My favorite part of last night

might have been the end when Hillary and Kaine interacted.
The smiles and laughter and body language all gave off a very comfortable feel.
Kaine and Hillary may end up being very similar to Biden and Obama as far as friendship.

The Donald is trumpeting this poll out of USC

Anybody know the history of their polling?
This has Trump with a "current" 7 point lead.

For Bernie people who are waffling on how to vote in November.

Take this quiz and see where you stand in regard to Hillary and Trump's positions.

CNN Bounce Trump +10. NBC No Change

So, who do you believe.
5 or 6 post RNC Cinvention polls show different levels ranging on the low end of zero with NBC's poll to a high end Trump bounce of ten with CNN poll.

Does your slant from your anchors and reporters depend on which network you work for?
Do they only cite their own poll as proof of no Trump bounce or a big Trump bounce?

I will be watching this until next Monday when the DNC Conventiom bounce polls release.

My grades for night One

Flotus. A+. One for the ages.
Bernie. A. Under the circumstances, couldn't have been much better or more important.
Booker. A- Just a little long. Otherwise, outstanding.
Warren. B+. By her incredible standards, a tad "lower energy" but still very good.

Can't wait for the Big Dog tonight.

Many will lie to pollsters and friends/family about who they will vote for.

Say you are a Middle aged white suburban woman.
You don't like Trumps bigotry and, even though you disagree with her on some things, you like the idea of the first female potus.
But, ur married to a staunch Trump guy and most of your female friends are voting for him too.
I say that this is the type of person who says they will vote Trump but actually votes Hillary.

Say you are a middle aged white suburban male.
All of your social circle openly hates Hillary and loves Trump.
They often make sexist, racist type jokes or innuendos.
But you are uncomfortable with this kind of thing and you secretly think Trump is an idiot.
This is the type of person who says they will vote Trump but actually votes Hillary.

On the other hand........
Say you are a well educated college professor....male or female.
All of your contemporaries laugh at what a joke they think Trump is.
But, you secretly like some of his ideas on immigration and trade and you are tired of the Clintons.
This is the type of person who says they will vote Hillary but actually votes Trump.

Anybody else have any other scenarios in their real lives of this type thing???

Ted Cruz - A Big Government Theocrat

who wants the government and an evangelical preacher in every Americans bedroom and genitalia.....
He Is the big speaker tonight....where is my holy water that Pat Robertson sold me?

The prayer cloths will be moist with tears tonight while we all sit on the edge of our pews wondering if Lyin Ted will sellout and endorse the man who royally insulted both his wife and father.
Heavens to Betsy...mercy sakes alive...I'm all in prayer over it....please bless our dear bigoted, xenophobic, racist, Theocrat hero Teddy to do the Lawds will and please, oh Lawd burn that witch Hil-Liar-ee at the stake in yore precious name...awwww-men.

Did we hate W and Cheney this much?

Yes, we protested the illicit war and called them war criminals.
But, it was because of what they DID. Lying us into war.

But, so many Goppers just seem to have an irrational hatred for Hillary that goes well past politics or policy positions. I have family members that are normally quite calm that go into a cursing red faced tirade just at the sight or mention of Hillarys name.
It goes beyond sexism.
I think a lot of the Obama hatred was just pure internalized racism.
But, with Hillary, it is as if they take everything in their lives they don't like and project it onto her.

How many members of SCOTUS will Hillary/Trump appoint?
