This post is dedicated to my sister, who calls every day wanting to know if Donald Trump is really going to lose. Oh yes indeed. He’s really going to lose. I hope these poll results are enough to bring peace and serenity to Drum households everywhere.

By the way, I attribute Hillary Clinton’s strong results to her consistent outreach to women and her newfound outreach to cats. Until recently, our cats didn’t care. But now they do—the female of the species, anyway. Here is Hopper diligently keeping an eye out for ruffians who might be inclined to vandalize a, um, local resident’s Hillary yard sign.

DEMOCRACY DOES NOT EXIST...

without free and fair elections, a vigorous free press, and engaged citizens to reclaim power from those who abuse it.

In this election year unlike any other—against a backdrop of a pandemic, an economic crisis, racial reckoning, and so much daily crazy—Mother Jones' journalism is driven by one simple question: Will America will move closer to, or further from, justice and equity in the years to come?
