    1. Years ago mud slinging in politics was expected. Now it is extremists against extremists and it has torn this country apart. Anybody who is of sane mind and body have seen the republicans self destruct. They don’t even want to help out their constituents. As a former Republican RED IS DEAD!!!
      Republicans have become psychotic preachers of anti-American values. This behavior must be voted out of office. The same goes for the wackos from the far left. The middle of road thinkers need to step up their efforts to heal this country.

    2. @The Paradox Destroyer But do these polls really show us WHERE these 28% exist? .. i cannot believe it’s the same ratio all across the country… while corners like Arizona or Colorado seem to be Nutjob Central and Florida and Texas were always extreme… what about the true swing states where it never was dominated by a GOP hardcore of almost 40% regardless what happened in the election…

    3. @Lotta Sunshine I was planning a Myrtle beach golf excursion to your state. I think we will go somewhere more sane like Iran or North Korea.

    4. @Ugly German Truths Jawohl, herr Deutschlander. I am sure there is an unequal distribution of people engrossed in conspiracy theories. I do not believe the poll released how the participants were spread out though it stands to reason there are areas of concentration just as there is a divide between rural and urban voters. As for swing states, who knows. What will be interesting is how conspiracy theories will influence the upcoming elections and if the Democrats can successfully use that issue to drive a wedge between the Republicans and independents.

    5. @Mac Mcleod
      There’s a difference between the extremism of both parties. Only 27%od Dems are far left. While the center of the Party has to deal with them, they do not have to cave to them.
      The GTP is 53% far right extremists. They control GTP.
      Who’s whackjobs have the most power ?

    1. There are other local elections going on, not just in NM. We voted here in Texas’ early local election yesterday (5 June 2021 is election day). Do your part! Vote, America. VOTE.

    2. @Martian Technology Democracy as a concept describes how evenly political power is distributed across the population. If you are going to be pedantic you have to be accurate.

    3. @Martian Technology Please tell that to the autocrats running the Republican party so that they can return to ethical principles.

  1. The fact that he knows like every district in the country and it’s politics is impressive. Takes me back to seventh grade when I was the nerdiest kid in geography class

    1. @Dopeamiine 2022 and 2024…FIGHT LIKE OUR LIVES DEPEND ON IT BECAUSE IT DOES!!! Just say no to making Handmaids Tale a reality.

  2. Election question for all the maga supporters…
    If the ballots were fraudulent and they are the same ballots used for down-ticket elections, then shouldn’t all of the republicans who won in 2020 also be brought into question?
    Or is that not on your radar.

    1. @sofakings2pid Does LIE stand for “Low intelligence excuses”? Cause they have TONS of those… starting with basically everything their Citrusfruit in chief says a day after he said something horribly insulting OR painfully stupid inf front of fifty+ cameras 😉

    2. @John Clarke I don’t need to be paid to speak the truth. I wouldn’t stalk your azz for love or money.

  3. Unlike these other TV faces that show up in new clothes every day (notable exception being Rachel Maddow) he is someone who has no issue wearing the same pair of pants consistently. I like that, a normal guy.

    1. Dude he has like a dozen pairs of those pants. He ain’t wearing the exact same pants every day

    1. There has been recent reporting already that 4% of Registered Republicans in AZ have changed their voter registrars from Republican to Independent and in some cases, Democrat.

      4% doesn’t sound like much, but it’s enough to hand most counties to Democrats in future elections.

      In AZ, Democrats currently enjoy a 9 point advantage over Republicans in regards to registered voters. I don’t know if Gerrymandering or voter suppression will be enough for Republicans to cheat there way through those numbers.

    2. ​@Jeremy Backup It does, because a 4 point swing adds an 8 point gap. Thank you for this.

    3. @Opera Singer Its pretty significant, given how completely and utterly deranged average GQP voter is.

  4. People are waking up to recognize all the lies the Republicans tell & have started to move back to “sane town” by voting Democratic.

    1. @WARRIOR.OF.GOD LOL – Yes, and check all the chickens to make sure they haven’t eaten any ground up ballots!

    2. @Brihaspati Dattatreya Satan does not exist, neither do moral Trump voters. Chasing phantasms like the stolen election or “Trickle Down economics” while shutting your eyes from the reality like Climate Change, systemic racism and consistent criminal behavior from the right wing elected officials is not a healthy way to exist. And it will harm you as much or more as those which you hate for not being deluded in the same way. (or worse “others”/minorities)

  5. democrats have proven we are going to embrace voting as a pillar of our culture going forwards. no amount of voter suppression will stop us from voting blue, well, in most states at least.

    1. Except unless HR1 is passed, it won’t matter who you vote for. Republicans will simply throw out the votes and pick their winner.

  6. Yay NM, we did it! I made sure everyone I knew went out and voted. We were NOT going to be the reason for a shift in the House.

  7. What scares me is the fact nearly 50 thousand people voted for him, even if I were the most rabid conservative I could not vote for my party with the lies that have spewed forth since November

    1. Only way WE THE PEOPLE WILL HAVE A SAY SO!!! IF WE GET INTO SOME GOOD TROUBLE REST IN PARADISE CONGRESS MR. JOHN LEWIS RIGHTS BILL PASSES AND THE HR1 BILL FOR THE PEOPLE’S ACT BILL OTHERWISE WE’RE GOING TO SEE WHAT THE GOP IS TRYING TO SUCCEED IN DOINGSUPPRESS OUR VOTETRYING TO MAKE WE THE PEOPLE HAVE NO VOICE!! BECAUSE THE GOP IS GOING TO CLAIM!! “fraud” THAT’S WHEN THEIR APPOINTEE OF JUDGES COME IN TO OVERTURN OUR VOICESI REALLY DON’T DON’T BELIEVE WHAT THEIR DOING IS CONSTITUTIONAL AND IT SHOULDBE AGAINST THE LAW SO NON AMERICANIS THIS APART OF THEE AMERICAN CONSTITUTION? IF SO GOD HELP US ALL

    2. If you are of sane mind and body and have determined RED IS DEAD, then blue is the only choice for the future!!

    3. @Kevin Lee you are so delusional. Grow up!! if you cannot tell the difference between rt and wrong you need a lot of anti-psychotic drugs!!!!

  8. What I’m hoping for is 12 seats in the Senate. Ten to overcome a filibuster, the other two to overcome the two DINOs, manchin and Cinema! Hey, I Can Dream, can’t I?!

  9. This is the blowback Republicans will experience if they keep running on lies and outrageous conspiracy theories.

  10. I live in SC and might take a drive to MTG’s district if I can help next year. (as long as that’s legal, which I believe it is) Of course I’m not talking about voting in GA, but helping to get out the vote.

  11. I live in this NM district. When I went to vote yesterday, it seemed amusing to fill in just ONE circle on the ballot. Deb Haaland becoming Sec. of the Interior is a fantastic reason to vote for another Democrat to fill her Congressional seat!
