What a long, strange trip this year’s presidential election has become.

The media (mainstream, liberal and conservative #NeverTrump) have swarmed all over Trump in the past two weeks. Some Republicans who did not previously oppose Trump also are breaking ranks and coming out against him.

The media, by and large, has moved on from scrutiny of Hillary.

For Trump supporters, it’s confirmation of bias against him and the need to tear down the establishment in its broadest sense. For Trump opponents, it’s confirmation of the reasons for their opposition.

Certainly, “anything can happen.” But as of now, the polls mostly look beyond horrible for Trump and have taken a nose dive.

In a normal election year, it would not be worth the pixels to run a general election poll, because close to 100% of the readers would be voting for the Republican. But this is not a normal year. So, this will be our first 2016 General Election Reader Poll.

.

You have 5 choices: Trump, Hillary, Gary Johnson (Libertarian), Jill Stein (Green Party) or stay home.

The poll is open until midnight (Pacific Time) Sunday, August 7, 2016.
