Always though Iowa was a joke place to start

an effective way of ensuring white political privilege.

I think this is a great idea.
Always though Iowa was a joke place to start

 Democrats voted to remove Iowa as the leadoff state on the presidential nominating calendar and replace it with South Carolina starting in 2024

Iowa was traditionally a swing state so it made sense. It is not now. Fortunately theyíve fixed that by moving to a state thatís always up for grabs: South Carolina.

Does that mean that Iowa where the GOP will start?
Not remembering how this works

I mean last time was such a joke with the GOP with a bunch of states just canceling the primaries where other states were holding them

An interesting take

The DNC has voted to approve a White House plan of moving South Carolina to the front of the line of the 2024 calendar, followed by Nevada and New Hampshire and onto Georgia and Michigan before Super Tuesday. Call it the President Biden re-election protection act.

Its Bidenís nomination if he wants it regardless of state order.

This is really pretty good aside from SC (which is meant as a gesture to black voters but is electorally brain dead). The other states are fantastic.

The really under-discussed repercussion of this is how many political ads am I going to have to see during Michigan games next fall and winter 2024 as a result of this?

From Ole billy k

Unsettling news:

Election-denier Lake got 49.7% in AZ.

Super-flawed candidate Walker got ~48.5% in GA.

Johnson won WI with 50.5%.

So those states are very much in play for 2024. If my EC math is right, if Rs add those three to states they won in 2020, they win the presidency.

bring on the GOP shitshow 2024. 
My prediction is trump will continue to run and grift.  Then continue to throw hand grenades in every direction.  At both the dems and GOP. then will lose the first few states and realize there is no chance and drop out late in the game.

this has got to be the smallest his base has ever been
31% want the former president to run

alternate ending: he loses the republican nom, so starts his own party and runs as a third-party candidate.  the GOP begs him not to, rightly predicting that he'll split the conservative vote thus ensuring that the Dems keep the WH.  trump won't care, because continued campaigning = continued grifting and he'll be aware this will be his last big chance to fleece the flock.  dems could run biden's corps and they'd still win (probably will ;D ).  trump is happy to murder the GOP in 2024 in return for cold hard cash.

epilogue: trump disappears, but his party remains.  more competent right-wing nationalists who can form complete sentences rise in the ranks and vie for the conservative vote against a fading GOP.  trump dies, but trumpism lives on.

this is my dream.   I've predicted this more than once, and so far have only felt foolish making that prediction

almost implying that he once did care

ultimately the biggest threat we face.  But it's very cult of personality, as we've seen Desantis or Don Jr clearly doesn't satisfy the hard core MAGA
I think in the end that 10-15 million MAGA voters will go back to under their rocks and won't vote in future presidential elections and that too may be the kill shot of what the GOP is today

only wild card on all of this is if the GOP really starts to lean into the Hispanic vote.  It's not like they haven't done 180s multiple times on this topic in decades, biggest issue would be getting the GOP to shed its xenophobic and white supremist tendencies.  They could easily gain 10 +mil voters here if done right

 as a case could be made there are more 'getable' Hispanics than crazy white MAGAs
