Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Monday, April 30, 2018

Although nearly two of three young voters polled said they do not like Republican President Donald Trump, their distaste for him does not necessarily extend to all Republicans or translate directly into votes for Democratic congressional candidates. Only 28 percent of those polled expressed overt support for Republicans in the 2018 poll - about the same percentage as two years earlier. But that does not mean the rest will turn out to back Democrats, the survey showed. A growing share of voters between ages 18 and 34 years old said they were undecided, would support a third-party candidate or not vote at all.

There have been a series of actual elections which establish the trend towards Blue. Then there is the Holocaust by resignation of the GOP.

Donald Trump has been personally humiliated in at least one of these events. in a Deep Red State. So...You tell me what it all means.

Every word if this article is couched. The author lauds Republican gains in opinion of how they run an economy, while avoiding the fact they had little direction to go but up. And he praises the 28% support for Rs, while all-but-ignoring the 46% support for Ds.

Weasel words, for those who can't do actual Math.

I always rely on the Sheeplemussen poll.... as a positively accurate reverse barometer.

.
The article poll compares national election year polling in 2016, when young people are traditionally more involved, to an off election year now where mid-term elections usually draw much less interest and votes.

The minor spark of economic activity that might interest some young voters now will wear off when they figure out that no, they aren't going to be Trickled Down on, eithet; that it' just the initial corporate ------ at their yuuge permanent tax cut.

They corps'll get tired of that old gal soon enough, and demand less regulations and even more tax and trade advantages or they'll again keep their hands in their pockets until they get all that they want.

From the article (which I'm certain everyone has read):

"In Manchester, the biggest city in New Hampshire's 1st District, tattoo artist Ashley Matthias, 31, said she has not decided how she will vote but will support anyone who will make her health insurance more affordable."

Of course she would. That's a wholly reasonable position to take. I might quibble with affordable versus high-quality and I'd definitely advocate for single-payer, but her position is reasonable on its face.

If the Republican party wants to take up this mantle (or the mantle of renewable energy, public education, social welfare for the needy) I'll vote Republican. The Republican party was, after all, the party of Lincoln. I'd like to think that I would have voted for him. For better or worse, times change.

If a third party were to emerge which could garner 33% or more of the vote (go check the mind boggling gains that third parties have achieved since 1900) I'd consider that too.

I live in an imperfect world (perhaps you do too). My belief is that all of us must do the best we can within the imperfection. Those who have taken a stand may have the metaphorical moral high-ground, but we all live on this earth...literally.

If someone has a list of politicians who have transcended imperfection; politicians who both support all aspects of a proactive agenda and are electable, please post the names of those candidates.

"And he praises the 28% support for Rs, while all-but-ignoring the 46% support for Ds."

As far as ad hominems go, that's really lame considering how easily it's debunked by reading the article. In what universe can using the descriptor "only" 28% be described as praise? The author didn't ignore the 46%; he mentioned it when he point out the number was down by nine points, while the number for Republcans was steady among Millennials.

Surprised no one here took up the angle of attacking white males, since that aspect was also mentioned in the article.

The Dem's hate is catching up with them.

The GOP is insane and the Democrats have proven themselves completely ineffective/incompetent. I can't say that I'm shocked people tune out from both parties.
Nothing gets fixed in this country without campaign finance reform.

I count myself as a Democrat, because they're less toxic than the Republicans, but Morris is right. By now the Dems should have a message ringing throughout the land that they are capable of something other than pointing out the obvious truth that Trump is a corrupt, narcissistic half-wit. With a few notable exceptions, I'm not hearing it.

Why would a bot need a safe space? Even your attempts at insults are ignorant.

Stop whining about Russia, which you can nothing about, and start putting together programs which will raise the standard of living of average Americans and you political future is guaranteed. In spite of the MSM, which ignores or ridicules Sanders programs, he remains the most popular politician in America. This proves people aren't as stupid as the Republicans and Democrats assume.

How did that work out for those who voted for Obama for the same reason?

"It sounds strange to me to say this about the Republicans, but they're helping with even the small things," Hood said in a phone interview. "They're taking less taxes out of my paycheck. I notice that."

But wait, the other article on this site says that the tax cuts aren't helping the lower income people (I'm assuming he is based on where it says he works). Either way, he works at Dollar General and has noticed less taxes out of his check. Kind of a contradiction there?

Still trying to pull that booger off liberals?

Who needed a safe space to begin with on College campuses?

In a way, after the triumphant elections of Barack Obama, the Democratic Party has lacked anything close to as compelling a follow-up act. Next to the inspiring, intelligent Obama, the up-and-comers look drab.

The Dems can't gain millennial voters without a leading candidate. You need a face for the party and that won't happen until the next presidential election cycle.

Right now, the Face the Dems have to use is Trump. That seems to be working in race after race.

Ds have to stop being the lesser of two evils. Every time we vote for the lesser of two evils both evils get more evil.
