    is your definition of 'whooped' is about 100k votes going the other way in the correct places then yeah sure.

    Personally Trump got way to close to winning while completely failing to deal with a pandemic, and peoples memories are short. If he runs against in 4 years he will win the R primary and has a decent shot at winning the general election.

    Not that I disagree with the results of the poll, nor am I saying it isn’t troubling, but to put it in some context he’s the only Republican politician who has any real recognition right now.

    Right now they’re all either considered RINO traitors or are seen as simply being subservient to Trump. He dominated the entirety of the GOP scene in one way or another.

    Will that pass with time? We’ll have to see. But Biden has only been president for less than a month, and trumps obviously still in the news.

    Then after that it will be October 3. If you take the wavelength of Trump's skin color (orange) in nanometers, you get 600. Then divide by 45 because he was the 45th President, and you get 13.333 (repeating of course). Subtract 3 from that since Earth is the 3rd planet from the sun, and you get 10.333, round to 1 decimal place because Trump was the bestest, bigliest #1 President ever, and you get 10.3 (October 3).
    Q, is that you????

    Edit - awesome example though, I lol'd.

    Reminder, people JUST voted for Pence/Trump. They're going to lead polls based on that fact alone.

    We'll wait and see. I'm sure Deutsch Bank will collect on their loans in the next couple years and that will be the end of the Donald.

    Sarah Palin successfully grifted the right wing for awhile but she wasn't 100's of millions in debt.

    53% That's quite a drop in three months. Back then he was polling 88%.

    Next week in POLITICO Playbook: Pundits can't quit Trump, sir.

    There's a KKK Act???

    (reads news)

    Holy shit.

    With passage of the Third Force Act, popularly known as the Ku Klux Act, Congress authorizes President Ulysses S. Grant to declare martial law, impose heavy penalties against terrorist organizations and use military force to suppress the Ku Klux Klan (KKK).
    Damn, Grant wasn't fuckin' around.

    Fun fact: the current Republican enclaves in states like Washington and Oregon are direct descendants of white supremacists fleeing Grant's enforcement of the Klan Act. A lot of the landowners in Eastern Washington, Oregon, and Idaho are essentially old money descendants of Confederate emigres.

    So, yeah. The idea that "it's all in the past" continues to be laughable.

    Like I said, true Republican. The Religious Right and the Gun Nuts aren't really old friends of the GOP -- they took them on because Democrats outnumbered them. Seriously, remove abortion and civilians owning weapons of war and leave personal responsibility and small government. How many votes do they lose?

We sent him there to represent us, and we feel very strongly that he did not represent us.”
    The Washington County Republican Party didn't send him there at all. The state of Pennsylvania did.

    He was not, and I wish that was taught more in schools. I only really learned it from a (frankly excellent) biography of Grant by Ron Chernow.

    Great point. With the loss of twitter I expect it to drop even further. People need to stop fearmongering.

    I know you don't like it when we keep pointing out the way Republicans have absolutely fucked the country over the past four years and that it's going to have lasting consequences, but we're not going move on until those responsible have been held to account.

    Sit down, sweaty.

    ROFL so, I guess from what people were saying McConnell voted to acquit Trump cause "he was scared of Trumps base," or something, well, he just lost Trumps base.
