    Re: 2020 Democratic Challengers V: Bye Felicia

    Interesting how I keep hearing this in weird places. Watching cable news and a NY Times Reporter was asked about how the White House feels about 2020. Reporter says the White House is always concerned about 2020, they feel they need to win the same states they did last time........they also feel they can play offense in MINNESOTA!!!!!!!!!!!!

    So, apparently based on what I hear around here the Republicans are the stupidest party on earth. Cause they seem to think Minnesota is in play yet we all know it can't be in play. Just mention the possibility around here and you'll feel the heat.

    I'd still like to know AND it's all I've ever asked on this topic and I never get a solid answer. Why? Why do they think this state of all the other states in the country they could possibly flip is the one? Rural? Surrounded by Red? What is it? That's all I ever wanted to know.

    Iím not even sure the worst of those candidates would lose MN but if that happened itís obvious that they lost every actual swing state and some other outliers, at which point itís not like MN lost them the election.

    I donít really get scoobyís ongoing fixation of MN turning red.

    I agree. MN is not in play. Maybe they are basing it on the 3 (4?) somewhat big urban areas? Mpls/St Paul I count as one area. Duluth, Rochester.....St Cloud? *shrug* look at MN's presidential history...The R's take is silly.

    There was an answer and you refuse to see it. We have a LOT of rural areas, but do they outweigh the urban areas? I don't think so.

    That's not what I asked. Just forget it. Every time I try it fails. This board is good but this topic never works.

    You asked why do Rs think MN can flip. I answered because of the rural areas, however I think the urban areas overpower the rural, which means it stays D.

    It's that simple.

    Re: 2020 Democratic Challengers V: Bye Felicia

    That seemed like a pretty straightforward answer to the question that was asked. The theory floated by the R's is that the rural areas in Minnesota (and xenophobia of Ilhan Omar!) would flip the state.

    I have a different theory though. The R's don't actually think MN is in play. They are talking like it is to change the narrative. Right now the narrative is that a bunch of red states are possible flips in the next election. They hope to get networks to report that a safe blue state like Minnesota is at risk of flipping. They also hope maybe they can talk a good enough game that the Democrats devote more resources to Minnesota than needed and are unable to use those resources elsewhere. Don't buy it for a second and any high level Democrat that falls for such foolishness should never work in politics again.

    That's a good take.

    Hey, Scoob, look at that first line. Just sayin'.

    Weird.

    Maybe itís possible we just donít like coastal opportunists who donít take the time to hide it. Maybe we donít like disingenuous smug arseholes who think theyíre better than us because we live 1,000 miles from the coast and have the audacity to... embrace it

    Kinda all this.

    Even economically, the depressions/recessions/booms, we don't move to the extremes. We just do what we do, keep consistent (for the most part) and don't over react one way or the other. We "simpletons" figure we'll stay the course, it'll balance out eventually. Don't spend more than you can afford, and don't be in anyone's pocket if you don't have to.
