It's impossible to think that the least loyal voter group in the republican party might have drifted a bit in the face of a voter fraud scandal, so it must be because Orange. Man. Bad.

If the left wants to play the spin game, the right will play the spin game.

And people can discuss and debate that spin, if they don't simply want to be robotic mouthpieces for others. Here's an example!

Robeson County provided 11% of the total votes in this election. Mecklenburg County (the Charlotte suburbs) provided 35% of the votes.

In 2016, in this same district, Mecklenburg County's votes were 42% Democratic, in an election that the R won easily (by 16 points). Robeson County was slightly D, with 52% of votes.

In 2019, the largest county in this election had a massive 14-point shift to the left (Mecklenburg became 56% D) from 2016. Robeson shifted right by 1 point, from 52% to 51%.

Since you are, of course, a savvy political expert: which of these do you think is a larger story? The small county with few people moving slightly right, or the huge county with lots of people moving far left?

I think the answer's pretty obvious, but it seems from your posts here that you don't particularly agree :-):-):-):-):-):-):-):-):-):-):-)

I just got in from Canada tonight, and all I heard about in their own political reporting was how they are ideologically divided too.

LOL But Trump!

'Cept keeping the Senate isn't exactly being "wiped." You won one branch—not two. This with your party changing laws to make ballot stuffing legal in California whereby you reversed a bunch of seats by only collecting D votes— and other attempts elsewhere to try to pad votes like in Florida. You didn't get away with it here or in Georgia despite you fake voter suppression claims. You're gonna do the same shenanigans again in 2020 too.

It is when you dumb motherfuckers went into 2018 thinking you'd keep both branches of Congress. And if you want to know why you were so clueless, just read JPB's posts in this thread. :-):-):-):-):-):-):-):-)

All this shows is a divided country. It's good for politicians who don't want to pass anything and want to point fingers at the other side, not for anyone else.

Republicans’ special election victory Tuesday in North Carolina’s 9th District is the latest evidence that 2020 will be a very different election from 2018.

Rep.-elect Dan Bishop didn’t just overcome his Democrat opponent’s two-year head start and millions of dollars in out-of-state money. He also outperformed the GOP candidate’s 2018 efforts by 2 points — quite a different narrative from what the cable news pundits want voters to believe and great news for Republican prospects next year.

House Republicans are now 3-0 in special elections this cycle and, in all three races, the GOP nominee outperformed the 2018 result. In Pennsylvania’s 12th and North Carolina’s 3rd districts, Republicans even outperformed President Donald Trump’s 2016 numbers...

This is literally the shit you guys were posting in 2017. "We're 5-0 in special elections! No problems here at all!"

How did that work out for you all in the midterms?

Disagree with this. I think D.C. is, generally speaking, at it's best when they are sitting on their thumbs and doing nothing. Of course, there are exceptions to that rule, but generally speaking a good politician is an idle politician. Damn near everything they couch turns to crap.
