Like 1990

I predict Trump will win 51-49; it will be like Nicaragua’s 1990 election. People seemed locked into their positions.  The Sandinista opponents won to the surprise of all.  No one was allowed publicly express a contra view.  So the voters spoke up in the booth.

No one knows

They says Trump’s campaign is imploding due to recent revelations of alleged harassment.  It might be true.   Not a good thing.  But given that Trump broke every rule, and still won the nomination, how can anyone really believe the old rules apply?


After last night’s debate I realized that Trump is channeling Alinsky’s Rules for Radicals better than his opponent, especially

“Ridicule is man’s most potent weapon.” There is no defense. It’s irrational. It’s infuriating. It also works as a key pressure point to force the enemy into concessions”


“Pick the target, freeze it, personalize it, and polarize it.” Cut off the support network and isolate the target from sympathy. Go after people and not institutions; people hurt faster than institutions”.
