1  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / Presidential Election Trends / Re: Iowa without "first-caucus-state" status on: Today at 06:04:51 pm
I don't see how the primary timing would effect general elections.
The one thing I can see is that parties give more attention to the early states (e.g. NH/IA), so whoever does well there can set up a lot of infrastructure in the state.

Although, South Carolina isn't competitive.....

I like how so many of us can come together and agree that the forum is terrible at discussing religion, regardless of what sort of discussion it is that we'd prefer.
In this forum's defence, I think most places are bad at discussing religion.

Freedom Site, obviously. Anyone who votes otherwise ought to be banned.

Probably not much more than a heavy storm.

No

If he does it has to be early. I don't like his chances.

I won't go quite as far as saying he's The Worst, but my opinion of him ain't high.

Newspoll says 51-49.

Get off the drugs.

I'd be surprised if they hold Campbelltown unless they have a strong night, but the other two don't really shock.

Anyone who's paying attention would realise that the swings were gonna vary big time depending on the region. I pointed that out like ages ago.

Thinking the 2PP vote will be the same as the federal election. Seat wise, probably the Coalition will do a few seats better than I expected a few weeks ago.
10  Forum Community / Forum Community / Re: Which posters are most/least like you ideologically? on: March 23, 2015, 05:36:04 am
Most: Most of the "mainline" left as a whole (Lief, Tony, Sawx, Matt, etc.)
Least: Naso, Cassius, NJ Christian, JCL. I'll also add Anton Kreitzer (on another mutual "forum" he has a "Don't Tread on Me" avatar under the name of gunlord3000, and he ain't a libertarian)
11  Forum Community / Forum Community / Re: Which continents have you been to? on: March 22, 2015, 06:07:24 am
Only Australia/Oceania at this stage. Want to go to Europe and North America soon-ish.

How accurate are Australian electorate polls?

Not especially.

If these are to be believed, the Labor party is doing better in regional communities than in some of the western suburbs.  Which might explain why the Coalition has such a good statewide result.  IIRC, Strathfield is normally a safe Labor area.  I don't know what to make of the Newtown poll, except that I hope it's inaccurate. Tongue
Only since Pauline Hanson, before that it was Liberal-leaning. Think it'll be a key marginal, though Labor will probably win it barring a poor night statewide.

There's been a....certain kind of backlash against the more pedestrian posters from the IRC types. You always see those guys with a significant HP vote now. I'm not one of those guys, mainly because calling someone a HP is a big call for me.
14  Other Elections - Analysis and Discussion / Congressional Elections / Re: Predict who will still be in the Senate in 25 years. on: March 20, 2015, 08:39:28 pm
Also it's a bit strange that most of the younger Senators seem to be male.

And Republicans destroying the talking point that they're all old men

Republican politicians are still disproportionately male, white, and Christian.


Do you not understand the meaning of disproportionate? One person doesn't disprove his post.

17  Forum Community / Forum Community / Re: Would you rather live in Norway or Tennessee? on: March 20, 2015, 01:06:39 am
lol @ people thinking 0C is cold.
I'd find it easier to deal with 32C than 0C. It doesn't get below 10C here generally.

That said, Norway > Tennessee.

Lib Dems are pathetic, but they aren't super corrupt or a KGB project designed to keep the rednecks in place.
19  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: Should the House of Representatives be increased in size? on: March 19, 2015, 09:34:44 pm
Yes. There's far too many people to each district in comparison to other countries.
20  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: Black Man Found Hanging from Tree in Mississippi on: March 19, 2015, 08:32:03 pm
If this was a white person this wouldn't be news.
Probably because 99% of white people hanging from trees would be suicide, not a potential homicide.

Schatz, Coons, Lankford, Scott, Murphy, Heinrich, Murkowski, Thune, Lee.

Sasse, Booker, Cotton, Cruz and Gillibrand seem a tad too ambitious to stay in the Senate, so they're out. That said if they don't run for President there's no reason why they shouldn't be in the Senate 25 years from now.
23  General Politics / International General Discussion / Re: Australia General Discussion on: March 19, 2015, 07:05:23 pm
Vale Fraser. Had no idea he was even unwell.

While I didn't like how he became PM, the Liberal party desperately need more people like him. RIP.

Is this 1925?

I'm sorry, IceSpear, but your demands to exclude parts of the democratic field from the polling are bad, bad, bad:

>Including Warren
>Including Cuomo
>Including Gillibrand
>Including "wouldn't vote" (what)
Why? At this stage, we should only include those who are at least thinking of running.
