Where do things stand in the presidential race with two weeks to go until Election Day? Why have the polling averages been so stable even as events have been tumultuous? To discuss, we’re delighted to welcome back veteran Republican operative and frequent guest, Mike Murphy who has been sharing his wisdom, insight, and humor with us throughout the whole campaign. Murphy analyzes the dynamics of the race, why today it looks so favorable to Biden, and what might happen on Election Day and after. Kristol and Biden also discuss possible paths forward for the Republican Party if President Trump loses the election.

    If anything pushed me even partially into the Trump camp, it has been the relentless, nasty, smug preening NeverTrumpism of Mike Murphy, from the “Radio Free GOP” days to now.

    At least Kristol used to be a conservative, although a conservative of a certain type who made some really bad predictions once in awhile.

    Mike Murphy always seemed to hitch his wagon to the most liberal viable Republican with a bank account. He was like a pitcher with one pitch, always force the Republican candidate to move further to the left as the conservatives would have to other place to go.

    At least Kristol used to be a conservative, . . .

    I don’t make that assumption. Like his partner Charlie Sykes, he went where the money was. If he had to pretend to believe conservative things to tap into the donor class, he did. Now he’s got that delicious left-wing money to fuel his little webzine. He and Charlie are to politics what Robert Tilton and Jimmy Swaggart were to Christianity. Frauds.
