Its pretty clear that either of them would say anything to win votes. As far as the campaign goes, Anything goes.... Anything.

Polls looking a *little* better for Trump in some of the swing states.     Real Clear Politics has the details.     Trump's best chance of winning will be getting a good proportion of the 93 or 106 million people who did not bother to vote in 2012 to get out & vote this time.

 

There is a good piece on five thirty eight where one of their writers has come up with 5 scenarios for what will be in the USA papers on November 9.    Well worth a read.

 

Here's the link because it was a bit buried by the new stuff.

The jaded American voter will only be interested in the headline 'FBI investigating Clinton again.'

Depends which side they're on.

 

Clinton supporters will be interested in just-released video of Trump "groping" a woman.

Handy bit of cut and paste  

 

 

 

US Election results in New Zealand Time:

 

Wednesday November 9:

Noon: Polling booths will start to shut at noon, with state-by-state results expected not long after.  
Exit polls will be available almost immediately, giving a good idea of the way the day is going to go.

1:30pm: The first swing state to close will be Ohio at 1:30.

2pm: A large batch of eastern and southern states will close at 2pm, including swing state heavy hitters Florida and Pennsylvania.
Unless things are very close, it should be fairly obvious who has won the election at this point.
With many of the southern states counted but populous democratic strongholds New York and California still to come Trump will likely be ahead in the popular vote.

3pm: New York closes at 3pm, along with Colorado, Texas, and Arizona.

4pm: The outcome of the election is usually clear at this point.

5pm: The west coast states like California shut their polls at 5pm NZT, likely bringing in millions of democratic votes to the popular vote total.

7pm: Finally, Alaska shuts up the polls at 7pm.

You should see the whole thing, and not the Alt-Right propaganda bullcrap version

 

 

Quote:

 

 

This item has been taken by many viewers to mean that Moore is endorsing Donald Trump's candidacy, but that is not the case. The audio and transcript cited above were taken from Moore's new documentary TrumpLand, which features the director laying out some of the reasons why Americans, especially those residing in the Midwest, might be inclined to vote for Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump. However, the audio is incomplete and has been stripped of a major portion that changes both the tone and the meaning of Moore's speech.

 

Immediately after the above-displayed clip ends, Moore goes on to say that Trump voters, like Brexit voters, will soon regret their decision. Shortly after the edited version of Moore's speech went viral, the documentary filmmaker uploaded the full clip to YouTube

joker97: Oops

 

Apocaloops 

 

What a freaking shambles.  Hope enough Americans have the sense to laugh off the result - whatever it may be.

 

Nice move by ex-republican FBI chief - paints himself with Teflon, secures a place in history.

That's something about American politics I've always found strange. Public officials identify themselves as (R) or (D). Our civil servants are strictly required to be politically neutral in their jobs.

Very helpful timeline from GregF.    If Nate Silver & all the pollsters get it wrong they can always blame the late October surprises.    Who knows there could be several early November surprises yet!

Hilary's Facebook page is a barrel of laughs. Click on any thread and you'll find mostly negative comments. Not even the bible bashers are on side.

You go to Trumps page and it's mostly positive support. You see the rallys from either side and Trump always seems to have a bigger turnout. Either trump is paying for support and has a better censorship team, or Hilary's team simply can't keep up with the negativity.

I was personally calling a Hilary win, simply because she's quite obviously the establishment's choice. But with the recent FBI stuff and the clear support trump is getting, I dont think I'll bother putting my money on Hilary anymore.





Sometimes what you don't get is a blessing in disguise!

Don't make the mistake of basing your reality on comments online.

If you want to see what's going on, look at the numbers

I think Trump supporters are probably more likely to cheer for him and boo her at every opportunity. Clinton supporters are likely to be more measured in their responses. This could explain a lot of the difference.
