Today brings bad news, good news, and more good news. On the bad news front, it’s the second anniversary of my cancer diagnosis. Boo! On the good news front, it’s been two years and I’m still alive and kicking. On the more good news front, here are the three latest polls out today:

This post is dedicated to my sister, who calls every day wanting to know if Donald Trump is really going to lose. Oh yes indeed. He’s really going to lose. I hope these poll results are enough to bring peace and serenity to Drum households everywhere.

In-depth journalism that investigates the powerful takes real money and is so damn important right now.But it doesn’t take a Mother Jones investigation to know that billionaires and corporations will never fund the type of reporting (like they do politicians) we do that exists to help bring about change. Instead, our mission-driven journalism is made possible by people power, and has been for 46 years now since our founding as a non-profit.

In “TITLE TK” Monica Bauerlein writes about the perilous moment we’re in, and why it’s so important that we raise $325,000 by the time November’s midterms are decided so we can be ready to throw everything we have at the big issues facing the nation no matter what happens.
