Quinnipiac Generic Poll Tightening

The Real Clear Politics generic ballot summary currently sits at D+7. This is bad. But things could be starting to move against Democrats as evidenced by the collapse in their Quinnipiac lead. The Quinnipiac generic ballot poll has tracked well the unfavorability of the GOP, rising to as high as D+15 in February. So the ...

Roger Stone is a Liar

To the surprise of nobody who pays attention, the Mueller special counsel is looking into "Dirty Trickster" Roger Stone's ties to WikiLeaks. Stone is a known liar. Of course he was working directly with WikiLeaks to release the Russian-hacked DNC/Podesta/Clinton emails.

Probability of Two-Term Trump Presidency Rising

For someone well-versed in the follies of forecasting (working as a professional money manager), even I am stunned at the accuracy of my January 2017 op-ed laying out the case for a two-term Trump presidency.

Midterm elections are almost always bad for the party in power, with I believe 30 House seats lost on average. 2018 is likely to be no different, particularly with a large anti-Trump undertow. However, unlike the 2010 Tea Party massacre in the wake of extreme federal overreach by the Obama Administration, the current form of ...

President Trump and the “Forgotten Man”

A couple of days ago President Trump said via Twitter that his "insider polls are strong." I said to my family that I would bet that expert pollster and senior adviser to the POTUS, KellyAnne Conway, knows precisely how Trump's seemingly odious policies are playing across "Blue Wall" and battleground states. (I have now long ...
