Post Inside the Trump Bunker, With Days to Go

Despite Trump’s claim that he doesn’t believe the polls, his San Antonio research team spends $100,000 a week on surveys (apart from polls commissioned out of Trump Tower) and has sophisticated models that run daily simulations of the election. The results mirror those of the more reliable public forecasters—in other words, Trump’s staff knows he’s losing. Badly. “Nate Silver’s results have been similar to ours,” says Parscale, referring to the polling analyst and his predictions at FiveThirtyEight, “except they lag by a week or two because he’s relying on public polls.” The campaign knows who it must reach and is still executing its strategy despite the public turmoil: It’s identified 13.5 million voters in 16 battleground states whom it considers persuadable, although the number of voters shrinks daily as they make up their minds.
Inside the Trump Bunker, With 12 Days to Go - Bloomberg

Trump is conning you guys down to the finish line he already knows he'll reach second...



To put this in perspective, 2012's voter turnout was about 126 million.
Trump's got to swing OVER 10% of the voters to his side in under a week in a half so he can win...
His camp knows this.

Nate Silver's site who Trump's campaign references above...

They currently give Hillary an 81.6% chance of winning.

(It's somewhat ironic that Trump's shot at winning is very close to those for a Russian Roulette player's chances for dying...)

While Hillary is like putting a shotgun in your mouth and pulling the trigger.

Predictable attempted derailment post #1...
Your comment has absolutely nothing to do with the fact that Trump's camp KNOWS they are losing (and badly) and yet they refuse to be honest and admit it...
Instead, even know they know they need to swing about 10% over the overall voters in a select few states, they run with lies that it's "rigged"...

The odds of picking an empty chamber in RR is 5 in 6.

I'll take those odds in any election.

Nah, I just don't care who wins this time. It's the same candidate with different letters after their name.
