The fact that it's this close shows something.
I dunno what, but it shows something. North Carolina's been red since '63, yet the Republican's only ahead by 2.7 percent (~10PM EST).
I think it'll swing red, but this is somewhat unsettling news for the Republicans.
Personally I think it just means that Democrats have the more activated base. I wouldn't take this as a barometer of a general election when the presidency is involved.

The pundits I heard today read the tea leaves on this as "if the dem wins it's reasonable, the gop guy was some last-minute rando, but if the dems lose it says a lot if basic name recognition isn't enough to help you in mildly friendly territory"

Since @Dr W has had TDS since day one, I think he's a little invested on whatever he wants things to be :story:.

I think its sign the road forward is gonna be hard for the orange boomer. Most people barely care about elections when they come around.
That's not how elections work in current year or any year with a celebrity candidate.
If this were Biden vs Neocon staple, I'd agree with you, but this isn't the case right now.

Everyone who hates SJWs and progtard bullshit hates them even more now than they did back in 2016 because the Democrat party has gone full "woke" re.tard and are acting on the national stage like they've learned literally nothing. I don't think that's going to hurt Trump's chances.

Not neccessarily.

He kinda has the advantage. Tramp can take pretty much the whole south and midwest (except for maybe Minnesota, Colorado, New Mexico, or Wisconsin; I think those are toss-ups), while Dems only have the very western states and the northeastern states guarenteed so far. Now I think it's kind of not in his favor for him to do rallies only in the states with the most Tramp fans, but I guess he's just going to where he knows he's guarenteed.

Typical MSM/D backtrack - "The fact dems won convincingly tonight proves that Drumpf can't win in 2020! Wait, what's that?"

"Er, the fact that the dems eked out the win proves that Drumpf can't win in 2020! Wait, what's that now?"

"Er, the fact republicans won, but NOT in a landslide, proves Drumpf can't win in 2020!"

In a first-pass winner-takes-all, the margins mean nothing if you DID NOT WIN.

Not really. If Biden gets the nom, a lot of dems are just going to be sickened by all the stuff he's doing with children. Creepy Uncle Joe won't win against Trump. The Media keeps propping his geriatric pederast ass up as the answer to Trump but he would lose in the general election against him. Basically all the democrats are pretty much shooting themselves in the foot. My family, who are hardcore democrats, couldn't watch the debates because they were getting pissed at them for going to hard left. I think this election will actually be easier for Trump because the dems are going too crazy left.

Yeah this isn't just "oh hey the GOP won".
This was as far as I understand where in a mixed state they got caught red-handed up to shit, had to redo the election after the fact with some random literal who they grabbed off the shelf vs the dem who had been running nostop, and still won.
That's not a good omen for the dems if that's how this went.

So the dems can't even win when they outspend 3 to 1.
And why spend all that money on some random seat that doesn't matter when they already control the house?
They spent big bux to get some some bluewave PR and failed. Again.
They are still talking about Bato v Rato that they lost like it was some big victory. THEY LOST. :pickle:

I'm not denying that Trump has support or won't win but when hes barely winning these Republican strongholds, getting BTFO'd in midterm, alienating people with stuff like "King of Israel" and at most building 1/2th of the wall he promised.
I run the democratic debate threads, I know how big of a disaster the dems are. I pay attention to both Trump and Dems, I just just try to have some optimism.

Well every president has been reelected since Jimmy Carter, it's always expected for the president to have a dominant hand. He could be going up against some potentially competent debater like Sanders.
I would be pretty surprised if he lost, but that doesn't mean this isn't an even bigger struggle then 2016.

I have no faith in Biden and would never unironically support him. I want him to see him struggle in the debates more. I believe Bernie or Warren would be more likely, Bernie preferred.
Bernie was able to get success in 2016 if largely with younger people. Again, Trump will win but anybody saying this is going to be easy isn't watching close enough.

It's a deeply red district with a loser dem candidate, if dems won that'd be a shock. They almost did, less then 2% votes apart.

Well every president has been reelected since Jimmy Carter,
Bush Sr was a one-term.

As for the other stuff like I said that's as far as I understand the circumstances, but if you can't win after the other guys get caught red-handed doing shit and have to run some asshole and you can't manage to get your shit together with a second chance you got some real problems. Like at this point I think that crazy (alleged) pedo guy could have a reasonable chance.

Yeah but he didn't run for reelection, Carter did.

Do you mean Roy Moore?

I think both parties are on a trajectory towards destruction.
