Super Tuesday is tomorrow. Don't forget to vote. There is no excuse. Georgia law requires employers to give employees two hours paid penalty free (ie, no make up, no doing it on your lunch) time to go vote. No excuse to not vote.

It's really almost a hopeless situation there given that rumor & innuendo is repeatedly posted as the basis of thread topics or for member comments.
Often I just don't bother going there anymore or I merely quickly skim through the material. I mean, what's the point really with so many people largely relying on only 1 or 2 media sources for their info & then trusting those sources to be telling the truth and to be agenda-free.
From my travels, I've observed that voters in Georgia overall average out to be among the most highly gullible to rumor & innuendo that I have found anywhere in the 50 states. Seeing that it is not that way elsewhere in the U.S. does not make me proud to live in this state.
Lol. You really need to travel more

This is my point ^^^

Trump is going to try to beat a dead horse.


Hilary has already went face to face against a committee of republicans in a herring and everything, and won. Polls have even showed people are even tired of republicans even trying make a controversy. Hilary would not even be running if there was something republicans could pin her with. And her team likely already prepare for the worst Republicans could throw cause it's the same for a few years.

Trump on the other had, most Americans are not super political conscious until the national election. So they don't know much about trump political views and commenting. Trump wackiness it's like a myth to most Americans.


He basically popular to the right for his right wing views, The GOP is actually going to nominate an extremely right wing unsuitable candidate. He's popular to the mainstream is only because he's a celebrity and most Americans haven't gotten into politics yet. During the national Election Dems are going to make sure America knows about his views and comments. It's going to ship moderates far away from him. There going to be attack adds with trump rants and etc. Seriously this guy had bad mouth the pope.

Unless you start work after 9AM or end before 5PM. The polls are open 7 to 7. If you have 2 hours before or after your work hours, employers are exempt.

So in reality, it doesn't apply to many. You would have to work from 8AM to 6PM (10 hour day) to get the 2 hours to vote during work.

I'm not sure who I'm voting for, but all this talk about the general election and who wins really only comes down to Ohio and Florida

Exactly. This is what I've been saying also. If Republican voters were smart, they'd nominate John Kasich. He's the current, two-term governor of Ohio. That state has elected him twice already. He's a lock to win it in a general election. And, if he were to choose Rubio as his running mate, they'd likely get Florida too.

Instead, Republican voters seem bent on nominating Trump or Cruz. Neither of those guys will carry Ohio. That state chose Obama over McCain in 2008 and over Romney in 2012. And McCain and Romney were far more inclusive and moderate compared with Cruz or Trump. But still, they couldn't win Ohio. There is no way that Trump or Cruz win Ohio. And I doubt, very much, that either of them could win Florida in a general election either.

Voters this election cycle, especially GOP voters, are incredibly myopic. They need to look at November. Instead they're whipping themselves into a froth over the 'bread and circuses' rhetoric of Donald Trump.
