Btw, recent polls show Hillary beating Trump in Georgia, Arizona, and tied in Mississippi. MISSISSIPPI!

2. Our faux democracy on display

Once again pointing out how absolutely futile it is for me to vote in the general election.

4. I thought it was useless to look at GE projections this early in the year?

Or is that only for polls showing that Sanders does significantly better against all of the R candidates than Clinton?

12. National horse race polls are meaningless. State horse race polls have some value.

The map is an amalgamation of state predictions by Sabato which closer to state polls than a national one.. Given some recent state polls, Sabato should update his map.

6. Yes a blowout is likely

But it would be nice to make sure some swing states are safe. How about Clintons VP be from Ohio, Virginia, NC, or Florida?

11. Yes, HRC's numbers among blue-collar males are not good...

and I don't see young progressives getting out in the numbers they did for Obama. I think it's 50/50. Trump will have as much money as he wants, and the corporate money men that have underwritten HRC may just decide that they win regardless of who comes out on top in November. If they close their checkbook, and HRC's minions have turned off the millions of Bernie donors, she could be in real financial peril vs Trump.

Look, I hate Trump, but his peeps are far more enthusiastic than HRC's. Just watch one of her rallies... all the excitement and energy of a root canal. I don't want to see him elected, but I don't want to see HRC dragging the party back towards the DLC centrist nonsense that we've been moving away from for the past 16 years.

8. I wouldn't include VA or NC for Hillary, but otherwise I would agree.

 

She's incredibly lucky to have Trump to run against.
