    Do we all agree that the polls are rigged?

    Polls don't work anymore bc people realize they don't have to answer them. So skewed yes.
    Sorry. The world doesn't work the way you tell it to.

    no ... there are for sure some vocal trump supporters but there was a ton of closet supporters ... it's similar to Brexit in the UK ...

    NBC says she now has a harder path, if all is leads hold he probably wins...I don't believe he'll win, but much closer than I ever thought...

    this is sort of what canada's former pm once said about his term ... the hardest issue he ever had to deal with was not whether or not to send Canada to Iraq but rather gay marriage ... this is because people will never outwardly proclaim their homophobia but in the security of their home or ballot box - they are free to express their ignorance ...

    this is what's happening now ... people didn't want to say they would vote for trump but deep down trump represents more americans by a landslide vs hilary ...

    Trump is the most pro-gay republican that has ever ran

    Oh, you have no idea! I couldn't be more ashamed and disgusted.
    The only bright side would be that folks like free, jc, tonifig8 etc will have to accept their tinfoil hat awards for claiming it was decided years ago and it is all rigged.

    to be honest, can someone please explain to me how the united states became this superpower when people vote for this guy? man, I am shocked not that I think Hillary is going to lose but that trump got this many votes

    We became a super power after world war 2.
    oh I know that with the land lease for weapons deal. I am just wondering how trump can be this close tbh
    Because Hillary is such a shitty candidate. If Biden or sanders runs it s a tko after Maryland.
    Agree about Hillary.(Trump is shitty too)

    And yeah, i too also think if Joe Biden ran he would've ran away from Trump. I wonder why he didn't run?
    Also a rebuke of Obama. Make no mistake about it. She is terrible, but the fact the house and senate aren't flipping tells you who the American public thinks is the problem.

    And btw, at this point win or lose, love or hate, you have to admitTrump ran a masterful campaign that will be studied for years to come. Dismiss as an oddity at your own peril. He spoke to people both parties had forgotten.
    And will deliver on nothing he promised.

    Over the last few years I've never trusted polls...I just think today that can't possibly be accurate...

    how many voted for hilary in the primary thinking she was a better candidate in general and in an election vs. trump!? ... bernie would have easily won this election ...

    that rust belt is all voting anti TPP ...
  • BS44325BS44325 Posts: 5,939
    It ain't over but I said a long time ago that as a big of a buffoon I thought Trump is I totally understood his strategy. Trade, Jobs, Immigration, Obamacare, Corrupt Washington. Just keep hitting it over and over again. Stay in the news cycle even by saying stupid things but in the end bring it back to "change". It was a change electorate and he spoke to it.

    No. Detroit is going to pull out Michigan for Clinton and that's the end of the drama.

    Not by a long shot, but I have to have a silver lining somehow...and you know she is not beloved by me, I have voiced my dislike for her repeatedly, to you directly, but I supported her to stop Trump. You always responded with one of several conspiracy theories; that Clinton and Trump were working together, that he was only running for show, that Clinton was predetermined and the whole election is rigged, etc.
    Much to the detriment of the nation, you were laughably wrong, whether she pulls it out or not.

    She didn't get nearly the same support as Obama did out of Michigan, I'm watching local Detroit coverage and the democrat analyst seems worried...

    GOP holds the senate. That is pretty crazy in it of itself.
