    Police escorted Green Party presidential nominee Jill Stein off Hofstra University’s campus this afternoon before tonight’s first presidential debate. Authorities encountered Stein on the college campus in Hempstead, New York, and asked the third-party candidate, who has not garnered enough support to participate in the debates, to show the proper credentials, which she could not do, police said. She was “nicely escorted” off the grounds around 2:30 p.m. Eastern time, a Nassau County Police Department spokesman told ABC News. Stein tweeted about the incident, saying she was on the campus “doing an interview” when police put her and her team...

    WILLIAMSBURG — The old capitol of Colonial Williamsburg served as a backdrop to Republican vice-presidential candidate Mike Pence, as he took to the stage in the midst of a downpour before a crowd of about 650 for a rally Tuesday evening. "This is what we call a moist evening," Pence said. "Tonight we're showing the media and we're showing the world, this is a movement that is going to elect Donald Trump." Ronald and Ella Weiss drove from Olde Towne, Portsmouth, for Tuesday's event. They've been Trump backers from the start. Ella Weiss said they like what Trump stands for,...
  • Republican Voters Are Unifying Behind Donald Trump

    The Huffington Post ^ | September 20, 2016 | Janie Velencia, associate polling editor
    Republican support for Donald Trump is at an all-time high, with GOP voters now just as unified behind Trump as Democrats are behind Hillary Clinton, according to the HuffPost Pollster polling average. Polls have shown a tightening race in recent weeks, leaving Democrats on edge and concerned that Clinton is losing the comfortable lead she held over the summer. There’s data to back up Democrats’ hand-wringing. Republican voters who had previously withheld their support for Trump have come around recently. Trump has managed to gain 6 percentage points among Republicans since mid-August, and he’s on an upward trend, according to...

    KENANSVILLE, N.C. (WNCN) — A small Eastern North Carolina town is preparing for Donald Trump’s appearance Tuesday just as a Hillary Clinton event in Chapel Hill on Tuesday was postponed. Trump will hold a rally in Kenansville Tuesday just two weeks after making a stop in Greenville. The rally will be held at the Duplin County Event Center and it is likely to be the largest event ever held in Kenansville, with a population of about 855. Duplin County Schools announced on Monday they would be closing at noon Tuesday in anticipation of Trump’s visit. High amounts of traffic are...

    Team Hillary has 49 days until Election Day to clinch what should be an easy victory. After Donald Trump’s August swoon, Hillary Clinton should have been able to coast to November 8th. Instead she has apparently stumbled back into a virtual tie, and Electoral College maps now make the race look like a dead heat with the first presidential debate on the near horizon. With allies and donors getting restive over her inability to close the deal, the Clinton campaign sent out a memo with one main message — don’t panic. Greg Sargent got a look at the Robby Mook...

    To hear the big media tell it, the Republicans are angry, split and spoiling for a fight with each other. This is not altogether bad. Democrats and cats have fought for years and the result is more cats and more Democrats. Maybe it will work for Republicans. If Hillary Clinton, plagued by persistent health issues, decides that leaving the field is the better part of inevitability, if not valor, the Democrats will see how divided they are. Bernard Sanders and his millennials would no doubt consider Hillary’s unlikely withdrawal as heaven-sent (if they actually believed there was anybody in heaven)....

    The Washington Free Beacon ^ | September 18, 2016 | David Rutz
    Democratic National Committee interim chair Donna Brazile said Sunday that Hillary Clinton inspired her after her widely seen fainting spell last week, because even though “she had to be lifted into that van,” she got up and kept fighting. Clinton left a 9/11 memorial event in New York early last Sunday, complaining of feeling overheated, and was videoed nearly collapsing as she was helped into her van. Her campaign later revealed she was diagnosed pneumonia two days earlier, leading to criticism of not disclosing the illness earlier. MSNBC host Joy Reid, who worked for Barack Obama’s 2008 campaign, asked if...

Mr Farron said that the fiery Republican candidate will be boosted, like the Leave cause was, by a high turnout from people who do not usually vote. "My gut tells me he won't win. Do people really want his hand on the button? But, logically, I assume he will," Mr Farron said to delegates at the party conference. Mr Farron was taking part in a jovial conversation with...

    Counter Currents ^ | September 18, 2016 | Zaida Green
    The campaign of Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton is responding to poll numbers and other indications of declining support among younger voters by deploying its most prominent surrogates to college campuses. The moves come a day after two national surveys, one conducted by Quinnipiac University and the other by CBS News and the New York Times, found that more than a third of voters under the age of 30 plan to vote for third-party presidential candidates. Clinton is widely despised, especially by young people. According to the Quinnipiac University poll, Clinton has the support of just 31 percent of voters...

    By this point in the last three presidential election campaigns, northwest Ohio had received at least one campaign visit from the Democratic presidential candidate. So far this year, however, no city in northwest Ohio has made it on Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton’s calendar, while Republican Donald Trump has scheduled his second rally in Toledo. Mr. Trump is to appear in the Stranahan Theater, 4645 Heatherdowns Blvd., at noon Wednesday. Nor have any high-level Clinton surrogates set foot on the flat and formerly swampy soil of northwest Ohio so far in the general election campaign — although one is scheduled...

    Muslims are a tiny fraction of the U.S. population, making up somewhere around one percent, according to the Pew Research Center. But a lot of Muslims live in key battleground states like Florida, Virginia, Michigan, Pennsylvania, and Ohio, which makes them a small but important group. That's why Hillary Clinton's campaign is trying to make sure they show up in large numbers on Election Day. This week across the state of Florida, Democrats were making a major voter registration push tied to Eid, the Muslim holiday. Muslims lean Democrat, but they're less likely to be registered than your average American....

But I also accept the responsibility, making sure that we do everything we can to try to heal these divides to bring people together," the Democratic presidenital nominee told the "Tom Joyner Morning Show" in an interview airing Thursday.

  • NATE SILVER: Donald Trump's odds of winning are at their highest point in weeks

    Renowned statistician Nate Silver's election forecast on Wednesday gave Donald Trump his best odds of winning since late July. In Silver's "polls-plus" model, the Republican nominee had a 34.7% chance of winning in November. Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton was sitting at a 65.3% chance of victory. But the model showed the Electoral College projection tightening significantly. Silver's model had Trump as more likely to win Florida, North Carolina, Iowa, and Ohio, the latter of which has voted in step with the nation in every election since 1964. Clinton, in Silver's model, held a 294.2 to 243.6 edge in the Electoral...

    “Non-college educated white males”, the voting block said to be “Donald Trump's Crucial Pillar of Support”, leads one to believe that The Donald’s appeal is limited to a lower class of Americans. “Non-college educated” seems to be synonymous with illiterate or ignorant. One could almost visualize a knuckle-dragging brute, wielding a club with which to kill his lunch or subdue a mate. This is yet another indication that the elites hold Trump supporters in contempt. Hillary Clinton went so far as to call Trump supporters irredeemable, un-American “deplorables”. The assumption appears to be that a person’s education ceases the instant...

    New York Republicans and even some Democrats called Hillary Clinton’s characterization of Donald Trump’s backers as a bigoted “basket of deplorables” a major blunder that will badly damage her already-faltering campaign. “It’s Exhibit A of her political incompetence,” a prominent Democratic operative who strongly supports Clinton told The Post. “I think a lot of Democratic strategists are in a state of disbelief at how clunky Hillary’s campaign has been. “It’s been a year-and-a-half and she still can’t answer the goddamn email question, and despite outspending Trump by huge amounts, she’s losing ground to him every day and the race is...

    During my writing this election, I’ve warned Democrats and voters afraid of Donald Trump that Bernie Sanders was the only way to defeat the GOP nominee. My advocacy for Bernie in over 200 articles in The Hill, Salon, and The Huffington Post was fueled in large part by my admiration for his honesty and message. As a result of being an inspiration to millions, polls showed Vermont’s Senator consistently beating Trump by over 10 points. In contrast, Hillary Clinton was only up by 2.7 points over Trump the other day. Furthermore, time is no longer on Clinton’s side. She’ll need...

    Hillary Clinton's plan to win the presidency has largely consisted of standing back and letting Donald Trump self-destruct. That doesn't seem to be working anymore. The latest RealClearPolitics polling average shows the Republican candidate steadily closing the gap with his Democratic opponent. Clinton is now leading Trump by less than 3 percentage points — 45.6% to 42.9% — down from 9 points right after the Democratic National Convention in July. Because of the way the US electorate is distributed, Clinton still has a substantial edge over Trump. To clinch the deal, she only needs to win 41 electoral votes in...

    Once resigned to a November defeat, swing state Republicans are increasingly optimistic about Donald Trump’s chances now that the GOP presidential nominee has closed a once-yawning deficit in the polls against Hillary Clinton. That’s according to The POLITICO Caucus — a panel of activists, operatives and strategists in 11 battleground states, 10 of which President Barack Obama carried in 2012. While a majority of GOP insiders still say Clinton would carry their state if the election were held today, significantly more Republicans now say Trump would win than even just a few weeks ago. But despite Trump’s improving prospects, GOP...

    "What is Aleppo?" It is many things, but let's hope among them that it is the turning point in a presidential campaign that has until now been dangerously dismissive of the crucial decisions the next US president will face the second they step into the Oval Office. In a campaign season where shocking moments have come all too frequently, the Aleppo question was another stunner. It happened Thursday morning, on MSNBC's "Morning Joe." It was a shocking exchange between the Libertarian presidential candidate, Gov. Gary Johnson, and one of the show's panelists, Mike Barnicle. Barnicle: "What would you do if...

Humphrey’s defeat came at the end of perhaps the most disastrous campaign season experienced by any political party in the modern era.

"Lyin' Hillary Clinton told the FBI that she did not know the "C" markings on documents stood for CLASSIFIED. How can this be happening?" Trump tweeted Sunday night, referencing FBI findings released on Friday. The nickname hearkens back to the Republican primary, when Trump repeatedly referred to Sen. Ted Cruz of Texas as "Lyin' Ted." Trump's usual moniker for Clinton is "Crooked Hillary," though he has switched it up on occasion, calling the former US secretary...

The latest propagation of this myth is found in a long piece by National Review Online's chief political correspondent, Tim Alberta ("Does Donald Trump Have a Path to 270?"), from which Mark Levin read aloud at great length during his radio program on Tuesday. Levin, who has yet to say how he'll cast his vote for president, framed Alberta's piece as being authoritative in portraying dire straits for Donald Trump....

    This is the chemical equation for what makes plants grow: 6CO2 + 6H2O + Energy = C6H12O6 + 6O2 Translation: Carbon Dioxide plus water with the infusion of light energy and chlorophyll, acting as a catalyst, yields carbohydrates (glucose), utilized in the growth of plants, plus free oxygen. Conclusion: WHEN CO2 INCREASES, PLANTS GROW FASTER (AND LARGER). If plants grow larger they absorb more water and use more light energy. This means less light energy is available to contribute to “global warming”. If more water is retained in plants all over the world, sea levels will fall. If less light...

Two new polls this week show the race in a virtual tie, however, and the latest from Emerson College has the race within a single point among likely voters, 44/43 Hillary. The most surprising finding? Adding Tim Kaine to the ticket has been a bust in the Old Dominion, at least thus far: A new Virginia poll...

The Democratic nominee nearly vanished from the campaign trail in August to attend high-end private fundraisers and to prepare for the first presidential debate on Sept. 26. At times it has appeared that Clinton believes she can run out the clock against Trump, who fell in the polls after a disastrous stretch following the Democratic convention. But while Clinton remains the heavy favorite, Trump has rebounded in some national and battleground polls taken in...

The document, which was obtained and posted online by the mysterious hacker Guccifer 2.0, was sent by Troy Perry, a former Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee staffer, to the rest of the committee staff in November 2015....

    WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange on Wednesday shot back at claims that he was meddling in the US election in favor of Donald Trump. Speaking with The New York Times on Facebook Live, Assange scoffed at the assertion that Trump and Jill Stein, the Republican and Green parties' presidential nominees, were being manipulated as unwitting Russian agents, an idea put forward by top officials including former CIA deputy director Michael Morell. Assange accused Hillary Clinton, the Democratic presidential nominee, of "whipping up a neo-McCarthyist hysteria about Russia." "What kind of press environment is this going to lead to post-election?" Assange asked....

    I'm beginning to think that Donald Trump was right when he said that he could "stand in the middle of 5th Avenue and shoot somebody" and not lose support among certain segments of the population. The man who crafted a campaign around two primary issues--illegal immigration and trade--just caved on the first of these. After months of being the toughest talker on illegal immigration, he's basically come around to the establishment's way of thinking--namely, that there are just too many lawbreakers out there to do anything about it now. Trump maintains that if he's elected president he will still build...

    Former President Jimmy Carter is taking on a more public role in Hillary Clinton’s campaign for the White House. Clinton supporters across the country this morning were greeted by an email from the former Georgia governor asking them to pitch in to help elect Clinton in November.

Forty years later, I will proudly cast my vote for that same woman to be the next President of the United States.”...
