If being hateful, or at least fearful, is core to our public discussion, then love should be, too. Every ying deserves its yang, especially one that works. After years of working on poverty and inequality, I know that love works.
So hold onto your horses. It's going to be a wild ride from here until November. But in the process, the whole psychology of the 2016 voting public will be exposed, and the opportunity for fundamental change will be up for grabs.

Social media data is front and center in our national debates, but few understand how these share of voice charts are calculated. Twitter and Google use keywords to filter the data, but if the keywords are not inputted correctly, the share of voice will not be accurate.
Hillary knows that the disastrous legislation, the Commodity Futures Modernization Act (CFMA), had nothing to do with Sanders and everything to do with then-President Bill Clinton, who devoted his presidency to sucking up to Wall Street. Clinton signed this bill into law as a lame-duck president, ensuring his wife would have massive Wall Street contributions for her Senate run.

Those who ideologically opposed the negotiations with Iran on the nuclear issue have been proven wrong. Diplomacy works and the results are a clear su...
Trump: He could have made a lot more money, A LOT more money if he hadn't been so weird. I don't get the gay thing but he did marry a supermodel, and I respect that.
