Well, one thing is for sure, guaranteed.

No matter who wins the election, 20% or more of people are going to have serious mental health problems.....

:noclue:
"Are" going to have....? I think at the very least that number has long ago been exceeded. You're going to get a good taste of just how far gone a huge number of Americans are who will lose their minds when the results of next month's election is finally revealed regardless of which side wins.
No doubt. Also the number of people hopped up on pills and meth. Funny( not really). A lack of affordable healthcare really can have consequences.

Polls are crap?

Yeah....probably....all polls are mostly crap. :scared:

But also polls need to cover their asses when the results completely upend their narrative..... :noclue:

What happened in last week?

50 Cent, Ice T, Kanye.....? who knows ....:noclue:

So people don't tell the truth to pollsters...? No doubt that happens. 4 years ago was ample evidence.

Why do we pay so much attention to polls?

News doesn't care/can't manage to see what's happening on the ground. Sounds like deja vu all over again to 2016.

This is a real major problem.....there is a complete disconnect between the media and what people are really thinking/feeling. :noclue:
Poll: 2 in 3 voters say it's 'likely' that people lie when taking political surveys
About two in three voters say they think it is likely that a significant number of people are not truthful when responding to political surveys, a new Hill-HarrisX poll finds.

Sixty-six percent of registered voters in the Aug. 29-31 survey said it is either very or somewhat likely that a significant number of people lie when talking political surveys, compared to 34 percent who said it is unlikely.

The survey found broad agreement across demographic groups over how people approach political surveys, though Democrats in the poll were less likely than Republicans to say that people lie in polls.

Sixty percent of Democratic voters said they think people lie when responding to political surveys, compared to 70 percent of Republican voters and 67 percent of independent voters who said the same.

The survey follows post-convention polling that has shown Democratic nominee Joe Biden maintaining a lead over President Trump nationally, though Trump has seen his numbers tick up in some areas.

Some political observers have questioned whether polls undercount GOP support and if some respondents may not fully reveal their support for Trump when taking a survey, making his support appear lower than in reality.

An Aug. 19-27 study conducted by CloudResearch, an online market research and data collection company, found that roughly 11 percent of Republican voters and 10 percent of independent voters said they would not report their true opinions about their preferred presidential candidate on telephone polls.

Emily Ekins, research fellow and director of polling at the Cato Institute, noted that some differences may also emerge when a person is speaking with a pollster on the telephone compared to completing an online survey.

"People feel social desirability bias where they might lie about certain opinions they might have or who they're going to vote for," Ekins told Hill.TV.

"But a lot of our surveys today are conducted online including this survey and in those cases I think there's a lot less evidence that people are going to be lying about their responses when there's no one else on the other line," she added.

The Hill-HarrisX poll was conducted online among 971 registered voters. It has a margin of error of 3.1 percentage points.

b) In all total, I have a bet with Hype for $60 for a book from Amazon of one's choice, for: 1) Flat out Biden electoral win, or 2) 46+ state electoral and +55% pop vote for Trump. Also a couple avatar swaps here for a month. Do I really think Trump will get 45+ states, hmmmm....maybe, maybe not. I think I'll survive.
If Trump gets 46+ states, we all lose a lot more than $60. :jasper:
What do I get for a weird drawn out death of American democracy?

Uhhhh....


a) 2 Presidents...?

b) 3 Presidents.....? (if Biden can't manage to get his bearings and gets lost on the way to the white house..... :no: ....but kamala knows where it is, and finds her way?)

c) No Presidents......? And a new Prime...... (Speaker?)..... Pelosi

d) All of the above....?

e) None of the above.

I guarantee one of these outcomes....see we're alright. :noclue:

You just might get a book or two out of it though...... :wink: :lol:








UHF for the time being....... :thumb:

Trump's short press conference today was ....something. All the tv networks cut out of it just a few minutes in.

Just saw this in The Australian - our national paper:

CNN anchor Anderson Cooper has this morning described Donald Trump as somebody who resembles “an obese turtle” on his back, kicking his legs around, because he hasn’t won.

It’s quite the image, and we should, of course, refrain from personal attacks.


It’s enough to say that Trump’s performance at his press conference today was disgraceful.

Sounds like even he doesn't believe the stuff he's saying. Where's his enthusiasm given how well he's done, and how he's gonna win?

I guess if he wanted to he can come back and run for president again in 4 years. It hasn't happened very often.

Would you settle for disgraced, bankrupted (for real, not just the pretend kind for tax-purposes), and ostracized from public life?

I blame social media. Trump personifies social media. He is king. Social media will need a new vitriolic menace if/when he exits. It doesn't work otherwise and will never go away....


What a bunch of garbage everywhere...... :no:




And for better or worse, Trump will be/remain a hero and be loved by tens of millions of Americans. :noclue:

If we didn't prosecute Bush Jr, Dick Cheney and Rumsfeld and co for lying to the American public and UN to drag us into unnecessary wars in the Middle East, there's no way anyone will go after Trump on National charges. It would be stupid and further divisive for Biden and the Dems to focus on burning Trump when we're still in the middle of a pandemic and a cratered economy.

Now the New York AG, that's another story.
