I should start applying for that Canadian passport now just in case Trump builds a force field.

We're fucked.
I have still hope for you and the US that it doesn't come that far.
What interests me is that even a very conservative website as RedState is actively going against Trump. Sure, they're no fan of Hillary, but they do proclaim that Trump is completely unqualified to become president. In one of his latest controversies (there are so many and they follow up each other so fast I can't be more specific unfortunately) they even side with the Muslim couple that spoke at the Democratic Convention about their son who died while serving in Iraq. So I doubt that Trump will get enough support to win the election.

That said, the election will likely remain close. From the Public Policy Polling organisation (via PoliticalWire https://politicalwire.com/2016/07/31...ably-be-close/ ):
Quote:
This election is never likely to turn out to be the sort of landslide for Clinton that some expected a year or 6 months ago because Trump voters just hate Clinton too much for that to ever happen. For instance on this poll we find that 74% of Trump voters think Clinton should be in prison, to only 12% who disagree. By a 66/22 margin they say Clinton is a bigger threat to the United States than Russia. And 33% think Clinton even has ties to Lucifer, to 36% who say they don’t think so, and 31% who are unsure either way.

Partisanship is one thing, but good grief, if you're that unhinged you probably should be committed to an institution.

You clearly don't understand the science of erections.

so when is the first debate meant to be? I fully expect Trump to pull out. and I fully expect for his behaviour to be allowed to continue unabated because nothing matters anymore.

Not until the fall. September 26. At least that's when it's scheduled now. All of the debates are more or less in the final month leading up to the election.

you guys are missing the story Trump wants to debate he just wants people to watch the debates

Quote:
Two of the three debates will be televised at the same time as an NFL game. On Sept. 26, the night of the first debate, ESPN will carry the Monday night game featuring the Falcons vs. the Saints. On Oct. 9, the second debate will air opposite the Sunday night game featuring the Giants vs. the Packers on NBC.

A Trump aide said Saturday that the Republican candidate "was made aware of the conflicting dates by a source close to the league." The aide was not authorized to speak by name and requested anonymity.

Hi troll

The debates were against NFL games last time, too. They do play on 3 of the 7 days of the week, with two of the 4 remaining days being Friday and Saturday.

And they've been set for over a year.

Try again.

I understand Trump's point...he wants the most viewers imaginable and he doesn't want NFL-watchers to be tuning out of the debates since that's the sort of crowd that would actually consider voting for him. The DNC might as well oblige him although it seems like they have been going through every hoop imaginable to not have people watching these debates even though it is Clinton's strength.

If he tries to weasel out after a schedule change, then he's obviously just chicken shit.
