Abortion appears to be one of those issues because what was once thought to be a hail mary chance to hold both houses come November is now almost even money. (and my prediction for the Senate is now the betting favorite because of the idiots the GOP put up) Women exist even in the most gerrymandered districts which is why the GOP is having issues.

    That could all change in a week, but if it holds and Pelosi still rules the House then we might have just saved this country. Think how much fun Biden will have with 2 years of little to no obstruction...
    I still think the built-in GOP advantage in the House is too great to overcome, but I feel moderately better about the Senate. If the GOP had incumbents like Toomey in Pa, or less bat-**** (but no less dangerous in my book) candidates in places like Ga, they would still be my pick to win. That said, Nevada will be close, Arizona will be close.
    If Democrats defy decades of inevitability by holding the House, with Roe v. Wade being the once-in-a-lifetime crazy catalyst, I want Pelosi to retire on top. God knows she wouldn’t. I know some say the same about Biden, but I won’t go there…

      This is a really great point. If only we could convince women to vote in their self interest, there's no way to gerrymander them out of their votes.

      If you don't change the world today, how can it be any better tomorrow?

        Well that seems to be happening if Kansas and a few other states are to be believed.

          Lets make a friendly wager (for charity) on the Senate since you seem to think it will defy the odds. I win you give money to a charity I choose you win and I will do the same. I will take the Senate to stay Blue (will even take it expands if it makes you feel better) and you take that it does not.

          In a month or so we can talk about adding The House :^)

The last thing on earth they wanted to do was remove a fundamental right from 51% of the population. Poor Karl Rove, he lived to see it.

            Angry Sky Daddy only works for the 25% most mentally deficient humans. The rest actually think straight, and this is lethal to them. The cons don't realize what they have done. They can keep cheating and stealing and lying but the underlying landscape has slipped from 45-55 to 40-60, and that's probably too much to suppress unless you literally end elections.

              Not only that, but cracking and packing is a double edged sword. In landslide years it can really fuck you.

                      I definitely wasn’t clear with my “moderately better” definition of Democrats’ Senate chances earlier. The little I have read, it’s 60/40 Democrats, trending blue. The GOP having weak candidates has to cost them if you’re a Democratic candidate. Fetterman, Barnes, etc. all seem to be running good campaigns, flush with cash. Making it 52/48 D would be huge. But, the House. I’d take you up on your offer with the House. I think it goes red no matter what. What dx states is true, but it’s not true this election. We keep the House? The chains would be undone. Gotta be seen as close to a mandate from the American people if Dems hold the House and expand their lead in the Senate.

                            • Herschel Walker continues showing the trauma of CTE, asks in a commercial where his opponent's dog is despite Raphael Warnock not owning a dog.

                              https://www.cnn.com/2022/08/27/polit...-ad/index.html

                              Turns out it was just a Warnock supporter's dog used in the 2020 run-off commercials against Loeffler.

                              • Walker is diagnosed with Dissociative Identity Disorder on top of what looks like CTE...he has no idea how badly he is being used. This is like when the traitors were using Kanye when he was obviously having a mental health crisis. Its fucking sick...

                                Listen to Walker a decade ago and listen to him now. The deterioration is highly noticeable.
