— A Trump-Clinton donor divide: Home values – DENNIS RODKIN  (FROM THE ARTICLE: Among Clinton donors here, the median home value is just under $547,000, about 29 percent higher than the $425,000 median value of Trump donors’ homes.  Are Cinton donors limousine liberals?  SEE: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Limousine_liberal)
http://www.chicagobusiness.com/realestate/20161108/CRED0701/161109860/a-trump-clinton-donor-divide-home-values
(FROM THE ARTICLE: If there are Clinton victory parties tonight in Chicago, they’re likely to be in nicer homes than celebrations for a Trump win. The median home value for a Chicago-area donor to Democrat Hillary Clinton’s campaign is almost one-third higher than the median for donors to Republican Donald Trump, according to research from the University of Chicago. Among Clinton donors here, the median home value is just under $547,000, about 29 percent higher than the $425,000 median value of Trump donors’ homes, according to Tania Diaz Bazan, a researcher and writer at the Stigler Center of the University of Chicago Booth School of Business. Diaz Bazan compiled the Chicago figures exclusively yesterday for Crain’s on the eve of today’s election. “Wealthier donors prefer Hillary Clinton,” Diaz Bazan said. Home value, she noted, “is a proxy for wealth,” though of course a home may not be the only asset a donor may have. “What we see at least is that Clinton donors prefer living in expensive houses more than Trump donors,” she said. In a state that leans heavily toward Clinton, Diaz Bazan had far more data on donors to the Democratic candidate. Her database included 10,304 Chicago-area Clinton donors and just 1,500 for Trump. But she said the Trump data was enough to be reliable and that the results “follow the same pattern as the national data.”)
— Like the Cubs, Chicago can come back from behind – KAM BUCKNER  (DIERSEN: Are you behind?  According to my critics/opponents, their operatives, and their dupes, I have been behind since 1973 when I did not make GS-13 (currently $92,632) by age 25 and I fell further behind when I did not make GS-14 (currently $109,463) by age 30, GS-15 (currently $128,759) by age 35, and Senior Executive Service (currently $160,300) by age 40.  How much were you earning in today’s dollars when you were 25, 30, 35, and 40?)

Ever-increasingly, Democrats side with illegals against Americans.)
