Did Democrats' Blue Wave Crash On The Shores Of Ohio?

UNITED STATES- MAY 3 Don Blankenship who is running for the Republican nomination for Senate in West Virginia conducts a town hall meeting at Macado's restaurant in Bluefield Tom Williams CQ-Roll Call Group

Perhaps surprisingly, the most enthusiastic voters on each side are a bit less wedded to issue purity: 61% of Democrats who are very enthusiastic about voting say they want candidates who agree with their views, and on the GOP side, that figure stands at 70%.

Cost is their top priority...

In the race for the Center seat on the Board of County Commissioners, Republican incumbent Jeff Good took 6,593 votes; Democrat Donna Perdue got fractionally more, 6,650. Democratic voters will still receive a Democratic primary ballot and Republican voters will still receive a Republican primary ballot, as always.

Tuesday's numbers can't be compared directly to 2016's, said Mike Dawson, a Republican strategist and expert on OH elections statistics. "So support for the president will help Republican candidates turn out their base, but the job of Republicans in the general election is to target swing voters who want to hear something else other than about President Trump".

Now, Braun's setting the table for Trump's visit with hefty praise for the president's tax cuts.

Democrat voters in the 4th District will also vote for the district's next constable.

If there is a silver lining to the Trump presidency, it's that the election of the Misogynist-in-Chief has inspired record numbers of women to run for office.

Despite the outsider image and blitz of TV advertising, Braun was dogged by his lengthy history voting as a Democrat in IN primary elections.

Google Duplex to disclose its true nature
A neural network that Google developed two years ago can detect evidence of diabetic retinopathy using just the images of the eye. The receiver was a non-native English speaker, and there were several misunderstandings that Google Duplex resolved smoothly.


Yet at the same time, the Democratic Party as a whole is ideologically moving further to the left on issues such as the Second Amendment and social justice while doubling down on the #Resistance movement. In fact, the Democratic Party's favorability rating has gone down since Trump became president, as Americans have generally grown more exhausted of partisan politics. Using the Cook Political Report rankings of districts as "solidly", "likely" or "leaning" toward one or another political party, they found that while all seven of the female incumbents are in "safe" districts for them, just one of the female nonincumbents - Republican Carol Miller, in West Virginia - is in a district considered favorable for her party.

In an interview with the Boston Globe, she said, "We will win".

Voters can mail in their ballots, drop them off at the Elections Office at 555 Escobar St.in Martinez, or drop them off at designated drop boxes countywide starting on May 14.

Mainstream prevails in OH: A populist-oriented swing state that Trump won easily in 2016, OH could have been welcoming ground for fiery rebels on the left and the right. Lewisville residents will also cast their vote in the Justice of the Peace, Precinct 3 Republican race between James Kerbow and William Lawrence.

A key to Trump's message will be energizing low-propensity Republican voters in 2018, many of whom turned out for the first time in years to vote for him. In the Democrat primary, Rob Richardson received 841 votes. Democrat Liz Watson, a former congressional staffer, eclipsed two other candidates with 66% of the vote in Tuesday's primary.

Kondik says the national insider-outsider narrative may be overplayed with both parties, "though I do think it's more of a real thing on the Republican side than the Democratic side".

Voters in Boone, Marion, Newton and Searcy counties will also vote in the Court of Appeals Associate Judge District 02, Position 01 race between Court of Appeals Judge Bart Virden and Johnnie Copeland. "It doesn't happen often and it's interesting", he said.
