If the last 24 hours is any indication, the president’s reelection campaign has yet to settle on a coherent strategy to counter Joe Biden’s vice presidential pick.
President Trump suggested that even an opponent as formidable as the nation’s first commander in chief would have had difficulty unseating him before the coronavirus pandemic.
Former Vice President Joe Biden is projected to win primaries in Michigan, Mississippi and Missouri, solidifying his lead over Sen. Bernie Sanders in the race for the 2020 Democratic presidential nomination.
Biden leads Sanders by 13 percentage points in Michigan, 11 points in Wisconsin and 28 points in Pennsylvania.
Republicans are once again gearing up to attack the former vice president and his son Hunter over their dealings in Ukraine.
Both Biden and Sanders claim they can win back blue-collar Obama-Trump voters. Next Tuesday, Michigan will put them to the test — and potentially decide the nomination.
Riding a wave of momentum, former Vice President Joe Biden scored a series of impressive primary victories on Super Tuesday, while Bernie Sanders won four states, including California.
How big is Bernie’s “movement”? Can Biden catch up? Super Tuesday will do more to clarify the contest than anything else that’s happened so far.
A new Yahoo News/YouGov poll suggests that Sanders could be a riskier nominee than his supporters are willing to admit.
There’s one big issue the Vermont senator has reversed himself on — and it could complicate his path to the nomination.
The problem, Sanders's rivals say, isn't just that he is unelectable. It’s that nominating him would make dozens of down-ballot Democratic House, Senate and state legislature candidates more vulnerable too.
A GOP strategist who tried to stop Trump in 2016 says that Democrats have seven days left to stop Sanders — starting with the South Carolina debate.
Those opposed to the Vermont senator's candidacy have suggested his rivals dropping out could stop him, but polling shows it could help him.
After a successful debate skewering of the billionaire former mayor, the Massachusetts senator has to make up ground quickly in the primary.
On Wednesday Bloomberg himself will finally appear, live and in person, to debate his Democratic rivals. The question now is whether he will live up to his own (very, very expensive) hype.
The former New York City mayor didn’t endorse Obama in 2008, and was sharply critical of him in 2012. But that hasn’t stopped him from featuring the 44th president prominently in his ads.
Democratic candidates and President Trump took fresh aim this week at the former New York City mayor who has staked his personal fortune on winning the White House.
If and when only two candidates are left standing, more Democrats would side with Sanders than with anyone else — no matter who his last remaining rival is.
The problem with the argument that Bloomberg isn’t running a real campaign with real supporters, however, is that it isn’t true. And progressives — particularly those who want Sanders to win the Democratic nomination — ignore that at their peril.
Bernie Sanders won the most votes in Iowa. He leads every New Hampshire poll. He’s starting to pull ahead nationally for the first time. And he’s lapping the field with his mammoth fundraising. Yet on the eve of New Hampshire’s Tuesday primary, his rivals have mostly spared him their attacks. Why?
The state of Biden's campaign is far shakier than his longtime lead in the national polls would suggest. In fact, it may already be on its last legs.
Bloomberg made a bet that no consensus candidate would emerge by Super Tuesday and that Democrats would eventually turn to him (and his $60-billion fortune) to fill the void. Is it paying off?
Confused about what happened Monday night in the much-hyped Iowa caucuses? If history is any guide, next Tuesday’s New Hampshire primary should finally bring some clarity to the Democratic presidential contest.
“Enfranchising 16-year-olds would be good for them and good for our democracy.”
“At 16, most kids have little awareness of politics, civics, or American history.”
“Voting is habit forming...which underscores the importance of having as stable an environment as possible for the youngest voters.”
“Keeping the voting age at 18 is not a slap at 16-year-olds. It is recognition that an informed electorate is the best kind.”
“When young people’s participation lags badly, issues important to them receive short shrift in the public discourse.”
