1. That's too bad.

But that is really close. People will say that close doesnt count, but it does. Trump won this district by 12. The democrats shaved off nearly 10 points.

13. He is losing by a larger margin this time.

Not sure what he lost by last time with all the cheating being done by the good Preacher et al.

Secondly, looks like cheating pays sad as that is.

18. Dems will go crying into the night over this loss

but if the shoe were on the other foot (a solid blue district electing a Dem by only a few points) Republicans would be shouting from the rooftops that such tight numbers show the people are tired of the "far left Democrats".

In other words they'd spin a loss into a win.

We need to do the same, if for no other reason than to boost morale.

10. odd that cd #3 @94% reports approx 105,000 votes

while cd#9 @94% reports approx. 180,000 votes

hopefully the democrats campaign is making sure that over preforming rural area actual has that many peops

remember this revote is happening because the repubs were caught cheating last time

27. nc election site says they had 348,557 votes

https://er.ncsbe.gov/index.html?election_dt=09/10/2019&county_id=0&office=NCH&contest=0

186,928 were from cd9 race

which would leave 161,629 for cd #3

20. Trump won that district by 10 or 12 points, I believe.

Bishop is going to win by a couple of percentage points. So I think were still in good shape.

24. "Getting rid of Trump is not going be a walk in the park."

Sure won't be, because even if Dems come out en mass, I'm pretty sure russia will have yet another way to help their fascistic, treasonous, money-laundering, obese buddy get placed back into the White House.

And even in a more extreme measure, what if putin tells fatso to call off the 2020 elections? Who'll stop his fat ass? MoscowMitch & Lindsey the human anus will take a bullet for tRump (Lindsey would, not sure about MoscowMitch).

21. Trump will bray about this win incessantly.

Of course he will take credit for it because he held a rally and told his supporters to get out and vote for Bishop. Im disappointed, but I think its a reminder that beating Trump will not be a slam dunk. Well need to get out every vote possible and try to guard against Republican cheating.

said that it is just fine fine and dandy to condone past cheating, and to continue being bigots, basically..................while 48% said that it was not fine and dandy to cheat in the past election....................

us much better odds in 2020.
