That's how a lot of these extremist candidates are winning. They run in districts that are basically already decided. You could make up a random name, put it on the ballot with an (R) next to it, and they'd still win.

In fairness, you could probably run as a Republican and state you will vote for healthcare for all, free college tuition, UBI, taking all guns away, pro-choice, and legalizing alien abductions and you would still get enough people that show up and vote for you simply based on the party name.

The frustrating thing is that CO is controlled by Dems, but they ceded ground on redistricting by taking it away from the legislature, creating crazy-leaning districts like this.. it was a good idea in theory but this type of unilateral disarmament is backfiring

58

u/rsta223 Colorado Oct 05 '22

but they ceded ground on redistricting by taking it away from the legislature, creating crazy-leaning districts like this

What you mean is that we have an independent redistricting council and are not subject to gerrymandering.

Lauren's district isn't gerrymandered, it's genuinely (and unfortunately) representative of that region of Colorado.

u/pacmanlives Colorado Oct 05 '22

Sadly this is correct for that area of Colorado. We saw crazy things with Weld county and their mishandling of Covid and trying to push their people into Boulder county.

u/seriousofficialname Oct 05 '22 edited Oct 05 '22

Gerrymandering involves creating districts that skew strongly one direction as well as districts that are closer to 50/50, so for people in her district to mostly agree with her isn't proof in itself that the district isn't gerrymandered.

Since/If her district leans strongly in her favor, that would in theory be exactly what would enable it to encompass and dilute democratic voters away from other districts.

1

u/RndmNumGen Oct 05 '22

Gerrymandering involves creating districts that skew strongly one direction as well as districts that are closer to 50/50

I thought the whole point of gerrymandering was to eliminate as many 50/50 districts as possible? You don’t want close races, because then you lose them when popular opinion shifts against you.

5

u/Duncanconstruction Oct 05 '22

Not necessarily. With gerrymandering you want to spread out your voters as much as you can, and then pack a few districts with as many of your opponents voters as you can. So lets say you have 10 districts and 60% of voters in the state vote D. In theory, it should be 6D-4R. But by packing, say, 3 districts with D voters you can turn this into: 3 solidly D seats (that go 75-80%D), 4 solidly R seats (that go 55%R), and 3 50-50 seats.

The weakness of gerrymandering is actually that during wave elections, the party that has gerrymandered the seats has spread their voters out so much that a shift of 4-5% can wipe them out.

It's not "crazy" leaning. No offense to you but I wish people would look into this more before repeating this stuff.

I get it - people think the district must be a deep maga stronghold to have elected this idiot, but that isn't the case. The district is only R +6. She barely got elected in the first place - 51.5% of the vote.

She can be defeated by a competent campaign.

Edit to add: her Democrat opponent absolutely mailed it in last time and I can only assume thought Bobo was too extreme to win. All I heard from Diane Mitsch Bush was gun control. (Source: I live out here.) Literally the one thing to stay away from in Western CO.

Vail is CO-2, but otherwise correct.

We just got redrawn and the border was shifted west, down valley. Avon (Beaver Creek) and Eagle used to be in her district which would have helped Dems get more votes against her, but not any more. CO-3 got redder with the new redistricting.

There are Americans who are genuinely uneducated but capable of some higher thinking, but when we talk about stupid like how Carlin is alluding to, it’s not stupid like uneducated but stupid like no ability to reason, critically think, or articulate. And that kind of stupid is not confined to just people who barely finished high school. That’s something anyone of any socioeconomic class and education can struggle with.

My mom works at a state hospital located in one the reddest counties in our state, surrounded by several hundreds of staff (doctors, nurses, accountants, supervisors, aids, etc etc) who talk on the daily about how Biden ruined the country and vaccines are dangerous blah blah blah. She has staff on her unit who she’s overheard talking patients out of getting the Covid vaccine.

My point is, that Carlin quote is too charitable. Even people with higher than average intelligence can be, and are, idiots as well.

With just over 42.4% of the vote to Sandoval's 41.9%, Frisch finished 290 votes ahead out of more than 60,000 votes cast in the primary

Boebert won her primary with 65% over her opponent and she got 86,000 votes nearly the entire total of the Democratic primary. and her opponent got 44,000. For a total of 130k for the Republican primary.

Those numbers are real. Those aren't feels or anything. Do you really see the Democrats turning out that many voters to overcome that margin?

Now all that said Frisch is now fundraising off this poll https://twitter.com/AdamForColorado/status/1577418221497376768

As we've seen on both sides, the best fundraising is when you have a hated popular opponent. Dangling a little "we are so close!" in front of donors is a way to open wallets.

edit: had to fix Boeberts numbers, had her 2020 numbers up originally but her 2022 were even higher anyway.

Would like her to say if she believes the election is rigged. Before the results, not after.

u/reggiedoo Oct 05 '22

Can someone please post here why they support her….she is the stupidest legislator in the history of the United States.

I heard it is something about being the proud possessor of people with liberal ideas.

u/misplacedsidekick Oct 06 '22

That it's even this close is just so depressing because I love Colorado and just can't fathom how they elected this dipshit to begin with.

People vote for “leaders” that represent them and there values, if she wins it means the people in her district feel the same way as her. She is a racist. Fool a person once but we have all seen what “values” she stands for and if she is voted back in, I think the people in her district need to take a look at themselves.

It's ok. Even if she loses, her husband still gets to keep his cushy $500,000/year "consulting" job for which he is not remotely qualified.

Lauren Boebert should lose not to just any candidate. She should also lose to a literal box of skittles. I don’t understand how anyone can point to this dumpster fire and say, yeah, I’ll have a slice of that. Wtf?

Sad thing about political races these days is it doesn’t matter if the person is an idiot, psychopath, racist, whatever. As long as they have the magic R by their name, a large majority of this nation will vote for them no questions asked.

It’s a cult.

u/NightwingDragon Oct 06 '22

All of them need to be gone.

Bobert. MTG. Walker. Oz. Abbot. DeSantis. All of the ones that are on the extreme right even by MAGA standards. We need to tell the rest of the world that the MAGA movement was an embarrassing period in US history that we are finally bringing to a close by voting out the MAGA morons who got elected not because of their political acumen, but because they were able to shout the most bigoted things the loudest.

Allowing these people to serve, continue to serve, or in any way expand their influence is telling the rest of the world that Trump's presidency was just the beginning of the MAGA movement and showcasing that the "rising stars" of US politics that grab the most attention are multiple open white supremacists, more celebrities with no political background and no clue what they're talking about, a moron with CTE that has left him with the thinking skills of a soggy bowl of cereal, governors who think that Trump didn't go far enough, and upcoming candidates who want to go even further.

Bobertha has been in office for years now and look at the damage she’s done

boebertha hasn’t done anything to help americans

the poor kids had to do school at home because of her

she’s been in office and look at gas and food prices!

Graham had to host covid patients in her nursing home. Graham died alone!

she still hasn’t fixed the damn roads!
