First Read: Breaking Down Trump's Brutal June


Let us count the ways in which Donald Trump lost/squandered the month of June in his race against Hillary Clinton:

1.The polls: Trump now trails Clinton by six points nationally in the RealClearPolitics average, when Clinton's lead had been just one point in late May.

2.The money: He had just $1.3 million in the bank, according to the last campaign-finance report, versus $42 million for Clinton.

3.The ads: For the month, Clinton and her allies outspent Team Trump over the battleground-state airwaves, $26 million to $0, though the NRA starts spending $2 million on Trump's behalf in battlegrounds starting today (more on that below).

S&P Global Ratings on Monday downgraded the United Kingdom's credit rating to "AA" from "AAA", with a "negative" outlook on the country.

The downgrade from the highest rating awarded by the agency comes following the UK's surprising vote to leave the European Union last week.

Organizers of the effort held their second weekly conference call Sunday night.

Former Bogota, New Jersey, Mayor Steve Lonegan, a Ted Cruz supporter and spokesman for a super PAC backing the effort, said he plans to hire East, West and Central regional field directors to begin building a "comprehensive list of every single delegate" to get to know their interests and issues.

Brexit crash wiped out a record $2.1 trillion. Now what?

Source: CNN

A record $2.1 trillion was wiped out from global markets on Friday.

That means more money vaporized as a result of the Brexit crash than any single market day ever, according to S&P Dow Jones Indices.

It eclipses the $1.9 trillion that was erased on September 29, 2008 when the U.S. Congress infamously voted down the Wall Street bailout. The larger losses in the Brexit fallout partially reflect the fact that markets are retreating from higher levels these days.
