Yeah, if it was strictly policy, I would've probably voted Trump again.
Never been a single issue voter, but I could be convinced if someone proposes abolishing the supreme court
I cannot fathom thinking Trump was good on policy.
An objectively stupid person who had no serious ideas on ideology/policy.
What trump policies do you like
Two former Republicans saying fetterman not a good national candidate but let's put up roy Cooper should tell you a lot
Look at all the good stuff his judges are doing for real Americans though
I felt safer with a purse designer and Jared Kushner determining foreign policy
This is a guy who knew so little about the world that he thought the Balkans and the Baltics were the same place. But man those policy chops.
I wasn't referring to his policies specifically, rather I tend to lean Republican on most political views.
is this saying you're a social conservative
im so lost
We all are
no cooper slander
Pete… to own the libs.
pete is the preferred candidate of libs everywhere tho
Yeah, I think it's only a matter of time until he gets further milkshake-ducked.
Reminder that this person endorsed and campaigns for him.
I do kind of love this exercise, because we're all picking nits over all these wildly-qualified candidates while the GOP is going to nominate a human twitter feed, win the right three states, and get the presidency.
Fetterman probably going to win a highly nationally representative state in a horrible environment.
Very silly to overlook the giant king especially on silly grounds.
I don't really care. Pulling a gun on someone is pretty bad, regardless of the ultimate consequences.
Either way, I'm naturally very skeptical of the "outsider" role.
But using the framing of his opponents on the right and ignoring context is an interesting play.
Can’t wait for those small town mayor hot takes.
I’m here for prez John and first queen Gisele
I mean...any middle+ class, white, male that votes against Trump(or any Republican) is technically going against his personal best interest. In an Ayn Rand sense of things.
Genuinely, the leading sentiment of every single R voter, be they "conservatives", hard line Rs, or full blown Qs, is "fuck literally everyone but myself".
And then he'll just flip to R
The spin that the guy is currently incarcerated for kidnapping might play.
What’s contextually worse with black voters, firing a black police chief or pulling a gun on a black citizen?
In fairness, you're ignoring a little context, too. The jogger said that Fetterman "lied about everything" in the interaction, but said that it shouldn't disqualify him from the Senate. That was also in a letter from prison, so I don't know how much actual work he's doing on the campaign.
Biden can't get Manchin to play ball?
Look, if a guy isn't willing to blackmail someone's family to get shit done, he's not my POTUS.
Incumbents are getting hammered across Europe and Latin America. It’s part of having a democracy. When the economy sucks, or purchasing power of the electorate decreases, those conditions are hung around the neck of the incumbent whether that admin caused them or not.
This is a positive in the average Republican's eyes.
Before you even get into anything else, why would you want someone over 80 years old to run for president?
i turn 35 in a few months
soooooooo you catchin what i'm throwin out there?
I'll get to scrubbing your LoL and Dota chat logs now.
well i'd prob lock up about 30-40% of the GOP vote if we leak those chat logs
not sure any voter is voting on this but fetterman has won many races since his incident
I can't tell directionally which way you're arguing
I did not know this.
Dems refuse to learn the right lesson from fetterman and pritzker which is that america loves big boys and they should run as many enormous candidates as possible.
I'm not arguing in any direction. I'm saying that you, too, are ignoring (or inventing) context about the incident.
I don't think it hurts his ability to be elected; I'm still on the devine thread that it's decent evidence that he's probably not a great person.
Dems have one move and it's going more centrist and establishment. It's their only answer to any situation. So whoever gets the nom will be that. It will be an absolute bloodbath. Best case scenario the GOP ruins the country for enough people that we can get some legitimate momentum from the left to take over the party in like a decade. Just gotta hope democracy isn't too far gone by then which feels unlikely
I think using it as a veto on a lifetime of public service is a little silly.
It's probably going to be an electoral college bloodbath regardless of who they run. The GOP candidate will probably still lose the popular vote.
Agreed. I haven't. I'm admittedly skeptical of him, though, as I've explained several times before.
Fetlife for Fett
Just the mere fact that he had a shit load of stuff tossed out in court because of how poorly it was constructed should tell you he is not good on policy. Not tossed out on the merits or legality of the policy, but the fact it was written by morons.
I meant bloodbath in down ballot stuff too but you're probably right
Nominating someone with a regional bias his direction plus oversized power among rural whites is a great way to swing that electoral bias back to dems like it was in 12
