    8/13/2016 @ 1:32 AM - Saturday Morning Post: The Weekly View from Washington The widely accepted notion that an army of the economically dispossessed forms the core of Donald Trump's support may be more myth than fact. That's the conclusion of a massive new study by Gallup that analyzed 87,000 interviews the polling organization conducted over the last year. It found that Trump supporters aren't suffering more acutely than the rest of the population from the effects of trade or immigration. Nor are they likelier to earn less or to be out of work. And even among white Republicans, Trump doesn't perform better in those communities that have seen manufacturing jobs disappear over the last quarter-century. Polling indicates Trump's...

  • Slate - Who Cares Who Sits Behind Hillary Clinton or Donald Trump?
    8/11/2016 @ 5:24 PM - America owes a debt of gratitude on this day to disgraced former Rep. Mark Foley, the diddler. By showing his face at Donald Trump's Florida rally Wednesday night and sitting in the same camera shot as the candidate, he canceled out the story about Seddique Mateen, father of Orlando shooter Omar Mateen, who on Monday appeared just above Hillary Clinton's left shoulder during the broadcast of a rally. Now that both Trump and Clinton have had unsavories sitting behind them at recent rallies, they're both tainted by the same nonstory, and both might now be loath to weaponize the other's nontransgression. It would be a minor victory in this intensely...

  • Gant Daily - No, Obama was not the founder of ISIS
    8/11/2016 @ 4:45 PM - At a rally in Florida on Wednesday, Donald Trump described President Obama as the founder” of ISIS, going on to say the terrorist organization is honoring President Obama.” Really? On Thursday on CNBC he amplified these comments, saying Hillary Clinton was the co-founder” of ISIS. Like so much else that Trump has said, these claims are false. The founder of ISIS is Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, a shadowy Iraqi cleric who President Obama is doing everything in his power to kill. Trump has claimed he knows more about ISIS than Americas leading generals. Clearly this is also total nonsense; he doesnt seem to have done the slightest thing to educate himself about ISIS. In...
