  1. LOL so you googled the term and copied the dictionary definition. Cool bro. Definitely a serious person.
  2. So, as usual, you are commenting on something that you have zero knowledge of. Ok, got it. Do you ever think maybe you should try to learn something, instead of discounting things based on your own caricature that you've built through a lens of conservative media?
  3. What the hell are you talking about? I'm looking for a coherent thought here and I can't find it at all.
  4. He also completely ignores the structural racism that ensures black people, on average, tend to be poorer.
  5. If you end up in any of those places, you definitely took a wrong turn.
  6. To put that in perspective, my area of Northside has about 10 units per acre and all the houses are single-family detached.
  7. Yea, and that's why the trend toward smaller household sizes will lead to population losses. It'll be interesting to see if their tone changes once the growth stops. Mason could be very similar to what we now see with the development in Dublin if they'd let it happen.
  8. As an aside, Mason grew 92% in the 1990s and 40% in the 2000s and only 9% this decade. That growth will likely reverse and turn into losses in the next decade unless they change their zoning to allow more high-density development. As it stands now, it is getting very close to being built out. EDIT TO ADD: The losses will be because of declining household sizes. Historically, Mason had very large households compared to the region as a whole, but it has been trending toward smaller households, and at a faster rate than the region as a whole.
  9. Agreed. And we need the four lines in the reinventing Metro plan. Not just the two they are now talking about. I live in Northside and would take the Hamilton Avenue/Ludlow/Clifton line to work downtown everyday if it existed. The Glenway and Reading lines will be high volume but the Hamilton Ave and Gilbert/Montgomery Ave lines hit more high density nodes with lots of millennials. And nodes are key for BRT, vs. the relatively high densities found all along Reading Road, but very few truly high density nodes.
  10. Actually, the youth turnout was higher in 2016 than in 2012 (46.1% to 45%). It was higher in 2008, though (51.1%). Also, Bill Clinton won with 52% youth turnout in 1992 and only 39.6% youth turnout in 1996. So take from that what you will. https://civicyouth.org/quick-facts/youth-voting/
  11. One thing to keep in mind is that voters believed Trump was the more "centrist" candidate in 2016. Conservative media did a great job of painting Hillary as a communist and most people viewed Trump as moderate based on his (seeming) positions on gay rights, entitlements, etc. It turns out he was a lying sack of sh*t and people realize that now. How they didn't see it before is beyond me? https://fivethirtyeight.com/features/voters-think-trump-has-moved-to-the-right/
  12. He did extremely well in the Youngstown-Warren area and in Southeast Ohio. He also moved a lot of already red rural areas more red. Like Adams County, in southern Ohio, which went from 62% R to 76% R. The thing is, he's now maximized his margins in the rural R areas. It's hard to gain on that 76% in Adams County, and even if he could, we're talking about a diminishing amount of votes. Also, all those places are losing population, while the Cincinnati, Columbus, and the suburbs of the 3Cs are gaining population. Finally, an unusually high number of voters voted 3rd party. In Cuyahoga County, for example, it was 4.3%--compared to 1.1% in 2012. Trump got 30% there, similar to McCain and Romney. But Hillary under-performed by about 4%. So it's likely many of those third party voters will come home to the Democratic nominee this time. So the electorate is going to be more liberal in 2020 than it was in 2016, guaranteed. That leaves us with a situation where we have to speculate how much. I think Trump will win Ohio again, but I am very confident it will not be by 8 points. It is more likely that he'll win by 2 or 3 points, and if that's the case, he's already lost Wisconsin, Pennsylvania, and Michigan.
  13. Assuming you're correct, I'm not even sure this counts. Cuyahoga Heights has like 300 total voters. And it is losing population. It is inconsequential to the future politics of the state when compared to places like Blue Ash, Montgomery, Dublin, Westerville, etc. Also, Parma swung back in 2018. It is very unlikely that Trump will be as strong in Parma in 2020 as he was in 2016.
  14. Which Cleveland suburbs flipped from Obama to Trump? Parma did I think. But I can't think of any others. Not saying they don't exist. What I do know, is that not a single Cincinnati suburb flipped from Obama to Trump. The Cincinnati burbs (and Milwaukee for that matter) have historically been pretty red and actually many of them flipped to Hillary from Romney. Blue Ash, Amberley Village, and Mariemont all flipped blue. Others like Montgomery, Mason, West Chester, Sycamore Township, and Madeira moved left and continued to move left in 2018, but didn't quite move left far enough to flip in 2016. Some of them will be flippable in 2020. The story in the burbs of the 3Cs is that they are overwhelmingly moving left, not right.
