Travels of Donald Trump—October 2016

Former Sec. of State Hillary Clinton  |  U.S. Sen. Tim Kaine  ||  Donald Trump  |  Gov. Mike Pence  ||  Former Gov. Gary Johnson  ||  Jill Stein

The month got off to a rough start as stories of Trump's avoidance of paying taxes, sexism and problems with the Trump Foundation filled the news (+).  More bad news hit on Oct. 7 when the Washington Post reported on a 2005 tape of Trump making lewd remarks.  Trump performed well enough in the St. Louis debate to continue, and in the next six days did 11 rallies and a millennial policy speech as well as several fundraisers.  Trump needed a breakthrough performance or maybe a miracle in the final debate in Las Vegas on Oct. 19, but that did not happen.  Trump made a "closing argument" speech on Oct. 22 in Gettysburg, PA, presenting what he called a "Contract with the American Voter."  As the month drew to a close he and his supporters seemed energized by the re-emergence of the Clinton emails story.
