  • It should come as a surprise to precisely zero people that Trump has a “strained” relationship with several mainstream media outlets, especially the “Failing” New York Times and “Fake News” CNN.  But a new study of Trump’s tweets, conducted by Axios, reveals once and for all who the President hates on the most.  And the winner is….The “Failing” New York Times by a hair with CNN securing a close runner-up position. With that, here is a sample of some of our favorite Trump Twitter Trolls of the media just since election day… First, the “Failing” New York Times: The failing just announced that complaints about them are at a 15 year high. I can fully understand that - but why announce? — Donald J. Trump November 22, 2016 The failing was forced to apologize to its subscribers for the poor reporting it did on my election win. Now they are worse! — Donald J. Trump After being forced to apologize for its bad and inaccurate coverage of me after winning the election, the FAKE NEWS is still lost! — Donald J. Trump Somebody with aptitude and conviction should buy the FAKE NEWS and failing and either run it correctly or let it fold with dignity! — Donald J. Trump January 29, 2017 The failing story is so totally wrong on transition. It is going so smoothly. Also, I have spoken to many foreign leaders. — Donald J. Trump November 16, 2016 The sent a letter to their subscribers apologizing for their BAD coverage of me. I wonder if it will change - doubt it? — Donald J. Trump November 13, 2016 Wow, the is losing thousands of subscribers because of their very poor and highly inaccurate coverage of the “Trump phenomena” — Donald J. Trump November 13, 2016 And, “Fake News” CNN: While on FAKE NEWS Bernie Sanders was cut off for using the term fake news to describe the network. They said technical difficulties! — Donald J. Trump February 12, 2017 Congratulations to for being number one in inauguration ratings. They were many times higher than FAKE NEWS - public is smart! — Donald J. Trump January 25, 2017 . is in a total meltdown with their FAKE NEWS because their ratings are tanking since election and their credibility will soon be gone! — Donald J. Trump January 12, 2017 Just watched - So biased, inaccurate and bad, point after point. Just can’t get much worse, although is right up there! — Donald J. Trump December 12, 2016 . is so embarrassed by their total (100%) support of Hillary Clinton, and yet her loss in a landslide, that they don’t know what to do. — Donald J. Trump November 29, 2016 via

Did the candidacy of Ross Perot swing the 1992 presidential election? Reading the Wikipedia article on the 1992 presidential candidacy of Ross Perot, one would get the impression that it made no difference to the outcome of the election. However, after looking at the numbers myself, I thought it was pretty clear that if Perot had not been in the election, Bush would have probably won Colorado, Ohio, Tennessee, Washington, Wisconsin, Nevada, New Hampshire, Iowa, Georgia and New Jersey. This would have been 105 electoral votes, enough to give Bush a narrow victory. Pennsylvania would have become close, as well. Was there any attempt to carefully poll Perot voters in those states to determine if Bush actually would have won those states, such as New Jersey? For example, to take New Jersey as the pivotal example, Clinton won by 80,000 votes and Perot won 520,000 votes in New Jersey. Therefore, if the Perot voters had split 310 to 210 for Bush in New Jersey, then Bush would have won New Jersey. Has a poll been done to determine this? UPDATE Some commenters seem to have the idea that Perot was mostly supported by Democratic voters. This seems to be some kind of modern revisionism. I well remember the 1992 election and Perot was getting most of his support from conservative voters. Here is a Field poll from 1993 that backs this up for those who are not old enough to remember: As you can see Republican voters dominate Democratic voters in his support base, in some cases by a 2-to-1 ratio. I don't really consider it arguable that Perot candidacy hurt Bush. The question is whether it was enough to have turned the election or not. To answer that question I think we really need poll data from specific states such as New Jersey.
