1. the fact that nearly 40 percent polled think that this hate-mongering, dangerously deluded

waste of oxygen and resources is fit to sit in the oval office is appalling. but that is what happens when our education system is deliberately broken.

12. No that's what happends when you have a politically-polarized country

 

At least 40% of this country would vote for a rag doll. Why? Because most people are voting against someone, not for someone.

That's what American politics has become.

25. Chris Matthews on am Joe had exc comments on why trump's popular in Ohio

And other battleground states. Hillary needs to strategize about how to get these voters to her side. The gist is they've lost jobs and want change and to them, Donald is the change candidate and so is Gary Johnson. She needs soundbites about Donald's overseas ventures and Citizens United.

13. It's what happens when your "news" media become a voice for RW corporate interests

and constantly spews hate toward anyone or any position from interests that stand in the way of said RW corporate interests.

Looking at the chart, I guess Trump can take satisfaction in knowing he outpolled Hillary in one category - most likely to start a nuclear war. That's probably a badge of honor for his knuckle-dragging, mouth-breathing, inbred voter base.

2. Wonderful Graphic..and I believe fortelling of the election..Just 37% vote for Trump

Yep, I think that is all he will get on November the 8th. But we will see..One thing this shows, Hillary is very very likely to win. and for me......that is all that is important..

14. Trump winning 37% of the vote would *still* scare the shit out of me.

Because I would have to live with knowing that in my everyday life, 3 out of every 8 people I came across actually voted for that raging dumpster fire that The Bad Hair Day spread all around.

Shudder.

18. Seems like a low number to me

I already assume, statistically, every other person I run across is a raging idiot. Some stripe of teabagger, gunhumper, or just plain intentionally uninformed, faux snooze watching moron.

That assumption seems to serve me quite well.

22. That's a pretty safe assumption

However in past election cycles it's been plausible to also assume that people are un/misinformed, and give them some degree of benefit of the doubt.

Trump is so obnoxiously a fascist dumpster fire, in a way that not even the shrub could remotely approach, that affording such leeway is no longer possible.

9. A lot of the people who think he's more likely to start a nuclear war consider that a feature

not a bug. After all, why invest in nuclear armaments and then not use them? Why should we be a pitiful helpless giant with our hands tied behind our backs by the librahs? Blah blah blah.

10. wasn't there a GOP state level representative

that said a few years back that what's the point of having nukes if you don't use them?

I'm sure this guy LOVES Trump.

16. There may have been a state rep somewhere that said it.

But Donald Trump has also said it.

Rooting for Trump for a strong second place finish in the election.

21. What This Matrix Really Shows

Is the high percentage of people where the answer to every question is the same so it is not the issue that matters but only the person/personality that matters and that roughly 10-15% wouldn't answer the questions - have they not been paying attention? Indeed, the nature of some of these question would make one think that they would total over 100%. The middle 3 questions, for instance, looks like candidates could get yes-yes and no-no answers in addition to yes-no and no-yes answers.

26. Not issues, not person but anger is motivating them

To be fair, the rustbelt is a mess, congress is getting nothing done and the Don will change it all. Boy, will he. Just likehugo Chavez and his bus driver did in Venezuela.
