I don't know where that article got its stats from, but going 22-12 in the win/loss column, at least where I come from, doesn't equal 71% losses. Also where I'm from, that would mean that 66.7% of the candidates Trump endorsed won their elections.

This has been the case for a while now. Trump has a very poor track record on endorsing winning candidates.


No he doesn't. It's much better than Obama's, who won his reelection.

Yep.

That'll be ignored however, in favor of this being a humiliation. Can't dash a fantasy that easily.

I especially liked the links description of how "painstakingly" the numbers were researched...makes it sound like she spent days doing it, or maybe her thumbs are just that damned tired.

Nope, it's definitely a humiliation, 'cause, well, it just has to be.



Calling it a humiliation is just their way of trying to get under our skin because they know it was anything but that. It's probably them who are humiliated for bragging about a big blue wave, which failed, so they thought they'd beat us to the punch. Just another liberal failure. Those have become more common than shootings in Chicago.

Can't we just take a moment and be humiliated for soundguy's sake, you selfish bastards?

We've had two long years of essentially nonstop winning. This is the first remotely good news to come out of DNC headquarters (even if it wasn't the 50-60 seats they were hoping for a few months ago). Let soundguy have his moment. Just sixty seconds of humiliation. We've had over 63,072,000 seconds of ecstatic winning since November 2016. Give him sixty seconds!

I, for one, am deeply humiliated and ashamed.

And now, I'm fine.

The election is fixed. Next time Republicans will win. After that Democrats will win.

Whoever counts the votes decides the election.


If this was the case the government would never change hands. We just had a bunch of governorships flip. How did they lose while they were counting the votes?

While rightwingers try to come up with creative ways to deal with the humiliation they suffered last Tuesday. We find that 71% of the candidates he (tRump) endorsed lost their elections. I guess it’s no wonder he is acting even more crazy than usual. Buckle up right wingers, your future looks rather bumpy.

what about that pesky one in 2016.?


Broken record much..lol. First he did not win the popular vote which means that he was not America's choice. Second he won due to Comey coming out with fake news about Clinton investigation which swayed voters.

May I suggest that you read up on your basic civics lessons? A national popular vote matters for exactly nothing. Kinda like being voted "cutest couple" in High School.

It worked exactly as the Founders intended. Don't like it? Too bad. Run a better candidate next time, one that appeals to voter outside urban areas.

Actually next election Dems win everything. In 2 they lose one of the houses, in 4 they lose both. Then it all repeats again. It is because neither party is really fighting for the average American despite the rhetoric that says they are.

What I find curious is that the libs here love to crow about Hillary winning the popular vote, yet at the same time it's almost impossible to find one who will admit they voted for her.
