    Sorry Charlie. Dems don't vote in off year elections. 2018 looks dismal for their prospects of taking the senate if they don't take it this year.

    When was the last time AL voted dem for president? What are the odds that Trump will lose the state this year? And, what are the odds that it will be the tipping point state?
    @stevena198301 has ZERO reason to vote for Donald. He may be younger but he's obviously better at math than you.

    I still think that there could be surprises how states go this year maybe not AL but..... I posted an article about how the Dems feel that they must humiliate Trump to seal their fate. Not just win but a landslide victory. I understand the concept and the message that would send so don't you think the same could apply to a Trump victory??? Think about it this way, if Trump wins by landslide over the Dem darling, don't you think they will be forced to change their choice of candidates if they want to win in the future??? Especially if Trump does a medicore job just shades better than Obama...

    In this election I beleive that every vote counts where in the past, maybe not so much. 2008 I lived in IL as a registered Dem (matters in the local elections) and voted Dem ballot in the primary hoping to help sway the vote away from Obama. 2012 I lived in IN as a registered Dem (same local reason) but voted Rep ballot in the primary same as this year. Trump was not my first choice but won the nomination. The point is your votes send a message and in this election I feel that it is important to send that message to both parties and the best way to do that is a vote for Trump regardless how the state will ultimately end up. It is a hope that the parties will take heed and trot out better candidates in the future.

    They won't win if they stalmate the SC vote for 4 years. The ammo the left will have over them not doing their sworn duty would by and large probably cost them the majority and the presidency no matter how bad she skunks it up. Look how many are supporting her now with all the criminal evidence, health issues, and running on a continuation of Obama policies.... The rep party got its message in the primaries, the dems need theirs in the election by showing the differences in the popular vote. IL has taken the vote with 54% Dem in three of the last 5 elections with 61 and 57 in the last 2. Even if it doesn't go red a 50ish % number would show a downturn in approval for their candidates......

    Just better hope every vote gets counted, for what it was cast, and fewer dead folks vote.....whether they 'count' or not.

    Nope and nada, if she wins it will mean millions of refugee's flooding this nation and a right to vote coming with that soon after, they already own the lower courts so a hung SC means nothing if the lower courts rules in their favor, you will never see another (R) in the White House, those south of the border vote socialist and love voting socialist and then run to America to make money and send it back south all the while hating us for the problems they themselves cause.

    Look to Venezuela, that is what is coming here next, it is breaking down with protest in the streets and people starving, that starving can only go on so long and a breaking point will be reached and a flood of refugees will come pouring north to the U.S. voting for the same form of government they had there, only its better because it a democratic form of socialism.

    America is always changing, this is a forced change against the will of many Americans, this is another reason Trump is where he is at, hillary should be blowing him out of the water, his running for President should have been a joke of an contest but its not, no matter how hard the corrupt media tries, those darn uneducated voters don't know whats good for them.

    "A forced change against the will of many Americans". So, if a majority votes for the democrat, is the supposed "forced will" any ideologically different then if a republican wins and forces that idealism on many Americans? Frankly, this is all BS IF you believe the founding fathers felt that the direction of the country should be based upon the will of the people, as a majority of which votes. And who are these uneducated voters? Are then simply anyone who disagrees with a particular persons point of view? That might mean that uneducated is both liberal and conservative, based upon which side is viewing the other side.

    What is more likely the truth, based upon what likely will still be a pathetic voter turnout, is that many Americans, if not most Americans, apparently don't really care who gets elected. Does this make them uneducated or do they simply have apathy. Neither political side is likely to really pound their chest as say that they have a mandate. All this hysteria is ridiculous because first all, things aren't really that bad in this country regardless of how folks wish to portray it. Things could be better, but frankly, things won't get better regardless of who gets elected. The real political race is no longer about the White House, and hasn't been for many weeks now. The important races are in Congress and all this huffing and puffing about the White House is just fluff.

    I agree to an extent with the sole difference is that only the president nominates SC justices..... That for me is the game changer. My feeling is Trump will nominate justices that are more right centered than Hillary will and those that will support our rights.
