General election

Labour party leader Jeremy Corbyn’s high five went very wrong.
U.K. Prime Minister Theresa May has unexpectedly called a general election on June 8th. With the latest opinion polls suggesting her Conservative party has a huge lead, it’s an opportunity for her government to boost its majority as it hammers out a Brexit deal.
Investors have been cautious about taking large positions due to mounting uncertainty about next week’s election.
Despite all of the ways Trump has demonstrated his total unsuitability to lead the United States, nearly half of America's voters seem willing to cut him enough slack to quite possibly elect him.
Trump's campaign is now going to fully commit to "letting Trump be Trump." Because, obviously, the problem all along has been that Trump wasn't being Trump enough. Obviously.
The announcement comes as Clinton gains momentum in the polls against Donald Trump, whose campaign has struggled after a string of controversial remarks.
If the past is any prologue, by the end of the week nobody's going to even remember this speech, because by then Trump will have had at least two or three blowups out on the campaign trail -- which will become the story, instead.
With more than a week of post-convention polling in the books, there is a consistent and significant swing towards Hillary
Some supporters, convention demonstrators, and one national delegate for Bernie Sanders from Ohio I interviewed say they see Clinton's nomination as not merely a victory for an opposing candidate, but a larger statement of gross injustice to American voters.
It is time to consider which candidate offers the empathy, experience, trust, and respect critical to the United States and to how we are viewed around the world.
No candidate should assume they’ve got “the Latino vote.”
Obama was a terrific legislative fighter. But he was reluctant to take his fight with the Republicans public. That and his pivot to deficit reduction helped set up the epic Congressional reverses in 2010. His Administration was never able to pass major legislation again. How does all this spill over onto Hillary Clinton?
While the media and political analysts are writing the obituary of the Republican Party and predicting Trump's inevitable loss in November, I'm keen on illuminating his rise and why he might be able to win.
I'm going to say something radical here: I've been where those people saying those things are at... and I've evolved past
Several Republicans who were savaged, slandered and humiliated by Trump have lined up to endorse him. That craven group includes House Speaker Paul Ryan, his wetness Little Marco Rubio, and John ("I like people who were not captured") McCain. Do these people have no self-respect, and no concern for their country? Surely, they have not had a conversion experience and concluded that Trump will be a great leader. Still worse are people like Mitch McConnell, the Republican leader in the Senate, who provide excuses for Trump's outbursts. After Trump's attack on Judge Curiel and threats to use the presidency to go after him, McConnell helpfully explained that a President Trump would be constrained by the advice of a White House Counsel -- as if Trump's inner staff would be anything but Putin-style flunkies.
Donald Trump all but declared war (once again) on the media this week, after they actually did their jobs and investigated whether Trump had made good on his claims of donating millions to veterans' charities.
Paul Manafort explains why his boss is “gonna win,” no prob.
