The guy who systematically underpolled the swing states?

He must really want to fail at something.

Step 1: Country elects a sociopath as president.
Step 2: Mark Zuckerberg says "I'M GONNA MAKE IT AFTER ALLLLLLLLL."

We already got a narcissistic billionaire President, thanks.

I'd stay away from any of Hilary's campaign staff. They blew 2008. They blew 2016. They suck.
 
2017-08-03 08:32:16 PM  
Well I sure hope it wasn't for taking campaign polls.
 
2017-08-03 08:33:35 PM  
Relax guys, this just means FB's new AI will be as weak and ineffectual as the HRC campaign was

Oh god, fark off Zuckster.

Listen, if you want to get involved, do it with your pocket book.  Help good politicians, but most importantly throw a lot of money into voter registration efforts and GOTV efforts.

This is honestly the only thing that makes sense.  Facebook should already be able to determine who's going to win the next 6 elections.

Scorpitron is reduced to a thin red paste: I'd stay away from any of Hilary's campaign staff. They blew 2008. They blew 2016. They suck.


Those same people ran the 2010 and 2014 elections, where the Democratic Party's strategy was "STAY AWAY FROM OBAMA!!!"

"Don't let Obama accomplish anything!" had been the GOP's strategy since January 20, 2009. By the 2010 election, the Democratic Party decided to make that their strategy, too.

Him and everybody else, right?  Perhaps something else happened that made the polls appear off.  Remember, the polls that failed to predict Clinton's defeat were within respective confidence intervals for all other candidates.

Perhaps the pollsters were hasty... We can call it the Rush-In effect.

We already had polls showing Zuckerberg is the one person who can lose to Trump out of a bunch of prospective candidates.

You know that Clinton had most of Obama's people right?  It's comical how much you pretend that 2010 and 2014 was all Clinton people.

If this is the first of his political decisions he's going to make a garbage candidate
 
2017-08-03 08:42:09 PM  
Hell, hire Mook too, so he can believe the polling data over the people on the ground in the swing states. What's the worst that could happen?

He polled fine. Machines are extremely suspect. Exit polls were extremely close to the polling he ran.

Don't blame the pollster he didn't make a pact with Russia.

Tim Kaine (VP nominee) and Debbie Wasserman Schultz (DNC chair turned "honorary campaign co-chair") were the DNC chairs during those elections.

In both elections, the party ran away from Obama and their work, particularly the ACA, and allowed the neocons to spin the narratives that they all were supposedly terrible for the country.

DWS stabbed Clinton in the back in 2008 to support Obama, he's as much to blame as her.

DWS wasn't invlolved at all in Clinton's campaign, the ceremonial role was to get her to resign to appease the Sanders supporters who swallowed Russian propaganda like good little puppets.
 
2017-08-03 08:49:41 PM  
Run, Zuck, run. How else will I learn about quaint American establishments that all people already know about, like truck stops. Maybe next, how parking meters work. Or, how to order a sandwich at Subway.

Business tycoons don't belong anywhere near the government. If anything, his timing is terrible. He's just going to be labeled Trump 2.0

Not really no.  Too many were looking at national polls, and it lead to overlooking state polls in the news.  Ohio was shown as being Trump leaning for a couple of weeks before the final election, and Clinton's state offices in Michigan and Wisconsin had been warning that they weren't safe states either.

If the Zuck gets the Dem nomination in 2020, you're going to get what you deserve.

I cannot vote for a man who's entire fortune is based on the selling of the personal information of myself and all of my loved ones.

You think gov't intrusion into your life is bad now, wait until the one man that understand how to use it the way he does is Predisent.

Zuck doesn't have dementia/stupidity/whatever the fark is wrong with Donnie.  I mean, he'd still be a terrible president, don't get me wrong.  My point is that most of the people you encounter in a given day, even shiatty drivers, would be better presidents than Donnie.

Perhaps he'll run against Trump for the Republican Primary.

THAT WOULD BE LULZWORTHY

Bill Clinton tried warning the staff that ignoring white rural and working-class voters would backfire, but he was ignored.

Hey it's not my fault they were dumb enough to not question why Wiki Leaks was working with Trump while Assange was in Russia.

The leak happened to distract from Trump's grab em by the pussy tape.  It was painfully obvious to some people.

Neither are they, they want to ignore any of Obama's faults and just blame it all on the mean old Clinton controlled DNC fantasy they have in their head.

They just biatch and whine and refuse to do the work and attack anyone who does as shill or establishment.

I'm disparaging them because they are delusional, they ignore any fault of Obama for the losses suffered since 2008 and try to just pin it on Clinton.  I'm not saying Clinton and the DNC don't share some of the blame but you can't just absolve Obama because you like him.

Also I messed up the leaks I swapped the dates with the DNC leak and the Podesta leak and immediately apologized for it, I'm not spreading misinformation.
