in 2017/Top Headlines by

President-elect Donald Trump looked at hundreds of marble samples before selecting one for the lobby of Trump Tower. He can recall, in painstaking detail even decades later, how he stood in the cold and oversaw the ice-making process at Central Park’s rink. And, during the campaign, he personally reviewed every single campaign ad, rejecting some over the smallest of perceived flaws. The hands-on, minutiae-obsessed management style that Trump has relied on for decades in the business world will now be…

Throw in Libertarian candidate Gary Johnson and Jill Stein of the Green Party and the Donald goes up by five points. Head to head is within the 3.1 percent plus-minus margin of error. And the Q poll, while always widely cited, has its share of…

Tom Jackson: If Donald Trump wanted to lose, what would he have done differently?

in 2017/Top Headlines by

As Edwin Starr sang, “Absolutely nuthin’!” (Say it again, y’all.) That’s right.

Everything wrong with the presumptive Republican nominee’s…
