Donald Trump’s quest for the Oval Office certainly has been fascinating.

This weekend, protesters in Arizona and their anti-Trump road blockage made for breathless press coverage. I suspect the organizers of that inanity are going to be shocked when they learn that it helped Trump win more votes and gave the business...

Given the atmosphere of deep political division that has widened and deepened during Obama’s presidency and the clear dissatisfaction among Republican primary voters, Gallup’s latest poll on party identification makes sense.

According to Gallup, the percentage of people who identify with either the Democrat or Republican party is “nearing historic” lows.
