9th NC PATCON June 1 - June 6th 2016

Trump is the warning shot. He’s the food riots before the revolution.

Via David

One of the more irritating things about the current election is the obtuseness of the media, particularly the so-called conservative media. They insist on assigning motives to Trump voters that are at odds with observable reality. For months now the official narrative has been that Trump is powered by toothless hillbillies, high on meth and anger at the dusky fellows. Voting Trump is how these losers are lashing out in anger, always in anger. Never mind that the data says the opposite.

The narrative, coincidentally, always speaks to the wonderfulness of conservative media. Similarly, they tar Trump with every offense to decency, even though he is often saying the things these same conservatives used to say a decade or two ago. According to the modern conservative, anyone holding the opinions common a few decades ago is a monster. Hilariously, Trump’s lack of a political ambition is held against him by conservatives. Again, the critique is always about the critic in these cases.

Political science professor: Odds of Trump winning 97-99%. His statistical model has correctly predicted every election for 104 years

Via John "Professor Helmut Norpoth's "Primary Model" has been entirely predictive of presidential winners over an extended number of elections.

Here, in this short video from back in February of this year, he was on the Fox News 'curvy couch' forecasting a November presidential win for Donald a time when nearly all 17 GOP candidates were still in the race.  So for Norpoth's model, so far, so good........only 6 months more to know for sure if history will repeat.nly 6 months more to know for sure if history will repeat."
