RUSH: Right here it is, the very question I asked, attempting to stimulate a fire and cause chaos out there. Now they're actually asking it! I guarantee you this comes from that program.  I guarantee you.  What this is, is a science column where they answer questions written in by readers.  The headline exactly:  "Dear Science:  Why Aren't Apes Evolving into Humans?" You know what the answer is, by the way? Quick answer: Dear so-and-so... "We are apes."

RUSH: If all of this stress resulting from interpersonal and structural discrimination is leading to an unfair share of alcoholism, heavy cigarette use, and generally impaired physical and mental health, don't you think that investigators will find ways to scientifically, quote, unquote, blame all of this on the hate-filled, racist, sexist, bigoted, and homophobic Republican Party? 

RUSH:  He's back now predicting Hillary Clinton has a 79% chance of winning the presidency, compared to Trump's 20%.  Now, Silver still has a lot of acolytes out there.  He still has a lot of true believers.  And they're applauding and they're partying and they're ecstatic, but they are forgetting something crucial.  Nate Silver has been wrong about Donald Trump predictions seven times since last June.

RUSH: How did this happen, folks?  The stock market came back, futures are up 100 points, sky isn't falling, wizards of smart said that the world's financial markets were gonna go to hell all because of the Brexit vote.  Sounds familiar, doesn't it? Everything happens predictably except when the doom and gloom sets in, they want you to believe it's permanent and it's all over.  And, sadly, it works. 

RUSH: The Quinnipiac poll is out, and there's an NBC/Wall Street Journal poll, and they're not telling you the meat in that poll.  I'm telling you: Aside from Hillary's lead in the NBC/Wall Street Journal poll, that's the only thing in that poll that is decent or good for her.  Everything else is a near-disaster.  F. Chuck Todd of NBC News realizes it and made reference to it.  The Quinnipiac poll has Trump and Hillary neck and neck, and the upshot of their poll is that nobody likes either of them.

RUSH: Trump thinks, by the way, that there is a Trump Effect in these polls, much like there is the Wilder Effect, meaning that there are people who do intend to vote for Trump who are not saying so when a pollster calls because they see the way the Drive-Bys treat Trump. They see the way the Drive-Bys react to Trump. They watch people make fun of Trump, this or that, and they don't want to be made fun of or laughed at so they don't tell the truth.  They either say they're not voting or they're voting for Hillary or whatever, but Trump believes he's got a lot more support out there.  And, I must tell you, folks, we were the first to note this possibility right here on the EIB Network.  

RUSH: The Drive-Bys have to tell us, they have to let us know how cosmopolitan they are. They have to share with us the worldliness that they bring to their jobs.  In so doing, they convey how they and they alone are qualified to analyze these events that happened across the globe, whereas you and I, mere plebes, haven't the slightest idea. And part and parcel of being able to explain what's going on in a way that you never could, is having been to Ataturk Airport in Istanbul... Plus, Istanbul, let's all be honest about something, Istanbul is exotic in and of itself because of James Bond movies. Istanbul is a central location for practically every international spy movie or book that's ever been done.
