There is no such thing as a universal trend for the final 1.5 months though.

Some states will do better than the national trend, some worse.

CO for example could still reach their final 2000 rate, because it had pretty good returns lately.

Other states even in light green may not reach them.

WA is fairly interesting, because it could reach 72% by the end of September - up 6% from 2000.

Will be interesting to see if WA will also see its population growth reported above their 10-year estimates or not as a result and states like MT lower ...

From what I can see, lower response rates had no real impact on reported population growth rates: census takers will make sure to count the remaining population or the Bureau will use imputation measures.

Fwiw the argument from grocery bills is a better one than the idea this would really damage rural life - in general, rural communities have not really benefited from the increased intensification of agriculture, and even farmers who "win" are massively indebted and in the red without subsidy. I assume Bernie Sanders, who represents a poor state filled with dairy farmers (who are especially screwed over by the current situation) is more aware of the situation than exurban Republic teens (the idea that your average republican has a greater understanding of how modern agriculture than effette urban soyboys is a dubious one).

There’s no good reason to pick Kavanaugh.

Yes there is lmao.

Kavanaugh: Squeaky clean record, support for limited government, pro life, pro right to bear arms.

Harris: GND destruction of our economic system, M4A destruction of our healthcare system, higher taxes, gov seizure of weapons, abortion on demand, bigger government, continuation of transgenderism.

And this poll reflects that too btw. Calculating with accurate proportions of US voters instead of Atlas numbers, Kavanaugh's decisive wins with I/O voters and Rs would bring him the victory in a bigger landslide than 2008.
How exactly would a President Kavanaugh “stop transgenderism”? I’m curious.

Couple of thoughts

1) Yale is a private institution and should be allowed set its admissions polices as it sees fit and the government should no business getting involved  The 1964 Civil Rights Act was and is still a huge mistake and there is no reason to continue that mistake.

2) Taking the Asian angle, I feel there are quite rational reasons for Yale not to want a large over-representations of Asians on campus.  Asians, especially Orientals, tend to give to their alma mater at a much lower rate than Whites.  Asians, especially Orientals, tend not to make it to the apex of business and industry (mostly for cultural reasons in my view), so if Yale had a large number of Asians in its class their Alumni will have less wealth, power, and influence versus a counterfactual world.  It is and should be all about money and Yale should be free to maximize its wealth, power and influence as it sees fit without the government getting in the way.

Consider that many Kavanaugh voters may be are in all certainty responding to ERM64man spamming these polls and not voting honestly.

This is it.


(I am not one of those. I have not voted in the poll.)

jimrtex has focused on states topping their final 2010 rates so far.

But what about states beating their final 2000 rates ?

There are only a few so far, because 2000 had mostly even better rates than 2010:

WA, ID, HI, KY, AL and D.C.

Note that final 2000 rates are only reported without decimals.

WA, ID (and with rounding KY) are the only states where the rate increased from census to census.

The light-green shaded states will reach their final 2000 rates, using a uniform 2.4 point gain until September 30.

The yellow states have a potential to reach their final 2000 rates, but would need to gain above-average in the final 1.5 months.

The red states have no chance whatsoever to reach their 2000 rates by the end of September.

He’d essentially be the Florida Dems’ answer to Mark Kelly.
What? Guttenberg has never been to space.

The Gulf states, in viewing Iran as a far bigger enemy, are finally putting aside their differences and aligning together with Israel. It’s just a matter of time before the remainder do so as well among Arab monarchies.

Feudal monarchies allying with the apartheid state against a theocracy, sidelining a stateless people stabbed in the back and used as a pretext once again. That's the Middle East, you know

I don't think you can fairly describe the Gulf States as feudal, given that land has so little value there. They're petrodespotisms.

The lands containing oil fields are very valuable, much more than the agricultural lands of the Jordan Valley where settlers employ cheap Palestinian labourers in a relation that resembles the South Africa's apartheid. I'd say Saudi Arabia is a medieval country in many respects, but you can call that monarchy as you wish. Israel has annexed the Palestinian lands already. The "Abraham Accord" is pure hypocrisy

I can't really make an informed decision on this, but for completely shallow and superficial reasons I am going to say Croatia only because every Croatian person I have ever met, and there were quite a few of whom I went to school with, were absurdly pretty-both male and female.

I can confirm that's true. Most Croatian women I have seen are stunningly beautiful.
