Rick Wilson is a GOP strategist and consultant who ran George W. Bush's campaign in Florida and moved to NYC to run Giuliani's mayoral campaign. He's probably best known now as an inveterate Trump-hater on cable TV. He's also author of the best-selling Everything Trump Touches Dies. Yesterday...

Trump and ABC News expected a ratings bonanza for last Sunday's hour-long special with George Stephanopoulos. It sure wasn't Game of Thrones; instead it was a stinker. It came in 3rd in the time slot, with just 3.91 million viewers. By way of comparison, the big ratings winners that night were...

Kirsten Gillibrand already re-started her campaign launch-- twice. It didn't do a bit of good either time. No does the whining about how everyone is ignoring her because she's a woman... as Elizabeth Warren, Kamala Harris and even Amy Klobuchar leave her in the dust. Her polling...

Bernie's ideas seem very popular. Have you noticed? And that means Third Way, a major player among those who are part of the Republican wing of the Democratic Party, is on the attack. Matt Bennett, Third Way’s senior vice president, when talking about senators running for president noted that...

I can't say I watched the whole Chris Matthews town hall in Montgomery County, Ohio (Dayton), a county that swung from 145,997 (52.5%) for Obama and 128,679 (46.3) for McCain in 2008 and 137,139 (51.5%) for Obama and 124,841 (46.88%) for Romney in 2012 to 123,909 (47.97%) for Trump and 122,016...

Whenever I encounter Republicans, they mouth a lot of fear-based nonsense in defense of their Putin-loving president and their hate for "others." One of the most common things I hear from such people is "Socialism never works." They don't like their money going to other...

Early this morning, around sunrise, the Washington Post published a piece by Aaron Blake, This Is Trump's Worst Poll Number-- And What It Means. "There is one poll question I keep coming back to when I think about President Trump’s 2020 reelection campaign," he wrote. "It’s the one in...

No matter what Netanyahu's motivation, Trump was quick to use his gesture as a valuable resource. But could you imagine building a home in a town in a contested war zone named for the most hated man on the planet? I travel to some pretty dangerous places... but I'll be taking a hard...

So many new polls! And they all pretty much say the same two big things, neither of which, so far out from the primaries, let alone the 2020 election day, should be taken as a sure thing:
