It appears that the GOP is in more of a state of failure than the Democrats only because the progressive left owns mainstream media. Make no mistake - both major parties are in shambles. You're just not hearing about the abysmal state of the left on CNN.

How are y'all liking the news that the FBI is reopening the Clinton email investigation? I wonder what happens first. The wiki leaks dump or Comey commuting suicide by shooting himself in the head six times with a five shot revolver?

Oh I agree with you rainjack... but the Dems look set to be in for another 8 years unless the GOP can work a massive miracle.

I am happy that we can have the distraction of the World Series and High School football during this election!

But I love to play pundit just as much as the next guy and with less than 3 days till the election this is what Im going to predict:

I think it comes down to North Carolina.

We all know that when predicting this it's a matter of filling out the Electoral College map and NC is just to close to call I think more than any other state (save New Hampshire but that one matters less than NC)

I'm grouping the Swing States into categories here:

More Red than is being discussed: Trump wins these states
Georgia, Arizona, Nevada

More Blue than is being discussed: Clinton wins these
Pennsylvania, Virginia, New Mexico, Michigan

States that are close but 3rd Party Candidate plays a major roll:
This is the biggest thing that will swing this election and is not really being talked about! While I put New Mexico into the Clinton side...Gary Johnson has polled over 20% there and I dont think polls really track 3rd parties as well as the major two...still think NM is blue...but...Johnson is what is making New Hampshire up for grabs for Trump and the same with Iowa and Colorado (all state Johnson is very popular in). I think the Johnson effect give Trump Iowa and Colorado, but NH stays blue.

McMullin in Utah is hurting Trump but like New Mexico I dont think the 3rd party will win the state, so this one will stay a Red state.

So that leaves us North Carolina, Florida, Ohio, to decide it all: I see Ohio as Red (been trending red for a while now), and Florida I think is Red...that leaves NC for the win...which I think based on the way the last 2 years worth of news coming out of NC the Dems will turn out better than the Republicans and it goes blue and Clinton wins.

Basically Clinton has to win 2 of these 5 and Trump has to win 4 of the 5: North Carolina, Ohio, Florida, Pennsylvania, Colorado

But heck who knows

There was a great line back several years ago when Rick Perry had three opponents running against him for re-election (2006?).

There are only three people in the State of Texas that Rick Perry could beat in an election. Fortunately for him, all three of them are running against him.

These characters make the same threats every election since 1980 and none of them, except Johnny Depp, ever carried through with it, and even he did not stay very long in France. Never fear Topher, you guys are not about to be invaded by a bunch of Hollywierd idiots.

Obama has yet to use any lame duck pardons. I feel sure Hilliary will be on his list. Clintons do not do jail time.

Don't hold your breath on that! I bet she gets a full pardon from the current denizen of the White House.

You sure you don't want Jim Carrey or Shatner back????
