There is little support for Trump's counter attack on Bill Clinton, with 69 percent of respondents disagreeing it was a smart move.

Overwhelmingly, the insiders think Hillary Clinton will win Florida. Seventy-nine percent made that prediction, including 63 percent of the 81 Republicans who completed the survey.

The election shattered his image as the mentor that nobody asked for into a million tiny pieces. He hilariously ****ed himself with that teachable moment posting.

Whatever the MSM can do to depress Republican excitement.

Why even show up to vote? Every outlet already said Ohio was solidly Democrat.

That is why he won both times. Large crowds showing up alone won't get you to the White House. You have to take care of the minute details that build up to victory. Trump envisions the big picture while standing on a crumbling house of cards. That is why he will lose.

Then....BAAMMM!!! That person ends up being right and you were dead wrong all along. The embarrassment combined with the creeping suspicion that perhaps you are the retard and not the other way around is too much to handle. That's what I suspect happened to Don, Deuce and others, and why they fled with their tails tucked underneath their legs. The shame and refusal to stand around and eat crow for months was too much to handle.

Also keep in mind that the gap in quality between Trump's shitty ground game and HRC's may be the largest in history, and if the RNC pulls its funding, the gap will only grow. Pollsters aren't taking this into account, mainly because competing ground games are usually much closer in quality than this one.

Bad news for Donald: The general consensus is that the candidate with the superior ground game gets an extra 1-1.5 point in swing states. That could prove fatal in OH, FL NC, etc. Trump is in deep shit.

Interesting. I guess we'll see what happens.
