Topic Wiki

Thread summary:

Trump walks in a room.

1. Moshe123 shoots at him because he is pure evil, 2. ilherman+hachover jump in front of the bullets because Trump is our savior. 3. aygart tackles Moshe123 because Trump is better than HRC, 4. but Baruch can't stand Trump so he tells aygart he's crazy and Trump is a madman. 5. ExGingi would like to point out that who cares what he is, all that matters is the supreme court nominations. 6. Dan and others aren't really sure how this makes them feel plus they don't really want to drink poison. 7. Spoiler alert: Moshe123's gun was empty, it was just a blank.

And Freddie is in the back of the room just cooking his cholent. Until he announces that there are TWO menu choices, Pareve Cholent or Vegetable Lasagna. While etech0 figured out that they are both poisoned.


Repeat x100.

And then Hilary walks into the room with the most confidence a candidate has had in recent history. She is so confident that she eats both the Pareve Cholent and Vegetable Lasagna. Everyone is the room is aghast, they don't know how this happened, could it be Comey is behind this poisoning or was it that her Obamacare premiums were to high to get her the help she needed.

Everyone stared as she choked and was cast into oblivion on November, 8, 2016 the last day she was heard from in the public eye.

Moshe123, ilherman, hachover, Baruch, ExGingi, Dan, Freddie, etech0, and the rest of America are in total shock and hope that so long as Trump doesn't eat any Pareve Cholent and Vegetable Lasagna and stays true to his supreme court nominees this may be the greatest thing to happen since the CSR and GC's.

But remember this may be the beginning of the end...

P.S. Thanks to cognitive dissonance aygart, Michael Moore, and Scott Adams knew the whole time that Trump could win, unfortunately for JTZ he may be off DDF for the next 4 years due to his mandatory 3 times daily consumption of CROW!

As things turns out, the most prescient view on this election was that of Michael Moore! Though Scott Adams is also claiming a high view level of prescience.

All of those in this thread who said Trump has no chance of winning and would lose in a landslide, now would be a great time to start "softening" your stance. Follow Baruch's lead.
Did I ever say that he had no chance of winning? (I may have, please refresh my memory, I don't recall ever thinking anyone had a lock on this election).

BTW, LA Times Trump is +3, (it is an outlier poll, but, who knows?)

Do you have any idea where Romney was in RCP 4 years ago today?

Losing by 4.6 is not close...
Comparing this election to any other is foolish. Throw all preconceptions out the window.

Did Trump mock a disabled reporter?

Wow! I gotta admit, it seems like Trump was innocent. Watch the videos of the same speech where he makes fun of Cruz and a general, it's not as exxagerated, but he makes the same motions.

Why are you picking today of all days? Romney's acceptance speech was on Aug 29 and today was right during his convention bounce. He then went down quite a bit after the Dem convention and only went back up after the first debate on Oct 3.

You have the right to remain silent. Anything you say can and will be used to start a religious discussion.

If Romney was almost tied in 2012 RCP average and lost by 4.6%, what do we make of Trump VS. Hillary 2016? Looks like a landslide loss for Trump?

I hope that I'm wrong here.

I ain't softening. Trump is scum of the earth.

I just said I think he has a chance of winning, and it appears that he really wasn't mocking the reprter.

Calm down. :)

I did, but how can Trump outdo Romney? If he's at the same point now (where Romney was in 2012) and possibly even worse than Romney..

You can't compare Romeny to Trump.

Remember, you have to account for the fluke that sometimes, after you've been starving long enough, you open that refrigerator and for some dumb reason, you reach for the spoiled goulash instead of the safe vegetable lasagna. Only two minutes later do you realize the punishment you have inflicted upon yourself.

They have different opponents. Also, he can very well outdo Romney at the end when Romney just didn't have what it takes to make it to the finish line.

You guys aren't making any sense. Your argument goes like this: Romney who was up in the polls lost in November, all the more so Trump who is down in the polls will lose in November.

But what about Obama? Wasn't he down in the polls? Didn't he win in November?

Don't look at the poll numbers, look at the trend. Hillary is looking worse by the day while Trump seems to be making himself more palatable (which explains the recent softening we've seen in this thread).

I stand by my prediction: Trump will win and it won't be as close as you think.
If you don't care why would you comment?
