When a Democrat has good poll numbers, he or she is “popular.”

When a Republican is liked, the followers are “cult worshippers.”

Isn’t that your argument?
This has been the argument for the last 5 years. Succinct and to the point.

Are you seriously arguing that the Dems are a cult of Joe Biden lovers in the same way the entire GQP has become a cult of personality for Trump? Is that really your argument?
No, I’m arguing that you are way over exaggerating “the cult” of Trump. If I were as dishonest as you, yes that would be my argument. And the trump cult comes nowhere close to the Obama cult. Biden is just an extension.

His approval rating looks pretty flat to me:

The only reason to post this is to troll. I don't care, trolls don't bother me.

I also don't vote for a president to win a popularity contest. I hope Trump runs in 2024 and wins and goes totally off the rails on a revenge tour and fucks everything up. That would be hilarious.

Republicans are just short sighted and motivated by greed.

I work with a bunch of them and I was once one of them
and its this, 💯. For them based on what they say and that was my motivation, hatred of people and greed. It's still a struggle to resist these evil tendencies.

Spoof thinks I'm evil because I laugh at and celebrate death. When I was a righty I wanted to do alot more than just comment....😯

For someone who posts on here as much as you do, you sure don’t pay very close attention. The reason I posted it was there is someone who made the claim that his numbers were pretty flat.

Even though he is a huge loser, he still 100% controls the national party and his most devout followers control most of the state parties. They're in the in the cult or too terrified of the cult to go against it. A distinction without a difference. Only a tiny % of R's are outside these two groups and many of them are about to be voted out in primaries.

Contrast that with Bush or Romney who were immediately shoved to the shadows.

Obama had a rock-star type following among some small % of the public. But he never had the party under his thumb the way Trump does and certainly doesn't now. Many "Progs" now regard Obama as way too moderate, "practically an R" etc.

You're such a dishonest troll. I made that comment about it being flat in September which it was:

9/1: -3.4

9/10: -3.7

9/20: -3.9

9/30: -4.1
LOL. DHB. You said it in early October and it came with you telling us what polls should and shouldn’t be included (poll whisperer). Here is the “flat” graph on the October day you said it. Just a bad week.

You must not meet a lot of religious folks.
A lot of religious folks are “do as I say, not as I do” hypocrites, usually around vices. But you are very special. It’s wrong to tell people what true Christians believe you say. Yet you do it all the time. You seem not to be aware that you’re doing the exact same thing you accuse your opponents of doing.
The worst though is that you claim to be a Christian, but seem to hate Christians or anyone discussing their faith. It’s just bizarre.

Bush moved to the shadows on his own. Mitt Romney lost.
trump doesn’t have the party under his trumb. Lots of the candidates he endorses lose. He’s just a popular ex president and lots of politicians want to capitalize on that popularity. Just like Obama.
look, you don’t have an original thought on this topic, like many other. This is just a way to tar all of your opponents as dangerous unhinged lunatics.

Losing .7% in a 4 week period might be considered a lull in the decline, not dramatic, but it can’t be interpreted as flat unless you look at to the exclusion of the preceding trend, and certainly not after learning of the trend following it. You were just practicing wishful thinking.

It’s interesting that you think Republicans are motivated by greed, when all of the studies show they are far more generous in their personal lives than Democrats.

That's what motivated me when I wasa righty, greed and selfishness. And a mistaken belief that I was somehow special and superior.

Now proclaiming yourself a leftist does not change a thing.

You were an imbecile then and you’re still an imbecile.

Can I give Biden some credit? He read his script fairly well this morning.

I know many righties and they fit right into my description. I don't call myself a leftist, I vote for the lesser of two evils. I consider myself a libertarian socialist, that is probably the closest thing but it doesn't fit perfectly. I believe in maximal freedom as long as said freedom doesn't harm other people. I believe to those whom much is given much should be required. I also believe those with power must be accountable for their power, be it political power or monetary power. Yes, I am so evil....🙄

I doubt its weird. Most people are haven't even thought about things. I don't fit completely into libertarian socialism, I definitely lean more capitalist than a typical libertarian socialist but I see merit in many of the ideas and I support their expansion in society. I will freely acknowledge there are worthless people, how we deal with them is kind of the crux of many arguments. The fact that we can even have these discussions reflects on how truly lucky we are to live in such a rich and prosperous country.


Libertarian socialism generally rejects the concept of a state[15] and asserts that a society based on freedom and justice can only be achieved with the abolition of authoritarian institutions that control certain means of production and subordinate the majority to an owning class or political and economic elite.[22] Libertarian socialists advocate for decentralized structures based on direct democracy and federal or confederal associations[23] such as citizens'/popular assemblies, cooperatives, libertarian municipalism, trade unions and workers' councils.[24][25] This is done within a general call for liberty[26] and free association[27] through the identification, criticism and practical dismantling of illegitimate authority in all aspects of human life.
