@AstroTinker Not my podcast, but I'm looking forward to listening.Between the crowd sizes & the unskewing, it's like 2012 playing out twice. First as tragedy then as farce.

"Hangs back, hangs back, hangs back" is a pretty good summary of the Trump strategy. market for how deep Mike Pence will stab Trump in back by Election Day. Hard question to objectively quantify.

@owillis Lots of things are our fault. But we also get blamed a lot for people's disappointment that not everyone shares their views.It's almost as if most voters are capable of listening, considering and making decisions without heavyhanded lectures from media figures
Retweeted by David LeonhardtAmazingly, despite this supposed media gutlessness, the majority of voters nonethless view Trump the way you do...
Retweeted by David Leonhardt @catbert234 @Azi @HillaryClinton @WorkingFamilies You seem to have missed the sarcasm there.Really smart piece. of the worst presidential campaign fiasco of recent- or maybe any- times
Retweeted by David LeonhardtAn important point. The media deserve some blame for Trump, but much of the criticism is logically weak.'ve said this since 1992 but how is team handball not bigger in America?!

Retweeted by David LeonhardtAnyone who believes the wealthy will only use this tactic against "tabloid" journalism in the future is deluded.
Retweeted by David LeonhardtHuckabee, just now, to Trump: "Your stamina is amazing!" This is so embarrassing for all involved.
Retweeted by David Leonhardt @ralphnf1 @neeratanden hed saying study debunks white econ hardship theory of Trump not really true; it's just 1 layer removed.

Retweeted by David LeonhardtLike, not even an Olympic 100-meter dash. But my high school 100 could be run between Ledecky's finish and 2nd place
Retweeted by David LeonhardtThe 100-meter dash will be run in less time than Katie Ledecky waited for the silver medalist to finish.If Maryland were a country, it would have as many people as Kyrgyzstan -- a really sweet swim team.! indeed. An important book. @neeratanden This also makes my point nicely --> @hdijma Sure. Not a bad phrase.Bingo. @GrumpyCatPol Both are necessary. Trump appeals only to whites. But it's not an accident he's the nominee after 15+ yrs of an income slump.4. Trump doesn't happen without economic anxiety. It's a necessary but insufficient part of the causes of Trumpism.3. The economic anxiety caused by 15+ years of an income slowdown has ignited anger that does indeed have racial roots for many people.2. "Economic anxiety" and "racial resentment" are not mutually exclusive theories for Trump's rise.1. I recommend this tweetstorm, while also disagreeing with it ...
Because there really isn't much difference between Clinton and Trump from a progressive perspective. people: anything that I say or tweet that is inaccurate or offensive should hence forth be chalked up to sarcasm
Retweeted by David Leonhardt @MattGrossmann Thanks @MattGrossmann Geographic or income mobility?With 87 days to go for #Election2016, a reminder that Donald Trump has not released his tax returns

He actually has hundreds of field offices, and they're amazing. The best. @ZippyNews @jncohen Yes, but people get far more from Medicare than they paid in. It heavily subsidizes people over 65. @IreneAdlerCal I must disagree. The campaign is a story. Journalists can't collude to pretend otherwise.Rated true.

Retweeted by David Leonhardt @TRLanier3434 Yes.We owe a debt of gratitude to the journalists chronicling, and enduring, the reality of the Trump campaign. I'm walking to stage for pool footage, campaign volunteer shouts "don't print any lies!" He's the one guarding the press pen. Nice.

For guests, not Trump employees. extent to which Trump channels the talking points of a foreign government is truly remarkable and shocking.'s a scenario with Rubio as nominee.

"Real worries" wasn't about 2016, but broader trends. @adamcarstens Clearly, GOP have much bigger problems.
