Democrats SLAUGHTERED In Louisana Election

By OccasionalCortex follow OccasionalCortex   2019 Oct 14, 2:13pm 249 views   29 comments   watch   nsfw   quote   share    


In Louisiana's Saturday election, Republicans had a lot to cheer about. Among statewide office-holders, the incumbent GOP Lieutenant Governor (68 percent), Attorney General (66 percent), Treasurer (60 percent, and Agricultural Commissioner (58 percent) were all re-elected without the need for a run-off, under the state's 'jungle primary'-style system. It also appears that the solid Republican majorities in both state legislative chambers will remain intact -- with the GOP expanding its Senate advantage into super-majority territory by picking up a pair of Democratic seats.

Then there's the big one: The gubernatorial race. Democratic incumbent John Bel Edwards, a pro-life moderate, was unable to avoid a runoff, attracting just 46.6 percent of the 'jungle primary' vote. The two leading Republicans in the contest racked up 51 percent of the vote, with the top GOP vote-getter, businessman Eddie Rispone, advancing to directly challenge the governor in November.

I wonder why R's are suddenly so successful? Population tired of GLOBOHOMO OPPRESSION circus? Jobs in fracking/oil industry lead to understanding that green deal D's will kill the (considerable) prosperity that goes with oil? People tired of ORANGEMAN IS WORSE THAN HITLER nonsense?

1 data point doesn't indicate a trend. Also, the governor is very likely to remain a Democrat. Also, how many turn overs in seats where there?

Seems like they just kept the status quo to me, honestly. The headline doesn't match the article.

Gaining a super-majority isn't 'keeping the status quo'. Winning seats with 60% - 80% majorities isn't to sneeze at either. Perhaps you are confusing the Soft Dictatorship in Cali with the far more competitive political environment in Gumboland for some reason?

No, I didn't. I read this though

"Democratic incumbent John Bel Edwards, a pro-life moderate, was unable to avoid a runoff, attracting just 46.6 percent of the 'jungle primary' vote.

What was the PREVIOUS percentage? Keeping the status quo just means keeping roughly the same demographic. If it changes by 20%, that is a major change - 10% not so much although it's significant. If it's swung from Democrat to Republican, that would be a pretty big change if it was done by a moderate margin.

This isn't a soft dictatorship, it's run by a mafia. Heck, I went to the California Republican straw poll in 2007, and when it became obvious Ron Paul was sure to win it, they just cancelled the straw poll. The vote didn't technically matter, but they wouldn't even allow it.

I was being generous. :)

This is mostly a disaster for Dems primarily because of the new state legislature -- which the GOP now has a supermajority thereof -- will the the one that draws the new post-census districts, etc.

Even The Hill calls this a disaster for Democrats:


Well, the proof is in the pudding. If things improve great, if they stay the same... Maybe guillotines need to be built. I don't want to see that happen.

Doesn't matter Edwards has nothing in common with the cultural Marxists regressive leftoid squad from the coastline. In SF Edwards would be considered right leaning Republican.

OK, Trump... step up to the plate and show 'em how it's done. I won't settle for anything less than 70% ! (OK, I'll be perfectly happy with a marginal victory. :-) )

This is the second very odd election in a Red-leaning State where the Republican downticket (AG, Sec/State) win handily, but the Dem Governor wasn't tossed?

I know the KY Gov wasn't a great communicator and got the overpaid civil servants all upset, and I know Bel Edwards is about as Conservative a Dem as one can hope for, but it seems odd to me.

The Republican Secretary of State smashed by 18%, the Judgeships all went Republican by mostly double digits, but the Governorship wasn't retaken by a 2% margin.

If angry Dems are showing up and complacent Republicans staying home, there should have been more narrow losses/near victories for Republican downticket offices.

The downticket was strong, but the main office weak.

I wonder if dead people are only voting for governor.

In any case, it's no gain for democrats, they retain a Governorship in the South and picked up no other Statewide office.

The candidates matter. If Republicans in a “safe red” state nominate a douche bag and he’s facing an all American rather conservative nice guy Democrat, the Democrat can absolutely win. Happened in Kentucky, Louisiana, and Alabama a couple years back when Roy Moore blew it for the GOP. I’ve decided that Jeff Sessions would be the best bet for replacing Doug Jones... he’s got incumbent advantage since he used to be Senator there, tons of name recognition, and he’s publicly stated that he’s on board with the Trump Train. He can beat the Democrat there easily and up the Senate total.

This IS and should be the biggest takeaway. There are left leaning policies that independents and some conservatives can get on board with. The problem in many areas is they're steering the car soooooo hard left that it flips and burst into flames after rolling over 10 times. No one with a brain wants to be in that car.

Of course, the candidates have to be local. In the north, they have to be progressive and in the south conservatives.

Just as Louisiana has been becoming redder Virginia is becoming bluer. I think all this win and Kentucky gov. proves is that Trumps power to influence races in deep red states is limited, it exists for sure but it's no magic bullet Dem killer. And this is a problem for him. Will the purple state politicians want him to campaign for them?
I think not but he has to be very active in those states for his own reelection. Should be interesting.

It’s funny they call themselves progressive, when they are regressing by destroying thousands of years of learned wisdom that society learned hard way.
