Wisconsin Hillary +6.5

The national polls were pretty clear. There's a compendium of them here. Most of them had Clinton beating Trump by a couple of percentage points. The popular vote was just that:
Clinton: 65,844,610 (48.2%)
Trump: 62,979,636 (46.1%)
Source: http://www.dailywire.com/news/11777/how-...s-barrett#

See the difference? A couple of percentage points. Pretty much as predicted.

The polls, alas, were pretty close.

That's the problem with polls. You can't predict the winner of the electoral college with national polls (but those are the ones people mistakenly follow the entire election). And the state polls are very innacurate. I looked at the polls over and over the entire election cycle. I saw the same thing repeatedly. More democrats polled than republicans. I don't believe Trumps numbers are as low as they say. Republicans won all 4 special elections. I would expect at least one to flip. Especially that South Carolina one that was a blue district as recently as 2010. And that Georgia special election won by the republican? The democrat was +7 in a SurveyUSA poll 3 weeks before the election and tied the day before, but the republican won by like 6 points. My honest belief is that the liberal media polls are purposely trying to suppress the vote by giving democrats an insurmountable lead in the polls. They hope some republicans see the polls and say "fuck it. My guy has no chance. I'll just stay home."

RE: Stupid shit Trump says over Twitter
So the subreddit The Donald is where Trump got his epic takedown of CNN from. Consider The President of the United States has nothing better to do than browse subreddits of vulgar devotees? These are some of the posts by the clever and creative HansAssholeSolo who doctored the tape. He seems more of a protégé than a devotee.

I sure as shit hope Mattis has already swapped out the nuclear football for a dummy.

RE: Stupid shit Trump says over Twitter
Quiz:

Can you identify the tweets by Donald Trump and those that are fakes?

The mere fact that they all sound plausible should give everyone pause (are you listening Senators?).

If by giving the Morning Joe its highest ratings ever means being played for fools, then I think the Beerzinski and Scarburrow are perfectly happy to be played.

"According to Nielsen’s second quarter ratings, MSNBC’s total viewers are up 73 percent year-over-year, with primetime viewership up 86 percent, easily making it the fastest growing cable news outlet.

Anchor Rachel Maddow has become a cultural icon on the left while also attracting a younger audience of viewers. MSNBC’s share of the coveted 25 to 54 demographic grew 78 percent in primetime over last year. Their primetime audience has nearly tripled since second quarter of 2014.

Scarborough said over Twitter that his show had a record month for ratings."

I have never watched the show before, but now that The Trump is railing against it - he's the president, does he have nothing better to do? - I'm curious to watch an episode or two.

Which in turn makes it look like he's telling the truth about their agenda. This kind of stuff got him elected. And will get him reelected. The media didn't learn anything from the election.

Trump didn't really want to be President. That's why he did all those outrageous things in the campaign. He expected to lose. What he wanted was to stir the pot, get his face prominently in the limelight, and to be able to point the finger at the establishment and how nothing ever changes - as proven (or so he thought) by his losing the election and an establishment candidate winning even as "bad" as she was.

But, oops, he won after all and now he is absolutely clueless about how to conduct his responsibilities. So he's resorting to the only thing he knows how to do. He's punting.

And the scariest thing of all... his supporters STILL think he's legit. Facepalm

Trump is such an imbecile. Buzz Aldrin can't believe what a clueless idiot is standing at the presidential podium. trump's such a moron.




Shakespeare's Comedy of Errors.... on Donald J. Trump:

He is deformed, crooked, old, and sere,
Ill-fac’d, worse bodied, shapeless every where;
Vicious, ungentle, foolish, blunt, unkind,
Stigmatical in making, worse in mind.

He looks like he's in physical pain. Laugh out load

Oh man I laughed to tears just now. Thank you. Smile The beginning was hilarious.

Trump: I've felt very strongly about it for a long time.
