    The last poll pre-Trump visit had Bevins up by 5. Post Trump visit, Bevins lost by 0.5 points.

    Bevins was never down by 17. The polls showed Bevins was up by single digits days before the election and before Trump's visit. Bevins lost because he ran behind Republicans in suburban counties. Bevins was correctly described as Trump before there was a Trump. Democrats stole no votes.

    Virginia turned blue because suburban voters have turned against the GOP. Just as they did in Pennsylvania, Michigan, and Wisconsin. Just as they did in Georgia and Texas to name a few states. These suburban areas are not next to DC.

    Pre-Trump, Republicans had a majority of 66-34 in the House of Delegates Virginia was a bellweather state in 2017. Democrats won big among suburban voters and won the female vote by a larger margin than Clinton did. Those apparently are still in play. 2020 will be determined by suburban voters.

    Assange has been supported by Vladimir Putin so what Assange says is meaningless.

    The DNC servers were hacked by the Russians just as they launched a phishing attack on Podesta. Also the e-mails of French President Macron was hacked as well.

    There isn't a scrap of evidence to support that claim.

    You're a lying moron.

    It's certainly a much bigger uphill battle for Comrade Donald in 2020 since Putin is no longer able to help him.

    I disagree. Texas, Arizona and Georgia are also in play. Pennsylvania and Michigan are likely to go Democrat. Republicans are offering us such things as kicking people off of their insurance. The number of uninsured has gone up since Trump took office. Then we have tax cuts for the rich and powerful. Dirty air and water and destruction of wildlife habitat. Cruelty towards people who are fleeing in fear of their lives. Trump also motivates people to vote against him as well. Women have been voting for Democrats by larger numbers than they voted for Clinton.

    I don't agree with that. Bevins shared many of the characteristics of Trump. He attacked teachers for wanting better salaries. Suburban voters voted against Bevins not Trump.

    That triad of Pennsylvania/Wisconsin/Michigan that infamously tilted Rump in and thereby averted "riots", not one of them were able to choose a candidate. Nobody broke 50% in any of them. That's a rather soft landing.

    The same was true in AridZona. And several other states including this one, including Florida, even including Utah. You don't get much more "red" than Utah and Rump couldn't swing a majority of the state's vote even with an R dangling after his mane.

    Putin himself defended Assange from the criminal charges Assange faced. He funneled money to Assange through a program called Russia Today. Those are several ties that Russia has to Assange.

    You are the lying moron.
