Re: Polling numbers... I sure see a lot of discrepancy. I have recently seen many polls with Hillary up 8, 10, 12 points. Then a few days ago, I saw an LA Times/USC poll that had Trump up one point. Now another one came out today, with Trump up 2 points:

It's very possible that we have a tight popular vote and a landslide electoral vote. It's all about where the votes are coming from.

http://projects.fivethirtyeight.com/201 ... -forecast/

FiveThirtyEight projects Clinton to get 340 electoral votes to Trump's 197, but only have a 6% advantage in the popular vote. Before the first debate, it was basically a coin flip.

And I agree that that should be a turning point. Trump's problem is that he likes to hear himself talk, even if 90% of what he says is just repeating himself. Watching the last debate, the only one I've watched, I was pretty much yelling at the TV for Trump to shut up. He could have been devastatingly effective if he could have trimmed many responses down to just one or two sentences, but many times his hits get lost in his speech affectations. "Let me tell you" and "It's gonna be great" and "We're gonna do it."

The key at this point is really to encourage people to go to the polls, even if they aren't casting a vote for President. In my opinion, all the other races are far more important as it limits a bad President's ability to turn the ship.

Hillary even lies about her MLB team allegiances depending on her audience:

I voted on Saturday morning. Now we wait.

12% fewer Democrats voted early in NC this year than four years ago. Could set up an interesting day here as in 2012, Obama dominated early voting and got trounced on election day by Romney.

Tonight has been unreal so far. Trump doing what he said he would do. 53 electoral votes away, by my count looking at different networks who have called different races. I expect he's got 28 more to come in Utah, Iowa, and Georgia. That leaves 25 to get.

If either can pull both Wisconsin and Michigan, they'll win, IMO.

This is unbelievable. Watching Facebook is a bunch of people freaking out and/or saying they are moving to Canada. Gonna have to fight off the millions of others who want to move there too. Just read that Canada's immigration website just crashed too. :lol: :shock:

It's a shame that the transition to an outsider had to be through such an awful person. At this point you might as well sit back, see what happens and hope for the best case scenario to play out.

Pretty much exactly how I'm feeling right now.
