Why copy a lowlife's slogan? Why not just make AB greater.
Better yet, separation and be our own country.
Most Iowa Democrats care more about beating Trump than the nominee's positions on issues, early entrance poll results show
By a decisive margin, voters attending the Iowa Democratic presidential caucuses on Monday night prefer a nominee who is more likely to win in November instead of someone who shares their positions on key issues.
Early data from the NBC News Entrance Poll of those taking part in the caucuses show that about two-thirds of voters say they would rather see their party nominate a candidate who "can beat Donald Trump," while just one-third want a nominee who "agrees with you on major issues."
I get that the US has 300+ million people and that voting of any sort is complicated.
The continual fukery lately of anything to do with voting of any sorts should be a suggestion that the 'system' isn't right and working, and something else has to be thought of.
President Donald Trump on Monday coasted to victory in the 2020 Iowa Republican caucuses, quickly quashing his two lesser-known GOP rivals.
Trump won the Republican contest with 97 percent of the vote and 8 percent of precincts reporting, according to the Associated Press, while former Illinois Rep. Joe Walsh achieved 1.4 percent of voters and former Massachusetts Gov. Bill Weld garnered 1.2 percent.
The results came less than a half hour after Iowa Republicans began caucusing across the state at 7 p.m. CT.
The president's first-place finish also came as the initial entrance polls from the Democratic caucuses showed a predictably close competition among the party's four top-tier candidates: Joe Biden, Pete Buttigieg, Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren.
Both Walsh and Weld weighed in on Twitter in the minutes after the GOP caucuses were called in Trump's favor.
Walsh shared a message from his campaign manager, who claimed she was receiving reports that "at several precincts across Iowa, including precincts in Urbandale, voters wishing to speak on behalf of Joe Walsh are being turned away/told they may not speak." Those developments, Walsh wrote, were "Very concerning."
Weld, meanwhile, posted a photo appearing to show him addressing a crowd of caucus-goers. "The #IowaCaucuses are a great American tradition, and I am honored to participate," he wrote.
The official Twitter account for Trump's campaign was next to comment on its triumph, tweeting that "The Republican Party Has Never Been More United!"
Earlier Monday, various Trump surrogates including the president's sons, senior administration officials and Republican members of Congress had descended upon Iowa to rally support in the hours before the caucuses.
I'm a Pastor Who Ran for Congress as a Republican. Here's Why I'm Encouraging My Fellow Evangelicals Not to Vote for Donald Trump
Robb Ryerse is a pastor at Vintage Fellowship in Fayetteville, AR and the political director of Vote Common Good. He is the author of Running For Our Lives: A Story of Faith, Politics, and the Common Good , a book about his 2018 congressional campaign, which will be released in February 2020.
President Donald Trump made history last Friday as the first U.S. president to attend March for Life, the annual anti-abortion rally held in Washington, D.C. For that he received widespread praise from conservative political and religious leaders and voters around the country, including many, unsurprisingly, from my home state of Arkansas.
Trumpís decision to attend was motivated by politics. He wasnít against abortion until he started running for President, and yet he has heard mounting questions raised about the sturdiness of his support among evangelicals, whose backing in 2016 was key to his victory. The kerfuffle around Christianity Todayís December editorial calling for Trumpís removal sparked a reexamination of the durability of that support. Enter March for Life, an opportunity to double down on what Trump knows is the linchpin of his appeal to many religious voters.
The transactional nature of Trumpís relationship with evangelicals and other religiously motivated voters is a two-way street. He doesnít live by nor ostensibly even aspire to the values of most of these voters. They see his flaws but support him anyway because he helps advance elements of their policy agenda, namely, anti-abortion judges and legislation.
An Iowa voter who had sought to support former South Bend, Ind., Mayor Pete Buttigieg in the state's troubled caucuses on Monday changed her mind after learning he's gay.
A Buttigieg precinct captain in Cresco, Iowa, is seen in video posted online telling the caucusgoer that a candidate's sexuality shouldn't matter after the woman asked to get her support card back.
"I would like you to just dig deep inside and think, should it matter if it's a woman or if it's a man or if they're heterosexual or homosexual, if you believe in what they say? That's my question to you," Nikki Heever asks the caucusgoer.
Howard County Democratic Party Chairwoman Laura Hubka shared the video on Twitter, calling Heever a "wonderful example of Cresco." ………..More
