    Well, here is an interesting twist I don't think anybody saw coming. And again we have to ask: What is Trump hiding?

    California passes law requiring Trump to release his tax returns in order to be on the primary ballot
    Presidential candidates must submit five years of income-tax filings to be eligible for the state's primary ballot. The law's passage comes amid President Donald Trump's years-long refusal to release his own tax returns because he claims they're under audit. The law will likely be hotly contested in the courts.

    I wonder how many millions of voters feel the same way.

    During the July 30-31 debates, Democrats were so highly critical of Obama and the Affordable Care Act, CNN responded with an op-ed asking "When did Obama become a Republican?" Even Emperor Trump took note, telling his blindly loyal supporters at a rally in Cincinnati, "The Democrats spent more time attacking Obama than they did attacking me, practically. This morning, that's all the fake news is talking about." (Yes, the orange-skinned parrot just had to squawk "Fake news!" yet again.) The Presidential candidates are now claiming, "Aw, shucks, we didn't really mean what we said."

    These two lawsuits filed by Emperor Trump and the Republicans are not surprising. Trump promised to release his taxes. He lied. What is he hiding?

    Bloomberg's Jonathan Bernstein notes that in 2016 many people voted for Trump even though they didn't like him. I can't see that happening again in 2020. The many millions of Americans who despise Trump will vote for the Democratic candidate, whoever that may be.

    Donald Trump should worry about his disapproval rating
    The President's numbers are the lowest in the polling era. That doesn't bode well for his reelection.

    Texas has not had a Democratic Senator since 1994. In 2018, Republican Senator Ted Cruz won reelection but by a narrow 50.9%-48.3% margin over Democratic challenger Beto O'Rourke. Nine Republican Congressmen have announced they will not run for reelection in 2020. Four – Will Hurd, Pete Olson, Kenny Marchant and Mike Conaway – are from Texas. CNN senior writer and political analyst Harry Enten looks at the possibility of Texas "turning blue" in 2020:

    Analysis: Why Texas could go blue in 2020
    Trump is a uniquely unpopular Republican in Texas who seems to be the driver of an important development: Like other Americans, Texans with a college degree are shifting rapidly from red to blue.

    Here is CNN's 17th bi-weekly "power ranking" of the Democratic Presidential candidates. Joe Biden remains the front-runner and Elizabeth Warren has risen to the #2 spot, displacing Kamala Harris. Andrew Yang, #10 on the list, wants to give a monthly $1,000 "Freedom Dividend" to every adult in the US and pay for it by imposing a national value-added tax. Is he serious? His supporters obviously love the idea of "free money" and don't realize how much that "free money" will cost them. Yang's poll numbers and the number of contributors to his campaign have been rising. Yesterday he met the threshold to qualify for the Democratic debates in August and September.

    If a Democrat is elected President in 2020, Democrats would need to pick up four Senate seats to regain a majority. If a Republican is elected, Democrats would need to pick up five seats. CNN's Chris Cillizza explains how the party could benefit if some of the Presidential candidates withdraw from the race and run for Senate instead.

    It's just as well. Would we really want a President whose name sounds like a Dr. Seuss character?

    This latest poll shows Trump would lose in 2020 to Biden. Or Sanders. Or Warren. Or Harris. If the race is between Trump and Biden, 43% who don't really like either candidate would vote for Biden and only 10% would vote for Trump. In other words, they wouldn't be voting for a candidate they like. They'd vote for whichever candidate they dislike less. Is this any way to decide an election?
