The peasants speak.

In a stunning repudiation of the so-called political establishment, a 70-year old real estate billionaire tycoon turned reality TV star with exactly no prior experience in politics concluded his first-ever political campaign by winning the highest political office in the world last night. It is nothing less than seismic. Late...

No one knows anything.

No one knows anything. Since February, when it began appearing that the top of the card would feature Clinton vs. Trump, I have been saying that no one knows anything. The metrics that have been used successfully to handicap previous presidential elections don’t work this time. There is too much...

The campaign and the grocery money.

Either the race is already over or it’s not. The answer depends on how much faith you have in polls – particularly in this most unusual of presidential election years. If you have faith in the polls – and as of now based on experience in 2012 and 2008 there...

Trump is down. But it’s not quite over.

If the polls are to be believed, Hillary Clinton has the race all but sewn up. The Real Clear Politics average of polls shows her with a seven percentage point advantage over Donald Trump nationally. A relentless assault by the Clinton campaign and by the media on Trump’s sexual past...

Is it over?

Is Trump finished? Certainly any prior Republican candidate would be. A Bill Clinton can be accused of sexual assault and still get elected president. But that’s because Democrats have an easier time in the media. A Republican, on the other hand, can expect to be hounded for any transgression no...

Trump v. Holt

An estimated 84 million people tuned in Monday for the debate between Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump. That number sets the high water mark for televised presidential debates. With national polls showing the race to be a statistical tie, and with big polling leads for Hillary Clinton in key states...

Sick and deplorable.

Exactly three weeks ago in this space we had the grave diggers turning the earth in preparation for the burial of the Donald Trump campaign. Gross missteps by Trump coming out of the conventions, made worse by a national media that is openly in the tank for Hillary Clinton, were...

Small is the gate and narrow the road.

Donald Trump’s path to victory is narrowing. According to the Real Clear Politics average of polls, Hillary Clinton leads Trump nationally among likely voters by a margin of 47 to 41.5 percent. That’s the good news for Trump. The bad news is in the polling in key states such as...

So whose election is it now?

One post back and we were saying that it was Trump’s election to lose. A couple of brutal weeks for Trump and some really bad news in the polls and it’s now likely Hillary’s race to lose. Or is it? Who is really winning the race for the presidency? Ask...

Trump’s election to lose.

It is Donald Trump’s election to lose. In the week after the conventions in Cleveland and Philadelphia, there is reason to fear that he will do so. At a time when Trump should be hammering relentlessly on the Obama administration’s weak economic record and its foreign policy failures, at a...
