    Operation Demoralize Is in Full Swing

    Operation Demoralize Is in Full Swing

    A self-fulfilling narrative.

    This race is too close to call.

    A shift in any state could change the outcome. The Real Clear Politics No-Toss Ups map (Featured Image) has Hillary winning by a few electoral points.

    She could win by a few, lose by a few, or win by a lot. It’s that volatile.

    Overall, she’s up about 3% in national polls. You can’t ignore that. I’d rather be up 3 than down 3 any day.

    It’s not a question of “unskew” or any of the other things we heard in 2012.

    It’s just a matter that there are still so many toss-up states, as this RCP chart shows:

    But to to read the headlines, it’s over. Trump is done. Turn out the lights, write the obituaries, the election is history.

    This is the same tactic always used. Here is what I wrote in 2012, Operation Demoralize is working just as planned:

    It’s November 7.  Barack Obama has won.  The Republican presidential strategy has failed.  The media is jubilant.  The right-blogosphere is going through a serious introspection.  The left-blogosphere is dancing on our graves and shoving it down our throats.  Four years of fighting the Obama agenda was for nothing.

    Oh, I’m sorry.  Let me correct that.  It’s September 9, not November 7.  The rest of the paragraph above can remain as originally written.

    Operation Demoralize is working just as planned.

    While Obama did go on to win, the media narrative that the race was over in early September was a self-fulfilling narrative.

    I think Hillary is the favorite going into Election Day because the electoral map favors Democrats. But don’t think that the premature celebrations are honest or legitimate – they are just narratives intended to demoralize Trump voters.

    There’s a thoughtful read over at American Thinker by Tom Trinko entitled “From One #NeverTrump to Another.”

    I find it sad that one of the contributors here is a founding member of the demoralization crew. (No, I’m not talking about Kemberlee.)

    Trump will win Colorado, NC & Ohio.

    It will be a nail biter for FL & MI.

    Unfortunately, PA will remain blue as will NV.

    If Trump wins FL & MI, say hello to Mr. President.

    If not, it’s Madam President.

    Whelp, the operation demoralize I’ve been subjected to for about eighteen months is over.

    I voted, and voted my conscience.

    Suck it, T-rump sucking cultist bullies…!!!

    Finally remembered what I was thinking about this morning….. the one thing the media has been desperately trying to accomplish was to get Trump to declare himself a loser or make pledges for when he’s a loser. Anything they could think of to get Trump to say “when I lose”…. once that phrase crossed his lips they could begin selling the idea of Trump losing to his supporters.

    But anyone who has ever watched Trump realizes he’s the kind of guy who will go down fighting until the very last minute. He has never once uttered a single word of forfeit to the opposition no matter how tightly pressed.

    On the other hand, Hillary has never been asked to posit on the potential she might lose, in fact, she has been told she will win long before the first candidate ever officially filed for the race. Her followers don’t believe she can lose because they’ve been told she can’t lose.

    Just some pondering on the head games we’ve been watching.
