Trump appears to be the only one who remembers who won the popular vote.

pls let her enter the race long enough for a random Jeff Epstein/Harvey Weinstein time bomb to go off, detonating Bill and her's careers for good in a final humiliating KO.

So if they investigate any Bill/Epstein connection will the Dems impeach Trump since he will benefit politically?

Maybe thats why HRC wants to run to protect Bill from any Epstein stuff.

The "popular vote" defense is so juvenile... people voted (and campaigned, and spent ad resources) knowing how the electoral college contest shakes out. In safe states, not everyone turned out given that the local red / blue outcome was certain, and campaigns spent relatively little time in those places anyway. We know nothing about how the popular vote would have looked had the race been aiming for it.

It's like awarding the winner of a football game retroactively based on total yardage. But of course, all the game decisions would have looked radically different if yards were the scoring mechanism.

The vote system is what it is, if you want to change it? do it before and not after u lost.

It just sounds like a sore loser to me.

However i bet hillary is going to run again.

I don't know who will end up being elected POTUS in 2020, but one thing I do know for sure is that it won't be Mrs. Clinton. I doubt her party would be willing to support another campaign after her loss.

Al Gore also won the popular vote.
I don't buy it as "beating", he clearly lost.
"Clearly" lost when U.S. Supreme Court blew their load early in Bush v. Gore, stopping the recount the Florida Supreme Court ordered.

Studies show that had a legitimate recount continued, Gore would have won by 60 to 200 votes.

Good luck with that, Hillary. People joked that she’d threaten to run at the 11th hour, undermining the work of other nominees, and I wanted to think they were kidding.

Clinton doesn’t know how to properly campaign for a POTUS election. She doesn’t understand how the Electoral College works, and that she needs to appeal to more than just the most populated states. Worse, she’s just going to once again assume that she wins instead of, you know, working for it.

If I’m a Democrat, I’m hoping and praying that she is just posturing. If she’s not, the party is certainly doomed to lose another election.

According to Politico, "Hillary Clinton is hosting a big-dollar fundraiser for the DNC at her D.C. mansion (just around the corner from VP Mike Pence’s house). The Oct. 16 event is billed as “Dinner and conversation at the home of Hillary Rodham Clinton.” Tickets are available at $15,000, $35,000 and $50,000 levels."

One of the things that makes her so damn unlikable is that she refuses to be in the same room as anyone who doesn’t either stump for her or pay her thousands of dollars. Meanwhile trump is out filling stadiums full of people and getting them riled up.

It’s boggles the mind she can’t figure out how she lost.

She’s an anchor around the neck of anyone foolish enough to pick her as a running mate.

Imagine losing the presidency to Trump not once but twice? How is she so dumb she won’t just go away?

I wonder if she will leak shit on Biden once he looks like he has clinched it, then swoop in at DNC request to take his place?

She ran in the same Ukrainian circles as him - I'm sure she has dirt on all the Democrats involved.

Also, she's an urbanite who only cares about city folks. That's why she lost the election.

Trump doesn't look like he cares about living or hanging out with small town people on a personal level either, but at least he campaigned and visited small towns and businesses, while Clinton focused all her energy (and budget) on metro areas.

Trump might be a loudmouth with zero etiquette, but at least you can see him trying to handle business and tariffs.

Clinton is a born and bred feminist (although amazingly when it comes to her cheating red nosed husband Bill, she had no balls to leave him or publicly blame him for being an ass..... some strong willed feminist she is). And feminists focus on living, breathing, and working in metro areas.

Anyone similar to the way Hilary acts and campaigns will always be a city-focused person. Great for city folks. But anyone from small towns and rural areas trying to fight the good fight of blue collar jobs are fucked.

She couldn't leave him. Having a family is a big plus for politicians. Gotta get those smiling family photo ops.

And in American politics that means fuck all. You know what every Liberal pundit had on their scorecards on election night? The electoral college map. She also was losing the popular vote until California came in at the very end. So if it makes your balls feel slightly bigger to say old Stovepipe Legs won the popular by one state when it doesn’t matter anyway, by all means....

How can she be a feminist when she destroyed the women who came out against her husband and after he stuffed his cigar in an intern’s vajayjay? She’s a selective feminist at best. Which is kind of like being a part time vegan.

I can't wait for 4 more years of Trump. I think he'll walk a second election. For example, all those people that were scared that LGBTQIAAP people were going to rounded up by roving death squads in the run up to 2016. How do they square that with the fact that it's been three years of Trump and nothing happened? The same scare tactics that didn't work last time, will work even less this time!

I dont go with predictions and polls and I prefer not to stake a claim on the future.
If only because I don't like the taste of crow.

However:
When it comes to leaderships and politics, I usually want the new face to get a second term.
My logic for this is that the first term is typically filled with "Don't blame me, I'm cleaning up the mess from the last guy." statements.

Getting rid of the electoral college would mean ONLY FOUR states get to decide every election.

Who thinks that sounds fair?

Oh right. Elizabeth Warren does.

If we got rid of the electoral college then what reason would a presidential candidate or sitting president have to push policies that help smaller states’ problems? They’d have no reason!!

Biden's drop in the polls is giving her the excuse she has been waiting for. She can pitch herself as the only moderate Dem with a chance of winning any states where socialism is frowned upon. I've been expecting her to run again since the last election, and I see no reason to question that opinion yet.

As an aside, kinda weird that Biden is dropping in polls and Trump's unfavorable ratings are going up. I imagine the responders could be looking at this news along the lines of "Biden is clearly conflicted at best, and dirty at worse, but Trump should not be asking for someone else to investigate." But for me personally, that does not make much sense, although the leaks of selective information from secret hearings with only one side asking questions might have something to do with it I guess.

I was sitting with a coworker once, and he was answering a goofy online poll about nothing important. Something like 'what is your favorite type of food'. He clicked into 'see results', said 'oh', clicked back, and voted. Something felt off, so i asked him, 'why did you check first?'.

He responded: "i wanted to make sure i had the right answer'.

Polls are a tool to shape public opinion, not measure public opinion. Even assuming a completely unbiased poll, with unbiased questions, unbiased pollsters, and unbiased respondent selection, simply publishing that poll can potentially sway public opinion.

It may not matter much when discussing what our favorite cuisine is, but once we enter the realm of politics I'd argue polls are suspect. Especially when pollsters who don't like their own results claim they were brigaded, etc.

Yeah, I give a lot of weight to the silent voter theory. We live in an age where Dems will tweet out campaign contributions to cause punishment for them. When trial comes after conviction, when people can be fired for speaking their mind off work if a far left layabout starts a twitter crusade. When people will have property vandalized for supporting Trump. Etc., etc.

How is she still so clueless? I don't know any Trump voters that would vote for her if she joined the fray, but I know plenty of non-Trump voters who would vote for him if she did happen to enter, myself included.
