Personally, I think it is more racist to tell someone that the government needs to help you because you, as a(n) (insert race here) are incapable of helping yourself.



No. Just no.

ACTUAL racism is more racist.

It was very telling this week when multiple Republican candidates were unwilling to say that the Charleston church shooter's motivation was pure racism and hatred. They were afraid to upset a key portion of their base.

Other than gambling markets what criteria could we use to possibly know that anyone is either gaining or losing ground?



Various polls. There have been a few.

She is already losing ground to some GOP frontrunners. She will continue to do so, her trustworthy and likability numbers are horrible.



It's a well known and proven fact, known to
everybody who pays attention, that the more
you see of Hillary, the more her numbers go
down. It's why she lost in 08. She's not likable
or personable. She's a terrible speaker and is
especially bad at thinking on her feet. Her
husband is very good at all of it, that's what
people see in Hillary. They see Bill.

She is like when you work for a small company and like the owner, but his wife sticks her nose into everything while not having a clue what is going on. I never like Bill, he is not trustworthy and has extremely low morals. Kind of a liberal version of Don Draper. But like Draper, at least he is good at his job. Hillary is the kind of boss who you know is incompetent, hardly anybody likes working for. I mean, she is such a twit that she thinks businesses do not create jobs for crying out loud! Yet she has frozen the primary of her party so that nobody will move. Amazing.

You definitely will be earning a lot of money on all elections betting based on these polls that the gambling markets don't give much credit to

Unless, of course, these poll results really don't mean anyone has gained or lost ground

Don't matter much of what you say, as long as unions and minorities back you up you got a real chance.

They have been running the party for 23
years. They have so much influence and
power, everybody is terrified of them.
Nobody likes Hill, except to her face. She's
like the Mafia don that everybody despises
behind his back. You hate him, you don't
want him there, but you have no choice.

Do you think unions have that much power anymore?

Do you think all minorities will back one party or another or is it just "some" minorities? You paint a lot of people with a pretty broad brush, IMO.

You guys are setting yourselves up for another FOX News election night meltdown with all this anti-Hillary groupthink.

"What?! Everyone doesn't hate Hillary?"
"The polls weren't skewed?!"

nomination? Oh, wait...
