Your last sentence says it all. A 2% liberal bias in the polls is a very believable possibility.

You work your fucken tits off till 9.45pm, straight after work you're at a bar for drinks with corporate buddies, perhaps a few hours of some serious blow action, by 2am a couple of the best whores in Manhattan are sucking your balls in different directions. Then its a couple of hours sleep, show up at work and the boss goes 'kid, you got a presentation'. How prepared would any of us look?

US Assholes: We haven't found any signs of Russian interventions. That means they have to be using more suphisticated methods :D :D :D
Pavel Kochba (13 days ago)
+537monster And I am not blaming specifically one organisation. Behind "Assholes" there are media corps, politicians, lobbists, both presidental candidates, ignorants and others. Or how would you call prople, who attacked the same country (Iraq) both times with just fabricated fairy tales (Nayirah, WMDs, Kuwait arab-arab conflict, not our problem)?
537monster (13 days ago)
Pavel Kochba oh my god, the intelligence agency’s didn’t say that. They actually advised the government NOT to go into Iraq. I know this because I’m in the Army MI corps and have met people who worked with the CIA around that time. Powell’ was forced to make that conclusion by Cheney, Bush, and Rumsfeld (fuck his name, I don’t feel like looking it up). Politicians were the ones who lied, NOT THE CIA.
Pavel Kochba (13 days ago)
​+537monster Actually I did. Maibe I am not just as naive to believe in every fairy tale they told me. They also said Saddam has new WMDs, they said Russia surely poisoned Skripal, Iran is great theat and so many other things. So what?
537monster (13 days ago)
My god, you just haven’t looked at any news at all have you? You’ve just decided to be ignorant because it fits you’re views. Nobody can help you.

I could be wrong, but my impression is that he really, really hopes Trump loses. The way he listed every thing the Dems want to do to Trump, and why Trump NEEDED this win.

Firecrest (14 days ago)
Surely and I know I'm being naive but if the president has done something illegal it shouldn't make any difference whose elected. Also is he really suggesting the Republicans would gerrymander to get votes.

PRAYING Jesus Christ, Jesus show yourself mighty to your people, Lord there seems to be no way out, no way to fix things, no ways of solution, but Jesus you are the solution, you are the truth, you are the love and forgiveness, you are the author and finisher of all great things. Jesus if you can raise a nation up and take it down in a day, then Jesus can you not heal our nation and our people.Yes you can,we praise the name of Jesus. Jesus, quickly reveal yourself to us, that is best for each one of us, touch us the only place that you know and can touch, Jesus can you not minister individually to each person, the only way that they can be ministered to,. Jesus are you not greater than any and all calamity and evil, Jesus where a man sees no way out, your spirit testifies that you Jesus, you are the only way out. Jesus you are the author and finisher of all things, great and small. Jesus help us receive your perfect and perfecting love and forgiveness of the cross. Jesus you told me that if we could fully receive and understand the love and forgiveness of the cross, we would be transformed as a new spirit, a useful witness for Christ Jesus. Jesus we pray that you answer this prayer, that we receive THE FULL PORTION,of your perfect love and forgiveness of Jesus Christ.Jesus we praise your perfect love and forgiveness. Jesus we pray for personal and professional revival Lord Jesus not only does it have to happen in our heart, it has to happen in our family and in our workplace,,, Lord bring us to where your people are, there's no greater ministry then in our own families in our own workplace, Jesus show us the way to your fullness. Jesus you said, to pray for the greatest gift to prophesy to strengthen, encourage and comfort our people, to help raise them up. Jesus we repent of godless chatter, a lack of faith. Jesus we need the faith the size of a mustard seed to plant our faith at the altar,Jesus you will grow our faith. Jesus help us be the great communicators of your love and forgiveness, your faithfulness. Jesus Christ we pray that you come quickly, we need you and praise your mighty name, Jesus our Lord and Savior. Jesus come quickly, Jesus we cry out for repentant heart and spirit, seeking the perfect love and forgiveness, found only in Christ Jesus. Jesus is not the simple gospel, can be as simple as, the perfect and perfecting love and forgiveness of Jesus Christ. Jesus is this not available to all people saved and unsaved. Jesus we pray for this great awakening, correction, direction pointing to Christ Jesus, as Lord and Savior. The name of Jesus is above all names, the name of Jesus identifies the God we serve, the God that can save, forgive us of our sins, and love us into eternity now and forever. Jesus cannot the zeal of the Lord accomplish this great revival, harvest this great harvest and free our people, from captivity of the world and the evil one. Jesus not all is lost, but always gained, we hear that this is the greatest time and harvest, that the world will ever see. Jesus, Jesus, quickly come. Jesus we are standing in victory and not in defeat, because the victory was won on the cross let us praise your great name the name above all names, Christ Jesus our Savior and Lord, amen and amen. I AMen

This noob said at least one honest thing. That democrats have mostly moved to big cities and republicans to spread out country areas. Exactly, the left go where there's free handouts and welfare, the right go where they can be left alone more as they take care of themselves.

NOTICE AT THE END HE USE THE ARTICLE FOR "THEM" REFERING TO THE REPUBLICAN PARTY. AS OPPOSED TO US , THE DEMOCRATIC PARTY. TALK ABOUT UNBIASED. POLLS WERE WRONG IN 2016 AND THEY WILL BE WRONG AGAIN THIS TIME AROUND. THE JEWS WILL NOT REPLACE US.
Ronster23117 (14 days ago)
He erred in one aspect. Conservatives leave areas where Liberals roost and ruin, then congregate in areas with like-minded individuals. We still have "rights of association"...If Liberals want to congregate in cities and ruin them, then that's on them. But they'll continue to whine and find ways to strip and control conservatives because that's what they do. Unfortunate for them, we not folding anymore...

Read this article before you vote. THIS IS THE REASON WHY TRUMP'S DEPLORABLE FOLLOWERS BELIEVE ALL HIS LIES, STUPIDITY, ETC. THEY LOVE HIS RACISM, HIS HATE, HIS INCITING TO VIOLENCE, HIS MISOGYNY, HIS BIGOTRY, ETC. TRUMP IS THEIR "CONFEDERATE PRESIDENT !!"'

If the economist as left as the BBC and the guardian, then the Republicans will win, the British are living in cloud cuckoo land as far as judging the voters mood. I see England I see Birmingham as the future and they don't, so much for their projections.

Guys can you stop with the crappy comments about him looking tired, the report was one of the few on here that was a little more even straight forward and fact based for once. Newscasts would normally use better lighting and make up for video production, they've been lazy taking him to a side office with crappy lighting and just told him to stand there - I don't think the production team did him any favours with this one, but based on the engagement response rate and views I want this man as a staple for the Economist, he's keeping it real and I think we're all tired of news agencies talking to themselves. And everyone in journalism looks like this with a deadline, welcome to the real world people :)

Election fraud is the key to victory over the UN, banksters, deep state, illegal immigrant voters and the criminal democrats.. All of the cabal forces are involved in election fraud, therefore, like the human trafficking, we have their Achilles Heel before us. Now all we need to do is seize the election ballots, arrest anyone who tries or does destroy them immediately, and have a nationwide recount, sorting out the fraudulent ballots. Then detain, prosecute, incarcerate, seize all assets. If a corrupt Judge interferes, arrest, detain....  simply ignore counting destroyed democrat ballots as not verifiable.

Models show Democrats taking 229 seats but even a 2 point error in favor of Republicans could change the landscape. Very interesting. The problem with computer models is that they stand or fall on the accuracy of the data. One forgotten variable or oversight completely ruins the models prediction. Whether it’s predicting flu season, climate change, or hurricane forecasts. Early voter turnout and voter enthusiasm is very high this year and Republicans have been closing the enthusiasm gap over the last 2 months. I see a 218 to 217 final result.

The following are four famous quotes that really do sum up the voting scam: "Presidents aren't elected, they're Selected." Franklin D. Roosevelt. "We hang the petty thieves and appoint the great ones to public office." Aesop "It's not who votes that counts, it's who counts the votes that counts." Joseph Stalin "If voting made any difference they wouldn't let us do it." Mark Twain. So I like to refer to the voting day in November as "November fool's day." :O)

Mister editor, here is flaw in your prediction model. You take data from this person and data from that person then you feed it into your computer without ever having left your office to actually meet and talk to a real voter. It didn't work the last time and it's not working this time. There is a real simple statistical method which I have explained numerous times. Make yourself a giant chart and put as many names of political commentators as you can. Every time one is wrong, put a red mark. Every time one is right, put a black mark. Do not confuse agreeing or disagreeing with right or wrong. Separate yourself from your ideology, religion, beliefs, sexual preference, etc, and get scientific about this. I did it years ago and came up with Ann Coulter as being the most statistically accurate predictor. She said Mitt Romney would get the Republican nomination and she was absolutely right. She said that Trump was the only Republican that could beat Hillary(right again). Jesus said that there will always be war, poverty and injustice in the world so seek for truth and only truth, folks.
