    Study: Voters Worried About Political Correctness Flocked to Candidate Trump "Support for Trump (and opposition to Clinton) is especially likely amongst people who feel emotional reactance to restrictive communication norms." Robby Soave | May. 18, 2018 9:15 am In the immediate aftermath of the 2016 election, I suggested that Donald Trump's unlikely victory was partly the result of backlash against political correctness—something the Republican candidate deftly turned to his advantage during both the primaries and the general election. A year and a half later, there's a good amount of evidence supporting this theory. Take this study, produced by a team...
  • Post: Trump voters remain loyal because they feel disrespected

    Monday, the Washington Post surveyed a new book, a memo, and a detailed report for the Post itself, all of which take a look at swing voting patterns in parts of the country that went for President Obama in 2008 and 2012 and then shifted to President Trump in 2016. The Post attempts to synthesize the findings of all three items and concludes that people in these parts of the country feel a lack of respect both for themselves and for the president they voted for: Democratic pollster Stan Greenberg, who helped orchestrate Bill Clinton’s 1992 victory, has obsessively studied...

    A top nonpartisan political crowdfunding site on Tuesday cut ties with its CEO, a Fox News weekend host, and temporarily suspended all fundraising on its platform for Republican candidates. In a Medium.com post, entitled “A stand against Trumpism, a stand for democracy,” Crowdpac, a for-profit website that helps candidates raise money online, announced a series of major changes including the departure of founder and CEO Steve Hilton, acknowledging that his vocal advocacy for President Donald Trump “created a tension within our platform and community.” “We’ve heard from many quarters of the Crowdpac community that, in light of Steve Hilton’s political...

    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...

    When ABC cancelled "Last Man Standing" after its sixth season last year, the show was at the top of its game, with millions of loyal viewers and perched behind only "Modern Family" at the number two ranking among the network’s comedy shows. To say fans were disappointed is an understatement. Although ABC Entertainment president Channing Dungey tried to blame the network’s decision on the show’s high price tag rather than star Tim Allen’s political affiliation or, worse, his support of President Trump, not many were buying it, particularly Allen. "I always wanted "Last Man Standing" to be like ['All in...
  • Reuters Poll: Black Male Approval For Trump Doubles In One Week

    Black male support for President Donald Trump doubled in just one week, according to a Reuters poll on presidential approval. A poll taken on April 22, 2018 had Trump’s approval rating among black men at 11 percent, while the same poll on April 29, 2018 pegged the approval rating at 22 percent. It should be noted that Reuters only sampled slightly under 200 black males each week and slightly under 3,000 people overall. Trump experienced a similar jump in approval among black people overall, spiking from 8.9 percent on April 22 to 16.5 percent on April 29. Black males were...

    I hate to disappoint liberals and the liberal mainstream media. But they haven’t a clue why I voted for President Trump. They either don’t understand…they’re blind, deaf and really dumb…or they’re purposely misrepresenting my views. So, here goes. Here’s why I voted for President Trump (and I think many of the 63 million Trump voters will agree)... Because I’m a member of the 3.8%.Forget the infamous 1% the media loves to quote and discuss. That’s the super rich who the media wants you to resent. That group has no effect on your life. What matters is the 3.8%. A...

    “The problem is that people around the country don’t know it’s an act,” Acosta said of Trump labeling some news outlets “fake news.” “They’re not in on the act and they take what he says very seriously and they take attacks from Sean Spicer and Sarah Sanders and what they do to us on a daily basis very seriously.” He added, “they don’t have all their faculties in come cases — their elevator might not hit all floors.” “My concern is that a journalist is gonna get hurt one of these days,” Acosta concluded.
  • Kanye West to Hot 97's Morning Host Ebro Darden: 'I Love Donald Trump'

    In just a matter of days, Kanye West single-handedly won the hearts of hip-hop purists with his evocative tweets and hearty promises about producing new albums for Pusha T and Nas. On Monday (April 23), West quashed any hopes of him returning back to the "old Kanye" when Hot 97's Ebro Darden revealed that the Chicago lyricist doubled down on his 2016 support for President Trump. "He said, 'I do love Donald Trump,'" Darden said during his conversation on Ebro in the Morning. In the clip, Darden explained how he and West had a conversation over the weekend on a...

    It is sadly common for conservative presidents and political leaders to be portrayed in a less-than-flattering light in the left-leaning textbooks used in public school and college classrooms, but a new volume on American history gives a new spin on the term “rush to judgment.” Less than a year-and-a-half after taking office as America’s sitting president, Donald Trump is already being maligned in the pages of an upcoming high school history text which insinuates that he and his supporters are driven by racism and that he is mentally unfit to serve as our Commander-in-Chief. Textbooks rarely receive a high profile...

    “No one in modern politics, male or female, has had to withstand more indignities, setbacks and cynicism. She developed protective armor that made the real Hillary Clinton an enigma. But if she was guarded about her feelings and opinions, she believed it was in careful pursuit of a dream for generations of Americans: the election of the country’s first woman president.” That would have been the nut graf of The New York Times story about Hillary Clinton’s historic victory that would have run under the headline “Madam President” spread across six front-page columns, according to reporter Amy Chozick’s new book,...

    An ad released Thursday by Hillary Clinton’s campaign makes the case that Donald Trump is the candidate of racists, white supremacists and neo-Nazis. “The reason a lot of Klan members like Donald Trump is because a lot of what he believes, we believe in,” a robed man identified as the Imperial Wizard of the Rebel Brigade Knights of the Ku Klux Klan says at the top of the video, followed by images of a Confederate flag fluttering in the wind, Trump waving after a speech, and a man performing a Hitler salute at what appears to be a Trump rally....

    Although she didn't win on Election Day, Hillary Clinton ran an extremely memorable campaign. There were scandals, feuds, and federal investigations, but the former Secretary of State also made history on multiple occasions. In July, she became the first female presidential nominee for a major party, and in November she became the second most voted-for presidential candidate in the United States after Barack Obama — more than any white man to ever run for president. In addition to breaking glass ceilings, Clinton also left a trail of memorable quotes and moments behind. Clinton has never been a natural performer, which...

    KDKA posted the transcript: Delano: Can we bring back coal jobs as Donald Trump says? Can we bring back steel jobs? Clinton: Well, we can certainly bring back steel jobs because once we really handle the unfair trade practices that have undercut our steel industry causing layoffs and plant closures, we’re going to make it really clear to the rest of the world we’re not sitting by and watching our steel industry go any further down. Delano: But what about coal? Clinton: Coal is a different issue because we’ve got to figure out — is there a technology that can...

    Hillary Clinton has made a string of gaffes as she works to fend off rival Bernie Sanders in a slate of primaries on Tuesday. The first came late last week when the Democratic presidential front-runner applauded Nancy Reagan’s response to HIV and AIDS in the 1980s. Two days later, Clinton touched off a political firestorm when she said, "We're going to put a lot of coal miners and coal companies out of business." And the following day, during a televised town hall Monday night, Clinton said "we didn't lose a single person" in Libya, failing to mention the deadly 2012...

    By her own admission, Hillary Clinton is not a natural politician. In fact, Clinton has been something of a gaffe machine over the last four days, averaging one embarrassing flub per day. Last Friday, Hillary Clinton attended the funeral of a fellow first lady, Nancy Reagan. While discussing her legacy with MSNBC's Andrea Mitchell, Clinton stepped in it by saying that Nancy and her husband had started "a national conversation" about HIV/AIDS. Clinton's comment drew outrage ... [Snip] On Saturday, Clinton jabbed her opponent, socialist Sen. Bernie Sanders (I., Vt.), for being all talk and no action on health care...

    In Hillary Clinton's new book "What Happened" she details the experience of her 2016 campaign, and tries to answer the question posed by the title: what happened that caused her to lose the election? In the book, and in news appearances, Clinton has pinned her loss on several different factors, such as how journalists covered the election, former FBI Director James Comey, and the questions asked at debates. Here are the 16 reasons Hillary says she lost: 1.Herself: In her book, Hillary blames her "damn emails," her remarks about putting coal miners out of business, and calling Trump's supporters "deplorable."...

    "This is me in Scranton,” says the voice of Hillary Clinton over grainy black and white footage of a beaming little girl in a white 1950s dress. “This is where my father was raised and my grandfather worked in the lace mill.” The camera cuts to a shot of a clapboard house, the rustic cottage in the Pennsylvania hills near Scranton where the Rodham family spent every summer. “There was no heat or indoor shower, just the joy of family,” says Mrs Clinton’s voiceover, as the music rises to a crescendo. “I was raised on the American dream . ....

    WASHINGTON – A so-called "sweetheart" deal between Enron Corp. and India – brokered with the help of Clinton administration officials during controversial trade junkets in the mid-'90s – ultimately soured and sped the energy giant's collapse, analysts say. After investing more than $1 billion to help build a huge power plant near Bombay, Enron had problems last year getting paid for power generated by the plant – even after sources say former President Clinton lobbied Indian officials on Enron's behalf during his April visit to India. Desperate, Enron chairman Kenneth L. Lay on Sept. 14 fired off a letter to ...
