If you were to read the Quinnipac poll, you would see Trump had worse numbers in the same poll against Biden and Sanders in 2016. 

 

Russia helped Trump win during 2016, do you think that's Trump's strategy for 2020 also?

I wasted my time reading that.

No wonder so many conservatives are affected by petty partisan divisions and animus when this is the garbage offered and consumed in a regular basis. 

I don't waste my time on obvious nonsense.

If this is a GOP strategy for 2020, it is clear they got nothing in the tank!

But I already knew that.

I would love to see this happen.

“I think Trump ought to start going to California. I think he ought to go there once a month. I think the Republican National Committee ought to schedule a debate in California," Limbaugh said on his radio show. "I think the campaign should have ads showing and highlighting the homelessness in downtown Los Angeles and pointing out that this is what happens when Democrats run things with no opposition, no checks, no balances."

Wait, how can this happen in Trump's America? Employment is lower than ever! Wages are up! He has created bazillions of jobs! He is building a big, beautiful wall! Taking in billions in tariffs!

Maybe you missed the part of my post that has Trump trailing ALL six of the top Democrats, not just two.

Did Joe Biden run for Democratic nomination in 2016??

Anybody else remember Biden running in 2016, because he clearly wasn't in the running.

Maybe he was a candidate in Trumplandia, in 2016, but not in the real world.

Would he then also go to all of the states under complete republican state governments (governor, house, senate) yet have higher unemployment rates than California?  Arizona, Ohio, West Virginia, Mississippi, Georgia, and South Carolina?

Alaska has a 6.5% unemployment rate with a Trumpublican governor and a mixed legislature.

Our Downtown Los Angeles Skid Row has had a large vagrant and homeless population for about 140 years.

Governor Reagan released more than half of the state’s mental hospital patients and passing a law that abolished involuntary hospitalization of people struggling with mental illness.

 This started a national trend of de-institutionalization. Suddenly near our hospital there were several homes where some of the recently released people lived. Night and day many of them walked across the streets in the middle of the blocks, often stepping in front of cars. The new law required the patient to ASK for help. It has been near impossible for parents and loved ones to obtain treatment or care for a mentally ill person who doesn't have the insight to know they need the help.

I believe he did this out of kindness, but was also not educated or experienced regarding mental illness.

After he was elected President in 1980, he discarded a law that would have continued funding federal community mental health centers. This basically eliminated services for people struggling with mental illness.

Now for decades California and other states suffer from a lack of sufficient outpatient and inpatient mental health treatment and care. (In my opinion this also contributes to many deaths both violent and otherwise.

Just a few years ago at about 6:00 am it was dark. I heard brakes squealing followed by a crash less than a block from the hospital. A BIG naked man was face down in a four lane street struggling to breath. As I ran to help an ER physician on his way to work got off his bicycle and began to help that man. Thea driver who had hit him was shaking, shivering, and crying loudly. I helped her by taking her to the sidewalk, locked it, and gave her her purse and keys. I cared for that woman almost an hour.

A resident on the block told the police that neighbors were calling police almost daily because he slept under bushes during the day and walked naked across the street. The week before a police officer had seen him naked, arrested him, and then he was taken to a hospital mental health unit for 72 hours. Neighbors don't know how he got back to the street, buy police wouldn't come again until he walked in front of the car.

What do you suggest to ensure Americans have their need for a place to live met?

My sister-in-law lives in Inglewood, CA. Los Angeles, County. Before the new Rams stadium began construction her house was worth about $250.00. She is now receiving offers to sell at $800,000.00 to $1 million.

 Inglewood officials adopted an emergency ordinance Tuesday to limit rent increases and halt evictions temporarily while the city tries to find a permanent solution to address rapidly rising rents spurred in part by construction of a $2.6-billion football stadium and entertainment complex.

The lowest rent for a small apartment here is $2,000.00 a month.

Quote

A recent study found that nearly 1 in 5 students in the state's community college system face housing insecurity. Many of them, like Cypress College student Selina Jaimes Davila, have found refuge in their cars.

"I knew... that it was a sacrifice that I had to make. If I wanted to be successful, if I wanted to graduate, if I wanted to transfer, if I wanted to get educated," she said.

That would different that than the subject which was homelessness.

The states with the highest rates of homelessness are Democratic lead, mostly on the West Coast.

What is also interesting that that states with the lowest rates of homelessness, but for Massachusettes (which oddly has a Republican Governor and is liberal bent) are also Democratic states, so Limbaugh's claims fall a little flat.

Too late to edit the above posted, but I wanted to post out the article above states: 

The severity of homelessness fluctuates greatly by state. Half of all people experiencing homelessness came from five states: California, New York, Florida, Texas and Washington. 

Notice two of those states Texas and Florida are Republican lead.

What herring and I have both pointed out, is that homelessness, especially in successful cities, like Seattle, LA and San Francisco, is largely due to income inequality.

So if Rush is upset about homelessness, he really supports the ideas of Sanders and Warren, not Trump.

Oh, my.

Rush is a closet Democrat!

He is a Bernie Bro!

People living in shelters are counted as homeless too.

I used to volunteer for several homes for women and children near here. Most of the women had been abused at home and left in fear. Some mothers were addicted to drugs. They were treated as outpatients. Passing random drug screen was required to stay. Many of them earned their GED while there. 

With a friend we went to six supermarkets every day at 5:00 pm, when the BBQ chickens had to be removed. We had from 5:00 to 6:00 pm to legally get those chickens and take them to the shelters.

We also bought the kids a new coat, and pair of shoes, and a back pack with school supplies, tooth brush and paste, and new socks. We attended school events. Usually Moms attended, but we made a special effort to attend when the Mom did not.

Most of the women found work and moved out when their youngest child was in school all day.
