Scott Adams endorses Trump

He even predicts a Trumpslide:
I endorse Donald Trump for President of the United States because I oppose bullying in all its forms.

I don’t defend Trump’s personal life. Neither Trump nor Clinton are role models for our children. Let’s call that a tie, at worst.

The bullies are welcome to drown in their own bile while those of us who want a better world do what we’ve been doing for hundreds of years: Work to make it better while others complain about how we’re doing it.

Today I put Trump’s odds of winning in a landslide back to 98%. Remember, I told you a few weeks ago that Trump couldn’t win unless “something changed.”

Something just changed.
Nice to see Scott coming back around again. While I wouldn't go so far as to say that I see concrete signs of a Trumpslide, much less a 98 percent certainty of it, I still think he is going to win, and win more comfortably than anyone would suspect.

I don't see any desperation from Trump or the people around him. I see increasing desperation from the people around Hillary... and see virtually nothing of Hillary herself.

Yes, we all know what the polls say. We'll see. In any event, do what you believe to be right regardless of what everyone else is doing, or as more often the case, saying they are doing.

Adams is angry about simultaneous, similar-sounding hit pieces being published about him on Huffington Post, Salon, and Daily Kos. Note that on the same day, what was clearly SUPPOSED to be a hit piece on Mike Cernovich was also published in The New Yorker.

I keep saying, in a FAIR election, there's no question. But, what's going to happen in reality with all the rigging? Can they rig it enough to win?

Anonymous Undocumented Civilizationalist October 25, 2016 1:05 PM  

For the first time since 2006, my hubby and I will vote in an election here in the Buckeye state. We will stand in line as long as it takes this Friday to vote for Trump. Not voting for the quisling Senator Portman though, but we will vote for the Republican Congressman Renacci.

Trump will win Ohio. I have 100% confidence in that.

And we are both requesting paper ballots instead of using the machines, as that is allowed in OH. Don't trust the machines so much.

Anonymous DissidentRight October 25, 2016 1:08 PM  

They are panicking because they can't rig it enough to win.

And they are right to be afraid that a Trump victory is not something we will put to waste.

Its not so much the election that counts for everything it is the attitude the Trump voters have, not so much with the nice white woman shtick of competing to see who is the nicest and kindest anymore. I think Michael Moore has had some of the best commentary with his "Biggest fuck you in history" comment.

Keep in mind the tracking polls today are Clintoon +1, so at least preference cascade for Trump has been delayed a little bit.

My WAG is that this is an election for the Ds that is part off year election and part 2008 turnout to yield about where Obama got to in 2012 roughly 65 million votes which Trump to beat on a nationwide popular vote count has to do better than GWB's 2004 high water mark of 62 million votes. Has a populist Republican made 3 + million new GOP voters?

On a positive note Pence draws more votes to his ticket than Kaine of the 30 person rally.

@15 Mr. MantraMan
Evidence from Florida indicates that Democrats are less likely to actually get off their duffs and vote, or mail in the ballots they order. This is exactly why the Clinton machine is relying as much as it can on its GOTV mechanisms. The problem with those is that they tend to peak early as they scoop up the most enthusiastic democrats and get them to the polls early, whereas self-motivated voters vote at a steadier rate.

#18 Kind of has me stumped because in 2000 Gore collected 51 million votes and still lost, but in 4 years time Bush upped his vote total to the GOPe high water mark of 62 million and beat the Stiff from Vietnam. Then from 2000 to 2008 the D party found 18+ million new votes to initiate the new Thousand Year Reich of Democratic Party rule so conventional wisdom has it that the new Brown Power wave has finally landed.

But in good news, reading a Drudge blurb somehow in OH they have information on how many early ballots go out to black voters and it is down 10%, OK I'll take that.

PS a guess on 2004 GOP votes being basically the last election that WWII generation was aware enough to vote in numbers.

His "endorsement" of Johnson because "Johnson only touches himself" or his endorsement of Hillary "for his own personal safety" (although that could actually be true after San Jose) are backhanded endorsements meant to mock both candidates.

Clinton gets 272 EV if we only count states in which she is 5% ahead. This might be inflated by polling, but there is still no reasonable EV path for Trump. Will he flip Virginia? Colorado? I just don't see it.

@21, there's no way in hell that Adams is a Gamma. Exhibit A: his girlfriend, Kristina Basham. Gammas don't get girls like that, let alone when there's an age difference of about 25 years. Exhibit B: his attacks on his detractors on his blog and on Twitter. This is a man who is not only not afraid of conflict, he relishes it. He considers it fuel. I'd peg him as a Sigma for his lack of desire to join, among other things, but Gamma he is not.

"Romney Ohio rally draws 20,000 - 30,000"! "Obama crowds tiny!" "Romney will win Ohio!" "Romney landslide coming!" "Polls show Romney leading!"

All the same stuff I'm hearing now, and that was 5 days before the election. Romney's loss was all the more shocking because I so totally believed the optimistic predictions just a few days before. I'm not getting my party hats out just yet; I'll believe it when I see it.

The only thing which really needs to be carefully documented is the amount of voter fraud being perpetrated. Trump voters may be coming out in record numbers, but there is an endless amount of dead voters and "found" ballot boxes for the Dems. I would almost advocate for armed militias to surround polling stations after the polls close, and to ensure cars with "found" boxes of ballots cannot deliver their tainted cargos.

I knew a sociopath in university who was failing a class and was about to lose her volleyball scholarship, so she broke into the professor's office and changed her grade (this was in olden times when profs recorded grades on paper). She probably would've gotten away with it if she hadn't changed it from an F to an A. If she'd changed it to a C-, probably no one would've noticed. But even in her desperation, she couldn't overcome her foolishness, overconfidence, and contempt for those she was trying to deceive.

The desperate people manipulating the poll data for Hillary must be similarly foolish, overconfident, and contemptuous, because, like this girl's final grade, the poll numbers simply aren't believable. If they had Hillary ahead by a slim margin, then maybe no one would question the polls. But the disparity between what the numbers say and what people are observing with their own senses is simply too large to ignore.

There is no energy for Hillary. None. I work in academia, and eight years ago, the enthusiasm for Obama was palpable. I'd guess 30% of cars on campus had Obama stickers, there were Obama signs in office windows, and everyone had positive things to say about him. This election, I've seen a grand total of three (3) Hillary stickers + zero signs on a campus with over 60,000 people. Nobody's talking about Hillary. The only colleagues I know who admit they support Hillary are a smattering of women in their 30s and 40s, and yet what do they talk about? Trump. If this very liberal campus is a barometer for leftist enthusiasm, I just don't see how Hillary can win without serious, banana-republic-level cheating.

Blogger Wanda Sherratt October 25, 2016 3:24 PM  

@66 - " Trump voters may be coming out in record numbers, but there is an endless amount of dead voters and "found" ballot boxes for the Dems. "

That has GOT to be stopped. Until now, it's gone on, but the Republicans thought it was more becoming to shrug, shake their heads ruefully, and treat it as a "boys will be boys" bit of mischief. I hope that even if Trump loses, he won't passively accept being robbed, and why should he? I hope he'd do what Peter Thiel did to Buzzfeed, and drag every lowlife involved into court and ruin them.

That's what's been missing up until now. The Republicans knew the corruption came from the top, but they acted as if there was just nothing they could do. Well, it's isn't Hillary Clinton personally stuffing those ballot boxes. This corruption train runs on thousands of little wheels. The foot soldiers who do the dirty work are the weakest link. They can't defend themselves against a determined adversary, and the Democrats are notorious for throwing their people under the bus. Defending thousands of lawsuits would hurt them, if they even had the inclination to do so, which they don't. Once it's no longer fun and games for the peons, once they understand that they'll lose everything they own and go to jail, the Dems will find their train stuttering to a halt. Few will be willing to risk that much for the party, especially once they know they'll be entirely on their own.

@68: I live in a pretty conservative area, but the ratio of Trump to Clinton yard signs is staggering - at least 50:1. I concur that there is no enthusiasm whatsoever for Clinton, and a fair number of people who are ready to crawl through broken glass to vote for Trump (whether in support of him or opposition to Clinton is another question).

@69: I think Trump's Plan B is to sue. If the margin of loss in a given state is within the margin of fraud, drag it into the courts. At a minimum, it gets the fraud out into the open. With any luck, it'll throw the Presidential election into the House. Trump will win that easily, voting is by state, not individual member.

"VD: You clearly know nothing of human socio-sexuality. It doesn't matter how rich or famous he is. A Gamma cannot score or keep a woman who looks like that.

Plenty of non-whores are narcissistic. All women are exhibitionist by male standards.

What is Gamma is your instinctive bitterness at the sight of a pretty girl."

Vox, i love your blog and have for a long time, but I find it very frustrating when you go outside your areas of expertise to areas of competence. The "instinctive bitterness" is so far off the mark I don't know how to respond, so I won't.

You seem to imply I was arguing against the poster's gamma/etc classification, I WASN'T. It mostly wasn't even directed at Scott Adams but the girl, and i agree no matter how rich or famous one wouldn't "keep" (no idea about details of the relationship) a girl like that if "gamma", sure.

I also didn't mean whore in the literal sense which I thought was obvious as obviously he's not dating a literal whore (sheesh), I could replace it with "gold/status digger" or "red flags deluxe" or some variant. The point was to bring a bit of the physical attractiveness aspect down to earth a bit - think smokeshow attractive girls crawling all over LA with crap jobs and no value beyond looks who are dime a dozen to celebrities or people connected to entertainment, or as my one friend puts it "if you just have a real job". An Instagram with nearly 100% of the pics like that, followed by millions of random men, that's a HUGE red flag, but everyone has different criteria and goals for relationships.

I apologize if I was offensive, I'm highly critical of girls I date, and not looking beyond the surface is a pet peeve as I have friends in destructive relationships with girls they only stay with I strongly suspect because they're physically attractive, and this presented an opportunity to express that.

If Scott really was a Gamma, I don't think he would have dared endorse Trump the way he just did for fear of losing Kristina, even if he were able to get past the usual emotional hatred of Alphas that most Gammas seem to have.

The sociosexual case history of Scott Adams here is like the complete reverse of Ted Cruz's case. It's amazing.

I've always taken this statement of Darth Soros very ominously. It would suggest that after this election, the progs aren't going to pretend any more to play along with having a representative republic, but yank the mask off and establish a new Soviet Union in the U.S. by force.

It would explain all the "FEMA" camps and the massive Fedgov purchases of ammo.

Anyway... I have no idea what their plan is but I get the feeling things are about to get very real regardless.

The disconnect between what I see and hear with my own eyes and ears, and poll numbers and mainstream commentary, is mind blowing.

Since most trump supporters will not accept the legitimacy of her election, I think it might be time to organize plans for Nov 9th in case our worst fears are confirmed.

The trump campaign has gotta be thinking about this a lot...

They going to gun down millions of us? The military and police seem to overwhelmingly support trump, from what I can tell even they might not respect the election as legitimate.

Best case scenario as has been suggested polls tighten to cover tracks and we drink the salty tears resulting from the trumpslide. Worst case... Seems more of those than I'd like.

No worries, VFM #7634, although I do think part of your judgment came from misreading his "I endorse Hillary for reasons of personal safety" as cowardice. Think about it: an actual coward attempts to hide his fear. He wouldn't state it in public. Further, by framing it that way, Adams got people to pay attention early on to the violent tendencies of pro-Hillary people. That focus is a persuasion trick, as was the constant repetition of that position when he reminded people that he endorsed Clinton for his personal safety. He sent the message pretty clearly that he didn't support Hillary and that there was something wrong with her supporters. He's been at this a while.

The polls are showing a very serious trend against what I see locally, in two of the supposed critical 17 swing counties (Bucks and Montgomery, PA). Here the trend seems to be towards Trump with all the folks I know, but the polls indicate otherwise. I have seen a couple of folks who were on the edge decide that had to pull the Trump lever based on Hillary's corruption. I have seen no one trend to Hillary. By the same token I have seen no Hillary supporters defect.

The honest polls (LA, IBD, PPD, Rasmussen) all moving from +1~2 Trump to +1~2 Hillary over the past 4 days has me worried. That said the polling does not indicate any transfer of democrats over to Trump, and here in PA there is most certainly that effect, which makes me wonder if the working class folks are somehow not being polled.

There is an indication of that as the few polls I have seen have the college educated as around 50 % of the sample, where as the electorate at large as something closer to 29 % college degrees. if you include the black percentages and Hispanic percentages (20 and 15 % respectively) it means that the whites electorate being polled is around 55 % college degreed, or ~2X the actual percentage. As such a movement in the blue collar populace might be missed.

Frankly I do not know nor do I think anyone will know how this shakes out. I do know those of us that like Trump are not going to miss voting on the 8th.

OpenID meistergedanken October 25, 2016 4:35 PM  

A report from the field: on Saturday the Wife and I were about to sit down for brunch when a knock summoned me to the front door. My wrath was checked and my ire mollified when on my porch I saw two older gentlemen wearing Trump/Pence T-shirts going door to door in the neighborhood. One of the men apologized for interrupting our meal and said he merely wanted to pose three questions to me, to which I readily agreed.

“First, do you plan on supporting Trump, Clinton or some other candidate on election day?”
I told him that I – and my wife – would be gladly casting our ballot for Trump in November. I got pleasant smiles in return.
“Do you want a Trump sign to put in your yard?”
I said no, because I didn’t want to deal with the very real possibility of ensuing theft and/or vandalism. The men nodded grimly, and one of them said, ”I don’t blame you. We’ve seen a lot of that. I would say for every person that accepts a Trump sign there are 9 Trump voters who don’t.”
This shouldn’t have surprised me, but the magnitude of the ratio did, a little. I reside in an affluent suburb in a district that has had Republican representation in Congress for as long as I’ve lived here (over ten years), and only 10% of self-declared Trump voters are putting up signs, such is the oppressive shadow upon the land. But you just KNOW that every single Hillary supporter is proudly defiling their own front lawns.

Finally, he asked if I was going to be supporting Rob Portman in his bid for reelection to the Senate (I live in Ohio).
“Hell no,” I replied vociferously, “that man is a God-damned traitor. He should learn how to back his party’s nominee and he needs to learn his lesson!” (Portman is one of those arch-cucks who recently and publicly rescinded his endorsement of Trump.) One of the men sighed, the other put down his head a little and smiled sadly. “Yeah, I totally get that. I understand where you’re coming from. Well, thanks for your time and have a great day.”

It was an illuminating exchange, for both of us. Make of this what you will.

RCP has the Electoral College spread now +146 in Clinton's favor, up from +92 last week.

But, polls, rigging, magic, etc., etc.

Trump's rallies mean nothing beyond the 20,000 plus Trump who enjoy them at any given moment. They're essentially post-election victory parties being thrown before the election.

Either Trump is going to lose in a landslide, or his path to victory is deeply hidden among at least three or four (or more) crucial constituencies.

1. As someone mentioned here the other day, blacks who realize open immigration torpedoed their cousin's roofing business and family dreams but can't afford being caught speaking kindly of the "racist" Trump.

2. Republicans who know both that the bread is buttered on the side of dissing Trump and that the ballot is secret.

3. These guys, maaaan.

4. Millennials who will furiously vote the hell in favor of Hillary on Facebook and Twitter (and a VP vote is just like a Twitter vote, so vote hard!).

The thing is, these four constituencies (and there may be more) are distributed broadly enough across enough states while not overlapping all that much internally that tipping the state then tips the EC which then takes the brass ring. We hope.

But the Democrats aren't scared of shit. They've got the organization, the money, the media, and most of the Internet giants in their pocket. They've already got as close to a Soviet state lock as is possible in America. Moreover, no one's rigging anything (unless you're talking turncoats on Trump's side: they're already doing it all out in the open, proudly.

So Trump is already going to lose bigly, or a diverse army of invisibles is going to seep out at the last minute and save his ass. Personally, I think it's a tossup, but I sleep better hoping for the latter.

So what can we actually do? Vote for Trump and drag every living body we can to the polls with us. Crush a caffeine tab in Granny's tea and drag her ass off the oxygen machine to the polls as well; her post-election hospitalization will cost you less than Hillary's policies.

Then do this. Pull your Madras shorts up to your navel and your black socks in sandals up to mid-calf and congratulate every young person you can reach on their generational fait accompli with Hillary and that old folks like you never had a chance. Admit that they overran you with their tsunami of irresistible wonderfulness, that everyone knows it's already over, and that, now that they've already won, maybe they'll make the world a better place. "Now that Hillary's already won, what do you hope she does first, (Insipid Little Fruitcake)?"

Finally, go home, drink heavily, and pray. He just might win still.

I'm not really convinced that this sort of thing is doable. Even Nate Silver acknowledges that if the election were fair, Trump would actually have a slight advantage over Hillary in the EC.

Although I suppose it could be engineered that way by blatant, obvious vote-fraud with the voting machines he owns.

Another reason why we all have to back up Trump on this vote fraud issue.

Blogger Cail Corishev October 25, 2016 4:44 PM  

If this very liberal campus is a barometer for leftist enthusiasm, I just don't see how Hillary can win without serious, banana-republic-level cheating.

The tacit assumption seems to be that Democrats don't need enthusiasm, that their voters will show up and vote to protect their welfare/subsidy/government paycheck, or their access to abortion/drugs/sex, or generally to prevent whatever they've been taught the racist/sexist/homophobe Republicans would do to them. So it doesn't matter who's running, or whether they put signs in their yards or show up to rallies in numbers greater than dozens; they will show up faithfully and vote Democrat on election day.

Maybe that's true. I'm sure it's more true than it would be in a healthy, civilized society without so much of the population on the teat. But I still think lack of enthusiasm for the candidate will have some effect on turnout, and pollsters can't factor that in because no one's going to say, "Yeah, I usually vote, but this time I'll probably wake up that morning and decide to go over to Brad's apartment and get high instead." They have to assume that past voting performance predicts "likely voters" this time, until it doesn't.

Obama only won Philly and Pittsburg in PA, lost every other county but the graveyards had enough to take the state with over 100% of the census population showing up in some districts.

Not by a long shot. PA has a lot of suburban left-wingers, especially along the eastern border.

People out this way LOVE Hillary. They think she is the hippest, coolest grandma out there.

Her biggest strategic blunder this campaign was not picking Jon Stewart or Stephen Colbert to be her running mate.

O.T.
It seems that a small feminist petition has caused a Melbourne cinema to cave in to femoinist demands and cancel the screening of "The Red Pill" (a new documentary which exposes some of the excesses of feminism) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HK7n_XA40V8

@87 Federal ammo stockpiling can just as easily be explained by the closure of the last US lead smelter, of which a federal agency would have had advance notice.

Scott Adams an odd duck? Oh my, yes. He thinks affirmations may have gotten him the test score he needed to get into business school, that Trump's Wall should be a tourist attraction, and that we might be possibly be living in a computer simulation. He really is unique.

@83. My apologies, Vox, to you and the Dread Ilk. Although I have no problem believing that George Soros is arrogant and evil enough to say what the video has him saying, it appears I was the victim of the "ready, fire, aim" syndrome. I just learned that the video to which I posted a link is evidently fraudulent. I hope no one has been embarrassed as a result of my failure to check it out more thoroughly.

Living in a computer simulation makes sense. Recent years have obviously been coded by Java devs.

I believed, deep down, that a 40 state Trumpslide was coming until the Grab her in the Pussy thing. I think that broke his campaign (or perhaps it was the sight of so many Republicans publicly abandoning Trump that broke his campaign). I'm still shocked that THAT was the turning point. As if we didn't know Trump talked like that. But a switch was thrown somewhere, and I think Trump's been on his heels ever since. Which is damned sad. If he loses, I have no regrets. He did his best. It's the GOP I'll blame, even more than the media that outright colluded with the Clinton Campaign.

AFAICT the only thing's that's changed is that now Scott Adams in endorsing Trump. They've messed with the wrong person.

If that's really what he means than the hubris is high in this one.

Two things: 1) Hey Adams, stop with the (and neither do you) trope. While you've been drawing, some of us have been reading Rothbard, Mises, Woods, Sowell and other - so we DO KNOW what the best tax policy would be. 0%. Do your homework Adams. 2) The surprisingly fair New Yorker piece is reminiscent of the also fair piece written about Michael Savage years ago. Unbelievable that the New Yorker would do that - it must have been a mistake....

@44 "Any bets on how many news papers drop his cartoon for 'unrelated reasons?'"

Any bets on how many Alt Righters drop those news papers for dropping one of our allies? For very much named reasons?

I'm actually planning on writing all the down-the-line "R's" (whom I "had" to vote for, as that's about all there WERE on the Georgia ballot!) letting them know that, as an angry Alt Righter who only returned to voting (after 20 years!) *SPECIFICALLY* to get Trump into office, I AM once again interested in what they're doing; I will be paying close attention to their support for Trump's plans... and I suggest THEY SUPPORT HIM TOO! Pick a side; make sure it's the (Alt) RIGHT one! (Hey! We should have that on a tee shirt!)

As has been said here multiple times; this does NOT end on Nov 9th!

Vox has a secondary blog where he exclusively blogs about human socio-sexuality. You'd know that if you paid even the most cursory of attention

@137 "Federal ammo stockpiling can just as easily be explained by the closure of the last US lead smelter..."

Not applicable: most ammo makers have made clear that they do NOT use "new" lead, they use recycled lead -- and there is no shortage"

=================
https://www.nraila.org/articles/20131205/us-ammunition-industry-to-survive-closure-of-lead-smelter

According to the United States Geological Survey, lead usage in ammunition makes up only about three percent of lead consumption in the United States. Lead-acid batteries make up the vast majority of U.S. lead consumption, and these batteries are readily recycled. This recycled lead, which will still be able to be smelted in the United States at secondary smelters even after the Herculaneum smelter closes, is the type most often used by ammunition manufacturers.

Speculation about the effect of the Herculaneum smelter's closure has caused a number of ammunition manufacturers, including Sierra and Federal, to issue public statements on their ability to continue to source lead for ammunition production. ...
==================

So, go buy more ammo! Never enough!

That actually makes me kinda proud. I wouldn't have thought it was that much.

I love that Adams is calling out the Clinton campaign for bullying. After the first debate, my brother (a hard-core SJW) wrote that Trump was a bully because he kept interrupting Clinton. He says that "no one with a moral compass can vote for Trump."

This is why I predict that if Hillary wins and triggers CWII before WWIII (it would be a contest), the American versions of Anders Brevik wouldn't care about party identification, so every exclusive private club would become like the white male body: a socially acceptable locus of violence.

No, what objectively changed is that he got extensive material for a high-ground maneuver.

He might also have been pumping himself up for going against Godzilla (Dr. Robert Cialdini), as I believe to be the case; but that is a subjective perception.
