It’s time to take a look at the presidential race once again, and I have to begin with a program note. Up until now, I’ve been writing these columns every two weeks, but from now until the election, they’ll appear each Monday like clockwork, since the race is about to head into the homestretch.
In the past two weeks, the presidential race has certainly had some ups and downs. Hillary Clinton saw the end of her slide in the polls, and the beginning of the bounce she earned by her first debate performance. Donald Trump has seen his numbers fall, which is likely only going to get worse as the impact of his unusual debate performance (and everything that happened in the week thereafter) begins to be reflected in more and more state polls.
