    Wow. Their internals must truly be in freefall.

    With the West Wing? Most millennials will ask what the heck is the West Wing (a new fried chicken joint?).
    I just hope they have a secret plan to fight inflation.

    Let's revisit this quote on November 9th. I am serious.

    Why would their internal poll numbers in September be relevant to the result in November?

    Who knows? Maybe her desperate attempts to win over voters by recruiting Hollywood to prop up her campaign will be successful.

    I never really understood this Hollywood endorsements. I think they're highly overrated, we're not in the 1960's anymore. I don't think that people really care.
    Plus, I think they're lame. I find them irritating even when they support my candidate of choice.

    It has nothing to do with what I was saying, however:
    1) Doesn't surprise me. Status quo is almost a religion for my coworkers.
    2) Source?
    3) So? Should it change my vote?

    1) Donald trump is not someone who goes against the status quo (like Steve jobs or tesla or any of the plethora of famous innovators). He just destroys things and commits crimes and above all lies like his life depends on it.
    2) I pulled the specific 80% out of no where you got me there, but don't tell me you haven't read way more govt people endorsing her than trump.
    3) nope not at all. I agree celebrity endorsements are dumb. people should make their own informed decisions. Doesn't stop people on this thread from saying I'll have "blood on my hands" (a direct quote from someone here) if I vote for Clinton and trying to guilt trip me into voting for someone else. Ill give the trump supporters here that credit though, those people are in the minority.

    Which proves that despite the news articles claiming Bill Clinton called Trump shortly before Trump put in candidacy, their long friendship, and all the other circumstantial hoopla, Trump really is not a plant driven to make life easier for Hillary.

    You up voted my post a couple days ago when I said that "desperation" is over used.

    if millenials were voting for her you'd just call us stupid. oh look trump supporters trying to use another group (the first one being bernie supporters) to show their faux concern around a group of people. millennials despise trump and everything he stands for

    Man, it would be so great if it turned out to be true though. The ultimate bird thrown to the system, delivered by two of the worst pols we've ever known, BFF pretending that we must choose between them when they're the one, the same, the only Hillary Clinton and her fake opponent with the orange glow of earnest competition about him.

    I hope this keeps Reince Priebus awake at night, wondering... "But who will play me in the movie?"


    More along the actual thread topic of fiction v reality:

    Fiction: this Congressional District is gerrymandered to be permanently red.

    Reality: There are now signs for Zephyr Teachout (progressive Dem) in a lot of yards in the boondocks here, I'd say two to one v the GOP hack. The incumbent GOP critter is retiring and the hack running for his seat is starting to have to spend heavily to keep up w/ Teachout in the polls. I think Trump is having some negative coattails already, and in some unexpected places. Or else the GOP hack is such a terrible Albany-type hack that even the Trump fans have Teachout signs in their yards. Meanwhile Bernie urges his supporters to back Teachout. The GOP hack must be freaking out. A socialist backing a progressive. Trump fans buying in! Chaos! Panic! Disaster!
