Get rid of Superdelegates and the Caucus system.

Seems logical by itself but also a fair compromise. Caucuses benefit the activists and super delegates benefit the establishment.

The electorate will continue to get more racially diverse and older as the last of the Silent Generation is replaced by the smaller and more diverse Z people.

Who is the tipping point voter in Louisiana's Senate/House?

IMHO - a pragmatic (not "ideological") conservative Republican. People like John Alario (now, As Republican) himself, or Ronnie Johns in Senate,  or Bryan Adams or Clay Schexnayder in House are all close to such voter. THE most conservative Democrats, like Francis Thompson or John Milkovich in Senate, or Mike Danahay in House are, probably, also close enough...

So, basically Kasich's agenda is the most left-wing thing Edwards and Dardenne can get passed?

IMHO - yes. Of course - there is some state specific, but - generally so.

Iowa is entitled to 6.6 representatives in two districts.

Because the districts will be close to 3.0 representatives, they will have be fairly equal in population. The obvious split is between east and west, and Des Moines will have to be in the western district. Coming from the east, I got to Polk County and had sufficient population for both districts. I played around moving Marshall, Jasper, and Marion to the western district, based on their proximity to Des Moines, but that would have made a more U-shaped eastern district.

The final map places all of I-35 in the western district, assuming a slightly stronger community of interest with Des Moines based on the transportation link. It also results in the denser eastern part of the state having the slightly higher population.

1901 - Eastern Iowa - 3.4 representatives.

1902 - Western Iowa - 3.2 representatives.

He's not, but he draws a lot of his support from those who supported Ron Paul in 2012.

Absolutely true. I was a Ron Paul supporter, but ended up being a Romney supporter. Now, I am a TRUMP supporter. True libertarian, that's my name.

No; Trump is farther to the left economically than he is socially.

Exactly, but not too far left.
As you can see from my score which I got answering the questions in the way TRUMP would, he is clearly a moderate (slightly left economically and slightly right socially).

The Religious Right whether it be Jewish Right, Christian Right or Muslim Right is dangerous in terms of their rhetoric and substance

I'm just asking the left to critically question their own before dealing with folks on the right. I've personally met said leader and he has nothing but love for all people groups.


So you're saying its ok to not vet Obama or any left of center leader while being ok to dig into any center-right candidate's life and those who endorse him?

I just have two words. Jeremiah Wright.

I think they're both disgusting HP's, but Jeremiah Wright didn't endorse Cruz, this guy did, and unlike President Obama, Cruz is defending him.

Jeremiah Wright endorsed Obama and didn't Obama embrace his pastor and his comments about "America's chickens have come home to roost"

I was there and heard the sermon when these words were uttered. Another question I'd like to ask the left is would the nation of Israel exist without the tragedy of the holocaust? If you look at his comments from that context then you may see his perspective.

With Obama it was a question mark, if he would govern with Wright's ideology or would it have an influence but with Cruz we know he will govern with that ideology. There is still conservative right that thinks Obama is a closest Muslim.

Of course, that's ludicrous to a post-reformation, post-enlightenment, secular mind, and as an peace-loving, hippy-dippy liberal atheist I'm delighted to live in a world without those people, but I think the psychology of those people is a little more complicated than we understand it - i.e., they weren't just villains or psychos.

I love this line. It is critical to any historical analysis to refrain from projecting modern presumptions onto a previous time period for precisely that reason. If 99% of the people are crazy in a certain year, it kind of negates impact of the meaning of the word crazy and the point of even bringing it up that they were so, unless it is to make a point about progress or something.
