This is a rather stunning development and why i say it? because so many liberal news media outlets even local ones are treating this win by this liberal cyclist who flipped off Trump's motorcade in a Virginia senate election as a massive victory for the democrats.

Meanwhile in Kentucky governor's race a Democrat has won. These two small wins were considered an upset by the Mainstream News Outlets against Trump and Trump's Republican candidates.

According to the Media elitists the impeachment had no effect on the two losses of Republicans, Healthcare,jobs were the issues that led the success to victory for both of those states which is rather strange knowing that the economy is actually good.

Some in the news media are calling this a suburban Backlash Against the Republicans.




Democrats overthrew narrow Republican majorities in both chambers




In upset, Democrat Beshear is apparent winner in Kentucky governor's race, a blow to Trump, NBC projects


" Talk to the average person. Ask the next 100 people who come in here if they care about this impeachment process, and they will tell you almost to a person that they do because they find it to be a charade," Bevin said Tuesday at his polling place. "We don't appreciate when a handful of knuckleheads in Washington abdicate their responsibility as elected officials and try to gin up things that are not true because they can't handle the fact that Hillary Clinton didn't win."

In the other article it goes on to say how Democrats are winning these small through by demographics and these two victories today really shows how demographics really play a major role in America's election and future.

The American Democrats had already being using the strategy of demographics for quite some time already. Even once placed into public office many of these Democrat officials wont keep their promises either way in the article they mention one interesting aspect of all this.




Rather than looking to court urban areas, Trump has more frequently denounced places such as Chicago, San Francisco, and Los Angeles in an attempt to energize his mostly nonurban base. He continues to aim his message preponderantly at culturally conservative whites, and his campaign has signaled that it considers increasing turnout among such voters central to his reelection hopes.


The writer is suggesting that Trump and most of the conservatives base are trying to energize his mostly nonurban base which are culturally conservative whites. Hoping for a reelection hopes then the writer suggested that such a strategy could not generally work probably due to demographics.

Buts its clear that to know those who support the Democrats and their message, agenda even dispute the fact the Democrats will never achieve anything for the minorities.

The Kentucky race didn't end at the finish line.

There's still a fat lady waitin' to sing.

I honestly dont understand the arrogance of republicans that think they and trump will win in a landslide.

The democrats and establishment control all cultural institutions of power, the media, the entertainment industry, academia, and silicon valley.

Google, twitter, facebook, the media, and so forth, all pushing the same garbage narrative (while burying stories about pedophiles that connect to their elite friends) is sure to have a serious effect, and very well can win the election.

Indeed either way i still don't see any of those Democrat presidential candidates winning in 2020. Joe biden? do the Democrat really want an old man who is forgetting things? and want bring all of Obama's polices like the Paris accord which the Carbon tax and other taxes will be forced upon? open borders?

Liberals in here need to think really carefully about their candidates especially those moments in the Democrat debates where time and again they promised to the African Americans that if they vote for Democrats will impose reparations?

But your right when you said that liberal elitists control much of entertainment industry, academia etc. The way they are punishing the culturally conservatives you can easily tell for what the entertainment industry is doing to the movies and comics such like Star Wars.

I think its this what Hillary Clinton refereed to when she said when they go high we go low.

If you look at the Kentucky district voting map, the districts are 85% red.

He lost because of the cities... possibly.

We'll see how the recount goes.

I find it funny that the left is taking this win as a mandate... Kentucky will go blue for 2020!!!

History is a funny thing though...

Trump easily carried Kentucky with 62.52% of the vote, to 32.68% of the vote for Hillary Clinton, a margin of 29.84%. Trump won Kentucky by the largest margin of any Republican since Richard Nixon in 1972, and swept counties across the state.

That's not really going to change.

From a conversation I heard today it sounds like Bevin wasn't all that he thought he was and that this may even benefit Republicans, or at least not hurt them.

eh i dont think it will be a landslide just a slightly different electoral map/totals but only if we all get out and vote and do not get complacent

Virginia went quite bad for team R but it also was a factor that 10 democratic candidates for state senate ran unopposed (4 republicans won house races also un opposed) why are any races anywhere un opposed by any one at this point?

Kentucky which they seem to be treating as a "big win" just followed the historical trend of alternating republican then dem governors since 1999(before that it was dems from 1947-1999 in the state) meanwhile republicans won every race but gov in Kentucky ,but with super majorities in the Kentucky state house both held by republicans and a new republican AG(first African America to win AG in Kentucky ever and first republican ag in 71 years) the gov will be mostly a lame duck,but could be a factor after the census and redistricting

and with the dems in VA already announcing intentions for gun control that could irk some of the republicans in the state to vote trump in 2020 as they did not in 2016

part of some of the arrogance id assume from some republicans comes from internal beliefs that they couldn't imagine voting for any other candidate but it could also be coming from fundrasing numbers ballotpedia.org... but id also add caution to that as Hillary outspent trump and still lost

www.realclearpolitics.com... gdr59dV5taR38Oahc2oIaQ

Sure, they’re trying to reelect the most unpopular president in modern times and they have their work cut out for them, but it’s no wonder the Republican National Committee’s formidable operation has Democrats freaking out. For months Democrats have worried about a potentially lethal combination of Trump’s incumbency advantage coupled with the unparalleled strength of the GOP organization -- and that was before their newfound fear that they may not end up with a suitable nominee to take on even a deeply embattled Trump. While he rants on Twitter and holds campaign rallies, Democrats in a primary race get little notice or coverage. Meanwhile the Trump campaign is carpet-bombing Facebook with ads and the RNC is spreading a volunteer army across key swing states, all while breaking fundraising records allowing them to deploy critical resources nearly a year before a Democrat is nominated. Whoever thought this fight would start in the general election campaign had it all wrong. This terrifying realization is now causing allies of former Vice President Joe Biden to mull the creation of a super PAC since he is not only struggling to raise adequate sums but has been forced to fend off attacks by Trump months before the first votes in the primary contest will even be cast. In August, Democratic National Committee Chairman Tom Perez acknowledged the threat after the RNC tripled the amount the DNC raised in July. In an email he sent supporters sounding the alarm, he wrote that “our eventual nominee won't stand a chance against Trump and the GOP’s fundraising machine unless we start making strategic, early investments right now.” It was clear in September, when the RNC quadrupled the DNC total, that those investments have yet to materialize. September was the best non-election-year month for the RNC in history for either party, raising $27.3 million to the DNC’s $6.9 million. The RNC is carrying no debt; the DNC is carrying $7.2 million. The RNC has $59.2 million cash on hand while the DNC has $8.6 million. The RNC’s 2019 total is $168.7 million while the DNC has raised only $66.5 million this year.
so if money is the sole focus team R is doing quite well on that front but overconfidence is bad and could lead to lack luster turn out which we will need for 2020 but if were gonna trust polls and look for a good sign to perhaps be "happy and confident" this looked pretty good because independents siding with team R will be KEY in 2020

www.politico.com...

With less than a year to go before the 2020 election, a majority of registered voters say they think it’s at least somewhat likely that President Donald Trump will secure a second term in the White House, a new poll has found, with more than two-fifths of voters saying the president will be top of mind when casting their vote next November. According to a POLITICO/Morning Consult survey released on Wednesday, 56 percent of voters expect the president to be reelected next year, including 85 percent of Republicans and 51 percent of independents. By comparison, more than a third of Democrats (35 percent) say the same.
not the biggest fan of polls but ill take good news when i can get it i guess but IF and its still a huge IF 51% of independents transfer their belif that he will win into voting for him thats a pretty good sign for team R

with it being a little bit under a year tell election time who knows what will change but if the dems continue to go for impeachment which is not very likely to pass the senate it could farther help team R as people get "fatigued" with some of the issues (in my own personal observations of my 20 left leaning friends 10 have tuned out all political news for mental health reasons, 4 have said if sanders is not the nominee they will sit it out and 6 have said they dont care who wins dem nomination as long as some one stops trump) www.washingtonexaminer.com...

Senate Republicans, McConnell said, don’t view the president’s actions as impeachable and said the duration of a Senate trial hinges on Democrats and “how long … the presidential candidates want to be here on the floor of the Senate instead of Iowa and New Hampshire and all the related issues that may be going on at the same time." The Iowa Democratic caucuses and New Hampshire primary take place in February. Five Senate Democrats are running for the party’s presidential nomination. A Senate trial would require them to be present in the chamber every day except Sunday. “It’s very difficult to ascertain how long this will take,” McConnell said. “I’d be surprised if it didn’t end the way the two previous ones did, with the president not being removed from office.”
an with this IF the dems do keep pushing for impeachment as they seem to be doing it seems old mitch has the tactic of draw it out and out and see how many fundraisers,campaign stops,and id assume the possibility of them even missing a debate the democratic candidates may have to choose between showing up to an impeachment hearing or trying to campaign in states they need to win in 2020.

it is one of the factors that trump learned from Obama (money raising) and why its been non stop rallies since he won election in the ideal plan to keep the base motivated ,throw in most republicans (voters and politicians) think of the impeachment hearings as either a "coup attempt" or a "witch hunt" i predict the RNC will shift from general rallying to trying to motivate capture and keep the attentions of independent/undecided voters as no matter which side your on its not the base of team R or D that will decide it but who the independents side with. and which party will alienate them in 2020

Antiquated? Classist? That's just funny. We have the same issues today as we did when the founders put that in place - elitist people, today's liberal democrats, who would have permanent control over the Whitehouse if it weren't for the EC. Despite your obvious disdain for the Right and the EC, it's there to protect the rest of us from people like you who would eventually destroy our Republic. Thankfully our founders saw you coming and did the right thing.

halwesten: "We have the same issues today as we did when the founders put that in place" nope, slavery is gone "- elitist people, today's liberal democrats, who would have permanent control over the Whitehouse if it weren't for the EC." you mean the majority of the people, the smart ones (elitist)? "Despite your obvious disdain for the Right and the EC, it's there to protect the rest of us..." no, its not. it was yet another comprimise due to slavery *bold text added by me

first they wanted congress to elect the president, but that would have lead quickly to corruption and "king makers", then the popular vote, but due to lack of information, the people were considered too stupid, and the south had too many slaves.

the electoral college was a compromise against popular vote due to slavery.

as madison wrote: "There was one difficulty however of a serious nature attending an immediate choice by the people. The right of suffrage was much more diffusive in the Northern than the Southern States; and the latter could have no influence in the election on the score of Negroes. The substitution of electors obviated this difficulty and seemed on the whole to be liable to the fewest objections." memory.loc.gov.../llfr002.db&recNum=60&itemLink=r?ammem/hlaw:@field%28DOCID+@lit%28fr00218%29%29%230020061 &linkText=1

I'm going to try to help you with this.

There has been an uneasy agreement between the cities and the rural areas for about 100 years now in America.

We grow stuff and raise stuff, you need it so you pay us to do that.

However.

There is a time coming up where people like yourself are going to force the issue of who needs who.

We don't need your money to survive.

You need what we grow and raise to survive.

I spent a few years in Oklahoma and got to talk to older people who went through the Great Depression.

I'm hoping you have heard of the time and have read about it.

Ranchers and farmers there didn't notice a difference.

One year was the same as the other and it didn't matter if wall street collapsed.

The cities were devastated financially.

That was 80 years ago when people were at least a little self-reliant in the cities.

So keep pushing the idea that there are a few desolate dusty counties in America where nobody lives and the people that live there don't matter, as a lot of liberals do.

Push PUSH push until you get a pushback.

Please.

wouldnt "equal representation" be "one person, one vote"?
