What is this feeling of yours based off of? I'm really curious if you can provide any evidence for this.

I'd call all of that as pretty weak evidence when there's no trend in party affiliations in the last 20 years. Looking at a change over a couple months (for approval ratings) and some easily explained away exit poll differences doesn't really convince me. Here's some pew research data if you're curious.

If they do this analysis again in 4 months and there's some kind of change in the party affiliation data then I'll agree with you, until then you are just seeing what you want to see based off next to nothing. 

edit: that said, I appreciate you giving me some kind of evidence and not just making the claim over and over again, even if I find the evidence weak.

Some networks are now calling the Arizona Senate race for Sinema (D). With only like 100-200k left to count and a 35k lead, its looking more and more difficult

Senate is probably going to be 53 to 47, unless the recount in Florida turns up a lot of errors in the counting.

Sad. We actually have a party in the US, the nation known for trying to spread Democracy around the world, that doesn't want to count all the votes.

Absentee ballots? Provisional ballots? Mail in ballots? Manual transfer ballots? Just ignore them all, Republicans say.

Just calling it as i see it, not claiming anything as fact. Which is why i used the word "seems"

So, you think the Dems are supressing their own votes?

Considering how blatantly incompetent the BOE is in Florida, you can't rule it out.

So apparently there really was voter fraud in Florida.


"Whoa - @NBCNews/@TODAYshow reporting that “in mostly Republican Bay County, an untold number of survivors of Hurricane Michael emailed their ballots.”"


.@BayVotes SOE said he “told” @KenDetzner’s office he was going to accept emailed ballots and did not “wait for permission.”


Now that everyone is on this story, it’s important to note that @BayVotes is pretty certain that other Panhandle counties impacted by hurricane were open to email voting. “I never asked for approval,” he said. “I just told others what I was doing, along with other supervisors.”

"The election supervisor in hurricane-wracked Bay County allowed some voters to illegally cast ballots by email — an act specifically prohibited by Gov. Rick Scott when he issued an emergency order to expand voting opportunities there after the storm. "

  • Deadliest mass shooting by an individual in US history (10/01/2017)
  • Deadliest high school shooting in US history (02/14/2018)
  • Deadliest massacre of Jews in US history (10/27/2018)
  • Political assassination attempt of TWO former presidents(and 10+ other people)  (10/23/2018 - and beyond)

Voting by email... LOL. In no way is that secure or even verifiable. All email votes must be disqualified.

broward is a joke. democrats are a joke. snipes runs a circus.

unbelievable how some want to count illegal votes from illegals! really? not to mention no oversite is allowed by the democrat snipes. this process needs to be transparent, as it has NOT been at all, not to mention all these "ballots: being found in odd places, and how is it that a part of florida that was basically destroyed still could get in the votes and follow the law?

its so sdad and almost hilarious how some defend this whole thing? some just dont give a shit if the law is followed if its their person in power.

OK, this is enough.  You keep outright lying.

1. Nobody wants to count votes from illegal aliens.  Shame on you for suggesting such nonsense.

2. There is oversight.  The provisional ballot validation in Palm Beach County was live streamed with lawyers from both parties overseeing it.  I know because I watched it.  Here is a video of it.  The recounts themselves are overseen by lawyers from both parties.  This is required by law and is being followed.  Unless you can prove otherwise, stop lying.

3. Most of the "found" ballets are simply provisional ballots that always come in after the election date by the very nature of being a provisional ballot.  If you don't want to count provisional ballots, change the law.

4. Not only are they not on time, but they received accommodations because of Hurricane Michael AND their SOE is violating the law by allowing email ballots.

Maybe you should stop lying.

No one wants illegals' votes to count?  Well, expect the lawyers representing Gillum and Nelson in Florida.  Oh, and the election supervisor in Broward County. And I'm sure all the Dems who want illegals to count toward the population in their state, which determines Federal funding and how many House seats they qualify for, wouldn't mind them voting.

Of course, that speaks nothing to the BS going on in those two counties and Florida.  Moving ballots in private cars.  Finding ballots after Election Day, when the law states they are to be accounted for that night.  Those ballots just so happen to heavily favor Dems.  The supervisor's not wanting any oversight at all.  One denying a court order for transparency.  One now denying reporters in to oversee, which has been permitted in the past.  And personally, I don't think candidates should be allowed to un-concede.

Then, on a pathetic side note, we have Arizona and Georgia.  Arizona Reps foolishly agreed to allow the counties to continue to "fix" ballots that were deemed invalid, well past the deadline.  Probably buying into the lie that the last votes would actually favor McSally.  Surprise, Surprise, they helped Sinema win.  And Abrams in Georgia won't concede, hoping she can find some more votes, somewhere, anywhere, to dwindle Metz lower than 50%.  That race should be 100% done, but I guess she can't handle losing.

If you honestly think everything is up to par with these elections, then you are yourself a dishonest broker.
