So much for the tax cuts saving the midterms for the GOP, its getting less popular as time goes on, Womp Womp.

American families are unsure whether they are benefiting from the tax cut, and small businesses say they are confused by the complex changes affecting them. A recent poll from Monmouth University found 34 percent of adults approve of the tax cut now, a slide from January when adults were about evenly split between approving and disapproving. And about a third of families say they are better off because of the cuts, according to polls by Politico and the New York Times.

Over/under on how many he will actually get?

It'll certainly be an interesting test to see how many people actually pay attention. Last time that district had a Republican on the ballot was 2014; that candidate got 64k votes. When the democrat was unopposed, there were 91 write-in votes.

 

I wouldn't be surprised if he gets tens of thousands of votes.

NC Republican state candidate: ”What is wrong with being a white supremacist? God is a racist and a white supremacist.”

 

Quote

The state GOP denounced Russell Walker after statements he made online were reported by a local newspaper, The Charlotte Observer. Mr Walker’s site, Christ Descended From Joseph, includes statements like “Jews are not Semitic they are Satanic as they all descend from Satan” and ”What is wrong with being a white supremacist? God is a racist and a white supremacist.”

 

Quote

The Republican nominee has previously filed a lawsuit against a local court demanding portraits of Confederate generals return to the courthouse, along with a Confederate flag.

 

Mr Walker is not likely to unseat Democratic incumbent Garland Pierce, who has represented the state’s 48th House district since 2004, according to analysts. But his candidacy and primary victory arrive at a time when the GOP is grappling over how to deal with the radical fringe that has become attached to the party. 

 

Another pro-Confederate who's racist.

To be fair, if God is real, he definitely has to be a racist.

So the GOP is running a self proclaimed Nazi for senate in Illinois, a neo confederate in VA, has a member of the senate quoting Nazi sympathizers, and now a state nominee says god is racist and white supremacist, but the latina from the Bronx who wants people to have healthcare and education is Satan reborn?

Also, sandwiched in between the story of Trump running child internment camps and appointing a justice to eliminate gay rights and the right to choose the biggest thing we had to worry about some random restaurant not being nice enough to a press secretary that personally insults reporters pretty much every day.

 

Sadly, most news outlets seemed to have their eye on the ball on Trump up until a month or two ago. We really do appear to be sinking back into the swamp of false equivalency, chase the shiny object journalism that for sure led to his nomination and probably helped him win, too.

She represents more of a threat to the establishment. Liberals are on board for fearing the democratic socialist because while they find being racist distasteful what those people generally want isn't much of a threat to wealth. Ocasio-Cortez confirmed that Bernie voters didn't just submit to apathy and this actually getting some left wing people into the Democratic party thing has some momentum. If it keeps going people might have to suffer being only being extremely wealthy rather than wealthy to the point of vulgarity so that the richest country in the world can provide a better standard of life for the general public.

Funny how Neo-Nazis and Neo-Confederates keep winning Republican primaries. Huh. Oh well. Time to write an article about how college kids protesting an Ann Coulter speech will be the end of the republic.

Dems don't seem to be in danger of losing either MN senate seat, conservative pollster shows both with safe leads.  Its pretty telling they didn't even give Healthcare as an option for most important issue as they likely know they'll get hammered on this issue, so Economy/Jobs is top issue in this poll, at 22%, immigration was second highest at 13% while 28% either said something else or not sure, lol.

I remember the same arguments in 2008 (Hillary has a better chance of winning PA and OH since she won in the primary).

 

That said, I think Duckworth doesn't want to upset the party apparatus. Wisconsin, for example, has a long progressive history despite electing conservatives as well (just recently, Tammy Baldwin is no conservative, and Russ Feingold was fantastic). Minnesota, though not the same easy Democratic victory from the 80s (it very nearly went to Trump and was a swing state both times Bush won), also has a progressive history.

 

Populism can work very well there, as seen by Trump.

In this case, the Bernie demographic is precisely who Hillary needed to do well with in the Midwest but didn't, though.

Hillary was not attracting the Bernie demographic when she won those states in the primary; Obama was.

This is something I've heard from many progressive activists, but it's nice to put it in perspective.

 

 

 

It's part of the reason more Republicans are more openly against all immigration (which many of us suspected a good chunk of them were, hiding behind "illegal" immigration as a cover). We had a couple regulars here who were anti-immigration in general years ago.
