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.
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.
People live in the those cites. Cities vote for people. Saying look at all this land that is red and this small area of land that is blue really discounts where people actually live and vote.
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.
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.
When I did, I had the same nauseated reaction as when I went to court for a divorce. My hope was that a clear rejection of Republicans would deliver the message that President Donald Trump was poison to GOP electoral prospects in 2020.
My hope was that Republican House members and senators tempted to vote in lockstep with Trump on impeachment would think twice, if not for principled reasons, then for crass personal political reasons.
Two things we know for sure as a result of these off-year elections: Support for impeachment is not hurting the Democratic brand. And neither is support for gun laws backed by supermajorities of Americans.
But every time I hear about "Medicare for All," the "Green New Deal" and all the massive tax hikes that Democratic presidential candidates are plotting, I worry that Trump will be safe. When Democrats take positions that can be reasonably called for open borders, for unrestricted third trimester abortions or on the extreme side of other culture war issues
The most liberal Democratic candidates and primary voters need to face reality and do some triage here. Job 1 is to defeat Trump at the ballot box if impeachment doesn’t get it done first. Because Issue 1 is whether American voters and democracy, and indeed the world, can withstand this presidency for another four years.

Well that would make a lot more sense but your voters in your state in America just voted for the state to be in a lot more of a financial mess with the democrats.
I think more people should look at it that way instead of looking at it like a sports game between opposing teams - it's like watching the same two teams in the Superbowl every year but both teams suck! We need new teams in the league!

Joe Morrissey, the convicted sex offender and idiot who pulled out a rifle in congress, got a nice cushy seat in Virginia... (16th district I think)
People will really vote for anybody these days.
