Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Wednesday, September 21, 2016

The latest vote projection from elections guru Nate Silver has Republican Donald Trump just six electoral votes short of winning and one point away from equaling Hillary Clinton's popular vote. The newest Five Thirty Eight survey Trump at 264 and Clinton at 272, two more than needed. It's the closest in recent weeks. Silver is famous for making a prediction of victory and that's nearly close to, Clinton at 51.9 percent and Trump at 48 percent, his closest since the conventions.

More reason for Dems to be in full panic as they realize they ran the wrong candidate.

The DNC really screwed up. and they were claiming they had coattails only 6 months ago.

Jill and Gary never had any hope of winning. None then, none now.

Bernie may have done alright. He is, after all, not a woman. On the other hand he was or could be painted to be any number of dire things certain people already vote against reflexively.

If someone as openly selfish and nasty and unqualified as Donald Trump manages to shlep into the presidency, then the simple explanation for it that God hates us and sent us the Zombie Apocalypse, because only the dead and decayed could possibly see Trump as being one of their own.

He's our Mahmoud Ahmadinejad/Muammar Gaddafi/Evo Morales

We have to look at their examples to see how to defeat the SheepleSchisms and the rest who bring him to power.

I still can't believe that many people are going to vote for trump.

Everything I see in the media tells me that if they have to manufacture evidence of a close race, they will.

If that's true, then the polls are manufactured.

"Jill and Gary never had any hope of winning. None then, none now."

Who ever claimed they did? Neither Hillary nor Trump earned my vote.
In fact, they both leave a pathogenic film behind that repels the informed.

Vote 3rd party, and let the idiot base choose their Chief Idiot. I won't be a party to it.

Of all the victimhood cards the Dems are trying to play, is there any more pathetic that this?

More than half the voting population is female.

It's a ridiculous ploy. they played it way too early on Bernie too, so it's lost its punch.
Although I admit I get a chuckle each time it's thrown out.

Silvers "probability" is too stochastic to be probability.

If that's true, then the polls are manufactured.

Yes....

I still can't believe that many people are going to vote for trump.

I drove to some of the more liberal states in the north, midwest, and across the northwest.

Driving around the country, I rarely saw a Hillary sign, I think the one I saw was in Madison WI. But I saw plenty of Trump signs, hats, and Bernie stickers.

In my part of Texas I've never seen a Bernie sticker. Never seen one for Donald, either.

And half of the male voting population is scared sh--less of vaginas.

After the effects of racism on the current president these eight years, you can't convince me that misogyny isn't even more rampant.

After all, every man has a mother, and many remain miffed she wouldn't sleep with them.

No wonder. With all those racists merged into nightmares about your mothers vagina you should seek therapy.

Also...in these nightmares, do the racists come out from her vagina?

Nice anecdotes. Too bad nobody (even you) believes them.

You two chuckleheads are just different sides of the same retarded coin.

Well, at least I didn't compare firearms to penises. That would have gone much too far.

By the way, that's really what a great many guns are. Dicks.

No Trump signs around here anywhere. Haven't seen the first one. Be nice to me or I'll bring up your mother.

Just searching a way to explain the attraction of the dark side to people such as yourself.

There's been a theory since at least 1945 that the Third Reich was a manifestation of the archetype, Wotan.

I haven't quite made up my mind what old god the GOP is channeling this year. It's obvious I expect that demiurge to be composed of lady parts, firing pins, and an urge to submit.

If you come up with something better, then I'd like to see that.

Doesn't matter. I rarely saw a Hillary sign during the primaries.

Yet she swept the nation.

Expect much of the same for the general election.

#24 Hillary did not sweep the nation

She won some, lost some and stole some.

But I can see how you got confused.

Hopefully the FBI is investigating Zed.

Now that he is attempting to justify his "arguments" with a reference to the Third Reich and the German version of Odin and Valhalla, its almost a certainty.

The Washington Examiner's headline is false. Trump's chance to win wasn't 3% on 538 a month ago. It was 15%.
