It’s a Tuesday – so that means more primary elections, today for both parties in Oregon, and for just the Democrats in Kentucky. It’s likely that Sec. Clinton and Sen.

On Monday, after more than a year of trashing pollsters, and insisting he doesn’t need to hire a pollster, Trump did the traditional Republican thing and hired a veteran GOP pollster.
Both Clinton & Trump camps are also beginning to leak some of their strategies to the media – and as expected, it looks to be a brutal next six months.
