How are they going to win swing states?

Post by Tommy Tar » Sat Jul 13, 2019 10:29 am

The democrats need to win states. More votes from Calif, NY and Ill will not give them the WH. The democrats are flying to the left to win their primary and at the same time the rust belt has jobs again. So tell me how are the democrats going to win Ohio, NC, WS, Fl, GA and Penn?

Good question. I think only Warren and Buttigieg have been talking to them. But depending on the outcome of the Obamacare suit, all bets could be off. Probably an awful lot of voters in those states who get Medicaid because of it.

So does trump.

Really? Are you suggesting the rust belt has jobs again because of trump? What are you talking about?

Well, there's polls that suggest voters in OH, WI, and PA aren't exactly happy with trump this time around. No idea about FL, GA or NC.

Of course there's over a year to go so I have confidence trump will convince more voters to vote for a Democrat before polling day.

Not to mention the mass deportations trump has promised will start this weekend...I think that might be rather unhelpful to his reelection bid.

Buttigieg....
Poll numbers with blacks is 0%. Blacks will not vote for a homosexual.

Probably not in any large numbers. Probably the same with Hispanics.

You forget anger, resentment, fear and "they're (or 'there') criminals who violated our sovereignty." Mass deportations are a plus to that crowd.

Yeah, that's a problem alright. If I were Buttigieg, I'd try to get on Oprah. :D

I get that, but I'm counting on our federal Government to totally screw up the deportations in a big way, and I don't think they'll make anyone happy.

I question the idea that a true Centrist/Moderate would only react to movement from the left and not the right.

It's a matter of flipping three counties--one county in Wisconsin, one in Ohio, and one in Pennsylvania.
