    What did everyone think of it? Starting to appear people will not be moving to Cape Breton Nova Scotia, Canada after all. There had been serious inquiries with people looking to move there if Trump won the election. I know it isn't over till it is over, but not looking good for the trumpster right now.

    My favourite moment was when Trump ~ whose entire schtick is [let's face it] being er... 'refreshingly nasty and negative, shall we say, or so it seems ~ and who hasn't paid any tax for 20+ years ~ spat out a pouty "such a nasty woman" when he was teased as follows... "My social security payroll contribution will go up, as will Donald's, assuming he can't figure out how to get out of it." - which was exquisitely on-the-nose and actually kind of funny as political quips go.

    Somehow, for me, that little miffed retort by the extraordinarily glass-chinned Mr Trump sums him up. It also sums up the way he will be remembered for making pretty much no effort at all to move beyond his loyal base (which is kind of lacking in women, and which will not be enough to get him elected) and now seems to be blaming everybody else - except himself - for the resulting electoral mathematical reality.

    I think he's created some alarm by the suggestion that he may choose not to abide by the umpire's decision.

    It's been in the bag for the Dems for weeks and would have been much earlier if they hadn't dropped Saunders who, it seemed to me at least, was the last politician in America with some level of integrity.

    In some ways I wonder if America (and the world) will be worse off without Trump; he would have got little done as the houses would have blocked him at every turn. Whereas Clinton is a much better political animal and possibly more harmful because of it.

    Personally I'd have moved to Canada no matter what.

    I don't think you understand the sheer stupidity of America. That Trump received even a single vote in the primaries is an epic disgrace. That Trump would actually be nominee of a major party is irrefutable proof that we can't depend on U.S. citizens to be intelligent. Until those ballots are fully counted, I'm not the least bit confident of the outcome.

    Trump may be despised, but so is Hillary. Though Hillary isn't hated as much as Trump, she doesn't have fanatical supporters like Trump. Trump has voters who actually love him, unlike Hillary; her voters aren't voting for her, they're voting against Trump. So all things considered, it will, unfortunately, be a tight race.

    I haven't seen any of the debates. Ever since Trump won the GOP nomination, there's been no need to.

    There will be further trouble if the results of the election are close, say 47% to 53% in Hillary's favor. The only way to get this world class megalomaniac narcissistic asssshole off the stage is if he is defeated by landslide. Only then will he retreat sulking to his tower of ignorance.

    I disagree, only if he wins will he be content.

    Even a landslide for Hillary will result in a lot of judical action....

    I'm voting for Hillary, but not because I despise her opponent.

    I like Hillary.

    Trump will win. 100%.

    Other than Andy people don't like her so much, yes some people hate trump but a lot love him as well. Many more than who love Clinton.

    She doesn't have any charisma, will be brexit all over again. More idiots will vote and trump will win. Put your house on it.

    So you are saying that you are not moving ?

    Because neither one of them will get elected ? 😀

    I disagree. Respectfully of course.

    The Trump vote is an "anybody but Hilary" vote.

    You can replace Trump with an organ grinder monkey and get the 35% poll.

    Trump wanted a drug test given before the debate
    compare

    Trump, fidgeting, drinking a lot of water, constant sniffing not able to articulate any position coherently

    Hillary, calm, smiling and looking like the adult

    yeah Trump do you really want the drug test?
