    Walker Leads Warnock By 2%, Kemp Leads Abrams By 9% in GA

    The polls out of Ohio that I posted this morning showed Democrats in position to pick up a US Senate seat in Ohio. Meanwhile, a new poll from Data for Progress shows the opposite happening in the state of Georgia where Trump-endorsed Republican Herschel Walker holds a 2% lead over Democrat Raphael Warnock.

    US SENATE – GEORGIA (DFP)
    Herschel Walker (R) 49%
    Raphael Warnock (D-inc) 47%

    GOVERNOR – GEORGIA (DFP)
    Brian Kemp (R-inc) 53%
    Stacey Abrams (D) 44%

    This poll was done July 1-6 among 1131 likely voters.

      This is an approved poll.

      It shows Rs ahead.

      The whiners will be pleased.

    2. Bitterlaw says:

      Dave posts a poll with Republicans in the lead.

      Tina hardest hit.

    4. jason says:

      Of course, this polls does show a close race.

      This probably should not be allowed, Dave should only post polls with Rs far ahead.

      US spending to counter Russian war effort exceeds first 5 years of war costs in Afghanistan

      @BillKristol
      We could certainly use someone with the qualities and of the quality of Volodymyr Zelensky as our next president. Which means we need that person as the Democratic nominee in 2024. Is that person Jon Stewart?”

    9. Wobbles says:

      I am still hoping Avenatti will be paroled by then but Stewart is certainly a good name.

    10. jason says:

      US spending to counter Russian war effort exceeds first 5 years of war costs in Afghanistan”

      LOL, what a despicable and dishonest load of crap designed to trick the reader into thinking “wow, we must be spending a lot in Ukraine”.

      That is of course because the US had very few troops in Afghanistan the first 5 years, it was only with the increase in the insurgency that the number grew exponentially.

      In the first 5 years the US had at most 20k troops in Afghanistan.

      It wasn’t until 2009 that the number surpassed 50k and 2010 that it reached 100k.

      The war in Afghanistan cost at least $2.5 trillion, which is 50 times more than $50 billion in Ukraine aid.

    11. Bitterlaw says:

      I hope the next military shipment to Ukraine is in the air now.

      In 1940, Tina would have called Lend Lease grift and Tgclown would say Churchill was corrupt.

    12. jason says:

      And Neville Allen would say let Hitler and Stalin divvy up the whole world except for the USA island.

    13. EML says:

      Alright Bitter, I bought your book. Please use the proceeds on a beer instead of something wasteful like your kids education.

    14. Bitterlaw says:

      Thanks, EML. I would use it at Olive Garden but the breadsticks are free!

      Just curious if you bought from the publisher or another retail site like Amazon.

    15. EML says:

      Amazon

    16. EML says:

      They said it was the last one, but it looks like there’s another last one.

    17. Bitterlaw says:

      Thank you. I am curious how the different sites sell it. Nobody has bought the e-book yet. I like being able to hold a book in my hands.

      Amazon pays a fraction of what I get from books bought directly from the publisher but that is capitalism.

    18. Tgca says:

      The Liz Cheney Republican, EML, a.k.a. The Hispanic Whisperer tries to use reverse psychology in the last thwed to suggest Bitter got the best of me even though I exposed his IGORENCE and hypocrisy on wokeness, Radnor elitism, the science of depression, good Philly, bigoted comments on southerners, his refusal for years to condemn child molestor Menendez, and virtue signaling to name a few.

      The Hispanic Whisperer is just pissed because we now routinely mock him for IGORENCE on Latinx he claims to know so much about.

      Bitter could argue the earth is flat and EML would side with him against me because of his TGDS.

      Nice try but you fell flatly on your face EML.

      Now tell us how popular Cornyn is now that he has the lowest approval rating of any nationally recognized GOP politician.

    19. Bitterlaw says:

      Tgclown is just agitated since his puppet master, lisab, disappeared.

    20. Tgca says:

      Our resident Liz Cheney Republican, EML, a.k.a. The Hispanic Whisperer hardest hit.

      Cornyn approval rating plunges to 24% after gun bill support. Lower than Biden and his disapproval rating is higher than any other TX Republican.

      EML to claim Hispanics still support Cornyn by wide margins over Trump and it’s just those sycophantic MAGA folks driving down Cornyn’s approval ratings.

      EML to claim:

      TEXAS LATINX LOVE CORNYN!!!

    21. Tgca says:

      19

      I think LisaB was your puppet master!

      After all, she did pull the strings that made you rush out in the evening to your town’s meeting to virtue signal one night. REMEMBER?

    22. Tgca says:

      But to be honest, I defer to LisaB or Jadon on Radnor since my knowledge of it is very limited and mostly through them.

      I admit I know much more about corrupt, filthy, smelly, Philly though.

    23. Bitterlaw says:

      The clown can’t have it both ways. He claims I am woke and virtue signaling to please woke friends and neighbors BUT the speeches I delivered were expressly and strongly against CRT and woke/cancel culture. This is why he is a clown.

    24. Bitterlaw says:

      Tgclown knows more about waterfront property and killing fish than I do. I give credit where it is due.

    25. Tgca says:

      23

      No! You are virtue signaling to HHR after LisaB TRICKED you into going to the town meeting just like you then virtue signal to your woke comrades in Radnor and Philly regularly.

      You virtue signal to anyone willing to listen. It’s your MO!

      It’s ok. We all have our faults, you just have a lot more than most.

      Hugs and kisses always.

    26. Tgca says:

      After speaking to two professional aquarists, including one who breeds certain small fresh water fish, I learned that it is not unusual to lose a certain percentage of small freshwater fish when purchasing them, as that is routine in the industry. Hence, why stores sell so many of them as opposed to other larger fish or animals.

      Freshwater fish are easily stressed and because they are shipped in Mexico to Texas style illegal trafficking, it is normal for a certain percentage to expire due to the stress it causes to their immune system. Kind of nature’s way of weeding out the weaker ones unfortunately.

      It explains why you can bring home 6 fish from the same tank at a store and have one or two pass while the others survive even though they’re all exposed to the same new environment.

    27. Tgca says:

      I now quarantine my new fish in a special tank for a few weeks before I introduce them to my other community tanks. I also do a trio of recommended medications to treat parasites and bacteria they pick up along the way upon purchase because you never know what is lurking in store tanks.

      I spend about an hour daily monitoring water environments and make appropriate small water changes weekly to keep the water as pristine as possible while also keeping the beneficial bacteria flourishing.

      Most of my 45+ fish and snails have thrived for a year but since small fresh water fish generally have short lives of 1 to 3 years, depending on the species, we will see how it goes.

    28. Bitterlaw says:

      Zzzzzzzz

      Fact 1 – I did not know there was a meeting. Stalker lisab did and posted about. Stalker Lisab was obsessed with Radnor students that she criticized them for giving an orchestra concert at a building owned by a conservation group.

      Fact 2 – Stalker Lisab did not tell me what to say.

      Fact 3 – My anti-CRT and anti-woke/anti-cancel culture speech was so well-received that I was asked to speak again by a group of conservative parents.

      Fact 4 – Tgca is a clown who is now recognized as a clown by Jason, Wes, and EML.

      Maybe Tgclown should stop looking for fish experts to justify his slaughter of fish and seek out experts who could help him stop killing so many.

    29. jason says:

      I would report Tgca to the Animal Cruelty Society but I don’t want to send them on a wild goose chase, there is a lot of waterfront property in Florida.

    30. Tgca says:

      28

      …and Bitter is recognized as a wokester and virtue signaler by nearly every regular poster at HHR including Jadon and Wes.

      I’d rather be recognized as a clown than a woke virtue signaler.

    31. Tgca says:

      29

      Hey! I save fish lives by adopting them. Sooner or later, they succumb to the stress of their environments if not properly homed.

    32. Bitterlaw says:

      The are videos of me being anti-woke. There is campaign literature from 3 races with my conservative platform on them.

      Public proof of Tgclown’s alleged conservatism? None.

      Even today, he accused his critics of toxic masculinity. Who write’s his posts? Whoopi Goldberg? Joy Behar?

      He embraces being a clown.

    33. Bitterlaw says:

      Tgclown claims he saves fish by only killing some of them. He saves them by taking them out of their natural environment so they can swim in circles in his living room.

    34. Tgca says:

      Sick girl screams “we love killing babies.” Too bad her mom did not choose an ABORTION for her.

      These are the kind of people you find in the wastelands of DC, Philly, NYC, Chicago, LA, San Francisco, and San Diego to name a few liberal cities.

      https://citizenfreepress.com/breaking/democrat-screams-we-love-killing-babies/

    35. Tgca says:

      33

      Boy! Bitter is really one stoopid and IGORENT woke virtue signaler.

      Fish in crowded aquariums in stores are not in their natural environments.

      Bitter knows as much about fish as he knows about depression.

      Clearly, Bitter does NOT follow the science.

    36. Bitterlaw says:

      I’m sure you would hear the same thing in Miami, Austin, and Houston.

    37. Tgca says:

      32

      Hey Bitter

      How many people at HHR routinely accuse you of being woke and a virtue signaler.

      How many? Count them!

      Are they all WRONG or are you just in denial?

    38. Bitterlaw says:

      They are wrong. Next question.

      Let’s vote. If you had to kick out one poster, would it be me or Tgclown? I predict Tina and Gordon would kick me out. We can tally the votes tomorrow. We have no active military voters so no need to delay the count.

    39. Tgca says:

      36

      Ummm…doubtful in Miami. You do not see all these protests in Miami as you see elsewhere.

      Miami has had GOP mayors for over 10 years and held the office for 19 of the last nearly 30 years and the GOP dominates the city council too in this city that is over 70% Latino, including nearly 55% of Cuban origin.

      Austin is to TX as SF is to CA, a radical gay liberal bastion so not surprising to see routine protests there.

    40. Tgca says:

      38

      So Bitter wants a popularity contest because that’s what’s of utmost importance to him, image and virtue signaling.

      Thank you for further proving my point.

      God you are such a shallow and fake person!

      That’s why you think you’re better than southerners or where you live is better than rural PA.

      You would definitely fit in with The View crowd because you subscribe to their idea of what should determine outcome.

      I guess you also think the US should base the presidency on the most popular votes too, riiiiight?

    41. Bitterlaw says:

      More lies from Tgclown. I never said I am better than Southerners. I said I find the accent grating, hate their 2 season weather system (unbearable Summer and 1 season of Fall/winter/Spring), and the fake politeness is annoying. I would prefer somebody say GFY to me than “Bless his heart” about me.

      I never said where I live is better than rural PA. It is better for me because I like working and doing things in cities. I also like being 1 1/5 hours from the ocean.

      In 18 years at HHR, I have never supported getting rid of the Electoral College. I have supported doing away with early voting, doing away with mail in ballots EXCEPT for absentee ballots for good cause and military ballots, and supported having only one day to vote.

    42. SanDiegoCitizen says:

      @ShellenbergerMD
      Many people are confused as to why high oil & gasoline prices aren’t resulting in significantly more oil production & refining. But the reason is simple: President Biden has actively prevented it since taking office in the name of climate change.

    43. Tgca says:

      41

      You have routinely implied you are better than southerners and rural folks by putting them down. It’s very narcissistic view your have and you have been accused of this routinely by many.

      It’s one thing to joke and mock about things but you seriously have issues with others that don’t meet your personal standards that you judge them and their way of life from your ridiculous views on marriage to where people live.

      It is a very bigoted way to live life. It’s why so many here mock you more than anyone else with regard to where you live and how you virtue signal and CRAVE the acceptance of others.

      You’re a classic example of the shallow stuck up elitist privileged teenage girl who takes joy in putting others down to make herself feel better for her own insecurities That is you to the T!

      I watched some of the Alaska rally. With all the serious issues our country faces… Trumps pettiness and ego will continue to add to the toxic environment. It’s just not funny anymore. I am still hoping he defers to DeSantis. He probably won’t but he should if he really cared more about this country more than himself.

    47. Tgca says:

      46

      I agree Trump can be petty and narcissistic, and he definitely will not let go of what he viewed as a stolen election. But I think it is wrong to suggest if he really cared for the US he should step aside and shut up.

      IMHO, Trump did more for the US and conservatism than any other POTUS since Reagan, and would be the BEST solution for 2024 in terms of getting meaningful change done because he is not afraid to go after a cause and fight it out regardless of external pressures.

      I like DeSantis and he is my Gubbernor but he is also just as politically self-centered as Trump and any other politician who runs for POTUS, thinking they alone have the answers and are better qualified then all others to lead the nation.

      Trump saved the GOP from disastrous defeat in 2016 and got us things we never thought we’d get. For that I am eternally grateful.

      So much for CAN standing on principle to support the Ukrainian cause.

      Canada to Release Equipment for Russia-Germany Gas Pipeline

      It appears the West is getting fatigue over the Ukrainian-Russian War. I saw another article yesterday attesting that Europeans are more focused on their economic issues and inflation as this war drops down on the list of priorities to the working class. That appears to be the same in the US too.

      It’s a shame that a united Europe didn’t act faster because now it’s doubtful this conflict will resolve any time soon unless drastic measures are taken.

      This is why I do not trust NATO or the Europeans to do the right thing in a time of crisis. I think they had an opportunity to shut Russia down in March or April but failed to act and now we’ve wasted billions with no desired outcome in sight.

    52. JeffP says:

      48. I agree Trump has been a great at exposing the election corruption, media, RINOS, cultural war, etc…as President he did some great things as well like America First etc…I thought he handled Covid terribly…long discussion and it cost him.

      Problem is his approach to leadership doesn’t promote loyalty and he made many bad choices in who he surrounds himself with. I don’t see this improving.

      Regarding the stolen election… much has been done and still needs to be done. My issue with Trump is how could he not see the mail in ballot corruption coming in April of 2020? Campaign should have had a great legal team in place and stationed key people in every city and state key to victory to monitor the whole thing closely. If 2000 mules can have video evidence why couldn’t his campaign in real time. I don’t have any room for his whining about it,

      Most conservative influencers I trust are ready to move on but are waiting to see how 2024 plays out.

    53. Tgca says:

      53

      I don’t disagree on most of your post but Trump was not a traditional politician used to DC. He was naive in thinking he could trust folks in DC and do business with them as he did locally to build his empire.

      He needed a strong 2nd in command to focus him but he had no such person. Perhaps his ego is too big to find someone to fill those shoes who can actually get him to see loyalty alone does not lead to success in politics.

      I have always thought he should have cleaned house from Day 1 and I blame his team of “so-called” experts for not addressing the voting shenanigans being devised in the states during 2020. Those experts should have known better.

      Never expect Trump to mange the details. His talents and successes are based on being an architect of grand ideas and not managing the day-to-day.

      Perhaps getting burned has taught him a lesson about who he keeps in his inner circle. Perhaps not.

      GWB had the same issues but was managed very well by Cheney and friends. GWB had a vision for what he wanted and naively believed he could charm DC like he did politicians in TX but it was others in his circle who dealt with the details and carried it out. Otherwise, the GWB presidency would have been a total disaster.

      Good mangers make a difference.

      Looks like someone walked back their claims of many many months.

      No worries though. Many more here still think you’re woke and virtue signal so you’re good.

      J6C met with the Trump lawyer its star witness Cassidy claims told them “dis and dat” that they are basing their investigation outcome on to recommend criminal charges against Trump but refuse to ask him to corroborate her statements.

      They purposely showed this is a show trial and nothing more and are now trying to protect her against perjury.

      This is now like 3 or 4 folks that contradict this lying skank.

      I hope she gets prosecuted and they destroy her life. Any person that purposely comes forward to try and sway the outcome of an investigation under oath for personal gain should feel the wrath of justice without any mercy.

      This low level idiot who claims to know so much appears to be seeking her 15 minutes of fame. These are the kind of people Hellbent on destroying our country for personal gain.

      I hope she spends 10 years in jail with a violent tranny sexual predator as a cellmate.

      Ok. Maybe that’s a tad it harsh but you get my drift.

    76. Gil says:

      Ok someone help me out grudge between some of our posters.

      Bitterlaw vs Jason

      TGCA VS the World

      Just give me a brief synopsis of the feud and what started it.

    77. Bitterlaw says:

      Jason is furious that he was not one of the 2 original A-holes. I have tried to reassure him that he is first among the second tier A-holes but he is still angry. It stinks to be a sore A-hole.

      Tgca? How much time do you have?

    78. Wes says:

      Tgca hates anyone who eats normal food, Gil. He wants the rest of us to be as miserable as he is with his rabbit food diet.

    79. Tgca says:

      Evidently Gil never got past the 2nd grade and learned to count since when it comes to routine poster disagreements, fights, arguments, or whatever you wish to call it, I rank 4th, as evidenced by numerous threads.

      The routine disagreements by posters are counted and ranked below.

      Jadon leads the pack by far…and this doesn’t include the drive by posters not posting here for some time.

      So there’s the rankings.

      Let’s see if Gil is MAN (or insert preferred pronoun) enough to admit his comment was erroneous.

    80. Tgca says:

      This is one of the most vile and disgusting things I’ve ever seen a law officer have to deal with.

      This little brat will probably be dead by the time he’s 18 with this kind of attitude assaulting police, and perhaps justifiably so.

      Very sad that people raise their kids like this. He’s a thug in the making. What a waste of what could otherwise be a great human being. Poor kid. He’s been dealt a bad hand in life.

      Blame the parents!

      Flattery will get you everywhere….

    83. Gil says:

      Tgca I never said my question spoke of all feuds currently going on HHR. Just wanted a background on those two.

      Just so you know, I have been posting on HHR for nearly 20 years. Hell, I even won the 2016 HHR election contest. I read most of the comments but hardly ever post. It seems like most of the posts these days are attacking each other rather than talking about topics. That is the reason so many former/original posters have stopped posting.

    84. Tgca says:

      85

      The point of many posters not posting here anymore has been brought up a few times and mainly because of two posters that think they own this site and consistently attack others to the point people have to defend themselves against ridiculous comments.

      Perhaps with only a few recurring posters left, maybe it’s time Dave W. shut this site down.

    85. Tgca says:

      This article documents well the acknowledged corruption in Ukraine and how European support of rebuilding Ukraine is contingent on them sharply reducing corruption with Zelenskyy apparently accepting the terms and acknowledging the concerns over Ukrainian corruption based on his latest actions.

      Baby steps. Ukraine has been highly corrupt since it broke off from the USSR and has never been able to get pass that point and operate on the same level as other European countries.

      https://www.newsmax.com/newsfront/zelenskyy-ukraine-reconstruction-plans-invasion/2022/07/10/id/1078160/

    86. SanDiegoCitizen says:

      Finally the Ukrainians are getting the weaponry to take our Russian artillery:

      “It is an almost everyday occurrence in the Russian-occupied parts of eastern and southern Ukraine.

      Russia’s ammunition depots blow up, with large fires erupting as tons of ordnance detonate for hours. Some of these incidents cause giant blasts with a radius of hundreds of meters.

      Now that Ukraine has acquired advanced Western artillery and rocket systems, it has gradually begun a campaign to take out Russia’s key military infrastructure. Over the last four weeks, nearly 20 Russian ammunition depots in Russian-occupied Donbas and Ukraine’s south, including some of the largest, have been hit or completely destroyed.

      As Russia continues with its slow but steady advance in Ukraine’s eastern region of Donbas, Ukraine’s military is working to undermine Russia’s overwhelming artillery power and disrupt its logistics deep in occupied territories.”

    87. Bitterlaw says:

      There is no reason for Dave to shut down HHR. If people
      no longer want to post, they don’t have to post.

    88. Tgca says:

      There’s a difference between not wanting to post and being driven away from participating in posting by others’ constant attacks.

      Challenging debate is one thing but attacking and constantly ganging up on others was never the intent of this site I believe.

    89. Bitterlaw says:

      So why should Dave shut down HIS site?

    90. jason says:

      There’s a difference between not wanting to post and being driven away from participating in posting by others’ constant attacks.”

      If you don’t like it here, go somewhere else.

      It is no rocket science.

      Now GFY.

    91. jason says:

      It is also not rocket science.

    92. jason says:

      It is not true that Bitter and I have any kind of running feud.

      We agree on the vast majority of the major recurring topics at HHR. You know.

      -Civil war
      -Deadenders
      – Ukraine
      -Iraq war
      -GWB
      – Tgca is a clown
      etc

      Which is actually surprising considering he is a Radnor blue blood while I am a lowly Bittersville quasi deplorable. It shows you that agreement on major issues can transcend class distinctions.

      Sure, we disagree on a few minor issues:

      – WahWah vs. Sheets
      – Communist Pope
      – Llama shows vs. flower shows
      etc.

      So Gil is incorrect that there is any major crack among the A-holes.

      Now Tgca Clown vs. the World?

      Spot on.

    93. jason says:

      Ukraine has been highly corrupt since it broke off from the USSR”

      Zzzzz….

      Translation: it it ok for even more corrupt Putin to invade Ukraine and slaughter tens of thousands of Ukrainians and displace millions of them because it is “corrupt”.

      Tgca must be vying with Tucker Carlson to see who can get his head further up into Putin’s ass.

      Challenging debate”

      Hey Bitter, do you think of Tgca when you think of “challenging debate”?

      No?

      Me neither.

    99. SanDiegoCitizen says:

      Even NYTimes giving up on Biden:

      “President Biden is facing an alarming level of doubt from inside his own party, with 64 percent of Democratic voters saying they would prefer a new standard-bearer in the 2024 presidential campaign, according to a New York Times/Siena College poll, as voters nationwide have soured on his leadership, giving him a meager 33 percent job-approval rating.”

    100. Bitterlaw says:

      Some of Tgca’s Challenging Debate statements:

      My niece killed herself because of me.

      My daughter went to college on the other side of PA to get away from me.

      My wife does not really love me.

      I am a terrible parent.

      I have inappropriate relationships with teenage girls.

      I am a terrible lawyer.

      Yeah. He is truly a master debater.

    101. SanDiegoCitizen says:

      Having new weaponry may be a turning point for the Ukraine. They can now hit long-range Russian artillery.

      “Ukraine’s deputy prime minister on Sunday urged residents in the southern region of Kherson to evacuate ahead of a Ukrainian counterattack against Russian forces.

      Iryna Vereshchuk went on Ukrainian national television to warn of fighting and artillery shelling in the coming days, according to Reuters.”

    102. DW says:

      One of Biden’s staffers comes in and tells him, “Mr. President, you need to do something, the polling data says you are at 29, and its dropping with every day.”

      Biden replies, “I am 29? Don’t be fooled by my looks, I might look 29, but I feel much older.”

    103. jason says:

      All well and good, but I am not sure you should tell the Russians when where and from where you will begin shelling them.

    104. Wobbles says:

      29?

      No, I am not concerned.

      I have been clear that while 45 was fatal for Trump, 29 is not fatal for Biden.

      Trump had the entire MSM propping him up, while Biden gets hammered everyday at influential sites like HHR.

      Without the right wing propaganda attacks, Biden would be at least at 35, which is withing striking distance of 45.

      Following weeks of turmoil, @HerschelWalker’s campaign announces an internal staff shakeup. Many key players are staying, other veteran Georgia and Washington hands are joining a campaign that could decide control of the Senate.

      – Strange. When I wrote a few weeks ago Walker was not a good candidate, I was attacked by Jason fraud and others.

    106. Tgca says:

      102

      Bitter plays victim as usual seeking attention. In each one of his claims, he fails to mention how he escalated the situation and 1st attacked.

      A select few include among many include:

      Mocking my brothers death and a teen caring for his dying brother

      Mocking my family and our poverty and where we grew up repeatedly

      Mocking my ethnicity and heritage

      Mocking my personal relationships and questioning why I won’t share it with HHR

      He also mocked LisaB for losing her baby.

      Not to mention all his statements mocking others that don’t agree with him.

      Those that post here regularly have read these comments by Bitter and know they reflect his character.

      All these can be evidenced with posts and have been in the past.

      If Bitter never attacked others, he would not be attacked back. That simple!

    107. Robbie says:

      At this point, the only thing that can save Biden’s bacon is Trump.

      And since this forum is a reasonably good representation of where Republican base voters are, Trump is almost certainly going to be the Republican nominee.

      So while Biden may have the worst polling of any first term president since scientific polling became a thing, he’s still got a great chance of winning in 2024 because his opponent will likely be Trump.

      Even better, we’re going to do this all over again in 2028 because Trump’s going to run again then as well.

      Well, Robbie, if Walker’s doing that, then he clearly sees a problem with the current trajectory of his campaign and is doing something about it? How does that make Walker himself a bad candidate rather than his outgoing campaign staff bad at their jobs?

      What is “good” exactly?

      He was the overwhelming choice of GA Republican voters.

      He is like 100 times better than the scumbag he is running against.

      Sounds like he is a “good” candidate to me.

      Oh, I forgot, he was endorsed by Trump, that automatically makes him a “bad” candidate.

      I guess with Biden at 29% we should have expected Amoral Scumbag to be here attacking Walker.

    110. SanDiegoCitizen says:

      The New York Times continues to report bad news for the Democrats:

      “The Democratic Party has two core problems. First, Biden’s job approval rating is only 33 percent (similar to Trump’s worst ratings during his presidency), partly because of frustration over inflation and the continuing disruptions to daily life stemming from the pandemic. Second, Democrats’ priorities appear out of step with those of most Americans.”

    115. Tgca says:

      Jadon only claims I’m a clown now because he’s been schooled on the Ukrainian war as many here refuse to accept his position blindly and many conservatives feel the same so Jadon is on the losing side of this debate.

      Jadon fights the most here. Routinely calling people names like liar, moron, etc including Bitter. We all know this about Jadon and accept it.

      Bitter foolishly takes joy that Jadon has joined him in calling me a clown but it was Bitter routinely whining Jadon and me were allies against him. But regardless, Jadon still mocks Bitter routinely for being a woke virtue signaling elitist hypocrite from Radnor, as he just yesterday noted how Bitter thinks he’s better than others in rural areas. Hardly a ringing endorsement for Bitter’s character to rely on Jadon but that’s part of Bitter’s MO too, cozy up to anyone that will agree with him.

    116. jason says:

      And since this forum is a reasonably good representation of where Republican base voters are,”

      This may be true, but actually DeSantis seems to be the preferred candidate here rather than Trump.

      And everyone here knows that if DeSantis is the nominee, you will be here 24/7 shilling for Biden.

    117. jason says:

      LOL

      Looks like it the Putin toady and appeaser than has been “schooled”.

    118. SanDiegoCitizen says:

      More from New York Times article:

      “In a sign of deep vulnerability and of unease among what is supposed to be his political base, only 26 percent of Democratic voters said the party should renominate him in 2024.

      Mr. Biden has said repeatedly that he intends to run for re-election in 2024. At 79, he is already the oldest president in American history, and concerns about his age ranked at the top of the list for Democratic voters who want the party to find an alternative.

      The backlash against Mr. Biden and desire to move in a new direction were particularly acute among younger voters. In the survey, 94 percent of Democrats under the age of 30 said they would prefer a different presidential nominee.”

      Well, Robbie, if Walker’s doing that, then he clearly sees a problem with the current trajectory of his campaign and is doing something about it? How does that make Walker himself a bad candidate rather than his outgoing campaign staff bad at their jobs?

      – I’m always happy when candidates and campaigns that are performing poorly reassess and retool in an effort to get back on track. Clearly, Walker and his campaign needed to do something differently because he can still win. That’s how bad 2022 is for Democrats.

      However, campaigns can’t fire the candidate and Walker has shown himself to be a very weak candidate so far. He lied to his staff about the number of children he has and he usually performs so poorly in interviews his staff tries to keep him away from softball FoxNews interviews.

      When I noted Walker was a mediocre, at best, candidate who could cost the party a prime pickup opportunity in a great year, I got attacked by the usual circus clowns in this forum. Of course, when I noted that Angle was a terrible candidate in 2010, the same clowns said I was wrong.

    120. jason says:

      BS.

      Outside of Schumer’s b-tch NYC, I can’t think of anyone here who thought Angle was a great candidate.

    124. jason says:

      Wow, Amoral Scumbag is really upset about that 29 for Biden.

      Can we have an attack on Oz too?

    125. Wes says:

      Given the choice between a man who lied about his number of illegitimate children and a man who ran over his ex-wife, is currently in court because of refusal to pay child support, and blocked an investigation into child abuse, I’ll take the former, Robbie.

      It’s up to Walker to make the case for why his problems stemming from former promiscuity are less egregious than Warnock’s, but that’s how I look at things.

      At least Walker did realize his once-consistent lead over Warnock had evaporated because of a mediocre campaign, but I would argue that realization at least makes him competent for the campaign.

      Since you brought up, Sharron Angle, I guess I should remind you she hired a campaign manager with no knowledge of Nevada and spent much time after the primary speaking at events well away from the state, thus ceding valuable campaign time to Harry Reid. She never once tried a course correction and ultimately couldn’t even keep Reid below 50%. That Walker has realized the problems with his campaign and decided to be proactive about countering them rather than ignore them as Angle has done should indicate to you he has at least some latent campaign skills and ability to try to improve his chances of winning.

    126. SanDiegoCitizen says:

      115. The RCP average shows Trump slightly ahead:

      Real Clear Polling Average 4/19 – 6/29

      Trump 44.8%
      Biden 43.%
      Trump +1.8

      I still see Biden as an underdog, even to Trump. As have previously stated, I would prefer DiSantis in 2024. I think 80 years of age is too old for a president.

    127. Wes says:

      Actually, Jason, Rdelbov said Angle was a great candidate. Of course Rdelbov also said in the 2012 MI-Sen campaign, Stabenow would lose because some rich Republican would suddenly decide to jump into the race and challenge her. He also said McCain would win the Electoral College in 2008 even if Obama clobbered him nationally.

      Take that as you will.

    128. Bitterlaw says:

      Jason – Please clarify. I do not believe that you call me a woke virtue signaler. You do call me a Radnor elitist but as many have been quoted in history, “It ain’t bragging if you can back it up.” Various forms of that quote have been attributed to athletes and others. I am fortunate to live in a great town with great public schools. It does not make me superior to anybody but I won’t apologize for it, either.

    129. jason says:

      Actually, Jason, Rdelbov said Angle was a great candidate.”

      So did Jerry Whitrow or whatever his name was.

    130. jason says:

      Jason – Please clarify. I do not believe that you call me a woke virtue signaler.”

      Correct. I don’t believe I ever used that term at all here.

      Tgca is a pathological liar.

    131. Wes says:

      To be fair, Rdel never said Christine O’Donnell was a good Senate candidate, though some on here such as D ondero touted her. At least Rdel took off the rose-colored glasses occasionally and admitted every Republican wasn’t the greatest candidate in history.

    132. jason says:

      In 2010, most of us here favored Sue Lowden, who was hated by the Paulbots because she didn’t allow the Paulbots to hijack the R state convention. They made the difference and Lowden lost the primary to certified moron Sharron Angle.

      I still believe Lowden would have beaten Reid handily.

    133. Phil says:

      Baris has Trump up 5 over Biden in a head to head.

      The idea of Biden beating Trump head to head is laughable.

    134. jason says:

      You do call me a Radnor elitist”

      Correct. I think you are overly influenced by your liberal friends and neighbors, but hey, maybe if I was a Radnor elitist I would succumb to my surroundings too.

    135. jason says:

      Amoral Scumbag is the only one here that would vote for Biden over Trump.

    136. Wes says:

      I’ll disagree there, Jason. I don’t think any Republican who actually ran would have beaten Reid. Lowden had a polling lead initially but lost it after talking about bartering for health care services with an infamous comment about chickens and continuing down the rabbit hole of talking about it rather than saying she misspoke and making coherent statements on the issue. That indicates to me Lowden would also have been a weak general election candidate–though not as weak as Angle–and would have lost as well.

      I believe former Congressman Jon Porter would have beaten Reid, thus accounting for why Reid aggressively targeted him for defeat in 2008. Of course rather than get his revenge on Reid, Porter took a job in the private sector and declined to enter the race despite openly considering it at one point.

    137. jason says:

      Hey wes, want to see what you said about Lowden vs. Angle at the time?

      Wes says:
      May 21, 2010 at 11:01 am

      I stil tentatively lean toward Lowden in this race, but she seriously needs to quit making gaffes and hurting her own chances. as for Angle, she has great ideas, but she’s a CFG-backed candidate. Candidates running under CFG’s aegis tend to fare poorly because they’re rookie candidates who know how to get primary voters behind them but have no clue about how to attract voters in the general.”

      You were right.

    139. Tgca says:

      Being called a moron by Jadon is like wearing a badge of courage.

      It generally means he has lost the debate and can’t think of anything else constructive to offer.

      The US and European politicians have brought up legitimate concerns about Ukraine and its corruption, as evidenced by the article I posted earlier, and Jadon calls that APPEASEMENT.

      Jadon is like the left screaming RACIST everytime you rebut his claims. He has nothing better to offer.

      The fact of the matter is Europe is tying funds to the rebuilding effort of Ukraine to sharp reduction of corruption in Ukraine so funds are not misappropriated, and evidently such accountability offends Jadon.

    140. Wes says:

      Apparently I was on target in both instances, Jason.

    141. jason says:

      We will have to disagree. I think Lowden would have won by at least 4, a certified moron like Angle only lost by 5. But we will never know.

      Ok. I will look for posts when I get a chance where Jadon called Bitter woke and a virtue signaler. Maybe not the exact words in that combination I use but those words or similar were used.

      Jadon argued over and over Bitter supported and gave into the woke crowd. That is the same as being woke in my book.

      Jadon has routinely accused Bitter of virtue signaling and currying favor with his elitist neighbors, trying to impress them and saying things he thinks others want to hear.

      Jadon specifically challenged Bitter on his virtue signaling of marriage where Bitter puts himself above others that are divorced, specifically more than twice.

      Maybe one of the bright lights here can help me with the following:

      2) What evidence, if any, has ever been presented showing ballot harvesting taking place in a state where it was illegal, during the 2020 election?

      3) If it isnt illegal anywhere, what is the difference between ballot harvesting and GOTV efforts, except ballot harvesting is just smarter, more efficient and more effective than traditional GOTV efforts?

    163. EML says:

      1) The National Conference of State Legislatures has a good breakdown of who can pick up/deliver ballots: https://www.ncsl.org/research/elections-and-campaigns/vopp-table-10-who-can-collect-and-return-an-absentee-ballot-other-than-the-voter.aspx

      2) See 2000 Mules. Also, in 2018/19 the election for NC-09 was infamously redone because of illegal ballot harvesting.

      3) It has to do with chain of custody. If I’m a Democratic operative, I can walk around my neighborhood, offering to collect and deposit people’s absentee ballots. I then chuck all of the Republican ballots in the garbage and only deliver the Democratic ones.

    164. Phil says:

      The answer to #1 is Texas, Florida, and NC for sure just off the top of my head. Virtually all red states. Legal for sure in Nevada, California and pretty sure Pennsylvania. Most states overall don’t perrmit it. Probably not permitted in most blue states as well.

    165. Phil says:

      167

      Exactly true on your third point. It’s about chain of custody. In my state the ballot has to be submitted directly by the voter. No third party can handle it. Democrats won’t steal an election in Texas or Florida by ballot harvesting.

    166. Albertus Magnus says:

      #167

      Thanks for the info.

      2) Does 2000 mules provide evidence of lawbreaking? I didnt see it simply because I am sick of the loudmouth s who wont shut up about their theories about stolen elections and never produce ACTUAL EVIDENCE of a CRIME.

      3) So, in the example you mention, does the law require safe chain of custody? Is there documented evidence of any operative throwing out completed ballots? I am not talking about the occasional bad action of some individual person. Is there evidence that such behavior was widespread in a given state or district that would have been sufficient to steal an election?

    170. jason says:

      1) In what state, if any, is balloting harvesting against the law?”

      “WASHINGTON – A divided Supreme Court on Thursday upheld a controversial Arizona law that limits how voters may return absentee ballots, weighing into a raging national debate over voting rights by curbing the landmark 1965 Voting Rights Act for the second time in less than a decade.”

      Associate Justice Samuel Alito wrote the opinion for a 6-3 majority, joined by the court’s conservatives. Associate Justice Elena Kagan wrote a dissent for the court’s liberals that framed the majority opinion as “tragic.”

      The case, the most significant to deal with voting rights to come before the court since 2013, dealt with two provisions of Arizona’s voting law approved long before the 2020 election. State officials passed a law in 2016 barring unions and advocacy organizations from collecting voters’ mail-in ballots, a practice critics call “ballot harvesting.”

      Ballot harvesting is illegal in PA, btw.

      Laws in seven states and D.C. only allow another person to return a voter’s ballot if that voter meets specific criteria, such as having a disability or qualifying for an emergency ballot.

      Alaska
      Florida
      Connecticut
      D.C.
      Georgia
      Kentucky
      Pennsylvania

      “North Carolina allows only a close relative or verified legal guardian to return the ballot, and a witness must sign the absentee ballot envelope. The 2018 case showed there was not enough of a deterrent to prevent fraud, even though the perpetrator was apprehended. In response, the state assembly passed a law to make the names of those who requested absentee ballots confidential and strengthened the penalties for misconduct.

      But 26 states allow a voter to designate someone else to return their ballot for them, according to the National Conference of State Legislatures. A dozen of those states limit the number of ballots that the designee can collect and return on behalf of voters. And 10 states allow the ballot to be returned by the voter’s family member.”

    171. jason says:

      171

      And where would that be?”

      We can start with AZ, PA, NV, WI, and GA, all which had serious signature verification chain of custody, illegal/unmanned drop box issues and many other problems.

      Just last week a judge deemed drop boxes illegal in WI, a state that Trump “lost” by 20k votes. 500 illegal drop boxes, just 40 illegal votes in each one would cancel that “lead”.

    172. jason says:

      2) What evidence, if any, has ever been presented showing ballot harvesting taking place in a state where it was illegal, during the 2020 election?”

      The number of people who see the U.S. as a reliable partner to their country has increased, in some cases dramatically, over the last year, according to a Pew Research Center survey released Wednesday. A median of 61% of people in 17 countries polled (not including the U.S.) said they had a favorable view of the country.

      Sweden, South Korea and Australia are among the countries where the impression of the United States improved significantly in the last year. In Sweden, for example, 84% of adults polled said that the U.S was a reliable partner, up 21 points from 2021. In South Korea, 83% of people see the U.S. as a reliable partner — up 25 points over the previous year — and in Canada, 84% of people believe so — an increase of 16 points.

      Attitudes toward NATO are also largely positive. Views of the military alliance have improved in several countries since last year, including Germany and the U.S., as well as nonmember Sweden, according to the survey. The number of Swedes who have overall favorable opinions of NATO rose from 77% in February to 84% in April.”

      The reason is oil prices are high. The Saudis know that “producing more” will lower the price, so there is not much incentive, they might be producing more and earning less.

      Biden doesn’t understand that domestic oil production increases it what will drive prices down. But he is beholden to the far left who want $10 a gallon gas.

      Cheney, unlike a lot of the perpetually angry populists in this forum, is an actual conservative with an actual conservative voting record. She’s just chosen not to continually debase herself by ignoring and excusing the awfulness of MAGA daddy. But in this party, fealty to Trump is all that matters so she’s way out of step.

      Cheney’s undoing will be her repeatedly poor political instincts.

      – In 2014, she tried to bust her way into the Senate, but voters weren’t even close to being ready to toss out Enzi. She had to back down quickly.

      – In 2020, she passed on a layup Senate seat to stay in the House. She believed, wrongly, MAGA daddy’s influence and that of McCarthy would evaporate after MAGA daddy lost. Wrong.

      Now, Cheney is at the tip of the spear investigating Trump’s insane efforts to overturn the election in 2020. I admire her willingness to tell people like you things you don’t want to hear, but it’s also clear she decided to Joan of Arc herself.

      Despite your stupid and incorrect insinuation, I’ll answer your question. They both suck. I think Trump was a bad president because he was a morally and mentally corrupted person. That’s why he polled in the low 40’s with a roaring economy.

      I think Biden is a bad president because he is beholden to failed liberal policies that have never worked anywhere or at any time. Times were going to be tough as the country and the world exited from the stupid lockdowns that Trump’s guy Fauci pushed, but his policies have exacerbated them.

      Frankly, I think the Republican Party should be tickled pink it lost the presidency in 2020 because all of the structural problems that exist right now (inflation, worker shortages, supply chain problems, war in Ukraine, etc.) would have existed had Trump won. And had Trump been president with conditions even half as bad as they are now, Republicans would be facing an extinction event in November.

      Principle is believing the same thing both before and after a major event happens.

You, on the other hand, hated MAGA daddy before he won in 2016 and then you became his biggest shill the moment he won in 2016.

      It’s hard to give the same level of legitimacy to a convicted felon as it is to someone who did not engage in criminal activity. Fair or not as it may be to the content of his product, the felony conviction hanging over his head does require one to consider the legitimacy of his products.

      But the game is up, nobody believes anything this sad, bitter, amoral scumbag says here anymore.

      – No. The game is up on you and has been since you decided to be a loyal butt licker for Trump after having hated his guts for two years before he won.

      You’re a fraud and you always have been. And the minute DeSantis or some other credible candidate gets in the race in 2024 (Cotton, Pompeo, Scott), you’ll start to find things that are wrong with them because you’ve decided to be all MAGA all the time.

      If Donnie decided taxes should go up, you’d be for tax hikes. If Donnie decided the country needed to go green, you’d be all for it. If Donnie decided abortion should be legal until the umbilical cord is cut, you’d be right there with him.

      You’ve shown over and over again you don’t understand anything about politics as evidenced by your insane belief Republicans shouldn’t focus on the suburbs anymore. You just want to be for the guy you’re for regardless of how bad the candidate is. If Trump had lost in 2016, you’d still hate his guts and you’d be attacking those who supported him in this forum.

      You’re a fraud. Nothing more.

    210. jason says:

      and then you became his biggest shill the moment he won in 2016.”

      Trump’s guy Fauci pushed,”

      LOL

      Fauci was just a member of Pence’s task force. Yes Trump appointed him, but he never had any power to implement policy.

      – MAGA daddy made Fauci the face of America’s response to covid. That’s a fact. He turned the White House podium over to Fauci multiple times in 2020. Fauci became the only person who mattered in the subject all because Donnie let it happen.

      Some of us saw what a disaster Fauci was early on, but you repeatedly wanted to give Fauci another presidential medal of freedom because you didn’t want to get cross with anything MAGA daddy said.

      But what’s even funnier is you blame this on Pence. That’s a recurring theme for Trump hacks like you. Donnie is this great hirer of high quality talent, but when the “high quality” disappoints, you shameless fools always blame someone other than MAGA daddy.

      In your sad, sad world, MAGA daddy can never fail. he can only be failed by those around him. Well, who picked all of the crappy people who were around Donnie, you dunce?

      No one listened to or looked to Pence as the Go To guy on COVID. He was simply a figurehead. All media and gubbermint officials and CongressCritters dealt directly with Dr. Fow-chee and not Pence. All press conferences had nearly all the face time and questions with Dr. Fow-chee and not Pence.

      The good doctor’s role was to advise and make recommendations like any other advisor such as cabinet members or generals in war. They are relied upon for their expertise and leaders are expected to weigh that advice heavily.

      Stop pushing the Pence crap. That is just your deflection because you failed miserably at misjudging Dr. Fow-chee.

      Pence had as much credibility on leading the COVID team as Kamala has on leading border issues.

      I think Americans stand by Zelenskyy because he is standing up to an invasion and kudos to him for that. They don’t admire him for his politics or his corruption.

      Jadon can’t deny the fact that future rebuilding aid to Ukraine is contingent on him SHARPLY reducing the corruption in his own gubbermint. That came out of European leaders who also supposedly admire him for standing up to Russia.

      What does that tell you they think of him personally? They don’t trust him!

    219. Tgca says:

      Jadon trying to have it both ways. He thinks advisors to POTUS on economic or military decisions should be held accountable but gives a pass to Dr. Fow-chee for being in a similar role.

      Under Jadon’s “Dr. Fow-chee rule”, no gubbermint advisor is accountable for any recommendations or decision they make if POTUS agreed or approved of it. Therefore, no reason to ever fire any advisor because POTUS calls the shots.

      Technically, Dr. Fow-chee cannot be fired under normal circumstances but the pressure on him to leave would have been enormous.

      He is a corrupt egomaniac who is indirectly responsible for many of the deaths and illnesses we’ve seen since the pandemic because of his irresponsible influence on various healthcare and treatment protocols.

      Numerous medical professionals that are more qualified him and treat patients disagree with him but have been sidelined because of the bureaucracy of his office.

      I think when history looks back on this event, he will be vilified for his incompetence as a bureaucratic hack that stood in the way of REAL science and medical treatments that could have saved lives.

      I hope he is prosecuted if the GOP takes the WH back in 2024 and imprisoned as an example of a corrupt lying bureaucrat that was in this for his own fame and fortune.

      – If Biden’s approval rating as measured by the exit polls in 40% or lower, Erick will be correct.

      In 2018, Trump’s approval rating was around 42% or 43% in the RCP average on election day. The exit polls showed his approval rating at 45%.

      Trump’s standing led to a bloodbath in the House, but a good result in the Senate because of where the races were. However, Trump’s approval rating was low enough that it prevented Republicans from winning a few races it should have like Montana and Arizona.

      As for Biden’s job approval, my guess is it won’t be anywhere as low as this when measured by the exit polls on election day. Democrats may be frustrated and are willing to express it to pollsters, but when they show up to vote they will view things differently simply because they don’t want to hurt their own team.

      That said, Obama’s job approval as measured by the exit polls in 2010 was 45%. Even if Biden were to become this popular by November, the Democrats, at least in the House, when get drubbed.

      Actually, both Trump and I opposed the “recommendations”. Trump did not follow most of them anyway. Nobody was more anti-lockdown, anti-mask, and anti-restrictions than I was.

      Outside the initial lockdowns in early 2020, most of the rest of the COVID restrictions were implemented by governors, not Trump.

      I have been clear I think Trump bears responsibility for hiring Fauci, and I approved of it at the time. I also made clear most of the opposition to Fauci here was because he was a “Democrat”, which I thought and still think was abject partisan stupidity.

      But I think SDC says it best. The guy who gave Fauci real power was Biden, not Trump.

      “Fauci had been working for the federal government in the health field since the 1980s. Trump inherited him, and became disillusioned with him. If Trump had been re-elected, Fauci would have been gone.

      He’d also like to have everyone forget he said Republicans shouldn’t waste their time in the suburbs anymore”

      Never said that either. I said if the GOP strategy was “win back the suburbs” they were destined to keep losing elections. I said the future of the GOP is as a working class party coalition including working class minorities everywhere including suburbs and urban areas with rural and exurban voters. The days where the GOP could win elections with just the suburban vote is long gone, there aren’t enough GOP suburban voters to constitute a majority. But I never said to abandon the suburbs and never said the GOP “shouldn’t waste their time” there.

    247. jason says:

      Nah. Fauci was the recognized premier expert in infectious diseases and probably the most renowned person in the field long before Trump.

From 1983 to 2002, Fauci was one of the world’s most frequently cited scientists across all scientific journals.In 2008, President George W.

      Here is why it is stupid to pretend wind is a reliable energy source;

      “July 11, 2022 at 9:27 AM PDT
      Wind power — a key source of electricity in Texas — is being sidelined just when the Lone Star State needs it most, with turbines generating less than a 10th of what they’re capable of.

      A scorching heat wave is pushing the Texas grid to the brink. Power demand is surging as people crank up air conditioners. But meanwhile, wind speeds have fallen to extremely low levels, and that means the state’s fleet of turbines is at just 8% of their potential output.”

      I guess Jadon accepts that the corruption in the 2020 election is no big deal and he won’t whine about that any more.

      Fortunately, the powers that be in Europe know Ukraine is corrupt and they use the phrase “SHARPLY reduce corruption” when speaking of Ukraine getting access to rebuilding funds.

      The United States Institute of Peace has a good take on corruption in the Ukraine,and Putin’s role in creating it. Pushing Putin out is a major step in removing corruption from the Ukraine:

      “Putin’s 22-year regime has pursued this goal the way it has built authoritarian power at home, using business monopolies and secret funding to knit networks of corrupt business magnates who help shift those nations’ policies to the Kremlin’s liking.

      “The very fact that Russia had to resort to” military invasions of Ukraine in 2014 and more massively this year “is testament to the fact that Ukraine had the capacity to resist” the Kremlin’s efforts to control the country through corrupt officials and business, Tkeshelashvili said. The significant, if still incomplete, reforms that were compelled in Ukraine by its grassroots pro-democracy movements were enough to disrupt Putin’s control-via-corruption strategy and sustain Ukraine’s movement toward a Europe-oriented democracy, she said.”

      After Hunter Biden’s corrupt escapades in the Ukraine, with Joe Biden, Obama, and Hillary Clinton’s apparent acquiescence, I find it very hypocritical for Americans to point the finger at the Ukraine and accuse them of corruption. I don’t remember much of a discussion during Trump’s impeachment trial of the immorality and corruption of the Biden family basically extorting money from the Ukraine in exchange for support. It’s total hypocrisy now for Americans to self-righteously accuse the Ukraine of corruption, without discussing the American role in it.

      I agree with Jason, let’s focus now on defeating the Russians, then we can address the corruption issue — and the American involvement in it.

      NEW NYT/Siena poll of GOP primary voters shows majority preferring Trump alternative as 24 nominee:

      Trump 49
      DeSantis 25
      Cruz 7
      Pence 6
      Haley 6

      – Donnie in decline. A year ago, he was polling in the 80% range. Now, he’s slightly below 50% without other possible candidates actually going after him. Also, don’t forget Clinton led Obama in national polls by more than 20 points before Iowa and 10-15 points even after Obama beat her in Iowa in January 2008.

      It’s no wonder MAGA daddy is itching to announce he’s running. He’s losing altitude and it will probably continue. And if DeSantis scores a big win in his governor’s race, it could really put the screws to Donnie.

      MAGA daddy’s best hope is a big field that spreads the anti-Trump vote out. That’s what got him through the first half of the 2016 primaries. I’ll be watching Cruz. If he runs a no-hope campaign, I’d have to guess he’s running interference for Donnie in hopes of a cabinet slot or SCOTUS appointment.

      That’s like blaming prostitution on Bill Clinton, Eliot Spitzer, or David Vitter. It’s a silly argument no one takes seriously.

      Ukraine is corrupt because of its people and leaders. Many aspects of its gubbermint are corrupt with specific notation to its very corrupt court system which has kept serious anti-corruption measures from taking place in every leader in Ukraine through Zelenskyy today. It’s just part of doing business in Ukraine and Zelenskyy, like his predecessors has had a hand in the corruption.

      If you wish to argue it’s a real challenge to rid Ukraine of corruption due to how widespread it is, that is fine. But to deny it does not run through the veins of its leaders is absurd.

We don’t need to wait until the war is over to send that message to Zelenskyy.

      That being said, I don’t think there will be a Trump-DeSantis primary fight. One or other will bow out.

      In my view, the best play for Trump at this point is to declare he is not running and endorse DeSantis. It preserves his influence and makes him kingmaker. It also ensures a pardon if the woke DOJ invents any charges against him.

      But there are 90 year olds like Warren Buffet that could run a business empire or the US.

      Trump does not show any of the cognitive decline Biden does, so I would assume he could govern to 82.

      The question is, looking long term, is it good for the R party and the country to keep new blood from taking over. If the new blood is Kamala Harris, then maybe the answer is yes. If its DeSantis, maybe not.

      Trump would probably only need about 35% of the R primary vote to get the nomination, assuming there is more than one adversary, and there will be.

      – In 2016, 35% was enough to win races when the main competition was Cruz, Rubio, and Kasich. That’s almost precisely the number he got in South Carolina and it was enough for the next two months as everyone stayed in the race thinking they could win if everyone else quit. Remember all of the “if only so-and-so quit, Rubio would win” stuff?

      If the race effectively becomes Trump vs. DeSantis, 35% won’t be enough. Sure, people like Pompeo or Haley or Hogan or even Scott might run, but few of them will make it Iowa and almost certainly not to New Hampshire.

      By the time we get to South Carolina, the race could easily be Trump and Desantis with another one or two scooping up 5% of the vote. That would effectively make the race a genuine one-one-one and that’s something Trump never faced in 2016. By the time the race was down to Trump and Cruz, it was May 2016.

      DeSantis does not have the widespread support demographically that Trump has.

      My guess is Trump is not running in 2024 and only using this time to rebuild his image as the successful POTUS who was denied a 2nd term due to fraud and corruption but where the country paid the price for it under Biden.

      Another alternative would be a Trump-DeSantis ticket, where DeSantis would be the obvious “heir” for 2028. The problem with that scenario is that if Trump’s second presidency does not go well it will kill DeSantis’ chances.

    313. Robbie says:

      DeSantis may not run under the belief it will be easier to win an open race for the nomination in 2028, but he ought to ask Chris Christie how that strategy worked for him when he decided not to run in September 2011.

      And anyone who would vote for Trump over DeSantis when Trump could only serve one term and would be as old as Biden has lost the plot.

      DeSantis is as skilled a Republican as I’ve seen in a long time. He gets the base, he delivers on conservative agenda items, and he’s popular. Clinton did that for Democrats in the 1990’s.

      Yeah, and therein is the problem.

      – Trump has 100% name ID after four years as president. DeSantis is the governor of a state. Right now, that matters and it’s what’s keeping Trump afloat.

      Once DeSantis (should he run) gets out and makes the case to voters who don’t pay attention closely, you’ll see his name ID rise, his poll standing rise, and Trump bleed off even more support.

      If DeSantis runs, it’s all downhill for MAGA daddy. There may be enough residual voter support left to get him across the line in the primary, but he’ll leave the general wounded and he’ll be forced to carry the burden of his four chaotic years as president and he’ll want to do nothing but talk about 2020.

      The country isn’t interested in a race with one candidate who’s 82 and the other who’s 78. Repeats don’t happen for a reason and the last one didn’t go well for the guy who lost the first time, Adalai Stevenson.

      Given Trump is a known political figure, am not seeing a sudden change in his polling unless a health concern arises.

      I would prefer DeSantis. But a return to Trump’s economic policies is appealing; and it will take someone as tough as Trump to cut through the leftist BS and deadwood. So I am on board, despite not being particularly fond of Trump.

      – This is not a commanding lead for Trump at all. A former president with 100% name ID is polling at 50% with his own party just a year after polling around 80% in similar polls.

      The governor of Florida, who probably isn’t well known outside of those who are very engaged, is already polling at 25% without making a national push. Remember, FoxNews’ largest primetime audience is often three million or so. So going on that show really doesn’t get a person much outside of the committed partisans.

      The poll is a flashing red light for Trump and it’s why he’s apparently itching to announce he’s running now. Trump may win the primary, but he’s fallen to this level without any sort of campaign run against him by people who are likely to run in the 2024 primary.

      How much lower will MAGA daddy be six months from now after DeSantis has just won a big re-election victory? How low will Trump be a year from now after DeSantis has been in the presidential race for several months?

      – And if basically 30% of the general population want Biden to run, that means a solid majority of Democrats want him to run.

      Numbers like 35% and 29% are awful for such known quantities.

      Trump is a sure thing policy wise at least, DeSantis is a gamble.

      – First, Trump doesn’t care about policy. He just spent four years proving that. All he cares about is personal power and forcing others to bend to his whims.

      Second, the idea DeSantis might not be sufficiently conservative is ridiculous.

    330. Phil says:

      DeSantis would run a strong GE campaign. Where he has some work to do is matching Trump’s strength in the rust belt. No Republican has come close to Trump’s performance there over the last thirty years.

    331. jason says:

      First, Trump doesn’t care about policy.”

      Zzzzzz……

      Lowest unemployment (including minorities), higher workforce participation, energy independence, lower taxes, higher wages, conservative judges, investment in military….

      I would say Trump cared a lot about policies.

      – Is this really the kind of nonsense you want back in the White House? Navarro is probably in line to be Trump’s Treasury Secretary. He’s nuttier than a fruitcake.

    334. jason says:

    336. jason says:

      I never liked Navarro. Or the idiot he had at commerce. I have said so many times. I think Trump’s AFL-CIO agenda of stupid tariffs and trade wars was asinine.

      I think Trump was a great President and I certainly would like to see him in the WH instead of Joe Biden.

      Both can be true.

    337. jason says:

      You said Trump was a sure thing policy wise and DeSantis was a gamble.”

      That doesn’t mean I don’t think DeSantis is a conservative.

      I meant Trump is a known quantity vs. DeSantis.

      I will readily admit DeSantis is more conservative than Trump since I have made the point here for years I never considered Trump a conservative.

    338. SanDiegoCitizen says:

      Trump would act decisively to end the Ukraine crisis. His comments in a Fox Business interview were pretty aggressive — he is right to say Putin would not have invaded the Ukraine during his presidency. And he has no intention of letting it continue.

      https://youtu.be/X-c1Me0Kezg

    339. jason says:

      The reason why I think the Pence is guilty of treason to at least Trump”

      I actually agree with this.

      Not about certifying the election, I think Pence was right about that.

      But Pence was way too accommodating on voter fraud, so in that sense he was a traitor to Trump and a disservice to the country.

    340. jason says:

      he is right to say Putin would not have invaded the Ukraine during his presidency”

      Absolutely.

      Putin would never have launched a full scale invasion of Ukraine with Trump as President.

      Not in a million years.

    341. Tgca says:

      Trump is known to shoot off from the hip but he is also known to be easily smoothed over and brought around with the right managing and butt kissing politicians are often so good at doing.

      Trump is definitely a narcissist and egomaniac but often that is what makes great leaders too. Trump grew up fighting dirty with the gruff and ruff in the real estate world and knows how to forgive and forget when it’s in his interest. We’ve seen this time and again.

      My suspicion is that Trump wants the continued admiration of the masses and not the everyday nuances of running a country. That is why I’m not so sure he’ll run again but instead play a major role otherwise.

      It would be wise for DeSantis to court Trump rather than challenge him at this time because Trump, who has a very high approval rating in the GOP can be an asset and mentor for DeSantis.

    342. jason says:

      Btw, attacking Elon Musk is stupid for several reasons.

      Here is a guy who is trying to make Twitter less woke. A billionaire who says he will vote Republican.

    343. Tgca says:

      I despise Pence as a politician regardless of his personal character or conservative roots. He is a political coward! He will have little GOP support and lose all the disenfranchised working class voters that Trump brought into the party because they see Pence as a weakling who they can’t trust and that will not fight for them.

      No one REALLY expected Pence to forego his legal responsibilities but he did as little as possible to help raise the fraud issues but then months later after Trump’s popularity was on the rise again tried to change his tune as if he was by Trump’s side fighting against fraud all along.

      I would NEVAH vote for Pence. I’d write in another candidate 1st. He is not presidential material to me.

    344. Tgca says:

      I agree Trump is not conservative by the measurement we measure libs and conservatives. He is more center right.

      I believe Trump has never been politically ideological. His focus is on results and the best way to get them, whether in business or politics so he chose his alliances carefully.

      He knew to be a successful POTUS he had to stack the courts with conservatives or that he had to take certain conservative positions to energize the base.

      Conservatives know Trump is not ideologically conservative as well but they accept he will do what he says and fight the radicals and that has always been good enough for them compared to other conservative leaders.

      What’s the point of having conservatives like Bush or Graham who will sell you out at times or disregard you after they get your vote?

    345. Tina says:

      Pence is an idiot. He promised that we all be heard the day before.

      Then, while trump was speaking, he dropped his I cannot do anything bs.

      What did he mean by we would all be heard the day before? Why drop his I cannot do anything bs while trump is speaking?

    346. Tina says:

      Actually Navarro is right for several reasons.

      While the jebots Fraudci lied about COVID’s origins, Navarro pointed to China/Ccp.

      A major reason gas prices are so high; radical groups trying to stop drilling:

      “A coalition of environmental groups this week sued the Biden administration in an effort to stop more than 3,500 permit applications from energy companies to drill for oil and gas on federal lands.

      The groups argued the administration hasn’t considered the damage that climate-changing carbon dioxide emissions from drilling does to endangered species, and that permit approvals in Wyoming and New Mexico violated federal laws including the Endangered Species Act.”

      Scoop: Republican nominee in Colorado raising decent money, including putting $1M of his own cash in the race.

      On paper, O’Dea shaping up as the best Senate GOP candidate in a crop of glaringly weak recruits

      – This race seems to be one that goes Republican if Biden’s approval rating is truly as low as the public polling suggests. He’s a much better candidate than Walker or Oz, but they’re running in states that are far more open to electing Republicans.

    385. Tgca says:

      the sleeper senate races of ct ,OR and washington state will give the republican at least 1 or 2 more seats

    387. Wes says:

      No,they won’t, Ken. I’m all for hoping Republicans win big in November, but Republicans won’t be viable in any of those states. Themis Klarides may come within 10 points of Danang Dick, but that’s as much as the GOP can realistically expect from those inelastically liberal states this year.

    388. Tgca says:

      I would love to see the GOP win in OR or WA.

      It would drive the libs and the ANTIFA locals mad.

      I still romanticize about that night in 1994 that Speaker Foley was ousted.

    389. Wes says:

      O’Dea is the strongest GOP Senate recruit in Colorado since 2014. Bennet is a chronic underperformer who posted unimpressive numbers against two weak opponents who were grossly out of step with the state. Fortunately the COGOP also nominated a good gubernatorial candidate who, despite being near certain to lose, should run fairly well. That means O’Dea has a realistic outside shot of taking down Bennet.

    390. DW says:

      Wes, what ken says isn’t impossible, given the economic collapse Biden has brought about, but we would need to see some polling data, and thus far the GOP candidates in these states have not even revealed any internal polling showing a ‘close’ race.

      As you say, these states are inelastic…an appropriate term. This country is so deeply divided, the days are long gone when a candidate like Reagan could carry 49 states against a candidate like Walter Mondale.

      If that same scenario was around today, Reagan would only get 38 states, tops, with DE and CT close but falling just short. Every state further left is completely out of reach.

    391. Tgca says:

      I think I the GOP can turn up turnout among Latinos in OR and WA if they offer up some tacos.

      I’m not sure trading votes for tacos is illegal. Pass it off as feeding the poor so they have some sustenance to get out and vote.

    392. Wes says:

      Wyden is too personally popular and fits Oregon too well to lose, Tg–especially against the loony Jo Rae Perkins.

      Murray has the advantage of a state absolutely dominated by the Seattle area. Republicans can realistically make that relatively close, but topping Murray in the general election isn’t going to happen.

    393. Wes says:

      Oregon is off the table because Republicans have a lunatic as their nominee, DW.

      Washington is off the table because Republicans aren’t going to be able to run well enough in Seattle to get to 50%. Remember, Washington has a jungle primary followed by a top-two general election.

      Connecticut is a remote possibility because the GOP is likely to nominate their best candidate since Lowell Weicker in the ’70s and ’80s. Toppling Danang Dick in a state where the GOP never managed to win a statewide race in either 2010 or 2014 is a reach. If Klarides wins though, she’ll be the seventh seat Republicans gain in November.

      As far as Washington, I’m not seeing any evidence Murray is in any way vulnerable. She has five elections under her belt, never having won by less than 4%. Even after she claimed Bin Laden built day care centers, she won by 12. With Washington’s jungle primary meaning the general will always be a one-on-one affair, I don’t see how Republicans–who haven’t made it to 50% for Senator or Governor in decades–have any chance of doing anything but replicating Dino Rossi’s 2010 showing.

That combined with government handing out thousands to each individual is a combination creating a level of stagflation that we’ve never seen before.

      – Two things about this.

      First, it says a lot about how voters feel about Oz that he’s trailing a guy who had a stroke and hasn’t been seen in two months.

      Second, sometimes the best campaign tactic is to not campaign, or at least not be seen a lot. Trump never seemed to grasp this. His best polling periods often came when he spent a couple of weeks playing golf.

      You can see it by education and by region.

      Trump easily carries non-college GOP in burbs, rural and urban areas. DeSantis carries college educated in urban areas.

      – Bought and paid for Trump huckster Richard Baris now claiming the bulk of DeSantis supporters are Never Trumpers. LOL! Well, I certainly am, but if Never Trumpers comprised 25% of all Republicans nationally or 50% or so of Florida voters, then Trump’s support among party voters during his presidency wouldn’t have been 85% to 90%. Had the Never Trump support been as high as DeSantis’ support level is now, MAGA daddy never would’ve survived the conviction vote on his second impeachment.

      I guess in this forum, it’s wrong to be won over by a candidate you previously disliked? If so, how did you go from saying terrible things about Trump in 2016 to being a big supporter and defender of his? It’s ok for you to change your mind on a candidate/politician, but not me?

    463. Phil says:

      Hated the way he ran his campaign in 2018? Closer than it should have been? He won in a Democratic wave year where every single poll had him losing by 5 or 6 pts.

      By the way, whatever happened to all of the bad oppo research Baris said was going to be dropped on Kemp if he won the primary? Of course, Baris said Perdue still had a chance win that primary and wasn’t down by 30 points. He was sort of right since Kemp won by 52 points.

      – He narrowly beat a guy who was under federal investigation and later went to rehab after being found passed out in a room with a male prostitute.

      DeSantis ran a campaign focused mostly on Trump in a year when Trump’s JA was at or below 45%. Thankfully, Florida had been moving more and more to the right and it hadn’t voted for a Democrat governor since 1994.

      Again, I’m glad DeSantis proved me wrong with his actual governance. In 2019, his governance was conventionally conservative and bore little resemblance to the campaign version of himself he created.

    466. Gordon Allen says:

      That guy in 2018 was treated by the media here as the 2nd coming of Barack Obama ( who carried Florida twice)

      Should I list all the states that Baris got right in 2016, 2018, and 2020, Robbie? I’ve done it for you before. You just conveniently cruise right past it. Want to put his record up against your heroes at Quinnipiac, polling from the Washington Post, NYT, YouGov, Reuters, etc over the last six years? Naw, I didn’t think so.

      How about the ones he got on the number? Want me to list those again? Florida, Ohio, the Virginia Governor’s race?

      The data is available on the record, my friend.

    468. Gordon Allen says:

      Hurricane Michael in October, and it’s effects,cut down the GOP margins in the Panhandle.
      And the GOP primary hurt,as usual because the Dems rallied around the winner,and the GOP did not.
      These factors kept the race from being a 1.5 % win,which had been the norm the previous 2 governor elections.
      And the Dems still had nearly a 350,000 vote registration edge. It’s now plus 175,000 GOP,a 500,000 vote swing.
      Just saying.

    469. Robbie says:

      There wasn’t a lot of polling of a hypothetical matchup in 2018 between Putnam and Gillum, but there are two polls in RCP’s database, both from Gravis.

      Putnam +6 over Gillum
      Putnam +6 over Gillum

      In the same two polls that measured DeSantis vs. Gillum, the results were different.

      Gillum +4 over DeSantis
      DeSantis +3 over Gillum

      The point being DeSantis ran behind where Putnam was polling against Gillum at the same time in 2018.

      Why? Plenty of stories at the time noted some voters were turned off by how closely DeSantis associated himself with Trump, even in the general campaign.

      Maybe none of it mattered, but the little evidence there is says Putnam’s less Trump centric plan played better against Gillum.

      – I think Baris is a bought and paid for Trump hack and I’m skeptical of every piece of data he posts just as I’m skeptical of every poll that’s released from PPP or some other group that explicitly advocates for certain outcomes.

      Every bit of his data oddly skews in favor of Trump. And now facing the possibility that his meal ticket is fading, he laughably claims the bulk of DeSantis’ support comes from Never Trumpers.

      I wish there had been as many Never Trumpers as there are supporting DeSantis in polling right now. Had there been, MAGA daddy would’ve been rightly convicted in 2021 and we wouldn’t be worried about him screwing things up again.

      Absolute insanity: The Biden Admin won’t accept 1 million doses of Monkeypox vaccine from Denmark because the FDA failed to do a timely inspection of the plant — even though EU authorities did inspect the plant and approved its product for use in the EU. https://nypost.com/2022/07/07/biden-admin-snafu-leaves-1-million-monkeypox-doses-in-denmark/

      I’ve always wondered about the Asian vote particularly in California. It has been reliably leftist especially in that state. I wonder if the GOP can ever make inroads into that vote.

      Baris just finished polling Michigan 3 and it shows Peter Meijer is toast in the primary. Another Never Trumper impeachment voter bites the dust.
      ==================================
      It’s not really something that should be celebrated. Biden won the newly gerrymandered MI-03 by 8.5. You can have Meijer or you can have a Democrat.

    484. Phil says:

      Actually, Baris polling showed Meijer had no shot at retaining that seat. His polling showed approximately 45% of Republican primary voters said they would under no circumstances vote for Meijer in the general. The reason is obvious. So Meijer did it to himself. You aren’t going to win a district like that losing a large portion of your base party vote. You need it to win. The only way to replace those votes is to get “grateful” Democrats to cross over and vote for you. Good luck with that. Democrats are voting for the Democrat in the general.

      So long congressman. You can’t give the finger to your base and then expect to win – especially in a district that’s D+3.

      Baris is a great pollster with a great record.

      AMoral Scumbag doesn’t like him because he only likes leftwing partisan agenda pollsters.

      And DeSantis only won because he ran close to Trump.

      He even out polled Scott, who was much more of a mainstream R that didn’t run particularly close to Trump like DeSantis did.

      And of course, DeSantis has governed very close to Trump also.

      THAT is why he is popular in FL.

    490. jason says:

      There is no doubt DeSantis is getting some Never Trumper support, look even a pathological liar troll like Amoral Scumbag pretends to support him.

      But that is not a bad thing IF he can also hang on to Trump’s base. We still don’t know about that “if”. But he has to remember the Trump base is at least 10 times the Never Trumper morons.

      If DeSantis can bring some unity to the R party while still appealing to working class voters of all ethnic groups fine with me.

    491. jason says:

      where the state party is giving a hand to Trump-endorsed Kari Lake.”

      Sometimes that doesn’t work.

      We can probably thank the MSM for promoting Trump non-stop during the 2016 primaries because they wanted him to be the nominee.

      Predictit has the R favored to win even though Kari Lake is 2-1 favorite to win the nomination.

    492. Phil says:

      It’s funny that real wood flooring is considered upscale these days. When I was a kid, we lived in some old buildings that had real wood floors and they were not a desired luxury. I can not tell you how many times I got splinters from cracked and uneven or separating and rotting wood or injuries from protruding nails, not to mention the roaches and mice scattering through cracks or openings. My stepfather usually covered the floors with linoleum and that was considered an improvement. I remember some hideous green marble linoleum at one place.

      How times have changed that real wood floors are a luxury today.

      …and Bitter is right about wooden floors holding smells or stains.

    511. Tina says:

      Back in the days, carpet was a luxury. People carpeted over wood floors.

    512. Tgca says:

      I think Trump is just as decent or has just as good character as most people that have occupied the WH. He may be obnoxious, in your face, and narcissistic as many presidents have been but I can go down the list of most presidents and find contempt for aspects of their character including Obama, both Bushes, Clinton, Nixon, Johnson, Kennedy, FDR, Truman.

      I think in the last 100 years only Eisenhower, Ford, Carter, and Reagan lead the list of men that did not have negative character flaws that people would detest.

      Many of the Founding Fathers and early presidents were petty, vindictive, hateful, narcissistic, self-centered, in your face men that engaged in improper behavior for their time.

      I’ve always hated carpet because it stinks and is not very clean no matter how often you vacuum or steam clean it.

      J6C is throwing everything it can at Trump and the GOP before they expect to lose the election in a few months.

      Garland would be crazy to prosecute based on such flimsy one-sided evidence that included no cross examination and lying witnesses. It would guarantee his impeachment and forever tarnish his record as a vindictive AG because he did not get onto SCOTUS.

      The GOP would also do its own investigation once it takes over tje House and recommend charges against witnesses lying under oath.

      It could force Cheney to testify and humiliate her and have her prosecuted if she failed to appear. Now wouldn’t that be ironic?

    542. Tgca says:

      Robbie talks about Trump being selfish but fails to criticize Liz Cheney for her selfishness.

      She is willing to destroy the GOP chances of winning to satisfy her ego. She refused to do her job in the House instead focusing on her personal grievances, and was removed for it.

      Liz Cheney has done much more damage to the GOP than Trump the last few years with her constant whining to any libs that would listen to her. She calls tens of millions of GOP voters a cult and implies they’re stoopid.

      I know it’s more of a breakfast or dessert taco but it’s cool refreshing taco on a very warm day.

      Besides, tacos are for anytime.

      I eat tacos for breakfast.
      I eat tacos for lunch.
      I eat tacos for dinner.

      I even get up in the middle of the night to eat tacos.

      It’s what Latinos do. Eat tacos all day.

      – I believe Walker can still win and I might even put him as a slight, slight favorite due to Biden’s low approval rating.

      However, Walker’s an exceptionally weak candidate and he never would’ve run had MAGA daddy not, out of the blue, pushed him to do so.

      If Warnock wins in Georgia in what will be a great year for Republicans, we’ll have no one to blame but Donald Trump. Walker is his guy just as Oz is and just as Masters might be. All three are weak candidates and they’re product of Trump’s desire to exert total dominance over the party.

      Robbie to blame every loss on Trump and credit everyone but Trump for every win. Film at 11….

    558. Robbie says:

      In 2014, the last time the party faced a slate of bad Senate candidates potentially winning the primaries, McConnell sprang into action early. He didn’t hesitate to intervene in primaries to prevent bad candidates from winning.

      Were it not for McConnell’s super pac, Tillis, Roberts, Cochran, and Perdue might have lost their primaries in 2014 to Greg Brannon, Dr. Milton Wolfe, Chris McDaniel, and Paul Broun respectively.

      So far this year, McConnell’s super pac has raised more than $250 million, but has only spent a few million on, of all places, Alabama. McConnell’s personal grievance with Mo(ron) Brooks dictated that.

      Yet, McConnell’s super pac didn’t intervene in PA and hasn’t intervened so far in MO or AZ where Greitens and Masters could put very winnable seats in the loss column. And when there was still some doubt about Walker running last year in GA, McConnell’s super pac reportedly made clear it wouldn’t help some of the high-profile people the NRSC courted.

      I don’t know how many seats Republicans will or won’t win in the Senate in 2022, but I feel confident in saying they’ll probably leave winnable seats on the table just as they did in 2010 and 2012. Weak candidates lose, even in wave years. Ask Angle, COD, and Buck.

      A 60 seat Republican majority is in grasp after the 2024 elections, but not if it squanders a whole slew of seats in 2022 because the party failed to recognize these bad candidates weren’t going to go away on their own. MAGA daddy has hurt the party with his endorsements, but McConnell, a fine parliamentarian, has mostly failed as Sun Zsu-like strategist.

      If that’s close to correct Walker and all Republicans in Georgia should win by a landslide.
      Reminds me of the Q poll of Florida in 2020 showing Biden with an 11 point lead over Trump.

      Ivana was married and divorced 4 times. Evidently she could not have been a decent person.

      Twitter to go wild wishing it was Donald instead or Donald using it as a distraction from PROOF of insurrection and treason the J6C has gathered on him.

      Personally, I admired her style, stamina and perseverance as a strong independent-minded woman through a number of challenges and career opportunities she created for herself. She always got back up and made a way forward.

      I always remember her “big hair” looks during the 80s in NYC too. That’s how I always envision her. Classic 80s look.

      R.I.P Ivana.

      You were a classy decent person no matter how many times you were married and divorced.

      No, he is a candidate with an exceptional and compelling life story.

      He may not be a polished guy, but he is running against a deeply flawed candidate that is a communist to boot.

      Walker represents GA a lot more than Warnock.

      What exactly can be gained by calling him a bad candidate?

    572. Wes says:

      Walker has made some missteps since winning the primary, thus accounting for the loss of his formerly consistent lead over Warnock. That said, Walker shook up his campaign staff and brought on new people to help him win.

      While he may not be the greatest candidate for Senate in US history, Walker has nonetheless realized the downward trajectory his campaign was on and worked to correct it.

      That is enough to tell me Walker is not a bad candidate. I can’t agree with Robbie’s analysis.

      For the record, I don’t believe there will be massive crossover from Kemp voters to Warnock, so I take the idea that Warnock will run substantially ahead of Abrams and defeat Walker with an oil tanker-sized helping of salt.

      Yet another glorious day here in upstate NY. Clear skies, a comfortable 77 degrees, and no humidity. Can’t imagine being in the oppressive heat of Fort Lauderdale. 90+, humidity off the charts, triple digit heat index. Yuck.

      Thursday is always breakfast for dinner day in the EML household. Of course I made breakfast tacos. And REAL breakfast tacos, not like what FAKE Latinx tgca makes. Eggs, sausage, queso, salsa. No vegetables in sight and CERTAINLY no fruit on a breakfast taco. Gross.

    576. Tgca says:

      NY gets one clear day and EML thinks it can compete with Florida weather.

      Humidity in south FL today was 65%.

      Ask most people where they’d rather live or visit, NY or FL.

      NY is dying with toxic filthy air and people.

      FL is a recreational outdoor state attracting people from all over.

      FL definitely wins on politics and income taxes. But the heat index in fort lauderdale is currently 102. No thanks. Maybe when my blood thins. Tgca thinks all of NY is NYC. Fort Lauderdale is far more congested, dirty, and disgusting than where I live.

      EML comparing FL weather at its hottest peak of the year to one nice day in NY is absurd.

      Well what about upstate or western NY in Dec thru Feb? Dreary, cold, wet, and desolate. Upstate NY probably gets one good month of weather a year compared to Florida’s 9+ months.

      The vast majority of NY population is centered around the NYC area. Upstate NY is a dying area with a number of poor areas.

      Fort Lauderdale, like every city has its bad neighborhoods but conpare Fort Lauderdale to Buffalo with its large poverty areas. Fort Lauderdale has transformed over the last decade and is now an expensive place to live with many amenities attracting folks, especially those fleeing all parts of NY.

    586. EML says:

      The only months you can go outside in FL are December, January, and February, also the 3 months to stay inside in NY. NY = 9 months of being outside. FL = 3 months.

    587. Tgca says:

      Fort Lauderdale is becoming the 2nd condo capital of FL after Miami. They have built new condo complexes all over the place. They’ve turned the city around.

      Just like NYC turned around d from its low point of the 70s to the 90s and 2000s, that’s what’s happening in Fort Lauderdale.

      In the meantime, Buffalo and most of NY outside NYC is wasting away.

    588. EML says:

      Florida is where people go to die. Most of them are merely getting acclimated to the heat before their eternity sets in.

    590. Bitterlaw says:

      I like cold weather. I also like cool weather, warm weather, and hot weather. They are called seasons where I live.

      I did like St. George and Lake Placid. It was funny when we went to Lake Placid a few years ago in August. It was 45 degrees at night. I heard a woman say, “What do you expect? It’s August.” I would love to spend a week somewhere like that in January.

    591. EML says:

      It’s going to be 53 overnight here. Getting ready to start up the fire pit. I do love a campfire. Can’t do that in 100 degree Fort Lauderdale or when you’re stacked up on top of other people living in a lame condo.

    592. Tgca says:

      Evidently EML knows little of south FL. People are out and about enjoying the outdoors in FL 9 months of the year comfortably in many sporting activities.

      Avg daily weather varies

      Jan. High 70s to Low 80s
      Feb. High 70s to Low 80s

      We also get 11 to over 13 hours of clear sunny skies daily throughout the year.

      Humidity varies on average 60s to 70s during various months but because we’re close to the ocean, we get the constant breezes.

      Most people can walk around 9+ months of the year in shorts and T-shirt here without breaking a sweat.

    593. Tgca says:

      Roughly 22% of Floridians are over 60.

    605. Robbie says:

      I still think the national mood is so much in favor of Republicans that it will carry most of the Senate candidates across the finish line first.

      However, this is the weakest group of Senate candidates I’ve seen since I started closely following races in 2002.

      Walker, Oz, and possibly Masters and Greitens are just bad candidates. Additionally, JD Vance (I think he wins) has gone dark on TV in Ohio. Axios reports Ryan has spent more than $6 million since the primary and Vance has spent $0.

      This could easily end up for Republicans the was 2018 ended up for Democrats. They win a big victory in the House and either break even or lose ground in the Senate.

    606. Phil says:

      On October 22, 2018 Cobb stated that he didn’t think the Mueller investigation was a ‘witch hunt’. He repeated that assertion in an ABC interview on March 5th, 2019 adding that he thought Mueller was an “American hero”

      So this guy didn’t like Trump. Shocking.
