Episode: BOTH SIDES NOW: OCTOBER 22nd, 2016

Both Sides Now Logo

Randi Weingarten & Ron Chrisite — labor leader & Bush-Cheney aide — largely agree when it comes to Trump’s poor 3d Debate performance. Both regard it as an absurd alibi that he’d lose the election because it was “rigged” but split on whether the GOP is indeed “rigging” votes in red states by enacting voter suppression laws.

There’s also a consensus that Obamacare’s problems are probably coming too late to be a voting issue this year but, predicts Charles, “it’ll haunt Democrats for years”...

David Corn (Mother Jones) and Charles Cooke (National Review) agreed broadly that while Pence helped Pence in the veep debate, the Kaine-the-Interrupter helped Clinton by reminding all of his ticket’s key arguments concerning latinos, women, nukes, Putin. A curious new poll pitting Obama against Trump showed POTUS 44 doing only a couple of points better than Hillary — how come?
