1,765.5 babies per 1,000 women

We Americans aren’t making babies fast enough to replace ourselves, according to the Centers for Disease Control. To reproduce our population, the fertility rate must be 2,100 births per 1,000 women of childbearing age over their lifetimes; we’re at 1,765.5 per 1,000 — “or 16 percent below the number needed to keep the population stable without additions through immigration.”
And if it wasn't for immigration, we'd be doing even worse.

U.S. Still Leans Conservative, but Liberals Keep Recent Gains

The Gallup Poll: "Americans' assessment of their political ideology was unchanged in 2018 compared with the year prior when 35% on average described themselves as conservative, 35% as moderate and 26% as liberal. Although conservatives continue to outnumber liberals, the gap in conservatives' favor has narrowed from 19 percentage points in Gallup's 1992 baseline measurement to nine points each of the past two years.

Since 1992, the percentage of Americans identifying as liberal has risen from 17% then to 26% today. This has been mostly offset by a shrinking percentage of moderates, from 43% to 35%. Meanwhile, from 1993 to 2016 the percentage of conservatives was consistently between 36% and 40%, before dipping to 35% in 2017 and holding at that level in 2018.

These ideology figures are based on combined data from Gallup's monthly GPSS and other standalone surveys conducted each year. The 2018 aggregate includes 13 surveys totaling more than 13,000 national adults.

Majority of Democrats Identify as Liberal for First Time

The percentage of Democrats identifying as liberal averaged 51% in 2018, up from 50% in 2017, marking the first time a majority of Democrats have adopted this term, following gradual increases since the 1990s.

In 1994, nearly half of Democrats described their views as moderate while equal percentages, at 25%, identified themselves as liberal and conservative. That fundamental pattern held until about 2002, during the first half of President George W. Bush's first term in office. From 2002 through 2014 -- spanning the Iraq War under Bush and the Barack Obama presidency -- the liberal share increased approximately one percentage point a year, while the percentages moderate and conservative fell. Since 2014, the percentage of Democrats identifying as liberal has increased at an even faster rate of two points per year on average."

Going RINO hunting

We've already bagged three, just need one more so that Vice President Pence can't break a tie. That would force Trump to veto a bill and the veto would make the shutdown 100% Trump's.

"3 Republican senators want to reopen government without a border deal"
Sens. Lisa Murkowski (R-Ala.), Susan Collins (R-Maine), and Cory Gardner (R-Colo.) have called for the government to be reopened before more work is done on border security.

Murkowski: "We don't need to hold up these six other departments at the same time that we are resolving these very important security issues."
Collins: "I'm not saying their whole plan is a valid plan, but I see no reason why the bills that are ready to go and on which we've achieved an agreement should be held hostage to this debate over border security."
Gardner: "I think we should pass a continuing resolution to get the government back open. The Senate has done it last Congress, we should do it again today."
