How many Sanders supporters were Obama supporters in 2008

and what did you think of the PUMAs? Think HARD about that one.

Gary Johnson, Trump spoiler, Koch supported, wins Libertarian nom

This is the guy that's going to siphon tons of votes from Trump. Has the backing of the Koch brothers. Will easily cancel out the Bernie or bust vote and then some. In a couple months everyone will know this guy's name.


Respected Moody's model, right on every election since 1980, predicts Clinton win in November

Donald Trump is in trouble, according to a model that has correctly predicted the winner of every presidential race since Ronald Reagan in 1980.

This time around the model -- run by Moody's Analytics -- says a Democrat will win the White House. Hillary Clinton is widely expected to be the Democratic nominee.

It's a bad sign for Trump. Moody's has been predicting a Democratic triumph since last August, but the margin of victory is getting bigger for the left as the economy has stayed relatively strong and President Obama's approval rating has risen.

The reason a Democrat will win isn't about polling or personalities, it's about economics, says Moody's. The economy is the top issue in just about every election. When the economy is doing well, the party currently in office usually wins again. When the economy is tanking, Americans vote for change.


Trump already helping crumble the Paris Climate Accord

Say bye to the environment if Trump wins! Trump already said he will CANCEL America's involvement in it, which will basically destroy it.

When the general election heats up, people will know who the real enemy is.


I am no longer reading threads on Sanders. (In the HRC group either) The primary is done.

For those aware of the facts, the general is on now. Hillary knows it. Even the one who finished second knows it and behind the scenes has admitted it. Jane accidentally admitted it a few days ago saying Bernie will be back in the senate after Cali votes. This whole primary now is one big attempt for BS to get leverage over the DNC platform. That's done already. BS got five seats, Hillary got 6. (Another admission of defeat). The only thing left now is headline bait laid by the 2nd place finisher. It's irrelevant, unhealthy, and I am moving on to the real election.

Bring on Frankenrump

Thank you, GOP, for destroying yourself and making Trump the nom.

He will be the easiest of all to beat. The Democratic leadership had been hoping all along it would be Trump. He will alienate all but white hacks and racists, and the rest of the REAL America, the beautiful melting pot which is now the majority, will vote Hillary. The small percent who write in a candidate will still be irrelevant, and the #nevertrumpers are welcome! Bye GOP! You had a good run! Historians will now tell the tale of how the tea party took its own party behind the shed and put it out of its misery.

By the way, GOP, the term is "Madam President." Best to start practicing.

Newsweek explains very well why the email scandal still isn't a scandal

From Newsweek:


I really donít want to write this column. I know that just from reading the headline, a large number of people will immediately start wailing that Iím a Hillary Clinton partisan, and they wonít bother to read even this first paragraph. I also know that plenty of journalists paralyzed by groupthink will attack what I have to say.


Media will announce Hillary the nominee 3 hours before CA voting ends

She will probably be 30-40 delegates away when the polls in jersey open. (There are 2 small primaries before June 7, which will put her within 30-40). Jersey polls close in the east coast 3 hours before California, which will easily give her the nomination. At 8:00 eastern time, expect the media to call it for Hillary. California won't even matter.

June 7, 8:00pm. Keep your tv on

Imagining a Trump Cabinet. I'll start - Chris Christie Attorney General. Palin? Ann Coulter?

Ok so here's a list of Trump supporters. There are many more I won't be able to think of right now.

Sarah Palin (knows 48 words, working on 49)
Ann Coulter (went off her meds 18 years ago, calls herself Ann)
Mike Huckabee (interested to see where Trump would put this one)
Ben Carson (who the fuck is this guy?)
Newt Gingrich (tried to destroy America once, hasn't given up hope)
Shill Hannity (dipshit used car salesman, down to the hair)
Orrin Hatch (also looking to finish the job of destroying America)
Rick Santorum (in Texas, History is fiction)
Rush Limbaugh

Those who think the majority of these people could never be in our government - you are wrong. This is what the never-hillary people are asking for. Thankfully, they'll never get it.

How pissed were you in June of 08?

I was looking at GDP and its descent into madness, and as I was thinking about rebuttals to the many anti-Hillary threads, I had a nagging feeling that I can't judge these people harshly, because they reminded me a little of myself in 08 when Hillary was losing. I am not excusing the extreme "blow it all up" assertions; helping Trump in that way is incredibly self destructive. But deep down I see the humanness of their reaction. I also know that when they calm down, someday, they'll see this thing more clearly, as I do now. Some of them never will, and they aren't a true part of this process anyway. They exist only on the sidelines.

This last bit of clinging to the email "scandal," a classic anti-Clinton GOP imagined attack, is particularly sad to witness. It's the most focused on issue right now solely because it is their last hope of winning. And yet because of what's at stake, Sanders defeat, they can't see it was a GOP fake scandal all along.

What about you? What were you feeling in June of 08?
