University of Florida professor Michael McDonald: After a historic week of early voting in the United States, it is time to take stock of where we are. Sundays are typically a slow day for states to report early voting activity, which gives me a moment to reflect on the prior week.

And he was open about why: Trump wants a new justice in place to ensure election-related cases are decided in his favor. read more
