Don't fucking discount anything in our mad post-Rudd political era. We are fortunate to lack the hyper-religiosity of mainstream American politics, but I'm not sure the path we're treading is that dissimilar.
Remember when we said Abbott would never be prime minister again, for the second time?

The United States and it's political leanings can not be compared to any one country. We're more like all of Europe combined, so you'll find pockets of the country that are very much to the left and pockets that are far to the right.

Generally speaking the younger generations (40 or so and under) are moving in the direction of being godless liberals, while the baby boomers and beyond have become staunchly Republican thanks to Sean Hannity's dreamy eyes and come hither voice.

Obviously there are exceptions on both sides of the generational divide, but that's generally where things are headed... Although it'll take a bit longer in fly over country.

The only thing keeping the socially reprehensible GOP alive (and this go around has them on life support nationally) is that the baby boomer + generation vote in droves, while the younger generations are too busy with their pot and bisexual orgies to be bothered.

If we voted on a Saturday in November, voter turnout in a state like Alabama would be about 6.9% while everyone else watched the Bama/Lsu game.

You wouldn't have to see his face though, just the pillow.

There's no conspiracy of hidden information out there. They know as much as you know, if you just read the sources.
The RCP polls are mainly at the national level, whereas private polling can be far more granular - e.g. down to the precinct level, and issues by precinct. National level obviously ignores the electoral college. Someone is paying them big bucks, so their data must be more valuable than the free polls.

Right, and this is back to my original point: those polls that are down to the precinct level... they don't exist if there's no ground game. Nobody has insight about "granular" (I like that term) numbers in, say, California with respects to the general election. Why? Because those numbers are currently meaningless. The highest level of visibility would be California's primary, on a regional scale.

There's nothing they know about Trump's chances that we don't. Given the random nature of his campaign, that shakes things up even more because they can't really work with predictive, historical information.

Looks like a promo shot for a reboot of Fantasy Island.

Mittens went in on Trump.

Honestly Romney looks like Lincoln compared to the current crop of Republican candidates.
