And as many on here can attest to, if you have the opportunity to park yourself next to a Julian for a few cold ones over a few hours, you should definitely jump at it.

like to have a beer with
I do think this is how Republicans judge as they would prefer an everyman to a know-it-all



Trump is an everyman, and not a know-it-all?

I put him as a No because I could see one of two things happening:

1) We start talking about punk music, and then I realize he's sort of superficially into it and I get bummed out, or;

2) We start talking about punk music and I realize he's way into it but in a non-compatible way and it annoys me.

Agreed about the president thing, though.

I feel Beto would be super fun to drink with, just a terrible President.

Does anybody read the political forum on DCUM?

This is how one person there explained the appeal of Trump:

I will say as a someone who does not support trump but does identify as on the center-right, I find it appealing. He speaks plainly. Weíve had a lot of smart people mismanage a lot of important things. Someone who isnít particularly intellectual just sort of feels appealing, even if I know in my head that itís probably best for the president to be smart.

I'm willing to grant all of that.  But he still seems like he'd be a horrible bore to drink with.  Thin skinned, and egotistical. One of those guys who tells long stories about himself and than you'd have to watch every word that you said, less he took offense.

Plus, he doesn't drink. I want a moderate drinker as my president.

I think you give Trump too much credit. You're talking about Trump from 10 years ago. Now, I think he's a dementia ridden old man who repeats simple taking points and can't  string together a coherent sentence, even about himself.

I knew it was Morning Consult...just grabbed the wrong link: https://morningconsult.com/2020-democratic-primary/

Bernie Sanders maintained his position as Americaís most popular senator, with 64 percent of voters in his state approving of him
that isn't nation wide

Just give it to me

Still trying huh?


His popularity in Vermont has zero to do with his likability nationwide


If he was running for President of Vermont he would be the odds on favorite

He is in deep trouble

Running against only Hillary is very different than running against so many other solid candidates

Yeah...can you?

It seems like you are having trouble with reading comprehension

I mean I cited likability as being important and you come back with his popularity in Vermont?

So ducking what? Itís an incredibly liberal state and he has been the Senator for them for decades..he wouldnít be re-elected if he wasnít popular

That doesnít make him likable on a national level

I personally detest him

Explain what you are trying to say...posting a link to a bunch of charts doesnít say anything
