Why I believe Trump will win in November

Just three days before the 2016 US election I told a fellow ALP member, “I believe Trump will win.” He looked at me incredulously. “What about the polls?” I shrugged and smiled. “What about the tape of him bragging about grabbing them by the pussy?” “It won’t matter,” I replied. …
