Trump Is In Fourth Place Among Black Voters

From FiveThirtyEight:

It wasn’t that long ago that Donald Trump liked to boast about his support from black voters. And although Trump had a history of controversy on issues of race, it wasn’t that crazy to think he could at least outperform the GOP’s last two presidential nominees, John McCain and Mitt Romney, with black voters. After all, McCain and Romney were polling at less than 5 percent among black voters after their conventions, and Trump isn’t facing off against the first black presidential nominee of a major party.

But Trump is polling worse among black voters than almost every single Republican presidential nominee since 1948 in polls taken between the party conventions and Election Day.

Trump is currently in fourth place among black voters. You read that correctly: He’s trailing Hillary Clinton, Libertarian Gary Johnson and Green Party nominee Jill Stein.

Paternoster: Eastern Europe’s ‘Elevator of Death’

I take a ride on a paternoster, an old school type of elevator consisting of a series of constantly moving “shelves” with open fronts. Passengers just step on and off the revolving “shelves” as they wish. A dozen or so are still in use in Prague — quite a few, it turns out, throughout Europe. The one I rode in is in the Lucerna Pasaz in central Prague. According to Wikipedia, five people have died in paternosters since 1970.
