Even Lex agreed it was out in the open, you’re not winning this one.
And yet the Democrat turnout in key demographics was lower than the two previous Obama administrations, the reality was that Democrat turnout stagnated whilst GOP turnout surged. That’s already been proven by the polling data so again, not really helping your case, arguments about electoral roll vs. popular vote aside.
Conspiracy theories much? Clinton lost only in part due to that controversy, the simple fact was she wasn’t an appealing choice like Obama was, she was a DNC coronation which nobody felt had actually earned the nomination rather than had it served to her on a silver platter and everyone that wasn’t FOX was already assuming she’d be the next President.
Assumptions are dangerous things, as America found out.
I’ll disagree on that point, given multiple States actually nominated Sanders and given Sanders actually had a half decent message as opposed to “Muh first woman president!” which was the first and last chapter of Hillary’s campaign.
I didn’t say I celebrated it. I said America got the President they deserved. The country has been steadily experimenting with insanity over the last five years or so, with Trump they decided rather than using a feather, they’d go ahead and fuck the whole chicken. Eventually, America will work out some kind of sane approach to Politics, hopefully before it pulls a Fallout and nukes itself into the ground.
I’m not going to hold my breath on that one.
Well frankly a lot of the other decisions that could be affected ( LGBT rights for example ) are unlikely to be messed with as drastically as Roe vs Wade, because Trump isn’t quite so fussed about that as he is carrying through on getting that ruling overturned. Doing so will pretty much guarantee that he can get turnout in the Bible Belt and the South in the next election even if he did set fire to the rest of the country.
Blaming the Republicans for being dicks isn’t going to do any good, it’s on the Democrats to come up with a viable and compelling message and motivating their voting base to actually turn out and vote.
Otherwise America will continue to get Trump.
