    ATLANTA – The duel for the governor’s office in Georgia is a tale of two anti-establishment candidates, riddled with controversy and poised to make history. This once solidly red state is now considered to be in play. Meet the players On the right is Georgia’s top election official, two-term Secretary of State Brian Kemp, who captured President Trump’s attention and endorsement in the primary with his provocative campaign ads. The self-identified “everyman” is running on the premise of putting Georgians first. His opponent, the state’s former House Minority Leader Stacey Abrams, has already stamped the race historic – running as...
  • Larry Sabato: "Red Wave Ain't Going To Happen, It's Just A Question About How Big The Blue Wave Is"

    University of Virginia Center for Politics Director Larry Sabato joins MSNBC's 'MTP Daily' with host Chuck Todd to discuss the Republicans struggling in states Trump won in 2016. Sabato said Trump is in trouble in the Midwest, a part of the country where he did well in 2016, and it "seems to be flipping" in the midterm year. He said the states he carried, it appears, to elect Democratic Senators. "Even if the Republicans hold the Senate given the very pro-Republican math that exists, President Trump is in trouble in some of these states," Sabato said. "He's fallen considerably as...
  • Red wave? Not so fast, Republicans

    The Hill ^ | 10/07/18 10:00 AM EDT | DOUGLAS SCHOEN, OPINION CONTRIBUTOR
    Many Republicans believe that the Senate vote to confirm Judge Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court will shift the tide of a blue wave and increase Republican enthusiasm as we approach the November midterm elections. There is, however, a stronger chance that Democrats will benefit the most, politically, from the confirmation of a new justice. Indeed, Democrats will make significant gains among female voters who are deeply troubled with the way that Senate Republicans handled the very serious and very credible allegation of sexual assault made against Justice Kavanaugh by Christine Blasey Ford in her testimony before the Senate Judiciary...

    The Cook Political Report ^ | September 21, 2018 | Jennifer E. Duffy
    As the political environment continues to favor Democrats and likely to rob Republicans of their majority in the U.S. House and a handful of gubernatorial seats, the conventional wisdom is that the fate of the GOP’s Senate majority will rest more on political geography than the way the partisan winds are blowing. Maybe. The map continues to favor Republicans as Democrats are defending 10 seats in states that President Trump carried, four of which are in the Toss Up column, while two others are in Lean Democratic. In keeping with the notion that geography is destiny this cycle, the one...
  • The impeachment delusion: Democrats dreaming about impeachment would have no clue what hit them

    It’s actually surreal to think how easily the media can dupe people into thinking that President Trump is going to be impeached and possibly removed from office. For the last five-and-a-half years of the Bush administration, the Democratic Party howled that Bush “lied us to war to enrich his friends.” In the history of democracy, this is probably the most egregious charge ever leveled against a democratic leader. With more than 4,000 dead and tens of thousands maimed for life “under false pretenses,” it easily dwarfs the famed Watergate scandal, in which no one died. And yet the Democrats of...

    CHARLESTON, W.Va. — There hasn't been a darker moment for a president — or for the presidency — since Richard Nixon resigned on the verge of impeachment in 1974. On Tuesday, Michael Cohen, the president's longtime fixer and former personal lawyer, pleaded guilty to felony crimes that included illegally paying women hush money to help Donald Trump win the presidency in 2016. Most important, he said he did so at Trump's direction. In other words, Trump cheated to win the White House, according to one of his closest former associates. Cohen's admissions were so damaging for the president, both legally...

    The following are all real comments made on various social media or comment sections last night regarding New York Attorney a General article Schneiderman. So much denial and delusion, I had to laugh. -- This is exactly what worries me......I'm wondering if Trump is behind this. He and his mob are getting him out of the way. I don't trust Trump and the Russians. This could very well have been a hit job. . Sounds like Schneiderman is into rough sex. Trump probably sent the same goons (Israeli mafia aka Black Cube) after him that he sent after those 2...

    For more than a year now, you could hear the word echoing from Congressional offices and TV studios all over Washington DC: Russia, Russia! Mind you, these are the exact same people who spent more than 7 decades making excuses for the Soviet Union; yet, the Democrats and their mainstream media pundits were suddenly convinced that Russian spies have invaded the US (and the internet by the way) back in 2016, thus trying to destroy America’s democracy and install their golem in the White-House. Trump only won because, of course, he was Vladimir Putin’s pet. That was the left’s claim....

    This is just a generic link to the website. I can't believe what I just heard in a live on-air interview with f Chuck Todd. F Chuck Todd just told the on-air host that an argument can be made that the players have won and their dispute with the president. F Chuck Todd apparently hasn't been on social media, or wasn't looking at the fans at Green Bay last night. This is how dishonest the news media has become they are now outright lying about what has happened.

    Hillary Clinton said Tuesday that she would have been called a "genius" and her campaign "perfect" if she had won the 2016 presidential election.   In an interview with WNYC, the former secretary of State reflected on being the first female presidential nominee of a major political party. She said that because of the hurdles women face, she would have been hailed as brilliant if she won.

    The banal news that Donald Trump Jr tried to get dirt on Hillary exposes Progressive delusions as a collective dementia unresponsive to actual facts.In 1848, Charles Mackay published Memoirs of Extraordinary Popular Delusions and the Madness of Crowds. The preface to his first edition explains the idea behind the title: THE OBJECT OF THE AUTHOR in the following pages has been to collect the most remarkable instances of those moral epidemics which have been excited, sometimes by one cause and sometimes by another, and to show how easily the masses have been led astray, and how imitative and gregarious men...

    Hillary Clinton was inspiring to us all on this campaign trail and while she may have lost the electoral college, clearly the population loves her. Hillary Clinton was inspiring in so many ways throughout this presidential race and it reminds us that Hillary isn’t just a great candidate for President. She has continued to prove herself time and time again and shows us just how amazing she really is. She is inspiring and wants us all to look for the best in ourselves and we owe that much to her. From all her quotes that continue to show us how...

    Ìt will be hard to say goodbye to President Obama. But what if instead of sulking about the next four years, we plan an epic sendoff to end all sendoffs? I picture a festive parade with bands playing and people lining the streets holding signs as Obama's motorcade slowly makes its way from 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue for the final time. I envision Obama's being so moved by the outpouring of love and emotion that he and Michelle Obama emerge from their limousine and walk down the street just as they did during both Inauguration parades. We could make it into...

    We do not see, often enough, the people who love Hillary Clinton, who support her because of her qualifications rather than because of her unqualified opponent, who empathize with her. Yet millions of Americans, women and men, love her intelligence, her industriousness, her grit; they feel loyal to her, they will vote with enthusiasm for her. Human beings change as they grow, but a person’s history speaks to who she is. There are millions who admire the tapestry of Hillary Clinton’s past: the first-ever student commencement speaker at Wellesley speaking boldly about making the impossible possible, the Yale law student...

    My brother Evan was born female. He came out as transgender 16 years ago but never stopped wanting to have a baby. This spring he gave birth to his first child. When the call came, my brother was at work in the open office in Cambridge, Mass., he shares with seven colleagues who, like him, help run clinical trials for a drug developer. The phone number came up blocked, so he knew it must be the doctor. He stood up, unsteady on his feet. Was he a little nauseous? Or was that just adrenaline? He ducked into the hallway in...

    Persecution on a wide scale basis is knocking at the doorstep of every true believer, and the frequency and intensity of the knocking has exponentially increased. Just 8 years ago, no one was confused about which bathroom to use...and now, you can be expelled from West Virginia University for not properly using the correct invented pronoun to address anyone who is in a state of "transition" (read: Confusion). There has been a swing in the societal pendulum from common sense to delusion, and the argument can be made that the momentum has significantly increased over the course of the past...

    Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump predicted during a rally Friday night that he will win 95 percent of the African-American vote after his first term in the Oval Office. In a speech in which he made a plea for votes from the African-American community, Trump told supporters in Dimondale, Mich., that he will become the overwhelming choice of black voters in 2020. "Look how much African-American communities have suffered under Democratic rule. To those I say the following: What do you have to lose by trying something new like Trump? What do you have to lose?" Trump openly asked. "I...
