Presidential Horse Race 2016: Spirited Democrats spew more anti-Trump slime on Day Two of the DNC

Democrats continued their assault on Donald Trump during day two of the DNC and Bill Clinton even tried to pass off his wife as a change agent. Plus, Size doesn’t always matter, at least when it comes to convention bounces; All roads lead to Pennsylvania for Trump’s best chance to take blue territory; Democrats admit they’re worried about more email trouble, and, Rush says Trump is hack-proof and there’s more out there on Crooked Hillary.

The Hillary-Alinsky-Lucifer Connection

Paul Kengor, The American Spectator

Hillary Rodham headed off to the Northeast for college, where her conservative father paid handsomely for her left-wing indoctrination. In 1968, Hillary wrote her undergraduate thesis at Wellesley on — of all subjects — Saul Alinsky and his tactics. She quite literally studied Alinsky, and not merely distantly from the pages of a book.

Will Putin Get a Pulitzer?

Patrick J. Buchanan, BernardGoldberg.com

For publishing stolen Defense Department secrets, the Pentagon Papers, the Times got a Pulitzer Prize. If the Russians were helpful in bringing to the attention of the American people the anti-democratic business being done at the DNC, perhaps the Russians deserve similar recognition. By the Times’ standard of 1971, maybe Putin deserves a Pulitzer.

Yes, of course Donald Trump can win

Chris Cillizza, Washington Post

The race is close today and there's plenty of reason to believe it will stay like that all the way until the election. For those who say Trump can't win, you probably said he would have never made it this far. All assumptions need to go out the window in an election like this one. Trump seems to understand that.

Trump Adding Bernie Voters To His Forgotten American Coalition

Opposition to free trade is one of the few major policy positions shared by Sanders and Trump supporters and some pro-Bernie demonstrators outside the Democratic National Convention said they are voting for Trump. “He knows how to create jobs,” said John Smith, a 58-year old air conditioning and refrigeration technician from Philadelphia. “What has she done? Her husband signed that NAFTA agreement.”

Donald Trump will run a great race for president

R. Emmett Tyrrell Jr., The American Spectator

Possibly the Democratic Party is more united, but the Republican Party is different. It is more variegated. Its members stress different issues: social issues, economic issue, issues of foreign policy. Nevertheless one thing everyone I talked to in Cleveland agreed on: beating Crooked Hillary. On that there was no disagreement, and this fall I believe they will beat Hillary.

CHAOS: Bernie Delegates Plan To Block Kaine Nomination, Disrupt Democrat Convention

Leon H. Wolf, RedState

Bernie's delegates to the Democratic convention are furious about the revelations in the wikileaks document dump, as well as the revelation that Hillary is bringing Debbie Wasserman Schultz onto her campaign and thus is showing absolutely no contrition.

Ted Cruz Defends Decision Not To Endorse Trump: What Do You Think?

At some point Ted Cruz’s feud with Donald Trump and the insults traded between candidates during the Primary are not our problem. What is our problem, however, is living in an America governed by Hillary Clinton. Click here to take our CHQ poll and tell us what you think: Did Ted Cruz commit political suicide by refusing to endorse Donald Trump?

The Democrats’ Email Scandal: Hillary Clinton Corrupts Everything She Touches

If what’s been documented in “Clinton Cash,” the private email server scandal, and now the revelations that Democratic National Committee Chairman Debbie Wasserman Schultz bent the rules to help Hillary Clinton obtain the Democratic Party's nomination for President aren't wrong to Democrats, then nothing Bill and Hillary Clinton might do in the White House will be wrong either.

A Much Needed History Lesson For Ted Cruz, Marco Rubio and Scott Walker

Republican primary voters tend toward primogeniture and they may make a cause out of a closely fought loss, as Nixon’s supporters did over his 1960 loss to John F. Kennedy and Reagan’s conservative supporters did in 1976 after he was denied the Republican nomination, but it appears that general election voters have a higher standard and they will never forgive or look at a sore loser as worthy of the highest office in the land.

Hillary and the NAACP Mob

George Neumayr, The American Spectator

The media was too busy scrutinizing Melania Trump’s prose to parse the outrageous meaning of Hillary’s NAACP speech. And let’s see if MSNBC’s Chris Matthews, who got so worked up about the GOP inviting the mother of a Benghazi victim to its convention, will show anywhere near the same ire at Hillary’s “mothers” when they appear in Philadelphia to call cleared cops “murderers.”

Clinton’s Lead Is As Safe As Kerry’s Was In 2004

Nate Silver, FiveThirtyEight

While Obama won twice with pre-convention leads of 3 to 4 points, John Kerry went into his convention with a lead of about 3 percentage points in 2004, but lost to George W. Bush. And in 2000, Bush had about a 4-point lead on the eve of the conventions, but lost the popular vote to Al Gore. (Bush won the Electoral College, of course.)

The continuing political decline of Hillary Clinton

Aaron Blake, Washington Post

It's hard to overstate just how bad Clinton's numbers are. And a new Washington Post-ABC News poll is the latest to suggest they just keep getting worse — so much so that they are in some ways about as bad as Trump's.

The Melania And Rudy Show Built The Trump Brand

Trump’s goal, as we see it, was to build and reinforce his brand, as much through non-verbal as through verbal communications. By keeping establishment Republicans like Paul Ryan, that millions of Americans hate, off the stage, and by putting Mrs. Trump, the very embodiment of the Trump brand, plus a highly targeted group of political outsiders on the stage, Trump went far in accomplish that goal.

Presidential Horse Race 2016: Turmoil and red meat at the first day of the Republican Convention

The evening program of the first day of the Republican National Convention offered plenty of interest, but the “stars” of the show were not necessarily the ones you would expect. Plus, #NeverTrump wanted convention chaos and in getting it killed necessary reforms of the RNC that conservatives have been working on for years; Ted Cruz will back Trump because everyone will be better off when The Donald wins, and, Beyond Cleveland, Trump is just getting started.
