Polling shows that Latino voters vote on issues, not on personalities. Polling also shows that Latinos are paying close attention to the immigration issue, and that they consider immigration reform -- and executive action by the president on immigration -- to be extremely important and urgently needed.
In the end, will a more pragmatic Rand Paul build a coalition that can win a national election? Will his core constituents tolerate a more mainstream Rand? Will they become "bland for Rand"?
Seeking to interpret a single primary election as a harbinger of future national political trends is something of a mug's game. Nonetheless, it is dif...
The real purpose of an individual-candidate Super PAC is to circumvent candidate contribution limits. Wealthy donors, corporations and other contributors use these Super PACs as vehicles to make unlimited contributions to directly support the candidate backed by the Super PAC.
It would be the "We told you so" election: Mitt Romney versus Hillary Clinton in 2016. The campaign would look like an effort to roll back the calendar and say, "Let's get it right this time."
Nearly a month ago, a poll showed that New Hampshire GOP voters gave Romney the nod in picking who they wanted to win in 2016. So what did Iowans think?
It's not quite 1914, but troops are on the move again around the world. Find out what's happening by taking the Week to Week news quiz. Here are som...
We tried waiting and hoping for real change six years ago. Today, income inequality grows steadily worse, while economic opportunity is out of reach for most. This Labor Day I will look forward to a warm summer day, but I'm also dreaming of the movement we can build.
In a move that many interpret as an attempt to further distance herself from President Obama, former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton has written a new book in which she reveals that she has never actually met the President.
It is very possible that as Schweitzer goes, so goes Montana, and as Montana goes, so goes the nation in the U.S. Senate.
Pundits have tried to hype a third Mitt Romney candidacy, but evidence from nationwide polls show he's not even close to leading the Republican candidates for the 2016 Presidential contest.
Thomas Friedman and Jeffrey Goldberg, two well-respected and widely read foreign policy journalists, struck a goldmine over the weekend when the two veterans landed exclusive, one-on-one interviews with America's two most famous politicians.
As the 2016 presidential election approaches, I feel uninspired by the Republican candidates who appear most likely to be pursuing the nation's highest office. With Democrats having at least one candidate who will likely be able to unite their base, I fear that Republicans may once again be without a visionary leader.
My guess is that by the time everyone votes in November, the Republican anti-Obamacare strategy is hardly going to cause a ripple, while the debate over immigration reform is going to be the main event.
I don't think an easy win for Hillary is automatically a good thing, even for her. But I also don't think it is that likely. If you look at the history of presidential politics in the modern era, the last half-century-plus, the strongly favored frontrunner almost never cruises easily to victory.
The historic participation of blacks and other minorities helped elect the first black president of the United States. But while we greatly exercised our right to vote in 2008, many failed to do the same two years later during the 2010 midterms. What we got were a slew of politicians who are more concerned with their own self-aggrandizement than with serving people.
