7. Interesting point...

 

Most people that I know in the real world (who are not DU or Right Wing partisans) are generally not particularly happy that it's the Abomination Vs. Clinton and wish there was an alternative, but going third party either way is recognized by both sides to not be the answer because of how much is at stake and as such feel pretty trapped.

With regard to the fluidity suggestion, I respectfully disagree - the contrasting choice is so stark this time out that moving the needle one way or the other seems less likely to me than in just about any other general that I can remember (I began voting in '88 so I don't have decades upon decades of experience however). I just have a hard time seeing anyone who is a supporter of the Abomination moving towards Clinton or vice versa, there just seems to be such deep visceral aversion to one or the other.
