    From Ivanka: Political reporters love to speculate about my role in my fathers campaign. By various accounts, Im a pundit, a surrogate, a top strategist and a potential running mate (that one was interesting!). The real answer is actually the simplest: I am a loving daughter who was raised by my parents to hold strong convictions and to pursue solutions to problems. In my life, Ive worked hard to do exactly that. We each have diverse political views and neither my site nor my company is, or ever will be, politically inclined.

    Trump campaign spokesperson Katrina Pierson left MSNBC anchor Kate Snow 'speechless' Wednesday, when she said that the candidate is not responsible for peoples' mistaken reactions to statements of his, that she sees being taken out of context. "If you listen to Donald Trump's rallies," Pierson said about comments this week about the Second Amendment, "He talks about this all the time --at every rally-- If Hillary Clinton is able to appoint Supreme Court candidates [who are] against the Second Amendment, there has to be something to stop her." "But does he have any responsibility for what people hear?" Snow asked....

    CNNs biased, Hillary-loving anchor, Jake Tapper overheard two older women discussing Trump at his gym. Youll recall that Jake Tapper was caught up in the recent Wikileaks DNC email hack when emails surfaced showing him colluding with the DNC to help fine-tune their message.

Yes, Id had plenty of career opportunities, and she would, too.

    Reveling in the U.S. Supreme Court's recent decision to strike down a Texas abortion law, a leading abortion rights activist on Monday cast the ongoing political battle as nothing short of a fight over "American values." Ilyse Hogue, president of NARAL Pro-Choice America, told a breakfast meeting of the Texas Democratic delegation that the "fight is not about abortion." Rather, she said, "this is a clash of fundamentally different ways of looking at the world." She then pointed to Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump and other top GOP leaders.

    When Hillary Clinton introduced her running mate to the nation, it was remarkable what topic got the crowd most excited: gun rights. Just the mention of the National Rifle Association Saturday prompted the room in Miami into a roar. At Brooklyn headquarters, aides smiled. This was, after all, the fight they wanted. Please, some thought, keep talking about guns. It was a fight that strategists saw as an upside: it calmed progressives furor over Kaine, seen in some circles as too moderate for a party still overcoming a passionate swoon with Bernie Sanders. And the subject of guns has a...

Mitt Romney launched a scathing attack on Donald Trump by suggesting the Republican presidential candidate would encourage racism, bigotry and misogyny. In a candid CNN interview during Romneys annual ideas summit near Park City, Utah, the 2012 presidential candidate said he would consider voting for Libertarian candidate Gary Johnson instead. Romney has maintained his position as one of the most outspoken Republican Trump critics despite House Speaker Paul...

Trump had a bigger lead among white males, with a whopping 60 to 26 percent lead in the polls. Needless to say, ABC News thought it was about time...

In a lengthy interview with the Huffington Post, Manafort also said Trump's selection needs to be well-seasoned in politics. "He needs an experienced person to do the part of the job he doesn't want to do. He sees himself more as the chairman of the board, than even the CEO, let alone the COO," Manafort said. The veteran political operative suggested that the highly anticipated choice should...

    New Mexico Governor Susana Martinez is my choice as Trump's VP as there are a number of strategic reasons (in order of importance) to choose her. By choosing a woman, Trump would silence a lot of critics and likely attract more women voters. And her being Hispanic could be a huge asset that kills two birds with one stone. Additionally she WAS a Democrat until 1995 - so her subsequent defection to the GOP is an added bonus that can be played up greatly. And lastly, New Mexico voted Democrat in 2000, 2008, 2012, with Bush only winning by 6,000...

    Sexism is driving women away from the GOP front-runner Donald Trump and the Republican Party, potentially providing a windfall to Hillary Clinton in a general election. But to ride women's discontent into the Oval Office, of course, Clinton has to win the Democratic nomination. And while she has maintained a strong advantage with women voters overall, she's not doing well with all women. White millennial women favor Bernie Sanders. Perhaps that's because the best rationale for Clinton's candidacy hasn't been effectively communicated to millennial women. There is a powerful case to be made for electing a woman president, and it...

Surveys suggest the controversies have taken a toll.

    A nasty feud that escalated Thursday between Donald Trump and his chief Republican rival over their wives set off a new wave of alarm among establishment Republicans, who fear that the GOP front-runner would drive away female voters in a general-election fight with likely Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton. Trumps gender problem flared again this week as he and Sen. Ted Cruz of Texas traded insults while Cruzs wife, Heidi, became the target of vitriol on social media from Trump and his supporters.

    This month, about half (47 percent) of Republican female primary voters said they could not imagine themselves voting for Trump. (About 40 percent of male GOP primary voters said the same.)

Only about three in ten female Republican voters say they can't imagine backing Ted Cruz (32 percent) and John Kasich (27 percent). The poll, which was taken before Marco Rubio exited the presidential race, also showed that only 30 percent of GOP women couldn't imagine backing the Florida senator.

Bernie Sanders (I-VT)16% ’ presidential campaign, saying it is “insulting” that women would be asked to vote for a female president based on gender alone. “I don’t vote with my vagina,” the 69-year-old Thelma and Louise star tweeted. “It’s so insulting to women to think that you would follow a candidate JUST because she’s a woman.” “HRC doesn’t rep my interests, @BernieSanders does. Simple as that,” she added, using an acronym for Hillary Rodham Clinton, Sanders’ rival for the Democratic nomination.
