    Pro-Life Legislator Defeated Pro-Abortion Candidate Alec Baldwin Backed Thanks to Pro-Life Group’s Help The political models of large television, radio and direct mail buys that have dominated so much of political life and the tactics of the consultant classes don’t work well for the generation of voters coming of age. And for those interested in sharing a political message, perhaps the best news of all is that changes in tactics can be extremely cost effective, at least until biased social media platforms block free speech. Launched this year, Students for Life Action engaged in the Virginia election using a volunteer...

    Have you ever wondered how far left the Democratic Party has gone since 2008, let alone 2016? Well, as an example, former President Barack Obama likely would have been chased off the campaign trail had he made some recent comments of his as a 2020 Democratic primary candidate. On Tuesday, President Obama told an audience at the Obama Foundation Summit that they need to get over being "woke" and realize that simply judging people and "casting stones" does not equate to activism. "This idea of purity and you’re never compromised and you’re always politically woke and all that stuff, you...
  • Teen Vogue Surveys Politics of 20 Youths; Not One Conservative

    You pretty much know that the leftist hive of Teen Vogue would exclude conservatives in its survey of youth politics when the synopsis of each young person from 16 to 24 featured is prefaced by the sentient being's preferred pronouns. Preferred pronouns, of course, are one of the easy symbols to recognize that any such article would act as if conservative or Republican youth would be considered to be creatures from another world thus not even within the Teen Vogue realm of being considered for attention. The best Teen Vogue could do is the occasional “unaffiliated.” But no conservatives.

    In 2016, Mari Copeny wrote a letter to President Barack Obama to ask him for help addressing a problem in her hometown. Copeny, a resident of Flint, Michigan, wanted Obama to visit the city to address the ongoing water crisis. "I've been doing my best to march in protest and to speak out for all the kids that live here in Flint," Copeny wrote, referring to the city's tainted water supply due to government corner-cutting. She added that she was going to travel to Washington, D.C., for the congressional testimony of Rick Snyder, then the Michigan governor. At the time,...

    Greece's opposition party New Democracy are set to win the country's snap general election, exit polls suggest. Led by Kyriakos Mitsotakis, the centre-right party is projected to defeat Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras's leftist Syriza party. New Democracy is forecast to win 38-42% of the vote, while Syriza is projected to win 26.5-31.5%. That would give New Democracy an outright majority, as the winner receives 50 extra seats in parliament. The first official results are expected later on Sunday evening. What does New Democracy stand for? New Democracy has promised to lower taxes and privatise services in the country, which is...

    A new Harris Poll commissioned by the pro-LGBT media group GLAAD shows that the percentage of non-gay Americans aged 18-34, who are considered allies of the LGBT community, fell from 63% in 2016 to 45% in 2018. In addition, the percentage of non-gay Americans aged 18-34 who felt uncomfortable in personal situations involving LGBTQ persons increased. For instance, the percentage of normal Americans who felt “uncomfortable” in learning a family member is LGBTQ rose from 24% to 36%. Sarah Kate Ellis, president and CEO of GLAAD, said of the survey’s findings, “The decline in acceptance [of LGBTs] and rise in...

    Joe Biden may give Donald Trump a run for his money in the race for irreverence.  Trump slaughters sacred cows of propriety like a walleyed abattoir worker with a bolt gun.  But gaffe-prone Biden once again proved that savoir-faire isn't his strong suit, and it may cost him a key Democratic Party demographic. No, I'm not referring to his blue joke about being a politically apathetic college jock, when he and his rakish peers had only two concerns: "jobs and panty raids."  That comment may leave #MeToo adherents miffed, but it's endearing enough to make the Scranton-born V.P. competitive in Pennsylvania. The quip...

    President Trump is falsely portrayed as evil, ignorant and incompetent in much of the news and entertainment media. Liberal college professors look down their noses at him. An army of left-wing special interest groups claim he’s just about the worst president in U.S. history. Yet he remains popular – including among young people. A Zogby Poll published this week indicates that President Trump is enjoying a 51 percent overall voter approval rating among all Americans – with 30 percent saying they “strongly approve” of his job performance and 21 percent saying they “somewhat approve.” This is higher than rock star...

    I had an interesting conversation last night with a young girl I work with. Her sister is attending college in Connecticut. Apparently at the college she was encouraged to register to vote. She had explained that she lives in New York and had already applied for an absentee ballot. She was told since she spends seven months in college she should register in Connecticut. (She is a freshman, so has only been in CT a few months) She registered and I assume will vote. The girl I was talking to said her sister asked her to pick up her NY...

    --A survey from Harvard Kennedy School's Institute of Politics shows a more politically mobilized crop of young Americans leaning away from Trump and the GOP in the midterms in near-equal proportions. --At the same time, the 18-to-29-year-old respondents appear to exhibit more support for some progressive policies. --Forty percent of them said they will definitely vote in the upcoming elections, according to the study. The newest generation of voters are more energized to vote in the midterm elections than they have been in previous cycles — but not for President Donald Trump or the Republican Party, a recent poll found....

    Samantha | Age 22 | Old Bridge, New Jersey | Last Voted: 2016 2016 was such a disillusioning experience. Going into the election, I was so proud to be in this country at this moment, so proud to be voting for Hillary Clinton. I had my Clinton sweatshirt on all day. I was on Twitter telling people that if they didn’t vote they were dead to me — like the whole thing. Watching the results come in, it was just disheartening. My faith in the whole system was crushed pretty quickly. That was the first general election I could vote...

    A June poll from the Public Religion Research Institute, published in The Atlantic magazine, reported that just 28% of young adults 18 to 29 said they were absolutely certain to vote; but 74% of seniors (a group that voted for Donald Trump) were absolutely certain to vote. So Republican supporting seniors said they would be voting and 18 to 29 year olds were distinctly disinterested in voting. Of course you didn’t hear anything about this; but that doesn’t mean it is not a dangerous red flag for the Democrats. “That was June, and things change”, some would say. Nevertheless, that...

    Democrats are already worried about turnout this November, particularly because polling shows that the youngest voters – college students in particular – are the least enthusiastic and the least likely to show up at the polls. That gap extends up through the age bracket of the youngest millennials but mostly focuses on what’s now being called Generation Z. In Virginia, however, it appears that enthusiasm isn’t the only problem they have. Young voters there are complaining that they can’t mail in their absentee ballots. Why? Because many of them can’t figure out where and how to purchase stamps to send...

    MSNBC host Chris Matthews had advice for the Democratic Party on “Morning Joe” Thursday, but said Democrats no longer listen to him, because he’s too old. Matthews was discussing voter demographics for the upcoming November midterms and claimed suburbia will vote against President Donald Trump’s agenda at the polls. (RELATED: MSNBC’s Chris Matthews Refers To Trump As An ‘Eight Year Old’ Spewing ‘Psychobabble’) “It is the people in the suburbs that read the paper, that keep up.

    White millennials are equally divided between supporting Republicans and Democrats in this year's critical midterm elections, as a campaign urging people to "Walk Away" from the Democratic Party has picked up steam online. Young people do not like President Donald Trump, but whites between the ages of 18 and 34 said they are equally likely to vote for a Republican as for a Democrat in the elections for Congress this November. A full 39 percent said that "if the election for U.S. Congress were held today," they would vote for the Republican in the district where they live. Another 39...

    While millennials still prefer the Democratic party over the Republicans, that support is tanking. In just two years, it dropped sharply from 55% to 46%. Meanwhile, their support for Republicans has remained roughly stable in the past two years, falling from 28% to 27%. *** Today, as many white millennials support the Democrats as the Republicans (each 39%). Just two years ago, Democrats still had a 14% lead over Republicans among white millennials. The trends are even more pronounced among white male millennials. Today, this group favors the Republicans over the Democrats by a staggering 11%. In 2016, Democrats led...
