Trump’s favorable rating is 7 points higher now than it was when the college conducted its last poll just before Election Day. Likewise, his unfavorable rating has dropped by 10 percent in the same period, from 63 to 53 percent. Trump lost the largely Democratic state...

    Washington, D.C. - Congressman Charles B. Rangel introduced, H.J. Res 103, a bill today that would allow Congress to vote to eliminate the Electoral College system and decide future presidential elections by the outcome of the popular vote. This legislation is the House companion bill to S.J.Res.41, introduced by Senator Barbara Boxer (D-CA) on November 15, 2016. I came to Congress on the heels of the Civil Rights Movement, and I know how hard we fought for the sacred right to vote, said Rangel. To protect it, everyone should have access to the vote, and every vote must count. The...

Although many GOP leaders have called for Trump to step down just 31 days before the general election, a group of his supporters gathered in Manhattan Saturday outside Trump Tower, where top campaign officials and surrogates met throughout the day. Just one day ahead of the Clinton v. Trump debate in St. Louis, the campaign efforts have...

    Republicans may not be committing political hyperbole this year when they say their presidential candidate can win Pennsylvania, experts say. Every election since Pennsylvania went for Bill Clinton in 1992, Republicans have declared this time the Keystone State will turn red. And every cycle they fail. This year might be different, according to experts in electoral math. Republicans don't need Pennsylvania to win the electoral vote, but Democrats do, and a loss here for Hillary Clinton on election night would likely mean she loses the White House by the morning, said Lara Brown, director of George Washington University's political management...

    Extending an olive branch to Bernie Sanders and his supporters, Hillary Clinton on Wednesday will announce a plan to make in-state public colleges and universities free for students from families who make less than $125,000 a year. Sanders made free in-state tuition a core plank of his campaign for the Democratic nomination, and Clinton and Sanders discussed the issue in their meeting last month, according to a Clinton aide. Clinton often mocked that plan from Sanders during the primary, saying she didn't want taxpayers to pay for Donald Trump's kids' education. Her plan includes an income cap Sanders' did not....

While Clinton waits to hear her fate, some wonder if an indictment would help the all-but-defunct campaign of her rival, Bernie Sanders.

Voters overwhelmingly think Democrat Hillary Clinton will be the next president (whether they want that or not), but when they are asked specifically who would be the better candidate to handle the economy, 51% say Trump and only 43% say Clinton, according to the latest CNN/ORC poll released Tuesday morning. Clinton is fighting back to change that impression. In a fiery speech Tuesday, she lashed out at Trump, calling him reckless and dangerous for the economy. His policies would cause 3.5 million Americans to lose...

    President Obama is aggressively campaigning against Donald Trump, likening the presidential race to a Clinton-Obama vs. Trump race, NBC News reports. Obama has inserted himself more directly into the campaign than previous second-term presidents, writes NBC News. He is effectively turning the election into Obama-Clinton v. Trump, instead of a traditional contest between the two people with their names on the ballot. Obamas efforts to keep Trump out of the Oval Office are historically unprecedented among second-term presidents. Normally, they only get heavily involved in supporting a candidate after party nominating conventions. But since January, Obama has heavily criticized Trumps...

    The Bern Report ^ | June 15, 2016 | Shawn Skager
    Four-time presidential candidate Ralph Nader has a bit of advice for Democratic candidate Sen. Bernie Sanders. Stay in the race. In an opinion column run this week in TIME magazine Nader said Sander should ignore cries from the Hillary Clinton campaign that he is playing the spoiler and stay in the race until at least the convention, if not longer: There are still lessons that Sanders can teach the decadent corporate Democrats for whom this 2016 campaign may be their last hurrah. It is called political energy. It is the lack of political energy that explains why the Democratic Party,...

    For the second time in two years, New York State Assemblywoman Claudia Tenney visited with the The Dispatch newsroom for a wide-ranging discussion of current issues while campaigning throughout the 22nd Congressional District.

The heavily-Republican district includes all of Chenango,...

    One day after the worst mass shooting in American history, Tennessee State Rep. Andy Holt (R) said he plans to give away two AR-15 assault rifles the same kind of weapon used in the massacre as a door prize at an upcoming political fundraiser. Holt, a self-described conservative Christian, had announced last week that he would give away one AR-15 at Hogfest, a barbeque fundraiser on his farm that has a petting zoo and hay rides. But when reporters asked him after the Orlando, Florida, shooting on Sunday whether he still planned to give away the assault weapon,...

    Can we say goodbye to the phony three point lead the MSM has given to Hillary? After the "Horror In Orlando", how could Hillary possibly gain in the polls? If anything, she should shoot down to 35% and Trump should easily move closer to 50%. Why would anyone even consider voting for Hillary after we all saw a "Preview Of President Hillary" last night?

    Top Donald Trump surrogate Sen. Jeff Sessions on Sunday called for tougher screenings of Muslims coming into the United States in the wake of the mass shooting at a gay Orlando nightclub.

Theres just within the wonderful group of Islamic people, a certain group of radicals and its been there for a long time and it seems to be growing. We have to accept that fact. Sessions said the attack, that left approximately 50 people dead and 53 wounded will mean further...
