Looking long term, in 2-3 more election cycles the Democrats will win automatically due to demographic changes and it is already going that route. Any Republican basically has to win a decent majority of swing states to win already, and when a few more states turn blue the election will be little more than a formality.


wow living in the state of my-vote-dunt-matter California I never thought I'd come to have even LESS of an incentive to vote

Yeah, I hear you. If the above happens I don't see how the Republican party can survive. Maybe the Democrat primary becomes the de facto election (like how the NYC political races are), who knows.

I still think Trump has a decent chance to win.


History and math both say no. If he manages to come back from this it will be a historic first in US history ( so if it happens it will truly be a sign of the apocalypse ). No one has ever come back from being this far down this late in the election. For all the noise, bluster and shrieking of this election Trump has never actually had any advantage in the electoral college or the popular vote.

The closest he ever came was the post RNC bump when he had a 2 vote electoral advantage for all of 1 day of polling. After that he has been trailing in both the college and the popular vote this entire time.

Right now the projected electoral college is 338 to 199 for Clinton. Arizona is officially in play right now for the Democrats. Arizona.

Which also may be a sign of the apocalypse. ;p

It seems the faint hope that Trump will somehow appoint a judge to the Supreme Court that will overturn Roe v Wade is literally the only reason the evangelicals are still clinging to him despite him using the Ten Commandments as a bucket list.

I think they'll be sorely disappointed when he appoints Justice Howard Stern.

I agree she will face an uphill battle in terms of likeability and approval rating. If she can get results after 8+ years of political deadlock I think she will build a lot of trust. Assuming she becomes president, the only other personal goal she has is establishing a legacy. That requires her to actually do a good job as president. I find this somewhat encouraging, although for all the wrong reasons.

Trump will win. The Demo/Repub team will work very hard to convince people otherwise. But Those people will vote how they really feel, and Trump will win. It's just that the hardcore liberals, hardcore political professionals, will try to convince Trump supporters otherwise. A vote for Trump is a vote to smash the current Republican/Democratic partnership that has kept average Americans down, in favor of corporations, and other crap.

It's time to shake up American politics as usual, and to crush the system that has steadily - over time, stolen our rights and freedoms from us. Voting for Trump will do that, and will rip the Republican/Democratic party out of the hands of the corporations that control both parties. Four years after Trump, the Dems and Reps will have learned their lesson and start listening to the actual people for a change, and not to just the corporations, who control the Dems and Reps....

USA had its good days though ^w^. But trying to be good is nice. The problem is all the other authoritarian countries or well us or them. The problem is aslong as people argue on who's country has bigger nuts then it usually leads to what we see. Religious leaders are more or less here to annoy people thats why we have religious freedom... when they are tired and people and people have sorta had it then they will get along... Atleast how i imagine it

Ah yes, unskewing the polls. That worked out so well for Romney.

I really don't want to get into politics but will say how about we just see how she does if she is President? Let's not jump the gun here. You're right and she definitely could be the most unpopular president or she could end up doing a lot of great things and endearing herself to the people. Only time will tell. You can't take a politician at their word because they ALL lie. Let's wait to see her actions and then judge her accordingly. Also please keep in mind that a good percentage of the population are going to hate her no matter what she does. She could balance our deficit, raise minimum wage to a normal living standards, pull us out of this recession and back to prosperity, create closer ties with the rest of the world, and global peace. Hell she could totally find homes for all the homeless and you're still going to have people who hate her because A). They're Republicans B). She's a woman and C). They're Republicans and she's a woman lol.

Obama hasn't been that bad and people HATE him with a passion. At least Republicans do. Personally I don't think it's fair. I would have liked to see an Obama presidency that wasn't shackled by obstructionism and to let him sink or swim on his own. The same with Hillary. Let's all judge her actions and what she does or doesn't do for this country. If she is elected president and doesn't do a very good job then there's always next election. I highly doubt that anyone can do a great job at this point though. The opposition will do EVERYTHING to block her. It's like Obamacare. For years Republicans wanted Federal health care but once Obama did it they were like no no no. We can't have our black opponent doing the very thing we want. It's evil! Granted Obamacare is a huge mess and needs to be dealt with but still. I'm just really tired of all the bickering in Washington and wish everyone would just join me in voting EVERYONE who's currently in office out of office. Do that once or twice and things would change. Hell instead of voting for party members we should all find local people in our communities that work hard to make our community a better place and get them voted into office instead. They would have NO ties to Wallstreet and would actually care about us instead of some nameless guy or gal who has a summer home where we live and comes out to visit us peasants once or twice a year.

Bah, see now I'm talking politics when I said I wouldn't but that's okay. As far as politics go this has been one of the more civil posts I've seen. Thanks everyone for keeping it civil.

Yes although most of his "scandals" are about something stupid he said, to be fair. Actually up until his recent fiasco, I think he created a vast majority of these so called scandals to get free media coverage since he cannot financially compete with the Democrats in a traditional manner, especially since the Republican party leaders hate his guts.

Unrelated, love your avatar one of my favorite mangas :happy:


To be fair, most of Hillary's e-mails are over something stupid she wrote or said. This whole election is just two sides trying to out-troll the other.
