re: Why don't the major polling companies ever oversample Republicans? - VOLhalla
What party an individual identifies as and which party they vote for are two very different things. Roughly 25-35% of the country identifies as independent, not Republican nor Democrat. Sometimes that number can break 40%. When it comes to voting that block of independents votes overwhelmingly Repu...

No, the Constitution doesn't give him that authority. The War Powers Act, which is legislation passed in the 1970s, does. ...

re: Democrat wants House to 'immediately' return to diffuse North Korea threat - VOLhalla
If I remember Con Law correctly most legal scholars think the Constitution gives the President unilateral authority to react to an invasion and defend the country, but anything beyond that would require Congressional approval. But the nature of warfare is so different now it would be interesting to ...

re: Trump's approval rating surging among Hispanics, union homes, men - VOLhalla
Zogby internet polls are probably the worst polls that continue to exist. Anyone on the internet can self-select to answer - they don't even random sample :lol: Dude, even Rasmussen has his approval at -16. Rasmussen. ...

re: Under Trump, gains against ISIS have ‘dramatically accelerated’ - VOLhalla
Yeah, we've sent people over there to train some rebel groups to fight both Assad and ISIS. But it's the Assad government that's actually taking large swaths of territory from ISIS (and the rebels we support btw). They are going to win the civil war...

re: Under Trump, gains against ISIS have ‘dramatically accelerated’ - VOLhalla
You do realize that Assad is Putin's puppet, right? When discussing the Syrian civil war you can use the names interchangeably :lol: Assad/Putin have gained an upper hand in the conflict and are wearing down the rebels, which includes ISIS. Depending on how you feel about the Assad regime you co...

re: Under Trump, gains against ISIS have ‘dramatically accelerated’ - VOLhalla
Assad isn't helping us do anything. He's been fighting ISIS for years and Putin has stepped up his support of Assad. It has nothing to do with Trump's policies :lol: I would love for you to explain how Trump's policies have led to a decline in territorial for ISIS in Syria. A country where our t...

re: Under Trump, gains against ISIS have ‘dramatically accelerated’ - VOLhalla
No. We are finishing off ISIS in Mosul right now. That's a great thing and is happening under Trump. If he wants to brag that he finished off ISIS in Iraq he can do that because it's true. But it's disingenuous to claim that Trump's policies are causing all this territorial decline when it's hap...

re: Under Trump, gains against ISIS have ‘dramatically accelerated’ - VOLhalla
Almost all those gains have come in Syria at the hands of the Assad government - not the US. We are finishing ISIS off in Mosul though. Apparently ISIS is trying to regroup in Africa because their territory in Iraq/Syria has been collapsing for years. ...

re: "The American people have spoken" - John McCain - VOLhalla
[quote]Get rid of Obamacare.[/quote] No, he didn't. Trump ran on replacing Obamacare with something better. He promised not to cut Medicare and Medicaid. Pretty sure he also promised his plan would cover more people and reduce premiums. None of the plans have met Trump's own promises. ...

re: CBS News Alert: New Polls Shows Trump At 35% Approval - VOLhalla
I haven't. I was merely referring to Trumpkins trying to convince themselves that the 2016 election proved that polling was inaccurate. Its laughable and sad that posters repeat the same lie trying to convince themselves that it's true. Btw, what are your problems with this poll's methodology?...

re: CBS News Alert: New Polls Shows Trump At 35% Approval - VOLhalla
National polling averages were off by a little over 1%. Almost every major poll was within its margin of error. I don't know how Trumpkins have convinced themselves that polling is neither scientific nor accurate...
