Assuming that just under a third of electors vote in the advance polls, why would this election "be over"?

There's ittle time left for Trump to rebound from his self-made presidential election campaign disaster.

Colourful way to put it but the point is made.

We see from history that things don't happen at this late stage in a US election that change things. The reality is that the future is not the past and the fact they have not had a turnaround before at this stage does not mean they can't.

Trump has loaded the election in a way we have not seen before. There are any number of events that could shake things up.

There is a reason to be concerned that the those whoa re extreme prefer those of the other extreme to to justify them. A terrorist attack on the US might help Trump and this is probably open knowledge. A single person with deadly intention ill or not could have a great effect in the context of Trump.

As well revelations about Clinton could also have effect. The election ends once the polls close.

We can say things look hopeful that they will not elect Trump but that's as far as it goes. And things looked good for Mulcair.

Nothing will stop Clinton now. What's still up for grabs though is the Senate and the House.

Donald Trump: America's one-night stand

If anyone needs to apologize, it's America. To itself, sure. But to our Constitution, too, and to our history, to our veterans, to our minorities, to our heroes, to our Gold Star families, to our fellow citizens whom Trump maligned and mocked, to an electorate that deserves better, to everyday Americans whose grievances were hijacked, to the nations who pledged to defend us in the event of any aggression against us, and were told to buzz off, to longstanding allies and partners who were dumped on.To all of us, for falling for him for even one minute.

I wonder how many people realize the significance of Trump once again firing his campaign manager, once again, and appointing Steve Bannon of Breitbart News, the most detested man in the GOP establishment to run things. And yes that's correct the most detested man in the GOP heirarchy. Bannon is responsible for politically destroying Jeb Bush, the former GOP House Speaker John Boehner, and for attempting to, by failing to, destroying Paul Ryan's political career as well. Do people think for one second that Trump is going to be working with the GOP establishment from here on in? Not a fuckin' chance.

This Man Is the Most Dangerous Political Operative in America

Steve Bannon runs the new vast right-wing conspiracy—and he wants to take down both Hillary Clinton and Jeb Bush.

The Clinton Foundation has now become a campaign issue - a direct result of Steve Bannon's work. Trump is now calling for a Special Prosecutor!

But the Clintons are being politically deaf - it needs to be shut it down now How stupid or is it arrogant can the Clintons be?

He wants to take down Clinton and Bush? "The enemy of my enemy is my friend."

Sounds like a perfect fit for Trump's campaign, if I'm being honest.

With respect to Clinton being politically tone deaf: I don't know what's going on with the current polls but I think the pollsters and mainstream media - and those who believe them - are in for a rude surprise come November.

I think Trump will win - assuming Clinton doesn't drop out for whatever reason. If I was forced to bet I'd take odds as long as 60/40 Trump/Clinton. So by no means am I certain that he'll win. I think he's the favourite though.

I don't want Trump to win, but I also don't want Clinton to win, so it's a damned if you do damned if you don't situation.

He'll win because when the time is right he will be able to get the right message out. He hasn't advertised and he's hardly attacked Hillary at all, and he's only slightly behind in recent polls. Hillary has dozens of skeletons in her closet to exploit, far more than he does, and she has the baggage of being the establishment candidate. Once the independants and undecideds start paying attention in the final weeks - especially during the debates where Trump will benefit from low expectations - Trump will make huge gains. (As an aside, it's been said that Trump isn't good in one on one debates so he'll be in trouble against Clinton. In the GOP's larger debates he could attack one person then switch when he ran out of material. With Clinton, he won't run out of material.)

Hillary is an objectively terrible candidate. She is vulnerable from almost every angle - even her health is an issue now.

Trump is a polarizing candidate, but he's a polarizing candidate with a consistent, positive ("feel-good"), primary message, an enthusiastic base of supporters, who works incredibly hard and has shown he is able to learn and adapt. He's had no support from either party's establishment, no support from the media, no support from popular culture, and certainly no support from silicon valley. Everyone who's anyone has tried to take him out - and they've all failed so far to make much of a dent. He's been called every name in the book so many times the names have lost all meaning. He's the ultimate outsider which means he'll do overwhelmingly better with undecided and independant voters and should easily win the swing states decided by this bloc of voters.

Like Bernie, Trump pulls in thousands upon thousands of supporters at every rally he hosts. Maybe Hillary could do the same but she doesn't - maybe because of her health? He has more supporters than Hillary on social media (twitter/facebook). Right leaning news/opinion sources (Breitbart/Drudge) are growing in daily/monthly views while mainstream sources such as cnn and msnbc are declining. And I've seen reports that new voter registrations and registration changes in swing states are favouring Republicans as well, although I only read this for the first time today and haven't had time to verify if that's true (if it's even publicly available information).

I could go on, but basically it boils down to "Hillary is a terrible candidate and Trump is very good at destroying terrible candidates." It doesn't hurt that Trump has some pan-partisan appeal at the grassroots level - especially his anti-TPP stance and broadly non-interventionist foreign policy.

Trump Is Already Helping Putin Consolidate Control of Ukraine

The GOP candidate's pro-Russia comments have become must-see TV in both countries—and they’re demoralizing the Ukrainians.

Cody, I agree that Trump remains more of a threat than many give him credit for being.

I also think that conventions based on historical polling misread what people are thinking and the type of political environment we are in.

Almost any negative event could serve to help Trump as well -- bad economic or violence could put him up.

His camp may already be sitting on something to hurt Clinton with waiting for the right moment.

Clinton is a terrible candidate.

I don't think Sanders would have done a lot better to be honest -- the US is not ready for a self proclaimed socialist.

The Democratic and Republican parties both blew this and Trump is still positioned to benefit.

He definitely is vulnerable and could do very badly but you cannot count him out.

Many people are angry and he is the angry candidate. Negative messages like his are powerful and not to be under estimated.
