This is an absolute non sequitur, this message would have resonated no matter who. Stop trying so hard.

Of course it would have, but then Trump's lowly polling numbers (in the low 40s) wouldn't have been anywhere near enough for him to be in contention. After all, the third party polling tends to hurt Clinton by an extra point or two in her margin over Trump. That 3,000,000 or so that currently say they're voting for Stein would have dried up to almost zero had Bernie been the nominee. Not to mention the millions of others staying home because of the detestable options.

But, god forbid it happens and the orangutan becomes Commander In Chief - all of the Clinton primary voters owe everybody else an apology. Hell, you can argue that they owe everybody on the left one already. Even if she wins, it will lead to much weaker coattails for the rest of the Democrats to ride giving us a more Republican heavy Senate and House than if someone else had been the Democratic nominee.

I feel that Hillary is incredibly dangerous to the country. That being said, you have very skillfully defended her to the point where I pointed out you'd make a great press secretary for her. You have been able to deflect attacks against her as Conspiracy or Hyperbole (Conspirbole). Don't have time for a rebuttal at the moment. But will get around to it. Initial thought is that you are using the term "White Supremacist" hot and loose, to your rhetorical credit.

Hilary's not the one currently making "jokes" about how risky it could be if a presidential candidate didn't have armed guards around them. Just sayin'.

Not to mention:

tracking people of certain religions

not taking nuking Europe off the table

posting propaganda written by neo nazis

and who did he hire as his campaign manager?

When you can't recognize danger, you are amongst the most dangerous.

I look forward to your rebuttal, because so far you have not defended Trump against any of the charges laid against him.

As for being hot and loose with the term white supremacist, I have only used that term to describe people who fit its definition. I wish it wasn't the case.

I'd rather hear his rebuttal than BMP's.

RCP has a nice little module running from their aggregate polling -- no toss-up mapping.

They just take their current aggregate poll number and update each state as it updates.

Remember: aggregate polls do not accurately predict -- rather, each individual poll is an individual predictor. So, aggregate polling is second order, and these results merely depict trends as opposed to results.

Nonetheless, given the current trends (Trump surge), this should give you an idea of where the Republicans stand as of today, were these pills to come true.

I think that map is pretty good, it has Trump at 245
but I think he wins North Carolina also, that's 15 more to put him at 260
Three somewhat small but competitive states are; Nevada, New Hampshire, Colorado if he wins any two of those states, which if there Is a late search he could,
Then he wins the whole thing

Of course if PA moved his way, it gets a lot easier, but I,m thinking that N C is more likely,

Also Trump only needs 269 to become President while Clinton needs 270.

Oh PLEASE.

The most cautious politician ever is dangerous to the country? That's absolute nonsense and you know it. "Incredibly" dangerous? You can't believe that. She's not so far from mainstream conservative thought. She understands how government works. She's a defender of the status quo. She's reasonable and informed and hard working.

You can't in any serious way believe she's *dangerous* to the country, or the world.

You may prefer the politics of the maybe-billionaire Donald Trump. You may be a racist. You may not like her. But you cannot think in any way, shape, or form, that she's somehow a danger to life on earth as we know it.

Incompetence is dangerous, W proved that
Hillary 2016 has proven to be incompetent.

Ok, let's play this game: So Trump has proven himself competent?

I'm not counting on North Carolina, which means she basically can't lose any other states. Which is why that poll where Drumpf led in Colorado legitimately worried me, for the first time in the campaign, that he could win.

Also, if that map holds true, Hillary would be the first president since JFK to be elected without Ohio.

I'm an Ohioan and I will be humiliated if he wins the state, and I expect him to.

Forgot all about that. Certainly helps.

Don't you think there'd be at least one Republican in the House that views Trump as too dangerous and votes the other way, especially if Clinton won the popular vote? Very possible it would not be a slam dunk.

And that's exactly why this election is close. It always reverts back to Trump's awfulness and never to Clinton's positives. Contrasts are important and Democrats really dropped the ball.

Each one of the 50 states get one vote I think, and the GOP control enough small states, he wins, easy.

it is kind of funny looking at the states
And the electoral votes there are a few ways he can hit 269

I kind of hope that happens, and the popular vote ???

The Brexit vote will look like kindergarten


And to think if they had good ol' Joe Biden, this truly would be over, just like 96 or 88, instead the elitists, gobalists put the fix in for crooked Hillary.

We certainly don't want Ohio to lose its status as the state that always goes with the winner
and if Hillary cannot win Ohio with the most popular governor ever crapping all over trump,
does she really deserve to be president?

Man, you will drive 100 miles away to avoid the point won't you?!
