Even after their stunning win, the Atlas forum Trump supporters are much more restrained than many resident Hillary supporters were before election day.

My answer would be McMullin. I'm glad I wasn't in a position to vote, though.


Also, what a disgusting thread this has become.
4  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: Which state stunned you the most? on: November 10, 2016, 03:47:14 am
Florida and, to a lesser degree, Pennsylvania but that was because of the weird way some results were reported on CNN. Even at the point when most of the votes in Broward, Miami-Dade and Palm Beach were already in, CNN's maps on TV reported that only a minority of votes had been tallied in these counties. Blindly trusting these figures and expecting a lot more Democratic votes to be added in the following hour, I thought far too long that Clinton was actually on track to win the state.

CNN did the same with Allegheny County, even John King got visibly confused during the broadcast! When more than two thirds of the votes were counted in in PA as a whole, the map showed Clinton with around 320,000 votes in Allegheny and a lead of roughly 100,000 votes with only 25% reporting. This led John King to pause for a brief moment and then claim that this meant Clinton might still catch up with Trump in the state.

I thought it might happen at around 9 pm ET when Trump had a sizable lead in Florida and it became clear most of the votes in Dem strongholds had been tallied. For quite some time before CNN kept showing only 19% had been counted in Broward so their pundits claimed Clinton could still win, both of which turned out to be wrong. That was confusing and embarrassing on CNN's part.

Paul Ryan's side, which for all its faults at least doesn't regard politics as mere entertainment.

16  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: Overall effect of the debates on: October 20, 2016, 02:49:24 am
The poll numbers clearly show that Clinton has benefitted from the three debates. Trump simply can't compete with Clinton when it comes to handling detailed policy questions.

That said, assuming the election is already lost for him I think Trump did what he had to do in last night's debate. Claiming the election was rigged is a mistake but he stopped the bleeding by being calmer and more considerate than before. And thanks to the emphasis on SC nominations and abortion right at the beginning of the debate he gave hesitant right-leaning voters a reason to hold their nose and cast a ballot for him.

Polls suggest Rubio is overperforming Trump by a lot so I expect his margin of victory to end up in the high single digits.

McMullin, from a political point of view but also because we absolutely need some excitement at the state level in an otherwise depressing race.

You are confirming my point, Windjammer.

Your side on Atlas dishes out quite relentlessly. Fair enough. But you have to be able to stand the taste of your own medicine, otherwise you come across as thin-skinned.
22  Forum Community / Forum Community / Re: Opinion of Chairmansanchez on: July 26, 2016, 01:03:00 am

And I don't understand what he did to piss so many people off.


Many Hillary supporters on this site are comically thin-skinned, that's the reason for this thread. Check out the DNC convention thread.

Voted FF. Sanchez provided a lot of entertainment last night!
23  General Politics / International General Discussion / Re: BREAKING: Major terror attack/shooting in Munich on: July 23, 2016, 05:09:52 am
From the press conference:

* attacker was in psychiatric care
* was taking antidepressants
* failed recently at a school exam
* amok literature was found in his room
* no connection whatsoever to IS or radical Islam

Have they explicitly mentioned "radical Islam" at all? From what I have understood they merely ruled out ties to IS.
24  General Politics / International General Discussion / Re: BREAKING: Major terror attack/shooting in Munich on: July 23, 2016, 02:26:05 am
While the police investigation is far from concluded we may assume that this is yet another instance of radical islamic terrorism. A mix of factor seems to have been the reason as the terrorist is said to have been mentally ill. This obviously raises the question how such a person was able to acquire a gun in Germany of all places.

25  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: Conservative Christian pastor would vote for Trump over Jesus on: July 20, 2016, 03:20:53 am
I strongly disagree with the pastor's words. That said, the title of the thread is highly misleading and should be changed.
