Democratic elections expert David Shor has a stark warning: if Democrats think they're sitting pretty, they're deluding themselves.
President Donald Trump claimed that the United States will experience an economic “disaster” if Democrat Joe Biden wins this year’s general election.
“I think if he wins, you’re going to end up with a disaster,” Trump said on Fox Business.
President Donald Trump attacked Senator Kamala Harris (Calif.), Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (N.Y.), and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (Calif.) during a freewheeling interview with Fox Business.

62 percent of voters in the battleground states of Arizona, Florida, Michigan, North Carolina, Pennsylvania, and Wisconsin believe enhanced unemployment benefits should be extended, according to polling published Wednesday by CNBC/Change Research. All of the aforementioned states are swing states in play for November’s general election.
After many months of skirting the issue, a number of prominent GOP officials have gone all in on masks. On Sunday, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell tweeted out a video extolling the virtues of face coverings. Even Donald Trump, himself, posted a picture wearing a mask last week.
Mitch McConnell has warned Democrats not to change any of the Senate’s rules if they win in November. He’s particularly concerned about maintaining the filibuster.
The Senate Majority Leader made the remarks on the Senate floor on Thursday as it has become more and more likely Republicans will be swept from office this year.
According to the latest CNN poll conducted by SSRS, President Donald Trump lags 14 points behind Joe Biden, the presumptive Democratic nominee. Trump’s approval rating of 38 percent is a 7 percent drop as Americans condemn his response to the protests against racial injustice and police brutality that have captivated the nation since the death of George Floyd, a black man who died in police custody in Minneapolis, made national headlines. 57 percent of those surveyed say they disapprove of the president’s job performance.
A new super PAC, called 43 Alumni for Biden, has been formed by former staffers of George W. Bush, according to paperwork submitted earlier this week. The news comes just days after the former president issued a statement along with his wife, former First Lady Laura Bush, calling for Americans to unify as protests grip the nation following the killing of George Floyd, an unarmed black man who died in police custody in Minneapolis.
An ad commissioned by Priorities USA, the country’s largest Democratic Super PAC, and aimed at Hispanic voters in Florida, compares President Donald Trump to Latin American authoritarians, or caudillos.
Presumptive Democratic nominee Joe Biden’s lead over President Donald Trump has grown in North Carolina, a state increasingly in play for Democrats during this year’s general election.
According to the latest survey from the left-leaning firm Public Policy Polling (PPP), Biden has a 4-point lead over Trump 49 percent to 45 percent, the biggest lead for Biden ever recorded in a PPP poll of North Carolina voters.
Presumptive Democratic nominee Joe Biden holds a 10-point lead over President Donald Trump ahead of the November election, according to the latest ABC News/Washington Post poll.
53 percent of registered voters say they would vote for Biden compared to the 43 percent who said they would vote for Trump. That’s a significant change from the last ABC News/Washington Post poll published two months ago when Biden led Trump by only a 49-47 percent margin.
The latest OH Predictive Insights (OHPI) survey finds former Vice President Joe Biden leads President Donald Trump by seven points (50 percent to 43 percent) in Arizona, a state that has no gone to a Democrat since Bill Clinton won it in 1996.
Even if Democrats win the presidency this year, it would be hard for any Democratic president to get a lot done with policy, given the current make-up within Congress.
While Democrats control the House of Representatives, currently Republicans have a majority in the Senate, with 53 senators in the “upper house” part of the GOP caucus.
Since becoming Speaker of the House in January, Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) has had to balance the goals of far-left progressives in her party with moderate Democrats who won districts in 2018 that Donald Trump had carried in 2016.
Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi has guaranteed victory for her party in the 2020 elections. One of the ways she will make good on her promise is by making sure the House passes popular bills which will be rejected by the White House and the GOP-controlled Senate.
According to The Washington Post this morning, Donald Trump will not attempt to get Congress to pass legislation on healthcare — including changes to the Affordable Care Act (ACA, or Obamacare) — until after the 2020 elections.
Rep. Tulsi Gabbard (D-Hawaii), a 2020 Democratic presidential candidate is now saying that if special counsel Robert Mueller had indicted Donald Trump it would have eventually “led to civil war.”
Gabbard issued a lengthy statement that she posted on Twitter:
At midnight on Friday Trump’s disastrous shutdown entered its fifth week. Although the president himself is immune to the financial consequences, many millions of Americans are not immune, and are starting to suffer. We are hearing reports of federal workers being evicted from their homes, going to soup kitchens, and selling off their possessions at pawn shops and on Craigslist.
Everybody knows that President Donald Trump has many enemies and detractors in the new Democratic-led House of Representatives.
But it’s now becoming apparent that many Republican members of Congress are also not fond of the president or his policies, and are looking for ways to distance themselves from him. The reason, they say, is to try to assure their own political survival in the future.
