    Well, it's a known fact the least educated parts of the USA vote straight ticket Republican.

    Trump said he loves the uneducated. The reason? They love him.

    It is literally factual to say that less intelligent people like Trump.

    And Mark, Dak is from WV. One of the mentioned places.

    Yeah but really he hates these people. Scoffs at them behind closed doors. Can you imagine him going golfing with some poor uneducated hillbilly?

    These people think he represents them, but he's the polar opposite. As a Democrat I don't relate to any politician, but at least the ones I vote for aren't out against my needs. If I was on welfare, I certainly wouldn't vote for someone trying to cut it.

    But abortions and guns are all the uneducated conservatives care about. And even then Trump has already let it slip that he doesn't give a shit about the NRA, until he forgot they're his biggest lobbyist and quickly walked it back.

    https://www.google.com/amp/s/www.nyd...outputType=amp

    Yup, remember that one?

    He's a puppet and only feeding the lobbyist groups what they want. He truly doesn't care either way about those people.

    Of course not. Why would a billionaire born into wealth, was paid into an Ivy League school, who spent his entire life living in NYC relate to hicks from poverty stricken rural areas? It's absolutely asinine that these blue collar people are convinced he understands them and relates to them.

    The only reason they vote, is like you said. The GOP plays the Christianity and guns card.
    Everything will surely be alright.

    Yup, so they idolize a man who hasn't shot a gun in his life and doesn't even know the words to the Our Father prayer and holds bibles upside down.

    At least George W Bush fit the mold.

    He's a genius compared to what we have now.

    Republicans also forget Trump used to be a Democrat as recent as the 90s. And also threatened to run as an independent if the GOP didn't nominate him in 2016. Do they all forget how antagonistic he was to the Republican Party just 4-5 years ago?

    Honestly, kind of bullshit you guys want to gang up and attack Dak personally. Calling him poor & uneducated... come on. That really doesn't make you or your viewpoints any better.

    I don't think anybody said he was?

    Simply pointing out the top states that voted Trump, and how they correlate with the least educated states, and the states with highest poverty. It's more so a question of how can people from states support Trump when he's so directly opposed to their needs?

    No one is.

    We're discussing statistics that happen to involve his state and demographic.

    Dak comes into these threads and baits, anyway. No one said "Jeez, Dak. You're poor and uneducated!". We're saying that education standards in West Virginia are poor. We're saying that poverty levels in West Virginia are high. We're saying that West Virginia, like other places with poor education and high poverty levels, leans heavily republican.
    Everything will surely be alright.

    I think the true point of interest in the numbers here is Trump's current stance on how he approaches the states that are Republican controlled vs the states that are Democrat controlled. He wants to only be President for the states that support him, and wants to pretend like he doesn't control the Democratic states. Which, ignoring the many issues with that, is all well and good besides the fact that these specific states are actually the ones struggling the most.

    So while the GOP continues to push this narrative that liberals give out handouts, it's actually the red states that are drowning and need all the help while the blue states are ahead.

    Meanwhile we have a president who is trying to succeed from the union, all the while forgetting he IS the President of the union. Does he forget he's president of the entire United States? To go more into this, did any of 'yall hear him ask Biden why he hasn't done a mask mandate already? Biden said he plans on doing a National Mask mandate, and Trump said "Do it then". The guy isn't president yet, how would he do it? Trump also boasted about him closing the boarder to China saved 2 to 2 and 1/2 lives. Then of course there's the entire new report about the repulsive comments he made regarding Cohen's daughter. People want to criticize Biden for being a creep because he touched people on the shoulder, but Trump supporters are literally going to ignore that creep shit he said about a 15 year old girl? They can claim it's just Cohen making shit up and all that, but we've already seen Trump make similarly repulsive comments about his own daughter so at this point where there's smoke there's fire. Trump also continues to discredit every former person he's worked with as a disgruntled employee...but they're adding up. The number of disgruntled employees is rising fast, so it makes you start to question whether everyone who worked with Trump in the past is just disgruntled, or if MAYBE they're telling the truth and Trump is the problem. The same thing with all the ones convicted of crimes that Trump has thrown under the bus. Everyone he's associated with is a crook, but Trump is clean? How? How can people just keep willingly eating this bullshit?

    That's exactly it.

    If you aren't nice and don't stroke his ego, he doesn't want to do anything for those states. He's so childish that he wants to take it out on the states that did not vote for him, and continue to not support him. That is not how a president acts or leads.

    That Town Hall was just further evidence of how detached and moronic he is. He takes no responsibility, and he never will. He is a narcissist, in unable to see that he is responsible and the problem. His campaign right now is quite literally blaming all current events and the issues at hand on Biden, who is not even president yet. What kind of moron would fall for that? "I made a huge mess, but the next guy is to blame. He'll make it worse. Only I can fix it!"
    Everything will surely be alright.

    Rainmaker talked about this yesterday.

    Apparently ICE has been performing hysterectomies without proper consent inside a detention center.

    Pretty disgusting and something you'd read in a novel. Yet here we are.

    Yes, absolutely so. This is the sort of thing that was happening in Nazi Germany.

    It is appalling. And it's probably been going on for a long time, sadly.


    Speaking of Nazi Germany, one of the biggest issues I have with Trumps regime is the enormous influx of Antisemitism. Antisemitism is at the highest it has been in decades, and having an administration and president that refuses to take a strong stance against white nationalism? That's dangerous. The influx of conspiracy theories as a belief being damn near mainstream, the continued discrediting of experts in science, history, etc...Very scary.

    15% of American young people do not believe the Holocaust happen, or "know if it happened".
