Latest state polls are savage for Trump. Clinton up 13 points in Virginia and 14 points in Colorado.

For all the talk of Trump being some political savant who re-writes all the rules, who knew? Turns out that acting like a racist nationalist retard wins you the GOP primary but is less successful in winning you the general election vote.

I'm sure that's all coincidental though. Yet, Gbajinites wonder why the GOP repels minorities.

I like his latest:

Trump: Obama Founded ISIS.
Media: Did you hear this ****?

Conservative Radio Host: You mean his actions lead to the vacuum that created ISIS?
Trump: NO, he literally founded it, Clinton too. I don't care what you say.
Conservative Radio Host: .... Ok... moving on.
Media: Did you hear this ****?

Trump: OMG, did you see how the media didn't get I was being SARCASTIC!


At this point it's like he is really trying to lose. Doesn't seem to care about actually appealing to those minority and independent voters. Either that or he thinks that Social Media is real life, and all those Likes he gets on Twitter are translating to Votes for him in some sort of Nielsen-Voter-Rating system.

Clinton is polling +10 in Pennsylvania, yet Trump is saying the only way he can lose it is if Clinton cheats. Calling for security guards and police force out to watch the polls...

They already have people who watch polls. Unimaginatively they're called "poll watchers" and, if you have a campaign that's not run out of the back of a station wagon, you send them as a representative of your party/campaign to go hover around and annoy the poll workers.

Are you saying that Trump should have his people annoying the poll watchers, rather than making foolish statements about polls during speeches?

Edit:
Ok, I completely derped there. You were talking about the whole suggestion that they put police and guards there.

Rick Hasen at Election Law Blog notes that this effort may be violating a court decree that the RNC (or its agents) conduct any poll watching that could be interpreted as voter suppression.
Quote:
In the consent decree, “The RNC agreed that the RNC, its agents, servants, and employees would be bound by the Decree, ‘whether acting directly or indirectly through other party committees.” Does Trump count as the RNC’s agent in these circumstances? They are certainly acting in concert, and it is plausible to argue that Trump and the RNC are agents of each other for purposes of this election. Also, the activity Trump is talking about engaging violate the consent decree? One thing the consent decree says is that they must:

(e) refrain from undertaking any ballot security activities in polling places or election districts where the racial or ethnic composition of such districts is a factor in the decision to conduct, or the actual conduct of, such activities there and where a purpose or significant effect of such activities is to deter qualified voters from voting; and the conduct of such activities disproportionately in or directed toward districts that have a substantial proportion of racial or ethnic populations shall be considered relevant evidence of the existence of such a factor and purpose…

Trump's remark that they need to watch "certain areas" likely wouldn't help. Adding to the RNC's headaches, the decree was set to be lifted on Dec 1, 2017 but a violation could cause another eight years to be added.

He wants to win without being the President. He's sabotaging his run so he wouldn't be president.

Trump spokesperson, Katrina Pierson, wants you all to know that we weren't in Afghanistan until Obama invaded and that's what formed ISIS. This is the same member of the Trump brain trust who said that Obama's military policies led to Cpt. Khan dying in 2004.

Well then I'd certainly like to know where the hell I was in 2002, because that's some Wolverine Weapon X memory implant level conspiracy.

Not too sure why the Clinton people are bothering to get involved. Trump seems plenty capable of shooting himself in the foot without the extra help. Guess it doesn't hurt to keep up the pressure though.

So Gbaji, what's your call for the election?

Is Trump going to win? Will the GOP keep the senate?

Well, Trump has side-lined Manafort and brought in Steve Bannon, chief exec at Breitbart, to run his campaign. So I guess that'll make the MRA voters happy. [Edit: Indeed this guy looks like he should be angrily arguing Gamergate somewhere...]

Word is that Trump was very upset about the "Campaign trying to wrestle in Trump's insanity" stories and Bannon is essentially more Trump: wants big rallies, attacks on Clinton and a strong nationalist/populist message.
