I caught up with Bob Dylan and asked him what he was thinking about the election. Here’s what he said:
“Well, you know, I don’t often git involved in politics, or talk on the record. I liked John Kennedy. And well, I didn’t write ‘She Belongs to Me’ or ‘Love Minus Zero, No Limit’ about Hillary Clinton, but I could have. She kind of reminds me of Joan Baez. She works really hard. Plus she’s got a law degree, she was First Lady, Senator, Secretary of State, and she did a good job.
“And I didn’t write ‘Positively 4th Street” about Trump, but I could have. He hasn’t done much good. Stiffed a whole lot of people.
“And I did write ‘Masters of War’ about the Republicans.
“And that’s all I got ta say.”
According to the data presented on FiveThirtyEight.com, “Polls Only Forecast,” Hillary Clinton has a 87.8% probability of winning the election. Hillary has a 91% probability of winning, if the election was held tomorrow, according to FiveThirtyEight. She only has a 77.6% chance of winning based on polls and historical data.

Joe Biden, at the American Constitution Society, ACS, on June 9, 2016, quoted Trump, “We’ll come back in November. Wouldn’t that be wild. if I’m president and I come back to do a civil case?” (Washington Post, here, Wall Street Journal, here, YouTube here).
The Vice President asked if there is any other way than to take this as a “direct threat” to the independence of the judiciary.
Biden said, “Either Trump doesn’t understand or he doesn’t care…. This behavior smacks of authoritarianism.”
Biden also said that Trump “is an exaggeration, not an aberration.” He described the failure of the Senate to hold hearing on Judge Garland, and 88 judicial vacancies on Federal Courts, some from as far back as January, 2015.

In the June 7 Primaries in New Jersey and California,

The raw data* are below.
Hillary kicking ass. and the ass she is kicking belongs to Donald Trump.
Trump has publicly called for members of the US Armed Forces to torture prisoners and kill family members and children. I feel; we all feel the fear, the hatred and the desire for revenge. It’s easy to understand the emotions.
But law enforcement, the defense community, and the Commander-in-Chief must conquer their feelings. Torture and killing family members are illegal war crimes.
Trump, as Commander in Chief, would give US soldiers – from Privates to Generals, Seamen to Admirals, the choice, “Follow orders – and face war crimes prosecutions, or disobey orders – and face Court Martial.”
