Has Donald Trump lost the election now?Watch
This is why I think he's bound to flop (and flop HARD):
1) His leaked video tape
2) His poor debate performances.
3) His poor performance among minority voters.
4) Shy Clinton supporters- people don't want to say they're voting for someone 'establishment' like the Tories in the 2015 UK election.
5) He is losing heavily in Pennsylvania and struggling in Ohio. The swing states will determine who wins and Trump is not doing too well in them.
And not everyone wants to say they're voting for Trump, either.
Anyway, I hope he wins. I've got $50 riding on it.
here is something I am scared to admit in public I condemn trump because whenever I say anything against clinton or any excuse for trump I get labelled racist. However if I was in that voting booth right now and could vote (I can't I am not american) I would vote Trump.
there are many people that silently feel this way, they may be afraid to say it in public but they won't be afraid to vote it. That is why this one is so unpredictable. The odds on trump are far to generous I really should stake a wager at this point.
I personally think Clinton will win 49 to 42
What many in the mainstream fail to understand is that Trump's appeal has crossed all boundaries. Although the majority of his support during the primaries was from white, working-class Americans, his message has also appealed to a wider audience.
You're absolutely right in suggesting that the minority vote matters, but either way this will not be sufficient to ensure a Clinton win. Moreover, far too many underestimate just how disliked Hillary is, especially amongst the people we would view as her 'core' electorate.
They are both highly objectionable power-crazed people with dubious moral standards and track records. However the media tide seems to be with Clinton at the moment.
Thankfully whoever wins will probably be blocked by the other party winning in Congress so they won't actually be able to do anything in power..
As for shy HRC supporters, I'm afraid I'm not buying that.
There may be some but I get the impression that the numbers would be swamped by those who are avoiding admitting in public that they support trump. . He is being slaughtered on TV and online and his supporters are spat on and attacked. There is even an attempt to organise a Boycott of Jimmy Felons show because he ruffled Trumps hair when he was a guest recently. How dare he treat him the same as he would Clinton? Lets see if we can cost him his career...that'll teach him.
It reminds me of when John Major had a surprise win over Kinnock.
Hundreds of Tories were unwilling to say they were supporting Major but when they got into the polling booth they told the truth.
Clintons best bet is another tape coming out. There are rumours of harsher stuff from the out takes of the Apprentice USA and if it exists and gets into the hands of any of the main stream media there is a very good chance of it being used against him.
