Trump supporters think Hillary getting forced out helps them? Why?

Wikileaks big reveal on Clinton is not good for Trump if it takes her out…

Assange has long claimed that he has more information on Hillary Clinton and that he would release it during a time that would be most damaging to the Democrat presidential candidate. The October Surprise was touted as one that could significantly damage Clinton’s chances at the presidency. The Blaze reports that Assange has made numerous claims about his Hillary Clinton documents, noting that he has more information that would prove damning to Clinton but that he wanted to release it at the best possible time. In an interview with Megyn Kelly, Assange said he believed the new data dump on Clinton would be “significant” if it caught on in the media.

“I think it’s significant. It depends on how it catches fire in the public and in the media. I don’t want to scoop ourselves. [But they are] different types of documents from different types of institutions that are associated with the election campaign, some quite unexpected angles that are … quite interesting, some even entertaining.”

Therefore, when WikiLeaks told reporters that Assange would be making a major announcement on Tuesday, many automatically believed it would have to do with the Clinton data dump. However, it appears that reporters and the public will have to wait a little bit longer for the release. With Assange cancelling the release due to security concerns, it is unknown if or when the announcement will take place.

Old polls, got it, but Clinton is by far the weakest candidate.

I also understand people might be upset about the DNC choosing a new candidate NOT named Sanders, which they surely WOULD do.

Best case scenario: The issue Wikileaks raises damages Clinton BUT keeps her in.
