Where's their approval sitting at right now?
Currently averaging +6.5:Where's their approval sitting at right now?
Taking it as a given that they believe a lot of stupid shit -- and I happen to agree with you wholeheartedly that that's the case -- look what ignoring + denigrating them gets politicians? I'd dare say that while the majority of them may believe some stupid shit, that's not exactly a factor of differentiation between them and politicians. You can be smart, you can shit on the voters you need to win, but even career politicians should have figured out that you can't do both.I would just like to mention something about rural dwellers, considering that The Highwayman mentioned them. They may perform a vital function in society (food production), but having lived over 20 years among them, I'd just like to say that a lot of them.... are also some of the stupidest motherfuckers to ever disgrace this planet. I mean, if they were black instead of white, they'd almost certainly be members of New Age Posting.
These are people who think that God personally blesses their lottery tickets, that rewards cards are the "Mark of the Beast", who are willfully ignorant (and willfully illiterate - not "can't read", just "can't be assed to read even the most in-your-face signs"), blow all their money on scratch-off lottery tickets (then use their winnings to buy more), and are astoundingly ignorant about their own religion, despite insisting on shoving it down everyone's throats, Middle East-style.
And don't even get me started on the Amish, who are basically one big inbred cult that somehow mashes together the worst aspects of the Abrahamic religions with all the... well... everything of a certain religion founded by L. Ron Hubbard.
The polling tracker I posted was UPDATED DEC. 25, 2019, AT 9:12 AM.What Ancalagon isn't factoring in (surprise! Why would he?) is that the impeachment charade is visibly corrupt and is damaging Democrats' electoral chances in 2020. You can't swan dive off the deep end into an empty pool like that and expect anything good to come of it.
The massive improprieties of this process have been a disservice to the American people. If, in fact, there *was* evidence of improper conduct, as the House insist, why would they actively suppress that evidence, which is the only sensible reason to silence a purported witness?

The longer it's gone, the more oppose it. And how do you think that makes the hyper-partisan process look -- and those driving it?
Just re-read this and it reminded me of a quote by Mark Twain: "The man who does not read good books has no advantage over the man who cannot read them."These are people who... are willfully illiterate - not "can't read", just "can't be assed to read even the most in-your-face signs"...
