Never interrupt your enemy when they are hurting themselves.

the truth is, most dem voters dont pay attention to the politics, they just vote when theyre told to.

I’ve got moderates amongst my in laws. They are confused by this. It’s a step in the right direction.

but I'm really not sure most dem voters can see it in their own party

Most, perhaps. But not all. Some will break. And it will hopefully be turning off plenty of independents.

I honestly don't know if the dems will pick up more young female millennials. But college age students are poor voting turn outs anyway.

Sit back watching them implode, its good for the soul, and their salty tears are a delight to see.

I wish the Liberal idiots involved in the Kavanaugh circus would just cut the shit, and admit they don't care if this guy raped a hundred women. They only care about the perceived way he would rule on abortion. They're dog-whistling their base so hard about that issue. The nominee could be a total boy scout, with a squeaky clean record, and they would still try to paint him as a rape monster because of who made his nomination.

I (unfortunately) live in a liberal town and they all think Kav did it. The people that need to wake the fuck up seem to just double down on insanity. Hopefully a few are noticing the bullshit but I haven't seen anyone shifting sides.

Why is it when people post these copy & paste stories on Voat they always never specify exactly where they're from?

I can tell you that all of the liberals I personally know in DC, San Antonio and Los Angeles believe without question all of the Dem talking points including that Kavanaugh is a rapist. I’ll admit that is not a large number of people (maybe 30 total), but it is unanimous.

On the other hand, among the conservatives I know people whose opinions range from Ford is completely lying to Ford is simply wrong about who felt her up 36 years ago. But no one believes Kavanaugh did it or that he shouldn’t be confirmed.

Not going to dox myself. East coast city so it isn't even close to as liberal as many of the places on the west coast but it is still pretty bad.

While that is an interesting theory, it overlooks that the President only has at best tenuous control over either house of the legislature. I think he is doing his best to use this to his advantage but he is somewhat forced to react to what others do and he doesn’t fully orchestrate it.

I bet you're right. The more the dems act like dems the better the midterms will turn out for republicans.

Smart move.

Excellent point. Let it run straight through October. Fresh in the minds of voters come November.
