I was sure that was the case when Obama was elected, and his first term showed that was going to be the case. Then, someone decided to reelect him.
Never underestimate the selfishness and ability of the American voter to vote against their own best interests. The “middle class” deserves whatever misery they find themselves mired in. Regardless, even in four years, decades of damage will be done. We are still reeling from Roe vs Wade 40 years ago. Not even Ronald Reagan could right that grave offense to our Lord, nor save the millions of lives lost it gave us.
It would be incredible if Texas went Democratic. One for the history books. I really don’t care who wins this election although I hope it’s a close race election day, just for the excitement. But I’m all right (or rather, not all right) either way.
Yet look at Trump and Clinton in early voting in a number of the swing states. I saw a clip of an interview of Sean Spicer on CNN and excuse me this may not be perfectly transcribed regarding what he said but he was talking about the data in regards to absentee ballots and he explained how “in almost every case” Republicans are “ahead” compared to 2012 and Democrats are “below” where they were in the 2012 election. He pointed out what 850,000 more Republicans have requested a ballot compared to 2012. I think that may have just been for Florida. He explained how, “Republicans do better on Election Day, we’ve always lagged behind Democrats have always done better in early vote. What we’re seeing in this cycle is we’re catching up to them and they’re not doing as well as they have in the past and they have an enthusiasm gap. So if they can’t win by wide margins, I’ll give you one example, North Carolina, Barack Obama had a 300,000 vote lead going in in 2012, and lost on Election Day”
“They need to be winning not by a little bit by a lot and when we cut into that lead and when they don’t do as well that portends very well for us on Election Day”.
