  • Why Trump Is Routing the Free Traders by Patrick J. Buchanan

    On trade, Bernie Sanders is closer to Trump. Even Hillary Clinton has begun to renounce a TPP she once called the "gold standard" of trade deals.

  • Warren Not Seen As Boost To Clinton Presidential Ticket

    Massachusetts Senator Elizabeth Warren joined Hillary Clinton on the presidential campaign trail earlier this week, fueling speculation of an all-woman national ticket. But most voters - including Democrats and women - say a vice presidential nomination for Warren wouldn't help Clinton's chances for the White House.

    A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone and online survey finds that just 17% of Likely U.S. Voters say they’d be more likely to vote for Clinton for president if Warren is her running mate. Twenty-nine percent (29%) say they would be less likely to vote for the presumptive Democratic nominee if the senator from Massachusetts is on the ballot with her. Fifty percent (50%) say a Warren VP pick would have no impact on their vote. (To see survey question wording, click here.)
