Yes the numbers were amazing even in the one out of the three that the Republicans won in a district Trump won 79% to 17% the Democrat had a 28 point swing.

He’s a white supremacist...those people are the scum of the earth. They’re a danger to not only minorities and colored people, but also those around them because they are completely irrational and unstable.

But trump wants to focus on “black identity extremists”...right buddy. Name one black identity extremist who committed a mass shooting.

Nate the California ban doesn't target one particular business. It's a penalty targeted at the NC legislature. Come on man. Admit that Republicans are evil and everything they do is wrong.

I think the midterms will become the year of the woman/child rather than Democrats or Republicans. The beneficiary will be the Democratic Party in that it is more friendly to those demographics than the Republicans. The other factor is that it is a non Presidential year so many Trump fanatics will not show up.

Usually the Republican have many districts in which they haven't a opposition candidate so running congressional campaigns have been cost effective. But those times are changing in PA18 which should have been a walk in the park for the Republicans they are spending millions to defend a district Trump won by 20%. The enthusiasm gap is also clearly on the side of the Democrats even in States like Texas, Florida and Georgia. There are many emotional issues that resonate with women gun violence, women's healthcare issues, healthcare affordability, pay issues, sexual scandal & security. The other motivator is a surge in minority turnout as exhibited in Doug Jones becoming the Senator in Alabama. Plus the Bannon effect while lessened still many dubious candidates on the Republican side is running for office.

Its going to be a bloodbath because the Republicans at the national level have proven they can't govern. It is as simple as that.

Evil comes in EVERY BODY. A human who is liberal can be evil. A human being who identifies as conservative can be evil. Regardless of age, race, gender, POLITICS...

PEOPLE CAN DO EVIL

The real problem in America is labels.

"Libtards"
"deplorables"
I am a liberal
I am a conservative

Angry about politics----->EVIL

THE IRRATIONALLY STRONG EMOTIONAL RESPONSES THAT PEOPLE GIVE OVER THEIR POLITICS IS THE REAL PROBLEM.

FOOLS WITH GUNS IS THE REAL PROBLEM. Evil people kill people.

Labeling the mass shooting problem a mental health problem, rather than a spiritual issue is a huge mistake. Mental illness is not a mass murderer contagion. Mentally ill people are being labeled and further stigmatized. The problem might involve poor mental state (or not); BUT IT IS NOT THE ROOT. Evil is.

Cruz fits a profile. White guy with powerful weapon. Deplorable is really a superficial observation just like white guy is superficial label. Look deeper...

Dad dies, Mom not there, dude says demons prompt him... And because everybody "wants to have a gun" he can get one real easy down in Florida.

Just to conclude I don't like that term deplorable and I don't like libtard.

America is a house divided. People look at Trump but they don't look for God. People look at Obama but they don't look for God.

The thing was though was that conservative groups like 4Chan trolled the national media and generated fake content to back up the claim that Cruz was a white supremacist. This was done in effort to make national media sources seem less credible. But now it turns out that the shooter is a white supremacist after all which is kind of funny until you remember that a bunch of people lost their lives.
