Yeah, the only unknown at this point is turnout. We just have to hope that the "Trump must NEVER be elected" sentiment trumps the "Clinton isn't what we want or need" sentiment.

They're both in it for the power and prestige more than any desire to actually effect change but at least Clinton has some idea that actions have consequences which gives her some self-control. I don't think Trump understands that at all or has any ability to control himself.

I keep picturing him meeting Queen Elizabeth...

I think she does want to effect change, the power is just a bonus.

My impression is that she wouldn't mind effecting change, especially if that reflects well on her. It is a means, not an end. On the other hand, I don't think she'd intentionally do significant harm just for her own aggrandizement whereas Trump wouldn't even bat an eyelash at potential negative consequences if he got the least crumb of attention out of something.

Poll: Clinton leads by 12 points
http://www.politico.com/story/2016/10/cl...ews-230199

“Clinton’s 50-percent-to-38-percent lead over Trump in the first ABC News tracking poll, which is comprised of interviews conducted Thursday through Saturday, represents a swing from an ABC News/Washington Post poll following the second Clinton-Trump debate, which showed Clinton ahead by just four points, 47 percent to 43 percent.”

If you look at the findings it says if you are a woman, a minority and the more educated you are the more likely you’ll be voting Clinton. Nothing new here.

Jesus Fucking Christ. 38% of the vote??? Fuck. Nearly 40% of you guys think this ass-clown should be president? Faaaaaaaaaaaaaaaack.

An 'ass hat' used to be called a 'bustle'.

This is exactly why in the US you never want to have a jury of your peers decide your innocence, 4 out of 10 jurors are going to see things very differently than you’d expect.

Oh, hell yes. I serve every chance I get (when called). I have seen terminal stupidity in jurors. If nothing else, my vote will counteract one of them and we'll be a hung jury. The stories I have... No
