Creamsicle Meltdown

New PRRI research released today shows Trump on the losing end of a historic gender gap:

2016-10-11-1

As expected, non-whites favor Clinton over Trump by huge margins (72% vs. 17%), but Clinton is also annihilating Trump among white women with a college degree (68% to 29%), and even white women without a degree are split 40%-40% between Clinton and Trump. The findings can be read in full here.

Meanwhile, the incomparable Sam Bee weighed in on PussyGate and presidential debate #2. The whole show was fabulous, but here’s a clip:

Samantha Bee called presidential debate #2 a “grotesque travesty of democracy.” Pretty much! As I mentioned yesterday, many of us lady folk were angry and disgusted at the spectacle of a qualified woman like Hillary Clinton being stalked and insulted by hirsute walking Roofie.

Bee says Trump knows he’s losing and is therefore prepared to “suicide-bomb” the election. If Trump’s Twitter output this morning is any indication, Bee is dead right about that:

Uh-oh. He’s shaking out the Tic Tacs right now and limbering up the stubby orange fingers. It’s time to protect your pussy, America! C’mon ladies — and allies of all genders! Let’s knee this sleazy shitbag in the groin and step over his bloated carcass into history!

    He scares me so I’m happy that the steady news and trend is people disavowing him and declaring they’ll vote for either Hillary or someone else. I think Cruz was the last man onboard the SS Shitshow and folks are leaving the boat. That’s a trend I can believe in, but ye gods, I cannot wait until Nov 9!

    I got to watch Bee’s show last night, very good, very funny, with a bit of sadness slipped in (she mentioned her own experiences with sexual harassment very briefly in a slightly comedic way).

    I can’t believe 17% of POC are supporting Trump. That number should be single digits.

    SenyorDave says:

    I still hope that Trump drops out and is replaced. Two reasons:

    1. The increasingly small possibility that he wins and the country is imperiled.
    2. I think he and his white nationalist movement is legitimized by his being the GOP candidate.

    I know most think he has no chance and his replacement would have a better chance, but the possibility of a an October surprise/issue, especially terrorism-related, is always there. Besides, if he drops out many of his supporters will write him in, unless he directs them to vote for a candidate of his choice.

    Brilliant Sam Bee clip!
    I signed up to do GOTV calls next week after Colorado ballots get in the mail–somewhat terrified, but I’m told I’ll have a script and will be calling Democratic voters, just to make sure they got their ballots and will be mailing them back. I can do this–for her, for the country, for all of us!

    It does seem, at least, that the horserace narrative has taken a fatal blow. There were a couple of reports of insta-polls with joyous ‘Trump Won!’ headlines… but then, not so much. And then a little later… even less. At this point, the horserace narrative is at the galvanic frog leg stage; it twitches when you shoot a couple of volts through it, but it’s dead.

    It is …. for white nationalists. For a lot of people it’ll be the opposite – that the GOP is delegitimized for being the face of white nationalism. The big question will be how many is “a lot”.

    @SenyorDave: I think the white movement is becoming, or perhaps by now simply is, self-legitimizing. This could be good, as the more they are isolated and purified, the closer they come to consisting of 100% them and 0% anything else, the clearer it will be that they are not a supermajority on a national scale. But they will still be a supermajority in the rural areas — and in their own minds.

    And BTW, I am getting more than a little tired of male right wing sleaze buckets trying to pedal their misogyny and bigotry as normal among men. I had an exchange on FB with a couple of maroons who called the athletes who disputed that men in locker rooms talk like Trump, full of BS. They then upgraded this to Total BS, then Double BS. I told them I would start taking them seriously when they got to Quadruple BS.

    That’ll show the Establishment – go for it, Trumpkins! Vote for Trump and no one else. And while you’re at it, Establishment folks will be voting for Johnson, Clinton, maybe even writing in St. Reagan at the top – anyone but Trump. Even assuming GOP turnout is ‘normal’, if each side skips half the ballot, it’ll look like half of ‘normal’, especially compared to a motivated Democratic party.

It’s always been there, but now he’s made it “respectable”, so these jackasses are more willing to let their freak flag fly. Same with the white nationalists.

    I know a wingnut who did pretty much the same thing. Now, in his case, he was very clearly going to vote Trump come election day, but he was trying to play a little bit of Purer Than Thou while he cast about for a justification (if nothing came up, his justification would’ve been “Because Hillary Clinton!”). Still, it was very odd that this of all things is what he went with. His slogan is basically: “Trump shouldn’t lose for saying bad things; Hillary should lose because she’s a criminal*!” Fuckin’ weird.

    PS: He’s been screaming for years that one of our biggest problems as a nation is that the damn Demmycrats have “coarsened our political culture.” Now he’s voting for Trump. Ha ha! Ha?

    And yes, in phonebanking for Clinton at this point, you’re calling people who were identified (via prior calls in the spring and summer) as voting for Hillary, just reminding them to mail in their ballots or urging to them to vote on election day and get their friends out, etc. Or telling them about a rally in their area, which people get exited about it. It’s fun!

    Also, I have a couple of friends who have been on a social media Facebook tear, making sure everyone knows that BOTH candidates suck! They want everyone to know they haven’t been sucked in to this mess like everyone else, and it’s too bad we aren’t as smart as they are in realizing there are other candidates. I’ve seen comments where they wonder if people even know there are 2 other people to vote for, Um, no. No one but you has heard of Johnson and Stein. I’m glad they are still voting, but the fact that they realize how awful Trump is and talk constantly about how they would never want him as President, but still won’t vote for Hillary Clinton is frustrating.

And if you pay attention, you can learn stuff.

I have a moderately mixed group of friends, including some people who have been violently pro-Trump and/or anti-Hillary in the past. So far, I have 35 likes, 3 shares, 11 positive comments and zero negative comments. Since the Trump people have been pretty vocal before, that’s not what I expected. I’m wondering if they’re crawling back into their holes.

All this stuff tumbled out — Ford is a “problem solver” but the sneering elite media dump on him, he showed those unions, he’s not all politically correct, etc. There was an emotional fury to it that made it clear that this wasn’t really about Ford, but Ford was a symbol of something darker,…

    White male Trump support has been analyzed to death this election cycle. What’s the deal with white women without a college degree? What’s the beef, especially considering the clear misogyny in much of Trump’s utterances? There was a Maddow segment about a small rally of Women for Trump outside the DC RNC headquarters, and while Maddow was snarkiing big time on these people, there was nothing devoted to hearing them explain why they were clinging to The Donald.

    The other breakdowns which bear some scrutiny are younger vs older white women, and married vs single white women.

    The group of law makers who are staying on the bandwagon are deplorable.

    Maine Gov. Paul LePage (R) praised Donald Trump as a leader who would “show some authoritarian power” on Tuesday, even as he slammed President Barack Obama as an “autocrat.”

    “We need a Donald Trump to show some authoritarian power in our country and bring back the rule of law,” LePage said in an interview with Maine radio station WVOM.

    He went on to compare Trump to Obama, decrying the President as “an autocrat” who ignores Congress and “just does it on his own.”……..

    LePage was seemingly unconcerned by Trump’s comments about forcing himself on women in a 2005 video that resurfaced last week, but conceded that Trump is not the “ideal guy I’d want my daughter going after.”

    Lauren LePage, the Maine governor’s daughter, was hired in August by the Trump campaign as state coalitions director.

The biggest chunk they lose is married white women, again because most vote with their husbands, we tend to get the older and younger white women who tend to be more dependent on government services and don’t focus as much on taxes as the group in the middle.

    Trump has pretty much become become “Lonesome” Rhodes from the end of A Face in the Crowd, with Clinton as Marcia Jeffires.

    the rule of law

    I would be in favor of a contitutional amendment banning all conservatives from using this phrase ever again. And yes I know that’s contradictory, but if I never hear another ringer saying the rule of law or the constitution, it’ll be too soon.

    Elizabeth Warren’s Wall Street Watchdog Ruled Unconstitutional In Current Form

    The appeals court decision won’t necessarily doom the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau.

    The majority opinion was written by Bush(41) and Bush(43) appointees.

    @redshirt: Eh, I don’t really like the frequent exclamations that any gays, POC, immigrants, etc, who support Trump are Doing It Wrong. You’re basically demanding that these individuals identify primarily as part of a particular group and behave as stereotypical members of that group.

    Just because someone is gay or a POC or both doesn’t preclude that person from also being a rich asshole, a religious fundamentalist asshole, a gun-loving asshole, or a Randian asshole. The fallacy of stereotypes is expecting individuals to conform to the (perceived) average, and denying their ability to vary and make choices on their own.

    Well, I might say that anyone who is

    rich asshole, a religious fundamentalist asshole, a gun-loving asshole, or a Randian asshole

    is doing it wrong, regardless of race or gender.

    I think Pu$$yGate came out on Friday. So I would assume the next one will be Friday. Not sure the rationale. I assumed Friday was the day to dump news you didn’t want people talking about.

    Normally. But in a situation like this, news stations went on high alert and kept up round the clock coverage through the weekend which put those having to respond on the defensive and possibly slowly timed because it was the weekend.

    You have to wonder how it’s possible that even 28% of women still support him, although 28% is pretty close to 27%…

    Also, I love that I can say “him” in this election because we have a choice of a “him” and a “her.”

    I do enjoy looking at that graphic and seeing that both Gary Johnson and Dr. Jill are at a cool 0% with women.
    It soothes the soul. At least the ladies understand what’s at stake.
