Another in a series of why we love Scotland:
Donald Trump's campaign is in trouble financially. Recently Trump claimed that he had raised $3 million with his first ever donation email. But that was just another one of Trump’s many lies.
One of his sons, Donald Trump, Jr., went begging for donations to the Trumper's campaign chest, asking a number of Scottish politicians (which is probably illegal) for contributions. They turned him down, but one of them, MP Natalie McGarry of Glasgow East, also sent along a letter explaining her refusal to finance Don the Con's campaign.
And it is a thing of beauty:
White supremacist Trump supporters:
Mirroring her rebound in the overall race for the White House, Clinton leads Trump by 50-39 percent in trust to handle terrorism in this poll, produced for ABC by Langer Research Associates.
That’s similar to the gap in March after a more closely divided view last month. This reflects Clinton’s superior marks for her response to Orlando.
More think she did a better job than Trump responding to the attacks overall (by 18 points, 46-28 percent) and showed better temperament in her response (by 34 points, 59-25 percent).
Looking forward, more say Clinton gave them confidence that she could handle a similar incident as president (+19 points vs. Trump, 53-34 percent).
She also prevails, albeit more narrowly, in having better proposals for preventing future attacks (+9 points, 44-35 percent).
