I'm one of those people who moved, in large part, for political reasons. After 35 years as a lonely Democrat in Oklahoma, I moved back to California, where I grew up. I'd been very politically active since 2000, and just got tired of losing. Little did I know that Orange County, where I moved was almost as conservative as Oklahoma. But we turned OC blue in 2018! There is still work to do, but I definitely found my tribe.

Just heard your question about run-offs in the South. I didn’t know the answer either… Another example of the structural racism & Jim Crow energy baked into our institutions. I just wanted to say your response was so gracious. Wypipo are wrong about there being no “right” thing to say. Thanks for being uncomfortable & moving on without white fragility & hysteria.

There is no "right" to abortion any more than there is a "right" to spank your children. Some localities allow it by law, and some don't. An outlet that is predicated on objective, statistical analysis should not be using this kind of shamelessly-biased language.

"let's *#& this puppy" is not something they say in America. I did, however, hear it on occasion when I lived in Australia. Mind you, this was over 20 years ago, so they might not say it there anymore either.

There are so many issues with this lady's arguments, and I applaud Galen for challenging her. Citing Ukraine as a "liberal democracy" that got into civil war had me floored (really grasping for examples there). Or, that she constantly repeats the meme that Republicans are all white people, despite the polling and data clearly showing they're getting MORE, not less diverse. It sounds like the sort of alarmism meant to compel Democrats to vote more than a serious academic pursuit. Which is fine, just be transparent, damn.

Silver is a degenerate racist, equating remote schooling during the pandemic with the devastation we caused in Iraq. I listened for years, but no more.

Want to actually gain the trust of these people as a journalist? Maybe don't laugh every time you bring up a conspiracy theory they believe. You have to be learn how to talk to people, even if they are crazy. This entire interview wreaks of elitism and arrogance. You definitely didn't change any minds.
