It wasn’t too long ago that the Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump was boasting he could make states that traditionally vote Democratic, like California and New York, competitive in the 2016 presidential election.

But take a moment away from pawing through the tens of thousands of her personal and professional emails now on public view and consider the long list of elected and appointed Republicans who have done exactly the same thing as Clinton—and worse.
According to a new aggregation of polls by The Huffington Post this week, the GOP will have a difficult time keeping its control of the Senate in the upcoming election cycle. HuffPost’s Senate model shows a 55 percent chance that Senate control will flip to Democrats.
It’s unclear whether Trump knows the accord was negotiated by the permanent five members of the United Nations Security Council—the United States, China, Russia, France, and the United Kingdom—plus Germany. His grasp of foreign policy seems tenuous, at best. It’s also unclear if he is aware of what the accord means to the U.S. economy.

The effort to keep firearms away from people on terrorism watch lists faced an uphill battle, with critics in both parties skeptical about its chances. “What am I going to tell the community of Orlando?” asked Democratic Senator Bill Nelson of Florida after the votes. “Sadly, what I’m going to tell them is the NRA won again.”
Today’s Republican establishment now finds that it is so out of touch with regular voters that it now faces a howling, Category-5 hurricane that’s threatening to implode the Grand Old Party.

WASHINGTON — The 2016 Republican National Convention is shaping up as a free-for-all where every delegate is a kingmaker, rules could change and no one will have an easy time figuring out what’s going on.
