Six days until Iowa, Trump is in clear command of GOP race These are words that most political observers, including us, didn't think we'd ever write six months ago: Less than a week before Iowa and two weeks before New Hampshire, Donald Trump is in clear control of the GOP presidential contest.

    Washington (CNN)--Donald Trump has hit a new high in the race for the Republican nomination, according to a new CNN/ORC Poll, with more than 4-in-10 Republican voters nationwide now saying they back the billionaire. And more than two-thirds of Republicans say he's the candidate most likely to capture their party's presidential nomination. Trump has topped the 40% mark for the first time in CNN/ORC polling, standing at 41%. That more than doubles the support of his nearest competitor, Texas Sen. Ted Cruz, who notches 19% support in the poll. No other candidate hit double-digits. Florida Sen. Marco Rubio landed at...

    PHOENIX -- There's no earthly chasm disrupting tree-lined Central Avenue here as it placidly heads north of Bethany Home Road, past well-off residences. However, there might as well have been an abyss between U.S. Sen. John McCain's former home on Central and the church auditorium not far away where local Republican precinct committeemen convened for their annual assembly. McCain left that neighborhood once his children were grown, and the regular January meeting of Maricopa County GOP precinct ground troops, resounding with denunciations of their own party's dispiriting record, in effect voted overwhelmingly that McCain should leave the Senate, too, although...

    The Iowa caucuses are 10 days from Friday. And Donald Trump, the larger-than-life real estate reality star, is -- still -- the front-runner for the Republican presidential nomination. Not only has Trump not disappeared or imploded -- as everyone everywhere predicted he would -- he appears to be getting stronger in both early-state and national polling as actual votes draw closer. At this point, Trump's path to putting the nomination away quickly is far easier than the one Hillary Clinton must travel to capture the Democratic nomination. That doesn't mean Trump is a sure thing just yet, but he has,...

    At a rally in Iowa this week, Donald J. Trump explained in bold terms and broad brush strokes the many ways he would improve the United States as president: building a wall, rebuilding the military, beating China on trade. When a protester chimed in to question how the Republican would do the things that he promised, Mr. Trump decided that instead of removing the man from the audience, he would respond. "You watch," the billionaire developer said flatly. His supporters cheered. Mr. Trump has regained momentum in Iowa two weeks before the state's caucuses, and many voters cite his bravado...

    Conservative icon Phyllis Schlafly and former presidential candidate Pat Buchanan delivered a one-two punch Friday against the National Review, which has used its latest issue to launch a full-scale effort to take out GOP front-runner Donald Trump. The magazine includes essays from conservative writers who argue that Trump would be a disastrous nominee for president and that he lacks authenticity as a true conservative. Appearing on "The Laura Ingraham Show" on Friday, Schlafly swatted away those complaints. "National Review is not the authentic conservative," said Schlafly, founder of the Eagle Forum. "You know (magazine founder) Bill Buckley was for giving...

    The North Rhine-Westphalia (NRW) state government has released the full log of offences recorded in the city centre on New Year's Eve, which lists in detail the forms of crimes committed, and the genders of those attacked. With crimes ranging from mere pickpocketing to full blown "group rape", what Germany's Bild newspaper calls the "list of shame" runs to a staggering 821 complaints. When considering all the major cities of the NRW state including Cologne, Dusseldorf, Dortmund and Bielefeld the number of complaints is closer to 1,000.

    Police and politicians in the German region that includes Cologne have been so scared to talk about North African migrant crime that is has effectively been a "state secret", a prominent German newspaper has reported. Die Welt says that crime committed by North African migrants has been especially high for years in the North Rhine-Westphalia region, but politicians have rarely spoken out on the issue. The region includes the city of Cologne which witnessed the worst of the New Year's Eve sex assaults three weeks ago, resulting in over 600 criminal complaints being filed so far.

Edmund Stoiber -- an elder statesmen in the Christian Social Union (CSU), Chancellor Angela Merkel's Bavarian sister party -- said Germany had to change direction fast, and gave the Chancellor just two months to solve the problem. "Angela Merkel must now change her position, otherwise there will be disastrous consequences for Germany and Europe," Mr Stoiber said in an interview with Suddeutsche Zeitung. In what appeared to be an ultimatum, he added that if Mrs Merkel does...

    Months ago, during the Summer of Trump, Republicans looked at the appearance of this gross, comic, orange interloper among them with a mix of shock and disdain. Fox News tried to discredit him as a serious candidate; nobody else onstage knew quite what to do with him. Since then, Trump has created facts on the ground, making himself an indispensable element of the party. He now seems completely normal. Part of it is that Trump has gotten better, more polished. His cartoonish facial gestures come less frequently. He is less outrageous (and less funny). He seems to control his tone...

    A quarter of Republicans think White House hopeful Ted Cruz is disqualified to serve as U.S. president because he was born in Canada to an American mother, a new Reuters/Ipsos poll found. Republican voters nearly mirror independents and the broader electorate in their belief that Cruz cannot hold the White House, with 27 percent of all voters and 28 percent of independents responding he should be disqualified. Cruz, a U.S. Senator from Texas who was born to a U.S. citizen mother and Cuban father in Calgary, Alberta, has brushed aside the attacks about his eligibility as pure politics. But...

    East European political leaders and their media allies have attacked 'politically correct' Germans in the wake of the New Year's Eve migrant sex assaults in Cologne and other cities, labelling the assailants "nothing but hyenas". In a huge "we told you so" gesture, politicians from across Eastern Europe have turned their fire on the German state's welcoming and tolerant attitude to the migrant crisis. Having warned Chancellor Merkel that her actions and the politically correct tyranny of media opinion risked bringing Europe to ruin, they now feel vindicated by events in Cologne, reports Spiegel Online.

    The retired president of a German state court has accused chancellor Merkel of acting unconstitutionally, and of moving to build her own personal power at the expense of German democracy. Judge Michael Bertrams, former president of the constitutional court of North Rhine-Westphalia said Chancellor Merkel had "gone it alone" over the admission of "hundreds of thousands of refugees into the country". Judge Bertrams may have seen the worst excesses of this policy, as his court sat in the same German state which was rocked this month by the new year's migrant rape crisis, which was first reported in its largest...

The 26-year-old woman named Selina withheld her full name when she gave an interview to German television channel SWR Fernsehen last week.

    Attacks on women in Cologne and other German cities on New Year's Eve have prompted more than 600 criminal complaints, with police suspicion resting on asylum seekers, putting pressure on Chancellor Angela Merkel and her open door migrant policy. The attacks, mostly targeting women and ranging from theft to sexual molestation, have prompted a highly-charged debate in Germany about its welcoming stance for refugees and migrants, more than one million of whom arrived last year. The sudden nature of the violent attacks and the fact that they stretched from Hamburg to Frankfurt prompted Germany's justice minister Heiko Maas to speculate...

This latest poll, however, has Trump beating Clinton by 3 points, 47-44 percent.

    Republicans explain away their unwelcome poll-leader by dismissing his supporters as a loud but narrow network of angry white men and celebrity chasers. It's not true. A POLITICO review of private and public polling data and interviews with GOP pollsters shows a coalition that certainly begins with conservative, blue-collar men now extends to pro-choice Republicans, independents and even registered Democrats unnerved, primarily, by illegal immigration. . . Indeed, the uncomfortable truth, for the pundits and fellow Republicans who turned their noses up at Trump, is that his appeal has spread over seven months so far beyond a rabble-rousing, anti-establishment rump...

News editors of ZDF's flagship "heute" (today) evening news programme apologised on social media for not reporting on the incidents at least in its Monday evening bulletin, four days...

    Democratic Party activists are conflicted over whether Hillary Clinton can take on Republican presidential front-runner Donald Trump in the general election, with some fearing she provides too much ammunition for the flamboyant businessman's style of attack.
