    What's he gonna do? Declare bankruptcy and then try to restructure our debt? That's about the only economics he has experience handling.

    To believe, especially at this point, that the polls carry any credibility toward predicting the outcome of the election one would have to be pretty ridiculously gullible...

    ...apparently CNN is already wrapping themselves around such ploys in the belief people are ignorant enough to be swayed or excited by their "findings"...

    A poll is simply a snapshot of the moment. I take no poll seriously at this point. Too much can happen between now and November to be much taken with a poll at this point.

    As we see in another thread citing a poll there are vast differences. All this tells me is that it all depends on how the poll is constructed and who constitutes those who are asked their opinion.

    The moment being inconsequential is merely evidence its nothing more than a ploy.

    Then what is the point of repeating it?

    This is true.

    Now you're thinking!! ;)

    Considering the next 5 months here will no doubt be filled with people posting these ridiculous polls as if they have some sort of meaning...IDK...I might have to go see if the Calvinists are ready to be more reasonable instead rather than the liberals and/or RINOs here... ;)

    Yes, just look at these ridiculous and wildly inaccurate polls from the first week of May 2012.

    You go right on ahead and count on all those Hillary victory polls and enjoy yourself, knock yourself out!

    ...but in the end she will lose and you should remember that I warned you not to believe in those polls. ;)

    You tell me where you're going to find 3 million more voters than Romney got in 2012. You're going to need at least that many to make it a contest. Plus, you better find another million or so women since Trump has alienated at least that many that would have voted Republican.

    At least three things make it folly to try to predict Hillary's success.

    knock-down-drag-out campaign that's coming, Trump is far more insult skilled than Mrs. Clinton
    She may be in an orange jump suit or indicted long before its over. News just this AM.
    Trump's talent and charm charisma, women beware - he will razze-dazzle you for your vote.

    My opinion of course.

    This campaign has defied the polls from day one.

    Right, that's number 4 Aaron, probably number one in reality.

    And let's face it: Trump will overwhelm Sanders.

    Honoring my previous message a month or two ago: Since it looks like Trump has garnered the Republican nomination, and I'm not sure there's a Libertarian worth voting for, I'm out of this election. We've hit "Idiocracy" and don't even realize it....

    It doesn't really matter who wins the election, the true losers will be the American people. I really wonder if God has just given up on the US, or if this could be the setup to the end of this age. Why else we would be left with the two evils to chose between.

    I do worry what my families younger generations will have to endure, and can only pray for them to be strong Christians no matter the cost. I think of that Ray Boltz video for I Pledge Allegiance To The Lamb, and the man talking with his son. How far are we from that in this world?

    I don't know what he was banned for, but I never saw anything ban-worthy, and in a crisis would rather have him defending us than the pseudoconservatives like ITL and Zaac.

    So what, Hillary was over sixty points up on Bernie, and look at it now. CNN just said Hillary would win Indiana and she didn't.

    The election is over six months away still and anything could happen. Ras had Trump up by two, a dead heat if the option to stay home is given:

    Hillary is the one in big trouble now because she has to generate more enthusiasm or she's never going to be able to beat Trump.

    When it really counts do you really see Trump giving Hildefelon a pass on all her legal problems like Bernie did. Now with it seeming that they have evidence that her private server was hacked, it should make charges mandatory, and if found guilty the death penalty should be on the table for her treasonist acts, which did put this country at risk by her providing the opportunity for our enemies to have classified info.

    If it was hacked, and it has already been shown that she had sensitive material on there despite her lies about it, the firing squad sounds good, where can I sign up.
