Re: Voted Today

Low information voters are GOP voters. https://www.washingtonpost.com/election ... xit-polls/

68% of South Carolina GOP primary voters believe that Joe Biden did NOT win the 2000 election.

'nuff said.

Re: Where in the World Have You Been?

I've seen all the footage of Texas City. It's quite the scene, all right. Imagine a time when all your news footage came from three companies that used cameras made by Bell and Howell and Mitchell, and which needed at least two people to carry to the setup and a third to load film into magazines. N...

Re: Voted Today

Trump was immediately projected to win South Carolina. Polling suggested he would win by 30 points, and of course, Trump bragged that he would win by MORE than they thought he would, but right now, with 27% counted, he's only winning by 20. Well, he just makes everything up anyway. And at his victor...

Re: CNN POLLS HAVE TRUMP WINNING

You miss the point. Which is he had changed and upgraded his message. It is salesmanship he is convincing people to but something they don't want or need. If the DNC takes him lightly the way they did when he ran against HRC they will lose. Until a couple days ago I was doing just that. Telling my ...

Re: CNN POLLS HAVE TRUMP WINNING

Again listen to it from outside of your personal beliefs. What you describe is exactly what I expected to hear. He has packaged his message in a much different more populist way. While the gist is still the same the waynitbis being packaged is far different. I know what he says. It’s all about the ...

That would mean your ballot would have to be marked with a number or other identifier that could tie you to a particular ballot. Since the poll workers don't know when a particular voter is coming in to vote it would be hard for poll worker to assign a number to the ballot or to mark on the voter l...

Re: CNN POLLS HAVE TRUMP WINNING

I am saying he had a populist message that I can see how it relates to people. Basically he is making a patriotic speech. Where he is saying the country has problems and is in trouble. But, if we work together we can fix it. If you get a chance maybe it is online. Try to listen to it not from the p...

I thought it odd that you had to walk across the room and who you voted for was pretty easy to see before you put it in the other machine which counts the ballots. I also didn't like that on the screen it showed how many people had voted and what number you were. Overall it was pretty easy. Just sh...

I was speaking specifically about the speech I heard last night which is the first speech I've heard from him in years. I was very surprised at how much he had changed hus rhetoric.

Okay, Glenn you’re an officially a low-information voter, since you don’t understand what ballot initiatives are and how they work. One should always, if they aren’t a low-information voter, look up what’s on the ballot before you go.

It's true that drumpf has tapped into a sort of dissatisfaction that usually leads to fascist dictatorships. In this day and age, fascist dictatorships lead to vast expanses of burned and pockmarked terrain. I still blame the Nooz. Drumpf is a TV machine, and every time he shows up to answer the la...

Except none of the things you listed apply to any mainstream democrats and you have never not voted for a Democrat. Plus you can't think of anytime in the last 40 years where you can look back and say I made the wrong choice. In retrospect the republican was the better choice. No, Glenn, it wasn’t....
