If trump loses the southern white vote, he will get slaughtered, imo. My prediction is that Trump will win the southern white vote by nearly as big a margin as Clinton wins the black vote.

What do you mean by entirely straight? Is this statement true, truthy, or Trumpy?

It would be nice to unload the southern crackers back on the Ds.

Are you kidding? Do you think that southern whites are going to go for Clinton over Trump?

mell says

he did move a tad bit to the religious right.

To me, it looks like he 'shifted' a huge amount towards religion, but that he is being totally disingenuous. He's just as PC as anyone, except for Donald, political correctness involves pandering to the religious right.

mell says

In the end people perceive him as somebody who speaks their language without political correctness and stands up for their traditions as well, not just for the minority-du-jour that is trending and needs to be cuddled.

I completely agree that his base sees it this way. To a lot of other people, he just seems like a racist and sexist guy who wants to cry PC when people point out his foibles. It is ironic that the DNC would use religion as a political tool, but not surprising. All of these polls will use unethical attacks when it suits them. Trump will do so personally, because it suits his personality, as well as through surrogates. Clinton will do so mainly through surrogates, because she doesn't want to look like an insult comic.

The reason is that he is strongly against persecuting Christians for their beliefs and strengthening culture and tradition.He doesn't care what you believe in or what you don't as long as you respect western values and don't try to impose your beliefs over tradition.

The reason is that he claimed to be a Christian and hold their views (e.g. on abortion) instead of the views that he has held for most of his life. He also promised to put a social conservative on the Supreme Court. Bernie wouldn't do any of that, and would get creamed by Trump among evangelicals. Some Christian leaders have been making friends with Jewish religious leaders to make an alliance to combat the fact that our society is becoming more and more secular. Well, guess what? Bernie is not really religious at all. People like papa bear O'Reilly and nasal breather Hannity would skewer Bernie in the general election on religion. The only reason that they did not do that in the primary is that they were rooting for him to do maximal damage to Clinton.

The Clintons have always been centrists. Hillary is to the left of Bill and ran to the left of Obama, but she's still somewhat of a centrist, and hawkish for a Democrat. In a time when national security is a big issue, she picked a guy who serves on both the Senate Foreign Relations and Armed Services Committees. It sounds like she picked a guy who has a similar political stance and good experience on national security. It makes sense. Trump, on the other hand picked a bumpkin who is most famous for making it legal to discriminate against 'the gays,' and who has relatively little national security experience. It was a pick that made no sense, and Trump reportedly tried to back out of. But, Trump had to pick him (a conservative ideologue) to deflate the NeverTrump movement prior to the convention.

No one ever believed that the RNC or DNC remained neutral in the respective primaries. The only difference, is that the RNC got Trumped, and was not successful.

The fake Trump CL add seems like a great Onion piece. Would that be illegal? It may be against the CL terms of service and punishable by death under Sharia law, but mockery is not illegal. Trump may want to make it illegal, but he has to become chairman of the board or dictator or whatever office he is running for first.

Arguing that Bernie isn't religious enough is bad? Are you guys fucking serious? I would love to live in a world where an atheist could run for president, but if you think for a second that the Evangelical party (RNC) would have presented him with a Yamulke and given him a high five, you're an idiot. He would have been picked apart on that issue by Republicans, including the "Christian" who never asks for forgiveness and has no ethical standards (Trumplestiltskin).

Next?

What an asshole. Trump has built an organization of over 22,000 employees and over 500 different business enterprises. Does it make you feel like a bigger woman when you tell such blatant lies?

Show me the tax returns.

What about men with flat feet or bone spurs? Can they get a pass, or do they have to stay in Syria to fight their war?

Hot Damn. Coulter just tea-bagged Lucifer just like that fabulous male stripper does to the canned ham Rove every week.

Speaking of tea-bagging, does that Republican subgroup still exist? If so, is the Donald one?

Trump has great leadership skills,

He's offered little proof of this, and a lot of proof to the contrary. Are we electing Trump as President or electing Trump to pick someone else to be President? If Pence is his pick, I'm not reassured. If there's going to be someone else behind the curtain, Trump should pick that person soon so that we can see some improvement and get some idea of what the man behind the curtain will do/tell Trump to do/whatever.

The focus on law and order and the country going to hell in a handbasket is particularly odd given that murder rates throughout Obama's term have been lower than through Bush's term. http://patrick.net/?p=1293472&c=1306598#comment-1306598

You're very persuasive with the copy and paste keys. Someone ignored me here, and I've been perfectly content not creating aliases to post stupid crap on his threads. Your behavior when people ignore you says a lot about your mental state.

Real Fact: Terrorism has increased substantially during Obama's 8 years. His weak and "nice guy" policies are a disaster.

And I am someone who supported Obama's reelection.

Obama gets blamed for doing to little and too much at the same time. He certainly made some mistakes in hindsight. On the other hand, Trump claims he will show more restraint and that he will go kick everybody's ass at the same time. There is nothing specific, and no consistent message. Further, he's shown time and time again that he doesn't know what is going on in the world (what's Brexit?), what is legal (not torturing and killing families), what's should definitely be off the table (defaulting on debt), etc. 'Trust my instincts' and 'I have a really good brain' are his primary talking points. Bizarre.

Real fact: So homicides increased by 17% even though Obama spent billions more to fight crime. Wow. Obama screwed up.

Bush's last two years in office had 17000, 16900, and 16400, for an average of 16800.
Obama had
2009: 15400
2010: 14700
2011: 14600
2012: 14900
2013: 14300
2014: 14250
2015: 16121

So, in Obama's worst year, there were less homicides than in the average of Bush's last 3 years. In fact, Bush only had one year with less homicides, and that was 2001, his first. In that year, there were 16037 murders. In 2001, the population was 281 million. In 2015, it was 320 million. So, In Bush's lowest crime year, there were 5.7 murders per 100,000 people. In Obama's worst year, there were 5.0 murders per 100,000 people.

So, even in Obama's worst year, the murder rate is 12% lower than in Bush's best year (before he had a chance to fuck things up).

It's amazing that Trump can spin whatever yarn he wants and people eat that shit up. If you take the worst part about the evening news, amplify it up to 11, pass it through a bloated Cheeto poof with a hairdo that makes a Toupee look good, and you have Trump.

This speech was full of Trumpiness, and free of political (or other types of) correctness!
