  • Some Democratic Delegates Are “Terrified” After Trump Takes The Lead In Polls

    Buzz Feed News ^ | July 25, 2016 | Emma Loop and Talal Ansari from Philadelphia
    With two polls released Monday showing Trump ahead of Clinton, attendees of the Democratic National Convention in Philadelphia shared their thoughts on Trump’s “post-convention bump.” Last week’s Republican National Convention gave Donald Trump an edge over Hillary Clinton, according to a new CNN poll — and some Democratic delegates at the convention in Philadelphia said they are “terrified” and that the party needs to “do some serious thinking.” In a two-way national matchup — conducted over telephone with over 1,000 random adults — Trump polled at 48% to Clinton’s 45%. Another poll by Morning Consult released on Monday also showed...

    Donald Trump isn't giving up the spotlight as Democrats meet in Philadelphia to formally make Hillary Clinton their presidential nominee. Trump will campaign with his vice presidential nominee, Indiana Gov. Mike Pence, this week in the crucial battleground states of Virginia, North Carolina, Florida and Pennsylvania, where he'll host a town hall in Scranton on Wednesday. The four-state swing will mark the first time Trump and his vice presidential nominee campaign at each other's side since Trump called on the Indiana governor to join him on the Republican ticket just before the Republican National Convention last week. But while the...

    Donald Trump has built his candidacy upon his appeal to and encouragement of every kind of bigotry. He has categorized millions of Latinx people as “criminals,” called women “dogs” and “pigs,” and promised to ban Muslims - a diverse population over 1 billion strong - from entering the U.S. His words are entrenched in racism, sexism, and xenophobia, and they have incited violence against women and people of color at his rallies and throughout our nation. Furthermore, Trump’s running mate, Governor Michael Pence, has opposed and decried legislative decisions that prohibit discrimination against LGBT people in the workplace, military, and...

    There's plenty covered in the interview that ran on TV, but perhaps the newsiest topic of the day, the DNC turmoil, didn't make it into the broadcast. In a video posted under the banner of 60 Minutes Overtime and touted as an "unaired" clip from the interview, Pelley asked Clinton and Kaine about the leak. Clinton's answers—or, more accurately, her non-answers—on what she knew about DNC interference in the primary were…curious. Among them was Clinton's unwillingness to say any such intervention by the party committee to favor one candidate would be "improper."

Schultz announced Sunday she would resign as party chair after this week’s convention, but she still tried to speak to her fellow Florida delegates, to no avail.

But Assange's comment should alert everyone on both sides that the revolution we thought was brewing? It's brewed. It has achieved critical mass. And you see it in the polls. Over the weekend, not only does CNN have Trump now at a 5-point lead, but if the election is head to head, Trump is at 48%.

However, thanks to Wikileaks, we have an actual spreadsheet listing donors and possible purchases of office being circulated among DNC officials. Chuck Ross of the Daily Caller has the story. The spreadsheet — which was accompanied by emails sent between officials with the DNC’s finance team — contains 23 names of little-known corporate executives and professional fundraisers who have donated to the committee and various Democratic political...

That’s because the Republican Party was targeting a new voter base: ultra-liberal Bernie Sanders supporters.

The Gallup poll found that 72 percent of Black women, who are by far Hillary Clinton supporters, fear a Donald Trump presidency. White women (at 56 percent) and Black men (at 55 percent) are a distant second and third, among those who strongly fear their candidate losing. What explains the high level of anxiety for...

But the release on Friday of some 20,000 stolen emails from the Democratic National Committee’s computer servers, many of them embarrassing to Democratic leaders, has intensified discussion of the role of Russian intelligence agencies in disrupting the 2016 campaign.

    Does Hillary Clinton understand that the biggest divide in American politics is no longer between the right and the left, but between the anti-establishment and the establishment? I worry she doesn’t – at least not yet. A Democratic operative I’ve known since the Bill Clinton administration told me “now that she’s won the nomination, Hillary is moving to the middle. She’s going after moderate swing voters.” Presumably that’s why she tapped Tim Kaine to be her vice president. Kaine is as vanilla middle as you can get. In fairness, Hillary is only doing what she knows best. Moving to the...

Not surprisingly, much “veepstakes” speculation leading up to these announcements centered on the usual factors considered to be electorally advantageous: geography and demography. But much of what you’ve been told about the importance of those usual factors is wrong. Based upon the available empirical evidence, it’s not at all clear that these candidate characteristics will have a significant effect on voters. It’s true that voters may like a running mate more because he or she comes from the...

Kaine, while putting on the appearance of being 'pro-Israel' was one of eight Democratic Senators to boycott Prime Minister Netanyahu's address to a joint session of Congress in March 2015 (it's also significant that Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren - the other two Senators mentioned as possible running mates for Clinton - also skipped the speech).

    All those who still insist that Jake Tapper is a fair, “unbiased” journalist will have to eat crow again. E-mails released by the #dncleak from Wikileaks reveal that Jake Tapper, CNN and the Clinton campaign colluded to do biased hit pieces on behalf of DNC against Republicans during the primaries. This is what journalistic integrity is in the twenty first century. This wasn’t just for bashing Donald Trump. CNN Tapper was given stories to bash Ted Cruz too. Why am I not surprise? There’s a reason why CNN is known as the Clinton News Network. Now we can call it...

    In a taped interview with CBS's John Dickerson that aired Sunday on "Face the Nation," Obama said that fact "says something about what's happened to the Republican Party over the course of the last eight, 10, 15 years." Obama also reiterated what he said in a news conference on Friday: that he doesn't think the dark picture of America that Trump painted in his nomination speech is true, even in the wake of an attack on a Munich mall later that day that killed at least nine people.

    Washington - Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump today hit out at his Democratic rival Hillary Clinton and her running mate Tim Kaine, saying they "do not look presidential" as he claimed that enemies like ISIS are "drooling" over their nomination.

Trump said on twitter as he posted a series of tweets wherein he described Kaine as a job killer. "Tim Kaine has been praising the Trans Pacific Partnership and has been pushing hard to get it approved. Job killer!"...

    President Obama said in an interview with CBS airing Sunday that honesty was “absolutely necessary” for a president in order to build trust with the American people. Obama has endorsed his former secretary of state, Hillary Clinton, to succeed him in the White House. In the wake of her private email scandal and the FBI’s revelation that she was “extremely careless” with classified material, Clinton’s honesty numbers with the public are dismal. The FBI also refuted Clinton’s constant claim that she never sent or received classified material on her server, which she has dismissed as a mere “mistake.” “FDR and...
