Walker has had an unwavering 2-point lead 49-47* for MONTHS

Based on whose poll? What questions were asked?

Data is not stagnant.

I no longer believe the poll at all.

From what I have seen people are appalled at Walker — they are voting BECAUSE he’s literally an insult to their intelligence.

As a result, I’m convinced not only is Walker’s poll bogus but many of the other stagnant polls are as well.

*Typo I initially wrote 42

When is voting going to be federally codified and protected?

How can it only be half heartedly covered in the amendments when our entire democracy is based on it?

Where’s the legislation for spelling out voting rights and addressing violations like gerrymandering; intimidation; false or misleading information about voting; delay tactics—from inadequate voting locations to shoddy equipment to slowing the mail down and even destroying mail ballots as was done recently; tampering, electronic interference, transparency and accountability/validation measures?

We should not have to worry every election whether the dirty tricksters will brazenly steal because there’s no reprisal if they do.

“We The People” is just a trite phrase without the ability to ensure every vote is securely submitted.

Pelosi did TOO good of a job

Pelosi has masterfully tapped into and harnessed the power of the “lowly” (or so they thought) House. And she has the nerve to be a WOMAN. The attack resulted from their inability to accept this fact.

After seeing her skirt McCarthy’s attempts to block a bipartisan 1/6 committee; and leading two impeachments — Republicans want the House back EVEN MORE THAN THE SENATE imho.

I think Walker and others are somewhat expendable red herrings because they really want to emulate Pelosi, and waste taxpayer $$ to exact revenge and continue doing nothing for the people.

In comparison to The House, the Senate has been relatively dormant — especially with SineMan. With a Republican House and Democrat-led Senate which I think will happen — the Senate will see very little legislation and lots of baseless investigations.

I hope something is done to at least communicate the costs and “benefits” or lack thereof — of their predictable efforts.

Your thoughts?

How do you know which judges to vote for?

There were so many on the ballot that I had to set some parameters. First, they were D’s (damn autocorrect 😂‼️) ; second, they were already seated as D’s and up for re-election; and third, if new I Googled them as I voted early enough that I had the luxury of time to do so at the booth since no one was waiting.

With Google, Ballotpedia was the overwhelming result—which made me distrustful of the source.

How do you make your selections?

Chicago newz featuring Oz

I’m watching article waiting on my car to be serviced.

Basically the piece was about the approaching midterm election but the pictures that flashed while the newzreader talked were of Oz with a few of Fetterman in between.

Just more predictable Republican Owned Media bullshit.

That is all.

Edit to add: PA must be VERY important to them. More $$ needs to go to Fetterman. Make them pay.

Second edit: Because initially it was CBS but as I have seen later, it’s on multiple CHICAGO newz channels confirming to me that PA is extremely important in this election.

Anybody voting yet? Amendment to allow unionization

I hadn’t familiarized myself before going in to vote today. After reading it I voted “yes”. Seems pretty straight forward—I was a little apprehensive because the last election the tax increase for the rich ballot language was very convoluted.

Republicans don't ID their party in campaign ads

They hide behind false claims and hollow promises often sounding like Democrats and confusing voters including me.

I wish Democratic candidates would explicitly identify themselves by party to make it pellucidly clear—we’re the ones who are really working on behalf of the people. Also by identifying it would leave no doubt who the nonidentifiers are.

Subpoena choices: Ignore * Testify * Contest * 5th

*Ignore and he gets indicted.
*Testify and bask in the spotlight.
*Contest and delay.
*Take the 5th with possible forfeiture of protection from the clause if he talks at all.

I think he’s going to contest it. What do you think?

Per ABC "News": Feds look at charging Hunter Biden


Federal agents see chargeable tax, gun-purchase case against Hunter Biden

Delaware U.S. Attorney David Weiss, a Trump appointee, must decide whether to charge the son of the current president …

… Federal agents investigating President Biden’s son Hunter have gathered what they believe is sufficient evidence to charge him with tax crimes and a false statement related to a gun purchase, according to people familiar with the case. The next step is for the U.S. Attorney in Delaware, a Trump administration holdover, to decide on whether to file such charges, these people said.


Crazy AF and believe it is going to be talked about infinitely throughout the election.
