That's elections everywhere, I suppose. You more of a Podemos person?

I think PSOE will win the election and officially hold more seats than the PP, while getting C&S from Unidos Podemos. And yet polling is showing the big three parties (PP, Cs, and Unidos Podemos) lagging behind while Vox has made big gains and is just behind Unidos Podemos. Well, that's because...

The leader of Israel's largest trade union has joined the Gantz party. This is turning into quite a big tent, which will either sweep Gantz to power, or lead to the party disintegrating in a hilarious and catastrophic fashion in a couple of years' time. Or both. Israel being what it is, I can see b...

¡Voto Plus Ultra!(A Spanish Election Thread)

Hey, don't blame me for making all these, blame the Cortes, they started it. Anyway... Back on Wednesday, February 13, the Spanish government, which didn't have a majority of support in the Congress of Deputies, saw its budget bill go down in flames. The PSOE government has only been in power for ei...

Well, a brief poll update shows Zelensky is now well ahead after his platform's become better known, averaging 10 points above Poroshenko. Admittedly, I'm still not a fan of online voting myself, nor do I think getting rid of income taxes and replacing them with capital gains taxes is a good idea(wh...

I feel bad, in some respects, for Mr. Singh. He's clearly genuine, well-meaning and authentic, but his ability to resonate with voters has been near null. I admire many aspects of his platform, but damn, with the NDP, it's just one step forward and four steps backwards in regards to communicating t...

Therm and I were comparing her Native background to her chances of being elected. Neither one of us is going to vote/not vote for her, based purely, or even partially, on her Native American background, or lack thereof. I also thought that Therm was joking, considering the Wiener-Holder meme. Serio...

Well, the Liberals did manage to survive Sponsorgate 15 years ago, at least at first, but I'm not sure that Trudeau is made from the same stuff that Chretien is or even his father was. He was already slumping and nearly equal with Scheer in the polls before this, I'm thinking we could see a Conserv...

My preference is for Tzipi Livni and Hatnuah. I've liked her for a long time, and strongly agree with her position on Palestine (ie, get a two-state solution in place and resolve this fucking conflict already). Yeah. Resolving that is not going to happen. Getting an actual majority of the Israel Pa...

I wouldn't go so far as to say he was stabbing the First Nations in the back, merely that he's getting rid of a prosecutor who was on to him. So he's being corrupt and violating federal ethics. Either way it's hurting him and his government. I still think he will be in power come October but with e...

Does he want to be sent to the guillotine? Because "let them eat cake" is peanuts compared to "let them eat motherfucking wildfires and hurricanes".


Nah, it would be more 1917 rather than 1793 IMO.

Not likely, I'm afraid. Likud's averaging 31 seats in the polls with Hosen L'Yisrael second at 20. Netanyahu will lead yet again.

Whats bad about Harris? She is a Democrat Well, Therm does have a point. Her record as a prosecutor on both local and state levels has been fairly draconian, particularly on drugs, and what he said about her refusing to release an innocent man is also true. Yes, she fought for some reforms, but her...

If Schultz doesn't run Trump has literally no hope of winning. Now now, the fact that Trump is President at all should be a reminder never to overestimate the voters. Complacency would be a bad idea. No one's saying be complacent. We do, however, have good grounds to believe that we can win next ye...

Centre-right at most. Current government is indeed unpopular (then again, they usually are). Greens could...

I know very little about Finnish politics, but as always I hope that the nationalists will lose. If I remember right, the party that used to call itself True Finns has gotten a lot bigger in the last decade. Reactionary, authoritarian, pseudo-populist nationalism is metastasizing in Europe at an al...
