Mitt Romney told “Face The Nation” host John Dickerson Wednesday that his conscience would not allow him to vote for his party’s presumptive nominee Donald Trump, reports “It’s a matter of personal conscience,” he said. “I can’t vote for either of those two people,” he said at the Aspen Ideas forum, co-sponsored by Atlantic and the Aspen Institute. Romney also allowed that his wife Ann would be an ideal president and he could write in her name, or failing that, he would write in the name of a third-party candidate....

    Team Clinton is said to have known it could be an issue for Hillary’s campaign months before she announced. Another sex scandal involving former President Bill Clinton, though this time, whispers were of an appetite for young, perhaps even underage, girls – something even (some) Clinton-supporting voters would be unable to forgive.

    Austria’s constitutional court has annulled the result of the country’s presidential elections a week before the winning candidate was due to be sworn into office. The court president, Gerhart Holzinger, announced on Friday that the run-off vote between Norbert Hofer of the populist rightwing Freedom party and Green-backed Alexander Van der Bellen would have to be repeated across the whole country after an investigation had revealed irregularities in the count of the vote in several constituencies. In May, Hofer had lost out to Van der Bellen in a knife-edge election, with a majority of only 30,863 votes. While the Austrian...

Whether or not there is ambiguity as to American Constitutional intent on some matters, there is absolute clarity as to functional intent with respect to one overriding issue. The primary issue in the 2016 Presidential campaign is clearly to determine whom an American President has the duty to serve; whose interests must be honored; who favored. To address this issue, consider the stated purpose of the Constitution--the avowed intent of the framers--the ratified intent of...

    CLEVELAND – The relaxation of rules on protest marches during the upcoming Republican National Convention and the shrinking of a designated event zone downtown is an "important victory" for free speech rights, a civil rights group said Wednesday. A federal judge said last week that the city's regulations for the four-day convention, which starts July 18, were unconstitutional and ordered city attorneys to negotiate new rules with the American Civil Liberties Union of Ohio. The ACLU of Ohio had sued the city on behalf of two groups planning protests and rallies the first day of the convention and a homeless...

    The Fiscal Times ^ | 11 MAY 2016 | Liz Peek
    Here’s how Hillary Clinton plans to beat Donald Trump: She will replay the very successful 1964 campaign against Barry Goldwater. That is, she will scare the bejeezus out of Americans by describing Trump as a “loose cannon,” someone who cannot be trusted with America’s nuclear arsenal. At the same time, she will convince Republicans, alarmed at the prospect of a Goldwater-scale defeat, that backing her is the sensible choice. Her surrogates in the media are already spreading this narrative, which may prove as empty as Clinton’s record as secretary of state. Goldwater was the conservative presidential candidate who went down...

    I try to minimize election predictions—especially long before the voting on election day—but I consider this prediction one of the easiest I have ever made. Hillary Clinton will win by a landslide against Donald Trump. I expect her to win 46 states, and if I am wrong, it is equally likely she will win more than 46 states in November, rather than less. FBI Director James Comey will announce that he is not recommending a criminal prosecution in the Clinton email case, which will give her a tremendous boost. To understand the full magnitude of Clinton’s coming victory consider the...

It seems that at that time, the election was also "close" with Jimmy Carter expected to have another four year term. From Wikipedia; "Weeks before the election, Reagan trailed Carter in most polls. In the Gallup poll on October 26, Jimmy Carter was at 47 percent and Ronald Reagan at 39 percent. Following his sole debate with President Carter on October 28, Reagan overcame the largest...

According to a review of contributions by The Hill, Boston-based Suffolk Construction made two contributions of $100,000 to Priorities USA, which is backing the presumptive Democratic presidential nominee.

A section of the report obtained by POLITICO says the so-called Accountability Review Board did not act independently, as it was supposed to do, and was consistently influenced by Mills. Mills, the report says, helped select members of the panel, gave at least one other State Department official permission to talk to the reviewers, oversaw the production of some documents...

    Battleground state polls show Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton locked in a tight race for the White House with just more than four months to go before Election Day. Clinton has so far failed to pull away in the 10 states likely to determine the outcome of the 2016 election, even as Trump has suffered through what some political observers describe as the worst stretch they’ve seen a major presidential candidate endure. Trump in the last few weeks has fired his campaign manager, seen Republicans flee from his campaign and released embarrassingly low fundraising figures. Yet he is running competitively...

Still, the methodology matters and this one will be open to some of the same questions. .

    To hear the media tell it, Donald Trump was finished last week. For calling a first-generation judge of Mexican heritage a “Mexican,” he had injected racism into the campaign. For firing his strong-arm campaign manager, Corey Lewandowski, he admitted his insurgency was adrift. For not raising as much cash as a woman who’s effectively been running for president since 1992, he was a hopeless, incompetent amateur. And, oh yes — he was down in the polls. In sum, for not playing by the rules laid down by consultants and political journalists, Trump was derailed, wrecked, finished. And then things changed....

Immigrants seeking to become citizens no longer have to pledge to “bear arms on behalf of the United States.” They can opt out of that part of the Oath. Nor do they have to cite any specific religious belief that forbids them to perform military service. ----------------------------------------------- This radical change was announced a year ago, in...

    Most coverage of Donald Trump's speech in New York Wednesday has focused on his attacks on Hillary Clinton. Or the fact that he read the speech from a teleprompter. Or the fact that it came amid a period of disorder and change in his campaign. But Trump included actual substance in the speech — new policy proposals and promises — that escaped many observers. In a series of pledges to take action in his first 100 days as president, Trump said he would move on trade, business regulation, energy, and several other topics. One area in which Trump promised to...

It is pretty impressive. I can only conclude that Donald Trump is a statesman in progress. And...

    A time-lapse video recorded by convention organizers shows the first 36 hours of the arena's transformation — from a few hours after Game 6 ended, to the start of construction. About 250 people will work inside the Q each day to ready the arena for the RNC. The Republican Party typically needs six to eight weeks to convert a space into the RNC convention floor. This year, the GOP only has four weeks — but officials have said they are confident the Q will be ready in time for the convention.

    By their telling, the dozen newly dispatched members of the Trump campaign in Cleveland are working closely and collaboratively with the national committee’s staff members who have been in place here for months. And despite Mr. Trump’s reputation for being a demanding micromanager, he has taken a fairly hands-off approach so far, aides said. “They haven’t changed a thing,” said Ms. Kukowski, the R.N.C. spokeswoman. Actually, there was one thing. After he reviewed the designs for the stage, Mr. Trump sent them back for unspecified revisions.

    Donald Trump launched a new allegation at Hillary Clinton on Tuesday, accusing her of having "laundered" money through a for-profit university while she was secretary of state. In a rapid-response email blast sent during Clinton’s speech attacking Trump’s economic proposals, the billionaire’s campaign accused the former secretary of state of funneling government money to Laureate Education, a for-profit chain of universities that employed Bill Clinton as honorary chancellor until April 2015. The former president made $16.5 million over his five years in that position while his wife added Laureate to the State Department Global Partnership. Trump alleges the Department of...

    Clinton will need every dollar she can get to match Trump’s powers of persuasion. As the GOP nominee, Trump will get all the airtime he needs. And because he is interesting, he will get more attention than any other candidate in the same situation. Also, social media is a far bigger deal today than in any prior presidential election. Most of my friends claim they don’t watch television. And the few who admit to watching television record their shows and skip the commercials... That said, massive spending on TV ads will move the needle a little. But at the same...
