    Donald Trump cut Hillary Clinton's lead in half in the key battleground state of Virginia, but still trails by 7 points, according to the latest Roanoke College Poll. The results of likely voters in Virginia: Clinton: 44 percent Trump: 37 percent Gary Johnson: 8 percent Jill Stein: 1 percent Undecided: 9 percent In the August survey by Roanoke College, Clinton was leading Trump by 16 points. However, Trump ate into Clinton's hold on Independents, turning an 18-point lead last month into just an 8-point deficit in Thursday's poll, 37 percent to 29 percent.

    While criticizing Donald Trump for supposedly inciting violence against Hillary Clinton, Clinton’s running mate Tim Kaine indulged in a violent fantasy of his own. “You know, I’d like to punch the guy in the face,” Kaine said of Trump. “He is using language that is an incitement to violence or an encouragement of violence or at least being kind of cavalier and reckless about violence, and that has no place in any election…” Chris Wallace, host of Fox News Sunday, had just asked Kaine about Trump’s comment on Friday night when Trump said he thinks Clinton’s bodyguards “should disarm.

    FAIRFAX, Va. — With in-person voting for the presidential election starting Friday in Virginia, election officials who will be counting the most votes in the commonwealth say new systems there should allay concerns about hacking. Voters in Fairfax County will first fill out paper ballots and then feed those paper forms into scanners that actually tally the votes — and drop the paper ballots into a bin that is locked and sealed as a record. “This is a completely secure system that never has any connection to the internet,” said Fairfax County Registrar Cameron Sasnett, who provided reporters with a...

    Virginia Sen. Tim Kaine on Sunday said that he and Hillary Clinton are committed to making government more open and transparent, and their presidential campaign should serve as an example. "We're all about disclosure and transparency," the Democratic vice presidential candidate told NBC's Chuck Todd. Kaine was responding to a question about Clinton's reluctance to put out policies so far this cycle related to government reform and transparency. "Why nothing from that, from Secretary Clinton?" Todd asked. "Trust is her biggest problem. And yet, there's no pledge about what's she's going to do to conduct a transparent White House." The...

    On the morning of Sept. 9, an inspector with the Alabama Surface Mining Commission was performing a routine monthly check of an old coal mine in Shelby County when he noticed "a strong odor of gasoline" as well as a sheen on the surface of one of the retention ponds. The gasoline he was smelling came from Colonial Pipeline's Line 1, an underground pipeline three feet in diameter that normally pushes 1.3 million barrels of gasoline per day from refineries in Houston to distribution centers across the Southeast and along the eastern seaboard. That 36-inch line, built in 1963, has...

    The race across the combined battlegrounds is as tight as can be, tied 42 percent to 42 percent.  Clinton was up one point last week, and was up two points back on Labor Day weekend. Voters in these states are still looking for change, while the partisan divide remains particularly deep. Fifty-five percent of battleground voters want to see “big changes” in the nation’s politics and economy in the next few years. Forty-three percent want “some changes” and only 2 percent think things are fine and not in need of much change. Trump leads by a wide margin on being trusted to change Washington: Forty-seven...

Bailey Sr. said. The council discussed the possibility of changing the name to Patrick Henry but tabled the discussion for later. An advisory committee did not recommend name changes for all the streets in Alexandria named after Confederate soldiers but has now opened the door for neighbors...

    With the presidential election less than eight weeks away, the race is too close to call in Virginia, according to a poll released Thursday. Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton held a 3-percentage-point lead over Republican Donald Trump among likely voters, but the spread is within the margin of error, according to a telephone survey commissioned by the University of Mary Washington’s Center for Leadership and Media Studies. Clinton’s lead was wider – 5 percentage points – when the pollsters included the results of all registered voters surveyed, not just those who indicate they’re likely to vote Nov. 8. Voters remain unhappy...

    The city of Alexandria, Va., is stonewalling an investigation into voter rolls in the city that could have illegally registered voters. The Public Interest Legal Foundation, an Indiana-based law firm that litigates to protect election integrity, filed a lawsuit in April against the city of Alexandria on behalf of the Virginia Voters Alliance, a group dedicated to improving election laws. The groups contended that voter rolls in Alexandria have for years contained more registrants than people of voting age in the city. In January, PILF sent a statutory notice letter to Anna J.

    Speaking at the Human Rights Campaign’s annual Washington, DC dinner, Democratic vice-presidential nominee Tim Kaine butchered the Bible and made one of the most twisted arguments for same-sex “marriage” that you’ll ever hear. Yet the very article laying out his arguments described him as a “devout” Roman Catholic. How can this be?Putting aside the obvious question of how Kaine could serve on a presidential ticket with the radically pro-abortion candidate Hillary Clinton – indeed, he has already been challenged for “saying he is both a ‘traditional Catholic’ and a strong supporter of abortion” – Kaine raised further eyebrows when suggesting...

After all, there was public outrage aplenty and even Couric herself finally admitted that the editing of the piece “might have been misleading.” (Really? You think so?) But the group which was the victim of the insulting and misleading editing, the Virginia Citizens Defense League, is bringing the GunGate story back into the news this week. Our colleagues at Bearing Arms have obtained documents confirming that the group is seeking to take Couric to court over the slanderous piece...

In a statement provided to Secrets, Bishop Francis X. DiLorenzo said, "Marriage is the only institution uniting one man and one woman with each other and with any child who comes from their union. Redefining marriage furthers no one's rights." Speaking Saturday to the Human Rights Campaign, the nation's leading LGBT lobbying group, Kaine said he believes the church will change its position on gay marriage. "I think it's going...

Over the weekend, Democratic vice-presidential nominee Tim Kaine spoke at a Human Rights Watch event, extolling the virtues of his running mate on LGBTQ rights and dismissing Donald Trump’s claims to championing their interests. Kaine took a detour from that mission, though, to offer a campaign promise unlike anything ever seen. Kaine, a Catholic, noted that his unconditional support for same-sex marriage puts him at odds with his church, but predicted that the Vatican would adopt the progressive gospel in the future: “My full, complete, unconditional support for marriage equality is...

    English composition students writing homework essays today are denied the advantage of being forbidden to use computers. Under the mandated, short attention span engendered by computers, they tend to pose strings of words beautifully composed with reference to in individual sentences, typically in arrays of functionally, largely unrelated paragraphs.

    The winner of the U.S. presidential election will be determined by about 17 swing counties, with a total of about 500,000 swing voters between them. The American public has heard that 12 swing states will determine who will be the next president. But a book, Presidential Swing States: Why Only Ten Matter, by Hamline University Professor David Schultz, who also edits the Journal of Public Affairs Education, predicts a very small number of America’s 3,142 counties and county equivalents will tip the balance. * In Ohio, it’s Hamilton County, home to Cincinnati; * In Pennsylvania, the key counties are Bucks...

    The New York Times Sept. 4 feature on Tim Kaine1, shows that his year in Honduras introduced him not to Jesus Christ, but to Karl Marx. The story doesn't say that, exactly, but connect the dots with a little history, and an alarming picture emerges of Kaine's adventures with radicals and revolutionaries in 1980s Latin America. The Times notes that in Honduras: “Mr. Kaine embraced an interpretation of the gospel, known as liberation theology...” This wasn't mainstream “Catholic thought” at the time. It was a radical, Marxist-based ideology at odds with the Church, the pope, and the United States, but...

    Sen. Tim Kaine (D-Va.) said Saturday his running mate Hillary Clinton doesn’t need to apologize for her “basket of deplorables” comment about supporters of Donald Trump. “She said, 'Look, I’m generalizing here, but a lot of his support is coming from this odd place, that he’s given a platform to the alt-right and white nationalists,’ ” Kaine told the Washington Post. “But then she went on to say, ‘Look, there’s also a number of his supporters that have economic anxieties, and we’ve got to speak to those.’ ” At a fundraiser in New York City Friday night, Clinton told a...
