    For those who think Trump will win MN because he barely lost it last time, GWB also narrowly lost the state in 2000. The next two elections were a linear progression upward for the Dem presidential candidates. Republicans also did far better in the state in 2002 than in 2018.

    This is a bit of historical context for those who think Trump is a lock for reelection because Clinton and Obama had similarly bad first midterms before winning re-election.

    NYC – Federal employees would never work hard enough to maintain some large scale, overarching Deep State. A few bad actors? Sure. Anything beyond that would require working past 4:30 and on the weekends. They also would retire at 55 so there is in no long term continuing plan. Finally, isn’t the point of a Deep State that nobody knows about it? If people are talking about a Deep State, there is no Deep State.

    Conservatives win the most votes and gain 32 seats in the Canada election but Trudeau survives with a minority government, losing about 30 seats.

    The leftist NDP got slaughtered, the separatists gained over 20 seats, the Greens went from 2 to 3 seats.

    That is the election in a nutshell.

  17. SanDiegoCitizen says:

    When the leftist Guardian newspaper comes down hard on the Extinction Rebellion, you know there is a problem. The truant Greta and Barefoot Harry needs to come to the rescue.

    “Passengers on the packed platform, sensing they’re now going nowhere, react furiously. A voice can be heard shouting: “I need to get to work! I have to feed my kids!” One man, boosted by the crowd, grabs for the protester’s legs; the protester appears to kick out towards his head. The protester is white. The man below him is black. The protester is quickly dragged down into a surging crowd, rescued only by the intervention of other passengers and a London Underground worker. And suddenly, we are a long way from cheering scenes of giant pink octopuses being escorted down Whitehall, or grey-haired pensioners submitting courteously to arrest.
    * * * *
    Although Extinction Rebellion supporters will differ over how far to push it, the original model is more of a revolutionary than a democratic one. And the clashes at Canning Town feel like an early warning of what can happen when the idea of public consent is brushed aside by people convinced they don’t have time for all that.”

  24. jason says:

    Was just going to make that point myself.’

    Conservatives got more votes, but won a bunch of ridings by huge margins in the west while losing a lot of close votes in riding rich Ontario.

  25. Wes says:

    You ignore two things in your analysis of MN, Lisa:

    1) The good economy in MN predates Trump and is something local Dems have received most credit for.

    2) Trump is incredibly unpopular in MN, especially in the state’s primary population centers.

    It doesn’t look as if Trump has much of a chance to win there to me.

  26. jason says:

    Trudeau will have to move even farther left with an alliance with either the NDP or the separatists, so it could provide an opening for the conservatives next time around.

  27. jason says:

    I think MN is doable for Trump this time around, but it cannot be taken in isolation. Trump is not going to do badly in OH, MI and WI and win in MN. But if the election goes the way it did in 2016, with Trump competitive in the upper midwest, MN would be the state I would pick to flip. 2018 notwithstanding it has been trending R in Presidential elections and Trump came very close in 2016.

  28. Victrc says:

    According to Bloomberg Silicon Valley is all in for Buttigieg. This will mean favorable articles and placement on Facebook, in searches, etc so maybe it’s time to take him seriously.

    In a sign of just how far left liberals have pushed the perceptions in this country, he is perceived as a moderate by Dems. I kid you not. This is a moderate to them:

    Supports green new deal
    Would end fracking
    Eliminate electoral collage
    Keep tuition for rich kids but make it free for minorities
    Single payer government control of healthcare
    More gun control laws including gun buy backs
    Abortion up to, and after birth of child
    Expanding judicial including Supreme Court packing and adding more federal judges to create more “balance”
    Free healthcare for illegals
    Supports DACA and open borders
    Raise taxes
    Implement. More federal regulations on job creators
    Supports Iran and will re-institute deal
    Supports Venezuela and opening more dialogue with them
    Government should tackle racial inequality with funding
    End and constitutionally ban capital punishment

    Yeah…this guy is a centrist as much as I am the starting power forward for the Spurs.

    So the question is….can he beat Trumo?

  29. Phil says:

    As far left as Obama was in 2008, he didn’t go anywhere near that stuff as a candidate.

  30. VictrC says:

    Phil…exactly, and now he is seen as a centrist.

    This doesn’t even bring up the fact that he has little to no experience, and his record as mayor of South Bend is spotty at best.

  31. jason says:

    I think Mayor Butt is a lightweight.

    Full disclosure, I thought the same of Obama.

  32. Phil says:

    Yes, let’s get rid of fracking. I mean, who in the hell wants us to be energy independent. That’s crazy.

  33. VictrC says:

    But but….Big Oil. That is corporations and they are bad. And Those corporations are in Texas and Ohio and lots of states that are red, so they are racist and bad.

    That is what you can expect to hear non stop for the next 12 months.

    Jason….I agree with you, I also thought Obama was a lightweight and look what happened, its why I bring him up now. With the support of social media giants, search engines, tech companies, he’s going to get copious amounts of free positive press.

    And let’s say it, because its a “thing”, how will being gay help or hurt him. In today’s America most people could care less about it, and I honestly don’t think it would cause him to lose a state…UNTIL he started condemning Christians who question it. If he had just said I am who I am, people would move on to the list above, but he started calling Christians who didn’t support his sexuality as not being real Christians. That might hurt him.

    Well it turns out that the Chinese Economy if far worse than they have claimed. All of sudden they are talking about positive moves towards a trade deal. Many folks are saying that their 6% growth figure is bogus and that they are on the ropes. I don’t want to defend tariffs because I believe in free trade. But if a deal comes through, I think one could argue that tariffs are not productive but can be destructive when used as an economic weapon.

  38. Hugh says:

    Foxnews. Brett B says word is democrat are shocked with what they are hearing. Yawn. Wish we had an honest press so we could present the other side of the argument but in America that is dead.

  39. dblaikie says:

    Typical doublespeak, dems say they are shocked with what they are hearing, but reps in the hearing saying most of what is coming out exonerates Trump. My only observation is that if the former was true, they would have opened up these meetings long before.

  40. dblaikie says:

    What bugs me about what Brett says (Unlike most I do have some respect for him) is that he doesn’t go on to say republicans are shocked with they are hearing because it exonerates Trump.

  47. Hugh says:

    If I stress if this gets to the senate where team trump can put up a defense for all to see on tv. The dems will get crushed. With likely voters in states that matter this already is not a winner with nothing but 24/7 news pushing an impeachment narrative. I’m not sure how Nancy plays this.

    Confirmed: Bill Taylor’s opening statement was 15 pages long and led many in the room listening to his testimony to sigh and gasp as he described efforts to tie an investigation of the 2016 election interference to a White House meeting and aid being released to Ukraine.

  52. dblaikie says:

    Don’t be surprised if a result of the Canadian election is that the Western Provinces are going to demand more autonomy. Their are far more connected to the Pacific Northwest than to Ontario and Québec.

  53. jason says:

    Trump should have negotiated a “cease fire” BEFORE pulling troops.

    Negotiating a cease fire for a fire he himself caused is like lighting a pool of gasoline and then standing around saying “hey look, I have a hand fire extinguisher here”.

  54. Victrc says:

    Who is Bill Taylor. Sorry for the ignorance

    Why is trying an investigation of 2016 election to aid and a meeting bad? The democrats have been investigating it for three years through and via all methods possible. Isn’t the Oresident charged with trying to investigate interferencenin our elections. That’s what he was doing apparently.

    actually, since 2016 the economy is way up

    not surprisingly you only see data on wikipedia through 2016, but in fact the gdp growth has been up over 2.5% since trump came in … about a point higher than under obama. buildings are going up everywhere.

    as for trump being unpopular, not so much actually. perhaps people are more polite here than ny, but trump is not mentioned much except by the leftist types. unless you are antifa or somalian, it just is not a big topic.

    Centrist Democratic donors are realizing, with horror, that their best bets for fending off the left are now a senescent, cash-poor gaffe-machine — and a college-town mayor with fewer black supporters than Donald Trump.

    Nevada – Trump lost by 27K votes. Gary Johnson got 37K votes. NONE OF THESE and 2 others got 36K. Johnson voters won’t think about Trump when other candidate will be as leftist as they are telling us?

    New Mexico would need EVERY Gary Johnson voter to go Trump, so probably not going to happen.
