No weapon found at Trump rally.

Many weapons found by Trump supporters on twitter who saw incident on TV.

No matter the result on Tuesday I genuinely fear something bad is going to happen in the coming days.

In the case of Trump's rally it seems like someone was having trouble raising a sign and someone yelled gun.

Also, I am no longer at all confident that Hillary will win the election.

I am. The media wants a horse race and is desperately pushing all narratives that reinforce that.

Latinos are voting in record numbers. African Americans, while not at Obama levels, are still voting at a higher percentage than the general population. Add in other minorities (Muslims, lgbt), women, Republicans who simply can't stomach Trump (and Republicans who are too afraid to publicly state that they can't stomach Trump), and Trump simply doesn't have the numbers among angry disillusioned white (primarily) men or anywhere near the ground game to pull this off, even with voter suppression shenanigans.

Breathe.

I'm completely relaxed that she will win, but worried about the margin. Practically everybody had made up their minds before the nonsense of the last week. It's all noise at this stage.

The margin also worries me. I think it will be close, at most a difference of 5 percentage points. But Hillary will most likely do better in the electoral college.

This.

Trump will not win
Latino Vote
Black Vote
Female Vote
Youth Vote (tho no one really wins here)

So where does he gain an advantage? He doesn't. He's going to lose, and probably lose big

The more worrisome thing to me right now is how he will behave after he loses.

A couple of thoughts on. The past couple of pages:

As a 2nd generation Mexican- American, it brings me joy to see the amazing Latino turnout in Nevada and Florida. This is what happens when you campaign on hate.

Yesterday while looking for the Beyoncé show, I watched a bit of MSNBC. They had a Princeton professor who has an election model, similar to Nate Silver's. His model is much more optimistic on a Hilary win. He said the reason for this is he believes the polls are more accurate right now than Nate Silver does. Nate Silver, as a result of primary season believes the polls understate Trump's numbers. I thought that was interesting.

That said, I'm confident Clinton will win.

Hilarious that it was just a Republicans Against Trump sign. But now in the Trumposphere he's an assassination survivor.

On my local news, they just said someone yelled "GUN".

The Secret Service has procedures for such incidents and acted accordingly..

I think there was no gun.

Trump rushed off stage at campaign rally - CNNPolitics.com

Wow. So a Republican protestor was attacked at the rally, then basically framed for possessing a gun, had no charges filed against him, and the Trump camp hasn't done a thing to suggest that anything other than an assassination attempt occurred tonight?

I mean...I guess I'm not surprised.

Meanwhile, one of my friends on Facebook is complaining because in 1998 Hillary Clinton said she was a Yankees fan even though she's actually a Cubs fan, and recently switched back to supporting the latter team. I mean, priorities, right?

I always knew Hillary would be a sporting bandwagoner. She is so that type of person.
