How did Trump get so much of the Latino vote. That's what I don't get.

I think that's about it.
1. You say that now, until someone from another country provokes him. Not to mention the fact that he has proposed arming other nations with nuclear weapons.
2. You yourself have said that the one actual decision that a presidential candidate makes is the choice of vice president. He chose a man who is as anti-gay as any politician in America.

Real possibility Hillary wins the popular vote despite losing the EC.

Not that it makes a difference.

I think the Latino vote thing is because Latinos are not a monolith and his most offensive comments were solely about Mexicans.

Does anyone do a map of what the election results would be if all states were like Maine and Nebraska?

That's fair. You are right about that. My apologies for even doing such a lump.

Honestly, given the reports that we've heard about attempts to intimidate voters at the polls in recent weeks, it really wouldn't surprise me to learn that played some sort of role in this outcome.

Which, if that's the case, makes this even more disgusting and absurd. Trump's out there publicly railing against the very thing his supporters were eagerly doing, or trying to do, at least. That is low. So very low.

Wow. I know polls said it'd be tight but still HC was to win.

Now this ? Euro TVs say Trump has 245 electoral votes while Clinton has 215.

So now we have a China trade war advocatin'/Putin and Kim lovin'/zero experience in politics/wall buildin' President. I guess Trump owes this one to the FBI's late case interference...

I think I may have said that at the time, but that situation recalls Sideshow Bob rigging the Springfield election.

Maybe a good hot take would be does Donald Trump = Sideshow Bob.

Agreed, and a notable portion of Latinos are likely to hold very right-wing/reactionary views which can be connected to US history and relations with Latin America.

The loving, charitable folks over at Breitbart have the ear of the president.

But at least the Senate and Congress will provide balance, right? Its not like Republicans run everything now do they?

I'll say this, too, I do not EVER want to hear Republicans/conservatives complain about celebrity influence in politics again. Their party let a reality TV star become the nominee, and helped support his candidacy to where he'd become president of the entire country.

And they still praise Reagan, who was an actor prior to becoming president, and Schwartzenegger got to run California. So yeah. The right has no room whatsoever to talk anymore on that issue.

This is where the two-party system may actually moderate his insanities. I'm sure the GOP will fall into line on most things, but not all.

But it's tough right now.
