I guess it's just because this is a popular thread, or will soon turn out to be one.
The oddest thing to me is why people flock to these political circus thread so quickly and fanatically. There's some serious mind control playing out right in the midst of a supposed conspiracy website.

We are at that point in the cycle where the right demands to ignore the polls. and in 3 months, the right will then be scratchign their heads as to how the polls were actually right.
I feel bad for the bubble. both sides are in a bubble, but the right's bubble is significantly smaller..especially with Trump.
The tweens will overwhelmingly go with chillary verses someone they believe wants to shoot mexicans and muslims on sight. this is a marketing issue. the left has done an amazing job to make Trump look like a rabid dog..and tbh, his own words are the biggest killers. You dont have to like this, but that doesn't mean it will go away.
It has reached the point where in the past six presidential elections, four have gone to the Democratic nominee, at an average yield of 327 electoral votes to 211 for the Republican. During the preceding two decades, from 1968 to 1988, Republicans won five out of six elections, averaging 417 electoral votes to Democrats’ 113.1
Public perception of the Party is at record lows. Young voters are increasingly rolling their eyes at what the Party represents, and many minorities wrongly think that Republicans do not like them or want them in the country. When someone rolls their eyes at us, they are not likely to open their ears to us.

The partisan divide in this country is almost as manufactured as Hilary's support.
I live in Texas, so again you are partly correct. My parents were Sanders supporters, they are going Trump now. Most of my extended family have been very long time democrats. Not this time. People aren't as stupid as they are made out to be. Everybody knows that this election is do or die.
If the ballot fails, the bullets will follow. Nobody wants that. But fewer and fewer are willing to be sheep now.

Both are "wheeler-dealers", which is a good thing.
The difference is Trump mostly had to play within the rules and laws because of who he is, a private-public person.
Hillary did not have to play within the rules because of who she is, the First-Scammer in Chief.

But one tough question:
What is 88% of the population going to do when Hillary "wins"?
