Hillary Clinton holds not only a commanding 19-point lead over Donald Trump in Illinois according to a new poll, but also she has grabbed a solid lead...
The first debate not a knockdown but a wipeout, Bob Shrum & Ron Christie agree. On tax returns, birther-ism. interruptions & Machado, says Shrum, "Hillary killed him and Trump committed suicide." Can Trump now prepare better and stop obsessing about the weight of a beauty queen? Fat chance.
Donald Trump and Mitt Romney may not have much in common, and the 2012 GOP presidential nominee has made no bones about his visceral dislike of the pugilistic businessman who is carrying his party's banner this time around.
Were a candidate to, hypothetically, deviate from the code of honor, infrared light beam communicators would also do the trick.

History is about to be made at Hofstra University, and excitement is building to a crescendo among the school's nearly 11,000 students. On Monday evening, Democrat Hillary Clinton will face Republican Donald Trump in a presidential debate that will likely be the most-watched television program in U.S. history.

Hillary Clinton made a deplorable basket case this weekend. That is, she made the case that "half" of the supporters of Donald Trump belong in a "basket of deplorables." It just sounds funnier to say it the first way, that's all.
We all suffer from this curse of unequal bias as we witness false equivalency bleeding from national politics back into daily life.
The question of what a wealthy, older and egotistical man chooses to do after losing an election, potentially in a very humiliating manner is not, on its own, a particularly interesting one.
Republicans have now, by my count, missed two rather large opportunities to improve their general standing with Latino voters. Donald Trump's speech Wednesday (unless it is further postponed or even cancelled outright, of course) might just become the third big missed opportunity.
There was absolutely no in-person voter fraud in the state. None. But that doesn't matter because when Republicans like Trump cheat, they think everyone else cheats too.
Donald Trump has a major problem with African American voters. The latest national polls show him with just 1 percent support among blacks. That's virtually zero.
However much some prominent Republicans are outraged by Trump, he is the third GOP nominee of the last four to sell himself to the party and the nation as a businessman.
