Jonathan Bernstein's morning links.

1. No, Evan McMullin will not be the next president. Dave Hopkins has the apparently necessary explanation.

2. John Patty at Vox on Donald Trump and congressional elections.

3. My Bloomberg View colleague Clive Crook on why referendums don’t work.

4. Paul Waldman speculates about post-election conservatives.

5. At Bloomberg Politics, Kevin Cirilli has a good one on one of the Trump campaign’s disadvantages -- the candidate wouldn’t let his campaign do normal research on its own candidate.
