What's the line on Bruce Schroeder being the next Republican running for the WI State Supreme Court?

Want to know so I can bet my MAGAT relatives when they try to claim the judge wasn't biased.

New Republican talking point being floated....

So my Mom was watching one of the Sunday morning talk shows this AM and she said that one of the Republican hit men was saying Democrats were giving away $400,000 to families that were separated as a result of Trump. Wasn't sure where this was coming from. Is this complete B.S? Did one family get this as part of a legal settlement?

When an anti-vaxxer shows up at a hospital with Covid....

They should give them Ivermectin (as much as they want) and send them home.

Trump and Pompeo looked at having the CIA assassinate Julian Assange...

I don't think you can dismiss the possibility that Jeffrey Epstein wasn't as lucky as Assange.

So where are the sensationalistic national headlines....

GOP IN DISARRAY

GOP REELING IN HISTORIC DEFEAT

you know, the ones they always print when a Democrat loses in a close election.

I mean, its California so the outcome isn't surprising, but that never stopped the press when a Democrat loses a close race in a Republican-leaning area.

Minneapolis Police

This story is really disturbing. They need to clean the fucking house in Minneapolis PD, and if that means firing everyone and rebuilding it because the police can't be held accountable for lying on reports and falsifying evidence, so be it.

I also hope Jaleel Stallings sues TFG for defamation for calling him a "would-be cop killer".

Idea for gun control

Let's make it illegal to sell assault rifles and ammo, and if anyone tries to sell, anyone can report them for a $10,000 award which comes from a fine on the person selling the ammo or weapon.

I mean, we are not technically making it illegal to own a firearm.

With all these Trump/Conservative rallies....

I feel like we need something to celebrate Joe Biden's victory and to draw some attention away from the liars. Hate to see the lie get propagated by these morons (or morons, as they would spell it).

I am not sure if anyone has drawn this parallel....

But isn't Trump's claim that he deserves credit for the Covid vaccine basically the same as Al Gore taking credit for helping fund early research into the internet? Of course, Gore's claim got lambasted while Trump gets a free ride from the MSM.

Are some of our assumptions about the 2020 Election in WI correct?

Specifically, I am referring to a narrative that says that increases to Trump support in rural areas was offset by increases in Biden support in the Milwaukee & Madison metropolitan areas.

The data I am looking at is from the NYT: https://www.nytimes.com/interactive/2021/upshot/2020-election-map.html

This map allows you to see the total votes in 2020, but it also shows shifts from 2016.

The interesting thing I am seeing when I look at the shift (Change from 2016) map is that while some rural areas shifted more red (Republican), there were also a lot of areas in in northern and western WI that shifted to the Democrats, even if they overall were heavily Republican.

The other interesting thing was that there was a shift to the Republicans from within the City of Milwaukee, City of Racine, and City of Kenosha. This seems in line with the national numbers that did show a shift in Black and Hispanic support toward Trump in 2020. Do you think this was a backlash to the unrest due to George Floyd/Jacob Blake, decreases in Democratic turnout in these areas, and/or the effects of misinformation on social media? Or maybe something else I am not considering?
