Even Odds for Trump & Clinton: Is Trump a 'Spoiler' or a 'Game-Changer'?

Clifford Young & Julia Clark, Real Clear Politics

In our strong opinion, this is an atypical election cycle that does not follow the normal “rules” or norms of election prediction, and which undermines models reliant on historical data to make predictions. Such a disruptive election means that many of our base assumptions go out the window, and in this case, we believe it yields a situation in which Trump still has a clear path to victory under certain conditions.

Poll: Voters say Trump, Clinton will break promises

Nick Gass, Politico

A majority of voters are not buying that Donald Trump will follow through with any of his pledges, nor do they think Hillary Clinton will attempt to rein in Wall Street, limit the influence of secret money in politics or make in-state and community college tuition debt-free, according to the results of a Quinnipiac University national poll.

This Is The Dumbest, Fakest, Didn’t Happenest Thing Hillary Ever Said

Caleb Howe, RedState

The sexism is less virulent now than it was in 2008, she said, but still she encounters people on rope lines who tell her, “‘I really admire you, I really like you, I just don’t know if I can vote for a woman to be president.’ I mean, they come to my events and then they say that to me.”

Yes, Hillary Was an Enabler

Rich Lowry, Politico Magazine

Hillary’s defenders say this is tantamount to blaming her for Bill’s infidelities. Of course, she’s not responsible for his wanderings. But as a fully vested member of Bill’s political operation, Hillary had as much interest in forcefully rebutting all allegations of sexual misconduct as he did.

Clinton’s email troubles deepen

Julian Hattem, The Hill

Hillary Clinton broke State Department rules through the use of her private email server during her time as secretary, according to a government report that will be formally released today. The 83-page report from the State Department’s Office of Inspector General (OIG) compounds the problems that have dogged the likely Democratic presidential nominee since before her entry into the race.

Hillary still can’t explain why she should be president

Rich Lowry, New York Post

Armed with an impeccable resume and pedigree, and an impressive campaign and fundraising apparatus, Hillary has it all — except a rationale for her campaign and the ability to excite voters.

Hillary Still Working Gender Card, But From a Different Angle

Kimberley Ross, RedState

Hillary the Unaccomplished is still playing the gender card. At this point, that’s all she has left in the campaign. She’s been in the public eye for years, but name recognition is not the same as being qualified for the job of president.

Would Donald Trump Save Americans From Unnecessary War?

Subsidizing prosperous, populous allies and attempting to remake failed states provides little benefit to most Americans, who do the dying and paying. Hillary Clinton’s foreign support actually reinforces Donald Trump’s point: the need for an international policy that advances the interests of the American people.

Big poll story is not Trump's strength but Clinton's weakness

Michael Barone, Washington Examiner

You would expect that the numbers for the putative Democratic candidate for president would rise in tandem with a rise in the numbers for the Democratic president — and one for which that candidate served in a top position for four years. You would expect that — but it's not happening.

The Shameless New York Times

L. Brent Bozell III and Tim Graham, CNS News

It's safe to say that Trump is no one's idea of Mr. Manners. His rudeness toward women was summarized by Fox's Megyn Kelly at the first GOP debate. And the way Trump treated her afterward underlined it. But The New York Times now has no right whatsoever to pass judgment on presidential candidates and their treatment of women.
