@Lash,
Still insults rather than honest answers. Ok. So i'm actually a Russian citizen and I thank you for your generous help in electing our candidate tRump, so we can take all of Europe without U S intervention.

An interesting piece on Hillary's stance on gun control came out today. The whole will be at the source but below is the list.

Quote:
She wants to expand background checks. She is pushing for comprehensive background check legislation, which would include banning all domestic abusers or the severely mentally ill from buying or possessing guns.

She wants “no fly, no buy” policies, which would prohibit people on terror watch lists from gaining access to guns.

She wants to close the “Charleston loophole” which allows a gun sale to proceed without a completed background check if that check is not complete within three days. According to the FBI, it’s how Dylann Roof -- the shooter in Charleston, South Carolina who killed nine parishioners at the Emanuel African Methodist Episcopal Church last June -- was able to get his gun.

She would ask Congress to close the so-called “gun show loophole” and require any person engaging in a high volume of gun sales -- particularly at gun shows and on the internet -- to be held to the same standards as sellers at gun stores.

She would repeal the 2005 Protection of Lawful Commerce in Arms Act, which prevents victims of gun violence from holding negligent manufacturers and dealers accountable for violence perpetrated with their guns.

@ehBeth,
The totals are the same today but some switches from red to pink and tan.

gotta watch Mississippi, Missouri, Iowa and Nebraska - they're not big numbers, but they may be thin-edge of the wedge states. North and South Carolina continue to be interesting.

Who's a Likely Voter? Makes a Big Difference in this New Texas Poll

September 15, 2016

A new Texas Lyceum poll gives Donald Trump a six point lead over Hillary Clinton among likely voters in a head-head match-up. That's pretty much in line with other recent Texas polls. What caught our attention is that among all registered voters, it is Clinton with a four point lead. That's a 10 point difference.

I don't think Mississippi is going to vote Democratic in this election. Missouri seems to be a pretty safe state for Republicans as well, though not like Mississippi. The others might be contested.

Granted that the Electoral College is what actually elects the President, I'm not feeling too comfortable with the idea of Hillary's lead is not safe in the popular vote, but she's got the Electoral College wrapped up. I think we'll see if Trump continues to pull even or surpass Hillary in the polls, the state polls will even up. Of the five elections before 2000 where the popular vote winner lost the Electoral vote, the Electoral vote winner was not behind more than 1½ percentage points behind in the popular vote. In other words, the race has to be razor close in the popular vote first before the possiblity of the popular vote loser winning the Electoral College emerges. If Trump stays even for long, we'll likely see him make big gains in the Electoral vote.

@ehBeth,
They tried that "likely voter" BS back in 2012. Gallup showed a five point difference between Likely voter and Registered voter throughout the campaign, all in favor of Romney. Democrats complained that the screening process the Gallup poll used to determine a Registered voter's likelihood to vote was skewed toward Republicans, and it was. Gallup became something of a laughingstock in the polling world that year, for falling for the Republicans' analysis of who is likely to vote.

Really depends on who turns out to vote. A large minority turnout might just turn Texas blue, or perhaps purple, this year.

Battleground Texas has been working to get the vote out. The demographics are in the Democrat's favor, but there's a lot of voter apathy. I think the idea that Texas is solidly red is pure marketing.

@DrewDad,
Texas isn't red or pink on 270towin. It's a surprising tan.

My point is that it shouldn't be a surprise. That's the marketing I was talking about.

We've got some precious idiots here. O'George gets two down votes for bookmarking the thread? I voted him up, and i don't particularly like him. This idiocy needs to stop.

@Setanta,
Yeah, it does need to stop. Perhaps there should be a comment box beside the thumbing feature and if you don't fill out the box with an explanation and who you are, you don't get to use the feature? Or something like that.

George H W Bush 'voting for Hillary', claims member of Kennedy family

Quote:
President George H W Bush is reportedly voting for Hillary Clinton in November, according to a Facebook post from John F Kennedy’s niece.

The post by Kathleen Kennedy Townsend – the former lieutenant governor of Maryland and daughter of Robert F Kennedy – shows her posing with George H W Bush with the caption “The President told me he is voting for Hillary!!”

Townsend – writing on Facebook under the name Kathleen Hartington – has been a longtime vocal supporter of Clinton’s campaign.

Jim McGrath, a Bush family spokesman, told the Guardian “The vote President Bush will cast as a private citizen in some 50 days will be just that: a private vote cast in 50 days. He is not commenting on the presidential race in the interim.”


I guess if it is true Bush told Kathleen K Townsend who he was voting for she can't keep a confidence very well.

@revelette2,
Just about every other site i visit does not have a vote-down option, although you can vote your approval . If you don't like someone or their post, you can report it or just suck it up.
