I know it's premature, but I'm enjoying some schadenfreude with my chai

Some people here castigate me for my guilty habit of reading the mess that is Freepfuckville- which I do at least once a week. But man, it's like watching lucy snatch the football from Charlie Brown. And that is so much fun. The freeps are in complete denial, convinced (again) that all the polls are made up and that the Trumpus will win in a Reagan style wave election. Well, most of them are, and the ones that dare voice, ever so meekly, that the polls were right 4 years ago, are verbally crucified.

I can't help but look forward to election night when Freepfuckville totally loses their shit. Again.

I won't link to the thread I'm enjoying with my chai out of deference to those who object.

Trump had the highest unfavorables in the primary and still won it. This means nothing.

There is no law against the MSM making up a poll to twist public opinion. That’s what a lot of these are, I suspect.

It’s the Republicans’ constant criticism that hurts him. People tune out partisan Dem statements.

The GOPe is trying to save it’s RINOs by driving away as many Trump voters as they can. And they’ll end up without the Senate or the Presidency.

If you think the media is going to print or broadcast anything positive about Trump you’re kidding yourself. Nice to see after a bad poll or two some of you are already throwing in the towel. That’s why the left beats us constantly. The RINOs give up and so do a lot of so-called conservatives too.

Part of this is non-stop MSM negativity. I googled the name ‘Donald Trump’ and got 20 stories all bitchy, whiny nasty dreck. Then I googled ‘Hillary Clinton’ and got 20 stories, all glowing fiction about her wonderfulness.

It’s worrisome but its still early in the game. It doesn’t help that all the republicans who pledged to support the primary winner are reneging on their promise. Also the mealy-mouthed slime from Ryan and his ilk doesn’t help. If the republicans don’t go all out and support their nominee, they will NEVER have another chance. They’ll lose half their membership and even then, it won’t matter because the democrats will import enough new voters so that a republican will never again hold national office. This is exactly what happened in California so as far fetched as it sounds, its a very real possibility.

In the end, I’m certain that turnout will turn the tide. Everybody hates Trump except for the voters who will turn out in greater numbers than for Clinton. Keep in mind that polls can’t measure this.

The entire Government is corrupt and the mass of Americans are so used to corruption that they cannot tell the difference. America is in great trouble and you can tell by the forces that are trying to ruin Trumps chances.

Trump for President.

unforced error
I have been for Trump from the beginning of the debates. Unfortunately, the opposition can make a very brief video with a series of Trump's very few unfortunate statements, especially taken out of context. People watching this in practically a loop will never even know what he stands for. I am praying that he can break through the biased media.

It’s a poll of adults - 40% of whom won’t vote, another 10% are ineligible to register. Notice they didn’t publish any internals. The negatives probably rose among those who would never vote for Trump, but hadn’t been paying attention until recently.

You're a brave soul to wander through that muck, cali.

I, too, enjoy seeing the Republicans in distress or denial. The latter is best, I think, because their loss will be so much greater if they don't expect it.

The Republicans are the single greatest threat to our country. They need to be crushed!

They all thought Romney was going to win in a landslide. The dawning realization that the GOP was losing was priceless.

There was nothing more delicious, EVER, then watching Karl Rove sputter like Porky Pig after Romney lost. He actually made Megan Kelly walk down to their room where the guys made the call for Obama and castigate them for not waiting until the polls were closed. It was so delightful.
