  • Are Democrats brave enough to run a woman against Donald Trump?

    Democrats agree that Donald Trump’s history of bragging about groping and assaulting women is unacceptable, but they don’t agree about how to deal with it in 2020. The tension has spilled into the open in the ongoing debate about Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand’s role in galvanizing Senate Democrats to call for Sen. Al Franken to step down over misconduct. Even white college-educated women, Hillary Clinton’s biggest supporters, are divided. “We loved him,” Marsha Pearcy, 58, said sadly to Gillibrand at a private event for professional women in Washington on Tuesday night. Pearcy barely finished saying Franken’s name when quiet murmurs and...

    A company run by former officials at Cambridge Analytica, the political consulting firm brought down by a scandal over how it obtained Facebook users’ private data, has quietly been working for President Donald Trump’s 2020 re-election effort, The Associated Press has learned. The AP confirmed that at least four former Cambridge Analytica employees are affiliated with Data Propria, a new company specializing in voter and consumer targeting work similar to Cambridge Analytica’s efforts before its collapse. The company’s former head of product, Matt Oczkowski, leads the new firm, which also includes Cambridge Analytica’s former chief data scientist. Oczkowski denied a...

    Dear Robert De Niro, Samantha Bee and other Trump haters: I get that you’re angry. I’m angry, too. But anger isn’t a strategy. Sometimes it’s a trap. When you find yourself spewing four-letter words, you’ve fallen into it. You’ve chosen cheap theatrics over the long game, catharsis over cunning. You think you’re raising your fist when you’re really raising a white flag. You’re right that Donald Trump is a dangerous and deeply offensive man, and that restraining and containing him are urgent business. You’re wrong about how to go about doing that, or at least you’re letting your emotions get...

    ...We showed America the silent majority is no longer silent. We’ve made history. We made our hopes, our dreams – our limitless potential – a reality. We created a government that is once again of, by and for the people. But those same forces that tried to stop us during the election are still out to destroy our movement. We must keep fighting the media, Democrats, and the special interests who thrive off of the swamp. Contribute to keep fighting for America.

    Delusional progressives are powerless to stop it. Ineffective never-trump laughingstock are dwindling into oblivion. After every curve-ball has been thrown at him from every conceivable direction, Donald Trump will win 40 states, and do so in a most extraordinary way. He will have made Americans believe in American greatness once again! He already is. In 2006 a full two years prior to his election I was the first to predict that Barack Obama would be elected President. No one believed me, but I based it on five instinctive realities I could see forming. I indicated if as few of three...

    Mitt Romney addressed a closed-door tech summit in Utah on Thursday, telling the room he thinks President Donald Trump -- the man he once called a “phony” and a “fraud” -- will “solidly” win re-election in 2020, reports said. Romney, a former Massachusetts governor, now running for a U.S. Senate seat in Utah, told a group of GOP donors that Trump will “easily” be the party’s nominee and go on to beat his Democratic rival, Politico reported. "I think that not just because of the strong economy and the fact that people are going to see increasingly rising wages, but...

    Cherie DeVille began her professional life as a licensed physical therapist. She was living in Tennessee when, at 32 years old, she decided that it was time for an "exciting and outside the box" opportunity. She flew to California and became a porn star. DeVille, now 39, shoots approximately 200 scenes a year, likening the excitement of her performances to sky-diving. But she says she’s interested in another unlikely career change, this time entering politics to become president of the United States. “I really do believe that I can do this and that I can do this well,” DeVille told...

Nancy Pelosi , with a multi-multimillion dollar net worth, it is time for you to open up your home to the treacherous MS-13 gang members your heart breaks for. Rep. Maxine Waters , it is time for you to sell your multimillion dollar mansion and move into the district you supposedly represent. Sen. Chuck Schumer , keep up your "I'm against anything President Trump supports" mantra. And to the Democratic leaders in general, please keep supporting the illegals on the...

    The campaign manager for Bernie Sanders in his 2016 presidential run hinted that the Independent senator from Vermont may run for the White House again in 2020. Sanders is “considering another run for the presidency,” but for now is completely focused on his congressional re-election campaign in November, Jeff Weavers said in an interview with C-Span host John McArdle on Monday. Sanders made waves as the progressive who consistently challenged former secretary of state Hillary Clinton in his 2016 primary bid. His platform largely focused on issues like universal healthcare and income equality. When Sanders announced his candidacy for president...

    Longtime Trump confidant Roger Stone pledged to have someone lined up to challenge Vice President Mike Pence should he run for president in 2020. During an interview Friday with Big League Politics, a right-wing news website, Stone suggested that President Trump may not ultimately run for re-election if his first term is adequately successful and denounced the possibility of a 2020 ticket with Pence and U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley. "I guarantee you I will have a candidate challenge Mike Pence," said while speaking on the "Howley Reports" show. Stone derided Pence as a "establishment Republican quisling"...

    The Washington Post ^ | May 15, 2018 | Philip Bump
    Shortly before the 2016 presidential election, Donald Trump’s communications adviser Jason Miller proclaimed that both Michigan and New Mexico were in play. In both states, Miller said, internal polls showed a “dead heat,” and he predicted that campaigning in both places would spike. In Michigan, of course, that prediction was borne out. Trump won the state by the skin of his teeth, 11,000 votes. In New Mexico, though, he got blown out, losing by eight percentage points. This story seems pertinent now because of another prediction by another Trump campaign staff member focused on a different election. According to Axios,...

    Division in a political party can be a blessing or a curse. And sometimes, it can be both. In the Democratic Party's struggle to retake the House of Representatives in November 2018, division is a very good thing indeed. But whether it will remain so as the party tries to defeat President Trump's presumed bid for re-election in 2020 is another matter entirely. First, the good news for Dems: Less than six months out from the midterm elections, lack of consensus about the future direction of the party allows the Democrats to adapt to regional and ideological differences in the...

    While President Donald Trump‘s election left much of the country in shock, Trevor Noah says the public doesn’t realize just how influential he and his voting base have become. In fact, Noah thinks we should be expecting a second Trump term. Speaking to CNN’s Brian Stelter in an interview that aired Sunday, the Daily Show host said voters have miscalculated the rise of far-right politics and its potential to grow. “I think people underestimate how laser-focused Trump and his supporters are,” he said, discussing the possibility of re-election. “I think people also underestimate how many people in America are willing...

    CONCORD, N.H. – New Hampshire Democratic Party Chairman Ray Buckley says his phone’s ringing off the hook with calls from likely White House contenders. “There are so many potential contenders wanting to come up for our events, it’s just mind-blowing, the activity,” he told Fox News. Several potential Democratic presidential candidates are making trips this weekend to the state that traditionally holds the first primary on the road to the White House -- part of a wave of hopefuls taking advantage of the expectation that Hillary Clinton, who kept young candidates on the sidelines last time, is politically finished. One...

    The New Republic ^ | February 26th, 2018 | By Graham Vyse
    To many political observers over the past year, the prospect of President Donald Trump’s reelection looked doubtful at best. Former White House chief strategist Steve Bannon reportedly gave Trump a 30 percent chance of finishing his term. These predictions were understandable. In 2017, it seemed, every day brought another Trump scandal, a bombshell in the Russia story, a brawl in the White House, or a diplomatic crisis, which explains why Trump’s approval rating last year was a historic low for a president’s first year in office. By year’s end, Democrats were anticipating a sweeping victory in this year’s midterm elections,...

    NBC's THINK ^ | May 3, 2018 | Scott Lemieux
    Nearly two years after the election of President Donald Trump, a comforting, yet dangerous, fantasy pervades liberal thought about the 2016 race: That Hillary Clinton not only could’ve won, had she made modestly different choices and that, by all rights, nearly any other Democrat could’ve beaten Trump. As New York Times reporter Amy Chozick (echoing numerous other pundits) describes it in her new book about the campaign, it should have been a cakewalk — the “most winnable” race ever This is a comforting thought for Democrats in the Trump era, because it means that, if they merely run a different...

    The political future of President Donald Trump and the Republican Party over the next two years really comes down to one question: Do traditional measures of popularity mean anything when it comes to Trump? If they do, the Republican Party and Trump could be in major trouble. Usually, we wouldn't even think to ask whether a president with around a 40% approval rating would end up hurting his political party. Yet Trump did something that was seemingly impossible in 2016: He won the presidency, despite being the most unpopular candidate since at least 1952 and with Americans seeming to like...
