Science Explains Why Narcissistic Jerks are More Likely to Be Successful

"Respondents also provided their leadership position and pre-tax monthly salaries..."

So, did the guys doing the study take the time to verify the incomes and career history of the people they surveyed?

Because I can think of an alternate explanation as to why narcissists would report higher earnings and career attainment...

"Trump also said that the National Enquirer, which published the bizarre and totally unsubstantiated story about Rafael Cruz and Oswald, should win a Pulitzer Prize."

That will happen right about the same time Trump wins the Nobel Peace Prize.

He didn't say The National Enquirer should win a Pulitzer Prize for an expose on Cruz' father, he quoted several stories on different issues that the magazine had run and said He "didn't know why they hadn't won a Pulitzer. They should have won a Pulitzer." And as for the Nobel Peace Prize being won by someone unqualified for it, as memory serves, Obama was given the prize for, apparently getting elected US President. He hadn't done anything else when he was awarded the prize.

Actually, he did:

“This was a magazine that, in many respects, is respected. They got OJ [Simpson], they got [John] Edwards, THEY GOT THIS. If that was The New York Times, they would have gotten Pulitzers for their reporting."

Trump mentions three stories that merited the Pulitzer. "THIS" refers to the Cruz story.

"Gent": I'd offer you a tip. Never believe the talking points from either Fox News or the Trump campaign. I don't believe I've seen a single case yet - not one - when they have ever been right. They serve the same function as defense lawyers with a guilty client who won't plea out. They have to say something, so they just make up some crap that the masses might believe because they don't bother to check the facts.

As for Obama winning the Peace Prize, there's no question that he didn't deserve it, but that has nothing to do with why Trump can never win. The prize is awarded to people with a certain internationalist point of view. Trump is not their kind of guy, which is the reason he'd never win the prize, even in the unlikely event that he did something to deserve it.


RealClearPolitics - Election 2016 - General Election: Trump vs. Clinton

There are two recent polls of likely voters. Rasmussen shows Trump up by one. The LA Times calls it a dead heat.

The recent polls of all REGISTERED voters show Hillary up by a pretty consistent 4. It's too early to draw any conclusions, and polls are traditionally influenced by conventions, but one thing that seems clear right now is that Hillary would only win today if she could get all the people that prefer her to the polls. It does little good to be preferred by registered voters unlikely to vote.

Worth noting, the current spate of tightening of the race looks to have started on or very shortly after July 7th, ie. the Dallas shootings.

Unless shootings of police officers at BLM protests become a regular occurrence, I suspect we're looking at an ephemeral Trump bounce that will fade away as the shootings slip out of the popular consciousness in the next month or two.

I guess he probably understood the "queen" portion of the name. Maybe the "dairy" wasn't as clear.
