Make your mind up. Which one is it, the 'daft left' or the 'alt-right'?
It a left spread meme aimed at the alt right. And it's daft.
I keep reading this but it's not a popularity contest. People should vote for what they think is important to them and I think that is what people have done here. I have read and heard so much talk about dwindling job opportunities and security. Trump promises them those things. If your life is in such a state that you feel voting Clinton won't fix that then you go the other way, as is the state of US politics.
It's short sighted to say "Obama was a nice guy, Trump isn't". Someone on radio 4 the other day was stating that Obama put the country in more debt during his tenure than all his predecessors combined! I wonder how true that is, but if so, those things are more important to me than voting for a personality.
Clearly people have just voted for someone who is not a politician. Genuinely that simple.
Clinton camp telling everyone to go home as they wont be saying any more until the morning..
John Podesta just sent all the HC punters home.
Id give him 4 years at most. He might have been able to deliver a populist message and capitalise on the unpopularity of his opponent. But he is still Donald and he is still absurdly unsuited to the job. If he gets t do much of what he promised, I see it being a very rough 4 years for everyone. Let's just hope his party can reign him in.
Maine to Clinton.
The will of the american people stinks...............
218 to 245 now
What did I wake up to?
It's a split vote I think
Another election you called wrong
she got 3 of 4
The people are angry and they have spoken just like in leaving the EU. Good for them
yes all the best decisions come when you're angry.
On the plus side there is going to be no excuse for comedy writers to be lacking in material
What's the other one?
If you are going to say Brexit, quote me.
It's a shame that it's taken this and Brexit for the establishment politicians to realise how badly they have lost the trust of the people.
At least Trump will be over in 4 years, Brexit won't go away.
