Viewing the third-party options as a waste of his vote, Tim admitted he wasn’t really undecided, but wanted to keep his options open in case Clinton stumbled. – Molly Ball [The Atlantic]
A VOTE isn’t registered according to enthusiasm. A vote is a vote and it’s looking like 20-something voters are coming to that conclusion early.
The inevitable collapse of Gary Johnson and Jill Stein has helped.
From NBC, the most important election story that is finally coming into focus.
At the end of August, the most recent date for which data is available, Democrats employed at least 4,200 people working to elect Hillary Clinton, with about 800 at the Clinton campaign, 400 at the Democratic National Committee, and nearly 3,000 on the payrolls of state parties in 13 battleground states, which typically employ a majority of field organizers.
Republicans, meanwhile, employed about 880 people during the same period, with about 130 at the Donald Trump campaign, another 270 at the Republican National Committee, and roughly 480 at the 13 state parties.
This is how Barack Obama got it done.
There is another big difference between Team Clinton and… um… er. “Team” Trump.
On the Republican side there isn’t a team.
The RNC and Trump are not working together. Repeat that sentence in your head a couple of times.
Team Clinton is running its campaign “in coordination” with the Democratic Party and state parties. At the end, this is what’s going to make the difference.
Well, that and the fact that Donald Trump choked the first debate, leaving a lot of people wishing Mike Pence was at the top of the ticket.
Donald’s got Sunday to change this around, after that it’s going, going, gooooooone.
