    Okay guys, put yourself out there and let's start predicting what the outcome will be in 8 weeks. Right now it seems almost impossibly close to call, and we all know that one disastrous Debate performance (by either candidate) could change everything on a dime. Now, anyone who has been here for any length of time knows that my track record for predicting elections is, well, let's just say t's been abysmal. Regardless, here we go. Based on what we know as of today...

    I predict a Trump win 48/42

    P.S. You're allowed to change your prediction as we go along based on current events that unfold.

    I predict that Hillary will pass out and be assigned to the Mental ward before it's over.
    She's been quoted as being exhausted. Poor thing!! How can we help her to win? Speak for her???

    Ok, I'll bite... Even though I think there are a lot of closet Trump voters who are staying silent and will show up at the polls, I still think Hillary will take this one. 48 to 40. Time will tell...

    9/19 - Hillary has a slight lead, but Trump has faster momentum. Too close to call.

    Hillary is loyal to Anti-Gay Muslims and Wall St. bankers....not you. Speaking of Muslims and Democrats.....did liberal bias CNN or MSNBC ask that "gold star father" Muslim who spoke at the Democrat convention....what he thinks of gays? Because his writings support laws that call for all gay people to be executed.

    I'm still smarting because I thought Marco would be a shoo-in as a nod the Hispanic vote before the Primaries started. Trump, and particularly Christie, ended that scenario real fast. I'll take a stab at it and go with a squeaker to Trump.

    He'll hold his own at the Debate (although the Clinton News Network and NYT will loudly blare that Hillary "won" hands-down even if she faints). If he does blow the debate his fans won't care but if she trips up more people will migrate over to him.

    About four months ago I had a dream that Hilary won and became president. It kinda saddened me but that's who I think will win. I know of women who are voting for her just because they share the same genitalia. icon_rolleyes.gif Watch in horror as third wave feminism takes a giant leap forward making things uglier between men and women more than ever.

    If Trump chose a more progressive running mate for vice president than some backwards bible thumping creationist I think he would have had a better chance. In either case, whoever wins it will be a total circus for the next four to eight years. God help us all.

    The next VP will be more powerful than even Cheney was.

    Tim Kaine reflects the majority of Americans who are tolerant to LGBT Rights.

    Mike Pence is an AntiGay evangelical throwback which we need to reject for good!

    If the Donald performs very well in the debates and becomes more Presidential, he could easily win the November election. I would love to see the blue democratic wall states of Illinois, New York, and Pennsylvania go republican red in November but that is going to be a massive uphill task. As for now, it is too close to call.

    I wish people didn't treat this like it were a football game where you root for a "side". With that mentality, half of the country loses or feels like it loses. That kind of goes against the spirit of "out of many, one." More importantly, many Americans are split (like me) and don't feel that either party fully captures our feelings, yet we still expect problems to be SOLVED.

    It would be great if we, the people, actually demanded that with a two party system we get TWICE the solutions to the problems we as citizens voted them to solve.

    I'm just deeply worried that one of them could win.

    Trump seems very likely, but he doesn't seem like he's running for the office.. more so.. to justify a talk show afterwards. He rather reminds me of the fake Burger King "King" - mask, puppet or effigy.. staring at that for the next eight years gives me nightmares.

    Hillary I'm not sure why she is running, so many motivations seem hidden.. the lack of information is scary, but she does seem to be running for office.

    Neither seem motivated by the ideals of the position, or in the interests of serving their country.

    With Trump, I think it is just ego and wanting to get rid of taxes for his family.

    With Hillary, it is also ego, but the other reasons seem to also be hidden. I get the feeling that her plan is to show that she works well with Republicans (bipartisan support) by approving bills that hurt those most vulnerable in society and giving to the wealthy. The same kind of crap that Bill Clinton did. Not to mention more military activity.

    I think that both Trump and Hillary will result in more environmental destruction at a time when we should be focusing on clean energy and decreasing dirty energy. I don't think that either of them really care about the American people.

    The thought of having to listen to either Trump or Hillary the next 4 years....ugh!!!


    I'm really unwilling to vote for either of them. But I will say the way Trump is buddying up to every bigot he can I find is more than just unsettling. Let's not forget what a disaster of a Governor Pence was in Indiana....his anti-gay statements, etc. ( https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mike_Pence ). Not to mention the white supremacy crap constantly coming out of his campaign: Nazi Who Originated Donald Trump Jr.’s Skittles Analogy Was Hanged at Nuremberg. That is some scary shit.

    Clinton's hawkish stance will most likely lead to more innocent deaths around the World. I just can't vote for that. We are supposed to not care because they are not Americans or because their skin is brown or because they have a different religion.

    13599929_10157044131165177_8503526077887

    Neither of them are willing to fight climate change to the degree necessary, which will result in not only deaths to many humans, but is resulting in deaths to a multitude of animal and plant species around the World. The environmental balance will be no more. It angers me that we as a human race are unwilling to do more. Man created this imbalance...it should be man that tries to fix it. Take responsibility for our fucking actions.
