Red states don't pay much in taxes and us blue states support red states by sending red states more money than they send to the federal government.



Anyway, it's all on Joe Munchin now. Every other Dem moderate has now signed onto the infrastructure bill.

Pretty red for West Virginia is an understatement. Trump beat Biden 69-29 there. Trump didn't lose a single county. The governors races was a bit closer, 65-30 in favor of Republican Justice. Republicans hold a 23-11 advantage in the WV state senate and a 78-22 edge in the WV state legislature, all three of WV`congressional delegations are Republicans with all 3 winning by 30 points give or take.. There's not a single Democrat that holds statewide office in WV.

Manchin was a popular governor when WV was blue which helped him to win a senate seat. But he won by a 49-47 margin in 2018. Once Manchin retires, a republican is guaranteed to replace him.

So pretty much red, yeah, an understatement. West Virginia is the 2nd reddest state in the nation with a PVI of R+23. Only Wyoming with an R+26 is redder.

The funny thing about WV is how fast they went from solid blue to solid red, basically in one election, 2014. WV had 2 Democratic senators until 2014, Democratic governors until 2020. All WV Representatives were democrats until 2000 when they elected their first Republican congressman, WV elected their second in 2010 and their third in 2014.

It's high past time that we start electing Americans to congress and the presidency who put America first instead of their political party. For way too long we have been electing Republicans and Democrats who happen to be Americans instead of Americans who happen to be Republicans and Democrats.

Hate to say I told you so, but I told you so. smile

Covid is killing rural Americans at twice the rate of people in urban areas
The pandemic is devastating rural America, where lower vaccination rates are compounding the already limited medical care.
Quote
...an estimated one out of every 434 residents in rural areas has died from COVID-19.
THAT is going to affect election outcomes.

Hmm

Hmm

If we hit ONE MILLION dead, that's one in every 335 people.
So yeah, that WOULD affect election outcomes drastically.
In fact, since we are talking about the 2020 census, losing a million or more changes House elections and not in their favor, because the majority of lost seats would BE IN those rural areas.

This was LAST YEAR...
After dodging the worst of COVID-19, rural areas of Minnesota are 'lit up with cases'

Last week, the spike in COVID-19 cases in northwest Minnesota prompted drastic measures in the town of Nevis, where the City Council closed the municipal bar to help contain virus spread.

Well shee-it, the town owns their own BAR and they had to close THAT! ROTFMOL LOL

Damn libtards!

There are a great many posts where he simply repeats a lot of the same thing, just hangs a band-aid on it
with the label of whatever we're talking about is.

When my kids were small, I had to measure the cereal very carefully because they were in a phase where they were watching
to see if I was favoring the one or the other, and I guess the cereal was one criteria.
That's okay, it's amusing years later just as it was when it happened.

But I think I see Pero as a person that relies on measuring stuff a little too much.
When it comes to state policies or something like that he's a pretty solid guy, smart too.

But when it comes to elections he is just measuring cereal bowls.
Not that I think I have my finger on the pulse of Murricuh but cereal bowls only work for so much and for so long.

What kind of cereal?


You never change things by fighting the existing reality.
To change something, build a new model that makes the old model obsolete.

Cereal killer?


Get your facts first, then you can distort them as you please.
