Anyone who thinks that supporting the troops means supporting pointless wars, or that bombing villages somehow "teaches them a lesson" is not a deep thinker. When you encounter people that reflexively support wars against places and people that they know absolutely nothing about, you should be aware that you are dealing with someone who is both ignorant and angry.
It's like something from Joseph Heller's Catch-22.
Facts no longer matter.
Bernie is winning/has been winning in every single poll against Trump for at least a month.
Yet the national news media is bending over backwards to convince you that the Sanders campaign is kaput/washed-up/expired.
Back in January and February the news media took this straw poll as serious news.
Then suddenly it stopped being news.
Coincidentally, Bernie started dominating those straw polls at the very same time.
Relax. I am linking HotAir and their article on the Mind Giants at ToP and their preferences
If it's Dave Weigel you know it has to be right...
Five weeks ago the Democrats had an enormous 13-point advantage over the Republicans in RealClearPolitics’ average of polling. If the midterm elections happened then it would have flipped both houses of Congress.
We don't usually turn to Nashville based evangelical firm LifeWay Research for good news of any sort.
But LifeWay has surveyed 1000 Americans and found that nearly 60% do not believe that it is morally wrong for someone to identify with a gender different than the one usually associated with the one assigned at birth. And the majority do not believe that it is morally wrong to change one's body to match one's gender identity by taking hormones or having surgery.
A majority of Americans reject the view of a creator giving them a gender that shouldn’t be changed.
--Scott McConnell, LifeWay Executive Director
Hillary is fighting a two-front war, something which no army would ever choose to do if it had the choice. But HRC does not have a choice. This is hurting her, and I predict, it will hurt her badly--even mortally in the political sense.
Trump 45, Clinton 42
Sanders 46, Trump 42
No one cares at TOS, but this is the first time a real poll (ie not one of the internet ones) shows Trump actually ahead. There are reasons to be suspicious of it (they have the electorate as GOP +1, it almost certainly will be better than Dem +4).
The likely Democratic voters are split very much along age, Sanders leads 83-12 in the 18-29 demo, but trails 31-63 in the over 60+ demo.
Sanders trails with non-white voters, 42-58, but nonetheless leads Milwaukee City/County by 49-45. He leads the "Madison Media Market" 52-42, but his greatest regional lead is in the north and west of the state (much of which is rural): 54-42.
