"unconscionable influx of spending"

" Fewer polling hours in upstate NY" Where Nixon polled better

" Polling problems in NY City neighborhoods where Nixon polled strong"

In other words the Democratic Party bought the election and cheated for Cuomo.

Cynthia Nixon doesn't have any legislative or public policy experience.

That is true but, apparently the Democratic Party was taking no chances.

Maybe you should think about things like "why Donald Trump owns the Republican Party" and why his acolytes are winning primaries, and why White Nationalists and Nazis are winning Republican Primaries.

The problem is Democratic voters didn't take her seriously. It's as simple as that.

It's not easy for a celebrity to be taken seriously on the left. Al Franken had to do a ton of work to be taken seriously. He worked so hard at it he didn't crack a joke his entire first term.

On the right, Republicans are more easily duped, and they want bread and circuses. That's why they love celebrities. Reagan and now Trump.

Yep. What a stupid fucking thread this is. With all the very serious shit going on right now with Trump and his cult.

What the fuck do you care about infighting in the democratic party? Is Cynthia Nixon your hero? Poor Cynthia...boo fuckin' hoo.

Imagine one of us bemoaning the tragedy of Devin Nunes being gutted in a knife fight by Ted Yoho.

Glen, the charge you just made is ridiculous. Cuomo won 65% to 35%. Niggling about poll hours and problems isn't going to shift a rout.

Glen is attempting to equate a primary that had one candidate that stood little chance with voter suppression in elections between parties and the a voter suppressing Republican Party in particular. Attempting but failing.

glen needs to misdirect and redirect away from his Russian Backed Vassal. Who cares why Nixon lost. glen has zero credibility regarding politics.

Hey glen, how's "President Romney" doing these days....?

The election was not "rigged" against her.

She lost.

She might be learning a lesson about some of the Democratic primary electorate. We don't just care how progressive you proclaim your ideals are. We want to know, pragmatically, what you're going to accomplish in political office, and a plan for how. Oh, and what experience you will bring to bear on making that happen.

I think I am part of that electorate. ;)

I'm not Andrew Cuomo's biggest fan. But he needed a better, more experienced primary opponent.
