  • Has there ever been a LIVING US President who did not run for a second term in office? Who? (Note the word Living)?

    Best answer: The last sitting president to not run for reelection was LBJ, who died in 1973. Johnson had achieved extraordinary success domestically when he filled out the remainder of Kennedy's term and with his first term but by 1968 he had been terribly damaged by the escalating war in Vietnam.

    Best answer: The last sitting president to not run for reelection was LBJ, who died in 1973. Johnson had achieved extraordinary success domestically when he filled out the remainder of Kennedy's term and with his first term but by 1968 he had been terribly damaged by the escalating war in Vietnam. He decided not to run for reelection. Since then, every sitting president has decided to run for reelection she eligible, and all of them, except for Ford, Carter, and George HW Bush, have won a second term.

  • If the democrats don't gain any seats in the November midterms, or even lose a few, what will that signify?

    Best answer: For the Senate, it means that the numbers were just too much and the Republican won all of the close contests. In the Senate only one-third of the seats (33 or 34 states) are up for regular election. While there will be at least one and maybe three special elections for the Senate, they are all in the states that... show more
    Best answer: For the Senate, it means that the numbers were just too much and the Republican won all of the close contests. In the Senate only one-third of the seats (33 or 34 states) are up for regular election. While there will be at least one and maybe three special elections for the Senate, they are all in the states that are having regular elections. Depending upon who may die or step down this year, the Republicans are only defending 8-10 seats and only one of those are in a state that Clinton won in 2016. The Democrats are defending 26 seats, many of them in states that Trump won by a large margin. So you could have a big national swing to the Democrats and still have Republicans knocking off Democratic incumbents in the Senate. For example, assume that the Democratic candidate does 5% better than Clinton, and the Republican candidate does 5% worse than Trump, the Democrats would lose 5 Senate seats that they currently have and Republicans would lose three (or 4) that they currently have -- a net of swing of two.

    On the other hand, assuming that same swing in the House (which is about what current polls are estimating and is consistent with the voting in 2017 special elections), the Republicans would lose at least thirteen seats -- and probably more since some of their wins in 2016 were by incumbents who have decided to retire significantly over-performing in lean Democrat districts. So for the Republicans to gain seats in the House something significant has to change between now and November -- say bombing North Korea or Iran. (Before you say that polls can't be trusted, nationally the final polls were only 1 or 2 % off, well within the margin of error. The problem in 2016 was not with the polls, but with idiot reporters who did not think about what a 1-2% error in favor of Trump would mean for the electoral college. For the Republicans to gain house seats in 2018, there would have to be a huge problem with the polls.)

  • Why did bush supporters vote for trump and not for jeb, carson or others?

    Best answer: I'm not sure that George W bush supporters did vote for Trump, at least at first. Remember that most Republican primary voters voted against Trump. He only got about 40% of the vote In the End. Early on he was getting even less of the vote about a quarter to a third of it. Ironically, the anti Trump... show more

    Ironically, the anti Trump Republicans end up being hurt by their wealth of options. The Republicans feel that incredibly broad field of candidates in 2016, many of whom would have made credible presidential candidates. That ended up being a problem however because opposition to Trump could never coalesce behind one single candidate. It didn't help that the most popular non Trump candidate was Ted Cruz who had spent the last several years systematically alienating most power brokers in the party.

  • Do you think people with severe intellectual disabilities should be allowed to vote?

    So severe that they about understand as much as a young child or maybe a preteen, or just don't understand what is going on. I think not because if they are allowed to vote and understand as much as a child then why not allow children to vote??

  • Should California be given more electoral votes?

    Best answer: If California was put on the same level as Wyoming, the least populated State, which has 3 electoral votes and 1 Electoral Vote for every 159,867 people. That would result in California getting 207 Electoral Votes, and it would also result in Texas getting 125 Electoral Votes. Just to let you know if every... show more

    Just to let you know if every States was placed on the same level as Wyoming, that is 1 vote for every 159,867 people, Trump would have gotten 926 Electoral Votes and Hillary would have gotten 750. So it might not make any difference.
