Polls show Bernie Sanders popularity among all voters is plummeting

One of the arguments Bernie Sanders' fans made during the 2016 Democratic primary was that he was more electable than Hillary Clinton. His favorable ratings with the general electorate were far higher than Hillary Clinton's. Indeed, Sanders maintained fairly high favorable ratings with all voters as late as 2018.

Bernie Sanders Hires Fierce Biden, Beto, Harris Critic As Top Adviser

Bernie Sanders has brought an old ally back into the fold — one who has a long-running history of painting a number of Sanders’ top 2020 foes as being corporatist traitors.

Sirota began his career in populist-liberal politics, working as Sanders’ press secretary back when he was a House member before working for a number of Democratic candidates and elected officials...

TOMS RIVER, N.J. (AP) — The man charged with killing the reputed boss of the Gambino crime family had a symbol on his hand that some say is associated with a conspiracy theory. Anthony Comello was arrested Saturday in the death of Francesco “Franky Boy” Cali. Before a hearing in New Jersey, Comello held up his left hand.

Beto O'Rourke raises $6 million in first 24 hours of campaign as Republicans crank up attacks

Word travels fast through the corn fields of Iowa - and the word among Democrats is that Beto O’Rourke could be the real thing.

"He's Obamaish," said Jenny Turner, 38, a Republican voter who stopped in at an O'Rourke event to see what all the fuss was about. "I...

A thought experiment on the Trump presidency

Let’s conduct a thought experiment. This is something like hypnosis, but don’t worry, nobody’s going to bark like a dog or quack like a duck. Ready? Concentrate your mind on this: Imagine that Hillary Clinton was elected president in 2016. No weeping, no screaming. Just concentrate. See her in the Oval Office. See her cabinet. See her policies. See her signing executive orders and new legislation. Now imagine that it’s March 2019 and the Wall Street Journal is reporting, “The job market doesn’t ...

CONCORD, N.H. (AP) — The Sanders Institute, a think tank founded by Democratic presidential candidate Bernie Sanders’ wife and son, is shutting down, at least for now, amid criticism that the nonprofit has blurred the lines between family, fundraising and campaigning.

Beto O'Rourke Is Already Getting The Rockstar Treatment

Although Beto O'Rourke officially kicked off his presidential campaign on Thursday morning with a video, what everyone will truly remember from his announcement is the dreamy, Americana-infused, Annie Leibovitz-shot Vanity Fair cover story published the day before, in which O'Rourke, who spent his youth as a freewheeling musician, talks in poetry: "Man, I’m just born to be in it."O'Rourke's rise to national superstardom happened when he came closer than anyone expected to beating the loathed Te...

Bernie Sanders Boosts Foreign Policy Cred For 2020 With Yemen Vote Win
