Some of the most principled members of the conservative movement woke up Wednesday morning to an unrecognizable party — what had been an organization advocating fiscal and social conservatism has turned into something else entirely: a cult of personality. Populists. Know Nothings.
Beyond his disorderly abandonment of what was advertised as a democratic principle, Bernie Sanders has now validated the role of the superdelegates, no matter whom they ultimately choose.
Bernie Sanders is still far behind in delegates but he nonetheless managed to keep his agenda at the center of the Democratic race with a victory in Indiana over front-runner Hillary Clinton.
Despite Donald Trump’s frightening rise, Democrats have a better chance at winning the upcoming presidential election, according to surveys perform by RAND Corporation, a private, nonpartisan think tank.
Governor Terry McAuliffe says rules keeping ex-convicts from voting are holdovers from the Civil War, designed to prevent blacks from going to the polls. But Republicans say the governor is overstepping his constitutional authority to help a longtime political ally and fellow Democrat, Hillary Clinton.
On the eve of Indiana’s primary, Hillary Clinton is looking to add the state to her list of electoral victories over Bernie Sanders. But even if Sanders were to somehow win the state, Clinton will likely still capture the party’s nomination.
The extreme left now mirrors the extreme right, each reflecting the anger and unbending rigidity of the other. And the idea that politics is the art of compromise, where everybody gets something but nobody gets everything, seems a lost artifact from a distant age.
And by we I mean American women here now in 2016, voters from 18 to 98. Heck, count girls and babies; they inherit the new world being born and they can campaign, too. April brings Hillary Clinton as the presumptive Democratic presidential nominee. How sweet it is. A victory from sea to shining sea. Long time coming.
“I’m more afraid of, actually, Hillary Clinton’s war record and her hawkishness than I am of building a wall,” she said, after Colbert asked about her interview with Hayes.
Putin-ally and Russian lawmaker Alexei Pushkov has called ex-U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton “deluded” and tipped Donald Trump as the best choice for the U.S. presidency
Sanders’ top campaign aides said they would meet Wednesday to discuss their plans for the rest of the race—where they vowed to compete in all of the states including California. But they began to telegraph they’d be pleased if the Democratic Party embraced his core proposals such as making public universities tuition free and paying for that with a Wall St. trading tax.
Sanders had voted for a 2005 federal shield law that generally provides immunity to gun manufacturers against such lawsuits, claiming in a Michigan debate that gun companies and dealers would go out of business if they were sued for selling guns legally to people who might later use them for criminal acts.
If you’re following along, either to keep abreast of current events or for pure schadenfreude, we’ve compiled each state’s delegate math and most recent polling to help keep track.
“Let’s look at where we are right now … . I am winning,” Clinton told MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow and a crowd of about 200 people gathered for a town hall at the National Constitution Center.
Unlike the primaries, which are often closed to independent voters and tend to attract more ideologically prone voters, those most in play this fall are not the people railing against the establishment or demanding radical change.
Hillary Clinton’s ascendancy in the race for president has provided an opportunity for the rest of us women to step back and assess our standing in America.
The numbers at Washington Square were dwarfed by the battalions of working-class New Yorkers juggling two children and three jobs. These mostly Clinton voters were unable to attend any rally.
New York Republicans aren’t the only ones convinced by Donald Trump’s “America first” foreign policy — they’re just the only ones who can vote on it. Chinese state media has continued to support the racist businessman’s ascent to his party’s nomination.
For Clinton to be generating press reporting that’s less positive and even more negative than Trump’s is astonishing given the type of gong show campaign he’s been running.
Imagine if Hillary Clinton had flown to the Vatican and stationed herself at Pope Francis’s door for an ambush interview. She’d be caricatured as a power-mad shrew or worse.
In the vote totals reported from the precincts closest to Donald Trump’s and Hillary Clinton’s actual homes, an amusing wrinkle appeared.
