I dont want to hear about how bad Trumps approval rating is

For the next 4 years, if Gillespie wins VA (a state that Clinton won by 6 points and where Trump’s approval is currently at 35%). Because there would be no correlation between his approval and people who actually vote.

....that just because people hate one person does not automatically mean they are going to like someone else.

At least I hope it's going to sink in because that seems to be the entirety of our strategy and thus far it's not really working. Let's hope today proves to be different.

And we have had some big wins politically considering how outnumbered we are. Many of those wins have been a direct result of how toxic Trump is. A thought you are telling people not to talk about if Northam loses.

Here is the easy part. If Northam wins, will you spend the following years spreading how unpopular Trump is?

As I said, a preemptive pessimistic strike. I’ll add that it makes little sense with respect to being connected to anything you conflate it with.

One of the ones on here last year that always downplayed someone’s concern with a smart ass retort like “your concern is noted”. Only to have Clinton lose.

Working to make sure no one talks about how unpopular Trump is.

You left a question standing in your attempt to deflect and get Clinton’s name in there. That deflection makes it clear you want your rule adhered to reguardless of the results tonight. It makes more sense that way. Not sure why you included the part about today’s vote.

Clinton?

Gillespie's going down. Start writing obituaries for the GOP.

Talking about Trumps low numbers.

Just kidding. I can’t make sense of this preemptive strike.

I'm reading nothing but good things about our turnout. Let's hope it's correct.
