As Sheriff Clarke says in his PSAs in Milwaukee, the police need a partner. Get armed and get trained. The police need us.

The primary victims of inner-city lawlessness, aside from the perpetrators who shoot one another, are the people, almost exclusively minority, who have to live there. Trump was very close to making this point in his "law and order" statements in the debate before he got distracted on the question of whether the bad crime rate (but not nearly as horrific as it was under Dinkins, or as it currently is in other large prog hells), in NYC has gone up a little or down a little, depending on how you count it. I don't really know but I suspect this is something that does resonate with a substantial portion of the minority population, BLM showboating notwithstanding, which of course is why Trump talks about it.

So the fact crime is lower now than 25 years ago means that an upturn is ok?

The abuse of statistics ought to be a crime.

 Skeptical Voter

The New York Times readers (and editors and reporters) like to say, against all evidence to the contrary, that they are the "reality based community".

I'm not certain what their reality is, but back in the day in Berkeley we would have called their reality a bad trip.

Off the wrenching topic, with apologies, my monograph on the Alice books went off into pre-production today; I hope JOM folk will forgive my absence as a commenter (I was never absent as a reader--I think the term "lurker" is unfair).

Wow. I thought my opinion of Ryan and McConnell could go no lower. Boy, was I wrong!

It's a real trick, making themselves (and their party) look petty, incompetent and careless of the lives of our military, and making Obama (and Harry Reid!) appear to be thoughtful and sober.

The L.A. Times daily tracking poll (Sep. 23-29, which includes 4 days pre-debate and 3 days post-debate)

http://graphics.latimes.com/usc-presidential-poll-dashboard/

has Trump up 47.3% to 41.7%, thus Trump support is up +.6% from yesterday while Clinton support is DOWN .8% and not only reflects two straight days of significant increases in Trump's lead but it may be a mainstream media acknowledgment of a significant Trump victory in the debate given Hillary's accelerated decrease in the weekly average after GOING UP .3 yesterday. At this point, of course, the increase may simply reflect a better lead-up to the debate for Trump. We shall see in the coming days.

The poll shows black support for Donald Trump down from 18.2% two days ago and 17.7% yesterday is now at 16.9% -- hmmmm.

One senator who wanted to talk more about the legislation before it became law was Bob Corker, R-Tennessee, the chairman of the Foreign Relations Committee.

Corker said he tried to arrange a meeting this weekend with Senate leaders, Obama, and Secretary of State John Kerry to discuss “a better route” for the legislation.

“We were unable to get the meeting,” a frustrated Corker said on the floor. “For reasons that still are unknown to me, that was not achievable. There was no desire whatsoever to sit down and meet.”

Earnest said the White House had spoken to Corker.

“He’s going to have to explain to his constituents why he supported a piece of legislation that he claims to harbor significant concerns about,” Earnest said of Corker.

Corker spearheaded a letter Wednesday signed by 28 bipartisan senators raising concerns with the law and saying they would consider changes to it, a particularly unusual missive on the day the President’s veto was turned back.

“Every one of those senators that signed the letter voted for the bill, including Sen. Corker. So obviously they thought it was better to have the bill than not,” Schumer noted.

Fuck off, Corker. This spineless worm took away the power of the Senate to reject the Iran deal and now he's whining about the possible consequences of his vote. Maybe if he and his fellow whores were more concerned about doing their jobs instead of campaigning to do more damage he wouldn't be embarrassing himself and the country. Every damn one of them should be voted out and start anew.

Concerns have mounted within the Clinton campaign regarding the looming “Florida problem” for several weeks, and most recently, and despite millions in spent advertising targeting the state, Donald Trump’s lead in Florida is now turning into domination.

From the same article above re: Florida

Love this!!!

And then, just yesterday, Hillary Clinton was a no-show at a planned event in Hollywood, Florida. The campaign gave no public statement regarding Mrs. Clinton’s sudden absence, but perhaps it was the embarrassment of only a handful of supporters showing up and being outnumbered by Trump supporters standing just across the street:

The Clinton camp must realize Florida is gone. They are really cranking up the ad buys in Ohio.

At no point does anyone mention that having a child while not married is what set all this in motion. No if you have a child taxpayers should cover their 'needs'.

I have been poking around with a paper that came out yesterday involving Pay for Success and it appears to me that there is a Bipartisan consensus among pols at all levels and quite tied to the Never Trumpers that they want Marx's Human Development Society precisely because they intend to monetize it for themselves and their cronies. No wonder WIOA envisions pols as providers of its services as well as the charters under ESSA.

Another related report cites Utah as an exemplar.

"At the state level, Utah has broadly embraced the integration of data, evidence, and outcomes in its policy and budget processes. Utilizing the capacity of state and local leaders, the private sector, and university partners, Utah developed multiple pay for success projects and created the Policy Innovation Lab at the University of Utah to support the growth of innovative and data-driven approaches to difficult social problems across the Western United States."

I basically only follow the RCP averages. I'm really worried about Florida, btw, where Trump has lost last week's slim lead. He's down for the week in North Carolina too, although he's still marginally ahead.

The one thing that irritates me about RCP's graphs is that they change the increments from one state to the next, so that the graphs are not visually consistent at all. The same 0.8% can look like a gigantic lead on one chart while looking like a dead heat on the next.

RG, I'm with you re: the polls.

You have to look at who the customer is for the poll, and what exactly they're buying.

I doubt very much that any MSM outlet is paying for their polls because they want to present accurate information about the state of the campaigns to their audience.

The only polls that are accurate and not tainted by bias (in theory) are the internal polls each campaign conducts, the results of which we will never see.
