Still unfounded and unproven and contradicts everything we were seeing with polling. Not that it matters at all anymore.

Any Democrat would have had smooth sailing over Trump, that's for certain. Doubt there's more than a handful in this country that would be left-leaning and then say "Oh, but this guy has Socialist attached to his name so I'm going to go with the man who wants to build a wall."

The middle is non-existent in our polarized society and it will never return. Your world outlook is generally one way or the other with some government-haters (Libertarians) somewhere in the middle.

I don't know anything about J Stien why the loathing?

IY

oh, it is such an embarrassment at the low % of voting in our county!!!
Andd now w all the new impediments to voting enacted by Republican
State Legislatures...? I think one was recently thrown out by federal life vel court?

I was in the first year of 18 yr voters back in 1971! In was so happy. I've voted in almost every election since then. Even w the flaws, frustrations and sometimes horrify iing things thgthgat are part of, have happened, continue to happen- do my best I can to keep moving our country to a better place, better chances, outcomes for more & more people.

No there is still some middle ground.
And really depends who's doing the polling how he questions were asked etc

And you seemed to have ignored a pure numbers chart posted by ?Headache that definitely showed Hillary winning more in x contests than Bernie. Too tire too scroll through several thousand screen caps ofl many of interests to find it. With you saying such and such about those particular contests...and it just wasn't true.

Let's , hope we can get the Is Senate/House back to blue!

With the extreme gerrymandering by Republican Legislations ...?
Hopefully Trump will have a withering effect down ballot!y

I think we have a chance were were didn't before.
And while the usual pattern with mid-term elections is to revert to the opposite party...
say we keep the WH, get the Senate back but don't quite get The House, hopefully people who voted for Hillary, and ,a a blue senatee will be soooo frustrated...they'll make sure good house will go blue (Senate stays blue) with h a reelected Hillary.

I don't love, I like her, I like some, love some of what she's done/attempted to do. that's good enough for me right now

Wait...what!?!??! I hadn't heard this yet. I thought Phil fan was at least half joking.



Do you peeps think Gingrinch would give up what I assumed is a fairly lucrative gig at Fox News unless he was the actual Veep chose ce by Trump.

breath deep ....

This is a really fascinating and well written article about Hillary and the public's perception of her.
Will have to read this. I have read probably some similar pieces. Thanks.

Partly reminds me of how Gore could not tell how "off" he was presentation style wise in public appearances Then on the rare occasion he'd switch on!

Probably has something to do with your posts.

But hey, that's just a guess.

Oh this magic polling, that you've been asked to about and failed to produce everytime.

If you don't think "socialist" gives people pause and there's no middle you're extremely disconnected.

Economically you give several on the left pause, and on the right you strike up fear. So one side stays home or goes 3rd party and the other has record numbers; it's not that hard to see.

I don't think the socialist tag would be particularly damaging, honestly. The kind of people who would have drummed up controversy over that are now far more concerned with brown people as their perceived enemy rather than socialists.

The thing that would have really troubled Bernie is his tax proposals. For a middle class that has been struggling with wage stagnation for so long, the tax hike plans might have been a death knell for him.

This was a big concern for me as well. Under his plan, I was going to be paying a lot more taxes.

Oh believe me, if you read a Breitbart article or listen to am radio they're still trying to attach this label to Obama and Hillary as much as they can. There was a poster not too long ago who posted that they didn't believe Sanders would push the progressive agenda as much as Hillary, they spend 90% of their energy drumming up this kind of fear. Can you imagine if they didn't have to try? Sanders was never a target because there was never a threat that he would get the nomination, but if he had Sanders would be a slam dunk for them.

As would most of the country. The young and the very rich are the only ones that weren't thinking about this, hence why his support was very much lopsided that way.
