America Rising Squared has come out with what looks like the first general election ad targeting Democrats.

What the ad shows is that regardless of whether Bernie Sanders or Hillary Clinton is the Democrat nominee, Bernie’s Socialism will matter because Hillary has been forced to run left.

Will Democratic Socialism play well nationally...

Logically, Donald Trump should be the worst candidate against the Hillary machine.

He has a colorful history that would be an oppo-researcher’s dream.  Like taking candy from a baby.

And his negatives are in the stratosphere. Gallup just released a survey showing that Trump’s negatives not only are high, they are of a...

With Hillary’s cratering poll numbers, the far left “feeling the Bern,” and the right tearing itself apart over Trump and the other candidates, former New York City mayor Michael Bloomberg reportedly sees an opening and is seriously considering an independent run for president.

If you enjoy imagining nightmare scenarios for Democrats, you’ll love this.

Hillary Clinton has a big problem. As a candidate, she wants to be seen as an advocate for women but her husband’s past and her defense of it conflicts with that message. She simply can’t have it both ways.

To make matters worse, some of Bill Clinton’s accusers are starting to...

It’s been a great year and a half for me here at Legal Insurrection—but it’s time to say goodbye. I’ve accepted a position in a law firm, which means its back to the real world, and away from the wonderfully bizarre world of full-time conservative journalism.

If current fundraising totals are any indication of the 2016 election, and they should be, the Republicans are in much better shape than the Democrats. The Republican National Committee is flush with cash, while the Democratic National Committee is mired in debt.

Obama likes to mock the opposition:

“Have you noticed that everyone of these candidates say, ‘Obama’s weak. Putin’s kicking sand in his face. When I talk to Putin, he’s going to straighten out,'” Obama said, impersonating a refrain among Republican candidates that he’s allowed Russian President Vladimir Putin too much leeway.

Democrats are are gleeful over Hillary Clinton’s performance at the Benghazi hearing on Friday. Her fundraising is up, she’s received a big labor union endorsement and two of her Democratic rivals have dropped out of the race.
