And remember, this Administration of boobs retains the support of over a third of Americans.

No matter that policies the Administration pushes are actually opposed by large portions of its "base ", they still retain their support.

No matter the cruelty they willingly inflict on other people disturbs large portions of their "base", they still retain their support.

No matter how unqualified they continue to show themselves to be, no matter how venal they are, they retain the support of their "base".

The governments of Italy, Japan, Germany, Tuvan, Finland, Norway and the Soviet Union all had the near complete support of the national populations base in the 1920s through 1940s.

Re: Texas eliminating polling stations
There are a few things wrong with some of that. For example, the map shows that along the river the number of voters per polling site increased in some areas from an average of 1000 voters per sit to 7000 voters per site. That's believable but not because sites were closed. The area along the river has seen explosive population growth over the last several decades just as it has seen a major demographic age change. The Rio Grande Valley has long been one of the more liberal parts of Texas but also has seen an influx of winter Texans becoming permanent Texans.

Re: Krugman on Wisconsin and Permanent Minority Rule
Surprise????????????????????

And if the US death toll directly attributed to covid-19 is less than a million then the Orange Menace will declare that it was a hoax all along designed to topple his Presidency and that the liberal socialist communists need to go.

And his sycophant fellow travelers will all agree and shout "Lock them up!!!!!!!!!!"

And it's possible that they will.
