    The key to effective political communication is to say a particular thing to a particular audience. It’s easy but expensive to say a general thing to a lot of people: That’s the role of an ad on CBS during a prime-time show. It’s expensive to say a specific thing to a lot of people: That’s an ad targeting a specific cable channel. It’s quite expensive to say a particular thing to a particular audience — and it can be very expensive to make a precise argument to a particular voter.

    There’s no real question that if the Affordable Care Act is repealed the number of Americans without insurance coverage will increase. According to the Congressional Budget Office, the percentage of those under age 65 who can’t afford or opt out of coverage would jump to 18 percent by 2026 under the Republican health-care bill under consideration in the Senate, with the total number of uninsured jumping from about 28 million (under Obamacare) to 49 million — an increase of about 22 million. The size of that increase is subject to debate, but there’s no real question it will be greater than zero.

    “Public” is a spectrum. A Super Bowl telecast is public, and a hundred million people watch it. The site PetitTube specializes in the other end of the spectrum: Public YouTube videos that have never been watched by anyone. Every time you go to that site, the video you’re shown has never been watched. Like the Super Bowl, it’s public. Unlike the Super Bowl, it’s unseen.

    It’s been less than a week since America first learned of the existence of an email that seemed to clearly demonstrate the willingness of some in the Trump campaign to accept the assistance of the Russian government in their effort to win the 2016 presidential race. In black and white, Donald Trump Jr. is offered the opportunity to meet with a lawyer connected to the Russian government who can provide “documents and information that would incriminate” Hillary Clinton. That information, Trump Jr. is told, “is part of Russia and its government’s support for Mr. Trump.”

    It’s much easier to deal with poverty if you can convince yourself that the impoverished brought it on themselves. Nearly everyone would concur that those who suffer from poverty through no fault of their own deserve support from others, either through nonprofit or public sector assistance. But if they’re poor because of their own bad decisions? They have to fend for themselves.

    As part of the Guardian's coverage of the 2016 election, reporter Paul Lewis traveled to Mahoning County in the northeastern part of Ohio to figure out why Donald Trump was appealing to working-class white voters in this traditionally Democratic area. He landed an interview with the county's Trump campaign chair, Kathy Miller, a former trustee of the town of Boardman who volunteers her time to get Trump elected and who will serve as an elector if Trump wins.
