Are these the same pollsters that gave candidate Trump a 1 or 2 percent chance of winning as of November 8th? I'd say at this point, President Trump is still the favorite in 2020 if he chooses to run for reelection (although GOP may so damage its brand that he could be forced into running as an independent). I wouldn't call him a strong favorite given the division that exists in the country (cold civil war is not an exaggeration). But a favorite nonetheless.

Progs are soiling their knickers over military helicopters conducting training exercises in Boston, a yearly practice that began pretty early on in the Zippy regime. I'm sure it's Trump scouting out primo locations for the concentration camps.

That ADHD post reminded me of a tidbit about the squaw-who-would-be-president...

Ya. Will work well in the White House too, you babbling idiot.

Can't wait to see her vying for prime time voter support with her dying cat vocal qualities and that ridiculous green weenies look in her eyes when she's fielding questions.

>polls

Just remember, the same people that put out the polls that backfired on the Dems in 2016 are putting out this crap.

The beautiful thing is, they themselves will never know, at least not until after 2018, whether their polls are accurate or not. Because (IMO) Trump supporters have stopped responding.

In advance of the mid-term elections, Pizza Hut announces they are hiring 14,000 drivers.

In other food poisoning news, Chipotle stock took a hit from its absurd price of over 340 bucks per share after one of its "restaurants" passed along some yummy norovirus to unsuspecting (but stupid) customers.

Calling Chipotle "mexxykin" food is like calling Janeane Garafalo a woman.

The crews at the Chipotle joint here are fond of touching their noses and cleaning their ears while they take orders. I witnessed that 5 years ago and have never returned.

James D.

Trump supporters have stopped responding.

They've also stopped LISTENING to the pollsters (and to the MSM fake news peddlers who "report" on them).

Kevlar Kid

The Poles and the polls are two entirely different things in the Trump era.

Captain Hate

From the last thread and to keep from getting willowed, thanks to DrJ, Iggy and narc for the Eastern European replies. I think I was thinking of Kat since the phonetic closeness to Catsmeat might have confused me. Iirc squaredance is as American as I am and shares an affinity for Central and Eastern Europe.

Sbwaters

We have to stand as one.

Mistaken premise that “we” are “one”.

We should be, but I’ll be darned if the GOPe has successfully explained to me how they are different from Democrats who misunderstand both economics and political theory.

If someone is not capable of explaining a good reason for policy, it is more dangerous to leave them with their hands on the levers of government than it is to begin to move them out to pasture.

Poll: Trump’s Base Remains Solidly Behind Him

Porchlight

The big question is do the Republicans care if they lose in 2018? I suspect that as a group, they don't. It is tiring being in the majority and having to actually do stuff instead of mounting show votes.

matt, deplore me if you must

Well, we know that Joey Plugs has the 7-11 Indian accent and magic diner vote locked up. And that articulate and bright and clean and nice looking Barack America will back him up with his big stick. I think he's got a shot. This is a big f'ing deal.

Sbwaters

Porch: The election is2018 is less the issue than who could and should be primaried with strong sensible candidates.

Merely holding office should not be a get-out-of-jail free card for Republicans or Democrats.

Porchlight

I am happy with that approach, sbw, but it's dangerous. The GOPe won't hesitate to torpedo R candidates if their preferreds are primaried out.

Porchlight

It will be like Trump in miniature. Or Castle/O'Donnell.

More like the Murkowski write in

Tom Maguire
I wouldn't call [Trump] a strong favorite given the division that exists in the country (cold civil war is not an exaggeration). But a favorite nonetheless.

I don't know about strong favorite either, but... it is a measure of the weakness of the Dem Party appeal (and candidates) that they couldn't win as the Peace and Prosperity candidate in 2000 or 2016.

In 2004, Kerry was unlikely to beat the incumbent with a recovering economy (the media bubble really does hurt the Dems, who never seem to have any idea what is happening in Realityville).

In 2008 the notion that McCain would be even a tiny bit competitive would normally have been absurd, given the financial melt-down and unsatisfactory situation in Iraq. But Dems are weak and that race looked winnable-ish.

Similarly, Romney should never have been competitive in 2012, but was.

My point being, Republicans for President run stronger than they ought to. When they are the incumbent, that leads to victory. If Trump has any kind of a decent economy and no hideous foreign policy misadventures (IF!), his re-election will look easy.

Agree with TM at 1:27. It's rare for an incumbent to lose, just as it's rare for a candidate from the same party as the outgoing President to win. The exceptions since WW II were because of Reagan. He defeated Jimmuh and his success enabled "Thousand Points of Light" to follow him, though he was such a pale shadow of Reagan that he only got one term.

Not that Collins, Capito, Murkowski and friends care, but Cruz's amendment lowers premiums and increases enrollment per HHS.

Back from lunch with daddy and a bonus guest, chi town lurker!!

Great fun and traded a lot of information. Got to see daddy's three dogs on video (two standing and looking out the window at a Moose while Nelson ran around incircles with excitement). Lurker had some good advice for my grandson's career path which I wouldn't have known about.

Nate kept up just fine until we got into a long discussion using a lot of nicknames and web sites Nate had never heard about. LOL!

Great fun, good food! Thanks to both guys for footing the bill.

Trump Blasts Obama "He Knew [Obamacare] Was A Lie"; Tells GOP: "Don't Leave Town Until Healthcare Is Done"

"Since 2013 Obamacare premiums have skyrocketed… Despite the promise that premiums would decrease by $2,500 on average, they’ve almost increased by $3,000 and even much more than that in some cases. It’s crushing the Middle Class and the families of the Middle Class. It’s frankly crushing our country.

Obamacare was a big lie. You can keep your doctor – Lie! You can keep your plan – Lie! It was a lie directly from the president. You can keep your doctor. You can keep your plan. 28 times he said that. 28 times. And it was a lie and he knew it was!”

maryrose

TM and Jimmyk:
I agree wholeheartedly with both of you.

Kevlar Kid

This sounds like bizzo as usual in the Trump era.

From Treasury Sec Mnuchin--- (via Bill Bonner): "Mnuchin is hurtling toward his first fiasco, unable to get Congress, let alone his colleagues in the Trump administration, on board with a strategy to raise the federal limit on governmental borrowing. […]

Unlike other issues facing the Trump administration – such as passing a health-care bill and overhauling the tax code – raising the debt limit comes with a hard deadline of late September, according to Mnuchin. Failure to do so could lead the U.S. government to miss paying its obligations, causing what analysts would consider a historic, market-rattling default on U.S. government debt.

“We’re going to get the debt ceiling right,” Mnuchin said in an interview Monday. “I don’t think there is any question that the debt ceiling will be raised. I don’t think there is anybody who intends to put the government’s ability to pay its bills at risk.”

SCOTUS Rules Against Trump On Reach Of Travel Ban

Kevlar Kid

Regarding the "split" in the GOP--- fauxCon establishment vs Trumpitos---- how did that play out in Georgia?

When it comes to the presidential of 2020, is the fauxCon establishment going to go with Romney again or some Rovian Bloviator type?

The incumbent will wipe the floor with whomever.

fauxCons will shut up and hold their noses because by then POTUS will own their sorry asses should he survive their treacherous "collusion" with Deep State intelligence operatives and other traitors.

"Unity" going into mid-terms has been a big source of worry for some time now--- yet, the emoCrats have continued to get pants-down-spanked.

I do see all points of view on this. Yet, I think the emoCrat Party has gone the way of the old Soviet Union--- all hat, no cattle.

It was a split decision by SCOTUS, they allowed the broader definition of close relatives but not anything more than that.

Still, it shows that the only real conservatives on the court are Alito, Thomas, and Gorsuch. They would have reversed the whole thing.

I will take the ban we now have.

zombie for Speaker of the House:

This case (Charlie Gard) is important because it illustrates EXACTLY what "Death Panels" are, and that they do indeed exist.

The governing board of Great Ormond Street Hospital in this case are acting as a Death Panel and demanding that this child be killed.

And under socialized medicine, THE PARENTS HAVE NO RIGHTS and can NOT overrule the death panel.

This should send a chill through the US. This should spell the end of Obamacare and the single-payer fantasy.

But no. We are ruled by cowards.

CH, as you say so often, it's the Uniparty.

They're not AFRAID to end the idea of government-run Death Panels. They have no problem with them; they just want to be the ones running them (and be exempted from the panels themselves, of course).

I'd much rather we were ruled by cowards, because if they are swayed by fear, we can bring them over to our way of thinking - we just have to sufficiently terrify them.

maryrose,

Mrs H is enjoying being with the grandkids because they're at a good age (5 & 2) to do things with. She packed some art supplies which they've almost used up. The two year old, Annika, works with her without getting distracted.

Teddy gets as hammered by the hot weather as I do. He loves playing with toys; we recently started getting these monthly Bark Boxes which contain 3 toys and two packs of treats and all are well enjoyed. I took him to the standard poodle's enclosed back yard on Saturday and he spent half the time playing with them and the other half playing with their unused toys.

Porch--thank you so very much for making the UT library thing happen!! That's really nice.

JiB--How amazing re your grandfather; thank you! I'd love to talk with you more about all that someday. Have you ever been to the pet cemetery he and Ethel used for their many pugs and poms--it must be near you. He left a nice part of his estate to the place.

And thank you to all the other well-wishers, and to Dave and Lyle, I will extend the courtesy of not explaining!

An interesting comment in the link I posted above:

"Scaramucci said this would happen on June 9, 2017 on FOX.

Scaramucci said they underestimate the president and how quick he is on feet. How long term he is in strategic thinking. Next move is to clean this out. He tried it the Washington way for at least the first 4 – 5 months and it didn’t work. Now he is going to these people and try it the trump way and see very positive results. You will see effective results and change coming from the president over the next 2-3 months. "

Steph - Huntsman has been nominated for Ambassador to Russia. Abby Huntsman was talking about it on F & F this am.

Old Lurker

Cruz : the key to getting all GOP senators together is lowering premiums."

See, that thinking by itself is the problem.

The uniparty can get the premiums down by a) single payer, or b) massive grants to "insurance" companies so feds can subsidize the premiums, or c) grants one way or the other to favored citizens, or d) massive intervention in the pricing of medical goods and services.

ANY of those will "get the premiums down".

ALL of them will be disastrous for the country and for the medical industry.
