Maybe, but on the other hand, both Senate candidates outperformed Trump in Georgia, albeit just barely. More broadly, downballot Republicans easily outperformed Trump in general. Biden is going to win the popular vote by 4.5-5 points, while I think Democrats “won” the popular vote for the House by only about 2 or 3 Read more

It’s not like it hasn’t been done before. When Nixon was decompensating he’d give orders that were tacitly ignored. I think Reagan in his second term was “handled” pretty forcefully as well.

I’d be slightly more impressed my Senators have enough sense to recognize Trump is unfit if they hadn’t proudly supported him for years. Braun actually just ran in 2018 as a proud member of TeamTrump.

It is that by losing, the Republicans will continue to pack the courts, and deny reality, and continue “fix” the system to suppress the vote of the majority of the population. We will be Read more

I think this has to be said, but Trump over performed with Black men and Latinos. There were a lot of complaints that people looked at Latinos as a monolithic ethnic group, and now we are seeing the outcome.

I have no hard data to back this up, but I’d be willing to bet that 80-85% of the people that voted for Mitch McConnell have at one point complained that senators need term limits. And this 80-85% have voted Mitch into office for 35 years straight with no sense of irony.

Because hate gives people a community that expects nothing difficult of them. You don’t have to learn; you don’t have to change. You just say you don’t like something, or someone, and you’re in the club. Read more

I know we shouldn’t trust polls ever, ever again but this race was giving me hope because it was allegedly so close. Read more
