thought this was the punting thread not the conspiracy thread?
This and the next post that is not punting related is getting deleted and the offender is getting a thread ban regardless if you are replying to someone that may have quoted you etc.

Take it to other boards that are discussing the election and it is not like it is not being discussed anywhere!

You can currently get some good odds for Trump being president in November, which has already shortened slightly in the last few days.

Hillary Clinton is weak, tired and engulfed in political scandals. Her lead in the polls is slipping by the day.

However, the mainstream media absolutely despises Trump and rarely ever criticizes Clinton, so that may be a significant factor to consider.

If trump wins the US dollar will freefall, you're better off going long the Aussie against it than simply backing trump

Trump takes the lead as Clinton's support dwindles

Trump catches up to Clinton

Trump still at 3.75. Pretty good odds for someone who's now ahead in (some of) the polls. Of course, different polls will suggest different results. But don't forget only a few weeks ago, Trump was trailing badly in ALL the polls.

Clinton is now making a minimal number of public appearances, spending much of her time dealing with FBI investigations, with questions over the state of her physical health. I can't really see her doing much to arrest this slide. Her only hope is for Trump to say something incredibly stupid again (which is not out of the question) and shoot himself in the foot.

dont forget that many of the people who listen to his message and might like it aren't the sorts who will necessarily rush to the polling booths (voting being voluntary in the U.S). duritz might actually be on the money (so to speak) above as a better way to make $$

Have been listening to a podcast called Keeping it 1600 which is on the election, it is biased towards Clinton as the guys who are hosting it worked for Obama during his election, . Every week they get less and less confident Clinton will win. its kind of scary really!!

Its a smart move the ole reverse pyschology. Any pro Hilary comments would be glossed over, but negative Hilary comments will be stop & think!

Not sure you can win in a landslide when you completely alienate women, hispanics, blacks and people with a college degree.
The key is not to alienate those you know will vote and can vote. Along with focusing on the key districts which will win you the presidency. The presidential system is basically how people want our senate system to be. Different seats having different clout!

They'll be more confident after that debate. Stop and frisk cannot be supported by any rational person, conservative or progressive.
