Trump's new target: Sanders supporters - 0 views

  •  
    The GOP front-runner has ratcheted up his rhetoric against presumptive Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton in recent weeks, calling her a "crooked" politician who is unqualified to be president. But when it comes to her challenger, Bernie Sanders, Trump has taken a notably softer tone, praising the Vermont senator's rhetoric and encouraging him to launch a third-party bid.

Ted Cruz to name Carly Fiorina as VP - 1 views

  •  
    I think this is a brilliant move for Ted Cruz.I have heard many people say that they would vote for Hillary because she is a woman, so Curz may win some of their votes since he planning to make Fiorina his VP. He will also win the votes of Fiorina's delegates.

  •  
    The Democratic and Republican presidential front-runners laid out a potential fault line in what would surely to be a heated general election clash after they both swept much closer to closing out their party nominations. Clinton relished a chance to lay into Trump in her victory speech in Philadelphia after winning four out of the five Northeastern primary contests.

Ted Cruz, John Kasich join forces to stop Donald Trump - 1 views

  •  
    Within minutes of each other, the pair issued statements saying they will divide their efforts in upcoming contests with Cruz focusing on Indiana and Kasich devoting his efforts to Oregon and New Mexico. The strategy is aimed at blocking Trump from gaining the 1,237 delegates necessary to claim to GOP nomination this summer.
  •  
    I still think that Trump will win Indiana even if it is only Cruz and him going head to head.
    I think whatever states that Kasich and Trump go head to head over will be won by Trump. There is a part of me that thinks that this is not a very great idea but there is a not much else they can do. Trump is gaining votes quickly.

Broken discipline tracking systems let teachers flee troubled pasts - 1 views

  •  
    The USA TODAY NETWORK analysis found many examples of failure of screening at the school district level, including school systems first made aware of troubled teachers on their staffs by journalists.
  •  
    I think that the federal government needs to create a way for the misconduct of teachers to be tracked. Some of the teachers were losing their licence in one state and just moved to a new state to get another licence. The federal government needs to step in since it is affecting all the states.

$182 million: Bernie Sanders equals Clinton - 3 views

shared by egessert on 22 Apr 16 - No Cached
  •  
    The Vermont senator began his bid for the Democratic presidential nomination last year with a sizable financial disadvantage compared to front-runner Hillary Clinton. By the end of last June, Sanders had raised just shy of $14 million for his campaign, less than a third of the $47.5 million Clinton had raised for hers.
  •  
    It's crazy how much he has raised. Considering most of his money just comes from average citizens like you and me, and not big corporations.
  •  
    she would have never got caught if she wasnt being stupid and tailgating. I bet if she wasnt tailgating she would have never got introuble in the first place!!!

  •  
    Their decisive wins usher in a new phase in the 2016 campaign. Both Trump and Clinton have fought bitterly for months to keep their rivals at bay, each slogging through primary contests that exposed vulnerabilities in their candidacies and campaigns.
  •  
    I don't know why but I don't think trump winning the race is a good idea
  •  
    I think Trump is doing a good job of getting his name out there and winning votes. I think it is very likely that he will win the nomination. I have no idea who will win the democratic

Ben Carson: Keep Jackson where he is, put Tubman on the $2 bill - 0 views

  •  
    Carson lacks political correctness and tact. It's no wonder he was incapable of winning the presidency. The $20 bill is a much greater honor than the rare $2 bill.

  •  
    Clinton didn't take any shots at Sanders during her first post-New York rally on Wednesday night, instead delivering her standard stump speech and casting the April 26 primaries in Pennsylvania, Delaware, Connecticut, Rhode Island and Maryland as a "great opportunity to start us on the path to the White House."

    Conservative justices questioned Obama's authority to use executive actions to shield some 4 million undocumented immigrants from deportation. Chief Justice John Roberts and Justice Samuel Alito seemed particularly concerned with language in the administration's guidance that said the program's recipients would be "lawfully present," which they suggested would contradict immigration law.
