    Warnock Leads Walker By Double Digits, Kemp/Abrams Tied in GA

    A new poll from Quinnipiac University shows Trump-endorsed Herschel Walker now trailing the sitting incumbent Democratic US Senator Raphael Warnock by double digits in the state of Georgia.

    US SENATE – GEORGIA (Quinnipiac)
    Raphael Warnock (D-inc) 54%
    Herschel Walker (R) 44%

    I think Republicans are going to look back on this rac ein November as one hell of a wasted opportunity to pick up a US Senate seat, especially if they manage to fall one seat short again of getting a majority. Meanwhile at the gubernatorial level, despite Warnock’s dominating lead in the US Senate race, his fellow Democrat Stacey Abrams can only manage to get into a tie with Republican Brian Kemp.

    GOVERNOR – GEORGIA (Quinnipiac)
    Brian Kemp (R-inc) 48%
    Stacey Abrams (D) 48%

    This poll was done June 23-27 among 1497 registered voters.

      Not a big fan of RV polls. Still, Walker was ahead before and is now probably tied. He needs to run as if he really is 10 points down to him up turnout and oust Georgia’s loathsome Senator.

      Time for the EXPERT of all things, except all things gay to which I defer to LisaB, and all things Hispanic, to which I defer to our resident Liz Cheney Republican EML, a.k.a. The Hispanic Whisperer.

      Here’s the deal! No matter who becomes the GOP nominee in 2024, the MSM, Big Tech, and libs will excoriate and slander as Satan himself.

      They will lie, exaggerate, manipulate, and attack 24/7.

      GWB, was not combative, mean, or petty but the MSM and libs turned him into someone that many despised only 3rd to Hitler and Mussolini.

      With Trump, no explanation needed, as they attacked him on everything 24/7 and openly and actively sought to destroy his presidency.

      The same will be done to DeSantis who is by political nature a combative guy as well that will push the buttons on his opponents. Only he is more articulate than Trump by no less despised. If anyone here thinks a DeSantis presidency is going to be any less combative than a Trump presidency, you’re delusional.

      The MSM, Big Tech, and libs HATE DeSantis! If he is the 2024 nominee or POTUS winner, expect the same chaos in DC as with Trump because the Dems and libs thrive on creating such an environment so they have red meat to toss to their lefty base.

      In WV, Walt was in the legislature in 2015/2016 and voted for a bill that passed that limited abortion to the first 20 weeks of pregnancy.

      But there is some confusion in WV as to what the laws are concerning abortion now, and there is a very old law on the books that bans abortion entirely. Gov. Justice, the WV AG and WV legislative lawyers are researching all parts of code that deal with the abortion issue. gov. Justice says he will call a special session on the issue and they will legislatively get things ironed out.

      PERSONALLY, Walt (who is pro-life) says he does not see how you can have a state abortion law that does not make limited exceptions and allow some abortions for 1. rape, 2. incest 3. life of the mother 4. viability of the fetus.

      Those exemptions to banning abortion seem reasonable to me.

    13. Cash Cow TM says:

      I must say I agree with NYC.

      The TV and radio news reporting on the SCOTUS decision to overturn FEDERAL protection on Roe v. Wade has been disappointing.

      I have not seen/heard ANY reporting that informs the public that STATE laws on abortion were NOT overturned by SCOTUS and abortions–even partial birth abortions in a number of states–are still fully legal to be done.

      In many other pro-life states, there will be some LIMITS on abortion (no abortion after 16 weeks, 20 weeks, 22 weeks or whatever # of weeks–depending on the specific STATE laws.

      In an interview with ABC last night, here is Liz Cheney’s reply to the Secret Service testimony from The Hutch. Hint: Cheney’s credibility is now totally gone.)

      Here’s the Karl-Cheney exchange:

      KARL: Did you seek testimony from Tony Ornato or Robert Engel to corroborate or to refute what she said?

      CHENEY: I don’t want to get into too many details. The committee has spoken to both Mr. Ornato and Mr. Engel, and we welcome additional testimony, under oath, from both of them, and from anybody else in the Secret Service who has information about any of these issues. …

      KARL: Do you expect that that testimony will be live testimony under oath, like [Hutchinson’s] testimony, and for the world to see? How is that going to happen?

      CHENEY: Well, we have been working with the Secret Service; we’ve interviewed, as I said, a number of individuals in the Secret Service. We will continue to do so. And it is important that their testimony be under oath.

    26. Bitterlaw says:

      Jason – If Trump runs in 2024 and you want Trump to be the nominee, why not register to vote in 2024 so you can vote for him?

    27. jason says:

      There was no evidence Trump could beat Hillary till it happened.”

      wes does bring up an interesting point.

      Actually, when Trump announced, I didn’t immediately dismiss him because I didn’t think he was fit for the job, that came later. I dismissed him because I thought he couldn’t win.

      I have my doubts DeSantis appeals to the same demographics that Trump does. I don’t think he is as strong as Trump in areas/voters Rs must win to win the GE. General comments that he will be stronger than Trump in the suburbs are fine, but doing marginally better in suburbs while losing blue collar votes would not ensure a win.

      Until polls show differently, and indeed they might, I will still believe Trump is a better GE candidate or Rs in 2024 than DeSantis. The caveat is a year is an eternity in politics, and DeSantis has plenty of time to improve his standing with the groups I think he is weaker than Trump. I will not be surprised, or disappointed, if polls show him gaining in R primary preferences and even in head to head against the Dems. There is no doubt he is a much better representative of the future of the R party than Trump is, but that is only valuable if he can win.

      THe J6 committee is committed to taking Trump down. They might be shooting themselves in the foot, because 8 years of DeSantis would be more damaging to their agenda than 4 years of Trump.

    28. jason says:

      Jason – If Trump runs in 2024 and you want Trump to be the nominee, why not register to vote in 2024 so you can vote for him?”

      I don’t want Trump to be nominee.

      I want the R who would be more likely to win the GE to be the nominee. In my view, we still don’t know who that is.

      I am not a R so I wouldn’t be voting in the primary anyway.

      You will so choose wisely.

      SCOTUS votes 6-3 for the conservative block in the environmental case. It does not destroy the Chevron Rule, but considerably weakens it by returning authority to Congress.

    38. DW says:

      Critics at the time saw in Reagan a “Barry Goldwater 2.0.”

      Even though Carter was in deep trouble, Reagan was pushed into accepting Bush as veep, the worst mistake he ever made. The thinking was that without a moderate like Bush to balance the ticket there was no way Reagan could defeat Carter.

      As it turned out, Reagan would have defeated him soundly anyway.

      Trump’s unprecedented politicization of the Secret Service (making a senior agent his deputy chief of staff and doing it in a way that he could then go back to the Service) followed the classic authoritarian playbook of co-opting and corrupting the presidential security services.

    40. jason says:

      There was no evidence in 1978 that Reagan could win the GE in 1980,or even be the nominee.”

      Correct.

      He won anyway.

      Both can be true.

      My point is that there is yet to be any poll that shows DeSantis can match Trump’s blue collar vote in the swing states needed to win. Or any poll showing R primary voters prefer him over Trump. Or that DeSantis would do better than Trump against Biden or Harris.

      Not sure exactly what your point is. Did you read it in a magazine somewhere?

    41. jason says:

      So far, those that think DeSantis is a better candidate than Trump for 2024 seem to have one argument to back it up.

      “DeSantis is a better candidate than Trump”.

    42. jason says:

      Here is what the British bookies think.

      “To make matters even worse for Biden, he is now third favourite to win the 2024 US Presidential election, behind both Trump (3/1) and Florida’s Republican governor Ron DeSantis (4/1),” he said.

      Short said that Biden initially appeared willing to cede power to his Vice President Kamala Harris after just one term, but she’s not faring to well to bookies, either. She has “floated way out to 12/1 with bet365 to be the next U.S. president. Evidently punters and U.K. bookmakers are looking no further than Biden when it comes to Democratic names in 2024.”

      In fact, Biden’s odds of even serving out his full first term aren’t all that great.

      Biden’s odds of serving until Jan. 20, 2025, are “at their worst since November 2021, as betting sites maintain a level of uncertainty over the veteran’s longevity in the White House.”

      “Biden’s first 18 months as president have been dogged by political issues at home and abroad. America has come out of the COVID-19 pandemic more divided than ever, and a cost of living crisis is beginning to pinch,” Short said. “Betting apps have dropped their odds on the president being ousted before his first four years have elapsed.”

      According to political betting sites, Biden is “now 7/4 to lose his job before 2024. That suggests a 36% probability – the highest his chances of being ousted as president have been since last autumn,” the oddsmaker said.

    43. Phil says:

      I suspect the Senate will vote to codify Roe v Wade this session. A carve out is practically guaranteed – probably with the help of Collins and Murkowski.

      Has 60 minutes or whatever TV “informative” show ever done a show yet shining the spotlight on voting oddities, irregularities, fraud, etc. of the 2020 election–and presenting both sides of the issues?

      ###############################################

      They could start with the evidence presented in testimony by witnesses at hearings conducted by state legislatures in AZ, NV, GA, WI, MI and PA like:

      –voters who I have seen interviewed who moved out of state X above 18 months before the 2020 election but were told by the interviewer in late November that an absentee ballot supposedly from them was cast and counted in that state? The guy who moved from NV said he filled out no absentee ballot for 2020 in NV and just shrugged.

      –how ballot harvesting in nursing homes is done and how people who have no mental cognition are “helped” to vote? What is the logical explanation of how this could happen? Why would it be legal at all to do?

      –the PA election watcher guy (retired Col. or Major or Gen.) who testified that he went into a room (after all votes were counted) and saw boxes full of tens of thousands of ballots that apparently were not counted, (or maybe extra mail-in ballots not counted). what is the logical explanation?

      –the reason why some of the ballots in certain counties had a bar code on them and ballots in other GA counties or even in same county did not have any bar codes. what is the logical explanation?

      –the various many people in the states listed above that signed affidavits that when they went to vote in-person they were told that they had already voted either by mail-in or in person during early voting or on election day–and they swear they did not vote earlier in any way–but they were denied the right to vote. How can this happen?

      –the counting of some number of tens of thousands of votes in GA where there were no poll watchers present (they were sent away and told counting was ceased due to the “flood waters” from the BR pipe located thousands of feet away from where they were running the ballots through the machine). Why did this oddity happen? Are those votes counted without poll watchers present legal? (Remember the suitcases pulled from beneath the table/table cloth..)

      –the GA SOS deciding to reduce the signature match to only 10% for mail in ballots. Why did this happen? Can we see some of the ballots that might be questionable?

      –how many millions of mail-in ballots were mailed out to voters (without being requested by the voter) in various states in question? How was it possible to have 50 mail-in ballots mailed to the same apartment (not apartment building, but all to apartment 6)? How many of those with same address were returned and counted?

      –How is it possible that dozens of voters who voted listed their address at vacant lots that had no buildings (or even tents) on them for years?

      –How is it possible that hundreds of voters who voted by mail-in ballot listed their address as the county municipal building in AZ?

      –If the purpose of having in-person voting during elections is to ensure that voters are not intimidated or unduly influenced or corrupted in their votes, and where campaign signs are not allowed within so many feet of the polling place, and nobody (with few exceptions) is allowed to go into the voting booth with the voter, and electioneering is not allowed at the polling place, etc. they how can the same security measures designed to ensure fair elections be in place when you mail out millions of unsolicited mail-in ballots to voters?

      –What about the woman in GA (?) who testified they witnessed half a dozen people at a van filling out dozens of ballots?

      –What about the GA woman who had video of GA ballots being removed by trucks and taken to shredder shortly after election, despite State law saying ballots need to be preserved for X # of months after an election is over?

      –What about the PA State court making the decision to countermand State law and allow for ballots that were mailed in after the State code deadline still be received and counted?

      –What about the True the Vote research that showed that thousands of voters in NV were pretty identical matches in name, age, birthdate, etc. to voters in CA with same name, age, birthdate, etc.?

      –What about large numbers of ballots cast by people who had the exact same birthdate in 1900?

      –How many people who are dead voted in state X,Y, or Z and died many months or years before the 2020 election?

      –Has any court examined and compared the voter lists in state X, Y, or Z with actual voters who cast ballots to see if there are any oddities which may indicate fraud?

      –What did happen to that truck load of ballots that seeming disappeared at that facility in PA?

      –Why were certain ballots cast by legal voters in Philly, PA who were registered Rs–when they gave the ballot to the poll worker–the poll worker marked the ballot with a big red “R” before putting it in the ballot box?

      –What about claims that during research after the election that there were some number of non-U.S. citizens who actually did cast votes in the 2020 election?

      –How could some number of inner-city precincts in Milwaukee have voter turnout exceeding 100% of voters registered there?

      –How was it possible that during live TV the total votes for Trump actually DECLINED when more votes were tallied and the new set of total numbers for the state were posted?

      I could go on. But you get my drift.

      “A couple months ago, I put her in touch with Congresswoman Cheney,” Farah said. “She got a new lawyer and that’s how this testimony came about.”

      John Berman asked Farah to elaborate, and she replied that Hutchinson was one of several former White House staffers who at first had a lawyer assigned to her from “Trump World.” Farah added that Hutchinson’s original legal representative was “someone who had been in the White House counsel’s office,” and “still aligned with Trump World” when she gave her first interviews to the committee.

      “She did her interview, she complied with the committee, but she shared with me ‘There is more I want to share that was not asked in those settings. How do we do this?’” Farah said. “In that process, she got a new attorney of her own. Congresswoman Cheney had a sense of what questions needed to be asked that weren’t previously. So that’s how this shocking testimony that people didn’t realize before kind of came about, and it didn’t come up in her earlier interview, some of those facts.”

    84. Wes says:

      It just came to me, Mikey. Cornyn is a durable politician who’s handily beaten back even the strongest Dem opponents.

      -Once again, your logic fails.

      Cruz won his elections. Just like Cornyn.

      Cornyn has no reason to do what he did, as he is so “well-liked”, so he should be the last person to do what Schumer wants, which was more useless gun legislation.

      The only people who will be affected by that legislation is, most likely, legal gun owners who are on the “wrong” political side of an argument, and that is what a slime like Schumer loves.

      mnw posted it in the other place, but there’s a poll showing Susie Lee (D NV-03) behind Republican challenger April Becker 46-44. Becker is ahead with Hispanics 48-42. Maybe the Heavily Accented Geniuses can weigh in on this race.

    93. Tgca says:

      A win is a win in politics whether by 2.5% or 10%.

      Cruz ran in a unfavorable year for the GOP.

      Scott in FL, also barely won his senate seat in 2018, after serving 8 years as Gubbernor.

      Cornyn has betrayed us gun owners by being a useful idiot for the left and playing in their hands to whittle away gun rights little by little. The red flag provision he supports is ripe for major abuse and judges and politicians will find ways to use it to deny gun owners their guns. Anyone with common sense knows that.

      It’s not at all shocking to me your preferred Senator from Texas is the one Dems have the best chance of beating in an election, Mikey. I’m not exactly sure how you can claim to be an anti-choice conservative when you’ve spent over a decade trying to ensure Schumer would get and retain control of the Senate. You’re the epitome of a Schumer bootlicker, your disingenuous attempts to say otherwise notwithstanding.

    96. Wes says:

      Cruz was an incumbent in a state where Democrats last won a Senate race in 1988. Scott was running against a three-term incumbent who had never dipped below 51% of the vote.

      They’re not exactly the same, Tg. You might want to examine the underlying dynamics of each race when making comparisons.

    97. EML says:

      …or explain why Trump did 12% better with Latinos in Miami-Dade in 2020 than 2016.

      …or explain why Trump did better with Latinos in North Carolina than Tillis.

      Shall we analyze e wry state for EML, the Hispanic Whisperer or do we keep just using his ONE example in Texas?

    101. Tgca says:

      Scott was a 2-term incumbent Guv going directly to the senate from the Guv’s office so it’s equivalent to being a senate incumbent in this case.

      In fact, I would say more so because people generally know a lot more about their Guv than their senator.

    102. Tgca says:

      I’ve been saying for years that the GOP has missed opportunities with Latino voters but to no avail by a GOP that only seriously talks about reaching out to Latinos near elections.

      Trump proved you can make inroads with them if you put the right focus there, in the things important to them.

      Latinos are more culturally conservative but they are also generally more liberal in support of gubbermint programs and a safety net.

      The trick is to find the right balancing act and WHERE as well since not all Latinos are the same demographically.

      Latinos in CA vote differently than those in Florida, depending on the Latino ethnicity as well.

      I believe Trump made gains with Latinos because he targeted them in certain areas that the GOP traditionally ignored.

      But make no mistake, Latinos will jump right back to voting Dem if the GOP fails to address their needs.

      Latinos are being pushed to the GOP now because of Biden and his failures but with a more moderate Dem, they can easily switch back.

      The GOP has its work cut out for permanently bringing over Latino voters but there’s opportunity.

    103. Bitterlaw says:

      Why is EML called a Liz Cheney Republican? I lost my program.

    104. Wes says:

      Being a two-term Governor is in no way equivalent to being an incumbent Senator, Tg. You’re just making things up to create a false equivalence. William Weld (R-MA) was a two-term Governor when he challenged John Kerry (D-MA) in 1996. Steve Bullock (D-MT) was a two-term Governor when he challenged Steve Daines (R-MT) in 2020. No one in any way claimed they were anything but challengers. People vote differently between Governor and Senator because of the different priorities between the offices. The two don’t overlap besides being the highest statewide offices in their states.

      Scott’s win was impressive because Nelson was an inoffensive incumbent in a state that had oscillated between the parties on the federal level for the past couple of decades before the election, but Rick Scott was in no way a Senate incumbent. His victory, however, did herald the end, at least for now, of Florida’s status as a swing state and indicate it was becoming a narrow but inflexible GOP state.

      In contrast, Ted Cruz won by double digits in a bad year for GOP Senators. Remember, they dropped to eight seats–their lowest showing in the Class One seats since the 1964 election–that year. Cruz was a smarmy egotist who didn’t pay the required attention to his state though and found himself vulnerable to a C-list opponent out of step with the state who had a ton of baggage. The attempt to evade the DUI should have caused Beto to run no better against Cruz than the Dem in 2012 had. Instead, because Cruz has such a grating public persona and decided to read Green Eggs and Ham on the Senate floor rather than campaign seriously, Beto had the best showing for a Democrat in a Texas Senate race in 30 years and actually had coattails resulting in ousting at least two GOP House incumbents who had previously held safe seats.

      It’s really clear. Scott did the due diligence and beat the odds to beat a longtime fixture of Florida politics to give the Sunshine State its first GOP duo since Reconstruction. Cruz was arrogant and lazy and nearly lost to someone who had no business coming anywhere close to statewide office in the Line Star State.

      Two years later, John Cornyn avoided the pitfalls Cruz had fallen into and ultimately had no problem beating back a far more substantial opponent than Cruz had faced.

    105. Wes says:

      Lone* Star State

    106. Phil says:

      Beto came within 2.6% of Cruz because

      1) 2018 was a very Democratic year. Democrats picked up just south of 40 seats and took control of the House.

      2) Beto’s friends in NY and California raised 90 million and he outspent Cruz more than 2-1.

      3) no candidate in my memory got the rosy media coverage Beto got. It was ridiculous.

      4). As far as the Beto DUI, it got the same amount of coverage as Hunter’s laptop. Namely zero. It was erased from media coverage entirely.

      R.I.P. Woody.

    108. Wes says:

      I actually saw the footage on the news, Phil, and I live 1500 miles from Texas. Even if the Texas media blacked it out, why didn’t Cruz put it all over his ads? One would think maybe Cruz would have a vested interest in ensuring all Texas knew Beto had driven the wrong way down a highway to try to escape a DUI arrest.

      By the way, 2018 was a better year for Senate Republicans than 2012, the year Cruz first won. In 2012, Republicans dropped from 10 to 8 seats in the Class One seats and ended up at 45-53-2 overall. In 2018, Republicans went from 8 to 10 Class One seats and ended up at 53-47 in the Senate. Of course the GOP managed that because Dems held a lopsided 23-8-2 advantage in the Class One seats, but the fact remains that Republicans did objectively better in the Senate in 2018 than in 2012.

    110. Tgca says:

      110

      Wes, you present your opinion and I present mine.

      FL is not MA!

      Scott, as a twice incumbent Guv should have had no problem beating Nelson in a state trending away from his party and politics in good economic times.

      The problem with Scott is he has little to no charisma and has barely eked out wins in all his FL elections. A more charismatic FL politician would most likely have done better against Nelson.

      FL has had GOP Guv for 20 over years straight and has locked down every major office at the state level except for Agricultural Commisioner.

      FL is to the GOP as CA is to the Dems when it comes to party control. It should not be difficult for a FL GOP politician with major name recognition to beat a Dem here at the state level.

      If you don’t see that, you don’t know FL.

    111. Tgca says:

      112

      Phil is correct! MSM was rooting for Beto and gave him great support. Positive MSM coverage can buy you 5+ points.

      No one seriously thought Ted Cruz would lose in 2018.

      Whether he won by 2 points or 20 points does not matter because he was expected to win and did win.

    112. Wes says:

      Sure, Tg, because a state that’s voted twice for a Dem for President this century and three times for a Dem Senator is exactly equivalent to a state that hasn’t voted for a GOP Senator or President–and come close electing GOP Senator only once–since 1988.

      It’s an exact 1:1 comparison.

      How did I not see this before?

      What you say about Rick Scott may be true, but the fact remains that he was challenging a sitting Senator with decades worth of good will behind him in a closely divided state and won.

      Meanwhile, Cruz was himself the incumbent officeholder in a state where Democrats have been taking it on the chin for decades and barely scraped by against a disastrous opponent in what was objectively a better year for GOP Senators overall than the year when Cruz first won.

    113. Wes says:

      By the way, Tg, I like how you say Scott should have had no problem beating an incumbent Senator whose only previous loss was a 1994 gubernatorial primary and who had won his Senate seat by 51-46, 60-38, and 55-43 respectively.

      Sure. Rick Scott should have had no problem taking down that guy. No evidence of electoral success on Nelson’s part at all. Not a shred.

    114. Wes says:

      I’m sorry. A 1990 gubernatorial primary. My mistake.

    115. Tgca says:

      118

      I think Scott should have more easily defeated Nelson. Nelson is not well known in the state amongst average voters. He got a D after his name so most who vote D will pull the lever for him regardless, knowing little or nothing of him, whereas, most voters knew much more about Scott as the states CEO with a high profile. I myself am surprised by folks I know here that can’t name their senators or CongressCritters but I’ve noticed that in other states I lived as well.

      Scott is simply a lackluster candidate. Again, I believe, given FL demographics and trend, any other high profile FL politician in the position of Scott would have taken out Nelson more easily in 2018.

    116. Wes says:

      Let’s see. Bill Nelson served in statewide office continuously in Florida from 1995 to 2019.

      No. No one knew who he was. Not a single Floridian had any clue who Nelson was. That’s why he won all those elections. He was a complete unknown.

    117. Phil says:

      Lousy year for Republicans in Texas, Wes regardless of what happened in Mo, Indiana, Tennessee, Florida Senate races.

      All Republican office holders in Harris and Dallas County were completely wiped out – from judges, county officers all the way down the ballot. Hell, Harris County threw out the popular Republican county judge and replaced him with a no name 20 something nobody. All judges were wiped out completely. Democrats made advances in both the state house and state senate. It was not a good year in Texas for Republicans. Worst in my memory. Democrats also picked off two Republican House seats and Republicans barely held on to two others.

    118. Wes says:

      Well, five elections worth of data say you’re wrong, Tg. It’s amazing how little you know about the electoral history of politicians in your own state.

    119. Tgca says:

      Wes

      FL in 2018 is not the same FL as FL in 2006.

      The state has been trending GOP for a decade. I’ve seen that living here on and off for over a decade.

      Nelson was doomed sooner or later as well. He also lacked the charisma that other Dems might have.

      The fact he lost 5% points between 2006 and 2012 and another 5 points between 2012 and 2018 goes to my point that FL was not favorable for him any longer, especially after being in politics here for 50 years.

      An incumbent Guv in very good times should have not struggled the way Scott did to unseat Nelson in FL.

    120. Wes says:

      At the same time, Phil, Greg Abbott won reelection with 56% of the vote. The Senate race shouldn’t have been that close–and probably wouldn’t have been had Cornyn been the one up that year. Democrats may have had a decent showing down ballot, but given the results of the other statewide races, it looks as if Cruz put himself in danger against the very man Abbott will steamroll in four months.

    121. Tgca says:

      Wes

      Keep your job giving back rubs because you lack the analytical skills to see trends and could never make it as a data scientist with your simplistic incorrect analysis.

      I just pointed out the trend where Nelson has lost 10 points in two elections straight so the writing was on the wall that he was going downhill.

      This goes to my point that a stronger GOP candidate should have more easily beaten Nelson but Scott has always been a VERY LUCKY weak candidate barely eking out wins in his FL elections for a state favorable to other GOPers the last decade.

    122. Wes says:

      You’re forgetting candidate quality here, Tg. Florida definitely trended GOP in the 2010s, but Nelson still beat the strongest candidate the FLGOP had to throw against him in 2012 by double digits. Mack IV was a far better candidate than Harris had been but still wasn’t the same caliber as his father. Rick Scott was the only candidate who was able to match Nelson in spending and GOTV efforts. That’s objectively true.

      Saying another ethereal Republican would have beaten him more soundly is simple sophistry on your part. In fact Republicans rallied around Rick Scott because no one was perceived as credible enough to beat Nelson. Scott has his own issues that have limited his electoral ceiling, but there’s simply no evidence Nelson would have lost to anyone but him. That’s just an assertion without evidence on your part.

    123. Wes says:

      Hm.

      A self-proclaimed data analyst who outright lied by saying an incumbent Governor is also an incumbent Governor and created an assertion he hasn’t posted a single shred of evidence for while ignoring difference in candidate quality between Nelson’s 2006 and 2012 opponents is going to lecture me on election outcomes.

      You would be hilarious if you weren’t pathetic, Tg.

      With that, I’m off to have a beer.

      Have a good night, all.

    124. Tgca says:

      128

      I did not forget candidate quality. It’s part of my assumption in these two candidates. Neither were great candidates that bonded with voters.

      However, most people have very little knowledge of their senators unless they’re very high profile which Nelson was not.

      The Guv though is very high profile and Scott was in the news daily for 8 years in FL.

      Most people in FL would struggle if you asked them in 2018 to name their two senators. My guess is most would name Rubio but a significant portion would struggle naming Nelson.

      You’re simply trying to explain away Scott’s inability as a stronger candidate. Just like Jeb Bush should have been a stronger POTUS candidate but was not because of his lack of charisma and ability to sell himself strong to the voters.

      I just don’t like Cornyn, Wes. He was fine his first two terms. Unfortunately, he became a creature of the swamp. He’s very similar to your two senators Tillis and Burr. Actually, better than Burr. A lot better. At least Cornyn didn’t even come close to voting for impeachment. I’ll give him that. What the hell happened to Burr anyway? Turned over his committee to the ranking Democrat on that committee Warner and then voted to impeach. Anyone ever asked him about all that? Looking forward to Budd taking over.

      – in GOP primary, Trump leads DeSantis 55/20

      The You Guv poll has it 45-36 Trump v DeSantis. Absolutely meaningless 2 years out. Ask George Romney, the Republican nominee in 1966-67(for 68), Ed Muskie the Democrat nominee in 1970(for 72), Jimmy Carter invisible in 1974)for 1976, or even more currently Jeb Bush the likely nominee in 2014(for 2016). Or Hillary Clinton, the certain democrat nominee for 2008 in 2006. As examples.
      Emerson at 40-53 for Biden is considerably better than most,and I Think the CGB is more than plus 3.

    146. Gordon Allen says:

      Especially as the Recession we’re entering into hasn’t hit the jobs numbers yet, which are always a lagging indicator. We’ll see what September and October look like.

      Expect DeSantis, if he is the nominee, to get the same level of treatment as Trump regardless of how he tweets.

      DeSantis is just as combative and in your face as Trump, he is just more articulate about it and has a more pleasing sounding voice than grumpy sounding Trump.

      Either way, I don’t think the issue for Dems and the MSM being about how DeSantis reacts or uses Twitter. They will want to show him as a radical righty out to destroy women, gays, minorities, unions, etc and do everything in their power to destroy him.

      Dumb people like gays, some minorities, and white suburban women voters will fall for the trap and vote against him, regardless.

      He will get just as much bad press as Trump. I can see him being censored by Big Tech too for misinformation or his views on trannies.

      Good article.

      I still think people are arguing semantics here. What they define as Deep State. It’s not hooded folks with cloaks and daggers meeting in dark candlelit rooms at round tables plotting the demise of their enemies.

      It’s about coordinated activities among people with access to power to lie, manipulate, and deceive to bring great harm to those they feel threatened by.

    166. Gordon Allen says:

    169. jason says:

      Deep State is conspiracy theory trash like when idiots claimed GWB planted bombs in the WTC and the Pentagon. Are there people who share the same ideology in govt agencies and believe the ends justify the means? Yes. Is it an organization within the government? No. So using the term Deep State implies something that does not exist..that is why it is stupid.

    170. Tgca says:

      176

      You is WRONG Bish!

      My definition of Deep State is more along the line that powerful people use their influence to sabotage and create false narratives to destroy their enemies that brings harm to our country. Many work together to achieve these means by collaborating on false narratives as well.

      It is not a secret organization with a secret headquarters.

      These are well-connected people that work together against the concept of democracy be refusing to accept duly elected individuals.

      They are no different than Big Tech or MSM. They have an agenda and will lie, manipulate, and mislead to achieve their goals and attempt to discredit or destroy anyone that gets in their way.

      To think that numerous people who saw Trump as a threat acted on their own without any support or influence of others is naive.

      Of course Tgca tries to muddle the waters by admitting there is no “organization”.

      I agree. There is no “Deep State” organization. And if there is no organization there is no leadership and there is no structure and there are no members.

      There are ideologically driven people in government agencies (elections have consequences) who do believe the ends justify the means.

      That is not a “Deep State”.

      I said basically the same thing.

      “There are ideologically driven people in government agencies (elections have consequences) who do believe the ends justify the means.”

      Deep State implies there is some kind of supra organization within the government. There is no evidence of that. Zero. Zilch. Nada.

      We can all agree the Dems (and the academic liberal intelligentsia) have filled government agencies with liberals. And we can agree that some of these people are willing to put their allegiance to their ideology above anything else.

      But there is no Deep State, that is for conspiracy theory fruitcakes.

      Out of sauropods, I prefer the Brachiosaurus, Bitter. It’s cool to imagine something the size of a blue whale walking around on land.

      Diplodocus was basically a sauropod on a diet given how slender it was compared to most of the other sauropod genera.

      Of course even cooler than the sauropods was the Plateosaurus, which was a prosauropod, basically a relatively small (about the size of a killer whale) sauropod from the Triassic Period–the first and strangest period of dinosaurs–that could walk bipedally rather than quadrupedally.

    206. jason says:

      Hilarious how the “Deep State” believers have to keep explaining that by “Deep State” they don’t really mean “Deep State”.

      When you have to keep explaining that your idea is not really what you say it is then there is something wrong with your idea.

    207. jason says:

      wes, do you ever watch a reality show, Dino Hunters, of dinosaur hunters in Montana and Wyoming as they uncover bones.

      It always amazes me how they they brush dirt off a small bone and almost immediately say what kind of dinosaur and bone it was. These guys are basically cowboys and ranchers who have learned a lot on their own.

      It is staged? Probably, but still the information is interesting and the bones are real.

    208. Wes says:

      I’ve never watched it, Jason. I have watched paleontology videos before, but the scientists in the videos I watch always wait till they have something resembling confirmation of the genus they’re looking at before attempting identification.

      Most fossils are incomplete because of various factors, so it’s nearly impossible to determine what kind of animal someone is looking at without detailed study in a lab.

      For example, as I noted above, Brontosaurus was thought to be the same as Apatosaurus because the two were similar animals discovered by rival paleontologists around the same time. Recent investigation has proved Brontosaurus is its own genus of animal though and is not an outdated synonym for Apatosaurus.

      Oh puhleeeez!

      You wussy northerners watch dinosaurs in documentaries when I walk among them in danger daily.

      That’s why I NEVAH leave my house without my Ruger 9mm 17 mag and extra clip because I never know when I’ll be confronted by one of these ferocious prehistoric beasts. If 34 rounds won’t stop them…oh well.

      As I predicted, the MAGA morons have begun to attack Ron DeSantis. Newsmax host Greg Kelly called DeSantis a career politician and warned him not to run against MAGA daddy. Look for the Trump worshippers to accuse DeSantis of not being loyal to Donnie. It’s coming.

      – Eh. She’s a clown looking for engagement numbers on Twitter so I’m not surprised she wants to reinstate twice impeached Trump as president.

      She’d be exactly the kind of bottom feeder I’d expect to be a cabinet secretary in the mythical second Trump term.

      -Which is exactly why you were the one who found her!

      Did she steal your red shoes?
