Who Will Get The Nuclear Football?

According to the IEM Hillary currently has an 80% chance. That's 60% more than The Donald. But there was a similar gap like in the third week of August. Which was subsequently halved within thirty days. We have about a month to go. And Americans have preferred W over Al Gore before.

Thought Anderson Cooper did a good job yesterday. The final debate is in 10 days. At 5am.

The choice is clear: between one free-trade-avert, tax-avert tycoon-pervert who feels entitled to impunity, and another who feels she will just get elected because her opponent is just comitting hara-kiri and therefore has no effort to make.

Apologies for missing the link to The Donald's feigned clumsiness...

Shock and awe.

Sanjay Jagatsingh said...

The debate is tomorrow. Not today. Oops.

Sanjay Jagatsingh said...

She now has a 90% chance of winning.

Donald was for the first time ahead by 1% in an ABC poll. And has closed the gap in others. Some are already saying it's too close to tell while Moody's model which has been correctly predicting presidential elections for a while says Clinton will win by a large margin (they were quick to add that their model doesn't factor in the personalities of candidates).

Just saw that. If we factor in this analysis, then we can expect that kind of future... All this from the mismanagement of a simple regional trade agreement (RTA). We, in Dodoland, have a ministry for regional integration and our elites, the only ones in Africa, the very few in developping / newly developped countries, were about to sign into the TISA, as if blindfolded and gagged and hogtied into such an extremely restrictive, that we'd fall foul of so many rules as soon as we tried to erect some regulation, any regulation in fact.

We seem to be jumping with closed eyes again. Or is it with our brains off?

Here's a guide to the US elections published by The Economist.

What happens if Clinton or Trump don't win 270 electoral votes? This.

How fear can overturn a mathematical impossibility to become a reality

akagugo said...

Trump's cabinet is already quite unsettling: what to expect as from January 2017 when he is sworn in and gets the code to the red button?

akagugo said...

The president of cool bows out...

akagugo said...

Somebody tell me this ain't really happening, for real. Please.

Here's some more detail about the expression 'nuclear football' becoming a bit of a light joke...

Sanjay Jagatsingh said...

Eh bien.

Sanjay Jagatsingh said...

So Trump apparently shared classified information with the Russian Foreign Minister. Wonder what is next? Giving them the nuclear codes for a weekend?

akagugo said...

What next? What about giving away the position of your strategic submarines during a casual conversation? NO wonder that less than 200 days of being sworn in your Congress may be preparing his impeachment.
Much better than movies, eh?
