The Tampa Bay Times reports:

In a combative interview this morning, Democratic Senate candidate and current U.S. Rep. Alan Grayson accused MSNBC host Joy Reid of “smearing”...

Disgraced communist and former Obama “Green Jobs Czar,” Van “Cash for Clunkers” Jones, hasn’t been resting on his laurels since his abrupt 2009 middle-of-the-night departure from the Obama administration. He was busy serving at the front of the progressive campaign to diminish and demonize the Tea Party into obscurity, and he has...

How bad and lacking in moral fiber must a Democrat be for Harry Reid to accuse him of having “no moral compass?”  Alan Grayson bad.

Elizabeth Warren Video - Lashes out at reporters over Native American Controversy

Elizabeth Warren’s claim to be Native American is an issue that just won’t go away.

It dogged her during the 2012 Senate run, but she was able to deflect the issue through the help of supportive media and reliance on supposed “family lore,” Some of that “lore” was downright laughable, like...

Here’s an excerpt:

In the history of polling, we’ve basically never had a candidate viewed negatively by half of the electorate. This year, we have two....

I love my husband, but he is one of the “doom-and-gloomers” who insists Hillary Clinton will win in November, and in a landslide if the GOP candidate is Donald Trump.

Thanks in large part to the Emory University students who pathetically panicked after seeing pro-Trump messages written in chalk on campus sidewalks, pro-Trump messages are now appearing on other college campuses.

The whole thing is going viral on Twitter under the hashtag #TheChalkening.

I cannot recall a campaign season even remotely like this one, where the majority of American voters dislike both frontrunners.  This was hinted at following the Florida primary and is confirmed by a recent CBS News/New York Times poll:

The Republican candidates made a lot of pledges to the record-breaking pro-Israel crowd at last week’s American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC) policy conference in Washington, D.C.

Among them was the promise that they’ll move the U.S. Embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem.

To all the Trump supporters out there, and to The Donald, don’t get your hopes up about Trump defeating Hillary in New York State in a general election.

It’s delusion. Trump does have a strong base of support in Upstate NY, the vast area north and west of New York City.

2016 turnout

One of the best things Republicans have going for them in 2016 is voter enthusiasm. So far in the primary process, voter turnout greatly favors the GOP over Democrats.
