Anon, will you ever quit this "the experts predicted a landslide victory for Hillary" nonsense? The consensus of pollsters, just before voting began on November 8 2016, was that Clinton's odds of winning enough Electoral votes had dropped down to 80%, & Trump had a 20% chance to win, so that 20% came through.Even Trump expected a Clinton win, But VERY FEW folks expected any landslide. The last national poll conducted before the 2016 election showed Hillary leading Trump by 1.7% in the national popular vote. But in the actual election, Clinton did a little better than that, as she ended up winning the popular vote by 2.2%(So national polls DIDN'T PREDICT a landslide by any historic definition of one)ACTUALLY, what should have stopped people from taking most polling results very seriously, was confusion suddenly being injected into the election, by James Comey's surprise announcement, ONLY 11 days before the election, that the FBI was re-opening the Clinton email investigation. That just made any polling done up to then, INVALID. Plus, there were too few polls taken late enough in the 3 critical states of Michigan, Wisconsin, and Pennsylvania, to provide enough info to be able to tell just how much of a negative effect on Clinton's support, that Comey's late campaign announcement would end up having in those crucial states. And since Trump's total winning popular vote margin for the states of Michigan, Wisconsin, and Pennsylvania COMBINED, ended up being less than 79 thousand votes, DIVIDED BETWEEN those 3 states, the Comey announcement only needed to cut Clinton's support by a fraction of 1% in each of those states, to enable the very narrow victories which Trump got in them, that made him President. Actually, people who study the effects of how negative advertising against candidates tends to LOWER their support, are almost all in agreement that the Comey announcement, which was AS DAMAGING as any negative ad, had to have cost Clinton 1 or 2 % of her support, AT THE VERY LEAST. And that effect, which was TOO LATE IN THE GAME for most pollsters to be able to measure, was MORE THAN ENOUGH to win the 3 states for Trump, and with them, the Presidency. America's more respected polls, like Gallup, usually provide quite accurate results. But the volatile conditions created in 2016's campaign, due to Comey's late announcement, meant that the only way that pollsters could have accurately caught the late trends in the 3 critical states which decided the election, would literally have been for pollsters to have had to interview people on the morning of the election, in those states. Because those places were so close that a late swing of less than 1 out of each 100 voters in those states, could change the name of the winner.In 2016, people should have realized that even as scientifically valid as the best polling methods employed in that campaign were, that late campaign announcement by Comey actually served to throw polling results to the winds. However since the polling results which had been generated, were the only ones available, those were the polling results that were reported in the media.And with national popular vote polling STILL having turned out to be ONLY a half percent off from the actual voting result, people who try to use 2016 as a reason to discredit polling, are simply being dishonest by deliberately failing to mention the EXTREMELY UNUSUAL factor of a late campaign announcement about an FBI investigation of one of the 2 major candidates, having thrown quite a MAJOR WILD CARD into the mix, in the last stage of the 2016 campaign.So Anon, it would be nice if folks like you stopped lying with your false claim that a "Hillary landslide" was predicted in 2016, when no reputable polling organization was saying that at the end of October 2016, or during the week of November which preceded the election. So you making that sort of claim is really beneath you, since it's exactly like the kind of multiple falsehoods that Donald Trump feeds to each rally audience, that then cause the clueless zombies of his crowds, to wildly cheer for those lies. And that is such a pathetic sight!

And yet you sit and watch it like some mindless, liberal, sheep.
Your citations of Nicole Wallace and Joe Scarborough do absolutely nothing to strengthen your argument. Both are vehement never Trumpers, who receive a paycheck from MSDNC solely and specifically to espouse their anti-Trump opinions, which have no basis in fact. If MSDNC or CNN for that matter ever had a guest on any of their programs who agreed with the White House on anything such as Harlan Hill head of Democrats for Trump, you could bet your bottom dollar that such an individual would either be shouted down by the other members of the panel or mysteriously develop technical difficulties preventing their microphone from being heard over the airwaves, thus exiting them from the show.This in contrast to FOX News which has regularly had hosts and panelists over the years, who are on the left side of the political spectrum such as the late Alan Colmes, Juan Williams, Greta Van Susteran, Kirsten Powers, and Leslie Marshall. Unlike those other outlets, FOX has never been afraid to debate the issues. But you would never know that if all you were exposed to was the left wing lamstream media.Another insidious point you seem to belaboring is the comparison between Maxine Waters and Sarah Palin. Other than the fact that both were elected to public office and they are of the same biological sex, the two women have absolutely nothing in common. Waters is a stupid, lying, racist demagogue, who is currently in the process of whipping up hysteria so as to encourage acts of verbal and physical abuse to be committed against Trump cabinet members.In contrast, Sarah Palin has never said or done anything to promote any kind of violence or unrest. Whether it was her being Governor of Alaska or candidate for Vice President of the United States in the 2008 election, she always conducted herself with the utmost of dignity and class. The left wing media as most evidenced by the Tina Fey impersonation of her on Saturday Night Live did all they could to turn her into a cartoon character. The fact that they would ridicule a classy woman like Sarah and have a hands off policy when it comes to Waters tells you everything you need to know about those biased assholes.
Ran across this in my browsing, thought this was kinda funny.
