    JERUSALEM (Reuters) - On a rooftop overlooking the walls of Jerusalem's Old City, around 200 American-Israeli fans of Donald Trump gathered to proclaim their support for the Republican candidate, convinced he will be Israel's best friend if elected. Wearing "Make America Great Again" baseball caps, the small crowd, ranging from Holocaust survivors in their 80s to grinning teenagers in Trump t-shirts, said they didn't care about the sexual assault allegations against the candidate or the online anti-Semitism of some of his supporters. "Trump will let Israel be itself and make its own decisions, that's what I like," David Weissman, a...

    A few days ago, ABC News reported a twelve-point lead for Hillary Clinton in their tracking poll, but … it didn’t last long. Just three days later, the same tracking poll shows her lead over Donald Trump down to six points. Needless to say, the most prominent conclusion from this roller coaster is that the race is still rather volatile, even with just twelve days to go: With 12 days to go, Hillary Clinton holds a six-point edge over Donald Trump among an electorate fixated on the campaign and nervous about their candidate losing, according to a new Washington Post-ABC...

    A video excerpt from liberal Michael Moore is taking the internet by storm. But it’s not Moore’s loyal fans singing his praises for a passionate political confession – it’s Donald Trump’s supporters who are doing the cheering. In the speech that was given before an audience in Ohio, reportedly for the film “Trumpland,” Moore delves deep into the mindset of Trump’s appeal. But first, he shockingly starts out by defending Trump supporters. “They’re not racists or rednecks, they’re actually pretty decent people. So, after talking to a number of them, I sort of wanted to sort of write this.” Moore...

    TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (Reuters) - Leonard "Roscoe" Newton has been in and out of Florida's prisons since before he could vote, starting with a youthful conviction for burglary. He's been a free man for six years now with an important exception: he still can't vote. Newton, who is African American, is among nearly 1.5 million former felons who have been stripped of their right to vote in a state with a history of deciding U.S. presidential elections, sometimes by razor-thin margins of just a few hundred votes. Felons have been disenfranchised in Florida since 1868, although they can seek clemency to...

    Something funny is happening in the major national polling department of this presidential race and no one’s talking about it. First, somehow the narrative seems to be developing that the polls show Clinton with a near insurmountable lead. Not so fast. Not so fast at all. There is a very large gap between Trump and Clinton’s current national standing, as revealed by Goebbels/Pravda (CBS, NBC, ABC/Washington Post), on the one hand, versus the picture painted by three respected polling organizations that are not part of the propaganda wing of the Democratic Party, on the other: Here are some of the...

    Donald Trump won tonight’s debate. He didn’t implode, he didn’t blither, he didn’t continually interrupt Hillary Clinton and he didn’t even sniff much. And, frankly, he had the best retorts and one-liners. Clinton was on her heels much of the night, and several times, she had to reset by resorting to tired, hollow platitudes — which only drove home the point that she lacks authenticity and appears to be a typical politician who is therefore dishonest. That said, Clinton was an able, informed politician, but Trump — for the first time — appeared to be a worthy opponent. The fact...

    Paul Ryan's job as speaker "may be under threat" from a pro-Donald Trump rebellion within the House of Representatives, CNN reported Wednesday. At issue for the top Republican in the country is a Monday conference call with House membership during which Ryan said he would no longer defend Trump or campaign for him, instead focusing on congressional races to ensure a GOP majority. Ryan's "position to abandon the GOP nominee has angered other Republicans who have expressed their concerns with Ryan's position on a private conversation call earlier this week," CNN's Manu Raju reported.

    THE BIG IDEA: Now that it has become crystal clear Donald Trump will not quit—that he has “unshackled” himself and plans to “limp” across the finish line—some Republicans who called on him to drop out over the weekend are reversing themselves. The senior senator from Nebraska tweeted this on Saturday: The comments made by Mr. Trump were disgusting and totally unacceptable under any circumstance. (1/2) It would be wise for him to step aside and allow Mike Pence to serve as our party's nominee. (2/2) But yesterday during a radio interview she announced that she will vote for Trump after...

    Wilkes-Barre (United States) (AFP) - Lewd remarks about groping women? It's locker-room banter. Accusing former US president Bill Clinton of sexual abuse? He had to. Left for dust in the polls? Pollsters lie. Donald Trump's supporters appear oblivious to the gravity of his latest scandals and hemorrhaging support among lawmakers from his Republican Party, as passionate as ever about electing the real estate billionaire to the White House. Trump may be repelling undecided voters, but if the Grand Old Party has all-but renounced hope of victory on November 8, there is little sign the former reality TV star's loyalists are...

    WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Hillary Clinton's campaign is confronting an emerging risk to her presidential ambitions - if Donald Trump continues to trail her in opinion polls many Democrats may simply stay at home on Election Day. Without enough popular support, Clinton would enter the White House lacking the political capital she would need to drive through her agenda. In the worst-case scenario it could cost her the presidency if Republicans turn out in big numbers on Nov. 8. Clinton, the Democratic nominee, has spent much of her campaign sounding the alarm over the prospect of a President Trump. She has...

    Sunday night’s epic Trump v Clinton debate had all fireworks of a WWE match and the no-holds-barred vitriol of an everything-at-stake Roman gladiator fight to the death, and the line of the night, given by Donald Trump, made it abundantly clear to Hillary just what IS at stake – for her at least. The line came about 20 minutes in, when Trump responded to Hillary Clinton’s “it’s just awfully good that someone with the temperament of Donald Trump is not in charge of the law in our country.” with a droll “Because you’d be in jail.” The line drew the...

    A video of Donald Trump making lewd sexual comments prompted plenty of party stalwarts to abandon the GOP nominee, but Republican voters aren’t ready to leave their man behind: Only 12 percent of Republicans say Trump should drop out of the race. Overall support for Donald Trump dropped just one point in a POLITICO/Morning Consult poll taken immediately after the 2005 Access Hollywood video leaked. Trump would get 38 percent of the vote if the election were held today, Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton would get 42 percent.

    GENEVA (AP) — Diplomats tell The Associated Press that Russia's government lodged a formal complaint last month with the United Nations over a top U.N. official's condemnations of Donald Trump and some European politicians. The intervention underscores the unusual links between the Kremlin and the Republican presidential nominee. There is no evidence Trump sought Russia's assistance, or was even aware of the criticism by Zeid Ra'ad al-Hussein, the U.N. high commissioner for human rights. But three diplomats say the criticism prompted Vitaly Churkin, Russia's U.N. ambassador, to issue a verbal "demarche" to U.N. Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon in a private meeting...

    The G20 warned Friday of the risks to the global economy of populist politicians playing up anti-globalization sentiments to voters. With the global economy already dragging, finance ministers of the group of leading economies said such populism could further hurt growth. "This trend of deep anti-globalization populism has driven politicians to come up with their campaign slogans and try to win the votes and support. That has brought us uncertainty," said China's Finance Minister Lou Jiwei, speaking on behalf of the G20 group of economic powers after they met in Washington. Lou identified such populism as one of the largest...

    In an effort to find illegal work and settle permanently in America, at least 44 Afghan troops visiting the US for military training have gone missing since January 2015, Pentagon officials said. It raises concerns about procedures for such programs. Eight Afghan troops have left military bases without authorization since September alone, Pentagon spokesman Adam Stump told Reuters, disclosing the total number of Afghan troops who have gone missing for the first time. “The Defense Department is assessing ways to strengthen eligibility criteria for training in ways that will reduce the likelihood of an individual Afghan willingly absconding from training...

At the Orpheum theater, Chelsea defended her mother and attacked Republican Presidential nominee Donald Trump to a crowd reported to include just 125 people. Chelsea Clinton told those in attendance that she doesn’t want to live in a country with what she called the “demeaning speak” of Trump. “The demeaning speak against Americans with disabilities, against women, against minorities, against Muslims, against immigrants, against our veterans, against a gold-star family,” Clinton said. “None of that is the country that I...

Megyn Kelly threw some shade at Sean Hannity after the debate last week, but tonight she took a far more direct shot at her colleague and fellow Fox primetime host. To be fair, it was more of a shot at Donald Trump in a segment where Kelly called out both him and Hillary Clinton for sticking with softball interviews instead of subjecting themselves to hard-hitting questions. And after ripping Clinton for doing interviews with entertainment outlets, Kelly said this: “Donald Trump,...

    (Reuters) - The forces influencing the U.S. presidential election favor Republican nominee Donald Trump to win the popular vote - but even proven prediction models face "the most difficult election by far to predict accurately," a political forecaster with a three-decade winning streak said on Wednesday. History Professor Allan Lichtman of American University in Washington has accurately predicted the popular result in presidential elections since Republican President Ronald Reagan defeated Democratic challenger Walter Mondale in 1984. Although the number of ballots cast by voters for each candidate counts, it does not ultimately determine who takes the White House. In a...

    The New York Times has excited the Clinton campaign and the rest of the media with a revelation that Republican nominee Donald Trump declared a $916 million loss in 1995 that might have resulted in him not paying taxes in some subsequent years. The implication, reinforced by CNN’s Jake Tapper on State of the Union on Sunday morning, is that Trump “avoided” paying taxes, when in fact his tax liability was zero. But the Times itself has “avoided” paying taxes — in 2014, for example. As Forbes noted at the time: … for tax year 2014, The New York Times...

Clinton still leads Trump in a head-to-head matchup, but only by a 3-point margin, 44 percent to 41 percent.

Let’s take a deep breath and see if they have a credible case, or whether this is pure partisanship.

Going after rival Donald Trump, she argued that his anti-Muslim rhetoric is helping Islamic militants, including ISIS, recruit new fighters. The Democratic presidential candidate touted her national security credentials at a hastily arranged news conference outside her campaign plane, accusing Republican Trump for using the incidents to make "some kind of demagogic point." "I'm the only candidate in this race who's been part of the hard decisions to take terrorists off...

    As Donald Trump has caught up with Hillary Clinton in the polls, he has likewise closed the gap in the electoral college. Ipsos/Reuters says the race to 270 votes is now nearly tied. Many are focusing on Maine, which allocates its electoral college votes by Congressional district, and where one district going for Trump might change the result. A reader who has been studying the numbers sends a link to 538 (“Democrats Should Panic … If The Polls Still Look Like This In A Week”) and adds: I presume Trump wins Nevada. Adjusting for that, if this is accurate Trump...

    WASHINGTON (AP) — The U.S. government has mistakenly granted citizenship to at least 858 immigrants who had pending deportation orders from countries of concern to national security or with high rates of immigration fraud, according to an internal Homeland Security audit released Monday. The Homeland Security Department's inspector general found that the immigrants used different names or birthdates to apply for citizenship with U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services and such discrepancies weren't caught because their fingerprints were missing from government databases. The report does not identify any of the immigrants by name, but Inspector General John Roth's auditors said they...

    Republicans who abandon the party by refusing to back presidential nominee Donald Trump might face opposition if they try to run in the future, the Republican National Committee Chair Reince Priebus told CBS’ “Face the Nation" on Sunday. "People who agreed to support the nominee, that took part in our process, they used tools from the RNC, they agreed to support the nominee," Priebus told host John Dickerson. "We are a private party, not a public entity. Those people need to get on board. "And if they’re thinking they’re going to run again someday, I think we’re going to evaluate...

The eighth was admitted, but no other details about that person's condition were released. The attack happened at around 8 p.m. Saturday at the Crossroads...

    Hillary Clinton’s lead in the polls has been declining for several weeks, and now we’re at the point where it’s not much of a lead at all. National polls show Clinton only 1 or 2 percentage points ahead of Donald Trump, on average. And the state polling situation isn’t really any better for her. On Thursday alone, polls were released showing Clinton behind in Ohio, Iowa and Colorado — and with narrow, 3-point leads in Michigan and Virginia, two states once thought to be relatively safe for her. It’s also become clearer that Clinton’s “bad weekend” — which included describing...

    The nation's largest police union on Friday endorsed Donald Trump for president, lauding his commitment to police officers.

    Bratislava (AFP) - German Chancellor Angela Merkel warned on Friday that the EU faces a "critical situation", as European leaders sought to plot the bloc's post-Brexit future at a summit without Britain. The 27 leaders -- minus British Prime Minister Theresa May -- gathered at Bratislava's towering castle overlooking the River Danube, determined to respond to the challenges of mass migration, security, globalisation and a stuttering economy. The aim was to thrash out a "roadmap" of reforms during talks in the Slovak capital's towering hilltop castle, and a boat trip down the Danube. Merkel said the bloc simply had to...

On Tuesday’s episode of “The Five” on Fox News, Williams was discussing an interview in which former President Bill Clinton told “CBS This Morning” anchor Charlie Rose his wife “frequently” found herself “severely dehydrated.” Clinton did quickly correct himself to say it did not happen frequently “but on more than one occasion.” Williams found a way to stretch like...

    Poor Hillary Clinton, the hits just keep a’coming. Leaked emails from Colin Powell show that the former secretary of state under President George W. Bush warned “Hillary’s mafia” about using him as a fall guy in the email scandal hanging over the Democratic presidential nominee.
