    Sunday, Feb 7, 2016 08:01 PM +0900 It’s almost over for Hillary: This election is a mass insurrection against a rigged system Sanders has ended the coronation and fired up the grass roots. Now Clinton's electability argument is crumbling too Bill Curry It would be hard to overstate what Bernie Sanders has already achieved in his campaign for president, or the obstacles he’s had to surmount in order to achieve it. Not only has he turned a planned Hillary Clinton coronation into an exercise in grass-roots democracy, he’s reset the terms of the debate. We are edging closer to the...

    PPP’s newest national poll finds the race on the Republican side tightening considerably in the wake of Donald Trump’s surprise loss in Iowa on Monday night. Trump’s lead has fallen to just 4 points- he’s at 25% to 21% each for Ted Cruz and Marco Rubio, 11% for Ben Carson, 5% each for Jeb Bush, John Kasich, and the now departed Rand Paul, 3% each for Chris Christie and Carly Fiorina, and 1% for Jim Gilmore. Rick Santorum had literally zero supporters on our final poll including him.

    Hillary Clinton agrees there is still a "vast right-wing conspiracy" and if anything it has only become more richly financed. During the New Hampshire town hall debate on Wednesday night, CNN host Anderson Cooper asked Clinton if she still believes there is a "vast right-wing conspiracy" as she said there was during the late 90s to initially explain the Monica Lewinksy scandal. "Don't you?" Clinton replied, as the audience laughed. "Yeah. It's gotten even better funded." "They brought in some new multibillionaires to pump the money in. Look, these guys play for keeps.

    Bernie Sanders is 74. He grew up playing stickball in the streets of Brooklyn and watching a black-and-white television. Yet this child of the 1940s, who says Franklin D. Roosevelt is his favorite president, has inspired a potent political movement among young people today. Young voters' support for Mr. Sanders has created a quandary in Hillary Clinton's campaign headquarters in Brooklyn, where millennial staff members have tried to persuade their peers to back the former first lady. The discomfort, and, in some cases hostility, toward Mrs. Clinton among young voters is striking. Some of them, feeling the pinch of economic...

    Speaker Paul Ryan and House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy met privately with Rep. Jason Chaffetz Wednesday evening to reiterate that he cannot proceed with any investigation that involves Hillary Clinton, according to multiple sources familiar with the meeting. The impetus for the gathering was a POLITICO story where Chaffetz, the chairman, of the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee, was quoted as saying that a pending probe into government record keeping practices would not be "specifically trying to target the secretary, but when she creates her own private email system, she's ensnarled herself.” Presented with the quote before publication, House...

    There's a reason why Donald Trump is taking his loss in Iowa so hard - it's been devastating to his national standing. His standing in the polls might already be falling like a rock, and now it appears that the rolling concert tour that was his national campaign might be coming to an end. Now comes pretty convincing evidence that his crowds are shrinking, and he's trying to hide it (poorly). Trump was in Little Rock last night, and he tweeted a picture that seemed to show a typical Trump full house, and that specifically claimed that the crowd was...

That makes some righty poll-watchers nervous since PPP’s credibility has been attacked in the past. Not only are they liberal, they were the subject of a famous critique of their methodology by Nate Cohn in TNR a few years ago. If you’re looking to throw out this result, which no other...

    I want to start with a few key facts, because they'll be important in a moment: 1. Among left-leaning female voters under the age of 45, Bernie Sanders holds a significant lead in the polls. 2. He's received far more donations from females than Hillary Clinton. 3. The results in Iowa showed that he won handily in the under-45 category, regardless of whether the voter was male or female. As it happens, there is absolutely a gap in support when it comes to Sanders and Clinton. But it's not a gender gap-it's an age gap. ....It's simple: Older people vote...

    Hillary Clinton's presidential campaign Tuesday rolled out a plan to increase building energy efficiency standards as a way to cut emissions and save on energy costs. The plan, her campaign said Tuesday, looks to improve building codes, provide more information about buildings' energy usage and expand appliance energy labeling as ways to reduce energy consumption. The proposal would save households and businesses $70 billion, or $600 per household, annually if implemented, Clinton's campaign said, and reduce taxpayer spending on energy in federal buildings by $8 billion. Its goal is a one-third reduction in energy waste within ten years. The far-reaching...

He had recently abstained in a vote on Senate Resolution 498, which expressed support for Israel defending itself against "unprovoked rocket attacks" from Hamas.

  • Sanders rally chant: 'She's a liar!'

    DES MOINES, Iowa — The room at Bernie Sanders' rally here turned ice cold when Hillary Clinton's speech took over the televisions here. The crowd booed loudly at first, then cheered when the sound cut out. The sound soon returned and Clinton was drowned out by further boos when she said "I'm a progressive who gets things done." It escalated from there: Chants of "She's a liar!" took over the room before the campaign just entirely shut off the stream, cutting away from MSNBC entirely.

    FiveThirtyEight provides two projections for each race: A "polls-only" model that is based solely on public polling within a particular state, and a "polls-plus" model that additionally factors in national polling and endorsements from sitting governors and members of Congress. Looking at the Monday-night Iowa caucuses, the two models are more or less in agreement about each party's favorites: businessman Donald Trump and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton. In the Republican race, the polls-plus model gives Trump a 46% chance of winning, compared with 39% for Sen. Ted Cruz of Texas, 14% for Sen. Marco Rubio of Florida, and...

    MSNBC's Andrea Mitchell predicted Monday that there will be "protests on the Democratic side" and that there will be a "legal challenge" to the Iowa caucus results. [Snip] "If I had to bet I would bet Bernie by just a little bit only because Hillary underperformed so badly here eight years ago." Mitchell then predicted, "I think there are going to be protests on the Democratic side. You're going to have a legal challenge."

    If you want Chris Matthews to change his mind, just wait a minute. In just over a minute on Morning Joe today, Matthews changed his election prediction from agreeing with Joe Scarborough that Trump would win and that Bernie Sanders would squeak out a victory to changing his prediction to a win by Hillary Clinton. However, the most fascinating part of his quick change of prediction was his frozen face when put on the spot by Scarborough as weird undulations played out over the surface. A body language expert could have a field day analyzing what was going through the...

    It's remarkable how absolutely nobody is willing to state the obvious: that Iowa tonight could actually end Clinton's campaign for the White House. One of the unique characteristics of a "high water mark" is that you don't recognize it until AFTER the water has begun to recede.

    The State Department is lying when it says it didn’t know until it was too late that Hillary Clinton was improperly using personal emails and a private server to conduct official business — because it never set up an agency email address for her in the first place, the department’s former top watchdog says. “This was all planned in advance” to skirt rules governing federal records management, said Howard J. Krongard, who served as the agency’s inspector general from 2005 to 2008. The Harvard-educated lawyer points out that, from Day One, Clinton was never assigned and never used a state.gov...

    I was watching some of the Iowa interviews coming out of Senator Joni Ernst’s event on CNN this morning where several presidential hopefuls were strutting their stuff for primary voters. None of them really jumped out at me, but the interview by Dana Bash with the senator herself was definitely worth the price of admission. The reason dates back to last October when Hillary Clinton decided to dip a toe into the Iowa senate race in support of Democrat candidate Bruce Braley. The subject wasn’t anything to do with the issues of the day, but yet another ride on the...

    LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (AP) - Three people were fatally shot over the course of a day in Little Rock, including a mother who was holding her young daughter while she was struck, police said Sunday. The killings bring to five the number of homicides in the city so far this year, the Arkansas Democrat-Gazette reported. Little Rock police spokesman Lt. Steve McClanahan said 19-year-old Junius Pitts Jr. died early Sunday morning after being shot while apparently sitting in his car at a red light near the University of Arkansas at Little Rock campus. A witness who was in the car...
