California and New York

The Democrats not being able to gerrymander the hell out these states while Republicans are able to gerrymander Texas and Florida is really a big problem. Democrats would be in the majority with about 225 seats at least . Dumbest thing the people in Cal and NY have done. Yes independent redistricting commissions are a good thing and should be how all states operate, but you can’t unilaterally disarm when the other side doesn’t.

2024 House elections

Every Democratic candidate running against a republican who won a close race this year in states like NY, CA, etc better be prepared to run advertisements featuring MTG, Jordan, Boebert, etc tying their republican opponent to them (they should have done it in this year’s election)…:that’s one thing that republicans are effective at, creating the democratic bogey man/woman of the day and running ads featuring them and attacking their opponent….I live in Texas in the San Antonio area where there are like 4 congressional districts in the same media network, you would have thought that Pelosi and AOC where running for office here

Funniest election coverage ever

I went to this pollster’s twitter because he hadn’t posted since election night.


His last tweet was about how he was going to be here for election night (right website)…


They started out so pumped about the red wave…but as the night carried on they started to get sad/mad….eventually the video stopped and a message appeared stating that they were experiencing “technical difficulties”

This guy has been MIA since Election Day

He tweeted so much leading up to the election and was a constant guest in FoxNews, but crickets since then:

The MSM is calling TFG a midterms loser because a lot of his endorsed candidates lost….but Desantis was crisscrossing the country holding rallies for these same losers, but the media isn’t pointing that out.

House republicans in Swing or Biden districts

I hear all the media folks saying that far right congressmen (like MTG) will have a lot of power and sway in a slim republican majority. But it seems to me like republicans in swing districts or in districts that Biden won would/should have more power. Like all those NY/CA districts that Republicans barely won….the Republicans wouldn’t have a majority without them….isn’t that the reason Sinema and Manchinhsve so much power in the Senate? …:MTG and her ilk are in safe districts they mean nothing to the majority

Judges judges judges!!!!

Let’s be honest, no major legislation will pass congress in the next two years regardless of who controls the house…..this Senate win is big because the most important thing is judges!

Funny scenario

Republicans win the House 218-217…but McCarthy can’t get enough votes to become speaker…:McCarthy resigns his seat….because if he won’t become speaker then why would he even want to remain in the House….any other position would be a demotion for him…:the house is 217-217 and Newsome makes the special election way out

If the Democrats win Arizona and Nevada

That means we have the majority, but do you think that affects the Georgia runoff? Does that keep Democratic voters home thinking that the election isn’t as dire now, or does it have the opposite effect and lower republican turnout, or does it have no effect?
