    Michael Bloomberg’s still-nascent presidential campaign got more bad news Monday as another survey found more than half of likely Democratic primary voters in New Hampshire would give the former mayor the cold shoulder. The survey from Quinnipiac University found that 54 percent of voters “definitely” wouldn’t support the billionaire’s White House bid if he jumps in the race — while only 2 percent said they would vote for him. Another 37 percent of likely Democratic voters told the pollsters they were open to considering Bloomberg if he formally jumps into the race. “It’s a tough way to come out of...

  • Sen. Bernie Sanders to be endorsed by Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, an influential voice

    Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez of New York, one of the most influential voices among young liberals and a rising Democratic star, plans to endorse Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) for president and appear with him at a rally on Saturday, according to two people with knowledge of her plans. The surprise endorsement is a political coup for Sanders, 78, who has been fading in the polls and has faced growing questions about his age and health. Before Tuesday’s Democratic debate, he had been sidelined from the campaign trail for two weeks by a heart attack. “We’re looking forward to Saturday,” said Corbin...

    The latest polling data from Morning Consult show former vice president Joe Biden climbing back into a stable lead in the Democratic presidential primary, after several weeks of running alongside Massachusetts senator Elizabeth Warren. Among Democratic-primary voters surveyed over the past week, 33 percent say they support Biden compared to just 21 percent who support Warren. Still in third place, Vermont senator Bernie Sanders comes in close behind Warren with 19 percent support. When asked who their second choice in the field would be, respondents who selected Sanders as their first choice preferred Biden to Warren as their next best...

    Mitt Romney could turn out to be the 2020 version of Evan McMullin. Last week some signals were sent that may indicate Romney is considering it.Remember Evan McMullin? He’s the former CIA officer who ran as a third-party candidate in 2016. He claimed to be a conservative alternative to Donald Trump. He failed miserably and even placed third in total votes in his own state of Utah. McMullin was said to have been recruited by Bill Kristol and his ilk among Establishment Republicans who were unable to accept Trump at the GOP nominee. Romney has re-emerged, as he does...

    Joe Biden increases his lead in the Palmetto State, as a growing number of South Carolina Democratic primary voters want a candidate who can defeat President Trump. The former vice president is ahead by 29 points, according to a Fox News Poll. That’s up from a 21-point lead in July. Biden captures 41 percent support among Democratic primary voters (+6 points since July), Elizabeth Warren trails with 12 percent (+7), and Bernie Sanders gets 10 percent (-4).

    The Democratic race for the presidential nomination may be at a turning point as a surging Elizabeth Warren blew by both Joe Biden and Bernie Sanders in California to take an 8-point lead in the latest tracking poll from the state. This poll is not an outlier. Warren also took the lead in Iowa in the Des Moines Register poll. It appears that Democrats are beginning to shake off worries about "electability" and are embracing the far-left "soak the rich" agenda of the Warren/Sanders wing of the party. The California poll is something of a shocker.

    They may only be four percent of our country -- but the LGBT community is getting 100 percent of the Left's attention. Over the weekend, 10 of the Democrats vying for President Trump's job tried to persuade Americans that the most pressing issue facing our country is the pursuit of taxpayer-funded gender surgery. If pandering were an Olympic sport, Joe Biden could have medaled. Instead, he settled -- like they all did -- for new records in extremism. GLAAD CEO Sarah Ellis would have you believe that "LGBTQ issues have been... left out of the 2020 presidential primary conversation." That's...

    Sen. Kamala D. Harris hit the panic button Thursday on her free-falling campaign, announcing an Iowa-or-bust strategy that she hopes will put her on an Obama-like glide to the nomination. She also raised the stakes by vowing to quit the race if she can’t muster a win, place or show in the Hawkeye State’s leadoff caucuses Feb. 3. “We want to make sure that we have a strong top-three finish,” said Harris campaign manager Juan Rodriguez. “I think that will kind of continue to give us a slingshot to go into that early primary state calendar and then make sure...

    Beto O’Rourke launched an expletive-fueled defense of his call Sunday to ban assault-style weapons and impose mandatory buybacks of AR-15s and AK-47s while also pushing back at critics — including fellow 2020 Democrat Pete Buttigieg. During last Thursday’s presidential debate, the former Texas congressman said, “Hell yes, we’re going to take your AR-15, your AK-47, and we’re not going to allow it to be used against your fellow Americans anymore.” Three days later, O’Rourke appeared on NBC News’ “Meet the Press,” where host Chuck Todd pointed out that there was “a lot of hand-wringing” about the presidential contender’s full-throated call...

    Kamala Harris has always been known for her lean and hungry, pushy, grabby, ambition, which includes a willingness to sleep her way to the top to get what she wants. Her political start began as a social mountaineer with San Francisco's old-money Pacific Heights set dating from her 20s and then just moved onward and upward. That's not sitting well with California's lizardy old-money senior Senator, Dianne Feinstein, who knows that establishment well. And so, she's taking some action, as Fox News reports: According to reports, Feinstein, the senior senator from the Golden State, will throw a fundraiser next month.

    In the most contentious Democratic debate thus far, a winnowed field of 10 Democratic candidates took the stage in Houston Thursday night and sparred over hot-button issues such as health care and immigration. Notably, this was the first time that frontrunners Sen. Elizabeth Warren and former Vice President Joe Biden shared the debate stage. At the end of the night, Joe Biden emerged as the winner and Warren and Sen. Bernie Sanders were the surprise losers.

    Gaffney, South Carolina — In the past month alone, Joe Biden has confused New Hampshire for Vermont, compared poor kids to white kids, and said he met with students from the 2018 Parkland shooting while he was vice president. He told an audience he wasn't "going nuts," after he failed to remember the exact location of a speech he had just given. And a story he told about awarding a war hero turned out not to be entirely true. The string of summer slip-ups would seem to reinforce Biden's gaffe-prone reputation and raise questions about his central pitch of electability....

    After a bit of a build-up, former Illinois Rep. Joe Walsh has made it official and announced he’s running for president . He will challenge Donald Trump for the Republican nomination in 2020. “I’m going to run for president,” Walsh said on ABC’s This Week. “I’m running because he’s unfit; somebody needs to step up and there needs to be an alternative. The country is sick of this guy’s tantrum—he’s a child.” The announcement wasn’t exactly surprising considering the controversial radio host known for his incendiary remarks has been saying for days that Trump needed a challenger from the right....

    Former Ohio Gov. John Kasich plans a likely visit to the first-in-the-nation presidential primary state of New Hampshire next month or in early October, a top Kasich adviser told Fox News. A trip by the very vocal critic of President Trump — first reported by The Washington Post — will spark further speculation that Kasich is seriously weighing a long-shot GOP primary challenge against the president. “The governor’s never closed the door to challenging Trump,” senior adviser John Weaver told Fox News. […] But even though Kasich retains a small group of solid supporters in the state, any path to...

    WASHINGTON — Allies of Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., and the other members of the so-called squad are expecting the progressive lawmakers to face potential primary challenges next year from more establishment-leaning forces, so they're working to shore them up politically now. The labor union-backed Working Families Party, which missed their chance to endorse Ocasio-Cortez during her primary last year, is now offering an unusually early endorsement for the New York Democratic congresswoman and the three other members of "the squad," pledging to back them in intra-party fights or try to dissuade challengers before they materialize. "They’re facing the combined institutional...
