IMPORTANT NOTICE: The blogger has received notice of new responsibilities relevant to new "laws" coming from the European Union. The blogger receives no personally indentifiable information. As the task of understanding just what this new "law" (not applicable to American citizens) means will take some time, The Musical Patriot respectfully asks citizens in the European Union to cease and desist from accessing this blog for the time being. I completely regret the need for this request. When things are clearer, I will have more to say. I look forward to welcoming Europeans back to this blog. Europeans and others are instead directed to my new blog with a new host. (See link in post below.)

Some Polls Have Presidential Race Tightening...

...But -- "Read the small print."    

Polls can be uncertain even as polling techniques have improved over the years.  Thus, any article about polls from journalists should be read critically.

However, this article from The Hill is useful, particularly in the way it describes the "unfavorability" ratings of the two major candidates as a "wild card."

The reader is advised to read all the way through the article, as the news gets better toward the end.  

Note:  Donald Trump is a demagogue -- arrogant, ill informed, ethically challenged.   He remains decidedly unprepared for the White House.  For these reasons he represents the most dangerous gamble in American Presidential electoral history.
