Lol.. this thread is comical


Clinton got more votes in the Primary than Trump and she had tougher adversaries.



Trump destroyed 16 candidates with establishment backing, while Clinton couldn't seal the deal against 1 socialist outsider until the convention. Then it turns out that the DNC colluded against Sanders in favor of Clinton.

Speaks volumes.

Here's what I want to know...do the pollsters just randomly call people, find out their party leanings, get the answers to the poll questions, and THEN whittle the results down to only include a specific percentage of party leaners?

If they call and get, say, 50% republicans and 50% democrats, do they throw out some responses and how do they decide what responses to throw out? Do they throw out Democrats that plan to vote Trump...or vice versa?

Or do they just post the results of all the people they call and the percentages of party leaners are just the percentages they happened to poll?





The majority just take the respondents and do not weight the results.
Some do - for instance the LA Times poll uses a weighting according to the 2012 party splits as well as demographics.
There is an obvious problem with summer polling. More democrats are available to do the survey.

It seems like the basis of the OP is online/social media polls. Unfortunately (depending on who you support) those are often wrong. Bernie Sanders absolutely crushed Hillary in pretty much every social media poll I ever saw, and I remember Ron Paul winning almost every online/social media GOP Primary poll I saw in 2012.

Its actually a website where anyone can make a personal poll.

Yep, the online polls are complete nonsense. Also any claimed correlation between social media activity and voting intent is nonsense.

They still aren't controlling the polls and those articles don't say that.
And I'm still waiting for you to tell me where you get your news that you can look down your nose at my sources. I see now.

Blogs. Basically any opinion aligned with your own so you don't have to adjust your thinking.

Actually, you made my point. Your interpretation of Christianity might agree with everything you just posted. And your interpretation might say (as you put it) that "Only God is allowed to directly physically punish people". But clearly the vast majority of Christians globally don't believe this. Otherwise there'd be no criminal justice system at all, much less individuals taking things into their own hands.

Some Christians (like the Ethiopian Orthodox Church) fast from specific foods frequently. But others, like most that I've seen in the American South, don't require fasting at all. So which one is "Christian law"? Some ban tattoos and eating pork (which are both forbidden in Leviticus), while others don't. Which one is "Christian law"? Eastern sects like the Russian Orthodox Church don't even follow the same calendar as Western sects, so they celebrate holy days like Christmas at different times. Which one is the correct "Christian law"?

That's exactly how Islam is in practice, which is why it's hard to say whether I agree or disagree with such a vague question as "Do you support Sharia, hurr hurr?".

Bush/Cheney ripped the heart out of America and stomped it into the ground. If Trump wins, it will be stilled/flatlined.

The guy's a total idiot, who doesn't even read, and who has no interest in learning or growing. He articulates at about a grade four level (seriously).

Anyone who still supports him ought to give their head a shake.

And this is one of the major reasons I cannot take the left seriously. This is coming from a former socialist/democrat voter. Don't believe what the MSM tells you, do your own research.


I trust my evaluative skills, thank you very much. Trump would be an absolute disaster. I'm most concerned not just about foreign and domestic policy and economic issues, but about the heart and soul of America.

BS. Muslims played a huge part in the Civil Rights Movement. Not to mention the first country to recognize America's Independence was Muslim country of Morocco. If you don't know that or the implications of it, I'm guessing you also don't know about the 1797 "Treaty of Tripoli" and its ramifications. And since between 15-30% of African American slaves were Muslims, it's fair to say we literally helped build this country from the very beginning.

Actually, screw it. Just because you never learned about the contributions of other demographics, that doesn't mean they never happened. It just shows that you've only been exposed to limited parts of American history.

What does this have to do with social media polls and what they say about Trump's chances?

Have you ever read the Qur'an? I'm asking because I always hear people like you talk about what Islam "is" and what Islam supposedly "teaches". Usually, they try to act like experts on Islamic theory, yet can't even answer basic questions like "what are the tenets of Islam?", "who are our Prophets?", etc. In fact, most can't even answer what "Jihad" actually is, much less the requirements of it.

I flat out said that there are numerous types of Sharia. You and others don't seem to get that. You can't tell me that Islam requires A, B, and C, then ignore all of the secular Muslim nations out there that literally contradict your point. The "Sharia" of Saudi Arabia is different from the "Sharia" of Somaliland, which is different from the "Sharia" of Northern Nigeria, which is different from the "Sharia" of Muslim communities in Chicago. One of the points of the Hajj is for Muslims from around the world to come together and see for ourselves the vastly different variations of our faith.

For example, there are no hair length requirements in the Qur'an. But some communities have distinct positions on what is acceptable for a man's hair. Which one is Sharia? And the Qur'an doesn't prescribe stoning to death for adultery, but some communities do. Which one is Sharia? Burkas aren't required in the Qur'an, but some communities require them. Which one is Sharia? The Qur'an bluntly says that anyone who intentionally kills a believer is going to Hell (Surah 4:93), yet some sects allow the killing of other believers. Which one is Sharia? Gender segregation isn't required in the Qur'an, but some communities require it. Which one is Sharia? Do you get my point?

I used to enter these conversations assuming people at least knew the basics, but clearly that was an error. I don't think I'll answer any more on this subject in this thread, because it's way off topic. But I'll happily but only briefly continue this conversation in an appropriate thread if you start it.

Geez this thread has gone off topic since I last checked in.
Why do some people always try to change the subject to other totally irrelevant things when people say something positive about Trump?

It's much easier to win in a big field. Trump keeps marching out this fact like it means something.
If there were 1000 voters and 16 competitors. To win in that field you only need to get 63 votes.
The same voters with only two competitors require 501 votes to win.
You need about eight times more votes.

I think that the undying loyalty given Mr. Trump is even more absurd and ridiculous than Trump himself.

Other than his image and branding, why do people stick to him when it's quite obvious that he'd make George W. Bush the epitome of reason and sanity by comparison?

That's when (during the Bush/Cheney years) the dumbing down process really kicked into high gear, but now, it's become a dumbing UP process with Donald Trump at the apex of it all!

You are a strange bunch.

Take a closer look at the Democratic Party Platform. It's a good plan. Hillary Clinton has her faults, but there's another person there underneath the caricature, who really does care and wants to get the proposed stuff done to, God willing, help generate a type of American renaissance of sorts, like a new dawn and a new morning in America, with people lifting each other up and actively participating in the American dream.

The Trump supporters are blinded I think, by a whole array of bias and prejudice and ill-conceived, and ill-tempered, opinions and impressions that are somehow projected through the person of Donald Trump who's more than happy to lap it all up.

He's a con man folks, a carny, and he's so ignorant that, not only doesn't he not know anything about anything, but he doesn't even know that he doesn't know, and doesn't care to really learn and grow.

Just imagine his Presidency as a type of continuation of his campaign for President with he himself attempting to embody what's "great" about America.. It's absurd.

American power is manifold and complex. Part of it comes from the North American Landmass itself, but a big part of it arises from the ideals it professes to hold dear and uphold.

Trump is directly attacking many of those principals and concepts, on a scale that's well, even more dangerous and threatening than ISIS, given what it could undermine within the global framework amid profound shifts in technological advance and yes, globalization or the emergence of a multilateral, collaborative, global, mutuality of an enlightened mutual self interest aka a global village with American values and interests in the lead.

For God's sake people, don't throw the whole thing into the can! That's nuts.
