They give a pretty detailed breakdown of candidates, ballot measures, and other issues that might come up. I found it didn't cover court appointees for my area, I had to do separate research for those.
Damn the Democratic machine in NJ for making me vote for corrupt ass Menendez again.
Better him than Hugin, though
I'm disappointed that the polls are so close.
2 years ago, I was hoping this would be a repudiation of Trump and his values.
(*the relative accuracy of the final average GE popular vote turnout notwithstanding)
Now the reverse may be true; they don’t want to admit they were wrong, but they will show it by staying at home tomorrow.^
Everything hinges on turnout tomorrow. Polling can over- or understate general voter motivation in strange times. We’ll see!
The issue is that we already control most of the Senate seats this cycle.
The polls are certainly tough for the Senate, but this is an extremely tough map for the Democrats in the Senate and would be at a very high risk of creating a Republican supermajority in most other years. There is an outside chance some upsets occur both ways, but it should stay between R+1 and D+1, ranging from 52-48 to 50-50.
The polls look promising for the governors, Congress, and many state legislatures. That is where the real impact will be seen fighting back against Trump-ism.
wife's running mate's last name so I'm a bit worried.
Oh how I hate that racist piece of shit. If he becomes my governor, I will leave Florida.
I have to change my party affiliation to Dem so i can vote in primaries though.
That's a low-info post.
Still, Gillum doesn't have his running mate's name underneath his. The intention was the same. To mislead low info voters into thinking Desantis isn't a racist piece of shit. Which he is. As is any politician who supports the Trump agenda and wants to build a wall.
It'll be interesting to see if Dems over-perform. Especially considering that voting has been near Presidential levels this go-around. All that post-Kavanaugh enthusiasm seems like it waned and Dems are on the ascendancy. We'll see tomorrow.
At the very least I hope voter participation is bigger than expected considering how much more covered it has been compared to 2010/2014.
Early voted in Florida, brought my mom, helped my fiance and her sister vote, my father is going door to door to help remind people to go out and vote. We in this. Let's go Gillum and Nelson.
I voted. Now the wait..
i took a peek at t_d (i know, i know) and they were bragging about people crying when trump was elected.
i'm not even american but for the love of god, vote.
Chomsky on climate change, the GOP, and Trump administration.
For the Senate, you're seeing tossups or only slightly lean right in states like TN and TX which are deep red states. Alabama is redder, but has a Democrat senator because of Trump and because the GOP candidate was so bad in Alabama.
Next election is more favorable to dems well probably see a super majority in 2021.
Voted for every PoC on my ballot, regardless of party affiliation. Need to get white people out of government.
glad to know housing and urban development expert ben carson has your support
^^^ I thought this was about getting PoC into leadership roles, not party politics. White people are far too privileged to get my vote.
Seriously, regardless of party affiliation the right thing needs to be done. I casted my vote and will drop off my ballot tomorrow in CA.
Canvassed for Katie Hill in CA-25 yesterday - it's the most I can do to participate in the political process, since I'm just a permanent resident. Feels good to do something, even though I felt super invasive knocking on everyone's doors.
I just want Cruz to get blasted, although I am not sure it will happen.
I canvassed for just an hour last weekend at a few south asian blocks in LA Koreatown, but it was a pretty cool experience. I think ill try to do more in the next general election! Or make some dope animated positive propoganda that informs people of things..
It’s been crazy and disheartening to watch the 538 Senate forecast for Dems plummet over the last couple months.
Voted... praying to god Dems get the house at least.
It's a very difficult map for Democrats in the Senate this year with very few Republicans in swing/blue-states up for reelection.
