He's been polling within or close to the margin of error during most of the election, sometimes beating her in more than half the swing states. When you consider that the media has mounted an unprecedented attack on him as a presidential candidate, claiming that Trump would likely be beating Hillary if she received honest treatment from the media is not delusional at all.

I don't think Trump or Hillary is "qualified" in the context of what I would want from a president, but it's going to be one or the other. I'm not sure what the implication is here by claiming Trump would be a disaster. Certainly it's not that Hillary wouldn't be a disaster.

This is correct. Trump's nomination is unfortunate proof that only an insignificant percentage of republicans want constitutional, small government. Or in the best case scenario, they truly do want small government but were too stupid to figure out that Trump wasn't the right guy.

I was talking about folks that labelled Romney sexist and similar.

What are the odds that Trump implies that Bush and Clinton did 9/11 sometime in the next four weeks?

Also this has to be the worst case scenario for Republicans right?

also one of the biggest takeaways from this is that trumps campaign needs to employ better graphic designers, because goddamn ive seen local elections with better graphics

And then there is Bush Jr. who won twice. If the democrats had put out someone better to vote for I would have crossed party lines. You guys talk like the democrats are by default better. But both times your party put out, in competition, guys who were worse than one of the worse republican presidents ever. And, are you voting for Hillary, which in my opinion is lower than Bush Jr.? Neither party has anything to write home about. They are both an American embarrassment.

Every now and then greger says something that makes sense  and then the Trump support thing rears its ugly head. I don't really share the whole Clinton/ Obama/ hate thing but if I did I would just have to sit it out there is no way I could bring myself to vote for that self serving clown

They all had Trump proxies on their panels, talked about Trump policies with a straight face like he was a more or less conventional politician. It gave him a huge amount of credibility and mainstream validity that he had done very little to earn.


They also have a pretty big vested interest in maintaining a close race. Blowouts are bad for ratings. When Clinton was pulling way ahead back in August, they pretty much let off Trump and dove in on the Clinton Foundation and whatever else. They uncritically accepted the hilariously low expectations for Trump for the debates.

I don't think it's deliberate, they're just chasing their financial incentives on top of having some built in biases (all campaigns must be covered as horseraces because that's what we do).


One of the leaked emails is about how the Ds should encourage the media to cover Trump and Carson as serious candidates because they would rather face them in the election.  Meanwhile, they were encouraged to call people like Paul and Rubio as typical crazy far right candidates.

There's no accounting for taste.

I am pretty opposed to a lot of Obama's policies, but as a person, he seems like a halfway decent guy (I mean, I don't think any politician is actually a great person that I would go out of my way to hang out with).  Hillary is far worse in my mind, but then so is Trump.

Trippy

Was just listening to In The End on youtube.


All I know
Time is a valuable thing
Watch it fly by as the pendulum swings
Watch it count down to the end of the day
The clock ticks life away
It’s so unreal

^^^^^^^^^^^^^ Poetry

I have a lot of FB connections in the south because I grew up there , anecdotal to be sure ,but most if not all the Trump support I see is due to the hatred of Obama and Hillary being seen as a part of that. Ranting about how Obama has destroyed their lives and this country between posts of nice families driving nice cars living in nice houses and going on vacations to Europe.
