Let’s put at 2.5 the early over- under on how many points the New York attorney general has handed Donald Trump. That’s not many, but it might be plenty to make the fateful difference Nov. 3, considering that the presidential race again could come down to a fraction of a point in three or four

In 2016 the powerful National Rifle Association (NRA), a registered charity that promotes gun rights, spent $30 million helping elect Donald Trump, and close to $70 million on ads and voter mobilisation drives.
