    If you need to pretend that all polls that do not accrue to the glory of Trump are bogus (virtually all of them), you should, at least, be able to document your fake claim that Quinnipiac predicted a landslide proximate to the election.

    On October 16, 2016, as the margin was narrowing, it showed Clinton with a 7 point lead, and that had dropped to the final 2.1 point lead on November 8.

    Three weeks before the vote, Quinnipiac made no mention of your "Landslide!" that I can find.

    Don't count your chickens til' they hatch; remember Hillary was guaranteed to be a shoo-in. If Biden somehow gets elected, you'll have mud on your face, just like when Hillary supporters had when trump somehow got elected.

    And she lost the election in an electoral college landslide.

    It is amusing that a thread predicated upon an out-of-date snippet of one poll should elicit such ire when more comprehensive and up-to-date figures are provided.

    If all polls are unreliable, it follows that the thread, entitled "CNN poll: 56% approve Trump's handling of economy," must be automatically dismissed as bogus as well.

    Who said all polls are unreliable ??? The polls predicting a Hillary landslide are demonstrably incorrect. How is the poll you referenced incorrect ???

    80,000 votes is far from a “landslide”

    304 to 227 is a landslide.

    To a person looking to satisfy an agenda those numbers are all that matter — ignoring all metrics on how those numbers came to be takes a certain level of ignorance
    80,000 votes is far from a “landslide”

    Trump was elected because he won the electoral college 304 to 227.

    What is the minimum number of votes it would have taken for him to have lost?
    Is that number a “landslide”?

    yep, Trump won with millions less votes than Clinton, that is also a fact, I don't disagree with that - facts are facts

    The popular vote in California is irrelevant.

    Any fool can twirl around in a circle crying "BS BS .. its all BS - foul bizarre logic - further out than the moon landing .. :)

    For future reference - and argument consists of 2 things .. 1) statement of premise 2) evidence - proof - support for claim.

    You are missing 2 :omfg::omfg::omfg:

    All of those were missing on your post I responded to. You have no self knowledge and don't know what your saying. Here's your last other worldly statement.
    "So just like when someone illegally stopped and searched - and cocaine is found but inadmissible on this basis - the obstruction stuff should also be ignored."
    the investigation of a president by congress has nothing to do with illegal search and seizers of illegal drugs. Once again so far out on a limb it might as well be on mars.

    I didn't say the investigation had anything to do with illegal search and seizure . So it turns out that you are the one spouting BS - building a fallacious strawman :)

    Thank you for making an argument though - this was an improvement over last. Now we have to work on making coherent arguments instead of logical fallacy.

    Yes on top of everything else your posts are muddled and instead of saving time you didn't even take the opportunity to explain what your post was about. Nonsense on top of nonsense. And totally false B.S accusation with no proof about what I was attempting to do. Thus no proof, no evidence and no logic so far.

    So you return to the same vomit as the first post - Any foll can twirl around crying "BS - NO proof" but this is not an argument - refer to the first post.

    When you tried to substantiate your claim after the first post - you made a false accusation. When this failed you return to twirling around mumbling gibberish. and crying "BS BS" :)

    Is this the sum total of your debate skills ?

    Trump's Cononavirus bump is on top of his impeachment bump. After 16 years of Dumb and Dumber it's nice to have a real President again.

    Thank goodness we are powering into this Black Swan Corona virus with a Trump Strong Economy and the best employment of our lifetimes.

    I wouldn't be surprised to see the Stock Market take a few more legs down before it finds it's floor and then powers back up. Now's a great time to have some cash on hold to push in at the bottom.

    A test of the 2018 low wouldn't surprise me a bit.

    A retest of the 2016 low would probably be the buying opportunity of a lifetime.

    You really need to expand your horizons.
