    Hey asshole,

    I've apologized to you directly when I've overstepped or presumed something.

    You've never once apologized or held yourself to account for the shady and duplicitous way you conduct every argument you make on these boards.

    That's why I think you're a piece of shit garbage person, and why I'm better than you.

    Predictions about Trump getting re-elected are premature. If the Dems choose a senior policy maker cause its there turn, say for example Joe Biden, Trump will stand an excellent chance of getting re-elected by stint of Dems nominating some even less popular. Sound familiar?

    Now if a former Democratic Governor that has a solid message and campaign organization that is from outside DC could do well Trump could be in trouble.

    Point being thereís no use making projections about Trump until we have an idea who Dems are running. Iím not optimistic as I donít see a current Dem front runner that I think can beat Trump.

    Duplicitous argument? You've lost your shit here because I said polling showing Clinton winning the EC was wrong as if that's some controversial statement. Yet you react like someone attacked your family.

    This debate started out with someone saying that the Democrats have a large polling lead on the generic ballot, and that lead could spell a blue tsunami. Conservatives, rattled by those polls, decided to indict and gaslight polling by saying polls can't be trusted because Clinton polled ahead of Trump, yet lost the election because of the EC. What the EC has to do with a popular vote poll is a mystery to me, but it would seem like you want people to think that Trump won the electoral college and the popular vote, because that way you don't have to accept the conclusions of the polling that shows a Democratic advantage in the midterms.

    I see right through you.

    Mid terms do not use electoral college.

    i disagree with you on biden. I think biden mops the floor with trump. biden would play very well in the midwest, and I think democrats are desperate enough at this point to get rid of trump that the more extreme elements in their party will vote for him all day just to preserve their sanity. Democrats are putting a middle of the roader centrist type up in 2020, book it. if they put up someone like warren or california liberal they will have issues.
    Biography:

    Grind is one of the internets most beloved and influential political thinkers and deep-level theorists in the modern era. He rose to prominence in early 2015 when he alleged, contrary to the dominant theory of christiefanism of the time, that Bill Clintons wife was indeed running for president and wasn't considering settling down to be a grandmother. In 2016, Grind was one of the key figures in proposing the new revolutionary theory of "30% is not a rare occurrence" which shook up the JPP political landscape like no other theory ever had before. His academic prowess, deep-level analysis and remarkable insight into human nature and psychology will undoubtedly result in further complexities being untangled and laid bare. He currently resides in boston, his hobbies include #rekking libs, vaping, and patriotism. You can find him in a thread near you.

    I think conventional wisdom is that she would attempt to rebuild the Obama coalition. Meaning she'd lose. Just like those Democrats who tried to rebuild Bill Clinton's coalition lost. A combination of identity politics and progressive activism can probably win the Democratic nomination but would probably lose in the general.

    Grind is basically right in his premise that what's set Trump apart is he's actually giving his supporters something to vote for. Everyone else just doesn't want you to vote against them. I've seen some of that coming out of the progressive wing of the party but progressives aren't exactly well known for winning elections.

    What Democrats really need to do is provide an consistent and focused message on middle class/working class economic issues and what they will do to fight for working peoples economic well being. The idea of an "anti-Trump" candidate is a sure loser. As Bill Clinton famously said...and why this is beyond the grasp of so many Democrats is beyond me...is "It's the economy stupid."

    I think Biden could give Trump a good fight. I was using Biden as an example of what usually happens when a party nominates a candidate based on that's what the party bosses want. It rarely works out well.

    I personally don't hold Trump in very high esteem but for what ever fucking reason no one, left or right, wants to take on his economic message. Democrats seem to be ignoring it as a bunch of white rednecks who don't know where their best interests lie and the Republicans are scared shitless of Trump populist economic message which runs counter to traditional Republican laissiez-faire pro-business capitalism but seem to have the smarmy attitude that the'll just co-opt him. Both have proven wrong and Trump has proven far more wiley and capable than most people would give him credit for.

    Don't get me wrong I still believe he's a cynical opportunist who could give a shit less about good governance but he's damned sure proven he's smarter than the Democratic and Republican establishment.

    Mott, if you do not want to run for office at least become a political columnist or something. Direct and to the point with you. No bullshit. Refreshing.
