Washington DC and The Holy Land>Electoral Map Is a Reality Check to Trump’s Bid
Lex Luthor 05:16 PM 04-02-2016
Trump trails Hillary in virtually every state. If he is the Republican nominee, it will be an electoral college defeat of historic proportions.

Originally Posted by :
Donald J. Trump’s presidential candidacy has stunned the Republican Party. But if he survives a late revolt by his rivals and other leaders to become the party’s standard-bearer in the general election, the electoral map now coming into view is positively forbidding.

In recent head-to-head polls with one Democrat whom Mr. Trump may face in the fall, Hillary Clinton, he trails in every key state, including Florida and Ohio, despite her soaring unpopularity ratings with swing voters.

In Democratic-leaning states across the Rust Belt, which Mr. Trump has vowed to return to the Republican column for the first time in nearly 30 years, his deficit is even worse: Mrs. Clinton leads him by double digits in Wisconsin, Michigan and Pennsylvania.

Mr. Trump is so negatively viewed, polls suggest, that he could turn otherwise safe Republican states, usually political afterthoughts because of their strong conservative tilt, into tight contests. In Utah, his deep unpopularity with Mormon voters suggests that a state that has gone Republican every election for a half-century could wind up in play. Republicans there pointed to a much-discussed Deseret News poll last month, showing Mrs. Clinton with a narrow lead over Mr. Trump, to argue that the state would be difficult for him.

Horse-race polls this early are poor predictors of election results, and candidates have turned around public opinion before. And the country’s politics have become so sharply polarized that no major-party contender is likely to come near the 49-state defeats suffered by Democrats in 1972 and 1984.

But without an extraordinary reversal — or the total collapse of whoever becomes his general-election opponent — Mr. Trump could be hard-pressed to win more than 200 electoral votes.

Mr. Trump has become unacceptable, perhaps irreversibly so, to broad swaths of Americans, including large majorities of women, nonwhites, Hispanics, voters under 30 and those with college degrees — the voters who powered President Obama’s two victories and represent the country’s demographic future. All view him unfavorably by a 2-to-1 margin, according to a recent New York Times/CBS News poll.

In some states, Mr. Trump has surprised establishment-aligned Republicans with his breadth of support beyond the less-educated men who form his base. Even so, his support in the nominating process, in which some 30 million people may ultimately vote, would be swamped in a general election, when turnout is likely to be four times that.

“We’re talking about somebody who has the passionate devotion of a minority and alternately scares, appalls, angers — or all of the above — a majority of the country,” said Henry Olsen, a conservative analyst. “This isn’t anything but a historic election defeat just waiting to happen.”

(It's a fairly long article, so I put the rest in spoiler tags.)

There are several questions really:

Why was Stevens in Benghazi instead of Tripoli, where the embassy is?
Why did the Administration publicly blame a youtube video almost no one saw for the attack initially?
If the terrorists wanted to kill Stevens why did they attack Benghazi consulate and not the embassy in Tripoli?
Was Stevens the actual target of the attack, if not what were the terrorists attacking?

Let's roll back the clock to a time when a deceitful, power-greedy felon like Hillary Clinton got her just desserts and was indicted for doing things that are against the law and when our electorate and press was educated enough and had enough common sense and character to acknowledge a horrible human being when they saw one.

I've seen behind the curtain. It's butt ugly.

The Benghazi lies, if they even occurred, were nothing compared to the "usual" lies told to us.

You like to live in this perfect world of your beliefs. I use to live there too. But, at some point you need to grow up and see the world as it is. Doesn't mean we give up trying to make it the place we want it to be, we just need to deal with the reality and not live in some far off fantasy world we wished it to be.

The government lies? No shit. I am a libertarian. We don't trust anybody who claims the monopoly on violence.

Those that compromise their principles for utilitarian purposes have basically blinded themselves. That is how your ugliness behind the curtain came to be. Every compromise nibbles away at the ethical fabric until there is too little left.

Distrust of government is at an all time high as it should be.

Nixon era, we were actually lied into the Vietnam war by our military and political leaders, Roosevelt putting Americans into camps etc. etc.

The lies in this era are not worse than recent history.

It will be more clear to you when the families of those that died tell their story in the general election campaign ads.

There's a reason the majority of the country views her as untrustworthy. This is just one example. Her incompetence helped lead those people to their deaths, which in itself is bad enough. But her lying to the families should be an unforgivable political offense.

For the democrats I know it is and it's good to see some moral people still exist in the party.

You literally have to shut your fucking brain down and believe the forked-tongue nonsense that spews from his mouth, as his dick-nose draws air to perpetuate it.

Laughable.
