Cool. I've been feeling like Internet Paranoia is something I've been lacking in my life lately.

(Also, I did catch up on the last thread. )

I'm a little ashamed to admit I watched the debate while on Maui. But in my defense, it was on in the middle of the afternoon, which was my daily siesta time anyway. And I had some really good beer from Maui Brewing Company.

I've seen more "everyone sucks 2016" and "cat in the hat id vote for that" and old Obama stickers than anything for either candidate.

Based off my obviously super scientific data here, I think the people support throwing both candidates out and starting over from scratch (none of the clowns allowed back in the car), and just leaving Obama in there for another year while we have a quick do-over with all new players.



*edit: oh right, I quoted Hewson because I only hope that the more populated end of Massachusetts where he resides might have at least 6 Clinton supporters to negate the idiots out here.

Also, how does anyone make it through watching the debates? I can't even remember what the first question about the Supreme Court was because Hillary bored me to death and then Trump started by whining about a justice saying mean things about him. Then I turned it off because they managed to reach my quota for bullshit before the first 5 minutes were up.

I feel it's my duty to watch.

Even if it's insufferable.

Yea I actually DVRd the third debate cause I was going to be home late. I also feel it's an important civic duty to be an informed voter.

My wife wanted no part of it and went to bed, but thata likely because she works for an evil main stream media conglomerate and already knows the result of the rigged election.

There is a lot of anecdotal reports of Trump signs vastly outnumbering Clinton signs. And obviously the rally attendance isn't even close.

I think if there's anything to worry about its that Trump's support may be understated in some parts of the country, and/or those who support Hillary don't come in the numbers they need because they just assume she's going to roll to victory.

It's still probably not enough to cause a huge upset here, but it may end up closer than it should be due to these reasons.

Barring something unforseen, a Trump victory would be the greatest polling error in our nation's history.

I heard a story on the radio a couple weeks ago how Crooked Hillary's campaign is more or less eschewing the old lawn signs as they find them to be a thing of the past and is instead sinking their money into internet advertising.
Considering how many ads I've seen on my computer screen asking me to sign the petition to "be with her", I'd say the story is accurate.
Lack of Clinton signs is indicative of nothing, Orange Donnie's getting rolled in 16 days unless we find out Crooked Hillary is actually Hitler's granddaughter in the interim.

I saw the first two debates, but only caught parts of the third. I just can't stand listening to Trump bellyache and babble on anymore.

This is my biggest concern. I really don't want Hilary supporters to just sit back and assume she's got this. Yeah, Trump's had a nasty few weeks recently, to put it mildly...but that just makes his supporters dig in their heels even more. And even people who aren't big Trump fans have come to his defense in recent weeks claiming all the criticism of him and the things he's said is "overblown".

As for the signs, I've seen a couple Hilary signs and a couple Trump ones, but for the most part the lawns here are pretty empty in general. My family does know people at our workplaces who've expressed support for Trump, though. And on our local news the other night, they shared the results of an area poll asking who viewers thought won the final debate...and Trump got, like, 51% of viewers claiming he'd won, I think the number was.

(Trump's got a lot of fans here in Iowa. It's very disconcerting and makes me really nervous about his chances of carrying this state come Election Day. If he wins Iowa, I may start looking at other states to move to.)

Touche, though you inherited that one from the Brits. The orange fascist is entirely your own doing.

Actually, it's Mark Burnett's fault. So again, the Brits are to blame.

Following hilarious people on Twitter is how I make it through.

Also, alcohol.

I don't actually think number of signs I see is indicative of anything (I was mostly making a joke, saying my purely anecdotal noting of signs is "super scientific"), aside from a basic thought about how I've seen almost none for either side. Around here you'd think the biggest election coming up is for county sheriff if you go purely off number of signs. Those things are everywhere. In seriousness, I made sure I'm registered to vote back in May when I renewed my drivers license so if the unthinkable awful happens and the orange clown wins at least I can bitch about it.

Yeah, local election signs are far more prevalent around here as well.

Though every afternoon on my drive home I do pass under a guy who is on a route 3 overpass with a Trump sign and some other home made sign which changes daily (last Thursday he just had "Benghazi" on a piece of paper in sharpie).

I think the only thing that MAY understate some of the Trump support is the fact that some of his supporters may be too ashamed to admit it to a pollster on the phone but will end up voting for him. This is supported by the fact that he pretty consistently performs better in automated polls (when a robot calls you) than in polls where real, live people call. However I think this has to be a fairly small number because most people who are capable of feeling shame in respect of voting for Trump are probably not voting for him anymore.

In my view, absent something catastrophic happening in the next 2 weeks, the only question will be which/how many traditionally Republican states Hillary takes.

On the reverse side, I also think that Trump supporters are also some of the loudest and proudest.

I feel like I'd be much more likely to see Trump paraphernalia... a bumper sticker, a shirt or hat, something with the orange man's branding. Whereas I still feel like most Clinton supporters/voters are rolling their eyes and are the clear majority.
