LET’S SEE, what to analyze today?
Should we spend time on Hillary’s gestures, her hand across her heart?
Or maybe about the general election being rigged, which seems to be Donald Trump’s latest path to bailing or using it to bounce from defeat to network mogul. It’s the most un-American activity you can deploy as a candidate for president.
Essay: Trump is sowing doubt about the legitimacy of the election. It's dangerous. Press has a duty to challenge him https://t.co/V6CCyZIfdF

The execution of the nuclear scientist Shahram Amiri was reported by the AP. Returning to Iran cost him his life.
And the polls are holding for Hillary Clinton at this point.
Hillary Clinton has advanced among women and consolidated support within her party since her nominating convention, while a difficult few weeks have left Donald Trump still struggling on basic ratings from his temperament to his qualifications for office. She leads him by 8 points in a new ABC News/Washington Post poll.
Trump’s ratings in general haven’t worsened –- they just haven’t improved since he claimed the Republican nomination. And the trouble list is long: Seventy-nine percent of Americans say he doesn’t show enough respect for people he disagrees with, 70 percent express anxiety about a Trump presidency, 67 percent think he lacks the personality and temperament it takes to serve effectively, 64 percent doubt his understanding of world affairs, 63 percent see him unfavorably overall, 62 percent say he’s not honest and trustworthy, 61 percent think he’s unqualified for office and 60 percent think he’s biased against women and minorities.
Already some people are worried that Team Clinton might get complacent.
But that’s hard to do since the debate has turned towards the complete unfitness of Donald J. Trump to be commander in chief.
Why we are where we are in this presidential race, according to Jim Rutenberg.
