The Dems are about to receive the second worst shellacking to come their way in November.

-2 ( +8 / -10 )

"Does anyone know who won Iowa?" he asked the crowd. “I don't know.”

That one made me spit out my coffee! Well, the latest update is Mayor Pete has a razor thin edge over Bernie. Looks like Klobuchar isn't going to win it. But the bad news for the Dems is Tulsi Gabbard is definitely not gonna win it.

I watched the new Hampshire rally. Trump is a beast.

Nah, it's pretty clear that Trump will not get elected again after the sham of an impeachement the Republicans are trying to pretend did anything other than prove he is guilty.

-4 ( +4 / -8 )

As offensive and puerile as he can be, some of his achievements are real.  Set against the sorry lot in the Dem primaries he does indeed look like a winner.

He’s a rabble-rouser and a troll and good at it. These qualities are useful to him.

This doesn’t seem to work as well for Democratic candidates. I’m not being snobbish here, but I think intelligence comes into it.

Agreed. Not the most intelligent lot, birds of prey like trump tear them apart.

3 ( +4 / -1 )

Is that Trump looking at his girlfriend in the photo? Lol

-1 ( +3 / -4 )

If you look hard at the picture above you'll see a group of women sitting together holding a banner; "Hookers for Donnie"...

Agreed. Not the most intelligent lot, birds of prey like trump tear them apart.

I’ve often asked Trump supporters here, some clearly not unintelligent, if they’d have chanted ‘lock her up’, ‘build that wall’ or made whooping noises when he mentioned Elizabeth Warren at Trump rallies.

None have answered. I get the feeling they don’t want to answer because answering ‘yes’ would make them look, well, choose you own word.

What do you think?

I wonder of Donnie will make the "Q" hand sign so his supporters can get excited like he did at his last rally...

The 51-year-old woman believed the president had traced the shape of the letter “Q” with his fingers as a covert signal to followers of QAnon, a right-wing, pro-Trump conspiracy theory. She turned to the couple on her right and excitedly asked, “Did you see the ‘Q’?”

“He just did it?” asked Diane Jacobson, 63, of Racine, Wisconsin.

“Was that a ‘Q’?” added Jacobson’s husband, Randy, 64.

“I think it was,” replied their new friend, Chrisy. 

The Jacobsons met Chrisy and her husband, Paul, hours earlier in the line to get into the Jan 14 rally. The couples bonded over their shared interest in QAnon, which centers on the baseless belief that Trump is waging a secret campaign against enemies in the “deep state” and a child sex trafficking ring run by satanic pedophiles and cannibals.

What started as an online obsession for the far-right fringe has grown beyond its origins in a dark corner of the internet. QAnon has been creeping into the mainstream political arena for more than a year. The trend shows no sign of abating as Trump fires up his reelection campaign operation, attracting a loyal audience of conspiracy theorists and other fringe groups to his raucous rallies.

Many followers believe the late John F. Kennedy Jr. is a Trump supporter who faked his death in a 1999 plane crash. Another core belief is that thousands of deep state operatives and top Democrats, including Hillary Clinton and Obama, will be rounded up and sent to Guantanamo Bay during an event called “The Storm.”

Trump has retweeted QAnon-promoting accounts. Followers flock to Trump’s rallies wearing clothes and hats with QAnon symbols and slogans.

So, how many Trumpers here believe in QAnon?

Great rally! better data:

52,559 Tickets

24,732 Voters Identified (41% From NH)

17% Didn’t Vote in 2016

25.4% Democrats

-4 ( +2 / -6 )

@Blacklabel Where did you get the stats on Trump's rally?

-2 ( +1 / -3 )

He's not rattling the Democrats; he's just speaking the truth about them.

The Democrats are a mess right now.

Biden either speaks incoherently or snaps at voters and reporters for asking legitimate questions. And if he is nominated, the whole situation with Ukraine and his son will doom his campaign.

Warren has been caught in lies, including her ridiculous claim of Native American heritage, and several of her black campaign staffers have quit because they felt they were being tokenized.

Sanders and Buttigieg don't stand much of a chance against Trump either. Sanders is too radical and Buttigieg isn't even that popular in his own city and state.

Trump will be re-elected. It won't be a landslide, but it will be convincing.

Brad Parscale Twitter. Amazing we can have data 1 hour later but Dems still don’t know who won Iowa 1 week later.

Strangerland - Nah, it's pretty clear that Trump will not get elected again after the sham of an impeachement the Republicans are trying to pretend did anything other than prove he is guilty.

It was the House Democrats who failed to prove Trump was guilty. Multiple times. It was the Housed Democrats who could have called all of the witnesses in the world, but they chose not to. It was the House Democrats who could have fought for their subpoenas, but chose to avoid a court fight where they would have had to actually prove their case. It was House Democrats who beg Senate Republicans to make a case against Trump. A case that they couldn't manage to do.

Now we see that Democrats, and Hillary-worshippers, are rattled because Trump made an appearance IN THE SAME CITY AS THEIR DEBATE. That is just sad.

You're a registered dem. This means every time you rail against Democrats, you’re railing against yourself. Smooth.

> The Dems are about to receive the second worst shellacking to come their way in November.

You also predicted Donny wouldn’t be the republican nominee, the various IG reports would find problems with the way the FBI handled the Russian investigation, and that Rudy was going to have Mueller handled within a month of Donny having hired Rudy. None of these predictions were correct. ROFL!

-2 ( +1 / -3 )

I just see most Dem candidates dropping out by the end of the month. They can’t continue to come in 3rd-5th over and over and still stay in the race.

Then all that’s left is Bernie and 2 old white billionaires. Bloomberg is already 3rd nationally with 15% right behind a fading Biden for 2nd.

Yeah. Old, white billionaires are the worst, right?

Oh do you prefer I speak on behalf of my registered party? Ok we Democrats are a mess and a total clown show. Bernie is now the face of our party, supported by “the squad”. This is unsustainable.

So much of a mess that I am going to vote for Trump in the general election, as I did in 2016. Better?

You're a registered dem. This means every time you rail against Democrats, you’re railing against yourself. Smooth.

Ummm that’s actually true.

the various IG reports would find problems with the way the FBI handled the Russian investigation,

-1 ( +3 / -4 )

Yes it is the worst. My party of diversity, the Democrats, will have only three old white men, billionaires and millionaires as my only voting choices.

then we will pander to the minorities with the VP pick. further showing that no one of diversity is worthy of a spot unless an old white guy chooses them as VP to get minority votes for himself.

Yeah. Old, white billionaires are the worst, right?

Yeah, cause Donny and Pence represent so much diversity.

Our party the Democrats are the ones claiming “diversity”.

yet Somehow during the voting process totally controlled by us, we eliminate all the candidates of color from legitimate consideration before the first vote even cast in our primary.

So we end up with the same people as republicans do.

Yeah, cause Donny and Pence represent so much diversity.

Tulsi Gabbard had to go on Sean Hannity program and dodge questions the night before the Dem primary. That’s how rigged the Dem primary is against people of color. It is a disgrace.

I voted for Barack Obama twice and all I get is Biden and a mayor telling each other they aren’t Obama.

ummm we know that.

There is no benefit, as I already stated I am voting for the obvious Dem front runner Bernie Sanders. Not like I am voting for the weakest candidate. As Trump said, which one would that even be? They are all weak.

Not like I am voting for the weakest candidate

You are very confusing on this. You keep changing your story.

You said you were voting for Sanders because he is best placed to lose to Trump. Is this no longer the case?

The Democrats don't have a snowball's chance in hell of winning in November.

Trump is on a roll, the economy is doing OK and America always loves a showman.

The only thing that the impeachment attempt served to do was to show America that Nancy Pelosi is almost senile.

She made a complete fool of herself with her mumbling, gurning, paper shuffling and ripping up papers like a child.

That alone has added hundreds of thousands if not millions of votes from undecided voters to the Republican tallies.

The writing is on the wall for the Democrats.

Just like the useless Labour Party in the UK led by that idiot Red Corbo, they are dooming themselves to defeat.

The Democrats don't have a snowball's chance in hell of winning in November.

Actually, I like the snowball's chances a lot better. The Democrats have weak candidates, even weaker than Hillary was.

Trump is on a roll, the economy is doing OK and America always loves a showman.

The economy is doing better than just OK. It's one of the strongest economies America has ever had, and the numbers clearly show that.

It's been particularly good for African-Americans, whose unemployment rates are literally the lowest they've ever been. (This means that if Trump is a "racist," he isn't being a very effective one.)

And Trump has proven himself to be more than just a showman. There are things about him that I don't like and disagree with, but on the whole he's done a good job.

I can only imagine how much more he could get done, if not for the Democrats' constant political harassment and the media being so wildly against him.

Trump is like a donkey, taking everyone for a ride!

Right! And if you consider how even though Obama received even worse treatment and obstruction, he still has outshone Trump in literally everything, you have to wonder how much he could have got done without the constant political harassment and the media being so wildly against him.

It shows just how impressive a human being Obama was, and how pathetic Trump is in comparison.

He used to vote for that party, he got off a long time ago.
