Fake News vs the God-Emperor

They both cannot be correct:
The blue wave is going to hit with a vengeance in Tuesday’s midterm elections, according to pollsters who say Democrats should easily capture the 23 seats they need to regain control of the House. But an upbeat President Trump predicted victory in the Senate — where pollsters say the GOP has a good chance to maintain or widen its majority — and even the House.

“There is a great electricity in the air like we haven’t seen, in my opinion, since the ’16 election,” Trump told reporters before leaving for a rally in Cleveland.

“So, something’s happening . . . I think we’re going to do very well in the House. I have never seen the energy that we have, the energy that this whole party has now, it’s really incredible.”

Whatever the outcome, Trump made it clear these midterm elections are about him.

“In a sense, I am on the ticket,” he said at the rally.

Earlier, in a telephone town hall, the president urged supporters to get out and vote because “the press is very much considering it a referendum on me and us as a movement.”

Every major poll said Trump is wrong about the Republicans maintaining control of the House.

The political website ­FiveThirtyEight calculated that Democrats had an 87.5 percent chance of winning it back.

Similarly, The Cook Political Report said Republicans had a tougher road to maintaining their majority. “We rate 75 races as competitive, including 70 GOP-held seats and just five held by Democrats. A ‘Red Exodus’ is contributing to the potential ‘Blue Wave.’ Of Republicans’ 41 open seats, 15 are rated as toss-ups or worse, and another five only lean Republican,” according to the website.

Sabato’s Crystal Ball, a website run by University of Virginia Center for Politics Director Larry Sabato, predicted that Democrats would easily pick up the necessary 23 seats. But it also cautioned that anything was possible with the country so deeply divided and memories of Trump’s upset win in 2016 still fresh in mind.

Most polls predicted similar results, with a CNN generic ballot survey showing Democrats ahead of Republicans by 55 percent to 42 percent, and the RealClearPolitics average of generic polls showing Democrats leading with 49.7 percent compared with 42.4 percent for Republicans.
If, as I anticipate, Republicans remain in control of the House, this election is going to destroy the rest of the mainstream media's remaining credibility.

Those in my circle of family and friends (90% right or right leaning) all tell me the same thing.... We don't show our hand to pollsters.

The polls are simply wrong. A 2% margin of error is not nearly enough to compensate for the cold shoulder conservatives are giving to the media and polling outlets. And if a red wave today erodes media credibility even further, then surely it will destroy the whole notion of predictability from polling data.

Our polls open in just over an hour. I am going there first thing. There is nothing I'd like more than to see Claire McCaskill get trounced.

"Does it even make sense to vote for a red senator and then a blue representative? "

Sure. Many people vote for the individual they deem most worthy. We all look at other peoples' local races as just one of many in the national picture, but when you vote for your own senator or representative, you're picking the person who can do the best for you, specifically - and your industry, and your neighborhood, and the national money they can bring in to your state from the federal government, and how they choose to share those federal-dollar spoils. Plus, senators and representatives do different jobs, have different areas of influence, etc., and so it's not as simple as merely two national reps.

(The weather across the country, and specifically in some of the more contested areas, is going to play a bigger part today than in the usual election. It's going to be nasty, and the less committed people tend to stay home on such days. And I bet we're more committed than they are.)

That happens, but it isn't what drives differences in partisan splits.

1. House Representatives are elected by geographic district of roughly similar population, while Senators are two per state, elected at-large.

1a. House Districts may be drawn so that more of one party's voters are lumped in a smaller number of districts. The "extra" votes beyond those needed to win the district would be wasted on the House, but effective for the Senate. Picture a few Democrats getting 90% of the votes in their urban districts while more Republicans win closer races elsewhere, while maybe the state overall has more Democrats vote that cycle.

1b. That is essentially the motivation behind gerrymandering, when each state redraws its district boundaries after the decennial census, so that could be driven by the composition of the state legislature several cycles ago.

2. Every House seat is up for election every two-year cycle, but Senators sit for six years and only a third are up for election any given cycle.

2a. Two-thirds of senators will continue to reflect the sentiment of previous cycles.

2b. It just so happens that this cycle, the Democrat party has a disproportionate number of seats to defend -- I put it that way because of retirement and death, not all incumbents run -- and several of those are in states that voted for Trump two cycles (four years) after electing the Democrat senator whose seat is now up for election.

In sum, it's a great big mishmash of chronological and geographical differences in how any given Federal legislator was elected, so inconsistency is normal.

The question I have is exactly how big the attempted fraud vote is going to be. Is it going to be so ridiculously large that it will be obvious? Or are they going to try and fine tune it like they did with Hilary and risk losing some of these races? Trump tweeted they were on the look out, but I doubt anything will come from it. The board of elections in every state is completely aware fraud exists in large numbers but they are too cucked to say, let alone do, much about it.

@26 "to pull straight ticket for the Repukes. I truly loathe them"

Yes to both! I never imagined in my life that I'd vote straight ticket R! Or bother to stand in a line of 60-70 early voters to do so!

I must've missed the memo, however, about lying to the pollsters. Mostly I hang up cause I'm busy, but I've actually talked with three (maybe they're selling my number? LOL!) and provided: 100% R (not happily), support Trump, HATE the American-hating libtards!

One asked what I thought of Stacy Abrahms -- the HORROR running for Gov of GA and I said: "I hope she DIES!" And when the Repubs kept calling asking for $$ support and "just one poll question"; I'd always tell them that I am 100% committed to the DESTRUCTION of the Republican Party: immediately AFTER we destroy the Dems! Alt Right all the way! Actually had a R pollster agree wit me; that was fun!

Blogger Damelon Brinn November 06, 2018 7:41 AM  

The low Democrat turnout in early voting probably indicates that anti-fraud measures and rhetoric are having an effect. Maybe fraud won't be pursued as aggressively as it should be, but any talk about it at all is an improvement. At least it can be fully pursued now that the Consent Decree is gone. If you stuffed ballot boxes in 2016, you just might sit this one out and see how it goes.

Remember when Thomas Wictor pointed out that vote fraud is now being handled by FEDERAL AGENCIES working together, it's NOT a state issue being handled by the locals any more?
Trump started a 'Vote Fraud' panel, everybody screamed about it, he disbanded it.
THEY ALL WENT TO SLEEP.
Like they were supposed to.
While they were napping, guess what happened?
Vote fraud was given to DHS, the FBI & other federal agencies PARTNERING TOGETHER. Those partnered federal agencies have been *quietly* cleaning up/spotting a lot of the vote fraud that went on in 2016. They know what was done, where it was done and who was doing it.
So THIS time, they are LYING IN WAIT FOR THEM.
Understand what happened here: vote fraud is no longer a STATE matter. It's federal. And the feds under Jeff Sessions have been busy.


I do not know if the above is completely true, but if it is, I find it encouraging.

"Credibility"

Blogger Random #57 November 06, 2018 7:44 AM

To quote from memory the final line from Collier and Horowitz's Destructive Generation: Second Thoughts About the Sixties, for the Left, there are no yesterdays, only tomorrows. At best this will wake up more normies, but for the MSM's audience, albeit shrinking in so many ways, I doubt they'll suffer much from just this misprediction, just like as happened in 2016. In this domain, we seldom get the "decisive battle" we deep down hope for.

The Australian conservative media (owned by Rupert Murdoch) is for some reason running the lying US media line that Trump is about to get a very stiff rebuke.

I've written about stuff like this before. But a neighbor down my street who is a Leftist, who in 2016 plaster Hillary an Her Turn and She Persisted signs all over her property, made conversation with me two days ago. And of course she brought up the election.

So, I decided to give both barrels. I usually don't with neighbors and the like. But I did this time.

I told her after that I was already pro-Trump, having voted for him in '16. But if I hadn't been, the Kavanaugh Travesty would have put me over. It was disgusting and from here on out, I would never vote for anyone who allowed that to happen or would support such a thing. Not ever. I was pretty angry.

And then I got the shock I was not expecting. Her response:

"I know what you mean."

Whoa. She didn't tell me which way she was voting but to see someone like her say such a thing? She'll probably hold her nose and vote Dem. But they even made her pause.

I don't think the leftists truly grasp the extant of their overreach.

As Cerno pointed out, the Google Search results point heavily to a strong GOP showing. Not that Early Voting isn't running ahead of 2016, as a %, and, in fact, is running ahead in a few places by raw amounts.

It's really elections in 50 different States, each with various trends for various reasons. The places where Dem EV was up slightly are almost all in States without State-wide elections. Pretty much everything is looking like a better cycle for the GOP than 2016, but, given redistricting & local effects, a Net Loss of House Seats is still likely. I've been sitting at 7-12 range for a while, but it's hard to unskew such small amounts of data.

Interesting parts about the Senate, though, is that the weather is bad enough to knock off some key incumbents. "Bad Enough" is the key. It skims off the more lightly attached that bought that the incumbent was a shoe-in, but not bad enough to actually depress normal turnout for the challenger. If Menendez goes down to Hugins in NJ, that's exactly the reason they'll use. (It won't necessarily be wrong, but they'll use it.)

Same is true in the Upper Midwest. Pretty rough weather the locals are used to, but the MSM's lying cuts both ways. Slightly depressed turnout, in total, normally bodes ill for the incumbents.

The other trend that could cost the Left a few seats is some serious 3rd Party Candidates. Watch out for DWS' seat. It's a 3-way race that apparently involves a blood feud in the local Democratic party. If FL goes as well as it's looking from the early voting, that could be the cherry on the top for the day.

Don't know if anybody else mentioned this, but the final Rasmussen Generic ballot has Rs up by 1%, 46 to 45, with a 2% margin of error.

If it plays out like this it would be utterly devastating to the Ds, because the Ds are clustered in their city enclaves. (Very lopsided D wins in the cities but closer R wins in the burbs equals more R wins overall even with more votes for Ds overall.)
Estimates are Ds needing a +5% lead in the generic ballot to win the House. Rs also have a small lead with non-affiliated voters.

If this is relatively close to being accurate, the Ds are going to get clobbered today.

If that happens it's extremely rare. The two parties have absolutely nothing in common these days.

One of the more ignorant remarks I've read. Both squads of the single ruling party support things like Obamacare, globalism, abortion, magic-dirt theory, and endless wars around the world on behalf of those who pull their strings. The chief difference between the Harlem Globetrotters (D's) and the Washington Generals (R's) is that the "con" team (Generals) lies about what they claim to support all the time, while the other team (Globetrotters) openly celebrates the Neo-Marxist globopedobear agenda. One of the more persistent fantasies believed by drooling idiots is that the D-jerseys (who has all the mega-rich supporting it) are the party of the "little guy" while the R-jerseys are the party of "big business". There's really only a single party - the bank party.

Does it even make sense to vote for a red senator and then a blue representative? Is that a common thing in the US?

If by red/blue you refer to the D-jerseys and the R-jerseys less so now than in years past. There are even recently extremely rare cases at the state level where the D-jersey running for office actually opposes something like gun control and globalism, but most of these (usually older blue-collar whites) are out of the picture by now as billionaire owners of the Globetrotters have pretty much purged the party at the national level (US house, Senators) of any but hard-core Bolsheviks (who support open-borders, globalism, debt-racketeering and endless wars for Israel). Trump is hated by both nominal political parties because of what he has said he wants to do. The only reason to vote R-jesey is in the (probably vain) hope that Trump will force them to actually do something other than enact more tax breaks for the D-jersey mega-donors.

Time to watch for is probably 2-3 pm EST. They'll know by then how bad the early turnout is among the under 50 crowd. The "Blue Collapse" scenario rests on a collapse in lightly attached voting. That is, the highest margin Dem voting blocs are all showing a pretty heavy drop off relative to other groups. Mostly because the most energized voters for the Dems already vote at a high rate, thus there isn't any new voters to be gained from them.

Yeah, I'm the one that posted the tweat by (((Ezra Klein))) about the 'House popular vote.' I believe that will be their narrative when they lose. But even that might not be plausible if the Rasmussen poll is correct.

I'd note that the Rasmussen tracking poll correctly predicted the outcome of the 2016 presidential popular vote (+2% HRC) and was the only major poll to do so.

Still, I think it's much more valuable to head it off than to prosecute them afterwards, because Americans are so exhausted after an election that almost no one wants to litigate and overturn one. Trump's tweets about how the feds are watching and taking it seriously should be helping with that.

I did my part to stick it to the Dems, although where I live they will outnumber me 200:1 or so. Once again the public schools have had no class for the past two days, this is routine for election day. They teachers and administrators get paid time off to go help with Get-Out-The-Vote (GOTV) efforts for the Democrats and the unions, on our dime of course. That always, always pisses me off big-time. As if they needed it around here! Nothing can block a Democrat when there's an opportunity for fraud and graft.

The lovers and admirers of fraud and graft came out in numbers, eager to practice their Spanish with the foreigner handling Voter-ID. So at least we have Voter-ID, but of course they put it into the hands of a foreigner, delighting the spawn of Satan to no end.

We had two measures to amend the state constitution for piddly stuff. We always have these, every single time. It's enough to shake one's faith in constitutions, frankly. Those who wrote it intended to limit the state government's power and constrain it, this has only created a situation where activists, lovers and admirers of fraud and graft, and the like have made it a routine and mundane thing to keep constantly amending it. Just keep changing the rules under everyone's feet, no problem! The citizens have no idea what they're voting for on these things anyways, just put language in there about puppies an children!

Voted abut an hour ago, central PA red area. Steady stream of voters in a heavy rain. Lines moved briskly. Total was already near 700 when I got signed in, similar numbers to 2016. I imagine the opening deluge was the same as 2016.

RT - Bob Casey Jr. had to air a defensive 'attack' ad, trying to counter a Barletta ad accusing Casey of politicizing Lou's son and the boy's illness. The Barletta ad used a devastating piece of rhetoric, that Casey Sr. (God rest his soul) would be highly disappointed with junior. Junior's response ad was on the lines of 'not true, he's the real medical care cutter!' That's probably worth several points among those who remember Casey Sr. being thrown out of his own party, the one that Junior clings to. Sounded like a panic response, airing that with five days to go.

@92 To be fair the congressional map was hugely gerrymandered in favor of Republicans, they held well almost 2/3rds of the districts despite in probably no case getting any more than a slight lead in votes. The Democrat votes in Pittsburgh and Philly are always massive but the cities themselves only get a few districts and with rural voters being large portions of the outer districts.

Something was going to have to change but they went the opposite direction since they control the entire Supreme Court, because the state Republican party is completely disorganized and can only do good if the national party is on the ball and driving turnout high nationwide like in 2010 and 2014.

The stock and standard campaign slogan of Republican candidates for public office, even before Y2K, has always been....

"We are not as bad as the other side."

Control of the House....we got Paul Ryan. Control of the Senate....we got Mitch McConnell.

Very little has actually changed because much of the Republican party is Liberal Ripon Society, Country Club NeoCons and RINOs. It is nothing less than absurd to claim that re-electing NeverTrumpers is somehow a mandate for Donald Trump!

I am less anxious about control of the Senate and control of the House than the Media seems to be. Control of Congress does not mean control of the government. I see very little difference between fat Omnibus spending bills passed by the "Republican" Congress and those passed by the "Democrat" Congress. Legislation? What legislation? Debt ceiling? Immigration? Tell me all about it.

The Truth of the matter is...there is no Republican Majority in Congress. There is a very strong veto-proof Liberal Majority. This majority consists of the Liberal Democrats plus all the Liberal Republicans and they vote together. That is why we all need to be less anxious about the imaginary Republican Majorities in Congress.

My campaign slogan for 2018 is...
VOTE ANYWAY!
Show up and vote, in spite of everything else. Show the bastards you are still watching and still interested in what they are doing in Washington.

@90 @92

Being a native PA resident, I found it telling that the press from my hometown area was actually throwing their endorsements behind Wagner and Barletta, especially given the fact that they were represented by Jack Murtha for almost 30+ years.

And agree on the elder Casey disowning Bob Jr. based on his antics. Hell, the fact that he's in lockstep with the national platform was enough to be disowned. The fact that Sr.'s Lt. Gov. Marc Singel adopted said platform in 1994 for his Senate run (that eventually was won by Rick Santorum) was enough for Sr. to sit on his hands and not lend ANY sort of support. That's how much he was pissed off by the rejection of the pro-life group within the Democrats in 1992.

Then again, these are the same idiots that booed the Almighty, so what does that tell you?

When I arrived at the polling station this morning I learned my status was 'inactive' and thus ineligible to vote. Fortunately my name remained in the database and my status was restored to 'active.' Even more fortunately, once dead I will be resurrected at least three separate times and so there is that.

My hope is that with the House in Democrat hands that Trump no longer needs to pander to people like Ryan.

If Republicans keep the House, they'll be far more subservient to Trump. Firstly, many RINOs have been primaried and replaced by Trumpists. Secondly, the lack of cooperation has been due to lack of faith in Trumpism. If Republicans see that Trumpism actually helps their election chances, they'll bend the knee. Some like Lindsay Graham already have.

Another more important example is Kevin McCarthy, who is probably going to be Speaker if Republicans keep the House. Look at how hardcore Trumpist he's become, including on immigration. That is the future if Republicans win.

If Democrats win the House, they'll bury the Trump administration in investigations and bankrupt every Republican they can.

Get your family and a couple of friends organized. Anytime in the primaries there is a blank spot where no one is running, you all write in the same name (yours). You'll pick up voters in the general just by having the party name against someone who would otherwise be unopposed.

If you win, the job is clearly one no one else thought was worth it. Do it half-assed part-time, and it'll be better than what anyone else was going to do. You may even get paid for it, and maybe turn that into a new career actually helping fix the system and push back against the local cucks.

Only problem is I have no idea who could possibly fill that role ATM. But I'm sure he's out there somewhere.

We cannot think this way. This is Neocon speak. Playing nice for the left gets us NOTHING. They called W a NAZI! W! A Neocon Cuck gets labeled a Nazi and stupid. Meanwhile, Biden is given a free pass.

The more verbose and offensive he is, the better. GOP voters don't care. Trump can still bring gigantic crowds out to a rally! There has never been anything like Donal Trump in my lifetime. Ron Paul is about the closest thing, but he had very little appeal outside of the lolbertarians.

It's funny because I wish Trump was what the media makes him out to be. Obama had corporations giving money to left wing causes in lieu of fines! Sicked the IRS on his enemies! Used the DOJ as a weapon! Invited anti-white racists into the WH on a weekly basis!

I voted this morning here in OH, and there was a D running unopposed for a State Rep seat on the ballot. After the attempted lynching of Kavanaugh, I swore I wouldn't vote for a single D in this election (even though some of the Rs are truly "repugnicans" and a couple of the Ds are decent people that my wife and/or I know personally), so I left it blank (we use paper ballots in Ohio, and you have to fill in the rectangle next to your choice with black or blue ink).

When I put my ballot in one of the machines they use to collect them, it was spit back out with the warning that the ballot was incomplete (because there was no vote registered in that race). I had to get a poll worker to push a button that allowed me to submit the ballot incomplete.

I wonder how many people who initially left that box empty just took their ballot back to their table and filled it in so the machine would accept it? (I know it doesn't make any real difference - she's going to get that seat either way - but it's the principle of the thing.) The poll worker said that this was a new "feature" of the new ballot-collection machines that were installed just before this election, and that a lot of people were confused by it (so - since this was the only race on the ballot where there was only one candidate - I guess that I wasn't the only one who didn't want to give a vote to a D).

I'm in deep red Alabama. When I went out this morning I drove past a couple very busy polling places. I figured I'd just wait and vote this afternoon when it would (presumably) be less busy. Now I hear the lines are longer than they were at noon.

I'm pretty sure it wasn't this busy when I voted for Trump in 16. If this is happening across the country then the D's have no hope whatsoever.

I'm pretty sure the 16 turnout wasn't anything like this high.

People forget that while the GOP held nominal control of both houses of Congress, their actual control was only the House. If you can muster a majority with 10% defections, you've got real control and can get your agenda through. But if you have to beg and cajole every member of your caucus, it gets MUCH harder.

Ron Paul was a good candidate, though weak on immigration...which is normal for Libertarians. (No, they do not defend national borders from invasion.) Maybe you do not remember Ross Perot, another multi-billionaire who jumped into politics in time for the 1992 elections. (His main achievement was making it possible for Bill Clinton to get elected.)

I also wish that Donald Trump was anywhere nearly as right-wing as the Leftist Media make him out to be. They did the same thing to Ronald Reagan, painting him with the right-wing tar brush. The truth is that Trump and Reagan are centrists bedeviled with NeoCon administrations. Anyone to the right of Chairman Mao is right-wing to the Leftists in the Media.

"Chicago played its customary post-Halloween trick to sweep deplorables from the rolls or at least discourage us today. A month ago my voter status was 'active' and the election board directed a letter requesting I serve as election judge. Two weeks thence I was still listed as active.

When I arrived at the polling station this morning I learned my status was 'inactive' and thus ineligible to vote. Fortunately my name remained in the database and my status was restored to 'active.' Even more fortunately, once dead I will be resurrected at least three separate times and so there is that."

Report it to the feds. Make whoever pull this stunt pay with time in federal PMITA prison.

Seeing some reports of ballots being rejected in CA because of mismatched signatures.

I think you can check if your ballot has been processed etc.

Voted at 4:00 at Orlando precinct that is normally split. I saw only older folks and there was no long wait but the polling place was busy. Steady type busy according to workers there.

I voted against Clinton two years ago and against the crazy black Dem running for Florida governor this time. He is a horror.

@140- A "tiny, well organized and disruptive minority?" Sounds like a conspiracy theory.

Of whom is this "disruptive minority" composed, Jordy? Is that a "dog whistle" for Mormons, or what?

It's cool to define "carpetbagger" by behavior. Come down here and start telling us how we "should be doing things," especially when "doing" is NE-Liberal style, the derisive use of the term fits.

Act like ya got some sense and we can live with the accent. I know some ex-New Yorkers that are not just right-of-center, but pretty far right. It can happen.

What I want to happen today is about as useless as fantasizing about how I would spend the lottery every time I buy a lottery ticket. But, what I hope is that 75M republicans will vote around the country. That should win it for us. I would give me great joy to see the MSM be carted off on stretchers to emergency safe rooms set up all over the left and right coasts. The wailing and gnashing will be a site to see one more time!

Have you ever met a fag who wasn't absolutely OBSESSED with APPEARANCES, to the point of being deceptive -- how, no matter what the task or whatever, putting in the best appearances at all time is their highest value, even if it gets in the way of more important things.... just like a lot women, in fact.
