    basically look at where non college educated whites live in large numbers. also look at states that are losing their college graduates. low immigration rates. etc.

    Minnesota has stayed a couple points bluer than Wisconsin because it's very well educated. Michigan iirc is a bit more educated and diverse than Ohio.

    Ohio just has looooaaaddddsssss of idiot whites.

    This checks out when you consider the urban sprawl over the last two decades in places like Atlanta, DFW, Houston, San Antonio, Austin, Charlotte and even Phoenix (though I’m not as hip to the demographics of Arizona).

    Those cities are full of transplants.

    i'm sure there is some clever literary reference that explains the comedy of the people who are voting for biden also being the ones who know the most about his problems

    like when he bragged about putting programs like social security on the table for cuts to appease his republican colleagues in the senate

    I enjoyed this anecdote:

    Duckworth participated in the 2016 Chris Murphy gun control filibuster. During the sit-in, Duckworth hid her mobile phone in her prosthetic leg to avoid it being taken away from her since taking pictures and recording on the House floor is against policy.

    Haha whoops, looks like Comrade Ron Johnson will forge ahead despite being warned he is aiding Russia.

    [​IMG]

    In a Dec. 5 meeting, Senate Intelligence Committee Chairman Richard Burr (R-N.C.) told the leaders of the Senate Homeland Security and Finance committees — Ron Johnson of Wisconsin and Chuck Grassley of Iowa, respectively — that their probe targeting Biden could aid Russian efforts to sow chaos and distrust in the U.S. political system, according to two congressional sources familiar with the meeting.

    There was a fundamental realignment in the 90’s. The West Coast used to have a very competitive Republican Party.

    Bob Packwood (R OR) led the opposition to Clinton’s health care in 93. Oregon had two R senators, Hatfield was the other. California’s Pete Wilson led the charge on the anti-immigrant Prop 187 in 1994 and won. Washington had Slade Gordon (R) in the 90’s.

    Since Prop 187, I think Schwartzenneger is the only R to win a statewide race in California. Oregon and Washington are firmly blue.

    Oregon had a Republican senator up until 2008, which seems bizarre in hindsight

    Then we elected Jeff The Gawd Merkley

    Merkley apparently still lives in a part of Portland that the type of person who goes to Harvard and ends up as a U.S Senator typically cant wait to leave (David Douglas school district). I knocked on doors for him in 2008. Good guy.

    Ohio has trended red because SE Ohio has mirrored the same trends as the rest of Appalachian SW PA, WV, and eastern KY. It used to be very blue, but now is very red.

    Ohio also has very uneven population trends. The anchor of that red flip in SE Ohio is the Steubenville-Wheeling Metro. From 1980-2000, it was dead last among all US statistical metro areas in population loss. Its literally dying. Some of those counties have the oldest average populace in the country.

    It’s only a 5 point swing, but flipping those blue votes to red has mattered.

    In contrast, Columbus experienced sunbelt-type growth from 1980-2000. SW Ohio/Cincinnati also grew more modestly.

    Columbus and Cincinnati historically were very red. In the last three cycles, they are trending very blue.

    Watch what happens in Franklin and Hamilton counties in 2020.
