  • Patrick J. Buchanan, The American Conservative

    If she were debating John Kasich or Jeb Bush, neither the viewing audience nor the title-fight excitement of Monday night would be there. Specifically, what does Trump need to do? He needs to show that he can be presidential. He needs to speak with confidence, but not cockiness, and to deal with Clinton’s attacks directly, but with dignity and not disrespect. And humor always helps.

  • Paul Bedard, Washington Examiner

    In just a year, Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump and his close-knit family and team of social media warriors have shattered Internet records, collecting over 30 million followers and fans and generating billions of views.

  • George Neumayr, The American Spectator

    How a society treats its most vulnerable members, we’re told by Hillary, is the true test of its character. But by that standard she has none. She favors killing the weak in the womb. Look at her clamoring for the elimination of the Hyde Amendment. That policy is nothing more than Margaret Sanger’s vision of government-financed abortions for undesirables (which will lead ultimately to government-forced abortions).

  • Matt Lewis, Roll Call

    If we’re talking solely about 2016, you could argue that Trump might be the only Republican who can handle the media onslaught — and who has the media smarts to manage it. Republicans who voted for The Donald in the primary wanted a street fighter who could fight fire with fire. We will soon know if their wish came true.

  • Tom Bevan, Real Clear Politics

    Hillary's personal history and the cross-currents of this election in an evenly divided and highly partisan nation make it difficult for her to appeal to enough voters to lead her opponent by 10 points, let alone 50.

  • Ben Kamisar, The Hill

    Hillary Clinton's leads are shrinking in the battleground states of Colorado and Virginia, according to a new poll from Quinnipiac University that also shows Donald Trump up in Georgia and Iowa. The findings reflect a tightening in the presidential race across the country, as Trump, the Republican presidential nominee, continues to make up ground in swing states ahead of next week's presidential debate.

  • Matthew Nussbaum, Politico

    Mike Pence has frequently hit Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton for what he calls a lack of integrity, but Thursday marked the first time he implicated Bill Clinton in the argument. He avoided his typical indictment of Hillary Clinton's use of private email server while secretary of state, instead focusing his attack on her husband.

  • Robert Zapesochny, The American Spectator

    With a presidential debate looming, I doubt any of the moderators will ask Hillary a question about presidential pardons. None of them will say, “Secretary Clinton, even the Democrats wouldn’t defend the Marc Rich pardon. Will you promise that there will be no pardons for sale in your administration? How can you guarantee that?”

  • Byron York, Washington Examiner

    "I think they should remember the loyalty they were given by millions of Americans," Sessions said of the Bushes. "They should objectively analyze who is likely to advance best the agenda they favor and the agenda the Republicans who supported them favored. And that's clearly Donald Trump."

  • Burgess Everett, Politico

    Two months after snubbing Donald Trump at the Republican convention, Ted Cruz is now praising the GOP presidential nominee for inserting himself in Congress' eleventh-hour negotiations over a government funding bill. "Appreciate @realDonaldTrump’s support of our efforts to keep the internet free," Cruz tweeted on Wednesday afternoon.

  • Jeffrey H. Anderson, The Federalist

    This election is about more than manners or a battle of personalities. The stakes go far beyond that. Much depends on whether the next president will do the following three things: one, Preserve the Constitution; two, Restore our borders; and three, Repeal Obamacare.

  • Stewart Lawrence, Daily Caller

    Maine, especially the northern part of the state, has gone conservative in a big way since 2011, when LePage took office.  He hasn’t always been popular but the state is clearly trending away from the Democrats and could end up in the GOP win column in November.

  • Streiff, RedState

    You can postulate that people are writing off Trump's goofs as "oh, that's just Trump saying stupid stuff again" while Clinton's email, the Clinton Foundation, and her health are all easily understood stories and they all speak to dishonesty and a general unfitness to be president.

  • Naomi Jagoda, The Hill

    Conservatives on the House Judiciary Committee clamored Wednesday for the impeachment of IRS Commissioner John Koskinen as the panel’s chairman zeroed in on the agency’s preservation of email records. House Freedom Caucus Chairman Jim Jordan (R-Ohio) said that impeaching Koskinen is “the least we can do.” He also said that the IRS is still targeting conservative groups for extra scrutiny, citing a court opinion from August.

  • George Neumayr, The American Spectator

    After every eruption of Islamic terrorism, Americans have been instructed by the ruling class’s propagandists not to see it as evidence of a “religious war.” But it is a religious war, with the exception that only one side is fighting it. In Hillary’s flailing and stale claim that rhetorical intemperance is provoking Islamic terrorism, ISIS can take true comfort, insofar as it signals yet another white flag in the war. Nothing encourages an enemy more than the prospect of victory against a weak opponent.
