    Polls appear to show that Mr Trump is losing ground to Democrat rival Joe Biden in the upcoming presidential election. Amid the reports, the president is alleged to have shouted down the phone at his campaign manager Brad Parscale, three sources “close to the matter” told CNN. Mr Trump is said to have criticised Mr Parscale for the recent spate in falling poll numbers, and at one point threatened to take legal action. One Republican told CNN that: “He’s p** because he knows he messed up in those briefings.” Both the Trump campaign and the White House have not issued...

    The man who managed former President Barack Obama’s campaign has been slapped with a $90,000 fine for using Mayor Rahm Emanuel’s private email account to lobby the mayor on behalf of ride-sharing giant Uber without registering as a lobbyist. Newly-appointed Chicago Board of Ethics Chairman Attorney William Conlon said the fine assessed against David Plouffe is the largest ever by the Chicago Board of Ethics. It represents $1,000 for every one of the 90 days that Plouffe failed to registered as a lobbyist after his November 2015 email to Emanuel on the mayor’s personal account. “Registration of lobbyists is important....

    NEW YORK — Donald Trump is shaking up his campaign's leadership amid flagging poll numbers, NBC News has learned. Kellyanne Conway — already a senior adviser to the campaign — told NBC News she has been promoted to the role of campaign manager. She confirmed that Paul Manafort will stay on as campaign chair but said Stephen Bannon, the co-founder of conservative Breitbart News, will come on board as campaign CEO. The moves were first reported by The Wall Street Journal and mark yet another round of internal shakeups for a campaign that seems to be struggling to find consistent...

    lorida police have charged Donald Trump's campaign manager Corey Lewandowski with simple assault in connection with an incident earlier in the month involving a reporter. Police in Jupiter, Florida issued Lewandowski a notice Tuesday to appear before a judge on May 4 for the misdemeanor charge. A surveillance video released by the police appears to show Lewandowski grabbing a reporter for Breitbart News as she tried to ask Trump a question during a March 8 campaign event. The police report states: "Lewandowski grabbed (Michelle) Fields' left arm with his right hand causing her to turn and step back." Fields showed...

    Fox News released a brutal statement Tuesday reacting to the announcement from the Donald Trump campaign that he would be bowing out of the next Republican presidential debate. "As many of our viewers know, FOX News is hosting a sanctioned debate in Des Moines, Iowa, on Thursday night, three days before the first votes of the 2016 election are cast in the Iowa Caucus. Donald Trump is refusing to debate seven of his fellow presidential candidates on stage that night, which is near unprecedented," the statement read. The network accused the campaign of leveling terroristic threats against debate moderator and...

    Lewandowski’s bluffing, just as Trump bluffed before the September debate in implying that he might not participate unless CNN devoted the proceeds to veterans groups. Stirring a little extra controversy is all part of Trump’s regular debate pre-game. And there’s not a ghost of a chance that Roger Ailes will meet his demand: Not only would he look weak in caving, he would humiliate the network’s new biggest star in doing so. If Fox wants to keep Kelly away from network news, agreeing with Trump that she’s tainted by bias and needs to be kicked off the panel would be...

    After House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi finally ripped Anthony Weiner’s “clueless” and “reprehensible” conduct last week, he basically hinted that she should go take a hike — and he’s been insisting that his campaign is going to continue as planned regardless of the newly surfaced revelations about the extent and timing of his sexting scandal.In new poll last Thursday, however, found that support for Weiner among NYC Democrats took a sudden and gigantic plunge, with his favorability rating dropping from 52 percent in June down to 30 percent. Now, for the internal implosion, via the NYT: In a new sign...

    Anthony Weiner’s already limp mayoral campaign suffered another huge blow yesterday, when his campaign manager reportedly abandoned the sinking ship. Danny Kedem quit as Weiner’s campaign point man following a disastrous week on the trail, the New York Times reported this morning. With Kedem out of the already shrunken campaign staff, the longshot City Hall bid appeared to be floundering. A campaign spokeswoman would not confirm or deny the report. Weiner stood firm despite his travails yesterday, spending much of the day in his apartment shooting a campaign ad.

    The question followed hard on the heels of the original Politico story and harder on the heels of Herman Cain’s dismissal of years-old allegations that he behaved inappropriately toward two women: Who leaked the information in the first place?Cain’s campaign manager says he has “no clue,” according to a report by The Daily Caller’s Alex Pappas. “I have no idea,” chief of staff Mark Block told The Daily Caller. “No clue. I would find it hard to believe that anybody from another campaign would do that, but then again this is politics. Isn’t it?” Guy Benson explains why it’s really...

    He is the man with the mustache who takes a rebellious drag on a cigarette in the Herman Cain Internet ad gone viral. "We've run a campaign like nobody's ever seen," he says before taking a puff. "But then America's never seen a candidate like Herman Cain." Meet Mark Block, Cain's unorthodox campaign manager. Perhaps no one is more responsible for the Georgia businessman's meteoric rise in the presidential polls than Block, a Republican strategist and tea party leader who's left a trail of questionable campaign work behind him. Block has been accused of voter suppression and was banned from...

    WASHINGTON (AFP) – Barack Obama seriously considered picking former foe Hillary Clinton as his vice presidential running mate last year but rejected her because he was worried about controlling Bill Clinton. In a new book, the US president's 2008 campaign manager David Plouffe reveals the behind-the-scenes calculations as Obama searched for a vice presidential nominee and finally settled on Joe Biden. "If his central criterion measured who could be the best VP, she had to be included in that list," Plouffe wrote in advance excerpts of the book "Audacity to Win" published in Time magazine. "She was competent, could help...

    The master of "astroturfing" has a second firm that shapes public opinion for corporations. David Axelrod has long been known for his political magic. Through his AKP&D Message and Media consultancy, the campaign veteran has advised a succession of Democratic candidates since 1985, and he's now chief strategist for Senator Barack Obama's bid for President. But on the down low, Axelrod moonlights in the private sector.

    IT'S A DAY when the Bush bounce has hit Kerry supporters upside the head. The morning papers are full of polling reports suggesting that the president is on a roll. The pundits are full of rumors about a Kerry campaign shake-up. The party that came out of the Boston convention in single-file unity has returned to its default position: a circular firing squad with the campaign strategists in the middle. The partisans in the street are frantic that the Bush campaign will "do it again" and take the low road to victory. At the center of this September anxiety attack,...

    When a Massachusetts official attacked Sen. John Kerry in the media, Kerry's chief of staff called to rein him in. The conversation grew heated, and the official growled: "So I criticized your guy. What are you gonna do, spank me?" Perhaps. As chief of staff for the Massachusetts senator and presumed Democratic presidential nominee, David McKean handles assignments of all stripes. Observers describe McKean as Kerry's "alter ego" and his "confidence man." McKean is so in tune with Kerry's instincts, aides say, he will play a "significant role" in choosing a vice presidential running mate. His own name has been...
