    Fox News is opening its 5 p.m. debate to all the announced Republican candidates who fail to make the cut for the Aug. 6 prime-time event, removing a requirement that participants reach at least 1 percent in polling. The change amounts to an insurance policy for candidates who were in danger of being disqualified from the vital first debate based on low polls – Carly Fiorina, former New York Gov. George Pataki and Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.).The announcement by Michael Clemente, Fox News Executive Vice President, News, means that all 16 announced candidates will qualify for Cleveland — either the...

    Pataki, Christie, Perry, Graham, Santorum ... let's be honest, none of these guys has any chance of winning the Republican nomination. Zero. (They're all bland, boring, and politically correct.) In fact, any of them will be lucky just to make the "top 10" cut. So what's their motivation? Cabinet position? (Like Lindsay Graham is gonna talk Trump into making him Secretary of Defense in exchange for his 1% of the voters??) Or are they GOP-e suicide moles being pushed only to take out any non-approved frontrunner? Designated troublemakers?

    The professional hand-wringers are freaking out over Donald Trump's straight talk while displaying abysmal indifference to the deserved targets of Trump's charges. The United States is incinerating, but all they can think about is Trump's heated rhetoric. Trump is resonating because, as a presidential candidate, he is giving public voice to many of the concerns that have Americans beside themselves. Some commentators have called attention to these issues for years, but it's different when a candidate does it, especially a Republican candidate. Democratic candidates have no fear of making controversial statements or even of taking extreme positions, because the liberal...

    Candidates, By the Book Recently Senator Ted Cruz and the New York Times engaged in a hot debate over how many books the senator had sold---Cruz won that debate and his book appeared on the Times bestseller list. But it underscored the reality that the more than a dozen presidential candidates have almost all used a book as “coming-out” biography to fuel their campaigns. Whether it was Barack Obama’s The Audacity of Hope or George W. Bush’s A Charge to Keep, the biography has been a favored mechanism for political candidates to introduce themselves to the public.

First Sen. John McCain (R-AZ)43% ran to the Left-wing New Yorker to attack 15,000 GOP base voters as “crazies.” Wednesday, the GOP Establishment went even further.

    Yes, Trump's presidential campaign is a racist clownshow. And no, polls from July 2015 don't say very much about who will be president... But there's more to Trump's burgeoning popularity than immigrant-bashing alone. He's running as a full-blown plutocrat populist, and populism is, well, popular -- especially after a grinding recession. That should be concerning to his 2016 opponents, since the platform Trump has outlined on the trail has a long and successful history in American politics. "All I want to do is make us rich, save your Social Security, [and] stop having everyone rip us off!" Trump said to...

    Korbin Forrister, a 22-year-old race car driver from Georgia, has developed an interest in politics the past couple of years. At the Camping World Truck Series race Wednesday night at Eldora Speedway, he will combine those two passions. Forrister, who didn't have a sponsor for the race, decided to decal the SS Green Light Racing No. 08 truck with "Trump For President" -- the first but likely not the last time NASCAR drivers will carry messaging for candidates in the 2016 presidential election. Donald Trump's presidential campaign is not paying for nor does it have any connection to the truck...

    Contrary to the assertions of many, voter fraud is not a myth. It is a stark reality that exists nationwide, from the rural counties of Georgia to the urban centers of New York. The Heritage Foundation has documented nearly 250 cases where nefarious citizens, officials, candidates and campaign operatives conspired to commit vote fraud, compromising the integrity of our elections to achieve their ideological goals. That list is just a tiny sampling of voter fraud, and it keeps growing. In May, the Heritage Foundation highlighted several recent cases. Here are some of the egregious new additions to the voter fraud...

    John McCain, who has risen to political prominence on his image as a Vietnam POW war hero, has, inexplicably, worked very hard to hide from the public stunning information about American prisoners in Vietnam who, unlike him, didn’t return home. Throughout his Senate career, McCain has quietly sponsored and pushed into federal law a set of prohibitions that keep the most revealing information about these men buried as classified documents. Thus the war hero who people would logically imagine as a determined crusader for the interests of POWs and their families became instead the strange champion of hiding the evidence...

    The presidential election is still sixteen months away, but this much is clear: Hillary Clinton is a vulnerable candidate. Since announcing her candidacy in April, Clinton’s stature has steadily slipped. Things got even worse this week. We learned, first, that Bernie Sanders eclipsed Clinton in small, individual donations, which is an indicator of popular support among likely voters. Second, and more problematic, the newest AP poll revealed significant weaknesses among Democrats on a host of issues, including trust, character, and compassion for average Americans. These numbers are alarming heading into the general election, especially for Democrats. Bernie Sanders is running...

    In case anyone entertained doubts, Hillary Rodham Clinton's Monday speech on the economy offered proof positive that the center of the Democratic Party has moved left. Her address contained all the elements of the party's analysis of 21st-century American capitalism: • Economic rewards go only to the rich ("successful CEOs and money managers," as she put it). • Corporations reward shareholders and top executives at the expense of investment and employees. • The decimation of unions has left workers powerless to demand their share of the revenue they produce. • Sluggishness of investment, worker income and consumption has made the...

David Jolly will likely announce a bid for Florida’s open Senate seat next week, the first implication from the Florida State Supreme Court last week striking down the state’s congressional map. Jolly’s 13th District is likely to favor a Democratic candidate after the map is redrawn, pushing the one-term Republican to enter the already crowded GOP Senate primary to replace GOP Sen. Marco Rubio, who is forgoing re-election to run for president. Jolly’s decision presents a...

Factually, I’m as uncertain and perhaps more skeptical as the next person. However, given that Trump has actually done things he normally wouldn’t do if this was a mere publicity stunt (ie. stock divestitures, removal of conflicts etc.), for the sake of intellectual argument, I’m going to assume, cautiously yet optimistically, he’s in it to win it. Argument #1 – After all, he’s been a democrat, an independent, a Republican, and well, I have...

    Typically, judges and justices in states with retention elections are retained with anywhere from 60-80% of the vote. However, retention elections are sometimes used as opportunities to remove from office judges who have made unpopular rulings.[3] For example, in Iowa's 2010 retention election, David Baker, Marsha Ternus and Michael Streit, three Iowa Supreme Court justices, were denied retention by slim margins because of the court's unpopular decision to legalize gay marriage.[4]

    Hillary Clinton and her progressive supporters are right to fear the rising presidential candidacy of Republican U.S. Sen. Marco Rubio.

One dealt with traffic tickets (Rubio got four in 17 years, his wife got 13) and the other is his personal finances, including an $80,000 boat, student loans and the mortgage on his home, a house that would fit in the garage of the Clinton mansion in Chappaqua, N.Y

    The conservative group ForAmerica suggested that a Clinton campaign could use footage of Bush thanking Clinton 'to blunt any criticism that Bush levels against her.' Jeb Bush once handed Hillary Rodham Clinton an award for “public service.” Does this disqualify him from the 2016 Republican presidential race? At least one influential conservative group thinks it does. ForAmerica, an organization founded by the veteran Washington rightward figure L. Brent Bozell, released an ad-like video Wednesday attacking Mr. Bush as “unelectable” due to his presence onstage with the likely Democratic nominee at a Philadelphia ceremony about 18 months ago.

    @realDonaldTrump - Mr. Trump should know he's doing something right when the malcontents go ballistic in the press! There is no denying Donald J. Trump's accomplishments and drive to create opportunity for every willing American to succeed. His own success is testament to the job-creating achievements made possible when one applies the courageous and tenacious pro-private sector precepts we need to fire up the economy. Trump joins a competitive field of GOP candidates that will duke it out in the arena of ideas and track records, a field representing diverse achievements. This, in contrast with the pro-big government party's practice...

    Seriously, she does. Not only does she pronounce the word “a” slowly and distinctly, like it’s the answer to a multiple-choice question, without linking it to the words before or after, and not only does she sometimes put little pauses between each word (“it’s . . . America’s . . . basic . . . bargain”) or in inappropriate spots (“it’s the same old . . . song”), but she often puts odd stresses on words, seemingly at random: “too many of our kids never learn as they should”; “we see far more opportunities than threats”; “fight back against those...

    It’ll take an army to change Washington, says the insurgent senator—and with the crowds he’s been drawing, he just might be building one. Bernie Sanders is mad as hell and he’s not going to take it anymore. That’s why he's running for president. He’s filled with righteous anger about a lot of things, and lots of people agree with him. Close to a thousand people turned out to see him in New Hampshire; 750 in Iowa, one of the largest crowds for any of the candidates. He’s “bulking up” now in terms of his campaign staff and he’s doing pretty...
