BY A VERY THIN MARGIN. If this election teaches us anything, it's that all you fucks have got to get out there and voat in November. DO not think this means we have it in the bag. Register to vote and fucking do it.

If it teaches us anything the elections are rigged. What are the statistics that virtually every election is ending up 50.1% / 49.9%?

[–] Rawrination 0 points 8 points (+8|-0) ago 

The reasons for this are many. Gerymandering is one of them. Straight up election fraud by the owners or controllers of the voting machines / vote counting, dead people voting democrat, and the nature of this particular area.

Are you serious or have you not heard of the law of large numbers?

[–] Cannibalguy 6 points -6 points (+0|-6) ago 

Like another user said it's the law of averages / law of large numbers. If it wasn't reliably accurate, we wouldn't have casinos.

If we had a serious moderate candidate and 100% voter turnout, the distribution would be 20% democrat, 60% moderate, 20% republican. But that would require building steam and not triggering the party-killer spoiler effect. First past the post voting sucks.

All candidates are moderate. Moderates are too stupid to see it. Being as close as possible but on the bigger side of the vote relative to a candidate is how you win a two candidate race. If you are already right of your opponent, it makes no sense to be anymore right than u have to be, ul only turn off the letier voters and gain nothing because you already have all the right ones.

I wouldn't be so sure. People are hyper polarized and vote for "their" side just to stick it to the "other" side. Moderate candidates that aren't trying to steal your rights get shut out

There is no such thing as a moderate candidate
