Skip to comments.Democrats Are on a Winning Streak That Could Transform Our Politics
Posted on 09/22/2023 3:48:56 PM PDT by NohSpinZone
In the past few days, Democrats have secured majority control of the Pennsylvania House and moved within one seat of ending Republican control of the New Hampshire House. Those wins are not aberrations. They are the latest measures of a nationwide blue wave that has seen Democrats outperform expectations in 24 of 30 special elections for open state legislative seats this year. Legislative contests that were once considered local or regional races are being nationalized, as concerns about abortion rights and voting rights—two issues that are up for grabs in statehouses—are putting Republican candidates in a perilous position.
The numbers back up Williams’s assessment. On average, according to a fresh assessment by the data crunchers at FiveThirtyEight, Democrats are finishing 11 points better than the historic voting patterns of their districts would have predicted. That doesn’t mean that they are winning every race; sometimes, they are merely closing the gap in heavily Republican districts. But in other cases, Democrats are flipping Republican seats and raising the prospect that they will take control of legislative chambers that are currently controlled by the GOP.

Pull out the fraud vote and the dems would be way down...
Lefty women in particular. They get off being able to be the only special privileged demo that can legally murder another person for whatever reason they want.
This is the normal outcome of two generations of American women being indoctrinated that the ability to murder their unborn children is their most sacred right.
The voters better bend over and get ready
If this pans out, our country is finished. Might as well find a nice poolside to sit by while I watch all the idiots vote to starve themselves to death.
Also worth noting that both PA and NH Republicans are often indistinguishable from Democrats in terms of policies. They’re basically Democrat Lite. People are going to choose the non-Lite version of something in general, so this is a stupid strategy.
Blue state women whine about how bad everything financially is for their families and then vote based on Abortion only.
Truly the US has become the home of the deranged and the depraved.
Oh my gosh. Why not just get republicans to vote? That’d be a better way to win. This New Hampshire loss in a red district is most disappointing. Since 2016, we haven’t won much. There are reasons beyond fraud. Unfortunately, that’s the excuse that seems to resonate which doesn’t get to the core problem. We better figure it out or we’ll have nothing.
I guess John Roberts on the SCOTUS was right. I think he made an argument for the court to move slower on the Roe vs Wade issue. Instead of overhauling it completely, each state could ban late term abortions but otherwise we'll keep Roe vs Wade in place.
It was a mistake to overturn Roe vs Wade, as simple as that.
Let’s get to the civil war. Can’t live forever.
No they aren't. They are exactly what you would expect to see since nobody did anything about the corrupt elections in Pennsylvania.
FIX the Elections Pennsylvania! Stop the corruption!
Could be the eastern US is turning left because we are seeing the Western US turning right:
CA Parents revolted against critical race theory
The city of Huntington Beach will no longer fly the LGBTQ pride flag over City Hall during Pride Month, the City Council decided with a unanimous vote
violence breaks out between parents and LGBTQ supporters at LA elementary school where Pride flag was burned

Re: “blue wave”
Translation: “blue voting fraud”.
In a fascist system, the fascists always win.
They set it up that way.
It's The Nation. Always a bummer.
But Roe v. Wade was wrong (bad judicial fiat). So, in order to have good governance, we must effectively allow misguided women to hold the country hostage? What a sorry state of affairs.
“Our Democracy” is the cheating the Democrats do after midnight in precincts they control on election night.
It is a “transformation” for sure....
