The Bellweather- First Report: We are Still Winning

This is the first of our Bellweather Reports, published on an “as-needed” basis. (Note our weather vane and the direction it is flying.) We are still winning.  They are still losing. We are still mounted on horses. They are still afoot. And Donald Trump still works for us, and ...
