I think Biden letting 9/11 happen just keep eating at these dedicated folks and they're still pissed at Obama giving Russia nukes. And Hillary is somehow forcing all the companies to move production overseas. And L Gor Kees creating global warming. Can you blame them for being mad?

Seriously, I know a lot of conservatives who  have a whole different memory of history in their  heads. It's complete fantasy and they live and die by it.

Wait. A site that makes money off getting morons to bet on political races is releasing surveys that make the political races it's collecting bets on seem more competitive? That's impossible. There's no way that could happen.

A world-wide inflation problem, mostly due to logistics issues from the pandemic, is somehow the Democrats fault, to a large US voting population.

We deserve the house to be run by clowns, you know, Republicans, so that they can provide inflation solutions investigate Dr. Fauci and impeach Biden.

We're seeing record numbers of women registering to vote across the country, and they are not voting Republican.

Given the levels of sheer panic we are seeing from the rich people who own most of our news media, I'll bet even the rich people are starting to understand just how pissed off everyone is with the GOP these days.
 
2022-09-28 2:55:17 PM  
I'm strongly opposed to the implication that Reagan was discernibly sharper in his first term.

/"Young Zaphod Plays It Safe" was a documentary!

Yes but the media has a vested interest in lying to everyone about the Democratic party.

Can you believe it? Shocking really. But when your Christian values align with those of white supremacy groups you vote Republican. They've been told they're under attack. It's a lie they buy into over and over again. Small minds, small goals, I won't judge.
 
2022-09-28 2:56:42 PM  
This is a nation of malicious mouth-breathing monstrosities.  Of course the GOP is going to win.
 
2022-09-28 2:58:29 PM  
Still the calm before the storm.  Campaigns really don't start until after Labor Day.  Oh, wait.

Anyway, need to see a few tv ad buys of that "Ceiling Republican watching you procreate" spot and a reminder that the GOP wants to give the Social Security Trust Fund to Wall Street.  Maybe point out a few legislative wins that actually benefit people?  I'm just spitballin' here, not a professional.

The Republicans attempted a coup, then enslaved American women in the crappy states to please theocratic throwbacks. It wouldn't even be close if most Americans were sane. The Republicans should be crushed.

Republicans are better at scaring people, especially the suburban white people Democrats need to win elections.

Republican commercial: Democrats are releasing criminals onto the streets to kill you and your family!
Suburban white people: OH MY GOD!!!!!!
Republican commercial: Democrats are trying to make your child feel guilty for being white!
Suburban white people: OH MY GOD!!!!!!
Republican commercial: Democrats want your daughter to show with boys in school!
Suburban white people: OH MY GOD!!!!!!
etc, etc., etc.

Yes, some people see thru the scare tactics, but a lot of people who would normally vote Democratic/Independent fall for them. It's how we got Youngkin and his two crazies running VA right now. He used all those tactics. CRT and Trans kids using their kid's lockerroom/bathrooms were his two main issues.
 
2022-09-28 3:00:48 PM  
"Republicans' chances for taking control of Senate rebound to 45%..."

Well that's not good

"...a level last seen..."

Oh no. They're going to say something bad, like the 1990s, or maybe worse the 1950s or WW2 or something.

"...7 weeks ago"

Oh.

Aside from short memories I think there has to be the realization that around a third of the country really really want fascism.

Conservatives are medically incapable of admitting when they are wrong about something. Even to themselves. Its what separates them from normal people.

This is the part I don't think is being shown off that well. The people willing to vote more now are also the exact people that would never take a survey.

As long as women and the younger generations continue to care, and unless RvW magically comes back they will, the polls don't really say a hell of a lot.

They didn't in Kansas either... there's very little reason to pay attention to them, unless you're an idiot trying to find any excuse not to vote.

And there's a lot of sad individuals like that around here.
 
2022-09-28 3:03:00 PM  
OK, so you vote in the Republicans. What are they going to do to fix inflation and lower gas prices?
 
2022-09-28 3:03:06 PM  
Biden is gonna have to unleash Dark Brandon and do a purge of the enemy in our country.  Yes it is a dirty deed.  But it must be done to save Our Democracy.  It is worth Dark Brandon getting his hands a little dirty to keep Our Democracy and stopping the great maga king and his ultra maga hoards.

Problem solved.

Eight hundred tons of THIS! This makes me madder than anything else, i.e. the Trump morons who have no idea that inflation is a global issue now. It has zero to do with how the country is doing. The other thing that these morons don't get, since they can barely read, is that one of the reasons gas prices are high is because oil companies really need record profits so of course they will raise prices because...they can.

Guys, it would be a terrible time to provide material economic relief for everyone not part of the capital/donor class, since nearly 60% of us are living paycheck to paycheck. Because that can never help, guys.

It's great that this article is based entirely on PredictIt betting. They Trump / Biden at 59/42 on election day 2020, and we've all been living the glorious second Trump administration ever since.
 
2022-09-28 3:14:11 PM  
Forgive me if i don't believe that Repubs have the chops to do didly-fark about inflation.

These are the same folks who have actively thrown every monkey wrench they could find into the gears of government by voting in opposition to everything.

Then these contrarian Repubs roll out some dubious fact-free bullet points on making America great again.

/ Is there a limit to how much smoke can they blow up American asses?

10 people showed up to mastriano's Harrisburg rally on Monday. 10.
And the rally before that, 60 people showed up.
Yet we see "polls" that insist the Dems aren't popular.
I have trust issues now with polling data.

The problem with that is even though the republican party, and their voting base, is openly cheering for fascism and detailing their plans to crush the opposition, run show trials, and bring the media and social media landscapes to heel... That just isn't enough. Browse any thread here in the politics tab. Democrats not being perfect is reason enough to stay home and let fascism and stupidity rule America. We're going to get exactly the government we deserve, as we always do.

It's not as though Democrats are actually doing anything about it. Or even offering any specific plans to do anything about it; none of the fundraising emails I'm getting don't have any details on what they're going to do to protect abortion (or any other) rights.
