    And you are giving Democrats credit for things Republicans did. Typical lib. Let me guess, you think Lincoln was a liberal Democrat?

    Lincoln certainly did not believe in popular sovereignty

    Then you don't understand payroll taxes, that funds their retirement account, SS, but big govt. liberals don't understand that.

    Technically that's not actually true. We have a Republican congress because less people vote in midterm elections than in presidential election years.

    Not cool just to throw around the term "liar" like that. In fact, its shameful and ugly.

    Turnout for Federal Elections:

    National Voter Turnout in Federal Elections: 1960

    You will notice that turnout for midterm elections is consistently lower than for presidential election years. Typically the incumbent president's party does poorly in midterms, particularly midterms in their second term. This is because the opposition party's voters are more motivated to come out and vote than the incumbent party's voters. This is also why midterm election results are not usually very predictive of the following presidential election year election when the electorate will be much larger and both sides are typically motivated to get out and vote.

    With that said, you will notice that his average sits at -2.8, and that is the best split for Obama since June of 2013.
    RCP is pretty rightwing (as testified by how prominently it features polling from Rasmussen and Fox). I also would point out that Gallup's tracking polls are rather famous lately for being not very close to accurate on Obama's popularity (see its final polling for the 2012 election) and its latest snapshot doesn't reflect that over the past week that margin has fluctuated between the -6 shown at RCP to +1. But I always go back to how wrong polls have been compared to election results every time Obama has run for office. As the hackneyed saying goes, elections are the only polls that matter.

    Lincoln was a progressive. The Republican party used to be the more "progressive" of the two parties. Then, the conservatives took over, and it's been downhill since.

    Suuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuure the old, tired, PATHETIC "parties switch" claim as an attempt from Democrats to hide from their disgustingly racist and bigoted past.


    Interesting how segregation and Jim Crow ended in the South the same time Democratic control ended in the South....very, VERY interesting.
