The latest thing for the press to glom onto tonight was Donald Trump refusing to say that he would accept election night results if he loses; he said he would decide “that night.” Reference was made back to Trump’s accusations about rigged U.S. elections — As if there has never be en a rigged presidential election in this country. How about that phone call Chicago Mayor Richard J. Daley got from Joe Kennedy saying we need more votes from Cook County?
Issues, well, a few got kicked up when they were asked about their stance on Supreme Court nominations. Hillary Clinton came out in support of Roe vs. Wade and gay marriage, and Trump of course was pro life and Second Amendment. Clinton said she wanted a Supreme Court that would stand up and say no to Citizens United
Was there a winner or a loser tonight? I don’t think so. Nothing was said that would materially affect the election or change a voter’s mind. I am a life long Democrat, and there is no way that I will vote for either presidential candidate.

The election takes place Tuesday, Nov. 8.
Polls in Arkansas will be open from 7:30 a.m. to 7:30 p.m., and persons in line when the polls close will be allowed to vote.
Polls in Missouri will be open from 6 a.m. until 6 p.m.
More than a million people have already taken advantage of early voting.
Early voting in Arkansas starts Oct. 24.
There is no early voting as such in Missouri. However, voters can apply for an absentee ballot for any one of several allowed reasons.
We’ll likely know who the winner is the night of Nov. 8 — if the Electoral College vote isn’t too close.
