - and that seems to be all that the Brexit folks can come up with.  I also think that Brexit would give aid and comfort to Scottish nationalists and violates the spirit of the effort to keep the UK itself together.

Even if he got 15%, which would be an epic success for him, he wouldn't win any states (see Perot).  I guess the question is - if he won a state, which would be the first one?  My best guess would be Utah.

As bad as this result is, I'm even more depressed that it is driven by younger people.  At least in the US, the far-right anti-immigrant sentiment is coming mainly from olds.

Cruz and Kasich do better among younger voters, who are more anti-Trump than older Republicans. Trump's best age group is baby boomers and middle-aged (45-70). Gives me hope for the future, at least...

Rubio was dominant among young Republicans when he was running, and they seem to have split between Cruz and Kasich since then.

Agreed.  I know hundreds of younger Republicans.  I can count on one hand the number that supported Trump in the primary.  I don't know more than six or seven who have said they'll vote for Trump if he's the nominee.  That number will go up once he's actually the nominee, but it ain't going to be pretty.

Meanwhile, Rubio had North Korea levels of support among these folks.

I love how we need to get the feds out of education by having the federal government intervene to stop a set of standards that was created by a consortium of leaders from states and voluntarily adopted in decisions made by states.

I suspect Cruz will pull ahead of Kasich in the next few minutes but Kasich does have some votes out in Wayne and Washtenaw.

Are they concerned about losing the election and damaging the party brand as they say, or are they more afraid of losing control of the party for at least 8 years?

We're afraid of what will happen to the country if he has 8 years.
21  Forum Community / Forum Community / Re: Who do your friends/acquaintances support? on: March 05, 2016, 01:48:46 am
Mostly Rubio & Kasich

The distribution of Rubio support is hilarious! Love it. Looking forward to Davidson.

Rich, White parts of interior Memphis.  What's funny about that?  Isn't that to be expected?

What's really funny is that it overlaps almost perfectly with Sanders' support.

Those are the only precincts with non-negligible numbers of white voters casting Democratic primary ballots.

Here's Shelby - should have Davidson shortly.
Democrats

Republicans
24  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: The Delegate Fight: 2016 on: March 02, 2016, 09:48:44 pm
    • Tennessee.  CD results are still incomplete, especially in CD 9 (Memphis).  I've provisionally divided the delegates 2 for Trump and 1 for Cruz, but it's a tight 3-way race in Shelby County overall, so who knows.

    This is correct - looking at the unofficial precinct results, its:
    Trump: 32.2%
    Cruz: 27.6%
    Rubio: 23.8%
    Kasich: 7.3%
    Carson: 6.5%

    As bad as this is, there is more substance here than in several of my party's debates.
