I think at least one Trump supporter has decided to cook up his own crow in advance so he won't have to eat the other crow that will be passed around on election day.

I've seen a lot of Presidential elections in my past, and every one of them has had some bad mistakes that were made by every candidate in them all.

But I've never seen the like of Trump's mistakes. The frequency, number and the size of his mistakes are astonishing.

For all the world, it appears he wants to lose deliberately, lose spectacularly, and drag one of our oldest and largest political parties down with him when he loses.

This is not just losing an election. This is walking up the side of a volcano, with Trump crying "Follow Me!" as he prepares to jump into the molten lava below, and a million followers get ready to join him as he leaps over the side.

Clinton has the media in her corner and all the puppets on a string and they keep throwing things up and all that is falling is Washington insiders who are disliked already by so may people!

Forget about McCain, Paul Ryan who lost as running VP 4 years ago, etc.

All of them can easily be replaced and it is like the Democrats are scrambling what to do about the energizing bunny called Trump who seems to be unstoppable.

Many people are getting more respect for the man who has showed to be able to withstand bullies and the toughest circumstances that not many of us can with stand!
Little early to be hittin' the sauce so hard, isn't it?

You would surprised ...how many well educated, high income people will vote Trump, but just not letting folks know of their voting prefernces right now ...no one wants someone like HRC in office to try and push policy of taxation

That's certainly not going to happen with Trump. He promises us it will be impossible for anyone to win office again without begging the super rich for money, by eliminating all restrictions on campaign finance donations. Whats so great about that? His supreme court picks are a disaster for salt of the earth Americans.

People claim that massive income and wealth inequality is not a problem when in reality it destroys democracies. When a super rich family can pour billions of dollars into the political process to get what they want, thats not democracy, thats plutocracy. The 99.9% are the losers in this game and the sooner people realize that, the better.

I actually think that is a beautiful sentiment, but there is something to be said for pacing yourself.

Sorry I just don't see a path in the Electoral College to do it, and now polls showing he is tied with Hillary in Utah? He can't afford to lose a State that Romney won, plus he needs states like OH, PA (which it looks like he is going to lose) FL and NH. And he is either tied or losing in those states. His popular vote numbers MAY be impressive, all things considering. But from an Electoral College stand point, he has a tough road of him.

I have seen his list, and most are good in my opinion. I keep hearing this crying of plutocracy. That's total crap. I have one vote and a billionaire has one vote. I understand that money makes an unequal playing field, but the billionaires have the most to loose. Shouldn't they have a greater say in how people want to tax and use their money? Why don't we start tracking taxes dollars paid/per unit benefit gained so we can see how much each person contributes to paying their fairs share - and then decide how much voice they get in determining in how they will be taxed.
