The Spice Must Flow, Part Infinity

The Spice Must Flow

Upchuck speaks:

WASHINGTON — Yes, the political environment was rough for Democrats on Tuesday night. Yes, playing the Trump and Jan. 6 cards didn’t work as well as they had hoped. And, yes, Democrats lost independent voters in Virginia, per the exit poll.

But there’s an even more troubling takeaway for Democrats now that the dust has settled on Tuesday’s results: They’re losing white voters, rural voters and voters without college degrees by such large margins that it makes winning elections hard.

Or, one could argue that the Republicans have a lock on the racists of Possum Hollar.

Anyway, to back up his assertion, NBC News’ political director Upchuck ’The Facts Don’t Matter” Todd looks at an exit poll. 

In Virginia, white men made up 36 percent of the electorate, according to the exit poll, and they broke for Republican Glenn Youngkin over Democrat Terry McAuliffe by a 2-to-1 margin, 66 percent to 34 percent. (In 2017’s gubernatorial contest, it was 63 percent to 36 percent.)

White women, who made up 38 percent of voters in Virginia, sided with Youngkin by 14 points, 57 percent to 43 percent. (In 2017, it was just by 3 points, 51 percent to 48 percent.)

Whites without a college degree, representing 36 percent of voters, went for Youngkin, 76 percent to 24 percent. (In 2017, it was 72 percent to 26 percent.)

We noted on the day of the election that the exit polls were going to be BS because Republican districts were hardly part of the early vote, so the exit polls were hugely skewed towards Team Evil.

If one goes to a Klan rally they might get similar results, Upchuck. Potato-potato.

  1. HALF the votes in Virginia were absentee ballots. “Exit” polls have ZERO credibility here.

    Unfortunately there’s no other turnout statistics I can find, but I’ll note absentee ballot returns were pretty uniformly 80% across the state.

    THE MOST DEDICATED VOTERS are not represented in the ‘exit polls’, because sure as hell the full turnout wasn’t 80%…

    I had no idea VA represents the entire nation. No, wait! What? So much for what happens in VA stays in VA.

      The worthless beltway media is so thirsty for incompetence and chaos like that of the fat nixon administration, they are more than willing to create faux drama where it doesn’t exist and sink the Biden administration in the process.

    Leave it to white suburban voters when they aren’t picking their noses or scratching their filthy asses to pay attention long enough to become afraid and somewhat guilty of the non-existent critical race theory that’s supposedly being taught to their little angels. The Democratic Party needs to stop taking AA women and their support for granted if they truly want to win elections in this dying, bloated empire. FFS

      this dying, bloated empire.

      I like it! It matches my strong sense that I am living in a period of inexorable national decline. This isn’t the America I remember as a boy in the early 60s, that’s for sure.

        When you have morally bankrupt politicians arguing for a ‘bothsiderist’ approach when discussing the Holocaust to children, along with accepting people’s feelings over facts, people whose lives are very comfortable and prosperous, but lead you to believe they are discriminated against, you know you’ve crossed a point Of no return.
