Hillary To Unveil VP Pick At FIU This Week; Florida Being Called Critically Important

Hillary Clinton is “widely expected to present her choice” for vice president at FIU on Saturday, according to the NYT.

Miami is being chosen as the location for the announcement, with some analysts saying that Trump cannot win unless he takes Florida.

Trump will be in Miami next week, hosting a fundraiser at his Doral resort.

Clinton and Trump are now in a virtual tie in the state. In the 2012 election, Obama defeated Romney by less than a point in Florida .

 

jorge perez is voting for hillary, but wins either way:

Hillary for 2016! #NeverTrump

Pass.

I lean liberal/progressive, but she’s an HORRIBLE candidate (and is more of a centrist/moderate than a true lib). If someone like Romney or Ryan would’ve run against her instead of clown boy Drumpf, she would lose in spectacular fashion.

But I’m also not voting for Drumpf. I have trouble picturing myself ever voting for a backwards thinking republican politician ever again.

Vote 3rd party. For me that’ll be Jill Stein (Green party). But for others that may be Gary Johnson (Libertarian). And for user Afi below that might be Darrell Castle (Constitution party).

I’m going to vote for what I believe in and NOT for the lesser of two awful choices.

That said, good on FIU. They’re more Miami than UMiami will ever be.

Florida is usually a swing state. It is seen as the ultimate political battleground.

Technically Ohio is the “ultimate political battleground”. Ohio is the only state to have voted for the presidential election winner in every election since 1964. And they’ve done it in 33 of the last 37 elections. No republican has ever won the presidency without also winning Ohio.

But Florida is definitely 1B to Ohio’s 1A. They are THE two major swing states. Florida has only voted “wrongly” for the next President once since 1964 compared to Ohio’s never.

They are not only highly populated but they are highly predictive of national trends.

Unfortunately, that is not a realistic option. I was #FeelingTheBern, and am no fan of Hillary, but Trump is seriously dangerous. #NeverTrump #ImWithHer (I guess, lol)

There are other political parties. There is actually a true progressive running, and she’s even a female. #I’mWithJill

The fact this news has nothing to do with development whereas TNM never covered comparable political events, and double digit upvotes and downvotes for every Clinton and Trump comment respectively, clearly shows bias and paid Hillarydrones at work.

Why would pro-development people even choose Clinton over the king of real estate development? Shes a women and/or Trump hurt their feelings? Give me a break! Remember all the lives ruined by the Clinton Whitewater real estate scam, Bill’s rape record, and military screw-ups from Bosnia to Benghazi? TRUMP OR BUST.

I said the same thing, for an website with mostly real estate agents and other investors Trump should be the number one choice. Yeah some of them could be urban core lovers but development isn”t drive by big government handouts like Hillary or Bernie promotes. Trump promotes development,

So, you think Republicans promote public transportation? Environmental protection? Fair housing policies? Public parks? Art festivals? Public institutions? Services for elderly? Services for immigrants? Without these, Miami won’t exist for much longer.

If you think a right-wing populist will make Miami better, I suggest you do some research.

Plenty of republican cities are building public transit systems and promote art festivals. All the others is your own responsibility, stop expecting an handout.

Which is exactly why Miami needs to stop electing crooked Republican mayors and other sum politicians.

Hopefully Florida is smart enough to vote red this year. #Trump2016

Smart enough to vote for the guy with NO coherrent plan for any aspect of his “platform”?

Oh, crap. Florida voted for Rick Scott twice, so maybe you’re right. This state IS “smart” enough to vote for Drumpf.

Interesting to see the amount of pro-hillary people on this site, you all actually have everything to gain if trump wins.

suomynona

Yea, with Drumpf we can gain an intolerant country that hates women, Hispanics and Muslims, and drop nukes all over the world, and giving the wealthiest Americans huge tax breaks that have little benefit to the average American.

SOUNDS FANTASTIC!

Her poll numbers are pretty terrible against someone as hated as Drumpf. Her backroom handshakes with establishment democrats can’t help her now. I’m not going to vote for her but I’m legitimately concerned she loses to this republican bozo.

Totally agree and I’m Cuban.
Cubans should not be allowed to retire here without working a minimum of 10 years.

Simon

I’m Cuban. I don’t care if that policy goes. It’s outdated. Further, Miami is home to a vibrant immigrant community full of middle- and upper-class Latinos (and Europeans) who came to the States legally. Not much will change for the immigrants.

That policy is bad for the US, and I hate Drumpf.
