So those independent voters who say they don’t vote for Trump ..... who do they hate again?

blacks
browns
jews
immigrants
the poor

I thought it was just Trump’s tribe that hate them... who knew all those independents were so full of hate for everybody
Just exactly how many truly "independents" do you think there are..?
I know the number is getting smaller every year
I know that if every single traditional GOP voter who voted in the last election actually voted for Trump (they didn't) - that Hillary Clinton would be President. I know that.

They may be a dwindling group but there are very good indicators that they came out for Trump this time - Michigan and Wisconsin pretty much prove that.

The DNC's biggest blunder was not seeing the writing when Bernie won the primary there. All downhill from there

it would be more correcter to say they came out against Hillary

there is nothing new in my observation above
There's also nothing incorrect (as best as I can tell)
Cynics are altruistic by nature. :nod:

Btw, Trump trails Biden by 10 and Bernie by 9 in the latest Fox News poll. He trails Biden by 11 in Michigan. Quit trolling the poor conks. :ohno:
Polls close to 17 months before an election are meaningless...Wake me up with a poll update a year from now..

Worthless too, but not as worthless as polls that include people who don‘t vote.

That’s a bunch of elegant word salad but you’re still ripping off Hillary Clinton - who more succinctly paraphrased it by just calling them a basket of deplorables

But you both miss the mark (wildly)

It wasn’t Trump’s tribe that got him elected. It was ultimately voters who previously cast votes for Barack Obama who swung things for Trump

If it had just been the tribal (deplorable) voters, we’d be calling Hillary President right now

:nod:

I don’t *think* Trump is going to gather as many of those votes this time
I'm talking about today not three years ago...

:nod:

and I don't care who says they aren't voting for Trump
I call bullsh!t on the polls and I think he wins easy with "nobody" voting for him

He stays in Putin's good graces he should be OK

That's cultural appropriation and you should be ashamed! Snowflake is a term used by alt-righters to denigrate overly sensitive alt-lefters. It's part of the cultural identity of the alt-right and should not be misappropriated by someone who is not of a like mind.

You need a different term to denigrate the overly sensitive in the center or alt-right. I suggest cupcake.
