1  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: Who wins the 2nd debate? on: September 27, 2016, 09:31:53 pm
Poll's question is ambiguous. Pundits agreed that the first debate was won by Clinton while most polls declared Trump's victory. Actually theere should be two options:
1. Who wins the second debate? (pundits' opinion) 
2. Who wins the second debate? (polls results)
The polls that were actually scientific thought Clinton won easily. Rigging online polls is not scientific.

Pretty much certain he's Derek, so if he isn't banned already

Clearly Trump, though I'll be interested to see the effects of today.
7  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: If the election was held today, who would win? on: September 16, 2016, 08:46:37 am
Still Hillary, though it'll be closer than it needs to be.

I stated this on AAD and it's been said here on Atlas I'm sure but I feel like a close Hillary win might be even worse for the country than a Trump win. Trumpism won't be discredited, they'll be enthused and more aggressive, and I'm pretty sure Trump will be a terrible President no matter what so that'll calm down all the Trumpies after 2020.

Enduro I don't know a lot about but he doesn't seem awful.

L.D. Smith is a good poster, doesn't really offend me and his perspective is at least interesting. I remember there being some controversy around him, but that might be a certain clique on AAD being arseholes.

Kal is a forum icon. Yes he can sometimes be kinda lame, but when he hits, he hits. Adds so much to the forum, and I'm glad that the death thing was a sick prank. Well, in the sense that you're still alive.

Making a hundred posts per day + derailing every thread + defensiveness + sharing policy "proposals" and #analysis no one cares about = obvious Derek sock
Yeah, seriously. Felt this way as soon as someone pointed him out to me.

I don't really like empty quoting so I'll be a bit more efforty here, but obviously all three are great posters. Not much more to say, they add heaps to Atlas (especially the first two) and aren't arseholes.
11  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: If Clinton loses, is she the national version of Martha Coakley? on: September 14, 2016, 11:33:41 pm
Kinda, though I doubt she'd have lost in Massachusetts. I don't think her campaign is as arrogant as Coakley's was, but it certainly isn't good.

This makes no sense. Surely you'd wait until 2020? I don't think Murkowski's beatable in a General Election.....

Don't know. It's a path I'll cross at a later date, during a long-term relationship. I can't see myself making a great father though, at least right now.

RFayette I'll be honest I didn't like the path he was going down politically and personally about 12 months ago, but thankfully he's become far less nutty/judgemental about his personal views. FF.

Vosem can be kinda hackish at times, but his posts are generally interesting to read, and he deserves respect for his Trump attacking. Mostly FF.

Haven't seen Enduro much, so can't really judge there.
15  Forum Community / Forum Community / Re: Opinions of the 3 preceding posters on: September 12, 2016, 08:12:34 am
Sunrise is a great guy despite strong political disagreements. Obvious FF.
Murica! I'll admit I didn't really enjoy when he first came on Atlas - found him a cheap knock-off of TNF - but now he's cool.
Less said about Computer09, the better.

Haven't been on a flight longer than about 3 hours so it's hard to assess. But in long car rides I can't, so it's doubtful.

Battenburg - haven't seen all that much of him, but seems cool from what I have.
LLR - quality poster, especially considering he's like 14.
windjammer - one of the nicer guys on Atlas/AAD, top bloke.
18  Other Elections - Analysis and Discussion / Congressional Elections / Re: Updated Sabato Senate race ratings on: September 08, 2016, 07:03:11 pm
I still think that PA should be a tossup. McGinty is only up by 0.5 points in the RCP average.
TBF, that's because of one pretty extreme outlier. That Emerson poll is so far from belief it should be discounted.
19  Other Elections - Analysis and Discussion / Gubernatorial/Statewide Elections / Re: Sabato changes several gubernatorial ratings on: September 08, 2016, 09:31:33 am
If North Carolina isn't a Tossup, then why is Missouri? Both should be Lean D IMO.
20  Forum Community / Forum Community / Re: How racially diverse was your high/secondary school? on: September 06, 2016, 03:49:09 am
In terms of cliques though, was very segregated. In high school (especially senior high, less so junior high) most of the Asians hung around people of a similar racial background (with a few notable exceptions), ditto whites. Most of the 'ethnic' whites were fairly assimilated though so there wasn't really a Greek or Italian clique for example, however it probably would be the case out further west in Sydney.
21  Forum Community / Forum Community / Re: How racially diverse was your high/secondary school? on: September 06, 2016, 03:39:43 am
Depends. Junior high, was probably ~60% white, ~35% Asian and ~5% Other. My actual class was more Asian-leaning as I was in the highest class for intelligence and they tend to be the most studious/intelligent in my experience. Senior high was more white (probably about 70% white?) as the smartest people at my junior high changed schools and where I live is very white so those who wanted to go to a specialist senior campus were almost all white.

In primary school....it was so diverse that for many of my classes I was often the only student in my class to have both parents born in Australia.

Internal ----> Trash


That being said, I won't be surprised if Johnson's performance is the worst of any incumbent republican senator (yes, I think Kirk could do better).
At least Kirk will overperform Trump. I'm not sure if I can say the same for Johnson.

Seriously, is Trump trying to lose?
24  Forum Community / Forum Community / Re: Best celebrity cameo in an Atlas Timeline? on: September 04, 2016, 09:17:11 pm
Voted Hughens, although lol @ both.

But the best cameo in an Atlas timeline was Snowstalker in one of Hashemite's timelines IMO.
25  Other Elections - Analysis and Discussion / Congressional Elections / Re: Who will win these Senate races? - September 2016 on: September 04, 2016, 09:15:31 pm
Have Dems picking up (in decending degree of confidence) Wisconsin, Illinois, New Hampshire, Pennsylvania, Indiana and North Carolina.

Picking North Carolina over Florida is bold, but I have a feeling. Might change in coming weeks though.
