It ain’t over, folks. In fact, it ain’t even started.
Presidential races tighten up toward Election Day. The same people who brought you the inevitable President Jeb Bush are now bringing you the certainty of a Clinton coronation. But the election race begins the day after Labor Day, when Americans (at least the undecided ones) get down to the serious task of choosing who they’ll support for president.
Still — the polls, the polls! The mainstream media says the polls show this race is all over — everywhere. Shut ‘er down, no point in even holding the vote. You’d think America was North Korea, where the elections find the front-runner taking in 99.9879 percent of the vote.
But, you want polls? Let’s look at actual polls. The big, scary polls showing Clinton ahead by 10 or 12 points tend to get the most attention. But as of Friday, Clinton was ahead of Trump by only 6 points in the RealClearPolitics average of recent polls. Some of the latest polls put the two neck and neck. And it’s still August.
Still, Clinton isn’t running against Trump. She’s running against Trump, Libertarian Party candidate Gary Johnson, and Green Party candidate Jill Stein, who will each be on the ballot in all or nearly all of the states. When you factor in those two (hey, wait, what about “surging” Desperation Party candidate Ewan McGonigle?—M), neither of whom have a chance of winning, Clinton is ahead of Trump by only 4.5 points.
Yes, all this drama for a 4.5-point lead in August.
Of course, there’s still cause for concern, given that’s still probably within the margin of Democrat Socialist fraud. But there’s plenty more bracing cold water thrown in the face of unreasoning panic here, of which this one is maybe my favorite:
People also seem to forget that the only debates that have occurred have been in TV studios between Trump and Clinton surrogates, or between Trump surrogates and journalists. One of the keys to Trump’s victory in the primaries was his strong performance in the debates, where he relegated Jeb Bush from a giant to a lilliputian who, each debate — as Trump pointed out — was positioned further and further to the edge of the stage. Until, of course, he was off it entirely.
Yep. As I said, there’s plenty more, and you should definitely read it…and buck up. It all becomes clear when you recognize the “Trump can’t win” crowd’s stratagem for what it is: a desperate voter-suppression manipulation perpetrated in full-throated unison by both wings of the ruling-elite Uniparty.
