Panic at the Washington Post

Jeff Bezos has turned the Washington Post into the Camp Clinton Chronicle with stories so predictably anti-Trump (and anti-logic) that the paper is now a primer on how not to run a news organization.

Therefore, its readers should be shocked to learn that somehow Trump is tied with her.

How can this be after mountains of stories that show Trump as a basket of deplorables who is incapable of running a competent campaign?

Why, the Washington Post has assured us that Hillary Clinton can do no wrong and who is universally loved for her many, many, many years of devoted service to her country, which has left her and her devoted husband nearly broke when they left the White House. 

But yet, here we are. Bumbling Trump and Perfect Hillary are tied.

If the polls closed right at this moment (which they won't) and if the results in each state perfectly mirrored the current RealClearPolitics average of polls in each state (which they won't), Hillary Clinton would be elected president by an electoral college margin of 8 votes. From her high in the polls a week or two ago, Clinton's leads in a number of critical battleground states have collapsed or evaporated entirely. The election could come down to one state with four electoral college votes that flips from Clinton to Donald Trump and, boom: A 269-269 electoral college tie, and a vote by the House of Representatives to decide on the next president — who, given the composition of the House, would almost certainly be Donald Trump.
But Mister Bump quickly assured readers that everything will be OK by Election Day. He cited Jon Ralston of NPR. The Democrats once again will slay the Hitler the Republicans nominated, and our planet will survive another four years without poverty, drug abuse, war, or terrorism:
Polls may not capture turnout well. Some 34 million people have already voted, many of them in battleground states where Clinton was winning by a decent margin when the people voted. (This, again, is why Ralston's so confident.)
What's more, there are six states that currently have a margin of two points or less in the polling average. On Election Day in 2008 and 2012, RCP tracked only four states that close. Narrow margins are where strong ground efforts — pulling people to the polls — can make a difference. By all accounts, Clinton's efforts in that regard are superior to Trump's.
However, he added:
A lot depends on both turnout and how the polls move over the next few days. The Post-ABC tracking poll has Clinton regaining her national lead; the polls in Florida have moved back in her favor. (Needless to say, if Clinton wins Florida, she wins the election.) If they hold steady, it's something of a toss-up. At his best over the course of the campaign, Donald Trump has scrambled to a tie. That's about where he is now, perhaps a little behind.
But a state or two goes his way? If the polls keep heading in his direction for the next five days, even a relatively minor amount? The incoming president Barack Obama congratulates on the west front steps of the Capitol in January will be a certain businessman from New York.
Of course, the polls do nothing but measure. Changing the dial on your scale does not make you thinner. I think the polls have been off and as the cliché says, the only poll that matters is the one held on Tuesday. Good luck Libsplainin those results next week.

The American press has never been this dishonest. The Washington Post leads this movement. May Jeff Bezos enjoy the antitrust investigation of Amazon that awaits him beginning January 20th.


Hate the media? Love The Donald? "Trump the Press" is the book for you. It skewers media experts with their own words. "Trump the Press" is available as a paperback, and on Kindle


  1. Peak Trump will be Nov. 8...or 9th. Looking for him higher on Everest than Hillary.

    1. You know, The Donald is a helluva practical guy.

      The original Hillary ... Sherpa Tenzing's bud ... replied to the "Why climb Everest?" question with the answer "Because it's there."

      But The Donald figures ""Because it's there? That's a reason to go AROUND a mountain, man, not OVER it."

      And that's why he's in the home stretch now, while Hillary's still freezing her bony ass off on a glacier at 20,000 feet somewheres.

    2. My "Everest" is a pile of votes, but her "Everest" is a pile of e-mails.

      sir, you have obviously never seen hillary's hippo sized azz!

  2. The calls being made about this or that candidate being ahead in early voting or returned absentee ballots are pure garbage. They're based solely on the party affiliation and not on who the vote was cast for. I would venture that far more dems will be voting for Trump than the other way around.

  3. “…The American press has never been this dishonest….”

    So the legacy media reporting on Vietnam, Three Mile Island and Watergate was honest?

    Or were they just as mendacious back then, but we didn’t have Assange’s Wikileaks, O’Keefe’s Project Veritas and the rest of the alternative media to show us just how bad they were?

    As far back as I can remember, the legacy media has always lied about the important issues in order to influence elections. One of the wonderful things about Trump’s presidential win, that it will demonstrate that they have lost much of their power.

    1. Not only will they have lost most of their power, but the Clintonite Quislings will be sickened to discover that the Weiner emails implicate them up to their necks in the Hillary Crimes.

      It's "Code Brown" in many a Leftie Journo household this week.

  4. In close elections, Republicans have to win by enough to offset Dimocrat cheating. Remember, in every recount, Dims find more votes in closets, in file cabinets, under beds, etc. And they keep recounting until they win. It took three recounts to push Christine Gregoire over the top in Washington. Illegal voters pushed Al Franken over the top in Minnesota.
