Political pundits are talking up a storm offering "20/20 hindsight" reasons why Trump won. Pollsters are stunned that they got it wrong. While I am saddened by the result, I am not surprised by it.
In an appearance on KNUS 710-AM's Kelley and Kafer Oct. 11, Colorado Treasurer Walker Stapleton chose not to disavow Republican presidential candidate...
Here's the thing I can't believe you don't realize: I don't really care about you! Honestly, I don't! Do you see how I live?! A gold-covered mansion in the sky...private jumbo jets...helicopters. Do you ever think that, maybe, just maybe, I'm trying to limit my contact with you "little people" as much as humanly possible?
A sure sign that a campaign is failing is when the candidate blames the press for his problems. The latest example is Republican presidential nomine...
Right now it looks like things will not go well for the Trump campaign. The list of Republicans repudiating their candidate is literally unprecedented, and still growing.
As the New York Times so eloquently described this weekend, GOP nominee Donald Trump has few options and quite a narrow path to 270 electoral college votes this coming November.
The dark and treacherous skies Donald Trump invoked at the Republican National Convention last week have lifted as Democrats begin their meeting in Philly today with a healthy dose of optimism.
At the end of the January, Right to Rise had spent $80.2 million in independent expenditures, with little to show for it. Since the group had raised $121 million, it had another $41 million with which it could try to boost the candidate.
So when political science Professor Kenneth Janda asked if he could write a column making a more academic comparison (instead of just hurling insults), I thought it'd be a great idea.
We are halfway through the 2016 national elections and the onslaught of political money from billionaires and multimillionaires will continue and increase. This is not the way our democracy is meant to work or the way our country is meant to be governed.
If the Democrats decide to run Joe Biden, it will be like a breath of fresh air in a very toxic campaign. They'll have a united party, Trump will be defeated and the world and we will be a much better place. I'm in with Biden.
Based on simplistic polls that rank "the environment" as a low order of voter concern, most pundits overlook the complex tangle of taxpayer v. special interests, regulatory capture, and water pollution that is profoundly irritating the political status quo in the United States. Take Florida, one of the key electoral states, for example.
Why "Broke Donald"? Because his refusal to release his tax returns raises major suspicion that he's either insolvent and/or involved in business transactions or investments that portray him in a negative light. Is there another explanation for why he refuses to hand them over until at least after the election, if at all?
This is not a dream. Donald Trump actually is going to be the Republican Party nominee. After all the hateful rhetoric, the childish taunts, the abject self-aggrandizement, the New York billionaire won the nomination far earlier than anyone expected, and the Republican establishment was powerless to stop him.
Dear Jeb: I'm a Democrat. I dislike your policies. They hurt the country, and bring misery to the lives of regular Americans. However, I do feel your pain. Because Democrats are compassionate. Not from of any religious dictate, but from basic human decency. So, I know what you're going through.
For several years now there has been a fight within the Republican Party, pitting establishment Republicans against movement conservatives.
