I think a lot of the blue on the western border would be republican on a 2012 map. Vermillion county is trending republican and flipped in 2012 to Romney. Also i love how uniformly republican the wealthy suburbs are I get so sick of the "republicans are poor white racist rednecks" thing.

LOL!!!!!!! Such a pathetic campaign and a pathetic man.

Remember when everyone flipped out because some posters dared to say a simple college education is a plus for presidential candidates? Roll Eyes Looks like he didn't have the mental capacity to see this through.
Okay for the final time what was Walker going to learn in his last semester that was so critical? Like regardless of if you love him or hate him what was it?

Rubio- Walker would be an idelogically consistent and geographically balanced ticket but Walker is probably too polarizing, Kasich makes more sense for a purely electoral standpoint
1704  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: Walker to drop out on: September 21, 2015, 03:38:46 pm
Where will his Iowa support go? Rubio?
1705  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: Most popular politician in each state on: September 21, 2015, 11:12:11 am
This is interesting. It seems there are some states that like both senators and the governor and other states where all are relatively unpopular or unknown.

Nah his whole reputation now is the anti-gay guy. He'd get massacered in the suburbs. Still have respect for partial birth abortion ban act, that redeems him in my eyes but regardless he would lose badly.

I'm about as Republican a person as you'll ever find, but if Donald Trump is the nominee, I'm probably going Libertarian.
Yep i wont vote for someone who says vaccines cause autism and opposes free trade.
1709  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: Do you get an insincere vibe from Ted Cruz? on: September 18, 2015, 02:16:58 pm
I think he is genuine in his beliefs but obviously uses his grandstanding tactics that he knows will fail.
1710  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: Are a lot of Republicans secretly (or not secretly) fiscally centrist to liberal? on: September 16, 2015, 10:52:39 pm
I think a lot of people don't have very well informed opinions on most of these issues enough to say whether or not they are fiscally conservative or liberal.
This in both parties on like 90% of issues

Most republicans are fiscal conservatives.

1713  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: Who was the biggest loser of the CNN debate? on: September 16, 2015, 10:31:58 pm
Kasich looked insane half the time.
1714  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: Who won the main CNN debate? on: September 16, 2015, 10:31:10 pm
I think Walker exceeded expectations. I think Bush fell flat as did Kasich. Rubio was in consistant. Trump probably won't go up or down. Carson seems so  but i was wrong about him last time. Christie was strong. Fiorina was impressive in first half not in second half. Paul was Paul. Cruz did decent. I'm sure the media will pick a winner and run with it but honestly I don't think any one candidate dominated.
1715  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: Is China our ally? on: September 16, 2015, 01:10:27 pm
No. They're important trading partners, but their expansionist efforts in the South China Sea are dangerous and they need to be kept at arm's length.
1716  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: Most popular politician in each state on: September 16, 2015, 01:09:36 pm
In Indiana Mitch Daniels is the most popular politician, despite people from out if state thinking its Evan Bayh. The man won downtown Indy in 2008. I would guess Coats and Donnely are both relatively anonymous and Pence is well known but polarizing.

People don't like Bayh? What about Lugar? People over 14 all still know that name
Bayh and Lugar are both still popular, just not as much as Daniels. Bayh is the patron saint of Indiana democrats, and Lugar is respected among all but disliked strongly by the conservative base.
1717  Other Elections - Analysis and Discussion / Gubernatorial/Statewide Elections / Re: How many Republican Governors will there be by 2017? on: September 15, 2015, 11:57:18 pm
I think Pence narrowly survives with presidential coattail es
1718  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: Will the GOP establishment eventually back Carson over Trump? on: September 15, 2015, 01:54:53 pm
Trump doesn't support free trade. GOP establishment will support anybody over Trump this is a dealbreaker issue for them and i'm honestly surprised the other candidates aren't attacking Trump on this.
1719  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / U.S. Presidential Election Results / Re: Wisconsin Trend by County: 1976-2012 on: September 15, 2015, 01:46:03 pm
Northern Indiana has not shifted left, at least not the rural areas. These are the people who elected Marlin Stutzman. I would guess that the average farmer (not including hobby farmers or organic etc ) are republican in these areas too. The misconception is that farmers make up a large percentage of the population when they simply don't even in rural counties. Except possibly the great plains but certainly not the cornbelt.

Who is the most popular statewide elected official in each state? Out of the governor and either senator. In Indiana it would have been Pence up until the religous freedom fiasco. Im not sure about now.

1723  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: Why does the far-right hate Mexicans? on: September 13, 2015, 12:22:02 pm
My post was obviously sarcastic. I think very few people hate mexicans for being mexicans or speaking spanish. I think its more the assumption (correct or incorrect) that immigrants are lowering wages and that the border is too permeable. Which are legitimate concerns. Another issue is that the melting pot model has been replaced with the salad bowl. In some ways this is good as we need to recognize the value that immigrants and their cultures can bring but at the same time there is understandable concern that our own culture will be diluted. Some people clearly are just xenophobic but I think you're dumbing down the issue where there are numerous different factors at play and a broad spectrum of opinions.

Why do the democrats want to take away guns and nationalize all businesses?

"I can't believe that no one voted D:>55% yet. When making this thread, I expected that option to be the one that recieved the most votes, but so far I'm wrong."

I just marked that box. Smiley


This is Atlas. The Dems here think that anyone who isn't trailer trash or a stereotypical CEO is ultraliberal like them.
This is not just atlas but most of the democratic party and one of the biggest reasons we don't have meaningful political debate in this country anymore.
