It will be a memorable night for sure. Tomi, any comments on the potential influence of this new resurfacing of the email server issue by the FBI? Thanks for your insight, as usual.


Not really a surprise:

Comey Letter Backfires As Email Scandal Revival Energizes Hillary Clinton Supporters

"Later Mook suggested that the Comey letter is helping the Clinton campaign by adding fuel to their early voting fire. It is likely that the Comey letter will backfire on Republicans and motivate Democrats to get out and support their nominee."

"Hillary Clinton may end up benefiting from Comey’s actions because the FBI Director might have gotten rid of the one thing that could have beaten her.

With one written paragraph, James Comey may have destroyed Democratic complacency."

Millard Filmore

Some new information has come to light about Trump's charitable giving.

"If this guy’s pretending to be a billionaire wasn’t such a profitable grift, his adult children would have him under supervised guardianship, because some of these stunts seem distinctly pathological. Kudos to the Washington Post‘s David Fahrenthold for staying focused"

As an example:
"Trump crashed a charity event [uninvited, and bumped a real charity doner] for kids with AIDS, sat on stage, danced the Macarena, left without giving a dime.

@stuck: who needs laws or trials? that's just the typical government inefficiency. Trump says she is guilty and that's all anyone really needs. So get out there and vote the Trump - Putin ticket!

@Tomi: You are 73 years old? Wow! You are very well preserved. I am envious.

Millard Filmore

Gosh! Isn't this special. The FBI does not know what is in the new emails because they do not yet have a warrant that will let them look and see.


The Trump vs. McMullin battle for Utah spills into the open


So father, so son&daughter:

Even Trump’s Kids Haven’t Donated to His Campaign
No Ivanka. No Donald Jr. No Rudy, Newt, or Chris Christie. None of Trump’s inner circle invested in his campaign—even as he asked working people for a few bucks.

"only one of Trump’s children showed up on a list of itemized receipts for the campaign: Eric. On Sept. 7, 2016, Eric Trump appears to have contributed $376.20 listed only as “meeting expense: meals.” It appears that money was later refunded."


You can still play Hillary to win at odds 1.32 at Betfair and at 1.3 on most other betting sites!

Tommy, are these odds the best odds you have seen in your life-time?

Iowa Woman Arrested After Voting for Trump Twice Because ‘the Polls Are Rigged’

A Des Moines woman has been arrested and charged with voter fraud after she allegedly voted for Donald Trump a second time out of concern that her first vote for Trump would be counted for Hillary Clinton instead.


Trump booted a black man from his rally and called him a ‘thug.’ Turns out he is a supporter.

Hi Everybody

Well.. Mr Numbers has been at it again.. Please make me stop...

I wrote my Election Night TV Guide blog for you. Now you will know at 7PM already, is it a blowout election for Hillary, or is it a nailbiter that Trump could even win. I map out all the options on how to know well by 7PM and know for sure at 8PM. Yes we will now 8PM which election result is coming

Hi Millard

Yeah, I'm pretty proud of that too. Never thought I looked 73 when I looked into the mirror. Also my parents may have been a bit surprised at the hospital in 1960 to find a 17-year-old baby when I was born, but hey, we are young at heart haha.

Or else, I might only be 56yo and still a young whippersnapper

I think its sisu :)
