The historian Pierre Rosanvallon regrets that “many genuine democrats hate populism but fail to understand its deep roots.” It is not enough to protest the consequences of populism, he told me; you also need self-criticism. And Mrs. Clinton, he noted, has not been particularly good at self-criticism.

I successfully predicted Brexit and Trump this year. Have to say, Le Pen's chances are slightly worse than Trump's.

I am not going to make a bet at 40+% implied probability.
