I wonder how much worse it can really get.
IF the FBI arrested her today or Monday, or even over the weekend, I bet it wouldn't really affect her that much.

On Fox she has neen above 270 for a few days. I take it all in stride as headline grabbing from both. The cynic could argue each is utilizing a 'scare' tactic to get out the vote for their 'side.'

Or a 'cover our butts' tactic in case Trump wins and we see how inaccurate their polls were.

But then how do you account for fox being above 270?

The media has been flogging the shit out of this to put eyeballs on TV's. The race was going to tighten if they had to photoshop HRC into a Nazi uniform to make it happen.

Having just checked the map its also worth noting she's still at 268 so winning any one of the battlegrounds (except the one vote district) would put her back over. So this is more needle nudge than titanic shift.

I'm just hoping to see Hillary win either FL or NC early Tuesday night so I can head off to bed early.

CNN has NH as a battleground state but the numbers say it isn't actually all that close. Add those 4 electoral votes in for Hillary and she is at 272.

The last few polls have been worrisome.

On the flip side, the past few polls out of Florida have shown a decent Clinton lead. If she wins Florida, it's ovvvvvvvvvvvvvver.

Keeping Hillary from getting to 270 is huge. Now if we can keep Hillary and trump from getting 270, then I will have my hope in civilization restored.

I have faith that there is a significant enough wing of the GOP that would like to break free of the grasp of the Tea-Party-dominated party at the moment. With getting to use the horrificness of Trump as the political fig leaf they need, whether it be Johnson or McMullin being the third one in, they'd have the chance they need. So the hope is that neither Trump nor Hillary gets the Oval Office and and the GOP gets rescued from the dismal hostage situation they've endured of recent.

A guy can dream, yeah?

They're making it look like Trump can win to motivate Democratic voters to get out and vote silly-billy. All in the plan son, all in the plan.

Was that the ginormous HRC ground engine that I just heard tearing through the US?

Oh, yes. Yes, it was.

No one is quoting the beloved 538?

Nate Silver is RSPs most beloved analyst.

He is calling it for H-dog with Nevada to spare. He's giving the odds at 65 35, waaaaay down from 90 10. He has, however, been backpedalling in his commentary. When she loses, he has lots of his own comments at his fingertips about how hard this election was to call.

He is our "favorite" because he uses science and is usually right. Now it's 65/35. You might want to cancel a couple of the kegs you ordered for the Trump victory party. Yea I'm not happy, but facts are facts. Do you think he made up the 90/10?

No, her handbag is where she keeps her gun that she uses to assassinate people.

I still haven't seen Huma since Friday. Anyone? Anyone? Buehler?

Why would you want to see her? If I remember correctly, you considered her unattractive?

Silly rabbit. Hilary has a super-secret assassination squad. By the way, what was your home address again?

Really? I always thought she was cute enough.

I wouldn't put two farthings on her life expectancy if Hillary loses though, that's for sure.
