Former communications director for Pres.

The pundits have missed it at every turn.

Undaunted by actual events having time and again put the lie to their predictions, the pundit class is now saying that Donald Trump cannot beat Hillary Clinton. The polls tell the story, they say. Hillary is up on Trump by double digits. Then, Quinnipiac comes out with polls in the...

Is Hillary rattled?

Memories of 2008 have to he haunting Hillary Clinton here in New Hampshire.
