Trump brags about dominating poll...that consisted of only his base supporters.

Is there any good reason that Manafort HASNT flipped yet?

He has to know Mueller has enough federal and state crimes to put him away for life. And he’s just...content with that?

In conservative weekly Gallup poll, Trump drops from 40 to 37 percent, disapproval from 57 to 59.

I imagine it's due to his response, or lack thereof, to the Parkland shooting.

Is your polling location a non-secular setting?

I moved to Florida about half a year ago and recently registered to vote. I decided to drive over to my new polling location since google maps told me it was only a couple miles away, just so I knew where it was. I arrived there, and it's in a church.

Now, I don't have any problem with religion. But I feel like there's a clear violation of the separation between church and state by having a polling location in a church, and I know that many polling locations are in churches.

Am I the only one who feels this way?

Republicans are trying to tie local Democrats to Nancy Pelosi...and it's backfiring. Story inside.

This story is about the Democrats recent win in Florida's special election tonight.

"Much of the race focused on other hot-button national issues, such as immigration. Buchanan tried to paint Good as a friend of sanctuary cities and as a “liberal lawyer” in the mold of U.S. House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi.

That the race became so nationalized is a sign that the underlying motivation for many voters right now is Trump, either trying to handicap his presidency or support it.

Good tied Buchanan to Trump in her ads early on, betting that the president’s popularity had waned in the district and more people would be motivated to vote against him than for him."



This isn't the first time Republicans have tried to do this, and it's continuing to not work in their favor. It appears trying to make Pelosi the new boogyman isn't proving as effective as they did with Obama and Hillary.

NYT: They Cant Wait to Vote: Energized Democrats Target Dominant G.O.P. in Statehouses

NEWTOWN, Pa. — For Republicans in the states, the political warning signs keep mounting: In Virginia, it was an electoral shellacking that nearly snapped their 20-year grip on the State House. In Wisconsin, it was a midwinter rout in a special election for the State Senate, fought in a conservative district.

And in Pennsylvania, it has been an exodus of state legislators from the Philadelphia area, where more than half a dozen Republicans have opted for retirement over a strenuous campaign in 2018.

“It looks like it’s going to be a war zone,” said State Representative Gene DiGirolamo, a moderate Republican, of his native Bucks County, a spacious suburb on the New Jersey border.

As national Republicans dig in to defend their majorities in Congress in the midterm elections, party leaders across the country have grown anxious about losses on a different front: state legislatures. Over the last decade, Republicans have dominated most state capitals, enacting deep tax cuts, imposing new regulations on labor unions and abortion providers, and drawing favorable congressional maps to reinforce their power in Washington.

Really inspiring piece, well worth a read.
