    Both nationally and in Trump’s most elusive battleground state, it’s anyone’s ballgame with the debates set to begin tomorrow. As Election Day finally appears on the horizon, most GOPers are beginning to line up. .. in Pennsylvania, where Muhlenberg finds Hillary’s 40/32 lead of a week ago shrinking to 40/38 now. Where’d that extra six points for Trump come from? You know where: “Partisans coming home to their nominee is an expected part of any campaign as you get into the closing days,” said Chris Nicholas, a GOP consultant based in Harrisburg. “What’s notable here is the very large shift...

    NEW YORK CITY, New York — Republican nominee for president Donald J. Trump has taken the lead in Colorado and maintains his lead in Ohio, two new Breitbart News Network/Gravis Marketing polls released on Sunday show. The promising polls for Trump come just before the all-important debate an hour from here on Monday night, at Hofstra University on Long Island. In Colorado, a swing state with 9 electoral votes, Trump leads Democratic nominee Hillary Rodham Clinton by 4 points—outside the survey’s 3.5 percent margin of error. Trump, at 41 percent, leads Clinton—who has just 37 percent. Libertarian Gary Johnson takes...

    Clinton Campaign Accepting The Loss of Ohio…. Facing continually diminishing poll results in Ohio CNN’s Jeff Zeleny reports the Clinton team is essentially ceding the state to save resources. Michigan could be the next to drop. Additionally, Team Clinton are relying almost exclusively on Philadelphia, and to a lesser extent Pittsburgh, to fend off a similar situation in Pennsylvania. Donald Trump’s economic message and outlined ‘America-First’ policy agenda is most effective in the states where Clinton/Bush/Obama… and now candidate Clinton, policies have been the most disastrous for the middle class workers.

    WASHINGTON — On the eve of the first presidential debate, a new Morning Call/Muhlenberg College poll shows a narrow gap between Democrat Hillary Clinton and Republican Donald Trump amid rising support for Trump within his own party. Clinton still leads Trump in a head-to-head matchup, but only by a 3-point margin, 44 percent to 41 percent. Those results showed Clinton's support dropping and Trump's gaining compared with a Morning Call/Muhlenberg poll a week earlier, which showed Clinton at 47 percent and Trump at 38 percent. In a four-way matchup, Clinton leads by 2 points, at 40 percent to Trump's 38...

    ABC News/Washington Post ^ | 9/25/2016 | GARY LANGER
    In all, 44 percent of likely voters say they’d vote for Trump if the election were today, numerically his best since spring. Forty-six percent prefer Clinton, unchanged from an ABC/Post poll early this month and virtually unchanged since June. The 2-point gap between them is not significant, given the survey’s margin of sampling error. The race has closed from an 8-point Clinton lead in early August. Support for third-party candidate Gary Johnson slipped to a new low, 5 percent in this poll, produced for ABC by Langer Research Associates, with the biggest departure among Republicans and GOP-leaning independents -- thus...

    Local officials in Colorado acknowledged "very serious" voter fraud after learning of votes cast in multiple elections under the named of recently-deceased residents. A local media outlet uncovered the fraud by comparing voting history databases in the state with federal government death records. "Somebody was able to cast a vote that was not theirs to cast," El Paso County Clerk and Recorder Chuck Broerman told CBS4 while discussing what he called a "very serious" pattern of people mailing in ballots on behalf of the dead. It's not clear how many fraudulent ballots have been submitted in recent years. CBS4 reported...

"Disappointment does not begin to describe. “Maybe it is time to go to the mountains for a while,” the conservative commentator added. "Again, disappointment doesn’t even begin to describe my feelings.” Beck, who supported Cruz over Trump in the GOP’s presidential primary, added he feared for the nation’s future. “America is an idea, not a country,” he said.

The email, from a U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services field office chief and part of a chain of correspondence within the agency, urges the unnamed recipient to swear in as many citizens as possible “due to the election year.” “The Field Office due to the election year needs to process as many of their N-400 cases as possible between now and FY 2016,” reads the email,...

The survey by Emerson College, which has a margin of error of plus or minus 3.6 percentage points, shows Clinton leading Trump 45 percent to 39 percent in Illinois. The state’s Democratic challenger for the Senate, Rep. Tammy Duckworth, leads incumbent Republican Mark Kirk by 2 points. That is closer than other polls; most observers consider Kirk the most endangered incumbent senator running for re-election this year. The...

    Ted Cruz supporters were alarmed Wednesday at suggestions that he was on the verge of endorsing Donald Trump. They worry that the Texas senator could squander his brand as a fighter — and goodwill earned among many through his stubborn refusal to back his party's nominee — if he caves with nothing to show for it. Cruz has held out on the grounds that Trump is insufficiently conservative, and because Trump attacked his wife and father down the stretch of their heated battle for the Republican nomination. The senator even took the extraordinary step of declining to endorse Trump during...

    Donald Trump is up 5 points nationally over Hillary Clinton in a four-way race, a Thursday poll from right-leaning Rasmussen found. It's the Republican nominee's largest lead in the poll since mid-July. In the poll that also includes Libertarian nominee Gary Johnson and Green Party nominee Jill Stein, Trump holds a 44% to 39% advantage over Clinton. It's an improvement from his 2-point lead in the four-way poll last week, and a much larger improvement from his 4-point deficit in early September. The poll surveyed 1,000 likely voters between September 20 and 21. It has a margin of error of...

Three ABC polls in the final weeks of the 1994 election which showed the Democrats ahead by 4 or 5 percentage points: 11/6/94: 47-42 10/31/94: 48-44 10/23/94: 50-45 Gallup found between March and October 1994 that the advantage went back and forth between the two parties, and was close near the end. Twice in the final weeks, it was dead even.

    In recent years, Republicans have made inroads into the overwhelmingly Democratic constituency of American Jews. But this year, Republican Jews — or Jewish donors to the Republican party, at least — are abandoning their party’s nominee at a stunningly high rate. In 2012, 71 percent of the $160 million that Jewish donors gave to the two major-party nominees went to President Obama’s re-election campaign; 29 percent went to Mitt Romney’s campaign, according to our analysis of campaign contributors, which used a predictive model to estimate which donors are Jewish based on their names and other characteristics. This ratio of support...

    The choice for voters is clear: a tax cut from Donald Trump or a pay cut courtesy of Hillary Clinton. Trump is promising to slash income taxes to zero for millions of people currently paying them, and to reduce the tax bite on everyone else except the mega-rich. Clinton, by contrast, isn’t cutting income tax rates for anyone. Instead, she’s campaigning to raise business taxes, despite warnings it will cause wages to plummet and the economy to tank. No wonder Trump is moving up in the polls. Most Americans are still making less than they did in 2007. The mainstream...

This millennial-centered speech will be her only campaign appearance until the first presidential debate on September 26. Much like every other interaction with young people during her 2016 presidential campaign, it bombed miserably. In the scripted speech, she managed to say the phrase “income inequality” only once. Clinton also managed to avoid addressing the question of third party candidates, who many millennials support over her. Her best selling point as a presidential candidate...

But when Johnson voters and undecideds are asked who they would pick if they had to choose between Clinton and Trump, the contest moves into a tie at 47%.

Considering that Clinton was so confidant in Colorado that she pulled her money out of the state in July, these September polls represent an earthquake in Colorado and nationally.

    NEW DELHI: Road Transport and Highways Minister Nitin Gadkari has pledged to kick off one project every week in poll-bound Uttar Pradesh as part of the central government's ambitious development agenda for the state.

Everything she believes leads to this conclusion. Everything she does, even the stupid things that have hamstrung her, stem from it. Hillary Clinton hates you.

    Therefore—say, in a Tom Clancy novel—in some unfortunate, unknown circumstance, Huma Abedin-Weiner could become our first unelected Muslim President There are alleged, newly leaked e-mails between Huma Abedin-Weiner, Cheryl Mills, and Bill Clinton’s Wife, which reportedly reveal that if Bill Clinton’s Wife wins the Presidency, then Huma Abedin-Weiner will be appointed Secretary of State. This is fantastic news…if you are a Muslim, member of CAIR or the Muslim Brotherhood, or even just a casual Jihadist infiltrator with a confused view of true Holy Islam. And, Huma (rhymes with Poobah) would, indeed, make a fitting successor to John “I Love Me”...

    There was a time when Hillary Clinton’s team believed she would win every swing state, many by double digits. That time has passed. According to today’s Washington Post, the Clinton team is now “pessimistic” about holding Iowa and Ohio, and they believe Florida and North Carolina will be close. Right now, the latest polls have Donald Trump ahead in all four states. If he were to win those four states, as well as Nevada, he would be one state away from winning the presidency. Here are the remaining battleground states and where they stand....

    CHAPEL HILL, N.C. (MarketWatch) — I’ll start with the bad news: The fourth year of the presidential election-year cycle is about to end, and year No. 1 of a new cycle is about to begin. And you can only guess what that means. But there also is some good news: What you know about the first year of the cycle is most likely wrong: First years do not automatically spell doom..... ...two features of that record that suggest we shouldn’t write off the stock market’s near-term prospects. First, as you can see in the chart at the top of this...
