    Uneven Early Voting Become a Political Science Experiment. In 2012, well more than half of all voters in battleground states Florida and North Carolina cast their ballots before Election Day. In Florida, 56 percent of the electorate in the 2012 presidential race voted early and in North Carolina nearly 61 percent did the same. More Democrats than Republicans voted early in 2012 in both of these critical battleground states. As of October 21st, more Republicans than Democrats have cast ballots in Florida and North Carolina. In Florida, where in-person early voting begins in some counties beginning October 24th, Republicans currently...

    The 11 foot 8 Bridge, also known as the Norfolk Southern–Gregson Street Overpass, located in Durham, North Carolina, United States, has attracted international media attention, including front-page coverage in The Wall Street Journal,[1] because it frequently tears the roofs off of trucks as they pass under the bridge. The media has focused on video clips of the crashes, which are posted on the Internet for public viewing.[2] This railroad overpass along South Gregson Street in Durham, North Carolina, provides only 11 feet 8 inches (3.56 m) of vertical clearance.[3] The 76-year-old bridge cannot be raised, because nearby railroad crossings would...

No one was hurt in the incident, and police are now investigating. Clinton condemned the incident on Twitter Sunday evening. "The attack on the Orange County HQ @NCGOP office is horrific and unacceptable," she said. "Very grateful that everyone is safe." Meanwhile, Trump was...

    Nevada, North Carolina and Florida could all be decided before Election Day because of historic spikes in early voting, Clinton campaign manager Robby Mook said Thursday. "We are encouraging supporters to cast their vote early because it is possible ... that we could build an insurmountable lead in those key states before Election Day," Mook said on a press call with reporters. Wins in those three states would make it very difficult to imagine an Electoral College scenario in which Trump, the Republican nominee, would win the White House.

But a very different Charlotte came into the spotlight in the past few days. Move outside the city's core and there are neighborhoods like the one where a white police officer shot and killed a black man, Keith Scott, setting off violent protests. Places where residents tire of seeing police only when teams of officers sweep in to make arrests, and remember well other blacks killed by police officers who did not face...

Some even accused the City Council of being in league with Satan. But the idea for the law actually first took root quietly during July 2014 as two Charlotteans sat at Nova’s Bakery on Central Avenue, considering what more Charlotte might do to protect lesbians, gays and bisexual and transgender people from discrimination. It lasted less than 30 minutes, and the two men – City...

She’s never provided any documentation or proof of that ancestry. She’s not a member of any band of Cherokee, nor could she be. Still, she’s used the nonsense claim to her political and professional advantage. In the 1990s, while Warren was teaching at Harvard, she was granted tenure partly because of her claim of “Indian roots” and the college’s effort to boost their diversity hiring record....

    Famed filmmaker and gelatinous force of raging hypocrisy Michael Moore has threatened to eat North Carolina unless it agrees to allow men into women’s restrooms by high noon on Monday. “The way that North Carolina is imposing its morality upon others is just disgusting,” raged the multi-multi-millionaire who has made many fortunes by crafting and selling movies on the evils of capitalism. “And if North Carolina doesn’t cave completely to my demands to obliterate gender distinctions and let men into women’s restrooms, I’m literally gonna eat the whole sorry state for lunch!” The threat to eat the entire state was...

    The next time a college professor starts lecturing on the importance of a free and open marketplace of ideas beware. He’s probably going to offer a few platitudes before he throws in an awkward “but,” and then shows his true beliefs about free expression. As a general rule, you can ignore everything that comes before the word “but.” It is usually after he utters his first “but” that he really starts to show his ass. At Western Carolina University (WCU) the faculty senate recently showed its true colors on an important issue of academic freedom. They were approached with an...

    Donald J. Trump routed Senator Marco Rubio in Florida on Tuesday, driving him from the Republican presidential race, and easily won the primaries in Illinois and North Carolina, amassing a formidable delegate advantage that will be exceedingly difficult for any rival to overcome. But with a victory in Ohio, his home state, Gov. John Kasich denied Mr. Trump one of the night’s biggest prizes and made it considerably harder for him to clinch the nomination outright. Senator Ted Cruz of Texas finished second in Illinois and North Carolina and was locked in a tight race with Mr. Trump in Missouri,...
