Donald Trump will probably lose the election. As I write, The Economist says he has only an 8% chance of winning. Nate Silver’s FiveThirtyEight, which came closest to predicting Trump’s win in 2016, and has the best track record among modelers, gives Trump just a 12% chance.

Lots of people pitch tents or park trailers at a place called Maurice’s. A short bike ride away is a much-larger campground that’s almost entirely empty.
