Democratic Party


According to a new Gallup poll, Hillary Clinton is still incredibly unpopular. Via Fox News: It’s been more than seven months since Election Day, but Americans’ opinions of Hillary Clinton remain the same. A new Gallup poll finds just 41 percent of Americans have a favorable view of the former presidential candidate, with 57 percent expressing an unfavorable view. […]


Last night, Republican Karen Handel defeated her Democratic opponent Jon Ossoff by nearly four points in the special election runoff for Georgia’s 6th district. Twitter was awash with arguments about the importance or lack of importance of these results. Republicans were touting the fact that Handel had won in what many in the mainstream media had […]


After a primary on Tuesday that defied expectations, Virginia has its candidates for Governor, Lieutenant Governor, and Attorney General in 2017. Virginia is one of two states that holds elections every year (the other is New Jersey), and this year will have important consequences. As we detailed in March, political analysts will be watching Virginia very closely […]


While it is probably safe to say that abhorrence for President Trump is a universal feeling among Democratic members of Congress, calls for impeachment are not — at least, as of yet. Yesterday morning, at a weekly meeting of House Democrats, members butted heads over the issue. Rep. Brad Sherman (D-Calif.), who distributed draft articles of […]


Politics is never boring in Virginia — a battleground state which is one of just two states that has elections every year — and last night’s primaries were no exception. (For some background on the races, read our preview from March.) Ed Gillespie narrowly defeated Corey Stewart to secure the Republican nomination for governor. Gillespie, […]


Gallup released the results of a new poll conducted from May 3-7 which surveyed American’s views on abortion. Here are five key takeaways. 1.) Believing abortion should be allowed under any circumstance is a very unpopular position to hold. Only 29 percent of those surveyed believe abortion should be legal in all circumstances. 2.) Nearly […]


I normally skip the ads that play before online videos, but this one caught my attention. It was a clip of Bill Clinton giving a State of the Union address while he was president — and making an incredibly concise and eloquent case against illegal immigration. Based on the rhetoric, one would think one was […]


Last week, Hillary Clinton infuriated leaders from her own party when she blamed the Democratic National Committee (DNC) for her loss to President Trump. Now, they are telling her she needs to step out of the spotlight. Before Trump was even inaugurated, Clinton began her blame game, which has now lasted over half a year […]


The Democrats think they are ready for 2020. They say they are new (!), improved (!), and ready to rumble! And their new, fresh candidate is… Joe Biden? From The New York Times: Former Vice President Joseph R. Biden Jr. is planning to create a political action committee, the most concrete sign yet that he intends […]


In the Democratic primary for governor of Virginia, it’s a race to the bottom as a pair of candidates try to prove who is more radical in his support for abortion. The two hopefuls, incumbent Lieutenant Governor Ralph Northam and one-term former Congressman Tom Perriello, are attacking each other for not supporting abortion enough. Perriello, […]


Today the Keystone Report, a popular “Drudge-style” blog focused on Pennsylvania politics, published a new poll commissioned by American Principles Project suggesting that Gov. Tom Wolf (D-Pa.) will likely struggle to win re-election in 2018. Less than 35 percent of Pennsylvania voters approve of Gov. Tom Wolf’s job performance, while 43 percent disapprove. A majority of Democrats said they were less likely to support Wolf […]


The Democratic National Committee has just made another move to the left on abortion. Newly-elected DNC Chairman Tom Perez, who recently said that Democratic support for abortion is non-negotiable, has appointed pro-abortion activist Jess O’Connell as its CEO. O’Connell is the executive director of EMILY’s List, a political action committee which raises money specifically for […]


Since the night he shocked the world by defeating Hillary Clinton, left-wing activists have fantasized about impeaching Donald Trump. This obsession has driven many of these otherwise lucid individuals to lunacy as they desperately peddle baseless conspiracy theories about Russia hacking the election in order to justify their fervent partisan desire to destroy Trump. Looking […]


This is Senator Joe Manchin (D-W.Va.). According to Axios, the pro-Planned Parenthood picture on the right was taken less than a month ago. The anti-Planned Parenthood picture on the left? That was taken last week. Manchin is a Democratic politician in a deep red state trying to, as Axios delicately puts it, “walk a tightrope” on abortion […]


Planned Parenthood has found itself back in the spotlight in recent weeks, as Congress debates a healthcare bill which would cut off nearly $500 million of its taxpayer funding. This, of course, is not sitting well among its many defenders, who argue taking such a step would rob women of vital healthcare. Planned Parenthood President […]


The American political system is in a state of flux. Both Republicans and Democrats are experiencing mirror-image identity crises as they struggle to define anew who their parties are and what they represent. The late former Pennsylvania Gov. Bob Casey, a Democrat, often said that a national candidate who was both pro-life and clearly fighting […]


This article was posted originally at Townhall.com. Congress is preparing to pass an Omnibus spending bill that will fund the government through the rest of fiscal year 2017. Democrats love the bill because it fully funds Planned Parenthood and specifically omits many of President Trump’s legislative priorities, such as funding for his proposed border wall with […]


Last week, DNC Chairman Tom Perez made headlines for a statement suggesting pro-life Democrats ought to be ousted from the party, so that Democrats could maintain a single message. Some responded with outrage, like former pro-life Democratic Congressman Bart Stupak, who said that the chairman should “take a hike” and that he “has no business […]


Today House Democrats reintroduced the so-called “Equality Act,” a bill written by the radical LGBT lobby which would restrict religious freedom and the freedom of association in favor of creating special privileges for certain people based on subjective classifications, such as sexual orientation and gender identity. You can read a summary of the Equality Act […]


New voter research from Priorities USA, a pro-Democrat super PAC, shows that among voters who switched from Barack Obama in 2012 to Donald Trump in 2016, and who were primarily responsible for delivering Trump a decisive electoral victory, many are struggling financially. The research also shows that a plurality (42 percent) view Democratic policies as […]
