2020 Elections

Generally an unmoderated forum for discussion of pretty much any topic. The focus however, is usually politics.

Hardy American citizens braved the constant barrage of German and Japanese bombers laying seige to our great American cities to cast their ballots and exercise their freedom in the midst of a hail of bullets raining down upon polling stations from above.

Never forget.
:lol:

Plus, those millions of soldiers and sailors were shipped home to vote. Not one of them voted by mail.
Thanks for clearing that up for me. And here I thought pino was mistaken.
but if you remember, those military mail-in votes included a lot of fraud. Many that were counted for Bush were postmarked more than 10 days after the election and there were a lot, especially in Florida, that were filled out improperly and were illegally corrected by county election officials.
Gore tried to object and there was an overwhelming, "but but the military, Gore hates the military".

It's a well known fact that hostilities were paused for several months prior to an election so soldiers could pack up and head home to vote. Opposing sides pinky promised to stop the war until voting could be completed and American soldiers could return to the front. Traffic cones were used to mark the location of machine gunner nests and troop locations, and small bright orange flags, stuck into the ground at 5 foot intervals, were used to mark the front lines. Upon their return, soldiers would take up positions, remove the traffic cones and flags, and a referee from a neutral country would blow his whistle to resume hostilities.

MY NC11:
I know, y'all don't really care. I just wanted to show you this crappy ad.

Trump Conservative: Madison Cawthorn

:roll: Ooooh, socialists :o .

He's running against Lynda Bennett in the 6/23 primary runoff. I can't vote in it since I voted in the Dem primary.

12-way primary:
Lynda Bennett, businesswoman - 22.7%
Madison Cawthorn, motivational speaker (disabled in MVC, maybe brain injury? ;) ) - 20.4
Tight.

Bennett endorsers:
Donald Trump, 45th President of the United States
Mark Meadows, White House Chief of Staff and former U.S. Representative for North Carolina's 11th congressional district (2013-2020)
Jim Jordan, U.S. Representative for Ohio's 4th congressional district and ranking member of the House Oversight Committee
Andy Biggs, U.S. Representative for Arizona's 5th congressional district (2017-present)[158]
Ted Cruz, United States Senator from Texas (2013-present)[159]
American Conservative Union
Citizens United
Susan B. Anthony List


Guess I'll root for Cawthorn. The winner will face Moe Davis in Nov. Most polls consider it "Safe R" despite being un-gerrymandered.

Primary runoff today. I'm getting robo-calls from 45SHOLE for Bennett. If I was a Repug and not a diehard Trumpette, this alone would make me vote for Cawthorn. If Bennett wins the runoff, I wonder if her PINO support might give Dem Davis a chance in Nov. That would be amazing.

:lol: Thanks! FU PINO, Meadows and the Repug establishment. Although, it might have been better if it wasn't such a rout. Close races generate more hard feelings, and Cawthorn absolutely is an asshole.

He should fit well into Meadow's seat, then.
But it would seem that a 24-year old asshole might provide a better path for the good guy. What's he like?

I did not vote for Moe Davis in the primary. However, he's got a pretty good resume, better than I knew when I voted. He might have a shot against the kid, but it's still a tough district.

If a Dem wins here it probably also means that:
Sen. Tillis (R) gets ousted by Cunningham (D);
Biden wins NC, and if so Biden wins the US.

Whatever happens, Meadows getting humiliated at home tonight is excellent.

Black challenger Bowman leads in bid to oust veteran congressman Engel in U.S. primaries

Jamaal Bowman, a liberal Black middle-school principal, was ahead in early Democratic primary election results Tuesday in his bid to oust long-time U.S. Representative Eliot Engel from a congressional seat representing part of New York.

The New York Times declared progressive Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez the winner in her contest against a challenger in a neighboring New York district, in races that tested the strength of the Democratic Party’s left wing after moderate Joe Biden became the presumptive presidential nominee....

New York officials said results on Tuesday night did not include returns from absentee ballots, which were requested in record numbers during the coronavirus pandemic. Those ballots will not be completely counted until a week after the election. Hundreds of thousands of absentee ballots were also outstanding in Kentucky.

Bowman, 44, was leading Engel, the chairman of the House Foreign Affairs Committee, by 59.48% to 35.31%, the New York state elections board said, with 627 of 732 election precincts reporting. Whoever wins the Democratic nomination is likely to win the seat in November.

“Eliot Engel used to say he was a thorn in the side of (Republican President) Donald Trump,” Bowman told supporters. “But you know what Donald Trump is more afraid of than anything else? A Black man with power. That is what Donald Trump is afraid of,” Bowman said.

Progressive Senators Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren as well as Ocasio-Cortez endorsed Bowman, while Democratic Party stalwarts, such as former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, the party’s 2016 presidential nominee, rallied around Engel....

Ocasio-Cortez, the 30-year-old progressive firebrand better known as AOC, ran far ahead of former CNBC television anchor Michelle Caruso-Cabrera, 53, who was backed by the conservative-leaning U.S. Chamber of Commerce in a New York City district. [L1N2DW2HQ]

Ocasio-Cortez said her reported results of about 70 percent of the vote would be a “transformative” mandate. Caruso-Cabrera had 18.96% of the vote....
Does "The Squad" accept men? Cons were SOOO sure that AOC could and would be defeated. I wonder how much money they threw into the "race"? :lol:

There was no basis whatsoever for that fairy tale belief. Among the people in her district, who are the ones actually getting to vote, she has consistently been highly popular with high approval ratings.

Biden Takes Dominant Lead as Voters Reject Trump on Virus and Race

Joe Biden has taken a commanding lead over President Donald Trump in the 2020 race, building a wide advantage among women and nonwhite voters and making deep inroads with some traditionally Republican-leaning groups that have shifted away from Trump following his ineffective response to the coronavirus pandemic, according to a new national poll of registered voters by The New York Times and Siena College.

Biden is currently ahead of Trump by 14 percentage points, garnering 50% of the vote compared with 36% for Trump. That is among the most dismal showings of Trump’s presidency, and a sign that he is the clear underdog right now in his fight for a second term....

Biden leads Trump by enormous margins with black and Hispanic voters, and women and young people appear on track to choose Biden by an even wider margin than they favored Hillary Clinton over Trump in 2016. But the former vice president has also drawn even with Trump among male voters, whites and people in middle age and older — groups that have typically been the backbones of Republican electoral success, including Trump’s in 2016....

The exodus of white voters from the GOP has been especially pronounced among younger voters, an ominous trend for a party that was already heavily reliant on older Americans.

Fifty-two percent of whites under 45 said they supported Biden while only 30% said they supported Trump. And their opposition is intense: More than twice as many younger whites viewed the president very unfavorably than very favorably....

Some unease toward Trump stems from voters’ racial attitudes. According to the poll, white voters under 45 are overwhelmingly supportive of the Black Lives Matter movement, while older whites are more tepid in their views toward racial justice activism. And nearly 70% of whites under 45 said they believed the killing of George Floyd was part of a broader pattern of excessive police violence toward African Americans rather than an isolated incident.

What’s striking, though, is that even among white seniors, one of Trump’s strongest constituencies, he has damaged himself with his conduct. About two-fifths of whites over 65 said they disapproved of Trump’s handling of both the coronavirus and race relations....
Some predicted that PINO would kill the GOP for a generation, but it seemed as much wishful thinking as anything. Now . . .

Because of CV-19 Biden has been very limited in appearances and the news. This would normally give a massive advantage to an incumbent. However, it looks like the winning strategy this year is for 45SHOLE to keep talking and Joe Gaffe not to. :lol:

And I'm just fine with that. Additionally, as his numbers continue to climb I'd hope he skips the debates or insists on a kill switch for the microphones so that Cheetohead cannot bloviate over his time limit, walk all over Biden's answers during his time and be his normal asshole self.

That would be fun.

Cancelling the debates I do not consider a good idea at all. Biden will slaughter trump in any debate on any subject and reveal trump's abject ignorance n the process. If anything, I think there should be as many debates as possible; trump won't learn from his mistakes, only intensify them.
