Who can’t wait for this election to be over? ME!! I’m tired of talking about – tired of writing about it. And the reason is that no one, me included, is actually writing or speaking of any substance – because there is known to report.
It’s all Bullcrap – it’s all scandal. There is no foreign policy – no domestic policy. The closest thing to substance anyone can report are poll results – and most of them are not even substantive. Virtually all of the best known (to the public) polls show Hillary with a gigantic lead. The only polls which show Trump leading are Rasmussen and IBD/TIPP. Interestingly, these two are the only polls which happen to be historically accurate – with IBD/TIPP being the most accurate over the past three presidential election cycles.
In other words, polls have become as scandalous as the stories relating to both flawed candidates.
Will we ever return to a time when elections are, for the most part, about issues and policy? Probably not. It has now become a never-ending game of gotcha. The party who can create or make public a new scandal, regarding the other, closest to the election, will win. This is what we’ve come to.
