  • Fox News Poll: Trump tops Clinton in battlegrounds Nevada, N. Carolina, Ohio

    Donald Trump narrowly leads Hillary Clinton in the battleground states of Nevada, North Carolina, and Ohio. That’s according to Fox News statewide likely voter polls conducted Sunday through Tuesday evenings. Trump is helped by strong support from working-class white voters, while Clinton is hurt by a lackluster performance among younger voters and women. In each state, Trump’s advantage is within the margin of sampling error.

    The leader of a statewide law enforcement union said Sunday Nevada’s expanded background check ballot question isn’t about protecting the Second Amendment — it’s about promoting public safety. Jim Dunlap, president of the Nevada Association of Public Safety Officers, told the Las Vegas Sun he disagrees with most of the state’s sheriffs when it comes to Question 1. “As top law enforcement officials, they have an obligation to their employees and to the people who elect them,” he said. “They say their opposition is about the Second Amendment, but our stand is on public safety. This measure will make it...

    The race across the combined battlegrounds is as tight as can be, tied 42 percent to 42 percent.  Clinton was up one point last week, and was up two points back on Labor Day weekend. Voters in these states are still looking for change, while the partisan divide remains particularly deep. Fifty-five percent of battleground voters want to see “big changes” in the nation’s politics and economy in the next few years. Forty-three percent want “some changes” and only 2 percent think things are fine and not in need of much change. Trump leads by a wide margin on being trusted to change Washington: Forty-seven...

    Earlier this year, Justice Clarence Thomas caused a mild sensation among Court watchers when he asked his first question from the bench in a decade. His question to the government’s counsel was why should it be so easy for a citizen to be deprived of his or her rights under the Second Amendment. (I wrote about the incident and the underlying case here.) That question applies with equal force in a case where state officials have decided to deny gun permits to individuals who have been issued cards enabling them to purchase medical marijuana. Why should the fact that a...

    According to an article in this week’s Las Vegas Review Journal, the Guinn Center, an independent think tank, took a close look at the Question 1 gun control ballot initiative. The study had this to say about Question 1: [it could] be a challenge to enforce, if not altogether unenforceable, without a firearm registration scheme — especially in rural counties with limited resources; [a] claim made by the measure’s opponents seems to be supported by a 2001 Department of Justice survey of inmates, which found that less than 1 percent of the criminals obtained a gun through an unlicensed sale...

    West Long Branch, NJ - The race for Nevada's electoral votes has flipped from two months ago, with Donald Trump now holding a slim 2 point lead over Hillary Clinton, whereas Clinton held a 4 point lead in July's Monmouth University Poll .

Standing before a judge in orange jail clothes with the word “detainee” across his back, Michael Steven Sandford acknowledged that he has been treated in the past for mental illness. Court documents say Sandford previously told a federal agent that he drove from California to Las Vegas with a plan to kill Trump. …

    The winner of the U.S. presidential election will be determined by about 17 swing counties, with a total of about 500,000 swing voters between them. The American public has heard that 12 swing states will determine who will be the next president. But a book, Presidential Swing States: Why Only Ten Matter, by Hamline University Professor David Schultz, who also edits the Journal of Public Affairs Education, predicts a very small number of America’s 3,142 counties and county equivalents will tip the balance. * In Ohio, it’s Hamilton County, home to Cincinnati; * In Pennsylvania, the key counties are Bucks...

    Election 2014 displayed one of the most incredible switches of U.S. Senate control in recent memory. The Republicans did not just take back the upper chamber—they wiped the floor with the Democrats. They bested some of their pettiest political tricks, including three different Democratic candidates in Montana, plus three-way races in other states. Nothing can top Election Day 1980, which produced a Republican majority with 12 Senate wins. Election Day 2014 produced nine seats, but could have been 11 if not for the intense infighting in Republican primaries. So, will 2016 turn into an epic landslide of the Democrats and...

    Nevada’s Senate race could not get much bigger. It is the only real chance Republicans have to flip a Democratic seat. The outcome could seal control of the Senate. For those who have followed the intrigue of recent campaign cycles, it is riveting for another reason. The battle to choose a successor to Senator Harry Reid, the retiring Democratic leader, is pitting Mr. Reid and his home-state political operation against his archenemies, Charles G. and David H. Koch, the billionaire industrialist brothers whom Mr. Reid has spent the past few years denouncing as the avatars of dark-money politics. This is...

    Last week, I noted that Nevada polling for Donald Trump painted a brighter picture for Republicans than national numbers suggested. The missteps that drove Trump’s numbers down nationwide didn’t seem to have impacted his standing in Nevada at all, and it appeared Hillary Clinton could lose a state Barack Obama won easily twice. Yesterday, Jon Ralston offered an in-depth look into the state of the race for Politico, as well as the fight to fill Harry Reid’s soon-to-be-vacant seat in the Senate. Ralston offered Republicans more good news than they’ve heard in a while, although it may not last: In...

    Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton has faced mounting criticism for her reticence to accept unscripted questions from reporters. After avoiding press conferences entirely for the better part of the past year, even CNN’s Anderson Cooper held her to task in a recent interview. “Well, Anderson,” the former secretary of state said when asked about her media blackout, “I’m talking to you now and I’ve given way in excess of 300 interviews this year.” When it comes to extemporaneously fielding queries from a traveling press pool, however, Clinton remains tight-lipped. That trend was on full display in the reports of several...

    Reno, Nevada (CNN) Donald Trump continues to trail in key swing states, but that has not been the case in Nevada, a state that helped him clinch the Republican nomination. Hillary Clinton arrives Thursday to campaign in this battleground state that Barack Obama easily carried twice as both public and internal campaign polls show a dead heat here. Trump's resilience in Nevada is surprising considering Clinton's many advantages here: her access to the strong organizational muscle of labor, a growing Latino population that has chafed at Trump's tone on immigration, and Obama's successes, which laid the groundwork for her run.

A visibly frustrated Judge Anna Brown struck from the record a previous ruling that effectively allowed evidence from defendants’ Facebook accounts into next month’s trial. Despite calling an assistant U.S. attorney, two legal assistants and an FBI agent as witnesses, prosecutors weren’t able to explain to the court how protected information from 11 Facebook accounts used by defendants ended up being shared as part of discovery. Judge Brown ordered...

    Donald Trump’s team can use a bit of good news from a poll, and Suffolk’s survey of Nevada might just brighten their day — a bit, anyway. The poll, conducted Monday through Wednesday this week among 500 likely voters, shows Hillary Clinton in the lead, but only by two points, 44/42.

    They came in buses, from Utah and elsewhere, excited to help elect Mitt Romney in 2012. Spanish-speaking Mormon volunteers — former missionaries at ease making phone calls, knocking doors, and pitching strangers on the street — were a unique resource for the Republican nominee in the key southwest swing states. In East Las Vegas, a Latino working-class neighborhood where the Romney campaign opened the first Republican office, around 10% of the volunteers were Spanish-speaking Mormons, according to former Romney aides. Outreach efforts in Colorado were similarly infused with bilingual Latter-day Saints. Romney’s hardline immigration stance made the candidate a tough...

    On election night 2016, the nation’s attention might be focused on Nevada, where Republicans have their most promising, and probably their only realistic, chance to capture a Democratic Senate seat. Harry Reid, Senate minority leader, is retiring, and Republicans’ hopes of retaining their majority might depend on Joe Heck replacing Reid. He is a strong candidate for his party, as his opponent is for hers. Catherine Cortez Masto is a former two-term state attorney general who won reelection even against the 2010 anti-Democratic wave. She would be the Senate’s first Latina. Heck, an emergency room physician and a brigadier general...

    Greg Nash Speaking for the last time at a Democratic convention as a party leader or elected official, Senate Minority LeaderHarry Reid (Nev.) used the occasion Wednesday to unload on Donald Trump, calling him a “hateful con man.” Reid blamed what he called the divisive tactics of Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) and other congressional Republicans for enabling Trump’s rise. “His Republican Party decided that the answer to hard-working Americans' dreams is to slander our African-American president, stoke fear of Muslims, sow hatred of Latinos, insult Asians, and, of course, wage war against women,” Reid said. “In other...

    Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) said Thursday that a bill targeting sanctuary cities that refuse to enforce immigration laws would “undermine the ability of local law enforcement to police their own communities to ensure public safety.” “Senator Toomey”s bill will undermine the ability of local law enforcement to police their own communities to ensure public safety. It would deny millions of dollars of critical community and economic development funding to cities and states that refuse to target immigrant families,” Reid said in a speech on the Senate floor. Sen. Pat Toomey’s (R-Pa.) bill, the Stop Dangerous Sanctuary Cities Act,...

    DENVER – Once a swing state in presidential elections, Colorado has teetered on becoming solidly Democratic. Donald Trump may have pushed it over the edge. Trump’s disparaging words about Mexicans, negative comments about women and weak campaign organization have punctuated the state’s shift from a nip-and-tuck battleground to one that’s Democrat-friendly. ... And it’s not just Colorado. Trump’s inflammatory rhetoric and weak campaign structure could ensure that perennially competitive Nevada and New Mexico are out of reach as well.
