    [–] To help rural America, policymakers must first understand it WarOfNoise 1 points ago in politics

    this expresses no understanding at all, but instead the mindframe this article, and others like it, are trying to address.

    this is the Liberal, condescending "We're trying to help you and you're rejecting it, you idiots!" approach that has been the dynamic coming from the cities to the not-cities for decades now.

    Understanding them is different than picking out one thing you think they are all rejecting that would help them.

    One, there were areas in rural america where no providers would go to, yet those people still got the penalty for it.

    Second, their view on Obama was that he could care less about them, and the government as a whole pretty much is just letting them die. Trump is losing a ton of support, because first off, he was the only candidate who consistently went out to them and merely acknowledged their existence when no one else would (this includes GOP politicains too) and secondly hasn't really been doing much to help them like he said he would.

    This is a vacuum that Democrats could fill very very easily, but instead they've subscribed to the herd mentality of "they are all [insert negative stereotype here]" and either further or endorse the continuing culture of sneering condescension expressed by our mainstream.... the culture that led to this fucking vacuum forming in the first place.

    no, policymakers, and by extension most of our leadership, do not understand rural America, nor do they care to.

    what this article is talking about, you callous assholes

    [–] Republican primary voters are annoyed that their party is canceling primaries to benefit Trump WarOfNoise 12 points ago in DeFranco

    let us remind everyone that the DNC talked about how they "broke their own rules" to let Hillary win the primary over Bernie.

    the GOP is doing the same thing.

    both are private organizations that should not have such a say in politics. but they do.

    so, i'm sorry, but to be annoyed at this, you must also be just as annoyed at the DNC for being shitty as well... like they are now with pushing forward Biden over, once again, Sanders.

    if you aren't, then you're just doing that thing where you get pissed at, and only acknowledge the existence of, half a problem.

    depends on where you determine the ratings. they're all microcosms. or just taken from social media. whatever. i know many republicans who don't like trump. but again, that's my little corner. there's really no way to tell.

    [–] Why is Joe Biden on top of the polls ? WarOfNoise 1 points ago in Ask_Politics

    Biden feels like the next Hillary: a well-connected, big-money, been around for a while and has a lot of friends candidate. Knows the right people, knows how to say the right things, has notoriety and name recognition from being Obamas VP... that's all. he's just in the right places. so he's being pushed forward as per behind-the-closed-doors conversations., promises, deals... etc. Bullshit politics as usual.
