    CNN ^ | June 29, 2016 | Gregory Krieg
    Hillary Clinton leads Donald Trump by six points, 44% to 38%, in a Fox News poll of registered voters released Wednesday, marking an uptick from similar polls released in May and June. The Fox News results follow a rough patch for the Trump campaign: In May, the presumptive Republican nominee enjoyed a three-point lead in the same survey. But by early June, those numbers had flipped, with Clinton jumping out to a 42% to 39% advantage. CNN's Poll of Polls -- an average of results for the five most recent publicly released national polls that meet CNN's standards for publication...

    Nine candidates are vying for Rep. Charles Rangel's seat — a position he's held for nearly a half-century — but only one stood beside him as he cast his vote in Harlem on Tuesday. "For the first time in 46 years I couldn't find my name!" Rangel said as he stepped out of his polling site at Public School 175 on W. 134th St. "But I'm so glad I did find his name," he added, nodding towards Assemblyman Keith Wright, whom Rangel endorsed as his successor. New Yorkers in seven congressional districts in four boroughs — Queens, Manhattan, the Bronx...

    If you think "Robot Rubio" faded away after Marco's painful debate in New Hampshire, think again. The Carlos Beruff Senate campaign has resurrected that image of Marco Rubio as a talking points repeater in a new digital ad featuring clips of newly minted Senate candidate Rubio repeatedly declining to make an "unequival" statement promising to fill out a full second term rather than run again for president.

    Donald Trump is beefing up his digital strategy as he enters the general election campaign against Hillary Clinton. The presumptive Republican nominee has rolled out a website highlighting what he says are lies told by Clinton and, for the first time, is emailing fundraising pitches to supporters, one of the key elements of a national campaign. “I think the early signs we’ve seen, from them activating a small dollar online plan coupled with the rollout of the microsite, tells me that the Donald Trump campaign is getting its footing,” said Michael Duncan, a partner at Cavalry, LLC, a political consultancy,...

    National Post ^ | June 26, 2016 | Scott Clement and Philip Rucker, Washington Post
    Support for Donald Trump has plunged as he has alienated fellow Republicans and large majorities of voters overall in the course of a month of self-inflicted controversies, propelling Democrat Hillary Clinton to a double-digit lead nationally in a new Washington Post-ABC News poll. The survey finds sweeping unease with the presumptive Republican nominee’s candidacy – from his incendiary rhetoric and values to his handling of both terrorism and his own business – foreshadowing that the November election could be a referendum on Trump more than anything else. Roughly two in three Americans say they think Trump is unqualified to lead...

    Battleground states are called battlegrounds for a reason: They're often close, and 2016 looks like no exception. Hillary Clinton holds narrow leads over Donald Trump across a number of key states of Florida (up three points, 44 to 41 percent); Colorado (Clinton 40 percent, Trump 39 percent); Wisconsin (Clinton up 41 percent to 36 percent) and North Carolina, which has flipped back and forth between the parties in the last two elections, where it's Clinton 44 percent and Trump 42 percent. In the wake of the Brexit referendum in the United Kingdom this week, many wondered if the same sentiments...

Rather criticized cable news networks’ wall-to-wall coverage of the real estate mogul and warned that they may have been “complicit” in Trump’s rise to the top of the GOP field. “What I worry about is, in a way, the media is a political partner, a business partner of Donald Trump,” Rather said on CNN’s “Reliable Sources.”

    It took less than 48 hours for Marco Rubio to nearly clear the field in what had been a crowded GOP U.S. Senate primary. One after another, Republican candidates — some who had campaigned for more than a year — dropped out last week rather than face Rubio, one of the GOP’s leading figures nationwide. U.S. Sen. Marco Rubio reversed course this week, and is seeking re-election. The last Republican standing in the way of Rubio claiming the nomination is a brash Manatee County homebuilder who has drawn comparisons to Donald Trump. Carlos Beruff seems determined to fight on regardless...

    Republican New York Assemblywoman Claudia Tenney is mounting an anti-establishment campaign for the U.S. House seat in New York’s 22nd congressional district. Tenney’s Republican primary for the seat is Tuesday. She is running against businessman Steve Wells, whom Tenney is characterizing as an establishment Republican figure. Tenney says that the Establishment has already spent a million dollars in the primary race against her. The race is now a statistical virtual tie, with Tenney leading Wells 32 percent to 31 percent in a three-way race. Can Tenney pull it out? She spoke to Breitbart News Saturday on Sirius XM Patriot Channel...

    I think it is now safe to say that Paul Ryan is no longer a conservative Republican, nor is he pro-American for that matter. Keep in mind that Paul Ryan’s contributions come largely from outside of his own district. Currently some 80% plus of all of Ryan’s contributions to his re-election campaign come from OUTSIDE of his own 1st District of Wisconsin. Stunningly, around 65% of Ryan’s contributions come from WITHIN the beltway of Washington, D.C. Pondering this statistic, one has to ask themselves, “so who is it that is donating so heavily to Paul Ryan and then why are...

Ryan is being challenged by Wisconsin businessman Paul Nehlen, whose campaign centers upon the idea that Ryan “betrayed” Wisconsin voters by pushing open borders immigration policies and the fast tracking of President Obama’s Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) agreement. In a Saturday media alert, Ryan’s office announced that “House Speaker Paul Ryan (R-WI) will appear on two Wisconsin radio stations in the coming days—WBEL’s The Daly Show on Sunday,...

    Following last night’s historic Brexit vote, House Speaker Paul Ryan’s primary challenger, Wisconsin businessman Paul Nehlen, seems to have taken a page from the playbook of the U.K. Independence Party (UKIP) with the launch of a new billboard campaign. On Friday morning, Nehlen’s campaign went live with a new billboard in Ryan’s hometown of Janesville, Wisconsin that is reminiscent of the distinctive UKIP-style campaign. The ad reads: “Radical Islam Kills Americans. Vote YES for Immigration Control. Vote NO for Paul Ryan.” The billboard then directs viewers to Nehlen’s campaign website, ElectNehlen.com.

Speaking alongside Prime Minister David Cameron at the Foreign Office, he said: "I think it's fair to say that maybe some point down the line there might be a UK-US trade agreement.

The announcement that Trump will not seek repayment of the loans via contributions came amid concerns from his backers that he does not have enough money to fund his campaign for the Nov. 8 election. He had only $1.3 million in cash to start the month. "I have absolutely no intention of paying myself back for the nearly...

    In May, Morning Consult polled people with an unfavorable view of Hillary Clinton about why they didn’t like her. Fifty-eight percent said she was too liberal, while 22 percent said she was too conservative. But 82 percent of Hillary-averse voters said she was corrupt, and 88 percent said she was untrustworthy. These are the beliefs that unite her foes across the political spectrum. It’s why Trump, with his devious talent for derisive nicknames, was smart to dub her “Crooked Hillary.” Some of the examples Trump chose to reinforce this caricature are true. Describing Clinton as “a world-class liar,” he said,...

But, according to a focus group of working class voters here, his White House bid remains a source of optimism among the blue-collar workers whose support he desperately needs to remain competitive in the fall.

    President Obama's final year in office — which was expected to be a time when he would give symbolic speeches and try to cut a few deals with Republicans — is turning into an all-out campaign to stop Donald Trump from succeeding him. In recent public remarks, including his endorsement of Hillary Clinton even before the Democratic primaries were finished, Obama has inserted himself more directly into the campaign than previous second-term presidents. He is effectively turning the election into "Obama-Clinton v. Trump," instead of a traditional contest between the two people with their names on the ballot. Related: Obama...

    Members of the GOP Convention Rules committee are planning to consider an amendment to allow delegates a way out of voting for Trump on the first ballot—an effort that in an extreme could be used to deny him the nomination. Under the proposal, delegates could be granted conscientious objector status, thereby freeing them from their pledge to vote as they are bound as the result of primaries and caucuses. The measure, first put forward by Colorado delegate Kendal Unruh, would undo the strict ‘faithless-delegate’ rule enacted at the GOP convention in 2012 and allow a “vote of conscience, whether personal...

    After Donald Trump clinched the GOP presidential nomination, Speaker of the House Paul Ryan was not satisfied. He spent weeks withholding his official endorsement, while preaching the need for “unity.” After meeting with Trump a number of times, Ryan gave a very lukewarm endorsement of the businessman turned politician in his hometown newspaper. In an editorial for the Janesville Gazette, Ryan wrote that Trump would be able to work with Congress to “help improve people’s lives.” Soon thereafter, Ryan was stabbing Trump in the back, doing the bidding of the liberal media and Hillary Clinton. In fact, Ryan is being...

    There’s a reason why former Speaker of the House John Boehner called Texas Republican Sen.

Cruz ran as an outsider in the presidential primaries until at last he conceded to Donald Trump leaving the billionaire as the presumptive Republican nominee. But his primary loss hasn’t slowed Cruz down as he’s ramped up his efforts to upset Republicans in Washington by supporting another...

    William Gheen, president of Americans for Legal Immigration PAC, or ALIPAC, says he hopes the defeat of a North Carolina congressman will create momentum to sweep Ryan from office, too. Gheen was one of several conservative activists who worked hard for the defeat of Rep. Rene Ellmers, who lost her redistricted seat to another incumbent Republican, George Holding. Ryan faces an August 9 primary challenge from businessman Paul Nehlen in Wisconsin's 1st Congressional District. Ryan is running away with that primary race according to polls. Gheen was not happy that Donald Trump endorsed Ellmers and says the presumptive Republican presidential...

    Dozens of Republican convention delegates are hatching a new plan to block Donald Trump at this summer’s party meetings, in what has become the most organized effort so far to stop the businessman from becoming the GOP nominee. The delegates are angered by Trump’s recent comments on gun control, his racial attacks on a federal judge and his sinking poll numbers. They are convinced that Trump is an insufficiently conservative candidate and believe they will find enough like-minded Republicans within the next month to change party rules and allow delegates to vote for whomever they want, regardless of who won...

    In what is believed to be the highest-ranking defection from the GOP so far, former Bush and Reagan-appointee Richard Armitage says he will vote for Democrat Hillary Clinton over Republican Donald Trump, Politico reports. "If Donald Trump is the nominee, I would vote for Hillary Clinton," the deputy secretary of state for President George W. Bush and assistant Defense secretary for President Ronald Reagan said. "He doesn't appear to be a Republican," Armitage told Politico. "He doesn't appear to want to learn about the issues. So I'm going to vote for Mrs. Clinton."

    WASHINGTON (CNN) -- Former Deputy Secretary of State Richard Armitage acknowledged Thursday that he was the source who first revealed the identity of CIA officer Valerie Plame to syndicated columnist Robert Novak back in 2003, touching off a federal investigation. snip Armitage was not indicted by the federal grand jury that investigated the disclosure of Plame's name to Novak and other journalists. He told CBS that the special counsel investigating the leak, Patrick Fitzgerald, "asked me not to discuss this, and I honored his request." After Novak's column ran, Wilson accused Bush administration officials of leaking his wife's name in...

    Speaker Paul Ryan on Tuesday implicitly disagreed with Donald Trump's remarks from a day earlier in which the presumptive GOP nominee repeated his call for a policy banning Muslims from entering the U.S and condemned radical Islam in the wake of the Orlando nightclub attack. "I think there's a really important distinction that every American needs to keep in mind: This is a war with radical Islam. It's not a war with Islam," Ryan said when asked to react to Trump's terrorism speech on Monday. Watch: Donald Trump speaks on deadly Orlando shooting "Muslims are our partners," Ryan added. "The...

    The terrorist attack in Orlando that ended 49 lives is another reminder of the threat we face from Radical Islam. There is a deadly element of Islam spreading like a cancer throughout our country and we must unite to confront it. Democrats’ bludgeoning of Americans with political correctness has weakened our resolve. Their hesitation to confront Radical Islam, or even utter the term, has emboldened the jihadists – and not for the first time.

    Today I have made the most decision in my life. Never before would I have ever thought this day would come. As a lifetime Democrat, I have always voted and fought for the candidate who espoused my beliefs and defended my rights as a homosexual. Never again will I support the Democrat party, because at a time when the gay community needed them the most, they have turned their back on us. A piece of my heart died this past weekend when a Muslim entered the pulse nightclub in Orlando with the expressed purpose of killing gay people. In the...

    ...First, dare to say that the people aren't always right. Surely Republicans admit the possibility. Or do they believe the people chose rightly in electing Obama? Twice. Historical examples of other countries choosing even more wrongly are numerous and tragic. The people's will deserves respect, not necessarily affirmation..."
