I'm in Brunswick county NC and I can tell you from speaking with voters both old and young that the democrats policies are too extreme even for tradionally liberal younger folks. I think the DNC has it's work cut out for them here in NC.

Brunswick County is solid GOP and has been for a long time. I don't think the DNC has any plans to flip Brunswick County.

North Carolina's electoral votes are definitely at play in 2020 though.

I have the same fear. Hear about to much China. New York Times dose an article on how wonderful a revolutionary Mao was in China. I fear the globalist Socialist force is still skulking around and will cause bigger trouble this next time. It is sad that our left leaning friends cannot see this.

Yeah the Charlotte area is solidly blue, UNCC is spitting out people who literally espouse communism as an acceptable choice. Now I don't know how prevalent it is among the entire city, however every politically minded student I've come across has been in that spectrum. With the tech sector in the triangle area I would imagine it's more of the same. It's pretty much like that everywhere I've been in the country, large cities and population centers are very blue. Everything else is pretty dang red.

I think a good number can not see because they will not see.
For what ever reason.

It was in play in 2016 too.
Even at the height of the Russian Collusion hoax at the 2018 elections, Democrats could not win the vote statewide.
I'd say, whilst it's in play, it is most likely a Republican hold.

The entire Solid Democrat South started its turn to the Solid Republican South around 1980, primarily due to Reagan's policies and Carter's failure in Iran. North Carolina was no exception. All of the large urban centers in the South retained a respectable Democratic influence, and that influence has steadily grown as the urban centers have grown.

North Carolina has several of these urban centers: Winston-Salem, Greensboro, Raleigh, Durham, Charlotte... and they are spread throughout the state instead of being concentrated like, say Atlanta. In addition, North Carolina has a significant coastline, which attracts more liberal people from other states (usually Yankees) who add to the growing liberalism. That makes it one of the easiest states to swing back Democratic. The western part is extremely conservative, as are the rural areas, but the population is heavily concentrated in the more urban and liberal areas.

That's why I find this election telling for 2020. If the Democrats cannot take the easiest state there is in the South to take, with every advantage in the book, well, there's just not a lot of hope nationally for them.

Western part of the state has two tribe of Native Americans. They are conservatives.

"In wake of fraud scandal, voting by mail dropped by two-thirds in 9th District"


Something that's popping up in 'local' news here in NC as well... I wonder if the MSM will carry the story since it's a pretty solid dig at vote by mail. Imagine that - real people showing up at the poles and voting!

Except it's not traditionally close, and it was close to a tie. The voter turnout was way higher for democrats this election.

Guess we'll see if it's a sign to come in 2020.

What polls?

Of the 4 polls taken one had the Democrat winning, one had the Republican winning and the other two were tied.

The results of the election were 50.7 to 48.7. That's a pretty close race for a district that's got a +8 point partisan lean.

This kind of elections though do not show presidential inclination. You usually get 10-25% turnout if not less for special elections and such. Presidential Elections always bring out more so midterm exit polling is worthless.

Right now there is no one who can challenge Donald Trump in 2020. There just isn't. Even if it was a Biden/Warren ticket it will not be able to do what is needed to stop the current president. The only way a Democrat could be elected is if Trump is removed from the equation and there is only one way that could happen and it would fracture the country. I just hope it does not come to that.

The GOP taking both of those seats when there is a 24/7 Media/Social Media blitz to the likes we have never seen before is a miracle.

It seems you may be correct:

Both parties poured millions of dollars into the race, with Democrats spending about $6.8 million on TV and radio ads while Republicans spent about $6.5 million, according to data from Advertising Analytics.


I had been hearing the opposite, that the DNC was outspending the GOP three to one. Of course, that was just TV ads, so there may have been other expenditures as well where the spending was unbalanced.

That does not change the fact that the previous GOP candidate had been embroiled in an election fraud controversy that caused the election results to be negated and caused this new election. Nor does it change the fact that McCready had many times more time to campaign than Bishop, who got into the race only a few months prior to the election. Nor does it change the fact that Bishop was down 17 points 3 weeks earlier, was tied with McCreary the day before the election, and won with a 2% margin. All after asking President Trump for assistance. That's a 19 point surge due to Donald Trump.

Nor does it change the fact that instead of correcting me in a civilized manner, you chose to correct me in a very hateful and crude manner. Triggered perhaps? Did your day get ruined because you saw someone wearing a MAGA hat? Did you lose your crayons?


Because it is.
A seat that has been solidly republican for over half a century, where the GOP predecessor won by 18 points, and where Trump won by a respectable 12% in razor thin national election ..just eked out a victory by 2%

I'm curious: is there a difference between winning by 2 % and winning by 47%? I never realized there was. How does that work? Does the DNC candidate who lost get to tell the GOP candidate who won how to vote on legislation for a week?

Interesting concept... sounds like "almost pregnant" to me.

I also point out (again!) that an endorsement by President Trump caused a 19% jump in three weeks. Not exactly something to crow about if the objective is to win the White House...

Oh! That's right! I knew Cherokee was there (visited it once) but it had slipped my mind.

Thanks for reminding me.

Who cares


When did you guys start believing that either party was less corrupt than the other?

Yup. Successfully brainwashed. Trump stole your critical thinking skills.

Of course there is.

Apart from what a bookie might tell you?

Let's try this..

If the final score of a basketball game is 125 to 9, it says something about the two teams that are playing. If those two teams play again a year later and the score is 98 to 96? One of those teams got much better or one of those teams got much worse or both.

With 90,000 fewer voters, but let's be clear: they didn't win because they cheated and no one was certified from that election.

I've been saying this for a long while now.
I believe Trump will win in a landslide victory very similar to Reagan's second term election.
I am definitely a swing voter. I really wanted Obama to win to erase any memory of the Republicans after the second Bush term. What a complete disaster. Honestly, don't think there has ever been a worse president than the second Bush term.

Obama was a pure politician, and seemed to me to be trying to destroy America in his second term.
The Dems have nothing but false claims and arguments for Trump.
As a swing voter, leaning Conservative in many issues, I feel like the Dems platform is literally and only to vote Trump out.

He will win in a landslide. The pollsters will get it wrong again. Again, nobody in media will be fired.
