PA is a prime example of why the GOPe barely lifted a finger to fix the voting problems.

They are a behind it all.

Ever wonder why Turtle never cried about losing the senate?

Turtle's ideals are in the majority now. He won by losing

I honestly believe that map is close to what the country really is.

The majority of the country doesn’t want to teach or kids about trans.

JFK-Nixon was a little before my time but I’ve read many felt that one sketchy.

In my own lifetime, I’d pretty much felt the outcomes all legit up until this current century started.

My personal WTF moments on maybe having my eyes opened include:

2000 - The first time I can remember Dems acting outright demonic after a loss. “Hanging chads” and all the bullshitee that drug for weeks.

2012 - Mittens absolutely destroying an overmatched Obama in the first debate and then inexplicably going into a shell afterwards. Candy Crowley and Obama tag-teaming against Mittens.

2016 - The demonic, vile and unceasing venom unleashed by all corners in DC as soon as Trump was named winner. It never let up the entire 4 years.

2020 - States unprecedented suspending counts overnight only to wake up to a miraculous surge for a guy who barely campaigned. A sitting president increasing his own totals by 11 million over his previous election only to get smoked anyway by a guy who supposedly earned the most votes ever of any candidate.

So yeah, there’s probably been something foul at play for decades and decades but before 2000, it seemed like win or lose, people on both sides of the aisle accepted defeat gracefully and just tried to do better next time. At least that was my perception at the time.

GPD, you nailed it with excellent, nuanced perception. Would add one item to your timeline.

1980- Establishment Republicans force G.H.W. Bush as vice president onto Ronald Reagan's ticket.

The GOPe would rather be in the minority, its easier for them to be the party of NO, throw a few soundbites out there and use it to constantly capmaign for $$$

Then, HW's CIA stooges try to kill Reagan and place Bush in power.

But Reagan survives, and is pretty damned successful for 8 years.

Think of how awful the 80s would have been had the global cabal gotten their way with Bush I almost 10 years earlier.

Glad he's roasting.

That map reminds me of a trivia question:

Who is the only candidate to lose a statewide general election for federal office, either a Democrat or Republican, in all 50 states?

RINOs egos caused them to make a deal with the godless Marxist devils. They could have accomplished their goals better by infiltrating Trump admin. Pence would be the leading candidate for 2024. Instead, they let the Marxists crash our economy.

PA is a blue state, the GOP was going to lose this seat no matter what. Toomey would lose if he ran, that’s why he quit and is about to get a big payoff as a lobbyist. None of 3 GOP candidates can beat the Democrat. The GOP needs to focus on winning NH, AZ, NV, OH and WI where they have a shot to win.

Turtle can get more grift on by being the minority leader. Democrat leadership gives him plausible deniability.

No it isn’t. PA is less blue than NV and NH. It’s a classic purple state and the GOP should absolutely win this seat in this kind of red wave year
