Donald Trump is giving a raging, rambling speech with accusations against everyone and everything. But there's one thing he flagged that everyone needs to understand the details about.
Here's what he said ...
The retiring Harry Reid tells TPM's Lauren Fox that he has set the stage for Democrats to nuke the filibuster for Supreme Court nominees if Republicans block Clinton's nominee(s).
"They mess with the Supreme Court, it'll be changed just like that in my opinion," Reid said, snapping his fingers together.
Given the outsized impact of David Fahrenthold's reporting on the election, I've been wondering for a while what the genesis of that reporting was. The first it came across my radar was when Fahrenthold managed to prove and then shame Donald Trump into actually coughing up the $1 million for veterans' causes that he had pledged during a fundraiser he held in January. I figured that was the origin of it. Now we have confirmation.
It's October 24 and the PollTracker Average stands at Clinton 50.2 percent, Trump 42 percent, an 8.2 percentage-point spread
The TPM Electoral Scoreboard stands at Clinton 323, Trump 177. Evan McMullin is leading in Utah, worth six electoral votes. Alaska, Arizona, and Ohio are in the Toss Up category.
For months, more than a year actually, I've been writing about the hunger for dominance and revenge that drives Trump and the campaign and movement he's built in his image. Even in the face of looming defeat he's cultivated an atmosphere of menace, calling the country's voting system rigged and hinting he may defy an adverse verdict at the polls. And yet, coming off the final debate, even with continued talk about rigged elections and cherry-picked polls which duck the trend predicting a devastating defeat, we seem to be seeing something different: the emergence of bitter and dejected low-energy Trump.
