You just jealous because Donald trump is hilarious as fuck and you and all the other comedians are jealous because he comes up with new material in a split second. You made fun of the honorable President Zuma also because you were just mad about his comedic skills. Why are you such a hater Trevor? All the guy wanted to do was make America great again and entertain some people along the way. Now I have to settle for Loyiso, Rabinowitz, Riaad and a very very very jealous Trevor Noah. M.A.G.A forever!!! P.S I am not a fan of haters and gogo should have moerd you harder tokoloshi.

  • It's not that the polls are incorrect, it's that there are a ton of people lying. No one really wants to admit they're a trump supporter. The immediate assumption would be that they're unintelligent, racist, homophobic, etc., and who really wants to be perceived that way? The solution is to just lie.

  • We must acknowledge that a large portion of this country is avidly racist. 35-40% are openly so. Another 5-10% are closeted racist - they are outwardly not willing to say so. Racism is a major driving factor in their getting out to vote. Pollsters cannot get voting intentions correct when an open racist is on the ballot. Those 5-10% will not openly declare their racist intentions for voting, so they will lie to pollsters. Hence the polls will always undercount their vote when an open racist is on the ticket. The polls underestimated tRump support in 2016 and 2020. But they got 2018 correct. The overt racist Trump was not on the ballot in 2018, so the 5-10% did not feel compelled to lie.

  • Polls tell you how people say they are going to vote, not how their votes are counted. The USA doesn't meet minimum international standards for election integrity, like most third world countries. The polls worked until programable vote counting machines. Programmers blew the whistle on election stealing programs after an election was stolen, so the government rolled out more of those and electronic voting.

  • Friends, do you need wisdom? Seek it from the Source who alone can provide it-Father God. Wisdom is necessary as we decide what’s fair and moral, right and wrong. If we truly value wisdom, we can ask Yahweh (God), through Jesus Christ for a discerning heart. God may answer our request by helping us balance our needs and desires with the interests of others. He may also help us weigh short-term benefits against long-term (sometimes eternal) gains so we can honor Him in how we live. Our Lord is not only a perfectly wise judge, but He is also a personal counselor who is willing to give us godly wisdom in great amounts (James 1 : 5). Seek ultimate wisdom THIS VERY MOMENT by first understanding that you are a sinner in need of our Savior. Confess with your mouth and believe with your heart that Jesus Is Lord of your life. Welcome Yeshua (Jesus Christ) into your life. Receive grace by believing in Jesus Christ and what He did on the cross, His death, burial and resurrection for the sins of all mankind. You will then be justified in salvation and blessed abundantly with love. Your life will be forever changed! Dear one, please take a moment to pray the following prayer with me.....Dear Heavenly Father, I worship You as the true source of wisdom. Please show me how to make choices that bring honor to Your name. This I pray in the Mighty Mighty name of Your Son, Jesus Christ, Amen! May God bless you in the Glorious name of Jesus Christ our Lord and our Savior.❤️❤️❤️

  • Fear and aggression and how "The Polls Underestimated America's Far-Right popularity." 'Fear and aggression - dogmatism and intolerance': These psychological motives have shaped right-wing conservatism in America ever since the Civil War History News Network May 25, 2020 Among the various scholars writing on the topic since World War II, John Thomas Jost, a social psychologist, found agreement that an inclination to respect tradition in resisting change and to respect hierarchy in sustaining inequality are two key interrelated core conservative ideological characteristics. He found that several psychological motives increase the likelihood that people will manifest these ideological characteristics. These psychological motives include tendencies toward "fear and aggression . . ., dogmatism and intolerance of ambiguity . . ., uncertainty avoidance [including less openness to new experiences] . . ., need for cognitive closure . . ., need for structure . . ., and [support for] group-based dominance."

  • This is the situation in a nutshell. Trump says he is gonna get rid of the "bad guys". ... So, the "bad guys" use their control over Media to paint Donald J Trump as a bad man who hates on minorities. The people around the world who trust Media outlets lap it up and thus we get the following comments section and others like it. - (people leave heartfelt comments like (We know that the Donald is a bad bad man, because our 3rd arm [the tv] told us that he is, and therefore we and the whole world know he is a bad bad man, exactly like how they say so. It's so disheartening that the rest of these people in our country would vote for such a bad person, knowing full well, exactly what the tv has told us about him.) They did not tell us one time, or two times that he is a bad man, they told us a million times! And still, these people who share citizenship with us, go out boldly and in numbers, to vote for SUCH a man, I'm so scared. They did not tell us one time, or five times that He lies to us. They told us ten million times that every single word that he says is a lie, except for when he tells the truth and says something that paints him in a bad way, like, duh)

  • Love your show guys. However, when crapping on the pollsters (which, let's be honest, is something we all enjoy) I'd suggest waiting until all the votes are counted. When people were head shaking over the pop vote showing Trump at 50.4% it was just ridiculous.... fully half the country had polls still open. With 140m+ votes now counted, Biden has a roughly 4m vote lead in the popular vote. It could be 5m by Nov 12th when all mail in ballots will have been counted. The pollsters were still wrong about the senate and house wave, so the democrats have some soul searching to do. In the end, it looks like Biden will have somewhere between 290-300 electoral votes, with an outside chance at 310-315. Not the landslide those of us who despise Trump and everything he stands for (or, rather, doesn't...) wanted, but still a solid win. Two Georgia senate runoffs could (but not necessarily will) leave the senate more or less even (two independents). It's not what most democrats wanted. But it's still looking like a solid win.

  • The lesson for me is that white people love white supremacy too much to give it up. Honestly, we have known this fact for a long time but we still act that people will vote for their own self-interest. The second lesson is voter suppression needs to be tackled by the new administration as a priority. It's not fair that in some areas of the country that it's harder to vote especially after the Voter's Right Act was struck down by the Supreme Courts.

  • I never pay any attention to National Poll numbers in a Presidential Election, and never will. I have long understood the nature of how we elect a President, and so I knew it would be a huge mistake to only look at National Poll results which showed Biden with a lead over tRump, because such polls are always highly deceptive. Results from National Polls and Surveys are erroneous because who’s leading in the National Polls doesn’t matter in the General Election. The reason being is that by mandate of our Constitution we don't hold a “National” election to select our President. Elections for the presidency in the United States are held in each of the 50 States, in which a Nominee must win a configuration of States and their Electors to achieve a majority of the votes in the Electoral College. Thus, National Poll numbers are meaningless. As everyone should understand by now, you have to gain 270 Electoral College votes strategically garnered from the various States you win in order to become President in this country. And regardless of how we might deplore and abhor that fact, it is the only system in place and it is the one we are forced to abide by. It cannot be changed by anything less than a Constitutional Amendment, and that would be an EXTREMELY dangerous and difficult effort to attempt right now, given the current political environment. Thus, we’re stuck with it. That’s why the battleground swing States are absolutely vital to a Democratic presidential victory. Because you can have all the votes in all the Blue States that you want, with a huge lead of MILLIONS over your opponent in the popular vote and still LOSE the election. You have to win a State by State majority of votes in the Electoral College, not the national cumulative popular vote. So the only poll numbers that have any credence during a Presidential Election are the State by State numbers, and especially the battleground swing States. Those are the numbers we should always be looking at and paying attention to. The battleground swing States are where the Biden Campaign should have targeted its focus like a Star Wars Deathstar laser beam. Listen, EVERY PERSON alive in California, New York, Illinois, New Jersey and all the other "Blue States" in the nation could have voted for Biden.... EVERY SINGLE PERSON ALIVE..... .....and he would STILL lose this election if he didn't win enough of the battleground swing States to achieve a 270-vote majority of the Electoral College. The popular vote doesn't mean a thing in this election regardless of whether the leading margin is by 1 or 100 million. Because a massive “Blue Wave” landslide in “Blue” States only, won’t win the White House. Achieving the majority of the popular vote isn’t worth DOG CRAP. Hillary proved that by 3 million worthless votes in 2016. Biden could have 100 million more votes than tRump from all of the "Blue States" Hillary won or that he just won on Tuesday and still get his butt handed to him by tRump with the Electoral College tally. That is just how screwed up our system is for electing our President and there is not a doggone thing we can do about it any time soon, other than campaign hard, have a great voter registration and ground game in place, and work like honey bees to get out the vote in all of the battleground swing States. Because if Democrats doesn't win those swing States WE LOSE THE DARNED ELECTION regardless of the popular vote margin. So, it’s best to just IGNORE MISLEADING NATIONAL POLLS

    • Stop that Bernie Bros LIE. Nobody "forced" Biden on us. WE VOTED FOR HIM...and in overwhelming numbers. Bernie would NEVER have beaten Trump in the General Election. Bernie wasn't even able to produce the massive wave of "Youth" and "New" voters he promised that would carry him to victory in the Primaries. Plus he broke the 1st Rule in Democratic Presidential Politics, which is: You can't win the nomination without the Black Vote. Sanders utterly ignored the Black Vote because he never thought he would need it, believing instead that he could generate enough of the Progressive young voters to make up the difference. The African American Electorate taught him a harsh lesson, AGAIN. In addition to his failure to secure a sizable portion of the Black Vote, Bernie lost the 2020 Democratic Primary for the same reason he lost it in 2016, and it is this: Bernie's SOCIALISM would never, ever be embraced by those moderate, Independent voters in the battleground swing States, that we knew (and now has been proven) we would need to secure the 270 vote majority of the Electoral College. He would have lost every single one of the key swing States with his self proclaimed SOCIALIST agenda and love for Castro. And every experienced Democratic voter who truly wanted to get rid of Trump knew this, and set all Progressive purity tests aside in order to support the best Candidate who could win the swing States and secure the ELECTORAL COLLEGE. Thus, he was never going to be elected as our Nominee.....NEVER.
