Re: Can Beto O’Rourke really beat Ted Cruz?

My ignore list of politicians just got bigger, that's all. I'll probably wear out my mute button, but new cable remotes are free. The Dems in the House will cut their own throats in 2020 with endless investigations and impeachment attempts. Nothing will get done in the next two years, but what else in new.

Fox News projects Dems take the house. Fox also says only 7% of the vote is in in Texas. Where'd you get 66% TAM?

It looks like the only big blue area that is missing is Harris county. We'll see if the bigger blobs of red will make up for it.
Hopefully the red blobs of Midland- Odessa, Abilene, and other rural red blobs,
etc. will counter the blue blobs of Harris County.

But back to Beto vs. Cruz. Nothing gets done in congress unless there is a majority. Majorities are not gained by individuals from various parties voting on issues. Divided gov't doesn't work IMHO. All the votes for Perot did nothing but elect Clinton. It may not be what democracy is supposed to be, but majorities work, and majorities are not gained by cherry picking issues that suit an individual, or state. It takes 60 votes in the Senate to pass anything. How do you get 60 votes unless a majority party is in control. The Dems stay glued together as a bloc, so how will a divided rest of the senate block anything they try to do. Look at Europe's past and present and all the divided gov'ts struggling to form majorities. Nothing gets done, and all they do is fight to no avail. I'm tired of voters who vote for what's best for them, rather than what's best for the country. I'm dropping my AARP membership because I'm tired of them telling me how I should vote for individuals solely because of their stance on Medicare and Social Security. Yes, I need those programs, but my country comes first!

Well my hard landing, not on purpose either, only resulted in compression fractures of my spine, so I maintained flight status. But now at 76 I'm paying the price. Oh for the good old days :biggrinjester:

Thanks I will be out for awhile update if you can 1st air cav here also, UH! GS pilot Viet Nam
We traded our Charlie model guns for Cobras when I got there, and occupied the old 1st Cav base at Evans north of Hue. My hooch was next to the ammo dump that got rocketed in the 1st Cav days and was just a huge crater. Did you fly Charlies?

To stay on topic, when we vote this week, if we are approached by Beto supporters, just like the Obama supporters in the past, we will quickly so them away with a, "Sorry, we're not ignorant."

Re: Can Beto O’Rourke really beat Ted Cruz?

I opened 4 unrelated videos on YouTube this morning, and all 4 opened with Beto ads.

Is this part of the same group of polls that told us Trump would lose 2 years ago?
Yes it is, and they blew it big time in 2016.
