AS HE’S CURRENTLY POLLING, Donald Trump doesn’t have much of a chance of winning the Presidency. Nate Silver puts his chances of winning at 13.3% at the time of this writing, with Hillary in the lead in all of the major swing states. And considering his inability to go even a single day without being truly awful, it doesn’t seem likely that he’ll be rebounding in the final weeks of the campaign.
There’s no reason for complacency here: earlier this year in the UK, many people weren’t concerned about odds of losing the upcoming Brexit vote, so they stayed at home, and Brexit passed. We’re not out of the woods. But we do need to start thinking about what America beyond November 8th looks like. And the question a lot of my progressive friends are asking is this:
How can we go on knowing that so many of our family and friends voted for such an indecent man?
