    Midterm Madness

    A year ago the Democrats looked down and out. With historical trends, and current polling weighted heavily in their favor, it looked like a red wave.

    However in the last few months theres been a change in momentum. Roe V Wade combined with out foxing Mcconnel for another legislative win.

    There has been a very big change in important districts. As states look to ban abortion, the real life consequences this has already caused have not been very flattering. For the time being the Democrats seem to actually have a chance to hold on to their slim margins in both houses.

    Its still way too early to know whatll happen. But Republicans have another problem. They need to start pushing their strategy to turn the tide back in their favor. But Trump has other plans and is obssessed with his recent legal troubles.

    Thoughts? Predictions?

    You meant red, no?

    Other than that, I have no thoughts. Too much can happen between now and then.
    Nobody thinks…about anything…ever.

    The House will flip big time as the recession gets bad in November. Reps will have a 40+ vote majority. Senate will also flip and Reps will have a 4-5 vote majority. The polls that have shown the Dems catching up are bogus polls that only question "registered voters" and not "likely voters". This always happens when Dems are going to get smoked so that donors don't stop feeding money into the Dem coffers.

    A BLUE WAVE? Hilarious, Spockey. Better edit your post. The House will flip be time as the recession gets bad in November. Reps will have a 40+ vote majority. Senate will also flip and Reps will have a 4-5 vote majority. The polls that have shown the Dems catching up are bogus polls that only question "registered voters" and not "likely voters".

    The polls are pretty accurate today, but hold onto that thought when you and the rest of the traitors wat to claim a stolen election.

    Damn right.
    There are three kinds of men. The one that learns by reading. The few who learn by observation. The rest of them have to pee on the electric fence for themselves.

    Palin lost the special election tonight in Alaska, and the Democrats flipped a seat the Republicans had held for 49 years.

    Yeah, and it'll be Peltola, who won tonight, and Palin again, as well as two more Republicans.

    ban this pos. Whoever owns or runs this board, this guy is an insulting inflammatory jerk who someone put in charge of moderation on this board. Who made this decision and based on what?

    It would be professional of the person who makes the law around these parts to explain how **** like this gets decided.

    Could be interesting. I don't know much about Peltola, but beating Palin is a good thing. She'd not be as dumb as Greene or Boebert, but it would be close.

    Alaska has a F ed up election system. In the Rep primary Palin had the most votes of the three or four Rep Candidates. The "loss" is for the vacated seat of a guy who was the longest Congressman who ever held office in Congress. THE SPECIAL ELECTIONWILL RESULT IN A DEM HOLDING OFFICE FOR WHAT THREE MONTHS? BIG WOP.

    And then a rematch of the same people, using the same system. Want to explain why we should expect it to turn out differently in three months?
