State of the election

Post by MaxEntropy_Man on Mon Nov 07, 2016 6:29 pm

FL and NC seem to be turning Hillary's way slowly. If she loses MI or PA which Drumpf is targeting big time, she'll need one of FL or NC.  NV and NH are the hardest to read. This is very much Hillary's election to lose. I am assuming at this point that OH and IA are lost causes.

My predictions:
OH and IA will turn orange.
NV and NH will remain blue, if by small margins.
MI, WI, VA and PA will all hold comfortably (more than 2 percentage points each).
FL will remain blue but will reelect Rubio. NC is a toss-up (both Senate and President). Clinton will win more than 300 electoral votes. Actual tally will depend on what happens in AZ, GA, and the district-level votes in ME and NE.

The networks will call the election for Clinton when the polls close in PA, with PA and FL in her column. Look for a call to be made soon after 8 pm Eastern. It will be pandemonium on the evening commute in the Bay Area tomorrow.

Dems will get to 50 in the Senate, but that will only be called much later in the night.

If Clinton loses MI, she lose the election. Because a loss in MI is not likely to happen with out other states moving in similar direction.  She has to hold MI, MN, WI, and PA.

Not necessarily. I don't think PA and MI are that correlated. She can lose MI and still win it if she wins FL.

Wonder what autopsy report 2.0 will conclude. Orange is not the new black?

This is what the base will take away:
Obama is responsible for Trump taking over their party.
Trump was a Trojan Horse sent in by the Clinton machine.
Mainstream media set up Trump during the primaries only to take him down in the general.
Trump wasn't extreme enough. He should have talked more about deportation force and punishment for abortion in the general.
Trump lost because of his character flaws, not because of his platform.

This is what the leadership will say:
We need to be more inclusive.
We can't win by relying just on older white people.
Latinos, African Americans and Asian Americans are all natural conservatives.

They are the party of other people's personal responsibility, so neither group will take any responsibility for nominating an unqualified racist, misogynistic, xenophobic, narcissistic, plutocratic sexual offender.

Different strokes for different folks but the bubble headed thinking of the so called liberals, their smug self superiority, severe lack of empathy for the economically marginalized and utter contempt for anyone with a different opinion makes one feel like saying "serves you right!"

The irony in all this smug-libby conversation is that the onus of becoming more understanding is on the liberals. They are the one being told to understand and respect rural or conservative people. Not once have I seen an appeal to the rural people to understand and respect the liberals. When liberals ask for this they are labeled as smug. the people who are leading this 'liberals need to drop their superiority' campaign probably know very well that if there is any chance of one group of being more tolerant of the other, it's the liberals not the rural conservative folks. Then, they can ask nicely, no? Why shame them into it?

I am glad you enjoyed it. Here are my predictions for how the GOP will be treating all this by 2018. By then it will be abundantly clear that the God Emperor has no clothes (or religion), even to his ardent fans. At that point, they will need to cut bait.

Obama is responsible for Trump taking over their party.
Trump was a Trojan Horse sent in by the Clinton machine.
Mainstream media set up Trump during the primaries only to take him down in the general took him down with their negativity and liberal bias.
Trump wasn't extreme conservative enough. He should have talked more about implemented deportation force and punishment for abortion in the general.
Trump lost his way because of his character flaws, not because of his platform.

This is what the leadership will say:
We don't need to be more inclusive.  
We can't can win by relying just on older white people. Older white people can still win us elections, as long as we can keep the "poorly educated" people's resentment of the educated alive and well. And depress turnout among young people through alt-right conspiracy theories.
Latinos, African Americans and Asian Americans are all natural conservatives.
