11Alive #SECPrimary Livestream And GeorgiaPol Open Thread

Tonight 11Alive will be airing a Livestream beginning at 7:00pm. If this thing is working that’s what you should be seeing above. This will be mostly local coverage of the SEC Primary results with the 11Alive News Team, as well as discussion and analysis by Democratic Communications Consultant (and a friend of mine) Liz Flowers and Anchor Jon Shirek.

You get your say in the comments below.

At 10PM coverage will shift to WATL tv 36 (11Alive’s sister station) and then be on the main NBC channel for the regular 11pm news that will feature expanded campaign coverage. At least, that’s the plan. Will join as I can in the comments below from time to time. Y’all don’t do anything too crazy tonight. It’s just the future of our Republic that’s at stake.

To get the party started, Landmark Communications, which does polling for WSB TV, issued a final poll of 500 likely voters taken Sunday through today:

Exit polls from Alabama: 71% of Dem primary voters find Clinton honest and trustworthy. 58% find Sanders honest and trustworthy.

If we needed more evidence that the people of Alabama are colossally, monumentally, shockingly stupid.

Seriously. Constitutional scholars out there, what’s the process for kicking a state out? Maybe all that Article V talk isn’t so bad.

I voted based on gender – and by that I mean for Trump.

The GOP simply needs to learn their lesson. Am I an angry voter? Yes, but I’m not a tea partier.

Let the GOP house burn so that we can rebuild from the foundation.

Fox News is anti Trumo in a big way. It’s all about delegates, they say. Well, if you don’t WIN anywhere you ain’t gonna get enough. And some Repubs sniff that ain’t no way they’ll vote for Trump. I wonder if these folks will hold their breath till their faces turn blue?

Maybe because Indians were America’s original socialists?

I had this same thought, but here’s what Larry Sabato had to say about it:

…Oklahoma has a strong though ancient Socialist tradition — Socialist Party presidential candidates routinely did very well there in the early 20th century, including Allan Benson winning 15.5% in the Sooner State in 1916 despite getting just 3.2% nationally (Oklahoma was also frequent Socialist candidate Eugene Debs’ second-best state in 1912).

Semi delusional, really. Ted’s won three. He’s a legitimate challenger. Marco is a nice enough guy, I guess, but I don’t know where he gets his enthusiasm. Spin at its best.

Will Rubio supporters now help Cruz? Is not Cruz the least likely to beat Hillary?

“I’m looking for a man of faith to stand on the constitution” so says a seemingly drunk Tom Delay on MSNBC. Another old fart GOPer saying primaries don’t matter, ‘it’s up to ‘the party’ and delegates at the convention.’ Can’t wait to see how they screw that up.

Great to hear from another of the old, incoherent crooks who helped lead the party to Trump bitch about the result that is Trump.

On this we can agree. Tom Delay needs to shut up. Your time is over man. Get the heck out.

The vote couldn’t have been much tighter over here in Oconee County, where Rubio beat Trump by 3 votes out of 7000 cast. Cruz was only 100 votes behind. Carson finished with 7 percent which was 14 more votes than Kasich.

For the donks, Clinton finished a single vote ahead of Sanders. O’Malley with 4 votes and Steinberg with 2 held the balance of power.

The GOP establishment is in a catch 22, the party has never seen turn out like this before with Trump, and it is killing the Dems with their turnout. No way polling companies have this turnout factored correctly in their polling numbers with Trump in a general verse Hillary, because we have never seen anything like this! Polling is based on prior data, and nothing compares. Yet the establishment cannot control Trump, and he has crossover issues like trade, negotiating drug prices, wall street campaign donations, against policemen of the world foreign policy and supports PP if they stop doing… Read more »

“Cross over” meaning democrats voting for the democrat businessman Trump?

That is how Reagan won ie Reagan Democrats. As far as Trump being a Democrat or Republican, like many he has issues that go between the parties. The purity test is killing the GOP, you have even said that….BTW I am from the rust belt, and Reagan was very big with working class Dems, cannot win without them.

The Eiger

You can drop the comparison to Reagan. Trump is no Ronald Reagan. Of course I have said the purity test will be the death of the republican party and we are seeing that with the rise of Donald Trump. Conservatives for hire have made money tearing down their own party by using purity tests and making false promises and now people are blinded by the shiny object that is Trump. Trump supporters are blinded from reason because they are all foaming at the mouth mad and they are just plain ignorant of the facts. Reagan spend decades helping get republicans… Read more »

The economy is actually doing pretty well. But of course the candidates talk it down so peoples perception is that it is worse than it really is.
http://money.cnn.com/2016/03/01/news/economy/us-economy-confidence/

Besides, what would Trump do? Prop up China’s economy? Raise oil prices?

A customer (blue collar) told me yesterday they had voted for Trump because they thought he could fix the economy. Of all the candidates, I think Trump is least likely to fix the economy for blue collar workers. Bizarro world.

Hillary will keep shelters in place for the rich, programs for fed workers, programs for Ag interests, millennials shelter from independence, abortion at genocide levels, free stuff for illegals and promise the poor anything she thinks they’ll believe. And, the scariest, turn Goldman-Sachs loose, carbon trading anyone?

“Ya darn tootin’, it’s time for lootin”

She now needs to promise the seniors (Fla) a bunch of stuff and it is case closed for the working middle class who can do nothing for her but pay.

All comes down to vote buying. Confuscious say, ” Whoever promise more free sh*t win erection!” We’re so screwed. If Trump wins and doesn’t deliver, Atlas will begin to Shrug. That is guaranteed.

The only solace I take in coming to grips with the eventuality that our next president will be either Clinton or Trump, is that the country has not ceased to exist under the helm of the current president.

For years the GOP has told us to suck it up and vote for whoever represents them in presidential elections. We as voters did and watched as 5 of the last 6 candidates lost the popular vote. Many of us voted for those candidates even though we were not all that thrilled with their policy ideas. Now here we are with an outside the party candidate winning 11 of the first 15 states. What does the GOP do? They scramble to get us to vote against the leader because he isn’t part of the inner click funded by all those… Read more »

No where in your post do you talk about supporting what Trump represents. His policy or statements about what he may do in office. You only talk about sticking it to the RNC. You have won. You and Trump have and will stick it to the man. He may even win in November and then your blinders will come off and you will see him for the liberal he is. Again……….. Don’t ever say that no one told you this would happen.

” They scramble to get us to vote against the leader because he isn’t part of the inner click funded by all those special interest groups.” Bullcrap. The anti-Trumpers don’t care about who he is or isn’t funded by. We want to vote against the leader because he’s a revolting human being who has never shown any real interest in anything other than glorifying his almighty self. Eiger points out that you don’t talk at all about supporting what Trump represents. Eiger is concerned about Trump the liberal. I’m not even that concerned about that. I mean sure it sucks,… Read more »
