Former Vice President Joe Biden still leads all contenders with 26 percent support. Warren also polls ahead of Sanders in Nevada, where Democrats will caucus next February after the Iowa caucuses and New Hampshire primary. Biden leads the first Monmouth poll of likely Democratic caucusgoers in Nevada with 36 percent support, followed by

National polls are worthless. Dems love national polls! State polls tell the true story. 2016 polls proved polls are obsolete . Not one poll was correct. Cellphones & caller ID changed the polling industry.

Do we really need to share these space-displacing wastes of time? A weather report from three years ago , today, would be more beneficial.

Washington - A House panel will hold a hearing next week on the topic of reparations for slavery. The House Judiciary Committee's subcommittee on the Constitution, Civil Rights, and Civil Liberties is set to hold a hearing June 19 on legislation that would establish a commission to study the consequences and impacts of slavery and make recommendations for reparations proposals. The hearing is titled "H.R. 40 and the Path to Restorative Justice."

WASHINGTON – As some Democratic presidential candidates are pushing back on blistering criticism from President Donald Trump that their party has become "socialist," Sen. Bernie Sanders on Wednesday doubled down on his embrace of the label. Touting his "democratic socialism" approach to politics as the best way to address income inequality, the U.S. senator from Vermont sought to rebrand the controversial term during a high-profile address – even as some within his party worry that a leftward lurch could hurt Democrats in states like Ohio, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin next year. "Over 80 years ago, Franklin Delano Roosevelt helped create a government that

DAVENPORT, Iowa — During a campaign swing through Iowa this week, Joe Biden mentioned that his family recently dined with former President Barack Obama's family. At a Houston fundraiser, Biden joked about the infamous expletive he deployed in congratulating Obama's health care victory. And Biden recently tweeted an image of Joe and Barack friendship bracelets. The message is clear: Biden really wants you to know he's still friends with Obama. He's betting that by dangling nostalgia for the Obama years before Democrats, he can help rebuild the diverse national coalition that twice propelled Obama to victory. Obama hasn't backed any of

EL PASO, Texas – The photos showed migrant families fenced in under an international bridge, huddled against the cold, their children shawled in Mylar blankets. The images, which captured national attention in March, sparked criticism about the treatment of those seeking refuge and asylum in the country. Federal officials issued statements saying they would transfer the families to a "location with more space and shelter capability." Three months later, a makeshift detention camp still occupies a parking lot at the foot of the northbound Paso del Norte international bridge in downtown El Paso. Mylar blankets were tied to a fence last week

MINNEAPOLIS — Minnesota campaign finance officials said last week that U.S. Rep. Ilhan Omar misused campaign funds in violation of state rules. They also revealed that she had filed joint tax returns with her husband years before they were legally married and at a time when she was married to another man. The revelation put the freshman representative under more scrutiny from critics who have taken issue with her marital past. One tax expert said that if there is no criminal intent and the issue has been corrected, she's unlikely to face any criminal consequences. Some questions and answers about the

PROVIDENCE, R.I. — Democratic presidential candidate Pete Buttigieg knows firsthand the burden of six-figure student loan debt. He and his husband, Chasten, are far from alone, though, and their personal college indebtedness is helping to keep the issue on the national stage. With loans totaling more than $130,000, they are among the 43 million people in the United States who owe federal student loan debt. The debtors are so numerous and the total debt so high — more than $1.447 trillion, according to federal statistics — that several of the Democratic candidates have made major policy proposals to address the crisis. Their ideas

Following a string of high-profile cases of American tourists getting sick, dying, and being assaulted, another American tourist has died in the Dominican Republic. The increase in the number of mysterious deaths and sudden illnesses at resorts in the Dominican Republic has drawn an unsettling amount of attention to the nation. The events, which have been widely reported, prompted government officials in the Dominican Republic as well as U.S. ambassadors to reassure travelers that the country is still safe. However, another death has just been reported. In the most recent incident, a man named Robert Wallace was vacationing in the

CEDAR RAPIDS, Iowa — When he first launched his presidential bid in April, Joe Biden promised he’d visit Iowa so often the state would be sick of him. They’re still waiting. After making just four appearances during a two-day swing here in late April, Biden has been AWOL from a key early state that’s accustomed to seeing presidential candidates in the flesh. He’ll be returning to Iowa Tuesday and Wednesday — and recently announced plans to add 50 paid staffers in the state by the end of the month — but Democratic officials say Biden has already fallen behind in

The jury just rendered its verdict on punitive damages in the Gibson’s Bakery v. Oberlin College case. Daniel McGraw, our reporter in the courtroom, reports that in addition to the $11.2 million compensatory damages awarded last Friday, the jury awarded a total of $22 million. That brings the total damages to $33 million. We will have the breakdown soon. The jury also awarded attorney’s fees, to be determined by the judge. In closing argument, Gibson’s lawyer Lee Plakas argued: “Why is the country watching you. Because the country agrees that what happened to the Gibsons should not happen to anyone, but could happen to everyone.”

Democrat presidential candidate Sen.

(Video) "But as you know, the taxes in many of those countries are much higher than they are in individual and personal tax are much higher than they are in the United States," CNN's Anderson Cooper said."Yeah, but I suspect that a lot of people in the country would be delighted to pay more in taxes if they had comprehensive health care as a human right," Sanders responded.

President Donald Trump may not alert the FBI if foreign governments offered damaging information against his 2020 rivals during the upcoming presidential race, he said, despite the deluge of investigations stemming from his campaign's interactions with Russians during the 2016 campaign. Asked by ABC News Chief Anchor George Stephanopoulos in the Oval Office on Wednesday whether his campaign would accept such information from foreigners -- such as China or Russia -- or hand it over the FBI, Trump said, "I think maybe you do both." "I think you might want to listen, there isn't anything wrong with listening," Trump continued. "If somebody called from a country,

"And whether that comes to be, I don't know. It would have to be a bipartisan initiative."In this case, Congress could allow itself a COLA (Cost of Living Adjustment) that would raise lawmakers' pay by $4,500 to $178,500, up from the current $174,000.

Let your freak flag fly, New York! New York is coming out in a larger-than-life way this Pride Month, unveiling the biggest pride flag in the city’s history on Friday. But it won’t be a traditional cloth flag. Instead, the normally gray, concrete steps at Roosevelt Island’s Four Freedoms Park will be painted to resemble the iconic rainbow symbol for the gay rights movement. The fitting hashtag: #AscendWithPride. The location of the massive 12-foot-by-100-foot display of equality is no coincidence either. Four Freedoms State Park was established as a memorial to Franklin D. Roosevelt

Yesterday at the Women’s World Cup, the U.S. defeated Thailand 13-0. The lopsidedness of the result is further proof that the tournament is a second rate sporting event. Soccer is the world’s game, but women’s soccer is not. Not many countries take women’s soccer seriously and, with the possible exception of the U.S., those that do don’t take it nearly as seriously as they take men’s soccer. Hence, mismatches like the U.S.-Thailand farce. There just aren’t enough competent women’s teams in some continents to make up a strong world cup field. At the real World Cup, a mismatch like yesterday’s is nearly impossible. If the best men’s team from Europe

So far the media has managed to avert its eyes and studiously ignore a major story of corruption and malfeasance in Congress because to cover said story would totally destroy a narrative and expose them to allegations that they are racist. At the epicenter of this tale is the pustulent and rather dim Elijah Cummings from my current state of residence. Cummings is your typical product of the Maryland Democrat machine. The reek of corruption is always near him but never quite attaches to him because he is, as I said, the product of the Maryland Democrat machine and therefore bulletproof. Now all of that may be getting ready to change.
