Why voters in this Maine county are ‘up in the air’

 

Half of the counties in Maine voted for Donald Trump in 2016, even though they supported Barack Obama in not one, but two elections. CNN's Evan McMorris-Santoro reports from one of the state's pivot counties. #CNN #News

  1. Up in the air

  2. I just want to thank you for caring enough to pronounce Bangor properly and not as BangEr

  3. @1:15 I’m sorry but how does that work? How can you not have a political ideology and be voting? It makes no sense. There’s always a side that you lean towards even just a tiny bit.

  4. Yeah, why prosecute criminals? There are more important things to do! /s

    • Another example of uneducated Trump supporters… I guess treason is only treason if you are NOT REPUBLICAN.

    • @MrToby101 if there guilty they should..we dont defend criminals..why cant Republicans do the same

    • @Big Lo pain is coming more crying leftists for years to come

    • @Rashad 707 what crime and what reasons were committed please elaborate because as of right now the Democrats have zero proof of any wrongdoing they made it all up

    • @MrToby101 SMH, where have you been for the last 3 years??
      Where to start is the question.
      But if u see nothing wrong with Trump holding approved funds until an investigation on Biden is initiated, ok.

      Nothing wrong with him verbally asking Russia and China for another investigation of Democrats e-mails, ok.

      Nothing wrong with the trade war that will have the USA in a recession 12 to 24 months from now, ok.

      Lies lies and more lies from Trump, the most in US history. Why you don’t see it or why do you condone it? IDK, hate is usually the main reason BUT if you live by the “ALTERNATIVE FACT” code that also explains it.

      **Treason**
      Did you NOT watching the DISGRACED president in Helsinki ???

      BOTTOM LINE, MAN TO MAN….Putin PUNKED our president in front of the world then he tried to tell Americans what he thought he told Putin?… no sir, we (the world) heard what he said.

      You still think it was good people on both sides in Charlottesville?

      You still think Obama is NOT American?

      You also think it’s OK to talk down to POWs or Gold star families???

      You believe ANYTHING and choose not to be rational.
      Question, you think the country is more divided since Trump???…YOU AND I KNOW THE ANSWER TO THAT, but ok.

  5. CNN be like “It’s not the Economy Stupid!”

    • Well spoiler alert The economy sucks. The deficit is booming. Low paying parttime jobs are in vogue, the stockmarket which was artificially boosted is ready to be unmasked and pull us into a recession. Despite the media talking and repeating Trumpuian bs about jobs and the economy, this administration has done f… all to effect it positively.

    • @FILMkijkertje LMAO, classic projection.

    • 1G3001 Yes. The economy is awesome. We all know that. Now do something. Anything. This is getting comical

    • @Dave Waldon That’s one hell of a magic wand POTUS is using.

  6. The guy from vice? Lol

  7. How can they think that impeachment doesn’t matter or is “white noise”??? Are they just not paying attention? Does keeping our democracy strong not matter to them?

    • I hope in the future theres a Democratic president and he goes to foreign countries for gain so they know how it feels

    • read the transcript

    • @John O skulls and bones is a cult

    • For people who are confused why Maine voted Republican, I think honestly that will happen in a lot of other states. Trump with the weird law that exists, can’t be taken out of office regardless of what he does. The impeachment inquiry is legitimate but its just been going on for so much longer than we’d like to the point that people have lost interest and patience and just want both sides to get back to work. The main reason people voted for Trump in the first place was because they were tired of politicians on both sides not getting anything done. Trump was something different than all the other candidates which is why he won. Even though I’m not a fan of him, the Democratic Party needs to really start convincing people on where it stands and give people hope for the future, because right now its a long boring battle that feels like nothing is going to happen because Republicans aren’t in a fact finding mode. Andrew Yang said it himself and he’s democrat too, we need to move on and show what the Democratic Party is made of!

    Don’t they read newspapers or watch non-Fox news in Maine?? The Democrats in the House have passed nearly 300 pieces of legislation since the midterm elections, some of it bipartisan, and the Republican-led Senate has not touched it thanks to Moscow Mitch. For Lord’s sake, it’s the Republican Party that is “do nothing” by sit on their a*sses or carry water for trump.

    Almost looks like the Ghost Marine Town, TwentyNine Palms, CA…

    That whole Hwy supports Trump(Yucca Valley, Joshua Tree, & TwentyNina Palms), all i gotta say 😸🤧😜😍

  10. Country first has become in last place when it comes to money, it’s all about me, me, me!

  11. Oh look, another edited video where CNN paints the opinions of a select few as representative of whole. That’s two today!

      They are so desperate looking for news.. haha…if it were not for the impeachment hearing CNN would have nothing to report.

    Also Congress HAS been working on the other important issues to American. Almost 300 bills PASSED in the House. Moscow MITCH is the one BLOCKING every step towards progress.

  13. The Clinton News Network

  14. Lunch break😂

  15. There are 3 options:
    1. Love Trump.
    2. Be disgusted of Trump.
    3. Undecided? Something is wrong with you.

  16. This is how naïve the Democrats are, They should be holding Townhall meetings pamphlets and Q&A’s regarding the impeachment and the fact that Donald Trump is the enemy of the states and he’s done things the damage the democracy of the USA. Instead they are doing nothing?.

    • Izziebiz VOTE Blue!!

  17. Democrats, make some noise about Mitch McConnell killing bills before they can get voted on. He’s the so called Grim Reaper.

  18. Lol if he is doub tho vote for trump, he is more stupid than i thought lol

  19. woah I thought dude was on VICE!

  20. I just love these “Snapshots of Stupidity” segments. It lightens the heart after a day of the usual Trump/WH bullsh!t. Keep ’em coming CNN.

    • So cutting and so accurate. Rather than spread these ignorant opinions on how they feel how about some stories educating their ignorance.

    • @Paul Krueger You forget that anything that doesn’t come from fox is fake news. Listen, they’re beyond help, thus they are hopeless. Ever get a bible-thumper to denounce christ? Didn’t think so. If you are able to accept this simple fact your days may feel a bit lighter.

      Hey I like that, “The Simple Facts”. They’re simple, and that’s the facts. Goodnight folks, stay classy America.
