    The Legal Record ^ | August 30, 2016 | Gillian Flaccus, Tamara Lush and Martha Irvine
    The oldest millennials – nearing 20 when airplanes slammed into New York City’s Twin Towers – are old enough to remember the relative economic prosperity of the 1990s, and when a different Clinton was running for president. The nation’s youngest adults – now nearing 20 themselves – find it hard to recall a reality without terrorism and economic worry. Now millennials have edged out baby boomers as the largest living generation in U.S. history, and more than 75 million of them have come of age. How they vote on Nov. 8 will shape the political landscape for years to come....

    Hot Air ^ | August 29, 2016 | Allahpundit
    This is his second TV spot of the general election campaign but it’s backed by bigger bucks than the first one, on immigration, was. That ad received an initial buy of $4.8 million to air in four key battleground states. This one’s getting $10 million to air in nine battlegrounds, the big three of Ohio, Florida, and Pennsylvania plus North Carolina, New Hampshire, Iowa, Nevada, Virginia, and Colorado. Why Team Trump is wasting money on those last two states, I’m not sure: They’re all but goners and he doesn’t need them to win on his most probable electoral path to...

    Neera Tanden, president of the Center for American Progress and a former Hillary Clinton aide, blamed Clinton’s poor polling on her primary opponent, Sen. Bernie Sanders (I., Vt.), during an interview posted Monday. While many polls show Clinton beating Donald Trump, polls also show most people having a negative view of the Democratic nominee. Tandem placed the blame on Sanders’ attacks against Clinton during their primary battle in an interview with Politico’s Glenn Thrush, adding that the Vermont senator has let Trump continue those attacks in the general election. “He did do significant damage to Hillary’s negatives,” Tanden said. “I...

    ANAHEIM – About 100 supporters of Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump rallied at Anaheim City Hall on Sunday afternoon, arguing that his support among the Latino community is stronger than has been widely reported. The rally, organized by Latinos for Trump, was part of an initiative termed Operation Taco Bowl – an apparent reference to a Cinco de Mayo photo of Trump eating a taco bowl with a caption that read, “I love Hispanics.” Trump supporters took turns standing beside two mannequin caricatures of Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton and telling the crowd why they support Trump. Chants of “viva Trump”...

    Trump’s voters (and many are staying mum) are well aware of his flaws and might carry him to victory anyway. For what it is worth: Nothing is ever certain, and much could go wrong, but my money remains on a Trump victory. Why? 1) It feels a whole lot like Reagan in ’80 and Newt in ’94. Reagan was disliked by the establishment (who liked Baker or Bush), viewed with suspicion by professional conservatives (they liked Phil Crane, not a divorced, former Democrat, big-spending governor), and regarded with condescension by the media and the Left (who saw him as stupid...

    Donald Trump's campaign is planning its biggest ad buy to date — upward of $10 million on commercials airing over the next week or so. The campaign is expects the ads to air as soon as Monday in nine swing states: Ohio, Pennsylvania, North Carolina and Florida, where the campaign has already been on the air, along with New Hampshire, Virginia, Iowa, Colorado and Nevada. 2012 Republican nominee Mitt Romney lost eight of those nine states. Trump, the Republican presidential nominee, has so far been badly outspent by his Democratic rival, Hillary Clinton, and groups supporting her....

    INDIANAPOLIS — Donald Trump’s campaign picked the richest Republican city in Indiana - Carmel -- to open its only field office in the state. But a big splash from opening a headquarters in the Indianapolis suburbs doesn’t mean the campaign is overlooking rural Indiana. It’s set to get a piece of the Trump treatment, too. In a throwback to old-style political campaigns, leaders of the Trumpian movement plan to travel to small towns to woo supporters and shower them with yard signs and other Trump-for-president paraphernalia. They’re calling it the “Early for Trump Tour.” The rural swing will be led...

The leading discussion among the political punditry over the last week, besides the hysterical conspiracy theory that Vladimir Putin is somehow behind an elaborate scheme to undermine Hillary Clinton, has been around what is known as the "Bradley effect" – that controversial political candidates tend to poll worse than they actually perform on election day. The concept was bizarrely confirmed by the Washington Post’s Philip Bump in his...

It’s an occasionally amusing, sometimes tiresome, but never surprising line of inquiry. After all, among the many false narratives out there about Trump, the one pushed hardest is that he’s at odds with Latinos. But, like much of that rhetoric, it’s a deliberately simplistic assessment of the Latino electorate. And, for the record, yes —...

The Public Religion Research Institute found that Clinton leads nationwide among registered voters with 48 percent, Trump follows with 35 percent and two percent backed Libertarian Gary Johnson. This poll, unlike others, broke down support for each candidate by registered voters’ religious preferences. Trump’s support is strongest among white evangelical Protestants. Sixty-two percent of them back Trump and 23 percent support Clinton. Trump also leads among white mainline...

    Former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani, an adviser for Donald Trump's campaign, renewed rumors that something is wrong with Hillary Clinton's health. Talking to Shannon Bream on 'Fox News Sunday,' Giuliani suggested that the media was covering up 'several signs of illness' that he believed the former secretary of state was displaying. 'All you have to do is go online,' Giuliani said. 'Go online and put down "Hillary Clinton's illness." Take a look at the videos for yourself.' Giuliani was referring to a number of right-wing conspiratorial videos that suggest the 68-year-old Clinton is plagued by a number of...

    RUFFSDALE -- If you drive anywhere in Pennsylvania, from the turnpike to the old U.S. routes to the dirt roads connecting small towns like Hooversville with “bigger” small towns like Somerset, you might conclude that Donald Trump is ahead in this state by double digits. Large signs, small signs, homemade signs, signs that wrap around barns, signs that go from one end of a fence to another, all dot the landscape with such frequency that, if you were playing the old-fashioned road-trip game of counting cows, you would hit 100 in just one small town like this one. In Ruffsdale,...

    A federal judge is ordering Hillary Clinton to respond to questions in writing from the conservative legal watchdog Judicial Watch about the private email server she used as secretary of State. Judicial Watch, which has filed a lawsuit against Clinton over her email use, has sought to force Clinton to answer questions in person, which would have allowed attorneys to ask follow-up questions. U.S. District Judge Emmet Sullivan turned that request aside, however, ruling "less burdensome" efforts were required. "Judicial Watch’s argument that a deposition is preferable in this case because of the ability to ask follow-up questions is not...

    After seeing that photo of Hillary "Not Exactly Climbing The Stairs",then later seeing the footage of Hillary walking up to Joe Biden's home while clinging to a handrail,it should give us pause on what will happen on debate night when she has to walk to her podium without any assistance. How will Hillary pull this off?, They obviously wont be placing a thirty foot handrail from the left curtain to the podium.

    It’s pretty clear who Donald Trump wants to help, because he names them at every rally. Miners. Steelworkers. Guys on the assembly line, whose jobs are either being stolen by the Chinese or strangled to death by Obama’s regulations. If globalization has put your livelihood in jeopardy, Trump wants you on his side. And given his sky-high popularity among white men without a college degree, I’d argue this pitch is gaining traction. But here’s the weird thing: Folks in hard-hit industrial towns aren’t voting for Trump. When Michigan Republicans went to the polls in March, economists expected to see huge...

    Droves of people turn out to watch Republican nominee hand out water bottles and diapers as locals commend his efforts: ‘This is his stomping grounds’ The post-disaster politicking got under way in earnest on Friday, as Donald Trump appeared in flood-stricken Louisiana to give his image a presidential burnish, and as the White House announced Barack Obama would tour the area next Tuesday. A day earlier Louisiana’s governor, John Bel Edwards, had warned Trump not to show up in Louisiana “for a photo op”. Instead, he said, Trump should volunteer and make donations. Edwards also defended the delayed visit by...

    Gov. John Bel Edwards was forced to eat his own words when GOP nominee Donald Trump showed up in Baton Rouge today to donate and hand-out supplies for Louisiana flooding victims. Edwards’ spokesperson was silent on President Obama and Hillary Clinton’s failure to visit the state in the wake of the flooding crisis. But, the spokesperson took a swipe at Trump, saying he didn’t want him to show up with cameras and not actually help victims. “Donald Trump hasn’t called the governor to inform him of his visit,” Edwards’ spokesman said. “We welcome him to LA but not for a...

    Donald Trump cleared up one thing in his speech in Charlotte, North Carolina, last night: he is running to win. Throughout this very odd election cycle, some pundits have periodically suggested that Trump wasn't serious in his run for the presidency. First, it was said that he got into the race simply to garner publicity, to burnish his "brand." He himself, it was said, was surprised that he did so well in the primaries. When it became clear that he was poised to win the nomination, the story changed slightly. Now, he was said to be playing the buffoon because...
