  While it is early in poll and voting analyses to draw any final conclusions, one overlooks the importance of staying on message down the home stretch at their own peril. This obviously includes making the right priorities in determining how the short time allotted to candidates in campaign rallies (and the television coverage of...

T’was the night before the election in my house, I was hard at the computer gripping my mouse…and the winner is…

    After more than a year of campaigning, the election tomorrow–not at all to exclude early voters–comes down to this: 1) Will the pause  in the damage Hillary suffered at the polls with the undecided voters due to FBI Director Comey’s shenanigans, continue? 2) Will Comey’s exoneration of Hillary from any wrongdoing connected to...

    When Bernie Sanders famously said: “Enough of those damned emails,” many thought they’d heard the death-knell of that wearisome argument. Just this week, President Obama referred to it as “all that noise,” designed to confuse new voters about Hillary’s trustworthiness. The concept of “noise” comes from cybernetics and it refers to anything...

Hillary still leads in the national polls, although that lead has shrunk almost daily over the past week. The RCP Poll of polls shows a 30 percent drop in Hillary’s lead, down to just a little over 4 percent. The magnitude of the drop can be seen by comparing the last three ABC News...

Calling November’s Presidential Race.

Posted on Oct 20, 2016 in Bernie Sanders, Democratic Party, Donald Trump, Elections-U.S., Hillary Clinton | 0 comments

  Most instant polls gave Hillary the win in Wednesday’s final presidential debate. Meanwhile, Trump is again claiming victory and citing online polls as his proof despite the fact that those site-specific popularity contests have been discredited by virtually every legitimate pollster. Some have even encouraged their audiences to vote more than once. Trump dismisses the...

Trump’s denigration of women–a Trumpoclypse? Part 1, Monday 10-110, Part 2 an eon later, i.e., four days slater, 10-13

Part 1, Monday, Oct. 10 My daughter Lisa, whom I often use as a sounding board, was outraged, to put it mildly, over Trump’s latest denigration of women. This time, she said in an exchange of e-mails, ‘Trump has crossed so far over the line that,he’s “toast.” No possibility of recovering from this. Of course...

I empathize with patriots, and consider myself one as well, but Kaepernick is right on this–also update on the polls

  Unquestioning pride in everything that our country does may be good for some, but definitely not for all Americans. Many thought that principle was established during the Vietnam and Iraq wars, where lies about the Gulf of Tonkin incident drew protest by those who didn’t blindly believe all that their government was telling them....

The dust begins to settle-Hillary’s lead diminishes-Healthgate and what it all means.

Posted on Sep 14, 2016 in Donald Trump, Elections-U.S., Hillary Clinton, Public Opinion Polls | 0 comments

  As predicted here and elsewhere, the post-convention bounces of both candidates receded back to pretty much where they were going into the conventions. Due in part to the Republican convention going first, and Donald’s seemingly self-destruction behaviors, his bounce was shorter lived and smaller than Hillary’s. The latter’s larger-than-expected convention bounce pretty much...

Will the greed of some capitalists bring about a class war?–How Trump and Clinton’s policies play into the equation.

  The growing wealth and income gap between the top 1 percent and the other 99 percent has reached staggering dimensions. And now, more than ever, the “have-nots” are made up largely by the middle class, which now includes many “workers.” Years ago I dismissed Marx’s class conflict theory as yet another, albeit more...

How are the people who know Hillary and Donald best voting? New York revelations.

  The decades long attacks on Hillary Clinton, from Whitewater, back in the nineties, to Benghazi now, have succeeded in raising doubts among voters about her trustworthiness. Nevertheless, she still leads Donald Trump by a healthy 7 or so points in most national polls. One interesting phenomenon polls also reveal, is that former Republican...
