9 days to go: Biden's lead over Trump is holding, while Clinton's was collapsing at this point
(CNN)The clock is running out on President Donald Trump's chances for a comeback. He continues to trail former Vice President Joe Biden nationally and in the key swing states with just nine days to go. But perhaps most worrisome for the President: Trump's clearly behind his 2016 pace. By this point four years ago, he was rapidly closing the gap with Hillary Clinton. No such advancements can be seen in the 2020 polling against Biden. Right ...

‘SNL’ final presidential debate sketch is yet again terrible
With nine days to go until the 2020 presidential election, President Trump and former Vice President Joe Biden are making their final pitch to voters. So is “Saturday Night Live.” There is just one more episode of the comedy show to go before Election Day on Nov. 3 — and this week’s penultimate cold open parodying the last presidential debate didn’t change any minds. It was a wash. The situation had been looking up. Oct. 17’s politics sketc ...

Dare we dream of a Joe Biden win? Given all that's at stake, not yet
A friend calls to say he’s been having anxiety dreams about Donald Trump. Another, a highly rational man with a forensic intellect, tells me he’s found himself praying for a Joe Biden victory. A third reports checking polling website fivethirtyeight.com in the dead of night. Sometimes twice. None of these people live in the US, and none is a US citizen. More to the point, none of them is especially neurotic. But something about the US presiden ...

he US President declared America is "energy independent" during a debate about climate change in the final presidential debate before the election last night.

Trump comes out strong. But is it too late?
Had Donald Trump debated three weeks ago the way he did Thursday, he might be in a better place. His defense of his handling of the pandemic was cogent. He aligned himself with the public health experts he’s previously attacked. He took credit for a robust stock market. ut there was no winning this debate — not 12 days out from an election in which 47 million people have already voted and the number of people who say they’re undecided is ro ...

My Wild 2 Weeks Inside the Trump Campaign Bubble
LAS VEGAS — Monday was a day of rage for Donald Trump. He woke up at his Las Vegas hotel, a gold brick of glass on the edge of the Strip next to an abandoned lot, and was already in a foul mood. The previous day he had seen a TV ad that accused him of belittling American soldiers. “Losers. Suckers. Dopes. Babies,” the ad said. “That’s how Donald Trump describes our men and women in uniform.” He had railed about it at a rally in Carson City — “ ...

Obama's speech in Philadelphia was powerful, America needs more from him
Barack Obama finally hit the campaign trail for his former vice president, Joe Biden, on Wednesday night, after four years of mostly shying away from the political spotlight. But while his razor-sharp speech was a welcome reminder of how great a campaigner Obama is, maybe he doesn't have to spend the rest of his post-presidency as a warmup act. At the start of the Trump administration, Obama seemed to vanish overnight. We'd catch glimpses of h ...
