Donald Trump is 91% certain to win US election’ – Pollster who has successfully predicted elections since 1996 says

One of the most accurate pollsters in US political history has stated that incumbent US president Donald Trump has a 91% chance of holding on to the White House even though most polls put his rival, Joe Biden ahead. Pollster Helmut Norpoth correctly predicted Donald Trump's shock election win back in 2016 and four years later his poll model predicts the Trump will win again.     Norpoth, a professor of political science at New York's Stony Brook University, created his prediction model in 1996 by analysing data from every US election going back to 1912.   The model is based around each candidate's performance in their party's Primary Elections, or Primaries, where Democrats and Republicans voted for who their party's presidential candidate should be. &nb...

Biggie’s crown sells for $595,000 at hip-hop auction

A plastic crown worn by rapper Biggie during a photoshoot just days before his murder has sold at auction for $594,750 in New York. The crown headlined Sotheby's first-ever sale devoted to hip-hop that featured more than 120 lots including jewelry, art and other ephemera of the genre born in the Bronx.

A judge has denied R. Kelly‘s third request for an early release from jail while awaiting trial on charges of sexually abusing young girls. In his third attempt, the disgraced singer claimed he was at high risk of coronavirus because he is prediabetic. US District Judge Ann Donnelly, however, is not convinced that prediabetes presents a “compelling reason for the defendant’s release.”.

US oil price closes at -$37.63/barrel

Oil prices ended New York trading in the negative on Monday for the first time ever, as a supply glut forced traders to pay others to take the commodity. With space to store oil scarce, US benchmark West Texas Intermediate for May delivery ended trading at -$37.63 a barrel ahead of Tuesday’s close for futures contracts — when traders who buy and sell the commodity for profit would have had to take physical posession of it.

You Can Accuse Osinbajo Of Anything But Not Corruption, By Fredrick Nwabufo

You can accuse Vice-President Yemi Osinbajo of being ‘’down-to-earth’’, considering his pint-size. You can also accuse him of intellectual exuberance, but you cannot tack corruption to him. It will not stick. Over the years, the maelstrom of anger against Osinbajo has widened. The reason for this, perhaps, is the perception by some Nigerians that he is not standing up enough for his own – the Christian fold and the south — when it matters. Another reason is the amplification of this perception by some members of the opposition who deploy propaganda to ‘’divisive finale’’. Osinbajo’s faith and calling – as a pastor – are sometimes juxtaposed with allegations of intellectual dishonesty, pretense and of enshrouding the wrongs in the Buhari administration.
