Today, we at Civic Eagle are publishing a first in an ongoing series of articles dedicated to the Presidential campaign and events surrounding it. Instead of our traditional blog posts, we will be posting a few graphs, tweets and/or links that get you up to speed quickly. Some of the articles we link to will be longer reads, but we will try and include highlights from the pieces that get the main point so you can stay on the go.
1) Vanity Fair published a profile on Hillary Clinton and her insular campaign in their November issue.
2) Two graphs from a recent article at the FiveThirtyEight blog
3) Over at the FiveThirtyEight blog, Micah Cohen, Nate Silver and Harry Enten debate if Jeb Bush should panic about his standing in the race.
“hjenten: Okay, here’s the thing: Bush is now advertising on TV heavily in Iowa and New Hampshire. If his numbers aren’t moving after a month, then why would they move in three months? After a while, you reach a saturation point. So the story doesn’t seem ridiculous to me.
micah: But Harry, maybe Jeb won’t see much growth in a month, while other candidates in his “lane” are still pulling support (i.e. Rubio, Kasich, etc.), but who’s to say Rubio won’t flame out in a few weeks? Same with Kasich?
hjenten: That’s a rather interesting point, Micah. I think that’s part of the reason using a wait-and-see approach isn’t the worst idea at this point. It’s October.”
4) Finally, in a slight departure from the Presidential race, we take a look at House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy’s decision to step out of the race to become the next Speaker of the House.
