99% Trump
95% Carson
93% Ron Paul and Carly Fiorina
21% Hillary and Bernie (who basically have the same positions on everything)


Ironically, I read Sander's plan for a USPS bank and am not totally against it. I would want some tweaks to what I read but a lot of the idea makes some sense.

I get dozens of Google poll updates daily.
It's amazing how the Lib press is trying to
sway the process by lying about poll results.

Trump Cratering, Carson Surging.

Trump Has To Quit

Can Trump Ever Catch Carson

Yet the latest RCP average of all the
polls still has Trump ahead of Carson
by 5 points. If you take out that bogus
NYT poll where Carson beat Trump by
8 points, it would be even higher.

That survey was very interesting. I found out that I agree about 70-80% with every candidate except Christie and Webb who are 60% and 55% respectively. I imagine that is the problem with being a good Catholic. We are political mutts and don't fall in line with any political party.

If the voters demand a democrat and it needs to be a woman, how about giving this one a listen?

Most Catholics I've known were pretty liberal. Then again, most people I know in general are too.

And most people I know are not. It's
because you live in the Lib mecca
of the US, near the Left coast states.
It's why dealers have from AC often
have a hard time dealing in Vegas.
It's too laid back for them, they
can't handle it. It's why I came to hate
Santa Barbara, every type of goofball
lifestyle was tolerated. Homeless guys
in their 20's everywhere, breaking into
cars and houses, begging for money
in the streets. I got sick of it and moved
to where that crap isn't tolerated.

I don't think that is it. Nevada is a battleground state so evenly divided politically.

No, I think everybody tends to run with their own kind.

We tend to gravitate towards those who we agree with. Not always of course, but the weird thing is I have found conservative/libertarians just end up having conversations about non-political interests that i share more than liberal folks do. I mean even stuff like hobbies and the kind of house you prefer.

As I said, I left Santa Barbara because it was
so Lib there. It's the opposite here. A palpable
difference.

84% Bernie, 66% Rubio or Clinton

Not that I can vote there. Rubio's practically Canadian though, right? I wouldn't vote Clinton if I was in a primary. Her attitude to emails and records keeping is lousy and dangerous for a world leader.

One of the questions had no satisfactory answer: the Obamacare one didn't allow me to say 'No, and either go single payer, or allow insurance markets to work properly, not this bastardization that now exists'.
