Labour's 'cryurbating' over being somehow being deliberately targeted, the list being from shock, last October and 'wait what do you mean they don't take into account voters who aren't registered' faux outrage makes me want to support this whole sh-tty exercise now.

Someone said Trumps bump today is mostly from a huge swing in black support, any truth to that?

Racially yes, alongside the polls heavily Trump Hispanic sample. The black support may just be a 'burp' as the same thing happened earlier in the track.

He also leads amongst 18-34 year olds by 4 points, which is also a fair jump.

The fundamentals of the tracking poll have always had these factors built into them.

So this poll shows that there is a lot of crossover voting that probably won't happen or that there is a realignment?

It is tracking a sample of voters that isn't necessary an appropriate sample. No other tracker, even reuters is showing a Bush '04 level of support amongst Hispanics.

For the benefit of our newer posters, there's a long-standing Atlasism that Winfield's posts are infinitely more entertaining if you imagine him sitting in some Newport mansion wearing a monocle.

With Beet as Don Knotts.

Put a sock in it. I have no idea what's biting you in the ass but while I can accept the lack of comprehension in your posts and writing style, there's no need to go off on one against someone you don't actually know, nor have ever asked to know about them.

It's Breitbart.

Even though Joe would pummel Trump like a dockside hooker they won't not should they replace her.

So she has pneumonia and still goes to pay her respects at the 9/11 memorial. Class act.

So after playing at armchair medics we are playing armchair secret service too.

St Bernard tells us that God the Father did not demand the Son's sacrifice but accepted it when it was offered. The other argument that you seem to be making--that the Atonement was immoral because it prevented sinners from getting what we deserve good and hard--is so repulsive as to not be worth considering.

Generally the rap on the prohibition on divorce is that it's naive, romantic, and unrealistic about what relationships are really like, not that it's (in intent) 'anti-love'.

I think the issue stems from the fact that we, in the first instance, are guilty of an original sin that is not of our own doing. Putting that aside, the remission of sin, which was the shedding of blood through sacrifice (which was cross cultural) is in itself barbaric. And what is essentially being accepted that that is just as true today as it was 'then'; that Jesus' sacrifice matters because sacrifice matters

As Ingersoll said; 'no man would be fit for heaven who would consent that an innocent person should suffer for his sin.'

If we are guilty of an arbitrary 'sin' by the creator, then we should stand guilty of it. For we are doing nothing other than what is in accordance with ourselves.

Yes. Millennials are really attracted to mindless homophobic preachers. I must have missed that memo.

Dem hacks, do you honestly believe she should stay in the race?


I fainted at my work once. Should I have been told to quit?
Lol, what a comparison...

Why not answer the question instead wankstain?

Of course the Deplorables would own the label. Proves her point.

The reason why the media and many others have indulged in talking about 'e-mails' is that it acts as a welcome white noise machine. It's easier to talk about because it seems so mainstream. It deals with a professional 'misdemeanor' by a professional person. They like talking about it and her not talking about it. It's comfortable. Like a 'Choose Your Own Adventure: Woodward and Bernstein' for journalists.

Turn that noise machine down and you're faced with Trump who you can't debate on usual terms. You can't even interview on usual terms. So yes, they do end up having to 'normalise' his rhetoric and his support base because journalists must be seen to balance, at least on the surface and if not 'balance' give due air to the other side.

But sometimes the other side is dangerous and saying dangerous things. And sometimes that is all that it is. And a free press never, ever knows what to do with that when dangerous ideas become mainstream. Trump is the ultimate GOP chimera; a beast made up of all the worst, most cancerous bits of Republican rhetoric since the Gingrich era that have been hurled at the left and at minorities, and used against both Clintons and all Democrats since, sewn together and made flesh.

This is actually the chance for the centre-right to kill that cancer. For the sake of American democracy, for the sake of breaking congressional deadlock and reversing political polarisation, Trump needs to be whipped and pummelled at the polls. 'Trumpism' needs to be flayed open and publicly bleed to death, because only that way can the GOP actually start anew and halt it's rightward drift. Hell it's not even a rightward drift; it's a drift towards the dark corner of conspiracy and innuendo. And for those people, Trump is a useful idiot; a handmaiden of the 'alt-right'. He has to be bloodied at the ballot for the sake of the next few decades of political discourse and in order to make up for the last few.

If you drill down Reuters this week (by selecting Hispanic voters only and giving them 100% turnout), they don't have enough in NM to display any data.

On FiveThirtyEight, an Ipsos poll has Trump leading here. Is this legit or no?

Answer in bold.

She's been too passive in her rhetoric. This is good for the Democratic base.
99  General Politics / Individual Politics / Re: Enoch Powell vs. Donald Trump on: September 10, 2016, 11:54:24 am
Both very dangerous, but Powell was at least more interesting, vastly more intelligent and probably a somewhat better person.

Enoch Powell, racial/immigration politics aside (though we cannot do so; it's the political equivalent of trying to divide zero) has a string of notable 'FF' achievements; advocating for slum clearance and beginning to take apart to old Victorian institutions that effectively imprisoned the disabled and mentally ill. He was an early advocate for people with mental health issues. It didn't mean he particularly liked the people he advocated for mind you...

Trump doesn't really have anything on Powell.

Anti "safe space/SJW" people have always and forever been the people that wanted and needed safe spaces the most for their nasty opinions.
