Keep in mind that the GOP will be redrawing districts in a couple of years. Gerrymandering is coming. Scary times will continue.

OP/R6 has it right. Biden only won in GA because of Stacey Abrams' incredible work mobilizing voters over the last two years. She's got to get them back for the special election in January. Historically Republicans have ALWAYS won GA special elections. This one is life or death for the Biden administration.

Unlike the $ that was ineffective in other contests, Abrams already has a fantastic ground operation. She needs to get every single D voter registered and following through with a ballot. That's got to be a 1:1, personalized, repetitive effort. She's got the infrastructure - give her the staffing & media/social media.

I forget it was that I saw on MSNBC, but she's with Stacey Abram's group or a similar group in GA and she said "I thought I'd get to rest today, but we still have work to do. We have to get those senate seats."

We have to support them so they can energize young people and the black community to come out in January.

by Anonymousreply 2711/08/2020

It will be very hard for Warnock to beat Loeffler; because Loeffler will not only have her supporters but Collins as well, and together, there are a lot more votes there than for Warnock.

Still, I give major credit to Stacey Abram's or anybody who does their absolute best to try to beat her anyway, because she's toxic and horrible.

Now Ossoff might have a better chance.

Not true at all, they are actually dead even in terms of aggregate support. You need to add in all the votes cast for the long list of Repub, Dem and Indie candidates, see the list at the link below (scroll down to the GA Senate races for the full list and totals).

If you add up all the Repub votes cast vs Dem votes for this race, then split the difference with the Other (O) and Independent (I) candidates, they are nearly even: Loeffler with about 2.47 million vs Warnock's 2.43 million. About an 40k difference - a total horserace. It will all come down to turnout.

Even in the unlikely event (unless Trump manages to reverse the election results, that is), that both Dems win, Joe Manchin, probably speaking for others as well, has already said he wouldn’t support efforts to expand the Court.

What Democrats have to do immediately is improve their messaging because 'packing the court' will hurt them in the coming elections like 'defund the police' did this year.

Then - focus on winning Senate seats in 2022/24 to defang Manchin or R-s like Collins/Murkowski so that bills can be passed without kowtowing to them. When that's done, first order of business should be DC and PR statehood. (though we don't know if PR will definitely elect only Democrats)

The so-called religious freedom objection to same sex marriage should be confined only to religious institutions like the churches. Nobody's forcing them to marry same sex people if they are so against it.

Judges and City Halls have been empowered to marry heterosexual couples for how many centuries now? Neither the church nor religion has the monopoly on marriage for hetero people and they could care less what religion says about divorced couples marrying. Why should it then have a monopoly to dictate who can marry in a civil institution is beyond me.

It's nuts to allow individual people employed by the civil institution to refuse to perform the duties of said institution. In what way is it legal for these nuts to impose their religious nuttist rules on everyone, including people who aren't religious. Why hasn't any atheist challenged this in court on the basis of encroachment on his/her freedom FROM religion in a secular institution which must be assumed under the 1A?

Let's be realistic here, the Democrats couldn't capture the Senate on election night by winning races they were expanded to win, like beating Collins in Maine. I most certainly wouldn't be pinning my hopes now on winning both Senate races in Georgia.

Agreed, but Collins had deep & personal ties in Maine, not so sure that is the case with Loeffler. That said, I'd be happy with a 50/50 split, though Derr Dump seems to be doing his best from pissing off GA & discouraging the MAGA-ites from voting, so who knows

I see more visceral anger at these young women who have never proposed any kind of outrageous policy than at anything coming from conservative, white men. And spare me the horseshit where you claim to get angry at both equally, because youdon't.

A lot of people don't understand stock trades or insider information. But everyone can understand that david perdue was proud to have spent his entire career sending AMERICAN jobs to China and Mexico. It's a big deal now because people have been out of work

The law will take care of him regarding the stock trades, which incidentally were investigated by a bipartisan committee and ruled no wrongdoing occurred

[quote]Michael J. Moore, who served as U.S. attorney for the Middle District of Georgia from 2010 to 2015, sent his request to the Georgia State Board of Elections on Thursday. Moore cited multiple public interviews given by Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger, a Republican, in which Raffensperger said that Graham pressured him to throw out valid mail ballots. According to the secretary of state, Graham asked whether he could toss all mail ballots from any county with a high rate of “signature mismatch”—signatures that don’t match those on a voter’s registration form. (Under a federal court order, Georgia is required to let voters cure a mismatched signature.) Signature mismatch disproportionately affects racial minorities, who lean Democratic overall. Graham requested that even ballots with matching signatures be rejected in precincts with large populations of Black voters. It thus appears that Graham wanted Raffensberger to throw enough Democratic ballots to swing the state toward Donald Trump.

r159 It appears that this is feasible per Snopes - What's True: If a majority of Republican voters marked their ballots with Trump's name and did not vote for Georgia's Republican U.S. Senate candidates, their Democratic challengers would win; therefore, the write-in protest would undermine Senate Republicans. What's False: Since Georgia law only allows two candidates per race on ballots in runoffs, and since Trump was not one of them in the Jan. 5 election, he has no legal avenue to secure a Senate seat in this election. Additionally, there's no official space for write-in candidates in the runoffs, so ballots with Trump's name written on them would likely be considered invalid.

They really want people to get out and vote. There's also a lot of canvassing going on to. I've already voted though. Also, whenever I go out in public, there's someone asking me if I'm voting and who I voted for.

Believe me, everyone knows about this election. You couldn't miss it even if you wanted to.

Dems need to run nonstop ads focused exclusively on Mitchs rejection of the $2,000 check. This is the winning moment - even hardcore Trumpists are up in arms over Mitch rejecting the $2,000. Simple bill requiring simple “yes or no” - and McConnell /Republican Senate are ciabatta on camera saying no. All conservative website comments are universally angry - Dem ads need to use this and only this for the next week. It is THE winning issue. Well done Nancy.

Are there a decisive number of "shy" Loeffler and Pedue voters?

I wouldn't believe any polls that show them behind.

by Anonymousreply 24412/29/2020

You can't read anything into a poll these days that has a Republican down by 1 or 2. A poll is only helpful in determining if a race is competitive. These races are competitive, meaning there is a reasonable chance either side might win. Meanwhile, there were some polls showing Ossoff poised to hit 50% on election day and he ended up losing that race by 80,000 votes.

R's still have a strong advantage in both races. When the runoff started, I guessed the D's chances at 25% (at best). Looks like that's about where we are today. In D.C., Senate Dems aren't too bullish on their chances of being in the majority.

R245 is still smoking that Nazi propaganda crack pipe, which means Democrats are favored to win. His complacency is comforting — it shows Republicans still aren’t taking the voters’ needs seriously or recognizing the government has to solve COVID-19.

Georgia is a BIDEN STATE where the top pollsters are showing two Democratic pickups and the registrars are showing minorities and absentee ballots increasing above November levels.

Even the Trafalgar fraudsters, who inflate GOP numbers automatically by 7 percent and only survey olds with landlines, are showing Ossoff and Warnock both winning today.

r248 I wrote r245 and based it on decades of watching Senate elections. Any trolling on my part is unintentional.

The race looks like a repeat of election day. Dems are up by an insane margin in the early vote and race comes down to whether Republicans have an insane turnout. The way to turn Republicans out is to make it life or death and an unchecked Biden presidency (as dull and non-progressive as that sounds) may be enough to spur that turnout. The race is most likely to tilt to Republicans by 1-2 points which also means Dems could get lucky and win.

What there is zero evidence of is ANY senate race where Democrats could pull off a healthy 5 point margin. There were about 10 senate races in 2020 where Democrats had opened up polling leads and lost. For all of 2020, McSally was running 8-15 points behind Mark Kelly--she lost by 2.4. Jaime Harrison was always within a few points of Lindsey Graham and spent $100 million. He lost by 18. Susan Collins was expected to lose her seat and rarely polled above the low 40s and ended up winning by 8 points. The Montana race was always within 1-2 points and the Democrat (the Governor who had won twice) lost by 10 points. And then in Minnesota and New Mexico, the Democrats won by 5 and 6 points--two races that were not even considered to be competitive.

And those types of situations also happened in 2014 AND 2016 with Republicans winning seats that anyone watching polls all year had written off....Or coming far closer than expected. Dems have problems with polling AND with winning Senate races.

I've donated to both Warnock and Ossoff and my fingers are crossed. I hope they win. They might.

Your naiveté, your willingness to swallow every Trump hoax and your ambivalence to widespread political and media corruption never tolerated in the 20th century combined with your willful dishonesty and constant, juvenile trolling with double-downs, mocking and tantrums every time a Republican is proven wrong belie a VERY childish troll in complete isolation of the real world and no maturity.

Vote for Jon Ossoff..

Vote for Raphael Warnock.

Both are excellent.

[quote]there is zero evidence of is ANY senate race where Democrats could pull off a healthy 5 point margin.

Another example of the lying, cherry-picking and alternative facts.

The two, latest Senate polls in Georgia show leads for the Democrats by over 5% each, when you take into account that Republican peddlers the Trafalgar Group automatically raise results for Republican candidates by 5 to 7 percent.

What's telling is that Warnock and Ossoff have show massive gains in Georgia polls up to 10 percent in the last 2 months, yet Loeffler and Perdue have NEVER swung gains of more than 3 percent or so.

And time is running out, so Republicans are going to have trouble reversing the momentum for the Democrats, who keep gaining.

Trump and McConnell shenanigans do NOTHING to help the Republicans' "cause."

R254 I think there's something wrong with you.

Not sure if you're also R257 but I meant there was no evidence Dems could put up a 5+ point margin in a competitive senate race. Mark Kelly winning by only 2 was shocking, as was Tom Tillis closing up to a 10 point polling gap, as was Jon Ossoff coming in behind Purdue (and Biden squeaking by by only 12k votes in GA).

Ossoff almost always trailed Perdue's plurality in polls before Nov. 3 but we rarely got a poll with the candidates narrowed down to just the two of them.

Now people know the stakes for Perdue's seat and they're needing the COVID relief Perdue's party is blocking and playing games with.

by Anonymousreply 26112/30/2020

r261 That's not accurate. There were multiple polls showing Ossoff ahead by several points and nearing 50%. When it looked like a blue wave, several pundits said they were betting he'd hit 50. Same thing happened with that race as with so many other Senate races, the D did about what the polls were showing and the R's got a 5-8 point bump.

We see this a lot in competitive senate races, from 2014 on. D candidates hang in the mid to high 40's, then on election day, the Republican numbers slingshots past them, sometimes by impressive amounts. We're very lucky to get a second bite at that apple and at this point based on black early voting, there's no guarantee D's win but it will still be within 1-2 points either way.

An even more encouraging poll.

And from Mark Halperin's newsletter today:

"In 2020, I thought (based on my reporting with all sides) that Republicans would likely hold one or both Georgia Senate seats, in large part based on history:

With the exception of Alabama’s Doug Jones, who edged out a scandal-plagued Republican nominee in a 2017 special election (and was soundly defeated for a full term in November), no Democrat has won a Deep South Senate seat since 2008, and not one has unseated a Republican incumbent since 1986. (Mene Ukueberuwa on the Wall Street Journal op ed page)

In 2021, after more reporting and taking in these three essential reading stories…

* Mene Ukueberuwa.

* The New York Times.

* The Atlanta Journal-Constitution:

What’s certain is that the two incumbents sorely need his help. Analysts from both sides of the party divide predict that Democrats Jon Ossoff and Raphael Warnock have built a formidable cushion in early-voting, and Republicans need a hefty election day turnout to erase the gap.

…. I now believe there is a reasonable chance that both Democrats could win in the 51%-49% neighborhood (which would, please be ready, lead to a lot of legal challenges and questions about the prompt confirmation of Biden cabinet nominees…)."

r273 You can ignore polls at this point. Technically you could have ignored polls since November. All you need to know is that the D early voting numbers are where they need to be and the only question left is if Republicans will turn out on election day the same way they did when Trump was on the ballot. They might.

The D numbers are a bit better than in November. We'll know in a week or two when the final votes are counted. Might take that long.

Dear Sweet OP

I know you mean well and I love that the graphic actually has a turtle to represent McConnell.

But please allow me to disabuse you of the notion that Federal level officials have anything to do with how Congressional districts are defined.

That happens at a state level and is done by the state legislature. The House and Senate have zero input.

You, or someone who is equally fuzzy on the election process, keeps posting that "gerrymandered districts" somehow effect the presidential election.

Again, they don't. They affect the makeup of the House of Representatives-- electoral votes for president are computed on a statewide basis (except in Nebraska and Maine, but those are the exceptions.)

The other thing to know is that it's not just Republicans who gerrymander. The fact that we now control both houses in the New York State legislature means that Democrats will get to draw the maps for New York's Congressional districts, which are likely to shrink in number after the 2020 census.

by Anonymousreply 27701/03/2021

As much as I want the Dems to win, it's hard to ignore the fact that Perdue got more than 88,000 votes than Ossoff in November. That's a big margin to overcome in such a short time, so I'm tempering my expectations.

by Anonymousreply 27801/03/2021

R278 88,000 sounds like a lot. In the rerun of a Presidential election, its not. Ossoff knows where his vote fell short and has had over $100 million to target those areas. Also, 2-4% of Democrats vote for President and then leave the voting booth....My guess is any D's showing up for this aren't just going to vote for Warnock since the fate of the senate is baked into the cake...No Trump to get non-regular voters out. The amount of non-regular voters Trump inspired to vote was shocking, both times. It's a coin toss.

by Anonymousreply 27901/03/2021

The 114,000 + new voters above November levels from Democratic districts more than make up for 88,000 votes Perdue may have gotten when Shane Hazel's additional 115,039 ALSO voted against David Perdue on Nov. 3.

Try harder, Jan @ r278, as much as I want the Republicans to win.

On election day, there will be a lot of these people voting early in the day. If the line is in a city suburb with a lot of college educated and professional people, Democrats will receive a higher percentage of white voters compared to rural counties and other white voters without college degrees.

Regardless, results will be close.
