    Very interesting to see what has happened with TX. After that huge surge in early voting the first week, it ended yesterday DOWN from 2012! And registration numbers have increased. The final EV total is just under 4.5 mil versus 2012 EV total of just under 5.2mil. So despite the huge push for early voting, the final is around 700,000 fewer early votes. I’m wondering if the lack of enthusiasm here is coming from Republicans in this Cruz state. If so, may end up with a good result for the Dems on Tuesday. Very strange.

      Blame the voter suppression laws…blame that despite the courts calling Texas on it voter suppression laws Texas has been defiant on keeping the laws in place…and blame just the sheer confusion all of this creates with voters….

      I read somewhere – sorry can’t find the link, texas & arizona had a massive drop in polling places for early voting since 2012 – making folks queue is a sure way to suppress the vote. Thus said, sad that the numbers are down

    Sure hope you’ve been having a ‘Happy, Happy Birthday’! ❤ ❤

      And how he turned that economic turmoil around – when I hear republicans saying how bad things are – they must be all in their dotage with bad memories – and the media says there is “disagreement” without adding the truth.

      Thanks JER – great memories

    So Sanders don’t believe that most of Trump supporters are sexists and racists. Well I have to disagree with Bernie Sanders 100%. Not all of them are racists and sexists, but most of them are and so is Trump.

      bardgal, once again we will be saying: You read it first here on TOD. I am so impressed by how prescient and knowledgeable the people here are. Numerous times someone has made a comment, like this one that no one else has proffered, and soon the statement is shown to be fact in the general press and knowledge. Others just shut their minds. People here dig, research, think, analyze and see far ahead.

    Good afternoon TOD family. Hope everyone is preparing for the upcoming resounding victory of good over evil on Tuesday. I cannot vote in your election but I can pray. I am already giving thanks for President Hillary Clinton and a Democratic control senate and house of rep.

    Also sending warm Caribbean greetings for Amk to have a great birthday.

      Hillary will not take the bait to give her ratings. This one is an example of unbridled ambition. I still think that she and the carnival barker made some kind of deal when she had the private meeting with him on his turf. She also likes that she became the story, not that she was making some mark for truth, etc. The book came out and she was out and about, dressed to kill on red carpets and talk shows.

      I hope Pres Clinton NEVER appears on Fox – not before after or during her administration – regardless of who she may be talking to. All the media have lied incessantly about Benghazi, emails and the Clinton family – they deserve to be ignored other than for official statements.

      He’s going to Ann Arbor, not Detroit. And I don’t think they’re especially worried – just want to build a firewall there. I think at this point, it’s more about increasing presidential margins (HRC), and solidifying downballot wins (Congress & state/local races).

        November 5, 2016 at 7:21 pm

        Agree about the down ballot hf – PBO sure understands the need for dems in congress

        And just to mention – what a surrogate to have campaigning for you – the GOP candidate is mussing up the face paint with tears.

    A grand overview:

  31. 71 FoxfireTX
    November 5, 2016 at 5:42 pm

    So supposedly Paul Ryan has an op ed up on CNN asking voters to vote for DT. These Republicans are despicable. They all know he is totally unfit to fill the role and simply do not care. As long as they can get their tax cuts through and cut social programs, if he destroys the economy and the country in the meantime, well tough luck. Every one of these people need to be gone.

    • 72 99ts
      November 5, 2016 at 7:26 pm

      I think it relates to what Tally said above – they think DT will be impeached or resign and they will have their RWNJ women hating Vice President take over.

    This is the hallmark of a failing campaign. If HRC had canceled a rally right after an important Dem figure agreed to campaign there, it would dominate the next 48 hrs of media discourse.

      He is the most revolting egotist to appear in US politics. The people that vote for him are worse. He’s not lying when he says he will not pay government bills. Knows no other way to operate. Anyone who works for the US government & votes for this man are voting for massive pay cuts for themselves and their colleagues.

    If/when HRC wins (I only count my eggs when they are all in the basket), I may go out and buy a middle-aged lady’s pantsuit in her honor. My personal style is more Calvin Klein, Eileen Fisher, and Talbot’s, but if Bey and her ladies can go there to make a statement, I may be able to do as well.
