  1. U MEAN AFTER THR TWO DEEPSTATE FALSE FLAG SHOOTINGS RIGHT LYING LAWRENCE? EXACTLY RIGHT AND TRUMP IS NOT GOING TO HAVE THE DEEPSTATE TAKE AWAY OUR SECOND AMENDMENT RIGHTS BECAUSE THATS WHY THESE FALSE FLAG SHOOTINGS WERE DONE TO BLAME OUR PRESIDENT AND TO TRY AND TAKE OUR SECOND AMENDMENT AWAY THERE NWO AGENDA.NEVER GOING TO HAPPEN NOW WE NEED MORE GUNS TO PROTECT OURSELVES AND FAMILIES FROM PEOPLE BEING USED WITH MENTAL ILLNESSES.

  2. The astounding thing is that 40 plus percent of Americans still support Rump despite his many crimes, his emptying of their bank accounts and his pandering to the USA's enemies. This same 40 percent seem keen to have Rump installed as president for life.

  3. THE TIME FOR PLAYING STUPID GAMES IS OVER THE LEFT HAS A LOT OF HEAVY LIFTING TO DO! THE RIGHT WING CON's WILL NOT ALLOWING CONgress TO SECURE OUR VOTING SYSTEM! WITCH MEAN's THEY ARE PLANING TO STEAL THE UPCOMING ELECTION THE SAME WAY THEY DID IN 2016

  4. For me its mainly policy, but ALSO the fear of a Trump re-election.
    One thing I feel in my heart, is Biden is NOT the one to defeat Trump. I have a feeling Trump would trounce him.
    There's one, however, (maybe two) I believe would handle the job with ease.

  5. Trump is like a cushion, he bears the impression of the last person to sit on him. This time it's the NRA, next time……who knows?

  6. As long as democraps wish to destroy our freedoms and all that we have worked for, the nation must and should remain Divided!

  7. I doubt the accuracy of the poll statistics. I can not believe Joe Biden is the leading figure, when there are some new candidates with new solutions and plans for the mess Humpty Dumpty tRump is going to leave behind him.

  8. Our economy is the best it's ever been,you have more opportunities to do what you want any job you want in American history ! But your worried about trump ! Are you insane! The only people that talks about slavery hittler Russian agents natzies White supremacists hittler homaphob xenaphob sexists. Is democrates and fake CNN and MSNBC ABC Hollywood ! Why do you think they devide the races and genders? So they can put everyone against everything! Notice it's blacks,gays,lesbians,women,then you call every speech they don't like ,hate speech then they call everything you say or policy or person or subject they don't like ,racist! Trump says all Americans! We're do you think you get all this racist and devision and hate from! Fake news ,that's all they talk about 24/7 7 days a week! 3 years , just go back and look ! I hope your all really not this ignorant ! Russian agent. Kavanaugh women jussie smollet the Indian and boy impeachment white supremacists hates gays hate blacks hates women hates Hispanics hates LGBT ! Now there saying he's a chinnese agent ! WTF lmmfao ! Do you see any pattern here ! Lol ! Your really can't be that dumb?

  9. We will need a huge, enormous landslide, because Mitch McConnell and Putin are already working to rig this 2020 election. Even then, I have my doubts. Pardon my cynicism, but until Moscow Mitch and Putin's Gimp are gone I am deeply sceptical.

  10. Fear of losing our democracy. Fear of the damage Trump is doing to our international relations. Fear of the seeds of hate Trump has been planting inside our own country.

  11. What Rachael fails to comprehend or cover in her analysis is that Democrats, lead by Nancy Pelosi and Charles Schumer are both secretly supportive of Trump. Moreover, The Dems in general are content to win national elections by thin margins which is why there is no effort from the Democratic Party to register new voters. They believe that winning elections by thin margins will keep them in complete power obviating the need to share power with a new constituency of Black and Brown people. Please note Nancy Pelosi's comment about the "squad" (the four minority congresswomen); Ms. Pelosi said and I quote : "They are only four (4) votes." That simply says it all. Regrettably such an approach virtually guarantees Trump will be re elected !!!!!

  12. Republicans most of your comrades have to go,Moscow mitch and his crooked wife Betsy devises and her arms dealer husband, NRA says yes to killing your children with assault weapons

  13. trumpy has to run…its the only way he can avoid Epstein"s fate. Run donny run…coward like you should be a good runner…trim the bonespurs first though and try not to trip over that long lying nose.

  14. Vote for the Orange POS in 2020 n u are voting for America to FOLD UP & DIE. Trump WILL run America into the ground as he is doing now because he IS the Prince of Thieves & White Trash – everything he does will be to create MORE destruction as he has done so far. If u DON'T want America to die, VOTE HIM OUT!!!

  15. Guns will forever be the most contentious issue in the United States, even more so than Abortion. The question will NEVER be settled. I wonder, sometimes, if the Gun issue is really about our ability to defend ourselves and our loved ones against home invaders and other criminals, as the most common argument goes … or if it is, at it's most basic level, -that we don't trust our own Government, and expect to, someday, rebel against a new tyranny as we did in 1776. Happy Hunting!

  16. She must be nuts!!! Only an elitist can come to this conclusion!!! Do you see the tens of thousands of people he draws to his rallies THREE YEARS after the election with thousands more outside watching on huge TVs???!!! No other candidate in modern history – Republican or Democrat – has ever done this before!!! I am not a big Trump fan but I can't vote for any of the Dems who want to give free health care to illegals when my family struggles to pay the higher premiums and deductibles bec. of Obamacare!!! They are nuts too!!!!

  17. These people are so clueless…of course we want policy, lack of popular policy is the reason we got Into this mess in the first place

  18. Amy McGrath from Kentucky, is a member of the Air Force, and wants to Ditch Mitch, where she is no going after Senator Mitch McConnell

  19. What more does African-Americans have to fear? If that's your only strategy to fire up Black Voters, you're looking at another 4 Years of Trump.

  20. Inheriting the chaos left in traitor trumps wake will take a younger, stronger person than Mr.Biden Or Mr.Sanders…they will need a lot of stamina….Mr.Biden and Mr. Sanders should be given jobs to assist the new Democratic president…the republicans will attempt to sabotage all efforts to undo the damage traitor trump has done..

  21. 10% of Americans don't want ANY gun control measures, 90% of Americans want some common sense gun control measures and yet Congress and the President won't act on this issue. What happened to representative Democracy? Make your voices heard in the next election – VOTE BLUE IN 2020. Put an end to this nonsense!

  22. Sanders + Warren = Biden. 29% to 29%. The only thing that is keeping Biden afloat is the fact that there are two progressive candidates.

  23. TEN PERCENT ?!!? About ten percent of your country are heavily armed, authoritarian, racist, nazi thugs that fully intend to take over your country by any means necessary and force their will on the other ninety percent. They are currently infiltrating your police departments, your military, town & county councils and state legislatures. They do not need a majority to carry out their plan because their plan has nothing to do with democracy but rather total control by brute force. You will need to do something sooner or later. When that day comes, you will have two options:
    1) Eradicate them
    2) Succumb to them
    Your fathers, grandfathers and great grandfathers chose to eradicate them across Europe in 1945. What will you choose to do here, now?

  24. Rachel Bitecofer's forecast model is based on race and racism. She's a scammer and a race-baiter which makes her the perfect MSNBC pundit.

  25. Looking at those poll numbers, I thought it looks like maybe the GOP will next be going after women's right to vote. After you stop laughing, remember what we already know where they stand on other women's issues. It's just a matter of time.

  26. The American people need to wake up to Moscow Mitch McConnell Russian asset blocking all election security bills to protect our election system. Is possible if this continues that you may wake up one morning and have Russian agents knocking or storming your home to arrest you for owning a gun. You can thank Moscow Mitch McConnell Russian asset for this. If you want to live under a dictatorship do nothing, but if you value your freedoms now is the time to put maximum pressure on Moscow Mitch McConnell Russian asset bring the bills to the floor for a vote. To protect what we have. The next step is to replace Moscow Mitch McConnell Russian asset in 2020 he is nothing but a crook “ A Russian company with ties to the Kremlin made a major investment in a new mill in Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell's home state of Kentucky weeks after McConnell killed sanctions on Russia, according to the Washington Post” and our biggest obstacle for many bipartisan bills. Another topic Leningrad Lindsey Graham needs to be replaced he is nothing but a senate rule-breaker and a protector of Trump. Kentucky and North Carolina, you can fix this problem VOTE THEM OUT IN 2020. Pass background checks NOW! Also, ban weapons of war.

  27. Consider that 8% of the American adult population has a felony on their record is it any real surprise that 10% would be against background checks that would restrict their ability to buy a gun?

  28. Holding group conciousness together through scandals… holding the greatest nation together through scandals?

    We love a good scandal… do you love a scandal more than privacy and security?

    Rumor or malicious gossip about scandalous events or actions and the outrage or anger caused by a scandalous action or event along with an action or event regarded as morally or legally wrong and causing general public outrage is the clear definition of a scandal. 

    A war on religion — killing God would cause public outrage for people who believe in God, politicizing how it's being done would likely cause an uproar!

    Denying that it's being done openly would probably cause disbelief in the people doing it, which has been brewing for a thousands of years! I'd say someone made their own bed and is now realizing it's a sty in the eye of God but who? We'd have to look through all of history to determine what caused the war on religion.

    In the age of the internet and the internet being the third eye of the world projecting the conciousness of the world — each individual depending on how they benefit from what they gather from the internet will likely use that information to benefit a cause. If the cause happens to be a polical or religious cause the support backing that cause will become the fuel for the cause!

    Life is the existence of an individual human being or animal, the condition that distinguishes animals and plants from inorganic matter, including the capacity for growth, reproduction, functional activity, and continual change preceding death.

    Our individual thoughts and perspectives are our life and what fuels us on an indivual level or collectively as a group, the human race!

    How we perceive money, how we preceive relationships in general, how we motivate change in our lives are all personal to each individual or group of individuals. How we preceive time and the amount of time in which it takes to change these important factors in our lives is determined by those subconscious patterns we call beleifs!

    What would Jesus do with a scandal like that? The stories I know of Jesus depicted Jesus as a person who provided answers, direction and guidence to obtain a closer connection with God, Spirit of God and the individual. Jesus used that knowledge to bring large groups of people together to unite them.

    Division of what has been built are intentions to seperate! Jesus gave us the
    miracle of healing, closing the wound! Redundant scandals keep the wound open to fester! Are we "feating" or "feeding" off of thousands of years of open wounds or are we closing the wounds?

    A miracle is an amazing product or achievement, or an outstanding example of something.

    A miracle can also be a highly improbable or extraordinary event, development, or accomplishment that brings very welcome consequences.

    A miracle can also be a surprising and welcome event that is not explicable by natural or scientific laws and is therefore considered to be the work of a divine agency.

    Be the miracle that keeps us unighted!

    God is watching us too! Of course we can not prove that statement or maybe I just did?

    Have you ever been in a large group of people and all of the sudden feel someone checking you out, looking where they shouldn't be or sizing you up? That's called intuition.

    Has our pride become the art of creating scandals or causing scandals? How does your individual conciousness feel about that as opposed to the group conciousness?

    Heal the wounds of the present with the wisdom of the past creating a healthy future! Isn't that the goal? It's never too late or too soon!

  29. Democrats, more than anything else, need to win the Senate and remove Moscow Mitch from office. There needs to be a landslide blue wave election so we can right the wrongs of the GOP and the Trump crime family.

  30. I believe making the entire election about Trump is not only a huge mistake, but is also a tactic being focused on for the purpose of getting another neoliberal elected. (Seeing as that's pretty much the only thing they have that would convince someone to vote for them, at this point). But you'll remember that Neoliberalism (forcing everyone to choose between the lesser of two corporate evils) is what led us to Trump being elected in the first place.

    Progressives respond to candidates that speak to them about actual policy. Don't misunderstand, we realize beating Trump is most important, & many of us will vote for whoever the nominee is this time, regardless of policy, but beyond this, we'll never do that again. Our votes will have to be earned.

  31. It interesting how much of the facts you are leaving out. Omission is lying. MSNBC is number 2 only to CNN for made up stories. Your 10% and 89% are a complete lie. Have some integrity…try reporting the news instead of what you want it to be…your ratings might come up out of the gutter…

  32. Orange man bad orange man tyrant orange man concentration death camps.

    But how are you able to say it? The literal sign of such things is that you can't talk about it openly….

  33. Republicans are 110% behind trump, and should go wherever trump goes. Over twelve thousand lies. Clearly our country was taken over by a criminal cabal. Fake government. All silent while unthinkable amounts of money disappear daily. trump is dictator, and when he declares Martial Law, dictator for life. Many of the 10% Lawrence refers to only have one or two assault rifles. They want more. And many have trouble getting to a gun range and affording the ammo for these guns, so they need more shooting practice. Trump could fix all that with an executive order!

  34. Why is everyone so afraid of Trump? He's just a fat, old, sweaty man in makeup and dyed hair, prone to yelling and pushing people around. When the history of this era is written, the largest question to be answered is just this – WHY? Why were so many Americans cowed by such an obviously inferior man?

  35. My feelings about this administration was no different than my feelings of all the prior administrations during my time in service!! They are all equally currupt and worthless. But I must say, that Trump is racist, a crook , draft dodger, and traitor!! But without a doubt, he is the best con man ever!! Before anything else, trump true sicknesses is his Narcissis!! And I cannot believe his base really thinks he fighting for them??? He doesn’t care about anything or anyone, unless they serve a purpose!! Not even the extremist!! His only thought is winning and will use them to cause distractions!! He’s not leaving the Oval Office, because the moment he s ia civilian again. He knows Federal agents are standing in line and fighting to have the pleasure of putting cuffs on his band of brothers!! I see violence all over. But nothing like what is coming depending on the outcome of the election!!

  36. I'm a liberal in red state. STILL after 4 years, dems dont know who, or what they're fighting. They STILL dont get it. Talk to them. Go to red states in masses, often, long. you're still self righteously shrugging them off. That worked out well in 16, eh?? Yeah, yeah, dems. You hate him, hes stupid, I get it. Imagine another 4 years. It could happen again. While you smugly, self righteously, shrug him off. Go to red states. You still dont get it. EVEN IF HE LOSES. I have great suspicion we are heading for civil war. You have no clue. You're inching it there

  37. So if an arrogant Xi of China says, " ya know I d like to buy Manhattan, what ya say Donny? I'm serious, how much?" And Donny politely quibbles with him- how would we feel? How would New Yorkers and Manhattanites feel about this? We would be," Hey Xi, you ain't buy-in any of our country or our people or installing your own country here and takin ownership so FU. I think the Danish leader was pretty low key in her response to Trump. But Trump has no empathy at all so he can't imagine how they felt. He only knows his needs and had his own thin skin of feelings of anger over rejection and anger when he can't have the toy he wants.He is one sick SOB.

  38. It boggles the mind that the US can not push through strenuous background checks and banning of arms that no one should ever be allowed to own. How much bloodshed will it take for sense to prevail. No pandering to the NRA and it's corrupt lobbying.

  39. Polls are very misleading again: voters are asked by a pleasant human, and they don't mind presenting their personal opinion as to who they might wish to vote for; however, many have promised God that they will remain loyal to God's Own Party no matter what. In the voting booth they vote the Horror.

  40. "Today we begin where we left off last night… Trump, Trump, Trump, Trump, Trump" delivered with usual crazed smugness. Could have easily have said at the beginning '… begin where we left off last (week, month, year)… the main point of the report… Donald Trump is a bad, bad, person but not I!

  41. Let us face the fact – Americans are immune to the normal reaction a "sane" person would have to a mass shooting event, let alone multiple such events. These events are simply part of the 24-hour news cycle and quickly replaced by the next cycle events. The only people that dwell on them are those personally impacted or those who have political motives. It has happened, now it is in the past seems the logic used. When shootings become just a normal part of one's life then they have no lasting effect on the psyche. People are immune to these violent events and while they may feel an immediate impact the event is quickly forgotten.

  42. I too feel Individual No. 1 does not stand a chance, not anymore. But watch, the media or general public will remain attached to Biden. If they would just compare Warren and her career to Biden and his career. There is a dramatic difference in the two, with one definitely on top. Warren puts the president to shame. Biden is nothing more than an opposer to the president. And without any sweeping changes he can call his own. People are afraid of change so vote for Biden. Of course in my opinion, it's time to stop being afraid. Stop staying at home spending your time watching UTube.

  43. Did he say fear of trump over policy would motivate voters? Thats complete bs, we tried that hillary clinton. You need policy to bring out people who wouldn't vote normally. Put out policy on minimum wage, housing, rent control, gun regulation, ect. Only reason they push that bs is that they're empty of policy, the politicians they push have nothing but keep the boat sailing don't stir nothing up.

  44. About 1 hour ago I read a NEWS STORY on the internet, it QUOTED trump "I AM THE CHOSEN ONE, " where is the STRAIT JACKET & the RUBBER ROOM he will be transported to?????

  45. The hypocrisy of calling your opponents nazis and fascists while simultaneously generalizing them into an inferior group and saying they are all dangerous to society and deserve to be silenced, excommunicated, and even harmed… for having different views on policy

    That sounds an awful lot like something a group of actual fascists would do. Please look in the mirror and ask who the real nazi is. Seriously I constantly see leftists propaganda saying all republicans are racist and dangerous and need to be silenced, yet I have never seen anyone on the right calling for the left to be silenced?

    I suppose it’s easier to attack the character of people you’ve never met than have an objective conversation about how to help our nation

    If you are capable of thinking for yourself and not just regurgitating the same misinformation and ad-hominem fallacy, please act like it.

  46. o'donnell-another complete and utter failure for msnbc and other crybaby liberals,.lmao Trump in 2020 Caseclosed

  47. it will be entertainting to sit back and watch the horror show thats coming in 2020.those of us who see trump for what he really is,will have the last laugh when he turns on his devoted hangerons. lies we tell ourselves and other likeminded are that trumps voters are for the most part smart,God fearing people who want a better america.yet day after day most prove that wrong,are they truly like trump in their thinking?hate,greed,ego driven,anti-God,fools.if it was their own kin being gunned down they would be anti-assualt guns too.there are videos from the mid 90s that showed the nra in training,the things they said was eye opening.they distort facts with hidden racisit phrases.esay to understand why trump loves them and they have endless funds.win win in trumps eyes

  48. Fact is, unread, uneducated white males who fear the fact that men who happen to have brown skin. Can be smarter- more moral, and far more talented than they are. That is the drumpf voter.

  49. I would like to know if proponents of very restrictive US gun laws have looked over just what would be the result of implementation of these laws? Do these proponents feel that all the work would be done after the passage of some newer laws? My feeling is that "guns" are such a part of the US any attempt to severely restrict them would cause more violence than the laws were intended to prevent. I just do not see Americans pulling an "Australian" or a "New Zealander" and simply give up semi-automatic weapons. These proposals must have some chance of working before all the effort is made. OH, just what would be the sign that "the new gun laws are working".
    I attended a "McSally event" Something about McSally that is not well reported. McSally is a very,very right wing radical that accepts and welcomes the influence from the radical christian right.

  50. When is this genetic reject going to be removed from office? He, and all his regime, are valid reasons for sterilization..

  51. I read the article by Rachel Bitcofer. Great piece. Makes total sense. The bottom line is this battle will be won or lost depending on voter turnout, not policy. That doesn't mean it's not a good time to get good progressive policies through, but we mustn't lose sight of the ball.

  52. You can look for the fascists republicans to cheat as usual, come 2020!

    Its the only way they can win, which isn't a win if you have to cheat, lie, steal and BS your way into office!

    The Dems need to get the Senate away from these no good corrupt fascists republican obstructionists!

  53. More fake news,Trump isn't the president he never was, he was fraudulently acting like he was the president, the real U.S. Army made Trump get outside of the White House, Obama was the last president there, Mary Stanley's gang bribed most of the federal government workers in Washington D.C. to quit their jobs that's why the U.S. Army had to do it, Trump's gang probably murdered some people in Washington D.C., probably those 6in9 ones went into nursing homes and murdered some people or else they murdered some U.S. Marine's or U.S. Senator's, I believe that Trump doesn't like the U.S. Military or the U.S. government and that it was his idea to murder some U.S. Marine's or U.S. Senator's and to have some of his gang people do it, the 6in9 ones.
    It's time to declare a war against those gangs, Trump's gang, Mary Stanley's gang, Pence's gang, Obama's gang, Bill and Hillary Clinton's gang, and Pelosi's gang, raid Trump's tower in New York City, there will probably be a wild shootout there the U.S. Military against Trump's gang inside of that tower, probably a bunch of those 6in9 gang criminals inside of there and the 6in9's that murdered some U.S. Marine's in Washington D.C., and some Russians, Trump and his wife, a lot of those people will be arrested and shot and killed there or wherever, there's probably a lot of illegal money inside of that tower, that will be seized, Trump's gang probably embezzled that money out of the federal tax accounts in Washington D.C..
    All of the federal courts and the FBI have been shutdown since about 2014 after Mary Stanley's gang and Pence's gang murdered an FBI agent from the Indianapolis Indiana FBI office, and Mary Stanley's gang murdered a U.S. Supreme Court judge or a U.S. Senator, Mary Stanley's gang bribed most of the FBI agent's and Federal court judges to quit their jobs in about 2014, Mary Stanley's gang and Pence's gang also bribed a lot of police officers in the state of Indiana and West Virginia to quit their jobs, the White House will be seized, searched and destroyed by the real U.S. Army, there's going to be a war breakout against Trump's gang, Mary Stanley's gang, Pence's gang, Bill and Hillary Clinton's gang, Obama's gang, and Pelosi's gang, they've committed a lot of devilworshipping murders, embezzled billions of dollars, racketeered various crimes murders, labor, etc., fake police officer's all over the place, there will be a lot of real estate to seize that Mary Stanley's gang owns, a lot of homes and buildings to destroy. I want the job or contract tearing those homes down with a Link Belt 300×4 excavator and a Cat 973 track loader,I want the contract tearing down the Trump tower in New York City, if I can find a subcontractor to tear it down for about $10,000,000,000.00 that's ten billion dollars add my 5% to that and that is $10.5 billion dollars, that's $500,000,000.00 before taxes for myself, a lot of other homes and buildings that those gangs own to tear down, I'll get some subcontractor's to help me on those and I want my 5% on all of those. If Bill and Hillary Clinton's gang and Mary Stanley's gang own apartment towers in New York City I want the contract tearing those apartment towers down to, probably Ms-13 gang criminals and illegal cash in Bill and Hillary Clinton's gang owned apartment tower and 6in9 gang criminals and illegal cash in Mary Stanley's gang owned apartment tower, there's some homes in Jefferson county and Lawrence county Indiana that Mary Stanley's gang and Pence's gang own, there's probably fake names on the real estate deeds.
    The U.S. Army needs to go to Jefferson county Indiana and Lawrence county Indiana, to get the fake police officer's out of the police department's and court house, the schools are shutdown because of the fake police officer's people are concerned about their safety and security, and those gangs embezzling money from the state and federal government. Some of those gang criminals will have to be shot and killed, gang criminals that have did those devilworshipping murders, Mary Stanley and Pence's gang have bought funeral homes to try to cover up murders, those funeral homes will have to be seized, searched, and destroyed by the real U.S. Army.
    There needs to be real news, I believe that the real U.S. Army will probably have to make those public announcements.

  54. Republicans are about to become a sad and hateful footnote in American history. Better days are ahead. Fear Not.

  55. Tennessee is just full of confederate hicks who don't know their left hand from their right, and have been lied to for so long, they've become accustomed to it!

    They breed some of the worst political cattle from that state, like most of those southern states!

    Its full of ignorant uneducated people who don't have a clue, and are "stuck" in their comfort zones of ignorance and political stupidity!
