In other words no, you not know any American conservatives and are just kibitzing out of ignorance.


Well no, I know 100's of Americans personally and I also have the added benefit of actually being smart enough to research the survey data of 1000's of Americans before blurting out nonsense (unlike someone I could mention /whistle/)

I can tell you that one of the dirty tricks the emails talked about was circulating the rumor that the Sanders campaign was in disarray... you know, like you're doing to the Dems here.

I am not circulating rumours. I am discussing facts. So are a lot of democrats discussing the same facts. Debbie Wasserman Schultz has just resigned her position. Try to distinguish between rumours and facts.

And you believe them, even though polls are notoriously unreliable. I guess Britain is still in the EU based on the polls.

When the results are that 60-70% of all conservatives are for Trump, then yep, I believe that Trump has the majority of support from conservatives, especially when its across poll after poll after poll.
It certainly beats going with the views of your family and mates

You mean 60 - 70% of all the self identified conservatives polled, don't you?

Yes you think they were pretending?


So we have:
Polls showing overwhelming support for Trump amongst conservatives.
You saying your mates say they don't.

I guess I'll go with the former. If your argument is that they were pretending to be conservative then you've reached a new level of desperation

Is David Duke a conservative?

Irrelevant and your level of desperation is just getting worse - which I thought was not possible given your previous comments.
Conservatives overwhelmingly support Trump, Liberals overwhelmingly support Clinton. That's just a truth you seem unable to accept, but your fantasy world is not reality.

By the way , new 4 way poll from CNN - Trump leads Clinton by 5%.

Three surprising facts about the protesters at the Republican National Convention


During the Republican National Convention, Cleveland officials put barricades up and prepared to handle mass arrests of protesters. News outlets suggested that protests might resemble those at the infamous 1968 Democratic National Convention in Chicago.

However, contrary to expectations, the crowds were small (apart from a large presence of reporters). And perhaps more surprisingly, the demonstrators who were there were not necessarily focused on the Republican Party.
...
As expected, many demonstrators (16 percent) came to support or oppose Donald Trump. But more (23 percent) said their primary concern was speaking out about racism or racial inequality.
...
Less than 5 percent of the participants said their goal was to change the Republican Party’s nomination or position on an issue. The majority said they were there to express solidarity, hoped to change public opinion on an issue, or felt obligated to speak out on an issue. This finding contradicts the conventional wisdom that people who demonstrate outside the convention would be targeting what goes on inside the convention.


Why are the protests at the Republican Convention so small?

It will be interesting to compare the protests at the DNC to the protests at the RNC.

I guess the organisers and inciters of violence (Soros, the DNC ...) were too busy organising their convention to try and ruin the GOPs.

Funny thing, larger and angrier demonstrations by Democrats at the DNC than there were at the RNC.

But the Democratic leadership says, 'All is well, nothing to see here.'

That is the difference - the media will spin as far as they can to make the DNC convention 'positive', the opposite of what the did for the RNC. Can you imagine the news cycle if Priebus had been forced out the day before the DNC after being caught trying to rig the election.
