Why The NYC Mayoral Race Is Moderates’ To Lose

Why The NYC Mayoral Race Is Moderates’ To Lose

Progressive Democrats have struggled to break through in one of the most high-profile elections of the year: the Democratic primary for New York City mayor. With just days until the election, candidates who have stayed away from more progressive positions on policing, taxes, development and education continue to dominate in the polls. We’ve seen a similar dynamic in some races beyond New York this year as well. In this installment of the FiveThirtyEight Politics podcast, we hear from two people…

The corruption in question led…

Michael Cohen claims Trump told him he’d let Don Jr. go to prison before Princess Ivanka

Michael Cohen claims Trump told him he’d let Don Jr. go to prison before Princess Ivanka

If Donald Trump were on a life raft in the middle of the ocean with Don Jr. and Ivanka, I have no doubt he’d start fricasséeing his firstborn before ever roasting his daughter—or a root vegetable, for that matter. Ivanka may be the only other person on earth who even registers as human through his rheumy, Adderall-besotted eyes. So naturally it’s no surprise that she’s the one he’d try to keep out of prison—assuming she didn’t have to take the fall…
