    ATLANTA (AP) — From Mississippi retiring its state flag to local governments removing Confederate statues from public spaces, a bipartisan push across the South is chipping away at reminders of the Civil War and Jim Crow segregation. Now, during a national reckoning on racism, Democratic Party leaders want those symbolic changes to become part of a fundamental shift at the ballot box. Many Southern electorates are getting younger, less white and more urban, and thus less likely to embrace President...
    House Democrats stepped in to save 2020 Democratic nominee Joe Biden from an embarrassing explanation of his historical support for restricting Federal funding for abortions by pulling efforts to undo the Hyde Amendment from all 2020 spending bills according to a report in Politico Sunday. Joe Biden has been struggling to walk the line between his position on abortion while in Congress — a position that, at one time, amounted to a nearly “pro-life” platform — and the Democratic Party’s...
    Although recent polling shows Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden with a significant lead over President Donald Trump, Democrats reportedly can’t shake the “painful memories” of their 2016 loss. According to USA Today, Biden’s lead over Trump — which is currently more than Clinton ever held — is not enough to hide the possibility that the positive prospects will turn to a loss in November. “That memory can’t be erased,” said Luis Heredia, a member of the Democratic National Committee. “You...

And the Democrats dont care, the presidents son told host Jesse Watters during an appearance on Fox News Watters World. And the media wants to ignore it.

    Perhaps, it can be not astonishing then that when one get together puts out a good deal more inside polls than ordinary, it is superior for their aspect. Functions are likely to release very good polling when they have it. Considering the fact that 2004, there has been a close to ideal correlation (+.96 on a scale from -1 to +1) amongst the share of partisan polls released by the Democrats and the November effects.Proper now, Democrats and liberal teams...
    Democratic members of the House Armed Services Committee teamed up with Republicans this week to pass an amendment co-sponsored by Wyoming Republican Rep. Liz Cheney—daughter of notorious “war on terror” architect Dick Cheney—that prohibits Congress from spending money to pull U.S. troops out of Afghanistan without first meeting a series of vague conditions that critics said appear designed to prevent withdrawal. The amendment (pdf)—co-sponsored by freshman Rep. Jason Crow (D-Colo.)—states that before the number of U.S. troops stationed in Afghanistan...
    (CNN)Whenever I hear an operative complain about public polling, I have just one thing to say: Put up or shut up. Release your own numbers that show the race in a different place than the public polling, or let the public polling stand. This is especially true in House races, where public polling is limited and theres a real chance to shape the conventional wisdom. Perhaps, its not surprising then that when one party puts out a lot more internal...
    During the Fox News Channel’s coverage of President Trump’s speech at Mount Rushmore on Friday, House Freedom Caucus Chair Andy Biggs (R-AZ) stated that the Democratic Party is most exposed on the “problem of hypocrisy that they have.” Biggs specifically argued that Democrats are engaging in a double standard by criticizing President Trump for speaking at Mount Rushmore when multiple Democrats have visited the site in the past without any objections. Biggs said, [relevant remarks begin around 5:45] “That’s the...

    President Donald Trump described ongoing drives to destroy historical statues and monuments as part of a broader campaign to “far-left fascism” that seeks to “overthrow the American Revolution,” making his comments during his Salute America address on Friday evening at Mount Rushmore in South Dakota. Trump said, “There is a new far-left fascism that demands absolute allegiance. If you do not speak its language, perform its rituals, recite its mantras, and follow its commandments, then you will be censored, banished, blacklisted,...
    New York Democrat Mondaire Jones is poised to become one of the first openly gay black members of Congress, and hes also been candid about his support for packing the Supreme Court with liberal justices. Our democracy is under assault, and the Supreme Court has dealt many of the sharpest blows.

    According to a Friday report from The Hill, Democrats believe that the party’s presumptive presidential nominee Joe Biden could turn the state of Georgia blue in November. In 2016, President Donald Trump won Georgia by around five points, receiving 200,000 more votes than former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton. The president’s campaign is reportedly spending money to defend the state, but Biden’s team apparently sees the race as competitive and plans on investing funds as well. According to data from...
    A new poll indicates that more than seven out of ten Democrat voters want former Vice President Joe Biden to pick a woman of color as his running mate. The poll, which was conducted by USA Today and Suffolk University by surveying 1,000 individuals nationwide, indicates that 72 percent of Democrats believe it is very or somewhat important for Biden to place a woman of color on the ticket. Support for a woman of color as the Democrat vice-presidential nominee was...
    As Republicans are leading the effort to heal our nation from months of economic and cultural turbulence, Democrats have seized the moment differently. Rather than working to unify our nation, the political left is choosing to further divide us. The Democratic Association of Secretaries of State stooped to a new low, launching a new advertisement conflating election integrity laws with racism and “white supremacy.” Democrats use celebrity liberal activists like Hillary Clinton and LeBron James, who recklessly compare today’s challenges with outdated policies. In stark...
    Joe Biden and the Democrat Party have assembled an army of election lawyers and volunteers to fight off any attempts at election “chicanery” this November, ahead of what is expected to be a close contest. The former vice president, who last month floated the idea that Trump would try to “steal” the election, told donors during a video conference on Thursday his campaign was not taking any risks, especially as they expected a large portion of the contest to be conducted...
    There were nearly 2.4 million firearms sold in June, according to the Small Arms Analytics and Forecasting. Yours truly made three of those purchases. Oh, and ammo… Before I’m done, I’ll have a throne made from ammo boxes, right next to my throne of toilet paper. So why would a guy who already owned three firearms go out and purchase three more? First off, let me be clear: I don’t want to harm anyone. Nothing would make me happier than...
    It can be a vote he regrets, he explained, and a slip-up he hopes to appropriate in November. “He blew it,” Dudley said, not mincing phrases as he assessed Trump’s first expression. “We ended up so enthusiastic in the starting. A businessman to operate our state like a business and it hasn’t took place.” The searing sentiment of Dudley, 77, illustrates one particular of the soaring concerns inside of the Trump marketing campaign: getting rid of the senior vote,...
    Just a few months ago, governors seemed to be a declining force in American politics. Governorships were once a feeder for the presidency – thats how Jimmy Carter, Ronald Reagan, Bill Clinton and George W. Bush got to the White House – but the governors and former governors who ran for the Democratic presidential nomination in 2020 faded early in the contest.[ READ: Joe Biden Gains Ground Over Trump in Electoral College Outlook ]However, with the emergence of the coronavirus, all of...

    Are you better off now than you were four years ago? For Republicans, the answer is decidedly “No.”  Consider this startling stat: Dave Wasserman, House editor for the Cook Political Report, recently noted that “when President Trump took office in January 2017, there were 241 Republicans in the House. Since then, 115 (48 percent) have either retired, resigned, been defeated, or are retiring in 2020.” A handful of those 115 were Republicans losing primaries to more Trumpy candidates (like what...
    In the past month, during which two U.S. jobs reports have shown signs of an economic rebound from the depths of coronavirus-related ruin, President Donald Trump has focused largely on what often matters most to him: not getting public credit. According to three people who’ve independently spoken to the president, Trump makes a point of regularly complaining that the media has not given him the kudos he deserves for “leading” what he deems to be a smashing economic recovery. He’s...
