I suppose, gump. That is one notable difference-I don't live in a rural area.

Be nice if the Green Party would actually try.

Sorry, hard to tell in the context of the mood of this thread.

I think a lot of us live in echo chambers and we're extremely out of touch. That we are all shocked... says something, I think.

Ah, shit, Anthony Bourdain is doing a Japan episode though! Life does go on, apparently.

We aren't much better. We're a racist country imprisoning refugees and in 2019 our third-biggest party will be a far-right party.

As Irvine and I have both said, the shock really comes from how wrong the polls were. I am not a poll denier. This swing is completely blindsiding.

Life will go on. But there will be damage.

But then I think "nuclear codes ..."

Yup. I'm not joking: I've never met a Trump supporter in real life. Caveats: I live in NYC, work mostly with foreigners and people who lean very liberal, and didn't grown up in the US. But still, it's quite telling.

I also think about what'll happen the first time a world leader dares to criticize Trump, or call him out on some policy of his. That'll be a fun reaction, I tell you what .

We may not always see eye to eye on things, but tonight, we seem to be of one accord.

Poor Japan... Can Trump actually mess up their defense situation? Or does that have to go through Congress first?

This is a man who's so volatile that his own campaign advisors took away his Twitter password so that he wouldn't do something stupid.

And he's a few ticks away from being our leader.

I know plenty of Trump supporters. Many of my relatives are voting for him, and my mom, sister, and I all work with people who are voting for him. So I'm very well aware of the conservative mindset.

But I guess I just assumed and hoped that even if Iowans were leaning more conservative, other states out there were going to be a little more progressive and come out in support of Clinton. Especially considering the fact that some red states nobody would've expected to be toss-ups actually were so for a time.

Who is this guy on CNN right now suggesting Trump isn't actually a racist?

Edit: and who is this wonderful man speaking right now?

It's not even about what Trump is going to do just yet...

It's about the fact that a man just ran a campaign riddled with sexism, accusations of sexual assault, and xenophobia... and otherwise made EVERYTHING up on his way to the presidency. Intellect of the average American was challenged.
