Haha....true.
Hey, I'm not an advocate of her stance or a supporter. But it is good to see the "old guard" move on and new blood move in....plus the old guy in that spot was a Trump basher. I'm not a Trump fan, but I do like what he's doing with the economy, he's been productive and re-establishing the US as an economic and military powerhouse again.
The narrative that "Trump is ruining the country and needs to be impeached" is growing very tired and highly inaccurate--and voters will continue to not listen to Democrats who continue this false story. Crowley kept on with that.

I saw where the polls had her 36 down three weeks before the election. She won by 15. Opinions do NOT swing like this in three weeks.

Those swings are from low voter turnout.... Those that would vote against her in the primary do not necessarily mean they would vote for her in the election... And there is a significant portion that would vote against her without the GOP.... How many more would vote against her if the GOP put some money into that race... She is a vulnerable candidate whose only success is working as a bartender in a taco shack who runs her mouth a lot...

Another indicator of why polls are useless.

Dems should agree with this too .

I donít think we should be paying so much to education kids here illegally . Their home countries should be doing it.
Also is it fair that DACA kids get in state tuition but American born kids have to pay more if they go to college of state ?

I think free college for everyone isnít a good idea , give grants and loans like we have and find ways to make it more affordable but when something is totally free then people donít appreciate it . The drop out rate would be even higher than it already is.
In - State = State you reside in

If an illegal goes to college in a different state, then they do not pay in-state tuition.

Also, yes, we have waste problem when it comes to all those things, but that is mostly human error, not some built in problem.

Even Washington Post realizes that calling for the abolishment of ICE is dumb

Why Kirsten Gillibrand and other Democrats’ calls to abolish ICE are politically risky
