    Clinton says Trump supporters don't "fully appreciate what is potential under this presidency." Hillary Clinton predicted Tuesday that President Donald Trump will "wholesale fire people" in the White House and become increasingly unaccountable, if Democrats don't check his power by winning a majority of seats in the House or Senate in the November midterm elections. Clinton made the remarks during the former secretary of state's appearance on MSNBC's "The Rachel Maddow Show." "What I worry about, Rachel, is that after this election this president is going to wholesale fire people," Clinton said. " ... And if we [Democrats] don’t have...

    NASHVILLE — A new CNN poll puts Democrat Phil Bredesen with a 50-45 percent lead over Republican Marsha Blackburn in Tennessee's U.S. Senate race. The SSRS survey of 723 likely voters, conducted Sept. 11-15, has a margin of error of plus or minus 4.3 percent.

    The arguments for doing the converse are getting a little silly. If you’re a long-time Republican voter, you’ve likely by now heard the growing and insistent and highly concerned media refrain: Republicans who truly care about America will vote for Democrats this fall. In RealClearPolitics last month, columnist Froma Harrop addressed the woes of Republicans in the age of Trump, offering her take on the only honorable options for this fall: “You can follow the lead of GOP strategist Steve Schmidt, conservative columnist George Will and others who have fled the party. Or you can stay in and help a...

    The Democrat party has moved considerably to the left for the 2018 midterm elections.  As part of that strategy, they have wholeheartedly embraced gun control as a winning issue. Here is a Democrat strategist explaining their thoughts on July 6th. Opinion from Since 1994, Democrats have shied away from gun safety believing that this fight is nearly impossible for Democrats to engage in and win because NRA supporters are more organized, energized and monetized. 2018 could finally be the end of 1994 Now, less than 125 days to another midterm election, the times they are a'changing. Obviously, there...

    The Hill/ MSN ^ | September 10, 2018
    Arizona's Senate race is in a dead heat, with Rep. Martha McSally (R) narrowly leading Rep. Kyrsten Sinema (D) by 1 point, according to a new poll. A Gravis Marketing poll found McSally ahead of Sinema 49 to 48 percent, a lead within the survey's 3.3-point margin of error. Three percent of voters are still undecided. Monday's survey is the first one this year where McSally, who recently won a competitive three-way primary, is polling slightly ahead of Sinema, who didn't face a fierce primary fight.

    President Donald Trump told supporters Thursday that if he is impeached "it's your fault 'cause you didn't go out to vote." "You didn't go out to vote -- that's the only way it could happen," Trump said during a rally in Billings, Montana. "I'll be the only President in history they'll say: 'What a job he's done! By the way, we're impeaching him,' " Trump said. "This election, you aren't just voting for a candidate, you are voting for which party controls Congress," the President said. "Very important thing. Very important thing." The rally in Montana -- where Trump was...

    WASHINGTON - The two top-ranking Democrats indicated Tuesday that their confidence is growing that their party will retake the House majority in November's midterm elections, as a new Washington Post-ABC News poll showed voters turning sharply against congressional Republicans. House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., sent a letter telling colleagues on Tuesday that Democrats "must Be Ready for the prospect that we will be in the Majority in January." Pelosi said that the top Democrats on House committees will write bills reflecting the party's "For the People" campaign agenda, with an emphasis on reining in health care coats, raising wages...

    The long-shot path to killing Brett Kavanaugh’s Supreme Court nomination runs through the heart of the American health care system — and right into the November midterm elections. Senate Democrats prepping for this week’s marathon confirmation hearings are zeroing in on the health care views of the man who could pull the nation’s high court to the right for a generation — and determine the fate of abortion rights, the social safety net and Obamacare itself, possibly within months. Their goal: to box Kavanaugh into committing to preserve those health care pillars. Or, failing that, to get the 53-year-old appellate...

    Welcome to Pollapalooza, our weekly polling roundup. Poll of the week A new Texas Senate poll came out this week showing Democratic Rep. Beto O’Rourke within 1 point of Republican Sen. Ted Cruz. It gave new life to a familiar question: Could Texas finally flip blue? Normally, this would be the point where we lecture everyone about the dangers of putting too much stock in one poll. But this poll wasn’t even much of an outlier — it came on the heels of a few others that also show O’Rourke within a few points of Cruz. That’s an awfully close...
  • For Both Parties, 1998 Midterms Offer a Lesson for '18

    There are many similarities between the 1998 midterm election and this one 20 years later. As philosopher George Santayana said, “Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it.” For both parties, the parallel situations -- and pitfalls to possibly avoid – are worth studying. Two decades ago, as is the case today, the president was being dogged by a special prosecutor and talk of impeachment was in the air, even as Americans enjoyed the benefits of a growing economy. Republican House Speaker Newt Gingrich built up expectations of a red wave in which the GOP would pick...

    **SNIP** Defending against her suggestion that he's a corrupt parallel to President Donald Trump in Washington and deflecting the odor of criminal prosecutions of people close to him, Cuomo tried to cast Nixon as a corporate donor herself who solicited "favors" from her friend de Blasio. "You're a corporation," he said, faulting the allegedly minimal way by which she disclosed her income tax forms. She noted that in his first race for governor in 2010, his disclosure followed the election. She said her business corporation is that of a small business owner. Also hyperbolically, Cuomo called agents of the Immigration...

    Lou Dobbs makes Arizona’s female version of Jeff Flake look like the RINO she is. KellyAnne Conway on Fox right now saying Trump endorsed her. No he didn’t. McTurtle and establishment money won the race for her. It was also a forgone conclusion she would win when Arpaio jumped in the race to siphon votes away from Ward. Of course Ward didn’t help herself in the end, but that was reallly immaterial. CNN already grinning ear-to-ear calling her a foe of the president and that she “beat back’ two “extreme hard-right candidates” for the win.

    WASHINGTON — Setting up an explosive general election battle, a Donald Trump-backed Republican and a Bernie Sanders-endorsed insurgent Democrat who prevailed in an upset will face off in the Florida governor race following primaries Tuesday night, NBC News projects. In a surprise win, Tallahassee Mayor Andrew Gillum, a black progressive who never led in a major poll, edged out former Rep. Gwen Graham, the politically moderate daughter of popular former governor and senator Bob Graham, in the Democratic primary. Gillum had 34.2 percent, or 510,450 votes, to Graham's 31.4 percent, or 468,448 votes, with 96 percent of precincts reporting. For...

    POTUS Trump endorsed candidates win in Arizona this evening. Republican, Martha McSally (Senate) & Republican, Doug Ducey (Governor) have easily won their primary races tonight. McSally will go on to be elected Senator from Arizona and, Ducey will be easily re-elected and maintain his Governor position. No Democrat "Blue Wave" in Arizona!!! Ducey will soon declare who he is appointing to serve the remainder of the Senate term of passed on, Senator John McCain. Hopefully he will appoint Ms. Kelli Ward to that assignment, rather then a McCain family member.

    Pretty decisive Only 29% for Ward. Blame Arpaio I guess. Ward is now damaged for the 2020 McCain rerun. We can only hope that turnout was high.
