I identify the middle as anything other than hardcore base for either side - YMMV

... for a much larger middle that expressed palpable disdain for the two choices . ..


The disdain was for business as usual/feeling constantly preached to/having their values challenged in every arena.

Hence Trump.

See the avatar I've chosen and tell me the disdain was all one sided.

Bias.  The BBC looks at a Trump voter and thinks that if they were decent people, they'd vote for someone else, so they must be bad people.  And where are these awful people getting their information from.?  Well, not the BBC obviously or they'd have voted for Hillary, who was a woman, you know.

Having not seen the article I can't say if I draw the same conclusion you have, but that aside there is some truth to your statement about decency and voting for someone else.

The hardcore bases were bookends for a much larger middle that expressed palpable disdain for the two choices . I count myself among that crowd.

The BBC has an article on its news site called something like  "Where do Trump voters get their news from."    They'd never have dreamed of asking that question of Clinton or Obama voters. 

That may be true, but again does that point to bias, or calling the spade a spade?

Whatever one thought of Clinton or Obama, I don't think anyone can say they went out of the way to create the deep divisions that is clearly a hallmark of this president. I will even throw in both Bush's to even the playing field.

Now, I'm not an especially big fan of Trump either as a person or as the POTUS. But there is an inherent and unspoken bias in this. The very existence of this program, in and of itself, sends a message. It says that the mere fact of a Trump presidency is so unusual, so aberrant, that an entire 14 week radio series is required in order to explain it. In other words, it tends to de-normalize the idea that Donald Trump is president, as compared to literally every other US president since 1919/20/21, the approximate date at which broadcast radio began (depending upon what you accept as meeting the definition of "broadcast radio.") This interpretation harkens to the cries of SJWs who warn us not to "normalize the idea of President Trump." At this point, I'm not even sure that this concept has a cogent meaning anymore.

Bias, or acknowledging the reality of the times?

We could stick 7 billion people in Texas with 1,000sqft apiece before building a second floor.

Heaven help the guy in charge of the sewer system

lets be clear...even if the russian story was true your ok with that?   I'm not asking whether you believe it or not...i get its a attempt to smear him theory(maybe true)

but even if it was true he took russian aid that's not enough for you to consider regretting voting for a president compromised by a putin regime?

Yes, I'm okay with that.  The alternative (status quo) was just too repulsive.

I frequent other chat sites where this sentiment is commonly expressed.

Even more mind-boggling are the one agenda types who could care less if Trump ran the country into the ground as long as he delivered on that one campaign promise.

Quote
Representative Eric Swalwell of California, the lead Democrat on the C.I.A. subcommittee of the House Intelligence Committee, was blunt: “For the sake of our nation’s future, our intelligence and law enforcement community must determine whether Donald Trump’s loyalties lie with us or with the Russians.”

Well, there's a bash for ya.

bit extraordinary thing to say about an incumbent prez,



That's hardly extraordinary after 8 years of Birther / Muslim agent

Anyone here thinks removing the DNI and Chairman of the JCS from the principals lists of the National Security Council is a good idea?

Anyone here thinks adding Steve Bannon to that list is a better idea?

More than the word of unnamed CIA officials.

So you would prefer we reveal our methods of intelligence gathering just to satisfy the skeptics among us?

With regards to 'unproven' what exactly should we the public expect to see as proof?

Greatest thing since sliced bread?  Naw, simply better than handing the country over to jihadists. If those are you options, which one do you prefer?

(cough) Egypt (cough)

You are going to make a bet of $10,000.

I have a deck of cards in my hand. It's a standard 52 card deck. For the purpose of this bet I have removed all of the face cards, JQK. An ace still counts as a 1. So there are now 40 cards remaining.

I have shuffled the cards and have the cards in my hand. What I am going to do now is place the first three cards face down. I will then reveal the next card in the deck.

Your bet is to predict the next card. You may say even or odd. Two weeks from now I will reveal the top card, and if the card matches your prediction, YOU WIN!

No, you don't get to touch the deck or see the cards. I've shuffled it, and I'm sure you will trust that both the cards and the shuffle have been fair and impartial.

However what I need to know right now is, will you respect the outcome of the card I reveal? I need you to make a commitment now.

The problem with your analogy is that both candidates had already made that commitment, not once, but twice.

Once with the federal election commission, and again when they accepted the nomination for their respective parties.

In a way this is not at all surprising. Trump is a narcissist through and through, and he simply can't, or won't, see he alone is the reason his candidacy is circling the bowl.
