State of play

How I see things in the presidential race:

  • I'm not convinced the current polling tells us much about the race. When one poll tells you it's pretty much a dead heat and another tells you that Hillary is up 10 points, you can surmise that Hillary's winning, but she's having a difficult time making the sale.
  • If Trump were even the slightest bit disciplined, he'd be winning easily, but he's not disciplined and he's not winning. I have many reasons for falling in the #NeverTrump camp, but the primary one is he doesn't believe in anything other than himself. 
  • It's blindingly obvious that the media want to protect Mrs. Clinton, but there's only so much they can do about it. The email scandal is now beginning to morph into a national security scandal and her primary argument, competence, is going away.
  • We are now almost certain to have a horrible person in the Oval Office in 2017. I suppose we're used to that now.
