This is absolutely unacceptable and those participating in or encouraging these efforts should stop. The electoral process in America has worked, and everyone - Republicans, Democrats, Independents, and others - should respect the will of Georgia's voters and the Electors who represent them."

A Quinnipiac poll put Hillary Clinton into a tie with Donald Trump in the Peach State last week at 46-all in a two-way race and only down one when including Gary Johnson. That hinted at a potentially yuuuuuuge hole in Trump’s firewall, but a new poll from Survey USA and WXIA puts Trump firmly ahead by seven points:

FRC launched a petition today at frc.org/walsh that calls on Governor Deal to "correct this egregious over-reach of the state into church affairs." "This demand for Dr. Eric Walsh's sermons, sermons notes and ministerial documentation is an alarming display of government intrusion into the sanctity of the church, pastor's study and pulpit," said Tony Perkins, Family Research Council president and himself an ordained pastor....

According to court documents, Lawler during a domestic dispute in 1997 opened fire with an AR-15 rifle on two officers at his home, killing one and seriously wounding the other.

    Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton faces a striking choice in the final three weeks of the campaign: to expand her efforts to states that Democrats haven’t won in a generation, or to stay a current course that, if conditions hold, would deliver her a resounding electoral college victory. After two tumultuous weeks focused on Donald Trump’s behavior toward women, Clinton is ahead in nearly all of the key battleground states where her campaign has directed the most resources, according to many recent polls. But some once-solidly Republican states — notably Arizona, Georgia and Utah — now also appear to be...
