[Marxism] Vote for Clinton?

On the polls . . . .the predisposition of the media is to keep as many
people watching the horse race as possible.  This plays out as a
predisposition to cover the lesser of the two candidates acceptable to
them.   This also increases the tendency of voters to think that they have
to vote for one or the other of them to keep the one that scares them most
from winning.

We've seen this happen with Trump repeatedly since he declared his
candidacy.  He talks his campaign into the ground, so the media responds by
giving him more air time.  Even if it's more air time to imply that he's a
trainwreck, it's more air time.  Then his polls numbers nudge up.

This is an old game.
