I agree- I mean, if an establishment Republican with no charisma could have defeated Northam, that would be YUGE news. However, EdG generated little enthusiasm in the establishment base in Virginia and none with voters who voted for Trump, from what I could tell.


So in other words, to be an electable Republican like Trump, you need to be a coarse blow hard that is as thin skinned as a middle schooler in the face of anything negative.


That and run against a corrupt politician with no charisma who rigged the primary against her more worthy opponent.

If you're running in a swamp land states like NY, NJ, and VA, then yes. You have to overcome a lot of low info and illegal votes in states like that.


Better off in more prosperous states like SC.

Take away Virginia's federal goody bag assortment and there isn't a helluva lot to crow about.

True. SC is killing it with the 4th worst GDP/capita in the U.S., beating out such economic powerhouses as Mississippi, Arkansas, and Idaho. And that includes all the federal dollars they take on from federal aid and military spending.

As compared to SC, I disagree. But that is not really the point.

Uppitty asserts that VA/NY/NJ is low info. I've seen studies that say NJ has the most educated work force in the nation. I'm sure that NY/VA rank above the norm in the same category. South Carolina? Glass houses.

Uppity calling these folks low-info, on the whole, because he doesn't agree with their view is, unfortunately, par for the course.

All jokes aside, SC has a growing economy across many sectors. The guys in charge are doing a good turning around what has been a poor state for a long time.
But calling other states low info, when you live in one of, if not the, most poorly educated states in the U.S, is laughable.

Nah, I'm talking about bureaucratic boat anchors.
