    Voters casting ballots early in Sarasota say Trump was a big factor in their vote this year Sarasota retiree Patricia Rardin doesn’t always vote in midterm elections. “It depends on the issues,” said the 66-year-old former medical transcriptionist after she cast her ballot early over the weekend. “This one was important. I want to get rid of the people who vote alongside Trump.” Rudy Fraccio used to vote for Democrats but now believes the party is too liberal. The 85-year-old Sarasota health care worker voted a straight Republican ticket over the weekend, in part to support President Donald Trump. “I...

    Early voting numbers from several key battleground states now show Republican voters turning out in far greater numbers than Democratic ones, signaling an initial GOP surge that may dull the prospects of a so-called "blue wave" on Nov. 6. Republican voters have taken the lead in turnout numbers in Georgia, Indiana, Montana, Texas, Tennessee, Florida and Arizona -- states that Fox News analyses show are the scenes of close and pivotal House, Senate and gubernatorial races. The results are most striking in Tennessee, where 63 percent of early voters are affiliated with the Republican Party, compared to only 30 percent...

    As we wind down this election, we begin to hear the familiar chime: The election is over and/or can be predicted because of what we see in the early vote. Don’t buy it. While we might be able to make some broad projections based upon early voting – maybe – we’re more likely to substitute our own judgments and arbitrary intuitions for actual results.

    Hillary Clinton’s campaign is urging officials in Florida to extend the state’s voter registration deadline in response to Hurricane Matthew.“The one thing we are hoping and expecting is that officials in Florida will adapt deadlines to account for the storm,” Clinton campaign manager Robby Mook said Thursday. “The voter registration deadline in Florida is Oct. 11 and our hope would be that a little bit more time would be given for people who were expecting to be able to get registered before the election.”“We certainly expect that the governor and local officials will make that possible,” he said.

    Republican presidential candidate Carly Fiorina says her campaign is in it for the long haul, and as such it’s not yet the right moment to begin a campaign ad blitz. “There will come a time for ads, but honestly, other candidates have already spent millions on ads and it’s done nothing for them. So I think the time is not yet,” she said Friday in South Carolina, according to the New York Times. Fiorina, the former CEO of Hewlett-Packard, says her focus right now is on earned media, particularly in debates. “Every time I get out on that debate stage,...

President Barack Obama said the United States was at the forefront of “opposing Russia’s aggression against Ukraine, which is a threat to the world, as we saw in the appalling shoot-down of MH17.” German Chancellor Angela...
