    The Supreme Court overturned Roe v. Wade. Most abortions now illegal in Utah

    Utah is one of the states that had a trigger law in place, and that law became effective Friday night. https://www.deseret.com/utah/2022/6/24/23165883/abortion-supreme-court-roe-wade-overturn-trigger-law-utah-constitutional-right?utm_campaign There is, however, one issue possibly skewing the...

    New York Appellate Court upholds striking down state map

    It looks like House elections may get even worse for Democrats, with a New York appellate court mostly upholding a lower court's decision striking down the legislature's gerrymandered House map. The decision makes for interesting reading. Apparently, the lower court actually made three...

    Possible Extinction of Democrat Crossover Districts

    I’m sure everyone on this site is aware of the decline of crossover voters, we may be seeing its inevitable outcome (for the less popular party, at least). The article also has an interesting thumbnail sketch of the history of crossover voting, at least in the House...

    What Americans Think about Elections

    Time for another "What Americans Think ..." thread! Like the others these will generally be Rasmussen polls, when they do something specific enough. In this case, it's the Trump/DeSantis matchup! Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis is very popular with Republican voters, but if former President Donald...

    Things aren't looking good for Democrats in Nevada!

    https://theliberalpatriot.substack.com/p/the-democrats-nevada-problem Usually I focus more on Utah than Nevada, seeing how I consider myself a Utah expatriate despite living in Nevada for over two decades. (Guess where I'm headed as soon as I retire!) But Nevada is the state where I vote, so I...

    Kentucky Gov. Andy Beshear vetoes bill banning male-born athletes from female sports

    https://www.washingtontimes.com/news/2022/apr/6/andy-beshear-kentucky-governor-vetoes-bill-banning/ Seems we're looking at another veto override on the issue, and that much more weight on the inevitable Supreme Court case coming down the pike. And another example of the differences between...

    GOP moves to block unions’ port slowdown tactic

    https://www.washingtontimes.com/news/2022/apr/5/gop-moves-block-unions-port-slowdown-tactic/ I can honestly say I didn't see this one coming, and it does put Democrats in something of a bind--the Dockworkers' Union as well, for that matter. Considering how bad the supply chain issues are...

    Biden adds hurdles to federal grants for charter schools, keeps promise to teachers unions

    It looks like the Biden administration* has chosen to go to war with the nation's students and parents, on behalf of the teachers unions: https://www.washingtontimes.com/news/2022/apr/1/biden-adds-hurdles-federal-grants-charter-schools-/

    What Americans Think about Daily Life

    This is my third thread dealing with Rasmussen polls. My first (What Americans Think about Politics) and second (What Americans Think about President Biden) are solidly political, naturally enough, but not all Rasmussen polls are political--occasionally they deal with anything from who we think...

    Red States / Blue States

    You see the terms used all the time--Red States / Blue States. But they aren't exactly defined very well, leading to questions of just who belongs in which category. Does a state that has been consistently voting for Democratic candidates for president become a red state if they vote for a...

    Federal judge rules Biden’s lax deportation policy is illegal

    https://www.washingtontimes.com/news/2022/mar/22/federal-judge-rules-bidens-lax-deportation-policy-/ The Biden administration* has been saying ever since the election that they want to ignore noncriminal illegal migrants to focus on the criminals. That is a lie--as Stephen Dinan points out in...

    Dems doubling down on race

    It seems while the Republicans are expanding their appeal to minority middle-and working-class voters, the Democrats are doubling down on making everything about race. Which means, of course, that they are doubling down on their lies about the nature of US society...

    What Americans Think about President Biden

    So here's the second of my threads on Rasmussen polls (the first is What Americans Think about Politics, with the background of where these are coming from). Rasmussen is, so far as I know, the only polling company that still polls on the president's job approval every weekday (except...

    What Americans Think about Politics

    For years on another site, I've been posting a weekly recap of the Rasmussen polls that the company has sent out emails about, along with some of the crosstabs if anyone expresses an interest--said crosstabs available due to the premium membership that reporters have to have to get access so...

    Beto O'Rourke "refining" his positions

    A good way to tell the state of politics in a state is the positions taken by serious candidates for governor from minority parties. Case in point: https://www.washingtontimes.com/news/2022/mar/17/beto-orourke-pivots-right-uphill-bid-unseat-texas-/ Of course, as one would expect, O'Rourke's...

    Recovering Libertarian

    Refugee from another another "discussion" site, didn't notice this forum when I signed up last weekend. Became an Ivory Tower Libertarian in College, called myself a Pragmatic Religious Libertarian for years as Real Life ground away at the edges, until I've recently admitted I've turned into a...
