I think some people have buyers remorse about that and will be looking for someone else closer to what they truly wanted.

I hope that this all means third party candidates get their time in the sun for once.

Of course. There are always people with buyer's remorse after an election. Right now though Trump's approval rating is above his term average, and his disapproval is at an all-time low.

The MSM will have Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez on TV and the internet all over the place.

The boards will too.

That alone will motivate the (R) vote.

The MSM has repeatedly omitted her name when discussing Crowley's loss.

He dared to oppose Pelosi so she sent in the Communists and Soros's MoveON to slay her enemy.

Dems have no chance, if they ever wake up they will get replaced by young socialist minority candidates in the Primaries who will be good little slaves and obey the plantation owners with a smile.


Essentially every Democrat and corporation supported Crowley.


And he was defeated by a young upstart funded by the Communists and Soros.

Wow, how did you get that so backwards? Socialists threaten the established DNC just as Trump scared his flock of lemmings.


Go check who backed the winner here. MoveONdotOrg and the organized commies.

You got that straight.

Here is what Joe Crowley said - "The Trump administration is a threat to everything we stand for her in Queens and the Bronx, and if we don't win back the House this November, we will lose the nation we love.β€œ
LOL
The nation they love? What nation is that?
The open border nation that’s what.
The total nutjob that wants Medicare for everyone and wants to abolish ICE beat the done nothing for 20 years on the job nutjob.
Landslide for the Republicans coming.

And yet my republican sister her republican husband and at least 2 of their republican friends have left the party in just the last few weeks.

Polls are one thing. What's happening on the ground with the people can be quite another.

Didn't the 2016 election teach you not to trust polls?

She raised like $300k, 70% of which was checks smaller than $200.

So I don't think she was particularly well funded by Soros, if at all.

No. But I don't really sit around and think about what race someone may or may not be.
That just seems kind of outdated and primitive, but maybe I'm the weird one, who knows.

In longer articles, some do mention Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez... but not in the title:

Hell, even the President didn't:

Could probably keep going but I'm bored now.

Yeah it's strange. Almost like they don't want you to know her name or google her and learn about her or her platform.
Strange.
I would look out for some Fake news coming up soon, or North Korea problem or something.
Actually, I would expect all kinds of crazy things to happen over this mid term election cycle.
The worse it looks for the right, the more distractions in the news cycle.

Yes. That is exactly what they need to do. The nuttier the better. I think you are on to something man.
As far as Bernie 2020 I think that is a great idea. He will not roll over again to the will of the DNC. I am sure of it.
I am sure the Republicans will support this.

No, but he'll roll over by a couple of BLM loud mouths.

Yeah run on that platform in federal elections, please. Seriously, please run on that.

It's like the Titanic sinking and the Dem politicians are the band that keeps playing.

Oddly enough, my brother and his wife just left the Democrat party. Sounds like we're just swapping additional poll data.

I've been saying this since Trump was elected. The Dems are in the same position the Reps were in 2008. And much like the conditions of 2008 led to a farther Right faction of Republicans, the Tea Party, the Dems are more seeing a farther Left faction emerge in their midst.

Many claim that it was the rise of the Tea Party that led the Reps to sweep the 2010 election. It will be interesting to see if this new breed of Dem does the same for the other side.

On problem I see, nearly half of registered voters are not a democrat or a republican, you need to appeal to them if you want the democrats to remain a viable national party.

There are even people in both parties that are unhappy with their direction, so it seems a little off to say its a 50/50 split in the country.

The more democrats appeal to the fringe the more regular Americans will turn away from them. (yes this argument can be made for the republicans as well) So an establishment Democrat losing to a "progressive" in an area that is as blue as blue can be is not a good barometer for a plan moving forward.

Trump got in because A: he wasn't Hillary, and B: there was a tiny chance he might improve things versus doing the same thing we have been doing for the last 40 years that has slowly strangled our nation.
