Based on what we’ve seen in recent years, it’s probably safe to say conservative students are unwelcome on many college campuses but it’s worth noting documentations of this perceived bias.

A new survey about student life at Yale confirms what we already knew.

Is Donald Trump the Republican nominee?

Not *technically,* but it is much, much more likely than a day ago. There is an ever so slight possibility that Trump could be denied 1237 delegates going into the convention. I hope Cruz fights on. [Update – not to be, Cruz suspends campaign.]
