With a whopping 63% of people over 25 having at least a bachelor's degree, Mississippi Senate District 25 is the most educated senate district in the state. Though it remains solidly Republican for now, it has seen the same leftward drift.
The religiosity of southern college educated whites is what will keep them more Republican than their northern counterparts. While rural northern whites are starting to vote like they do in the south, it will take some time before he reverse happens.
If NC had a Senate race in 2018, Dems would have won it. Unfortunately for Dems the seats have been up in the wrong years. Dems will spend heavily on next year's race but they're underdogs with the lack of a top tier candidate and the state's partisanship.
Dems have exactly top tier officeholder and that's Roy Cooper. Since Dems failed to win the Lieutenant Governor's race, him running is completely out of the question.
State Senator Don Davis would be a strong candidate but him running is not going to happen. He'd never win a primary.
The Republican resistance to the $2,000 checks idea is interesting. Trump has brought in a ton of new voters to the GOP but most mainstream Republicans still balk at embracing the more populist economic policies these voters like.
Trump has had very little success in this regard. He has by and large been unable to get mainstream Republicans to embrace his economic policies.
Even Republican Senators like Chuck Grassley and Ron Johnson, who represent states where Trump did better than your average Republican, aren't rushing to embrace this stuff.
Much changed between 2012 and 2020. While the WWC voters in the midwest get all the attention, Democrats saw huge dropoffs with them in timber country too. Biden did 4% better than Obama thanks to his considerable gains in Seattle Metro. He also held his own out east.
People are upset about crowdfunding a poll because this is the internet. It's not the end of the world but some people sure act like it is.
It's not anyone's business to decide how others spend their money.
It's certainly not my place to lecture others on how to spend their money. I don't care enough to do so. I'm not actively worried about what others spend their money on. Now I'd prefer it if everyone spent their money on me instead but hey, that's just my opinion.
Compared to Obama's reelection win, a lot of Democratic Senate candidates did quite poorly this year. Several Dem incumbents considerably underperformed him. On the other hand, candidates like Mark Kelly and Barbara Bollier had terrific performances.
Massachusetts didn't see a ton of ticket splitting between President and Senate but there was some. There were 14 precincts that voted for Biden and Kevin O'Connor (R) and 39 that voted for both Trump and Markey. In terms of towns that translated to 2 DEM/GOP and 11 GOP/Dem.
The Trump/Markey precincts are pretty much blue collar areas.
Biden/O'Connor towns: Hanover and Sutton.
Trump/Markey towns: Ashby, Dracut, Hubbardston, Leicester, Ludlow, New Braintree, Palmer, Swansea, West Bridgewater, Ware, and Winchendon.
West Virginia was pretty much a bloodbath for downballot Democrats this year but State Delegate Brent Boggs handily won reelection to his 83% rural district in central WV. A member of the NRA, Boggs was first elected to the House in 1996.
Whoever operates this account is back to pretending to be a real person. This account went offline for a while before coming back under a completely different username. This account has claimed to be an Asian woman from Provo, Utah who attends GWU. (h/t @AndrewSolender )
No such person attends George Washington University.
No evidence has been found to support this existence of this supposed "Thao Nguyen" person.
No GOP nominee has won a town in Berkshire County, Massachusetts since 2000. Seems likely that streak will end in 2024. The little town of Florida went for Biden by 1.4% or a margin of six votes. Was Obama +33% in 2012.
It's really pathetic how desperate they are to copy AOC without understanding her appeal. All these people have a fraction of the following she does. You can't copy the "Squad" and expect it to take off.
