That's still too high to be complacent.
Just launched: our 2016 general election forecast. How do you predict a general election with Donald Trump? We can think of a few basic approaches. One of them is to assert that precedent doesn’t a…

Agreed, +Paul Hartzer . I just think that polling may be even more unreliable this year than usual, and nobody can afford to be complacent.

Two things: The headline is hilarious and it's true.
One of Donald Trump’s greatest talents is his ability to make some money sound like a lot of money. It’s a skill that's about to come in handy because, ...

The tweets about his fec filing are hilarious. Current fave: I guess Mexico will also have to pay for his campaign.

"Evidence is mounting that doctors who receive as little as one meal from a drug company tend to prescribe more expensive, brand-name medications for common ailments than those who don’t."

Doctors can be bought for a burger. How reassuring.
A third study shows an association between physician drug choices and their interactions with the pharmaceutical industry. Even doctors who received just one meal were more likely to prescribe certain heavily marketed drugs.

I would imagine it's what was being said at that meal that 'sold' the docs! Too many today don't deserve the honorific of doctor, imo. They're ill-educated, dangerous and our current legal system not only allows this, it encourages it!

If you like election politics, this is definitely worth the long read.

+Paul Hartzer I thought his idea that Republicans "police ourselves better" was a lie or, at best, delusional. Look at what the GOP Freedom Caucus did to the previous GOP Speaker of the House. And look how party elites could not beat Trump, who, as you say, isn't even a Republican. The GOP is not just out of touch with what most Americans need and/or want, it's out of touch with itself.

The New Yorker readers will find this parody to be a real hoot.
The Neu Jorker is an hommage d'triomphe, a "'send up'" of New York's most stimulating and insufferable rag. The Neu Jorker is a digital-only download and free to the public.

"In an unusual outpouring, nearly 4 million people wrote the FCC demanding an open internet. Without that public pressure, regulators wouldn't have put in place the strong net neutrality rules that the court just upheld."

People do win...once in a while.
Everyday citizens pushed for net neutrality rules and will benefit from court decision to uphold them.

"So Majority Leader McConnell, pick your rally. Speaker Ryan, accompany him. Governor Scott, attend the funerals of gay victims. Other Republicans and Democrats, recognize L.G.B.T. Americans with both your words and your presence at gay pride celebrations. You want to show our enemies what America stands for? Then stand with us."

Don't usually like Mr. Bruni, but this was excellent.
Don’t scrub the letters L.G.B.T. from what happened in Orlando.

According to the gun owners, about 20% of the population, if they are carrying their guns they will prevent crime. Unfortunately, they have never stopped a single crime in the US.

It's difficult for political writers to come up with good stuff once in a while, let alone regularly during the endless news cycle. Ms. Davidson does it quite often. Here's another.

"So far, however, polls in each of the major industrial states have shown Trump losing. The Wisconsin poll adds to that data and points to some significant reasons why."

He's not so boastful now...about his numbers these days. (Still bragging about his small hands, I suspect..)
Donald Trump used to love nothing more than boasting about his poll numbers: His recitation of them was a staple of his campaign speeches.
