Polls are so numerous at this point that results vary greatly and everyone can find one they like. Yet all are covered as if they're right!New polls notwithstanding, structure of race still favors @hillaryclinton. Debate could slam door or crack it open a little wider.Uh, @seanhannity? https://t.co/D9ixP3uLO0.@Cubs beat @Cardinals. Magic number: 1!.@KrisBryant_23 triples in run in 9th. @ARizzo44 follows with 2d homer of day; 100th RBI. @JLester34, 8 shutout inning. @Cubs en fuego!!Pull back the curtain, and...now the @realDonaldTrump team says he WON'T disclose results of physical when he visits Land of (Dr.) Oz today.Potential global conflicts of interest 4 @realDonaldTrump have been overlooked, including sources of his vast debt. https://t.co/eEdxy9O5gL

The real skinny from @DavidPlouffe? https://t.co/WW3OAqp3CiBewildered as to why @mike_pence believes calling a white supremacist leader deplorable is "uncivil."How will @realDonaldTrump reveal HIS health records? Here comes the Blizzard of Oz! https://t.co/q122H7t7EbAmazing to watch @realDonaldTrump surrogate Rep. Collins on @CNNSitRoom differentiate between dictators and a "strong leader" like Putin.What @hillaryclinton has to do to close the deal. @WSJ @NBCNews pollster Peter Hart on #AxeFiles. https://t.co/7jSUSBQa0WMiddle class incomes had their fastest growth on record last year https://t.co/9OjaD2MBlpThis is the most important-and heartening-news of the day! https://t.co/H8hw4v7kAE NYTimesIn @realDonaldTrump world, everything's rigged, every institution is crooked & he is the only antidote. https://t.co/Dwsylvg4q5

Horrible, horrible news. Paul Green was a Chicago original, and a civic institution. He will be sorely missed. RIP. https://t.co/8P29TB7yN2Thinking of the victims, the heroes and their families on this day of remembrance. #NeverForget

Maybe a good spot to play the "Sorry, I was high" card. https://t.co/VTkcn58mBV.@GloriaBorger doc on @realDonaldTrump is really worthwhile investment of time. Enlightening, well-done profile. Replaying Sat on @CNN.Had he lived, would JFK have averted Vietnam quagmire? @CarolineKennedy says yes. #AxeFiles https://t.co/igHYoMTspmhttps://t.co/DQw2tdhJkx.@HillaryClinton had valid reason 2 be irritated last night, but she allowed herself 2 SEEM irritated throughout. Cautionary note 4 debates.Little noted was when @realDonaldTrump told Lauer Mexican trip was a success because the official who arranged it was forced to resign! Huh?.@mlauer forum performance could aid @HillaryClinton in debate. If @LesterHoltNBC reads critiques, he won't give @realDonaldTrump same pass.Just watched the #CommanderInChiefForum replay. Wasn't it odd that Matt Lauer was the only one who actually thanked vets for their service?

.@realDonaldTrump on Putin: "Well, he does have an 82% approval rating." That's the measure? So how does he feel about his own 37% fave?.@GovMikeHuckabee Nice to see you. And yes, your daughter does a better job of explaining @realDonaldTrump than he sometimes does himself!Is it just me, or did this scene between @POTUS & Putin remind you of the pre-fight staredown from Rocky 4? https://t.co/Wq0yBM8Q7S

Really admirable gift from retired Senator Herb Kohl to the teachers and children of Wisconsin. https://t.co/7WB8CL3aBAMy painful memory is of the @GOP chair who led his party to 63-seat House pickup in '10. Didn't seem so Left to me! https://t.co/3A6hKHqYLVOf course, what could be more germane to Zika debate than provision authorizing Confederate flags at Vet cemeteries? https://t.co/deVedqVsWcMeant to include his @MichaelSteele handle! https://t.co/gZ8TkP9vwTAlready SOLD OUT for live #AxeFiles with Michael Steele, former @GOP chair & @UChiPolitics fellow, 9/20 at @CityWineryCHI. Should be fun!After an August lull during which he declared polls "rigged," @realDonaldTrump is back to displaying them like baubles on a charm bracelet.Looking forward to being back at @ColoradoCollege, where my family has deep ties. Wonderful place! See you soon. https://t.co/RNX0aTcYEdSorry!! https://t.co/VQyiUPtHSiHow can @realDonaldTrump boast on one hand about his years working system yet plead that $$ to FL AG in midst of TrumpU probe was benign?Dunno. Will check right away. It was a great conversation. @MrGrahamMoore is a brilliant guy with compelling story. https://t.co/uyWX7FO5GdHis Oscar speech among most powerful ever.

Basic immigration message of Team @realDonaldTrump today: We'll deport criminals; punt on the rest. https://t.co/nFuqfF1me1 via @nuzzelI thought @realDonaldTrump LOVED tacos? https://t.co/cb68hkP4PG via @nuzzel https://t.co/0WYlThK0wGWith so many casting grudging votes, why give people an excuse to flake by telling them that the race is over? https://t.co/umJ5oykQL1

Fantastic 2-1 win for @JLester34 and @cubs on beautiful day at Wrigley in what could be playoff preview w/@SFGiants! https://t.co/Hd6iaKt1JgI agree on socks. Offensive to vast majority of law enforcement men & women who do valiant work. Still his right. https://t.co/S5IgkJJn5iBecause my father and his family fled tyranny and oppression FOR the freedoms the flag represents. https://t.co/8Ylb2qro7ETurns out Putin is an advocate for full transparency and disclosure--in the U.S., if not for Russia. https://t.co/btp6Ywe7dcAs an immigrant's son, I revere our flag & values for which it stands-including the right to protest injustice, even if it angers NFL fans.

Hovering around zero % among black voters, @realDonaldTrump doesn't want to blow it in visit to Detroit church. https://t.co/RRIC4mmVFbSo good to see @JasonHeyward coming back at the plate. He's already won games for the @Cubs with his glove!Doesn't sound like @SenJohnMcCain is placing a bet on his party's nominee becoming POTUS. https://t.co/VHkyv2XARDMedium confident. Seems imperative for him to do them to show he's up to job. If he ducks, he loses for sure. https://t.co/bdJl5qVTZdThis campaign has about three weeks to run before debates consume the story.Lost in hubbub of @realDonaldTrump speech was his pledge to withhold Fed $$ to "sanctuary cities." That includes 5 largest cities in U.S.Definitely!! I want to have him!!! Brilliant, interesting guy. https://t.co/fMERn1kWSDThis is an unbelievable play for @Cubs by @Addison_Russell tonight! https://t.co/L7TYWHWNsT

Remarkable contrast between the Diplomatic Donald we saw today and Thumpin' Trump we saw tonight. Can't help w/concerns about temperament.Missing from this hail of red meat: The mass deportation he promised for a year.Take your tired, your poor, your huddled masses yearning to breathe free...and shove 'em!Weird that @realDonaldTrump recites lines and says stuff like "so true," as if he's reading someone else's speech.In his ebullience, @realDonaldTrump even adlibs a gratuitous "lock her up" type shot in on @HillaryClinton.Will number four or five be the mass deportation he promised during primaries?That "wonderful, wonderful" president of Mexico has pretty much called @realDonaldTrump a liar, albeit not to his face.With TRUMP emblazoned on it?Shouted barrage of @HillaryClinton bashing, to delight of crowd, is meant to grease way for any modifications in mass deportation plan.
