More good news for the Dems.

Democratic candidates for the House lead Republicans by 11 percentage points among registered voters, 53-42 percent. That holds among likely voters across a range of turnout scenarios, with 12- to 14-point Democratic leads. It’s difficult for Democrats to hold their vote share in the shift from registered to likely voters, especially in midterms – a testament to Democratic motivation this year.

The Democrats’ advantage reflects a wide gender gap in this poll, produced for ABC by Langer Research Associates. Women who are registered to vote support Democratic candidates by 59-37 percent, while men split about evenly, 46-48 percent. That, in turn, reflects these women’s more negative views of Trump – they’re 16 points more apt than men to disapprove of his work in office. As reported Friday, they’re also more critical of his latest Supreme Court nominee, Brett Kavanaugh.

If it holds on Election Day, the current 24-point gender gap in House vote preference would be the widest on record for a midterm election in exit polls dating back to 1982 (albeit slightly; it was 21 points in 1994 and 20 in 2014).

Once again it appears that it up to the women to save this country from the stupidity of middle-aged white men. (And yes I fall within that demographic.) 

And speaking of stupidity for reasons that completely escape me it appears that Trump is actually moving up in the polls:

Boosted by comparatively strong ratings on the economy, Trump has 41 percent approval for his work in office overall, up from 36 percent in late August. Still, 54 percent disapprove – a problem for the Republican Party, given that most potential voters say they’re looking for candidates who share their opinion of the president. 

Well, I guess it’s good that more than half the country disapproves of what Trump is doing, but honestly, that still feels awfully low to me. 

I mean the guy is obviously Putin’s bitch, he is tearing immigrant families apart, destroying our relationships with our allies, and is about to crash our economy, trust me. 

So how can he still have this level of support? 

Seriously, I have no idea. 

All I know is that we need to vote, vote aggressively, and hey why not pick up a couple of other registered voters on the way to the polls?

    “And speaking of stupidity for reasons that completely escape me it appears that Trump is actually moving up in the polls:”

    It shouldn’t. Refer to one of Carville’s most famous quotes.

    “Once again it appears that it up to the women to save this country from the stupidity of middle-aged white men. (And yes I fall within that demographic.)”

    Speak for yourself while self flagellating. Grow some balls and be a man dude. Christ. What the hell is wrong with the neutered Democratic white beta males, you are an embarrassment to all the rest of the men of all colors and creeds.

    And yes, ALL other men not in your category are shaking their heads and laughing at you.

      Well, my vote is one that the Democrats can count on, so I and my balls are just fine.

      However, it is still true that the vast majority of white middle-aged men are going to vote GOP in 2018, and most likely will also continue to support Trump in 2020.

      Those are just the facts.

      So yes it is up to women, who are fleeing the GOP in droves now, to save the country from those who cannot see past their own self-interests to do it themselves.

    “The figure is remarkable in that Trump is the first president in modern history to begin fundraising so early in his first term. He technically launched his 2020 campaign the day of his inauguration and officially said he’d run once more this February, 980 days before the next presidential election. He has been holding campaign-style rallies and soliciting donations ever since.” “Lara Trump, the president’s daughter-in-law and a senior adviser to the Trump campaign, said more than 97 percent of the donations in the quarter were “low-dollar” amounts of $200 or less. “After twenty months in office with unparalleled results for peace and prosperity in America, President Trump has provided the results he promised,”
    “Grassroots America has responded to these remarkable results and the booming Trump economy with their generous support of our campaign.”

    ““Their DNA has totally mutated in the last year-and-a-half, and I think a lot of it has been because of the repeated recurrences of violence,” “-Representatives Mario Diaz-Balart and Devin Nunes have posed for pictures with Proud Boys on the campaign trail. Fox News anchor Tucker Carlson posed in a Fox green room with two Proud Boys and Republican operative Roger Stone” “individual members have volunteered to provide security because of the “large number of death threats I have received and they many potentially violent and physical attacks on me in public spaces when I travel.” “For the record, I reject the charge that the group are white supremacists or bigots,” Stone said. “I would not associate with such people.”
    Stone said the Proud Boys also acted as his security force at the Mother of All Rallies, a right-wing event in D.C. this year.”

    “Just don’t fucking wear your Fred Perry, or decide to belt: ‘Proud of Your Boy,’”
    “Jason Lee Van Dyke, a Proud Boy who also acts as the group’s lawyer said the group has found welcome with a populist, pro-Trump wing of the Republican Party.
    “I think some Republicans appreciate the Proud Boys because they understand what we actually stand for: love of country, small government, freedom, and fun,” “

      “TPUSA FIU Fun”
      “Members of college conservative group Turning Point USA joked about Muslim refugees raping white women and watching anime porn depicting children”
      ““avoid using the n word and don’t reference Richard Spencer too much and don’t Jew hate … all the time.” Everything else, apparently, was fair game.

      One member of the group posted a meme featuring a brown Pepe the Frog, the alt-right’s mascot, raping a Swedish woman, while another brown Pepe holds a gun to a man’s head. In the background of the image, a “Refugees Welcome” sign implies that Muslim refugees in Europe will rape women.”

    The U.S. government closed the 2018 fiscal year $779 BILLION in the RED

    “The FACT that our government is closing in on TRillion-dollar deficits in the midst of an economic expansion should be a serious issue for voters and candidates,”
    William Hoagland, its senior vice president, said of next month’s U.S. congressional elections.”

    OT FB>”Folks, I learned yesterday that one of your fellow Stonekettle minions, Barb Padgett, has passed away.
    I’m heartbroken to hear of Barb’s passing. It may seem that that sometimes your voices get lost in the crowd here, but I know many of you, despite your multitude. I promised myself early on that I would take time each week to look at your pages, to listen to your voices and read your comments, and never take any of you for granted. Barb was one of those who stood out, a familiar voice that often messaged me with encouragement, or criticism when necessary. She was a kind and intelligent person, passionate about the birds who visited the feeders outside her windows — a trait she shared with my dad. She was likewise passionate about America and about the ideals many of us here hold dear and she wasn’t shy about letting those around her know. Though I never met her in person, she’s someone I considered a friend. And she had many, many friends here.
    The world was a better place for having had her in it and we were a better group for having had her as a member. She will be sorely missed.”< Jim Wright

    “It’s not even in the Top 5 for Houston.” “Trump’s Oct. 22 event for the senator he used to routinely mock as “Lyin’ Ted” will be held at the NRG Arena in Houston, which seats about 8,000.”

    I’m a middle-aged white man and I have always voted for Democrats (including my first vote to give Jimmy Carter a second term). I can’t fathom the Republican mindset of throwing their fellow humans under the bus and destroying the environment.

    “I don’t believe anybody has ever had this kind of impact,” the president said. Yet, when it comes to the results, he absolves himself from any responsibility. Trump has also followed the campaign recommendations by former White House aide Steve Bannon, who urged the president and the GOP to forget about female voters because they’ll never win them anyway.

    If Democrats win the House they could initiate investigations or the impeachment process. Even still, Trump said he would “handle it very well.”<RiiiggghhhttT

    Just wait until folks find out that the rethugs are planning on raiding Social Security and Medicare in order to “fix’ the deficit created by their tax cuts for the rich. They must think we are really stupid and they really want to lose big time in Nov.

      Problem is there are too many stupid people addicted to their Koolaid who show up and vote.
