Our Take: Trump's own words speak for themselves & they speak loudly.
Donald Trump is a political wonder. He is hateful, racist, untruthful, and self centered. Yet, he has a following. Trump lost the popular vote, and one the Electoral College by winning narrow margins in key stays giving him the victory.
Our take: Polling and predictions are somewhat risky. However, with this said, looking at each individual state, assessing the data available for that state and watching trends can give a picture of election dynamics at that point in time. Right now, the electoral map may be shifting in Donald Trump's favor. If the trends continue, Trump may be more competitive than earlier polls indicated. It will be important to watch the trends in the month of October as voter positions solidify.
One of the worst things that can happen to a campaign is to have cash flow problems. Trump's campaign is apparently have those problems as evidenced by the campaign's manager pulling back on paid advertisements. This is an indication of cash flow issues and a shortage of cash to fund campaign advertising operationsn.
This close to an election, this issue is not a good one for any campaign to experience.

Donald Trump did 18 interviews with Bob Wooward. What possessed him to do the interviews with a reporter who helped take down Richard Nixon? Some reports say Trump thought he could win Woodward over convincing the veteran reporter that Trump's views were the correct views.
Our Take: Bob Woodard recorded his interview with Trump. Trump is now admitting he downplayed the Coronavirus because “[he} did not want to creat panic...” Apparently, the tapes could reveal that Trump always knew about the deadly impact of the Coronavirus choosing to keep people in the dark instead of educated people about the dangers. Apparently, he chose to withhold information so he would not “create panic.”
190,000 deaths later there just may be a little panic on the news that Trump decided who would live and who would die from inaction and concealment.

“[Biden] called for a 10% tax penalty on U.S. companies that move operations overseas and a 10% tax credit for companies that create jobs in the U.S.
However, he chose to hide it. His ill fated decision cost too many lives. Here is what Trump knew.
Our Take: Politics permeates everything.
