We still have a chance to save the general election, but the path is narrow.

2. That's made abundantly clear in the charts.

Unfortunately I can't embed the graphic into the OP, but the cool thing is it's interactive.

4. Right, I noticed the change.

Kind of a bummer - their charts are simply arresting.

9. "Snatching defeat from the jaws of victory."

If the party wants to put up a candidate that polls this bad against Trump, well, good luck?

8. Did you see the great video of Lawrence O'Donnell someone posted last week

 

He went over all the polls from every race Clinton has ever had in her career. And she always starts out high in the polls and then she starts to wane, and the opponent starts to rise.
If the vote is held soon enough, she wins, but she has NEVER been able to turn around the trend once her numbers start to go down. . . and already she has gone down below Trump.

10. was that true against Giuliani?

If I recall HIS numbers did the same thing. He was losing in NYC where people knew what a jerk he was. Then as he went upstate to campaign, his numbers started to drop there too. Then they replaced him with some no-name guy and Hillary got her Senate seat.
