Kagro in the Morning - September 16, 2015

David Waldman delivers a dispatch from the front lines between the Muslim invasion, truck hunters, and the three hour assault on intelligence coming tonight.

 

Greg Dworkin looks at the newest polls and analysis, and tries to determine what correlations are the best predictor of future results, and which are just a snapshot in time:

 

Carson wins!  Clinton loses! (with a 20 point lead...)

 

Whether correlation or causation, endorsements seem to be one of the best predictors of success in primaries.

 

Public Polling Actually Understates Trump's Support Among Republicans.

 

Much more in the Abbreviated Pundit Round-up!

 

Texas high school shows zero tolerance for clocks by having child named Ahmed Mohamed arrested for engineering while brown.

 

Wednesday is Joan McCarter day on Kagro in the Morning and she has a lot to discuss:

 

New polling shows the massive political peril for a Republican government shutdown.

 

How the Tea Party Got Hijacked by Trump’s Troll Party.  Nowhere is this demonstrated more clearly than in Florida, where a plurality think that both Jeb Bush and Marco Rubio should drop out. The Club for Growth escalates its war with Trump.

 

Having lost in Iran, again, McConnell sets up another Iran vote.

 

John Boehner, bad Speaker of the House or worst Speaker of the House ever?

 

Republicans will defund Planned Parenthood even if it didn’t do anything illegal.

Is the CNN Republican Debate being created as a wrestling smackdown?  Isn’t professional wrestling the single best metaphor for the success of Donald Trump?
