With the 2020 election exactly four weeks away, former Vice President Joe Biden is leading President Trump in every national poll, opening up a significant advantage in surveys taken since the first presidential debate. CNN poll results released Tuesday showed Biden with a 16-point lead over Trump (57 percent to 41 percent) among likely voters. The survey — which was conducted entirely after the first debate and mostly after the president's coronavirus diagnosis was made public — found respondents favored Biden over Trump on a number of key issues, including the coronavirus outbreak (59 percent for Biden compared with 38 percent for Trump), health care (59 percent to 39 percent) and racial i...
Sen. Susan Collins (R-Maine) just had one of her best external polls in a while, as she finds herself mired in a tight re-election race against her Democratic challenger, Maine's House Speaker Sarah Gideon. The poll, conducted by the Portland, Maine-based Digital Research Insights for The Bangor Daily News, found Collins trailing Gideon by just one point, a boost following a series of polls in which Gideon led by several points.
The chairman of an Arkansas county Republican committee died from complications associated with COVID-19 on Tuesday—less than one month after his organization hosted a maskless gathering with other elected leaders. Steven Farmer, who served as the chairman of the Craighead County Republican Committee, died on Tuesday after a weeks-long battle with the coronavirus that resulted in a stay at the ICU and a ventilator, his daughter and the organization announced. The news comes just three weeks after his committee hosted an event with Sen. Tom Cotton (R-AR) and Rep. Louis Gohmert (R-TX), who contracted COVID-19 in July, for Reagan Day.
President Trump on Tuesday accused Joe Biden of wanting to make it legal to kill newborn babies, a gross distortion of the Democratic nominee's vow to make the principles of Roe v. Wade the “law of the land.” “Biden and Democrats just clarified the fact that they are fully in favor of (very) LATE TERM ABORTION, right up until the time of birth, and beyond — which would be execution,” Trump tweeted.
Philippine President Rodrigo Duterte said that like his fierce critics, he has also suspected that extrajudicial killings may have happened under his drug crackdown that has killed thousands of people. He said in televised remarks Monday night he had once inquired into the brutal deaths and was told some drug dealers may have been killed due to rivalry among syndicates or for stealing drug money. More than 5,800 suspects have been killed and 256,000 arrested since Duterte took office in mid-2016.
Turkish President Tayyip Erdogan upbraided French counterpart Emmanuel Macron on Tuesday over his comments last week pledging to fight "Islamist separatism", saying the remarks were "a clear provocation" and showed the French leader's "impertinence". Macron had said "Islamist separatism" was threatening to take control in some Muslim communities in France and a bill on the issue would be sent to parliament with steps restricting home-schooling and encouraging teaching of Arabic. "The 'Islam is in crisis' statement made by Macron in a city where Muslims are in the majority is beyond disrespectful, it is a clear provocation," Erdogan told an event celebrating mosques and religious personnel in Ankara.
Vice President Mike Pence and Democratic vice presidential nominee Kamala Harris will face off for the first time through plexiglass barriers at the debate on Wednesday, but health experts say that they won't be enough to stop aerosol transmission of COVID-19. The Commission on Presidential Debates approved on Monday the use of a plexiglas barrier between the two candidates, sources told Politico. During the Oct. 4 U.S. Senate debate between South Carolina's Republican incumbent Lindsay Graham and his Democratic challenger Jamie Harrison, Harrison “had a large transparent partition installed next to his lectern,” The State reported.
Former first lady Michelle Obama is urging Americans to vote for Joe Biden in a 24-minute video that casts the election in existential terms. Think about what would possibly compel you to accept this level of chaos, violence and confusion under this president and be willing to watch our country continue to spiral out of control. Because we can no longer pretend that we don't know exactly who and what this president stands for,” Obama says in the video, which was posted by the Biden campaign Tuesday morning.
A US court has ordered Iran to pay $1.45 billion to the family of a former FBI agent who is believed to have been detained by the Iranian government while on a secret CIA mission to an Iranian island. Robert Levinson, who disappeared aged 58 on Kish island in March 2007, is believed by his family and the US government to have died in Iranian custody aged 71 or 72 after becoming the longest-held hostage in US history. US District Judge Timothy Kelly signed an order last Thursday awarding his family $107 million in compensation and punitive damages of $1.3 billion.
A group of drug dealers intent on recovering 50 kilograms of cocaine kidnapped an associate's grandparents from their home in northern New York, ferried them across the Canadian border through a tribal reservation, and held them hostage for two nights until police staged a rescue, U.S. authorities said. Four men from Quebec and one from Plattsburgh, New York, face charges of kidnapping, forcible confinement and extortion for the abduction of James and Sandra Helm of Moira, a town of 3,000 residents about 15 miles (24 kilometers) from the Canadian border, officials said. In the criminal complaint against Graigory Brown, 50, of Plattsburgh, an FBI agent describes a harrowing series of events aimed at recovering a drug cache that, it turns out, had already been seized by the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration.
The joint rule from the U.S. Department of Labor and Department of Homeland Security will significantly increase the minimum wages companies must pay to workers enrolled in the H-1B visa program. The rule, which takes effect in early December, will likely face criticism from trade groups such as the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, who say the H-1B program is necessary because of a shortage of skilled American workers. Kenneth Cuccinelli, acting director of Homeland Security, said in a call with reporters on Wednesday that the new rule was largely designed to deny visas to third-party contractors who provide workers to U.S. companies.
By partnering with YouGov to track the views of 13 key demographic groups (including suburban voters, Latino voters and white seniors) across nine important metrics (including vote intention, Trump approval and direction of the country), Yahoo News has identified a significant shift away from Trump over the last week — a period in which the president delivered a poorly received debate performance and was hospitalized with COVID-19. Consider the following chart, which compares the results of the Sept.
Thursday was a sad day for a few reasons, but mainly because it was the day that Ford announced its intent to end production of the best cars it currently makes, the Mustang Shelby GT350 and GT350R. Sadder still is the fact that this likely marks the end of an era — one where Ford gave a mindless dedication to the GT350's particular breed of loud, ridiculous, manual-transmission V8 sports cars. Chicken soup for the enthusiast soul, all dried up and flaking from the bowl. First reported by Car and Driver last week, Ford confirmed the news of the GT350's death to Business Insider in an email.
Authorities in Mexico said Tuesday that 13 bodies were found stuffed into two SUVs in northern Mexico, while a shooting attack on a funeral in another state killed five and wounded four. The violence appears to be part of bloody turf battles involving the Jalisco cartel that has left dozens dead in recent weeks. Prosecutors in the northern state of San Luis Potosi said the bodies of 11 men and two women were found Monday in two SUVs on the side of a road near the border with the neighboring state of Zacatecas.
Melania Trump did not visit the president in hospital because she didn't want to expose Secret Service agents to the risk of coronavirus, according to reports. Quoting an anonymous White House official, NBC News reported the first lady remained in isolation on the weekend over concerns of spreading the Covid-19 infection. "She has Covid," the official told NBC News on Saturday.
With her vacant stare and vapid, press release-y talking points, Ivanka Trump does not come off as someone who has a good sense of humor. Neither is Ivanka's first inclination to turn her father's diagnosis into an Instagram aesthetic, superimposing footage of Trump's return from Walter Reed Medical Center over a twinkling background. “You are a warrior and will beat this,” Ivanka wrote on Friday evening after her father posted a video announcing he would be admitted to the hospital.
None of the actions taken by the U.S. Bureau of Land Management under a director deemed illegitimate by a federal court judge last month should be invalidated, the Trump administration argued in court papers filed on Monday. Attorneys for the agency, an arm of the Department of Interior that oversees nearly 250 million acres of public lands, said a review showed "no relevant acts taken" by William Perry Pendley during the more than 400 days he lead BLM. Late last month, U.S. District Judge Brian Morris in Montana ruled that Pendley had served unlawfully as BLM director because he was not confirmed by the Senate as required by law.
The staggering scale of California's wildfires reached another milestone Monday: A single fire surpassed 1 million acres. The new mark for the August Complex in the Coast Range between San Francisco and the Oregon border came a day after the total area of land burned by California wildfires this year passed 4 million acres, more than double the previous record. Gov. Gavin Newsom said the amount of land scorched by the August Complex is larger than all of the recorded fires in California between 1932 and 1999.
An unexpected statement by two Supreme Court justices dennouncing same sex marriage has caused alarm over the court's direction even before Donald Trump's appointment, Amy Coney Barrett, arrives on the bench. Associate justices Clarence Thomas and Samuel Alito argued on Monday that a landmark decision in 2015 enabling same sex couples to marry created “bigots” of “religious adherents”. Their remarks came as the court declined to hear a a case brought by a former Kentucky county clerk, Kim Davis, who refused to issue marriage licenses to same-sex couples and was sued.
