Indian Country politics and public policy

Commentary by Mark Trahant

I am catching up on grading papers … and working on these stories. I really want to explain why polling is so ineffective for Indian Country. (More evidence that Indian Country ought to have our own primary.)

** Folks say Clinton, or Sanders, will easily defeat Trump. Problem is we have no idea what a general election will look like because Trump is not a Republican. He’s a populist. (I think I’ll go back and look at elections with other populists running.) But one area that Trump could be a factor is Congress. There are some seats that will be in play with Trump heading the Republican ticket. Enough for 30 seats? Time to do some math. — Mark
