I would wager that if a poll was taken today which the average American was more interested in, Trump being impeached due to the D.C. riot or who will win the super bowl. The super bowl would be the winner.


Yep, a new set of faces will appear over the next few years and the gang that stood with Trump will forever be marked.

Time moves on. Lots of things have happened in the past we thought would forever change things, even the political landscape. Political pundits call these things game changers. But a week or two, a month later it was like these so called game changers never happened. At least to most Americans. Everything reverts to where it was prior to any game changer.

Being marked, folks like Hawley, Cruz and those bunch in the house are as high as they're going get whether or not they backed Trump. Those who mark them were never going to vote for them anyway or any other Republican for that matter.

The talk around the water coolers and break rooms centers around how in the world did the Steelers lose to the Browns. The talk on political sites like this one, are on the D.C. riot and whether or not to remove Trump. Guess which is in the majority or which is being talked about the most?

We're unique here, those on political sites are unique in the amount of attention given to politics.

I don't think so unique as political sites go but you are right about the cooler talk ... in the middle, no one cares, unless whatever government there is provides an existential threat to ordinary people ... people do not care what happens in the seats of power

I believe most people in the US shy away from discussing politics in the work place. Many companies even have guidelines against such discussions.

Debates about Super Bowls and March Madness are a lot less combustible than political discussions. It is much easier for a Steelers fan and a Ravens fan to have a “friendly” enmity than it is for a MAGAite* and a Democrat**


*I use the term “MAGAite” instead of Republican because I would really like to go back to the days when it was perfectly alright for Democrats and Republicans to disagree on policy and still accept that the other side is not evil incarnate.

**I use “Democrat” instead of Bernie Bro because it seems they and the MAGA crowd are actually in agreement about a lot of things, starting with their belief that it is much better to have Trump than a moderate Democrat.

My son is that way, he doesn't care one iota who is in power or who the president is. He says it makes no difference, Washington is going to do what Washington wants to do whether or not that is what the people want. He thinks all politicians and elected officials are in it just for themselves to make themselves rich. He's 52 and has never voted in his life. He cares more about the whether the Pittsburgh Steelers wins or loses than who becomes president.

If you think about it, presidential elections average around 55% of all eligible voters. So he's part of the 45% who plain don't care. Then you have another group of voters who only begin paying attention to politics two to three weeks prior to a presidential election, no attention at all for the midterms. Most of the voters in this category won't vote in the midterms, not important enough. But do vote in the presidential. This group makes up around 15% of eligible voters. This latter group may make up 15% of eligible voters, but they make up 20% of those who actually vote.

Just something to think about.
