Clinton crashing and burning as vote nears

Last week I warned that the left was prematurely declaring victory for Hillary, and now the tables have turned as Trump gains in polls and email news surfaces.

I bet Hillary wishes the election were last week…at the rate her campaign is imploding, she may not make it.

The wheels are coming of the bus for Clinton as her leads narrows from 12 points to just 2..wow

Emails in Anthony Weiner Inquiry Jolt Hillary Clinton’s Campaign

In a letter to Congress, the F.B.I. director, James B. Comey, said the emails had surfaced in an unrelated case, which law enforcement officials said was an F.B.I. investigation into illicit text messages from Mr. Weiner to a 15-year-old girl in North Carolina. Mr. Weiner, a former Democratic congressman from New York, is married to Huma Abedin, the top aide.

What happens if she wins but is later indicted and doesn’t step down? The law is murky in this scenario.

5. If the investigation continues after the election and Clinton wins and is inaugurated before a decision is made. Could Clinton be indicted when she becomes President?

The law is unsettled when it comes to this situation, but most opinions tend to believe Clinton would luck out, due to the philosophy that Presidents — and only Presidents — are immune from prosecution while in office.

Hilary’s odds have narrowed for 85% to 81%, although this is still too high..I thin it’s more like 55-65% in her favor:

GOP insiders: Polls don’t capture secret Trump vote

“I’m not sure how big a factor it is, but there is definitely a ‘Bradley effect’ going on out there,” said a Virginia Republican, referring to the African-American mayor of Los Angeles who led in polls but lost unexpectedly in the 1982 California gubernatorial race. “I personally know many Republicans that won’t admit that they are voting for Trump. I don’t like admitting it myself. It won’t matter if Hillary is up more than 5 points, but we might be in for a surprise if Hillary’s lead is less than 5 points on Election Day.”

Why Scott Adams of ‘Dilbert’ fame risked his reputation by sparking controversy in the election

Adams clearly relishes offering these polemical blog essays and head-turning theories. One recent post wondered whether Twitter was “shadowbanning” him; another post took on the intersection of gender politics and geopolitics; and just a week ago, he wrote: “If Trump gets elected, and he does anything that looks even slightly Hitler-ish in office, I will join the resistance movement and help kill him.”

Poll: Trump Voters Found to Be More Knowledgeable on Policy Than Clinton Voters

In total, the rates at which voters gave the correct answers varied from a high of 43% for Trump voters to a low of 31% for Clinton voters:
43% for Trump voters.
37% for 35 to 64 year olds.
37% for males.
35% for undecided voters.
34% for females.
34% for 65+ year olds.
31% for Clinton voters.

From personal experience on both left-wing and right-wing communities, the latter are more informed of the issues and less susceptible to groupthink. There is much more conformity on ‘left’, whereas on the right’, if you read the comments there is always arguing and nitpicking over loose ends (about God, government, philosophy, history, etc.), which you don’t see as often in left-wing blogs and communities, which tend to focus on simpler things, not complicated stuff like philosophy. The ‘left’ has a tendency to reduce issues to a simple good-bad dichotomy, whereas the right (at least online) understands that these terms are ill-defined and subjective, and that something that seems ‘good’ often carries an opportunity cost or externality. The left says we need free stuff for all, but the ‘right’, who are better informed and incredulous, ask ‘Who is going to pay for it?’ The left appeals to ‘low information‘ voters more so than the right, although all major parties have a lot of uninformed voters. Far-left variants of liberalism, such as Marxism and democratic socialism, rely on the uneducated masses for support and have anti-intellectual bend to them. Although some leftist intellectuals support Marxism and socialism, in practice such ideologies are anti-intellectual.
