For a few more weeks? Or are we done with this as a regular topic? Your thoughts?
After this Tuesday we should know who will be our next president. Even after all this time, I’m not sure if I’m ready.
Any comments on the Electoral College?
This article lifted my spirits a bit.
History Repeats as Farce, Then as 2016
‘We’ve been divided in much, much worse fashion before, like 1861 when we were actually killing each other.’
We’re dragging to the finish. Although I hear (from both sides) about the great concern that the latest October surprise will torpedo HRC’s chances for the presidency, a part of me believes she will survive this. What do you think?
The end (of the campaign) is near. Voting takes place in 15 days.
“If [Trump] gets in, good luck to him. That’s what the people wanted….”
Yes, this is a democracy, and if Trump becomes President, there’s no blaming Trump. It’s something the people made happen. The same goes for Hillary and for our awful predicament having Hillary and Trump as the candidates. That’s us….
What’s on your mind?
ADDED: Just saw this.
Answer these 11 questions that were part of a national survey conducted by the Pew Research Center to find out where you fit on the partisan political spectrum. And see how you compare with other Americans by age, race, religion and gender.
The campaign continues.
Any election comments?
The first presidential debate between Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump promises to be the most watched ever, with an audience that could exceed 100 million people, according to experts interviewed by The Hill.
A debate with an audience that size would be something never seen before in U.S. politics and would be a figure close to what the Super Bowl gets.
The first debate is tomorrow, September 26.
Another week of this crazy campaign unfolds.
Trump, Clinton pledge to pause campaigns for 9/11
In a presidential race that has ignored most political conventions, both candidates promise to honor the anniversary.
After today, both candidates will resume their “plan to pummel each other all the way to November”.
With Labor Day upon us, the presidential campaign begins the home stretch.
Your weekly election thread is open for discussion.
The presidential campaign continues. What are your thoughts?
Are you tired of this dismal presidential campaign yet?
Here’s your open thread for any election thoughts.
The conventions are done, and now the next phase of the campaign has begun. Share you political comments here.
This week we’ll see the Democrats hold their convention in Philadelphia.
Any thoughts on the race?
The Republican convention starts tomorrow. Your thoughts?
I thought I would change the weekly election post to Sunday so it would not distract attention from our regular Monday post. Please continue to give me feedback on your preferences.
Any thoughts on our political races? This commentary caught my attention.
Before you push us to judge whether Hillary Clinton or Donald Trump would do better in bringing us together in racial harmony, Mr. Healy, please say a few words about why President Obama has failed. Of course, neither Clinton nor Trump inspires hope for a new opportunity at racial harmony. That’s what Obama did in 2008. He was ideal for that issue and we voted for the hope. Now, so many years later, things seem even worse. Can you analyze how that happened? Because that did happen. I don’t see how we can begin to think about what more Trump or Clinton could do unless we understand why President Obama failed.
If Obama couldn’t unite us, why should we think either of the current candidates can?
This week I’m trying something a little different with the election update.
At the request of some Totebaggers who want to see election comments show up in the “recent comments” feed on the side bar, this week’s election update will be an extra Monday “post” instead of the usual “page” that shows up as a tab on the blog header bar. Due to the way WordPress works, this is easiest way to make comments show up in the regular feed.
Speak up if you like it or if you don’t. Or if you have other suggestions or comments.
