    mnw, just looked up your boy, Nicholson. I like what I see!

    Yes, Nicholson is the GOP sleeper, hopefully.

    This PA poll, for a dark red seat, & the MO Senate poll are encouraging.

  4. lisab says:

    so what is the trol meme today? oprah in 2020?

  5. mnw says:

    The troll meme of the day has not yet emerged.

    If they want to run on “Impeach Trump!” in ‘18, that should add to the difficulties of all the red state DEM incumbents, imo.

    Imagine how happy McCaskill will be to hear a lot of “Impeach!” noise… in MO… which Trump carried by 17 points.

    Conor? Lamb

    Not Connor?

    Conor…pronounced like “donor”?

    JUST IN: Rep Ed Royce (R-CA) is retiring:

  12. Robbie says:

    Ed Royce just announced his retirement and the district will almost certainly flip. Meanwhile, the HHR gong show will spend the next ten months wrapping themselves in the warm embrace of Rasmussen polls and tell themselves fairy tales that Trump’s Twitter feed is awesome and super helpful.

    The House is almost certainly gone and that means Donnie will almost certainly be impeached. Despite that, he’ll still run for re-election and almost certainly be re-nominated by the party because Rush Limbaugh and FoxNews will never dump Trump.

  13. Waingro says:

    #14, lol. Never change, Robbie!!

  14. Robbie says:

    Clearly, he doesn’t read HHR otherwise he’d know everything is going great for Republicans.

    (((Harry Enten)))
    @ForecasterEnten

    The generic ballot is a double digit Dem lead… The president has an approval rating of below 40%… Dems are outperforming in special elections by double digits… Can’t blame Royce or really any GOPer who is retiring.

  15. Waingro says:

    Interesting thread here from Decision Desk. Pelosi will probably be on the phone soon, ordering a few of these people to drop out.

    On the other hand, so many Democrats are running in #CA39 that if the Republicans run just two candidates in the primary, they could theoretically snag both spots in June.

  19. DW says:

    Robbie has just been dying for bad GOP news, and once he gets it rushes in to gloat.

    CA_39 is a competitive district, slightly GOP leaning, so if a good recruit can be gotten, the seat isn’t a sure flip.

    and I still am waiting for Robbie to back up his prediction that the house is gone with state by state list of the seats that will flip to make it happen.

    – LOL. Four years ago, everyone in this forum agreed the best predictor of a president’s party success in midterms elections was the president’s approval rating. Obama’s approval was in the mid 40’s in 2010 and 2014 and it produced bad losses for Democrats. Donnie’s approval rating is in the upper 30’s. That’s not just wave territory. It’s tsunami territory.

    But by all means, spend the year telling yourselves gerrymandering and other magic thinking will save the day. I guess that will be the new delbov curve.

    – Chicon is the scumbag who wrote that I hoped Trump had a stroke. It was total lie (check the archives form Friday), but Chicon is also someone who believes in conspiracies and has refused to disavow the conspiracy that the DNC murdered Seth Rich or that Obama used British intelligence to spy on Trump.

    – Romney won the district 5 years ago. Trump got creamed in the district and, oh by the way, Trump is the president and will be the president on election day 2018. Unless you can find a way to muzzle and hide the orange buffoon, citing voting patterns from the Romney race is a waste of time.

  29. DW says:

    27 – ok, so that’s your answer. You don’t have a list of congressional seats that will flip to make your dream come true. A list we can actually discuss and debate. That you don’t have one means you are just cheering.

    So what if Republicans pass legislation to give back a higher portion of the salt deduction and make the individual tax law changes permanent. That could be fun to see how democrats vote.

    – No. I’m not going to waste my time compiling a list. This is going to be a wave election. Making a list is a waste of time. All kinds of House seats though to be safe won’t be on election days. Ask Republicans from 2006 and 2008. Ask Democrats from 2010.

    What’s really amazing to me is to watch you descend into Trumpism. Because I think there’s a very, very good chance Democrats will win the House, you think that means I’m cheering for Republicans to lose. Nothing could be further from the truth. What upsets me is that so many of you here refuse to acknowledge things are going very badly for Republicans.

    I guess people aren’t concerned because Trump is a verys table genius.

  32. Hugh says:

    I think if in November no one cares or knows about a booming economy record low minority unemployment and a skyrocketing market the gop could lose the house. Btw people are stupid enough to believe the economy sucks when it’s great and vice versa. I still think we pick up Senate seats regardless.

    33 – “What’s really amazing to me is to watch you descend into Trumpism”

    “What upsets me is that so many of you here refuse to acknowledge things are going very badly for Republicans.”

    And you thought Trump would lose in a bloodbath in 2016, but he didn’t. So why would we listen to you now? House races have a different flavor than statewide senate races. A lot depends on the candidate’s local strengths, and just because the Dems have anti-Trump voters all riled up to vote in the big cities, doesn’t mean they get to vote in congressional districts outside those cities.

    So you won’t give me a list of the seats that will flip, meaning you have no real interest in discussing this. You are just cheering for it to happen.

    Its not hard to get a list. Of the 435 seats out there, only a fraction are even competitive. So lets see your list and then we can discuss it.

  37. DW says:

    And I have not descended into Trumpism.

    Out of the 17 GOP candidates, he was in the bottom three on my list. My fear was he would become a lapdog for Pelosi and Schumer. Instead he gave us Gorsuch, and has reduced the size of government and led a tax cut. He is as personally repulsive to me as he has ever been, but he has gotten results.

    The economy is roaring, and unemployment dropping and stocks are off the charts. It would be foolish this early to be predicting any sort of Dem wave election. Lets see where the economy and things are in the summer. Then we will have a better fix on things. But making your statements this early is nothing but cheerleading and hoping.

    This may help you answer DW’s request. This is the Cook Political Report,which shows only one(1) GOP seat, FL-27, going Donkey this year. Please show us the other 23 DEFINITE seats the GOP will lose. Being that you live in KY, do you believe Andy Barr’s seat is vulnerable?

  41. DW says:

    40 – you may have been here since 2004, but the charge made sticks. You aren’t liked here. You don’t ever learn, because you think you know it all. You are too proud to admit that you don’t always have all the answers. In my background here, I made a lot of mistakes, early on making some unneeded enemies, but I have tried to learn from my mistakes. Way back I was even on the outs with Wes for a while. I have learned a lot about politics throughout the years, and I no doubt have much more to learn.

    But you are here to pontificate and cheer whenever there is bad news for the GOP. Another mistake in the past that I made was giving you too much credit. While others were piling in to call you a troll and all sorts of names, I remained neutral toward you, giving you the benefit of the doubt, thinking that maybe you were just an eeyore. Turns out others were right, and I was wrong. You probably work for Transparent Dem Troll, and you fooled me for years. No longer.

    – You can serve up whatever talking points you want to say 2018 won’t be bad as feared, but I heard the same things said in 2006 and 2008 by Republicans. I also heard the same things said by Democrats in 2010. How’d that work out for them? All of the lists went out the door when the votes were counted.

    This is going to be a wave. Trump’s approval rating sucks, the Democrats are energized, and Republicans are demoralized. Good candidates with great resumes or gerrymandered lines won’t matter one bit when the national tide is against one party.

    Just look at what happened to Virginia House Republicans. Everyone assumed gerrymandered lines would save the Republicans and it took a raffle ticket to ensure a one seat margin.

    – And at this point in 2010, very few experts believed Democrats would lose the House. Yet, the signs of a wave were there and the experts were confounded when Democrats lost 63 seats.

    There are plenty of seats that shouldn’t be in trouble, but end up in trouble during a wave year. In 2006, Republicans lost an unlosable House seat in Kansas. In 2008, Republicans lost Hastert’s seat. In 1994, the Democrats Speaker of the House lost his race.

    Worry about a list now missing the forest for the trees.

  48. DW says:

    I didn’t worry about a list, I just asked for one. You don’t have a list of races that will actually decide the outcome, but you already know the outcome.

  49. Paul says:

    The conventional wisdom right now is that the Senate will remain GOP and the House will flip to Dems. I’m not sure if either is a sure thing at all. It’s quite possible for the GOP to have both House and Senate.

    And I think if there is a big enough wave that flips so many House seats, then I imagine Donnelly and McCaskill ride the same wave with Nevada and Arizona going to the Dems.

    But the scenario where the Dems don’t quite have big enough wave to get either is a real possibility in my mind.

  50. DW says:

    If you don’t care, then why bother? You just reveled why you are here, and that is to cheer for Democrats.

    – This is laughable. If you think I cheer Republicans losing, then Trumpism really has infected your thinking.

    It depresses me greatly to see the Republican Party fall apart under Trump’s presidency. The thought of Pelosi as Speaker again makes me cringe. The hard won majorities of 2010 are going to smashed and it could be a while before we get another chance to be in the majority.

    But what I’m not going to do is tell myself fairy tales that things are going well when they clearly aren’t.

    Second, Cernovich is an alt-right clown.

  88. NYCmike says:

    One other thing: when is The State Of The Union speech?

    That will be APPOINTMENT TELEVISION!

  89. NYCmike says:

    “I will take Trump’s sanity”

    -Of course, you mean his STABLE GENIUS! 🙂

    Scott Adams is having too good of a time explaining that branding phrase.

  90. Tgca says:

    Been busy so missed some time here. Did a Bitter start his new job yet? Did he get fired? Does everyone know he’s an A-hole at the job yet?

  91. NYCmike says:

    “Did a Bitter start his new job yet? Did he get fired? Does everyone know he’s an A-hole at the job yet?”

    -Yes/No (I think)/Probably

    Bitter must hace started, mot so many posts.

    He is now super lawyer.

  94. Chicon says:

    94 – there’s been endless discussion of ABORTION!

    At least until Robbie shows up.

  95. mnw says:

    Trump got a nice reception at the American Farm Bureau meeting in Nashville. He stressed the elimination of inheritance tax for most family farms.

    With the PA poll posted above, & the Emerson MO SEN poll ( Hawley +4 over McCaskill), pretty encouraging day.

  96. Diamond Jim says:

    C

  97. jason says:

    watch people who have claimed to be conservative over the years go to bat for Trump simply because he has a R next to his name?

    And the person who wrote this actually questions someeone else’s sanity?

    So Wobbie, have you found the post yet where I say Trump is a conservative or a Republican?

    I go to bat for Trump when I think he is right. Contrary to you, I can do that even if he defeated the candidate I supported.

  98. Tgca says:

    You guys endlessly discussed ABORTION in my absence. That’s just so wrong.

  99. Wobbles says:

    Yeah Tina, the other GA team choked it up big time.

    We got your coach though, seems like he had some ideat at year end.

  111. Chicon says:

    Hey, Bitter, what do you think of the new Bears coach, Nagy, who as been a Ried guy forever?

  112. Big Joe says:

    I do hope the GA team wins. They seem to have the same fan base as the Falcons and they took a tough loss in the Super Bowl. Plus my friend told me Alabama is an Evil Empire so …

    Whoops, pete the cheat has the mistress. I was trying to indicate that the ugly ohrs are the next in line of fire tonight.

    Strzok interviewed flynn and there may be emails of him opposing flynn.

    That coukd be the next shoe that drops.

    While flynn plead, the fisa judge was removed for some apparent reason. The new judge is not too hapoy with fubment and wiretaps.

  117. Tina says:

    It appears that oete the cheat and the mistress are dumb.

    Why would tou text this sheot using gubment resources.

    Wtf

  118. Big Joe says:

    Confusing stuff, Tina. I honestly think this is all noise to the casual observer. They will vote or not vote based on their ideology.

    I firmly believe every election for the foreseeable future will be a base election and that all politics will be national. Any candidate that tries to buck this trend will lose, like Jon Ossoff.

    Big Joe

  119. mnw says:

    Joe

    It is mind-numbingly confusing.

  120. Tina says:

    Yeah joe, it is confusing, a lot of new stuff as we wait for the oig report, which has derailed muleheads investigation,

    Lots of players to keep track, but it is not looking good for the fbi leadership, ex, such comedy, sjw yates, etc. lots of recent demotions. One official, a lawyah, is working the mailroom.

    Not looking good.

  121. Tina says:

    It looks like pete the cheat and the mistrss, and the ugly ohrs leaked stuff to the ny slimes and the amazon compost

  122. Tom says:

    Finally had to mute the half-time show at the NC game. We are doomed.

  123. Tina says:

    Surprising that the nfl playoff ratings this past weekend were strongly down. Lots of upsets, but lousy qb play.

  124. Hugh says:

    122. I agree with your comment completely

  125. Tom says:

    127. The NFL is in denial. Ratings are down because a lot of former fans (like me) are disgusted and have moved on.

  126. Hugh says:

    127. Very true. I am a 60 year old male. My friends all spent Sunday watching nfl. And now they do not and they do not miss it. We learned the product isn’t that good. Most teams suck and do not have a chance. Not easy to bring those fans back.

  127. Bitterlaw says:

    Chicon – Reid has a good number of assistants who became head coaches or coordinators. Not bad for a guy Jason hates. (of course, Jason never had an opinion until MD gave it to him).

  128. Bitterlaw says:

    I will go back for the second day but I am still looking for another job. I will not make the mistake of loyalty ever again.

  129. NYCmike says:

    How was it, Bitterlaw? Nice people? How was the work?

  130. NYCmike says:

    Intellectually satisfying?

  131. Bitterlaw says:

    We learned the product isn’t that good. Most teams suck and do not have a chance. Not easy to bring those fans back.

    If those teams improved, their fans would be back. The decline in ratings is only partially due to protests. Bigger factors are Millenials don’t watch on platforms that go into ratings. Also, Thursday night games have generally sucked – except for Panthers-Eagles.

  132. Bitterlaw says:

    Nice enough people. Work is more of an area of law I don’t like as much. Instead of being in a city, I am nowhere. I traded my city view for a parking lot. Unlike the prior job where I came and went as I pleased as long as I billed my time, this is more structured hours.

    My wife advised me in strong terms that we can’t afford for me to retire. Damn.

  133. NYCmike says:

    Want to note something about the elections in November – just received my Annual Statement fir one of my mutual funds. Up 32%, about the same as market overall.

    But, people will notice the higher amounts. That tends to extinguish some flames (emotions), and dampen others, as well as help to focus those who work and earn, and the focus will be on “I want MORE if the same!”.

    Good time to be selling the free market!

  134. NYCmike says:

    Butterlaw just asked me the other day if I remember being a man…….how does your new dress fit, mi amiga?

  135. Hugh says:

    True. If my colts were great I’d watch. But I watched them last year all the same. When people walk away from a product mad. And many of us fit that description it is hard to get them back. The nfl pissssssed away a great brand unnecessarily.

  136. NYCmike says:

    Juanita Broaddrick to Oprah: “Funny, I have never heard you mention my name.”

    Mic drop!

  137. Hugh says:

    Btw. Best wishes in your new job. Forget about working in the city. Pride goeth before a fall.

  138. mnw says:

    NYC

    I hope that’s right.

    The big challenge is to turn the fact of the good economy into a motive to vote for the GOP House & Senate nominees in an off-year election.

    I confess, I’m not sure how to do that. Reagan’s famous closing line in one of the debates, “Are you better off than you were 4 years ago?” comes to mind.

    Maybe try to turn that upside down somehow— “Do you want more of what you’ve seen in my first 2 years, or do you want to go back to open borders, Obamacare, and more federal regulations again?”

    Something…

  139. Bitterlaw says:

    Hugh – I loved being in the city with real lawyers. I never minded the 3% wage tax. It seemed like a small price to pay be somewhere I wanted to be.

    As for the NFL, I guess it is a matter of perspective. Fans who boycott think it was hugely important and the main reason ratings declined. Fans who did not boycott think it was one of several reasons.

  140. Bitterlaw says:

    When the stock market did well under Obama, libs said it was because of Obama and HHR said he had nothing to do with it.

    Now, HHR gives Trump the credit while libs say he has nothing to do with it.

    Interesting.

  141. lisab says:

    My wife advised me in strong terms that we can’t afford for me to retire. Damn.
    ————————–

    that is actually a good sign, it means she is not planning divorce yet

  142. lisab says:

    there was a reason the market did well, at least initially, under obama … it dropped hugely under bush. that happened even during the great depression, those who sold during the crash got clobbered … those who held their stock for a year or two got their money back.

    at the peak under bush the market was about 14k, when obama left it was about 17k or a gain of about 3k in 8 years for those who bought and held. that is just awful growth for the stock market …

    the current market growth under trump is all expectation from better gdp growth given less taxes and less regulation. that growth needs to meet expectations for their not to be a market drop.

  143. Hugh says:

    Bitter. When you are coming out of the biggest recession since the depression if you did nothing you would have a recovery. Trump drove up the market after the recovery already occurred.

  144. lisab says:

    this is the reason that it is somewhat dangerous for the gop and trump to say to much about the stock market, because it could disappear in a few months or even weeks if the country does not grow as expected.

  145. lisab says:

    wow robbie was certainly robbiesque today

  146. NYCmike says:

    “Now, HHR gives Trump the credit while libs say he has nothing to do with it.”

    -Just stop equivocating, for once!

    I know I didn’t mention Trump when I mentioned my mutual funds. I mentioned the voters.

    Trump’s name is NOT on the ballot until 2020.

    Until then, I am hoping $$$$ leads to a better electoral outcome in regards to Republican incumbents/challengers.

  147. NYCmike says:

    ” that growth needs to meet expectations for their not to be a market drop.”

    -True. But with less restrictions, lower tax rate, more people working, and rates still at almost-all-time-lows, lots of room for that to happen.

    I am optimistic. I am not blind to what may happen, with foreign policy issues set to explode at any time, but as Buffett and Munger say (paraphrasing) “We will bet on the United States of America any day of the week!”.

  148. NYCmike says:

    lisab,

    He is unhinged. DW was very polite, trying to debate the merits of his doomsday calls, but Robbie would have none of it.

    A kook.

  149. NYCmike says:

    Cheers.

  150. lisab says:

    DW,

    i can translate robbie for you.

    the robbie posts #14, 16, 20, 25, 27, 28, 29, 30, 33, 40, 41, 45, 48, 49, 53, 55, 57, 58, 59, 61, 63, and 65 in english would be:

    hi guys,

    my feeling is that 2018 will be a wave election, and the dems will take the house and senate, although i have no evidence to back it up.

    i think you may be mistaken that the gop will hold the house or senate.

    that is just my humble opinion, thank you for your consideration.

  151. Chicon says:

    49 – that’s all he ever is these days.

  152. lisab says:

    however, i may have taken some liberties with tone of his posts in my traslation,

    i think it is notionally accurate

  153. lisab says:

    trump’s farm speech went well today

    hubby is from a farming family, equipment costs and inheritance taxes are huge concerns

    they usually say they are asset rich and cash poor, so it is a big deal in the midwest

  154. MichiganGuy says:

    “Ratings for opening round of NFL playoffs flop. After a nightmare season that saw TV viewership fall a record 9.7 percent, an even larger wave of fans passed on watching the first round of the NFL playoffs last weekend.
    Overnight ratings for the four Wild Card games fell by an average of 13 percent — with one game, the Saints-Panthers matchup, off a whopping 21 percent, according to Nielsen.”

    https://nypost.com/2018/01/08/ratings-for-opening-round-of-nfl-playoffs-flop/
    ——————————————————————————————————– Bitterlaw: well nobody likes the Bills and Jaguars anyway. Wait until my Eagles play. There will be huge ratings. LOL

  155. lisab says:

    the nfl loss is huge … a big mistake by the nfl.

    i can remember when baseball was king, and people would put the games on and watch for hours …

    then the nba took off and that was king, because there were some great rivalries and the game was fast paced and exciting … but then they started putting all the best players on just a couple of teams and it got boring

    for the last say 20 years the nfl has been king, but they are dropping

    once you lose a loyal customer, it is hard to win them back. i cannot see too many people going back to listening to baseball games every day for 3 or 4 hours …

    i certainly knew guys who used to watch 3 nfl games on sunday and 1 on monday night … but once they stop and see they have 10 or 12 more hours in the week, it will be hard to get them back on the couch

  156. MichiganGuy says:

    lisab, I agree. I used to spend most of my Sunday watching football after Church. Now, I spend that time on family activities. I don’t plan on going back to watching football for hours like I used too. The nfl protests was a blessing in disguise for my family and I.

  157. Paul says:

    I am hopeful that Robbie is right. I’m worried it may not be as big a wave as is needed.

  158. lisab says:

    you should be worried

    things are not going your way right now.

  159. Paul says:

    I’m not so sure about that. I think things are going very poorly for Trump at the moment. But I’m too much of a realist to be too hopeful.

    Not sure if things are going your way or not.

  160. Paul says:

    Since I don’t know which way is your way. 🙂

  161. Paul says:

  162. lisab says:

    But I’m too much of a realist to be too hopeful.
    ———————————————–

    well, since the economy is going up and taxes are going down in february, as well as home prices and the stock market high — year end 401k statements now being seen by people — things are decidedly not going your way. you really should watch trump’s speech today in front of farmers … they were very happy with him — try to ignore your friends on this. they would never have voted for trump anyway. in fact, the more they hate trump, the more you are losing, because it probably means he is doing well.
    —————————————

    Not sure if things are going your way or not.

    my way is the country’s way. unlike you/robbie/cg
    i don’t have loyalty to a party, my loyalty is to the country.

    so far, i am pleasantly surprised by trump. food stamps are down, taxes are down, highest black employment rate ever ….

    i actually am getting SERIOUS misgivings over how bad the dems will be if they take over the house — given how deranged robbie is (and others).

    i don’t think at this point i could in good conscience vote for the dems … put people like robbie in charge? i would not trust him to sharpen my pencil.

  163. Paul says:

    Enjoy your koolaid, Lisa.

  164. Paul says:

    I’m pretty certain Robbie is NOT a dem. We aren’t claiming him 🙂

  165. lisab says:

    you are the one with koolaid paul/robbie/cg

    the tax cuts are real, the 401ks are real

    “robbie” made 22 posts about 1 topic today … that is just today

  166. Paul says:

    By the way….a lot of of my family are farmers. So I do understand their world pretty well.

  167. Paul says:

    And no farmer that I’ve ever known would have been affected by the old version of the estate tax.

  168. lisab says:

    the most significant part was that farmers can write off 100% of equipment costs

    only 10% of farmers are affected by federal estate taxes

  169. Paul says:

    My family is from an Indiana county with very low land prices so they’d never get to within 10 million dollars of the $11 million exempt for a couple.

  170. Paul says:

    So, I think your 10% is a bit high. More like .1% of farmers.

  171. lisab says:

    it is 11 million if you are married
    it is half that if you are single …

    approximatly 50% of farms have 1000+ acres
    approximately 25% have 2000+ acres or more

    the number of farms continues to decline as farm size keeps increasing

  172. lisab says:

    actually, that is farmland, not farms

    so according to the usda, there are about 57,000 farms, but only 14000 have 1000+ acres

  173. Paul says:

    I think you may be right. And I may be wrong. My apologies.

    With 2000 acres or more, you would be getting to the 11 million dollar mark.

  174. lisab says:

    sorry, 57000 farms in indiana, not the usa of course

  175. lisab says:

    With 2000 acres or more, you would be getting to the 11 million dollar mark.
    —————————-

    correct, but of course inheritance taxes really hurt after BOTH parents die

    assuming they do not die at the same time

    the limit is really only $5 million

  176. lisab says:

    but that is not the real issue

    because YOU don’t pay inheritance taxes

    but you do pay for equipment

  177. lisab says:

    i currently live in ny

    and i am from massachusetts

    the average farm size in ma is only 67 acres

    of course the land is probably worth 5 million but that is because it should not be farmland

  178. lisab says:

    but again, not the point really

    if you want to buy a doohicky that goes on a tractor it can easily be $5000

  179. lisab says:

    doohicky is an agricultural term

  180. mnw says:

    Contra Paultroll, I don’t think Bost’s seat in IL will flip. I doubt trolly knows a damn thing about it. Just something he read somewhere.

  181. DW says:

    165 – Sabato is the most hard left of the three toupees, but even he has ‘only’ 17 GOP held seats in the tossup category.

    http://www.centerforpolitics.org/crystalball/2018-house/

    But he also has four Dem seats in the tossup category.

    So for Robbie’s plan to work, literally ALL tossups have to go to the Dems. Then several Lean R seats would also have to flip…in Sabato’s grid, the guy who has always been the most left-leaning. But at least you gave a list. Later today I will start going through your list one by one.

  182. DW says:

    But right off the bat, TX_07 and TX_32 would seem to be likely GOP holds. Even Sabato says TX_32 is Likely GOP.

  183. NYCmike says:

    Either way, Paul should be commended for providing a list so that a discussion/debate could be had on the merits of each situation.

    There is always the possibility Robbie is correct…….his CHEERLEADING could INSPIRE some people out there!

  184. mnw says:

    DW

    Let me present this for your consideration.

    RE: Bost (R-inc) IL-12:

    PVI is R+5. Bost has won twice previously. Last time, he was one of the DEMs’ top red-to-blue targets. They thought they had an unusually strong nominee in Judge Ann Callis (“Judge Goodbody”). It wasn’t even close.

    So, how in hell does Bost end up on Wonbles’ list?

    The DEMs have their candidate of choice again, the St. Clair County States Atty, this time. Having won twice now, Bost has good name rec. His opponent only in St. Clair County, i.e., the county that included East St. Louis.

    Nobody is mad at Bost. Not a whiff of scandal or controversy that I know of.

    Why, DW, does Bost in his R+5 district get plunked down on Wobbles’ “easy pickins” list?

  185. mnw says:

    sb “includes East St. Louis”

    Discuss.

  187. mnw says:

    DE

    Last time, Bost won 54-40!

    He beat Callis in 2014. My mistake. But further research makes Bost look even more formidable, imo. Bost by +14 in a state where Trump got waxed?

  188. NYCmike says:

    mnw,

    “IT’S A WAVE!!”

  189. NYCmike says:

    https://amgreatness.com/2018/01/08/trump-really-crazy/

    -More VDH, just for Robbie The Waveman!

  190. DW says:

    mnw…thanks…I am going to put together responses on other entries on the list.

  191. mnw says:

    Politico says J.D. Vance, author of Hillbilly Elegy, is being approached by McConnell about running for OH Senate.

    An intriguing possibility. Vance has no money of his own, & the filing deadline is just a moth away, however.

    The more places that the DEMs feel compelled to spend money, the better.

    I’m sure the DEMs will spend at Ossoff levels to try to take PA CD-18 in the March special election. Good.

  192. Bitterlaw says:

    My son and his friends watch NFL games on their phones. That is not captured in the ratings.

    I never said the boycott is not a factor. I said it is not the only factor.

    Matchups and team quality matter. Wait until Tom Brady retires. The Patriots’ ratings will drop back to where they were when the Patriots suck.

  193. Bitterlaw says:

    Sucked

  194. jason says:

    -What is worse – a racist (and quite possibly free-loading) individual, or an unaccountable central government?

    Quite possibly? LOL.

    -What is worse – a racist (and quite possibly free-loading) individual, or an unaccountable central government?

    Translation: how can I use this decision to somehow make excuses for the racist free-loading scumbag?

  195. jason says:

    “Paul should be commended”

    Good oxymoron!

  196. jason says:

    Paul knows a lot about farms?

    Let me guess..he has played Big Farm online?

  197. Bitterlaw says:

    2 hours on phone with computer set-up guy.

  198. jason says:

    The Death Tax is the most immoral tax ever invented.

    The idea the government should be able to confiscate money that has already been taxed during the life of the individual is disgusting, I don’t care if you have a million or a billion dollars.

    People work and invest and save so they can pass on their wealth on to their heirs, and they pay taxes throughout their lifetimes.

    It should be done away entirely.

  199. jason says:

    Bitter seems to thnk the boycott has to be measured in numbers.

    I don’t really care how many other people feel the way I do. I don’t make decisions based on whether the boycott will be successful or not.

    I stopped “giving” money to the NFL. I won’t buy games online, go to games, buy anything from their online store. I still watch some games that come with my Verizon package.

    I hope eventually enough people will stop watching and attending so that it will impact the player’s salaries and the owner’s revenues. But even if it doesn’t, it’s my personal decision not to support people who disrespect the military and the flag.

    If Bitter thinks there is no difference in attendance and viewership, fine with me.

  200. Chicon says:

    I think the NFL is just not as exciting as it used to be. I’m not a fan of the anthem protests, but that’s not why I watch much less than previously. Since I’m not completely sure why I watch less, I’m not sure what the league can do to change it.

    Apathy is more dangerous to the league than anger.

  201. DW says:

    204 – agreed. Double-jeopardy. Its not allowed in criminal law, and it shouldn’t be allowed on our money in its exposure to taxation.

  202. Bitterlaw says:

    I did not say that there was no difference in attendance.

  203. Phil says:

    I wouldn’t characterize my complete ignoring of the NFL as a “boycott”. More like I don’t choose to spend any of my dollars on anything NFL related. It’s a single personal choice based on the social justice crap, disrespect my flag stuff coming out of the NFL over the past several years.

    If Bitter or anyone else wants to follow the NFL more power to them – just not me or my money. College football fills the void for me and last night’s game is an example of why. Other people can do what they want. The league is dead to me, however.

  204. DW says:

    206 – the NFL seems to be making the same mistake NASCAR made about 15 years ago.

    People forget that NASCAR was quickly becoming one of the most popular things out there for Sunday entertainment. Back in 2002 for instance the grandstands were full, NASCAR had opened tracks in all the biggest markets and the sky seemed to be the limit.

    Then they started taking their fans for granted, and made all the wrong decisions, and then doubled-down on those decisions, and now they are a shell of what they once were.

    They are in steady decline

  205. DW says:

    Another thing Robbie said that was wrong yesterday…claiming the Drats have a double-digit generic congressional ballot lead in the polls.

    Something as huge as the tax bill means all polling done prior to its passage is worthless. Only two generic ballot polls have been done after the tax bill, and they are D+6 and D+7, far from double-digit.

  206. Phil says:

    I also recognize that as a football fan I have an alternative with college football. It’s a big deal in the South and almost a way of life. It makes my choice to disregard the NFL rather easy. I have something to fill my football void. If you live in the Northeast unless you happen to be a Penn State fan you have no football alternative other than the NFL. Makes ignoring the NFL much harder for a football fan. I get it and don’t knock fans in that part of the country continuing to follow the NFL. They like football. To each his or her’s own.

  207. Chicon says:

    210 – I see the analogy. Nascar had kind of a sudden rise to new heights (in new markets;mostly) before the fall. Have they fallen back to previous levels, or even lower?

    The NFL was king for a long time. They’re not exactly poor, but things have turned for sure. It’ll be interesting to see what they do about it.

  208. Phil says:

    What time does Robbie get here with his Trump is mentally ill talking points?

  209. Chicon says:

    211 – agree on tax cuts. The view on that will improve when the paychecks reflect the lower rates.

  210. mnw says:

    DW

    Valid point.

    Also, I notice none of the-sky-is-falling articles about how unpopular Trump is ever mention that Trump is about where Zero was at the same point in time.

    IL-12: I have personal knowledge of this race, & I think it’s stupid to say that one flips. I don’t think the putative DEM nominee is a giant killer, & Bost is a non-controversial incumbent.

  211. Mr.Vito says:

    Robbie has spent too much time at 40000 feet.

  212. DW says:

    213 – well, the attendance is way way down. Used to be packed seats. Now they close multiple grandstands to bunch everyone up whose left so it looks ‘full’ to the TV cameras. But even then there are huge number of empty seats visible.

    It used to be qualifying for races was stressful because only 43 cars were allowed, and every week there were cars shut out who didn’t qualify. Then only 43 cars showed up, so everyone made it…but now they cannot even get 43 cars, so they dropped the number to 39 entries.

    Now that their big stars have almost all retired, NASCAR has no hope to rebuild.

  213. Sheeple, Jr. says:

    #211- DW
    Also, if you look at last week’s YouGov Poll which was D+8 in PID, the Congressional Generic Ballot for the first time in awhile showed Republicans +5 with Independents.

    No, rottie has spent to. Uch time in the basement.

  218. Paul says:

    I agree. Not quite sure why I put Bost on the list. And the Iowa ones are longer shots.

    The point is that it will take a wave for the House to actually flip. That wave might not come. But if the wave happens there will be a number of unexpected flips as well.

  219. Paul says:

    Here’s an updated list with several removed and some added. This is 28. They need 23 to flip. The percentage at the end of each line is what Clinton won in the district.

  224. jason says:

    Robbie has spent too much time at 40000 feet.”

    It’s not the altitude per se, but it was a mistake not to use the oxygen.

  225. Paul says:

    Like I’ve said before. Dems winning the house is a LESS sure thing than the betting odds might suggest. And I think the Reps keeping the senate is also LESS of a sure thing.

    I think both fall together. Which way they fall is dependent on what happens in the next few months.

  226. Paul says:

    mnw: Are you also from Illinois area?

  227. jason says:

    I watched 2 of the 4 playoff games. In the past I would have watched all 4.

    The kneeling players and the leftwards tilt of the sports MSM have made me lose interest in the game.

    I am sure I will the SB unless its the Jaguars against the Falcons.

  228. jason says:

    What time does Robbie get here with his Trump is mentally ill talking points?”

    Since he never had an original thought of his own, first he has to check out all the moonbat sites so he can regurgitate the drivel here.

    Be patient.

  229. Chicon says:

    233 – that’s my viewing pattern these days, too. Used to schedule life around NFL, now I’ll watch it if it is on. Anthem has less to do with it for me, so I don’t feel like I’m giving up anything I’d otherwise do.

  230. jason says:

    Right now the odds are about 60-40 the Dems will capture the House and 60-40 Rs will retain the Senate.

    I think its more like 50-50 and 70-30.

    Its also 10% that Oprah will be President.

    I think its more like 1%.

  231. Chicon says:

    Also, watching last night, I noticed several plays that would have been flags in the NFL that aren’t in college.

  232. jason says:

    “Which way they fall is dependent on what happens in the next few months”

    Paul is obviously a deep thinker.

    Of course, when the nanny state he is so enamored with actually happens, he won’t have to do any thinking.

  233. DW says:

    225 – Katko? Even the toupees have him as Likely R. He has slaughtered his opponents. I think he is drawing a tougher opponent, but still. Katko has no scandal, is well liked, and will run up the score in the rural areas of his district and hold his own around Syracuse.

  234. Phil says:

    Jason,

    Kamala Harris will be the Democratic nominee in 2020. Book it. She’s a certifiable lefty loon.

    I don’t consider Arpaio to be a serious threat to win the GOP primary.

  240. mnw says:

    To the extent that Arpaio hurts Ward, his supposed candidacy improves the HOP chances of holding the seat. McSally would be the strongest HOP nominee, I concede, although I can’t stand her.

  241. MichiganGuy says:

    Here are some of national vote fraud panel’s most explosive findings:

    The voting dead. Investigators looked at voters’ birthdates and found that 45,880 votes in the 2016 election were cast by people who would have been at least 115 years old on election day.

    Some 45 people voted, even though they were born before the year 1700!

    Either there’s widespread voter fraud, or the zombie apocalypse began in the ballot box!

    Underage voters. The age problem worked both ways: 292 minors voted even though they were under the age of 18.

    More registered voters than adults. 7 states and Washington, D.C. have more registered voters than the number of adults legally eligible to vote. (Alaska, California, Colorado, D.C., Indiana, Kentucky, Maine, and Michigan.)

    Voting multiple times. The Government Accountability Institute found 8,471 cases of duplicate voting in just 21 states. A nationwide sweep would have uncovered at least 45,000 cases of people voting in more than one city or state.

    Thousands of phony addresses and names. More than 15,000 other people registered to vote using illegal addresses, like P.O. boxes, stores, and public buildings. 9,539 of those people voted in the general election.

    BREAKING: Joe Arpaio tells @NBCNews: “After talking with my wife, I’ve decided to announce my candidacy for the Republican nomination of the United States Senate seat, which is vacated by Senator Jeff Flake in Arizona.”

  243. Robbie says:

    Of course, there is the case that racist sheriff Joe hurts Ward and helps McSalley. Still, the Republican Party is broken when a clown like this guy thinks he can be a Senator. And make no mistake, Joe will get lots of airtime on Hannity and the other FoxNews prime time shows.

  244. Waingro says:

    Good point about McSally. I’ll assume without looking that Arizona is not a 50% + 1 primary state? Plurality wins?

  245. Tina says:

    That seat is difficult to defend given the unpopularity of flake.

  254. Waingro says:

    Just saw that McSally did indeed declare. Good. Hmm. Maybe Arpaio did us a favor!

    You did not?” O’Donnell repeated.

    “I did not,” Wolff confirmed.

    She then asked Wolff if he ever interviewed Vice President Mike Pence.

    “I did not,” Wolff said again.

    O’Donnell also noted Trump denied having ever been interviewed by Wolff.

    Included are any seats that any of the three of them has said is less than SAFE for either party.

    Also I have a running total showing the point at which Democrats would take control.

    In the last column is a score which reflects the rankings blended together. Safe = 3, Likely =2, Lean=1, and Tilt=0.5. The higher the number the safer the seat.

    McConnell should try to arrange an Operating MAGA Chaos get people to start donating to Ward’s campaign and send multiple platitudes her way to keep her in the race.

  292. mnw says:

    I question whether Arpaio will stick with his announced candidacy. I’m guessing he’ll drop out before the primary election.

    McSally’s initial problem is that immigration hawks (moi) don’t like her.

  293. mnw says:

    Thx, DW.

  294. Chicon says:

    Robbie – true that Trump has a tougher road in AZ than some other Republicans. He did win the state, though. He also won MI, PA & WI. How have previous Republican candidates done in those states?

  295. DW says:

    And again, the three toupees are notorious for giving Dems an advantage that never seems to materialize on election day. But even they are saying for the Dems to gain control, literally ALL of the tossups have to go Dem, and roughly half of the Lean GOP seats have to go Dem.

    Daca for the wall and more border security.

    It is a non starter with the amnesy wing of the r party and the drats

  300. Tina says:

    Three toupees?

    I like the nickname, but who are they?

  301. Chicon says:

    308 – did this agreement to sign a comprehensive plan include lots of funding for the wall?

    Also, NYCMike has been telling you for months that Trump will sign almost anything put in front of him. Some say he has no agenda. Then again, I also heard from the same people here he’s pushing the Pence agends.

  302. Wobbles says:

    – Did you notice Trump just told lawmakers he’d sign a comprehensive immigration reform plan if they send it to him?”

    Just to make it clear, if he signs it I will be against it.

  303. Wobbles says:

    Dimon is predicting 4 percent gdp.”

    I am against that too.

  304. Wobbles says:

    And chance you’ll stop believing in conspiracy theories?”

    Let me make it clear, I am not knocking conspiracy theories, I believe in all the ones advanced by the MSM and the moonbat sites.

  306. jason says:

    Wobbie jumped on the third rate “asst professor of psychology” BS “diagnosis” of Trump like a maggot on roadkill, but accuses other of believing in conspiracy theories?

    Give him the Chutzpah Award of the day.

  307. mnw says:

    I hope the DACA deal will end chain migration & the lottery. Those are far more important than the wall, imo.

    Guys

    Do u think cruisingtroll is more confident in his 2018 predictions than his 2016 predictions, or about the same?

  308. Wobbles says:

    Screw off, jason.

    This woman is from Yale. YALE.

    No, she never examined Trump and has no basis to make any diagnosis, but she supposedly reads the same left wing garbage sites I do, so she is VERY well informed.

    I am very comfortable overturning the results of the election based on her unassailable diagnosis.

  309. Wobbles says:

    Do u think cruisingtroll is more confident in his 2018 predictions than his 2016 predictions, or about the same?”

    Look, about as confident as I was when I predicted Hillary would carry Indiana.

    I was right too, she would have, except for Pence (did I tell you how much I JUST LOVE PENCE, I put him up there third after Jeb Bush and Jesus Christ).

  310. DW says:

    “Three toupees” was the nickname given to Charlie Cook, Larry Sabato, and Rothenberg. It started when we pointed out that Cook’s pic on his website clearly showed he was wearing a rug.

    So then we speculated the others did too. Last year Rothenberg passed his toupee on to Gonzales.

  311. mnw says:

    RE: AZ Senate:

    Before Arpaio announced, the last poll I saw had Rep. Sinesma (D-AZ) leading BOTH McSally & Ward by the same margin— 2 points.

    So clearly, the GOP has no shot at holding Flake’s seat! 2 points means certain DEM victory, LOOSAHS!

    Whereas McCaskill trailing Hawley by 4 points in MO? Certain DEM victory once again, LOOSAHS!

  312. jason says:

    A physical wall is not necessary.

    Trump should settle for a virtual wall, physical in some urban centers like already exists in several places, fences in others, and drones, surveillance, sensors, etc. in others.

    In exchange the dreamers without felony convictions get work permits and a path to citizenship in say 10 years on a merit/quota based system.

    It would be a great deal, the deadenders on both sides would hate it, what more do you want?

  313. Robbie says:

    I see HHR’s biggest fraud, Jason, has shown up. I always enjoy the contortions he goes through to support Trump (even on his facelift tweet) after spending the entire campaign season attacking Trump.

  314. jason says:

    LOOSAHS!”

    The Soviet Con man is back?

    How are things in the Marxist paradises of North Korea and Venezuela?

    I read “loosahs” here many times before the 2016 election.

    How did “Arizona is in the bag and now onwards to Texas” work out for you.

    Proud ObamaCON, the local Marxist turd, is the biggest “loosah” here.

  315. mnw says:

    So we just leave chain migration as is then?

    You realize that would mean the entire world population would gain the right to move to the U.S. legally in a very short time.

    – Poor, Jason. If you weren’t such a lying fraud, you would know the immigration issue doesn’t matter one bit to me. I do love to bring it up though because so many “real conservatives” in the forum seem to be little more than xenophobes.

  318. jason says:

    ‘after spending the entire campaign season attacking Trump”

    Yeah, but like most people with half a brain noticed, the campaign season ended in 2016. I know, you are still living the moment when Jeb Bush was the juggernaut clear the field suck up the money candidate that everyone would be foolish to run against. Have you considered psychiatric help? I hear there is a woman over at Yale that can diagnose you online.

    You are a pathological liar, you pushed the Trump is crazy meme here, and that meme is based on BS like that story.

    No free lunch here.

    End it.

  321. jason says:

    Zzzzzzz…irrelevant. The point is that whatever Trump would sign you would be against it.

    He could discover the cure to cancer and the key to fusion energy and you would be against.

    You are a small minded idiot. Deal with it.

  322. jason says:

    I think DACA is going through one way or the other.

    I hope it does, its an albatross around the GOP’s neck, and everyone knows the dreamers are not going to be deported.

    – What you are is a fraud and you show that every day. I opposed Trump because he was and is unfit as a person to serve as president. That he won an election doesn’t change that fact. But for you I guess it did because you are a fraud.

    I’m not surprised though that you swung all the way to the other end of the spectrum to be the one who even defends the Mika facelift tweet. You’re just following the lead of your hero Rubio who went from “Mr. NeverTrump” and mocking Trump’s dick size to one his best supporters.

    – Let’s get some facts straight here, lying fraud. I have been writing here since March I thought Trump was mentally unwell.

    My view had nothing to do with some story about a Yale professor that was written last week. So since again, it’s you who are the pathological liar because you can’t get your facts straight about what I have said and not said.

    On the other hand, I do know you were fervently anti-Trump and now you support him relentlessly.

    – And yet another instance of you being a lying fraud. I supported the tax plan, I supported Neil Gorsuch, and I supported the effort to repeal Obamacare. If simply opposed everything that he would sign, why did I support those things you lying fraud?

    Here’s the deal, lying fraud. I can support long held conservative policy goals and still find Trump to be unfit to be president. Maybe that’s a concept that’s too difficult for you to understand though.

  326. Chicon says:

    Bill of Love!

    Trump just told the Democrats with the cameras rolling that he is going to sign their “bill of love” on immigration reform. He’s saying, with the cameras rolling, that the Democrats are right on immigration and Republicans need to compromise with them.

    Does that word “of love” sound familiar?

    Amazing stu.ff. Trump is so pissed at Sloppy Steve that he is going full “Open Borders.”

  330. CG says:

    He also called for bringing back earmarks. Wow.

    And he sat right next to Dick Durbin throughout this whole meeting.

    NYC, The optics! The optics!

  331. Tina says:

  332. Chicon says:

    Long playback on the immigration discussion. Watch it, Robbie, and let us know where in there to find the clearly mentally unstable Donald Trump.

  337. CG says:

    Just wait, as usual.

  338. CG says:

    Durbin is from Springfield, not Chicago.

    He’s from the mnw part of the state not the CG part of the state.

  339. jason says:

    Does that word “of love” sound familiar?”

    Actually no, he didn’t say illegal immigration was an “act of love”.

    Only Jeb Bush would be that stupid.

  340. CG says:

    It’s the same damn thing. He wants to sign a bill of “love” for those in the country illegally.

  341. Chicon says:

    349 – geographically correct.

  342. Tina says:

    Well chicago meaning he is a crook

  343. CG says:

    Trump conceded in this meeting that the “wall” might not actually physically be a wall, but it’s all good as long as he gets to call it a “wall.”

    Democrats should put country first and go along with this.

  344. jason says:

    “I have been writing here since March I thought Trump was mentally unwell.

    Zzzzzz… just because the MSM and your pseudo-journalist leftist hacks have been saying it, you never came up with an original idea here in 10 years.

  345. Tina says:

    There is no concession, quit lying. He has always said a wall, unkess there is a geographical barrier.

    Tou can link to his speeches from 2015to 2016 to 2017.

    Where there is a large body of water or mountains, there woukd be no need for a physical wall.

  346. Tina says:

    The bill of love was a play on words.

    I knew exactly what he was saying and look how pissed turbin and rhe maryland stooge look

    Daca dies. Send the adults home.

  347. jason says:

    Trump conceded in this meeting that the “wall” might not actually physically be a wall, but it’s all good as long as he gets to call it a “wall.”

  348. CG says:

    They are cutting a deal on DACA this week. No physical wall. A “bill of love” Tina can cry all she wants.

    After that, he said that he will sign anything on comprehensive immigration reform that they send him. He said Republicans need to compromise on Democrats to get this done. He will do what GWB could not get done. No wonder Lindsey Graham has been kissing his ass lately. Apparently, Trump really wants to show that he is out of Bannon’s shadow.

  349. Tina says:

    Another lie from the clinton groupie.

  350. jason says:

    n the other hand, I do know you were fervently anti-Trump and now you support him relentlessly.”

    I was fervently anti-Trump.

    Now, where I think its in the interest of the country, I support him. Relentlessly.

    Where I don’t think its in the interest of the country, I don’t support him. Relentlessly.

    The campaign season ended in 2016.

    Trump is President. Deal with it.

    Oh, and don’t forget to GFY.

  351. CG says:

    And to top it all off, Trump said it would be better for the country if the Republican Congressional ban on earmarks was done away with.

    Pork barrel projects for all! (Not so sure that would be a good idea, in fact I know it wouldn’t)

    Fine with me.

    I think a DACA deal is in the interest of both the country AND the GOP.

    I am glad CG is supporting Trump on it.

  354. jason says:

    There is a simple test to see if the DACA deal is a good one.

    If the deadenders on both sides attack it, it’s probably good.

  355. CG says:

    I want what is best for the country out of “love.”

    If that SOB Trump is the one to sign it, so be it.

    It’s his fans that have to see their chiropractors to deal with the contortions they are going to have to go through to explain all this away.

  356. CG says:

    Ann Coulter is Tweeting that this confirms everything in Wolff’s book is true about Trump.

  357. Tina says:

    I am still laughing at how the jebots were played by that video.

  358. CG says:

    Coulter will be calling for the 25th Amendment by sundown.

  359. Tina says:

    No wall, no deal.

  360. Tina says:

    Wolfie Blitzkrieg

    This is great, trump is opening up negotiations.

    Trump, no wall and other security measures,no daca.

    Wolfie Blitzkrieg, this is not good.

  361. CG says:

    The physical wall that Mexico was going to pay for is done.

    They are going to do DACA without that and then when it comes to comprehensive immigration reform (the Concept Formerly Known as Amnesty), Trump is going to say, “I am the Wall. Illegal immigration is already down thanks to me. I am a big, beautiful stable wall.”)

    And that will be that.

  362. Tina says:

    In the redacted transcripts released by frakenstein, it smnoted that the fbi had a plant in the trump campaign,

    Can you soell papadope?

  363. Chicon says:

    372 – this is how negotiations happen in the world. The sides stake out strong positions and each side tries to get the other side to move more than they do. Very doubtful Trump actually thought he’d get 100% of everything.

    Grassley spox: It’s totally confounding that Senator Feinstein would unilaterally release a transcript of a witness interview in the middle of an ongoing investigation..Her decision was made without consulting Chairman Grassley

    Senile beotch.

  366. CG says:

    So, Grassley is saying that Feinstein should have let this play out so that the FBI could continue it’s investigation into Jared Kushner and others associated with Trump.

    I don’t know exactly what happened today, but he might be right.

  367. Tina says:

    They are still investigating, but this backfird because senile beotch heavily redacted it, when it was not a classified interview.

    Dumb beotch.

  368. Tina says:

    Quitt ns announcing he will likely run. Hopefully, he has worked on the glass jaw.

  369. Tina says:

    The drat media also says that the meeting with the drats further cuts the claims of the Wolffie fake book

    Quittens, please mke sure crowley is not a moderator for your ut senate debate. You will win, but it wa not your finest moment in a sheotty campaign.

  371. Tina says:

    Reporters asking whether bordr security means a wall, more manpower.

    Trum just outplayed the drats.

  372. Tina says:

    Virginia Sen. Mark Warner, the top Democrat on the Senate Intelligence Committee, which has also interviewed members of Fusion GPS, also appeared to back Grassley’s rationale last week. He said that he would like Fusion partners to appear for public testimony.

    Kick the beoth off the committee

  373. CG says:

    Building a physical “wall” would necessitate cuts in manpower, drones, and other enforcement methods.

    They are not going to build a “wall.” He can call it a “wall” and people can choose to play along with it for laughs if they want.

  374. CG says:

    Whatever Feinstein did, it seems like the situation for the Trump team is more serious than many wanted to admit and the “dossier” was not the reason the FBI had them under investigation.

  375. CG says:

    Maybe she wanted to take her cue from Julian Assange and Wikileaks.

    As we can all remember from the campaign, Donald Trump “loved Wikileaks.”

  376. Tina says:

    The amnesty wing of the r party has rebelled on daca.

    But two RINOs, Graham and McCarthy, kept reiterating that the wall, end of chain migration and end of the lottery were essential to DACA.

  377. Chicon says:

    CG, where’s Robbie?

  378. Tina says:

    THE media is now indicating that trump was very impressive in the 55minute open session.

    His negotiations.

    Yeaterday, they claimed he was mental.

    The drats are imploding.

  381. jason says:

    A virtual wall in sections that use sensors, drones, surveillance, fences, barriers, moats, etc. is still a wall IMO.

    In the end, if it makes the border more secure, you can call it what you want.

    I have always defended this approach.

    But again, if Ann Coulter and La Raza come out against it, it’s probably a good deal for both sides.

    I am laughing my arse off ow the drats were played..

    Also, why would you release a transcript that is heaviky redacted, in a session unclaaaified? It raises more questions as to why the fbi paid for the dossier.

  383. Tina says:

    I am for a wall too, but not one across the entire border. It would not be practical. Trump has said the same thing since day 1.

  384. Phil says:

    Trump looked pretty darned level headed and in control during the hour long immigration meeting. That said, I’m no doctor so I am waiting for Dr. Mika and Dr. Scarface to analyze the tape of the meeting and pronounce Trump as being mentally fit or unfit. I am deferring to the professionals.

    335 – are you able to acknowledge that the tax plan and Gorsuch would not have happened had Hillary won?

    – Of course neither of those thing would have happened, but I have said I don’t think those two things were enough of reason to vote for someone I find to be a rotten person or someone who I believe will do great harm to the Republican Party.

  386. jason says:

    Also, as I said before many times, EVERY single candidate for President defended some sort of legalization for illegals (i.e., amnesty) including Trump.

    Only the immigration deadenders ever thought Trump was not interested in making a deal on Daca and even on immigration as a whole.

    I can think of no greater harm to the GOP than Scalia’s replacement being a young communist who would sit on the bench for the next 30+ years, instead of conservative Gorsuch for the next 30+

    Does that word “of love” sound familiar?”
    Actually no, he didn’t say illegal immigration was an “act of love”.
    Only Jeb Bush would be that stupid.

    – Only Marco Rubio would be so stupid as to use his shot take down Trump by talking about Trump’s hand size and Trump wetting his pants.

    those two things were enough of reason to vote for someone I find to be a rotten person or someone who I believe will do great harm to the Republican Party.”

    Hillary is a rotten person who would not only do great harm to the R party but to the country. The consequences of her being elected would have been disastrous for conservatives, Republicans, libertarians and the country as a whole.

    Hillary was never “better” than Trump. Never. In fact in many ways, she was a lot worse.

    I couldn’t vote for either one of them. But now that Trump is President, he has got a new slate. And I like him a lot more as President than I did as a candidate, mainly because the really stupid things he advocated as a candidate haven’t happened.

  400. CG says:

    In fairness, I think a lot of people could sit through a 55 minute meeting if they knew they had the rest of their afternoon and evening free and clear for the “Gorilla Channel.”

    Trump probably just has the same mental/psychological issues he has had his whole adult life. It’s not like he acts in a way that should surprise anyone.

    – As usual, the lying fraud is lying. I came to my own conclusions about Trump’s mental acuity by watching Trump in action. It had ZERO to do with any reporter and don’t remember reporters openly discussing Trump’s mental stability almost a year ago, but they certainly are now. Why? Because of Trump’s erratic behavior.

    Where I don’t think its in the interest of the country, I don’t support him. Relentlessly.
    The campaign season ended in 2016.
    Trump is President. Deal with it.
    Oh, and don’t forget to GFY.

    – This where you fraudulence comes into sharp focus. During the campaign you said he was unfit to serve as president. How does winning change a person’s fitness? Answer. It doesn’t. But being the lying fraud you are, you’ve decided to support him because he has a R next to his name.

    Trump’s been unstable his whole life. His father did quite a number on him. Drove DJT’s older brother to an early death. It’s probably already too late for Don Jr. and Eric. I just hope Barron escapes this circle. (yes, Hillary’s father was sort of the same way, but with a lot less money and influence. Her brothers are messed up too)

    Jason didn’t seem to care whether Trump had an R next to his name when he didn’t support him during the campaign, Robbie. As far as his support for Trump after Trump entered the WH he clearly said he’d support him when he could and oppose him when he didn’t agree.

    – Get a grip? Ha! Either Trump was unfit or he’s not. If the lying fraud thinks he’s fit now, then he was lying during the campaign when he said otherwise. If the lying fraud thinks Trump is still unfit, then he’s supporting some who’s unfit simply because he has a R next to his name.

    That’s right, Robbie. Nothing stable about Trump. I know because I saw it on Morning Joe.

    Robbie has made the issue transformation from Russia to Trump’s mental health very smoothly.
    Your MSM masters must be impressed.

    – And you have parroted the FoxNews, Rush Limbaugh talking points very smoothly as well. (If you make a dumb statement, so can I)

    Ever heard of two things being true at once, Phil? I have and I believe two things.

    First, I think members of Trump’s campaign (not Trump) stupidly reached out to dubious sources who claimed to have the emails Russia hacked from the DNC. On top of that, I think Trump fired Comey to end the Russia investigation (that’s what he told Lester Holt) and I think his goal was clearly to shut down the investigation. And because of that, it’s clear Robert Mueller is looking into whether Trump obstructed justice with his actions.

    I also believe Trump is mentally unwell and have believed so for quite some time. His behavior has often been erratic and he has continually done things that have been self defeating and that no other person I can imagine would do.

    Neither view makes the other impossible.

  449. CG says:

    InfoWars is now saying that Trump is part of the “Globalist Luciferian Agenda.”

  462. Tina says:

    Why is goober becoming right wing hawk on illegal immigration?

  468. CG says:

    Trump cutting a deal with the Democrats on immigration allows Republicans to engage in lip service to the right-wing on this so they do not get blamed.

    It’s Nixon going to China on steroids, to get Trump to do the “dirty work” on this Bill of Love. McConnell and Ryan are smiling.

    Either Trump gets blamed, or his apologists continue to set aside their everlasting souls to capitulate to Trump once again.

    Reading the news about Steve Bannon takes me back to the early days of the Trump presidency when I said he was a terrible influence on Trump and was hurting his administration. Of course, NYCmike sprang to Bannon’s defense and challenged me repeatedly that Bannon was a bad guy who had bungled the initial travel ban.

    – Supporting Trump really has caused you to say some dumb things. You know better than to claim I’m a leftist. Normally, I would say you should be ashamed of yourself, but I’m not sure Trumpers can do that.

  486. Chicon says:

    484 – why would you give him another chance, when you said he was unfit during the campaign? Did he change to fit?

    Isn’t that what you asked Jason just a bit upthread?

    Now you’re saying you tried his approach, while berating him for it. Pretty consistent.

    Now you’re saying you tried his approach, while berating him for it. Pretty consistent.

    – Because I hoped I was wrong about my view of Trump. I hoped the way he acted was nothing more than an act. Turns out I was right all along and that’s too bad. Had he found a way to control his worst impulses, he could have been a successful and POPULAR president. Now, he’s unpopular and the Republican House will pay the price.

  492. Mr.Vito says:

    Tina thinks Mr. Ed was an actual guy in a horse costume.

  495. DW says:

    454 – not me. I am a realist. Even the leftist three toupees say the Dems are not on track to flip the house. Look at the numbers again. Dems would have to win ALL of the tossups. Tossup means its a coin-toss.

    Look at the chart. There are NINETEEN tossups. Go get yourself a quarter, flip it and call heads. If heads comes up, flip it again, saying heads again. Keep going until you get 19 heads in a row. If you ever get tails, you have to start over.

    Then once you get 19 heads in a row, then you have reproduced the Dems winning all the tossups.

    Then having won all 18 tossups, they have to win 8 seats that are classified as lean R.

    Given that the generic ballot is tightening after the tax bill, and given that the economy is doing well, I just don’t see the numbers for a Dem house takeover. Of course things could change, but what is going on right now, I don’t see the numbers.

    And again, if the three toupees don’t see it, then for sure I don’t. I will never forget 2010 when the toupees called for minimal GOP house gains, and I predicted around 70. In the end it was +66 for the GOP.

  496. Tina says:

    No, i think you are an idiot.

  498. Chicon says:

    504 – The point is that you berated Jason for giving Trump another chance, since Jason had pronounced him unfit before the election. You said he was a fraud because of it.

    Then, just moments later, you tell someone you tried to give Trump another chance, too. Does this make you a fraud, too?

  499. Tina says:

    Robbie, just do a mea culpa on your weird period of wanting to give Trump a second chance, and you will be able to put that aside.

    jason will have to deal with why he tries to shame Bitterlaw for going to church because jason hates the Pope, while jason insists that Republicans should not oppose Trump.

  501. CG says:

    Robbie can also attempt to credibly claim that so much has happened since that specific date when he had his moment of realization that there should not be an excuse.

    I just like that I have remained consistent on the person from Day 1. I guess MD and Author have as well, but they became Democrats.

    – No. I berate Jason because he, after years of claiming to be a guy who doesn’t support idiot candidates or officeholders, has chosen to ignore all the things he’s always criticized and just chosen to look the other way. That and Jason and I have berated each other for a decade here.

    The Democrats have not sniffed 50% in gallup’s Party ID since Romney lost.

    – Independents gave Republicans their majorities in 2010, 2014, and the presidency in 2016. They are strongly against Trump now. They are the majority makers. It’s much the same scenario that gave Democrats their majorities in 2006.

  506. Mr.Vito says:

    520 That is all baked into the history of the gallup poll’s reliability based on the D percent… in every one of those years. It predicted all of those.

    Just as I pointed out all of the last year and a half. As long as we have Congress, Trump is the better choice over Hillary.

    I am not understanding your glee. If he does just sign a clean DACA bill, which you agree with, and does not insist on chain migration or something substantial in return, you will still not support him.

    I looked up the actual quotes.

    “You folks are going to have to come up with a solution. And if you do, I will sign that solution.”

    “A clean DACA bill to me is to take care of the 800,000 people. We take care of that, and we also take care of security. And then we can go to comprehensive [immigration reform] later on.”

    “Maybe all of you should start thinking about going back to a form of earmarks. I hear so much about earmarks and how there was a great friendliness when you had earmarks.”

  535. CG says:

    What does “support” him mean?

    Will I vote for him? Hell no.

    I hope he does right for the country though in the time he has left as President.

    “And then we can go to comprehensive [immigration reform] later on.””

    -I don’t agree with this. Later? Why would the Democrat Party negotiate at all, once DACA is a done deal?

    Of course, if the Republicans are NOT united in opposition to this approach, then once again, THE VOTERS will be left to choose between one and the same when it comes to immigration.

    If that happens, I may join Robbie surfing the waves.

    mnw,

    Dunno.
    The legislators are asking questions of the head of DHHR during interim meetings just prior to the 2018 session beginning on Wednesday.

    They are trying to nail down the reason why the spike….

  639. Cash Cow TM says:

    “…many states are doubling down on taxing the rich. Since the recession at least six states — many of them home to the nation’s wealthiest households — have passed a so-called millionaire’s tax or raised rates on their richest earners. There’s likely to be more: This coming November, voters in Massachusetts will decide on a millionaire’s tax, while the Democrats who control the New Jersey Legislature have said a tax hike on high-earners is their top priority this year.

    This increasing reliance on taxpayers’ incomes hasn’t been entirely intentional. It’s partly a side effect of the sales tax base shrinking and becoming a less effective revenue stream as more consumers buy goods tax-free online or spend their money on tax-free services. Since 1960, states have gone from collecting about 60 percent of their revenue from sales taxes and 10 percent from income taxes to 45 percent from sales and 35 percent from income.

    Meanwhile, the prospect of lower rates under federal tax reform has taxpayers acting rather unpredictably. Income tax revenue across all states was down 4 percent in April 2017, compared to the previous year, according to the Nelson A. Rockefeller Institute of Government. Although many states had forecast declines in April and May 2017 (the biggest months for income tax returns), the revenue losses were worse than expected. This may be because wealthy taxpayers were shifting income out of 2016, in anticipation of getting a lower tax rate if they waited a year.”

    In California about 45% of all income tax is paid by the to 1% of income earners; with an average income of $1.6 million. 90% of all income tax is paid by the top 1/5 percentage, who earn an average of $238,000. About 2/3 of the budget is made up of income tax.

    NEW BRUNSWICK, N.J. – It’s hard to imagine exactly who New Jersey’s pugnacious governor thinks is going to miss him when he leaves office next week, but it surely won’t be the residents of the Garden State, according to the latest Rutgers-Eagleton Poll. When asked late last November about the end of Christie’s tenure, just 5 percent of residents said they are going to miss Christie when he’s gone – only about 350,000 out of the approximately 7 million adults who live in the Garden State. On the other hand, ten times this number said they will be glad to see him go and “don’t let the door hit you on the way out.”

    Quotes Wikipedia about McSally”

    “McSally became the first woman in U.S. history to fly a combat aircraft into enemy territory when she flew into Iraq in support of the United Nations no-fly zone enforcement.

    McSally was represented by the Rutherford Institute in a successful 2001 lawsuit against the Department of Defense, challenging the military policy that required U.S. and U.K. servicewomen stationed in Saudi Arabia to wear the body-covering abaya when traveling off base in the country.[7][8] At the time of the lawsuit McSally, as a Major (O-4), was the highest ranking female fighter pilot in the U.S. Air Force. Her suit alleged “the regulations required her to send the message that she believes women are subservient to men.”

    McSally voted in favor of the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act of 2017.[30] She cited the need for tax reform and believes that the act will “put our economy into afterburner.” She discounted polls showing the bill as being unpopular among voters calling it “hysteria” and “misinformation” and that “the best counter to that is when people see money in their paychecks.”

    McSally has voted with her party in 96% of votes so far in the current session of Congress and voted in line with President Trump’s position in 100% of the votes.

    McSally is a triathlete.”

    Poll: 33% of NFL fans ‘purposely stopped watching’ this season

    That group, which the survey labeled as “boycotting,” was asked why, and was given multiple options. Note: Respondents were allowed to select multiple answers; they were not asked which was the biggest factor, just which factors contributed.

    They answered as follows: 32% said they stopped watching or attending NFL games “in support of Donald Trump”; 22% said “in solidarity with players kneeling”; 13% said “no interest in the teams playing”; 12% said “in support of Colin Kaepernick”; and 11% said “news about traumatic brain injuries among players.” Another 8% said “games are boring.” 46% chose “some other reason.”

    The results also show an interesting difference between male and female respondents: more men said they turned away from the NFL in support of Trump (35% to 25%), while more women said they did it in support of the players kneeling (30% to 17%) or in support of Kaepernick (17% to 10%).

    German Chancellor Angela Merkel’s public support for another full term dwindled in a poll, with opposition running high in the party she wants as partner for her next government.

    A YouGov survey published Wednesday said 47 percent of Germans want Merkel to step down before the end of the four-year mandate her party won in September, up from 36 percent in October. It’s a sign that the political stalemate since the election may be working against the acting chancellor before preliminary coalition talks with the Social Democrats begin on Jan. 7.

    Among SPD voters, 64 percent want Merkel to serve only part of her term, according to the poll for German newswire Deutsche Presse-Agentur. The resistance underscores how difficult it will be for SPD head Martin Schulz to persuade party members to back another coalition with Merkel, who has said she intends to serve a full term.

    The transcripts revealed the reasons that Republicans have been so determined to dismiss the “Steele dossier” and the other information put together by Fusion GPS. They did so because the information collected by Fusion confirmed what investigations at the FInancial Times made public months ago — Donald Trump was deeply involved with Russian mobsters, who were largely responsible for his finances. In fact, much of Trump’s claimed wealth was simply inexplicable, apparently unmoored from any legitimate source. Donald Trump, successful real estate tycoon, was a fiction.

    – I think Trump is impulsive. So you’re right there are no guarantees. If McSally says something that offends Trump, he could suddenly endorse Ward on Twitter. If Hannity tells him the base supports Ward, Trump might go with her. I’m also not sure Bannon won’t be part of the circle of trust again by August of this year.

    Trump had the choice between a Marxist hack and a scumbag who had no respect for the rule of law.

    And by the way, molesting a 14 year old is not a politically motivated hit job. Leigh Corfmann is suing good ole Roy by the way.

    And they didn’t torpedo her campaign, that is a bunch of BS, in fact they gave her (wrongly) a clean bill of health.

    The “Hillary lost because of the Comey letter” is one of the biggest canards the MSM wants to sell to their gullible morons like you, not surprising you regurgitate it here.

    Hillary lost because 70% of the country viewed her as untrustworthy and dishonest, way before any Comey letter.

    – The reopening of the email case 10 days before the election hurt Clinton. In the RCP average on October 29, she had a 47.1% to 42.5% lead. The race narrowed over the last ten days because that story reminded so many why they didn’t like Clinton and it provided just the margin needed for Trump to thread the needle in the electoral college. Without Comey reopening the case, Clinton would have won.

  782. DW says:

    802 – Spot on. The only reason Hillary lost is what she found when she looked directly into her bathroom mirror.

While there were a few who spoke up about the Comey effect, the comments came from hack panelists. The more core journalists like Tapper, Todd, and others were very quick to dismiss Hillary’s problems as much deeper than Comey.

    Todd in particular was adamant. Her problem was she had no message and no appeal, and was tone deaf to those who tried to tell her.

    Were all of the woman who waited decades to tell their harassment stories wrong, or were they simply afraid to do so given the way claims like theirs were often handled in the past?

    Also, Luther Strange’s campaign tried to track down these stories about good ole Roy, but they weren’t able to confirm the before the election. I doubt you’d have had a problem with them had Strange used them to discredit good ole Roy.

  787. jason says:

    Unmitigated garbage, spoon fed by the MSM hacks to morons like you as an excuse for Hillary losing.

    Hillary was already losing ground and the momentum changing before the email letter, and in fact she was helped by the letter where they “exonerated” her, she actually gained ground in the last weekend before the election.

    Again, Trump could have done nothing. Instead, he endorsed someone who as credibly accused of molesting a 14 year old girl.

  789. Chicon says:

    805 – Hillary won the popular vote by 2.1%, so the lead went from 4.6 to 2.1. What is the moe on the RCP amalgamation of polls? Was there even real movement? If so, what is the evidence this movement was because of the reopening of the email probe?

    I don’t know, but its irrelevant.

    The timing stunk, and nobody’s personal or political career should be destroyed over unverified 40 year old allegations, especially when offered by politically motivated sources like the WAPO and Gloria All Red.

    And yes, if Strange had come up with unverified accusations, I would have thought the same thing.

    That is the point YOU don’t get, that this could easily be done next time to a candidate YOU support, and while I wanted to get rid of Moore also, there is a right way and a wrong way to do it. Sometimes the short term expediency is not good for the long term.

    Robbie, what is the average number of House seats lost by a new President’s party in the next mid-term? Say, since 1960.

    – With any other Republican as president and an economy doing as well as this one is now, there would be no danger of losing the House. This is 100% a function of Trump’s behavior and how it is casting a pall on the Republican Party.

  813. Phil says:

    The media is a problem, Robbie. One of my gripes against Jeb. He for some reason refused to recognize this even tho he had watched the MSM absolutely destroy his brother during W’s second term.

    If you are a Republican you can’t let the MSM use you as a punching bag and not fight back.

  814. Robbie says:

    “with his anti-immigrant platform.”
    -Also, Trump is NOT anti-immigrant.
    He is AGAINST illegal immigration, and is against NON-ENFORCEMENT OF LAWS on the books (or at least talks as if he is, and because people believe him, talk may actually work, in this case).

    – Pete Wilson said the same thing. How’d that work out for Republicans in California?

  815. Paul says:

    1994 Dems -52
    2006 GOP -30
    2010 Dems -63
    2014 Dems -13

  816. Phil says:

    Doubt Trump runs anyway.

    – You’re right in this sense. Conservative media did destroy Jeb and, along with Trump’s attacks, he had no way to fight back.

    – he doesn’t strike me as a quitter, but who knows.

  819. Chicon says:

    Paul – first term only, given that this is Trump’s first term.

    So, 1962, 1970, 1978, 1982, 1990, 1994, 2002, 2010.

  820. Paul says:

    I’ll say something that might put my Soros check in jeopardy…..

    I think if Trump is impeached by the Dem controlled house, he’ll be in even better shape to win in 2020.

  821. Robbie says:

    Domenico Montanaro?
    @DomenicoNPR

    There are more Republicans retiring than for any party, in any cycle since 1994,

  822. Chicon says:

    841 – he should have just Twitter.

  823. Chicon says:

    Used Twitter.

  824. Paul says:

    CHICON: Is this better?

    1978 DEM -15
    1982 GOP -26
    1990 GOP -8
    1994 Dems -52
    2002 GOP +8
    2010 Dems -63

    2002 is an outlier because GWB was at war and at over 60% approval.

  825. Paul says:

    With the 2002 outlier, it is still an average of 26 seats. That is more than the Dems need to take the House. Without 2002, the average is 32.8.

  826. Paul says:

    1946 DEM -45
    1954 GOP -18
    1962 DEM -4
    1970 GOP -12
    1978 DEM -15
    1982 GOP -26
    1990 GOP -8
    1994 Dems -52
    2002 GOP +8
    2010 Dems -63

    Average = 29.375

    Feinstein excluded exhibits that were attached to the Glenn Simpson testimony & redacted highly relevant info about which FBI agents were working w/Clinton-funded operatives to investigate the Trump campaign. h/t @MZHemingway

    We know why she redacted this stuff, it was not classified. She is the gift that keeps on giving. Way to go frankenstein.

  829. Chicon says:

    Paul – thanks. This gives a bit of perspective. Given these numbers, even JEB! would be expected to lose the House. How will we be able to determine that losing the House is because of Trump? Heck, even Reagan lost 26 seats.

  830. Paul says:

    The silver lining for the Trumpers, is that under GOP presidents average is 11.2.

    But unfortunately, Trump isn’t a GOP president 🙂

  831. Chicon says:

    854 – why is the average so different for the GOP?

  832. DW says:

    Redistricting is the factor often forgotten in discussions of historical data on mid-temp flips. Dems have been making small gains in this regard since 2010, like the CA university professor some unelected judge appointed who just gave Dems a free seat in VA.

    But again as I look at the list I posted, Dems would have to get ALL tossups, and then 8 or so seats currently Lean R. Another aspect to the list is the diversity of those seats. This is not a list of seats where all of them have a huge cache of inner-city voters they can drag to the polls.

    Given the diversity of all these seats, and given the strong economic numbers all around us, I don’t see a flip of control happening.

  833. Chicon says:

    DW – what do you think the impact will be of the NC gerrymandering case?

  834. DW says:

    857 – ask Wes when he is around.

  835. NYCmike says:

    “– Question. If Trump is impeached by the House, will he still be re-nominated by the Republican Party?”

    -It depends on what he is impeached for.

    If it is for hurt feelings, he should be re-nominated, IF he continues to govern the way he has governed the last year.

  836. NYCmike says:

    “– You’re right in this sense. Conservative media did destroy Jeb and, along with Trump’s attacks, he had no way to fight back.”

    -Sounds like my pinky toe…….

    Report on the WV House of Rep seats for Nov. 2018:

    WV CD 1 Safe R (McKinley) prolly 60-40

    WV CD 2 Safe R (Mooney) prolly 57-43

    WV CD 3 Likely R (Open due to Rep. Evan Jenkins running for U.S. Senate R Primary) prolly 55-45

  838. DW says:

    Gap since tax bill passed has been 7. Not enough to flip the house.

    https://pjmedia.com/rogerlsimon/donald-trump-grownup-room-immigration/

    -One of the comments attributes this quote to Trump, from his earlier days “”I try to learn from the past,but i plan for the future by focusing exclusively on the present. Thats where the fun is”.”

    That is a pretty wise way to look at things, imho.

  840. Cash Cow TM says:

    Out of WV’s 55 counties, how many in this red state have more registered Rs than registered Ds?

    Answer…

    13
    *********************
    Statewide party registration is D 43 and R 32 with rest are Indy, Mountain, Libertarian or something else.
    ****************
    WV recently removed over 86,403 from voter registration rolls due to individual voters being dead, convicted felons, duplicate registrations, etc.
