Poll: Clinton, Trump in statistical dead heat

http://thehill.com/blogs/ballot-box/presidential-races/301221-poll-clinton- trump-in-statistical-dead-heat

On another note, the bass boat at the lakehouse is safely on land now just in time for the fall drawdown. Lots of sprucing up to do in the spring though.

His new slogan must really be resonating with his base...

Goob,

How are those battleground states polling for Trump? How many of these are he ahead in? His path to victory?

So why isn't Hillary up by 50?

There is no way that any script-writer could have invented a villain as diabolical as Donald Trump for her to run against. The man is an a$$ bag of the highest caliber, there can be no doubt. This pairing is up there with Pee Wee Herman vs. Mike Tyson ... yet going into the 15th round, Pee Wee is standing, waiting for the bell!

Here is (for me) the most troubling part of all this: if you consider the number of folks who plan to vote for Gary Johnson and "loan" that number to either Hillary or Donald ... it becomes obvious that the MAJORITY OF AMERICANS DO NOT WANT EITHER OF THEM! Yet one of them will almost certainly be the new president!

Tray tables in the upright position ... seat belts fastened ... HEADS BETWEEN OUR LEGS! We're in for a HELLUVA ride for the next 4 years!

Not true. If the majority of the people didn't want either of the two candidates Johnson's poll numbers would be much better.

It is not as simple as that. One reason, maybe the biggest reason IMO, why Johnson (and Stein for that matter) has been polling so low is because the vast majority of people think he have no viable chance, which leaves many people feeling like they need to choose the lesser of two evils in order to keep the bigger evil out of office even though that means they are still voting for evil.

Break it down like this:

Let's say that 44% want Hillary;
Let's say that 41% (is it this close?) want Trump;
Let's give Gary Johnson 15% (fair - depending on which poll you subscribe to).

Give Hillary Gary's percentage - that means that 59% DON'T WANT Trump.
Give Gary's numbers to Trump and 56% DON'T WANT Hillary.

I'm not saying these percentages are accurate. I am saying that when you give Gary Johnson's numbers to either of the other two (which ain't gonna happen) - they cancel out the other.

By your logic, 85% of the people don't want Johnson. The fact is that he is polling at about 6%.

It's a good question. Why isn't Ms Clinton further ahead in the polls?

Because the country has some very stupid people who thin Trump is presidential material. Complete morons who can't give any reason to vote for Trump or explain why he would be good for the country.

That wasn't directed at any one particular individual.

Is is really that hard to understand? Because she's s sucky candidate and it's hard for the country to get excited about a specific candidate that most people don't like at all just because the other candidate sucks worse. #notrocketscience

I didn't think anything could top the "I'm a Dickhead" hat seen at a Dickey Betts show, but you've done it. [for those not in the know, Dick heads were/are fans of Dickey's band]. Amazingly, people would always smile seeing that, all kinds of things running thru people's minds.
