    The Commission on Presidential Debates had already announced that the second of three debates would feature questions submitted online in addition to those asked by the traditional studio audience. But on Tuesday morning, the organizers confirmed they are embracing a format that a broad bipartisan cross-section of activist and civic groups known as the Open Debate Coalition have been pushing for years. Americans will be able to submit and then vote on questions online at, and ABC and CNN have agreed to consider the 30 most popular queries when they jointly plan the debate.
  • UPI/CVoter state polls: Donald Trump ahead of Hillary Clinton in Electoral College

    UPI ^ | 9/26/2016 | Allen Cone
    Donald Trump would earn enough votes to win the presidency in the Electoral College based on UPI/CVoter's state tracking poll released Monday. Trump would amass 292 votes and Clinton would get 246 with 270 needed to secure the oval office. But the candidates' leads are narrow enough -- 5 percent or less -- in 12 states to classify them as swing states, meaning 156 electoral votes could be up for grabs. If the battleground states are not counted, the race would be tied 191-191.

    New information from the Cape Coral Police Department indicated that an overnight stabbing was self-inflicted. Earlier reports claimed an unknown person stabbed the woman while wearing a Donald Trump-style Halloween mask. Further investigation revealed the woman's injures were self-inflicted. The victim has been admitted for care under the provisions of the Baker Act. Investigators are no longer looking for a suspect in this case and there is no danger to the public at large.
  • Trump Campaign Plans $140 Million Ad Buy

    Trump's new ad buy will include 13 states, from key battlegrounds such as Florida, North Carolina, Ohio and Pennsylvania, to new targets of Maine, New Mexico and Wisconsin, Miller said. About $40 million of the ads will play on national TV, he said.That averages to about $16.7 million per week in TV ads; Miller said the first $15 million ad buy was made Friday, although media buyers and services such as Kantar Media didn't immediately see evidence of that. Clinton's ad reservations going forward total about $11 million per week

    When, after the 2012 election, it was discovered that there were oddities in the voting, such as the 59 different Philadelphia voting divisions where Mitt Romeny got zero votes, to Barack Obama’s 19,605, WND reported on the Big List of vote fraud reports. Including reports like that from a poll watcher in Pennsylvania who told WND up to 10 percent of the ballots cast at a polling station there reverted to a default, which gave Barack Obama a vote no matter who the voter had selected.

    We already knew that Barack Hussein Obama was desperate to make sure that Hillary Clinton wins the presidential election over Donald Trump, but even we didn’t think he’d stoop this low. According to The Political Insider, a movement has started to have illegal immigrants join “citizenship clinics,” which would allow them a pathway to become registered voters. The Washington Post reported that these clinics were an unprecedented effort” that would allow illegals to “presumably (vote) against Donald Trump.” The Obama administration has always denied playing any role in these clinics. However, new evidenced has just surfaced that proves once and...

    For those of you who read and follow People’s Pundit Daily, particularly our election projection models, you know I am a true believer in the average of polls and aggregate data. I do not believe in “unskewing” the polls nor the practice of weighting polling results for party identification. Party identification, which is fluid, is not the same as party registration and respondents should dictate to pollsters what the party breakdown of the electorate will be, not the other way around. That being said, the 2016 presidential election is testing my faith. First, there are too many polls and not...

    The 6th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals ruled against Ohio Secretary of State Jon Husted on Friday in a case involving removal of names from voter registration rolls. The case was based on a lawsuit by the American Civil Liberties Union of Ohio and other entities arguing that Husted was too aggressive in purging voter rolls. Husted's office has removed 465,000 deceased voters and 1.3 million duplicate registrations from Ohio's voter rolls in recent years. His office also has a program to cancel the registrations of those who do not update their registrations or vote over six years, including three...

    Yesterday news broke Department of Homeland Security officials are encouraging employees to work expensive overtime hours to push through as many U.S. citizenship applications as possible before the November election. An internal Obama administration email shows immigration officials may be literally working overtime to swear in as many new “citizen voters” as possible before the Nov. 8 presidential election, a powerful lawmaker charged Thursday.

    Republican Donald Trump has a razor-thin 1-point lead over Hillary Clinton in Florida—a statistical tie and a reversal from last month—according to a new Suffolk University poll of likely general-election voters in a state some consider the tipping point for the 2016 presidential election.

Charlie Crist (D) an uncomfortable reminder of what many Americans think of the Hillary Clinton — namely, that to call Democratic nominee for president “honest” is laughable. Crist, who is challenging Rep. David Jolly (R-Fla.) for Florida’s 13th Congressional District seat, debated the incumbent Monday night. During the debate, Crist elicited laughter when he praised Clinton and specifically called her “honest.”

There are no guarantees. Except one: if you don’t try, death is certain. To compound the metaphor: a Hillary Clinton presidency is Russian Roulette with a semi-auto. With Trump, at least you can spin the cylinder and take your chances. To ordinary conservative ears, this sounds histrionic.

    PPP's newest Florida poll finds a very tight race for President in the state. In the full field Donald Trump gets 44% to 43% for Hillary Clinton, with Gary Johnson at 5%, and Jill Stein and Evan McMullin each at 1%. But in a head to head between Clinton and Trump, the nominal lead flips to Clinton at 47/46. That's because voters who support one of the minor candidates or are undecided in the full field pick Clinton by 12 points over Trump if they had to choose just between the two major candidates. Much has been made about how...

She won here because, well, because the main person running against her seems unfit and unqualified to be President of the United States. That's the opinion of college basketball coaches, at least.

    Just when you think the media could not possibly become more loathsome, the Fourth Estate bullies prove you wrong again.

While both Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump—and the parties they represent—agree the nation’s roads, bridges, airports, rail system, and ports are in need of repair, the new proposals invite familiar questions over how the spending would be paid for, and whether the federal government is the best provider to pay for it. Those questions, and the lack of a must-pass infrastructure initiative requiring Congress’ attention in 2017, mean that...
