No big deal, just Trump (who has no idea what treason is) acknowledging that it's a capital offense and naming people he thinks committed it.


Trump's been to 25 of 30 red states and 11 of 20 blue ones. But he's been to two blue states incessantly -- ones where he has a golf course.


Democratic women and older Democrats are much more likely to prioritize beating Trump over candidate positions. Both groups also disproportionately back Biden.


Very interesting new data from Pew shows that while a black or Hispanic Dem nominee would spur some voter enthusiasm, a white man would disproportionately dampen it.


Guess what? Looking at bills enacted and votes taken in the House, it turns out that Democrats actually can both investigate and legislate.

Trump's never been above 46 percent in poll averages, pre- or post-election -- a function of a sharp partisan divide that he intentionally fosters.
