  • What They Told Us: Reviewing Last Week’s Key Polls - Week Ending August 6, 2016

    Americans rely heavily on e-mail and have to take their chances on whether their privacy is protected. Hillary Clinton had the option of using a highly secure e-mail system while secretary of State but opted out: The FBI says there’s a good chance some of that e-mail is in the hands of our enemies, and Democrats ironically now complain that the Russians will be releasing it to influence the coming election.
