(The Hill)   Trump campaigns for Strange in Alabama and helps the incumbent in the polls. Oh wait, reverse that. He helps Moore open up an eight-point lead in the race. Awkward   ( thehill.com) divider line

South Park got it wrong. This is the true contest between giant douche and shiat sandwich.

Or maybe it's between shiat sandwich and slightly larger shiat sandwich.

Compared to gerrymandering, polls are just another nothingburger.
With a little help from the friends, suppression and counting/reporting fraud, it is already bagged.
The results, have and will not change.

That's impossible. Last night despite the fake news CNN not showing the YUUGE crowd, they showed the crowd and there must have been at least 6 million people in that auditorium. If they all vote for Strange, he'll win by at least eleventy thousand percent.

I can't decide which would be worse.

Trump fellator and supportee Strange winning.

or

Trump fellator and christian Taliban member Moore winning.

Well the second one wants to make Yertle's and several other republican's lives hell so I'm partial to that one.

My real hope is that the Democrat running could sneak by during this infighting and win the seat but that's not real likely. Biden is going to be campaigning for him.. not sure that will help either.

Forget it, BizarreMan.  It's Alabama.  there are no winners.

"Trump campaigns for strange" is a succinct description of his romantic history, and probably why sexually-transmitted disease was his personal Vietnam.

Subby has difficulty subtracting or was it adding negative numbers......TFA gave an account opposite of the headline..Nonetheless true that Trump is campaigning for the loser amongst two evils.

There's no way Alabama votes D, so it might as well have the craziest, most racist, hyper-extreme christian zealot as the face of the GOP.

What little I've read says that Moore is the most beatable in the general - Jones could beat Moore but not Strange.

Trump is a political albatross, happy to hang around the necks of any Republican dumb enough to support Trump.
 
2017-09-23 11:08:26 AM  
Trump is such a grade-A weasel. He knows his base wants Moore, but he's already committed to Strange and Strange endorsed him. Trump can't flip, because he can't ever admit being wrong or whatever.

So what does the dotard do? He shows up at a Strange rally and more or less tells everyone to vote for Moore, because he'll campaign for him, too. Trump only looks out for one guy: Trump.

Except in this race it doesn't matter, because he supports both of the big names, and there's no way the Democrat will take the seat.

Opinion on South Park aside, that never made sense either. Douches are useful. Sure, the douche itself is smelly, but it leaves a vagina nice and clean. Whereas a shiat sandwich is good for nothing but pain and suffering.

Trump's not an albatross in the deep south, he's an asset.
 
2017-09-23 11:15:53 AM  
If he ran for strange, he'd win hands down
 
2017-09-23 11:17:11 AM  
During his campaign speech last night (in which he spent a significant chunk complaining about how the NFL should ban protestors of the national anthem and that concerns about it causing "brain damage" in players is ruining the game: yes, this happened) he made sure to tell everyone there that if Moore beats Strange he will endorse and campaign for him as well.
 
2017-09-23 11:18:00 AM  
as much as I'd like to hate on Trump, Moore was leading Strange by 18 points before Trump made his endorsement.

also, this poll was taken before yesterday's campaign rally.

Clearly not that much of one, if his endorsement of Strange isn't helping him win.

Trump is at best a nonentity.

No you don't. That's how you get Senator Roy Moore. You think Alabama isn't that stupid? Alabama is DEFINITELY that stupid.

trump has a ~51% approval rating in AL. I'd expect that to be higher.

Trump openly said he'd support either candidate in the general, so his endorsement was weak as hell.  Besides, even Alabama Republicans probably know that Moore is Trump's TRUE favorite candidate.

There once was a judge named Roy Moore
Who was caught in bed with a whore.
"As God is my witness,
I would never have hit this
If I hadn't seen her penis before."

/Moore likes poetry. Me? I just like talking about whores with penises.
 
2017-09-23 11:28:34 AM  
Well. Neither candidate exactly made much of a point of disowning Trump.

If I believed in the 4D chess hypothesis, I'd wonder if Trump was secretly backing Moore but agreed to campaign for Strange knowing full well that would alienate Strange's marginal supporters.

Good point.  Smarted.

Slight point of order, subby: Strange isn't the incumbent. There is no incumbent. The whole point of the special election is that the seat is vacant (and has been since Jeff Sessions resigned to become attorney-general).
 
2017-09-23 11:31:51 AM  
If Strange is serious, he will put out a poster of a photoshopped portrait of his opponent The Moore.
 
2017-09-23 11:32:58 AM  
This is also probably related to Roy Moore's own law professor from college coming out yesterday with a scathing op-ed, assuring citizens Moore is a class clown who will only grandstand in Congress.

Whoever wins, Alabama and the USA lose.

I really wonder what the professor who wrote that piece was thinking.  Doesn't he realize that an anti-endorsement from a liberal egghead like himself (and that's how Alabama GOPers will see him, regardless of his actual politics) is only going to energize Moore's base and probably pull fence-sitters toward him?

I'm guessing the fail tag is for subby.  Going from an 18 point advantage to an 8 point advantage isn't exactly opening up a lead.  People that can count might even consider a candidate thats lost over half his lead to be losing ground.

The DNC is sending a vocally anti-gun ownership politician to pump for their candidate in Alabama? Jesus we're farked.
 
2017-09-23 11:37:03 AM  
"This poll oversamples unlikely voters to manufacture a lead for Moore and should be taken with Jimmy Buffett's shaker of salt," said Senate Leadership Fund spokesman Chris Pack.

Should have known it wasn't lost- the Republicans stole it!

It's not vacant, actually. Strange was appointed as interim Senator until this special election could be held; he's been there since January doing all of the things Senators normally do.

Your analysis of douches is 1960s technology, NTTIAWWT because they were even able to send men to the moon and back with 1960s tech.

Basically a choice between Mussolini and the Ayatollah Khomeini, but for the down-to-earth Alabama voters it all comes down to, "Who's rally served the best beer?"
