Princeton Election Consortum - Sam Wang

Some say Sam Wang is just as good, if not better than Nates stats machine....I have never seen Sam's numbers this high....


As of October 5, 12:04PM EDT:

Snapshot (163 state polls): Clinton 317, Trump 221 EV    Meta-margin: Clinton +3.0%

Clinton Nov. win probability: random drift 86%, Bayesian 91%

Senate snapshot (48 polls): Dem+Ind: 50, GOP: 50, Meta-margin: D +1.2%, Nov. control probability: Dem. 71%

PSSSTTT - There is a great story at the link above also re: the altright - Julian Zelizer and I had the pleasure of interviewing historian Rick Perlstein on the subject of the “alt-right.” Fringe movements on the right have been around a long time, and Perlstein has studied these movements deeply, starting with his classic book Before The Storm

Big Money Conservatives Support Republican Atty Genls

Dark money efforts of the Republican Attorneys General Association to elect a.g.'s who will carry the spear for the Kochs in fights against environmental regulation and other government work for the broader public interest.

RAGA has already spent hundreds of thousands of dollars this election cycle in support of Utah Attorney General Sean Reyes (R) and, through its Mountaineers Are Always Free state PAC, West Virginia Attorney General Patrick Morrisey (R), though the group claims both races are “safe for the incumbent party.”

Thus far in the 2015–2016 cycle, RAGA has disclosed about $19 million in contributions received.

So where did RAGA get its money? More than $2.4 million — about 13 percent — came from Koch Industries, Murray Energy, the American Petroleum Institute, Exxon Mobil, the American Coalition for Clean Coal Electricity, and other fossil fuel interests. Another nearly $1.4 million came from the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, which receives a significant amount of its funds from fossil fuel companies and Koch-backed nonprofits.
Attorney general elections don’t garner big headlines. Most Americans likely can’t even name their state attorney general. But these people play a major role in enforcing — or fighting — environmental laws.


and here -


This is some crazy stuff..is your Atty Genl up for re-election - if they are republican you may want to sit up and take notice...

Rep Collins R NY - Hillary Did Not Stand Quietly

Hillary did not stand quietly beside Bill during Bill's indiscretions with other women..Hillary didn't treat the women kindly...wtf

Didn't stand quietly - like other women - who faced the same situation - are you shitting me...wtf - let me just say this - and this is my own take..these Republican men in congress and I will include those republican legislators in my state - take your BS elsewhere..

A poor excuse for a man, to stand there - on national TV, and accuse Hillary of not standing quietly - I suppose like David Vitters wife???? - BS - get out of Hillary's marriage you POS...and your ilk..are deplorable and disgusting..

I know all men don't think this way - so I will not put some rotten apples in the barrel..but I gotta' tellya' - I'm Hot..just as Hillary surely was HOT at the time..she made the right decision for them...eff-off!

I'm done..

Newsweek article needs to be on everyone's reading list - to completely digest the information - read it - uninterrupted - trump branding is Global -

no wonder Hillary tweeted 20 questions for all to see and for moderators to do their due diligence..They make perfect sense now that I read the Newsweek article -

I hope Keith uses his new platform The Closer to PUMP IT UP!


Newsweek article..


I can think of no other way to describe what I just finished reading..CHILLING!

Charlie Pierce has something to say about politics and curves and

Basket of Deplorables - .....snip.......

the people who have attached themselves to a campaign that prides itself on not being politically correct immediately grabbed their badly chafed fee-fees and started screaming for safe spaces.

Regarding the grading curves -

Are we grading El Caudillo del Mar-A-Lago, who doesn't know enough about any issue to throw to a cat, on a curve?

And so much more -
