    WaPo the always warrior with a poisonous passion in its OBSESSIVE anti Trump-ism, is 100% sure Trump's charge of illegal votes is 'false.' "Donald Trump’s bogus claim that millions of people voted illegally for Hillary Clinton" - Washington Post Nov-27-2016. It's one thing to call it: unproven, another thing to be so certain it's not true with no evidence to base it upon. However, what is so certain is that in 2013: "Supreme Court strikes down Arizona law requiring proof of citizenship to vote - U.S." NBC - Jun 17, 2013 - The Supreme Court on Monday struck down an Arizona law that requires ... requirement for would-be voters to show proof of U.S....

    Michelle Obama says she wants nothing to do with politics now, but oddsmakers still say she’s got the best chance of any Democrat of winning the White House in four years. Bovada, an online gambling site, says the odds of Mrs. Obama winning are 12-to-1. The next-best Democrats, Sen. Tim Kaine and Elizabeth Warren, get odds of 14-to-1. By contrast three Republicans have higher odds: President-elect Donald Trump is a 2-to-1 bet to repeat, while Vice President-elect Mike Pence and House Speaker Paul D. Ryan are each given 10-to-1 odds.

    11/15/2016 8:19:59 PM PST · by Degaston · 17 replies
    The Republicans have 8 seats, Dems have 23 seats, and the 2 Dem-leaning Independents are in this Class. With 44 seats in the other 2 classes for the GOP and Pence as VP this means the Dem's have to pick off 3 seats to get the majority. Utah Hatch, Texas Cruz, Nebraska Fischer, Mississippi Wicker, and Wyoming Barrasso are about as close as possible to being done-deals that their seats stay GOP in 2018. Picking off Corker in Tennessee would be super hard to do. Flake in Arizona could be vulnerable depending on fallout with immigration enforcement. About the only...

    “Many of our fellow citizens feel alienated and have lost faith in our core institutions. They don’t feel heard, and they don’t feel represented by those in office.

Less idealistic about how long it would take to change the country, tea party activists had gone to work, joining with others who distrusted pollsters and do not answer surveys.
