Cuban made his money off of selling a mediocre tech startup at the top of the dot-com bubble... I'm not sure if that was investment skill so much as luck, so he's always annoyed me a bit as a business icon.

Trump is now leading Clinton in the Real Clear Politics average of recognized polls by 0.2 points. 5 weeks ago he was down 12 points.

That's a bit simplistic; he started that company prior to the dot-com bubble and then his follow up companies were during the dot-com, and I'm not sure I'd call broadcast.com a mediocre startup. It basically started the groundwork for large streaming formats.

Let's wait until August to really care about polls. Trump is going to do well now when Clinton is still dealing with Sanders

The GOP really played the long game here. By telling everyone that Obama was a socialist, they desensitized everyone to the word and made it seem like a totally normal thing in America, and now Clinton's campaign has been wrecked before she even got to the general.

I was making a joke, the punchline being that Republicans are the boy who cried wolf for claiming a centrist like Obama is a socialist.

Be specific.

Not only will there be a consolidation, but Obama's approval numbers have been steadily climbing this entire year. She won't distance herself from his successful presidency the Gore did Clinton. The American people would vote overwhelmingly for a third Obama term, which is what she will bring.

Of course, Trump is a wild card. No one really knows what to do with him. So we'll see.

I posted a big rant about this very thing. Statistically it isn't an indicator, it's an indicator of indicators. It doesn't mean anything, especially because it has not one but two degrees of freedom (other/not sure). So when those poll numbers come up and they have Clump and Trinton tied at 43-43 and then another poll says 51-47, and you average them, you're basically making nonsense because one asked an entirely different question.

Wait. Trump leads by a whopping .2, in an average of polls, 2 of which are right wing polls against someone who is still campaigning for the nom in her own party?

This is indeed a day to celebrate
