The Washington Post reported Sunday that the presidential election is, for all intents and purposes over, and named Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton the victor. Really? Might that be her excuse for ducking out of Wednesday’s Fox News debate?
The Post reported:
After two tumultuous weeks focused on Donald Trump’s behavior toward women, Clinton is ahead in nearly all of the key battleground states where her campaign has directed the most resources, according to many recent polls. But some once-solidly Republican states — notably Arizona, Georgia and Utah — now also appear to be in play.
The Post added that the only question for Clinton now is whether to run up the score and turn the contest into a humiliating rout or to let it play as is in a display of good sportsmanship.
Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton faces a striking choice in the final three weeks of the campaign: to expand her efforts to states that Democrats haven’t won in a generation, or to stay a current course that, if conditions hold, would deliver her a resounding electoral college victory.
Apparently, the Clinton camp isn’t afraid to show bad form. The Post reported:
Clinton aides said they see advantages to running up the score in the electoral college, where 270 votes wins the White House. Victories in unexpected places could boost that total, handing her more of a mandate come January and decreasing the potency of Trump’s complaints of a “rigged” election.
Post readers weren’t quite so sure, however.

@washingtonpost It’s Hillary that’s stumbling, wobble, knees buckle, loses shoe and hurled into a van. Polls are flawed, media bias active.

Liberal media outlets declared former Vice President Al Gore the winner over George W. Bush in 2000. How’d that work out?
But the most famous media faux pas occurred in the 1948 presidential race, when media predicted that Republican Thomas E. Dewey would easily defeat incumbent President Harry S. Truman. Everyone remembers how that one came out, and it made for an iconic photo of Truman displaying the Chicago Tribune headline.

In the words of Yogi Berra, “It ain’t over ’til it’s over,” and November 8 is still three weeks away.
