1  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: Listen to your gut feeling... on: May 28, 2016, 11:48:03 am
To be honest? Unlike the last two elections where my gut expected Obama to win (and I predicted that both times) my gut this time actually says that Trump will win the election. I just can't see the anti-establishment Trump/Sanders angry political mood culminating in a win for Hillary Clinton. It doesn't make sense. It would be like McCain winning solidly in 2008. I could try and spin it all I want, but in the end, we knew Obama had it from the get-go. My gut tells me this is going to be a good year for Donald Trump.

The level of total freakout from the Hillary crowd on this forum is laughable too. I don't take this message board even half as seriously as I used to. I read it last year expecting the marijuana bill to pass in Ohio, the HERO bill to pass in Houston, and for Matt Bevin to lose because he was "crazy nut" in Kentucky. Literally the exact opposite happened everywhere, and it wasn't that close. Reading this forum is typically a bad idea since the far left dominates it more than ever.

Hmm maybe of Bernie because his base is so strong.

It's amazing how some try and justify bad behavior. All of this helps Trump.

wait wait wait....you think it's guns that are destroying the inner city?  Do gun control nuts actually think that if guns were to go away that the people most affected by gun violence would suddenly become productive members of society and their communities would "stop being destroyed"?



That's insane.  Just so you know.


(and FTR, it's the War on Drugs and it's peripheral damages, specifically what it's done to the men in the communities.  I'm also not saying that if drugs became legal it would be perfect either, but it would certainly be better making guns illegal.)

Well what the hell were we supposed to do, dead0man? Everyone was going crazy. Mr. Nixon PLEASE stop the drugs and crime! Mr. Reagan PLEASE help the crack epidemic! Mr. Giuliani Mr. Clinton clean up our streets!

Were our leaders supposed to sit on their hands and say no? It's not our fault that so many people chose to make poor decisions. But we had no choice then and we have no choice now.

You wanna know the problem with gangs, and drugs, and "mass incarcerations"? Wanna know what has to be done?

It's really as simple as that. The amount of whining from people about laws and cops and stuff and it all comes back to simple facts like disobeying laws.

I remember once I was at work a couple of years ago, and a girl I work with was chatting with me about how the Police had a DUI checkpoint up. She was awaiting a ride from her boyfriend. She was worried. She said, "I sure hope the cops don't stop him."

I told her, "Why would they?" She responded casually, "Well, he has a warrant out for his arrest."

Well, then he deserves to get stopped. Sorry. Somehow not feeling sympathy makes me a terrible person. It didn't used to be that way. It's a result of bleeding heart liberals having blind compassion even in the light of facts showing that punishments are warranted.

We need to jackhammer away with males. She's doing so horribly and male voters are the least likely to sway back and forth. If we can get too many whites to vote against her, all she will have is the McGovern rainbow coalition.

LOL.
We have so many Republicans and trump followers here on Atlas, saying that they hate when the "other side" keeps claiming that the trump campaign is nothing but "white male" voters.
Yet, you have a Pub here, advocating this EXACT campaign strategy. And to just forget about everyone else, including people of color ('the McGovern rainbow coalition").


I'm not proud of the divisions of our country, but this is a campaign, dammit. If I were in charge of Trump's campaign, I'd carpet-bomb the airwaves with Hillary barking, Hillary's coal comment, Hillary's liberal positions. The most unflattering images. Lee Atwater style. WEAK. WEAK. WEAK. In politics, it's about repetition. Trump strong, Hillary weak. Hillary hurts, Trump wins. Over and over and over.

It may not work with all voters, but this certainly has the feel of a change election. Hillary isn't change, Trump is, and that should terrify Hillary supporters.

She is the worse possible candidate for 2016. People don't want someone who has been in the upper echelon of elite society for 25 years. The Democratic Party establishment is so out of touch. Only 1 competitor, and he was a 73 year old socialist. People are angry, and she doesn't get it.

I hope this makes Democrats take a hard look in the mirror, and realize you actually have to court white working voters instead of demonizing them as racist morons.

She's off message, as well. The country says the economy and national security are the top issues, and she's out there discussing gun control (which is a much a losing issue for Dems as gay marriage was for GOP).

Yes, of course I remember it.

Serious question: How young would a kid have been (on average) on 9/11 for them not to remember it 15 years later?  I have some fragmentary memories of when I was 3, but that was of course family stuff, as I didn't know anything about world events back then.  Would someone who was 6 on 9/11 have been aware of it, or been able to remember the day years later?  Where's the cutoff?


Interesting question.

Being born in 1990, the first political event I can vaguely remember anything from was the 1994 EU referendum in my country. But that's an 'outlier' though - other than that I can't remember any political/world event from until I was 7-8 years old.

I was born in 1988, and I have slight memories of the 1992 Presidential election. I remember the Waco Siege. Pretty much 1993-on is solid memories. But I was very into news as a kid.

If Trump were to somehow magically pull off a win, the map would have to look like this:



LOL "Magically".

As a white male what in the hell do I have in common with feminism, black lives matter, or inclusiveness? Hence why we have the gender gap.

You poor, lost soul.  I'll pray for you.

Are you denying the fact that there is a gender gap? Are you saying that other men in America don't feel left behind by today's Democratic Party?
15  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: Priebus: People just don't care about Trump controversies on: May 16, 2016, 04:46:14 am
Maybe Republicans don't care. But there's a reason he has the worst favorability rating of any nominee...ever.

Yeah, and you're a 23 year old man supporting a 69 year old woman who quotes Maya Angelou.



Huh? Sorry to break it to you, but under 30 voters are going to support her in the general, no matter how many imaginary anecdotes (which are about as predictive as Dick Morris electoral maps) you pump out.

How is this relevant to my initial post anyway?

I just find it funny that young white guys on this forum seem to be supporting an old white woman who panders to minorities.

In other words, the reason why I do not want Hillary President is that she offers nothing to me. As a white male what in the hell do I have in common with feminism, black lives matter, or inclusiveness? Hence why we have the gender gap.

I think you guys are way off on this. I'm not talking about the Republican electorate, I'm talking about the entire electorate.

Just a few recent polls:

Federal bank bailout, good or bad?

Bad: 55%
Good: 23%
Unsure: 22%

Government and big business working for or against Americans?

Against: 68%
For: 13%

Should Government programs be enforced to help income inequality?

No: 58%
Yes: 31%

Should there be a shutdown of Muslim immigration?

Yes: 45%
No: 41%

PA/OH/FL

Best to handle the economy?
TRUMP

Best to handle terrorism?
TRUMP

Who is more honest and trustworthy?
TRUMP

How the hell is that only the GOP mood? Those aren't "Republicans only" polls.
18  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Which candidate winning fits the national mood the most? on: May 14, 2016, 11:36:10 am
I heard a Hillary supporter in another thread mention that the "current environment" favors Hillary Clinton and I was kind of taken back by it. I think the whole Trump/Sanders anti-establishment anti-politician backlash against political correctness benefits Trump much more than Hillary. Maybe I'm wrong. I just can't see all the turnout, the record breaking crowds, the enthusiasm, the anti-Washington attitude in both parties culminating with "Textbook politician Hillary Clinton elected. Time's Person of the Year: Hillary Clinton. Headline of the Year: Hillary Clinton."

Am I wrong here? It just doesn't feel right.

Great news! Usually it is the Republicans rushing to defend red states.
21  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: Will Donald and Melania Trump be happy living in the White House.......... on: May 13, 2016, 08:23:19 am
I think she'll be a very stylish First Lady. Probably in a Jackie Kennedy sort of way. They'll live there but travel to Mar-a-Lago alot like Obama and Clinton did Martha's Vineyard and Reagan and Bush had the Ranch.
22  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: Trump needs to win over two-time Obama voters on: May 13, 2016, 08:13:03 am
I know a handful of Obama 2012 Trump 2016 voters personally. Of course, it's just a handful of people in Ohio. I actually get the impression he's really well liked up here compared to places like Colorado or Virginia.

23  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: Is Hillary Clinton the status quo candidate? on: May 11, 2016, 06:35:52 am
Of course.

Look, when 57% of Americans want a President with views opposite the current President, when 7 out of 10 Americans say the country is on the wrong track, clearly Hillary Clinton is in a tough position.

If she wins, it will be in spite of her negatives and the national mood.

LOL @ the Democrat freakout in this thread. It's just a May poll, guys.

Those unfavorable numbers explain it all. Trump is more favorable in Ohio than Hillary is. That makes the difference.
