Have any of you ever participated in a presidential exit poll?

2016 or earlier....

Were you chosen by the pollster or did you choose to be included by approaching the pollster?

Could you have avoided the pollster by simply refusing to participate?

Were your responses written (say on a form) or verbal to the pollster who recorded them?

What else can you tell us about your experience? Did it take long?

Is DU going to DC in January?

Just checking to see where you are on protesting in DC at the inauguration.

I'm trying to decide. I went to Obama's historical inauguration in 2009 and was hoping to be at Clinton's in 2017.

Trump releases Tax Returns???

Concerning Trumps release, or not, of his income tax returns. This could easily turn to another hard hit on Clinton’s tenuous lead as we approach election day. Trump has shown he has no ethics and a few dollars thrown towards one of his accountants could simply produce a faux return showing great levels of income, charitable contributions and tax payments. The IRS will not be confirming its authenticity nor will anyone else. The issue will disappear as an news item immediately and hopefully we can all concentrate on his illegal Cuba deals, Trump foundation shenanigans and “Temperament”. But he could easily own the tax return issue in the final weeks of the campaign.


Will he do it?

Massachusetts has a serious consumer advocate as AG.

Going after Remington and Glock about guns misfiring.

Gotta love it.

The rest of the story about Washington Post poll.

"Despite his woes, not all the results of the new polls were heartening for Mrs. Clinton. The Journal-NBC survey found that her lead essentially disappears when candidates from the Green Party and Libertarian Party are included. She essentially tied Mr. Trump, with 39 percent to his 38 percent. Together, third-party candidates grabbed 16 percent of the support."

Clinton would be wise to get a strong progressive/green candidate on her ticket and listen to him/her.

So Wisconsin destributes 48 delegates to Sanders and 38 to Clinton.

Seems fair.....not.

Sanders wins every county save Milwaukee.

NEW YORKERS! Make sure you are registered and know where to vote.

Friends in New York? Check for them and let them know its time to make changes in Washington.

New Yorker article about the primary has a quote from Sanders that says a lot.

When I spoke to Sanders last week, he refused to speculate about any Convention scenarios that didn’t include him as the nominee. “I look forward to her dropping out and giving me her strong support,” he said. He was adamant that Clinton could not deliver the kind of change that voters are demanding, no matter what policy positions she adopted. “The issue is creating an economy and a political system that works for all Americans and not the one per cent,” he said. “That does not happen through a speech. That happens by reaching out and mobilizing millions and millions of people. There is no indication that Hillary Clinton has ever done that, or ever wants to do that. You don’t go and give speeches behind closed doors to Wall Street and be the same person that is going to rally the American people. That just does not exist.”

Miracle! CBS streams a banner declaring Sanders' Maine Victory on prime time TV.

Is this a sea change, or what?

Explain to me again why the US is spending a cent in the ME for democracy.

This New Yorker article about voting in Egypt and the organization of society there is an eye opener. What is our interest there again? Oil or paving the way for the Apocalypse?
