    Not in a Republican controlled house there isn't Minotaur.

    There will have to be an actual crime committed.

    No, the funny thing is that you actually think that's what people typically think.

    I can't tell you how many people on this board told me it was impossible for Trump to win the last election because of polls (including you) who touted some poll about his popularity among minorities and assured me it was impossible for him to win just based on the numbers.

    It seems you still have not learned your lesson though.

    Polls are flawed Watchman. Stop putting so much stock in them. They don't deserve it.
    well, first of all, this isn't an election poll. Second of all, again, I've made no claims regarding the polls other than what they appear to indicate. Everyone pretty much knows that polls can be flawed and/or manipulated. That's no great revelation. They are merely snapshots in time. Thirdly, most of the election polls were in the margin of error. Fourth, most of the polls were taken before the Comey letter. Fifth, there were indications that some of the people answering the questions, mostly Trump supporters, we're ashamed to admit that they supported him. Lastly, if you think politicians aren't paying attention to the polls you're living in an alternate universe. They most certainly are. That's why Republican's are having such a hard time repealing and replacing Obamacare. Polls are still the best way to gauge public sentiment.

    Republicans are having a hard time passing a healthcare bill because their party is divided along ideological lines. The moderates want the government to spend a lot of money and the conservatives want the government out of healthcare. It has nothing to do with your silly polls.

    Democrats would be foolish to do anything that results in Mike Pence becoming president.

    they aren't my polls. They're just polls. I don't seem to see any politicians saying that they aren't paying any attention to the polls. The only ones I see casting that sort of doubt are Trump supporters. All without providing any empirical evidence as to why we should dismiss every poll there is, simply because of the last election.

    As far as Obamacare, your analysis is bullshit. The Republican's are having trouble because polling indicates their replacement isn't popular. It has little to do with ideological differences. That, they could get past if they really wanted to. Their proposals being politically toxic to the voters in their district they can't.

    I didn't even mention Obama in that post. What in the hell are you even talking about?

    And no - ideological differences have way more to do with it than these silly polls you keep citing - which I wouldn't be surprised if quite a few politicians used as toilet paper.

    I certainly prefer Trump to Pence as well.

    Trump has driven the director of the office of Gov't ethics out of office.Trump and his administration have refused to take the advise of the office at all when it comes to White House behavior. The office's sole purpose is to get the White House to avoid breaking ethical rules before they break them. The director realized he was waisting his time with trying to guide Trump and his administration into proper behavior as they were not following any of his offices suggestions. That's very very sad. Tick tock to Trump's impeachment, things like this are just adding fuel to the fire.
