These people vote...probably for donks...

...it's why I'm surprised Bernie's free shit didn't appeal to more folks on Super Tuesday. They can't comprehend these types of costs on a budget/taxes.
Do you know who votes for Donks? A solid majority of the most educated people in the population. Post graduate education people voted by 58% to 37% for Clinton over Trump in 2016 and by 65% to 34% for Democrats over Republicans in the 2018 House elections.

The "people who vote for Democrats are stupid" thing just doesn't work. The cognitive elite in this country vote Democrat. I'm using education as a proxy for IQ. But I am confident that if only, say, the top 15% of the intelligence distribution in this country could vote the Republicans would be completely screwed. The Democrats would chronically control both houses of Congress by overwhelming majorities as well as the Presidency.

Mark -

Link to how Russian meddling in 2016 was successful in terms of swaying votes away from Trump to Clinton?

I’ve been keeping an eye out for research or credible articles on that very subject since 2016 and haven’t seen anything

All I have seen up until now is that nobody knows or can measure Russian success in that context - only that historically the opposite has been true

Eric - if you have paid attention you’d know that I’ve said countless times that proof of such is impossible. It’s impossible to measure. I said they duped Americans. Russian trolls gave false news/info which was spread.

*Erik

I only named you since my quote function works about half the time since the reset

You did say "duped Americans" - but duped them into doing what? Posting stupid shit on Facebooks?

The IC and the administration have acknowledged that the Russians interfered in the last election, have been doing so in previous elections, and will do so for the foreseeable future. But they "duped Americans" is not exactly the metric those entities have used when acknowledging Russian interference.

Wasn't sure if this belongs here, or in jellybellys Russia hoax thread, meh, I'll put it here:
:lol: :lol: :lol:
And BTW it wasn't some random Russian trolls. Per the Mueller report it was Russian government entities including a Russian intelligence service. It was a sophisticated effort. Again: In spite of Trump's exaggerations 2016 was an extremely close election. The margins were very thin. VERY possible that even a small degree of suppression would make a difference.
we have an entire agency that changes proples governments for them. :coffee:

I don't know if it's true but someone said that the amount of money Bloomberg spent on his Quixotic campaign is essentially the interest on his principle investments.

Former Vice President Joe Biden got into a heated and profanity-laced argument with an autoworker Tuesday while touring a factory in Detroit, after the individual accused the Democratic presidential candidate of trying to take away his Second Amendment rights.

"You’re full of sh-- ... I support the Second Amendment," Biden shot back, stressing he's not going to take guns away.

The worker then told Biden, "You're working for me, man," and told Biden that he saw an online video supporting his claim that Biden is hostile to the Second Amendment.
OOH THE HORROR! The hypocrisy from Fox is incredible. I don't recall them pearl clutching when Trump has said a naughty, dirty, filthy word. Or made fun of a handicapped person. Or POWs. Or mocked a dead man. :roll:

There is no hypocrisy when only one "news" outlet is reporting this.

The other 20 are busy explaining to their stupid readers how it was "a human moment" and its no big deal.
