      sure people heckled Chaffetz at a town hall near Salt Lake City, but he won his last election with over 70% of the vote. Those hecklers, many of whom were organized by a progressive group, are a significant minority in his district. Sure, a few of the angry people were fringe freedumb caucus types, but are those people going to vote for a Democrat? Nope. No congressional district that includes Provo is going to put a Democrat into office.

        You mean like how no state with Madison as a capital would vote for Trump to be President?

        People dont like being ripped off personally and Chaffetz was in favor of doing that. And sorry but I am pretty sure the "Progressives were the ones protesting" meme was disproven a while ago. The videos didnt show many people who were under Medicare age and they aint known for their progressive ideals

          So this is what happens when the Cubs finally when the series after 108 years. Five months after losing a race everyone said couldn't be lost, and getting stomped everywhere else, lefties have convinced themselves they're going to go into the deep south and Utah and start running the table. Other than Scoobs, who says optimism is dead in this country?
          That community is already in the process of dissolution where each man begins to eye his neighbor as a possible enemy, where non-conformity with the accepted creed, political as well as religious, is a mark of disaffection; where denunciation, without specification or backing, takes the place of evidence; where orthodoxy chokes freedom of dissent; where faith in the eventual supremacy of reason has become so timid that we dare not enter our convictions in the open lists, to win or lose.

            I really hope your side keeps thinking like this. Please, say it to yourselves in the mirror every day. You're not in any danger at all. Everybody loves your policies. Your leaders exude a quiet competence. There is no anger at all in the country that is non-ideological but simply blames the incumbent.

            You're going to be fine, just fine. Nothing to see here.

              So the fact that the Dem might win the Georgia 6th is just completely lost on you? Go back to defending United it made more sense

                For a Dem to win in a non urban / non college area of the deep South requires a leap of faith.

                  Sorry, no ***** way he would lose reelection. He could drop 20% and still win. Provo ain't voting for a D. And it's a fact a progressive group organized for his town hall. True progressives are a tiny fraction of his district and they turned out in disproportionate numbers.

                      Ahh, just poking a little fun at you guys.

                      If any side thinks like I do, they're likely doomed. My political instincts are nil.

                          We are talking about one district, the Georgia 6th which includes the suburbs of Atlanta. We arent talking about DrunkonMoonshine, Tennessee.

                          A district BTW that Trump won by 1%...13% less than Mitt Romney.

                          Despite what SJHovey (and apparently you) think, no one is saying the Dems are going to turn the South Blue...but this one district they can flip because pbviously some of the Red dont like the way the current GOP is going.

                              But that is the point. GA-6 is R+8, yet it is competitive. There are something like 60 R seats inside that margin in the House. Now add in that the average loss by the incumbent party in a midterm, all things being equal, is 33, and that Trump has record unfavorables for a new president, and the 24 seats the Dems need to take the House starts to look reasonable.

                              The GOP is sitting on a ledge in the House: they have a majority despite losing the net popular vote in House elections by more than one million votes. And that's not like Senate races where a large state can offset a bunch of small ones; by definition, House districts are all roughly the same size.

                              The GOP's sweep of the White House and both chambers is hiding some very deep systemic problems. It doesn't take a lot of imagination to come up with a scenario where the ice breaks and a lot of GOP incumbents drown.

                                Well, clearly this is true of us all here. We've got me rooting for The People's Republic That Is Always Just 2 Elections Away, Rover who believes Hillary is STILL A LOCK, DARN IT, if only those mean liberals would bow and scrape, Scooby who guarantees whatever the worst possible outcome is without reflection because thinking is hard, Fish who regurgitates whatever he heard on Fox and Friends this morning, and Flag who angrily rattles the bars while hiding some flies for a late night snack.

                                This place aint exactly the Jacobin Club.
