Yeah, and those polls are just as predictive and accurate as going and pulling up RCP and looking at whatever latest poll came out.

There's no conspiracy of hidden information out there. They know as much as you know, if you just read the sources.

To be honest I think we pat ourselves on the back a bit too much that our politics supposedly isn't as crazy as America's. For example, our migration policy is cut from the same cloth or a more extreme one.

And the likes of Tony Abbott, Clive Palmer, Jacqui Lambie, Campbell Newman, Cory Bernardi, George Christensen, etc. would fit pretty snugly with the loudmouth insane Republicans. Cory's probably got a poster of fellow serial killer Ted Cruz on his wall.

Just curious. If Kasich won the Republican nomination, would any democrats here consider voting for him over Clinton? Everyone seems to like the guy on both sides besides the Trump supporters (shocking). He's also killing Hillary in the head to head polls. RCP average has him at +7.4.

Cory has no chance of ever being PM though thankfully

Remember when we said that about Abbott?

Remember when we said that about Barnaby and the Nationals' leadership?

Remember when we said that about Campbell and the Queensland premiership? (Kieran might, anyway.)

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.

Miley weighs in on Trump

"This makes me so unbelievable scared and sad," Cyrus wrote of a woman holding a mountain lion. "Not only for our country but for animals that I love more than anything in this world."

Then she laid into Trump, who the supporter believes will protect hunters' rights: "YOU DT ARE NOT GOD NO MATTER HOW MUCH YOU THINK YOU ARE!!!" penned Cyrus.

She added: "[And] if he doesn't think he is 'God' he thinks he is the fucking chosen one or some shit! We're all just fucking jam between his rich ass toes! Honestly fuck this shit I am moving if this is my president! I don't say things I don't mean!"

I feel like this election of US prez largely consists of cults of personalities. hey, even Hilary is reliant of Bill at some extent for god's sake. that's as superficial as it can get.

He's certainly the most sane of all the Republican candidates, yeah...but that Planned Parenthood stuff he's been involved with lately doesn't really endear him to me. The Republicans' attitude on that issue is among the many reasons I'm refusing to support them, because they've been really pissing me off with all of that.

I'm voting Democrat no matter what this election, though, so...

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.

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.
