    Election results do not reflect merely personal popularity or the appeal of issues positions. Pure politics matter as well. And so, here are three reasons that Hillary Clinton will win the November election.


    THE GROUND GAME. Public opinion polls are worth nothing when compared to the ability to register and turn out people who will vote for you. This requires sophisticated, comprehensive organization in precincts throughout the country, including carefully planned use of internet venues such as social media. In 2008, Hillary Clinton was overmatched in these matters when running against Barack Obama in the Democratic primaries. Obama’s team understood how to make best use of old and new tools in organizing his campaign, and this was a big factor in his being able to defeat Clinton and later John McCain. During the 2012 campaign, Obama’s supporters refined their techniques. Many of those supporters are now working for Clinton. She will not be outmaneuvered again, particularly because Donald Trump’s campaign reflects total lack of understanding of grass-roots organizing.

    The analysis I posted, makes the assumption that Barack's supporters will support Clinton....big mistake. Many of Barack's AA supporters aren't voting for anyone at all, apparently.

    But, this lawsuit will probably not be settled before November. It might shine a bright, negative light, on the Dems, though. And, this is why the Dems were leery of Sanders (an Independent) running as a Dem in the first place. Had he won the nomination, would he (his bidders) be crying unfair? Rigged? Etc.

    True, but remembering that she is running against TRUMP, not Sanders, who is the biggest liar?

    Most blacks fear Donald Trump's right wing rhetoric ad nauseam...

    And his alleged white supporters are just praying for another miracle to take place in their lifetimes:

    Also they need to remember what remains the final destination of
    evil doers in our midst
    as well!!

    Yes, they were. Considering that Sanders has always called the system rigged, it doesn't make sense that he would run at all.

    In spite of Bernie Sanders idealistic proposals:

    We also have to factor in today's black
    undereducated students in many public schools...

    And a higher wage for just flipping burghers wouldn't bring about true reform of this nation's class based pecking order...

    Happy to make you laugh...

    But, maybe the public is more surprised to catch Hill in a lie than Donald. Donald's blatant lies are his M.O. Remember he said that 80% of the homicides committed against whites were committed by AAs? Then, he went on to say that Mexican immigrants were criminals...murderers and rapists. Something about Muslims being terrorists, etc. Don't know if we went line by line who would be the biggest liar, but Trump's blatant lies are expected, while Hill's insidious lies are more surprising, and more newsworthy?

    I've kinda thought that if they increase the minimum wage to $15, the cost of things will go up respectively.

    The historical record easily reveals much about these various era's actual practices:

    I. e., how their white mainstays didn't advance our black folks best interests from the getgo:

    Hence my comments about what Bernie Sanders proposed didn't make him more than another wannabe reformer...

    Revolutions actually topple tyrants!!
