I’d really like to find an unbiased analysis of the voter breakdown:ehh:

Sorry I,m Canadian and I don’t Pretend to understand the vagaries of Anerican Politics but it appears to me progress rather than a set back,no?:slight_smile:

Yes, progress of a sort. But now come the elections in November:blackeye::crutches::stretcher::slapfight:
