    Hillary Clinton’s campaign is touting some “eye-popping” advantages in early voting, in an apparent effort to energize Democratic voters, but preliminary figures suggest the race remains tighter than her aides acknowledge. The preliminary numbers appear to show Clinton, the Democratic presidential nominee, with an edge in several of the roughly 10 battleground states that will decide the 2016 White House race. “We're seeing eye-popping vote-by-mail application numbers,” Clinton campaign manager Robby Mook said on “Fox News Sunday.” In Arizona and North Carolina, for example, more registered Democrats than Republicans have indeed cast early ballots. But such numbers are open to...

Republicans added hundreds of thousands of voters to the rolls since 2012 in states including Florida and Arizona, and narrowed the gap in North Carolina, according to data compiled by The Associated Press. In Iowa, Republicans prevented Democrats from surpassing them, aided by a court ruling upholding a ban on voting by ex-felons, who often register as Democrats.

The September 2016 Battleground Poll shows that 54% of all Americans are self-identified conservatives and only 38% are self-identified liberals, which means that if the tiny "moderate" 3% and the equally tiny "unsure/refused" 4% are excluded, then the conservative candidate would beat the liberal candidate by a landslide of...

    When... Donald Trump said he loved the people of Arizona... he probably wasn't talking about Senator Jeff Flake... [Trump tweeted]: The Great State of Arizona, where I just had a massive rally (amazing people), has a very weak and ineffective Senator, Jeff Flake. Sad!
  • John McCain wins his primary, promptly gives up on Donald Trump

    Literally one day after winning his primary, Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) gave up on Donald Trump. In fact, McCain now sounds a bit like he's betting on Trump losing — or, at least, looking like a loser for the rest of the campaign season — to help him win a sixth term in the Senate. In a gauzy, five-minute YouTube video released Wednesday, McCain looks directly at the camera and says: "My opponent, Representative Ann Kirkpatrick, is a good person. But if Hillary Clinton is elected president, Arizona will need a senator who will act as a check — not...

    Here’s what Mr. Trump offered in a plan for fighting illegal immigration: • Build the wall. • End the catch and release policy for undocumented immigrants and instead return them to their country of origin. • Have zero tolerance for undocumented immigrants who have committed a crime, and deport them. • Triple the number of deportation officers at the department of Immigration and Customs Enforcement. • Repeal President Obama’s executive orders that temporarily protected undocumented immigrants from deportation and authorized them to receive work permit • Stop issuing visas to any country where “adequate screening cannot occur” that might endanger...
  • "Softening?" Trump Offers Details About the Wall in Highly Anticipated Immigration Speech

    GOP nominee Donald Trump did not give a rally speech Wednesday night in Phoenix, Arizona. He offered a detailed policy speech to the crowd about his immigration policy. Pretty early on, it was evident those media reports about a “softening” of his immigration plan were way off base. A few hours before his address, Trump met Mexican President Enrique Peña Nieto in Mexico, where the two offered a cordial joint press conference to reporters. We want to “build a fair relationship between the two countries,” Trump said in Phoenix. Both countries are going to win as a result of his plan,...
  • Trump: Immigration Must Serve America's Interests

    America’s immigration policies must promote “the well-being of the American people,” not the interests of the open-borders lobby, America-hating Islamists, and those who violate the nation’s laws, Donald Trump declared last night. America cannot continue to be the dumping ground for all the world’s problems, was what the Republican candidate for president implied in his address in Phoenix, Ariz., last night. The truth is, the central issue is not the needs of the 11 million illegal immigrants or however many there may be … but whatever the number, that's never really been the central issue. It will never be a...

    Donald Trump trumpeted such a tough message on illegal immigration Wednesday night that hardliner Ann Coulter said that she would listen to the speech every night. "I think I'll watch this speech every night before going to bed so that I will sleep like a baby," Coulter tweeted Wednesday night during Trump's major immigration policy speech in Phoenix, Ariz. "I hear Churchill had a nice turn of phrase, but Trump's immigration speech is the most magnificent speech ever given." Coulter got worried when Trump said recently that he was considering a "softening" his stance on illegal immigrants; but her fears...
