He did, so Frank will get at least one vote.

In a lot of places that will invalidate your ballot.

I guess my counter to that would be, in 40 years, this cycle will be remembered as the election that Republicans could have easily won, but instead chose to put up an unelectable candidate.

Sounds like the takeaway here is, "don't vote yellow snow."

This. Pubs had an open layup for the win but instead pulled up and shot a fade away jumper from half court.

one thing for certain... you can ignore all early exit polls. In 2004, the early exit results showed Kerry winning all over. Woke up the next morning to find that Bush won by 2.5%

Oh look it's Eyore again. Trump in a landslide, bank on it. Everything you've posted up about this election is pure gold, as in "Do/think the opposite and that's the correct direction".

Yeah, well about 10% of our electorate can't recognize when the country is literally about to be taken over by globalists, and another 40% don't care. It's just the way it is. We have to redouble our efforts and do the work for them.

Candidates that didn't suck would help...
