Yeah, but imagining enough people voting for him to elect him at this point isn't even remotely far fetched. It honestly feels like a coin flip at this point.

What I learned:

A. Hillary's book is available to buy at bookstores or perhaps an airport near me.

2. Donald has property everywhere.

Third. We're fucked as a nation regardless of the outcome Nov 8

That's fine, but we can take one night to just shame every Trump voter. Including the ones on this forum. It's fucking shameful.

No. We're not fucked either way.

We have an established, rational politician who deeply understands policy and how government works, as well as how the world works. You may not agree with her, but she is not a threat to the continued existence of any of those things.

The main thing that can be taken out of all of this. Felt similar (although on a lesser scale) in regards to recent Australian elections.

In 20 years, how are they going to explain to their children that they genuinely thought he was the right person to be President?

Edit: although the quote is "I guess so," which does kind of line up with his comments now.
Thanks for at least including this.
This forum will show 100% I was aginst the Iraq war from the start of it. Hanz Blix UN Weapons inspector found no evidence of WMDs. In 2002 if some one asked me about Iraq before inspections I may have said the same thing he did. But I can say I was always aginst the war when the war was launched

Well, the election is now over. She beat him by a ludicrously high margin in the debate polling and there's no reason the future debates won't help her even more with the general public.

Only way Trump mounts a comeback is if Assange's leak does a lot to muddy the waters.

Same here. Day One. And I never believed there were WMDs. But I'm a liberal, so that shouldn't be surprising. Nobody who supported that travesty can call themselves a Progressive. Fact.

My God I hope so. I've been obsessing about the cabinet appointments he'd make, especially the Department of the Interior, which oversees the NPS, which handles my beloved Grand Canyon. I can't even think about it without getting worked up.

Yes, Godwin's Law bla bla bla, but I'm not even joking that this is going to be like trying to explain a vote for the Nazi Party in 1933.

People who think voting for somebody who either espouses or enables fascism, racism, xenophobia, sexism, misogyny, and white supremacy, and who shows complete scorn towards any notion of the truth, deserves neither respect nor engagement. At this point my attitude to Trump supporters is pure condescension and dismissal. Seriously, every single one is a pathetic excuse for a human being. How on earth did the US produce a nation chock-full of trolls? What an embarrassment. The fact this will affect the country I live in, and all others in some way, makes it all the harder to sit idly by and hold my tongue. I watched just a couple of minutes of this debate and Trump is a genuinely repugnant, awful person. It was unbearable, especially as I can't exactly throw back shot after shot while I'm at work, so I turned it off to spare my blood pressure.

I can't even believe we have Trump supporters on this forum. Espousing Trumpist views probably would have got you banned a decade ago, and now this vileness is part of mainstream political discourse?

Seriously, if you support Trump, I hope to god I never meet you. I prefer to avoid fascists and their fellow travellers, thanks.

I think about that, too. This is going to be taught in history classes and teachers will have to figure out how to explain this insanity. It's a truly surreal thing to imagine.

Already I'm seeing people on other sites bitching that Lester Holt was biased towards Clinton because he didn't ask her about the e-mails (actually, he did) or Benghazi or her foundation .
