No, it was 30x while in office
I believe i addressed that in my post. Beginning with sentence 3. hate defending a democrat but sometimes information like is easy to acquire. So when i read, his net worth skyrocketed while in office, i got curious to find out why. i figured you would have been curious enough to dig around too instead of stopping at wondering how and why. But no worries, i did that for you.

Probably not. Half the nation has voted already. Everyone has made up their mind. This election depends on turnout which in this year is the biggest wildcard.
Half the nation hasnt voted but i bet half of us already made up our mind (probably closer to 80 or 90% of actual voters have I would guess)

About 6-10% of the likely voters have indicated they are undecided.

That is if you can believe the polls.

$185k was a lot of money in the 70’s...equivalent to over $1 mil today
So he buys a house that's about 4x his salary. That's rather common. My house was 3.5x my salary when i bought it. And i mean look at the dadgum house. I'd stretch my money to live in a reasonably affordable mansion. And dont even get me into all the people with 500k houses in CA who make substantially less than 100k.

Yep and his senate salary would have been $42,500 back then ($264K in today's money). His father was an oil business man and his wife and child just died in a car accident.

So he could absolutely afford that house on his own no problem. May have gotten help from his father. Probably got a life insurance payout too.

Depends on the poll. Rasmussen is usually good. It's difficult to be undecided with this level of polarization but they exist. Unfortunately there's a good swath of voters who will never be undecided, they'll just vote the party line until they die. Very predictable. Basically, that's oklahoma. Oklahoma is incredibly predictable every election so politicians, especially republicans, dont have much incentive or reason to campaign here and campaign on things that matter most to us specifically. why would anyone spend $5 campaigning in oklahoma ?

just putting into perspective, we have people in the board who were not alive in the 1970’s and have now ide about the value of the dollar when we were on the gold standard.

In 1970 median income was $8,200 and median house price was $23k.

Well, then you understand how people on the right feel in California.

A US Senator in 1970 was making $42,500 not counting kickbacks.

Their salary today is $174,000.

Supposed Hunter Biden text Rudy released was on a... wait for it... Russian cellular network. Congrats Trump cult, you've officially been duped again.

The guy added this. Seems he is just assuming he's right. And the evidence seems to be that a guy doing business in Russia used an iPhone that is capable of running on a Russian network. Well Duhhhhh


(Of course this isn't actually from the Delaware computer shop, but I still figure Rudy's behind it and this screenshot is the only one I've seen from the "business partner" that has the MTS /iphone interface)

Now here we are with liberals defending the very things they claimed Trump was guilty of and should be removed from office for.

Last night Biden said that he never opposed fracking. He asked Trump to "post the video" when Trump challenged him on it. Well Trump delivered.

Or the state of Washington.
Sort of like the population isn't it.

There is a group on the left who aren't going to change.
Then there is a group on the right who aren't going to change.
Then there is a group in the middle that can go either way.
