A SUNY professor continues to project Donald Trump as the likely winner of this year's election and he's critiquing polls that predict the opposite in a new opinion piece.
Helmut Norpoth has been predicting a Trump victory since early this year. His model currently projects a win for the Republican with a certainty of 87 to 99 percent.
Norpoth is a professor at Stony Brook University on Long Island.
That flies in the face of just about every other major election forecast out there, which mostly give an edge to Democrat Hillary Clinton, notes the Daily Mail.
Norpoth wrote in The Hill that although the race looks decided, current polling methods are "bunk."...
Donald Trump is inviting conservative activist James O’Keefe to attend the final presidential debate as his guest, according to a new report. “One of Trump’s “secret” debate guests is James O’Keefe. Watch yourself, gullible libs!” tweeted Bloomberg reporter Joshua Green. Trump’s campaign CEO and former Breitbart News chief Steve Bannon told CNN’s Brian Stelter that the campaign had several “surprise guests” planned for Wednesday night’s debate. O’Keefe made headlines this week after he posted several undercover videos showing Democratic operatives talking about committing mischief against the Republican presidential nominee’s campaign.
The Federal Bureau of Investigation has published another set of documents from their probe into Hillary Clinton’s use of a private email server while heading the US Department of State.
The 100-page collection of documents can be read here.
The first document appears to be a summary of the interview – called the “FD-302” – with someone at Platte River Networks (PRN), the contractor that maintained Clinton’s private email server.
With the latest scandal lobbed at Donald Trump coming last night from the NYT which published the complaints of two women who were allegedly assaulted by Trump as far back as 36 years ago, and seemingly intended to keep deflecting attention from the daily "Podesta Emails" releases by Wikileaks, which will likely continue every day until the election, moments ago the NYT's assistant general councel David McCraw responded to the threat by Trump's law firm, Kasowitz, and announced that the New York Times declines to take down the article.
Here's the NYT's reason why it "welcomes the opportunity to have a court" set Trump straight.
Dear Mr. Kasowitz,
I write in response to your letter of October 12, 2016 to Dean Baquet concerning your client Donald Trump, the Republican Party nominee for President of the United States. You write concerning our article "Two Women Say Donald Trump Touched Them Inappropriately" and label the article as "libel per se." You ask that we "remove it from [our] website, and issue a full and immediate retraction and apology." We decline to do so.
The essence of a libel claim, of course, is the protection of one's reputation. Mr. Trump has bragged about his non-consensual sexual touching of women. He has bragged about intruding on beauty pageant contestants in their dressing rooms. He acquiesced to a radio host's request to discuss Mr. Trump's own daughter as a "piece of ass." Multiple women not mention. in our article have publicly come forward to report on Mr. Trump's unwanted advances. Nothing in our article has had the slightest effect on the reputation that Mr. Trump, through his own words and actions, has already created for himself....
