Despite the drama of the 2016 campaign and Donald Trump's allegedly volatile impact, the battleground is emphatically not everywhere - and the states that matter are overwhelmingly familiar and predictable.

Nixon and Trump, Birds of a Feather

I remember the words of Nixon's chief Domestic Advisor, John Ehrlichman, at the Safford Penitentiary in Arizona. Asked about the man he had faithfully served in the White House for five years, Ehrlichman replied: "I really never got to know him." Who today can truthfully say they know the real Donald Trump?

Michael J. Parker | Posted 08.05.2016 | Politics
Michael J. Parker

Whatever you think of the current election, the Trump strategy is worth taking a look at, because it has been both Trump's key to success but also the source of his currently declining poll numbers. Trump has rewritten the rules, but also authored the guidebook on how to potentially defeat him.

People—from all points of view—may complain about social media, but no one questions its influence. Thus, it surely deserves the same degree of research, testing, and analysis that has been applied to more conventional forms of marketing communication.

What Will Bernie/Hillary Do?

Robert L. Borosage | Posted 06.15.2016 | Politics
Robert L. Borosage

Bernie Sanders had a "positive meeting" with Hillary Clinton Tuesday night. He announced he would address his supporters online on Thursday. The hand-wringing and rumor-mongering are pure melodrama. Sanders has already made it clear -- repeatedly -- what he will do. The real question is not what Bernie will do -- it is what Clinton will do.

In Response to the Tragedy in Orlando - America Should Launch a New War - Against Intolerance and Hate Speech

Robert Creamer | Posted 06.12.2016 | Politics
Robert Creamer

One thing is certain: intolerance and hatred inevitably lead to violence and death. Our primary response to the horrific massacre at the Pulse nightclub must be to rededicate ourselves to creating a culturally diverse society that is based on tolerance and respect for other religions, sexual orientations, races and life styles.

Branding Trump

The Clinton campaign tried Dangerous Donald, which fell flat, and has been floating the moniker Poor Donald. Both choices hold none of the power of Trump's insults. Dangerous evokes a titillating thrill - Carlos Danger before being unmasked - and Poor Donald rings of elitist condescension.
