Perry is doing better here than he ever did in either of his presidential campaigns.

Holy ****, I actually forgot he was a candidate in this election.

and the decline of urban America is mostly due to.....

anyway....I'm pretty sure the main thing killing rural America is that we need fewer and fewer people to make food, and I don't understand why this is supposed to be a bad thing.  We make more food than ever and do it with fewer people, this is a good thing.  City folks strange romanticism with "the family farm" is ignorant.  Farming sucks, just like factory work.  Yes, I understand those in the ivory towers think poor people love these gigs, and certainly some do....but the other 95% of us are smart enough to know hard and dangerous work when we see it.  There are not enough jobs for every dumb person to have anymore, at least not with our current culture.  Maybe if "full time" was 20 (or whatever, something well under 40) hours a week and there was a basic minimum income for everybody there would be plenty of jobs for all our dumbs that wanted to work, but that's not how it is.  This problem is only going to get worse and needs to be addressed sooner than later.  Trump going protectionist isn't going to help.  It might temporarily give a few more people jobs, but it's going to make everything cost so much more that it won't matter at all.
I think some of you are missing the point of the article that the people in these small towns are in fact trying to take local responsibility and take control of their own destinies, and the big telecom companies and former Town of Swampscott Select Board member Charlie Baker aren't letting them.
sorry.  That's bad, I disapprove.  States should give cities and counties more leeway and freedom.  On the other hand, states should let cities rot on the vine when the funk up too.  You can't do one without the other.  A private business and a state govt conspiring to restrict the liberty of a city is bad.

Better then Palladino, but still no chances. I would prefer some moderate (on social issues - first, but - with some fiscal conservative streak) county executive as candidate.
Tom Allon/Kathleen Jimino would be a very electable ticket. Jimino won in 2013 after Obama beat Romney in 2012 by double digits. The last Democrat to lose her county, besides Clinton, was Dukakis.

they are so established and strong over here that they never fear for any kind of backlash.

and it won't cost them any votes they would get otherwise....the FP is a known metric and its content isn't veiled.

If I could Vote, in certain Circumstances (like 2015) I would maybe give my Vote to them (for the simple reason that I value Immigration and National Identity more than other currently popular topics, even though I am also a Migrant in Austria). But they always make these retarded decisions that in the end make me think that they could very well be a Joke.

Nate Bronze is not a trustworthy source.

And in addition, they had the supposedly most accurate poll of 2016 and whilst one swallow does not make a summer, it seriously can't be that wrong.

And, for all you now it might be 3% off in the other direction, and he may nearly have 60%.

The salt is strong with this one

Face it, nobody likes your candidate

He has 56% approval, higher than when Reagan entered office, and the same as Clinton and George W. Bush had when they entered office.

So yes, most Americans like Trump, get over it.

People are lying to the pollsters as Trump said, Rasmussen is clearly rigging its polls

You can't cheer on Obama having 60% in a Rasmussen poll, and then call it fake the following week.

If you consider it rigged, then fine I'll give you that. Trump's popularity is probably much higher.
The man lost the popular vote by 3 million 40% is more likely than 56% also unlike Trump multiple polls say the same about Obama's popularity while Rasmussen stick outs like a sore thumb with Trump

There aren't enough choices.

Chris Murphy, the youngest Democratic Senator, is 43 now, so he wouldn't make the cut in 2020.

I'm unaware of any sitting Governor under 45 in 2020.

2018 won't help as much since Democrats are defending a lot of seats, so opportunities for newcomers are limited.
