Re: The Politics Thread

I think you guys are tangentially referring to it, but no one has said the exact word: Greed. Upper middle class/white, as people have mentioned, are typically the least impacted people by government decisions, so they base it on the one thing that 'affects' them: taxes. Except that a large majorit...

Re: The Politics Thread

Republicans who are professionally educated and aren’t fans at all of Trump’s lack of decorum and horrid rhetoric. yeah, i hear that a lot in my upper middle class white bubble, and i think it's BS. always goes something like "i don't like trump's demeanor, BUT we can't have a socialist commun...

Re: The Politics Thread

True/False?: If COVID never happened, Trump would have cruised to victory this election False. I think he got the "it's all a hoax to try to get me" message to sick and it ended up having a net neutral effect. yeah, i think trump cruises to victory w/o COVID. i'll have to say, though, his...

Re: The Politics Thread

Somebody talk me off the ledge on Arizona i'm right there with ya. this is all i got. The Associated Press has declared Democrat Joe Biden the winner in Arizona, flipping a longtime GOP state that President Donald Trump won in 2016.

Assuming all of Maine goes blue, it would be 271-269 Biden


270-268 if that NE district goes to Trump


biden has better chance at the NE district than the Maine one.

Re: The Politics Thread

though i can't bring myself to believe it, georgia and/or texas flipping shouldn't be that shocking given that kemp beat abrams by 1.4% and cruz beat beto by 2.6% in 2018. so two years of more young people moving to those states plus trump being awful...not that much of stretch to think those states...

yeah the idea that someone who didn’t vote in 2016 has been so wowed by trump’s spectacular performance the last four years that they are finally motivated to vote is just wild to me. I also cannot for the life of me figure out the 2016 Clinton voter turned 2020 trump voter. who is that person? 2016...
