The End is Nigh: US Presidential Election Thread Part XVI

Good News: there's a light at the end of the tunnel! Bad news: It may be a train.

I hope this is the last Election thread. Back in 2014 I started the first one. It was a simpler time then, when we thought Ted Cruz was the worst thing that could happen to this election. We were so naive, so very naive.

I wish I had this to drink tomorrow.



PS. Fuck Ted Cruz

Our local elections are also tomorrow, and I'll be voting for the very first time. Wish I was living in the U.S. so I could cast my vote for Hillary.

Mine's looking a little like Ted Nugent's black and blue member

I'm optimistic that the Latino vote will help take Nevada, Arizona and Florida.

Trump picking a fight with Jay-Z and complaing about rap lyrics is this election in a nutshell.

God Bless Dr. Jill Stein, looking at some of her twitter posts she makes a lot of sense. It is too bad we are stuck with a 2 party system. I might be inclined to vote for her since my state will be called 15 minutes after polls close.

I thought Bolivia was basically a one-party system.

Any ideas folks, as to why Ohio and Iowa appear to have drifted comfortably into Trump's hands in recent polling?

Are there a lot of manufacturing jobs there that have been negatively affected by NAFTA?

It's all in the demographics. Fewer Latinos, not as many African Americans as in other places, and tons of non-college educated white voters, which is Trump's go-to constituency. Same reason why Trump is more competitive than Romney in Wisconsin and Michigan.

His rallies are YUUUUGE. Reports are that a rally in Ohio last night had a line of people 2.5 miles long waiting to get inside.

Yep, he's an amazing speaker.

As for my map, I think it will be very close. Would love to be wrong.

yes. and white people without college degrees.

Obama won big in the industrial midwest because he turned out blacks in the cities (Detroit, Cleveland).

Iowa ... less clear why he did so well.

i wouldn't be surprised if HRC pulls both of those off, however.

I'm going with this as my final prediction:



Also, 50-50 for the Senate.
