The Stretch Drive (6)

Well holey-moley: the ABC News/Washington Post tracking poll today has Trump leading by 1 point. Yes, yes, margin of error, mumble mumble—but there’s no avoiding the obvious fact that Hillary’s once large lead has evaporated. The state-by-state polls showing Hillary still ahead should be viewed with skepticism.


That sound you hear is Hillary being toppled from her Podesta. The Washington Post says that “Democratic enthusiasm dips.” Ya think? Democrats were never very excited about Hillary in the first place. The best thing Donald Trump can do is go to Mar a Lago for the rest of the week and say nothing—with one exception: Trump should attack the media even more strongly than he has before.

I guarantee you that the major media newsrooms today are in a panic and plotting what they can do to help her out. The Hill has a great story today that bears on this question:

Poll: Public overwhelmingly thinks media is in the tank for Clinton

By Joe Concha

The American public thinks the media wants Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton to win by an almost 10-to-1 margin, according to a new poll.

The Suffolk University/USA Today poll released Friday asks, “Who do you think the media, including major newspapers and TV stations, would like to see elected president: Hillary Clinton or Donald Trump?”

Of the 1,000 adults surveyed, 75.9 percent answered Clinton, while just 7.9 percent picked Trump, the Republican nominee. Just more than 16 percent of respondents chose either “neither” or “undecided.”

The Suffolk University/USA Today poll comes on the heels of an Associated Press/GkF poll last week showing that 56 percent of likely voters, including 87 percent of his supporters, believe the media is biased against Trump.

In that poll, 51 percent of Clinton supporters said the media is biased in her favor, while just 8 percent said it’s biased against her.

And the mainstream media wonder why they’ve steadily lost customers. . .

Meanwhile, our hidden camera at Clinton campaign headquarters recorded this scene this morning:
