I've mentioned a number of times recently the significant divergence between the national campaign numbers coming from the online tracking polls, often newcomers to the field, and the more traditional premium phone polls. Quinnipiac has had a somewhat GOP leaning sampling approach in the last couple cycles. But their new poll out today puts Clinton 10 points ahead of Trump. Meanwhile the TPM Electoral Scoreboard remains at Clinton 326, Trump 165.
Some amazing stuff in here, as our reporter Tierney Sneed talks to sundry white nationalist and racist leaders about their various levels of sads over Trump embrace of Rubes/Bush 'amnesty.' I would counsel people that schadenfreude toxicity is real and dangerous and sometimes fatal. So ease into it.
Sen. Richard Burr's (R-NC) ad making an appeal to African-American voters uses stock footage of kids in Africa.
(Possibly subtextual message from Burr that North Carolina doesn't have enough black people - couldn't find any to film - and he wants more?)
So there you have it. Last night at a rally in Mississippi, Donald Trump brought the 2016 presidential cycle full circle by embracing the Bush/Rubio "amnesty" agenda which kicked off the nomination process in 2015. 'Embrace' can't have much meaning with someone as promiscuous and erratic as Trump. As I said last night, this should be seen more as an effort to sow confusion than anything else.
