Reasonable, rational voters don't like Republicans.



I think Roe might be kicking their arse in the polls.

1. A good,swift kick.

Also he fact that Congress is getting bill after bill passed for the benefit of the people is now beginning to show. Many with Republican support.

Mitch is shown on the Senate floor complaing with a yellow jacket on. How appropriate!

2. A lot of folks didn't expect them to actually overturn Roe

since GOP needs that as a wedge issue. Plenty of voters might agree with Dems on other economic or social issues.

3. If majority rule ruled, there wouldn't even be a Republican in any office.

4. Nobody wants government mandated birth. Women are NOT state-owned incubators.

Roe, Roe, Roe your vote
against theocracy!
Republicans revoke your rights
and kill democracy!

5. The problem is that too many are TOO rational and reasonable

They assume that everything is fine. I mean, they are still working. The streets are not in flames. Their children are still in school. Their favorite TV programs continue. Life is good for the most part. No need to get all emotional and concerned about politics. Too much negativity in that arena. No need to even vote. It won't make any difference right???

9. Nothing about that kind of complacency counts as "rational and reasonable"

Unflappable calmness might be a common caricature of what it means to be rational and reasonable.

But in a situation like our country is in right now it's about as rational and reasonable as falling asleep at the wheel. Or, like our favorite cluelessly calm cartoon canine above, complacently consuming coffee amidst catastrophe.

11. I hope you are right

That enough will see that the "rational" thing to do is not only vote, but vote Democratic. That the only "reasonable" thing to do is stop the christian white nationalists, fundies, and conspiracy nuts, their feckless orange leader, and the activist court helping them out.

7. It's one poll

But there are encouraging trends across poll averages with D's gaining 2.5 pts in the generic to bring it a dead heat with the trend line moving positive.

Sorry, I just hate cherry picking polls.

10. poll

Well, their methodology is staying the same and it's showing the results of the exact same questions being asked in a random survey taken every two months.

That's a really solid way, technically speaking, for a polling organization to establish trendlines.

On the questions where its possible to have historical data, they list data as far back as 2014 for some questions. (Obviously they weren't asking people in 2014 how much they approved or disapproved of the job Biden was doing as president. But stuff like "right track or wrong track for the country and "do you approve of the job Congress is doing" can go back a long way.)

Sure, the original post here chose to talk about this poll because he liked what it was saying. But it's not saying anything (outside of its margin of error) that the average of polls isn't also saying.

8. The most reasonable, rational voters haven't liked Republicans for decades.

The voters who are just catching on a bit right now, many of whom are still far from locked-in on realizing what a shrieking mob of grifters and tinfoil-hatters and authoritarian bigots the Republican party has become, are a bit too damned slow for my tastes.

Happy to have 'em voting for Democrats while it lasts, however.

The 37% of Democrats who don't realize how vital control of Congress is right now aren't the sharpest tools in our shed either.
