Shapiro is so awful. It saddens me that so many young men are exposed to this piece of shit. A friend's 17-year old son quoted him recently and I just wanted to cry.

Gallup shows a big swing in Trump's approval. Will be interesting to see how that filters out, and how long it lasts.

I think we're entering a situation where there is no more gray zone. In the tussle between the left and right being played out in the media daily, the diehard Trump supporters grow stronger in faith of him with the opposite effect on the left. Those stuck in the middle are forced to choose. I still think Trump is just a major symptom and something much worse may be in store down the road, God forbid.

What we need is the voiceless independants to grow stronger and gain a voice. The duopoly system is going to be the downfall of us all.

I'll be honest, the critiques of the duopoly are tiring and not helpdul. We have a two party system as a natural byproduct of SMD, first past the post voting system. If you want to do away with a duopoly, you need to start talking constitutional convention (not happening). Reforms are needed in a multitude of areas, but third parties aren't the path.

It will still be a duopoly. The equilibrium of this electoral system is two strong parties (e.g., Tories and Labour in the UK). Getting money out of it will help in some ways at the margins, but it won't change the basic dynamics.

What would? Larger voter turnout, particularly from young voters.

To me the main lesson here is a familiar one: if the American progressive movement places all of its hopes in the executive and the judiciary, rather than in trying to win the legislative houses, it will lose more often than it wins.

This is true, particularly at the state and local level where progressives do a totally shit job competing in recent history. Progressives need to vote consistently, and even when they don't love the Democratic candidate. That will a) allow them to put people in place and develop a progressive bench influencing the party and growing into larger roles; and b) force Democrats more generally to respond to their policy objectives more favorably. It's great to show up every 4 years, but if politicians cannot expect and or don't have to respond to your desires in midterms that limits the weight they will have in policy making.

I also think we need to nuke lifetime appointments for federal judges, but that's a much larger conversation. I think a SCOTUS appointee should happen every 2 years (allowing for replacement when circumstances require in some fashion). That allows individual justices to have a long appointment that separates them from political fervor of the moment, but also forces the court to simultaneously respond to the political climate of the day and not the random luck of a POTUS that gets multiple appointments in short order.

Of course, it will be very interesting to see what happens in the coming year(s). While Roe v. Wade, gay marriage, etc. are hot topics on the right ... I'm not sure the GOP is as keen to gut/eliminate Roe v. Wade as its rhetoric suggests. It's a good campaign issue for them now ... take that away, and animate folks to elect officials to reinstate abortion rights and they may be making an already problematic demographic situations much worse.
