Another shocker from Rasmussen Polls:
The latest Rasmussen Reports weekly White House Watch survey of Likely U.S. Voters finds Trump with 44% support to Clinton’s 37%. Thirteen percent (13%) favor some other candidate, and six percent (6%) are undecided.
The full NYT Op-Ed is below:
Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg needs to drop the political punditry and the name-calling.
Three times in the past week, Justice Ginsburg has publicly discussed her view of the presidential race, in the sharpest terms. In an interview with The Times published Sunday, Justice Ginsburg said, “I can’t imagine what the country would be — with Donald Trump as our president,” joking that if her husband were alive, he might have said, “It’s time for us to move to New Zealand.”
Earlier, in an interview with The Associated Press that appeared on Friday, when asked to consider a Trump victory, Justice Ginsburg replied, “I don’t want to think about that possibility, but if it should be, then everything is up for grabs.”

HTGZ. We have an order in for $25.20.
GGN-GOLD. We suggest buying: scroll down for additional comments.
The demand for income investments is driving prices higher. Many of our recent buys are going thru the roof. We suggest buying HTGZ-listed above- up to $25.30 when it goes ex-dividend Wednesday.
We are finding NO corporate bonds that are paying anything and the mini bonds that we own have appreciated to the extent that we cannot even add.
A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone and online survey finds that just 22% of Likely U.S. Voters agree with Obama’s statement that “there has never ever been any man or woman more qualified for this office than Hillary Clinton.” Sixty-five percent (65%) disagree with the president’s statement. Thirteen percent (13%) are undecided.
We have been telling you for many months to buy gold. Our favorite financial guru is the “new bond king” Gundlach and we have pasted his current comments below. We own several of his funds.
Our only gold holding is GGN Gamco Global Gold Natural Resources which pays a very nice dividend. (13%)
“But if Gundlach is staying away from both the broader equity market, as well as bonds, and as he adds “there are better ways to speculate”, where is he allocating funds now – what are those ways? His answer:
“Gold miners have a very high probability—if you bought them today and were disciplined—of making 10%. One of the things driving markets lower is a declining belief in—and enthusiasm for—central-planning authorities and the political establishment. In this environment, gold is a safe asset. There’s an 80% chance of making 10% in gold; the probability of a 10% gain on Treasuries is 20% at best. I’ve never seen a worse risk-reward setup. “
