While it's not good for sure, low approval rating means nothing as far as impeachment goes. It could only hurt his go at incumbency really.

Ah, yeah. That's true I guess. It just seems like with such a low approval rating, people would stop listening and attempt to stop listening to government altogether. Though to be fair, you shouldn't listened to the government anyway.

Well it could also hurt the desire for those in his party to go out of their way to ally with him if they don't see as much benefit were he more popular.

Bernie was more active during his campaign than Hillary and Trump combined, so that's nonsense. However the dems felt it was their responsibility to put someone in that wasn't popular.

Don't even get me started on gerrymandering

Democrats have overall been winning more votes and yet losing the house and Senate For like 10-20 years now

True, but it was close and some of us at least tried to not run an embarrassment candidate.

My only point is that it may only be an illusion that the Republican party is radical, where in relation to the Democratic party, the Republican party is just doing its job. A few exceptions of course.

I was going to edit and say I mistook what you typed but I knew you'd respond quick. I got what you were saying now.

I won't say anything in regards to the other candidates since Stein and Johnson were both a joke, Stein more than Johnson obviously.

It boggles my mind that Congress is allowed to decide how voting districts are laid out. It's like giving a serial rapist free room and board and a skeleton key at a sorority house.
