Audio has emerged of a bitter Hillary Clinton telling campaign donors that the FBI and Russian leader Vladimir Putin cost her the election. The audio comes from a private party with campaign contributors in New York City last week, presumably that Hillary had
Sunday on ABC’s “This Week,” FiveThirtyEight’s Nate Silver said Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton was one state away from losing the election. Silver said, “We show a three-point lead nationally for Clinton, 2-1 favorite. The electoral college map is less solid for Clinton than it was for Obama four years ago, where four years ago
At a recent New York event, a Democratic business titan grabbed me by the shoulder and asked what I thought. I started to say that Donald Trump has the momentum, but he squeezed my shoulder tighter and cut me off. “He’s going to be president,” my friend said with conviction. A similar thing had happened
Nate Silver, Hillary Clinton’s lead in the polls has been declining for several weeks, and now we’re at the point where it’s not much of a lead at all.

The Republican National Convention’s “Make America Work Again” day was devoted almost entirely to keeping one woman – Hillary Clinton – from getting a job.

Ari Lieberman, It’s been a rough couple of weeks for Donald Trump. The campaign was temporarily sidetracked with ancillary issues involving the ethnicity of a judge presiding over an obscure case that no one really cares about.

Ben Shapiro, *Warning: Language We all got it wrong.
