If you’re a single Trump supporter looking for love, TrumpSingles promises to “make dating great again.” I’m not one to knock online dating sites since I met my husband on the interwebs, but candidate-centric dating is just a tad bizarre and probably not a recipe for relationship success.

Ballotpedia is one of our favorite reference websites. It is like Wikipedia for politics, but more in-depth and reliable. Ballotpedia just released a statistical analysis of federal judicial vacancies as Trump enters office, and likely to become available during his term.
