Neither side really has many vulnerable Senators in 2022. At most, Democrats have 3 vulnerable incumbents. Johnson is the only Republican who I'd consider vulnerable, though Loeffler would join him if she wins in January (the seat is on the ballot again in 2022)
NC and PA are open seats. I'm not including open seats here
FL, IA and OH are not competitive. Any Dems who run in these races would basically be sacrificial lambs
Seems like 1976 was the last election where everyone can agree that both nominees were genuinely decent human beings. The aftermath of Watergate just made it difficult for them to restore trust in our government.
I would add this too but half of the country still believes that Obama wasn't born in America
Just think: it's hard to say anything bad about Carter or Ford as human beings. You can disagree with their politics but it's hard to dispute that they wanted to restore calm and trust to a country that didn't trust its government anymore
Even more interesting: he could retire as early as next year if the GOP loses the GA runoffs. If they lose those, they will lose the Senate and Shelby will no longer chair Appropriations. He apparently wants Katie Britt, his former Chief of Staff, to succeed him in the Senate.
In case you all were wondering what type of Republican she is
Mucarsel-Powell makes a really great point here: while she lost re-election, she outperformed Joe Biden. She lost by 3 while Biden lost #FL26 by 6. Donna Shalala, who lost re-election in neighboring #FL27, underperformed Biden (he won the district).
Look, if I can forgo an on-campus college experience and not have Thanksgiving dinner with my extended family this year then politicians can damn sure give up their fucking dinner parties
This really pisses me off. Americans are suffering and having to make big decisions on things like work, school and holiday celebrations. But politicians are having these stupid dinner parties. This is a slap in the face to every American.
Politicians wonder why voters hate them and then they go and do shit like this
The sheer ineptitude of government officials and the general population to take this virus seriously is utterly disgraceful. It did not need to get this bad. Had we done what we were supposed to do, we could have been out of this pandemic by summer at the earliest.
Gonna try to stop sharing my opinions on everything and just stick to maps and polls
I really shouldn't tweet everything that's on my mind, but seems like every opinion I share is scrutinized or criticized in one way or another. I get that not everyone will agree with what I say but seems like no one else gets this type of scrutiny when they weigh in on something
I fully expect this to be used against me down the line so I'll just leave it here for everyone to see
