    Staying true to their party: All these bigwig Republicans who say they won't support Donald Trump will have two choices when they walk into the voting booth next month. They can vote for Hillary Clinton or Donald Trump. You know as well as I do that they will vote for the one who halfway represents their party. They will pull the lever for Trump. All this hogwash is just political nonsense. They don't want anyone to think they will vote for Trump, but they will. The only alternative is to vote for her.
  • Stockton Poll Shows Trump Holding Lead in South Jersey

    A few weeks ago the Stockton Polling Institute issued a statewide poll that showed Hillary Clinton leading Donald Trump in New Jersey by six points. And that was before the final two presidential debates and the release of the controversial “Access Hollywood” video that showed Trump years ago bragging about sexually assaulting women and the subsequent stream of women claiming he had done that to them. Maybe the Democrats are in good shape in New Jersey as a whole. But the GOP is holding its own in South Jersey, according to a new poll released by the Stockton Polling Institute...

    CINCINNATI -- Hamilton County voters aren’t as eager to turn in their ballots so far this presidential election year.With two weeks to go before Election Day, early voting is lower than it has been in the last two presidential election cycles. As of Tuesday morning, 37,644 people had voted early in Hamilton County – which is 17,949 fewer ballots than were cast at this point in the 2012 election. And fewer people have requested absentee ballots so far – 6,000 fewer ballots this year than in 2012, and 1,600 fewer than 2008, according to Hamilton County elections data. That's Hamilton...

    Both Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump are pouring resources into the battle to win Florida as polling continues to show a extremely tight race in the critical swing state. A new poll out Wednesday from Bloomberg gave a slight advantage to the GOP nominee, who leads 45 percent to Clinton's 43 percent in a four-way race with Libertarian Gary Johnson (4 percent) and Green Party nominee Jill Stein (2 percent). The Bloomberg poll was the best result in the Sunshine State for Trump in weeks; he has trailed his Democratic opponent in RealClearPolitics' average of polls there since before the...

A Dec. 4, 2012 email obtained by Citizens United and shared exclusively with The Daily Caller shows that Paul McElearney, CGI’s head of member development, emailed Abedin asking if he could meet with Hillary Clinton during her trip to Ireland two days later. Abedin said that she could accommodate McElearney, and he then asked if several other people, including two CGI sponsors, could also meet Clinton. McElearney forwarded...

You may remember that Dallas Woodhouse headed up something called Carolina Rising during the campaign of 2014 — prior to his ascension to the top staff position at NCGOP HQ. Carolina Rising was touted as a PAC aimed at promoting Republican fortunes in the state. The PAC earned itself some unwanted attention on Election Eve 2014 thanks to a TV interview involving Dallas.

The 45-year-old’s concert at the Mawazine World Rhythms International Music Festival featured sexy dance moves and stage outfits that showed off the “Booty” singer’s famous assets. The group reportedly objected to Lopez’s May 29 performance because it “disturbed public order and tarnished women’s honour and respect.”

    Newly released numbers in Florida indicate a head-to-head battle for the state’s 29 electoral votes. Republicans account for about 654,000, or 41.5 percent of the votes, while Democrats account for 638,000, or 40.5 percent of the votes Tuesday morning, according to Politico Playbook. Florida Republicans cast 3 percent more ballots than Democrats by absentee mail-in voting in 2o12, according to NBC News. But, by Nov. 1, 2012 (five days before the Nov. 6 election date), fortunes were reversed, with Democrats turning in 3 percent more ballots. With 43 percent of the 4.3 million votes belonging to Democrats, and 40 percent...

    Around the world, pollsters have had some high-profile flops lately. In both the U.K. and Israel, pre-election polls earlier this year predicted much tighter races than actually occurred. Last year, Scots voted against independence by a wider-than-expected margin. In the U.S., many pollsters underestimated last year’s Republican midterm wave, and some observers have suggested that polls simply aren’t appropriate tools for studying certain subjects, such as religion. Cliff Zukin, past president of the American Association for Public Opinion Research and a Rutgers University political science professor, wrote recently that “two trends are driving the increasing unreliability of election and other polling...

    These are turbulent times. More and more Americans express frustration and disillusionment today with the political institutions that govern the nation. They clamor for an alternative to the incestuous and pernicious atmosphere dominating the capital. They see a vast array of lobbyists, elected officials and entrenched interests manipulating the levers of power for their own enrichment at the expense of ordinary citizens. The discontent isn’t confined by ideology or political philosophy. As Donald Trump confounded the pundit class in ignoring convention and protocol on his way to securing the Republican presidential nomination, a long-time socialist generated throngs of enthusiastic supporters...

    Those waking up to read the news this morning will undoubtedly be "shocked" by the latest ABC / Washington Post goal seeking report (aka "poll") that shows Hillary opening up a 12-point lead with likely voters after the latest debate last Wednesday. Ironically, this latest polling farce was "embargoed for release after 9 a.m." EST which will certainly make it a dominant topic of conversation on all the morning talk shows. Of course, like many of the recent polls from the likes of Reuters, ABC and The Washington Post, something curious emerges when you look just beneath the surface of...

    Donald Trump is no legal scholar, but at Wednesday’s presidential debate he showed a superior grasp of the U.S. Constitution than did Hillary Clinton. Amid the overwrought liberal fainting about Mr. Trump’s bluster over accepting the election result (see below), Mrs. Clinton revealed a view of the Supreme Court that is far more threatening to American liberty. Start with her answer to moderator Chris Wallace’s question about the role of the courts. “The Supreme Court should represent all of us. That’s how I see the Court,” she said. “And the kind of people that I would be looking to nominate...

    The Middle East Forum has released its 2015-16 “Islamist Money In Politics” list, charting the top ten recipients of contributions from Islamic organizations — and Hillary Clinton is at the top of the list. According to the Middle East Forum, their list tracks political donations from “from individuals who subscribe to the same Islamic supremacism as Khomeini, Bin Laden, and ISIS.” Clinton has received a total of $41,165 from individuals that the Middle East Forum describes as “prominent Islamists,” including $19,249 from senior officials of the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), which was declared a terrorist organization by the United...

    HILLSBOROUGH COUNTY, Fla. (WFLA) – Voting, choosing those who will represent us to govern our country, is a right many Americans hold sacred. So when 83-year-old lifelong Republican Marina Agosto received a new voter ID card that told her she was now a registered Democrat, she and her daughter Minerva headed to the Hillsborough County Supervisor of Elections office to find out why. “Something’s going on; something’s going on,” Agosto said. She is outraged that someone would use her name to commit voter registration fraud here in a swing state, where every single vote is so important. She is even...
