Greg Dworkin rounds up punditry and polls. Greg believes the best polling question at this time is “Who do you think is going to win?” Gerald R. Ford lives on, at the Gerald R. Ford School of Public Policy.

Trump is fueling a surge of voters — for Clinton. Hillary Clinton thinks she knows what will take down Trump, but will voters care as little as Trump does? Trump will take out even Republican Governors if they don’t love Clownstick enough. Potential VP choice Bob Corker has the Fed’s attention.
