wilson trump part1The last time Chris Wilson and I discussed elections during a Bayoubuzz video interview, was shortly after the Democratic convention.  At that time, the walls were caving in on the Republican Party and on Donald Trump.  Now, six days before the elections, Trump is suddenly on a major upswing, some Democratic-strong states' walls are collapsing and the news simply gets worst every day for Hillary Clinton as Wikileaks, the FBI Director James Comey email case reopened and Obamacare put a major laceration on the nation's healthcare.  Trump could hit the 270 electoral college votes.  What a turnaround!!

Wilson is the former Director of Research, Analytics and Digital Strategy for the 2016 Ted Cruz Presidential Campaign.  He is the CEO of Wilson Perkins and Allen, a prestigious Research and Data Science firm.  The Cruz campaign was the most data analytics-driven of all republican political campaigns in American history.   

While the candidates speak spin, Wilson speaks data.  Thus, I wanted to get an update on the numbers on the Presidential race and the Congressional battles.

Here is a rough summary of the highlights of our discussion

After the Billy Bush tape was released, the world change for Republicans.   Trump cratered.  White Republican women with a college degree hit a 20 to 40-point movement against Donald Trump.   You saw the decline with Trump but with Kelly Ayotte,  Pat Toomey, Ron Johnson or Marco Rubio had to climb their way back.

It’s been a long process in about 2-3 weeks.  The recovery crescendo came around the time of the Comey announcement about Hillary Clinton.

The election is somewhat of a jump ball although Silvers gives it now about a 70 percent chance Hillary wins because of early voting and the map design.

Trump would have done more early on. For instance, in Nevada, Trump needs to win on election day by about 20 points because of the Democratic early vote advantage.

Romney won on election day by 15%, but, he had a good get-out-the vote operation.

mass2On July 4, 1778, George Washington doubled liquor rations for the soldiers quartered in Princeton, NJ, as a way to celebrate Independence Day. It’s fitting, therefore, that the Fourth of July is America's top-selling beer holiday, according to the Beer Institute. It estimated, in 2013, that sales of beer on the 4th could total $1 billion, doubtlessly higher today. “In moderation,” claims a CA brewery investor, Grover McKean, “beer is tasty and healthy.” Who could disagree?

joe mikaAs Donald Trump faces the top world leaders this week, including a face-time with Vladimir Putin, and as his healthcare proposals face an uphill climb, his poll numbers for how the nation views him could be better.

According to a morning Consult/Politico poll released Wednesday morning, his tweets, including that against MSNBC's Mika Brzezinski, and his personality are not helping him, at all.

indy dayII know the calendar says we are approaching the 4th of July, but, it just doesn’t feel like Independence Day.

Perhaps it should.  It’s hot as heck.  The airlines have been packed. The hot dogs are ready for grilling.  The umps are saying, "play ball". The patriotic activities are scheduled. The fireworks are ready-for-blasting. 

Yet, it just doesn’t feel like independence day.

bill rights2To President Thomas Jefferson, July 4th celebrated more than the signing of the Declaration of Independence. He thought it was a link to the future. The message prominent colonists sent to King George III led to the Constitution and the Bill of Rights, the initial and most prominent feature of which is the First Amendment that guarantees free speech. It’s part of the country’s fundamental essence that each man and woman can say what they feel about government, or anything else, proving President Donald Trump needs some civics lessons.
