We're in the thick of election coverage and on the publishing side of the organization planning coverage for the remainder of 2016 and beyond. But I wanted to take a moment to let you know about another book I read recently which I can heartily recommend. It's called 1177 BC: The Year Civilization Collapsed.

With Trump again making rape accusations against his opponents husband, it's really incumbent on reporters to bring up the fact that there is sworn testimony from Trump's then-wife Ivana that he raped her in a fit of rage over a failed baldness remediation surgery. Come on, folks. Get it together.

Freshly assimilated into the Trump Collective, RNC strategist Sean Spicer says Mr Trump has made clear that the RNC must launch "aggressive" attacks on Hillary Clinton and not follow its past practice of not be willing to attack opponents.

Along those lines, David Cay Johnston has a new article out about how Donald Trump's rise in the world of Manhattan real estate was paved or, perhaps better to say, cemented with enduring ties to members of organized crime. Johnston's article is based on his and Wayne Barrett's years of reporting on Mr Trump. And guess, what, Barrett is joining us at The Hive (sub req) at 12:30 PM to answer your questions about Mr Trump. Join me at 12:30 with Wayne, TPM Senior Editor Catherine Thompson and fellow readers.

To bring you up to speed there's a NBC/WSJ poll out this morning which shows Clinton ahead of Trump by 46% to 43%. There's also an ABC/WaPo poll which shows Trump up by two points, 46% to 44%.

There are two clear things we can draw from these polls.

White nationalists and neo-Nazis aren't the only group represented among Trump delegates. There are also ones being busted on child pornography, weapons and explosives charges. But white nationalists do seem to be the common theme. And here's yet another. Lori Gayne, a Trump delegate from Illinois whose twitter handle is "whitepride". Admittedly, in Gayne's case, "open racist" may be a more apt description.
