Episode: BOTH SIDES RADIO: OCTOBER 29th, 2016

Shrum &  Cooke discuss if the ’16 election is being “rigged” and by whom. They agree that it’s another ridiculous Trump exaggeration…but rigging by onerous Voter ID laws is threatening the franchise to millions. 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”. As for Trump’s Access Hollywood tape + a dozen women claiming assault, Shrum-Cooke concur that will have a big impact because it’s so visceral and insulting. Best Guesses: that alone probably will net HRC 5-7 points…while her emails overall will likely cost her at least as many.

Rich Lowry and Wayne Barrett agree that Russia’s hacking was unprecedented and consequential although it wouldn’t, shouldn’t (and didn’t) overturn the Electoral College. Again, there’s agreement that Trump should but won’t divest a company that will create a daily and unconstitutional conflict-of-interest...

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? On Syria, it turns out at this point that there’s not that much difference between the nominees other than Pence except leaning toward challenging the Russians with ground troops (which DJT dismissed a week later)...
