    14 minute video on VJ's Facebook page reminding his fellow Democrats that Republicans told themselves over and over again that Trump had no chance at the nomination and now democrats are doing the same thing. He's worried. Some takeaways: *Democrat base demoralized. *Republicans underestimated his appeal. *Trump's "mistakes" weren't mistakes at all. *Trump makes great use of social media. But the money quote is this: "70 percent of African Americans have a horrible view of Donald Trump. In order for the Democrats to win the White House they don’t have to get 50 percent of the black vote or 60,...

Some speculated the timing of Kasich’s campaign sale is a sign of not-so-good things to come for the Ohio governor’s presidential hopes. Not so, said Team Kasich in a rebuttal Tweet this afternoon. The sale, according to the campaign, is the result of new goods available at the Kasich store because of new goods coming in and thanked reporters for getting the word out.

    To make public-sector jobs more accessible to convicts, President Obama has issued a new order prohibiting federal agencies from asking candidates about criminal history when applying for positions. It’s part of the commander-in-chief’s mission to reduce barriers to reentry and employment for incarcerated individuals once they leave jail. The new measure, announced in a Friday media dump, will affect tens of thousands of federal government positions funded with taxpayer dollars. Government often tries to escape fallout by burying controversial or bad news right before the weekend, but it’s difficult to keep this outrageous development below the radar. At the president’s...

    Republican presidential frontrunner Donald Trump has said Israel should continue building in Judea and Samaria, insisting the Jewish state should "keep moving forward" in response to Arab terrorism. Speaking to the UK's Daily Mail, Trump emphasized his support for the State of Israel, and appeared to veer away from previous comments in which he declared that he would stay "neutral" on the Arab-Israeli conflict. Trump referenced the "thousands of missiles being launched into Israel," by Arab terrorists prior to the 2014 Gaza war, asking rhetorically: "Who would put up with that? Who would stand for it?" He also said he...

Trump leads in the state with 61% to 22% for Ted Cruz and 14% for John Kasich. Trump, with a 67/24 favorability rating, is the only candidate GOP voters in the state even like. Both Kasich (32/50) and Cruz (32/53) come in with negative favorability ratings. Adding Carly Fiorina to the ticket has done little to help Cruz. Only 12% of voters say picking her as his running mate makes them more likely to vote for Cruz, compared to...
