  1. Who opposes, has issues, supports and is unknown as they haven't commented yet. https://www.washingtonpost.com/graphics/2017/politics/ahca-senate-whip-count/?hpid=hp_hp-top-table-main_whipcount%3Ahomepage%2Fstory&utm_term=.82f5897d00da
  2. So a a human rights commission investigated a tip that police were grabbing people from slums and ransoming them back to families, while on film they find a secret compartment behind a bookshelf at the station with a dozen people in cramped conditions that had been beaten and electricuted, the video played on TV, Duterte said an investigation would happen, the people were handed back to the police and a month later nothing has happened. https://www.washingtonpost.com/world/asia_pacific/philippine-police-use-chaos-of-dutertes-drug-war-to-extort-families-in-distress/2017/06/21/5bc36b82-4bff-11e7-b69d-c158df3149e9_story.html?utm_term=.7645ff1229fd After the bookshelf was opened, the video shows, Gilbert D. Boiser, an investigator for the Commission on Human Rights, asked Domingo to explain the presence of people in the hidden cell. Domingo said it was to spare them from the overcrowded, on-the-books cell. “We don’t have the budget to build up to international standards,” he said. “We are just maximizing our budget.” Emerging from the narrow, concrete enclosure, detainees said they had been picked off the street and held for up to a week without charge. They said that they had been beaten and given electric shocks. That their families were told to raise between 20,000 and 200,000 pesos, or $400 to $4,000, or else they could face drug charges — or worse. “They were forcing us to admit to things we know nothing about,” said a prisoner who gave his name as Robert Muro. “They beat my foot with a piece of wood.” “That’s why you cannot walk? an investigator asked. “Yes. And on the chest too. They hit me here five times. Five times. And twice on the knees. And at the back. And they hit me with a .38 caliber gun,” he continued. “They threatened to kill us. That no one would ever know.” Domingo, the station commander, was relieved from duty and sent to Manila police headquarters, as were other officers. They have yet to be charged. Two weeks after the raid, Police Station No. 1 had a new commander, Ruben dela Rama Ramos, a 15-year veteran of the police force in Davao, the city Duterte ran for more than 20 years. In an interview in his new office, Ramos said the secret cell incident was a story manufactured by journalists to destroy the reputation of Philippine police. “We don’t call it a secret jail, but holding center,” he said. “It’s just the media that sells this.”
  3. “You're brown,” she shouted. “You're brown. You're all attacking me because I'm white.” lol, yup thats it lady.
  4. I see it as evidence that the country hasn't changed as much as people want to believe, the pendulum is swinging back the other direction, just as it almost always does.
  5. What about it, there was definitely evidence that he could have won it but it was going to be close and it was, and it being close was bad for the GOP because its a district that went ~20 points to Price in November. A similar special election happened in 2010 in a safe PA district for dems that ended up being close and we all know what happened later that year in november.
  6. Yes the backfire effect is hitting the GOP hard right now.
  7. I think a lot of this is that its still early in his presidency and they're hoping he can turn it around, but he won't, but recent polls have shown declines in republican support.
  8. The GOP survived these elections they didn't thrive, and these are they're "safe" districts, Trump is going to be out there everyday reminding people of why hes horrible, in 2006 when Bush was in the shitter Dems gained 31 house seats and 6 Senate seats, that don't even need to do as well as that to regain control of both houses. Theres a pattern to how all this works, the presidents party almost always loses theres been 3 times since the Civil war where the presidents party gained in midterm elections, 1934, 1998, and 2002, and Clinton's and Bush's approval ratings during those years weren't in the 30s, but rather double what Trump's are.
  9. 27k mail in ballots accepted as of yesterday, Ossoff needs 80% of them, lol. Probably over so i'm off.
  10. Mail in vote numbers are expected shortly, but its getting close i guess to the point where he can't expect to win with mail in votes, needs the rest of Fulton and Dekalb to go his way i guess.
  11. So basically he needs the mail in vote to be big at this point.
  12. SC race is projected for Norman, a lot closer than polls indicated it would be though.
  13. Theres also no word on the mail-in votes yet either.
  14. I'm reading that Handel slightly outdid projections in the in person early vote, by about a percent. Also the Dem looks like hes hitting the numbers he needs in SC so far anyways.
