Gunning for poor old Mitch. About time.

"Former Missouri Gov. Eric Greitens (R), who is vying to replace outgoing Missouri Sen. Roy Blunt (R-MO), holds a substantial lead among his primary challengers — a lead which increases when voters are told of his vow to vote against reelecting Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) as Republican leader, a Fabrizio Lee & Associates survey released this week found."

Marco Rubio again focusing on the really big critical issues of national security, almost as if he thought the CIA would link all their networks to Tik Tok exposing confidential information.  Also why would he think the CIA would use Tik Tok!  Waiting for one of Rubio's colleagues to request that the CIA doesnt set up a page on Pornhub given they arent American either 😂

Breibart 🤦‍♂️

So, something repub related gets posted on social media land and when one searches for the source they are taken to a repub leaning site that reports factually on the contents of the social thing. If it's not on which approved sites it's not real?!?

I really do hope that this is not your only escape from the echo chamber.

MBFC Credibility Rating: LOW CREDIBILITY. 

Breitbart have consistently pushed a far right agenda that is regularly debunked. If they are correct it's accident rather than design.

that reports factually

Reports a single poll of 400 people in a state of almost 7 million population with 114 counties

The polls are much closer than that when there's a larger sample size and lower margin of error

Regarding a republican primary contest. Sure, the poll may have issues, but this is making an impression in the repub political world. This is a small sidebar in the greater picture, but is nonetheless important imho, because it represents the first clear evidence of being anti-Mitch rather than anti-establishment/Dem etc as a winning strategy. Remember the tea party.

The dems could do well to take note, given how clearly the repubs have portrayed Pelosi.

There have been a number of polls showing Greitens in the lead, this poll is confirming what seemed to be the case before anyway. But i agree with @villakram, it's an interesting race because Greitens is so Trumpish, it's quite a good measure of how important he still is in the Republican party (very!).

He has a number of sex scandals, so he might end up running quite a weak race in the general, but it's Missouri so he'll be fine I'm sure.

To sum up:

Things that are vital in life (or should be seen to be) - education and work.

Something that isn’t vital in life - playing sports.

Areas where diversity quotas would likely be a good thing - in education and in the workplace.

An area where it wouldn’t necessarily be a good thing - playing sports.
