    Is Hillary Clinton’s campaign pulling the plug on its hopes to win the batlleground state of battleground states: Ohio? That’s what CNN’s Jeff Zeleny wondered this morning as he noted Clinton has not been in the state since her epic Cleveland coughing fit on Labor Day. “So long Ohio? It’s been 20 days Hillary Clinton has stepped foot into this class battleground state, and she’s not expected to visit it again in the month of September,” Zeleny said. But it’s not because the campaign believes she has it sewn up, but rather the opposite. “That is a nod to the...

    Clinton Campaign Accepting The Loss of Ohio. Facing continually diminishing poll results in Ohio CNNs Jeff Zeleny reports the Clinton team is essentially ceding the state to save resources. Michigan could be the next to drop. Additionally, Team Clinton are relying almost exclusively on Philadelphia, and to a lesser extent Pittsburgh, to fend off a similar situation in Pennsylvania. Donald Trumps economic message and outlined America-First policy agenda is most effective in the states where Clinton/Bush/Obama and now candidate Clinton, policies have been the most disastrous for the middle class workers.

If the irate reaction from Republicans when New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie simply embraced Obama in the wake of Hurricane Sandy in 2012 is any measure, Kasich is in for a torrent of intense criticism from members of his own party. In the bizarre and unprecedented move, Kasich appeared at a White House press briefing to advocate for Obamas Trans-Pacific Partnership trade pact.

    The U.S. Supreme Court on Tuesday refused a request to restore a week of early voting in swing-state Ohio. The state's Democratic Party had asked the high court to suspend a ruling that allowed for the cut while Democrats and other plaintiffs appealed the issue. A lower court decision from last month upheld a law eliminating days in which people could register and vote at the same time, a period known as golden week. Democrats had claimed the reduction, along with other voting changes, disproportionately burdened black voters and those who lean Democratic.

    A new study from professors at Oklahoma State University has found that Republicans and Democrats have never been so far apart on climate issues. "What was once a modest tendency for Congressional Republicans to be less pro-environmental than their Democratic counterparts has become a chasmwith Republicans taking near-unanimous anti-environmental stances on relevant legislation in recent years, especially 2015," the study said. This distance between the parties was further exacerbated by the rise of the Koch-funded Tea Party, which took the hard line of fully dismissing the climate change threat, often making climate change a lightning rod for voters who were...

    NEW YORK (Reuters) - Republican Donald Trump appears to have carved out a wider path to the White House as a number of states including Florida and Ohio are no longer considered likely wins for Democratic rival Hillary Clinton, according to the latest Reuters/Ipsos States of the Nation project released on Saturday.
