Hopefully Trump will win.  If he does it will be small margin.  I don't like either. Trump is not a nice person it seems but certainly not evil. I feel Clinton is quite evil looking at her history as Secretary of State and Clinton foundation overall.  Under Obama USA has become weak.  Under Clinton I fear we will very quickly enter world war 3.  Time will tell. So I hope Trump does win as better of the 2 candidates

 

 

 

 

You hope for who? It won't be good for NZ, especially as the TPPA will then likely be dead, and all the millions we have spent on it will be wasted. What someone looks like doesn't come into it. Why is WW3 more likely under Clinton? The last war they got involved with was under Republican leadership, not the democrates.

 

 

 

 

There's anti-establishment feeling in NZ - people who'd like to see the world economy and trade take a hit, look forward to turmoil etc.

 

 

 

 

I guess that is what happens when the divide between rich and poor gets bigger. Over the last 10 years it has gotten worse in NZ too as proven at https://www.tvnz.co.nz/one-news/new-zealand/pensioners-hit-hardest-inflation-gap-between-rich-and-poor-widens 

 

 

 

 

I don't dispute that - shooting yourself in the head won't fix that problem though, as it appears America is likely to find out.

Trouble is if the economy takes a hit it's usually the have not's who suffer most.

 

 

Precisely.

Where do you guys look at all the nitty gritty? GOogle page just shows a headline xx vs xx grand total

 

 

CNN and Fox

 

I'm not sure how they are making some of the state predictions when some states haven't even started counting votes though.

 

I thought I'd look at each is CNN tends to be biased Democrat where Fox is biased Republican.

Wall street is poised for a 3% drop on opening based on futures trading now.
IIRC, there's expectation that a Trump win would result in an immediate 10% drop.


Gold is up - but rejoice geeks - bitcoin's headed up too.



And Auckland house prices to follow!

Daily Telegraph website is headlining a slim lead for Trump at the moment.

If Trump wins all the states he is currently leading in (some have only counted less than a quarter of the votes), then he'll get the presidency if I've added things up properly.

Looks that way, although some of them are currently very close - less than half a percent in it. Looks like he'll get Florida though. He's about 1.5% ahead with less than 1% left to count.

And on that note, I'm going to retreat to fantasy world and play Elite: Dangerous for a while.

NY Times have gone from a 90% chance of Clinton victory yesterday. Now Trump win sits at 77%.

This is absolutely ridiculous.

5% left to count in Florida according to CNN and Fox, but I'd say Florida is done and dusted in his favour.

 

Is it wrong that I kind of want Trump to win just because I have been insisting to everyone that he will win? I know it would be terrible for entire world, but my pride is at stake!

Not unexpected though. I feel the media has downplayed his chances significantly.

.8% left to go and he is leading by 1.5%. I think its safe to say he won it.

Where are you getting that from? Where I'm looking still says 5% to go.

They very clearly state that those dials will not be accurate until the votes are actually more complete. I don't think they even consider states that have not yet closed - which is kind of a big deal when California is still not closed.

I was wrong with my guess for a 5 point Clinton victory - that's clearly not going to happen.

 

I'm not sure if in my lifetime I've witnessed a scarier turn of events in global politics than what's unfolding today.  Mostly, I've witnessed change which has resulted in increased freedom, tolerance, interspersed with periods where that paused, but 1/2 century where generally, life improved in relative peace.  Trump's implicit approval for a new era of bigotry and intolerance doesn't bode well.

 

Market futures are continuing to tank.  There's nothing to celebrate folks.  It's a dark day of historic proportions.
