The Presidential Election of 2016 Is Here

No sense in guessing who will win.  According to the polls, the election is very close.

I will predict that Republicans will hold both the House and the Senate.

Currently there are eight dead-heat Senate races.  I believe the GOP will win five of those.

That means they will have a 51-49 advantage if they don't win any of the others.

On the presidential front, here are the final polls.

Bloomberg has Clinton up by three.

Investor’s Business Daily has Trump up by two.

CBS News has Clinton up by four.

And Fox News has Clinton up by four.

In the battleground states Quinnipiac has Clinton leading by one in Florida.

Emerson has Trump up by seven in Ohio.

The New York Times has it a tie in North Carolina.

And Remington Research has Trump up by one in Nevada.

In New Hampshire there is chaos.

Emerson has Clinton up by one.

But WMIR has Clinton up by a whopping 11 points.

Someone will be embarrassed tomorrow.

Four years ago, a man named Nate Silver correctly predicted every single state in the Obama-Romney race.

Here's what he says about Clinton-Trump:

NATE SILVER, EDITOR-IN-CHIEF FIVETHIRTYEIGHT.COM: “We show a three-point lead nationally for Clinton, 2-1 favorite. The Electoral College map is less solid for Clinton than it was for Obama four years ago, where four years ago we had Obama ahead in states totaling 320 some electoral votes. Clinton has 270, so one state away from potentially losing the Electoral College. You'd rather be in her shoes than Donald Trump, but it's not a terribly safe position.”

Again, Talking Points is not going to make a prediction on the presidential race but I will tell you that the Trump folks are hanging their hopes on voters who shun the polls who do not participate in that kind of a thing.

Hillary Clinton is pinning her hopes on a high minority turn out.

According to the last Fox poll, Mrs. Clinton is winning blacks 89 to four.

Hispanics 63 to 30.

Now there is no question that we the people have learned an awful lot in this campaign.

The WikiLeaks hacking has exposed corruption in the press far beyond what we knew.

Both CNN and NBC News apparently have extensive ties to the Democratic establishment.

And over the weekend we learned that Washington Post columnist Dana Milbank, who The Factor has scrutinized before, apparently collaborated on a column with a DNC staffer named Tyler Lykins.

Mr. Milbank did not mention that to his readers.

The press corruption is part of the reason Donald Trump continues to say that the whole process is rigged -- from the FBI investigation of Hillary Clinton, to campaign reportage, to the actual voting.

And today the Daily Caller is reporting that Clinton confidant and Virginia governor Terry McAuliffe used a mechanical autopen to sign thousands of letters allowing perhaps as many as 60,000 convicted felons to vote.

If that is true, it's very disturbing.

In 2014 the U.S. Senate race, which Democrat Mark Warner won, was decided by 18,000 votes in Virginia.

Summing up, dirty campaign unpopular candidates.

The Factor has risen above the fray and provided you with reliable information throughout.

We are proud of that.  It will be fascinating to see how Americans respond tomorrow.

And that's the memo.
