Gee, it's so much fun watching all the polling experts on TV explaining how they really didn't miss with the predictions LOL
To be honest I did not think Trump had a chance. Well until Sunday and Monday Drove from Western Colorado to Canyon City, then thru Cripple Creed on the way back. Stopped counting Trump sighs after 40 or 50. All thru rural Colorado, never saw 1 Hillary sign, probably 200 Trump signs on the 500 mile trip.
If they close all the prisons in Canyon City, it will be a ghost town. Grandson serving 4-8, talk about a great plea bargain. High on meth, 12 gauge shot gun on his lap, paranoid, 2 girls in back of car, hit spikes at 105MPH, bounced back and forth between guard rails. Tried to exit vehicle, door was jammed, used shotgun to open. Cops returned fire, missed, caught up and knocked him to the ground, beat the shit out of him and off to Jail. Served 5 year so far, now 26, may get out in February,
2 years ago went to Denver, his sister on drugs, living on streets, turning tricks. Took me a year to get her charges, no shows, etc cleared up, then this spring she got a job the Democrats say no American will do, Picking Peaches. 100-104 degrees, worked at roadside stand after harvest, now working in hot house for same orchard.
Will try and rescue DJ, get him into auto mechanic school, fixing cars instead of stealing them. OOOPS. not trying to steal thread. But I mean, not one Hillary sign in 500 miles. Who were these experts polling ? ? ?



what a buzzkill

Local LV Fox 5 news just had a story about a crazy man who never bet anything before who made a bunch of bets on Trump leading up to the election and he made 124k.

Was that you MaxPen?

That dude has an extra zero on me. Good for him though.

I just bet a maximum allowed $195 to win $50 on Roy Moore. I'll probably come back later and pop it again. I'm surprised the polls say it is even close, given that we're talking about Alabama here.

New Fox News poll has Jones up 10 points. Article explains possible discrepancy between other polls, but should be a close race.

I've said all along that I think Moore will win (it's Alabama).

I'd be happy to be proven wrong this time, though!

Here's a wildcard nobody seems to have brought up yet; if the result is close, are there enough Republicans in the Senate who don't want Moore in that they will support a Democratic call for as many recounts as it takes to get Jones elected, the way the House did with Frank McCloskey in 1984?

Thank goodness I didn't go back and bet more. I think it is worth $195 to have at least some of my faith in humanity restored.

When I read that you bet on Moore, I was worried
