Newsday’s Hillary-obsessed reporter Glenn Thrush, who had spent some time recently reporting out of Washington, is back in City Hall today, instantly doubling the number of reporters working in Room 4a.
He says that comparing Hillary’s margin of victory this year to Chuck Schumer’s legendary 71% is a steaming pile of, um, misguided analysis. That’s because Schumer was never a target of Republican rage the way Hillary has been for years. So the question today really isn’t if Hillary hits the high mark, but rather whether she avoids some designated low mark of about 60 percent.
We’ll see tomorrow who else sees it that way.
