The only denial i see hear is a couple of right wingers super whiney because they see the writing on the wall.

NOBODY was saying we would win KS, (of course outliers)

But GA, is doable. Our guy is at least making the runoff, and may even win.


We gained seats in both houses in 2016 and Hillary did get 3 million more votes than Chump. Chumpy got super lucky.

But lets face it, the dems did not get control of either house and frankly given we did not, perhaps you guys having all 3 is a win for us dems.

If hillary won it would have been 4 to 8 years of GOP lying about Obamacare, and blocking her from picking a SCOTUS...

at least this way the GOP have all the blame for what they are doing. As they wreck the country they will be held responsible.

Depends. Are they racist and vile without any factual basis?

The odds are high you use the software I work on as a SDET if you are in power systems.

So...you hold double standards. It's okay if your fellow anti-Trumps call Trump and his supporters insulting names but find it to be wrong when someone insults you and your ilk.

I don't know whom it is you are referring to when you yammer about being "racist and vile without any factual basis". You make no sense.

You will find that I am not a fan of making up petty names of presidents actually. I've called out others for it here. Its petty and childish. However stating things like "idiot" or "thin skinned" I find more acceptable as those tend to be accurate. Unpresidential is fine. But comparing him to a ape would not be ok with me.

I also dont support the "not my president" nonsense. You can search my posting history for that.

That help at all? I support factually based opinions, not vile and racist insults. Like calling someone Pocahontas for example.

First time I've ever thought of fringe being defined as perhaps being majority but with an electoral college it doesn't work that way. But I'm new to American politics.

That's the American fringe is it...majority who lost the electoral college votes. Got it.

I dropped 5 bucks on a bet showing that John Ossoff will win Georgia based upon data from a month ago. Currently that bet is up $.93

If I win, its $15 total. Currently the market of people putting money where their mouth is says he has a 44% chance. I bought at 34%. I think thats a appropriate betting level at the moment. Karen Handel is at 44% as well. Its neck and neck.

I guess they will do the same in GA.

The Democrat can't win elections anymore between NY and LA.
This is a republican stronghold. So for them to win by only 7 points is pretty significant.
