Title: Electoral College Update
Post by: Eddie on October 20, 2016, 11:00:40 AM
Any of these forecasts could be wrong, but it's highly doubtful that ALL of them are wrong...and they all have Clinton winning by a very substantial margin.

Yeah, I think the only thing left for Trump is the power of the self-defeating prophecy, i.e., if Clinton supporters don't bother to vote because they know she's going to win anyway.

What I find amazing is that if she can hardly get 200 bums on seats at rallies, that should translate into people going to vote when its optional. In the recent federal election here, I put the two major parties last and second last, as did a record number of others also. Obviously if it were not compulsory, many of those would not have voted at all.  But there is a lot of coverage and interest of this particular US election. The debate was showing on a TV while I was eating lunch yesterday, I couldnt hear much above the noise in the eatery. I only had about 10 minutes but caught the woody allen lookalike  interviewer telling the crowd to quiet down after something Trump said, im guessing it was related to corruption. If thats where the actual energy is, and I believe very few Bernie Bros will vote at all,  I dont trust the polls.
