    What collection of battleground states is Trump going to win to get him to 270?

    Trump could win Florida, Ohio, Iowa, and North Carolina and he still wouldn't get to 270. (Hillary currently leads all of those except Iowa by the way).

    Trump almost has to win Pennsylvania to have any shot and he's currently still down big in that State. (Clinton plus 8 in a poll out today). R's haven't won PA in a long time.

    Does anyone actually even think Trump is going to win Florida after that immigration speech riled up the Hispanics?

    Anyway just curious to hear what path to 270 Trump can realistically pull off?

    I've said it before, we're stuck with choosing the lesser of 2 evils.

    Tough decision to live with by I'd have to go with Clinton.

    Trump, in my opinion, is way too much of a wild card to be given that much power.

    If you can't make up your mind, flip a coin. We're fucked either way.

    BTW, if Clinton wins, what are the last 2 decades going to look like through the eyes of future generations? Except for Obama, we've all been trapped in this Clinton/Bush dance since the 1989 to 2009. Hillary wins add at least 4 more years to that.

    20 fucking years straight - 2 families representing the U.S. for the last 2 decades.

    How the fuck did we get here?

    A bunch of voters worried about how much of a wildcard another candidate would be?

    Haha..yeah I really get the impression most Trumpers dont understand how the Electoral College system works.
    People forget that Bill Clinton years were very prosperous for this country.

    True. But Clinton is a mild headache and an upset stomach. Trump is cancer. I'd rather choose the former than the latter.

    I live in Pa and travel in many liberal circles for business. I have never see the level of anger on both sides of the aisle.

    My liberal friends were all Bernie folks and they are either going trump or not voting at all. Don't be surprised if pa goes red

    You're probably 100% correct.

    From Nate Silver's site:

    The bursting of the tech bubble in 2000, and the subsequent recession, revealed that the 1990s boom was, at least to some degree, a mirage, the result of cheap money and, in then-Fed Chairman Alan Greenspan’s famous phrase, “irrational exuberance.” The recession that followed the tech bust, however, was relatively mild. If that were the worst consequence of the Clinton era, it might seem a small price to pay for a decade of solid growth.

    But the Clinton boom, and even some specific Clinton policies, also helped sow the seeds for the far more severe Great Recession of the late 2000s. Mortgage-backed securities and subprime loans weren’t invented in the 1990s, but they expanded greatly during the period, part of a broader “financialization” of the U.S. economy that contributed directly to the severity of the Great Recession. Critics on the right argue Clinton-administration policies promoting increased lending to low-income and minority applicants contributed to the subsequent bubble; critics on the left, including Bernie Sanders, argue that Clinton’s deregulation of the banking industry paved the way for the crisis.

    Bill Clinton deserves, at most, a small sliver of the blame for the financial crisis. But he probably doesn’t deserve much credit for the late-’90s boom, either. The reality is, presidents have at best limited influence over the economy. Clinton’s economic policy was determinedly centrist: modest tax increases, free trade (including the signing of the North American Free Trade Agreement) and limited government regulation and spending (the latter due in part to the Republican Congress). Those policies no doubt affected the economy, for good or bad. But their impact pales in comparison to that of forces beyond Clinton’s control: the rise of the internet, the entrance of the baby boomers into their peak earning years, the “peace dividend” that came from the fall of the Soviet Union.

    It is a stretch, then, for Hillary Clinton to argue that her husband — or anyone else — “knows how” to ensure a good economy.​

    I don't see it that way... You could argue that trump WOULD do something, but then you'd have to look at Hillary and what she HAS DONE. For someone to have been in public service since the Nixon administration, you'd expect them to have accomplished more... Err... Something.

    Her signature effort: hillarycare was an abject failure, she has the stench of failure and scandal floting over her perpetually and she cannot even muster what should be a slam dunk: women's rights, due to her involvement in covering up her husbands sexual exploits...

    ... And you wonder why the dem playbook is to make this election a referendum on trump... If it were anything else, she'd be sunk.
