    Re: What has happened to the Democratic party?

    Trump is a republican president, but he is more in the middle. Add in that he make the tough decisions b/c he is the only president aside from Reagan who actually cares about the country as opposed to having power.

    And they were both pretty much outsiders to politics, makes you wonder why "politicians" are even elected.

    California and NY tells you all you need to know about the democrats and their policies. If you can't see what they are about from looking at those two states, you are blind.

    The disrespect shown to the office of the President of The United States during last night's SOTU address by one democrat in particular was deplorable. Irregardless of how she feels about him personally she made an absolute mockery of the office and made herself look even more like a total biotch.

    Since the GOP nominee for President in 2012 has voted to convict President Trump on the impeachment charge of abusing the powers of his office during the Ukraine adventure consider the possibility a legitimate question as well may be what has happened to the Republican Party

    The two party system appears to be intellectually bankrupt at the moment

    If it is Trump versus Bernie I guess I will write in someone else again this November as I did in 2016 when I wrote in John Kasich rather than vote for Trump or Hillary

    I don't like Trump.... never have. I will vote for him again. I dislike the Left more than I dislike Trump. The left is off the hook. They have lost their way and are a non entity in today's America... IMO. I hold conservative values... I can't support anyone other than Trump at this point.

    Re: What has happened to the Democratic party?

    This whole impeachment circus was an embarrassment for the Democratic party. "Star witnesses" were using 2nd and 3rd hand sources/he said she said in their testimony, a whistleblower who was a Democratic donor, all as a backup coup after the manufactured Russian Collusion story failed and an attempt to deflect the corruption of the Bidens. It's like the Democratic Party doesn't know how the legal system works. It's innocent until proven guilty, not innocent only if you agree with me

    The real key is the low turnout in the Dem caucus in Iowa coupled with Trump's highest approval rating ever. Dude is a shoe- in for four more years, and the Dem base isn't energized to get rid of him. Don't need a crystal ball to see where this is headed.

    The fact that their "most electable" candidate who has a shot at winning is probably a 30 something year old mayor also doesn't help.

    Neither is the fact that the Dems can't even run a primary without rigging it to the person they want or causing numerous problems that delay reporting

    Too true! I am astounded that the "best" candidates either party can put forth are a reality show charlatan and the clown car of nonsense.

    So far most of this thread is not reasons why anyone is planning on voting for a specific candidate but rather that they can't bring themselves to vote for an alternative.

    I don't agree with Trump or his policies. But I am far from excited to vote for the retreads and know nothing's the Dems are trotting out.

    His highest approval rating ever being the outlier Gallup poll with the 49% approve/50% disapproval rating? Not exactly beloved.

    The Democrats could fuck up a one car funeral but this is not a Reagan v Mondale or Nixon v McGovern shoo in - most of the country is evenly split between Trump or anyone else the Dems put up and it will come down to the 5% of the voters in the half dozen swing states where votes actually matter that will decide the election

    I hope Bloomberg hangs around since he clearly gets on Trump’s last nerve

    Anywhere over 35 or so is in the "easily re-electable" range, and he's been there for most of his Presidency. You'd be wise to not dismiss this "outlier". You'd also be wise to check my track record at calling this stuff correctly.

    "Trump vs. Generic Dem" means nothing, and the national polls mean nothing. MoJoUW is absolutely correct: The only viable candidate the Dems have that can compete with Trump is Buttigieg, and that would be a tough sell.

    I suppose, for the entertainment value... But Bloomberg is DOA if he somehow wins the nomination, which seems extremely unlikely at this point.

    If true, this would be the biggest landslide since Nixon/ McGovern.
