Im not even hard on for trump, but I still love every negative thing I read about hillary. Like desperately hoping she actually is terminally ill and finding inner peace by justifying it as karma.

Oh, my initial comment is incredibly biased. There is nobody left on FJ for me to convince. This late in the game there is nothing I could say or do to swing anybody here one way or the other, so I'll just say what I want. The only way people will change their minds now is if something happens between now and November where Clinton or Trump does something either miraculously good or insanely bad, though I'd bank that Clinton will probably get destroyed on-stage against Trump and that could very well swing voters. But as for me there is nothing left for me to do but circlejerk, piss people off, and other general means of douchebaggery.

The thing about the recent polls is that you have to look at both the polling methods and the people running the polls. A lot of the polls performed are done with flaws. The most common one is self-reporting and opt-in surveys. This only attracts certain people and presents biases among the correspondents. The other issue, people running the polls, presents a different problem where the results could be falsely reported, the polls could be run with the intent to take samples that heavily support what the people running it support, or simply they don't know how to run polls. That being said, a lot of the polls that keep popping up are from mainstream news corporations and are opt-in surveys. This isn't quite rigging polls, but it is doing them in such a way as to give Clinton favorable numbers. It would make sense that most of the people who watch CNN and care to opt in to their surveys would be quite the Democrats and would have a strong bias towards Clinton, and this is before the possibility that the corporations themselves could intentionally tamper with the results. Remember: back in December of 2015 the various sites like ABC, CNN, MSNBC all did online reader surveys for the election and Trump won in all of them by a huge majority, prompting these sites to take down the live polling results and later put up new "results" that claimed Sanders was the winner. There has been no indication that they have stopped, because it isn't illegal for them to do this and they have no obligation to stop if they are using underhanded tactics.

It likely won't matter if Trump annihilates Clinton in the debates because the mainstream media will only report on the parts that fit their narrative, and it's pretty clear where their bias lies, and since not everybody will watch the debates live...

Well, what I meant to say is, it's so dangerously biased that I think it sacrifices the integrity of your point - the notion that nobody supports Clinton for her politics and that the majority American voting population (approx 241 million - so over 120 million Americans) are voting for her just because they've been taken in by biased media. That not one of those Americans is a freethinker who believes in Clinton's political stance; but that all those in favour of Trump are. It's just false.
