So, yeah, the Dems can't keep taking the left and minorities for granted, even in these shaky times.
Pretty much what I was getting at. Itd have to be a specific scenario for such a thing to happen. Otherwise I go with whoever I think could do the job.

You said you would vote Republican to prevent Trump from winning. Unless you are talking about Trump running as a Dem, that statement only makes sense in the context of the GOP primary. But there would still be no reason to vote red in the general election. Unless you just want to.

If you read what I said I also stated that it's in the event that the dems dont being someone up front worth voting for. I vote dem 99% of the time. I was speaking in hypotheticals.

Though I doubt trump gets past the primaries so none of this really has any merit.

For the Republicans? Probably well since the majority of the public seems to oppose it.

I wouldn't mind my student loans being forgiven, all else said. Dems probably knew it had no chance of actually happening, but it probably boosted turnout for the midterms.

yeah you can make polls say anything if you frame them the right way
