Headline: “Trump highly competitive in key states a year before the election.”

It’s a profoundly disturbing commentary on our country that this is the case. No informed person of good will would vote for Trump. Surely, a large majority of prospective voters –- I would think at least three-quarters –- are persons of good will. The relentless stream of propaganda disseminated by Trump, his lackeys, and Fox News and other right-wing media outlets have poisoned the minds of tens of millions. The prognosis for American democracy is guarded. It’s touch and go whether it will survive.
