Oh that's right The Age of Disinformation.

I hope you're joking. This video was at a little before 8pm Eastern. The hall looked exactly the same the night before at that time. The age of disinformation is right! You have idiots like this that spread disinformation to already brainwashed people and presto! more outrage!! more division!!
He says - "This is primetime of the second night of the convention"
ummm. no sir, prime time is 10pm Eastern for the convention. and wouldn't you know it, by 9:30 is the seats all started filling up and by 10, a packed house for Bill.

Looking at the current state of affairs, I think it's critical that Hilary improve her favorable rating and hopefully the convention and ensuing debates achieve that.

Trump seems to have finally gotten the hint that being on better behavior will help him. His favorable rating has improved in the last month as he hasn't had any major blunders. Of course there's still time for him to say something stupid.

I just can't get over the fact that Hilary has this perception engraved in our society (even though I don't agree with it) and every poll that comes out regarding her trustworthiness is painful to look at.

I pains me to say that I think this is Trump's election to lose at this point. I really hope I'm wrong.

I do think one thing that keeps getting overlooked in the polling, is just straight demographics and ground game organization.

I am skeptical that these polls are fully representative of the demographic breakdown of the electorate.

Republicans have said they need to hit about 40% Latino vote in order to win the election. Trump is polling at 14.

He is polling 0, yes 0, with African Americans in Ohio and PA.

He is trailing Clinton in college educated white voters, that Romney won fairly handily last time around.

Also, from the feeling i got last night at the convention, I do think that women are going to play a larger part in all this. Its one thing to have your reservations about Clinton because of all the lies spewed about her. But middle aged women are about the most consistent voters in the electorate, and Trump is not polling well with them. If Clinton connects with them in the next few months, its over.

Really?

The Republican convention primetime lineup featured someone who believes the pyramids are grain silos filled by people riding Jesus horses, Trump kids, washed up soap opera stars (not even the famous ones), and Chachi.

Yeah, all great points. The one thing that haunted Romney was the Hispanic vote, and it's obviously even worse for Trump this time around.

Part of it is personal perspective as well. I actually know 3 people in the last month that flipped to Trump (from Undecided).

Hopefully his momentum is short lived. I don't think this is going to be anywhere near the landslide for Clinton as some are suggesting based on where the polling is at right now though.

Not a bad example of structural gender bias (also, of poor design skills):



Hillary Clinton just won a presidential nomination. These newspapers ran front-page photos of her husband. - Vox

I think there are a lot of women out there. Possibly center republican types, that just will not vote for Trump. Women are a little more savvy and thoughtful when it comes to things like the future of their children and grandchildren.

I am also seeing a lot of reports of large increases in Latino registration because of Trump. I never wanted to run against Trump because he's a wild card. Ted Cruz would have been much preferred.

So yes, i am very cautious, and am reserving my optimism. I try to remember that now if she is solid in Virgina, Trump has to get all 3 PA, OH, and FL (I think) to pull this off. That is not gonna be easy. I hope this time Florida saves us, instead of ruining us.

The Republican presidential nominee just asked a foreign power to hack into the Democratic nominee's emails.

To be fair, the pictures are from the live event that they're covering, and Hillary wasn't at the live event.

USA Today went with a picture of Hillary on the big screen, and it looks ridiculous.

The NY Times solution was elegant, though:

And I was just saying that Trump hasn't said anything stupid in a while.

In the meantime:

- Trump asks Russia to cyberattack US Government emails;
- Trump says he may recognize Crimea as part of Russia;
- Bill O'Reilly says the slaves that built the White House were "well-fed";
- Trump confuses Tim Kaine with former NJ governor Tom Kean (!!!)
- Trump won't release his taxes.
- Trump complains about AC in Virginia Hotel, threatens not to pay bill; (ok, this is silly, but it shows his general way of operating)

You can't make this stuff up.

Bear in mind, Trump now receives daily intelligence briefings from the CIA.

Can you imagine the questions he asks during the briefings?

I used to think this was a joke, but I'm starting to think Trump is just in this for ego and might be fucking crazy.

That press conference is insane. Like, not just amateur hour shit-show insane, but "is Donald Trump an actual psychopath?" insane.

With his openly advocating for a foreign power to conduct espionage on US citizens, I hope his new nickname becomes Treasonous Trump.
