Interesting interview methinks, where the head of Gallup suggests that the election is going to come down to just pure economics. Since both major candidates are fundamentally (and essentially) creatures of big finance and the war industry, I’ll bet that we’re going to see a lot of faux overtures toward populism (you know things like pork rinds, clearing brush, pick-up trucks with dogs, etc.). The problem is that we’ve got two candidates who look like they’d be more at home at Whole Foods, the Apple Store, or IKEA. So I can’t say that I know how their spin doctors are going to do it.
