I doubt it, but hopefully the insults will stop and we can get back to the topic.

I saw where one of Trump's new campaign managers Kellyanne Conway  when asked about Trump's real chances, she acknowledge Clinton has 242 electoral votes locked up and it's going to be an uphill battle.  There is no Vegas line because betting on elections is illegal, but currently Ladbrokes in England has Clinton at 1:4, Trump at 3:1, and Trump being replaced as the Republican candidate is 7:1.

For those wondering where the 242 votes came from, it's from the solid 2012 states voting Democrat. If the that number stays firm, Trump must win Florida and almost all the other toss-up states. The polls in two of the toss-up states, PA and Colorado show Clinton ahead by 9 and 12 respectively. And those 29 electoral votes put Clinton at 271.

The emails and the insults to POWs, Gold Star Families, American born judges, etc. are well known and most voters already made up their minds. So the question is are Clinton's odds as the favorite worth the bet and are Trump's 3:1 as the underdog much lower than they should be?

      Oh goody, more lame childish insults.

      "And you will be blocked again."

      Is that like the last time you had me blocked, but still commented about my posts?

      "Life is just way to short for you and your BS."

      The real BS is you pretending he was your dear close friend instead of admitting he was the same message board acquaintance all the other LP members knew. Stick to the real lottery topics where your opinions will be proved right or wrong by the results. I'll bet you really believe all this nonsense about Clinton you and your new dear close friends are saying will sway the election results.

      Nonsense about Hillary Clinton?  LOL!  You kidding?  What nonsense are you referring to?  Lying to the American people and the relatives of four dead Americans about Benghazi?  It was caused by a youtube video and we'll get the people responsible for this.  (It was a coordinated terrorist attack on the anniversary of 911, was anyone brought to justice yet)?  Or about lying to Congress, the FBI and the American people about those emails?  How about those 33,000 emails deleted after she got a subpoena to produce all the emails?  That was obstruction of justice, a criminal offense.  Or for the best one...Selling favors as SOS through the Clinton Foundation?  How about that Russian uranium deal?  I'm sure the list is much more extensive.  Anyone who votes for that lying scum needs their head examined.

          On a "Higher Note", I'm going to play Devil's Advocate to all of the Trump/Clinton bashing ....

          People can Change ....

          If Clinton is elected President ...  after all of her wrongdoing .... perhaps she will make a VOW to herself and to the American People, to be a better person than she has been thus far, to be a better politician than she has been thus far, to be a better President than what the American people currently expect, and uphold that VOW. At least Clinton does have experience in office, and she knows what to expect on the job.  After previous behavior has sabotaged her career thus far, perhaps she can pivot and change her approach, and figure out how to bring some NEW Integrity of Character to the Presidential Office. "Miracles" do happen in life.

          If Trump is elected President ... same scenario ...  Trump's MOUTH has sabotaged his own campaign thus far. He has No Experience in political office, and does not know what to expect to have to deal with, while sitting in the Presidential SeatTrump is in for a very SERIOUS REALITY CHECK !!!  The JOB of U.S. PRESIDENT is MORE DIFFICULT than he ever imagined !!! It's NOT like ruling Trump International Empire or the Celebrity Apprentice !!!  That being a stated FACT  ... Perhaps Trump will realize within the FIRST 100 DAYS IN OFFICE, that he MUST adopt a NEW FRONT FACE FACADE STRATEGY in Acting as President and presenting himself to Congress & the Senate, the American People, and the World at Large. Trump will swiftly come to realize what new legislation is possible to enact, and what is Not possible to enact, dealing with Congress and the Senate.  Once that Reality Check sinks in, it remains to be seen, how Trump will Pivot and Change for the BETTER, in representing the Best Interests of the American People, both domestically and World Wide. Thus, Trump must also figure out how to bring some New Integrity of Character to the Presidential Office, and LEARN the JOB !!! ... "Miracles" do happen in life.

          No President can Please Everyone.  No President's New Policies can Please Everyone.  Not everyone will Benefit by New Approaches and New Ideas.

          However, I am giving BOTH Clinton and Trump the BENEFIT OF A DOUBT, b/c we, the American People, are STUCK with whomever is elected, and it just makes more sense to choose to see the Glass as Half Full rather than Half Empty. It's called POSITIVE THINKING and having a POSITIVE OUTLOOK on LIFE, b/c your MINDSET shapes your perception and your experience of life.

          Both Trump and Clinton Can Change ... Let's just HOPE that they DO CHANGE for the BETTER, in serving in the Office of the United States PRESIDENT !!!

          If someone else is elected President, the same reasoning should apply !!!  Always HOPE for the BEST to Occur !!! I believe Positive Thinking is part of the American Ideology !!!

            Well said Destinycreation, but I have extreme doubt that trump can change.  I don't think that he gets it, look who he brings into his team, Roger Ailes (women are going to love that, not!) And the other guy that runs Breitbart (extreme right wingers), trump does not get it.  Nothing will get done in Washington because trump is so thin skinned.  Trump would make a bad president.

              Abusive? No.

              Have you read some of your comments towards others in this thread...?

              The insults, the name calling... Now that's a form of abuse.

                Stack is rather infamous in lp. Maybe you just resent women standing up for themselves?

                  Those are campaign positions not cabinate positions.  IMO Trump will pick highly qualified people in various positions of expertise.  Hillary on the other hand will pick political flunkies just like obama did.  See the results?

                    It just shows poor judgement to pick Roger Ailes if you are trying to get women votes.  The other pick, the guy that runs Breitbart if you are trying to get black and hispanic votes.

                      I really don't think voters care much about campaign picks.  And while we're on the topic of "poor judgement".... How about that private unsecured server Hillary used as SECRETARY OF STATE OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA?  As I recall it was in a closet off a bathroom.  Is that right?  LOL

                        Hillary is still winning!  Trump is still losing and he is doing nothing to change that.

                         

                        With the emails, Hillary is still winning.

                            I called kingoearth man-child, oh no, what will become of me.

                            When you harass someone with the same questions, make the same statements over and over demanding answers, that is a form of mental and emotional abuse.

                            That is someone who wants to beat you down and control you. I have done none of that to anyone.

                            I spent 15 years helping abused women, the line of questioning and the throwing of someone's words in their face over and over is classic abuse.

                            Did you exchange a walk on part in the war ?
