    Probably an outlier but there's a tie in a Missouri poll.

    "A survey of 625 likely voters conducted last weekend shows the Democrat Clinton with 41 percent to the Republican Trump’s 40 percent, with Libertarian Gary Johnson at 9 percent. The telephone poll, conducted by Mason-Dixon Polling & Research, has a margin of error of plus or minus 4 percentage points."
    What's the usual (or average or median) sample size in these polls? 625 seems small to me but I'm not familiar with typical numbers.

    edit - also Gary Johnson 9% wtf. I wonder why Johnson seems to be getting significantly more exposure or support than Jill Stein.

    I mean, Johnson was an actual governor with a national profile for doing things and the Libertarian party gets at least a nonzero number of people elected, along with actually being on the ballot in enough states to (theoretically) win.

    It's a massively stronger party than the Green party.

    I don't agree with the libertarians but They have about as strong a ticket as they have had for a while. They are currently on the ballots in most states and should be on the remainders before the election and they are running two known GOP governors on their ticket. Given trump I could easily see the libertarian party at least getting enough polling to get onto the debate stage. I think they get plowed by clinton and trump mostly because they are exactly the type of republicans that their voter base rejected so forcefully in the primaries.

    I think they're going to have a very hard time getting on to the debate stage.

    Their outlier high-polls are currently sitting at 10-12% after the RNC. Putting on my Pundit Hat (tm), I can see the RNC giving the Libertarians a boost at peeling off Clinton supporters but I see the DNC as much more likely to reel people back in to Clinton than to have them jump from Trump to Johnson. It's possible a continued negative campaign and bad news cycles propel them upwards, but they aren't in a solid position to hit the debate stage.

    It's better than that if you put it next to his other tweet from before the speech.

    I doubt his ego would be able to handle being trounced in the primaries. Which is what will happen.

    If he doesn't win this time, the GOP is going to fight hard to reclaim the message that they just ceded to the Democratic Party last night.

    ...s-seriously?

    Yes.

    They asked him about his harmonicas and he said he has 6 at all times, but they're in his briefcase and he didn't have it with him because he "didn't want to inflict that kind of cognitive dissonance on the American public this early in the morning." He said he will have them on the campaign trail though and would be happy to play at any time.

    Then she thanked him for his time, and he said that gem above.

    So, on the Democratic side we've got the happiest, most jovial guy who's upbeat and awesome and carries harmonicas around.

    On the Republican side...

    I don't necessarily want a Mondale map, but I want this election to show not just the Republican Party but every single person in the nation that behaving like Trump is NOT OKAY. I want to replace "douche" and "asshole" in our slang dictionary with "Trump".

    I loved Hillary's "Bully" ad and I hope they can come out with more along those lines.

    These are not feelings I had last year when Trump entered the race.

    If I were feeling charitable I would suggest it's an autocorrect mistake and he was trying to type "speech".

    But it's more likely the fact that any time Hillary raises her voice at all they describe her as shrill or screaming because sexism.

    edited July 2016
    I really wonder which way my parents will go this election. I'm pretty sure they both voted Democrat up until 2000, although my dad has said he's voted for people from both parties in the past. I think it was around the year 2000 that my mom started watching Bill O'Reilly on Fox News, and my dad would watch it with her. Their news evenings for those first few years of Fox News usually involved switching between Fox, CNN, and MSNBC during primetime, but gradually CNN and MSNBC fell by the wayside. It was to the point that Fox was the only news channel that they watched. When I finally moved out two years ago, my dad would DVR the morning news shows on there, and probably still does.

    My parents are not religious. My dad's family was secular until he was a teenager, when suddenly they decided they had to be Catholics (I suspect this was a reaction to the Red Scare, as people in his extended family were members of the Communist Party). He went to college a few years later and the church never took hold with him. My mom's mother was a Jehovah's Witness, but her father was not.

    My mom has vague feelings of an afterlife or something, and she is hugely anti-abortion. My dad absolutely hates affirmative action based on his experience with it at a place he worked from the 1960s until the 1980s. He gets red-in-the-face angry when people talk about wanting racial equality and thinks everyone is already equal now. All of this was really amplified by the time Obama was elected in 2008. I remember one time when Obama was on TV and he stomped out of the room, yelling "HE'S A N---!" repeatedly. It is also no coincidence that 2008 was the last time I willingly talked about politics with my parents.

    Based on what I just said, Trump seems like the perfect representation of my dad's views. My mom, on the other hand, apparently cannot stand Trump. And the other night she mentioned how she really wanted to see Bill Clinton's speech. They both voted for Clinton twice. I think she still has fond memories of his administration, but also really hates that he cheated on Hillary and doesn't like that Hillary stayed married to him.

    So, yeah. No idea where they'll vote in November, but they're in Florida so their vote matters quite a bit. Hopefully they choose Johnson or something, because I don't see my dad voting Democrat ever again anyway.

    Parts of this week's DNC reminded me pretty heavily of the Republican conventions from earlier in this century; I remember previous DNCs being much more sedate.

    Pretty sure that's been a very intentional move to try and pick up some GOP voters who are wavering in the face of Trump.
