Democrats are less popular than Trump/Pence?
« on: March 11, 2017, 11:37:22 PM »

First of all, Trump is still crazily unpopular and is still the least popular president ever so far and shit has only gone downhill for him.

But apparently the Dems are even less popular than that.  They are a little less popular than the most hated guy in America at the moment.  That is just crazy all around.

Well; they are kind of responsible for getting him in there and there corruption, incompetence and hypocrisy is starting to get old.

Why is this a surprise? They are corporatist, so their base hates them for betraying them. But the voters who are actually pro-corporate still dislike them because the Republicans are slightly more pro-corporate. Rich donor money has corrupted them into being Republican-lite. No one likes Republican-lite.

 But the upper party power-players don't give a fuck. They are paid jobbers. They are getting rich being the Good Cop in a Good Cop/Bad Cop routine designed to advance corporate interests. They don't care that the country despises them for being a bunch of jobbers. They are laughing all the way to the bank. They get paid to job while in office, and if that jobbing causes them to lose an election, they just go to work as lobbyists for the people who paid them to job. Then, as soon as the Republicans Bad Cop routine makes them unpopular enough that people want to vote Democrat again, boom, they are back in office and its their Republican golfing-buddy who is in the paid lobbyist job.

Oh, they deserve to be unpopular, but I had no idea they dipped down that much.  Or I figured Trump's shenanigans would have given them a few points, which is what normally happens in the US when one side pisses people off enough.

Not surprised.  They cheated out Sanders, ran shitbag Hillary, lost horribly, and then put the same morons back in charge.

Basically the more reason you have to hate Trump; the more reason you have to hate Democrats.

Both parties are spiraling into unpopularity with the citizenry. America is being put to the test though. Do the voters matter, or do the corporations have politics entirely locked up?

Arizona is answering that. The special interests decisively lost a minimum wage increase ballot proposition last November. They filed a lawsuit to overturn the result. And lost that too.

They are going ahead with another lawsuit, under different grounds. But in case they lose that as well, they are colluding with the Arizona Legislature and have already drawn up six (yes, six) different proposals to virtually eliminate citizen signature gathered propositions from ever appearing on the ballot again.

Luckily a couple require election approval to become law. But a couple that seem not to have already gotten through the AZ House, on a party line vote. (These are the same basic people who were looking to treat protesting as racketeering.) http://herochat.com/index.php?topic=14211.0

All of the above really. Doesn't matter what system of laws or government you have in place in a society if the overall character of its citizens continues to rot away.

what was the dems popularity before the elecitons? Always thought both parties had shit numbers for a while. Since people mad at the goverment. Hell a lot of people said a vote for trump was a middle finger to the goverment. Wanting to watch it burn.


only way to fight this shit is vote in mid terms. Primary people you dont like. if  people really want 3rd partes to be a thing they really got to stop waiting to the general election to start voting for them. Vote local elections. And keep track of all the changes to voting.

You talk about people voting third-party, but you supported Hillary Clinton in the last two elections.
