Democrats built a wall around the House and Republicans paid for it (in political capital.)

All of this is for NOTHING unless we flip a bunch of state houses blue in 2020.

The enemies of democracy will use the updated information from the 2020 census to gerrymander even more openly and shamelessly than in 2010, in every state they can.

Republicans have signaled they plan to paint Democrats as obsessed with impeaching the president at the expense of scoring legislative wins for their constituents.

Tough sell when your boy is mobbed up with the Russians and McConnell is sitting on a mountain of passed House bills.

They always have a chance. Member in 2008 when a LOT of people on this website were claiming the death of the Republican party? Well 2 years later, people ran, mouths open, HAPPY to eat that Republican shiat sandwich again. All those people who elected Trump are still out there.

Until such times that the election results aren't directly proportional to your war chest, and that - to the tax cuts you're prepared to execute, they do.

You have people in Texas interviewed by the media who say they think Trump is doing a great job.

You see that and you can believe that anything can happen.

I am extremely reluctant to get my hopes up. I have no faith in the American electorate, and I assume there will be all sorts of shenanigans going on to cheat for the Republicans.

Perhaps. But that point in the political cycle would be 2022, not 2020.

Republicans will say things like that those bills are anti-american or Barr has said their was no collusion, and I trust Barr over reality.

Friend of mine farmed soy beans until about a month ago.  He harvested then started applying for jobs.  He's looking in the soy bean farming industry because that's what he knows, that might be shortsighted.  Trump's socialist cash redistribution didn't save his family farm.  My buddy might find somebody to work the land next season, he's pretty sure he won't.  His wife teaches at KU so he's not gonna starve, but still, thanks for killing by friend's family business, Mr. Trump.

Oh, and he's not voting R for a while.  He feels betrayed.  I bet he's not the only one.

Good luck getting 63 million losers again, fatstuff.

Most of Trump's support in Texas is rural and small-town -- and they're also the turds who still control the legislature. But more than 75% of Texans now live in large urban areas, and even gerrymandering can do so much. Dallas, Houston, and Austin have significant gay populations. Those cities also often elect Democrats in local elections, where gerrymandering doesn't apply. Texas isn't cowboy country any more. It's not going to turn blue in 2020, but that change is coming.
