    If so, it would speed the Republican Party along to their doom.

    But probably not.

    Yeah, we couldn't restore property rights by eliminating Title II and Title VII of the civil rights act. That would be bad. Gosh, we might just be on the path to protecting the rights of people. We can't have that.

    Can someone explain to me why he was ticked off a democrat didn't support him? That would be like Obama blocking all interstate highways in ohio because John Boner didn't endorse him. Of course he didn't he is a republican.

    Personally, I don't think anyone in D.C. is "in touch".

    But the democrats seem more willing to listen and pretend to care about things that make them seem more in touch. Whatever their staff says will look good under casual scrutiny, probably.

    Republicans tend to either follow their personal beliefs (not necessarily religious, you understand) more, and thus appear to disregard "the people" a bit more - depending who you selectively call "the people" in a given conversation.


    Then of course there are the propaganda agencies of both parties - the Democrat propaganda system seems better at it's job.....
    I mean the "news" agencies, of course.

    This obviously means that the spin on democrat actions is usually better when it shows up in the news.

    Christie wasn't ticked off. Some of his staff were apparently ticked off because so many other Dems were supporting Christie.

    It might hurt him but I dont know if it sunk him. I do like him though but not all of his beliefs.

    But with a little less than 3 years to go, these polls do not mean that much, just a snapshot of the day. But what is important is the favorable/unfavorable ratings. Here they are for most candidates:
    Clinton 47% favorable 45% unfavorable
    Christie 43% favorable 31% unfavorable
    Paul 34% favorable 39% unfavorable
    Cruz 26% favorable 40% unfavorable
    Bush 31% favorable 41% unfavorable

    Those in the minus area have a lot of work to do. Clinton is well known, flaws and all. Christie is better known than the rest, but we will have to see how this bridge incident hurts him. The rest need a lot of improvement to become a viable candidate. But they have the time.
    blacks and minorites will not support Clinton the way they did Obama

    I Don't Know
    i said i don't know because i think it depends on how he handles it. he has set himself up as a no-crap kind of guy. I think if he makes a strong and majorly offensive move against all involved, and maybe become one of his own biggest critics, i think he could set himself as a one chance guy who doesn't take failure as an option and save his chances for 2016
